Ond en The main purpose of any yearbook is to recortl the happenings of the school year for whatever institution that it may rep- resent. So it is with this, the thirty-fifth edition of the North Texas State Teachers College yucca. But to the majority of the student body, the word " history " leaves a somewhat un- pleasant impression when it is connected with any publication. For that group, then, let us say that the 1941 Yucca is the story, in pictures and print, of what hap- pened on our campus during the past twelve months. If you examine these following pages very carefully you will no doubt observe Activities Graduates, seniors, juniors, sophomores, fresh- men . . . you, your roommates, and classmates . . . those with whom friendships are made. Features . . . what happened this year at North Texas in socials, stage, music, forensics, radio, campus publications . . . pictures of interest. i i (Eioo U Organizations that this issue of your annual embodies many changes, some large and some small, from last year ' s Yucai. These changes have been made with one big object in mind — to give you more of what you like best in a yearbook. Informality has been the watchword to everyone connected with the compiling of this edition. Assuming that this is what you like best, we have in every possible manner tried to make this book a true representation of every important event just as it actually happened. Naturally you will find mistakes herein. For such errors we beg your pardon; none were made intentionally. Sorori+ies, fraternities, honoraries, campus clubs ... a history in pictures and print of the fifty different North Texas organizations. Personalities Athletics Favorites, the ten students that you picked as outstanding in the school ' s hottest election; the 1941 Yucca Who ' s Who on the campus. The 1940-1941 sports history of the Teachers College . . . football, basketball, track, tennis, golf, intramurals, and women ' s athletics. ' « j!::: ■.:-.

PRESIDENT OF THE COLLEGE When one attempts to chart the course of civiUzation tlirough past ages, one be- comes impressed cjuite as much with its fadings and its deflections as with tlie gen- eral direction of its progress. Imiced, civihzation is hke the vine, which creeps for- ward, ahering its course with no apparent cause, often growing downward, rather than Hke the towering pine, the central branch of which always reaches higher and higher with the passing of the years. Yet there can be no iloubt that the trend is al- ways upward, each nation or people making great contributions to society and then retreating from the scene as its own strength declines and a new and different cul- ture develops. We are probably living in one of those periods in which the most radical changes in the course of civilization are being made. Historians may record 1941 as the year of one of the world ' s major crises. Certainly many long-established insti- tutions, political, social, and cultural, are now being overthrown and new ones, the nature of which no one can predict, will soon be developed. If the democracies are not completely destroyed by the present struggle — and few of us believe that they will be — the United States, under young people now of col- lege age, will undoubtedly play a major role in the reconstruction of world aftairs. Hence the American college has the greatest opportunity and responsibility it has ever had to give to the leaders of the future a knowledge of the past, with its val- uable contributions and its tragic mistakes, as well as a knowledge of the present, with its potentialities to give to all mankind health, employment, and education. % i (L n . Dean of the College Dean R. B. Harris, Dean of the College since 1934, fills his pipe to enjoy one of his favorite pastimes as he sits by the museum building, a structure that was much newer when he came to the college in 1916. He is Director of the Department of Biology and Director of Extension. Dr. W. H. Bruce, President of Teachers College from 1906 to 1923, still watches the progress of the institution with whose growth he has been prominently connected in the past. Not as physically active as he once was, his eternal spirit of youth still prevails. Theron J. Fouts, Dean of Men, came to North Texas in 1920 as head football coach. Along with directing the men ' s activities on the campus, he is also Director of the Department of Health and Physical Education. fcstJ of km? org Tkm Dean o Men Dean of Women Miss Edith L. Clark, Dean of Women, performs the task of being something of a mother to every girl of the col- lege, directing their activities, settling their problems, and looking out for their general welfare. Registrar and Associate Dean, P. E. McDonald heads an organization that is the historian for every college stu- dent ' s scholastic record. His brisk good humor helps to make this man one of the most loved personalities on the campus. The man who handles the purse strings of the college, Dixie Boyd, is charged with administering the finances of the Teachers College. Mr. Boyd has firmly established himself with his unchanging, democratic efficiency. Regis+rar Busmess Mana ger te DIRECTOR O F PLACEMENT Courted by almost every graduating senior who ex- pects to go into the teaching profession, E. H.

DIRECTOR OF TEA N I N G A recognized authority on curriculum reorganiza- tion, Dr. J. C.

