BIZZELL, President of the University PRESIDENT Dr. William Bennett Bizzell during the past year has completed a quarter century of service as a college exec- utive, the last ten years having been at the University of Oklahoma. Prior to his coming to Oklahoma, Dr. Bizzell had been President of the College of Industrial Arts at Denton, Texas, from 1 9 1 to 1914 and President of the Texas Agricultural and Mechanical College from 1914 to 1925. hie has striven to place this institution as one among the best and to establish it as the cultural center of the Southwest and his efforts along these lines have met with no little success. A rapid and continuous growth has been experienced by the University since the advent of Dr. Bizzell as its executive head. Among the achievements which mark him as an effi- cient administrator and a great educator are the erection of a number of new buildings including the Library and Buchanan Hall, the development of the Petroleum Engi- neering and Graduate Schools, the creation of research funds for fellowships, the reorganization of the Faculty, and the progress made toward the creation of a model university campus. Through his untiring efforts the Uni- versity has been able to maintain its usual high standards throughout the tim.e of financial stress despite the fact that appropriations have been drastically reduced. Indicative of his interest in the student body is the hlonor Class, a selected group of Junior men with whom the President meets once a week during the second semester of each year for the purpose of discussing cul- tural subjects. Dr. Bizzell has written several books, the latest being " The Relations of Learning, " which was published by the University Press at Norman and was released during the past year. THE PRESIDENT ' S GREETING The things of the spirit become realities during college life. Acquaintanceship ripens into friend- ship. hHuman association in its varied forms tests out one ' s aptitudes for the finer things of life. I cherish the privilege of holding membership in a community v here life is lived on a high level and where the spirit of youth predominates. To the students of 1934-35 I extend my hearty greetings and acknowledge my sincere appreci- ation for many expressions of kindness and co-operation. May future years brin g to each of you the full realization of your aspirations and may the rewards of the efforts expended in acquiring a college education be abundant and satisfying. Faithfully yoL ' " ' ' % li- -rY Page 9 Left to right: Bowman, BIzzell, Kraettii, Kerr, Looney, Noble. Ledbetter, Hatchett. Rosser. BOARD OF REGENTS The Board of Regents is the governing body of the University of Oklahoma. This board, which was organized in 1919, is connposed of seven nnembers who are appointed by the Governor with the approval of the Senate and who serve definite terms of from one to seven years. At least three of the members must be alumni of the University. The President of the University is responsible to the Board and meets with them periodically to discuss University affairs and policies. The Board chooses the President, and appointments of other administrative officials and of members of the faculty must have Its approval. All acts of the University administration are subject to the review of the Board, which may countermand them if it sees fit. The Regents are responsible only to the Legislature and may be removed only through impeachment or by legislative act changing the law by which the Board was cre- ated. OFFICERS MR. GEORGE L.

THE ADMINISTRATIVE COUNCIL The President of the University, the Deans of the various schools and colleges, the Dean of Men and the Dean of Wonnen, the Registrar, and the Assistant to the President make up the Ad- ministrative Council. The Council was formerly known as the Senate, but it assumed its present name in 1913. Besides serving the President in an advisory capacity, the Council performs administrative, legislative and executive acts in regard to the University generally. At times it serves in a ju- diciary capacity on student problems such as eligibility, discipline and admission. The student body through the Men ' s Council or the Women ' s Self Government Association or a combined action of both may petition the Council for the redress of any grievances. The primary function of this group, however, is the co-ordination of general University policies, rules and regulations. MEMBERS DR. W. B. BIZZELL, President J. H.

The Women ' s Self Government Association Is the stu- dent governing body for all women students in the Uni- versity. With the Men ' s Council, it makes up the Stu- dents Association. Although joined for matters relating to both men and women students, the two groups are entirely independent of each other in matters relating only to their own constituencies. The membership of the group includes the Executive Board made up of the four officers, who are selected in an open election, Representatives from a number of girls ' organizations, five Members-at-Large selected by the Ex- ecutive Board and the Representatives, and a Judicial Board selected by the Executive Board, the Representa- tives and the Members-at-Large. The members of the W. S. G. A. annually become acquainted with more than four hundred new girls on the campus through teas, informal parties, and co-ed balls given during the year. They reach all Freshmen and upperclassmen who are on our campus for the first time. Each semester the Association gives a scholarship ban- quet for non-sorority women, at which time two loving cups are awarded, one to the organized house with the highest average, and one to the dormitory with the highest average.

Mr. FIndlay attended Tobin College, preparatory school, at Fort Dodge, Iowa. He received his B. A. degree fronn Grlnnell College in 1922 and In 1923 received his Master ' s Degree from the University of Chicago. Later he at- tended New York University, hie Is a nriember of Alpha Tau Onnega, Phi Beta Kappa, Sigma Delta Chi, and Delta Theta Chi. Before coming to the University of Oklahoma, he served as Dean of Men at Grlnnell College. DEAN JAMES F. FINDLAY THE OFFICE OF THE DEAN OF MEN Professor M. L. Wardell occupied the first po- sition as Dean of Men at the University of Okla- homa. The office was first created in 1928 and since then has assumed importance and responsi- bility and has certainly proved its worth as a de- partment of contact, guidance, and help to the men of the University. This office is responsible for the housing of men students, is the point of clearance for Uni- versity social affairs, and offers its services to parents, faculty, and students In the Interpreta- tion of regulations as they affect men on the campus. The latest duty to be assumed by this office Is the supervision of fraternity rush. The Dean of Men has charge of the filing and keep- ing of all date cards and supervises the assem- blies of men going through rush and Is the inter- mediary In all problems arising between frater- nities and rushees. The assumption of the many new functions and activities of the office of the Dean of Men is typical of the increasing importance and popu- larity of this now indispensable department of the University. In its present capacity this department has done much to stabilize work In scholarship and social activities of all students and Is surely a credit to the University. During past years this organization has devolved the development of a personnel record for all Freshmen Including a summary of the scholastic achievement of each Individual, his outside activities, a fairly large sampling of personal ratings on him, and certain personal and vocational Information. During the past year Dean FIndlay has fostered an Independent Men ' s Association for non-fra- ternity men. Dean FIndlay realizes the necessity of such an organization for men of high character who are not affiliated with any Greek-letter or- der. This is only one of the many beneficial organizations he has been able to create for men students on the campus. Pdq 14 The office of Dean of Women is filled by Miss Edna E. McDaniel. Miss McDaniel holds the B. A. and M.A. degrees, having received the B. A. in 1923 from Baylor College, Belton, Texas, and the M. A. in 1924 from the University of Texas at Austin. She was Freshman Dean of Women at the University of Texas for four years; Dean of Women at Baylor University at Waco for two years; and she has been Dean of Women at the University of Oklahoma for the past nine years. DEAN EDNA E. McDANIEL THE OFFICE OF THE DEAN OF WOMEN No one person is more responsible for main- taining good will toward the University through- out the State than Miss Edna E. McDaniel, Dean of Women. She takes a vital interest in the con- structive program of the A. A. U. W. and in speaking before high school girls in preparing them for entrance into the University. It has been from her that many girls have found inspi- ration for accompli-slrments and through her many have received invaluable assistance In find- ing a plan for their chosen vocation. The office of the Dean of Women is the center of all activities for women. Miss McDaniel ' s pol- icy as the Dean has been that of prevention rather than of cure — the individual ' s needs are given assistance before they assume the propor- tions of problems. hHer offices take on the aspect of an adjustment bureau. Quite in keeping with her progressive policies, a permanent personnel record of every freshman girl has been kept In her office each year since 1931, and this system has functioned with much success. Through this system, the Dean is able to contact personally and individually every fresh- man woman and to discover the particular prob- lems of each one in order that she may lend help in the solving of these problems. Through this office the working students are assisted in mak- ing adjustments to school activities and employ- ment. The office of the Dean of Women has been largely responsible for raising the scholastic standards among women students. Every house mother and the president of every house is peri- odically informed as to the grades of each girl In her house, and also as to the scholastic ranking of the respective houses as a group. In addition to her office obligations and to her duties as a member of the Administrative Coun- cil, Miss McDaniel finds time to be a friend to every student, evidenced by the fact that In each day ' s program she greets student friends who come to her for a word of cheer. She has earned, for this reason, and rightfully deserves, the title of " personality lady. " Her sympathy and under- standing have helped many girls to work out their serious problems. (This arUcle was respectfully submitted by a member of the W. S. G. A. in appreciation for the helpful guidance given so freely by Miss McDaniel.) DR. ROY GITTINGER THE DEAN OF ADMINISTRATION Supervision of admission and of graduation are the principal functions of the office of the Dean of Adnninistration. No applicant may be admit- ted to the University until he has submitted cre- dentials showing his previous training to this of- fice and has had them approved. Credentials upon which an applicant secures admission to the University must be mailed from the registrar of the institution last attended to the registrar of the University. Decisions as to the acceptance of students with doubtful credentials must be made by the Dean of Administration. Permission for temporary enrollment while waiting for creden- tials may be granted only by this official. Requirements for graduation, like the require- ments for admission, are checked in this office. Deficiencies are noted and appeals heard by the Dean. Dr. Roy Gittinger has filled this office since 1926. Gittinger is a graduate of the University, having received a B. A. degree in 1902. hie also holds an M. A. from the University of Chicago and a Ph. D. from the University of California. He has been a member of the University faculty since 1902. From 1915 until 1925 he served as Dean of Undergraduates; from 1919 until 1925 he was registrar; and during the year 1925-26 he was acting dean of the Graduate School. In addition to his duties as Dean of Admlnis tration. Dr. Gittinger also serves as Professor of English History, teaching one class in that subject each semester. SECRETARY The office of Secretary of the University of Oklahoma is filled by Mr. Emil R. Kraettli. This office is sometimes referred to as Assistant to the President. The duties of the office include the general executive management of the University. Many problems, both student and faculty, which might otherwise have to go to the President or the Administrative Council, are settled by this official. He might be termed the " business manager " of the University. As Secretary of the University, Mr. Kraettli Is ex officio Secretary of the Administrative Coun- cil and of the Board of Regents. He is also Secre- tary of the Student Loan Committee and a mem- ber of the Student Activities Committee of the University. Such questions as deferred enroll- ment fees, applications for loans, wages for stu- dent labor, and special student activities are re- ferred to him. Mr. Kraettli was graduated from high school at Clay Center, Kansas, In 1909 and attended the Gem City Business College at Quincy, Illi- nois, in 1910 and 1912. Before coming to the University, he was an accountant In the hard- ware and Implement business at Clifton, Kansas, and at Hobart, Oklahoma. bMIL R.

REAVES To the Students in the College of Arts and Sciences: Education Is sought for two purposes which are quite distinct — one is to gain a living and the olher is to pre- pare one ' s self to live. The first of these purposes is the chief objective of professional schools: the second is the prinnary function of the College of Arts and Sciences. However, the purpose first nnentioned is not entirely neg- lected by this college for within it are several schools which are professional in objective — the Schools of Jour- nalism, Geology, Home Economics, Social Service, Citi- zenship and Public Affairs, and Physical Education. In addition to earning a living one should be able to live a full, wholesome, heJpful life. In preparation for this he should learn to speak and write his native language with accuracy and facility and acquire a knowledge and THE COLLEGE OF appreciation of its literature. He should broaden his sympathies with the people of other countries by learn- ing at least to read one or more foreign languages. He should acquaint himself with the historical development of his own country and its civilization and with the most important contributions thereto made by the peoples of other lands and times. In this age of science one cannot expect to understand the spirit of the times unless he makes a close study of the elements of one or more of the fundamental sciences. The economic, social, and political world is now in such a state of flux that one cannot intelligently follow the pro- cession, much less serve as a safe leader, unless he has given careful study to some of the social sciences. Without mentioning other lines of study offered by this college which are equally valuable for the art of living, I may say that the aim and purpose of a general educa- tion such as this college attempts to provide is to enable the student to understand something of the world in which he lives, to develop his powers of observation, to stimulate his intellectual growth, to hold before him the most worthy ideals, and to give him a sense of his obli- gations to society. It is my hope and wish that every student who com- pletes the requirements for his Bachelor ' s degree in this college will have reason to be proud of his degree and will have made substantial preparation for understanding, enjoying, and taking part in the world — that is, for living.

Page 22 ARTS AND SCIENCES The College of Arts and Sciences was established in 1892 and the first degrees were granted In 1898. It is the center of the University of Oklahonna out of which the Graduate School and the professional schools have grown and around which they are grouped. A part of its in- struction is foundational for the work of the professional schools. The College of Arts and Sciences affords the student an opportunity to test himself in several lines of endeavor before he decides upon his special field of activity. As soon as feasible, usually at the beginning of the second year, the student decides whether he will select a major subject in the College of Arts and Sciences, or enter one of the schools of the college, namely, Citizenship and Public Affairs, Geology, Home Economics, Journalism, Li- brary Science, Physical Education, or Social Service, or devote his second year In college to further preparation for admission to one of the other schools of the Univer- sity, such as Law or Medicine. The work of the freshman year of the College of Arts and Sciences is planned to follow graduation from a four- year high school or from a three-year senior high school. Two units of senior high school English and a unit of plane geometry are specifically required for admission to the College of Arts and Sciences. The faculty of the College of Arts and Sciences Is com- posed of the president, the dean, and those professors, associate professors, assistant professors, instructors, and assis+an+s who teach courses regularly accredited in this college rffom the following departments: accounting, anthropology, astronomy, economics, English, finance, geology and geography, government, Greek, history. ASST DEAN E. D. MEACHAM home economics, journalism, library science, Latin, mathe- matics, military science, modern languages, philosophy, physical education, physics, physiology, psychology, pub- lic speaking, sociology and zoology. Work in the College leads to either the degree of Bachelor of Arts or that Bachelor of Sciences. The high- est requirements for graduation have always been main- tained and the degrees granted by the College are rec- ognized in all other institutions. Applicants over twenty-one years of age who are not high-school graduates but who have had some high-school work, with business or other training since leaving high school, may be admitted as unclassified students.

The fraternity has been active in pro- moting the better standards of students entering the field of medicine and each year outstanding students are pledged on a basis of scholarship and character. Throughout the year, prominent doctors of the state speak at the regular meetings of the society and the society sponsors an annual trip through the State Hospital at Oklahoma City. Each year a banquet is held at the Blltmore hlotel in Oklahoma City for the pledges and ini- tiation is conducted at the Medical School for the initiates.

CASEY Created January 28, 1915. the Publication Board of the University of Oklahoma was formed In order to super- vise the official publications of the University. At the time of its creation and until 1926. the Board was com- posed of only five members and had very limited powers. At that time, however, the membership was increased to nine and wider powers conferred upon it, including selec- tion of the Editors and Business Managers, who had for- merly been elected by the student body as a whole. The Board is composed of one representative each from the SOONER, the Whirlwind, the Oklahoma Dally. PUBLICATION BOARD ruDiicaTions-ar-Large, rne Men s Council ana W. S. G. A., and three faculty members, representing the school authorities. The duties of the Board are to select the Editors of the different publications from the applicants who are eligible for the posts. The Board sets the eligibility requirements of the applicants and these include service in a major staff position on one of the publications for a period of seven months prior to the filing of an application. The Business Managers of the SOONER and the Whirlwind are selected by the General Manager of Student Publi- cations, subject to the approval of the Board of Publica- tions, while the business affairs of the Oklahoma Daily are handled by the General Manager under whose super- vision are advertising managers. While the Board of Publications prefers to leave the actual management of the various student publications up to the Editors and Business Managers and their staffs, it operates in a supervisory capacity and all budgets and expenditures of money are worked out in consultation between the Board and the Editors, the Business Man- agers and the General Manager of Student Publications. The Journalism Press Inc. was created by the Publica- tion Board and the mechanical department turned over to the corporation for operation, although control over that group is maintained by use of interlocking directorates for both groups.

C.iIvmI, Paq« S6 JOURNALISM PRESS The Journalism Press, Incorporated, was formed on June I, 1930, by an acf of the Board of Publications. The corporation was created for the purpose of oper- ating the mechanical department of the publications. Printing of the Oklahoma Daily, the Whirlwind, and the Student Directory is the principal work of the organiza- tion. The members are seven in number and include repre- sentatives from the Publication Board, the Men ' s Council, and W. S. G. A., and four faculty members. The directo- rate of the Corporation Is interlocking with that of the Publication Board so that the latter has complete control over It. Students are employed by the group and are used In the University print shop, engaged In the printing of the publications mentioned above. The General Manager of Student Publications, Mr. Cecil hi. Brite, supervises most of the administrative work of the board and the efficiency and co-ordination of the publications Is largely due to his industry and enterprise in this endeavor. Mr. Charles Tant Is charged with super- vising the operation of the mechanical department and a steady Improvement has resulted from his labors. Professor John H. Casey assumes the duties of secre- CECIL BRITE CHARLES TANT tary of both this body and the Publication Board and must be given credit for the large share of work which he naturally must undertake. By its creation the Journalism Press has taken a large amount of responsibility from the shoulders of the Publi- cation Board and has unified and synchronized the me- chanical operations connected with the publication of student enterprises.

Page 5 " ' THE 1935 SOONER The 1935 SOONER is the thirty-first official yearbook of the University of Oklahoma published by the student association of the University. However, only twenty- seven of these publications have been called the SOONER since the first four volumes were called the " Mistletoe. " Beginning with the 1909 issue and continu- ing every year, the SOONER has annually appeared, por- traying the campus scene as it appears. The annual publication of the book provides a lasting record of the activities, organizations, classes and other phases of the college year, creating in the student ' s mem- ory a recollection of his alma mater which will remain long after he has left its halls and taken his place in the business or professional world. Across the SOONER ' S pages march in retrospect men and women of the Uni- versity of Oklahoma, with a background of events, major and minor, that have been their interest and concern during the school year past. The publication and management of the SOONER is under the supervision of the Editor and Business Manager, who select their staff members on a basis of work done on previous publications. After work in a minor staff position a staff member is usually given an opportunity to qualify for a major staff appointment which in turn makes for eligibility as Editor or Business Manager. The Editor Is elected each spring by the Publication Board from the candidates eligible for the office. The Business Manager is nominated by the General Manager of Publications and is approved by the Publications Board. The tenure of office is from the spring election until the release of the publication sometime during the spring semester. Requirements for Editor and Business Manager include seven months service in a major staff position and recommendation of the present Editor and Business Manager. The publication of the book is financed through the sale of books, advertising and sale of space to organiza- tions appearing on its pages. Judged by contrast with more recent predecessors, the SOONER departs from time honored customs and in- augurates several new physical changes in the book. The principal one of these is the change from the division of the book by classes to division by schools. Thus each school or college In the University has a separate and distinct section of the 1935 SOONER. Incorporated in this change Is a new innovation in features. The several divisions have their own pages of features devoted en- tirely to the division where they are located, in addition to the general feature section of past years. No effort has been spared by the members of the staff of the 1935 SOONER to make It truly representative and we sincerely hope that this book merits and receives your approval.

