' - ' - ' t e4icaticH . S l TO ' DR. A, J. JACOBSON If there is any single quality which serves to raise man ' s head and pay his passage across the face of this earth, it is surely found in the act of subordinating himself for an ideal . . . Often, in voicing his mind and raising his cc nvictions, the individual falls, but so long as his voice is echoed in the minds of other men, he lives . . . For this world on which we tread today is more than a three dimensional thing of brick and steel. It is a small part of crea- tion in which the thought and the works of man can survive his life-span and mirror his achievements, a platform from whence his influence can be felt by those yet unborn. In this is a man ' s immortality manifested ... It is fitting that we who are in college so that we might hear, see, and pass our own judgments on the efforts of those who have pre- ceded us, to dedicate this record of our year to all men everywhere who stood straight in the face of overwhelming opposition and gave voice to their opinions . . . Right or wrong, important or trivial, it is to the sincere conviction and to the courage that it takes to turn conviction into effect, that we dedicate this 1955 Artemisia . . . ■ JBSj ' .t " j M M tm ' mm jSs ' m%: yy ni i i.HiJ G iD e t H c t S Ht e J a e Greetings to the Students and Alumni of tlie University of Nevada Of deep significance, and, I feel certain, of utmost pride to all who call Nevada their home, is the steady, productive growth and expansion of the University of Nevada ... It is reassuring to note the progress being made at the state ' s only institution of higher learning. Certainly it has advanced far and has gained in respect down through the years ... It is highly significant that the Univer- sity is expanding. There now is a branch of the school in Las Vegas and on the campus of Nevada Southern there is to be a $200,000 classroom to provide space and facilities for those who want to further their education in Nevada . . . That structure was assured upon my recommendation during the 1955 session of the Nevada State Legislature as well as other bond issues for long overdue remodeling projects. Coupled with that was the approval of a two-year budget a quarter of a million dollars more than the pre- ceding biennium ... It all adds up to the fact that advancement thus far can be attributed to the faith Nevadans have in their school and the courage they are showing in meeting financial and moral obligations as substantial citizens of this state . . . The Uni- versity of Nevada always has and always will hold a fond place in my heart; not simply because of nostalgic memories I associate with the University but because 1 firmly believe the school ' s role in making Nevada a better state is paramount . . . Our destiny as a free nation, I am firmly convinced, depends upon a strong, realistic educational system. It is the bulwark against the evils which seek to destroy our fundamental struggle for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Sincerely yours, Charles H. Russell, Governor y k e P t e i 4 e h t The good concept of education must be that it is in the forefront of changing times and ideas. Consequently, the university ideal of today is vastly different than it was half a century ago ... A university ' s aim in this modern-day world must be dual in nature. In addition to giving the student a broadened perspective of culture and understanding, a university must also offer him training in a specialized area. When he enters the pro- fessional world, the world of making a living, he then possesses both the values with which to understand that world, and the technical knowledge that will enable him to make his way . . . This is the aim and ideal of the University of Nevada. We are attempting to improve our own cultural aspect, and at the same time, broaden our scope of specialized learning. We have set our goal on providing the facilities to accomplish these ends. The past two years have been rich in progress. We feel they may indeed mark the beginning of a new era of importance for the University of Nevada. Minard W.

Without them matters such as the budget schedules, publicity and sundrious other things would be in complete turmoil. JIM McNABNEY, Graduate Manager ROBERT LAXALT, University News Service (jfadaate lUHana et Student activities must always lay some of the credit for their success at the door of our graduate manager Jim McNabney. Jim is always ready to help the students, working with them on the Finance Control Board and the Publications Board of the A.S.U.N. and also handling the ASUN Bookstore for the student body. C c 1 1 e e h e a H The University could not function smoothly with- out the diligence of the Deans. As part of the administration it is the Deans who work between the faculty department heads and the president to further the development of programs which will better serve the students educational need. . . . Credit should be given to these men who have put so much of their time and thought into maintaining and improving the standards and academic offerings at Nevada.