Those of you who have seen previous editions of this book will no doubt recognize the changes that have been made. In this division you will not only find the traditional feature section, but also many other subdivisions, such as Stage, Music, Campus Government, and Publications. Thirty-one pages have been devoted to pictures of college life. In that subdivision you will find one and sometimes two pages devoted to one big incident. The editor felt justified in doing this because of the fact that the many single feature shots have been included in the class section layouts. Stage includes forensics, dramatics and radio. In Campus Government, the various councils that form the operating policies of many of the phases of campus life have been included. Music includes the history of the A Cappella Choir, the Aces of Collegeland, the Sym- phony, the Symphonic Band, the Eagle Band, the Wom- en ' s Glee Club, and the Oratorio Society, while all of the student publications may be found in Publications. V Clt ULKLb.. , . " ?! Summer Session . . . Dog Days Deluxe 1. Dr. Hoole, college librarian, and Mr. Peterson, of the Fort Worth Public Schools library staff, con- duct an informal discussion in one of the many ses- sions held here during the library clinic this summer. 2. This is part of the summer student body who heard Dr. T. V. Smith, former Congressman from Illinois and noted University of Chicago education philosopher, speak in the featured address of the Southern Education Conference which met here dur- ing the first semester of the summer session. 3. Mr. Swenson, of the geography department, takes a look at the stars on a clear night as he and his class get in some practical study in astronomy. 4. Everett Scoggin conducts a chemurgy experi- ment in the recently formed chemurgy division of the college chemistry department. 5. Mr. Octavio Medellin, summer addition to the art department, instructs one of his students as his sculpturing class makes models of fountain pieces, some of which were enlarged and used to decorate fountains on the campus. 6. hielen Prewitt, Juanita Lehrman, and loma Blocker were a few of the many beautiful sights that could be seen every day around the swimming pool. 7. Earl Colbert, the villain, and Nolia Trammell, Little Nell, rehearse a scene in the summer College Players production, the old-time mellerdraymer, " The Moth and the Flame. " 8. President McConnell and Dr. T. V. Smith chat a spell as they are seated on the stage just before Dr. Smith spoke to a full house in the main audito- rium. 9. Librarians and people interested in library work fill the library auditorium during the clinic. 10. Mr. and Mrs. Francis Jones swing down the line in one of the old-time dances. The physical edu- cation club sponsored this type of play night every week on the recreation park slab. 11. Mr. Medellin puts the finishing touches to the piece of sculpturing that he and his assistants erected In the fountain of the library court. 12. Tables over the campus were always filled with someone getting off a last bit of studying or something. 13. Betty Ann Fladger goes Say Ninety in the water carnival produced by Francis Stroup. 14. The miniature golf links in the recreation park always got a rush by play-minded enrollees. r mMM 1 J Class Elections Above, H looks like someone should get elected by fhis many votes. Seniors assembled in the science lecture room at the beginning of the fall term to elect fourth year officers. Left, the juniors elect their leaders for the 1940-1941 year, as they met in the library auditorium. Junior Clovis Cowan, above, whips up a winning smile just after he was made president of that class. At the left we see that the sophomores took their election with a smile and a song as votes are counted in the Harriss gym. Bobby Cloud was really applying fhe old technique to Jean Gathrlght before he was so rudely Interrupted, left. Oh — oh, It looks nice Royden Lebrecht smelled someone Civil Pilot Training The college opened a C.A.A. unit here the first semester, and applicants flocked to get in it. Above can be seen one of the training planes as it flies over the Denton airport where the flying students re- ceived their training. Above right, the first semester stu- dents and their instructors line up in front of a plane for a publicity shot. The scene at the right is just v hat student pilots saw as they flew over the college campus. Lower right, Duane Faw was the first to solo. Below, Maurice Dyche and his instructor con- fer. -is Halloween Carnival 1. Football-minded fans whooped it up to " Let ' s Give A Cheer for North Texas State " in a pep rally held in the main auditorium. 2. Cara Pat Aikin held down a solo part at the Marquis- Terrill Halls ' first formal dance. 3. The East Texas Press Club honored North Texas pub- lications editors and sponsors at a luncheon before the Lion-Eagle football classic on November 16. 4. Kucharski, Gray, Mankin, and Company drank the water cooler dry at the Falcon barn dance held at the Woman ' s Club early in the fall. 5. No one saw the cameraman take this pi cture at the freshman picnic. 6. President McConnell and Mr. Masters look over a unit in Gilbert Wilson ' s sweet potato dehydrating plant. 7. The Trapp family takes a bow after their appearance here in a fine arts number. . Odd Shots 1. Norman Bagwell barks up a little business for the Pi Phi follies, " expelled from Follies Bergere for indecent ex- posure. " 2. The hula dancer takes time out for a scratch. 3. Kaghlir taxi dancers truck out of their lair to tempt unsuspecting males to squander two cents per shuffle. No one was heard crying, " I ' ve been gypped. " 4. Dale Dickie peddles those infernal noise-making con- traptions all over the hHarriss gym, where the carnival was held. 5. This floor space looks rather empty as compared to some parts of the gym on Halloween night. 6. Charlie Dameron and Clovis Cowan drum up some trade for their Talons show that fea- tured the hot steps of Harlem ' s Willie and Millie. 7. Pete Nay " sweats " the participants as they " play " the wheel at the Beta booth. aCTORSl V ' r o 4 £k.P County Fair and Stuff Teachers College s+udenfs were ■found all over Den+on. At the left, It must be four monkey actors in people ' s clothing. The sign says each one is a sap. Can you tell? Second row: At the left, Mary Jo Stone tried to pur- chase some popcorn at the Denton County Fair. In the center shot " Shoot- ' em-up Shuford, " college publicity di- rector, went Wild Bill Hickock when he got a hold of some western regalia in the museum. For some unusual reason Sutton Orenbaum must have lost his last penny at the fair. Ray Olive seems a trifle unhappy over the whole situation. Bottom row: Louie Anderson put the clock on Falcon pledges Solomon and Mackay in their egg roiling contest. Disregarding the attractive background you have, left to right, Brooks, Orenbaum, Urban, Uberman, Williams, El- liott, and Olive at the fair, at the lower right. Kft ' i P f. ' iW •S Masi ' : Saturday Night Stage Show A traditional activity that has been in existence tor many years, is the Saturday night stage show. Directed by Floyd Graham and featuring the Teachers College I stage band, the " Aces of Collegeland, " this program has held its popular position with the entertainment- minded students ot the campus. Every Saturday night, with very few exceptions, the majority of the students usually go to the main auditorium at eight o ' clock to see this program which features and , develops local talent as it is presented preceding the movie. Right, Floyd Graham leads the " Aces of College- land " in a popular tune with a new arrangement by some member of the band. Members of the pit orchestra may . be seen in the foreground. ! Below, we see three shots of typical featured enter- I tainers that help make the thirty-minute program a suc- I cess. Dancers, blues-singers, baritones, tenors, sopranos, 1 accordionists, and comedians all share spot-light honors. Bottom row, may be seen two shots from the program that was given over to the Denton Boy Scouts. Looking Around at i ierce ' The champion Eagle team is seen in their bus as they started for Commerce to take a 10-7 decision trom East Texas, left. Below, George Roever was only one of the many who felt down right happy when the Eagles pushed over the winning touch- down in the last ten seconds of the game. Katyf ..; fref ijBie. w A bunch of the fellers insisted that the picture at the left center be made. Everybody was happy, for some reason or other. Those over-energized North Texas cheer leaders whitewashed the Denton streets before the annual grid battle. Hub Jouette, SIg Dickson and Al Bald- win took on a more sober outlook as the game progressed. jOmmerce Game ' ever wj; " 9 toick , Mary Frances Brunson, Kathryn Neat- ly and Sarah league presented a variety of Interest at the right. Only one out of the three seenns to be watching the game. Coach SIsco and the boys on the bench were not taking things so we along toward the end of the ganne, be low. Johnnie Meade and David Moore did not use their seats very much throughout the entire affair, left. They managed to keep things pretty lively all round them; however, Cook and Hutchinson stayed calm. tiergiie Ray Edwards and ex-student Woodrow Plnk- erton are shown at the right taking things easy before the game started. The hand In front of Edwards belongs to Emma Lou Long. i An Interesting sight to every student is the ancient desk with its nnany hidden compartments, made more unusual by the accompanying story of its history told as only Dr. Kings- bury can tell it. A Trip Through +he Museum Many is the student that has made a trip through the Teach- ers College museum; many is the student on this campus who knows little about the ottlcial State Historical Collection that is on the main floor of the historical building. The Yucca camera- man recorded a typical trip through the place on e afternoon as Dr. J. L. Kingsbury, curator and professor of history, and his assistants showed four freshmen — Opal Zell Saunders, Olga Hendrick, James Nicholson, and Terrlll Sharp a few of the many thousand articles of interest housed there. The buffalo head is one of the many pre- served animal heads mounted throughout the building. Alva Montgomery, chief assistant, thumbs through some of the an- cient volumes in the library collection, lower left, while in the lower center picture he is seen showing college archives to the four. Opal Zell, at bottom right, holds a minia- ture Buddha in her hand as she stands be- side a wooden reproduction of the Chinese God of Plenty. »orb ii The four freshmen tried to drive off the ancient Mason, before they realized that it was jacked up. Terrill is helping Olga into the back seat. E. C. Buell, another assistant in the museum, shows Olga and Opal Zell the rack of old coins and bills. Alva points out strategic points along the English coast line as he explains about the war to Olga and Terrill. 4 Betty Morgan, museum typist, works in the office. James and Opal Zell learn all about the evolution of time from Dr. Kingsbury as he points out the different time-keeping instruments used in years gone by in the exhibit of pieces donated by the Hamilton Watch company.