Page 59 THE OKLAHOMA DAILY The Oklahoma Daily is the official newspaper oi ine University of Olclabonna, and is published by students of the School of Journalism, under the supervision of the Board of Publications. The slogan, " More than a student newspaper, " is lived up to in every respect as the cover- age of the paper includes Associated Press dispatches, as well as events of local interest outside the pale of campus activities. In addition, the paper is justly proud of its news scoops on affairs of importance on the campus. Advertising this coverage in the Daily it was announced that the paper had beaten leading metropolitan journals in publication of stories on the university ' s building pro- gram, the stand of the Board of Regents on the proposed " deferred pledging " of fraternities and sororities, and similar news events. The paper is published daily, except Mondays and holi- days, throughout the school year. During the summer months, publication is continued in tabloid fern. The Oklahoma Daily is essentially a laboratory for students of the School of Journalism. The staff of the paper is com- posed of students of the Journalism school, and through this medium they are given the opportunity of working on a real newspaper. The Editor is selected by the Publication Board to serve for the school year and is responsible to the Board for the editorial policies of the paper during his period of supervision. The business staff of the paper is under the supervision of the General Manager of Publications, who selects the advertising managers. All staff members ore selected by the Editor and the General Manager and serve under their immediate supervision. Editorials of the Oklahoma Daily are written by stu- dents of the School of Journalism as a part of their as- signments in courses of the school in editorial writing. They are not necessarily the policies of the paper and contributions from students and faculty members are en- couraged. During the past year the Daily sponsored a poll taken by the American Association of College Editors of col- lege students on military questions of the nation. The Oklahoma Daily takes the lead in matters of this kind and as a result is recognized as one of the leading newspapers In the college field. Student and alumni subscriptions and advertising of national as well as local concerns, are the sources of rev- enue on which the paper is published. When profits ac- crue, they are used in maintaining the mechanical depart- ment and keeping It up to date, although the Daily cannot be called a money making enterprise. A college newspaper is a necessary part of the student body and the Oklahoma Daily fulfills the needs of this university more than successfully. uii li. ...ji.t. ii.o ii, :.oJoi.j. cu.i., K i, l: J . l, tvU Jc.

Page 61 THE WHIRLWIND The Whirlwind is the official humor magazine of the University of Oklahoma and is published monthly during the school year. Historically, the first issue of the magazine was in May, 1921. when it was published privately. The next year It was adopted by the Publication Board and became a pa T of the student publications. During the second semester of the 1925 school year, the magazine was suspended by the school authorities because of censorable material contained In the January Issue. Publication, however, was resumed the next fal! and has been continuous from that date. As are all student publications, the Whirlwind is under the generel supervision of the Publication Board. The Editor is selected from the eligible candidates by the Board and the Business Manager is selected by the Gen- eral Manager of Student Publications, subject to the ap- proval of the Board. Requirements for Editor and Busi- ness Manager of the magazine are similar to those of other publications. Candidates must have served for a period of at least seven months in a major staff position and must have the recommendation of the present Editor and Business Manager. The editorial and business staffs are chosen solely by the Editor and Business Manager from members of pre- vious staffs and applicants for positions on a basis of past work and future promise. A contribution box is maintained In the Union Building where students are urged to drop articles and features which they deem worthy of publication. During the past year the Whirlwind has sponsored several new features which have proved popular with the student body. The principal one was the inauguration of an annual award of a trip to Washington, D. C, based on popularity of tha participants. This contest, sponsored by the magazine, was held in conjunction with Norman merchants and was won this year by Miss Margaret Buckley, a Fine Arts senior from Tulsa. Another feature of the Whirlwind has been the use of articles written by alumni of the Univer- sity. Benton Ferguson, ' 31, Tulsa, was the first alumni to have an article used in this year ' s magazine. His article appeared in the October Issue of the Whirlwind and was called, " Collegiate Vice and the New Deal. " The Whirlwind Is, and has been for some time, a con- tributor to College Humor, along with similar humor magazines, and in turn uses material appearing in College Humor. Reprints from other magazines, such as the Mis- souri Frivol; the Carnegie Tech Puppet; the Alabama Rammer-jammer and others are included in the pages of the Whirlwind. Nearly all colleges sponsor a humor magazine and the Whirlwind compares favorably with the exchanges from other schools which are received here. The magazine I ' financed through the sale of subscriptions and the sale ot advertising by the business staff. ,..,!, ,.,-, ..-ii ,,, ,...,. " Gray. Grimev. l....i,;. . u,.;.

Page 63 ALUMNI ASSOCIATION The University of OUaKoma had five graduates when the Alumni association wat organized June 9, 1899 and four of them were members and all held offices. They were Lawrence Wooster Cole. ■99. president; Carleton Ross Hume, ' 98, secretary; Roscoe Shively Helvie. ' 99. treasurer: and Jesse L. Hefly. ' 99 treasurer. That was the beginning of the Alumni association which is offi- cially known as the University of Oliahoma association. Today, thirty-six years later, there are fourteen thousand Uni- versity of OUahoma graduates scattered throughout every country in the world and some thirty-five thousand former students who attended the University but did not complate work toward degrees. The preamble to the 1899 constitution still summarizes the pur- poses of the association: " We the Alumni of the University of Oklahoma, desiring to promote, through union, the interests of . our Alma Mater, to create and perpetuate good fellowship among ourselves, and to renew our past pleasant relations do hereby ordain and establish the following constitution. " The history of the Alumni association falls Into three distinct periods. From 1899 to 1919, the association met at commence- ment time and planned a program for the year. There was no Individual giving full-time to the association ' s welfare and that which was accomplished resulted from spare-time work of the Individual members. However, a second period began in 1919 when Fred E. Tarman presented a committee report authorizing a plan for the employ- ment of a paid secretary of the association. Richard H. Cloyd became the secretary of the association, devoting half of his time to the University employment agency. The third period began In the fall of 1928 when Frank S. Cleckler accepted the position as full-time secretary and The Sooner Maga- zine, alumni monthly, was organized with Joseph A. Brandt as editor. During this third period, the work of the alumni association has Increased enormously. As well as the magazine, a quarterly bulletin Is published and sent to all fourteen thousand of the University ' s graduates. A teachers ' placement bureau is maintained in the association offices in the Oklahoma Union. A complete file of active and Inactive alumni Is kept up to date. The secretary plans Homecoming, Commencement and Reunion celebrations and is in charge of other meetings that are held to promote the Interests of the University. More than two hundred thousand pieces of mail pass through the office each year. An executive board is elected annually by active members of the association to meet at Homecoming and Commencement re- unions and plan the year ' s work. Each year, one third of the board Is replaced by new members to hold office for three years. The membership of the board during the past school year In- cluded: Lewis Morris. 15. 17.

Carr, of the class of 1922, now a faculty member at the University of Hawaii, Is Interested In what Is happening on the campus at the University of Oklahoma. He Is Interested in how Ralph Records, assistant professor of history at O. U.. is faring, and how Mrs. Lillian Neelly Bellah. of Los Angeles. Cali- fornia. Is doing. They 6re both members of his class. All three of them like to keep up with Joseph Benton ' s meteoric rise in American opera. Joe Benton graduated three years before they did, but undoubtedly they remember him from campus asso- ciation. What chance does Denzel Carr, thousands of miles away in HatAall, have of knowing what success Joe Benton, or Ralph Records or Mrs. Bellah Is enjoying? Certainly Hawaiian newspapers won ' t bring him much news about his former friends at the University of Oklahoma. Also, he ' t In- terested in what Is happening on the campus today. In a like manner, Mrs. Bellah and Ralph Records are happy to hear of Carr ' s progress. But the great distance that separates them often prevents news from reoching Hawaii, California, Norman or even South America or Now York City. The Sooner Magazine, published monthly by the Alumni asso- ciation, performs the unique function of telling Denzel Carr what success has come to Ralph Records and what advancement has come to the University of Oklahoma campus. It also Informs O. U. graduates In Canada or Pauls Valley of Denzel Carr ' i accom- plishments In his Pacific ocean Island home. News of all of Oklahoma ' s thirty-alght graduating clat s !( poured Into The Sooner Magazine each month. News from the campus Is sent out to those whose homes are far away. News of those far away is brought In to those who live within the shadows of Soonerland. Official announcements of the Alumni association and of the University are made In the monthly publication. Pictures from the ends of the earth arc brought together In the magazine for the enlightenment and enjoyment of the fourteen thousand gradu- ates and thirty-five thousand former students of the University of Oklahoma. Graduates of the I93S class will receive copies of The Sooner Magazine during the next year. They are Invited, even urged, to send In news items that will be of Interest to clattmatei and faculty members. Many alumni have become Life Members of the asso- ciation and will receive the magazine for the rest of thxir llvm end will be active in the attocialton as long at (hey liv Page 64 The School of IMuiiniacy DEAN D. B. R. JOHNSON The School of Pharmacy at the University follows the four-year plan of instruction, taken from the Syllabus for schools of pharmacy. The four-year course provides well grounded information In the basic sciences such as chem- istry, physics, botany, physiology, bacteriology, and the cultural subjects such as English, a foreign language or other kindred subjects which the student may desire as elective courses. These courses provide the structure on which the work in the School of Pharmacy is based. The next step in the curriculum of the school is the study and manufacture of the different salts, analytical assay of drugs, a comparative value of the solvents, and the study of crude drugs, together with the proper way to increase efficiency in handling them. THE SCHOOL To further the study under this system, the schooi has obtained, by its department of Pharmacognosy, the va- rious animal drugs, including those used in endocrine dis- eases, and presents perfect models to the classes for study. Two concurrent aims are pursued by the department of Ph armacognosy. The cultural and technical knowledge of the simple drugs derived from contemporary plants and animals is presented. Throughout the courses required of the undergraduate, detailed study of drug plants and the drugs derived from them. During the senior year, the study of animal drugs and the drug animals. This senior course has taken on an increasing importance in the study of pharmacy, with the rapid advance of research for new drugs of animal origin. Many other courses are offered for those who are particularly interested in some phase of pharmaceutical work. The course in Commercial Pharmacy attempts to pro- vide the students in the school with practical experience in their chosen field: the student who prepares for his major life work without gaining a knowledge of its prac- tical side is at a serious disadvantage. At the conclusion of the requirements for the degree of Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy, the graduate is pre- pared for a life of usefulness in many of the allied fields of pharmaceutical endeavor. Drug stores, prescription shops, hospital pharmacy, manufacturing plants or labora- tories, all offer a widely varied selection to the graduate. One ot ths laboratories in ptiarmacautical study. It is in this, and similar laboratories that the pharmacy student receives his knowledge of the drug plants and the methods of using them. The library ot the school ol pharmacy is complete in every detail with the specialized books relating to the study of Phar- macy. The generel library, supplements the work of this library with books of general science. Peqe 66 OF PHARMACY The School of Pharmacy was organized in 1893 as an integral part of the University of Oklahoma. The School is a member of the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy which association is composed of only those colleges and schools giving training of a very high qual- ity. The School also co-operates with the Oklahoma State Board of Pharmacy, the Oklahoma State Pharmaceutical Association, the American Pharmaceutical Association, and the National Association of Retail Druggists in main- taining high standards for those who practice pharmacy. Pharmacy is defined, very briefly, as the science of preparing and dispensing medicine. The pharmacist has a position of sacred trust in his community. A slight error might mean the death of an innocent sufferer. In order that the health of this state, and of the nation, may be properly safeguarded many laws have been passed that affect the profession of pharmacy. The passage of the Pure Food and Drug Act by Congress on June 30, 1906, has a most important influence. The operation of these laws, both state and federal, has created a demand for carefully trained pharmacists, analysts, and drug inspectors. There are over one thousand registered drug stores in the state of Oklahoma. Each store must have a pharma- cist, registered in this state, in charge at all times. The recent passage of the Parker Bill permits pharmacists to be commissioned in the Public h ealth Service. The prop- erly trained pharmacist has excellent opportunities in the civil service. Many of the manufacturing houses and large dealers employ pharmacists to test the quality, and assist in preparing, the products they make, buy or sell. The salaries paid at present are fair, and the oppor- tunities for going into business for one ' s self are better than in any other profession. The practice of pharmacy in the drug store gives a happy combination of a profes- sion and a business. The University School of Pharmacy confers the degree of Bachelor of Science In Pharmacy upon a student who completes the plan of study, outlined to cover four years, with a total of not less than 132 hours credit, hie must also be recommended by the faculty. Graduate courses are offered, leading to the degree Master of Science for those who plan to make the study of pharmacy their major work. A few of the courses may be selected by graduates with majors in other fields, but who wish to minor In pharmacognosy. The aim of the work in commercial pharmacy is to trair the student in the merchandising of the drug store so that he will be better qualified to make a financial success. The courses in this branch of pharmacy not only train students for work In the modern drug store but offer opportunities for preparation for work as traveling sales- men for pharmaceutical houses or wholesale drug com- panies, as advertising managers of chain or large Inde- pendent stores, or as managers of such stores. The " Model Drug Store " In which students ot commercial pharmacy receive their laboratory experience. The " Store " is stocked with a complete line of drug-store merchandise. It is on the third floor of the Pharmacy Building. A Pharmacognosy laboratory. It is in this course that a knowl- edge of the simple drugs derived from contemporary plants and animals is presented, it has taken on increasing importance In the pharmacy curriculum.

Walter White, senior pharmacist, takes time out to growl at the camera. The Dean lays down the law to a group of his students — I guess that ought to teach them. J. Pat Henry (of the Ringling Henrys) counts out fifly grains of aspirin for a first class headache. Phar- macists also have field trips as this picture will testify. We hope the dog isn ' t de- ceived by the enticing looks which he receives on the steps of the Pharmacy Building. Clyde Miller, Pat Henry, and Paul McCluskey show what the well-dressed pharmacist will wear in iho springtime. E. G. Bullard dishes it out from the dis- pensary. P«q» 74 Dr. Ralph Bienfang, popular professor in the School of Pharmacy, greets us from his desk. From the grin on Ed Knollhoff ' s face we take it that he has just passed the final in a tough course. This group of embryo phar- macists is all ears for what Dean Johnson has to lell them. Elwood Wright and Katherine Searle are caught as they do a little extra work in the lab — or were they just posing for a picture? Ed Payne is really hard at work. Another group on a field trip. This ought to teach Pat to be kind to dumb ani- mals. The officers of the O. U. Ph. A. for 1934 were John Marik, Bob Richardson, Verna Faye Busby and Law- rence Melhorn. For 1935 they are Clyde Miller, How- ard Schumacher, Emmette Jones and Lawrence Melhorn (looks like tney can ' t get shut of that Melhorn fellow).

DEAN Okmulgee EDWARD MILLIGAN Oklahoma City THOMAS CASEY Tishomingo MAYBLE HUNT Oklahoma City The Oklahoma State Board of Pharmacy de- mands the highest standard of Pharmacy in the state, and sees that all Pharmacy laws of Okla- homa are rigidly enforced. The Board feels that the future for Pharmacy in Oklahoma Is very bright and young men and women of high standards are encouraged to en- roll in the School of Pharmacy and make this pro- fession their life ' s work. No one can legally practice pharmacy in Oklahoma unless he is registered by this Board. The group meets regularly, at stated periods, to examine candidates who desire to obtain license to practice in this state. The successful applicant must show evidence of graduation from a " rec- ognized " or approved school of pharmacy, as well as evidence of experience In a drug store. The Board Is a friend of the School and co- operates with it in every way possible. Pag 76 The Colleiie of Fine Arts DtArj f ' l:l-ick holmberg During the first semester, 1934-1935, three hundred and eighty-two students did their major work in the College of Fine Arts. The above Includes the School of Art, the School of Dramatic Art, and the School of Music. In addition six hundred and sixty-eight students doing major work in other divisions of the University did work in the College of Fine Arts. This makes a grand total of one thousand and fifty students directly influ- enced through study of things beautiful In the first semester under the guidance of the College of Fine Arts. Extension courses and leisure time courses are not included in the above. These perhaps will add an addi- tional one hundred students. It Is difficult, or next to Impossible, to get the exact number of persons that have been contacted and in- directly influenced by the means of lectures, concerts, THE COLLEGE players, and the like as presented on and off the campus by faculty and students during just one semester. A fair estimate perhaps would be not less than 25,000 and perhaps more than 50,000 persons. If we take all the above figures for a complete school year, from Sep- tember first to September first, we may safely add one half to them. There are thirty instructors in the College of Fine Arts. In the first semester of this school year 1050 students received instruction. This equals 35 students per teacher which is an unreasonably high number of students per teacher as compared with n Uer ;n ' ;t;tu- tlons of equal rank. The reader may ask: Why all these figures? In the writer ' s mind right now there is only one principal reason: to show the tremendous interest in fine arts as compared to a few years back. It is not believed that a larger per cent of students than hitherto are expecting to make some branch of Fine Arts their life work and profession but that a much larger per cent of students, and of the public in gen- eral, wish to learn some of the fundamentals of the vari- ous branches of fine arts in order to better enjoy the better things in life.

Page 78 OF FINE ARTS The College of Fine Arts was first organized in 1899 as the School of Music. It was reorganized in 1903 as the School of Fine Arts and again reorganized in 1924 as the College of Fine Arts. The first degrees were granted by the School of Fine Arts in 1905. The College of Fine Arts is divided into three schools, the School of Art, the School of Dramatic Art, and the School of Music. The School of Art, of which Professor O. B. Jacobson is the Director, is housed in the Art Building which pro- vides room for studios for faculty members, for class- rooms, and for exhibition rooms. The work in ceramic art has its laboratory and kiln in the Armory. The School of Art owns a collection of about 200 oil and water- color paintings, drawings, etchings, and lithographs, mostly by modern artists, and collections of pueblo pottery, of North-African arts and crafts, and of bronze medals. Throughout the year the School has on display a series of exhibitions by well-known artists. Professor Rupel J. Jones is the director of the School of Dramatic Art. The courses in this School are designed for the purpose of providing training in the speech arts and in the arts of the theatre. The School is housed in the Fine Arts Building, where, in addition to offices of the faculty members, there are two classrooms especi- ally fitted for laboratory work in the theatre arts. The workshop, where all the scenery is made and painted, is well equipped. The productions of the Playhouse and some of the studio productions are staged in the Uni- versity Auditorium. Stages in the Engineering Audi- torium and on the third floor of the Fine Arts Building RUPEL J. JONES O. B. JACOBSON are available for smaller dramatic productions. The campus, at several different points, affords facilities for outdoor theatrical performances. The School of Music, the third major division of the College of Fine Arts, is under the direction of Dean Fredrik hlolmberg. This School also is housed in the Fme Arts Building which provides room for teachers ' studios, classrooms, piano practice rooms, and the Uni- versity Auditorium which seats approximately 2000. A three-manual pipe organ is installed in this Auditorium and a two-manual organ is in Room 2 I 8 of the building. In addition to the large collection of general and tech- nical books in the field of music and the fine arts in the University Library, the School of Music has an extensive library of band, choral, and orchestral music. The Art Building, formerly the Library, in which are held classes In painting, sculpture and other phases of art. In this building are to be found a number of interesting exhibits of faculty and student work. A scene from one of the plays produced by the Playhouse unde the sponsorship of the School of Dramatic Art. The scener was made by students of the School as a part of their labora tory work.

Delta chapter was established on the University of Oklahoma campus in 1919. Since that time the fraternity has expanded until at the present time the national organization embraces more than 25 active chapters throughout the country. Scott P. Squyres, founder of the University chapter and former national president of the organization, is largely responsible for this rapid expansion. The fraternity was founded for the primary purpose of encouraging good fellowship, leadership, scholarship and musical ability among college band members, and these are the qualities which are considered in the selection of members. Among the prominent honorary members are: John Philip Sousa: Dr. E. Whitney Martin. Director Stanford University Band: Major W. O. Thompson, Director Penn State College Band: Oscar J. Lehrer, former Director University of Oklahoma Band and Orchestra: Gustav Bruder. Ohio State University Band: Bohumil Makovsky. Dean of Music and Director of Oklahoma A M College Band: Herbert Clark, Director Long Beach. California. Concert Band: and Captain Harry L. Beard. Director Oregon State College Band.