This year ' s president Jackie McGowan is from Yerington, Nevada. This campus leader has also served three semesters as president of Pi Beta Phi Sorority, plus being active in many campus organizations. JACKIE McGOWAN A. . % % Throughout the year, campus politics were kept on an even keel, largely through the unstinting efforts of ASUN President Clair Earl, of Theta Chi. As president of the ASUN his duties were manifold, and time consuming. It was largely through his work that the entire student body was able to get the myr- iads of jobs attendant upon any group so large, accomplished. Despite the fact that Clair was kept on the go almost constantly, he was always available to give just a little more time to the student body. As president he was ex-officio member of practically every committee, and club on the campus. CLAIR EARL ROMAINE ROTH, ASUN Secretary FINANCE CONTROL BOARD Dean Plamer, Dr. Morrison, J. Jepson, R.

ASUN Student Government, under the leadership of Clair Earl and AWS presi- dent Jackie McGowan consists of the senate with its various sub-committees of Publications, Finance and Nomina- tions and all the other various com- mittees which so ably handle student activities such as assembly and rally committee and upperclass committees. Officers elected by the student body as a whole are the president, class offi- cers and senators at large. Other lead- ers are appointed through the senate, whose members are chosen from each living group on the campus. Student government functions for the students, to promote activities, to encourage stu- dent participation, to meet the needs of the student body with work on projects such as the Travis Student Union Build- ing ...

Aside from the injuries sustained by key Nevada men, the Wolf Pack came through on top in two conference games midway in the slate by downing the Cal Aggies and Sacramento State . . . This year ' s team did not have a winning season but they had a great deal of fighting spirit. What more could we ask? This year ' s team owes a great deal to these two men.

No attorneys were present . . . just two men with faith in each other and the growth and people of Nevada. BEING RAISED IN NEVADA these men were certain that they knew what you liked to buy, what you liked to eat. Regardless of the size of your family, from young homemakers to large ranchers, Sewell ' s would have what you wanted when you wanted it. 63 STORES GREW FROM THIS SMALL CRACKERBOX STORE IN TUSCARORA that was founded on such very meager savings — spreading throughout other Western States taking Nevada friendliness with them. THIS PLEDGE GIVEN TO THE PEOPLE OF NEVADA 56 YEARS AGO is just as true now as it was then . . . TO BUY TOP QUALITY MERCHANDISE IN CARLOAD LOTS so that YOUR SHOPPING DOLLARS WOULD GO FURTHER. To keep our Stores Modern, up-to-date SUPER MARKETS. To always strive to make YOUR SHOPPING A PLEASURE and the PEOPLE WHO SERVE YOU THE FRIENDLIEST. As time passed, the realization that it took the full time and effort of those in Sewell ' s to keep up with the evergrowing Nevada, all stores were sold except those in OUR STATE . . .

Quite often we hear young people complaining that their future looks uncertoin. They say that in the good old days a student graduating from college could expect to embark on his life ' s work when he completed school. But they point out, the uncertainties of world tension hang over the graduating student. Because of this, some students have adopted an attitude of not caring what happens — of not caring whether they are ful- filling obligations to their families, to their church, or to their communities. These students may think that theirs is a special case, but really it isn ' t. Since the founding of our country, there have been uncertainties facing each generation. For example, students at the time of the Revolutionary War surely didn ' t feel that their future was free. Through the war of 1812, the Civil War, the Spanish-American War, World War I, World War II, and the Korean conflict, young people have hod to assume their respon- sibilities to further the American way of life. And it wasn ' t just in the war years, either . . . the students in depression days certainly faced a grim, uncertain future. Yes, every generation of students has faced difficult prob- lems. But each group over the years has overcome the problems and has gone on to improve our country for the next generation. The fact is, that this decade is the best time in all our history for students to face the challenge of life. And the best of luck to you as you face it!

TO THE LOYAL BUSIKESSMEN AND MERCHANTS FOR THEIR ADS IN THIS YEARBOOK yhe AttemMa ta Seems like the time to wish you young folks godspeed on your educational journey comes oftener than it used to. Must be that life ' s speeding up and we ' re getting older. Certainly looks that way when you take a look at Los Vegas today and then remember what it was 10 years ago. Probably no place on earth has built up and gotten to be an established community in such a hurry. Nevada is still a land of opportunity — we ' re proving it every day. Keep this in mind OS you plan your life ahead. Meanwhile, best wishes to the CLASS OF ' 55. Hope we ' ll be seeing you around for a long time to come. ' ».■ i.