Directly below, Durward Dyche and Duane Faw are shown in a practice debate. On the bottom row, left to right, are Ruth Nell Whitaker and Mary Frances Harris in the first picture; Nelma Wil- liams, Leah Tate, and La Verne Stark in the second. North Texas forensics students again held a top-ranking position throughout the country. Participating in fourteen tournaments by May I, they entered contests in poetry, radio, ex- temporaneous speaking, oratory, after-dinner speaking, legislative assemblies, debate, progres- sive discussions, conversation, lecture reading, and impromptu speaking. Beginning their intercollegiate competition on October 25, they won honors in meets at Commerce, Southern Methodist University, Millsap College, East Central Oklahoma Teachers College, Baylor, Abilene Christian College, Denver University, Durant. Louisiana Normal, Sam Houston, Trinity, the Southern Speech Association, and the Abilene Provincial tournament. Bullock Hyder and Mrs. Olive M. Johnson of the College faculty coached the following students who placed in one or more of the con- tests: Charlese Vaughan, Winifred Evans, Nel- ma Williams, Michael Taylor, Harold Fergu- son, Carroll Ellis, Maurice Jackson, Betty Jane Timblin, Jack Robbins, Mary Lu Smith, C. W. Vurnam, Dorothy Huffman, Jack Robbins, Norman Bagwell, Mary Frances Harris, Henry Amlin, LaVerne Stark, Leah Tate, and Preston Conner. Many outstanding honors were won by these students. Jack Robbins was elected speaker of the Southern Methodist meet assemblv and Forensics chosen for an award of honor. At San Marcos five ilcbate teams were ratcil as excellent for their performances. Nelma Williams was se- lected as one of the four ranking debaters there. At the East Central Teachers meet five Den- ton debate teams were chosen and recognized as superior. According to rating, Nelma Wil- liams was selected as the highest woman and Jack Robbins as the highest ranking man at the Abilene Christian College contests. At Durant, Oklahoma, N.T.S.T.C. was awarded the sweepstakes cup for registering the highest number of points of any school rep- resented. Henry Amlin and Mary Lu Smith re- ceived individual medals of excellence in extemporaneous speaking; while Betty Jane Timblin, Jack Robbins, and Carroll Ellis were in the awards maile for the ten highest debaters in the tournament. At the Southern Speech Association meeting Betty Jane Timblin was given an award of Spe- cial Distinction in Public Discussion. In the combineil men antl women ' s divisions in those tournaments which announced place winnings, North Texas won eight first places in poetry, three in radio, seven in extempo- raneous speaking, three in after-dinner speak- ing, one in oratory, and five in debate. The remainder of the tournaments an- nounced ratings of teams instead of place win- ners. First year debaters congregated tor a session in the corner ot the prac- tice room. They are, left to right: W. A . Duggan, Margaret Maddy, Joyce Simpson, Harry Kluber, Alvin Whisenburg, Dorothy HutTtnan, David Robbins, C. W. Burnani, Marie Rather, John Massey, and F. B. Hucy.