MOORMAN To Those Who Contemplate the Study of Medicine: It should be remembered that the profession of medi- cine is overcrowded: that the number of applicants for admission to medical schools is ever increasing, throwing into competition all those who meet or exceed the minimum requirements; that the resulting pressure for admission demands Increasingly high scholastic attainments; that of all professions medicine presents the most difficult, the most expensive and the longest course of study, with the minimum promise of material reward. However, it is equally Important to remember that the tenets laid down by the profession are funda- THE SCHOOL mental to society and serve as a firm foundation for the development of self-culture and from which to project a life of genuine service to humanity. The above claims are adequately established by a brief account of the doctors relationship to his fellow- man. He never assumes the role of a reformer; he is a mender; he knows too well the mechanism of human frailties to demand outright reform. He takes broken bodies and lagging spirits and gently repairs damaged parts. He seeks to bring about the best possible phy- sical and spiritual adjustments without reference to social, moral or financial position. He has an intimate and generous share in the chastening experiences of life. He attends birth; he relieves suffering; he dissi- pates fear and Inspires confidence; he contends with death and, if need-be, he witnesses the separation of soul and body; often he lingers to comfort those stricken and bewildered by this last great mystery of life ' s incom- prehensible cycle. The functions enumerated above refer primarily to the art of medicine. However, the necessity of mastering the science of medicine is clearly implied. While the healing art may have found its origin in the " primal sympathy of man for man, " its justification, its growth and development, depend largely upon the exercise of reason, upon the sleepless critical spirit of investigation and the relentless search for truth. Hippocrates said " There are In effect two things, to know and to believe one knows. To know is science; to believe one knows is ignorance. " In medicine sympathy must have the guidance of knowledge; art must be safeguarded by science. The above facts should have a careful consideration by all who approach the study of medicine. Two picturat of laboraloriai of the School of Medicino, thowinq (he embryo doctori et Ihey put into practice the (heorlei learned in the cla«»- room. One of thete groups is studying Biochemistry and the other ii studying the various types of diseases and their remedies in the pathology laboratory. Page 92 OF MEDICINE The Medical School of 1he University of Oklahoma came into being in 1900. In that year it was organized as one of the regular schools of the University, at Norman. For ten years it consisted of only the first tv o years of the regular medical course. The third and fourth years were established at Oklahoma City in 1910 by the absorption of Epworth Medical School, the Uni- versity of Oklahoma assuming all the obligations to students and others, of the Epworth school. At first the School had no faculty per se. The courses were taught by the regular departments of the Univer- sity. Bacteriology, hHistology and Embryology were taught by the Biology Department. Thirty hours of chemistry were required and were taught by the Chem- istry Department. Materia Medica, Prescription Writing, and Pharmacodynamics, forerunners of the present course in Pharmacology, were taught by the Pharmacy School. Physiology was taught by the Anatomy Department. Pathology was originally a course of lectures given by a local physician. A short time before statehood path- ology and bacteriology were organized as a sub-depart- ment of the Botany Department. These subjects were taught by E. M. Williams. At the time of statehood there was only one depart- ment that was wholly in the Medical School. That was the Department of Anatomy, which occupied one third of a wooden building now used as a physics laboratory. In 1908 histology, neuro-anafomy, and physiology were added to pathology and bacteriology, and the group designated as a separate department. L. A. Turley was elected head of the department. Dr. Turley was also acting Assistant Dean from 1909 to 1920 when he was made full Assistant Dean, which position he held until 1928. The vision and untiring efforts of Dr. Turley were largely responsible for the development and changes in the first two years, and for the final union and hous- ing of the School as a unit In Its present quarters. The classes were small In 1908, consisting of from three to nine students. There were only about five hundred students In the entire University. As the years went by three separate departments were organized from the subjects first taught by Dr. Turley. The first was the Department of Physiology which took over the pharmacology from the Pharmacy School. The first head of this department was John Dice McLaren. Next was the Department of Bacteriology and hiyglene with Gayfree Ellison as head. In 1920 hllstology and Embryology were made Into a separate department under J. M. Thurlnger. In 1925 the Department of Bio- chemistry and Pharmacology was established with M. R. Everett as head and H. A. Shoemaker from the School of Pharmacy In charge of the Pharmacological division of the Department. The State Legislature in 1927 appropriated money for the construction of the present Medical School building. The first two years were moved from Norman and united with the last two years In the new building in 1928. The first inspection of the School was made in 1909 by Abraham Flexner, now head of the Educational Com- mittee of the Rockefeller Foundation, who gave an " A " rating to the then two year school. The School as a whole received an " A " rating on the completion of the University hlospital in 1917. Dr. Roy Pllson Stoops, Professor of Anatomy, was the first to have the title of Dean of the School. At state- hood Dr. C. S. Bobo was made Dean. Dr. Robert F. Williams followed Dr. Bobo when the last two years were added to the School. He was succeeded by Dr. W. J. Jolly, who resigned after a short term. The fifth Dean was Dr. Curtis R. Day. Dr. LeRoy Long then became Dean and served for sixteen years. In 1931 he resigned and Dr. L. J. Moorman was appointed as the seventh Dean of the School. A group ot medical s+udents found In the In where ma.iy thousands ot books pertaining ■, ' ■, ,■ medicine re found. The library ot the Medical school of the finest in the entire Southwest. Another view of the students In the laboratory devoted to the study of biochemistry. Microscopes are used to a large extent in the work of this science.

CARSON Tau Beta Pi is an honorary society for engineering students founded at Lehigh University in June, 1885. Its purpose is to confer distinction upon those students who have maintained a high grade of scholarship and to foster a spirit of liberal culture in the engineering students of the institutions in which its chapters are located. At present there are more than 60 chapters of the fraternity with a total membership of approxi- mately 20,000. The local chapter was admitted into the national or- ganization in 1926 after having existed as a local, Tau Pi, for three years. Students must have maintained at least a " B " average during enrollment in the school previous to initiation to be eligible for membership. Candidates for membership must also be in the upper one-fourth of the senior class or the upper one-eighth of the junior class. Of the upper one-eighth of the junior class, only three are eligible for pledging during the first semester, the remainder being eligible the second semester. Pag 116 Front row, left to right: Ayres.

ALMQUIST OTHO SPARKS Sigma Tau is an honorary society founded at the University of Nebraska on February 24, 1904. Its purpose is to recognize scholarship and professional attainment. Junior and senior students in engineering are admitted to membership, their selection being based on scholarship, practicality and sociability. Men distin- guished in the profession may be admitted as honorary members. Each chapter recognizes scholarship among freshman engineering students by presenting the Sigma Tau medal to the freshman ranking highest in scholar- ship. A magazine, the Pyramid, is published quarterly, and contains national fraternity news and topics of interest to the members of Sigma Tau. There are 19 active chapters of the national society, located in leading Universities maintaining colleges of engineering, throughout the United States. ra ■■■ MMI MB «a M W MMI !■■■■•■ ■■•■•■«•■ First row. left to right: Marlcls, Henderson, Pollard, Marriott, Crawford, Kruger.

DODGE The purpose of the Graduate School is to offer an opportunity for advanced study and research. Worit leading to the master ' s degree is offered in thirty-eight departments and covers nearly fifty distinct fields of learning. The degree of doctor of philosophy is at present offered in six departments, with minor work in related fields. Work leading to the degree of doctor of education is also available for those preparing for teaching or school administration. The policy of the Graduate School has been to limit its offerings to those fields which are appropriate to this institution and in which a high grade of graduate work can be offered. As those who have been enrolled In the graduate GRADUATE school well know, a thorough preparation for graduate study is required and high accomplishment on the part of those upon whom degrees are conferred is demanded. If it is to fulfill its obligation to the State and to its students, the Graduate School must maintain the stand- ards which have placed its work on a par with that of the other great state universities. The faculty believes that a graduate degree should represent not only study in advanced courses but also original work on the part of the student. For this reason, a thesis is required for the masters degree as well as for the doctor ' s degree. Anyone who has done an original piece of work knows that through it he rises to new heights of attainment and finds himself living in a different intellectual atmos- phere. It has been said that the only properly conducted educational work is found in the pre-school and the graduate school. Insofar as this is true, it is because Individual initiative is given full expression. It is to be hoped that those for whom graduate work is a prepara- tion for teaching or educational administration will carry some of the spirit of the Graduate School into the schools and colleges of the State. If the Graduate School of the University, in addition to training scholars and furthering research, can instill in Its graduates a deep respect for genuine scholarship and a contempt for all sham and pretense In educational work at any level and in any part of the educational system, It will have fulfilled Its obligations to the State.

This library is on the second floor of the Adminis- tration Building. tL » 120 SCHOOL The University of Oklahoma offered graduate Instruc- tion as early as 1899. The Graduate School was first organized as a separate unit In 1909. The first master ' s degree was conferred in June, 1900, and the first degree of Doctor of Philosophy was conferred In June, 1929. The legislative faculty of the Graduate School is com- posed of the President, the Dean, heads of departments offering courses for graduate credit, and members of the University faculty who regularly teach courses pri- marily for graduate students. The administrative work of the Graduate School Is carried on by the Graduate Council appointed each year by the President. The Dean of the Graduate School Is ex officio chairman of the Graduate Council. Dr. htomer Levi Dodge, Professor of Physics, serves as Dean of the Graduate School. Admission to the School Is granted to all graduates of the University of Oklahoma and to graduates of other colleges and universities of approved standing. Gradu- ates of the University of Oklahoma are admitted upon application to the Dean of the Graduate School. A graduate of another college or university must file a certificate of graduation Issued by the registrar of the school of which he is a graduate. A student attains full graduate standing when his general preparation Includes work equivalent to that of the bachelor ' s degree from the University of Oklahoma and when he has met the requirements for work of graduate rank In the departments In which graduate work Is to be done. The University confers the degrees of Master of Arts, Master of Science, Master of Education, Master of Science in Engineering, Master of Business Administra- tion, and Master of Science in Pharmacy; and the de- grees of Doctor of Philosophy and Doctor of Education. Although there is a minimum number of hours for which one of these advanced degrees may be granted, the requirements are not based primarily on courses and credits, but rather on thorough preparation, ability to pass a number of examinations, both written and oral, and original work as evidenced in theses which are re- quired to be written. Every student who receives an advanced degree must have presented a rather exhaustive and original treat- ment of some subject related to his field, in his thesis. Copies of this thesis must be furnished the library and they are kept on file there for the use of future students of similar problems. The Graduate School has had a steady growth since Its beginning. Its progress during the last 10 years has been particularly notable and It is rapidly assuming a place as one of the outstanding graduate schools in this part of the country. The enrollment during the past year amounted to approximately 400 students. At the present moment the School is seriously handicapped by the lack of space. A number of graduate niirory bTuutntb are inuwn nere in the Ptiillips Collection. This collection of books and documents Is In the basement of Monnett Hall and Is open to use only by advanced students In the history department. Two graduates In the department of physics are seen here con- ducting an experiment In one of the research laboratories of that department. These laboratories are in the basement of the Administration Building.

MONNETT About the time of Statehood, when the Inflow of population to Oklahoma was so great, the need of a School of Law became so pressing that a number of the more enterprising lawyers and judges of Oklahoma City organized temporarily the Epworth University Law School. In 1909, as soon as the University Regents felt that the financial condition of the University was such as to per- mit it, they organized the University of Oklahoma Law School, and the Epworth Law School Immediately dis- continued and sent Its students here to finish their courses. The main university building had been destroyed by fire and It was almost impossible to house the new Law School upon the campus. It was seriously proposed to take it to the county court house and the County Com- THE SCHOOL missioners very kindly tendered the use of that building, but space was finally found in the Geology Museum in the old Science Hall, where a place was cleared large enough to accommodate the class. Wooden shelving was built around this space for a Law Library and only first year work was given, there being but two members on the faculty. Liberal appropriations from the Legislature made possible the erection of the present Bedford stone build- ing in 1912. The building, one of the finest in the coun- try, has rooms devoted to class work, ofTices for the faculty, practice court, and a fairly extensive library. The case-book method of study was pursued from the start, and the lectures taken in conjunction with the cita- tions in the library enable the law student to glean a substantial and well-rounded knowledge of all branches of the law. The enrollment has increased perceptibly each year, and proportionately the standards and requirements for entrance and graduation have been made more rigid. Formerly those graduating from the Law School were admitted to practice on motion, but since the passing of the Bar Act the graduate must also pass the State Bar Examination before he Is admitted. At this time It takes the student three years to com- plete the law course proper, consisting of a study of a full curriculum of general and specialized subjects. The graduates of the Law School have consistently distin- guished themselves as members of the bench and bar of this state.

Page 126 OF LAW The School of Law was organized In the fall of 1909 in response to a general demand that the University should provide opportunities and facilities for legal train- ing equal to the best afforded elsewhere. Its ainn Is to inculcate a sound knowledge of the common law and equity, of constitutional law and federal procedure, of English and American modification In both substantive and adjective law, and of the statutes, decisions, and practice of the state of Oklahoma. It Is now generally conceded that such results can be attained more suc- cessfully In a law school than elsewhere. The busy lawyer finds little time for the systematic Instruction of the student In his office. The result Is that such study tends to become desultory and unprofitable. In a law school the student has the constant help and direction of a body of trained teachers devoting their time and thought to his welfare. He has the Inspiration that comes from friendly rivalry with his fellow students In the classrooms In the quiz clubs, moot courts, and practice courts. He has the advantage of a more extensive library and of encouragements and special assislance in original inves- tigation. That such Is the view of lawyers and judges generally is evidenced by the fact that a large and constantly Increasing majority of candidates now come to the bar through the medium of law schools. Much may be said for the practical possibilities of office training, but law schools are more and more attempting, and with in- creasing success, to supply their former deficiencies In this regard. It is also true that the deficiencies were never as great as has sometimes been alleged; and while it Is possible for the young lawyer to supply them. It Is nearly impossible for him to supply, after beginning actual practice, the systematic knowledge of the funda- mental principles of law which the law school gives him the opportunity to acquire. Instruction In the classroom Is by comment, quiz and colloquy. It consists largely of the analysis and discussion of cases. Instead of placing before the student a set of legal principles which he Is required to learn, the much more difficult task is assigned him of reading the actual opinions contained In the reports and ascertain- ing therefrom the law Involved. He Is then required to apply that law to other cases, both hypothetical and actual. In so doing he Is both assisted and criticized by the instructor, who guides and coordinates the discussion toward a definite end. Copious references are constantly made for extensive outside reading, and students are constantly encouraged to use the library. The law library, constantl y growing, contains many thousand volumes. These books have been carefully selected and the list contains most of the essentials. Other Installments will be procured from time to time, as it Is the purpose of the school to build up rapidly a library that will answer all the purposes of legal study and Investigation. The leading law journals are kept constantly on file. A committee of the faculty has general supervision of the library, and a librarian and student assistant librarian are in charge to give needed information and maintain order. The library is open during the day and in the evening. The Faculty of the School of Law, left to right: Muggins, Swinford, Cheadb. Monnert, Kuip, Wright.

Junior Ross is such a fine student that he even reads his cases on the way to class. Dick Wilson, secretary for Dean Monnett, Is the most popular man in the School. Joe Fred Gibson, Editor of the 1934 SOONER, now de- votes his time (part of it, anyhow) to the study of the law.

The first objective is to educate teachers, supervisors, and administrators for the schools of the State. Pro- grams are provided for all types of teaching, supervision, and administration. In these programs the College of Education cooperates with the other departments of the University, and, as a result, students have an oppor- tunity to come In contact with not only the best in- structors of the country In their chosen fields, but in addi tion, have an opportunity to receive a broad and liberal education In preparing for the work they expect to pursue. In cooperation with the State Board of Edu- cation, the College of Education has planned definite programs leading to the various teaching fields in the schools of the State. The State Board of Education now grants teaching certificates in terms of these fields. This is a forward step since teachers, supervisors, and admin- THE COLLEGE istrators are licensed to teach only in those fields in which they have made thorough preparation. The second objective is to add to the field of pro- fessional knowledge in the fields of teaching, supervision, and administration. In this conneciion research is carried on in all types of teaching, supervision, and adminis- tration, with a view to finding new and better ways for Improving the work in these fields. The various research studies are bound in book form and are made available to students and the schools of the State. The third objective is to assist in improving school work over the State. Members of the faculty conduct surveys of school systems, revise courses of study in the schools of the State, assist in the improvement of class- room teaching, etc. The faculty of the College of Education provides the following types of guidance for students. First, guidance In the choice of program of work. Students entering the College of Education are required, first of all. to decide on the particular work they wish to pursue. With the advice of the faculty each student must choose a pro- gram among those offered. Second, guidance in per- sonal fitness for teaching. During the first year of work in the College of Education students are required to demonstrate their fitness for teaching In such qualities as scholarship, character, and intelligence. A student who Is not fitted to receive training as a teacher is advised at the end of the first year in the choice of another line of work. Univeriity High School students in a domestic science labora- tory. In this laboratory, as in other University High School daises, students of the College of Education serve as practice teachers. University Junior High School students at work in a manual training class. In the Junior High School, at in the Senior High, the work of the youngsters is supervised by University itudenti. Page 136 OF EDUCATION The College of Education was first organized as a subordinate school In the College of Arts and Sciences in 1909. It was reorganized in 1920 as a separate school and in 1929 it v as again reorganized with its present name. The first degrees in education were granted in 1922. The work of the College Is organized around three major divisions as follows: 1. University Demonstration Schools. The College of Education maintains a regular elemen- tary school, junior high school, and senior high school for laboratory purposes. All the work of the college centers around these schools. 2. Teaching Fields. Teaching fields for the different types of teaching, supervision, and administration are provided. They are of two kinds. The first Is designated as the professional field and includes the education courses that are essen- tial for the different types of teaching, supervision, and administration. The second kind Is designated as the subject-matter field and includes the subject-matter courses essential for successful work In elementary and secondary schools. 3. Broadening Courses. Teachers, supervisors, and administrators feel a need for particular courses that will broaden them along their lines of work. The broadening courses are +o satisfy such needs. Some of these courses are required and others are elective. The College of Education attempts to practice the principles of modern education In the training of teachers, supervisors, and administrators. The same fun- damental principles that underly learning In the class- room of children prevail In the education of teachers, supervisors, and administrators. Children learn by doing — so do teachers, supervisors, and administrators. This principle determines the type of Instruction provided by the College of Education. Teachers, for example, do apprentice teaching under guidance of expert supervisors In the type of teaching they plan to pursue In the schools of the state. Along with the teaching, they pur- sue both academic and professional courses that are related to their teaching experiences. The College of Education conducts a strictly profes- sional college of four years for undergraduate students and awards the professional degree of Bachelor of Science In Education In elementary teaching, In secon- dary teaching, in school supervision, and In school ad- ministration. Plans of work are provided for the dif- ferent types of teaching, supervision, and administra- tion. Each plan is made especially to meet the require- ments of the professional and subject-matter fields In- volved in a particular type of teaching, supervision, or administration. A student is required, first, to select the major type of work for which he or she wishes to prepare. He or she must then choose the appropriate plan for that particular type and must complete the courses required In the professional and subject-matter fields Included In the plan. Approximately 350 students were enrolled in the Col- lege of Education during the year 1934-35, and many others who were in other schools or colleges were en- rolled for courses in this College.

As in all phases of the schools work, " purposeful activity " is pictured here. These children are kept interested because they are largely on their own initiative.

