STUDENT SENATE The present Student Senate convened in April of 1946 to perform the administrative, legisla- tive, and judicial duties of the student governing body of the University of Oklahoma. The first contest within the Senate was over the election of the President for the forthcoming year. Nor- val Covington, sponsored by Fred Barbee; Le- vona Williams, supported by Bill Epperson, and Jim McNeely, backed by Ferrill Rogers, were the contestants for the coveted position. The fact that McNeely won provoked some com- ment from the general student rank and file to the effect that the student government had sunk to a new low when it was possible for a former student of Oklahoma A 6 M to be elected Pres- ident of the Student Senate. Other officers elected were Levona Williams. Vice President, Norval Covington, Recording Secretary, Fran- cille Rice, Corresponding Secretary, Fred Bar- bee, Parliamentarian, Betty Yarger. Publicity Chairman, and Kay Cooley, Treasurer. In the last two meetings of the Spring Sem- ester of 1946, McNeely and Cooley were se- lected to be delegates to attend a Student Gov- ernment Convention in Tulsa; a charter for Sigma Phi Epsilon, social fraternity, was ap- proved; one hundred and fifty nine dollars was voted to be granted to Chi Delta Phi to make possible the further publication of the Blue Stocking caused comments from many students. During the summer session the Student Sen- ate did not meet as a body but performed what administrative functions as were necessary through its officers. At the first meeting of the Senate in the Fall Semester, it was determined that three officers. Fred Barbee, Norval Covington and Francille Rice, were no longer in school. James Steele, Donna Douglass and Hugh Hardy were elected to fill their vacancies. The action of the Senate in appropriating money to make it possible for the Sports Editor of the Oklahoma Daily to go to the OU-Army football game provoked ad- verse criticism as to the manner in which the Senate was spending its funds. The most humorous event to the student at large occurred when the Senate found that it had elected three too many University College Senators. The temporary dilemma into which the Senate was thrown by this development was solved by temporarily amending the Constitution. Though criticized for many things, the Student Senate of the school year 1946-47 has conscien- tiously attempted to fulfill in some small mea- sure its purpose and improve and unify student academic, cultural, recreational, and social con- ditions at Oklahoma University.

Dues are paid by each as a part of the general enrollment fee. With these funds. AWS pursues its purposes of promoting better relations among women, and encouraging high scholarship and participation in worthwhile activities. The executive board is the governing body of AWS. It is composed of four officers, chosen annually at an all coed election, the chairmen of the various committees and presidents of the women ' s general honorary and council organ- izations. Pan Hellen ic, consisting of all sorority women, and Women ' s League, consisting of all independent women, also work under AWS to provide unity among coeds. This board sets the rules for all coeds, such as calling hours, curfew, house and campus reg- ulations, and provides for their enforcement. It also directs the various projects of the association. Outstanding among AWS projects is the an- nual Career Conference, which was held for the seventh time this year. The speakers, who were leaders in their vocational fields, came from all over the United States to give information and career opportunities to university students. OU ' s Career Conference has been studied by other schools and has been classed as one of the best in the nation. Orientation of freshman coeds and new women students is now under the jurisdiction of AWS. A series of coed counseling programs is held at the beginning of each semester as a part of this general program. An official booklet, " OU and You, " which explains the functions of AWS and coed groups, is given to each new woman student. The Activities Festival, which features booths explaining all campus organizations, is another annual event sponsored by AWS. This serves as an introduction to extra curricular activities for all new students. The Coed Ball, which follows the Mortar Board Walkout, is an all girl get together which is sponsored each year by the AWS. Other committees have been set up to have charge of university service projects, hospitality and special problems. Officers of the Association of Women Stu- dents for the year 1946-1947 are: President, Pat Bynum; Vice President, Jane Anne Cockrell; Secretary, Janelle Liebolt; Treasurer, Jeanne Sneckner. Miss Virginia Reinecke, counselor of Women, acts as sponsor. Page S3 pi rr- n • % 1 MgJHj H » ' " ' S K Left to right: Hodge, Head, Schiefer. Morris. Teagardin.

During the first semester Prexy James Steele kept the UAB wheels rolling, while treasurer Bob White could be found going over the budget most any day. Carolyn Cooley, of the Summer UAB. started all the new and old students off right with the annual Fall Mixer, attended by a record crowd of several thousand. Curley Morris spent hours making big plans for Union dances with his many (and varied) dance committees, while Roland Champion started off the school year by plunging into Homecoming plans and putting on the biggest Homecoming ever. Past board members, Johnny Wilson and Jim Legette, began the new year with best of inten- tions, making the Union Activities office their official hangout as they worked on their respec- tive duties as vice president and secretary. Un- fortunately, school work caught up with them, and they were forced to bid their Board friends adieu and hit the books. Presshound Dick Dale attacked our photo and news publicity problems, setting up UAB pho- tography contests. Old timer Wayne Fuller, past president of the Summer UAB. set out to make the Lounge a place for lounging, sponsor- ing music hours, informal lounge dances and Sunday open houses. Union Activities Director. Mary Lou Stubbe- man. bursting as always with new ideas for the Board, kept up her futile search for lodging for hobby projects. Lester Lloyd frantically read up on chess and bridge rules in preparation for tournaments and made arrangements for the Intercollegiate Bridge tournament play-offs, and for free bridge lessons. Winding up the first semester, a comic initiation was held for new members at the annual UAB Christmas party, where the new recruits revealed many hidden talents. Succeeding James Steele as president second Page 84 semester, June Hodge took over the UAB reins, and the Board was off on another busy whirl. Jo Schiefer, who proved her ability on the Union Christmas decorations, took charge of the free dancing classes, replacing Taffy Williams, who turned her attention to interviewing committee applicants and to the Radio Conference recep- tion. With the new semester former UAB members Francelle Rice Lambertson and Bob Lunsford returned to the fold, and buckled down to the UAB swing of things. Secretary Thelma Dickey gleefully handed over her minute book to Bette Yarger, who, as chairman of Now or Never Days, went on a record search for Dogpatch campus characters for the hilarious variety show, " Kickapoo Kapers, " and rounded up bashful men for the eager gals to chase in the " Dogpatch Dash. " Curley succeeded Taffy as vice president, and as membership and social chairman directed his energies toward selecting UAB members and throwing bigger and better parties. To Curley also goes credit for the whopping success of the Spring Mixer for new students. While all this was happening, a UAB dream came true with the opening of the Snack Bar, christened the JUG (Just Union Gang), after a naming contest. It promptly became a favorite hangout of the Board members, and many Union activity ideas were hatched over the coffee cup in the JUG. Brushing up on her accounting, Sally Tee- gardin found herself, as treasurer, knee-deep in UAB budgets second semester, while Thelma Dickey went all out on plans for the annual Spring All-Committee UAB picnic. Roland Champion turned his talents toward recruiting talent for the UAB files and Mary Margaret Til- lery ' s thoughts were on super UAB dances. Chita Roberts, chock full of ideas, joined the board along with Diane Bumpas, who spent her time dreaming up knocked out posters and circu- lars to promote the UAB ' s many spring activities. All this time, still glowing from the tremendous success of the summer baby parade, plans were being laid for another Diaper Derby. No doubt about it — the first post-war college year at OU was a great one for the Union and the UAB. Page 85 Page 86 Firsf Row: Beth Irwin, Ed., Hobart, Bob West. A T U, A S.

By training lawyers, the social engineers who develop and apply the rules and standards which govern all the human activities that make civilized life possible. Without law, there would be no civil society, and without civil society there could be neither security nor progress. 2. By aiding the bar ' s system of continued education of lawyers in active practice, through participation of the faculty in the programs of legal institutes and bar association meetings. 3. By providing, through the writings of the Board of Student Contributors to the Oklahoma Bar Association Journal, scholarly comment upon current decisions of the state and federal courts of interest to Oklahoma lawyers. 4. Through research and writing by faculty members, contributing to legal knowledge and progress. 5. Through the participation of the faculty in the work of the various agencies dedicated to progress in the law and improving the admin- istration of justice. 6. Through the assistance given by the law faculty in the general program of the Univer- sity, by providing legal advice and counsel upon various activities. In particular, mention should be made of the Research Institute and the University Press, although the school ' s assist- ance is available to all branches of the University. 7. Through advancing the standards of legal education, by adhering to and advancing beyond the rules urged by the American Bar Associa- tion, and prescribed by the Supreme Court of Oklahoma. 8. Through the contributions of its graduates to the wise conduct of public affairs in many fields of governmental service, and to the de- velopment of informed public opinion. 9. By providing a center of legal research, in the law library, where the lawyers of the state may come to work upon problems which confront them. 10. Through the leadership furnished by its graduates in the civic, the social and scholarly life of the state. The first organized effort was made to establish a School of Law at the University on December 20. 1907, one month after state- hood. It took the form of a resolution adopted by the State Bar Association at its first meeting, in Oklahoma City. This resolution called for " such legislation by the present legislature as may be necessary for the establishment, equip- ment and maintenance of a law department in connection with the State University, and for furnishing of such buildings, libraries, etc. as may be necessary to properly equip such an Pago J 46 M % apt u., ] ' It- ' 3 m {1- n 1 2£ ' i ' ' ■ v ' ! 1 1 m 1 1 B ' 1 HI LJ 1 lllll ■ r — m 1 Firsf rou ' , c f to right: Aubrey, Keller, Edmondson, Cheek, Fielding, Stenling, Holloway, Bennett, Huckin, Harmon.