All members take turns in news broadcasting, announc- ing, acting, script writing, creative sound effects, auditioning, casting, and directing. Members of the group have excelled in radio competition with other colleges. For three years they have presented the " Cap and Bells " broad- casts, a thirty-minute weekly dramatic program over Station KDNT. Some of those given in 1 940-1 941 were Freedom of the Press, National Defense, The Man Without a Country, The Spy, Rip Van Winkle, Christ of the Andes, The Autocrat of the Breakjast Table, Bea Hur, Growth of the American Flag, and Youth In a Democracy. m U 4 L C . . In its third year, the A CappeUa Choir has trav- eled over six thousand miles this year to sing fifty concerts to over 50,000 people. Outstanding appear- ances were made before the Texas State Teachers Association, the Oklahoma Music Educators Asso- ciation, the Texas Legislature, with the Tyler Sym- [ihony Orchestra in Tyler, and the East Texas Chamber of Commerce (Convention. It is a self sup- porting organization. Directed by Dr. Wilfred C. Bain, this group, with the Chapel Choir, presented " St. Matthew Passion " ' by Bach tluring the May 2, .5, antl 4 Bach Festival. mm Aces of Collegeland Sixteen men make up the Aces ot Collegelaiul, the pride of the Satunlay night stage show. Under the chrection of Floyti Graham, this group has been presenting this traditional show continuously since 1927. These campus organization shows give students a chance at self expression. The band is always in demand throughout the Southwest. It plays all engagements that can be playetl and still allow its members to go to sch x)l. It has playetl for the West Texas Chamber of Com- merce .Auditorium Show for the past nine years. Forty-five stage siiows and forty-six dances were presented from September, 1940, to May, 1941. Outside engagements during this term have taken them to McKinney, Fort Worth, Arlington, Wichita Falls, Henrietta, Dallas, Honey (Jrovc, Ardmore, Oklahoma, and other surrounding cities. The Oratorio Society is composed largely of the music majors in the College, and numbers two hundred and fifty altogether. It is a mixed chorus, and this year has an unusually larger bass section than soprano section in the chorus. This year two performances were pre- .sented at the time of the Bach Festival. John Mclntire, of the music faculty, is organist for the Oratorio Society, and Floyd Graham pre- paretl the orchestra for the accompaniments. The Women ' s Glee Club was under the tlirection of Charles Fin- ney during the first semester and Louis Nicholas the second. It made several appearances in and about Denton during the year, and took part in the Bach Festival, singing the Bach " B Minor Mass " with the Chapel Choir ami Denton choirs. Contlucted by Frank McKinley, the Chajiel Choir acts as a feeder for the A Cappella Choir. It fulfilled numerous engagements in and about Denton. On May 2 it presented the great choral work, " St. Matthew Passion, " as part of the Bach Festival. ' " Symphony Orchestra The College Symphony Orchestra ' s organization in the fall included in its personnel seventy-five college musicians. In their first formal concert of the season, November 7, Jud- son Custer, graduate tutor in the department of music, was presented as violin soloist. Again this year the or- chestra, also under the direction of Floyd Graham, in- cluded on its program a full symphony, the Beethoven " Fifth " in C Minor.

Campus Chat Now operating in its twenty-fifth year of publi- cation, the Campus Chat, official newspaper of the North Texas State Teachers College, is written and edited by the students of the College and printed with student labor in the Teachers College Press. Six times in the past seven years the Chat has re- ceived first prize in the judging of the Texas Inter- collegiate Press Association. As the Yucca went to press returns had not been received from the Asso- ciated Collegiate Press, where it received its first All-American rating last year. With a circulation of approximately 4,000, of which 800 are mailed out to subscribers in this and other states and some few foreign countries, the Chat is issued each Friday morning. It not only acts as chronicler of events on the campus for the stu- dents in school, but it keeps the ex-students informed of what goes on at North Texas. Four members of the staff left the campus June 3 for the annual TIPA convention, held this year at the College of Mines at El Paso. They were Ray Ed- wards, vice-president of the state organization, Jack Maguire, Charles Dameron, and Charles Cox.