Pag 142 - »i - The Colle e of lUisiness Administration DEAN A. b. Al AM, The best evidence of the recognition of the value of the kind of training that the College of Business Admin- istration gives is the constant growth in the nunnber of students enrolled in this college. The College of Busi- ness Administration has increased in enrollment more rapidly than has any other school of the University in the past eight years. At the present time it is about the same size as the College of Engineering which is the largest separate school other than the College of Arts and Sciences. The broad aim of the College of Business Adminis- tration is twofold: First, to give college students sys- tematic preparation for business careers so as to enable them to advance more rapidly in the business world THE COLLEGE OF after graduation: second, to give students such training as will enable them to understand the public problems, particularly those having to do with the interrelation- ships between different businesses, between business and the government, and between employer and em- ployee. In compliance with the first aim, the College of Busi- ness Administration endeavors to meet the needs of the prospective business men in the same way that schools of engineering, law, medicine, and theology have been organized to meet the professional needs of prospec- tive engineers, lawyers, physicians, and ministers. Busi- ness knowledge and experience have become so systema- tized in most branches that they can be taught in class- rooms: so that business in its higher term has come to be as much a learned profession as engineering, law, medicine, or other similar professions; and business de- mands of those who make a success in the field a thorough scientific and practical training. In compliance with the second aim, the College of Business Administration stresses the social and cultural side of training: it endeavors to turn out not only tech- nically trained students in business subjects, but also men and women of broad vision and culture. For this reason students are required to take courses of a broad funda- mental character as well as technical business courses in order to complete the requirements for graduation.

Page 144 BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION The College of Business Administration was formally created by the Board of Regents in 1929. Prior to this, business courses were offered, first, in 1913 in the School of Commerce and Industry, a subordinate school in the College of Arts and Sciences. In 1917 this name was changed to the School of Public and Private Business and in 1923 the School of Business was established as a two-year school, authorized to confer the degree of Bachelor of Science in Business. In cooperation with the Graduate School the College of Business Administration offers the degree of Master of Business Administration. At the present, a certificate in secretarial studies is also offered. In June 1927, the Board of Regents created the Bureau of Business Research as a part of the College of Business Administration. The work of the Bureau, carried on by the faculty members and advanced students, is to make scientific, and unbiased studies of practical, economic and business problems which affect the welfare of Oklahoma. It affords a means whereby the entire school is kept in touch with the practical busi- ness life of the community. The Faculty of the College of Business Administration is composed of the president, dean, professors, associate professors, assistant professors, and instructors in the departments of accounting, business administration, busi- ness law, economics, finance, and secretarial work, as well as the heads of the departments of chemistry, English, geography, government, mathematics, modern languages, philosophy, physics, psycho ' ogy, and zoology. Admission to the College of Business Administration Is granted to applicants who have completed work in an accredited four year or three year high school and who present twelve units of acceptable credit as re- quired for general university admission. Graduates of unaccredited high schools may secure admission to the College of Business Administration upon examination. To secure the degree of Bachelor of Science in Busi- ness the candidate must complete 124 semester hours of work with sufficient grades to total 155 grade points, of which at least 55 must be in the major and minor subjects. The major and minor subjects must be taken within the five departments of the College — Economics, Finance, Business Administration, Accounting, and Busi- ness Law. The first two years are devoted to general requirements prescribed by the faculty, while the junior and senior years are spent in major and minor subjects of the candidate ' s own choice. The College of Business Administration, under the able leadership of Dean Arthur Barto Adams, Ph. D., holds the belief that a college training of the kind here offered will shorten the student ' s apprenticeship so that at the end of a few years he will be further advanced in his line of work and have a more comprehensive outlook over the whole field of business activity than he other- wise wou ld. The curriculum is not designed to give students a short cut to business positions. Front row, lett to right: Wilhite. Weaver, Adams, Leske.

Assistant Editor GRANT MANLEY Assistant Editor The Independent Men ' s Association was organ- ized on its present basis on October I, 1934. It seeks to include in its organization every inde- pendent man on the cannpus. In order to do this six districts adjacent to the campus are oper- ating, with approximately the same number of men in each. Each district carries on its yearly program under the management of an organizer and a board of directors. In keeping with the southwestern tradition, these districts are named with some of the best-known cattle brands of the plains country. In each district is a headquarters at which place Monday evening meetings, smok- ers, partie s and forums are held. Socially, the I. M. A. has staged nine dances during the present year. The association also has put on four big parties for those who do not dance. In addition, a class of instruction for those men who desire to learn to dance has been utilized by 120 men. Intramurally, the I. M. A. has entered six teams in every sport, won the trophy and championship in touchball, been runner-up in four events, put on its own inter-district debate tournament, and published its own newspaper every two weeks. Scholastically, the I. M. A. awarded two trophies, one to the district having the highest scholarship record and the other bearing the names of all independent men who made a straight " A " record.

The nucleus of the organization was the member- ship of the local chapter of the national organi- zation. Blue Key, which was disbanded because of Internal strife and the resignation of several prominent members. Because of strife which has since arisen In the national organization. Skeleton Key has not petitioned for le ' nstatement but has remained a local. The organization Is committed to co-operation with the faculty; to study student problems, stim- ulate progress, and promote the interests of the University. The plan of meetings and activity Is similar to that of Rotary, regular luncheon meetings being held at which time problems are discussed. The group stands ready to serve the University in any capacity that calls for a group of represent- ative students. New members are selected each spring In con- nection with Senior Day activities. The members are elected on the basis of outstanding qualities In leadership, character, scholarship, student ac- tivities and service. A member remains ectlve as long as he continues In school.

The name Mortar Board was taken from the local name of the Ohio State chapter, but in order to secure for the national organization a place among the Greek societies, a Greek motto was adopted. The pin of Ohio State, a little black mortar board, was chosen. Quoting from the preamble of the constitution of the national organization, the purpose of Mortar Board Is: " To provide for the co-opera- tion between senior honorary societies for women, to promote college loyalty, to advance the spirit of service and fellowship among univer- sity women, and to stimulate and develop a finer type of college woman. " In short, the object is service, scholarship and leadership. The Owl and Triangle chapter was Installed at the University of Oklahoma In 1925, the thirty- first chapter to be recognized by the national organization. In pursuance with the standards set by the national, members must have at least a " B " average scholastically and in addition must have shown evidence of leadership and interest In extra-curricular activities. New members are elected each year by the outgoing chapter from undergraduates who have completed five-eighths of their college work. The pledging ceremony of the University chapter is held in conjunction with Senior Day activities. One of the outstanding accomplishments of the local chapter during the past few years has been the selection of an honor class of junior women to meet with prominent women for the purpose of discussing cultural subjects.

The complete nanne of the organization is Ne- hook-se-de-Pe-et-e-de-do-de-wah-de, an Indian ternn nneaning " ten best men. " It is the only one of the men ' s senior honorary societies for which any man in the University Is eligible. Selection of members is made on the basis of scholarship and participation in extra-curricular activities. Junior standing and a " B " average are prerequisites for consideration. Each spring, every man In the University who Is a junior and has an average of " B " or better for his three years is given an opportunity to make application for membership. In order to qualify for membership a man must score 100 points. An " A " average counts 80 points and a " B " average 60 with averages be- tween these two being scaled proportionately. Various campus activities are rated according to a set schedule of points. After all the points have been added the ten men with the highest totals are selected providing there are that many who have more than 100 points. However, the requirements are so rigid that the full quota of ten members per year Is seldom reached. The original constitution of the order, as draft- ed by the charter members In 1910, is still In use, as are the traditional forms of pledging and initi- ation. Pledging Is held each year In connection with Senior Day activities. The initiation takes the form of an Indian ritual and is entirely secret.

Members are selected on a basis of scholarship, leadership, character and interest In school affairs. Membership is limited to eight men each year. A member must have attained junior standing and each member remains active only one year. Pledging is held each spring on Senior Day and after the initiation, which follows shortly, the old class becomes inactive and the new class assumes Its duties. Although the primary purpose of the order Is kept secret. It Is known that Checkmate strives to further high ideals in the senior class and to bring about close co-operation among the student leaders In the various schools of the University. Accomplishments of the organization remain known only to the members. Because of the secret nature of the order, no records are kept of any meetings or activities. The only records which the organization keeps are the original constitution and mitlation ritual, which have been carefully passed down from one group to the next.

YADON Phi Eta Sigma, national honorary scholastic fraternity for freshman men, was founded at the University of Illi- nois in 1923, the purpose being to encourage scholarship among freshman men. The local chapter, fourth in the national organization, was installed on this campus on April 12, 1927. The Oklahoma chapter has initiated over 300 men and almost every member has remained to finish school and has continued to maintain a high scholastic average. The organization helds a smoker at the end of the first nine weeks of each year to which are invited all freshmen who have as much as a " B " average in their work up to that date. The requirements for membership, however, are an average of 2.5 which may be satisfied either in the first semester of the student ' s enrollment in school or over the entire first year. Fred Newton and Earl Sneed, winners of the 1932 and 1933 Dad ' s Day cups for the best all-around man, were members of Phi Eta Sigma, as was Carl Albert, former Rhodes scholar, and many other students who have later gained prominence both on and off the campus. Professor M. L. ' Wardell and Professor L. N. Morgan serve as faculty sponsors for the group and Professor Wardell holds the office of Historian in the national organization.

While attending a basketball game in the " Old Gym " several former football men in their enthusiasm began stomping their feet and raising an uproar in general. Accused of acting like rough necks, the men decided to form an association for the promulgation of pep at all athletic contests. They adopted the name given them and it has continued. The purpose of the organization is to foster pep among the student body: encourage attendance at all contests: supervise rallies: and to uphold the traditions of Sooner- land. Eligibility of members is determined by junior standing in the university. Two fraternity men from each house and eighteen non-fraternity men make up the quota of Ruf-Neks.

The organization is chartered for national member- ship, and word has been received from the Uni- versity of Illinois and the University of Iowa that groups there are interested in Installing chapters. The program of the University of Oklahoma chatper of Phantom Mask seems to deal in " firsts. " Besides being the first organization of the kind in the country, the group has sponsored the first radio-play writing contest for Oklahoma, has held the first radio-writing short-course In the state, has broadcast the radio-dramatization of a first-novel, and, in April, 1935, conducted the first radio-play production contest for high schools In this section of the country. Each year the program Includes some new ac- tivity, but no one can predict what It will be, because some member of Phantom Mask will be the first to think of It. The radio-play contest which was first spon- sored In 1932 is open to anyone in Oklahoma. Any type of play may be entered — comedy, tragedy, drama, or farce — on any subject from a family quarrel to an economic revolution. Both original plays and adaptations of stories are ac- ceptable. Anyone who fears to compete with Shakespeare and Moliere may adapt Poe or Mau- passant. In addition to sponsoring many such events. Phantom Mask broadcasts a number of plays each school year. These plays are radio- adaptations of classic and modern plays and short stories, and plays written expressly for radio use. Page 173 i,. Caylor. Randolf,r, BOOMERS MEMBERS JOHN RAILEY BOB RANDOLPH GENE KENDALL GARTH TAYLOR DICK ELLEGOOD RANNY KENNEDY JACK MAJORS EVERETT GOINS WILLARD AXLEY The Boomers, primarily and always a college band, liave ever been exceedingly popular on or off the cam- pus. Since their introduction to Oklahoma University in 1921. they have been a tradition, a name that figures strongly and permanently in the minds of those who plan a party or a dance. Although the personnel changes diong with the management from year to year as the members graduate and fnish their college careers, no change has ever been made for the worse, a fact that is substantiated by their ever increasing popularity. The band besides being a musical organization, is also an organization strong in the bonds of good fellowship with an objective — that of working together toward the climax of a college career. " Once a Boomer, a Boomer until you leave school. Being a commonwealth aggregation piloted by a Business Manager and a Musical Director, a new member cannot be engaged or an old member dis- missed without the will of the entire group. When a manager or a director graduates, a new one is elected by the membership of the band who will be in school the •following year. Thus the Boomers exist year after year, becoming more and more renowned as a musical unit. Those who have already graduated with the sole aid of this organization, look back with regret that they have had to leave it but yet are proud with the knowledge that they have helped to build it into the famous unit that it is today, and so the Boomers soar to new heights each year. The summer months find them in great demand in in- numerable resorts throughout the country: and each fall finds them playing for many of the rush parties held at the beginning of each school year. The orchestra was organized in the fall of 1921 by Bonnie Spenser and was called the " Sooners " but the name was changed the following year to the " Boomers " and that name has been the official title since. In the fall of 1922, Spenser was succeeded by Curtis Smith as manager and he remained at the helm until 1929 when Byron McFall was elected manager. In 1932 Truman " Pinky " Tomlin took over the reins and in 1933 Chester Stinnett became the manager. At present the band is managed by Everett " Red " Goins.

At the end of the school year 1926-1927 the infantry part of the unit was dropped and from that time until the present year the entire unit was devoted to field artillery. At the beginning of the present year, a small detachment of ordnance was added. Every man student in the University, unless excused for physical disability, is required to take the first two years of military training. The last two years is limited to around 140 men per year. Those who complete the four- year course and spend six weeks in a summer camp at Fort Sill receive commissions as Second Lieutenants in the Organized Reserve Corps. The University R. O. T. C. received the " Distinguished College " rating from 1923 to 1928. the rating of " Excel- lent " from 1928 to 1934, and the rating of " Excellent- Superior, " the highest ever given to an R. O. T. C. unit. In 1934. At the present time the field artillery part of the corps is organized into a brigade of three regiments. , » • F Top row. left to riqht: Colonel J. T. Wilco«ion, Colonel J. G. Roy.

They organized with the purpose of promoting a better spirit of harmony and fellov ship among the basic stu- dents of the University unit. The members of the original chapter attempted to select those men from the basic corps who displayed a distinct proficiency as soldiers, as well as outstanding qualities of leadership and person- ality. One of the original objects of the Bombardier s is to train the members in the school of the soldier and the school of the squad. Command and leadership as well as the study of the maneuvers of the foot drills, come in for particular emphasis. Expert training is furnished the members in these fields, most important to the basic stu- dent. In addition to this basic training a number of out- side speakers are brought in to give instruction in special phases of military science. Candidates for membership must have maintained at least a " B " average, and have been passed upon by a committee of faculty members as fit from a standpoint of leadership and character.

The purpose of the organization is to aid the sororities of the University by co-operation and by unification of interests of sorority and non-sorority women. The work of the Council is divided into three phases: The settlement of all problems concerning activities of the sororities; making and enforcing of all rules concerning rushing, pledging and initiation; and the sponsorship of scholarship competition among sorority women. Each semester the Council makes an award to the sorority which has maintained the highest grade average during that semester. Page 245 KAPPA ALPHA THETA Kappa Alpha Theta was organized at Indiana Asbury University (now DePauw) on January 27, 1870. The moving spirit was Bettie Locke, ' 7!, with whom were associated Alice Allen, ' 7!, Betty Tipton, ' 71, and Hanna Fitch, ' 73. It was the first Greek letter society of women, orgar - ized with principles and methods akin to those of men ' s fraternities. These founders wrote a simple initiation ceremony the principles of which are the basis of Kappa Alpha Theta ' s present ritual. There are at present sixty-four chapters of the national organization, four of which are in Can- ada. The membership Is approximately 25,000. Until 1883 the government was in the hands of the Alpha chapter as were many other fraternity governments. At this time It was changed and Is now vested In a grand Council composed of the national officers of the sorority. A biennial con- vention Is held by the order, in which all the legis- lative and judicial powers are vested. A loan and fellowship fund assists worthy undergraduates to complete their college work, and awards a graduate fellowship every third year. The badge Is kite shaped, having four sides. It is black enamel, inlaid with a white chevron, on which are displayed the Greek letters of the order. Above this are two diamond stars. The local chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta was the first chapter of a women ' s national fraternity to be Installed on this campus. Alpha Omicron was Installed In August, 1909. iMA JO LANDSIHEL MISS IVO Vk ' ILSON Prominent alumnae of the university chapter of Theta are: Mary McDougal McKay Exelson, author of " Life Begins " ; Violet McDougal, poet laureate of the state of Oklahoma; Corrlnne Breeding, Oklahoma City; Mrs. Walter Ferguson, columnist for Scripps Howard newspapers; Miss Betty Kirk, New York City; Miss Dorothy Kirk, Mrs. Nell R.

They associ- ated with them seventeen members of the lower classes. There are at present 76 active chapters of the national organization with a membership of around 20,000. Wearers of the star and crescent have had a turbulent history as no less than a half dozen of their chapters have been killed by anti-fraternity laws, but all have been revived by the absorption of local chapters at the universities where the original chapters were located. Government of the organization is vested in a national council, composed of nine officers. The president, secretary, and treasurer constitute the executive committee. There are three provinces divided Into sections of four to eight chapters, and each section Is supervised by a deputy. A quarterly journal, The Trident, whose first issue appeared in 1891 on the third anniversary of Delta Delta Delta, has been published continu- ously since. The official badges are: for the first degree, a silver trident; for the second degree, three jew- eled stars within a crescent of gold of three hun- dred degrees, bearing the three " Deltas " of gold and Inscribed In a golden circle, surrounded by six spherical triangles In blue enamel. Delta Delta Delta was the second national sorority to install a chapter at the university, the local order being accepted as Theta Gamma of the national organization in 1910. Previous to PATSY OSULLIVAN President MISS GRACE TROSPER Hostess that time the local group had been a literary soci- ety, Theta Delta Rho. The local chapter alumnae of prominence in- clude: Carenna Sellers, successful attorney of Tulsa; Frederlcka Dewey Marrs, noted Interior deco- rator, who has studied extensively abroad; Louise Wilkinson, chief dietitian of Morning- side hlospital In Tulsa.

The organ- ization was originally called the I. C. Sorosis Club but In 1888, feeling that a Greek letter name would be an advantage, the name of Pi Beta Phi was adopted. There are seventy-eight active chapters of the national organization and their membership is around 25,000. The government of Pi Phi Is vested in conven- tion which is held biennially. The chapters are grouped In geographical provinces, with a prov- ince head who handles the main part of the ad- ministrative work of her province. The Balfour Cup and the Stoolman Vase are awarded annually to the chapters which best meet their responsibilities to their colleges, their national organization and themselves. The national organization maintains a settle- ment school at Gatllnburg, Tennessee. The pur- pose of this school Is to teach the Inhabitants of that region arts and trades and to give them a liberal education. The badge Is a tiny golden arrow bearing the Greek letters of the order, transversely on the feather with a loop chain pendant from the shaft. The local chapter of PI Beta Phi was Installed on this campus In 1910 as Oklahoma Alpha.

The four founders were anxious to establish a Greek letter fraternity " like the men ' s " as there were three national men ' s fraternities on the Monmouth campus. The four had not at that time learned of any women ' s orders being established prior to that time. There are now 73 active chapters with a total membership of 20,000. During the years from 1870 to 1876, the Alpha chapter acted as the grand chapter. This was finally supplanted and Kappa became the pio- neer In the establishment of the grand council form of fraternity government among women ' s organizations. There is at present an executive secretary who carries on much of the work of the national chapter. Kappa Kappa Gamma called the first national Pan-Hellenic convention, representatives of seven women ' s organizations meeting In Boston, April 16 and 17, 1891, the presiding officer being Kappa ' s grand president. The badge Is a golden key, one Inch In length, plain or set with pearls, with the Greek letters of the order on the stem and the letters Alpha Omega Omicron on the ward. The key was cho- sen as the badge at the time of founding but the size and general appearance have been modified. The local chapter of Kappa Kappa Gamma on this campus was organized at the old DeBarr hlouse on Boulevard and became Beta Theta raa VIRGINIA SHIRE Prejident MRS. L.