" A committee consisting of W. M. Newell of Norman, and W. I. Bilbert of Okla- homa City, drew bills calling for the appropria- tion of $95,000 to effect the purpose of the reso- lution and these bills w ere introduced in the first state legislature. This early movement proved unsuccessful but it indicated the deep interest of the legal profession in the establish- ment of such a school at the University. The organization of the School of Law was finally provided by a resolution of the Board of Regents on April 3, 1909. At that time a committee of the Board was appointed " to get a dean and faculty to organize the School so that it may be opened at the beginning of the school year in September, 1909. " The State Bar was invited to appoint a committee to co- operate with the Regents in the selection of a dean for the new school. The committees se- lected Professor Julien C. Monnet of the George Washington University Law School, as dean. Thus the Law School opened in the Fall of 1909 with an entering first year class of 47. The faculty for that year consisted of Dean Monnet and Dr. John B. Cheadle. The first classes were held in what then was the museum room on the third floor of the old Science fiall. In the Spring of 1910 they were moved to the basement of the old Library building, now the home of the School of Education. It was not until the Fall of 1913 that the present Law Building was ready for oc- cupancy. This building was dedicated in 1914 and by a unanimous petition of the Univer- sity student body was named Monnet Hall. Only first year work was offered in the school year 1909-1910 but the Curriculum was enlarged each succeeding year and in the year 1912 the first degrees were conferred by the School of Law on students who had started and completed their work in the new school. As a result of an unusual situation the first class to receive law degrees from the University consisted of six men, graduated in 1910. none of whom had ever been enrolled in the University. Dean C. B. Ames of Epworth University in Oklahoma City, had been conducting a law school at Okla- homa City in connection with Epworth Univer- sity. He was also very much interested in the new law school, which he had helped establish. In the Spring of 1910, Dean Ames proposed to the trustees of Epworth University that they discontinue the law school in Oklahoma City, which they did. The State University accepted the records of Epworth University students who had completed prescribed law courses there and issued special diplomas giving details of the transfer. From 1909 to the entrance of the United States into World War I, the Law Page 147 First miv, kit to riglU: Bandy, Hendrickson, Lee. Brett, Stratton, Harlcy, Roger, Loyd. Spradlin, Lipc.

JUNIOR LAW School ' s national rating kept a pace matched only by its enormous increase in enrollment. In addi- tion to his duties as dean of the School of Law, Dean Monnet served as president of the Univer- sity from the Spring of 1911 to May 1912. when Stratton D. Brooks assumed the duties of that position. New members were added to the faculty as the School grew and former mem- bers resigned to accept positions with other schools. Professor Henry H. Foster, a graduate of the Harvard Law School, was added to the faculty in 1910. Professor Foster served until 1920. Professor Marion R. Kirkwood, who later became dean of the Stanford University Law School, joined the fac- ulty in 1911. Professor Warren A. Seavey fol- lowed Professor Kirkwood in 1919. serving two years. Members of the present faculty include Dr. W. Page Keeton, who came to the Uni- versity in September. 1946. to be dean of the Law School; Dr. John B. Cheadle, professor of law and legal advisor to the president: Dr. Maurice H. Merrill, professor of law; Dr. Vic- tor H. Kulp, professor of law, and Dr. W. B. Swinford, professor of law, who teaches pro- cedure. Recent appointments to the faculty in- clude those of Earl Sneed, Jr.. associate pro- fessor of law, who assumed teaching duties in October 1945: Dr. Olin L. Browder and Dr. El- bridge D. Phelps, professors of law, both of whom joined the staff in January. 1946. and John Wesley Reed, associate professor of law. who came to O.U. in September. 1946. The first World War struck the Law School a hard blow as far as enrollment was concerned. As the young men of the nation went off to war the enrollment in the school dropped lower than at any other time during the history of the school. However, this was not destined to last for long and soon the school began to increase in size once more. A major part of the success of the school can be attributed to the adaptation of the Harvard case system of teaching. At the time the school was started there was much contro- versy over the technique of teaching law. Three different systems were in use. The case system, developed by the Harvard Law School, the lec- ture system and the text book system. The case system was the younger of the three and critics had not yet accepted it entirely. Dean Monnet. a graduate of the Harvard Law School, had been trained in the use of the case system and thus it was natural that he start the new school out with this system. In this system the method of instruction is based upon the development of legal principles through the study and discus- sion of leading cases, supplemented by consid- eration of statutory and other materials, by ex- Page 148 First row, left to right: Moreland, Upton, Adams, Savage, Morrow, Burbage, Cudd, Harrison.

JUNIOR LAW ercises in legal draftsmanship, and by a practice court to give training in courtroom technique. As the years passed the Harvard case system came to be more and more widely used and is now generally accepted as the best method of teaching. Another factor contributing to the continued success of the School is the Law Li- brary. This library, under the supervision of Librarian A. H. Huggins, is constantly growing and contains thousands of volumes. These books have been carefully selected and for the greater part are all essential books to the stu- dents using the library for study and research. The library had its start back about 25 years ago when the legislature passed a law to the effect that the state law librarian would be au- thorized to trade off all extra copies of codes, session laws, reports of the supreme court and other state printed material concerned with state records, in exchange for publications from pub- lishing houses and publications from other state governments. Of the literature thus gained one half was to go to the state law library and one half was to go to the University Law School Library. The will of the late Honorable Clifford L. Jackson of Muskogee bequeathed his entire law library consisting of seven thousand vol- umes to the Law School Library. These books, kept permanently separate, are known as the Clifford L. Jackson Memorial Library. In 1941 Dean Monnet retired with the title of dean emeritus of the University Law School. For 32 years Dean Monnet constantly promoted and improved the quality of the Law School through his position as founder and dean. The ideal of the School, from the first, was to train men as members of the profession, conscious of social responsibilities and of duty to the courts, rather than to serve as a mere trade school. It accepted the responsibility of training men for a broader professional service, a very different service from that performed by many commer- cial law schools whose sole aim is to coach men to pass bar examinations. Dean John G. Hervey assumed the responsibilities and guided the school during World War II. This responsibility is now being carried out under the administra- tion of Dr. W. Page Keeton, who became dean of the Law School in September, 1946. The Law School Faculty has realized that the teacher in a professional school should not re- main aloof from the problems affecting his prac- ticing brethren. The teacher ' s research may enable him to be of assistance in solving these problems. In turn, his teaching will be en- riched immeasurably by the contact with those in the active practice and by the understanding of " the law in action " thereby derived.

JUNIOR LAW faculty therefore are happy to co-operate with the bar in its organized activities for the im- provement of the administration of justice and for the advancement of legal knowledge. The program has been promoted in many ways. At present under the administration of Dean Keeton. a series of lectures are being given by members of the Supreme Court and the Criminal Court of Appeals, by prominent judges, attorneys and state officials and by visiting lecturers from out- side of the state. Twenty-five lectures have been scheduled to be given during the course of the current school year. Through this system of outside lectures given by e.xperts in a partic- ular field the students benefit not only from the experience and thinking of the members of the faculty but of the best lawyers in the state. Another program being carried out jointly by the students and faculty members consists of legal research, which has two principal features. First it trains students in the art of finding and applying legal precepts to concrete cases, and second it aids in the improvement of the ad- ministration of justice since information col- lected is published for universal use. As a whole, the Law School has a record of high achievement. It maintains standards higher than those set as a minimum by the As- sociation of American Law Schools of which it is a member. It is on the list of law schools ap- proved by the American Bar Association. Here, too, it is in advance of the minimum requirement. Its graduates have achieved a success upon the bar e.xaminations of this and other states sub- stantially in excess of that commonly attained by those of other schools, even of wider na- tional reputation. The Law School is proud of the distinguished record of achievement that has been made by its graduates and former stu- dents in the 34 years since the members of the first class received their degrees. At present, 13 Oklahoma district judges and the state at- torney general are graduates of the Law School. Out of nine members of the state supreme court, six of them are graduates of the Law School. Two of the three members of the criminal court of appeals are University Law School grad- uates. Law School representation in the legis- lature usually includes ten senators and 20 to 25 members of the house. Three law students are members of the 1947 legislature. They are Senator Tom G. Jelks, Chickasha. and Paul Harkey, Idabel, and John W. Russell. Okmul- gee, both members of the house. Graduates of the School are also prominent in the business and civic life of the state and their respective communities. The primary function of the School of Law is Page ISO First row, left to right: Bates, Hansen, Christian, Gates, Horigan, brye. Baker, Humphreys, Davis.

Though specific rules of law may be forgotten easily, the legal type of mentality, once devel- oped in the student ' s mind, cannot be displaced. To accomplish this foremost objective, the pros- pective lawyer enters into the consideration of a seemingly endless number of cases, which gives him a background of legal information. In addition to the courses in pleading and prac- tice, and the practical suggestions given through- out the courses by the regular instructors and the special lecturers, a practice court is maintained in order to afford the student an opportunity of acquainting himself with the regular sequence of steps in litigation and of learning by actual ex- perience what actions or proceedings should be brought, how to bring them, and how to handle a case until its close. Seniors act as counsel and every effort is made to reproduce the conditions of actual practice in the Oklahoma courts. This work is supplemented by lectures pointing out errors and discussing questions of procedure of a more general nature applicable to other juris- dictions. The presiding instructor is an attorney of experience and the aim is to supply as far as possible an actual working knowledge of trial procedure so that graduates on leaving school will be prepared at once to enter upon all phases of the work of the profession. Enrolment in the school reached a new peak at the beginning of the fall semester of 1946, with a total of 375 students. Approximately ninety per cent of the student body is comprised of veterans. A group of 20 Seniors entered their final semester as the school year opened, and the ranks of the remaining 33 members of the class were swelled at mid-term as 34 students finished their second semester as Juniors and started Senior studies. And as 67 students completed the first half of their Junior year at mid-term, they were joined by 51 others who moved up the academic ladder to become Juniors, begin- ning their second year in the school. Senior class officers are Frank Elkouri, Okla- homa City, president; Joseph M. O ' Laughlin, Oklahoma City, vice president: Mary Elizabeth Co.x, Holdenville, secretary, and Leo E. Thomp- son, Durant, treasurer. David L. McQuiston, Oklahoma City Senior, holds the position of Most High and Almighty Potentate, Lord and Keeper of the Queen ' s Bench. Junior officers are Lewis M. Watson, Ada, president; William M. Allen, Oklahoma City, vice president, and Mrs. Hazel LeVally, secretary-treasurer. Fresh- man officers are William N. Christian, Broken Bow, president; Edward M. Frye, Muskogee, vice president, and James E, Horigan, Oklahoma City, secretary-treasurer. Page 151 First row, left to right: Allen. Baker, Garrett. Bell. W eaver, McLaury.