Associate Editor Dr. F. M. Darnall S|K)ns„r creative-minded students of the College. A.ssisting Editor-in-Chief Jean Walsh in her efforts to adil a few streamlined touches was Sam Ingram, art editor, who produced a series of excellent litho- graphs that gave a new beauty and personality to the magazine. Lithographs were used in all issues of the magazine for cover designs and illustrations for short stories, dramas, and essays. The fall cover, in earth-brown and black, presented a harvest scene; the winter, in cobalt blue and black, carried out the " darky " trend of the issue by picturing burly negro laborers on a wharf. In addition to the covers, high- lights of the magazines were Ingram ' s illustrations of short story writer John Thomason ' s T. I. P. A. first-prize story, " Pie Biter Takes a Chew, " and the presentation of typical negroes, from day laborers and " bronc-busters " to inspired jitterbugs. Associate editors for the fall issue were Virginia Paty and Elton Miles, with Princess Martin replac- ing January graduate Paty for the remaining issues. As proof to would-be literary aspirants that good writing is not only commended but lauded on the campus, the magazine sponsored a contest offering a total of fifty dollars in cash prizes for the three top contributions in each of the major fields of writing, and featured the winners in the fall, winter, and spring issues. The following were winners in the contests: short story, John Thomason, Charles Dam- eron, and Jackye Anderson; drama, Bufonl Ingram, Polly Anna Hadgett, and Robert S. Park, Jr.; in- formal essay, Nal)eane Walker, Elizabeth Ann Mi- zell, and Florice (ireen; formal essay, Lloyd Wil- liams, Oncta Ashley, and Edgar (iriffin; jxx. ' try.

More than ever before, informalitv has been stressed in everything that has been done, as the attempt was made to edit a book about Teachers College students just as they appeared in everyday life on the campus Now we pre- sent it to you for your approval. If you feel that it cleserves such, please accept it as your book of today — for remembrance tomorrow. No particular theme, outside of informality, has been used in this book. What we believe is good photography has been substituted for art work in the opening section and division pages. The staff takes this opportunity to express its sincere appreciation to the following for their co-opera- tion in the production of this book: C. I. Alexander of Tyler for allowing us to use his photograph of the Yucca plants appearing in the opening section; Ray Edwards and the Campus Chat for publicity in getting students to have their class pictures made; Raleigh Usry, 1939 Yucca editor, for his valuable suggestions in producing the book ; THE YUCC.

Southwestern Engraving Company o f Fort Worth, and Bill Mur- phree, sales manager of that organization, should be given credit not only for their excellent work and service in engraving, but also for the latter ' s many ideas in the laying- out and organizing of the book. Miss Virginia Haile, faculty sponsor and mem- ber of the English depart- ment, should be thanked for reading and correct- ing copy. The staff also acknowledges the good work of the Shaw Studio, photographer for the class section for the past few years, and The American Beauty Cover Company of Dallas and Kiel Sterling for their production of an unusual cover for this yearbook. Max, special photographer, is also thanked for an excellent group of special photographs appearing in the tlivision, sub-division, and view sec- tions. He seems to carry a rabbit ' s foot in his pocket for yearbook editors, since every book that he has worked on has received an All-American rating by the National Scholastic Press Critical Service. Mr. J. D. Hall and all of the workers of the Teachers College Press should be congratulated for a fine job of printing, and the work of Fran- cis Reed is acknowledged for his helping out in the photography department. Finally, the editor wishes to thank every member of the staff for his invaluable service all through the year. They worked earnestly and faithfully in order that this book might now be in vour hands. The Ytttcu staff has a busy (lay. lop. Miss Virginia Ilailc, sponsor, is pictured in her home. In the two lower pictures are Charles Cox and Walter Jennings, carbook photographers. Business Manager of Publications Darrell Jones, business manager of publications since June, 1940, has handled the financial side of Teachers College editions for the past year. His job entails solicit- ing advertising for the Campus Chat and Yucca, writing requisitions for supplies, and aiding in the letting of var- ious yearbook contracts. Teachers College Publicity Department The Teachers College Publicity Service has two main functions and a multitude of smaller ones. It has as one job the handling of publicity for all of the major college events as a service to the larger daily newspapers throughout the country; and, as the other, the task of furnishing hometown papers with news of the outstanding activi- ties of its Teachers College students. C. E. Shuford has been director of publicity for the past four years. His student helpers for the past year were Oneta Ashley, general assistant; Lee Hinton, sports writer; and Edith McElheny.