This was called the Alpha chapter but it was nine years before a second chapter was established. No charter has ever been withdrawn from a chapter; the Barnard chapter becoming inactive with the abolishment of sororities from the col- lege. Government of the group is vested in the con- vention, the General Board and the Board of Governors. A chapter house and student loan fund, ad- ministered by a special committee, is known as the Founders ' Loan Fund in memory of the found- ers of Alpha Phi. Most of the older chapters maintain their own student loan funds. Each semester, a scholarship committee receives from an alumnae advisor of each chapter, a report of the scholarship standing of the chapter and the standing of initiates. During the World War, Alpha Phi maintained at Rouen, France, a foyer for women munition workers, consisting of a recreation room, a cafe, and a gymnasium. Phi chapter, during the war, received a prize offered by National for doing the most work. The official pin was adopted in 1908 and con- sists of a plain gold monogram of the two Greek letters of the order. Phi chapter of Alpha Phi was founded on this campus in 1917. At present there are 31 active chapters of the national organization with a total membership of approximately 9,000.

The founders were Anna Boyd, Eva Webb and Mary Comfort. The idea of the society came to them as they spent the Christmas holidays of 1873 at the school. They organized as soon as work was resumed and dur- ing the year 1874 they admitted four more mem- bers to what they called the Delta Gamma Soci- ety. Without consulting anyone they chose their name and badge and wrote their constitution and ritual. The greater part of this first ritual is still used. The first badge was a gold letter " hi " with the Greek letters. Delta Gamma, on the cross bar. When the first charter was granted to Walter Valley Seminary, the mother chapter took the name of Psi chapter. There are at present 48 active chapters with a total membership of nearly 14,000. The fifteenth day of March of each year is ob- served by all chapters as Reunion Day, at which date all alumnae try to visit the chapters, and when that is not possible, they are expected to send a communication to them. It Is a pleasant custom and has been universally observed. Government of the order Is by convention and a council. The convention, which Is the supreme governing body, meets biennially. It Is com- posed of one delegate from each collegiate chapter and one from each alumnae chapter, the members of the council and the province secre- taries. The local chapter, Alpha lota, was admitted to the national organization In 1918. Some of the better known alumnae of the local chapter are: BeyrI Barnett, province secretary of the na- tional fraternity; MARGERY MEACHAM MRS. MERLE C.

There were four founders of the original chapter and the founding of the order is appropriately celebrated at this date by all chapters of the national sorority. Government is vested in a grand council of seven alumnae officials, elected by the conven- tion. For administrative purposes, chapters are grouped geographically in seven provinces. Each province has a director and each holds a confer- ence in alternate years between the biennial con- vention. There Is a scholarship requirement for initiation and an annual award is given the chapter of the national group with the highest scholarship rank. During the World War, the sorority gave, through the Milk Bottle Campaign, approximate- ly $10,000 to Belgian babies. After the war, the organization engaged In an active campaign for Near East Relief. As a national altruistic work, the sorority assumed the maintenance of a sum- mer camp for under-privileged children, situated in the Colorado mountains. The badge Is a monogram of three letters sur- rounded by a black enamel crescent. The local fraternity. Kappa Lambda, was or- ganized In 1917 for the purpose of petitioning Gamma Phi Beta. The group was successful in their endeavors and became PsI chapter of Gamma Phi Beta in September, 1918. Alumnae of the local chapter of Gamma Phi Beta who are prominent are: Mrs. Marius J. LIndloff, prominent singer, who played the leading role In the opera " Faust, " when it was presented in 1933 In various cities over the state; Dorothy Jane hHenry, selected as one of the ten girls to receive a scholarship to Tulane VIVIAN KNOX President MRS.

Claremore Page 261 ALPHA GAMMA DELTA Alpha Gamma Delta was founded at Syracuse University on May 30, 1904, by Jennie Clara Titus, Marguerite Shepard, and ten others. There was a very early feeling among the members of the sorority that the greatest inter- nal development could not be possible unless an altruistic work were taken up by the entire group. When the question was raised the response was unanimous for the work to be in regard to chil- dren ' s needs. Accordingly, at the 1919 national convention it was decided there should be estab- lished a summer camp for children who would not otherwise be able to enjoy such benefits. There are 48 active chapters of the sorority with a total membership of approximately 10,000. Government of the organization is by biennial convention and by a grand council of seven mem- bers, meeting annually and serving as a govern- ing body during the Interim between conven- tions. A national award is made to the active chap- ter having the highest scholastic average. The award is made annually, and consists of a silver rose bowl, given by the founders and charter members prior to 1917. The badge is a monogram In gold of the three Greek letters in the name. The Oklahoma chapter, Upsllon, was secretly ELEANOR KYLE President MRS. J. B. McALESTER Hostess installed on May 2, 1919, becoming national at the start.

On June 24, 1904, the name was changed to Phi Mu and a national expansion policy was adopted. Wesleyan College, where the sorority was or- ganized, has the distinction of being the oldest college for women in America. It was incorpo- rated in 1836. From its founding, the organization has re- tained the characteristics of the fraternal bond. The same Ideals, Insignia, ritual and constitution are part of Phi Mu today, the only changes being those necessitated by the passage of years and the transition from a local to a national sphere. There are fifty-seven active chapters of the national organization with a membership of about 10,000. Phi Mu appropriates $1000 a year for a grad- uate fellowship administered by the fellowship committee of the American Association of Uni- versity Women to be open to graduate women in any university where Phi Mu has a chapter. The national philanthropy of the organization is the healthmobi le, a child hygiene truck, oper- ating in the state of Georgia. The badge Is a shield of black enamel display- ing a hand holding a heart. Above is a band of gold bearing the Greek letters of the order and below is a band of gold bearing three stars. The local chapter, Epsilon Beta, was installed In 1923 as a result of being granted a charter from the national group. The local. Phi Zeta, was or- ganized that same year and holds the distinction of being granted a charter in only eleven months. MARY HARRIEH COVERT Presldenr MRS. G. W.

The six charter menn- bers were assisted by Nathan House who was their ritualist and honorary mennber of the order. Today, he is known as " Brother Nat " and as a tribute to him, no other man is permitted to wear the " Torch. " At first the plan v as to keep the society a local one but favorable reports regard- ing similar groups led to a policy of expansion. There are at present ten chapters of the na- tional group with a membership of approximately a thousand. The national government of the sorority is vested in an executive council, elected by the convention held biennially. Its members visit the chapters. Each active chapter undertakes some worthy charitable activity within the city of its estab- lishment. An endowment fund aids worthy girls in maintaining themselves in college. A scholar- ship cup is annually awarded the chapter having the highest average. The badge is a torch of gold with a diamond flame. Across the center of the torch are the Greek letters of the order and below the letters are five pearls. In the end of the torch handle is the sixth pearl. The local sorority became a member of the national organization on September 14, 1929. MILUREO (-UTORANSKY President MKb. I.

The fraternity was established with the idea of cre- ating an organization to foster and nnalntain the manners, customs, and ideals of character and achievement of the Southern people. Washington and Lee University, under the presidency of Kappa Alpha ' s Robert E. Lee, was considered the appropriate place for the Inaugu- ration of the fraternity. It has confined Itself to the South with the exception of planting three chapters in California. For more than twenty years there has been no convention consideration of extension beyond the " chosen limits " and the policy is declared to be fixed. There are sixty-five active chapters of the or- ganization with a total membership of approxi- mately 25,000. The original badge of the order consisted of a single gold shield, unjeweled. In the center of which was a circle of black enamel enclosing a Latin cross in gold and above which was a plain arched band of gold enclosing the letters " K. A. " in black enamel. The present badge consists of one gold shield superimposed upon another; It has a Greek cross of gold within the circle and above are the letters in gold on a black field. After several months ' existence as a local fra- ternity the petitioning body was granted a char- ter as Beta Eta chapter of Kappa Alpha in 1905, being the first national social fraternity on the campus of the University of Oklahoma.

The founders were not denied the opportunity to become associated with some of the dozen fraternities of the time at the University but three of them, William Grigsby McCormick, Ed- mund Law Rogers, Jr., and Frank Courtney Nico- demus, had been close friends as young men in Baltimore. They desired to form their own asso- ciation under their own leadership, which resulted In the formation of Kappa Sigma. The relations of these three and the other two founders were so close that In the literature and tradition of the fraternity they are known as the " five friends and brothers. " Kappa Sigma has leased the room. No. 46 East Lawn, University of Virginia, where the fraternity was founded, as a memorial. During the frater- nity ' s semi-centennial celebration in 1919, a tab- let was placed In the room commemorating the founders and the founding. There are one hundred and eight active chap- ters of the national fraternity and the member- ship approximates 35,000. In 1910, national officers of Kappa Sigma be- gan a systematic survey of the scholarship of Its active members. The fraternity has each year since published reports on the scholarship of its chapters and classroom standing of members has been one of the chief concerns of the fraternity. The badge is a crescent of chased gold with points turned downward and holding suspended a five pointed star enameled In black with a nar- row border of white enamel and gold. Vv ' IthIn the star are the Greek letters. Kappa Sigma. The crescent contains skull and bones and crossed swords and keys. Alpha Delta Sigma was granted a petition to GENE HODGES President MRS. F. D.

The moving spirit of the frater- nity was John Reily Knox, ' 39. He is designated within the fraternity as " Pater " Knox. Due to the unpopular attitude toward secret societies by both students and professors at that time, the existence of Beta was kept in absolute secrecy. Membership was restricted to those who could be absolutely trusted. At one time in order to maintain the secrecy of the order it was necessary to hold a mock initiation for an un- desirable student who had found out about the secret fraternity at Miami. For eight years after the foundation of the fraternity the parent chapter held the reins of government. In 1847 the convention of chapters established a " Presiding Chapter " system. In 1872 a general secretary was appointed who shared the work of administration. At the pres- ent time the fraternity is governed by a Board of Directors who control the fraternity during the time between conventions. In 1919 two endowment funds were estab- lished. The Baird Fund, designed primarily as a magazine endowment which secures the publica- tion of the Magazine of Beta Theta PI. The Parmelee Fund was established In 1929 by Wil- liam B. Parmelee for the purpose of making loans to members, to enable them to complete their college work. The badge of Beta Is an eight sided shield, the sides of which curl Inward. On a field of black enamel are displayed three stars of gold, a wreath of greenish gold encircling a diamond, the ALLEN CALVERT President MRS. NED MILLER Hostess Greek letters. Beta Theta PI, and below. In smaller Greek letters, the motto of the fraternity. Gamma Phi chapter of the national fraternity located at this University was granted a charter In 1907, being the third national fraternity to establish a fraternity on this campus.

Tulsa Page 277 SIGMA NU Sigma Nu originated from the Legion of Honor, a secret society organized in 1868 at Virginia Military Institute. The Legion of hHonor was an association of students drawn together around Jannes F. Hopkins, the leader of the nnove- ment which opposed the overbearing control of another secret society. The Greek letter desig- nation and other characteristics of college frater- nities were adopted January I, 1869, regarded as the founding of Sigma Nu. There are ninety-four chapters active in the national organization at the present time. Mem- bership of the fraternity numbers around 29,000. The real and permanent growth of Sigma Nu began early in Its second decade with the estab- lishment of chapters at North Georgia College and Washington and Lee. Both of these chap- ters were chartered through direct action of the parent chapter and thus were Immediately co- ordinated. These three chapters, the Delta of the organization, were the nucleus around which the fraternity has been built. The badge Is from a design made by J. F. Hopkins, the founder. It is gold, with five white arms meeting In a center of black enamel, on which is colled a gold serpent; each arm displays a pair of crossed swords and a letter, forming the sequence " Sigma Nu Epsilon Tau Tau. " The local fraternity. Delta Alpha, was given its EVER EH COTTER President MRS. MABEL SMITH Hostess charter as Delta Epsilon of Sigma Nu on January I, 1909. Prominent alumni of the local chapter of Sigma Nu are: Ben Owen, Director of Intramural Athletics at the University; Jesse Rader, University Librarian; Dr. McBrlde of Oklahoma City.

Chief of these founders was Noble Leslie De Votie who had written the ritual, devised the grip and chosen the name. The fraternity was de- signed to be national In extent and had seven chapters before the end of the year 1857. When the Civil War came, Sigma Alpha Epsi- lon had between four and five hundred members. Three hundred and seventy-six of them went to war, including every member of the chapters at Hampden-Sydney, the Georgia Military Institute, the Kentucky Military Institute and Oglethorpe University. More than sixty members of the fra- ternity lost their lives in the war. One of the incidents in the fraternity history is the story of a woman member. When the mem- bers of the Kentucky Military Institute chapter went to war, they left their ritual and other secret papers in the possession of a young Kentucky girl. Miss Lucie Pattie. She kept the papers care- fully and when the chapter was reformed at the close of the war, delivered them to the proper party. For this, she was made a member of the fraternity. The badge of the order is diamond shaped, and bears on the groundwork of blue enamel, the device of Minerva with a lion crouching at her feet. Upon the gold corner appear the letters of the fraternity and below the letters. Phi Alpha. The twenty-one members of the local chapter, lota Alpha, were initiated into the national frater- nity on October 23, 1909. JEROME MOONEY President MRS.

It was established June 28. 1855, by six men who had been members of the Kappa chapter of Delta Kappa Epsllon. A disagreement arose In that chapter In reference to a certain literary society and the election of one of its members to the society. The above mentioned men refused to vote for the proposed brother, giving as reasons the superior qualities of an- other man. As the chapter was evenly divided, there could be no decision and the six men with- drew from Deke and formed another society under the name of Sigma Phi. The standard with which the fraternity began was stated to be that " of admitting no man to membership in it who was not believed to be a man of good character, of fair ability, of ambitious purposes, and of con- genial disposition. " The organization being fully completed, the badges were worn publicly on June 28, 1855. The new society was not cordially welcomed and some of Its rivals entered into a plan to steal its ritual which was successfully done. Accordingly, a new constitution and ritual were prepared and the new name of Sigma Chi adopted. Beta Kappa chapter was installed on this cam- pus In 1912. Prominent alumni of the Beta Kappa chapter are: Frank Buttram, well known oil operator and three times President of the University Board of Regents; Victor E. Monnett, director of the University School of Geology; Ray Courtwrlght, Assistant Director of Ath- letics at the University of Michigan; MRS. W. S.

A constitution was adopted on May I, 1848. which is recognized by the fraternity as founders day. The first meeting of the fraternity provided for the establishment of " foreign chapters. " The patronage of Jefferson College being largely from southern states, it was natural that expan- sion should be in the South, and eleven of the first sixteen chapters organized prior to the Civil War were located in southern states. The McMillan Log Cabin, the first Jefferson College building at Cannonsburg, is in the per- petual care of the fraternity and bears a bronze tablet in honor of the founders. In 1909 all the graves of the founders were marked with suitable memorials. The fraternity maintains seventy active chap- ters with a membership of nearly 30,000. After petitioning four years the local frater- nity called Phi Kappa Pi was granted a charter as Nu Omega chapter of the national fraternity on March 4, 1917. An award made annually by the national or- ganization to the outstanding chapter of the fra- ternity for the year was won last year by Nu Omega chapter for the third time in ten years. Numbered among the prominent alumni of the Oklahoma Chapter of Phi Gamma Delta are: Walter Morrow, editor of the New York Tele- gram; Irving Perrine, Oklahoma City geologist; Lyman P. Wilson, member of the law faculty at Cornell University; Dorrence Roderick, publisher of the El Paso Herald and Times; JOSEPH RUCKS President MRS. D. E. AULTMAN Hostess Mell A. Nash, president of the Oklahoma Col- lege for Women at Chickasha; Josh Lee, formerly a member of the University faculty and at present a member of the Na- tional House of Representatives.

There were six charter members. In the year following organization, one of the first initiates was Benja- man hiarrison, later to become President of the United States. During its first years, the frater- nity was strictly sub rosa and it was not until 1852 that the badges of the order were worn openly. By that time the parent chapter had installed four chapters in the middle west, the first of these being at Indiana in 1849. These chapters have been in continuous existence since the days of their founding. During the first thirty-five years of the frater- nity, anti-fraternity laws caused a portion of the chapters either to suspend operations or to be- come sub rosa. Almost without exception, these chapters have been revived, the last being Law- rence College in Wisconsin. This was done only last year. General fraternity headquarters are main- tained at Oxford, Ohio, where the executive sec- retary is in charge. The fraternity maintains there, an assistant and a full staff of clerks. Oklahoma Alpha was established on this cam- pus on January 2, 1918, and was founded from the old local of Delta Theta. This chapter has the distinction of being granted a charter In the shortest time of any petitioning body of Phi Delta Theta. At present, there are 108 chapters of the national fraternity. The total membership of the fraternity Is approximately 30,000. The national fraternity Is governed by a board of five members, known as the General Council, elected at large biennially by the national con- vention. The badge, consisting of a shield with a scroll bearing the Greek letters of the fraternity JAMES RILEY President MRS. W. B. ABERNATHY Hostess In the lower part of the shield, and an eye In the upper part, was adopted in 1849. In 1866 an addition to It was made, of a sword attached to the shield by a chain.

When interest In Its work seenned to be lessening, some of the more active members be- gan to plan for a national college Masonic organ- ization. On April 30, the decision was reached to establish a fraternity to be known as Acacia and the next month officers were elected and the new fraternity was Incorporated under the laws of the state of Michigan. At the present time there are thirty-three ac- tive chapters of the organization with a member- ship total of approximately 10,000. For a few years members of other fraternities were admitted to membership In Acacia, but dual membership Is now prohibited and the chap- ters everywhere are classified with the Greek let- ter fraternity chapters In the Institutions In which they are located. The government of the fraternity Is vested In a grand conclave composed of delegates from the several chapters and meeting biennially. The supreme executive body, the grand council. Is composed of five members. The badge of the order is a right angled tri- angle of gold with jeweled border, within which are three smaller triangles. Masonic clubs In other institutions than the founding chapter were quick to appreciate the possibilities of the fraternity so that its growth from the start was rapid. The Oklahoma chapter was chartered into the national organization on May I, 1920. The local was known as the Oklahoma Masonic Club and was organized In 1914 as a petitioning body of Acacia. JOHN C.

As written in the preamble of the fraternity ' s constitution, the object of the founders was " to form a close social and fraternal union of Jewish students of the various universi- ties, colleges and professional schools in America; to foster and maintain among its sons a spirit of fraternity, a spirit of mutual moral aid and sup- port; to instill and maintain in the hearts of its sons love for and loyalty to Alma Mater and its ideals; to inculcate among its sons such ideals as will result in action worthy of the highest pre- cepts of true manhood, democracy, and hu- manity. " There are at present thirty-nine active chap- ters in the national organization with a member- ship of approximately 5000. The fraternity has an effective endowment fund plan, the purpose of which is to establish scholarships and to provide financial assistance to fratres and to chapters. Under a program of purposeful endeavor the chapters and members are urged to participate in all worthy civic and community activities. The founders cup is awarded annually at the Convention to the chapter which has attained the best record for the previous year. Scholar- ship and cultural activities are the chief bases of the award. The badge is octagonal with the Greek capi- tals, Sigma Alpha Mu, in gold letters on a black background, surrounded with sixteen pearls. Eight members of the Alpha Club of the Uni- versity of Oklahoma were initiated into Sigma Alpha Mu on May 22, 1920, as Sigma Alpha chapter.

Tradition says that the actual con- ception of the fraternity took place at Virginia Military Institute shortly after the battle of Nev Market, in which the cadets of the institution took such a memorable part. The five, finding themselves at Virginia after the war, wished to perpetuate their friendship. Room 31, West Range, University of Virginia, where the fraternity was established, was later occupied by Woodrow Wilson when a student at that University. The room is now used as a me- morial hall and two bronze plaques mark the walls, one commemorating the founding of Pi Kappa Alpha and the other a memorial to Wood- row Wilson. The Beta Delta chapter hall, owned by the New Mexico chapter, is a replica of a Pueblo Indian council chamber or estufa. Located on the cam- pus of the University of New Mexico, only Initi- ates are permitted to enter. An Interfraternity publication calls it " the most unique fraternity meeting place In the United States. " There are seventy-four active chapters of the organization with a membership of about 16,000. The design of the badge is a shield of white surmounted by a diamond In black. Upon the diamond are the three Greek capitals of the name. In the four corners of the shield are small Greek letters.