FRESHMAN LAW For the purpose of engaging in appellate ar- gument, twenty members of the Freshman class formed the Harlan Stone Bar. Robert J. Em- ery, Bartiesville, was selected to serve as Chief Justice, and James E. Horigan. Oklahoma City, was named clerk. The objectives of the bar are to increase the abilities of members in the use of legal libraries, and in the organization and oral presentation of legal questions in appellate argu- ment. Biggest event of the year for the School was the Annual Law School Banquet, held Dec, 12 in the Union ballroom, with Joe Looney, prom- inent attorney of Wewoka and graduate of the school, as guest speaker. George E. Defen- baugh. Junior from Shawnee, headed the com- mittee making arrangements for the banquet, at which the faculty members and members of the State Bar Association were guests. Following in the footsteps of their predeces- sors, law students of 1946-47 play a leading role in campus activities, and in class, encounter the same difficulties in negotiating the mental ob- stacles of legal study. " Law is a jealous mistress! " Though reason- able men may differ in opinion on some matters, no Freshman lawyer will deny the soundness of this old maxim after his second day in school. His life is thenceforth circumscribed by Jealousy of the Law, " till death or despair do us part. " It is not uncommon for a pre-law student to arise daily with that " Oh. What a Beautiful Morning " feeling. That fades into the shadows of dusk and becomes just a fond memory of yes- terday. For when he passes through the portals of Monnet Hall, meeting such characters as " trespass quare clausam fregit " and " de bonis asportatis, " and learns of the peculiar character- istic of his new mistress, his tune changes hope- fully to " Oh, Lady, Be Good to Me. " Now comes the time for finals — the most cheerful man- ifestation of happiness he can muster is likely to be just a vituperative epithet. Woe be unto the unsuspecting Freshman who has pursued In Re Gendron and In Re Polemus to the exclusion of Sunday ' s funnies! With four whole hours to write a Contracts paper, he finds himself con- fronted with the entangled legal relations of Gravel Gertie, Themesong, Influence and The Brow. Life is not without its brighter moments, however, even in class. Students will remember " each fine distinction " of a certain incident in Dr. Kulp ' s Torts class. One student committed a grave breach of duty by coming to class un- prepared to recite. Unfortunately, out of the multitude of names on the roster, his was called first. Lifting his eyes from his book, he ex- plained with considerable embarrassment that he Page J 52 First row, left to right: Lunn, Rahhal.

Third roiv: Saied, Smith, Carr, Clifford, Emery, Virtue, Roberts. FRESHMAN LAW couldn ' t give the case. " I appreciate the infor- mation, " said Dr. Kulp, " but I only wanted to give you this letter. " And then there ' s the one about the character who smugly revealed with great confidence in a Property post-mortem that he had answered each question adequately with one simple phrase, " Res Ipsa Loquitur. " Just to demonstrate to Mr. Browder that he had passed the " Et tu. Brute " stage of legal terminology, the legal whiz had translated the phrase into English: " The Thing Speaks for Itself. " The Freshman early discovers one definite advantage of his position. There ' s nothing unethical about posing a personal legal problem in class if it bears on the subject under discussion. Conse- quently Paul Harkey ' s classmates weren ' t too surprised the day after Paul inquired about the legal rights of an involuntary bailor, to read in an Oklahoma City paper: " Legislator ' s Car Picked up on Police Order for Illegal Parking, Harkey Writes City Manager. " Legal cause is that cause which is a justly at- tachable cause, a student reads. And what rea- sonably prudent professor could deny that there was sufficient legal cause for a student ' s substi- tution of the word " defendant " for " plaintiff " in reciting on a case, especially after the book had been in Dallas for the week-end of the O.U.- Texas game. Or who would say that a certain Junior, who was in doubt about the legal wisdom he had just displayed on an Equity final, didn ' t have valid reason for asking the instructor, " Do you want us to write our name on this quiz- book? " Lewis Watson wouldn ' t tell his best friends about it, but word circulated around the Law barn that Lew condemned himself heartily as he left Bills and Notes one day. In consider- ing the legal aspects of a game of chance be- tween Terry Lee and Charles C. Charles of comic fame, he completely omitted the fact that Miss Burma was due $200 on a side bet she had placed on the last throw of the dice. It was in the same class, in reply to Mr. Sneed ' s request for a definition of a certificate of deposit, that another Junior answered, innocently enough, that it was a " slip showing . . . " Yes, and there comes a time in every embryo lawyer ' s life that he is haunted by dreams of a garbage can falling from a negligently loaded truck and hitting the pavement, which caused the lid to sail through the air and hit the plaintiff ' s spouse on the head as he was lying in a cot by the roadside, which in turn caused the plaintiff, as she stood in the window of her home looking out over the scene of the accident, to suffer the usual consequences, whereby she experienced great emotional dis- turbance. But for a law student of 1946-47, there ' s always relief from the complexity of legal study in the magic words, " Say, Joe. did I ever tell you about the time my outfit hit Paris . . . ?

The International Legal Fraternity of Phi Delta Phi, the oldest professional fraternity in America, composed of Lawyers and Law stu- dents, was founded in 1869 at the University of Michigan, Law Department. It was organized for the promotion of high scholarship in legal study and to promote a higher standard of pro- fessional ethics and culture in the law schools and in the legal profession at large. Since its foundation Phi Delta Phi has grown in stature and numbers until it completely dom- inates and unquestionably leads all in its field. Charters have been issued to " Inns " in sixty- eight leading law schools and to a number of " Barrister Inns ' of graduate members. An amazingly large number of its members have achieved unusual prominence in American affairs. Three Presidents of the United States and a large number of Chief and Associate Jus- tices of the United States Supreme Court were bona fide members. Honorary memberships are few, and those awarded only for recognized con- tributions in the field of jurisprudence. Holmes Inn, Phi Delta Phi. was organized in the School of Law. University of Oklahoma, in 1912 when a charter was issued to the Oliver Wendell Holmes Law Club. An historical per- sonal letter from that august Supreme Court jus- tice, whose name was given the Inn. is one of the prized possessions of the local group. Membership is extended to law students of outstanding character and scholastic standing. wMth at least one full semester of law study. A grade average of 2.5 is required in law work. Local activities of the fraternity include lun- cheon meetings and lecture meetings at which leading lawyers, jurists and laymen are principal guests. An annual award of merit is made to a member for outstanding individual scholastic achievement. Six members of the Law faculty are members of Phi Delta Phi: Dean W. Page Keeton (Thomas ' 31); John B. Cheadle (Green ' 02); Victor H. Kulp (Holmes, hon.): and Earl Sneed. Jr. (Holmes ' 35). The National Council of Phi Delta Phi pub- lishes a quarterly journal. The Brief, dealing with national and local activities of the fraternity. Ar- ticles are included which stress the purposes, functions and ideals of the body; ethics, attorney- client relations, and the practice of the law as a profession of great public worth. Members hold annual meetings in connection with the American Bar Association in general convention. Page 154 A R M Y Page J 55 COMMANDANT and STAFF Colonel Jerome J. Watlk . Jh.. Commandant Colonel J. J. Waters is once more associated with the members of the Reserve Officers Training Corps at the University of Oklahoma. During his former tour of duty here he was instructor of sophomore classes and in his travels in this past war he met and served with many of his former students at various places from China to Chile. The Alumni Association records contain the names of over 1 1 ,000 former students who served in the Armed Forces in all capacities during the war. Ap- proximately thirty-two per cent of those who served held commissions as officers. All of these former stu- dents received a portion of their training in the ROTC at the University. The great majority of these former students were in the Field Artillery and were instrumental in the development of artillery methods, together with commanding these units on the battlefield. The remainder of the students, pre- dominately Ordnance, were equally instrumental in the advancement of the several arms and commanded service units who delivered the goods. The records of these former students are filled with outstanding achievements and valuable contri- butions to the war effort, both on and off the battle- field.

The important role played by the Reserve Officer during this recent war is known to all our people. The necessity for the continuance of training Reserve Officers has been emphasized by several statements made by General of the Army Dwight D. Eisenhower in recent talks. Those who are now members of the ROTC of the University of Oklahoma are the keystone around which will be built our post-war national defense. Our post-war program offers a challenge to every student. The courses have been raised to a college level. The methods of instruction are those which were developed and adopted through experience gained in training our vast army. Additional units have been activated at OU which include Air and Quartermaster courses. The War Department is furnishing the latest type of weapons and training aids which afford an opportunity to combine theoretical and practical training. The ma- jority of men in the advance courses are veterans. They are the pioneers of our post-war Reserve or- ganization and are building for the country and themselves a more secure future.

Wy- ant, three members of this group staff, demonstrating the position of attention. Col. James Andrews, shown on the left, is the Second Semester Group Colonel. The lower left is a picture of the Group Headquarters Battery. The R.O.T.C. is an essential part of the system of military training provided for by Congress in the Defense Acts of 1916 and 1920. The primary object of the R.O.T.C. in time of peace is to pro- vide systematic military training at civil- ian educational institutions to qualify selected students of such institutions as reserve officers. Military training was first seen at the University of Oklahoma in April, 1917, when a regiment was formed of student volunteers under the supervision of Professor Guy Y. Williams, acting Commandant. Professor Williams is still teaching on the Oklahoma campus. In the fall of 1917, Professor Guy Y. Williams, with four other members of the faculty and thirty-eight students, went to Fort Sheri- dan, Illinois, to receive military training in order to enable them to instruct in military science on their return to the University. In September, 1918, the University of Oklahoma offered its entire equipment to the aid of the government. The Student Army Train- ing Corps was established here and functioned from October to De- cember. With the start of the second semester an advanced course was activated for veterans who had had one year or more of active mili- tary service. The second semester of the 1946-47 school year the new advanced course was well under way with one of the largest number of members that the school ever had. C. DET Colonel J. mes Andrews GROUP HEADQUARTERS BATTERY Pcrgo J 58 Army life is not all march, march, march . . . even if some of the ROTC students do try to convince you of this fact. Most of the artillery courses on the campus are devoted to the training of would-be Bat- tery Officers. If any of you have been down toward the South Campus in back of the biology building you may have no- ticed the boys slaving over the big guns. Also, Army life is not all work on the drill field or over the guns. A great deal of the time is spent in classrooms studying the recent developments of modern day army tactics in conjunction with the over- all policy of preparedness now being fol- lowed by the Armed Services. All in all, the ROTC training is a well rounded course on army life and tactics. The Military Band, below, is an integral part of the Army ROTC unit located on the University campus. It is composed of basic military students who, also, participate in the University Marching Band. Members of the Military Band are selected each fall on the basis of instrumentation and musical abil- ity. This unit has been under the direction of Leon- ard H. Haug and Walter Haderer. The student commander for the first semester was Cadet Capt. Vance Jennings. The position of Drum Major was held by Richard Thompson during the first semester and John W. Smith for the second term. A good march, well played, has an invigorating effect on all people whether they be civilian or mili- tary, and in the parade, good march music stimulates and unifies a unit in precision and pride that can come from no other source than from a good band. We have, even through the years of war, main- tained an e.xcellent ROTC 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.

