Follansbee, counsel Mid- states Oil Corporation, member of American, Oklahoma and Tulsa Bar , Associations. Vice-President Men ' s ■ Council of the Y. M. C. A. Member of the Young Men ' s Club. President of the East Oklahoma Alumni Association of Phi Kappa Psi Fraternity, Received LL.B. degree from Harvard Law School, 1941. Before moving to Tulsa in 1942 to become associated with Midstates Oil Corporation, he was a partner in the law firm of Amote. Amote and Follansbee in McAlester, Oklahoma. Born and raised in Eu- faula, Oklahoma, and was graduated from the University of Oklahoma in 1936. While there he had an outstand- ing student record. He was awarded Dad ' s Day Cup as outstanding man student of the University for 1934-35. Was editor-in-chief of " Sooner " year- book. 5fc Men and women of college age are the builders of the world ahead. If they will but dare to dream and to differ, this world can be a world of new splendor, new freedom. Only by dreaming new dreams until they dream them into reality can they prove their devo- tion to the rugged pioneer virtues that carved America out of the wilderness and made it rich and great. PREPARATION FOR TOMORROW The first task is to complete the training. The neces- sity for university education should not be questioned. From the ivy-clad buildings and tree-shaded campuses step the men and women who will wield tremendous influence in building the America of tomorrow. By providing dynamic leadership, the colleges helped America from the very beginning. Consider the Decla- ration of Independence and its signers who were the founding fathers of the United States — 27 of them were college graduates ... in a day when colleges were few and far between. Today, college graduates repre- sent 80 per cent of the U. S. Senate — 75 per cent of the House of Representatives — 85 per cent of the governors of our 48 states. The current issue of Who ' s Who lists 31,692 men and women, of whom nearly 90 per cent attended college -many having worked their way through and on up to the top. A liberal education leads the way to knowledge and to understanding as nothing else can possibly do. THE NEW FRONTIERS The center of civilization has been moving steadily westward for more than twenty-five hundred years. The people of the world today look to America for hope and leadership. Ten years of depression and partici- pation in the greatest war of all time have given the United States the greatest sociological education in its history. Although scars remain, our people have no reason to be conscious of anything but a sense of strength. « TD COLLEGE MEN AND WOMEN This article and those which follow were contributed by former editors and business- managers of the SOONER Yearbook. History is still young enough to be closely interesting; this country is only a long lifetime old. Our own Soonerlcmd, home of the im- mortal Will Rogers, is a land of youth and opportunity. Oklahoma ' s opportunities for the future are boundless. A new era of industrial development has been introduced by the war; decentralization of heavy industry has gone a long way to liberate the South and Southwest from a " colonial status " in the national econ- omy. Our state has untold natural wealth as yet underdeveloped. Oil is producing many compounds known only to the laboratory at present; familiar glass sand will produce build- ing blocks for our growing cities; steel will be produced and its products will help enrich our citizens; our agricultural development will be greatly expanded. Think of the new frontiers opened up by technology and invention. Think of the foreign markets as industrialization sweeps the world. Good free land may no longer be available, but there ' ll be new oppor- tunities all over the old landscape for those who are willing to hustle around and find them. The frontier has always been closed to the young man who is afraid. TOMORROW ' S CHALLENGE In an address delivered at the 1944 com- mencement exercises, Columbia University, Nicholas Murray Butler challenged youth to be optimistic. He said that optimism is essential to achievement and it is also the foundation of courage and of true progress. Back some of our college men and women into a comer today and they will calmly inform you that the day of opportunity is gone, killed by the capitalistic system. They will say that there is no chance for a young man unless he has plenty of money or influential friends. This unwholesome attitude is one probably en- gendered in part by the fact that millions reached maturity during the depression. Mil- lions of us have never known a normal Amer- ica but many of us believe that, if business and industry are given opportunity to prove what can be done without the restraint of unneces- sary governmental shackles, youth will quickly rediscover that rich rewards can still be earned by hard and intelligent work. William Benton, vice-president of the Univer- sity of Chicago, says that youth ' s worst enemy is fear of failure. Too many college graduates demand the security offered by a big company. They don ' t mind starting at the bottom but they want someone else to hold the ladder. Their fathers and grandfathers were unhindered by this concentration on security, this Maginot line point of view. It was individual hard working men who built the wealth of this country, not big business. Large companies suffer from the disease of bigness and tend to become ultra- conservative. The individual ' s flexibility, drive, and imagination are too frequently submerged. Tomorrow ' s challenge to college men and women is that they seek opportunity for per- sonal growth. They must battle to overcome a degree of timidity that would have lost this country to the Indians a century and a half ago. A man or woman who forges ahead in a big company would likely go farther if he trav- elled alone. One who works for himself takes risks but he also gets the employer ' s cut. He has the best right to be proud and the greatest opportunity for personal growth. CHARLES L. FOLLANSBEE, B.A., 1936, LL.B. (Harvard Law School), 1941. -■■V m ¥ ' m TD THOSE WHO REACH TD CCEPT TDMDRRDW ' S CHALLENGE There are those who refuse to look to the coming day with fear. In the changing spectrum of human-social events, they accept the challenge of cre- ating a new world out of chaos. Respecting tradition, they seek progress. Believing in the dignity of man, they champion his rights. Relying upon God, they place their faith in Him. Tomorrow ' s challenge demands guidance. The experience of enlight- ened men and women furnishes the comprehension we need to build surely and well. Without their patient controlling hand, reaching from yesterday to tomorrow, we would have no common bond with the heritage that belongs to the morning. Tomorrow ' s challenge demands life and laughter. From that depth of seriousness in which war engulfs all, we must arise triumphant in our faith in the fundamental goodness and joy of life. Society cannot survive without the co-operative exploitless will to be a happy people. Group life co-ordinates individuals to work together that they may play together. Tomorrow ' s challenge demands strength. Construction is a job for the vital, enthusiastic man who has the energy to remain on his feet and lift up others. We need the pioneer stamina of strong bodies, coupled with unflick- ering courage and singleness of purpose. Tomorrow ' s challenge demands leadership. An unorganized groping for uncertain goals is not the solution to our problematic world. In our service- groups and University students, we find the men and women who are being trained for the positive, directive leadership which will bring the daybreak. There are those who have dedicated themselves to an acceptance of tomorrow ' s challenge. To them, we dedicate the 1944-45 SOONER.

Navy, was borii uii the Osanc Indian Reservation of Oklahoma on January 31, 1887. He vas graduated from the high school of Pawnee, Okla., in the class of 190+, president of his class and captain of the football and base- ball teams. Appointed to the V. S. Naval Academy b the late Hon. Bird S. McGuirc, del- ejjate to Congress. Captain Donelson was the first native born Oklahoman to attend the Academy. He graduated in the class of 1910; he played on the ' arsit - football team and in hi senior year was captain of the track team. His specialty in track was the running broad jump in which he did 22 feet seven and a half inches, estab- lishing a Naval Academy rec- ord that stood for twelve or thirteen years. Because of a physical disability incapacitat- ing him for sea duty he was placed on the retired list of the Navy in December, 1936. In November, 1940, he was recalled to active duty ashore, and served at the Eleventh Naval District Headquarters, San Diego, until transfer to his present assign- ment. Professor of Naval Sci- ence and Tactics, University of Oklahoma, in February, 1942. The COMMANDING OFFICER The purpose of the Nav ' ' -lJ l ' i();;ram is to prcpaic kompctitively selected yoiitli ot the jiarioji to become iia al reserve officers to meet the requirciiieiits of our e. pan(hiiE Navy. Starting out as a great educatiotial experiment in which the Navy and the V- 2 colleges were partners, the program has more than justified itself. The annoimced principles and policies have stood the tests so well as to be indeed a tribute to those who did the planning and to the civilian educators who have collaborated so effectively. Within the program tiie . .K.( ). ' r.C " . has retained its identity as to curricula and luiitomi, ami in the not distant future all students will be in a . .K.( ). ' r.C ' . st.itus. The general aims are that all naval students completing the reipiire- ments will h.ive a good general educ.itioii, a well-disciplined mind and body, a sense of initiative, and a willingness to assume responsibility, an appreciation of naval iileals and traditions, and in the case of N.R.O.T.C. students a practical and theoretical knowledge of essential naval subjects such that they are commissioned on the campus ami ordered imme- diately to active duty in the operating naval forces. As for the University of Oklahoma, I take occasion to express my appreciation of a job well done luider difficult circumstances. ' J ' his sentiment is extended to the President and other adnuriistrative officials, to the general faculty, to the all-student body, aiul to my own sf.ifi. I hope and believe that ( ur splendid work and cooperation will continue not only for the duration of the V-12 Program but also on tiirough a long future of peace time N.R.( ). T.l. " . acti ities on the campus. My part in it all has been more than mere duty; it has indeed Intii a pleasure ami a source of satisfaction to have served in and with the Universit of m ' home state. |. V. DoM-i.sDN, Capt. I ' . S.

In 1926 the Naval Re- serve Officers ' Training Corps was established in various universities throughout the countrj. Chief among these was the unit at the University of California. On 1.3 June, 1940, the Secretary of the Navy informed the late President W. R. Bizzcll that the Univer- sity of Oklahoma had been selected as the loca- tion for a Naval R. O. T. C. unit. In Septem- ber the first applicants were examined. Blue- clad NRO students were a strange contrast to the ovcnvheliiu ' ng k h a k i - clothed majority on tlie campus that year. By the end of the first year, the " sand " of Oklahoma was well into its trans- formation into " salt. " To the ordinary individual, the word rlrill denotes only a session of march- ing, but to the N. R. O. T. C, it also has another meaiung. Besides the one hour of marching per week, another hour is spent in various ways by the ilifferent classes in N. R. O. T. C. JACK T. WITBECK " Feets. " Pallas, Texas.

K er Tuesda y afternoon at 1600, the first class- men biis themselves with reviews of navigation, seamanship, including ship handling and nomen- clature, and instruction in military courtesx and dut aboard ship. Some- thing new was added to the social scene of the caminis also with the coming of the Trident Club, a Naval honor fra- ternit) : the famous Navy ilances ; aiul the always liopiilar Na ' smokers. Some cynics were wont to say that the new uni- forms and the social at- traction of the NR( ) was a big factor in the large second ear enrollment. This ear Worcester bar- racks p i o n e e r e d the dances with a post-foot- ball game dance in Okla- homa Cit following the pigskin ictor o ei ' Ne- braska. The most evclii- si e party of the semester was gi en for the first classmen and officers in the Crystal Room of the Skir in Hotel, Kebniary Page 34 SECOND CLASS N.R.D.T.C. Not many " Irregulars " will lor ct the look (jii Mnncy ' s lace w Ikm Ik- was torn troni his j rasp on the bookcase and cartcil down those dark, tlark stairs. Nor will they forget the party at Rickner ' s that triiiiii|)hant afternoon that the company competition results were announceil. Ihe memory of the tubbinjj; of the house officers to tinailv cap the victorious celebration will never fade. Tliev aren ' t likely, either, to forget the winning of the softball league championship the same afternoon and the subsequent hoist- ing of the broom. Xor all that lollowed that. Nor the reception in the L ' nion Lounge after the victorious June Week parade, where the class was introduced to its color girl, Margaret Powell. Nor the following June Week Ball with the ghost of T. D. playing trombone for the Rhythm Gobs. No, the whole thing from beginning to entl will he remembereil by us as a tribute to a great class and bv them as a generally eventful ant! sometimes trying interval. It is typical of the spirit and forcefulness of that class — a class made up of men from all over these United States. Phonetically it is a combination of slow southern drawls, Yankee accents, and southeastern twangs. The Class is characteristic of our present day age and the present war in which many join together many miles from home. We can sav with no degree of falsehood that the entrance of the " Irregulars " into the unit was a clean sweep. MALCOLM S. BR. ' VDW.W " Brad. " Indianapolis, Indi- ana.

CiAKKlMlN COMMANDANT Colonel (larrison, a native Oklahoinaii, is also the first alumnus of tlic I ' niversity of Oklahoma to serve as Professor of Militar ' Science and Tactics of the institution. Colonel (larrison hegan his military career in 1917, immediately after being graduated from Cherokee High Schof)l. After returning from overseas (lut in France he entered N ' ortln estern State Teachers College at .Al a in September, I ' MO. While atteniling school at Northwestern he phned football and was captain of his team in the fall of 1920. Also while there C ' oionel ( larrison met, wooed, and was married to .Miss Nita Smith of Alva. After leaving Noi thw estern Teachers College, C ' olonel ( iarrison enrolleil in the I ' niversity of Oklahoma where he received his Hachelor and Master ' s degrees. Colonel (iarrison was Superintendent of the Norman city schools when he mobilized ]XU the 4Mh Division on September U), 1940. From the time of mobilization until June, 1942, he commaiuled the 2ni Hattalion, IKOth Infantry. In June, 1942, he went overseas where he served as Chief of the Schools and Training Section, Office of the Chief of Fngineers, I ' .uropean Tiu-.iter of Operations. When he relurned to the I ' m ' ted States e,irl in I ' M. he was assigned to his present duties at the l ' ni ersit of Okla- homa, and reported here 1 April of that year.

Page 60 Before the War the Military Department ol the University i)t Oklahoma consisted ot the Reserve Officers Training Corjis. Training was jfi en in two divisions, two years oi basic training ami two years of advanced traininjJT. Training in both Field Artillery and ( )rdnance was ottered in the Advanced Course, with those satisfactorily completing; the Ail anceil Course receiving commissions as Second I Jeutenants in the Reserve Corps. Since June l9■ the Reserve Officers Iraining Corps program has been altered so that now onlv a two year basic, branch immaterial course is being given. Since it is anticipated that practically all the young men now entering the I niversity will soon be called to active duty with the . rmed Forces, the War Department has set up a military training program liesigned to give them that training which is considered basic tor all branches ot the service. Several ot our students from this program have already been ordereii to Officers Candidate Schools since going on active duty. In June 1943 the War Department activated an Army Specialized Training L nit at the L ' niversitv ot Oklahoma. Several hundred young men trom throughout the Army were sent to this Unit to pursue courses in basic an.i advanced engineering. Flowever, the program was curtailed considerably in March 1944 when all the engineering stuilents were ordereii to duty with troop units. However. 56 pre-medical students were sent to the University to prepare tor assignment to schools as medical students. Upon completing their pre-medical work in December 1944 these men were transferred to medical schools throughout the country. While the Army Specialized Training was discontinued at the University in December 1944. the War Department has maintained the Army Specialized Training Reserve Program here. Those partici- pating in this program are selected young men from throughout the territorial boundaries of the Eighth Service Command who are members of the Unlisted Reserve Corps. Some are being given basic college work, while more advanced stuiients are enrolleii in Basic engineering. MILITARY DEPT. STAFF First roii left to right: Capt. O. H. Ve.sterman. Lt. Col.

Now comes the time to show the ()rl(l what gootl marksmen they really are! . . . Rest at last, and it is about time. But even at rest, military traditions can not be forgotten. See the neat triangle of rifles standing against the wall? Take a gooii breath while you can, boys, because it won ' t be long until you ha e to get back to the old grinil again.

RIFLE TEAM The inclusion ot RiHc iMarksmanship in the Basic curriculum of ROTC Military Science presented almost unsurmountable ilifficultics in locating and equipping a suitable rifle range. With a war going on, the matter of obtaining the necessary steel and other materials was rather difficult but with the able assistance of Mr. Walter Kraft, director of Utilities, all these difficulties and delays were overcome in the latter part of November and a very fine small bore range was constructed in the north end of the west Stadium. This range provides for twenty firing positions and is excellently illuminated. This is the first year that the military department at the University of Oklahoma has had a rifle team. Students who fired the highest scores were selected for the rifle team. The team competetl in telegraphic matches with Illinois School of Technology, Texas School of Technology and participateil in two shouKier to shoulder matches with Oklahoma A M College. The team also competed in the 1 learst Troph and the l ' " ,ighth Service Command matches. The team was ably coached by Major Gilbert G. Wright, Jr., and Technical Sergeant Joseph J. Bode. Rifle Team Letters were presented on April lOth to the following men who had met the recjuirements for this award: Alton L. Brown Joe T. GiBBs, Jr. Robert Guion, Jr. Aneece W. Hassen Paul E.

Tl ' RLEY Paje 56 MILITARY BAND Five thousand years ago, a procession of Egyptians marched slowly toward the shrine of Serapis, god of healing. In the parade we find a group of men playing together on musical instruments, — reeds, pipes, tambouri nes, and drums. Hearing the sounds of these in the distance, we can imagine people coming out of their doors and saying to one another, " Here comes the Band. " No parade is complete without a band. This is one of the pri- mary purposes of the R.O.T.C. Band. The band men are members of the R.O.T.C. Unit, taking all fundamental and tactical work in addition to the service in the band. All formal ceremonies and reviews are organized with the band having an integral part in the event. A good march, well played, has an invigorating effect on all people whether it be civilian or military and in the parade, good march music stimulates and unifies a unit in precision, pride and unity that can come from no other source than good band music. We have, even through the years of war, maintained a good R.O.T.C. band and we take great pride in the fine organization we have had as a part of the Military Unit of the University of Oklahoma. The following R.O.T.C. students have served with the Band this semester: Bowling, Robert E. Bryant, Joe E. Burgess, Jimmie C. Camp, E.arl F " . Collins, Clifford E. CoLLiNES, B.

YOU -, :■•■ ' V - We had been talking about starting some after-duty study classes on our station and my friend said, " I ' m a college graduate, but I never thought much about it until I had served overseas for some time. Now I realize how fortunate I am that I live in a country where I had an opportunity to go to college. I ' m very grateful for that privilege, and since I am so grateful, I always want to serve my country to the best of my ability. Now I think I ' m doing all I can, but when this is over, we are going to be living in a world full of diffi- cult problems, in a world packed with misery and bitterness. Where will my place be then? How can I use my education to help win and preserve the peace that must prevail if our ideas of life are to survive? " Such a question must exist in the minds of all college men and women if tomorrow we accept the challenge that is rightfully ours. We live in a democracy and the success of a democracy varies with the extent of the education of its people. Our electorate today has a higher level of education than ever be- fore. But nevertheless, the leaders of the electorate must come from the inherently capable and more fully educated citizens. College develops leadership in thought and : :- ' - ' yi- ' ' 0KmiiiiMiiilMllftiti8UtSaMi ' fri.4tiW Stf«tA ' T4M € ViMlj AND TDMORHDW its college-trained citizens to be the leaders in tomorrow ' s post-war world. We must accept that leadership with all of the mental and moral courage that is in us. We must be fair and just to our nation, to our- selves, and to the whole world. We must free ourselves of bigotry, intol- erance, and narrow-minded provin- cialism. We must realize that no longer can we live unto ourselves in action and our country will look to what is a very small portion of the world. We cannot all be leaders in an mternational, national or even state- wide sense, but we can be leaders in our own communities. We can think deliberately, intelligently and dispxissionately about post-war problems. Then after reaching our own decisions, we can rationally discuss these matters with those about us, attempting at all times to encourage that which is for the ben- efit of the majority and discouraging that which is for the benefit of the gain-seeking few. We can foster and promote honest and efficient local government for the integrity of the small unit is reflected in the larger. We can encourage a sympathetic understanding among the various races and creeds in our own coun- try for in so doing, we encourage peace and good-will among the peoples of all countries. We can seek to improve the scope and free- dom of our own educational system and urge other countries to do like- wise, for we have seen that con- trolled ignorance breeds hatred and intolerance. We can do all this and much more for we will have countless opportu- nities to be heard in the post-war world. College men and women have a challenge to help win and preserve the peace. If we success- fully and honestly meet that chal- lenge, we will be of infinite service to the future generations of all the world. Let us accept the responsi- bility which is ours.

She asked me to write something on " Tomorrow ' .s Challenge " — a most important sub- ject which I am sure w ill be covered by her other editorials. In my own, however, I should like to mention the chall enge that is being met toda ' by our own graduates all () er the orld, an upside down world crowded top-heaw with seemingK impossible problems. I have not had the opportunity to serve overseas, as so many of our graduates have, but I have had the opportu- nitv to correspond w ith some of them and to observe their reactions, and I have been so impressed with the straight line of fineness that runs through those letters. I ' ve been so thrilled with the inspiritig glimpses of their own soul expansions. They have only mentioneil a few prosaic facts, but they have all revealed the same tran.sceiident note. In spite of the giving of our whole human resource and strength for nuirdering our fellow men, in spite of their hatred of destruction of the decencies of all of us in this conwilsion, they realize th.it it must be doru ' and the are doing their job — but w ith the thought of reconstruc- tion alwa s in miml. And this should be the theme tli.it all of us should re- member in this chaos — that when this period is past, there w ill be a great time of reconstruction, re-e pansion, re-e ablation of .

Ja.mcs K. Davis. M. D. James K. Davis, M. D. Puye ya That we succeed in concluding a sound peace is assumed. Our problem is in preserving it. And perhaps the prima rj- means for doing so is a large and potent military ' and naval force. We must not let the tremen- dous striking power we have developed become in- effective and obsolete. We must continue to pro- vide the men who direct our army, navy, and air forces with sufficient funds to compete with other nations and to I « I 9 KlN ' C From a tranquil rxistence at the Iniversity I wa? dumprd into the army in June of 1942.

Our past policy has been to fit a large civilian reserve around a nucleus of highly trained professional men. This is in harmony with our natural apathy for regimentation, and makes the minimum demands on those participating. Such a program can be effective provided we contituie our com- pulsory military training. Once wc have won the war in all theaters our immediate reaction will be to reduce our efforts in this direction. Bitter lessons have taught us that we cannot risk this, and though we all deeply desire to turn our backs on the rest of the world, it would be folly to imagine we could. It is here that today ' s college men and women will find their greatest challenge. Most of you will be fortunate enough to remain in the United States, ' ' ou must con- tribute your portion toward seeing that you stay there and do your traveling at your own convenience and your own expense, ' ou must employ all of your training and your advantages of education to insure yourselves the right to an uninterrupted life, " ou may be asked to be trained or to train our future reserves, ' ou may be called upon to occupy our outposts. " ' ou might even be asked to rebuild part of the territory we so thoroughly wrecked. Capt. Seth S. King. Soon the war that we are fighting will be over and peace will have been established. Vill this peace be permanent or only temporary as before ? The people of the United States must realize that as much a determined ef- fort must be made to keep this peace as was made to wage the war for this peace. To do this, the in- terest and courage of every .American citizen will be needed. Many of our citizens have given their lives and more will before the war is ended. These sacrifices will not be forgotten, nor should be forgotten, that we may lead the life Jlxes Thompsov I am a Navigator for a squadron of B-29 ' s, which should be bombing the hell out of Tokyo soon. the reason for these sacrifices This war is being fought so that wc have looked forward to since our youth. We are fighting for the freedoms that we enjoy in our form of government. To have this kind of life, we must make a determined effort to keep it — not intermittently, in the form of wars — but always. To do this we must co- operate with other nations to quell those people that would infringe upon the rights of others to li e as they please. ' I he world is too small for us to remain u ithin our borders and ignore what is happening to the other free peoples of the world. Freedom can be maintained by keeping aggressors from becoming strong enough to en- danger our way of life. In order to keep a good form of government, we must be prepared to protect it. Many other countries have this same feeling. Should we not work together? We must co-operate with these other nations to protect our rights from those aggressors that would force their leaders upon us. This can best be ac- complished by an international police force of which we should be a definite part. This may mean that many of our youths will have to sacrifice a few years of their life to keep our portion of this international force. But this sacrifice will not be comparable to the one made bv many of our men and women in World War I and World War II. Lt. [lles Thompson-. We, the college men and women of today, must be alert to the tran- sition in the world of Tomorrow. To be ready for this period, we must, as an industry or factory, have a " building pro- gram.