Letterman. At the time of its foundation there was an epidemic of typhoid fever in the college and day after day those who were not prostrated by the disease, sat at the bedsides of their afflicted friends, ministering to them. The warm friendships formed in such try- ing times ripened into the fraternal sentiment which led to the foundation of the fraternity. Moore entered the senior class at Union Col- lege in 1853, with the view of founding a chapter there. Finding it Impossible, he afterward en- tered the law school of the University of Virginia, and there established the first branch of the fra- ternity, to be Virginia Alpha. To his efforts, and those of Tom Campbell, the fraternity owes Its wide extension during its early years. Chapters are named on the state system. The local, Kappa PsI at Oklahoma, became Oklahoma Alpha of Phi Kappa Psi, October 9, 1920, and Is the only chapter to be granted a charter on first petition by Phi Kappa PsI In the last twenty-five years. There are 52 active chapters with more than 24,000 members in the national organization. There are alumni associations In all of the prin- cipal cities. The official publication of the national frater- nity is known as the " Shield, " which began in 1879 as a monthly publication. It was made the official organ In 1883. A private quarterly maga- zine called the " Mystic Friend " is Issued to mem- bers only. The local chapter publishes a quar- terly known as the " Sooner Phi Psi. " Prominent alumni of the local chapter include: BILL DURNIL President MRS. MAUDE CRAIG Hostess J. Bart Aldrldge, former legislator, president of the Aldrldge Hotels; David Shackleford, chief of the state publicity bureau; hlenry S. Griffing, president of the Oklahoma City Bar Association; William O. Coe, member of state legislature; George W.

It was the first frater- nity to be established after the Civil War and was projected as a national organization. The Alpha or " Mother Society " was placed at the Virginia Military Institute at Lexington, Virginia, and the Beta at Washington and Lee University in the same town. The first twenty chapters were in the South. In 1881 the first Northern chapter was chartered. As this was the first fraternity of Southern origin which was successful in maintaining chap- ters in the North, it is interesting to note that this was accomplished through members of other fraternities. Dr. Edgar F. Smith, Phi Kappa Psi, later Provost of the University of Pennsylvania, who deplored the sectional prejudice which had balked Alpha Tau Omega in its purpose to be- come national, generously offered to pledge a suitable Northern nucleus. N. Wiley Thomas, a student at Pennsylvania, was initiated and within two years established six Northern chapters. A sudden expansion of the fraternity resulted, fif- teen chapters being chartered in 1881-82. The Alpha chapter or " Mother Society " ruled the fraternity for the first five years. The consti- tution, adopted in 1865, provided for the calling of a " congress " in 1870, which convened in that year and to which was then transferred the reins of government. This was among the first at- tempts on the part of any fraternity to supersede the " presiding chapter " form of government. The government of the fraternity is vested in executive, legislative and judicial departments. The badge of the fraternity is a " cross formee " of black enamel with a circular central panel upon BAPTLEY MEADERS President MRS. F. D. APPLEBY Hostess which is shown, in gold, a crescent near the top, three stars immediately below the crescent, the letter " T " in the center and at the bottom two hands clasped. The arms of the cross display the Greek letters " alpha " and " omega " vertically and the letters " omega " and " alpha " horizon- tally. The local chapter. Delta Kappa, was chartered in 1921. The local petitioning body, Zeta Tau. was successful In obtaining its charter and at the same time acquired the distinction of having re- ceived Its charter in the shortest length of time up to that date of any chapter ever granted a charter by the national fraternity. Among the prominent alumni of Delta Kappa Chapter of Alpha Tau Omega are: Bruce Drake, University faculty member, and nationally known athlete; Don Ellison, and Frank Chilson, prominent members of the bar in Oklahoma City; Frank Watson, prominent as an attorney and orator In eastern part of the state. Outstanding A. T. O. ' s on the University cam- pus Include: hienry Lee McConnell, winner of all university oratorical contest, president of Bombardiers, varsity debater, and a member of Senate, Delta Sigma Rho, and Interfraternity Council. Jack Millaway, Ruf-Nek, and former president of the chapter. Joe Tripplehorn, Ruf-Nek, and a member of Derby club and of the Interfraternity Council. P«q» 296 «K 111 ' ! ' «» !

Page 297 DELTA TAU DELTA Delta Tau Delta was Informally organized at Bethany College, Virginia (later West Virginia), in the spring of 1858, but the formal organization was not effected until early in 1859. The first distinctively Southern fraternity, the Rainbow or W. W. W. society, united with Delta Tau Delta in 1886, after lengthy negotiations. The Rainbow fraternity was founded in 1848 at the University of Mississippi. Out of compliment to the older order the name of the official journal of Delta Tau Delta was changed from Crescent to " The Rainbow. " In February, 1922, Delta Sigma Delta, the local petitioning body, became Delta Alpha chapter of the national fraternity, after an extended pe- riod of petitioning. Prominent alumni of this early group Include such men as: Joseph Brandt, director of the University Press; Tully Nettleton, assistant editor of the Chris- tian Science Monitor; Lowell Ridings, South American geological authority; Dr. Elgin Groseclose, University faculty. Of the five fraternity men on President Roose- velt ' s Cabinet two are Delts. Other distinguished men from this chapter are: Savole Lottlnville, University Press; Charles Duffy, State Senator; Truman " Pinky " Tomlln, noted musician and actor; Edward Mills, of the Oklahoma City News; Dr. Tracy Powell, noted surgeon in Hollywood, California; John Alley, Instructor in French at Southwestern.

Its purpose is to incul- cate among its membership a finer spirit of loy- alty, activity and scholarship toward their Alma Mater, to develop the highest ideals of conduct and to promote a close fraternal bond through means of carefully selected associates. The policy of expansion is conservative and new chapters are admitted as they can be ab- sorbed and only upon the fulfillment of definite entrance requirements including faculty endorse- ment. The fraternity has had a rapid but healthy growth and at the present time has twenty-nine active chapters on the rolls of the national organ- ization. Total membership is estlmiated at around 3000. Phi Beta Delta has an Honor Roll to which those members, not national officers, are elected an- nually who render distinguished service to the fraternity. The badge Is diamond shaped and Is edged with pearls. In the center, which Is slightly raised, are the letters Phi Beta Delta, placed hori- zontally across the badge. The letters are in gold on a blue background. Above the letters ap- pears a five pointed star countersunk In gold into the badge. Below the letters appear two crossed keys in gold on a blue background. Sigma Beta Tau was organized as a petitioning body In 1921 and was installed as lota Chapter of Phi Beta Delta in 1922. Outstanding among the alumni members are: B. A. Botkin, University faculty member and rrtf oJi? ASLiM SAM ABRAMS President MRS.

In 1863, it was discovered at the time of the elections that Alpha Delta Phi and Psi Upsilon had taken two men each from Alpha Sigma Phi and that Delta Kappa Epsilon had taken thirty- four. All of these senior societies held meetings of their membership In Alpha Sigma Phi and ex- pelled the opposing group. As a result, the fac- ulty of the college stepped in and abolished Alpha Sigma Phi. Before the faculty could step In, however, the members of the order had done away with the records, rituals and paraphernalia of the frater- nity and continued to have meetings, elect men and initiate them, although all of these proceed- ings were extremely sub rosa, because of the fac- ulty edict. In 1864, the faculty relented, but forbade the resuming of the name, Alpha Sigma Phi, and Delta Beta Xi was organized with a very thin veneer over the older organization. The let- ter ' s badge merely had the Greek letters changed and the presiding officer of Delta Beta XI always wore a real Alpha Sigma Phi pin while conducting initiations. The local fraternity. Delta Kappa Rho, was granted a charter of Alpha Sigma Phi as Alpha Alpha chapter. In 1923. There are thirty-two chapters of the national fraternity with a total membership of approximately I 1,000. Prominent alumni of the local chapter Include: Brigadier General Charles E. McPherrin, prom- inent Oklahoma City attorney, who so ably defended the Greek organizations before ROBERT HENDERSON President MRS. C. T.

It was a concrete and permanent result of a friendship that had flourished since the elementary school days in the environs of one of the South ' s oldest towns. The purpose of the fraternity, as stated in the constitution, is to " promote friendship and mu- tual trust among its members, to uphold tradi- tions and ideals of the colleges where its chap- ters are located, to encourage excellence in scholarship, and to inculcate in its members the highest ideals of Christian manhood and good citizenship. " Membership may be conferred only by initiation. There are no honorary mem- bers. Pi Kappa Phi has the distinction of being the only national fraternity founded in the state of South Carolina, facing approximately thirty years of inimical legislation and influence in the state towards fraternities, during which time, at one period or another, the South Carolina chap- ters have been non-existent. With the restora- tion of Sigma chapter at the University of South Carolina in 1927 was marked the withdrawing of anti-fraternity legislation from the statutes of the state. There are 38 chapters active in the national fraternity and the membership is very near to 6000. The badge of the order is a diamond shaped emblem, bearing a scroll with the Greek capitals of the name across the shorter diagonal, with a five pointed star on a black field above the scroll and a figure of a student ' s lamp In gold below the scroll. ERVINE SWIFT President MRS. JULIET LAWTON Hostess PI Kappa, the petitioning body, was composed of twenty-five members, part of whom were members of the former chapter at Tulsa Univer- sity and this organization remained local for only one year, receiving a charter from the national organization on May 26, 1923. Among the better known alumni of the Okla- homa chapter are: Esthmer Skinner, oil operator; Dr. J. W. Robinson of the Wesley Hospital In Oklahoma City; Dick Pierce, reporter for the Daily Oklahoman.

What is regarded as the first meeting of the fraternity was held November 2, 1909, and this has been accepted by the fraternity as the date of its founding. While the fraternity was organized with a view to national expansion, no attempt was made to establish chapters until the spring of 1912, when chapters were formed at Massachusetts Agricul- tural College and the University of Pennsylvania. The latter chapter brought into the fraternity several men who took an immediate part in the policies of the fraternity and virtually dictated the administration of the fraternity until the laws of the fraternity were written and the ritual, in- signia and other essentials were adopted. Some of the locals chartered by Lambda Chi Alpha were chartered for the express purpose of petitioning the national group. Still other chap- ters were formed prior to the organization of the national fraternity. With the admission of the Toronto chapter, the fraternity became inter- national. The growth of the fraternity has been both consistent and substantial, as an unbroken roll of seventy-eight chapters indicates, with a member- ship of approximately 14,000. The badge is a pearl set crescent, with horns turned toward the left, and enclosing a mono- gram of the Greek letters of the fraternity. The Oklahoma chapter was the nineteenth na- tional fraternity to install a chapter on this cam- pus and the charter was given to the local, Sigma Phi, which was organized in 1923. Gamma-Rho Zeta chapter was installed on October 9, 1926. BILL PRIESTLEY President MRS. G. W. TAYLOR Hostess Alumni of prominence of the local chapter of Lambda Chi Alpha are: Dr. Lloyd Harris, member of the University faculty; Dr. Phil C. Ashby, Oklahoma City; A. P.

The parent chapter was fornned at Wllllanns Col- lege on November 4, 1834, and was variously known as the Social Fraternity, The Equitable Fraternity, and Ouden Adelon. This last was the chapter to adopt the name of Delta UpsHon and the present badge. The anti-secret societies were two classes of men; one whose only aim was to combat and If possible destroy the fraternities, and the other, who saw the advantages of the close union, zeal, mutual interest and fraternal sentiment of the new societies, and who wished to obtain these ad vantages without the features of secrecy, which seem to them objectionable. The anti-secret fraternities, with but few ex- ceptions, died or were amalgamated with what finally became Delta Upsilon. At first a confed- eration of Independent units known as the Anti- secret Confederation adopted a constitution in 1852 that made it a fraternity composed of chapters and having general fraternity officers. The motto, Dikala Upotheke, and the name Delta Upsilon, were in use many years before the for- mal adoption. In 1917 the constitution of the fraternity was amended so as to state legally what has always been morally true, that a man becoming a mem- ber of the fraternity by initiation, remained such to the time of his death. Members of the frater- nity are barred from membership in all societies represented In more than one Institution of learn- ing, with the exception of strictly honorary and professional societies. The badge of the fraternity Is a monogram of the Greek letters, with the Delta being placed over the Upsilon. f II JlJ, nil hTTii III n ll r III! H -rf--. WAYNE HECKLER President MRS. J. R.

It was recognized by the University authorities on October 13, 1890, and this date is celebrated as the founding of the fraternity. The actuating motive of the fraternity was to create an organization of a dis- tinctive homogeneity, the better to promote friendship, develop character, advance justice, and assist in obtaining for its members a sound education. The chapters at Northwestern, Chicago, West Virginia, New York Law School and Washington University surrendered their charters at various times because of their inability to meet the rigid requirements of the fraternity. War conditions caused the suspension of the Syracuse chapter due to the fact that every member enlisted In the army and none returned to take up their edu- cation. In the early years of the fraternity a majority of the members were engaged In the study of the law, in preparation therefor, or In the pursuit of cognate subjects, and, as a means of tighten- ing the bonds among Its members more securely, membership In other societies. Including profes- sional fraternities, was prohibited. Changing conditions of fraternities and In the colleges and universities caused this ban to be removed, how- ever, and no restrictions of that caliber still remain. Memorial Day for deceased members Is May I of each year and Founder ' s Day Is observed throughout the fraternity on October 13. The badge Is a monogram of the two Greek GLENN OKERSON President MRS. J. E. POWER Hostess letters of the name, with the Delta superimposed upon the Chi. The local petitioning body was known as Kappa Theta and became the thirty-sixth chapter of the national fraternity. It was installed on this campus In 1927 on May 27th. Among the more prominent alumni members of the local chapter of Delta Chi are: Ray Kimball, former General Manager of Pub- lications at the University; Peter S. Johnson, Tulsa oil operator; Tom Anglin, former state senator from hlold- envllle. Delta Chl ' s who are active on the campus include: Lunsford Livingston, President of Jazz hlounds, and a member of Congress Literary Society, the League of Young Democrats, and the Interfrater- nlty Council.

The original constitution of the parent chapte provided for branch societies but It was not for over two years that the Beta chapter of the or- ganization was established at Princeton. In 1888 It established In the University of Pennsylvania a prize In honor of the founder of the fraternity, Sannuel Brown Wylle Mitchell, to be given to that member of the sophomore class who attains the highest mark In English literature. This was probably the first scholastic prize of- fered by a fraternity in any American college. There are thirty-eight active chapters of the national fraternity with a membership of approxi- mately 12,000. Until 1856 new chapters were created by the action of Alpha chapter alone and for thirteen years the fraternity ' s affairs were in its hands. At the present time the convention of the frater- nity Is the governing board and during the time when It Is not in session, an executive board ap- pointed by the fraternity in convention, governs from headquarters In Philadelphia. The badge Is a gold Maltese cross with black enameled border, displaying a skull and crossed bones in the center. In the upper arm of the cross Is a six pointed star and In the other arm are the Greek capitals of the name. Jeweling of the badge Is prohibited, as is also Its use except AUSTIN RITTENHOUSE President as an official sign of membership to be worn as a pin. Kappa Epsilon was organized in September, 1923, for the purpose of petitioning Phi Kappa Sigma fraternity and became an active chapter of the national organization on February 22, 1929. Well-known alumni of the local chapter include: John Quilty, Oklahoma City attorney; Albert Kulp, winner of a hiarvard scholarship; John Cole, also an Oklahoma City attorney. Phi Kappa Sigs In University activities Include: Bill Pansze, a letterman In football and track and Honorary Captain of the 1933 football team, a member of Skeleton Key and a former member of the Athletic Council, and former President of the chapter. Frank McCann, a member of the Ramblers dance orchestra, a Ruf-Nek, and a member of Scabbard and Blade and of Skeleton Key. Austin Rittenhouse, President of the chapter, and member of the Derby Club.

Its purpose is pri- marily to bring the students Into brotherly rela- tionship; to pronnote the spirit of good fellow- ship; to encourage the attainment of a high scholarship standing, and to offer each and every member the training and environment which characterizes the university or college man. There are eight active chapters of the national organization with an approximate membership of MOO. The government of the fraternity is vested in a supreme executive committee of four members during the period between meetings of its na- tional conventions. The badge is a shield displaying upon a black enameled face the Greek capitals, Theta Kappa Phi, in gold over a golden heart. All this is mounted on a gold shield bordered with crown set pearls, and four rubies in the form of a cross. The local fraternity, Delta Phi Epsilon, was founded at the University of Oklahoma in Sep- tember, 1930. It was an outgrowth of the Co- lumbia Club, organized in 1927, and was, at the time of its inception, the only local fraternity on the campus. The purpose of the order was stated ROBERT LANUfcRb Mkb. (_, J. LUVt to be an organization of Catholic men chartered " to promote social and intellectual intercourse among its members, to identify students and alumni more closely with their college and to cultivate a spirit of loyalty to their Alma Mater. " Delta Phi Epsilon received a charter from Theta Kappa Phi national fraternity in the spring of 1934. Prominent Theta Kappa Phis who are inter- ested in the activities of the University Include: Charles Cone, President of the Newman Club, member of the Engineer ' s Club, member of the American Society of Civil Engineers, member of Ruf-Neks, member of St. Pat ' s Council.

The University ' s repeated success in winning the All-Sports Cham- pionship of the Conference is a tribute to the coaching staff.