An assignment of the Concord was to proceed to Chile and Peru to promote good will — and to protect oil properties from encroaching Nazis. Captain Armentrout ' s last assignment before as- suming command of the University NROTC in May, 1945, was as executive officer on the USS Astoria, which served with the fleets of Admirals Halsey and Spruance.

Signals are flashed to these instruments automati- cally by a complex electronic " brain, " allowing students to locate, track down and sink the imaginary enemy with all the realism of an actual engagement e.x- cept the explosions and oil slick from the dying sub. Images of the pursuer and pursued and the searching finger of the sound beam are projected on a movie screen by the " brain " for ob- servation by the class instructor and students awaiting their turn at the device. The Anti Aircraft Gunnery Trainer was designed to give the potential offi- cers experience with the eccentricities of the Navy ' s compact gyroscopic gun- sight. With a realistic and nerve-wrack- ing background of recorded battle noise, the trainee tracks and fires at various types of attacking aircraft as they swoop in at him from a large movie screen. Hits and misses are recorded with the aid of an infra-red light projector and detector system. It is easily seen that the Navy Department is sparing no expense in developing the NROTC program and its reward will be forthcoming in the maintenance of the traditionally high standards of the officer corps of the United States Navy. This year marked the beginning of the Oklahoma University Naval ROTC Unit ' s function as a peacetime sup- ply of officers for Uncle Sam ' s fleet. From an accelerated wartime training program, the Naval Unit has converted smoothly to its role as a permanent source of men to help fill the ranks of the Officer Corps of the United States Navy. Realizing that the large number of officers which will be needed to operate our greatly expanded Fleet cannot be met adequately by the Naval Academy, the Navy Department has turned to the outstanding schools of the nation for an answer to the great demand. Among these is the University of Oklahoma. Naval Officers Staff: Lt. Comdr. Martin, Capt. Hamlin (USMC). Capt. E. W. Armentrout, Jr., Ensign Negele, and Comdr. W. M.

Benear NAVAL PLATDDNS Established June 13. 1940. to train officer candidates during the emergency and for what looked like approach- ing war. the Unit turned out a large number of young reserve officers who served ably in every theater of war. Now it has been selected to continue its contribution to national welfare by turning out the same caliber of well educated men for the sea-going forces. Men enrolled in the Unit this year fell into two main classifications: Contract and Regular students. Included in the ranks of the contract students were all men who participated in the wartime program during its closing months, falling short by some few credit hours of the number required for commissioning. These men at- tended school on their GI bill allowances to complete their training and finally receive their commissions in the inac- tive or active reserve. Those who chose a tour of active duty will soon be eligible to apply for transfer into the Regular Navy. The Regular students were the new men in the program who entered under the Navy ' s new Holloway Plan. This plan allowed qualified and carefully selected freshmen to enroll in the NROTC with tuition, books, fees, and a monthly allowance of fifty dollars granted them by the Navy Department until they receive their degree and commission. These men are required to serve a minimum of two years on active status upon graduation. Returning students who were members of this Unit last year discovered several changes in the old outfit. The first and most immediately noticeable of these changes was the introduction into the staff of two repre- sentatives of the Marine Corps in the persons of Captain H. J. Hamlin and Master Sergeant Bud Tinker. Both men saw extensive duty in the Pacific war and both have quickly become well liked and respected by trainees under their instruction. Coiii[Kini llic C. L.

NAVAL PLATDDNS In 1926 the Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps was established in various universities throughout the country. Chief among these was the unit at the Univer- sity of California. Berkeley, California. The purpose of the Navy Department in founding this program was " to provide the Navy with basically well educated, partly trained young Naval Reserve and Marine Corps Reserve officers. " It was the original intention of the Navy to enlist these men in the Organized Naval Reserve in order that the older reserve officers could be retired. On June 13, 1940, the Secretary of the Navy in- formed the late President W. B. Bizzell that the Univer- sity of Oklahoma had been selected as the location for a Naval ROTC unit. Commander J. C. Van de Carr, USN. was recalled to active duty as the first commanding officer of the new unit. In September he assumed the office of Professor of Naval Science and Tactics at the University. Shortly after Pearl Harbor, Captain J. F. Donelson. USN (Ret.), relieved Commander Van de Carr as commanding officer of the unit. At its inception, the University ' s NROTC was an eight-semester curriculum divided into basic and ad- vanced training. Three classes were taken in during the civilian program. It never reached the full four-year schedule because the class of 1944 was accelerated and this geared up schedule continued m effect until the summer of 1946. In May, 1943, all trainees were officially inducted into the Navy and training was put on a year-round basis. After the enrollment of the class of 1946 in September. 1942. there was no new input of trainees until March, 1944, Shortly before the wars end, on May 1. 1945, command of the unit was given to Capt ain E, W. Arnien- trout. USN. The NROTC continued on a wartime basis at the University until June 30. 1946. ompany Officers: R. A. Barbero. D. E. Jones and C. R. Gates. First roir, left to right: Cipriani.

The big square building on the north side of thirteenth street symbolizes that part of nnedicine which the majority of students only observe casually, or else regard in awe- stricken wonder, like small children standing spellbound before a toy counter, hiere each fall, a new class of medical students is matriculated, and from beneath its pro- tecting wing, equal numbers of well-trained physicians emerge, to assume their places in the ceaseless struggle against disease.

At the Crippled Children ' s Hospital, students are given the opportunity to observe disease in its most tragic form. It IS satisfying to watch sick children regain health and vigor, and set out to make their contribution to the world ' s progress. But the heart- breaking spectacle of the occasional hopeless case cries mutely for an answer to the riddle. The challenge offered by those who endowed, and who support this, and similar Institutions, cannot be — and is not — taken lightly.

In the University Hospital, students may observe the problems of medicine, hie re, they are allowed to follow the course of adult patients who come under the care of the hospital staff. With this tutelage, the science of medicine, which they have spent much time and effort acquiring, receives its veneer of medicine ' s " art, " and starts them down the path toward medical maturity. hIere, also, they eventually learn that — death is real.

Dr. Gray, in his short time in Oklahoma, has come to be known in Medical cir- cles throughout the state as a competent and courageous leader, and an expert in his field. Coming to us from the Deanship of the Medical Col- lege of Virginia, Dr. Gray has had wide experience in the field of public Health, having worked and studied in the south, and in the west, with several Public Health depart- ments, and with the Kellogg Foundation in Michigan. He received his B. S. Degree from Grinnell College, and his M. D. at Johns Hopkins. He was awarded the Mas- ter of Public Health Degree while working on a Rocke- feller Foundation Fellowship at Harvard. Dean Gray is a member of the A.M. A., the American Public Health Association.

Every student has fond memories of when he first sat in " Little Joe ' s " class; his first time " up " when " Spanky " gave him the oral — quiz, that is. That intro- duction to H. E. Eleven, and his siblings; yes, those were the days when the student ' s heart was carefree — well, al- most anyhow. Of course, slide quizzes plus Dr. Richter ' s grading policy — i. e., " cut your throat at your own leisure " — coupled with the not too inviting, yet extremely interest- ing afternoons in " fourth-floor-East, " combined to make life one long succession of joys and frustrations that ex- Dr. John F.

Bright and early on the first morn- ing of the second semester, Freddy Freshman trudges happily to keep his rendezvous with " The Bull ' — Mason himself. Of course, sooner or later, " The Book " is opened, and the freshman begins to understand the true significance of acidosis when the pH of whale ' s milk is 3.5 — or maybe I skipped a line there somewhere.

" While a lecture by Dr. Hopps is different from one by Dr. Thurringer, and the regular meetings with Dr. Moore (later to be dubbed " Hot Dog for reasons long since lost in antiquity — and probably better left there) are a little less vigorous than some of the freshman classes, they are every bit as profound, and an hour earlier, to boot.

OPD is a little slice of heaven where confusion reigns, and the student decides that perhaps he ' d better go back and read another chapter of DeLee. In clerkship, to his surprise, he discovers that those Ph. D. ' s across the street were really teaching him medicine after all!!

Then, he experiences one of the greatest thrills a stu- dent of Medicine ever knows — some unknowing patient looks up at him, and calls him " Doctor. " The pleasant surprise of suddenly realizing that someone is depending on you for help which he cannot supply for himself, leaves a glow of satisfaction that is not to be surpassed too many times in this life.

Below: Jaundice (left) and Gyles await eagerly the arrival of the Professor before the 8:00 A. M. class. Our first attempt to make a diagnosis sets this year apart. We thought we knew how to examine a patient and knew the signs and symptoms of oh! so many diseases, but, man oh man. that first patient — we didn ' t know from nothing! Twenty-four hours ' work never seemed so short until we started to work up that new case assigned Sun- day morning. C. B. C. ' s and U. A. ' s came to mean more than just numbers on a sheet of paper. Eleven courses and their accompany- ing finals, oral surgical quizzes, plus the impromptu quizzing of ward rounds and O.P.D., made us " quiz happy.

Others directed a successful Gridiron, published the Yearbook and Apex Beat, and started the " Quarterly-Bulletin. " Hugh Nicholas was the first of us to pass the " National Board. " Aided and abetted by Ralph Payne, president, and Bob McLaughlin, Student Council president, our class began to grow up. All in all. in this year, we first saw the signs of far-off medical maturity, and started to blend the art and science of medicine, hoping that we might eventually become competent physicians. — Keith H, Kelly Parkhurst and Neely lapse into coma, while " Jake " and Garst doze.