(Pen anaUltle Five girls and five boys were chosen this year by the students of the Teachers College as favorites. This number represents one girl less than the total selected for last year ' s Yucca. Ten boys and ten girls were nominated in a twenty- minute assembly held in the main auditorium on Wednes- day morning, February 12, after the hottest race in the history of the annual event had been unreeled. Betty Jane Timblin, Mary Virginia Burdette, Opal Brundage, Betty Rodriquez, Betty Ann Fladger, Charlese Vaughan, Jean Meade, Margaret Riley, Reva Seaberry and Jean Sansom were the ten girls nominated. The ten boys named were Jack Robbins, Clifford Lott, Boyce Nail, Alva Mont- gomery, David Moore, Durward Dyche, Duane Faw, A. B. Tate, Eugene Wood, Clovis Cowan and Welby Williams. The final election was held one week later on Wednes- day, February 19, in H201. The winning candidates and representatives in this section of the Yucca were Reva Sea- berry, Jean Sansom, Betty Ann Fladger, Jean Meade, Betty Jane Timblin, Boyce Nail, David Moore, Eugene Wood, A.

Eagle Mentors Build Men As Well As Teanns I ntercollegiate sports in North Texas are in the hands of four of the most capable coaches in the Lone Star Conference — Jack Sisco, Henry G. (Pete) Shands, C. C. (Choc) Sportsman, and Fred Cobb. These four men form an axis about which all the athletic teams of the College revolve and it is from this hub tliat Eagle teams have gone forth to win many contests and conference championships. Coaching football falls to the lot of Jack Sisco, who came to Denton in igig and since that time lias guiil- ed the Eagles to five conference championships and has never finished lower than third in the Hag race. While Sisco ' s teams are outstanding for their work as compact machines, he has also proiiuced such indi- vidual stars as Ted Wright, Johnny Stovall, Johnie Riola, and Forest Covin, all four rating Little AU-Amer- ican teams. The secret behind the success of Sisco ' s coaching seems to be in his fine knowletlge of iiow foot- ball should be played and his ability to impart this knowletlgc to his nun. He works hard ami expects every one of his men to ilo the same. On the hardwood floor and ihc tennis courts, the Green and Wliite teams are under the guuling liaiul of veteran coach Pete Shands. Shanils, who came to the College in 1935, has some seventeen years of coaching ex- perience behind him and brought the College its first cage title in 19 8. His teams have won the Lone Star Conference tennis championshij) for the last three years. Widely known for his cinder teams is the track mentor of North Texas, Choc Sportsman, ( oach Sport.s- A Mi An Afternoon Wi+h the Coaching Staff man lias been turning out top teams al Dciitoii since he took u|) tlic duties of head track coach after gradua- tion Irom this college in 1929. His men have blazed a name for themselves and the school at almost every ma- jor meet in the nation. World records have been set by his relay teams in the past four years as he turned out such outstanding performers as Henry Morgan, the Rideout and Brown t ' ins, Alvin Chrisman, and his cur- rent crop of runners who have again established themselves as one of the most outstanding teams in the en- tire nation. Besides coaching intercollegiate sports these three men are members of the physical education department of the Teachers College. Fred Cobb officially joined the North Texas coaching start last fall when he ably assisted Sisco in turning out his second consecutive conference football eleven. Besides helping with the gridiron chores, he is golf coach for the first Denton team to play in Lone Star Conference competition since that sport was declared a full-fledged league athletic activity. A football star at Georgia Tech, he has previously coached at McKin- ney high school. Within this division you will find a record in pictures and print of the 1940-1941 athletic history of the Teach- ers College — football, basketball, track, tennis, golf, in- tramurals, and women ' s activities. For the second consecutive year the Sisco-tutored North Texas Eagles captured the Lone Star Conference football crown as they finished their second complete year of undefeated conference play, and placed five men on the league dream team — Johnie Riola, Bill Sheffield, Boyce Nail, Doyle Walker and Forest Covin. The Denton cagers did not fare so well in basketball, and managed to take only one conference win out of eight opportunities. Choc Sportsman ' s tracksters opened with only moderate speed because of injuries, but grew stronger as the season pro- gressed to again establish themselves as one of the out- standing cinder teams in the country. Fred Cobb ' s golfers played in their first conference links tourney at Nacog- doches, while intramurals and women ' s athletics reached a new high in student participation.

Pre-Season Dope Ten returning lettermen formed the nu- cleus of the squad with which Coach Jack Sisco hoped to win his second consecutive Lone Star Conference title. He took these ten men, added a few transfers and 1939 squadmen, and came up with a team that startled two big Southwest Conference elevens and went through all of its conference opponents without a loss for the second straight year. Those men who had been awarded numerals for last year ' s play who were on hand when pre-season workouts started the first week in September were Captain-elect Bill Sheffield at the center position; Boyce Nail at guard; Ervin " Ickie " Clay and Doyle Walker in the tackle holes; and Forest Covin and James Riggs at the two end positions. Backfield lettermen were Johnie Riola, James McDaniel, Leland Mclntyre, and Welby Williams. Other men out for tlaily practice were Price Truitt, Sutton Orenbaun, Ray Wideman, Sig Dickson, Garvin Mugg, Pete Duhon, Garland Neal, James Bateman, W. H. Worrell, W. A. Hunter, Bud Howe, J. G. Weartherby, Arthur Bronstad, J. D. Clayton, Guy Tankersley, Benny Graham. Vernon Ashton Reveau Stewart, G. G. Ricks, Bob Honeycutt, Eugene Wood, C. L. Carr, Ira DeFoor, Robert Pharr. Roy Kile, and Ted Koonce. Transfers from other schools were Keith Jackson, S. M. U.; Ed Norris, Nick Ruggieri, Nace For- magus, and John Derdak, St. Ed- , f, wards; and Robert Brady, Baylor. Pre-season workouts were just as stiff as the schedule that the Eagles faced. Outside of their regular conference tilts, the North Texans had contests cardeil with Baylor University and Southern Methodist University of the South- west Conference, Arkansas A. i M., and Austin College and Abi- lene Christian College of the Tex- as Conference.