BRUCE DRAKE Basketball Assistant FOOTBALL By REX CHANEY " This Is OUahoma ' s Year! ' That ' s what they were saying of the Sooner football team early in September. Why shouldn ' t a team that had twenty-one returning lettermen and a host of sopho- mores that would bring a smile to any coach ' s face literally burn up the league? From flank to flank, frontback to tailback, the Sooners had power, they had said. There was Jack Harris, Jeff Coker, Mutt Miller and John Miskovsky, a quartet of fine ends, that would be bolstered by a sophomore crew that contained such luminaries as Harry Allen, Ralph Brown and R. A. Cox. And how could the tackles be weak, with Cash Gentry said to be in shape after a long siege of illness. Dub Wheeler, Dewey Tennyson and George Parrish, all veter- ans, returning, and a couple of likely looking sopho- mores. Ferd Ellsworth and Harold Harmon, to act as reserves? Guards? Certainly. There was James " Red " Stacy destined to become one of the greatest guards Okla- homa has produced; Kenneth Little, shifted to guard to fill up the yawning gap left by the graduation of Ellis Bashara: Wesley Beck, a reserve in the preceding cam- paign: Harry Ellis, an end who was also shifted to guard to build up strength thru the center of the line: Clay Chiles, who might be developed: and some bright sopho- more material — Connie Ahrens, who came to Sooner- land with a great reputation as a high school player: Mike Montgomery, whose very appearance brought a FRANCIS McDANNALD CONKRIGHT MILLER Paq 327 flicker of a smile across the faces of Lewie Hardage and John " Bo " Rowland: Bill Pricke+t and Cal hlubbard, a pair that might be developed by careful handling and long training. Center was worrying nobody. Morris McDannald, a letterman, was back. There was Mickey Parks, 200 pounds of beef from Shawnee, said to be the finest center prospect in years. And there was William " Red " Conk- right, six feet, one inch of fight, and a hustler if there ever was one. hiow about the backs? Twas said that there were some who could carry the mail. There was Beede Long, one of the greatest line-backers ever to grace the turf of Owen field, and a blocker who could block; Ben Poynor, not so sensational in the preceding campaign but a player who was to become one of the best ball- luggers in the Big Six; Nig Robertson, a crazy-legged flash in the open field; Rob Robison, a dependable fullback; Art Pansze, honorary captain and a fighter who was seriously handicapped by injuries; Delmar Stein- bock, who brought the fans to their feet time and again with his sensational punt returning; Karey Fuqua, a smart quarterback and a driver; and a sparkling band of sopho- mores, including Joe Meyer, Jelly Ragan, Mac Boring, Pat Page and Vivian Nemecek. Surely this was Oklahoma ' s year. But the experts hadn ' t counted on Gentry ' s prolonged illness, the severe blow suffered thru the graduation of Bob Dunlap, injuries to Poynor, Long, Pansze, Wheeler and Francis at vital times, and various other factors that were overlooked in the pre-season enthusiasm. A short summary of the season will tell the story, how the Sooners got some breaks and lost some, how they staged brilliant comebacks after unmistakable letdowns, how they worked with precision and power at times and played loosely and raggedly at others. COX HARRIS COKER HUBBARD Page 323 First there came the Gentlemen from Louisiana. Cen- tenary, a team that boasted 24 consecutive victories and a football team that was undeniably strong. The Sooners showed a good defense — one good enough to win the ball game by 7 to — but the offense refused to click. Oklahoma capitalized on its lone scoring oppor- tunity when Coker recovered a blocked punt behind the goal line, one that Harris had crashed into with his face. Up jumped Texas and a smashing 19-to-O defeat for Oklahoma on a day that was fit for nothing but ducks. The Longhorns were " hot, " while the Sooners were " frigid. " It was Texas ' game from start to finish, and a disappointed band of Sooner followers came home from Dallas. October 20, when the Nebraska Cornhuskers came to town, was to see an entirely different Oklahoma team from the one that performed at Texas. The Sooners woke up and for three quarters a somewhat bewildered Nebraska team watched Oklahoma do everything but score. The Sooners were just six inches from the Husker goal as the gun ended the Trst half. Steinbeck stole the show that day. directing the offense like a master and returning punts with dazzling brilliance. This also was the day that Ben Poynor started the smashing tactics that were to win him an all-conference berth and make him the kind of a fullback that Oklahoma fans had been crying for. Altho they lost, 6 to 0. the Sooners made 1 1 first downs to 10 for Nebraska and staged a come- back from the Texas debacle that will live long in the memories of Soonerland. Fired up from the game with Nebraska, Oklahoma went up to Oread to meet Coach Adrian LIndsey ' s Kansas Jayhawks, a team that wasn ' t a title threat but one that was capable of giving any eleven in the con- ference a battle on any given day. After a defensive battle that saw both teams play some good football and some ragged football, the game ended in a 7-to-7 deadlock. The Sooners tallied first, on a 40-yard gallop by Poynor. Kansas came back with a rush to score on ELLSWORTH LITTLE ROBERTSON TACY Paq 324 a pass, and fhe game wenf Into the books as a rather disheartening tie. Frank Carideo didn ' t produce a football team in his three years at Missouri, and the one that he showed I 1 ,000 fans here on hlomecoming day was no exception. The Sooners unleashed all of their pent-up energy, and they crushed Missouri, 33 to 0, the largest score com- piled by either team in a single game since the Tiger- Sooner rivalry began back in 1902. This was Robertson ' s day, and he came to the front in no uncertain manner. He cracked the line, circled the end, blocked, passed and called signals — a day ' s work on any man ' s foot- ball team. Poynor again played a whale of a game, ploughing the line and smashing off tackle with a ven- geance. The blockers were mowing down the tacklers like so many tenpins. Truly, it was a great hlomecoming. Next the Iowa State Cyclones breezed into Norman with the best football team that the lowans had boasted in years. But the Sooners had one of their days on that occasion, and the Cyclones limped out on the short end of a 12-to-O verdict. Oklahoma struck twice in the first quarter, and the scoring was over. For the next three quarters Coach George Veenker ' s eleven tried every trick in its bag to pull the game out of the fire, but the passes fell harmlessly to the ground, and the running game was stopped cold. The Sooners had scored on Poynor ' s line smash and Miskovsky ' s touchdown canter after Brown had blocked a punt. This set the stage for the great battle between Coach Lynn Waldorf ' s Kansas State champions and a fighting Oklahoma team. The Sooners fought the Wildcats every inch of the way, but finally dropped an 8-to-7 decision. The game was lost on a questionable safety when the officials ruled Gentry was tackled behind his own goal line in the second quarter. The Wildcats capitalized on the great ball-carrying of Sophomore Leo Ayres and Senior Dick Armstrong. It was in this game that Francis carried much of the fight for Oklahoma, after both Long and Poynor had been forced to retire from the game with severe injuries. It was Francis ' pass to Harris LONG TENNYSON NEMECEK HEWES Page 325 that scored for the Sooners. The lone weakness of Oklahonr a in that ganne was the ralher weak pass defense. On the bright Saturday afternoon of November 24 the Sooners marched onto Lewis field at Stillwater, hungry for an Aggie scalp after six lean years. But it wasn ' t In the cards for Oklahoma to break the Aggie jinx that day. and the game ended in a scoreless tie. The Sooners put the ball everywhere but across the double-marker, going inside the Cowboy 15-yard line three times and threatening to score thruout the first three quarters. Once Francis got off on a long jaunt that looked like a certain touchdown, and another time Miskovsky took Harris ' lateral pass and appeared headed for pay dirt, but both times Cowboy tacklers seemed to come out of nowhere and drag the unfortunate Sooners down. Oklahoma sorely missed Poynor ' s smash- ing that day. the hefty fullback being out with a hip injury. On Thanksgiving the Sooners journeyed to George Washington. Washington, D. C to attempt to better the 7-to-7 tie they had played the Colonials two years before. But after an hour of sloshing and sliding in the mud the George Washington eleven had won a 3-to-O game, the result of a field goal by Harry Deming late In the first half. Once Page blocked a punt and Coker grabbed it and headed for the goal, but he was dragged down on the 9-yard line, from where the Sooners were unable to score. Another time Steinbock grabbed a punt out of the air and streaked across the last marker, but officials ruled that he had stepped out of bounds and called the play back. And that ' s that. That gave Oklahoma three victories. four losses and two ties for a season ' s record. Next year with a number of sophomore stars, com- bined with the 23 returning lettermen. the Sooners hope to finish nearer the top than their third-place tie with Kansas this year. Show em, Oklahoma! ROBISON STEINBOCK FUQUA WHEELER GENTRY Page 32fr Left to right: Lochner, Boyd, Cleveland, McGInnIs, Butler, Coach Jacobs. CROSS COUNTRY Oklahoma two-milers, with second place in the con- ference and five dual victories against one defeat, was one of the most successful Sooner teams of the year. Lanky Floyd Lochner, Oklahoma ' s premier distance man, showed the field to the tape in every race, winding up the season by splashing through a field of mud and melted snow to capture individual honors at the Big Six meet at Lawrence, Kansas. An evenly balanced squad from Kansas State edged out Oklahoma runners in the team average at the con- ference meet, however, the Sooners placing second. Elwood Cleveland pushed Lochner to his speediest throughout the season, the pair usually finishing one-two with Denzll Boyd, Bob Butler, Clyde McSinnis, and hienry Janz pounding in with enough points to secure the match. The Sooners began the season with two races in as many days, stopping off at Denton, Texas, for a dual with the Denton Teachers while on their way to meet the University of Texas runners between halves of the Oklahoma-Texas game at Dallas. They won both, handily, scoring 40 points to the Denton Teachers ' 9 and 32 points to Longhorns ' 23. The Sooners competed with the Oklahoma Aggies and the Central State Teachers In a triangular meet In their Initial home appearance and were overwhelmingly vic- torious counting 39 points to the Cowboys 15 and Central ' s single marker. The Denton Teachers were slightly more successful in their challenge when they visited Oklahoma for a return match but were again defeated, this time 37 to 15. Glenn Dawson, a former Sooner distance star, was guest runner In the dual but was unable to match the stride of the tireless Lochner, finishing in runnerup posi- tion. Lochner breasted the tape in 9:48.8, his best time of the year, in beating out his predecessor. Oklahoma ' s string of victories was snapped by the Kansas Aggie team in the final dual match of the year, a bare 3 points separating victor and vanquished, the Wildcats scoring 29 points to the Sooners 26. Five men were awarded letters at the end of the season — Lochner, Cleveland, Boyd, Butler and McGInnis. Lochner was selected by his teammates as the honorary captain for the year. None of the five lettermen will be lost by graduation. Page 327 BASKETBALL The 1935 Sooner caging quintet flashed comet-like across the Big Six heavens, brilliant when it first appeared in the conference sky and, though it ever threatened to flame anew, fading as it reached the season ' s horizon. A strenuous schedule of 16 games within the confer- ence with its long road trips and two-night stands took its toll on Coach Hugh McDermott ' s green squad and limited reserves as the season advanced. A mutual agreement among the Big Six athletic com- mittee brought about a situation where Oklahoma, Kansas, Kansas State, and Missouri played 16 conference games and allowed Iowa State and Nebraska to play only ten. It had been the custom for the Sooners, Tigers, and Jayhawks to play a two-game series, one a conference and one a non-conference game, when they visited each other. This arrangement permitted the respective schools to use their regulars sparingly and the reserves much in the non-conference games and to pit their first strings against each other in the conference tilts. Under the new Big Six ruling both games of the two- game series were to be counted in the conference stand- ings, forcing the coaches to play their regulars both nights in their attempts to stay in the conference run- ning. Coach Hugh McDermott opened pre-season practice sessions with one veteran and four lettermen and with this quintet as a nucleus produced the squad that was destined to burn up the league in the first half of their schedule only to be consumed by their own flame. The veteran, Omar " Bud " Browning, who was to be the first man to gain all-Big Six honors three times, was the spearhead of the Sooner attack and the terror of opposing guards. The four lettermen — Pudge Cobb, Fudge Warren Don Hays, and Stanley Tyler — saw regular service all year, along with three sophomores, Tee Connelly, Herman " Red " Nelson and Don Gunning. Rudolph Tone, a two-year squadman. and John Remy a sophomore guard, were the outstanding reserve mem- bers of the squad. The Sooners opened in the Fleldhouse against a flashy Oklahoma Aggie squad and eked out a one point victory when Red Nelson tipped one off the backboard into the basket in the waning seconds of an overtime period. A visit to Aggieland didn ' t prove so successful and the Sooners went into their Big Six schedule with one game won and one lost. Winning three for four from the Kansas Aggies, three for four from Missouri, splitting two games with Neb- raska, and dropping two to Iowa State, who won the championship, the McDermott-men arrived at the last game of the season, with Kansas, definitely in third place. Paqt 328 Kansas won but the Sooner fans did not lose. Bud Browning was playing his last game for Okla- homa and the Enid hotshot put on the greatest scor- ing spree ever witnessed in the Fieldhouse. hHis 27 points that night were 3 more than the former Big Six record for a single game. " Bud " was the third highest scorer in the conference, was named all-Big Six guard for the third consecutive year, and elected honorary captain of the Sooner squad by his team- mates. He was later named as a member of the All- American. Tyler, HHays, and Cobb wound up their collegiate basketball careers along with Browning. Despite the splendid floor and backboard work of Red Nelson, it was Tee Connelly who stood out among the new men of the team, his ability to hit the basket from almost any position on the court and his tenacity on the defense gaining him a forward berth on the second all-Big Six team.

This Sooner nine prowled from Columbia, Missouri to Fort Worth, Texas, seeking whom It might devour and usually got a good meal, its big bats ringing out victory in 12 of the 15 games played within the State Collegiate and Big Six conferences. Yet it finished up just short of winning pennants in both races. Supporting the masterful hurling of Bill Winford, the Meeker Kid who led state pitchers with five victories and no defeats, and Travis " Ace " Hlnson. his running mate, Coach L. E. " Jap " Haskell ' s band of sluggers blasted their way out front in the dash for the State Collegiate title only to falter In the 8th Inning of the championship-deciding game with the Oklahoma City Goldbugs, letting the flag slip through their gloves on a rain-soaked home diamond. Both the Sooners and the Goldbugs had suffered one loss In the state league when the Oklahoma City team came to Norman for the final and fatal 2-game series. The Sooners edged out a 6 to 5 victory In the opening game to take the undisputed conference lead and were well on their way to sewing up the buntin g In the final tilt when the rain gods saw fit to intervene — and disas- trously. It was the 8th Inning. The Sooners seemed secure with the big end of a 9 to 4 score. Hlnson, the projec- tlllng half of the Sooner battery, was in fine form. The sky but slightly overcast during the early innings became sullen and threatening. A cool wind swept up out of Elvyn Claunch ' s rightfield position engulfing the diamond. A raindrop flicked Its impression in the film of dust that covered the home-plate as the first Goldbug came to the bat. A steady downpour followed and a slippery ball and a slippery turf combined to hand the Goldbugs 8 runs, the game and the championship. The Iowa State Cyclones with a strenuous schedule of one game within the conference, which they won, blocked Sooner claims to the unofficial Big Six championship though Oklahoma played six conference games, losing but one. After taking two for three from Missouri in the Tigers ' own back yard Oklahoma played impolite host to the STOUP COBB STEINBOCK PATTERSON AMEND MEYERS Paq 330 Kansas Aggie Wildcats, refusing to lose even one in a 3-game series. But the Cyclone ' s lone victory over Nebraska still stood and Coach hlaskell ' s outfit had to be content with second place within the Big Six. Thus were spiked the championship hopes of a coura- geous team that never stopped taking their cut until the last man was out in the ninth. But never were spiked their big guns. The timely and consistent hitting of Roy Myers, center- fielder deluxe, and Bill Brakebill, rightflelder dependable, was as potent and remarkable as the pitching perform- ances of hiinson and Winford. Led by these two dead-eye batsmen, Sooners Pudge Cobb, Delmar Steinbock, Elvyn Claunch, Spicy Fulps, Gordon Clarke, Billy Amend, Sid Patterson, hiarry Aggers, Red hiardwick, Adolph Stoup, and Alvin Turner, made up as formidable aggregation of sluggers as ever came out of Soonerland. Reminiscences of a fan — the staccatoed shouts of encouragement from Delmar Steinbock as he crouched behind the plate — the ease with which left-handed Gordon Clarke took the tosses to first — Billy Amend ' s capable work at shortstop and Alvin Turner ' s equally capable handling of the " hot corner.

The speedy legs of Whit Cox and Bart Ward, the space-eating stride of Floyd Lochner, the high-stepping of Doug Barham and the catapulting arm of Albert Gllles. aided by creditable performances by Joel Cunningham, Loyett Burk, Henry Janz, Denzll Boyd, Clyde McGlnnis, Bill Thompson, Tom Slmms, Jack hiarrls, Jeff Coker, and Jack Clark, gave Coach John Jacobs a versatile combi- nation that rang up Sooner colors in the win, place, or show position In every meet entered. Warming up to the season at the Southwestern Expo- sition track and field meet at Fort Worth the Sooners faced all Texas and were paced only by the University of Texas. First places by Lochner, Ward, and Barham alongside numerous seconds by their teammates tallied 43 points for Oklahoma, only I I points behind the win- ner. Barham ' s mark of 6 feet 4 Inches In the high jump established a new record for the meet. In their next two starts, the Tulsa A. A. U. Invitation meet and Soonerland ' s own amateur carnival, the Soon- ers emerged victors. Lochner, Ward and Barham again furnished the blue ribbon points in the Tulsa meet and in the amateur show Cox, Gilles. and Slmms stepped up to first place positions to rocket the Sooners to their highest meet score of the season, a total of 59% points. Lochner ' s time of 4 minutes 23.2 seconds in the mile run, Gllles ' toss of 47 feet. 8 ' 4 Inches In the shot put, and Slmms ' 44 feet, 10 ' ? inches in the hop, step and jump were all record breakers. As the season progressed, Oklahoma finished third in the Big Six meet at Lincoln, Nebraska. At the Big Six meet Ward continued his blue ribbon performances by winning the 440-yard dash. Other Sooner first-place winners were Gllles, who registered in the discus, and Barham, who tied for first in the high jump. Perhaps the most outstanding individual feat of the season was Doug Barham ' s leap of 6 feet, 6 ' 4 inches as the Sooners won handily from the Oklahoma Aggies in their annual dual match. The height was a new record for Sooner high jumpers, the best leap ever made in Oklo- Paqo }32 homa, and gained Barham an Invitation to the national intercollegiate meet in Los Angeles. Lochner also drew a bid to the national meet bv virtue of his performance In the Aggie dual meet. The cotton-headed lad from Agra ranked along with Ward and Barham as Jacobs ' most consistent point win- ners but up until the Aggie dual he hadn ' t officially met the national Intercollegiate requirement for the two-mile, his favorite event. But with only a teammate, Elwood Cleveland, to push him, Lochner was well under the 9:50 limit as he scampered home. Although Al Gilles was equally proficient in the discus and shot put, it was his prowess as a shotputter that sent him to the west coast and the national meet along with Barham and Lochner, his record breaking stunt in the amateur show winning him the invitation. When Bart Ward came to the university he was hailed as a great quarter-mller. This season developed that he was also a great broadjumper which he proved by win- ning that event consistently with leaps over 24 feet, regis- tering his best distance in the Southwestern Exposition meet when he hurdled 24 feet, 3 ' 2 Inches of turf. It was also discovered that he could run opponents Into the ground in almost any part of his pet distance, 440 yards, and he competed regularly and effectively In the 100- yard and 220-yard dashes, then took his turn In the relays, usually running the anchor lap. Dashman Whit Cox met stiff competition wherever he went but the lithe Tulsan always managed to corner sprint points that added to the Sooners ' chances to win. Tom SImms, Jack Clark, and Loyett Burk pushed Ward for the " iron man " honors, SImms running the hurdles, broadjumplng and highjumping, while Clark and Burk teamed with Simms in taking care of the Sooner hurdling activities and assisted Joel Cunningham in the pole vault. Jacobs ' relay combinations were up to par with Clyde McGInnis, Jeff Coker, Bill Thompson, and hHenry Janz assisting Cox, Ward, Lochner, and Denzil Boyd, Sooner star half-miler, in passing the baton around the track. Reminiscences of a fan — game Lorls Moody, crack miler and half-miler, who refused to let a badly broken leg keep him off the track — footballer Jack Harris ' smoothness over a hurdle and the game leg which kept him from doing bigger and better things — Heinle Janz whose short legs but stout heart gained the admiration of onlookers and the respect of his opponents — and lanky Loyett Burk whose events were always being called simultaneously.

POLO The Sooner polo team easily conquered all " Big Six " opposition during the past season by winning all their games but two. They divided contests with both the crack Oklahoma Military Academy squad and the New Mexico Military In- stitute four, making the past season a very suc- cessful one and proving them to be one of the Southwest ' s strongest teams. Tom Walsh made the best individual scoring record with a total of 37 goals. He was followed by Kay Garnett with a total of 23. Mack hlumphreys, Gordon Watts, hHarold Watters and Stratford Duke all followed closely behind these two leaders in number of goals scored. The team ' s smashing polo triumphs were large- ly due to the able coaching of Captain George R. Hayman. Future prospects look even brighter with the flashing play of Tom Walsh at number one and burly Stratford Duke ' s brilliant defe nsive work at number four position. New prospects coming up will provide a well balanced team for next year. Much credit for the showing of the Sooners must be given to Captain Ivan D. Yeaton, who handled the conditioning and care of the ponies used by the team during the season and their care during the winter months until time for spring games. The Sooner team has been Invited to partici- pate in the National Collegiate Tournament to be held in June.