We. the sophomores, often called the most " heterogeneous " class in school, feel that much of our claim to fame lies in the fact that we have more out-of- state members than any other class. California, Te.xas, Missouri, Wisconsin, New Hampshire, Nebraska, New York, Massachusetts. South Carolina. Mon- tana, O hio, New Mexico, Louisiana, Georgia, and Florida are all repre- sented. We have the highest percent- age of women students; also, we granted ourselves an extended Thanks- giving vacation, by popular vote of the class. The opening of the current academic year was heralded by innoculating needles, petri dishes, benzidrene, alco- hol (for Gram stains), hyperventilla- tion, sewage disposal, and cross connec- tions. With notable conscientiousness, we literally " knocked ourselves out " in pharmacology lab (using cyclopropane) . . . labored long and arduously over our microscopes, prying into the love lives of the staphylococci . . . witnessed as the front row became thoroughly plastered during Dr. Sell ' s cast tech- nique demonstration . . . are happy to report that the appalling oral bacterial floral did not convince us that the good- night kiss would ever be replaced by the more hygienic handshake . . . endured Page 198 Above: Burning the midnight oil. the ego-deflating edict from Dr. Hopps that we were the most attentive, industrious, and congenial class, BUT we " just missed the boat! " The ease with which we learned neurology attested to the pedagogic acumen of Dr. Prosser, but, perhaps, more to the thorough grounding in neuroanatomy we received from Dr. Barnard. So, finally, with our badge of achievement (the stethoscope) safely, yet conspicuously, tucked into our pockets, we completed the second semester content in knowing that at last we were approaching our ultimate goal — clinical medicine. We are confident that because of these two preliminary years, medicine itself will be simpler, and its difficult and intriguing lessons can be learned more easily, and completely. — R. Murphy and T.

If the class of 1950 should hold a re- union ten years from now. certain parts of our school life probably would elicit kiddings. It might happen something like this: Lab. partners would remind each other of the poor dissections they did; Mathey would be sitting in the front row, glasses in hand, all bedecked in a white jacket, primed to ask the speaker questions. Over in the corner, still smooching, would be Stewart and M o n f o r t . surrounded by " Little George, " " Baby Felitia, ' and Decimus Ultimus. Cameron would still be rav- ing about the histology lectures, which covered the OPA, foods, dogs, cats, and many other subjects too numerous to mention. " Long John " Rollins would be wondering when the " rat race " might end (it started with Dr. Richter, in case you have forgotten). After the convention, the class would gather at Salathiel ' s barn for cokes, songs by Henley, and dances by the " four girlies. " And after the festivities had ended, all would return to their practices, remembering the happy days when they were students, forgetting the blood, sweat, and tears extracted from them by a zealous faculty, intent on do- ing its job well. — JuDD Page 200 Above: Freshman Class Officers. Left to right: F. H. McGregor, A. Atteberry, Elmer Gentry, R. C. Mayfield, George Austin. As freshmen, we nestle in our little cocoons, taking, without question, the information and philosophy that is offered us. We think little about the source of that information, or how it was obtained — that lesson remains unlearned until the maturity that comes from intimate acquaintance with the science — and art — which we have chosen to live, finally arrives. It is for the freshman but to snuggle securely down into the warm bed which those who have gone before him have prepared; to labor diligently, never losing sight of his objective; always reminding himself, " I will emerge one day.

MODUS OPERANDI The well-known but little appreciated fact is. that behind every quiz, there ' s a secretary. But we don ' t hold it against the girls; we know they aren ' t to blame. In fact, they re pretty nice people to know, and we are very much indebted to them for the assistance they have given us in our efforts to publish the Sooner Medic. Of course, we are not only indebted to the Student Council, but they are indebted or us — that is, if the advertisers don ' t come through. Yes, publishers are important people to aspiring young authors (?) and the dozen-odd members of the student council have been quite patient, and at times indulgent with us. The Council is a relatively young organization. Founded only three years ago. it is already serving an important and indispensable function for the student body. Page 204 Below: Student Council.

Senior Class. a k ALPHA EPSILDN IDTA With the purpose in mind of maintaining a high standard among medical women and to help all women to a higher, more abundant life, a group of women physicians founded Alpha Epsilon Iota fifty-seven years ago. This fraternal organization for women in medi- cine has grown to become the largest of its kind with twenty-six active chapters. The Nu Chapter was in- stalled in Oklahoma in 1921. Dr. Leila Andrews has been the sponsor and inspiration since that time. The activities each year include social meetings with both men and women guest speakers, business meet- ings, an annual picnic for the members and their guests, and a banquet for women pre-medical students. These are enjoyed by the alumnae as well as those still in school. . The officers for 1946-47 were Carolyn Hays, Presi- dent; Gladys Smith, Vice-President: Helen Schmidt, Recording Secretary; Gwendolyne Peck, Treasurer; Millicent Marrs, Corresponding Secretary; and Alice Gambill, Reporter.

Page 205 PHI CHI Phi Chi Medical rraternity, which was founded for the purpose of bringing about a closer fellowship among men who are pursuing the study and practice of Medicine, is unusual in that it had a dual origin. At the University of Vermont, in 1889, the Alpha chapter was formed. This group subsequently joined forces with other similar organizations in medical col- leges in the East, and was later to be known as the Eastern Division, The Alpha Chapter of Phi Chi, South, was formed as an independent organization at the University of Louisville (now Louisville Medical College) in Kentucky, five years later. The two or- ganizations remained separate, until in 1897 it be- came apparent that they were actually identical, A merger was effected on February 26 of that year. From these beginnings, the present-day international organization of Phi Chi has grown. Our fraternity now recognizes 68 active chapters in the United States, and on foreign soil. Of a total census of ap- proximately 100,000 Doctors of Medicine who are associated with the eight leading American Medical Fraternities, more than 28,000 are lifetime members of Phi Chi. Omicron Kappa of Phi Chi was founded at the University of Oklahoma School of Medicine, on No- vember 25, 1922. Since that time it has risen to a position of leadership on our campus. Its present student roll numbers 76 active members, and 17 pledges, A substantial majority of the younger grad- uates of the School of Medicine, who were affiliated with a Medical Fraternity during their undergrad- uate years, are Phi Chis, This year saw a welcome change in the procedure Below: Officers, from the left: Endres, Alumni Chairman: Stream, Treasurer; Loucks. ludge Advocate, Not shown: Skeehan, Rush Cha at the regular monthly meetings. Most of the busi- ness was conducted in committee, and the major portion of the meeting-time was spent discussing the medical problems of the day, with active alumnae. The original " brain-child " of Prexy Bob Head, the idea was well received by members and alumni alike, A great deal of tangible benefit, as well as pleasur- able hours of friendly fellowship, was had by all who attended. Outstanding meetings were conducted by Dr. Wiley T, McCollum, OK 40: Dr, William W, Rucks, Pi S; Dr, J, R, McLaughlin, OK 43; and Dr, J. M. Thurringer. I Ac, one of the founders of our chapter. Social life assumed its usual place of importance in Phi Chis activities, and our calendar was quite adequately filled. The Founders ' Day banquet was held February 26, 1947, Dr. George L. Cross, President of the University of Oklahoma, spoke. The fall, winter, and spring dances were unques- tioned successes, and provided moments of rest from the rigors of medical education — one of the most im- portant functions of an organization such as ours. And so, as another fleeting year slips through our fingers, we pause to take inventory of ourselves and our fraternity. It seems that only yesterday we were freshman pledges, worried to death over our first an- atomy quiz, floundering helplessly, as it were. through our first semester. Now, suddenly, we find that once more, we must bid farewell to a group of departing seniors. We wish them the best of every- thing, and hope that the fraternal association which we have all enjoyed in the past, may continue, unin- terrupted, in the future, — C. Martin and C.

Page 207 PHI BETA PI The national medical fraternity of Phi Beta Pi was founded on March 10, 1891, at the Western Penn- sylvania Medical College, now the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, to provide an oppor- tunity for Medical practitioners, teachers of medicine, and medical students to meet together informally for the discussion and consideration of those practical problems of medicine which cannot be treated with frankness and freeness elsewhere. From these be- ginnings. Phi Beta Pi has grown rapidly to the pres- ent time when there are seventy-two chapters repre- sented in the leading medical institutions of the country. Early in the history of the University of Oklahoma School of Medicine, students felt the need of regular friendly discussions of important medical problems. On May 24, 1912, the Alpha Lambda chapter of Phi Beta Pi was established here for that purpose and for many years was the only fraternity existing at this school. Our fraternity has always had active alumni. Many of the pre-clinical and clinical men of the school are " Phi Betes. " Our new dean. Dr. Jacques Pierce Gray, followed a precedent established by Dr. Tom Lowry and Dr. Wann L ngston when he. too. a " Phi Bete " from the Alpha Omicron chapter at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, came to our school from the University of Virginia School of Medicine. Activities for the past year got off to a grand start with the election of officers who served for the first semester. Eugene Bond became president; Frank Gatchell, vice-president; Dayton Rose, secretary; Jed Goldberg, treasurer; and Bill Gyles (by unanimous vote), chaplain. Dr. Mark R. Everett, who has al- ways been active in many organizations throughout the state and has been extremely interested in " Phi Bete, " was selected as faculty advisor. Membership of our chapter at the beginning of the year numbered sixty-two upperclassmen. The ranks were swelled when we pledged forty of the incoming freshmen. Members and pledges were proud to learn of Phi Bete J. Raymond Hinshaw ' s (class of ' 46) selection as Rhodes Scholarship winner. The year ' s educational program consisted o f monthly meetings with various clinical men as guest speakers and the Seventh Annual LeRoy Long Mem- orial Lectureship. The social year began with the freshman rush party in the Civic Room of the Biltmore Hotel. Dr. Ernest Lachman. a favorite speaker at these rush parties, gave the freshmen an insight into the an- atomy department with his talk, " Anatomists I Have Known. " He was heckled as usual by Dr. Everett. The fall Formal on October 26. also in the Civic Room, was a huge success with many " Phi Betes " and Phi Chis present. The social highlight on our calendar was the annual Founders ' Day dinner- dance on March 22, at the Oklahoma City Golf and Country Club. The Sooner Orchestra furnished the music for a wonderful evening of dancing. The quality of freshmen pledged each year, and the interest in the Alpha Lambda Chapter of Phi Beta Pi by the alumni, assures us of continued suc- cess in the future, and the dream of a fraternity house is becoming more of a reality each day. — Robert A.