This they did, and when the 1940 campaign was over two more lettermen had distinguished themselves in the eyes of the Lone Star Conference sports writers and coaches and stepped up to take a place on the current edition of the mythical eleven They were Doyle Walker and Forest Co- vin. Covin went further and was named on the second team of the Little All- Amcrican eleven. After dropping their first three conference games to Abilene Chris- tian College, Baylor, and Southern Methoilist by costly mistakes and bad breaks, the North Texans gained momentum and took their la.st six contests with- out a set-back.

Bill Sheffield, center Awarded all-conference honors this season were five members of Coach Jack Sisco ' s Lone Star Conference championship team. These five men were selected in a poll of all the football coaches and sports writers in the Lone Star Conference and were picked not only for their standing as individual performers, but as vital cogs in the football machines with which they worked. ( " hosen to fill the shoes of quarterback on the mythical all-conference eleven for the second successive season was the Eagles ' candidate for Little Ail-Ameri- can, Johnie Riola. Rated as one of the top passers in the Southwest, the little North Texan was a unani- mous choice. Also gaining all-conference recognition for the second consecutive year were two outstanding Eagle linemen, Captain Bill Sheffield, center, and Boyce Nail, guard. Sheffield, playing top-notch ball both on offense and defense, turned in one of the best seasons ever recorded for an Eagle player, and re- ceived honorable mention on the Associated Press rating. Nail, a three-year Icttcrman, missed being a unanimous choice for all-conferciKc- honors by only one point. Doyle Walker, tackle, and Forest Covin, end, were the remaining two Eagles to be given a berth on the mythical eleven. Walker, noted for his standout de- fensive play, played his second straight year as a regular starter on the North Texas team. Covin, picked at the wing position, captured the critics ' atten- tion with his pass snaring and fast charging. He was awarded a [ilace on the Litllc All .American second team.

Fad wtrcsi hisle Gari Coote Samf- F Counts passes uniltr the basket in an attempt to overcome a SFA leail. Sam Houston Bearka+s Down Eagles, 59-49 Facing the Sam Houston Rearkats in their fourth conference go, the Eagles were smothered by the high-scoring Ben Gardner to come out on the short end of the contest, 49 to 59. Hunley, Menefee, and Lloyd netted 8 points each for the Denton quint, but were unable to best the Huntsville marksmen. The Rear- kats led all the way. Gardner threw in 25 points to pace all scorers by a heavy margin. Cole and J. Walker scored 11 and 8 points respectively for the Sam Houston team. Other scorers for North Texas were Captain Counts, with 7 points; Collins, Cooke, and Adams, each with 4 points; and Cox and Tate, each with 3 points. Sam Houston Bests Eagles, 55-46 After assuming an early lead in their second game with the Bearkats, the Eagles gradually fell behind to drop their fifth conference go. The first period of the game was highlighted by the sharpshooting of Woodrow Counts, who sacked a total of 19 points for the Eagles during the course of the game. The final quarter .saw the Eagles rally and start hitting the basket consistently, but the fast-breaking Kats managed to close the game with a nine-point lead, winning 55 to 46. North Texas came within two points of the vis- itors at tile start of the last period, but Cole and |. Walker cinched the game for Huntsville. Jack Cox dropped in 11 points for Denton, while Cole made 22 for the Bearkats.

Austin Lumberjacks for the second time of the year and dropped the sixth consecutive con- ference tilt, 53 to 54. The future league winners laced the Eagles from the start, and Counts ' 13 points, along with the II scored by Menefee, were not sufficient to win for the North Texans. The usual last-quar- ter rally of the Eagles again fell short. Center Van Samford, leading conference scorer, dropped in 23 points for the winners. The North Texans took their only conference win from the San Marcos Bobcats, 53 to 42, as they played their last home game. Ross Collins, young Denton sophomore, proved one of the prime factors in the Eagle victory with his fine defensive play. His guarding of Tatum, San Marcos ace, held the Southwest Texas player scoreless, with the exception of two points made on free throws. High scorer for the Eagles was Bill Menefee, who looped 17 tallies for the locals. Counts and Adams found the basket for 9 and 8 points. Commerce Wins Heartbreaker On the road for their final contest of the season, the Eagles met the Com- merce Lions on their rival ' s court. The haril luck that the Shandsmen suffered all season continued to dog their foot- steps and they were defeated by one point, 35 to 34. During the ragged bat- tle the score was never over three points in favor of either team, and it remained tied for a greater part of the game. Counts and Collins made 9 points each for the Denton team. Rosi C ollins, sophomore guard, is shown at left; Roy Wood, senior guard, at right. Below left.