KERR Never in all tlu- long history of this worKl has Paul ' s sasing hccn more true: " Old things arc passed away; behold, all things are become new. " Arc wc to lament the old? Are we to try to restore what has been, and is no more? Even if that were desirable, it would be impossible. Millions of men and women and children throughout the world have pcrisheil in these long bloody years of war. Whole vast areas, once blossoming as the rose, have now been made desert. But not all ot this old worUl that has passetl away was beautiful. Kvervwhere, in the old world, miUions wore their lives away in misery that a few might live in luxury. Our eyes had not then been opened to the miracles of production that humanity is capable of, once they have availed themselves of the possibilities of modern scieiue, and of that brotherlv li ing-together which Jesus preacheil. It is the youth of the huni — our returning ser ice men and women ami the boys and girls now enter- ing college — to whom we must look for the fashioning of that worKl of the future, which Jesus long ago envisionetl. in the |)ast lia e had too little faith In the ast possibilities of science and government. Wc have forgotten the promise that all mankind should li e in brotherhootl. But you, who have borne the harilships ami the wounils of war — anil have mourned the ileath of so many of your gallant comrailes — you voung men and women now in college must surely have learned that you can not trust the fears and ilnuhts of the wiuKI that is gone, luit must ad enture forth boldh and unafraid into the ast i)ossibilities that the worKl has locked within it — aiul which the ke of knowledge IS now opening to our eyes.

Page 85 Counselor o Men The impact of the war on the yoiinjj men of the campus is seen in sharp detail in the office of the Counselor of Men, P ' avette Copeland, for it is there that hundreds of students have discussed their jiians ant! preparations tor entering the armed forces. Twentv-eight years ajio, I ' rofessor Copehuid ielt the cam- pus as an underjfraduate to enter the army air corps in the first World War, and perhaps he can see a little bit of him- self in each of the xounii; men with whom he confers across his tlesk.

Miss Reinecke is a close personal friend to the girls. The name " Counselor of Women " is used by her office because of the stigma sometimes attacheil to the more frequently useii title. Miss ' irgima Reinecke Sorority rushing and pleeiging is one ot the many duties delegated to the Counselor of Women and the activities of the sorority groups on the campus are supervised clirectly by her office. University housing is another phase of her counseling work. This ear, freshman dorms were located in the vacant fraternity houses. Iiss Reinecke sponsors Women ' s League, independent women ' s govern- ment group; Fanhellenic, sororitv go - erning group; and the Cadettes, co-ed organization for the entertainment of the naval personnel. She also ser es as director of Union activities. Miss Reinecke also supervises ap- prentice training of graduate counselors on the campus who plan to go into per- sonnel work, and teaches a course in Problems in Student Counseling. ' arious group acti ities take up much of her " extra-curricular " time. She is also a popular speaker before various civic clubs in the state. Page 87 Assistant to the President On July 1, 1944, the title of Dean of the Faculty was changed by the Regents of the University to Administrative Assistant to the President. Dean Cheadle had held the former position since 1942 and continued under the new title. The duties of this office are similar to those of a ice-President of the University but are concerned with atialrs of the university proper and not with state-wide activities. Dr. John B. Cheaule These tiuties ha e been greatly modi- fied by war conditions. Legal and busi- ness problems growing out ot the neces- sity of pro ' iding housing facilities for students, contract negotiations with Army and Navy under which trainees arc assigned here, lieterments and plans for the training of ilischarged veterans take much of the time ot this office. Professor Clieaiile joined the Unl- ersitv start in 19U9 as Assistant Profes- sor of Law. Prior to this he had prac- ticed at Alva, Oklahoma, lie served one year as acting Professor ot Law at Lelaiul Stanfoni and as a member of the summer faculty at Cornell. Cheadle is a memlur of the Association of the American Law Schools and ot the American Bar .Association. 1 le holds degrees from the University of Kansas, the LIniversity of Chicago, and Ilar- aril Unixersitv. Paqa 88 College Arts Sciences The College of Arts and Sciences was established in 1892 and the first of its degrees were granted in 1898. It is the center of the University of Oklahoma out of which the Graduate College and the professional schools have grown. A part of its instruction is founilatinnal for the work of the professional schools. The College of Arts anti Sciences affords the student an opportunity to test himself in several lines of endeavor Dean E. D. .Meacha.m before he decides upon his special rteltl of activity. As soon as feasible, usually at the beginning ot the sophomore year, the student decides whether he will se- lect a major subject in the College of Arts and Sciences, or enter one of the schools of that college. The ideal of the College of Arts and Sciences is to develop human beings to the fullest extent of their powers and capacities, to the end that they may be- come useful members of the society in which the) move, and at the same time achieve the maximum of intellectual freedom, of personal integrity, and of happiness. It recognizes that its oppor- tunities are for the intellectually com- petent, and it aims, first, to provide a curriculum broad enough to enable such students to find themselves; and second, to pro idc facilities to foster the growth of the spirit of inquiry, of intellectual honesty, of awareness of good, and of a disciplined conscience. The ideal equip- ment for facing this world lies in the power of clear thinking. Page 89 -e of Engineering " Within a year you won ' t have any students in the Col- lege of Knji;ineering. " That is the statement I heart! man ' times after the Japs attacked Pearl Ilarhor. Those who made such statements were thinking in terms of past wars when men in the ajije bracket ol college students were called into service immediately to learn to drill, tire a gun, wig wag, care for horses, and do the minor details assigned to the enlisted man. The did not loresee that the ilemam.! would be so great as to necessitate the establishment of Army or Navy Training programs in all ot the hrst class Dean- W h liam H. Carson engineering colleges ol tlie country. Then, too, it was the responsibility of the engineers to convert peace time in- ikistries to those manufacturing all types ol implements ot war. Also, it was their responsibility to make the plans lor the gigantic airplane plants, munitions factories, and other similar works which spread across the land. riie supervision of this enormous un- ilertaking was assigneil to engineers. Since engineering was such a predomi- nant factor in our war effort, the selec- tive serxice olliciais matle special provi- sions wheicby civilians enrolled in engi- neeiing colleges were permitted to con- tinue witli tlieir educational program. As a consetjuencc, insteail ol being with- out students, the number of credit hours taught by the College of I ' .ngi- neering was increased aboxe that as- signed to teachers in normal times. i Ik- eiiucational program ol tiie Col- lege of i ' .ngineering in the post-war period will be in step with the times.

The School of Art maintains cur- ricula leading to the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Art Etiucation, in Art for Industry and for War Industry, in Interior Decoration and in Painting.

Page 91 Bus. Administration Instruction in business subjects was oft ' crctl first in 1913 by the School ot Commerce and Industry, a sub-tlivision of the College of Arts and Sciences. By 1929, for adminis- trative purposes and because of its growing function, the school was re-organizcd into the present College of Business Administration. The broad aim of this college is two-foKl: first, to give college students systematic preparation for business careers; second, to give students such training as will enalile them to understand the public problems. -it Dk. n Arthir H. Apams I he teeliiiieal business courses offered are designed especially to prepare stu- tleiits tor business occupations such as accountancy, banking, go ernmcnt ser- vice, foreign traile, secretarial work, insin-ance, ami mereliandising. The faculty of the College of Busi- ness Administration now has tlefinite plans to meet the conilitions and (.le- inaiuls which will ciinlri)nt the college in the post-war perioil. Ihese problems arc to be met by ( 1 ) offering special- i .eil programs of study necessary to meet the licmands ami recjuirements of ex-service men ami women; (2) by re- ising the content ami organization of man of the present courses to meet changetl inisincss conilitions ami prac- tices; (? ) by offering new courses in the lieUls of recent business developments ami techniques, such as foreign trade, Inisiness management, accounting, fi- n.mce, etc., and (4) by increasing the facultx ' personnel with highly trained specialists as demands re(iuirc.

Page 94 School Law In response to a general demand for legal training at the University, the School of Law was established on the cam- pus in 1909. Its stanciing as a law school is well exemplified by its membership in the Association of American Law Schools. A complete law library maintained in connection with the school allows ample opportunity for legal study and investi- gation for the student lawyers. Dean John G.

If the student has a fielci of inter- est at the time of enrollment, his aca- demic adviser for that semester is a teacher whose interest and training are along the same lines. This gives the student an opportunity to explore the field further. However, it at the time of enrollment the stutlent is unilecided upon his held of interest, he enrolls as a general student and is given an oppor- tunity during his first year ' s work to in- vestigate the various possibilities avail- able to him here at the University.

Since graduating irom O. U. in ' 34 I have been a poor working girl cover- ing considerable newspaper space and filling the air waves with advertising. Since October 6, 1942, I have been in the United States Naval Reserve. Most oi my career has been spent at the Naval Supply Depot, Navy Yard New York Annex at Bayonne, N. J., My immediate " challenge " is to get the war over as soon as possible so ' s to bring home Irom France one Freder- ■ ick A. Nelson, Jr., major, infantry, ■ ' who ' s related to me by marriage. My tomorrow ' s " challenge " is to get enough sleep. Alter working heel and toe watches (I ' m the heel!) around the clock in the communications office, I ' ll be ready to sleep a minimum of eight years when the war is over. After that — I ' d like to take a long rest. - «-.r- .i " -i. Tomorrow ' s Challengi " Tomorrow ' s Challenge to College Men and Women " sounds like a subject of great scope and deep thought. Let ' s look at it more closely. What is tomorrow? Webster says tomorrow is " the day after the present. " Have you ever lived a tomorrow? Have you ever held it in your hand or sampled its wares? Certainly not. You live Today. To- morrow is a dreamer ' s world — manana never comes. What is today ' s challenge to college men and women? The answer is ready. Today ' s challenge is to win the war. Winning the war demands great military planning in strategy and tactics. It also de- mands the seemingly simple things of life, like furnishing our men three meals a day. And thereby hangs this tale. Providing food for a part of the navy afloat and at advance bases is one of the many functions of the Naval Supply Depot, Bay- onne, N. J. It is the home port for a number of the storeships which are the backbone of the navy food supply line. These navy store- ships, or provisions ships, are standard lib- erty-ship size with extensive refrigerated space. Some travel the milk-route system with regular ports where they discharge cargo, finally returning to the home port for a re-fill, then back again. Others provision ships afloat. For instance, a task force will tiAri Ay L, I College Men and Women anchor in a sheltered spot and all ships will pool their small boats and personnel. The ships will then load from the storeship in a tremendous combined operation until all are supplied with the thousands of pounds of edibles that help win the war and make a sailor fit his sailor suit to the quicker. What does all this have to do with today ' s challenge to college men and women, you might ask. (I asked first!) Just this. The next time you start to gripe about rationing — don ' t! The next time Aunt Minnie brags about getting steak without red points — give her a good lecture. The next time you have a meatless Tuesday — eat your fish with patri- otic pride! The following figures are based on last year ' s issues at the Naval Supply Depot, Bayonne, N. J. (Hon- est!) The next time you get in a dis- cussion of rationing, feel free to use them. You too can be the life of the party. If all the apples were baked in pies two inches thick, and all the pies were stacked on top of each other, they would reach 45 miles up in the sky. The beef poundage translated in- to cattle and lined up single file, tails down, would reach from Tulsa to Oklahoma City (p. s., short horns). The lamb poundage when trans- lated into sheep would keep one man busy approximately three 8- hour sleepless nights — just counting sheep. The onions would make enough onion soup to fill the world ' s largest drydock. It would take one man working an eight-hour day seven days a week, 325 years, to peel all the potatoes. In fact, if he started in the year 1620, which was the landing at Plymouth Rock, he would still be peeling. The poor Joe. The butter would require 154,968,- 000 red points at 24 points a pound — but you ' ll have to kick that around yourself. I ' m tired. Now comes the challenge. What are you going to do the next time someone tells you about a little black market down the street . . . hm-m-m-m? That ' s right, folks . . . spit in his eye!

Oklahoma Daily Representative Jarita Bicknell .... Oklahoma Daily Representative One of the oldest stiiciciu groups on the campus is the PublicatiDn Board, a body which acts as supervisor ot the general student publications, the Oklahoma Daily, student newspaper, the SooNER, University yearbook, and the Covered Jf ' agon, campus humor magazine. Organized in its present form in 1915, the board was precedeti by two boards which had much the same function as the present group. In 1926, the membership of the board was changed from five to seven, and the powers of the group were greatly increased. The board membership now includes a chairman, an ex-otficio faculty rep- resentative, an appointed faculty representative, a stuilent representative of the publications-at-large, and a student representati ' e from each of the three student publications. The group now has as one oi its chief duties the selection of the editors of each of the three publications on the campus of the University. It also supervises the imsincss aftairs of the publica- tions. The selection of the editors for the publications is made from filings which are made by students at the beginning of each new semester. Careful consideration of experience, loyalty and executive ability aids the hoard in choosing a student who will be capable ot handling the tiiflicult task of editing a publication. Both experience and scho- lastic standing play an important part in the selec- tion, and no caiulldate is considered who is not carrying a regular schedule of class work. He must also have had at least one semester ' s experi- ence on the publication on which he seeks the editorship. H. n. Herbert, director of the School of Jour- nalism, has been associated with the board since 1915 and is now chairman of the group. Perma- nent journalism representative on the board is John H. Casey, profes sor of journalism, who directs the advertising and business curricula. Casey has served as secretary-treasurer of the board since 1927. During his lea e of absence from the university this past fall, Mrs. Ruth S. Ferris, assistant professor of journalism, served in his position. Dean D. B. R. Johnson, dean of the School of Pharmacy, is the thin! faculty mem- ber of the boartl. His position is tilled by ap- pointment by the president of the University. Robert V. Peterson, supervisor of Student Publi- cations, was an ex-otlicio facult ' adilition to the board during this past year. H. II. IIfrrert Ri Til S. Frrris ROIIFRT . PETKRSON John II.

Ruth Ann Hill represented the Covfictl H ' aifon both semesters. Jo Ann Godown represented the Oklahoma Dailx in the first semester. Jarita Bickiull was her successor in the second semester. Margaret rrimble served as represeiitatix e-at- large both semesters. Besides electing editors of the publications, the board has the power to approve all budgets anti expenditures of the three publications. The gen- eral manager ot student publications, Cecil H. Brite, handles the financial affairs of each publica- tion and of the lournalism Press, Inc. Advertis- ing managers of the Oklahoma Dailx also work under the superxision ot Mr. Hrite and Mrs. Fer- ris. Any problem of administration which comes up mav be referred to tlie board for consideration. In June, 1942, a new plan was instituted where- bv the Publication Board altered the plan of sub- ordinate editorial start appointments on the Okla- homa Daily. I ' nder this plan the journalism fac- ultv selects the stati members of the newspaper who work under the editor. Rotation in office is foilowetl in the staff appointments, so that more students gain experience in the arious positions. The editor of the Oklahoma Daily serves tor an entire semester, but the remainder of the staff is named for eight-week periods. The Coxcred Jf ' apon, campus humor magazine, was preceded by the Jl ' hirkiind, a private venture which, at the request of the staff in 1921, came under the supervision of the Publication Board.

Tom Finney, another lad of the ' 44 crew, was on the scene to do big things with big words. His continual How of new ideas resulted in the present Navy section which he put over to the bo s. In fact, he put it over so well, that the Second followed suit. Lowell Goodman did his share for tlie .Army section of ye Sooner, even to some more arm- twisting of the boys. So in spite of the decreased number of the Army trainees on the campus, we came through with an Army section as of the pre- vious year. Lieutenant Don Boydston, U.S.M.C, just could not find enough to keep himself busy so took o er the compiling of the sports. Andy Riildle was around for a while to work on the fraternity section, antl Norma Jean Dutton was the one re- sponsible for tliose cute cartoons on the division pages. And as for the rest of the crew. The Logan Hall kids moved over in mass when they found the office a good place for the afternoon coke and cig.

Cooley, Dyer, Mowry and Anderson were still sleeping off the after-effects of rush when the were hustled, pa jama-clad, to the spacious H ' tu on office to clip and paste jokes for the September is- sue. With no little pain, each in hei- own turn gave agonizing birth to a story for the lirst issue, lovingly deilicated, green print and all, to the Irosh, who arrixed with a brand-new carload ot tilthy jokes, Ireshly shaipened peneils, clean note- books, and cigs.

JVIeanwhile she sat day after day atop the picture file clipping jokes from old bound Oklahoma f ' liirkiiiids. Most any day she could be found screaming hysterically at an anecdote in one of our dust-encased copies. And then there came the day when the entire Kappa chapter approached the Covered fl ' ayon building with a barrel of boiling tar, another ot feathers and a long auto axle. The STAFF es- caped via the back entrance and found sanctuary in the HOIST office. During the spring months lethargy seized the entire STAFF " and almost any sunny afternoon they could be found at the open window throwing spitballs or paper sacks filled with water at inno- cent profs. After Stites had stopped gloating over his suc- cessful publicity cartoons for the Cimlerollo cam- paign, he was persuaded to enter oiM " toUl again. He and Ann often found the office the only place where they could be alone, hence they provided an antique loveseat which was tucked away obscurely under the ilesk when not in use.

" Cockrell tried desperately, but never forgot her mistaken loyalty to the student news publication, houseii in the back room of the Covered Jf ' agon building. The week-end she traveled to Tulsa with its editor made us gi e up hope on her for- e " er. One horrible day the MAGAZINE was nearly forced to seek a safer office, when the STAFF sat cross-legged on the floor playing spin-the- bottle and reading exchange jokes in a loud clear voice. It was not until the bell rang that we real- ized that an ad ertising class had been in session down the hall with a wide-open door. Mrs. Fer- ris found it ilifficult to lecture that afternoon. I5v the enil of the year, it was easy to spot a Jl ' ii( oti STAFF ' member by the hunted look about the eves.

Established on June 1, 19J0, the Journalism Press, Inc., is a self-supporting organization serv- ing as the production unit for the student publica- tions, the Oklahoma Daily, the Covered If ay on, and the Student Directory. Due to wartime limit- ations the Student Directory and the Covered Jf ' ayon were printed out of the shop this year. The affairs of the Journalism Press, Inc., are hanilled bv a board composed of six members, two of whom are students. The membership in- cludes the president of the Associateil Women Students as representative of that group, one rep- resentative from the Publication Boarti, H. H. Herbert, director of the School of Journalism, Savoie Lottinville. director of the Uni ersity Press, and T. M. Beaird, executive secretary of the University of Oklahoma Association. During the first semester Mrs. Ruth S. Ferris, of the Journalism faculty, served as secretary-treasurer, substituting for John H. Casey, professor of jour- nalism, the regular incumbent of the position. One vacancy exists on the board, that of the pres- ident of the Men ' s Government association, who in former years served as the third student mem- ber. Because of the war, the men ' s organization is inactive. II. H. Herbert . Ri rn S. Ferris JOIIK H. C.XSEV BoNME Kmciit Jo Axx GoDOws J. RITA BiCK.VELL Savoie Lotti.wille T. M.

Indicative of his well-rounded personality are his " extra-curricular " activities. He is treasurer of the First Presbyterian church, a member of the University Faculty club, a member of the Kiwanis club, member of the Chamber of Commerce and active in Boy Scout work. He serves as one of the faculty advisers of his fraternity, Acacia, and was national secretary of the fraternity in 1942. In addition to these he advises many people on filling out income tax forms. Another member of the University Publications Department is Charles Tant, superintendent of the Journalism Press and director of the mechan- ical department. Only too aware of the " man- power " shortage, Tant succeeded again this year in printing the Oklahoma Daily in the pre-war qualitv of workmanship despite the reiluction of " back-shop force " to less than half the size of former years. Since he took the position in 1928, Tant has been largely responsible for the improvements in tvpography and mechanical standards of the Dailv. The printing equipment includes two I.ino- tvpes. a large duplex flat-bed printing press, and other machines and eiiuipment used In printing newspapers. Beginning students in a journalism course in tvpographv use the mechanical depart- ment as a laboratorv. Page J 87 SOONER SHAMROCK SOONER SHAMROCK STAFF George Gkocav I „ ,. Co-tditors Joe Mehan | M.

Olson Exhaust For twenty-nine years the scope ol iournalisni of the Engineering; College was liiniteil to one annual special edition ol the Oklahomii Daily. This extra was printed on green pa]ier and ap- peared during the St. Pat ' s celehration each March. In that month of I ' Hl the College of Engineering felt that this " (lieeii Sheet, " as it was called, shoukl be augmented in the puhlishing of an Engineering Magazine. With great en- thusiasm a group of students organized with Claude Gordon as eilitor and launched a survey of other engineering magazines in the country. Ihe itlea gained I rom this survey, together with a host ot new ones, were put together in a cover bearing in bold green letters the name ol the official organ of the College of Engineering of the I ni ersity ot Oklahoma, " Sooner Shamrock. ' This first issue was a motlest attempt in journal- ism, containing only twenty-four pages and very little national advertising. However, the first issue circulation was over 800 copies, and adver- tising and circulation have grown until at present the Shamrock is published six times a year and contains at least forty-four pages per issue. This growth has led to a present tlay paid up circulation of more than 2,000 copies. It IS a credit to the Engineers that had the con- fidence anil perserverance to embark on such a venture in time of war, ami ei]ual credit shoulil go to the hard working boys who have managed through difficult days to keep alive this " ' oice " of the Engineers while papers of other engineer- ing colleges became war casualties. Betore Pearl Harbor o er forty such magazines were piMiited in the nation, but today all but twelve have sus- pended operations for the duration. The Engine School owes in no small jKirt the success of almost all such A ' cnturcs to the loyal support and intelligent advice of its faculty. This was true of the " Shamrock " . Without the help of Sam 1 lolland, the first days of the paper wouKl have been much touiiher. Mr. I lollaiul staveil M. F. WiRCES V. E.