Student Pubhcations have assumed a position of major importance in the life of the Medical Student, who waits anxiously (?) each month for the Beat to be distributed. However, the aver- age student does not realize the hours of toil that are necessary to publish a reasonably good newspaper each month. Co-editors Keith Kelly and Joe Spann have succeeded in maintaining a high standard for the now well-established paper, without losing sight of the fundamental reasons for which it was first instituted. This year a new publication made its appearance on the scene — The Quarterly Bulletin was founded to foster student research and to provide a means of teaching the average student some of the finer points in preparing material for publication. The responsibility of publishing the Quarterly rests with four co-editors and a business manager — each co-editor is responsible for one issue. The publication is distributed free of charge to all students and copies are sent to alumnae, faculty, and other members of the State Medical Association. The content is purely scientific, and only undergraduate students of the University of Oklahoma School of Medicine may contribute.

THE 1947 SDDNER MEDIC This year ' s Sooner Medic is intended to represent a typical cross section of a year spent in the School of Medicine — from the student ' s standpoint. Having passed through the first two and part of the third year, we did not find it difficult to record our impressions of those turbulent times, both photographically and in the manuscript. However, we feel that perhaps we slighted the senior year. In our own defense, let it be said that we have never been seniors — and so far as we know, perhaps the seniors are too busy. We hope, and believe, that this year has seen the Sooner Medic leave the experimental stage and become an institution. Of course, it would have been impossible for us to undertake the task without the helpful suggestions of last year ' s staff, Mr. Loucks, Mr, McCoy, and Mr. Loy. Dr. John Barnard, faculty advisor to the student council, offered many helpful suggestions. The interest of Dean Gray and Dr. Shoemaker, and the support that they gave us was indispensable. We also wish to thank Mr. C. H. fBrite, Mr, W. P. Dickinson. Mrs. Funnell, Mr. Barnes, Bob Head, Keith Kelly, Joe Spann, Charles Martin. Lloyd Judd. Ted Wenger, Ralph Murphy, Knight Braly, Mr. Hiser, and the many others too numerous to mention who gave us their support and encouragement. — The Staff C, F.

Many students think that the main reason for an annual is its feature pictures — and, in all probability, they are right. We all like to look back, and remember — in a composite view — the joys and sorrows, great and trivial: the hours of work, and moments of relaxation and pleasure — especially the moments of pleasure. Time smoothes the wrinkles out of our memories, and eventually that which is behind us is covered with a definite — if, in places thin — rose colored hue.

As a fond recollection of things past, the seniors lined up on the grass — just in front of the " Keep Off ' signs — and had a last try at intra- mural sports — an activity that seemed to level off to bridge tournaments, ping pong games, and bull sessions this year, for some reason. We don ' t know whether that reason lies in the fact that the class of ' 47 has advanced another year — and thereby qualified for e.xemption under the old, but faithful " The Seniors Are Too Busy clause, or the fact that Page 214 Bcloir, left: The Bandit of Sherwood Forest strikes again.

The party season opened with a bang, as both fraternities rushed the newly matriculated freshmen. While the relative degree of success enjoyed by the individual organizations in this particular is a matter best left unmolested (?) it s a notable fact that the subsequent social season witnessed the temporary burial of the hatchet by both organi- zations — even if said graveyard WAS the opponent ' s back!!! Both fraternities lived up to standard in a party way, as " rival " brethren attended each other ' s functions. The Biltmore Hotel witnessed the happy hours of respite, and in case any of our readers still haven ' t found their cuff links, the place was the Ci ' i ' ic Room.

November rolled around, and the Student Council gave a stag party which both students and faculty attended in rare form. Some people wondered if Lockwood had planted Tom on the sidelines to assure a good response — others had been with Tom all evening. Dr. Hopps uttered words of wisdom concerning birds, mules, et al., while Dr. Hackler rallied to tell about meeting certain emer- gencies while duck hunting. Dr. Smith and Dr. Records were runners up, but the Public Health Department took home the Nil. The season was notable for cooperation between various organizations sponsoring entertainment. While some of the brethren may have gone away disapat — that is, disap- pointed — the great majority enjoyed safe conduct, as Medics one and all let down their bur haircuts, and had a swell time.

" When Fugate stepped out of the coffin, many people — especially the faculty — were of the opinion that he might just as well step right back in again. However, he didn ' t, and these few scenes are a small sample of the dramatic mayhem that resulted. Although the actual plot of this year ' s show has not, as yet, been determined, the general opinion is that Jaun- dice starred as Lassie ' s father-in-law — which explains the presence of that paper mache (with a Halpert over the " e ' ) fire plug that was on the stage. For the benefit of those who may not know, the " Gridiron " is presented each year by the Student Council, and is a burlesque — in the strict sense — of the faculty, by the students.

W f i the aid of capable advisors of the Uni- versity staff: the career conference, spring formal, pep rallies, and a host of other activities gave information and pleasure that will be carried by the students to the future. The memories of these pleasures are acknowledged today as one of the most essential aids to the encouragement and recognition of a higher standard of learning. Our future does not rest on activities, but they certainly have an honored position on any list of contri- butions to this state. :5i F E A T U R E S ■A V I 4 r i TP ' f . Ai , ' •f ( -I if% V «£ .