Eagle Trackmen The constant loss of men by in- juries played havoc with Coach Choc Sportsman ' s cinder chances during the first part of the spring track sea- son. Johnny Jackson, Albert Mikes- ka, and Cecil Redd were among the more unfortunate. This and the failure of Co-Captain Harvey Bryant to return to school seemed to dull the chances of the Eagles for another of their success- ful seasons, but the North Texans recovered from their early setbacks to again lead the field. Varsity Trackmen Overwhelm Freshmen in Season Opener Running under almost perfect weather conditions, the North Texas varsity thinly-clads downed the freshmen in the an- nual intra-squad meet by a count of 75 to 2, . The varsity win was featured by a blazing 9.7 seconds century dash turned in by Welby Williams and Olvis Hicks. The two varsity runners broke the tape within inches of each other, with Welby get- ting the first-place nod. The other thrill producer of the day came when Doyle Chrisman out-kicked Howard in the half- mile run in 1:59.7. The lone freshman first came when Fuller won the shot-put.

A. m Women ' s Athletics Climaxing feminine athletic activi- ties on the campus, the Women ' s Rec- reational Association held their annual formal banquet May 21, at which time awards for the skills were announced. Mary Peacock, organizations president, presided and introduced the following new officers for the next school year: Ruth Russell, president; Jeanne Carter, vice-president; Mary Margaret Gib- bons, secretary; Evelyn Dunn and Bet- ty Gale, publicists; Ella Jane Taylor and Dorothy Hall, historians; and Lyd- ia Tirk and Mary Ellen Shorter, repre- sentatives-at-large. The W. R. A., composed of clubs and intramurals, was founded in 1924 by Miss Reulah Harriss of the physical education department. An executive council, composed of the presidents of the clubs and sports managers of the in- tramurals, handles the administrative section of the organization. A general meeting every month co-ordinates the various groups. Affiliations with the Women ' s Divis- ion of the National Athletic Federa- tion, and the Texas Recreational Feder- ation of College Women, are held by the local group. The central office of the TRFCW is located on this campus. Mary Frances Brunson is the central of- fice secretary, and Miss Edith Kubeck is the general supervisor. Listeil among the many activities which are branches of the W. R. A. are baseball, field hockey, volleyball, ten- nis, badminton, archery, fencing, tum- bling, and a new activity, bridge, which lias just been added to the club curric- ulum tJiis vcar. :.A,;(7irl Athletic Need: Sports managers of each activity, respectively, are Tommie Brooks, Helen Denman, June Davison, Gynne Watson, Lucille Hart, Eloise Savell, Jackye Bruner, S a m ni y e Whiteside, Mary McReynolds, and Dorothy Myers. Special awards in each field are made every year and are announced at the W. R. A. culmination banquet. Branching from their local clubs, the held hockey team is a member of the National Field Hockey Association, and the Archery Club en- tered teams in the annual telegraphic archery meet held in May. W. R. A. delegates to the TRFCW conven- tion, which was held in Austin this year, were Mary Peacock antl Jackye Bruner. They were accompanied by Helen Denman, Peggy Tobin, Margaret Melton, May Dee Foster, June Davi- son, Sammye Whiteside, Mary Frances Hill, and Miss Edith Kubeck, sponsor of the local club. Prominent on the College social calendar this year, the W. R. A. scheduled and held several activities for all girls of the College. A Christmas ciance and a banquet were the formal entertainments presented, while a kid party and frequent visits to the College cabin at Lake Dallas were some of the informal ac- tivities which the club took part in. A " stunt night " which the various women ' s organizations on the campus entered was held in February. First place in this contest went to Kappa Theta Pi. W. R. A. officers for the 1940-1941 year were Mary Peacock, president; Catharine Greever, vice-president; Mary Faye Reagan, secretary; Elna Ruth Womack and Ruth Russell, pub- licists; Virginia Holiman, historian; and Sam- mye Whiteside and May Dee Foster, represent- atives-at-large. Women ' s Athletics ncjanbatLari If ). ■w The Organization section has also been revamped. Instead of a straight division with all of the campus organ- izations included in one large group, you will find four distinct subdivisions — sororities, fraternities, honoraries, and campus clubs. Such reorganizing, it is believed, will enable the student and those who are unacquainted with the college to distinguish more easily the difference in the various organizations. Insofar as possible, the copy for these clubs has been written more than ever from the historical standpoint. This year we have endeavored to record an accurate story of just what has really happened in these different groups, their members, pledges, and social functions. i li SananLtLe ... ' 4 The Kaghlirs completed their activities for the year with the annual Kaghlir formal dinner-dance on April 26. A Japa- nese motif was used for the occasion, with the dinner being served at Marquis Hall and dancing at the Woman ' s Club. During the first semester, the Kaghlirs started their list of functions with a taffy pull honoring fall semester rushees at the Kaghlir house. A formal presentation of the fall pledges was held at the Woman ' s Club on October 23. Decorations were in keeping with the Hallowe ' en motif. An informal dance at the Mary Arden Lodge in November completed the social activities of the first semester.

This includes groups which have not already been classed as Sorority, Fraternity, or Honorary; and represents by far the largest section in this division. As much as the space would permit, we have attempted to record on these organization pages a running account of the social functions and meeting activities of each group. The pictures used have been made as informal as the size of the organization would permit. Individual cuts running on each page are pictures of the president or out- standing member of the club. A few of the groups were so large that it was impossible to print a complete cutline under every picture. 4-1 3n iWeinoriaiu A. H.