Coir. with the hoys until the fall of 1941 when adtli- ti(jnal teaching duties forced him to cede tiie ati- visership to another ei]ually popular young profes- sor, Vester E. ' illoughhv. Since that time " Prof. " as his stuiients call him, has been the pil- lar to lean on in tryin; times. Since the birth of the " Shamrock " several new features have been adtled. Believing that out- standing grailuating seniors should gain recogni- tion through its pages, the editors published a teature known as " Men ot Might " . In each issue three B.E.O.C. ' s are fetetl, complete with pictures and articles as to his success in the Engine School. Early last year the war brought to mind the idea of keeping in touch with our former stuilents ser ' - ing their country here and abroad. To meet this need " Slip-Stick Pushers " was printed. This page features letters and excerpts of letters from Sooner Engineers in every theater of war. The present issue carries in addition to these features, articles pertinent to Engineering written by students, faculty, and leading men in the engi- neering field. The " Little Reporter " is a column eiiited by Don Pope for the purpose of keeping the Engine School posted on " goings on about town. " The topic of much discussion pro and con among the Dean, the Presiiient, and the " Lily White League of America " is the cat-like " Ex- haust, " exhaust because it ' s a lot of hot air antl smells: cat-like because it can ' t be killed.

It starteel niociestly in the form of a mimeographed publication and contained little more than a list ot the trainees antl some articles on seamanship and campus activities. Since this small beginning, the Hoist has taken on an en- graved cover, printed material and photographs to emerge as a full fledged semester publication. Three issues a year is the quota in the speeded up naval program. Distribution is mainly among the men in the unit, while the surplus copies are sent to the college authorities, the local sororities, and to other units throughout the country. Print- ing, done by the University Press, is limited to six hundred copies and the magazine is entirely paid for by advertisements. In its present state the magazine is considered tops among the campus publications — just ask the staff. Pete Woodruff left the Covered Jl ' aifon to edit the Fall Issue with Mac Fellows, an experienced journalist from the Detroit Neius, acting as man- aging editor. The Winter Issue found Louis Fleming, a student A. P. correspondent, taking- over the editorship for the next two issues with Fellows still assisting as managing editor. Lieut, (j.g.) Chalkley has been the magazine ' s " wet nurse " for the past two semesters. The features have been enlargeil to cover more things along the line ot humor than tact. In this department the publication has gaineii much ex- perience. Pete Woodruff has been a constant source of excellent feature writing, and the stories of Ernest Painter and Thomas Gunning ha e be- come a must to all reatlers ot the Hoist. -i y S v 1 First rov: (left to right) : Oagi-toerile, llilkcN.

' f U,r Emphasizing the X.R.O.T.C. in sports has been one of the major policies of the magazine and a complete coverage by a large staff has insured that those who have done something of merit will be recognized. The department was edited by Fleming in the Pall Issue, while C. A. Vicklund succeeded to the sports editorship with the Winter Issue. Norman Dagefoerde handled the scribblings re- ferred to as Art and held on to the job for three editions. Curt Guernsey, with his ever present camera, caught on celluloid the events of interest around the campus, and Bruce Miller was the person selected to assemble the material into some- thing that resembled a magazine. Pat Hickey had to sweat out the advertising, the life blood of the Hoist. He took over after a succession of less successlul business managers during the Fall Issue and stayed in charge through the next edition. Jack Golden and Malcolm Bradway took over some of the grief in the positions of circulation and production managers respectively. The men who supplied the smaller less specific yet necessary material deserve mention also. Johnny Williams, Virgil Greene, Kenton King, Bob Knisely, Buddy Baer, a nd Kelly Kaul filled in with feature and activity copy, and Klein, Richter, Tomlinson, Hibbs, Rowley, and Schaff plugged away at ads until the Hoist owned half the taxi- cabs in Norman.

The thin! ami fourth years were established in Oklahoma Citv in 1910 when the meiiical school of I ' lpworth University was taken over by the University of Oklahoma. The first degrees in medicine were conferred in June, 1911. Upon completion of the Medical School BuiKlini ' , the first anil second ears were transferred to Oklahoma Citv in 1928. Buildings consist of the Medical School; the University Hospital, with 180 beds; and the Oklahoma Ilos[)ltal for Crippled Children, with 220 beds; together with the Nurses ' I lome and au iliar ' buildings. An eighty-betl atldition to the L ni ersit ' 1 lospital, for the care of Negro patients, and a three-story addition to the University Hospital, to ser e as nurses ' housing facilities, are under construction at the present time. The hospitals and Out-Patient services are primarily for teaching purposes. How- ever, they treat indigent citizens of the state, either free or at nominal fees. Practical training in obstetrics is given in the obstetrical department of the University Hospital and in the Home of Recieeming Love, which is affiliated with the School of Medicine. Saint Anthony Hospital, which has a capacity of 300 beds, Wesley Hospital, with a capacity of 150 beds, and Central Oklahoma State Hospital, which has 2,675 beds, are also useil as teaching hospitals by the School of Aleilicine. UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL DKLAHDMA HOSPITAL FDR CRIPPLED CHILDREN The objective of the courses in the University of Okhilioiiui School of Medicine is to provide such instruction and training that its graduates will have knowledge of the his- tory and ethics of the profession of medicine and will be thoroughly grounded in general MKilicine, general surgery, obstetrics, and pediatrics. Graduates, after practical experience as interns in an accrediteil hospital, will be qualifietl to practice anywhere. The desire of the scliool is to otter theoretical and practical training which will tit its graduates to be competent general practitioners. The School is a niemher of the Association of American AMedical Colleges, and is approveil by the Council on Medical Education and Hospitals of the American Medical Association. Administration and Faculty THE DEANS Dr. Tom Low ly received his B. S. degree in 1914 and his M. D. dc.urcc in 1916 from the Uni- versity of Oklaiioma. He was appointed Dean of the School of Medicine on November 15, 1942. Dr. Lowry has served on the faculty of the School of Medicine since 1920, and holds the rank of Professor of Chnical Medicine. While a student in the University, Dr. Lowry Mas a member of Kappa Alpha fraternity, Phi Mu Alpha, Phi Beta Pi, Pe-et, the glee club, and re- ceived the first Letzeiser medal ever awarded in the spring of 1914. He is also a member of Phi Beta Kappa. He is past president of the Okla- homa County Mctlical Society anil a member of the Council of the )klahoma State Metlical As- sociation. He is a member of the American Col- lege of Physicians, and certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine. To add to his arieil list of activities, Dr. Lowry 30 years ago was a crack Sooner athlete, ranking as the fastest man on Bennie Owen ' s foot- ball teams of 1911, 1912 and 1913, and was se- lected an all Southwestern end. He was also cap- tain of the track team of 1913. After graduation, he servetl his internship in New York City, joined the Army, and was a captain in the Medical Corps stationed at an evacuation hospital in France dur- ing World War I. Harold A. Shoemaker graduated from Key- stone State Normal School in 1916. After one year of teaching he entered ' alparaiso University and received the Ph. G.. Ph. C, and B. S. degrees in 1920, after an interruption for service with the Army in 1918. He was appointed Instructor in Pharmacy at the University of Oklahoma in 1920 and has been a member of the faculty since that date. He is a nuiiilHr of Phi Delta Psi, Phi Delta Chi (Chemistry and Pharmacy), Sigma Mu Sig- ma, anil . l|iha Kappa Kappa (Medicine) frater- nities. He is also a member of Rho Chi, Sigma Xi, American Society for Pharmacology and Ex- perimental Therapeutics, and other professional imd siientilii ' organizations. He holds the rank of Professor of Pharma- cology, and was appointed Assistant Dean of the School of Medicine in 1939, and served as Acting Drill (il the School of Medicine and Acting Super- intendent of the University Hospitals for one yea r.

One of the first units of its kinti in the country, the 3865 SCU ASTU has graduated two classes of seniors and will graduate another class this June. Members of the first class, who graduated in December of 1943, now arc on active duty in various parts of the United States and overseas. Army trainees, upon successful completion of their course at the Medical School, are discharged from their enlisted status to accept commissions as first lieutenants in the Medical Corps, on the date of graduation. They then are placed on an in- active duty status while serving internships, for approximately nine months, after which a major- ity of them are called to active duty.

I he inception, birth, ;uhI growtli of a ChaiUcr is not only a lii airc of speech, but a fact as well. The writer arrived on the campus of the Univer- sity of Oklahoma in the middle of Au( ;ust, 1920. The past field of activity was Tulane University School of Medicine wliich had one of the most active chapters ol the Phi Chi fraternity. There was but one medical fraternity on the campus of Oklahoma University, and another fraternity was threatening to make its debut. In the spring of 1921 this became a " fait accompli. " A group of stuilents banded together lor the purpose of co- operation (luring theii- nieilical student da s. This study club consistetl of: J. Wemlell Mercer, ' il- liam B. .MiUl, Arthur F. 1 lansen, and 1 liram D. Moor. The tollowing yeai " , alter a i-atlier hectic cam- paign, the tollowing men were pledgetl: Wilson D. liaird, James R.

Moor, Oscar Snow P le. Dwight H. Shaw, I ' lverett ' each; and the entire group was taken into the national fraternit on November 25, 1922. )v. I. I!. Pearson, late Class Secretary, assisted l tlu riter and alumni ol Oklahoma City, installe.l a thapler. Iliiis the ciiild was born. (Iiowth at times was retarilei! through insullicieiu nourishment, but after a year ' s tiesperate struggle the group began to assert it- sell and established a delinite place on the Sooner PHI CHI campus. hirty-six students had been initiated into the fraternity by the spring of 1928. One of the charter members, Dr. Wallace B. Ilamby, continueil his interest in the fraternity, becoming Junior Associate ami Senior Associate Editor, Grand Presitling Junior, and (iraml Pre- siiling Senior. Thus the chapter has attainei.1 its lull growth and arrived at manhooii. There is but one more thing to be accomplished, namely, acquisition of a chapter house in which more of the members can li e umler one i-oof and work in closer harmon . 1 he task m ' ol ed a gi " eat responsibilitv. lioth to the students and to the grantl chapter, and the writer can recall a good many anxious moments tluring some of the precarious years of its existence. Now that the chapter is established on a lirm loundation, it is a constant source of inspiration and satislaction in having accomplished something that is worth while. J. M. TiiuRiNGKR, M.D.,rAc It is with satisfaction when I say that the gradu- ated brothers of Omicron Kappa are carr ing the lirituiples and teachings of Phi Chi to all parts of the worlil. In and out ol tiie armeil lorces we liiul that our members are lullilling their pleilges. i heir obstacles arc nex ' cr too great to be oxer- come, and as tlie days |iass In we point with pride to those who are carr ing Phi Ciii glory to our home Iront and distant battle lields.

The fraternity has yrown to he one of the largest national medical Iraternities and has alliliated chapters at all leatliiiu, medical institutions. The Alpha Lambda chapter ot Phi Beta Pi was founded at the L ' niversity of Oklahoma in 1012 and was lor ' eai ' s tlic oiiK national ori ani atioii of its kind on the cam|)us.

The local chapter has at present ninety-one active members and pledges, anil numbers amonji its alumni a major percentajj;c of the clinical fac- ulty ami several members of the pre-clinical fac- ulty. I ' rior to the war, there were ? Si) alumni in jiractice in Oklahoma. At present a lar e number of them are in the ser ices in this country and abroad. The activities in the past year have been many and varied, and as ever the Phi Bete boys have kept the fraternity dances high spots on every calendar. Ihe oli e drab and navy blue have re- placed brighter illness, but the sxndrome so path- ognomonic of Medical School parties has been manifest on each occasion.

Lacked one year on LL.B. when entering the Navy on luly 7, 1942, but had taken the State Bar Exams, and been admitted to the practice oi Icnv seven days previously. Attended Naval Indoctrination School at Noire Dame, and Reserve Midship- men ' s School at Northwestern. Com- missioned as Ensign, USNR, October 23, 1942; promoted to Lieut, (j.g.), Janu- ary 1, 1944. Destroyer duty for 22 months; recently assigned to duty as an Allied Naval Liaison Officer. Awarded the three area campaign rib- bons — silver star and four bronze on the Pacific ribbon. i3 One of the oldest American customs is griping. The early settlers, griping about the Old World, built New England. Still griping, they built the West. Sailors once griped about sailing around the Horn — and we built the Panama Canal. It has been said that improvement is born of griping. Well, ever since the Japs bombed Pearl Harbor, the Navy, too, has been griping. Now we have a greater naval strength than all the other navies of the world combined. Our super task forces have been giving the Japs some mighty bad times! But still we gripe, representing our restlessness for more than that — to put the final end to all this Jap monkey-business, soon. WE WANT TO GO HOME. Consciously or unconsciously, all of us — the home front included — are post-war plan- ners, or dreamers, as the case may be. Tis everybody ' s war. Very soon now — we hope — we ' ll have the opportunity to test those plans. That, indeed, is the great day we ' re all waiting for. The question is, what when it does arrive? I recently read an article by one of our leading columnists " urging the community ' — - -■• ' . ' ; " -. ' _■ .•«• ' develop now the proper attitude ward the re-absorption of the re- rning veterans into community 5. " That seems innocuous en ough, it one reads further and becomes vare that he really views our re- rn as that of a special social, or en psychiatric, group! Once we were just plain Joe Blow John Jones — growing up, going to hool, or working alongside the !xt man. Then we spent a few ars overseas, and we have be- me " veterans " — a community oblem requiring rehabilitation id the watchful eye! Nonsense, shall not use a more descriptive :m, lest I be psychoanalyzed and ecially instructed in the proper ilian parlance.) When we entered the service, and ir fathers, also, in the last war, few )ubted that we could soon take our aces as fighting men. As Ameri- [ns we took it for granted that each us could stand on his own two 3t and meet whatever situation might arise. Certainly, then, we can once again take our places in the civilian pattern of things, in the way of life that we still know best, with- out special dispensation. That is the very opportunity for which we are fighting. Those who see an awful " changed world " as the result of, or coincident with, our return, can find it — and toy with it — in their own lit- tle minds. To be sure, all of us should have learned a little from our past few years. We have gained experience and, perhaps, a degree of maturity. Some change, as always, is merely life itself. But we still want the same basic things for which we waged our own private little battles of busi- ness, or the classroom, before we donned the olive drab or the navy blue. Our design for living remains unchanged. —CHARLES ROBERTS is ' ■ ' • ' •-■ " . ' . SOONER ATHLETIC HEADS Oklahoma ' s wartime corps ot athletic coaches is iipholdinjtc the L ' niversity ' s reputation of producing some of the nation ' s better sports afrfrpcgations. Usually the teams arc sorely lacking in the manpower liepartment, but the mentors are working long anil arduously to moKl the respecti ' e (). U. teams into respectable Sooner representati cs anti the recorils will proN ' c they have succeeded. Coach Dewey " Snorter " i.uster, head Sooner football coach, tor the second consecu- tive year, gave Oklahoma the gridiron championship of the Big Six Conterence. Coach I.uster opened practice with a scanty crew that was a far cry from the winning team of the [previous season, but the usual Luster perseverance and hard work paid ott anil the Sooners were again the Conterence Kings. Coach Bruce Drake ' s famous Rouniliiall Runts ot the basketball court were at too much of a disaclvantage under the backboard, ami only because they were well-grounded in the fundamentals of the game iliti they turn in a creditable year in the court sport and winil up in a tie for third place in the conterence standings. John " lake " Jacobs, veteran of 23 years of coaching Oklahoma track teams, devel- oped his usual tine relay combinations and several capable performers in individual events. J ' lnsign Bill Scheerer again, lor tiie secoml year, handled the Sooner baseball nine ami i)roduceel one ot the better college baseball clubs in the country. The ( ). L ' . nine was good enough to [ilay even with some ot tlie prolessional-powered service teams in the area and was an easy winner in their only college tilt oi the 1944 ilia- mond season. Hnsign Bill laiikersley, Chiet Mulsey Sims, ' a ne Johnson and I ' aI l.indenberg, all members ot the Navy physical training liepart- ment, are to be highly commended tor their coaching efforts as the ' ment ;reil a ruggeil junior arsity football ele en through an un- defeated season.

U. 14 NUKMAN, September 3(), 1944. Oklahoma opened against the Norman Naval Zoomers, later to prove one of the nation ' s outstanding service teams, and gave the beefy pro-manned Sailors a good game before succumbing by a score of 28—14. Before six minutes of the game had elapsed, Derald Lebow, Sooner tailback, streaked over with the first touchdown, and End Dub Wooten convertetl. A few minutes later, stubby Emil Sitko, former Notre Dame back, crossed into the end zone for the Navy ' s first score. In the second period Miller booted a field goal, making it Zoomers 10, Sooners 7. The opening ten minutes of the second half saw two more touchdowns for the Sailors, the first one scored by C. J. Welsh, with Aliller missing the conversion, and the second one run over by Len Eshmont, former Fordham Hash. Miller again missed the extra point, bringing the score to Zoomers 22, Oklahoma 7. Later, W. F. O ' Brien took a 20-yard pass from Herron and boosted the score to 28-7. T. P. Goodall miffed the conver- sion attempt. With less than three minutes remaining in the game, Bobby Estep took a punt from Carl Cox on the Sooner 43 and stepped back to the Zoomer 18. Louis Dollarhide then went 18 yards for a t.d. and Don Weir conxerteii, making the final score 28-14.

In the game usually described as the tightest and most thrilling ot the 1944 gridiron season, the Sooners won a spectacular 21-14 victory over Texas A. M. in a night game at Taft Stadium. The Sooners garnered an early 14—0 lead only to see the fiercely battling T-Ags come from be- hind and tie up the contest before the Sooners could strike again in a brilliant rally that gave them the well-earned win. The Sooners marched 76 yards in a sustained drive in the first period with the versatile Derald Lebow finally culminating the long cruise with a smash over center for the t.d. Dub Wooten con- verted. Charlie Heard was the hero of the second touchdown as he took the ball on a double re- verse, shook off four tacklers and barreled 62 yards to the five-yard line. Four downs later, Lebow crashed over, and Wooten again con- verted. From then on things got warmer as the Texans started shoveling on the coal, scoring touchdowns and converting in both the second and third quar- ters to tie up the ball game at 14—14. The Sooners received the next kickoff on their own 1 1-yard line and without losing possession of the ball, marched the length of the field for the final and deciding touchdown of the game, Lebow again scoring on a short smash. It was the sec- ond time O. U. had won in five games with A. M. TEXAS U. 20 — O. U. DALLAS, October 14, 1944. The third grid- iron start of the year for the Sooners was some- thing less than successful as the powerful Long- horns of Texas again pinned defeat on the Sooners in a 20-0 debacle played in the Cotton bowl sta- dium. The Sooners opened the game in a manner that spelled trouble for their opponents as they drove from their own 37 to within inches of the Texas goal, but a smash at the line by Derald Lebow was short and the Texans took over and from then on were in charge of the ball game. With Bobby Layne doing most of the damage for the Steers, the Sooners were pushed deep into their own territory from where the Texas eleven scored their first marker on a 17-yard pass from Longhorn ace Layne to All-American end Pete Bechtol. Layne then converted. Although both teams were driving hard in the second period, neither could put together a sustained drive and the half ended with the score still 7-0 in favor of the Texans. The third quarter again had the Steers driving for scores but the Sooners staved off the deter- mined Texas tries. However, in the final canto, the Longhorns broke loose for two touchdowns and a conversion to run the final count to 20-0. The Sooners out-gained the Texas lads on the ground, and made more first downs, but had the misfortune of being penalized often, usually when threatening the opposing goal line. Too many Texas reserves spelled the difference. Page 249 The Sooiier tri- umphed over ihe Tex- .■!

November 4, 1944. in the yame that irtually assuretl the Sooners ot their seconti consecutive Big Six conference title, Iowa State ' s undeteated Cyclones were vanquished b a score of 12—7. The O. U. eleven played their best game of the season, and their aliant stand on the 4-yartl line in the third quarter was easily one of the high spots of the year ' s play. The victorv was Oklahoma ' s seventh Big Six win in a row and its eleventh consecutive conlerence game without del eat. Oklahoma took quick advantage of their tirst scoring chance, a recovered Cyclone lunible on the Iowa 25-yard line. Four plays later. Lebow slanted off eight yards into the end zone. Wooten ' s kick was wide. Lebow was injured on the play and left the Held. Later in the second period, the Sooners marched 65 yards in 11 plays for the second touchdown, Basil Sharp ripping through from the se en for the score. Gene Phelps, Iowa quarterback, ran 69 vards to a touchdown five minutes before the halt was over and Ieredith Warner converted. Iowa had a chance to win the game on an O.

With Dcrakl Lebow in for only two plays and Charlie Heard out with injuries, the O. U. ele en had to be satisfied with a ilcadlock after scoring two thirti-(|iiarter touchtlowns that hail apparently cinched the contest. Missouri scored first when a Sooner reverse went awry on the U. I . tlilrty-yard line anil Missouri recoxered. In eight plays, Paul Collins, who scored all three Missouri touchdowns, dived o er tor the score. Jim Kerekis converteil and the Tigers led 7-0. Soon after a Sooner drive carried to the Missouri two where Lebow came into the game and churned through tackle to score. Wooten converted and the halftime score was 7-7. Nine minutes after the opening ol the third quarter, the Soon- ers had scored twice with Basil Sharp cutting off tackle for one and Lebow plunging for another. Wooten converted twice. An intercepted pass and a flubbed kick set up the two Missouri scores in the last quarter. On both touchdowns the Tigers ' half- back Collins went over and Jim Kerekis, 273-pound Missouri tackle, converted on both after touchdown tries. V. H. Boudreau, a brother of for- mer O. I ' , greats of the gridiron, Raphael and Bill, and a private in the army, was on hand to watch a Sooner game last fall. Raphael was famed for his automatic toe on conversions and Bill was one of the best kickers and passers ever to play for Okla- homa. r d O. U. 20 — KANSAS LAWRENCE, KANSAS, November 18, 1944. Displaying a de astating running attack, the Oklahoma Sooners cinched at least a tie for the Big Six crown with a well-earned 20-0 triumph over the Kansas Jayhawkers. O. U. struck rapidly for their initial marker with Derald Lebow driving the final yard of a 22-yard march after ten minutes of playing time had elapsed. Neither siile threatened again until the miiklle of the third (|uarter when Lebow passeil 33 arils to Charlie 1 leard, setting up the second touchdown. I lomer Sparkman, diminuti e block- ing back, sneaked the last yard of a 78-yaril drixe. The last score of the game came with five minutes of play left when the Sooners covered 70 yards in two breath-taking plays. With the ball on his own thirty, Meason skittered to the Kansas University 17-yard line. On a bootleg carry that completely baflled the Kan- sas eleven, Billy Wright went all the way for a touchdown. After converting the first two touchdowns, end Dub Vootcn missed his third try. It was the eighth consecutive Big Six victory in a row and the twelfth straight Loop game without defeat for the Sooner grid- iron gladiators. Page 252 O. U. 31— NEBRASKA 12 OKLAHOMA CirV. December 2, 1944. Oklalioina won its second straight Big Six Hag in a row by tak- ing the invailing Nebraska Cornhuskcrs into camp by a score of 31-12. It was the first time in history that a Sooner football team had won two con- sccntive conference diadems, and O. U. backs Derald Lebow and Tommy Mason shared the scoring honors. The triumph gave the Sooners a seasonal record of six victories, one deadlock and three defeats. O. U. 6 — OKLAHOMA A. M. 28 OKL.MIO.MA CITY. November 2S, 1944. Oklahoma A. : M. ' s Cotton Bowl champions, with All-American Bob Fenimore showing the way, proved too potent for the first time in eleven years and won by a decisive count of 28-6. Fenimore didn ' t take much time in living up to advance billing as he piloted his mates for a first period 57-yard drive, personally covering the last 15 yards to pay dirt in two tries. Mack Creager con- verted and the Aggies were ahead 7—0. In the second quarter, Cecil Hankins, swift Ag halfback, fielded a low scudding kick by Lebow on the O. U. 40-yard line and Hed down the middle for the goal and another A. M. touchdown. Again Creager converted and the Aggies sported a 14—0 lead at halftime. Before Hankins ' score the Sooners had been very much in the ball game, and in two successive drives ha d penetrated to the Aggie 16 and again to the 4 before bogging down. In the second half the Aggies scored two more touchtlowns and converted both in the third quarter. Fenimore was again the thorn in the O. U. side and his interception of a Sooner pass on his own 3S set up the third Cowboy score. Jim Spavital, Aggie fullback, plunged it over. The final Aggie tally came when John Gattis, Ag center, ambled 82 yards with an intercepted pass.