The unending hnes waiting for the advisor s approval, the time cards, or perhaps it was the line waiting for the Veterans ' Ad- ministration to come through and issue a few of the " chits ' for the books. Speaking of advisors, Pro- fessor Hoke seems to be helping Alpha Phi Margaret Mathis. while Gene Robertson — just one of the Sigma Chis — and Mary James of 640 Elm try to pick a few snap courses. Sig Ep Quinton Peters seems to be enjoying a bit of rela.xation around the bingo table in the Union. The sad faces seen in the lower left hand corner are just a few of the unfortunates who failed to have a friend in the art department to alter the time cards. Kappa ' s Sue Smith and a couple of her friends are discussing a few of the finer points of the Sooner. Leave it to J. Dedman to know v.hat and when to buy. It takes most stu- dents all the way to the " eight weeks " mark before they realize what this enrollment was all about and then it is too late. D. U. BUILDS After years of inability to obtain materials for construction, the University of Oklahoma has been given the go signal for the erection of two badly needed buildings. A new Press building and a Science Research building are well under way and are expected to be com- pleted some time in the near future. The Press building will be just south of the old Press building on the location of the overcrowded parking lot. The Science Research building will be in back of Robertson Hall. Construction jobs always seem to attract a big crowd and Jo Ann Smith. Mary Lou Sarber and Pat Whitehead are no exceptions as they watch Big Bertha work. Mary Clyde Baker, Adrianne Smith. and Rosie Robinson admire the work already done while Barbara Cofield. Elaine Taylor and Safronia Briscoe look at some other phases of construction. Dr. Frank Lloyd Wright and Dr. Kamphoefner are caught dis- cussing some of the famous architecture feats of Dr. Wright during his visit and lecture on the Oklahoma University campus during the past year. v. l w J " UNCLE HARRY " Many of us have wondered about these quiet and timid men — have they the power to commit murder? In " Uncle Harry " we have the answer. Uncle Harry portrayed by Lawrence Suffiil, plays, with that genuine touch of an artist, the part of a man so admired and liked that nothing connected with crime would even be mentioned near him. Lettie, his sister who takes the blame, is also extremely well acted by Dorothy Hill. This play is a flashback, starting with Uncle Harry in a tap room, telling a stranger the story of a perfect crime he committed; so perfect that even after admitting he had done it, he was still not believed. The play goes back three years, and takes you through the death of one sister who is unknowingly poisoned by the other. Lettie, having never lived peacefully with her sister Lucy, played by Betty Jo Gregory, was an easy subject to prove guilty. Consequently, she was executed. The psychological tension of the whole play was never so stirring as when Uncle Harry tries desperately to admit the crime, after not being able to stand himself for put- ting his sister into this trap. No one believes him, so he is left with his conscience to grin and bear the burden. KISS AND TELL Most of the girls kiss and don ' t tell, but the University will long remember this one who did in the Playhouse production, " Kiss and Tell " at Holmberg hall. Heading the cast was Suzanne Prentice, as Corliss Archer, who suc- ceeds in getting into trouble, spreading rumors, and causing a family feud all in three acts. Her best girl friend. Mildred Pringle. played by Dawnette Rush, was secretly married and through their efforts to keep it on the q.t. the plot was full of surprises. All ended well, however, when Mildred and Corliss were untangled from family troubles. The other members of the cast included: Lawrence Swanson, as Mr. Willard: Leona Badgett, as Louise; Kuyk Logan, as Raymond Pringle; George Moorman, as Dexter Franklin; Delores Evans, as Janet Archer; Lawrence Suffill, as Harry Archer; Mack Seism, as Private Earhart; Bill Weaver, as Lt. Lenny Archer; Elli Mayer, as Mary Franklin; Charles Stepp, as Bill Franklin; Barbara Robertson, as Dorothy Pringle; Guss Babb. as Uncle George; and Fred Gill, as Robert Pringle. ••• ,-«»v» (•«3» MU DAD ' S DAY Never before has so much enthusiasm and warmth been shown on this campus. The Dads were herel And that meant no reaching in the back pocket for at least one weekend. Above we have a gay pair of sisters, Joan and Rosene, giving their Dad, Mr. Looney, a happy welco me and undoubtedly recaptivating his stories of college days. Mr. Looney was also elected president of the Dads ' Association on this same day. How can one man get all the luck. What a profitable weekend tells Ted the next day. after making his dad. Mr. Holcombe, dig. Something must be wrong in this lower left picture — it seems John Rector has a new aspect towards Dads ' Day as he is seen leav- ing with Marilyn and her Dad. Mr. Cook. (Finances are not all that Dad can decide.) The streets of Norman were also crowded with activities, bands from different parts of the state came out to greet the Dads. After all was said and done this truly proved to be one of the most honored traditions of the campus. ARDUNE THE CAMPUS IMA Girl of the Year, Danny Miller, poses with a big smile while the IMA President beams his approval of the election . . . The Beer Bowl classic was one of the hardest ball games of the year. With an ante of 50,000 bottle caps, the Betas realized the effect of a win on new rushees and the adverse publicity the winner might get, so with due consideration they fought the KA ' s to a scoreless game. Jeanne Vinson, Theta, poses with Ruf-Nek President Lewis Thompson after her corona- tion as their queen . . . The basketball season that carried OU to second place in the nation, was hardly begun when this picture of interested spectators was taken. Tom Ingram and several of his cronies took time out from the game to pose for the camera . . . The Activity Festival brought to light the talents of the cam- pus organizations. Nan Dale. Joan Yarmuk and Tony Hillerman check on a few photographic supplies of Kappa Alpha Mu while Bob Rose watches them. HDMECDMING The first homecoming celebration since the end of the war brought home the grads of yesterday, who crowded the campus to see their old friends. The various houses of the campus outdid themselves, and a map of terri- torial Oklahoma and a tribe of howling Indians took first places in the UAB house decorating contest. The Phi Gams, with an Indian tepee, complete with the In- dians doing a war dance around the campfire, por- trayed life in earliest Oklahoma. They even dressed up the front yard with a tableau from covered wagon days through the age of automobiles. The Sigma Nu float in the homecoming parade could hardly be classed as a float ... it was more a parade within a parade as bright, shiny surries, bicycles, mob cars and limou- sines wheeled by to give the visitors memories of Okla- homa. A parade of progress, and the Sigma Nu ' s progressed to take the first prize. The Alpha Gams ended up on a Pacific isle and brought out a local na- HOMECOMING five to welcome the Missouri Tigers to a stewing in the tribal pot. The DG ' s spent many an hour building and repairing their statehood sign . . . Time well spent, for they won first place in the house decorations. The ATO signs and decorations which featured " Okla- homa, " starring Jim Tatum ' s boys, was very realistic of the " Badman ' s Territory " . . . they even had the bat- tered bodies in the yard. Naturally, they were Mis- souri Tigers! The Tri Delts roped the Tigers on the DDD field and had them well in hand by the time the alums hit the campus. The Alpha Xi ' s went in for homecoming in a big way. " Polish em off " on well manicured hands was the theme as giant players fought the game. Dick Dale, camera fiend deluxe, portrayed a perfect " Watch the birdie! " photographer in the pa- rade. The float was KAM ' s, the idea — original. After looking at the decorations and watching the parade, the grads witnessed the downfall of the Missouri Tigers. -■■ ' .J||||.,,; AUTUMN FROLICS The coming of autumn brought Halloween and plenty of parties. The Alpha Phis hit on the idea of a Sadie Hawkins party and ended up in Dogpatch. Anna Mary Ogle. Dawnette Rush. Jeanne Flickinger and Mary Lou Rowland highlight the events of the party by their songs . . . Alpha Delta Pi Letitia Ambrose and Pifi Marianne Collins are caught in a rather scenic pose on the campus . . . Speaking of Hallow- een, the ATO ' s threw a gay party and entertained the Kappas. Seen hiding behind the candles and Jack-O-Lantern are Frances Pemberton and Marianna Marshall . . . Larry Stephenson and Bill Moreland edit a few more news items during the activity festival while Janie Bel! hawks a few papers and yells the headlines, " Hurst Mabe OU Prexy! " . . . Over Tri Delt way, the pledges threw the members a most mem- orable party and sent them on a scavenger hunt. Some excitement was created when a few of the girls visited a local public office for some information. In costumes on the DDD front porch, we found Shirley Grinnell. Kathryn Fisher. Mary Faye Howard. Jane Ellen Mayes. Norma Brown. LaVita Wrinkle, Mary Alice Chisholm and Margaret Humphreys. S Nobody can say that campus life has entirely forgotten the old rah rah spirit. With football in the air, these are just a few of the typical scenes. The crowning of the Ruf-Nek Queen and the thirty-minute kiss Thomp- son forced on himself along with Coach Jim Tatum ' s words to the students during the Army game Pep Rally were examples of some of this rah rah. Coach Bud Wil- kinson, standing beneath " Beat Army, " looks over the attendants at the rally while Harold SchafFer shouts his views on the game. Rosemary Jones, Chi Omega, poses for the camera after her coronation as band queen. It was a wise choice on the part of the band. Irene Bond. Kappa, watches the Beer Bowl and manages to hold down Wooglin, Betas ' mascot, while serving as their best coach, supporter, and water boy. The SAE game with the Phi Gams was a hard-fought battle, the SAE ' s winning the first game of what may become a tradi- tional series. :. DANCES were the social life of the campus again this year with the weekends filled with everything from the Dixie Ball to the Hollywood Costume Ball . . . Mary Lou Midkiff and Dick Dannenberg have a gay time at the Kappa Valentine Dance . . . Jennie Berry and Jack Croom break away from the books to step to the music at the Logan Valen- tine Dance . . . Wonder how it happened that all the Acacia big dogs were together for this shot? Anyway, Odell Stone and Rex Kenyon toss away their cares for the evening . . . It ' s the Dixie Ball and a little transported SOUTH (with all its trimmings, except maybe a julep or two ) goes a long way as Jerry Keen and U.A.B. ' s Mary Lou Stubbeman exchange a few words with Dusty Biddle and Doris Blakely . . . The scenery may be South but we were unable to get a clear picture of the K.A. ' s idea of real Southern decorations . . . not with censorship and prohibition . . . The Sigma Chi Holly- wood Costume Ball found Jean and Bill Black posing for a lost and bewildered Sooner staff member and photographer . . . we missed Jerry Losee as the daring " one-eyed ' pirate. The Snow Ball was the outstanding event out Theta way . Odd how affectionate Ken Spence can get toward a snowman under certain conditions . . . Jeanne Vinson. Ruf- Nek Girl, and Hunter McMurray, Belle of the Engine School, give Warner Lewis and John Hunt a treat . . . The Pifi ' s started the season off with their Circus Dance complete with merry-go-round and fiendish colored animals. Janie Balmer and Linda Loftin are all smiles for Delt Jay Beck and KA Art TafFell . . . Merle Dinkins, Beta ' s claim to fame, rests on the haywagon with an armful of pulchritude, namely Jeanette Pittman. We can ' t figure out what John Rector, lalias Chas. Bocheck. is trying to do with a mouthful of straw while Shirley Hilmer is so close by . . . Bob McGregor gives a mighty tug as he helps prize-winner Virginia Dodson aboard the hayrack for the Barn Dance — where ' s the pig? The PiKA dance, and it ' s Norma Brown and Barbara Keys who are the center of attraction while Louis Bond and " Bucky " Walters try to make the hit . . . All in all the dance season was the best we ' ve seen in a long time! CHRISTMAS Sheldon Brink and Grant Keener seem to have done all right with Santa Claus Pat Warren. What we want to know is how long Santa has been smoking a pipe and how did they ever get you behind that beard. Pat The ATO ' s had a nice Christmas celebration and with a little encouragement from the photographer and Santa. Marty Dole managed to hoist a low skirt to climb through the snow drifts. It looks like a long, hard winter if the paper keeps falling in the ATO house. Doug Sewell has caught a very willing victim under the mistletoe at the Lambda Chi Alpha Christmas Dance and both seem to be smiling in pleased anticipation. Janie Bell beams wide for the camera while Jim Gill beams at her. Bob Allen is too busy with the Beta Christmas turkey to even be conscious of our camera man. The Delta Chis and their dates e.xhibit Christmas gifts while Tri Delt Norma Brown exhibits her lovely gift. With one eye on the calendar, and another on the billfold, eds and co-eds alike made ready for Christmas by way of the big pre-vacation whirl ... At home for once, the Sigma Chi party boys are eagerly peering out the window for Santa and wondering how he will ever manage to fill so many stockings . . . Even in desperation the Sig Alphs manage to celebrate in some manner . . . Nightie night! Franklin house, wrapped in tinsel and holly, entertained the girls with a formal during the pre-holiday celebration that will long be remembered . . . No. it isn ' t Sun Valley, just the Chi Omega Ski Lodge . . . Strat Tolson is busily spinning yarns to Band Queen Rosemary Jones about his skill on the hickories ... Pi Phi Annie Jarret looks mighty pleased when the mirror reveals Santa ' s substitute. Bob Huckins. All in all it was a big time that the campus enjoyed prior to the vacation, with the students firmly resolving to hit the books while they were home. WINTER WONDERLAND Winter hit the campus with all of its coldness, but the snow that it brought was welcomed by students as they engaged in snow ball fights and the construction of a few snow men. A few of the conservative houses will never forget to either leave a furnace burning or drain the water system. Dot Nance and Tony Hillerman brave the chill as they sit and talk over a few subjects. Mary Wingate. Faun Suber and a couple of Delts break up a snow ball fight. Bobbie Adrian. Cecile El- kins with Mary Wingate and Faun Suber have started another fight. Mrs. Gene Freeman and Mrs. Kathryn Nunnally take time out to help Bill Smith build his snow man. The ice seems to be pretty slick: any- way, Dorothy Nance, Margaret Wahlgren and Ouida Spaulding are having quite a bit of trouble keeping their footing. The only thing bad about the winter was that we didn ' t have enough and what we did have was just a little too irregular in its appearance. We were never completely acclimated. Si fot-v- HERE AND THERE It must be rough losing in football by 61 points and then having to clean the campus for your rivals . . . the Aggies seem to have lost again in another little competitive escapade with the local campus cops as they bend their knees to remove a bit of paint . . .

Betty Hicks spent a few days giving a bit of advice to the local golfers . . . HERE ... I guess we ' ll have a host of boys out for football next year when the rest of the boys realize how the team fared on its many flights to out-of-state games — it ' s a safe bet to say the boys were sorry when they landed . . . The Engineers seem to be a very fortunate lot as Donna Kelly and Janice LeVick make ready backstage for the big show of the season . . , Somebody told us that all the Engine School offered was the knowledge of how to run the machines. - " --z - I IHPHHI ■pppii j r rf..;i ■. v«y Bi nMjj tfi -.. • ■ . .