DeMuth, the University pistol team has continued to over- come all opposition just as it did during the four years that It was coached by Captain Ivan D. Yeaton. For the fifth consecutive year the Sooners won the National R. O. T. C. Champion- ship and proved themselves to be one of the finest college teams in the United States. The team holds more Southwestern, individual state and National Championships than any other college team in the country. During the past five years it has collected 25 cups and other trophies and the members of the team have won more than 200 medals for first, second and third places in individual competition at the various meets which they attend annually. On this year ' s team were Mark Cox, hlomer Blake, Bill Bray, Phil Newkumet, Frank Newkumet, Nash Truss and F. C. hlirdler. Of this group only Cox and Blake will be lost by graduation. The trophies shown with the team in the pic- ture above are, left to right: the Charles Askins, Jr., Trophy for Rapid Fire, won by Cox; the hHarry L. Wilson Cup for Slow Fire, won by Jack Louthan, a former member of the team; the Po- lice Pistol Team Trophy, won by the University team; the Target Pistol Team Trophy, won by the team for the past three years; the National R.

Pinned to the cards at the front of the table are part of the medals held by members of the pres- ent team. Most of these medals belong to Cox, who was the consistently high man of the team during the past year. As is the case with polo, the University owes its chance to have a pistol team to the co-oper- ation of the Military Department and the officers of the R. O. T. C. Besides the excellent coach- ing which is given without charge, the R. O. T. C. provides both guns and ammunition for the team and bears all of its expenses.

Oklahoma began the wrestling season with an easy vic- tory over the Northwestern Teachers College, then in three one-night stands conquered the Big Six teams of Kansas State, Iowa State, and Missouri. In these four matches they did not lose a single bout except by forfeit. This victory march was halted by a formidabb Okla- homa Aggie squad and losses to the Southwestern and Central teachers followed.

Two dual matches, one with the Tahlequah Teachers which the Sooners won and one with the Oklahoma Ag- gies which they lost, preceded their entrance in the na- tional intercollegiate at Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Taking only four of his nine-man team, the Sooner mentor did what no other coach had been able to do before with a half-size squad — won runnerup honors in competition against the best tusslers in the nation. Martin, already a national champion in the 135-pound division, went up 10 pounds to take the belt in the 145- pound division, while Sisney succeeded him at 135 pounds.

TENNIS Sooner tennis aces — Albert Upsher, Albert Rollins, Jimmy Cochran, Norman Weir, and Don Miller — lost but one dual match in five and in addition annexed the Big Six crown at Lincoln, Nebraska. Upsher and Rollins carried Sooner colors into the Big Six meet and emerged from the fray lugging the confer- ence championship cup between them. Rollins was a semi-finalist and Upsher a finalist in the singles tournament and the two teamed together to walk away with the doubles, their to tal points edging out Kan- sas and Nebraska. Oklahoma scored five points to four for Kansas and three for Nebraska. After dropping the season ' s opening match to the University of Texas, 0-6, Coach John O. Moseley ' s hard- driving netmen came back to tie Southern Methodist University, 3-3, got the feel of their racquets to down both the Central State Teachers and Southeastern Teach- ers by scores of 4-2, and then reached their peak of the season, dusting off the Oklahoma Aggies with a barrage of lobs and backhands, winning every match and all but fwo sets. Not one of the five men was lost by graduation. GOLF The state collegiate golfing crown still reposed firmly on the head of the inimitable stylist, Walter Emery, as Sooner golfers easily retained their state championship. Emery, followed in order by teammates Arthur St. John, Harry Gandy, Maurice Hankinson, and Ray War- wick, led a host of state golfers over Oklahoma City ' s Woodlawn course, and was three up on old man par when the 54 holes of competition were completed. Emery ' s card of 213 was 9 better than that of St. John, who finished second. Harry Gandy was third in the meet with a score of 225 and Maurice Hankinson and Ray War- wick tied for fourth position with 226 shots apiece. In the team contest. Emery, Hankinson, St. John, and Gandy, Sooner No. I quartet, were first while a second Sooner team composed of Warwick, Bob Long, Billy Simpson and Harry Lewis finished next.

It is never done knowingly. IDIOTORIALS We present for your approval a new magazine, SATIRE, which we hope takes a dig at everyone. Its purpose is simple. Poking fun at everyone and everything is an old Soonerland custom and through the pages of this magazine we hope to accomplish this end. It has taken a helluva lot of work to think up all the dope that is scat- tered through the pages, but if you, dear reader, have some fun out of seeing the clay feet of your campus idols, then all is not in vain. By the by, when you glance through the pages, take a look at the advertisements included. The success of any publication depends, in a large measure, on its advertisers. Those who have placed ads in the SOONER are responsible for any success which the book may receive. (Are you listening, advertisers?) Now that we have handed out the laurel wreaths, let ' s get down to the dirt. The Oklahoma Daily has continued to put out the daily blah of the cam- pus in fine style. Wilson Brown has done all he could to make it a scandal sheet and Dale Clark has griped about everything but life still goes on. The Whirlwind keeps on getting lousier and lousier. We ought to hold a contest and give a solid brass dish- rag to the guy who can think up ten good reasons for its existence. Won- der what they would do if all the other humor (?) magazines would suddenly quit sending exchanges. The SOONER (God bless us, every one) is really the only publication of merit. You really ought to be darn thankful that we can ' t think up any more circulation drive masterpieces. And all the staff turned out en masse for the pictures. The Men ' s Council is still with us. Campbell, Woodruff and proxies con- tinued to hold meetings regularly. Verily, we could go on at great length about thissa and thatta but read on MacDuff, read on. Can you take it? — JR. As we go to press with our new magazine, we wish to make known to our readers and prospective cus- tomers and to the public at large that we are entirely impartial on all controversial questions of interest on the campus of the University of Okla- homa except that we are whole- hearted supporters of the Adminis- tration Party, we are definitely op- posed to the " no-date " rule, we favor compulsory military training (for the other fellow), and we op- pose any change in the present sys- tem of fraternity rushing. We welcome any comment or criticism on our publication and assure you that any complaints ad- dressed to Johnny will be promptly referred to Jimmle and those ad- dressed to Jimmle will be sent to Johnny. If you ever catch us to- gether we will blame everything on to next year ' s editor. Please bear in mind that if no one is offended in a magazine of this nature the maga- zine is a failure, and In that case we will be offended. In our efforts to please the general public we have striven to give the greatest possible notice to those who have requested that their names not be mentioned — we knew all the time that they were just trying to get a little free publicity. — JH.

Juliusio Einhornelli, premier operatic star, who recently played an important part in the excerpts from famous operas which played to capacity crowds in the metropolis of Oklahoma City was interviewed by the Editor of Satire the other day. Mr. Einhornelli said that he attributed his im- mediate success to his long training at the Uni- versity. Einhornelli said particularly that his ex- perience in the Men ' s Council enabled him to hold his own in the impromptu hog calling the opera stars were wont to indulge in at a mo- ment ' s notice. Einhornelli told the Editor that temperament was not present during the opera and that the stars got on just as turtle doves might, had they the inclination to follow a career as opera singers. He confessed however that he had acquired a goodly stock of temperament of varying shades from Jo Landsittel, campus dramatic star. In case the prima donnas started anything. Modestly, our budding menace to Tibbett, Bentonelli and others, refused to take any of the success upon his own shoulders and said that all credit should go to those other comrades of his who pushed him forward on his operatic career. " You may say, however, that since I have at various times played the leading role in 15 cam- pus productions, I feel that I am capable of tak- ing over any role and doing a very creditable job of it, " Einhornelli stated. [Editor ' s note. Mr. Einhornelli was a member of the mob scene in the operas and has brought much fame and glory to the University and envi- rons by his distinguished bearing in the operas.] COMPLIMENTS OF Iho CAMPUS Ihentre ENTERTAINMENT CENTER OF O.

TEXT BOOKS SCHOOL SUPPLIES BOOKS OF GENERAL INTEREST UNIVERSITY BOOK EXCHANGE IN THE UNION Page 362 SCHOOL OF NATURAL GAS ENGINEERING UNIVERSITY OF OKLAHOMA THE school of natural gas engineering of the University of Oklahoma was the first school of its kind to be organized in the world. It is the youngest of the ten professional engineering schools in the college of engineering. The curriculum, which was approved by men of the industry in conference with members of the faculty, was adopted by the faculty in March, 1933; and in September of the same year students were officially enrolled. Men in all phases of work dealing with problems in natural gas engineering have long realized the necessity of having specially trained men capable of overcoming the obstacles that confront the industry. The school of natural gas engineering of the University of Oklahoma can boast of one of the two fellowships sponsored by the American Gas Association. Each year the A. G. A. sends a man to the University to take graduate work In natural gas engineering with the requirement that his thesis repre- sent an Important piece of research pertinent to the natural gas industry. Mr. K. J. Sonney, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, is the holder of the fellowship this year. His research problem is " A Study of the Thermo- dynamics of Gas Regulator Freeze-ups. " Mr. Sonney is being ably assisted by Mr. J. W. Bowman. The work is being done under the direction of Dr. R. L. Huntington. A major part of the research will be carried on in the Oklahoma City field; however, laboratory tests are made on all equipment to ascertain definitely whether it is properly designed and whether it will give the desired results. The indications are that another industrial fellowship will be sponsored by persons directly interested in a combination electric operated gas-fired air conditioning units. Air conditioning will soon play an Impor- tant part In the life of everyone and it is the thought of many gas engineers that units to air condition homes and office buildings can be designed along the same principles as the gas refrigerator. It Is proposed an experimentation of this nature will be carried out at the University of Oklahoma. The Southwestern gas measurement short course, held annually at the University of Oklahoma, is sponsored directly by the school of natural gas engineering.

BOB ELLIS Dear Editor: Rumors have reached my pink shell-like ears that the two-bit tax on stags which was inaugu- rated at the " FREE " dansants sponsored by the Board of Governors of the Student Union Asso- ciation, was a little graft conceived by me in order to add to my rapidly growing list of vari- ous and sundry pecuniary enjoyments. This, sir, is a prevaricated falsehood and I rise to dispute the point with vehemence. This so- called graft was not conceived by me alone and instead of getting the lion ' s share of the monies collected, I am forced to take as my share a measly 40%. Perhaps this explanation of the matter will end the vicious scandal which has dared to raise Its Paq« 364 ugly head and threaten the pure and unsullied reputation of the President of the Men ' s Coun- cil whose actions should be, and are, above re- proach. I am thinking of calling a student election for an expression of opinion on the matter and you may rest assured that the matter will be brought to the attention of the Administrative Council. I remain, sir, Your Obedient Servant, LOUIS WOODRUFF, President of the Men ' s Council To the Editors: You are to be congratulated on the publica- tion of your new magazine and I sincerely hope that it is a continued success. Especially fine is the art work of the new issue and the cover is a masterpiece of finesse and touch by an artist of no mean ability. Whatever you pay this artist for his work cannot possibly be sufficient, hie is on a plane with those artists of Esquire, Vogue, Whiz Bang and La Vie Parls- ienne. FHere ' s hoping that you continue to give us more of this man ' s work. Words fail me when I try to describe the thrill I get when I see his pictures. May this boost be of benefit to him. Sincerely, ED ASHTON. To the Editors, Publishers, Copy Boys, etc.; Satire Magazine, Press Building. Mugs: Perhaps you can enlighten me as to why you are entering Into the field of humorous magazine publications when this campus already has one of the finest, cleanest, most humorous, delightful, colossal, stupendous magazines ever known by man or beast.

CONGRATULATIONS TO THE SCHOOL OF PHARMACY AND THE CLASS OF 1935 SCHOOL OF PHARMACY BUILDING Pharmacy is defined, very briefly, as the science of preparing and dispensing medi- cine. The pharmacist has a position of sacred trust in his community. A slight error might mean the death of an innocent sufferer. In order that the health of this state, and of the nation, may be properly safeguarded many laws have been passed that affect the pro- fession of pharmacy. The passage of the Pure Food and Drug Act by Congress on June 30, 1906, has a most important influence. The operation of these laws, both state and federal, has created a demand for care- fully trained pharmacists, analysts, and drug inspectors. There are over one thousand registered drug stores In the state of Oklahoma. Each store must have a pharmacist, registered in this state, in charge at all times. The recent passage of the Parker Bill permits pharmacists to be commissioned in the Public-Health Service. The properly trained pharmacist has excellent opportunities in the civil service. Many of the manufacturing houses and large dealers employ pharmacists to test the quality, and assist in preparing, the products they make, buy, or sell. The School of Pharmacy prepares the student -for professional service as well as giving courses in merchandising, also the laws governing the retail business THIS SPACE CONTRIBUTED BY THE FOLLOWING OKLAHOMA DRUGGISTS: PURYEAR ' S DRUG STORE — Pawhuska By J.

Paqa 378 THE FABLE OF THE FRESHMAN By JOHNNY RUNYAN Once upon a time there was a freshman who was very ignorant but who had a lot of jack, filthy lucre or purchasing power, as the case might be. This freshman decided to go to college and so he sent for a lot of different catalogues from various educational institutions which specialized in dumb freshmen who had yearnings for the cul- tural side of life. And it came to pass that this ignorant fresh- man (who had a lot of money), after deliberating at great length, decided to come to Oklahoma University where he understood that the students had a great deal of fun, went to practically no classes, and dated the fair sex every night under a harvest moon. And so, this little freshman who had what it takes, embarked from his home, bid his parents a fond but tearful goodby, and set forth on his great adventure. When he arrived at the University, he went to the Dean of Men ' s office, who told him all about the perils and pitfalls of college life and sent him to the Y. M. C. A. office In the Union Building to be saved before he ventured forth among the wolves of the campus. Now all this was very perplexing to the poor, dumb freshman as he had understood from the catalogue that everything was hunky dory. Ap- parently something was putrid In one of the Scan- dinavian countries. So he went back to the Dean of Men ' s office and made bold to enter a general protest about the state of affairs as they were existing. The Dean of Men was also perplexed as he had never seen such a dumb freshman. After ponder- ing deeply and consulting the Administration the Dean advised the freshman to seek out some members of the male sex, whom he jokingly re- ferred to as fraternity men. Said the Dean, " Perhaps they can set you straight as to the do- ings on the campus. I confess that I am at a loss to tell you anything, since I have no way of know- ing anything except what I read in the Oklahoma Daily " (more than a student newspaper). Every state has its outstanding store for University nnen!

Page 380 " But, " continued the Dean, " It has been my general observation that all the drunkards, low heels, etc., are members of one of the vulgar groups known as the Jazz hHounds and the Ruf- Neks. Certainly, you will do well if you avoid close contact with such as they. " The ignorant freshman left the Dean ' s office with those well chosen, pearly words of wisdom ringing in his ears. And so, nightfall found him searching diligently for the members of the male sex whom the Dean had called fraternity men. At last he saw two well-dressed men approach- ing and as they drew near, the ignorant freshman accosted them thusly: " Pardon me, my friends, but are you fraternity men? " Much to his amazement, the men turned on him and pro- ceeded to beat him severely and to render him unconscious. When, at last, his bewildered senses returned to him, the ignorant freshman hailed a cruising cab and directed it to take him to the infirmary. Upon his arrival at the infirmary, he was seized by the ever diligent nurses who hauled him be- fore the medicos. The learned men declared that he had the measles and placed him in solitary confinement on the third floor and forbade him to attempt communication with the outside world. After several days, one of the janitors of the infirmary found the poor, ignorant freshman and sent him to his fraternity house to recover. The janitor was a member in good standing of lota Delta and his brothers were delighted to pledge the poor, unsuspecting freshman since there was a house note due on the first of the month. The fraters enrolled the freshman In Physical Education since all of their members had the final examinations left them as a sacred heritage from long years past. One day, as the poor, ignorant freshman was wandering about the campus looking for the li- brary, he fell in with a guy what carried a cane and said he was a senior lawyer. After chatting a bit, the lawyer confessed that he was none other than Louis Woodruff, the President of the Men ' s Council, and that he would be delighted if the poor, ignorant freshman would come to the free dansant which he was conducting for the students on Saturday afternoon. The freshman thought that this was really college and so he hurried ENJOY . . . . at its best: IN BOTTLES Every bo+tle sterilized. Every dr ink uniform in flavor and carbonation.

Saturday dawned bright and clear and the lit- tle freshman, after mowing the lawn, cleaning out the coal bin, wiping the dishes for Frater Jones, who was III, waxing the floors in the den and a few other light Saturday tasks, slicked up for the big event. As he approached the ballroom, his hat and coat were rudely taken from him and he was given a check and a demand for twenty cents In one and the same breath. Paying off, he was about to approach the free dansant when his friend of the previous week grabbed him and shook him until two bits dropped out of his pocket. The bewildered freshman blinked with amazement at the tactics and he was rudely told, " Next time bring a date. " Entering the ballroom, he saw three thousand, nine hundred and ninety students attempting to dance to the strains of a dance orchestra hidden behind a large bunch of foliage. Spotting a beauteous maiden, the ignorant freshman made bold and cut in. Repeating what the Praters had told him was a good line for all girls, he pressed her for a date for a quiet talk In the backyard of his fraternity house. Suddenly he felt a heavy hand on his shoulder and half turning, he saw that it was the president of the chapter at his elbow. Spoke the president: " Not this one, you dope, this is my girl. " Sadly, the little. Ignorant freshman left the hall in grea t despair. No longer did he carry the jaunty air which had marked him as a college man scarcely an hour before. As he was slowly wending his way towards the corner to get a coke, he heard some one speak to him. " Aren ' t you the freshman who made an ' A ' in Military last week? I ' m a FIgam and i want to know If it ' s O. K. if we use your name on our scholarship list. " As the Fiji finished speaking, a Delt sneaked up from behind a bush and offered the Ignorant freshman five dollars and his board and room if he would allow them to use his name on their list. Hot words passed between the Figam and the Delt and to prevent bodily con- flict the Ignorant freshman hurried off to the cor- ner. He could still hear the combatants loudly You KNOW Ifs Good Two apples may LOOK alike, but when you bite into thenn . . . what a difference!

The ignorant freshman thought that all was at an end and as he was walking aimlessly about he met a man who spoke with a soft southern drawl and who appeared to be a very nice guy. The freshman poured out his woes into the ear of the sympathetic man from the south, baring his inmost secrets. As he finished, the man chuckled softly. " Why, son, " said the man, " I reckon you all ain ' t got so much complaint. Look at me, I ' m the original forgotten man. " " What did you say your name was? " queried the ignorant freshman.

Naturally, we can think of things now that we would have done differently, but on the whole we are very well satisfied with the result of our year ' s work. We only hope that you will be pleased, for it is your book now. The success of the book depended on the co- operation throughout the year of various people. We wish to express our sincere appreciation to Charles Foliansbee and his Business Staff for their able handling of the financial part of the book; to Kenneth Wilson, Mary Elizabeth Hewgley and John Runyan who stood by all year ready to do anything they could to help; and to the other members of the Editorial staff, all of whose as- sistance was invaluable. We owe much to Mr. R. C. Walker and Mr. E. K. Burns of the Southwestern Engraving Co. and to Mr. W. W. Mercer of the Economy Advertising Co. for their advice and service. We wish to thank Mr. Earl Carroll for his selec- tion of the beauties, and Mr. Clarence Ireland, the official SOONER photographer, for taking the pictures of the entries in the contest. Finally we wish to thank the loyal firms and individuals who have purchased advertising space, and above all the student body itself for their generous support. JAMES F. HAWES, Editor.