BASKETBALL In the season ' s opener, an experienced Purcell Naval Cjunner crew shot down the University of Oklahoma defending Big Six Conference co- champions in the Sooner fieldhouse by a score of 39-33. The Sooners hustled all the way and drew ahead midway of the last half, but costly errors and the invaders ' more seasoned play letl to a Gunner rally the diminutive runts were un- able to halt. Harold " Scooter " Hines, tiny Sooner forward, led the O. I ' , scoring with 11 points. In the Sooners ' opening collegiate game of the season, Southern Methodist University was nosed out in a 41-40 thriller playeil at Norman. Jim Kobison, Ireshman center, lieciiied the out- come on a charity toss just 75 seconds iKtore the end of the contest. The Sooners held a 26-19 halftime lead, but a spirited Pony rally gave S. M. U. a 29—28 lead antl from there in it was touch- and-go with the game tied three times before Robison ' s game-winning tree throw. Hines was again high with a total of 15 points. Bill Whalcy, Sooner forward, made it possible for the Sooners to stop the highly-rateil Norman Na ' al Zoomers w hen he hit a long siile shot in the last lew secoiuls ol pla to gi e Oklahonia a 3 ' - 38 triumph. At one point midway of the last half, the Sooners trailed 34-26, but rallied furiously and were behind by only one point when Whaley came through. Iowa Pre-flight ' s undefeated quin- tet was too tall for the Sooner runts and won by a score of 52—40. In the first half the Sooners were very much in the ball game which was played in Kansas City, and held the Pre-flighters even until a Seahawk ralU in the closing minutes of the first half. Recovered rebounds gave the lowans most of their points, but Hines, despite his height, tallied 15 points against the skyscraper Hawks. 15 11 Whaley was again a hero when he hit a long shot in the last minute of play, this time to defeat Phillips University 44-42. The I niil boys led several times during the exciting tilt and almost scored an upset win.

Oklahoma led all the w ay in a Big Six game with Nebraska at Lincoln, but had to put on a scoring spree in the last few minutes to nip a Nebraska rally ami in 44—37. Hines ' two crip shots Iced the game in tile closing minute. Three nights later the Sooners tluplicated their win over the Cornhuskers with a spine-tingling 48—45 victory at Norman which went into two overtime periods. With less than 20 seconds left to play in the first overtime period, Hines dropped in two charity tosses to knot up the count and in the second overtime period with the score tied 43—43, Don Buelow looped in two quick ones to give the Sooners a lead they never relinquished. In another overtime game, and the seventh of the year that the Runts had either won or lost by one to three points, I larold " Scooter " Hines gave Oklahoma a 44-43 A ' ictory over the Kansas Jayhawkers. Hines laid one up thirty seconds before the end of the over- time period, and led the scoring parade for the eve- ning with 12 points. In a rough battle that saw both teams commit a total of 45 personal fouls, Oklahoma shadeil Phillips Uni- versity 39—32. The young Haymakers held the Soon- ers even on field goals but ruined their chance by miss- ing 22 of 28 free throws. The unstoppable Hines was high with 17 points. W ' eaxing a tiglit ilefense aromul their goal and han- dling the ball deltly, the Sooners deteateil Missouri ' s invading Tigers 43—27.

The Oklahomans rolled into a 12—3 lead and were never headed. Don Buelow, with 14, and Hines with 12, were the high scorers of the evening. In the game with the Kansas Jayhawkers, Harold " Scooter " Hines sprained an ankle and the Sooner hopes for a repeat of the Big Six championship and the game went glimmering with a 42—27 loss. The Sooners went scoreless for the first ten minutes and trailed at the half by a score of 17—0, rallied after the intermission, but watched the Jayhawkers pull away with compara- tive ease in the last six minutes. With Hashy " Scooter " Hines limping through the game, the Cyclones of Iowa State knocked the Sooners out of a first place tie for the conference lead in a loop tilt, rolling over O. U. at Ames, 51-43. Jim Meyers, Iowa forward, was too hot for the Sooners in the second half, as he dropped in 20 of his evening ' s total of 23 points. The first half was ragged and the Cyclones led at the midway mark, 21-17. In the second period, the Sooners rallied anil held a short lead, but Meyers took over to give Iowa the commanding lead they never had threatened. In one of the weirdest basketball games ever played on any court, Oklahoma was nosed out by the Aggies in a return tilt at Stillwater, 23-17. Coach Bruce Drake devised a strategy that almost upset the team that was later to prove itself the best in the nation. Fouling Aggie All-American center, 7-foot Bob Kurlami 18 times to hold his scoring to three field goals and ten free shots, and stalling the ball on five different occasions from (jne to four minutes, the Sooners actually letl at one time in the last half by a score of 17-16. Here the Aggies finally cracked the Oklahoma strategy and took the ball out of bounds on six of their last seven foul shots so that Kurland could score twice and Cecil Hankins once from the floor. Hines, who tlroppeii out after the first minute because of his injured ankle, was able to play nearly all the second half on one leg due to the fact that O. U. sat around on the floor nursing the ball most of the last half. A furious Iowa State rally in the final minutes of play erased all O. U. chances for another Big Six conference cage crown, the Cyclones winning 31—29. The game was close but Iowa State was too steady and too alert on rebounds. In a trip east, Oklahoma ' s crippled Roundball Runts split in games with Long Island University and LaSalle. In a game in Madison Square Gar- den, Long Island ' s burly Blackbirds defeated Oklahoma 43-33. Breaking a five-game losing streak in a game in Philadelphia, Oklahoma used superior ball-handling to ilefeat LaSalle 52—38. The high-scoring Catholic team fell behind 33—16 at the intermission anil ne er o erhauled the Landon-Fowler O. U. scoring combination. The Sooners ended the season on a sour note, losing to Missouri, 45-39 at Columbia in a game that boosted the Missourians into a third place tie with ). I ' , in the Big Six conference. The game was close through the first half, with the Tigers leading at halftime 19-18. However, a spirited Missouri rally after the intermission gave the winners a comfortable leail the Sooners never again threatened. Page 257 -, . ' f . Ifw •%ii 0r , a, Vw ' SJfe. ,- « . . - J 1 i.

The nine was coacheil by linsign Bill Scheerer, who tinalh ' , after a poor early sea- son showing, turned tlie Sooners mto a better than u ei ' age team that won six ot its last eiglit games alter winning oiiK one of its first se en. r he usual translers aiul calls to the ser ice crippled the team I rom time to time, but with a line pitcher in IJob Reese anil several gooil hitters, mainly Bobby l.step, O. L ' . gritlii on scat back, and Bill (ireenlield, able clutch clouter, the Sooners were alwa s a threat against any club and played hustling ball against e ery team they met. Ill their oiiK two games not pla ed against powerlul seixice teams, O. U. was victorious. In tile game with their lone college oppo- nent of the year, the Sooners had little trouble in giving Kansas l ' ni ersity a shellacking, 11 to 2, in a game })layed at Lawrence. Bob Reese, star Sooner slab-artist, pitchetl no-hit, no run ball lor eight innings anil retired the first 24 batters to face him in onler. 1 le came close to entering tiie baseball hall ot fame with a no-hitter, init a muHeil Il ' ball in tiie outlield in the last ol the ninth ruined his chances, as alter the bobble the Jays scored their two runs.

T Page 2S8 TRACK Coach John " lake " Jacobs, veteran ot the Oklahoma coaching staff with 23 years of service as Sooner track mentor, developed his usual fine relay combinations, but again weakness in the hurdles and the field events kept the Sooners from taking honors in the conference meets. In the Indoor Conference meet the Sooners showed a lack of conditioning and were fifth, with a total of (i points. Iowa State won the Indoor crown with 38 points, with Missouri. Kansas Uni- versity, and Nebraska following in that order. Best Sooner efforts were a second in the 60-yaril dash by Charlie Heard, and a third in the quarter mile by Dave Day. In dual competition, the Sooners were victorious in their only conference meet of the year, taking Kansas State into camp by a score of 70 3 to 60 ' .;. Against Kansas State in the dual affair, Charlie Heard was high point man with 14 points, garner- ing firsts in the ItJO-yard dash ami low hurdles, second in the 220-yard dash and third in the high barriers. Clarence N ' icklunil was lirst in both the mile and two mile. Ihe next-to-last e cnt on tlic program, tiie dis- cus, decided the meet, and Gene Sauer anti Jim Christian came through with first ami secoml places respectively to wrap up the meet for the Sooners. The mile relay, the last event, was a thrilling affair with the two teams tying. In ilual meets with the Norman Na al Sky- jackets, the Sooners split a pair ot thrilling con- tests, winning the first 67 to 64 ami ilropping the second 63 to 68. In the Von Worth Stock Show meet, the Sooners won a first place when Gene Sauer came through in the high jump, and Clarence Vicklumi in the mile and the mile relay took seconds. In the Texas Relays the Sooners turned in their best performance of the year as they won two of the six relays on the program. O. L .. with Clarence N ' icklund running beautiful races in anchoring both teams, took first in both the two-mile and the distance medley. In the outdoor conference meet. Iowa State won again but the Sooners moved up two places over their finish in the indoor, with a third place. Clarence ' ickluml was again the fair-haired boy for the Sooners. coming through with first in both the mile and two-mile. The relay quartet was second and Gene Sauer second in the discus and third in the high jump. In the State A. A. U., O. U. won three cha mpionships and tied for another. The able Sooner relay team come through for victories in the 1,600-meter and 400-meter relays, Dave Day took the quarter, and Bill Wilson tied for first in the pole vault. Page 259 DEPARTMENTAL HEADS The season for atliletics is over and although the players and the coaches have been the favored ones when it came to honor ami glory given in athletics, there are those who do much of the work and receive no decorations. These are the men " behind the scenes " who are responsible for help- ing to get the stage ready and who pull the cur- tain. Their jobs are varied and their responsibil- ities arc great. No team has finished a successful year without the whole-hearted support ot these men. It is their job to see that each tiepartment operates smoothly, to attend to the financial management of the entire department and to pub- licize the coaches and players. To these men Sooner supporters owe a debt of gratitude for their part in making Sooner athletics what it is t()ila ' . IH ' C;il v.

EDUCATION The future of the peace for which the world today is locked in mortal struggle de- pends upon the enlightenment of world ' s youth. This is your cosmic but inescapable challenge. Americans of the 20th century were reared in the basement of isolationism. The war has clubbed us into the realization that we must come upstairs into the light of one world if we expect a happy, harmonious tomorrow. A practical understanding of world economics, politics, history and geography is required of the good citizen from 1945 on. It is the stair- way from the basement. The means to this practical understanding are available to every college man and woman. They were to me, too. But I and too many like me made the mistake of regarding education in world affairs as a strictly aca- demic study. Russian history is a good example. Our lecturer had a splendid grasp of his subject and its significance. Our textbook was hon- est and incisive. Our library was jammed tii2 FDR WORLD CITIZENSHIP with authoritative reference mate- rial. Everything was right except my purpose. I stored up facts about Russia ' s past in a shapeless heap which was labelled, somewhat vaguely, " culture " . This label turned out to be a euphemism for impractical, disjointed information. There was no valid excuse for this abuse of learning. There is less ex- cuse for you if you make the same mistake. Your educational objec- tives are being crystallized in sharp, sure form by the tragedy of war. There can be no costlier lesson in the verities of internationalism. Having acquired a practical un- derstanding of the world and its problems, it then becomes your duty to use it. We have needed it much in the past and we need it now. But the need for enlightened concepts of world cooperation will reach its peak with the unconditional surren- der of our enemies. America and Americans will be in a national mood for the return to a " normal " state of affairs. They will be ripe for reaction. This is when your knowl- edge, intelligently applied, will be sorely needed to prevent a return to the basement of pre-war isolation- ism — a step into darkness which could nullify all the triumphs of vic- tory. The challenge is not to our system of education. Nor is it a challenge to our State Department or our Con- gress or our President. It is to you. Accept it and take your place in the ranks of men of good will, marching toward a durable world order.

W% Page 277 - " Rjt DELTA GAMMA In 1S74, at Lewis School, Oxford, Mississippi, Delta Gamma joined the ranks of national frater- nities for women; and it made its debut on the campus of O. U. in 1918. Its three founders were confinetl to school liuring the Christmas vaca- tion because the weather hail made the roads to their homes inaccessible, and it was then that they decided to form the fraternity to promote more social activity. Delta Gamma girls this year have been going all-out for open houses and for hockey games, iov liates ami then for late stuiiy hours, for hamburgers (always served on Ihursdays) and for cokes (any day of the week), for football and for football players. At any rate. Delta (iamm ' s girls have been going out. Kleanor Davis, prexy, can be seen almost any day pedaling across the campus on her ever-ready bicycle — that is, il some kind soul hasn ' t already borroweii it. Interest has been revived by Patsy Powell in tennis, men, hockey, men, ping pong, men — all sports, all men! The house is full of girls " keeping the home fires burning " for various soldiers and sailors (anil a marine), by Sara Sloan (dear I)a iil — the boy who makes those long, long ilistance telephone calls), Peggy Erickson, Madgel Dean Hart (oh, that Bill!!), Margery Henry, Virginia Cawthon (Bob is really a D. (i. man), Dorothy Wayland, and Betty Peg I.itchenheld (how about that |iin?). " Glama ons " have taken o er tiie house this year. The " Shorties " just don ' t have a chance; however, Pat Dobry is doing all right for herself following in the e ' er-rusliiiig footsteps of petite Mary Martha Logan. One of those happy coincidences occurred when Midge Figley finally decided to come to O. U. and then Louis Enlow, her high school flame, was sent to the South Base. Some gals have all the luck! The D. G. trio, for con- venience called Lila Lee Davis, Pat Bynum, and Veta Jo Cullen, had fun singing for the camp shows with the " O. U. Beautiful Dolls " cast. Re- member??? — when Bob Penimore, A. M. foot- ball star, came to see Veta Jo for the first time? I ' .vcrvone suddenly had to have a drink, hence the endless procession to the fountain, when the vie staved repaired for two whole weeks until some " born mechanic " tried to change a record, when the pledges came home from their walk-out?

It was the first Greek letter society for women in the South and the first strictly national women ' s fraternity. At the Chi O Corral, as it was known during Fron- tier Week, they lassoed some slick chicks this year.

Thea Ortman could be seen at e " ery football game cheering tor Charlie I lean!. Since Charlie himself couldn ' t keep Thea warm, he gave her his track blanket to keep her toes( .■ ' ) from freezing. Dot ' ills and Ann Keeshir are still Mondering if they will ever fall in low (excluding their many crushes per year). With Bonnie John- son, Dorris Stagg, Joan Irwin, Ruth Kent, Sue Walker, and Marjorie Maines flashing iliamonds around, the unattached girls of the Chi Omega house are almost outnumbered.

Black magic has been the keynote of the season at O. U. this year headed by Darla Johnston and her cdu- cateci table. But it took more than saitl magic to get Martha Colcord out of her frequent mixups with too many men for the same time.

These barefooted girls from Arkansas, Ollie May Kilpatrick, Ruth Marie Snider, and Shirley Allen pestereil e eryf)ne with their unending recjuests for cornbread ami buttermilk. Charlotte North, whose actions and wise cracks never cease to sur- prise everyone, always furnished entertainment, particularly with the aid of a much mentioned friend named Gus. It was he who sent Charley ' s roomo, PVedda Condo, roses " with ilcciiest sym- pathy " . Lura Lester and Violet Doolin easily became the most beloved girls in tlu house (they passed out bills and demerits; so they earned our sympathy at least). Journalism student. Mavis Doughty, entertained everyone with uneniling tall stories of illegal happenings encountered while searching for news in the engine building ami won- dered why friends diiln ' t believe the straight truth. Anne Lantz enlisted the aid of the household in keeping wide-eyed Carol Cotton from falling easy prey to her fathomless curiositx ' and innocence. Wanda Granot, never an easy one to admit defeat, wired a triend at the South Base when she learneti that he couUl not be reached by phone. We agree that it was a good idea, although the purpose was defeated somewhat; for it took the telegram four davs to reach him.

The Oklahoma Cit Intcrtraternity Council is composetl ut alimini representatives Ironi each ot the social fraternities at the University of Oklahoma. This council was organizetl for the purpose of protect- ing the interests of fraternities and to further the interests of education at the university. All fraternities on the campus have disbanded for the duration of the war and their houses have been leased to the university. Many of these houses have been converted into girls ' dormitories; others are used to house freshman boys. In the past these houses ha e also been used to house the army and na trainees. ActiuL: in an ai.i isory capacity, the Alumni council hopes, when the chapters are again activateil. to coordinate the relations of the frater- nities with the university for the enactment of better educational and social standards.

Rush- ing during war time has reached an all time peak. We now have twenty-five new additions to the K. A. House, namely, the freshmen ! After the war, the flower boxes and frilled curtains will be thrown on the gals ' heads, and the house will be relieved of the feminine touch. Getting on the more serious side for a moment, letters received from members who are now in the service indicate a real desire to resume their studies, as well as their fraternity affiliation. Fel- lows that left as fun loving kids will return to us as mature men with a fuller realization of the opportunities afforded them here. The alumni all over the state have offered, through the alumni association, their personal ser- vices in the reorganization ot our chapter. With such men as compose our alumni, those men that will return, and the boys that will still be in school at the close of the war, we feel that the combineil strength will uphold the K. A. tradition ol a quality traternity. John Caldwei.l Treasurer ?a 3» 286 KAPPA SIGMA On December 10, 1869, William Grigsby Mc- Cormick, John Covert Boyd. Frank Courtney Nicodemus, Eil Law Rogers and George Miles Arnold, five friends who had attended the same preparatory school in Baltimore, found them- selves classmates again, this time at the University of Virginia. This group refused to associate it- self with any other campus group and decided to found a fraternity of its own. Kappa Sigma was born. The room at the University of Virginia wherein the fraternity was conceived has been leased and now contains a memorial tablet to these five original founders. The local chapter is Gamma Kappa and was installed on the university campus on June 6, 1908. Due to the war, activities of Kappa Sigma have been curtailed and the fraternity has disbanded for the duration of the war. This year the chap- ter house has been leased to the university to help in the university war program. Until spring the house contained a group of ASTP trainees. In peace time Kappa Sigma was one of the leading houses on the campus in sports activity. Many of its past members have been star players on Sooner athletic teams. The chapter, also, has been active in intramural sports and for several seasons held the campus crown for touch football. Kappa Sigma has contributed a large group who are helping to win this war on both the for- eign and the home fronts. To these and other Americans this page is dedicated with the hope that at the end of this war an everlasting peace may be won. The Alumni representatives for the Kappa Sigmas are: C. E. Mannschott and Jack Richard- son. R. V. HuTTO, Advisor Page 287 BETA THETA PI As this, the third historic University of Oicla- homa World War II Yearbook, goes to press, we pause to pay tribute to those former stiiiients who have given their lives in tlie cause of freedom.

Near tlie close ol the school year in 1942, the fraternities on this campus xotetl to cease acti ' - ities for the duration of the war. The Beta Theta Pi chapter house has been used by the University for housing army trainees ami recently other stu- dents. Although no iletinite time for the resump- tion of fraternity activities can now be determined, plans are being prepared for the future. The local chapter, (iamma Phi, will be pre- pared to take its place in the traternitv grouji wlien conditions permit. There are only a few Betas now on the cam- pus.

David Newbv, President Pago 289 SIGMA ALPHA EPSILDN As is the case with all the fraternities repre- sented at the University of Oklahoma, Sigma Alpha Epsilon faces great problems and difficul- ties with the wars enil and the assumption of peace-time activities. During the post-war period the whole fraternity system faces the culminating part of the test it is passing through now. During the war, men who are products of this uniquely American system have constantly been in the fore front of the war eftort and the planning for peace. Before the war, the worth of the system had been proven by the overwhelming proportion of frater- nity men who have led the United States in the various aspects of her culture and civilization. Despite the fact that the war, unwittingly, has proven itself a great test of the fraternity system, we reminisce of the fraternitv spirit at the l niver- sity of Oklahoma. L ndoiilitedly e face man ' problems in re- cstablishment immediately following the war. We know that " Sig Alphs " of former years, gone to defend our country will return to renew the life they knew once before. Each month they write from all corners of the globe, speaking ot plans to return to Norman and complete the work they began in happier days. We must realize that much of the flippancy of former days is doomed in the future. eterans. once re-adjusted, will be inspired with a spirit ot seriousness. To get out into the world, become settled ilown and established. The fact that undoubtedly some sort of uni- versal military training is in the offing will force some kind of revision of our customary, pre- 1942 routine ol high school to college. Specifically, we plan extensive redecoration and enlargement of the chapter house so as to be able to accommodate a larger chapter composed of veterans and the younger men. We face problems unseen as yet but we of Oklahoma Kappa of Sigma Alpha Epsi- lon feel confident that we can meet and conquer anv (luestions that we ma - face in future vears. Mks. I ' kavcis Cochran Pjqte 290 SIGMA CHI The adage that small events may result in mo- mentous consequences is exemplitieci in the found- ing of Sigma Chi fraternity at Miami University, Oxford, Ohio, on June 28, 1855. The vote for the election of poet for an annual literary society exhibition was evenly divided among members of Delta Kappa Epsilon and as a result, six of the members walked out of the organization. This disagreement was a bond of association that led to the forming of the then new fraternity, Sigma Chi. Despite many handi- caps, the new fraternity thrived and grew from that one lonely chapter until now it has ninety- eight chapters in its membership. " Sweetheart of Sigma Chi, " the fraternity sweetheart song, is probably the best known of all fraternity lyrics. The Beta Kappa chapter of Sigma Chi was es- tablished on the campus of the University of Oklahoma on March 14, 1912, and was the sec- ond fraternity of the Miami Triad to be installed at the Uni -ersity. Today the chapter has been disbanded until the war is over. For a time the chapter house was being used to house navy trainees. Scattered all over the worlil, in nearly every rank of the armed services and every branch, are Sigma Chis help- ing to win this war. Many have been decorated, some wounded, and others have died for their country. It is to these men this page is dedicated with a hope that the time is not too far off when those Sigma Chis who left school to join the serv- ices will be back to finish their education. Don Simecheck, President Page 291 PHI GAMMA DELTA Such luxuries as fraternity life have lont since passed into a nebulous haze of fond memories here on our campus. However the question upper- most in the mind of every fraternity man here and abroad is " What are the future plans of the Greek societies here? " " When will the traternities open up? " asks every other new stuilent on the campus. That is a very bewitchinf; question and many irk- some problems go with it. No one is justified in saying when or what problems will beset the ac- tion. We do know, ho e er, that many fellows wish them back. Such problems as (1) Iany of the houses will have to be remodeled, (2) the release of the houses, and (.3) the coordination of oKIer eterans A ith young freshmen, and man other seemingly minor pit-tails, ' et everyone knows that the life- blood ol the college Iraternity is the initiation ol new men. During the past year the Phi (iamma Delta house has been leaseil In th e I ni ersity, shelter- inii ;i mixed group ol Ireshmen, eterans, ami upper classmen. Our house is still in excellent condition, and being practically paid for, the chap- ter is in high spirits for re-opening. Despite hell, high water, Hitler, and Hirohito, the iift -nine of our se enty-li)ur chapters ha -e retained their acti e status. Many achocate a grantl return of fraternities with a possible expansion ot the present eighteen Greek letter fraternities on the campus. I low- ever, with the average of fifty to sixty men per traternit ' it was consitleretl that the houses «ere lull. If the post-war membership exceeiis that amount, annexes will undoubted!) Iia e to be obtained, and with the return of men who have been in other schools new Greek organizations will make their appearance. Hence with more men anti more fraternities a greater amount ot social activity will no doubt appear. All in all, fraternities will do a great ileal more of making men develop self-confidence with tlie realization that the ' will lia ' e a sohd biotherliood ot lellows behind them.

For it was on this December clay, nearly a hundred years aij;o. that the institution ot Phi Delta Theta was conceived. And today it has grown in the hearts of its mem- bers as one ot the most cherished possessions ot lite. To date it has lived through three wars and is in the midst ot its fourth. Yet it remains un- shaken and rises above the turmoil of nations to represent one of the symbols of treedom that its members and fellow men tight to preserve. When in 1943 traternities were ordered from existence on the campus, the Phi Delt house was leased to the Na y for the establishment of a " Cailet Club " to entertain the ()ung " ' ur hawks ' " of the Navy in tlieir leisure hours. Am! tiie ser ices of our be- lovetl " Mother A. " housemother at Oklahoma Alpha, were turneil to this wartime project, until peace once more blankets this world of ours. Ikit still through this, the destiny of Phi Delta Theta shines with a never dimming brilliance that reflects the happiness and strength ol brotherhood that the post-war Phi Delta Theta will know. Ami for its members it silently waits until they return to the uni ersities ami colleges all over America, in a brighter, happier and peaceful world for which they fought and gave their lives, so that their sons might know the joy of living in freedom, and experience the friendship ot man. m the bond of Phi Delta Theta. Hugh v. McDERMon Advisor Page 293 SIGMA ALPHA MU It is the prayer of Sigma Alpha Mu fraternity that the time will not be distant when there will be peace on earth, good will toward men. Sigma Alpha Mu dedicates this page in the Sooner yearbook to the memory of Captain Ed- ward M. " Eddie " Weiss, the first member of Sig- ma Alpha chapter of Sigma Alpha Mu to make the supreme sacrifice for his country in this war, who was injured on September 16, 1944, in Aachen, Germany, and died September 21, 1944. Captain Weiss commanded a rifle company in the Ninth Infantry Division and was in the first wave of troops to enter Belgium. He entered the army as a private, enlisted in February, 1941, and within a month after his enlistment, he had been advanced to sergeant, and soon after was sent to Officers ' Training School at Fort Benning, Geor- gia, where he received his second lieutenant ' s com- mission, later being elevated to the rank of cap- tain. Captain Weiss was graduated from Culver Mil- itary Academy in 1926 and was a member of Sig- ma Alpha chapter at the University of Oklahoma. Captain Weiss is the brother of Lieutenant Cier- trude Weiss of the Army Nurses Corps; Mrs. A. A. Schreiber, Cleveland, Ohio; Mrs. Leo Oppen- heim, Oklahoma City; and S. S. Weiss, Cleve- land, Ohio, the hitter being a former Sooner. t ' Ai ' iAis Edward M. W ' kiss Page 294 Phi Kappa I ' si was organizcil at JcHcrscJii C j1- lege, Pennsylvania, February 19, 1852. The Oklahoma Alpha chapter was chartered in 1920. Its house, now leased to the University, is located at 720 Him Street. ' irtually all initiates of recent years are serving their country in the armed forces in various thea- tres of operations. When Oklahoma Alpha received its charter twenty-four years ago, the memhership of the national fraternity was approximately 20,000, and chapters hail been located in all sections of the country. Today there are 52 chapters with ap- proximately 25,000 members; 6 chapters are located in the south. 22 in the cast, and the re- mainder in the middle west and far west. Outstanding Phi Psis in the first great war in- cluded President Woodrow Wilson, General Tusker H. Bliss, Chief of Staff, Brigadier General William L. (Billy) Mitchell, Major General Frank Parker, Colonel William J. (Wild Bill) Donovan, and A. Mitchell Palmer, Attorney General. Hundreds of lesser-known members served their countrv with heroism and distinction. PHI KAPPA PSI At the beginning of the present war, members of the fraternity again rallied to the colors. Sev- eral members of the Norman chapter who left the L niversity at the outbreak of war, and some of the chapter ' s alumni members, have been reported killed in action or missing. Since the record of all casualties suffered by Oklahoma Alpha is incom- plete, no names will be published at this time. The national fraternity ' s list of men in service becomes ever longer as the grim global encounter lengthens. It is estimated that the number of members in serv- ice is in excess of 8,000. Phi Kappa Psi generals are Voorhis, Terrell, Gilbert, Randle, Longfel- low, Tompkins, and Williamson. The wartime address of the Oklahoma Alpha chapter of the fraternity is 518 National Bank of Tulsa Building, Tulsa, Oklahoma. The post-war plans of Phi Psi are quite exten- sive, with more suggestions coming in daily from members all over the globe. Beginning the post- war program will be the necessity of making changes on the house — painting, plastering, and remodeling. Charles L. Foll.wsbee Page 295 PI KAPPA ALPHA After a hectic interlude on the blootiy hattle- Helcls of the Civil War, six friends who had been classmates at Virginia Military Institute found themselves once again reunited. Three were cadets at V. JNI. I. am! the remaining three were students at the L ni ersity of Virginia. Wishing to continue their fellowship, they establisheti a fraternity known as Pi Kappa Alpha on March 1, 1868. The chapter on the campus of the Unixersity of Oklahoma was established September 24, 1920, and was designated as the Beta Omicron chapter. It is now one of the seventy-six chap ters which comprise the fraternity ' s 22,000 members. Mem- bers of the chapter wlio have gained national or international lame are: Joseph Benton, Metropol- itan Opera singer; Lynn Riggs, playwright: Major Ted Beaird, secretary of the O. U. Alumni Asso- ciation; and Dean A. B. Atlams, dean of the Col- lege of Business Administration at the Unixersity. Since the close of school in Ma of 194.3, the men of Beta ( )niicron are scattered tar and wide by the lortuncs ot war. A monthly group letter is written by the chapter ' s house motliei ' , .Mi s. 1 1. A. Nedniii, and iiiallcd to each member. In this a the membei-s keep up with other memJHrs all oxer the world. Each ol the members writes in all the latest news about himself and this news is assembleil anil printet! by Mrs. Nedom. It helps to make each member just a little more anxious to get the war oxer and tn once again open the doors ol the eha|ner house. .Mrs. II. A. Niixim lldiisciniitlur Page 296 ACACIA Fraternity men at the UnivcrsitN dI ( )klalii)iiia on June 30, 1943, voted to dishaml fraternity functions for the duration of the war. But what about after the war? Letters from former fraternity men who left college for the services ne " er fail to mention tlnat they are look- injj; forward to returning to their Iraternities when the war ends. The fraternities otter a tan- gible grasp on civilian life. As a result, there is the possibility that fraternities will experience such a boom that there will be the necessity of taking over rooming houses as annexes tor o cr- Howing membership. Will the veterans who come to college and are not already fraternity members want to join? Some will and some won ' t. University stutients are a cross section of the general population. More evidence is piling up all of the time that more is to be expected of post war fraternities than ever before. This is the judgment of edu- cators, alumni, undergraduates anil men and women in the armed ser ices. Man ' of the things which were formerh tolerated will not " .2:0. " All forms ot hazing involving mental or phys- ical torture, inckiiling paddling, will be banned officially and absolutely by all colleges antl univer- sities throughout the country. Offenders will be ilisci[)lined ii the reijuest of the National Inter- fraternity Conference which met in New ' ork City, November 24-25 of last year is followed. There are at the University nineteen fraterni- ties with properties valued at $9,000,00(1 anti with a normal membership of 900 men. These are the organizations which weathered the depression when a score of tiie smaller Greek letter groups once existing on this campus were swept into ob- livion. Altogether, tliere will undoubtedK be a place in fraternity ranks for every student wanting to join; a great opportunity for fraternities to serve in veteran readjustment to civilian life, a boom in fraternity membership along with the expected post ar boom in university enrollment; and after that pent-up surge a useful future for the Greeks tied in closely with the future of the University. IIAroid Cooksey, .Advisor Page 2 7 ALPHA TAU OMEGA ' ■A " f I J2l Alpha Tau Omega was the first Greek letter college fraternity organized after the Civil War. It was founded at Richmond, Virginia, on Sep- tember 11, 1865, and the first chapter was estab- lished at the Virginia Military Institute at Lexing- ton, Virginia. Its founders were three young Confederate sol- diers. Their prime objective was to restore the L ' nion, to unite fraternally the young men of the South with those of the North and to foster a Christian brotherhood dedicated to the task of achieving and cherishing permanent peace. They found their inspiration in the sentiment: " No North, no South, no East, no West, But one great nation. Heaven blest. " Now the whole fraternity system itself, uniijuely American idea, is going through the most critical phase of a test pcrioti that began witli the upsetting effect that the war had upon the American educa- tional system. All indications are that this system has been worth while. One need only look to the roster ot . merican leaders and his thoughts are contirmeii heyonii the shadow ot a lioubt. With the cessation of hostilities and the re- sultant return of veterans, we ol the local A. T. O. chapter know that we shall face the same problems as the other fraternities ' local chapters. Doubtlessly, we all agree that the readjustment of veterans is the greatest of these. We feel that a fraternity offers one of the best ways ol re- adjustment to civilian lile. The veteran can rind manv fraternity men returning from war who will have shared many of his experiences. These, plus boys too young to have fought, will produce a group that will be truly representative of Amer- ican post M ' life. Rm.I ' M I,. Rei-ce, . iK i-Di Pag9 298 DELTA TAU DELTA A The local chapter oi Delta Sigma Delta, lound- cd on the campus in 1919, became the Delta Alpha chapter ot Delta Tau Delta in 1922. This was largely ilue to the ettorts of Joseph A. Brandt, tormerly presitlent ot the imixersity. The fraternity has always had a specific goal or duty in mind. The founders at Bethany College, West ' irginia, in 1859, were striving to build a fraternity that would reflect the cosmopolitan spirit in fraternity life. When the Delta Tau Delta fraternity amalgamated with the southern artistocratic Rainbow Society of the University of Missouri in ltS86, the goal in mind was to bring about better coordination between the universities of the North and South. The Delta Alpha chapter ceased activities in July, 1943, in compliance with an Interfraternity Council ruling closing all University of Oklahoma men ' s social fraternities until a time when activ- ities could be resumed without lowering the stand- ards of the fraternities. When the fraternities commence activities again the Delts plan to uphold as always the prestige which they have gained on the campus and throughout the state. They plan to maintain the record of high schol- astic achievement which the members of former years established as a " Delt Tradition. " The paramount post-war duty of Delta Tau Delta will be to the men who helped make it pos- sible tor fraternities to exist In a free country. The fraternity plans to join whole-heartedly in the effort to help the returning servicemen in re- adjusting themselves to civilian life. Delts distinguishing themselves antl their fra- ternity all over the world are looking torward to their return to the " Delta Shelter, " the English- stvle manor on Elm Street. Savoie LonisviLLE, .Advisor Pago 299 PHI KAPPA SIGMA One of the first to enter the service was Otto Crill, class of ' 41. Lt. Crill has recently returned after two and a half years in New Guinea. Mar- vin Breeding, our last president, is now a lieuten- ant in the Field Artillery somewhere in Germany. Lt. Ted C. Fintleiss has returned to the States. Among the Piii Kap parties, which had become a part of the campus social tradition, was their Frontier Dinner heki at the end of the University- sponsored Frontier Week. The annual Joe Col- lege Dance, held in the University Club, ami the Fall Formal Dinner Dance were other well- remembered Phi Kap functions. When the war has endeil and the Skull I louse once a ain opens its doors for the wearers of tlie Maltese Cross, these things will return, along with those things which all of us, who had our years at O. U. brought to a rather abrupt end, consider a part of our college life. It is hoped that before many more editions of the SooNF.R go to press, those of us who were unable to finish our stay at the Uni- versity can once again be reached at 736 Elm. For those who will lollow us we sincerely hope that we will ha e finally maile the motto " Making the world safe for democracy " a dream come true. When once again we can sing all of the songs that the Phi Kaps love so well we will consider that the job is well done anil that we ha e done our part to uphoKl the ideals set lorth in our obligations and our c(jnstitution. Phi Kappa Sigma, one of the oldest of the Greek letter social organizations, was founded at the University of Pennsylvania on October 19, 1850. Since its inception nearly a century ago, it has withstood the strain ot wars, depressions, and numerous changes in government, ne er s cr ing from the ideals set down by its founders, among whom was Alfred Victor DuPont of tiu famous DuPont family. Omicron chapter at the University ot Okla- homa was charteretl February 4, 929. when the Skull House was opened for occupancx. The house, one of the newest antl most beautiful on the campus, gained steadily in prestige and repu- tation. In the fall of 1943 it was leased to the Uni ersitv as a residential hall for independent women under the supervision ol Motlur Clark, who has been with the Phi Kaps since tlielr days as a local fraternity on the campus. Of particular pride in Omicron chapter is the job that former actives are iloing in the nation ' s war eftort. They are ser ing in e er branch of the armed forces and the merchant marine. Man - ha e been decorated, some have made the suprelne sacrifice. Hk. ic-ior II. K I II Advisor Page 300 Tlurc iiuist never be a World War Three. That was not meant to be poetry or a little jingle, easily renumbered. That is the most serious problem facing the college man aiul woman of tomorrow. There is no other problem that can not be solvetl. The race problem, unemplo nient, government, crime, everything else can be worked out to a happy conclusion, unless we have another World War. Another war would not only de- stroy whole nations anei races, it would destroy all faith and honor ami decency and would leave the world in a state of chaos that could never be en- tirely repaired. This is the danger above all others that the college man and woman of to- morrow must guard against. In this year of 1945 the old world lies in frag- ments as a result of this devastating war. There is a new world to be created which will require the highe st possible t ' pe of leadership in this country to work with the leaders of other nations of the worlil to create an organization which will estab- lish an enduring peace and bring about world cooperation to that end. It will be the duty of the men and women of tomorrow to carry on, maintain and perfect this world organization and world cooperation. Peace, like liberty, must be fouirht and worketl for constantlv. It is not auto- DELTA UPSILDN matic or self-perpetuating. With peace, the future of this country antl the world has amazing and unlimited possibilities. America, especially, has the capacity for prosper- ity antl well-being that staggers the imagination. But she will never realize her ilestinv until the majority cultivate the habit of thought. The fu- ture, therefore, depends largely upon the preser- vation and protection and continueil growth of our two greatest institutions, the school and the church, because they are the necessary background of a riglit-thinking citizen. College is the finest place to learn to know ami like people and this is a must if we are to plan a worlci hicli includes them all. Too much of our planning has included onh those we know . Place service above every other consideration. We are learning these days that high service is immortal. If money is your life motive, the joke is on you. Financial security will follow naturalK as we learn to serve. Finally, if you want to build a better workl. start ■ith yourself. There is but one method and it is as simple as it is old: the (iolden Rule. It has never been uni •ersally tried antl the world will ne er be what we all want it to be until it is. Eugene Kendall, Advisor Page DELTA CHI The Oklahoma chapter of Delta Chi was estab- lished in April of 1938, to become the youngest of campus fraternities. Accepting for member- ship only men of character and quality, Delta Chi progressed rapidly in many fields of endeavor. 1 he chapter has already Mon the national Delta Chi scholarship award for its general grade aver- age, which at times has been the highest among all campus iraternities. Delta Chis have served prominently in Interfraternity Council work, Galen, Pe-et, St. Pat ' s Council, Who ' s Who, Phi Beta Kappa and other outstanding organizations. The Delta Chi national fraternity was the first to abolish the use of Hell Week am! the local chap- ter entirely eliminatetl the use of the pledge paiklle. Like otlier campus fraternities Delta Chi sus- pended its activities when school closed in the summer of 1943. Young men who hatl learned tolerance, cooperation, and brotherhood in Delta Chi volunteered to fight and even die to eliminate those e il forces which challengetl the rii ht of all mankind to li e in tolerance and cooperation as brothers. All over the world Delta Chi ' s are prLi ini - tor God to speed the day when their liuties will be done.

Two brothers, Ensign Daniel Seid and Ensign Charles M. Stem, the latter aboard the L ' .S.S. Oklahoma, died in action on that memorable December 7, 1941, at Pearl Harbor. Another brother, Jacques Saphier, U. S. Marines, was the first American officer killed at Guadalcanal. Their deaths served to strengthen the bonds of fraternalism. With clenched fists we recall that these boys went to war, not with fanatical theories of race superiority, of any special " place in the sun, " nor any desire to rule the world by fire and sword. They and their brothers have gone to fight for something greater, for decency — for loved ones — for country, not as some warlike sym- bol, but for this one great refuge in the world, where the humble, the meek and the righteous may live and work in peace and security. It is this same sense of decency and honor, this firm union of brotherhooti that bimis us together in our fraternal ties. Everyone can not fight, but those of us at home will do our utmost, not only towards the greater war effort, but towards the preservation of those things for which these youths gave their all. We shall not only preserve the phvsical fraternity properties, but the true fra- ternal spirit, so when our boys come home to a PI LAMBDA PHI free, decent and clean country, we can greet them proudly and say, " Welcome home, buddy! Well done ! " " Certainly I am going back to school; that is one of the things we ' re fighting for. " Thus did an undergraduate member of Pi Lambda Phi ex- press himself in a letter home from his post in the Pacific. Those words, we also believe, represent the inner unexpressed thoughts of many service men. Through such young men has the college fraternity gained stature in World War II, among those groups which have materially aided the war effort. Many fraternities have sacrificed their existence for the furtherance of our total participation in war. But we pledge to the young men of tomor- row. " We are just being Americans, we give our all now, but tomorrow will bring a restoration of fraternal life, itself a svmbol of the American wav. Oklahoma Iota chapter of Pi Lambda Phi has initiated 210 men. Of that number. 145 are now in the armeil forces. The first man initiated is now Commander Jess Goldfelder, U. S. Navy; the last is Harold Anson, in the V-12 at the L ' ni- versitv. Thus the span of years from 1922 to 1945 finds us encompassing the years with partici- pation in scr ice. M. S.

Ahhough Residential I lalls for Women ha e been in operation on the eanipus of the University of Oklahoma since 1926, it was not until war condi- tions caused the housing situation to become seri- ous that the University assumed the responsibility of providing housing for students on a large scale. The office of Student Housing was set up dur- ing the past year with iMr. L. L. Adams as Direc- tor. Mr. Adams has charge of Civilian Student Houses untler Dr. Couch ' s supervision, and of P ' ederal Dormitories under the supervision of Mr. Walter Kraft. Mr. Atlanis is also responsible lor the t« ) commissaries which the L ni ersit main- tains to lurnish food and nther supplies for the houses and ilming halls for both civilian tudents and Army and Navy trainees. Mrs. Dorothy Detenbaugh, Dietitian, lias the super ision ol tlie six dining halls maintained for ci " ilian stuilents antl for Army and Na y trainees. The dining halls operated for the use of men are: Jefferson Commons anil Franklin House for civil- ian students, ami Wootlrow Wilson Cafeteria for Army and Navy trainees.

But with the changes brought about by the war, the city of Norman hatl to take care of personnel of the Naval Air Station and Naval Air Technical Training Center, and their families. The influx of people into Nor- man was so great that there was not sufficient housing available to take care of students. Then many traternities. their members haxing entered military service, made their houses avail- able to the University for the use of the civilian students. Fraternity houses which were leased for the use of men students are Acacia, Kappa Alpha, Sisrma Chi. Pi Kappa Alpha, and Phi (iamma Delta. Those made available tor women students are Alpha Tau Omega, Delta Tau Delta, Delta L ' psilon. Phi Kappa Psi, Phi Kappa Sigma, Sigma Alpha Iu, ami Sigma Alpha l:lpsilon. Jefterson I louse was built in 1942 and used by civilian students until taken over by the govern- ment for Navy trainees. It was re-occupietl b civilian men students in December of 1944. Franklin House, 564 South Boulevard, was bought by the University to be useti as a dormi- tory for freshman men. Both Franklin ami Jef- ferson Houses have recreational ami library facil- ities, and are e(]uippeil lor the comfort and con- venience of men students. These two liouses are under the supervision of married faculty members. Other houses for men are the seven dormitories constructetl by Feileral Public Housing, and the administration biiiitling known as Woodrow ' il- son Center which contains, in aiitlition to the cafe- teria, an auditorium and otlier recreational facili- ties. The Federal Dormitories have been used to house Army and Navy trainees. As the need of the military services for these housing units de- creases, they will be turned over to the University to house veterans ami civilian stutients. Through a State Supreme Court ilecision and action by the State Legislature, the way was opened during this school year for the University to buikl more dormitories on a selt-liquitlating basis. Architects are working on plans for a girls " dormitory for about 400 girls to be erecteti as soon after the war as labor ami materials become available.

HESTER HALL The school year ol 1944-45 at Hester 1 lall was an exciting, busy, and happy one for 165 coeds. To prove that Hester was an excitini place, take the nights that Bobby Iorgan and iVIarilyn ' ick received calls from their men half way across the United States ... or the nights Dorothy Drummer, Elizabeth Bernard. B. J. Swanson or Anna Ilinkle came in with a sparkler on that cer- tain finger. There was excitement too when Annetta Lee ' s " J. W. " and " Tommy Thomas " , " all state football player, " arrived after months in the service. Yes, there were busy people too! Enola Mae Fielder and Jean Adams served as presidents de- spite their telephone calls and dates. Some people studied too — ' cause " Margie " Walker did us honor by making Phi Beta Kappa. Mrs. Wells, our business director, and Mrs. Penoi iliti more than their part to make things click. The office girls did their part to see that each girl received her telephone call. The year was a happy one, too! Both the Fall and Spring Formals were huge successes with every girl looking like a queen and " getting the best rush ever. " Dorothy Reeves smiled the whole year because ot her " Don " , his leaves, letters and phone calls. Charlene Armstrong settled ilown to one man during most of the year — namely, Herbert Steves. Frankie Rice and her " Tommy " couUl be founil almost any day in Hester Hall li ing room and Phyllis F ans ami " Casey " ei ' e the same way at the Library. Charlotte Cruse and Alene Ldsel beamed the day they got those certain frat pins and even wore them at night. Jan Kimbley had so many elates with " Red " Griffin that most ot tlie girls at Hes- ter knew him as well as the girl next door. Betty Theck and lone Aftholder kept the entire dorm awake at night yelling " Charge " as they hit third Hoor. Meg Trimble wasn ' t very happy after " Jim " left, but kept her sweet smile. Lou, Joy, Betty. Mary Joe ami all those girls with two rings on third linger left hand kept the post-man busy with letters to go overseas. Thus the year ended at Hester Hall. Page 310 I ' rc»idci!l .

HOUSE Most any time ot the day it one shoiilil happen to walk into the sun porch, he would find a bridge game in session. Betty Hetzler is usually the instigator of each game and Sug Appleby, the pride ot the A.T.O.. is always willing to make a fourth. Of interest to all girls is the Sucker ami Stinker list. Not long ago Jo Goldsmith. Frankie An- drews anil Minnie ' ester were the suckers (the stinkers will remain anonMnous ) hut tlie list is now satily depleteil as Jo is now Mrs. Hersch 15ules, and Frankie is steadying it with Johnny. Laundry service to all the A.T.O. house isn ' t what it once was. To Virginia Vines ' surprise, her hunulrv containetl one pair of men ' s white shorts. What the girls wonder about is how Ann El- more manages to keep that 3 point average along with a steady, and just who is this ideal of Prances Carol ' s called Thunk. After Margie Ciorton Karch iiad seen tliree of her room-mates marrieil, she decitleil to take the fatal step herself. Odd coincidence, wasn ' t it? The steatlies always make a rush for the pri- vacy of the dijn . . . it ' s usually a tie between Rutli Stalioril ami Hill Flliott, and Tina Niell and Max Cuher. Up until the Arnu left, Jack Roberts and Doro- th le McClure .spent all their spare time in Ard- more but now, to their sorrow, they ' re finding out what Norman ' s really like. Tough I Loretta McCary donned a ring, thiril linger, left liaiul, Ciiristmas and now spends her time thinking ol lici- Bill. Pattv Paul, hailing from Texas, always man- aged to keep a Texan among those on her list alrlio " she ows she likes ( )klahoma i est. Ihere ' s ne er a ilull moment at tlie house due to the inexhaustible energy of Hett Barton and Bettv Jo ' aughan, and also to the ability ol Mary Hickman and Mary Clark to give out with those true incidents which are stranger than fiction and better than the latest jokes.

Pagm 314 BETA HOUSE Last September the Beta girls were beginning t J womier whether or not they were going to have a housemother. Mrs. Ted Lecieen came to their rescue, temporarily ser ing until November, when Mrs. Lucie Daniel Lade, known as " Mom " , be- came the official hostess. The girls ' lirst social success was the ( )pen- house on September 17. when they became ac- quainteil with the Navy and the " Eds " on the campus. During Frontier Week, the girls enter- tained with another Upenhouse. Then came the big Christmas dinner party, given by Mrs. Lade and the grailuate counselor. Miss Xelda Pearson. But all the girls agreed that the dance, November 17, and the Spring Formal, May 5, were the best times of all. When seconti semester began. Miss Catherine Scallon became graduate counselor. New officers were elected. J ' Val Symonds became president; Dorothy Dobyns, vice-president; Melva Loftin, secretary; Maxine Reeves, treasurer; Wanda Dcvary, reporter; Bobbie Crow, chaplain: Sue Sittel, Helen Stair, and Betty Mills, floor repre- sentatives. The Beta House is prouii of the fact that for the first semester they had the highest grade aver- age of all Freshman houses. Five girls were asked to pledge Alpha Lambda Delta. They were Elizabeth F rwin. Louise Leonard. Gloria Green, Margaret Tate, and Thelma Dickey. Couples seen mighty often around the Beta Barn were Pris Johnson and Joe Gibbs, Sue Sittel and Dean Brown, Wamia Devary and Tom Baker, Kay Dennis and Chuck Dozios, J ' ' al Symonds and pin-mate Tom Johnson. Those girls found at bridge tables were Elaine Nolan, Barbara Adams, Ann Price, Lettie Griswold, Thelma Dickey, Suzie Kitchens, Camille Mason, and Peggy Brown. President . .

Page 315 DELTA TAU HOUSE The Delta Tau Delta dormitory was smaller than most of the freshman girls ' houses on the campus and therefore aHortleti more opportunity for closer companionship ot the girls. riie housemother was Mrs. Phyllis Mrwin. and the officers were president, Jeanne Ann Follett; VMce-presidcnt, Stana Lou Dresher; secretary, Jackye Lou Hunter; treasurer, Billie Louise Big- h : Y.W.C.A. representative, Roberta Paul; intramural representative, Lou West; War Coun- cil representative, LaV ' erne Hanewinckel. The two most important events of the semester were a Hallowe ' en party and a Christmas pajama partv. There were many other pajama parties hut this one held special significance because it was the last partv of the ijirls before the end ot the semes- ter. These girls " changeil horses in the middle of the stream " by mo ing to the Kappa Alpha house. Faxorite activities of the girls were visiting be- fore study hall, playing bridge, and listening to everyone ' s letters from boys overseas. Some outstanding events of the year were an Open 1 louse, a bridge tournament, knitting of squares for the Reil Cross, and the election of jackye Hunter as Secretary of the Freshman Class. jane Freeman headed the list ot " en- gageti girls " .

Jimmie ' alker nablieil herselt an ennayenient ring from her Bill, " (iearg " Cuiest anil " Mack " MacKeag kept the house supplieil with odil creatures which they preterreil to call men, ami to keep the trail hot to the " Dirty Hiril " . Doris Buttrv became inimitable ith her taxorite sayinjf, " I want to go with a man who loves me for my intelligence. " Lee Davis couUin ' t make up her mintl, but it ' s evident that Alexander (iraham Bell owes the girl a lot. He only imenteti the telephone; Davis ' s admirers supporteil it with their nickels. It is rumored that in future years the halls of D. U. will resound with Spike Jones ' version of " Cocktails for Two " , coming from Ida Robinson and Margery Dixon ' s room, ' aymoth Nail ' s charm and sophistication rewardetl her with seventeen-year-olds. Jim ' s admiration for Nita Pratt caused her to blossom out — literally. Nita is seriously considering entering the florist profes- sion. Room six, with its Mary Helen Kirkpat- rick and Ruth Hite was known as the big tlogs ' dump, since it holds both president and vice-presi- dent of the house. Joanie, house mistress and daughter of the house mother, Mrs. Maxwell, gained her reputation as guardian of the sunroom. Donna Howard, house counselor, fountl herself confronted various times with the remark, " Don- na, I ' ve got a problem. " Robin Yarmuk ' s mathe- matical genius made her a necessity, especially around exam time. Noises resembling a stam- pede may be attributed to those gay parties on third.

More than halt of the house was made up of transfer students, but with the help of the old- timers the problem of learning their way around was solved. In November our first social func- tion was held. It was a Harvest Moon party and the house was very appropriately decorated with bales of hay. corn shocks and a big yellow moon. A scavenger luint was won by Joan Jenner, Joan ' alden anil their dates who found three W. A. C. ' s from Company B for their beeswax. Two nights before Christmas, a Christmas party was held when we bade goodbye to Mother Woods who was leaving us for New York. Mrs. Down- ing served as house mother the remainder of the semester. Second semester the traiiitional beads were hantleil o er to Marion Wheeler. Several social events were held including an Open House for the March of Dimes, and a dessert for our dates before going to the All-Independent Dance. In between social events excitement was always brewing such as the time the much talked of Harvey C. called Gerry Wiles after having waited so long for that furlough. Valentine ' s Eve found Lawson I louse converted into a veritable flower shop, but no bouquet could compare with that one sent to Mary F ' ran Antrim by Capt. Clark. Fran lones, Jo Spielman anel tlicir Marine dates took advantage of the big snow and had a snow ball fight refereed by the entire house. ' incent Price, our house beauty, besides claiming the beauty title is the onlv girl member of St. Pat ' s council. Jo Swenson and Jean Dutton, our house artists, proved rlieir talents by making portraits ot all the girls ill their spare time. Ol 1 KIRS Firil Siiiiislir SifonJ Siinfslrr I ' l t iiifi»t .

Ami gatl, those impressionistic ilrawings picturing the " No Cigarettes Totlay " sign perched precariously above a Mortar and Pestle which Patty Shattuck tells us represents the soul ot roommate, Belle Standiler. In the base- ment. Sue Grain practices pool to make up her " ilcticiencies " (ask her about them I ), while Mari- sue Mount hinders all progress by yelling " lights, action, etc. " in true drama-student fashion. Amid all the confusion, Marcella Fees and Levita Bol- linger show dead-eye ability with whi .zing ping- pong shots. In the adjoining tiark room, Dennie Terrel indulges in a little blackmail by developing candid shots of Veronica Cook, Rosalie Steele and Nell Cleveland who despite her threats snared left-hand sparklers. In the Phi Kap lounge the feminine equivalent of a bull session, with Dee Chambers dropping stitches as she otters help- ful ?) suggestions to card sharks Pauline Michel- son and Cash who are trying to subdue the un- beatable combination of Jean " Braintrust " Cham- bers and Mary Liz " Portia " Cox. F " urther proof of the feminine element is the hair drier encasing the curls of Louise Caldwell and Sue Walker do- ing the old one-two-three bend routine. Iris Cal- vert and Virginia Sparkman argue on the merits of the Army and Navy while Donna Jean Doug- las and Mary Jon Johnson camouflage beiis with woolly animals so that even Mother Clark won ' t notice that the beds are unmade.

Page 319 fiDn PHI PSI HOUSE I here was a time when you coulil pass by a fra- ternity house and say, " Ah, a house for bovs. " Not so now, however. For instance, if you happenetl to saunter into the Phi Psi house this year, the first indication vou would have that there have been some changes made would be the stack of letters on the hall table addressed to Elaine Anilerson. Your suspi- cions beinc: thus arousetl, you take a peek into the lixini room just in time to hear Bobbie Harvey tcl! a boy, " But you ' re too young to get married. " From the piano come soft strains of music by Marie Sykora, or it might be Fayne Bumgarner swinging it out. Be the music soft or loud, however, it is drowned out by a clamoring from abo e. You wouUl probably hear someone say, " Tell him Pm not here! " — That would be Carolyn Shanks. " May I locate my husband on your map? " — Jean Allen. " Really I can ' t. I have to study. " — Betty Wood. " But Pm doing it for vou. " — ' irginia West. " Is he tall? " — Patti Webb. Stick around a while and you i probably see Jeanne " Venus " Dodson, Janie Conley, the avia- tion expert, or Gea Goldfeder. But don ' t men- tion bananas to Gea. If Betty Thompson and Patti Noyes happen to stroll by, you may be sure the two most useil words in their conversation will be " Paul " and " Claude " (respectively). You won ' t find Ginny Brown or Molly Merkle in. They will be out on dates. The girl with the Manhattan accent is Jinx Delson, still trying hanl to develop a southern drawl. The first semester she had Bcrnice Turner to spur her on, but since Bernie has gone, she re- lies on such people as Dixie McDonald (the girl with 15 — ???), anil Joy Yates, who is strictly (I.

HOUSE I he lilc at the S. A. i. I louse proved to be very active and most excitinj for its forty attrac- tive girls. The girls being cliarniing young lailies just naturally attractetl a lair percentage ol the males in this vicinity. Civilians, V-12 ' s, N.R.O. T.C. ' s, A.S.T.R.R ' s ' , North and South Base sail- ors, Xaval Air Cadets, sokiiers, and home town boys — none were exempt from the wiles of the S. A. E. girls. If you want to know what " Sev- enth Heaven " is just ask Betli McPherson, Doris McAdams, Charlotte Kaiser, Pat Kultz, Rutii Joyce Parsons, or Norma Hightower who have all acquired third finger left hand sparklers. Some certain boys have especially createti excitement for Pat Murphy, Betty Wells. Dene Smith, Pat Ross, Mary Bonnette, Lorri 1 lorn, Bobbyc Ashley, Pat Patton, and Ruth Kirkpatrick. On the glamorous side Wanda Lee, our candidate for football queen, and Jean Barnes, one of the band major- ettes, take top iionors. Laughs, dry wit. and all crazy jokes are furnished by the pranksters Pat Patton, Mary Bonnette, and Bobbye Ashley. If you want to pick a fight just make a sly remark about either Arkansas or Texas. The trips of the year were made by Charlotte Kaiser who spent Christmas in Ottumwa, Iowa, with her one and only and Pat Fult . who made a hurried trip to I lattiesburg, Mississippi, to see her beloved be- fore his departure for overseas. The scholastic honors go to Lorri I lorn, Cherry Epstein, and Glenna Freeland. The season ' s highlights were an informal autumn party and a formal Christmas dinner and dance. Several open-houses were held which were all quite successful. Oh yes! do not forget the formal (?) midnight tea party on the sleeping porch where many original fashions were displayed.

NEWMAN HALL Newman I lall, a resilience w hieli accomnioilates thirty-five university women, was opened in Febru- ary, 1926. It was built and is maintained by the Sisters of Divine Providence of the Catholic Church, anil is open to women students without ilistinction as to their religious affiliation. Sister M. Redcmpta, Our Lady of the Lake College, San Antonio, Texas, now presides as housemother succeeding Sister M. Cecelia. Presiding house officers for this year are : President, Berneice Hoi- sted; Vice-President, Mildred Goriiik; Secretary, Kjersti Swanson; Treasurer, Maxine Pierce. Since it was founded, Newman Hall has main- tained a high scholastic standing, having distin- guished itself on the campus by being awarded three honor cups for highest a erage among the independent halls. This year, two of the girls were initiateil into Phi Beta Kappa, National Honorary Fraternity. The Hall was also pri i- leged in having two of its residents on Mortar Board, and has representatives in Alpha Lamiida Delta, Chi Delta Phi, Chi Upsilon, l ' !ta Sigma Phi, Kappa Delta Pi, Kappa Phi, Omicron Nu, Phi Sigma, Psi Ciii, Sigma Alpha Iota, and Theta Sigma Phi, all national honorary organizations. In spite of Newman ' s many scholastic achieve- ments, it has not been lacking in social activities. The girls entertained the nun from Will Rogers Field with a house dance in Januarv, and a grouj) (it soldiers trom Tinker I-ielil with a Valentine formal. Tiieir interest in campus activities is evi- ilencetl In the lai ge nuiiiher ot girls belonging to the Cadettes and Soonerettcs pep organization. The Hall has entertained members ot the faculty twice at formal dinners this year. The Newman Chorus, which meets weekly, was organized this year by Sister Redcmpta and enter- tains at many of the house functions. Another feature of the house is the Religious Discussion Club, organized and carried out by the Catholic students. Ten of the girls from Newman also belong to the choir of the Catholic chapel which is adjacent to the hall. During its nineteen years of existence. Newman I lall with its high ideals has been an e crlasting source of inspiration to the man university stu- dents who have passed through its portals.

It wasn ' t too unusual for Corrine l lbert to turn down four dates in one week-end. A novel peace offering in the form of red roses from Willis Martin to Isa- bel Crim caused quite a sensation one Saturday morning. Li . I larbour and her Camp Gruber man ilidn ' t believe in wasting time just because he came to see her in the miildle ot the week — so he simply went to classes with her. Jo Goldsmith lost some of her enthusiasm for lootball games after her star " Smalley " was transferred to Arkansas for further training. Bouiiuets were nothing new to Ciiarlotte Cord- ray, but her birtlulay brought a thrill with cut flowers from Creighton who is overseas and a corsage from Hank, the local number one man. Llelen Shelton nuule a three point axerage and kept her tlisposition sweet as e er tor her over- seas husband, whose picture, out-of-this-world let- ters, and many metlals and citations kept all the girls oohing in ailmiration.

Howard Vice-President C. IL GUERSSEY Secretary Lee Harrisberger St. Pat ' s Representative Fred Mouck R. v. James Faculty Sponsors As the oklcst national honorary aeronautical cngincerino; society in the nation, Tau Onicija has createii ami inaintainetl a spirit of fellowship and cooperation anions the stiitients of aeronautics throughout its entire exist- ence. Althou.u ' li its prime purpose is the promotion of the study of aviation among the university students, it keeps a close affiliation hetween these stu- dents and the members of industry. in the fall of 1927, Tau Omega was foundeil at the L ' ni ersity of Okla- homa, at Norman, Oklahoma. The stutients. under the leailership ol J. Court Hayes, Warren E. Daniel, and Orville Gulker, formulated their charter which was duly accepted in February of 1928. They named their chapter the Alpha Chapter of Tau Omega. Into the constitution is written a purpose that has made the fraternity useful, wortlu ' of success and of long life. I ' .ach member accepts as part of his (kit to fully support any projects that will promote and benelit a ia- tion in any way. This is accomplisheil both individually and collectively. It has become necessary to restrict membership to engineering students due to the growth of the l ngineering College and the Held of aviation. The canilichites must he ol junior stantling with a scholastic a erage ol at least 1.5. The oigani ation ol a thing sciiool at Norman was the tirst project ol I ' au ( )mega. This project was one of the major factors enabling the Uni- ersit of ( )klahoma to obtain one of the original Ci ilian Pilot Training Programs. Since the lieginning of the " War for breetlom, " ' I " au ( )mega lias con- tributeil its entire energy towaril the realization of this aim. its members have distinguisheil themselves in aiiling the President of the L ' niteil States to fulfill his promise to the people of this country and to the enslaved peoples of i ' .urope and Asia to give the worlil the most lormiilable air lorce ever seen. i Ik lia e achiexeil this both in industry and in actual couibat. On the rni ersit of ( )klahoma cam|ius, a $.V ' ,000 wind tunnel has re- cently been installeil. With the aiil of the Army and Navy Departments, who gave the university materials with which to work, the stuiients have made material pingiess in the ital research they are carrynig on. Aw-l, so, until the war is won and there are " no " turther accomplishments to be maile, Tau Omega shall direct its boumlless energy toward these goals.

Orijanized in 1922 as the advisory body of the Engineers ' Club, St. Pat ' s Council is composed of representatives of the various entfineering oryaniza- tions on the campus and the eiiitor and business manager of the Sooiwr Shamrock. This organization was founded in honor of St. Pat, the patron saint of all engineers. Final decision on all engineering activities is vested in the Council. Suggestions from all the engineering groups are brought to the nieetings for discussion and action. Since St. Pat is the patron saint of all engineers, his name was selected for the Council. Y. E. Willoughhy, Assistant Professor of Mechanics, is the present able leader of the Council. Under the direction of this organization, the Engineers " Club carries out. its program of sponsorship of the Sooner Shamrock, magazine of the Col- lege of Engineering; staging of the annual St. Pat ' s celebration, held for three days prior to March 17; coordination of the exhibits ot the various schools during the annual openhouse, and to carry on, in general, the tradi- tions of the university; also, the arrangement of the schedule for other activities. The many naval trainees on the campus have enthusiastically contributeil toward the various activities and ha e accomplished a great deal. Although the war has made great inroads on the students, St. Pat ' s Council is attempting to keep the program on the same high level, and in some fields, to make them even more of a success than formerly. Among the many successful undertakings of the past year was the St. Pat ' s celebra- tion in March. Few civilians were around to put the celebration o er, and most of the naval trainees were not yet in the swing of things, but those who could, came out and made a bang-up job of the celebration. The purpose of the Council , as the foregoing shows, is to further all engineering activities. First, it is the belief of St. Pat ' s Council that, due to the important part engineers play in the affairs of a nation at war, stu- tlents should be encouraged to maintain an interest in that field. Second, if the traditions of the College of Engineering are to mean as much to the post-war students as they have to the Engineers of the past, these tradi- tions must be kept alive during this critical period in our history. Meetings are held at least once a month with special meetings being called at an time the need warrants. ST. PAT ' S COUNCIL OFFICERS C. M. RoscoE President G. N. Keith Vice-President M. F.

During recent years the four leading pharmacists initiated into this organ- ization were Lace Fitsheu, vice-president and general manager of Alexander Drug Company; R. M. Vlict, president of Fox Vliet Drug Company: R. C. Stanford, secretary of the state Board of Pharmacy, ant! Pete Weaver, state representative and secretary of the Oklahoma Pharmaceutical associa- tion. Members of this organization are called " buckaroos. " Their official insignia for pledges and buckaroos is a comb and nuifHer (handkerchief) respectively. The colors are buckskin and raspberry. The official Hag is a rectilinear figure divided diagonally, the upper triangle exhibiting a rasp- berry soda on a field of buckskin, antl the lower triangle, a pair of buck- skin colored boots on a background color of raspberries. Among the activities of the past year have been the annual Christmas " Chow, " oyster stew, numerous picnics, and weinie roasts. In pre-war days when the entire campus would get together for the Annual Homecoming Day Activities, the Drug Store Cowboys were the merry lads and lassies seen riding their steeds in the parades, and in general doing a good job of promoting goodwill anil merriment, etc. DRUG STORE CDWBDYS OFFICERS Will.

The Oklahoma University rhiinnacciitical Association was loiindctl. May 18, 1934, by Dean D. B. R. Johnson aiui Dr. Ralph Bientany, hut a group of the students in the pharmacy school had started holding weekly meetings twentv years before, which were to help promote a mutual teeling between students in the school, and also to discuss the vital problems in the Held. The organization considers its annua! all-tlay convention as the big event on its calendar because outstanding speakers from all parts of the country are invited to give lectures and present scientific papers pertaining to the latest problems and discoveries in the hekl of pharmacy. The Best All-Round Boy and the Best All-Roumi dirl are selected for the year and are presented with an awarti. Awards are also given to stu- dents presenting the best papers and to students excelling in some particular branch of their school work. The outstanding senior boy or girl is awarded a meilal, the award being based on scholarship ami leadership activities. The Association also sponsors the annual pharmacy school mixer each year. Beginning with the second semester of 1943-44 the time was largely de- voted to a survey course in Military Pharmacy. In this course various aspects of field, battle, and emergency pharmacy as they differ from civilian pharmacy are discussed and consitiered. In this respect the (). U. Ph. A. considers itself fortunate that a United States Naval I lospital, complete and including a pharmacy anti a laboratory, has been locateil just south of Norman. D.U.Ph.A OFFICERS Will J.

This oriiani ation accommo- dates all women students attending the L ni ersity ot Uklalioma who are not affiliated with a social fraternity. Ilie purpose of the Women ' s League is primarih to serve the interests of women students; to promote their par- ticipation in campus acti ities; to oHer them a proi ram of social, recrea- tional, and cdLicational opportunities; to serve as a clearing house tor their indi idual housing problems and to tiexelop the loyalty ot these Momen to their alma mater by giving them a feeling of " helon, iin,n " through partici- pation in campus activities and university aftairs. Ilie organization seeks to include in its hroaii program e ery iniiependent woman in the unixersity. By means ot a IniiiiU-orgaiii eil program ol intramural sports, and a staff of alert organizers, the Women ' s League has succeeiled in accomplishing its purpose. The executi e body ot the organization is composeei ot the presidents of all indepentlent houses and uniwrsity tiormitories. Miss ' irginia Reinecke, Counselor of Women, sponsor of the society since its organization, has contributed much to the success of the Women ' s League. During the year they have sponsored many social Junctions tor all women students who are not affiliated with a sorority. At the lirst of the year they gave a ilinner in honor of President and Mrs. Cross and the new members. One of the liiglilights of the vear was the formal ilance gi cn h the League tor all unaffiliated women. I ' liev also entertaineil the faculty with a reception. Many other social ami eiiueational functions have been sponsored by the League. The Women ' s League acts for the settlement of all problems concerning the activities for the women on the camjnis, the securing ot coi ' iperation among the women Ani. the er ing to stieiigtlun the relations among all.

Girls who will wear the symbolic Mortar Boarii pin are chosen in their junior year by unanimous ote of the acti " e chapter. Selection is based on high scholarship, leadership, and service. A " B " grade average is required, and participation and leadership in outstanding campus organ- izations. The purpose ot the national Mortar Board organization is to pro iile for cooperation betAveen campus organizations, to promote college loyalty, to advance the spirit of service and fellowship among uni ersity women, to maintain a high standard of scholarship, to recognize ant! encourage leader- ship, antl to stimulate ant! dexelop a liner type of college woman. Owl and Triangle at the University of Oklahoma is one of seventy-eight Mortar Board chapters located at outstanding universities and colleges in the nation. The national organization was founiled in 1918 at a conven- tion of tlelegates from Swarthmore College. Cornell L ' ni ersitv, Ohio State University, and the I ' nixersity of Iichigan. Since that time eleven more national conventions have been held, and the organization has expandeil to include chapters in forty states. ( )wl ami Triangle received its charter on February 7, 1925. Outstaniling among the activities of Mortar Board is the annual all- school Walkout belli in the tail, with the introduction of Mortar Board members anil the traditional tire ceremony. A reception is held tor alumnae on Homecoming Day. and a Smarty Party in the spring is given for all co-etls with " B " or better graile averages. At this time Sophomore Scrolls are presentetl to the ten sophomore women having the highest grade aver- ages, and members of Alpha I.amhiia Delta ami I ' lii Beta Kappa are recog- nizetl.

The dances sponsored by the organiza- tion were held on the campus where the members acted as hostesses for the entertainment. This was before there was a U. S. O. in Norman. Now the Cadettes attend dances held at the Naval Air Station, the Naval Air Technical Training Center, the Naval Hospital, all in Norman, the Naval Air Gunnery School at Purcell, and the Ardmore Air Base. They also act as hostesses at the Union Activity Board Open House held in the Union every Sunday. Another campus event in which Cadettes participate is the dancing class sponsored by the Union. When extra hostesses are neetlei.! at the U. S. O., the Cadettes are there. The growth and renown of this organization is due to a great extent to the sponsors, Miss Ima James and Miss Virginia Reinecke. They have both worketl harci lor the interest of Cadettes. Any girl on the campus may be a member providing she has a C aver- age with no L ' . ' s, I ' s, or F ' s. To remain in good stani.iing, an upperdass Cadettc must attend at least three functions a month; while two is the minimum for freshman Cadettes who can not attend base functions. Catlettes are organized on a house basis. Each organized house has a representati e calleii a IJeutenant. The smaller houses are groupeil to- gether aiui ha e their Lieutenants as do tlie Norman girls. These officers meet once each week to discuss the week ' s acti ' ities. This information they in turn take back to the girls that they represent. Fn;ni the Lieutenants are chosen four girls who act as Commanders of the various events. The Captain heads the organization antl is tlie Cailette representative to the War Council ol which the organi ation is a jiart. Another dut ot the Captain is the schedule ot the arious e ents. The officers lor this year are: Captain, Betty Jo Beck; Commander lor Special Functions, Ann Hardy; Commander for South Base, Dorothy Bran- don; Commaniler lor Hospital Dances, Holice Hoshall: and Commander for Open i louse, I lelen Kathryn Chambers.

It spreail through the southern states and today maintains its strongest chapters in the South. It was organized to offer recognition and to serve as a goal tor pre-medical stutients. The fraternity is managed by national officers elected by chapter dele- gates at the biennial conventions, with the spring convention of 194(J being belli at Oklahoma Alpha Chapter, and the convention for the current semes- ter scheduled to be held at Cleveland. At the present time the fraternity is the strongest existing fraternit ot its kind. The Oklahoma Alpha chapter of Alpha I ' lpsilon Delta at the University of Oklahoma came about by the affiliation of the local chapter of the pre- meilical fraternity. Alpha Pi Mu. Alpha Pi Mu was established in the fall of 1924 at O. U., having been gotten under way during the spring term before, and spread to a number of other institutions in the region, two of which were located at Oklahoma Agricultural and Mechanical Col- lege at Stillwater and at the teachers college in Alva. On April 13, 1936, the University chapter of Alpha Pi Mu affiliated with Alpha Kpsilon Delta. There are 32 chapters scattered through outstanding colleges from coast to coast. New members are selected from the sophomore and junior classes and are pleiiged in the fall and spring. Selection is baseil on scholarship, leaiier- ship, and character. During the current year, the number of girls on the campus increased to become a factor of Alpha Kpsilon Delta, and it was voteii to enlarge its membership to include them in the fraternity. Eleven girls have been elected to membership thus tar. Although these are the first steps taken by (Oklahoma Alpha chapter to include girls in the fraternity, it is in line with the practice ot the national organization. In the Army and Navy there are many of the former stu- dents and members entered in Medical School. These stuilents have been initiateil within the past four years. When the ASTU program was estab- lisheil on the local campus, it was tiecided to include the Army pre-medical students having the qualifications desired.

The Christian Associations arc organizations primarily of students ami specifically for students — for individual young people of the campus with their particular interests and aims and possibilities. The program, there- fore, is in the hands of the membership, and is the responsibility of the cabinets which are composed in general of those students who show the most interest in the work of the Associations and who give promise of furnishing leailership. The early records of student Christian societies go back to 1825 in some of the eastern universities, hut the first intercollegiate movement came into being in 1877 when student representatives ret]uesteii the Y. M. C. A. to organize a Student Department. Nine years later a Student Y. W. C. A. was formed. The history of the local Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A. dates back almost as far, for thev were organized soon after the formation of the University, and have continued since without interruption. The Associations have sought primarily to bring students together for development of understanding of the Christian faith and of its implica- tions for contemporary living. The Associations ' activities thus vary ac- cording to the needs that appear and the objectixes of the members. The activities this year have been varieii ami included speakers presented to student audiences, discussion groups on post-war problems, student life, race relations, the Christian faith and similar topics, the Student Service Fund Drive which was sponsored by Y ' s. entertainment in the homes of facultv members arranged for trainees ami civilian stutlents. and a num- ber of parties, mixers and the like. The local associations are affiliated with the World Student Christian Foundation, which is one of the few organizations binding young people around the world together in common fellowship. The local associations have thus put a great deal of etifort this year into sending large delegations to these conferences. The state, regional ami national conferences are the heart of the Student Christian Associations .Mo ement of America. The Y Lounge in the Memorial Union Building is the center of most and inter-religious activities on the campus. It is comfortably furnished. A arietv of religious ami other perioilicals and pamphlets ami books are conveniently displayed. A ping-pong table, a piano. ' and a phonograph have provided many moments of relaxation tor all students.

Hai.i ck Pastor The Baptist Student Union, in its very broadest meaning, is the voluntary religious activities of the Baptist students within the schools and universities of the South, as provideii tor and proniotetl by Southern Baptists. It is a youth organization which serves this coninuinity as a link between the uni- versity and the church. Each Baptist or Baptist preference student in the University of Okla- homa is a potential member of the Baptist Student Union. Each may be- come an acti e member when he joins the local Baptist church or any unit organization (Sunday School, Baptist Young People ' s Union, the Young ' omen " s Auxiliary of the Women ' s Missionary Society, the Young Men ' s Brotherhood) sponsored by the Baptist Student Union. The Baptist Student Union seeks to ser ' e the college communitv. It promotes the spiritual de elopment of students through Christian comrade- ships, Bible stuily, prayer, church membership, ilcnominational loyalty and kingdom advancement. The Baptist Student Center is located at 427 ' est Boyd. This building is used by the Baptist students on the campus lor ilevotional meetings, lecreational acti ities, reading and lor a gooil time in general. Two dail de ()tional perioiis are held at the Baptist Stutient Center. One of these is called Morning Watch and is held from 7 :.?U to 7:50 o ' clock. The other is called the Noon Day Prayer Meeting antl is held from 12:43 to 12:58 each noon.

Prior to 1924, the students of each professional engineering; school ot the College of Engineering were affiliated with a national professional en- gineering society. As a part of the extracurricular activities, the national organizations sponsored a student branch of their societies on the campus. Each student branch had its own officers and held nionthh meetings during which guest speakers were invited to talk on engineering subjects which were ot interest to the student group. When the School of Petroleum Engineering was organized in 1924, no definite effort was made by the students to become affiliated with a national organization. As a consequence the interest of the petroleum engineering stuiients was somewhat divided as some students would attenil a student branch of one school and others another. In ' )M) some of the leading students of the School of Petroleum Engineering attempted to bring all stuilents of that school together in a common organization. They were only moderately successful and the attendance at the meeting was some- what limited. In October of 1933, Dean W. H. Carson, who had just been made Director of the School of Petroleum Engineering at that time, held a mass meeting of all petroleum engineering students. The purpose of the meet- ing was to explain the advantage of having a student organization in whicli the membership would be ilrawn exclusively from those enrolled in petro- leum engineering. The response to the suggestion was overwhelmingly in favor of the organization of a group, and the students voted unanimously to adopt the name Petroleum Engineers ' Club. Officers were elected and a program outlineil for the year. The attenilance at meetings was excep- tionally good and at times the engineering auditorium could not hold the overflow crowd. In February, 1934. the members of the Petroleum Engineers " Club xoteil to become affiliated with the American Institute of Mining and Metallur- gical Engineers, and since that date the Petroleum Engineers ' Club has been the official stuilent chapter of the A.l.M.E. on the campus of the L niversity. Many outstanding speakers have participated in the meetings ami the officers selected have always been extremely active. P. E. CLUB OFFICERS II. R. McOwEx President Mark A. Lov Vice-President R. V.

ALPHA LAMBDA DELTA OFFICERS Anx Cai.vf.rt President lONE Macofhv ' ice-President Charlotte W ' rivker Secretary NANXY McCl.lNTOCK Treasurer Elizabeth Johnson Historian-Keeper of the Archives Helen Cullins Senior Advisor Alpha l.anihila Delta is a national honorary scholastic fraternity for freshman women. This organization was first established at the University of Illinois in 1924, in order to interest freshman women in intellectual living and to inspire them to study. Two years later Alpha Lambda Delta became a national organization antl was ehartereil in other eilucational institutions. The University of Oklahoma chapter was founded in 1929 untler the sponsorship of Dr. Jewel Wurtzbaugh. At present, the chapter is spon- sored by Miss Jeanette Alexander. It has a roll of twenty-one active members. Membership in the organization is purely scholastic. Members are elected on the basis of their high scholarship during their first semester or on their gratle average for the entire freshman year. Any freshman woman with a 2.5 grade average ami a class schedule of fourteen hours or more is automatically eligible for nienihership. Students are active for the remainiler of their freshman and sophomore vears. The upper class members of Alpha Lambda Delta are called col- legiate alumnae and maintain their interest throughout their tour under- grailuate years. . lpha Lambda Delta has proved a stimulus for study and high scholar- ship among freshman women in institutions where chapters have been in- stalled. It is not a goal to be worked lor by students and attained by means of high scholarship alone, init is a rewanl for real interest in things intel- lectual and for conscientious work well ilone. Activities of various national chapters include: sponsorship of a tutorial system, presentation of an awartl to the member who makes the highest grailes for the entire freshman year. The University of Oklahoma chapter also traditionally sponsors an annual Christmas carolling party, participa- tion in the Mortar Hoard Walkout and in the Activities Festival, and sev- eral social functions honoiing new members. The presiiient has the additional responsibility of acting as chairman ol the scholastic eonnnittee ol Associated Women Students. Page 342 LKOT is known to most students as a black-hooded group of men who appear out of the night to fire a cannon, then melt away into the darkness. This cannon is Old Trusty, and the hooded figures are the Loyal Knights who guard it. This secret order has won the respect of all Engineers and receives faculty anil university approval. A quarter of a century has passed since the Loyal Knights of Old Trusty was organized for the purpose of serving the Engineering school by keeping ali e its cherished traditions. In that pcrioii only some two hundred and seventy members have been awarded this, the highest honor attainable by an Engineering student. A member is not chosen for his high grades, or his listing in the social register, but because he is a Man, and because he has shown bv his actions that he holds the Engineering school and all it stands tor, abo e his personal living. No public esteem is offered a member, as he is oiih known to his fellow members by a number given him on his initiation, anti by his name on a metal plate on a large plaque in the I ' .ngineering building when he gradu- ates. On this honor roll are engraved the names ot Engineers in all fields of industry in many countries. Some are famous, some are just good fel- lows, but in general the ring of LKOT is found on the lingers of men who are leaders in their profession, and in their community. War has restricteci the activities of the School to a small degree, but this year, as in the past, Old Trusty will boom its salute at the annual St. Pat ' s Celebration.

" I Io e er, the honor which it bestows upon the stuilent member is etjuivalcnt to that of Phi Beta Kappa. The parent chapter existed alone until 1892. In ortler that a man be elected to membership in Fau Beta Pi, he must not only rank in the upper one-fifth of the senior class or one-tenth of the junior class, but he must also be a man of honor, u ' h ideals, antl uni]ues- tionable character. In other ()riis, Tau Beta l i is the highest honor which can be conferred upon an umlerj railuate in en.nineerint; ' . In 1923 on St. Pat ' s Day, a group of outstanding engineers organized Tau Pi, a local fraternity. After three years, they applied to Tau Beta Pi for a chapter at the University of Oklahoma. This chapter, Al()ha of )kla- homa, was installeil April 3, 1926, making it the forty-ninth in a brother- iiood of o er eight ' chapters. Incidentalh it is the onK chapter organized in ' )klaiioma. While Tau Beta Pi is primarily an honorary engineering fraternitv, it realizes the alue of a close brotheilii otl brought about by association together, botli acailemic and social, and lor tiiis reason fosters a spirit of liberal culture among its members. Because ol tiiis realization, a number ot social actixities ha e been gi en by I ' au Beta Pi lor members and quests. At one ol the I au Beta PI baiKiuets, the principal speaker, .Mr. I Kilvit I..

The Women ' s Choral Club is an all-university organi ation, which re- hearses daily each semester. Its purpose is providing enjoyment for those who like to sing, and for entertaining auiliences over the state. This year the group is making a concert tour of several camps in the southeast part of the state as its part in this war effort. The Club feels that this is tlie least they can do for our boys and girls who are fighting for our freedom. Under the direction of Mrs. Carl Chaudoin, the first performance of the year was October 21 on the Dad ' s Day program. November 1, Choral Club maile its annual appearance at the Mortar Board walkout. A special program of music was given on December 3, at the McFarlin Methodist Church. A group of Christmas carols was given at the Orchesis annual presentation of " The Juggler of Notre Dame " on December 14. A Christ- mas program on December 21 was presented o er radio station WNAD. The annual Choral Club banquet-dance will be gi en the hi t of April, at which an award of a special Choral Club bracelet will be presented to girls who have served the organization for lour semesters. At the end of six semesters a ruby is added to the bracelet ami after serving the club tor a period of eight semesters, a diamonti is added to the bracelet.

Pi Tau Sijjma, the national honorary mechanical en,si:ineerin. i fraternity, is composed of the outstanding juniors and seniors in the school of mechan- ical engineering. A grade average of 1.5 must be hekl before admission is granted, but scholarship is not the only requirement. A candidate for Pi Tau Sigm a must display a strong interest in mechanical engineering and have a pleasing personality. The boys who wear the carnot cycle on their watch chains come from the mechanical division of engineering. When they get to be in the upper one- third of the senior class or the upper one-fourth of the junior class in the division, then they are invited to one of the smokers. From then until the night of initiation, the prospective members go through training and pledgeship. However, they are juciged on the quali- ties of engineering ability, leadership, trustworthiness, industry, dependa- bility and personality before they are initiatetl. The boys that attain the distinction of membership try to encourage higher scholastic achievement among the underclassmen. Pi Tau Sigma was founded at the University of Illinois in 1915. The Oklahoma Sigma chapter dates back to April of 1940. Thirty active chap- ters are installed in the leading universities anci in the leading colleges throughout the nation. The purpose of Pi Tau Sigma is to create a closer relationship between the faculty and students in mechanical engineering: to foster and encourage good moral character and a high standanl of scholarship; and to provide recognition for outstanding students. As a token of scholastic achievement, an annual award is presented to the highest ranking sophomore Mechanical Engineer. The chapter co-operates with the A.S.M.E. Stutlent Branch, participates in the annual Engineers ' Openhouse Celebration, and, in general, serves to advance the Mechanical Engineering profession at the University of Oklahoma. Professor Wendell S. Taylor, a graduate of the United States Naval . cademy, succeeded Professor William T. Tiffin as the sponsor of the organization. Professors E. F. Davison. W. O. Smith, and Ellis M. Sims are very co-operative in every activity the organization engages in. PI TAU SIGMA OFFICERS Morris E. Childs President Dick Peddvcoart Vice-President Kenneth H.

Once each week in the smoke-filled room that really was 120 Union, the 20 members of the board conceived and ga e birth to those plans for recre- ation that dominated campus social life while Hobby Hodge and Toni Burn- ham kept interrupting each meeting to announce the annual Career confer- ence. First of the extra-special ventures and adventures was Frontier days. Under the guidance of Chairman jarita Bicknell the most extensive and elaborate plans in many a year were made and carried out. On the opening day of the festivities, members of the board, and other interested campus- ites, fresh from a weekend at the Dallas game, continued their whoopee with a horseback stampetie at tlaybreak ami thus officially opened the four- da ' celebration. Bob Tom LInson, Phyllis lengdin anil jne Schaft, who ilidn ' t quite make it to Dallas, laid the groundwork for many of the side- light features, while Chuck Weiss and Prexy Stubbeman kept bringing in frontierish objects they had confiscated from the Texas countryside to lend a western atmosphere to the occasion. Big event of the second semester was the annual Xow or Never festi ity which was highlighted by the election of a " Cinderollo " candidate. Chair- man Jane Wright and her committee were crediteil with putting over one of the best Xow or Never celebrations in campus history.

Since that December the 7tli, 1941, when this coiiiUry eiUered the war, the L ' nilerL ' railiiate War Cimiicil has been tuiutioninii as a iiieaiis thr()U ih which stiiiients on this campus might turn their etiorts toward assuminj an active part on the home front. The council ' s activities include Cadettes, Surgical Dressint!;s, First Aid Classes, Hospitality Center, War Stamp Booth, Scrap Drives, Service Com- mittees, and general entertaining. Last year the Union Board presented a desk to the War Council for the Hospitality Center. Information concern- ing!; iiny phase of campus lite may be obtained here. This year the Council was in charge of fixing fourteen hundred Christmas stockings for the Navy men and women at the South Base Hospital. All of the houses ami organizations on the campus and the town clubs co-operated by filling at least one stocking per person. Due to the work done by the council the University was the first Univer- sity in the country to be the recipient of the Schools at War Flag. The minute man flag was awarded to the school for the sale of war stamps to ninety per cent of the university stuilents. In a special flag raising service, two stars were added to our flag, and a copy ol the Bill of Rights was pre- sented to the Univers ity for having the flag tor one year. In connection with the Sixth War Loan Drive, the War Council played an acti e part. Girls sold bonds as well as stamps. To make the students buy extra stamps, a ticket to " Arsenic and Old Lace " , a uni ersit play- house production, was given for every dollar ' s worth ol stamps bought. The aim of the L ' ndergraduate War Council is to help and to co-operate in every way possible to get the neeiled supplies to our men in the service. By having girls in the stamp booth every day, the stuilents have an oppor- tunity to buy stamps whenever they can. The members of the council go to each organized house on the campus once each month and sell stamps to them. War hours credit are received for this work.

Ktii Kappa Xu was foiimicd in 1904 at tho University of Illinois by a j;r()iip headed by Maurice L. Carr. Since then, thirty-hve other ranking universities throughout the United States ottering at least a tour year course in Electrical Engineering leading to a degree of B. E. E., B. S., or the equivalent, have established upon their campuses a chapter in H. K. N. In the vear of 1942. a group of seven outstanding students in the field of Elec- trical Engineering at the University of Okhihoma petitioned and were ac- cepted into Eta Kappa Nu as the Beta Xi chapter. Since the electrical engineers live in a world all their own and even have their own language bv using such terms as: kilowatts, volts, ohms, amperes, regulators, current, and a jillion others, too numerous to mention here, that group of students at the University of Illinois banded together for the pur- pose which is best stated by referring to the preamble of their constitution: " That those men in the profession of electrical engineering who, by their attainments in college or in practice ha e manifested a deep interest in their chosen life work, may be brought into a closer union whereby mutual benefit may be derived . . . " The purpose of H. K. N. is to stimulate interest and reward those who have demonstrated marked ability in Electrical Engineering, as evidenced bv scholarship and indivitlual attainments, and who possess (jualities which indicate that he will be successful in his chosen profession. The pletlge must be of unimpeachable character and of agreeable personality. Eta Kappa Nu places a mark of distinction on all of its members in that it is the onlv national honorarv fraternit that is exclusivelv for the electrical engi- neer. Each year the chapter initiates a limited number of qualified men from the top ranking students of the junior and senior classes. After acceptance. the pledge is required to construct a bridge, the symbol of the organization, and to carry this bridge for three days, having it signei.1 by every member and the sponsor. A formal initiation is held for the new pledges and then they join with the members and sponsor in an annua! banquet and elect the members for the ensuing term. Professor F " . G. Tappan, director of the School of Electrical Engineer- ing, is the sponsor of the local chapter. ETA KAPPA NU OFFICERS V. J. Kerth President C. Maciire Nice-President Corresponding Secretary R. R.

Robert Gates Corresponding Secretary Wilbur Kolar Treasurer Roy L. Seikel Historian Joe Keei.ev Sponsor Fouiuicil at the University of Nebraska in 19U3 to recoijnize outstanding scholarship and activity in the field ot ensrineerinj , Sigma Tau came to our campus in 1916. It is the oklest h()norar engineering organization on the campus. To he eligible for Sigma Tau, a man iiuist be of junior standing, prefer- ably second semester, or of senior standing, with a grade point average not below 2.0. Besides this scholastic requirement, selection is made with an eye to the man ' s practicability and sense of co-operation with his fellow students. Thus e er ' engineer making Sigma Tau is known to have worked on the various activities of the luigine School. Should a student so excel in leadership and achle -ement and not have a 2.0 average, his name may he brought up for selection by two or more members who belie e him to be outstamiing. Pro itling his grade average is not less than 1.7 and he is approNed b unanimous vote of the members, he may be elected. Ihese special consitlerations ha e so iar been applietl to a very limited number of students. To be a successful man in any calling, one nuist not only possess scientific knowledge, but also the social ability necessary to get along with all sorts ol people. Also one nuist be able to put iileas ami plans across in non- teehnicai terms to persons outside of the jirofession. Fhis is the end to which Sigma Tau is tiedicated : to make better men ot the students besides recognizing their excellence in the lieKl of engineering. At the October initiation banquet for members and tlieir dates, J. Bruce Wiley spoke on " How to Climb a Tree " , or in plainer terms, that one nuist not try to get places through the work of others but must make a positive beginning, but also time must be taken to enjoy lite at the same time, or else the Iruits of a lifetime of work will be wasted. Through their own contributions, the various chapters are kept in touch with each other through the I ' yrainid, the national voice of the fraternity. It is a (|uarteriy magazine containing numerous articles on the various suh- ili isions ol the tielil ol engineei ' ing besiiies a report on the activities of each chapter. Professor Joe Keeley is the faculty sponsor of Sigma Tau. Through his co-operation and assistance the organization has maile much progress on the campus in recent years.

I-Diimlcil in 1876, the American Society ot Ci il Mn.u;inccrs became the official ori anization of the Civil Engineers. A stialcnt chapter, known as the Statlia Club, was formed on the campus in 1922, its purpose being to bring the student Civil Engineers together and enable them to become ac- ijuainteti with practicing engineers. The members of the chapter consist of Ci il I ' .ngineering students from all classes, in both navy and civilian groups. With the beginning of the fall semester in July, the chapter took on new life. The Civil Engineering students reorganized the chapter and made plans for numerous acti ities during the year. A policy of inviting prac- ticing engineers to speak to the chapter at the monthly meetings has proven very interesting. This has given the members the opportunity to become acquainted with the methods and men with whom they will be working upon graduation from college. During the fall semester, two well known engi- neers, Mr. Guy 1 1. James and Mr. W. L. Benham, both of Oklahoma City, presented talks on subjects which were of great interest. Student members were also encouraged to take part in presenting pro- grams. Gene Sauer presented an interesting discussion, accompanied by pictures, on the type and system of dams used in one of the irrigation projects recently completed in Arizona. The other discussion was given by Wayne Loch on " The Tacoma Narrows Bridge Failure. " Supplementing his discussion were movies and slides loaned by the national A. S. C. E. He also presented this same discussion to the public during the Engineers " Openhouse Exhibit. Included in the chapter ' s membership are most of the men who con- structed the Civil Engineers ' exhibit that won first place in the annual Engineers ' Openhouse. A. J. L. t.

Things like that, however, happen only once in a lifetime. .And be- sides, she should be glad that her sisters speak to her this year.

However, she never got to know any of them well enough that she could have anyone but her brothers to talk about (the were Phi Delts down here, ou know).

ALPHA XI DELTA The Alpha Xi Deltas continued their uneventful mode of life this year, but even their singular dullness, which was incredible enough to be interesting at one time, we suppose, failed to arouse any talk on t he campus. Their sad chapter was so generally accepted as sad, even by them, that there was never anything to say about them. Even the chaplain refused to punch their cards.

The Alpha Xis attended no social functions, they were not represented in any elections, it is even thought that they didn ' t enter intramural sports. They failed to win the little publicity they had last year by placing in scholarship ; they were not mentioned there either. A few people who had nothing else to do won- dered occasionalK what the Alpha Xis Jul do with their time, but few were interested in unsolvablc problems this year. The otdy logical explanation offered all year for their complete lethargy was that they were purposely avoiding publicity because they had a still in their base- ment. This theory had to be discarded because there was one group of them that was seen out occasionally. Every Saturday mght this group wcTit to Rickner ' s, all inies- corted of course, and giggled. If the rumor about the still had been true, we know notiiing could have forced them out into campus life. The one girl they had that was heard from this year, Mavis Doughty, failed to bring them any publicity. People thought of her in connection w ith the I. school rather than with her sorority. (ieorge Ware, one of the few men e er even seen near their little cottage in the woods, stopped going there after second semester started. None of the girls were taking plant sciences after January, although many of them had told George they would be glad to talk " leaves " with him. Margaret Tate spent the year writing letters and her friends searched for scales on which to weigh them. The felt that would eiiniinate the necessit for mailing .ill iicr letters twice as the usually came back for postage. It is not surpnsmg that they did because she sent him every- thuig from the (luvirid If iic ori to radish seeds. An Alpha . i had the distinction of pulling the biggest boner of the year. Martha Colcord, the Georgia girl with the Ohio accent, met her own date at the door, introduced him to another girl and watched them walk ofi together. She tried to explain later when she realized what had happened by saying that she didn ' t know her date, that he was just a " friend of a friend " and in the confusion of a man ' s walking up the steps of the Alpha Xi house she thought he had asked for someone else. So Martha missed her chance for this year. The girls had a moment of hope when Cris Matthew., former NRO on the campus, was reported to be sta- tioned at the North Hase. Rut he never came. Darla Johnston had enough worries to last her for another year when two hometown boys wrote they ' d be home to see her he would accompany her home for the same week-end. It must have turned out all right though, because the sailor ended the eventful week-end by proposing to her on the interurban. The one sound heard from the silent sis- ters all year came when Darla told them about her success. However, there was one activity in the Alpha Xi house this year. The ' all spent the ear hating the ra lio. Ruth Marie Snider, the girl who claims either Arkansas or Texas as a home state as the conversation requires, was responsible. .An ardent fan of Sherman Strance, whoever he may be, she times in at five a. m. which is the onh time Mr. Strance ' s program ma ' be heard. The foregoing was, of course, a paid aiKertisement. It Costs Only a Few Pennies People pay to get their newspapers, not only because they want the news, but because they don ' t want to miss the newspaper ads. A single paper costs only a few pennies .... but when you add it all together the people of the United States and Canada spend $1,716,000 every week-day, plus $3,160,000 every Sunday for their newspapers .... more than they spend for all magazines, books, and everything else they read combined. Another reason why in war or peace, the newspaper is indispensable.

In fact, the Alpha Phis did well on the queen ileal this year ; there was another one too, the annual sweetheart of Alpha Phi, chosen by the girls themselves according to their own quaint custom. The) ' crowned her at their dance in the L nion and gave her some Howers. How- e er, no one remembers now who it was they chose. The Alpha Phis had some good rushees this ear. They even got one good pledge. Alice Atulrews, and neither they nor anyone else has gotten over it et. Per- haps it was that room with a H replace that they always show anyone the minute he stumbles into their house, even the ones that just want a drink of water (which they probably wouldn ' t have in the house anyway). Their theme song — like the Delta (lamnias ' . too — was, as always, " We wish we had a girl like you. " They got girls like no one else, however, except la Andrews whom we have already mentioned and whom the ha e men- tioned all year. Incidentally the Alfafis have been waiting eagerly for Alice to break down and accept the frat pin that her navy cadet, Jimmy Pa ne, has been offering her in every letter since October. They ' re afraid he will get tired of waiting and they ' re so used to worrying about any of their girls ' who have a man, keeping him that they worry even about Andrews. Jayne McFarlanil was an Alpha Phi who lost a man this year. It was her old friend from Fort AVorth and she replaced him with -12 Dale Wich- man, who ended up in New Zealand, where he seems to be finding interesting women.

In spite of their proximity to the Cadet Club and their constant plugging of the Queen Bee, niclcnell, iio one much worth while fell for their magic-cake line. The first project naturally had to be a " slick-up " campaign, as some of the girls felt their tlull rush season just might have been due to the fact that their fashion shows seemed absurd when most of the models looked as if they were in the first stages of a Du Harry Success Course. When it became obvious that no amount of camourtaging would do much good, they decided that activities would save them. They didn ' t. Taffy Williams knocked herself out as society editor of the Daily, but her imagination wasn ' t quite large enough to convince the school that the Alpha Chis really dated. As their last white hope, the sisterhood went all the way on the Cin- derollo campaign. It was truly " Now or e er, " and Loy was the boy. It may have been a break for tin- Alpha Chis when they presented their boy as Cinderollo, but the glass slipper pinched Marcus. From that time on, he was destined to date a Channel. Even Carolyn Cooley and Rilhe Morrow (who tried hard) couldn ' t get him out of the Alpha Chi Omega house. Mary Mcll Roberts, by careful use of mood music and Ben Hur perfume, finally got Dick Crouch in the ques- tion-asking mood. However, the question he asked was, " Have you read Dick Tracy today? " Afraid of scaring him away for good by seeming disappointed, she showed she could go along with a gag and. when he left for Pen- sacola, started decorating her letters with cutouts of Tracy.

Mary Ann Chan- iiell received a beaiititul ATC) pin which she gets out occasionally just to admire the emeralds. Ann Gaines earned the title of the Alpha Chi who did the most for her house this year just by keeping a man around the house, her fiance, Don Smith. The big event of the year for Dell Hughes came when she was allowed to ride in the back of Lord Halifax ' s wolf hunt party. It was the first orthodox wolf she had been with all year. Betty Bernard got a break. Her Hank, who was at Missouri U. when she was at Chris- tian and who was stationed at the South Base when she came to Norman, got a transfer to the North Base and a pretty cadet suit to wear this year. Relieved of her duty of living up to the ' AV code, Marjorie " I ' m Free Again " Pittman enjoyed a senior Hiiig with first one and then another around Norman and Okie City. It was after all a perfectly natural reaction. The big question among the Alpha Chis, which had some involved, but humorous-to-them, answer was, " Why wasn ' t Alpha Chi prexy, Dorothy Varkentin, able to attend the Alpha Phi dance? " Boston ' s Phyllis Bever celebrated the first aiuiiversary of her engagement to a boy who is now- overseas in a beautiful fashion. She re- ceived three corsages at that time, two from fellows here he had been dating, one from her fiance. When her sisters took their little problems to psychol- ogy student Doris " Dixitor " Kolar, the best solution she co ild ever suggest was the I iiioii tower, her theoiT being that that end to a problem would bring the house more publicity.

There were some catty people around school ho commented that ostrich feathers would be more appropriate at a country dance an ay than at a school function, even at OM.A. We recommend that Patty Mullins buy a large date book so that she won ' t be so confused and won ' t find herself with three dates for one night. One of the fello xs who was scheduled to be part of a triple-decker sandwich date was able to keep better track of Patty ' s schedule than she was. He con- sidered it carelessly rude rather than cute and lessened her problem by one date. Xita Hinson, fondh dubbed " Love ' em and leave ' em " by her Alpha Chi sisters (those girls have the cutest nick- names for each other), surprised all those girls by ac- cepting the Phi Gam pin of one Don Wiley, the week before he left for overseas, and after a romance of just four eeks.

Jarita Hicknell relaxed strenuously this year b slipping down to .Ardmore with her little chum. Mo Mo Peters, for parties with marines and late hours. The friends they chose to share these gay parties went around for weeks mumbling, " It couldn ' t be . . .

It included her and four of Chuck ' s buddies from the base ; she is afraid that Chuck will sec it. ou can easily see why she would worry — imagine standing in a picture with four men. How perfectly wicked ! But she tried this year. But the Alpha Chis were satisfied on the men question so far as their houseboys were concerned. Ricardo and his South American boys entertained them royally every Saturday afternoon with their gay S.A. rhythms — and all the girls were always there to hear them. The fellows even gave them a Christmas party at which each girl re- ceived a card written in Spanish. Some were better un- translated.

The truth was (tlu ' awtiil, autul truth) she was only a Thcta — she (iidnt date — aiui her friends were all Thctas. It just made a better stor the other way. The big project of Kappa Alpha Theta this year was a gala Bond Ballyhoo (and when we say Ballyhoo — we mean Ballyhoo). It seems the high-H. ing Kites refused to believe themselves grounded. Some of the girls had been at the university so long that they remembered when Theta was among the top sororities (way, way back in Pre-Roosevelt days) — at least the rumor was so preva- lent among discouraged alums and told so many times that some of them began to believe it had actually hap- pened. This year promised to be even worse than last, so the girls called in their idea women from all over the Middle West to meet the problem and face the facts. The result was the biggest publicit ' stunt pulled on any campus. If the motive had been truly patriotic, there would have been no need to have had K.APPA ALPH.A THETA in giant letters on e ery advertisement. The girls even dashed to Tulsa to get a pic taken. The sad- dest of all tales w as that the night of their dance they had to sell war bonds. Ma be the didn ' t realize that every- one knew they wouldn ' t be able to get dates anyway. Re- gardless, we doff our hats to the Thetas for the most poorly-played stunt of the year. At printing it looks as if the last cstige of Theta glory is going to be taken awa_ from them. As far as we can figure, they didn ' t have much except a few illegally kept cars. And even their political maneuvering kept them from being called before the no-car commission — en masse. Too bad ; there go your chances for next year ' s rush — if you ever had any, winch we doubt seriously.

It used to be considered something of an honor for the legal eagles to attempt the kidnapping of the Queen. Hut in those days most of the girls on the campus were good sports and most of the engineers were men enough to hold their own against the lawyers. If not, they let the lawyers have their queen. W ' ith this generation, though, things seem to have degenerated all the way down the line. Not only were these day laborers who call themselves engi- neers small enough to call the Norman police department to help them fight their battles, but the Queen they chose was something of a pansy in her own right. Had the lawyers known both the queen and her alleged escort, it ' s a pretty safe bet that they wouldn ' t have wanted to kid- nap her in the first place. Maybe when school does get back to normal, the engineers will be able to elect some- thing that can hold the title of queen and act the part. Thanks to the cooking of Lucy and the efforts of some of the better girls, the Chi Omega Keg and Kennel club managed to stay on the campus for another year. With Marshall in the ranks of those who got married, they cast about for a pre.xy to hold the place together. They made an extensive search and finally got the Sharp girl to stay away from the North Base long enough to preside at the chapter meetings. Despite the dirty politics indulged in by a brace of the more mentally immature Country Cousins, the Hollis Hot Rock and the Dewey Devil, the absence of the Betas as a sales talk and the fact that the government was trying to buy their house as a rest home for retired Army Mules (which rumor was hotly denied), Famous for Young Fashions for 34 Years ....

First it was on, then it was ofif, then it was on again until even Carrifae couldn ' t know for sure. The Chi O ' s themselves have been wondering about their sweet and innocent Charla Robertson. It seems im- possible that she could be going steady with that " bad man " Smokey Stover. It has led the more naive Chi O ' s to talk philosophically about the attraction of opposites and the less naive ones just to keep quiet.

Les Braeur is one; his treatment at the hands of Ruth McKissick reminded him once more that he never did have much luck at the Chi O house. John- nie Keating is the other. After starting out at the top of the Chi Omega social ladder, he dropped progressively down. The Chi O trio (every house has one now; a trio is a necessity li ke a good cook or a back yard) got itself con- fused with its desires and the customs of society this year. The girls, Prime, Cirogan and Marshall, all had a weak- ne.ss for engaged men. Collectively, the Chi O ' s attempted two main projects this year. The first was the redecorating job they did on their house just before rush in an attempt to get a pledge class. They renia ie their sunroom, put ferns just like grandmother used to grow in it and quaint drapes with pictures of ferns printed into the material. They tied gardenias and roses on a tree for some sort of esthetic effect and put it in their frotit hall to greet the rusheei. And they hung bird cards in their hall. too. The whole efifect was most unusual, arid as a result they pledged some pretty unusual people, all the fern and bird card type unfortunately. Their other project was to get some publicity through the Cinderollo campaign. They succeeded, but they had to name a candidate that did not date in the house to get talked about. A ' hy, of all the fellows known around the campus who don ' t date in the Chi O house, they chose the Bone we cannot understand. But their candidate was wisely chosen to stir up comment about them; the Chi O ' s were talked about at least for a little while, this year.

She, too, was seen ill the local hop centers with that wraith that walks like a man. " Corky " Haves is still trying. She didn ' t have a (late this year. Despite the depredations ot the Jordan (or, we used to date in the Phi Delt house), it has been rumored that this lovely creature niatiaced to tear herself away from Sam " The (limp " Wood lon enough to attend one chap- ter meeting of the Key-house, janell Law spent a gay year taking naval cadets from the North Hase into the Kappa back ard and telling them stories about life. " On rainy nights she settled for the sun porch " (and we do quote the voice of experience). Barbara " Ohimigad " Lemmon, with the aid of her sterling personality and the rumor that she is worth seven million dollars, managed to snag one of the lads of the bell-bottom pants. This boy had been fighting the battle of the South Canadian so that in his weakened condition he was unable to resist the attacks of " The Lemmon. " With the " Dirty Clerty " W ooten married to one of the lesser Delts. and with the S. A. E. house in- habited only by mere women, the Key kids were forced to rely on their rather dubious merits to obtain a pledge class. To overcome this handicap, it is rumored this house of female wrestlers locked twenty-four innocents in the wreck-room and called it a pledge class. It is also said that blond Norma Parker, the only passable babe in the house, was trapped in the ladies ' room door and emerged so weakened that she was unable to resist the blue and the blue. Seems that during his brief stay in the hospital, John " The Bone " McCrinimon was sadly mistreated. Upon his release, " The Rone " went screaming to the dean of men to protest against the treatment he received. He claimed that after they failed to get blood from his veins, they released him, first beating hiir with an abandoned tool. The reason friend " Rone " journeyed to the Elm Street Mortuary was to have a brass rail removed which had been pressing against the bottom of his foot for years. Ve mention " The Rone " at this particular place because he was once a Kappa house boy and no one else will claim him. It is rumored that they even voted for him for Cinderollo. They didn ' t have anyone to put up them- selves, and he was practically the only man on campus they had ever seen. Rut it really crossed up the Gamma Phis. Carolyn Lydle, please note: " Little girls with big ideas often fall off high places, even if it ' s from a Kappa ' s nose " — and there ' s a sister Tulsan there to catch you. After months of not-too-subtle singing of Phi Delt songs, Margaret Camp coyly annexed Hugh ' s pin. Molly Lee Lester had a Sig Alph pin stuck away in her jewelry box for three months before she saw fit to return said trinket. We are amazed at the sophisticated casualness of it all. Janell Law, Jean Rarnett and Kath- ryn Miller returned pins this year. We don ' t know which is the greater mystery, how they ever got them in the first place or what ever induced them to give them up. Then there is Pinky Smith, who is marrying Andy Seed in April and plans to call the first sprout " Dragon. " Page 41 S FOR FINE FOOD IN A FRIENDLY ATMOSPHERE HARTWELL HILL.

Sixth 7-5525 Pooo I6 PI BETA PHI The Pi Phis slept thioiiKh another ear caretulK guanieti by their taithtul lllaiivs, who seemingly never gets tired. In fact she kept them so well that they came out with a scholarship cup tor lack of an thinj; else to do. The appalling lack of men was aided somewhat by the addition of a couple of new faces that they called a pledge class — but which they naturally kept carefully hidden in closets. The seniors just plain sta ed in this winter. (lail Kathr n Riley stuck her nose outside the door long enough to snatch a diamond from Churchill Hlakey, who doesn ' t deserve such a fate. We were told that E. Love, Nell Williams, and Hetty Beekly were in school (not that we cared really). It was only an unconfirmed rumor — no one has seen them yet. Zannie Mae Maiuiing went with her gay Maurice Ogden and they had low pseudo-sophisticated chats about the finer things of life on an empt street corner. Her distressed sisters hoped " it wasn ' t catching. " Nancy Gray was left to uphold the activity tradition which the Pifis didn ' t really have anyway. She worked hard impressing no one but her.self and poor John Cheek whose pin she barely found room for on the front of her sweater. " Porge " O ' Hornett put on Bill ' s Beta pin. We ' ll admit she was perfectly true to him. Janet Johnson, pardon, we mean Janet K. Johnson, spent the year fluffing and being fluffed by cadets at the North Base (veril y, where else do they have them around here?). She took a Beta pin for a while; it was just to see how it would feel to own a frat badge. Bob " Now that all the boys are gone, why don ' t you look at me " Hughes, who spent two semesters social climbing sorority way, got as far as the front door with pre.xy Barbara Berry. Maybe it was the aroma from yon Theta dormicide or the sound of Bonnie Fitzwater ' s gavel that lured him away. Or maybe he found going with a Pi Phi an unnecessary evil. He just about broke even either way. Pi Phi party girl Darlene Housley forgot about all( ?) other male attractions to worship " Bluey " Fowler ' s idol, Bluey Fowler. The law school found greener and more responsive fields, but there still seems to be a tie between Darlene and SAE Jack Trigg — could be the pin, which is kept in a box so no one can see it, especially Fowler. Eileen " Oooh, Those Navy Flyers " Seevers had trouble with two naval cadets from El Baso Norte. The both got out on the same nights. NRO Johnn - Williams, the original of all complexes, brought out his same ole line the first semester and tried it on unknowing Helen Jane Laughlin. The sob story- worked once again, and the campus again .saw the usual three stages: (1) " Please go steady with me; we ' re so cute together. " (2) " AVe ' ll have such a cute little home with the money I get digging ditches. " AND (3) " Life ith Father would be better than this! — Goodbye! " With that ousting, he tried again to break into Pi Phi news through two of the more experienced gals. That was to no avail — so he decided to try another homestead and has now passed the first stage with Tri Delt Joan Grable. Vhen Pi Phi ' s annexed the " Pride of Henryetta " Alice Jane Orendorft, they also received a huge box all tied up with blue ribbon. Vithin it lay more trouble than had ever been allowed past first date ; a huge life size picture of " Jakie " — 90 telephone bills from San Diego — a battered picture of Don Jones (broken hero of the past) — a book on " How I Can Be So Dumb and Don ' t Know It. " TESTED BY THE HOURGLASS OF TIME ... to give you quality service — that is the Varsity Book Shop. It is a tradition on the university campus for students to visit the shop " on the comer " when they have books to buy or sell.