Harral was appointed director of the School of Journalism in September. 1945. and is now serving in that capacity. A native of Durant. Oklahoma, he received his B. A. degree from Southeastern State college where he was a member of Phi Beta Kappa; an M. A. degree from the University, and has done graduate work at the University of Iowa and Colum- bia University. He has been director of press rela- tions at the University since 1937. Harral is known throughout the nation as an ex- pert in public relations and is the author of three books on public relations. In addition, he has written more than 50 magazine articles on publicity, public relations and allied subjects. Robert V. Peterson, former supervisor of student publications and visiting professor of journalism, served the first semester of the year as an ex-officio member of the Publications Board. He received a bachelor of science degree in tech- nical journalism from Iowa State college at Ames, Iowa, and holds a master of science degree in his- tory from Oklahoma Agricultural and Mechanical college at Stillwater. Formerly connected with the Associated Press in Kansas City, Peterson has worked on Des Moines PUBLICATIONS BOARD and Wichita newspapers and has served on the A. and M. faculty. Prior to his appointment to the fac- ulty in 1944, he was publisher of VV e« ' oA:a Times- Democrat for 14 years. Having served as president of the Oklahoma Press Association in 1943-1944, Peterson is well known throughout the state. He recently resigned his posi- tion at the University to join the Norman Transcript as associate publisher. He is succeeded by C. Joe Holland. C. Joe Holland, instructor in journalism and super- visor of student publications, is an ex-officio member of the Publications Board. Holland received a bachelor of arts degree in journalism from the University of Oklahoma in 1937. He has been employed as a sports editor and re- porter on the Blackwell Journal-Tribune and has engaged in free-lance writing. Before he entered the army in April, 1943, Hol- land served as assistant in press relations at the Uni- versity. He served as a lieutenant in the air force and returned to the University Press Relations staff in September. 1946. John H. Casey, professor of journalism, serves as secretary-treasurer of the Publications Board and has charge of advertising and newspaper business management curricula. Known all over the United States as the " Country Newspaper Specialist, " Casey is recognized as one of the outstanding authorities on the subject. He received his Bachelor of Journalism degree from the University of Missouri in 1920 and a Master of Arts in journalism degree from Stanford University in 1930. Until he accepted the position on the Univer- sity of Oklahoma faculty, he was a member of the journalism faculty of the University of Missouri. Selected by the war department as one of the F . John H. Casey Robert V. Peterson C. Joe Holland Page 270 Left to riLjht: Dean D. B. R. Johnson, Jules E. Thompson. Mary Lou Royer. Stewart Harral. Sue Smith. Robert V. Peterson. John H. Casey, and D. Jo Ferguson. twelve journalism teachers in the nation to serve on the faculty of G. I. universities in Europe, he spent the last six months of 1945 teaching advertising at Shrivenham, England. During his journalism career, Casey has been farm editor of the Nashville Tennessean, statehouse re- porter for the Des Moines Register, advertising man- ager for the Japan Advertiser in Tokyo and an asso- ciate editor of the Trans-Pacific magazine. D. B. R. Johnson, dean of the School of Pharmacy, is the only faculty member of the board who does not serve continuously. His position is filled di- rectly by the president of the University. Dean Johnson is on the legislative and professional relations committee of the Oklahoma Pharmaceutical Association, is a member of Rho Chi, Kappa Psi, Kappa Delta Pi and the U. S. Pharmacopoeia revi- sion committee. He was president of the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy in 1926, and has served as vice president of the American Phar- maceutical Association. One of the first asked to serve as a faculty mem- ber on the Publications Board, Dean Johnson has been off the board for only two years since its found- ing in 1915, and is today still one of its most ardent members. The chief duty of the Publications Board is to supervise the business affairs of The Oklahoma Daily, campus newspaper: The Covered Wagon, student humor magazine: and the Sooner, University annual. The other important function of this body is the selection of the editors for these student publi- cations. The selection of editors is made from filings turned in by students at the beginning of each new semester. The requirements for these positions are experience, scholastic standing, and at least one sem- ester ' s experience on the publication for which they seek the editorship. Besides supervising the business affairs of the three student publications, and choosing the editors for these publications, the Publications Board also has the power to make all their contracts. In this manner the best possible bids are obtained for each publication. This has been a great factor in increas- ing the standards of all the student publications. In its present form the Publications Board consists of four student members and four faculty members. Stewart Harral, director of the School of Journalism, served as chairman; John H. Casey, professor of journalism, secretary-treasurer: and D. B. R. John- son, dean of the School of Pharmacy, faculty mem- ber. C. Joe Holland replaced Robert V. Peterson as an ex-oflicio member at mid-term. The student members usually represent a student publication on which they have worked. This year, D, Joe Fergu- son represented The Oklahoma Daily, Mary Lou Royer represented The Covered Wagon. Grant Keener replaced Jules Thompson as the Sooner Yearbook representative at mid-term, and Sue Smith served as member-at-large. Page 271 1947 SOONER YEARBOOK Everett E. Berry, Editor For the first time in history, the Sooner turned into Big Business and had to worry about strikes in the Engraving and Lumber industries. With a paper shortage threatened because of lumber strikes, the problems were extended beyond the University lim- its. It was with a sigh of relief that we watched this edition roll from the presses. It has been a difficult, but pleasant task, and not one of us regrets the many hours of lost sleep as we tried to meet the deadlines. The hours of constant screaming at the photogra- Mary Lou Hedley Robert Scott phers as the closing time drew near was matched only by the desperate cry for RAZZ, more RAZZ — just anything. Events of the student body. 10.000 strong, contrib- uted to the colorful panorama of activities upon the pages of the Sooner. Within Greek letter houses, independent dormitories, classrooms, fieldhouse, and on the stadium gridiron the staff compiled the events of collegiate activity at the University of Oklahoma. The informality and traditional spirit of campus life is reflected in the pictures of the social and other activities. A change from the traditional " Who ' s Who " section has been made to one of " Campus Personalities, " so the credit can be given to those students whose time is limited to a small number of activities, and the regular " Who ' s Who " has been moved throughout the book in the colored pictures so that they may carry the theme and coordinate the thought through the divisions of the book. Organizing a staff from a few of the campus pre- war students, the Yearbook finally managed to find a hard-working, conscientious group of both pre-war and post-war new students. Bob Hurst, feature editor, managed to always be around at the itme the photographer was headed toward the sororities or a girls ' dorm. Hurst ful- filled his ambitions after taking the feature shots of the Pifis. The DCs had their effect on Bob and he had to forget the Sooner as his time was fully taken by Betty Litchtenheld of O. C. Bob Scott, military editor, not to be outdone by Hurst, flatly refused to allow the appearance of the photographer without his assistance at the Engineers ' Show and ended up with the picture of the year.

Mary Allen Hess and Mary McKinney managed to get a lot of people a little publicity and more slams; however, the time of both became highly valuable- when Mai discovered basketball ' s Keith Miller and Mary cast her eyes toward Bocheck. Grace Ward had a hard struggle between life at the Alpha Chi Omega house and the insane existence in the Yearbook Office. Gene Gregston came through with a fine writeup of the sports section. After constantly stalling and asking for postponement of the deadline for the basketball copy, his explanation was. " Those boys are bound to win the Regional this year. " Mary Lou Hedley and Janie Bell took charge of the Razz section and managed to pick up a few threats of law suits by some innocent victims of their merciless hands. After swiping a few of the editor ' s collection of pictures, Janie managed to get the nega- tive destroyed on one of the best pictures taken by Floyd Bright. Most conscientious of the entire staff was Steve Taylor, but he managed to be in trouble constantly with the members of Sigma Chi because of his con- tributions to the Razz section. Grant Keener lost considerable sleep trying to handle the organizations section and Jane McFarland at the same time, but ended up doing a fine job with the organizations. We have not been able to get a comment from either Jane or Grant on the other. Polly Johnson. Dorothy Losee, and Billie Heap came through with the difficult details of the book and patiently watched us scream over the panels and copy. Master of advice and controller of the pesos, Cecil Brite kept the book out of the red at a time when cost had climbed out of proportion to the income. To Mr. R. C, Walker of the Southwestern Engrav- ing Company and Mr. R. J. Collins of the Economy Advertising Company we owe many thanks, for without their cooperation and assistance the book could never have met its deadline. John Rector, of the advertising department, did a fine job in the preparation of the advertising layout and aided considerably in the composition of the Razz section. To John Hunt and Bob Pullen we owe thanks for their assistance during our rush for the deadlines. Doug Sewell did a splendid job on the Navy section. This book could not have been printed without the sharp eye and patience of the photographers. Floyd Bright, Herb Poison, Larry Groves and Bob Huckins. It IS the editor ' s wish that all those responsible for this book could be thanked personally. Page 273 Seated, left to right: Truman Richardson, Harry CuKer, John R.

THE DKLAHDMA DAILY The staff of the Oklahoma Daily for the year 1946-19 ' 17 was unquestionably the oldest staff by way of age average of any since the first Daily was published in 1916. This fact is easily explained by the influx of vet- erans, most of whom had three or four years of serv- ice under their journalistic belts. Older and more convinced than ever of the prac- tical advantages to be gained by work on the Daily, Peg Marchant, Editor these veterans returned from bases and beachheads all over the world ready to embark on " Operations Newspaper Business. " Military jargon, slang, humor and perspective found its way into the copy turned out by the Daily s newly demobilized staff. Diminutive Peg Marchant, 98-pound editor for the first semester, found the job of handling the for- mer GI ' s quite a problem, but not an insurmountable one, and succeeded in gaining the admiration of the big boys by her initiative and hard work. " I just don ' t know what ' s going to happen to the women ' s news, " Peg prophetically lamented at the end of her hitch as editor, " when all these veterans get in and crowd the coeds completely off the Daily. " Peg ' s fears were ameliorated, however, when she learned that the second semester editor and manag- ing editor, Charles Ward and Harry Culver, were married men, as were staff members Gene Gregston, Ross Strader, Louis Cozby, Jake Hill, Jack Wet- tengel and Leon Bert, This factor alone served to keep women in the news. The Daily immediately reflected a veteran ' s interests, however, in that it gave emphasis to sports, veteran affairs, queen races, world news, and general " gripe letters " to the editor.

The Daily, though admittedly a " Student news- paper serving the University of Oklahoma, " has an atmosphere of a big town daily paper, even down to the smoke-filled editorial office. After one semester in the Daily office, even the most deep-rooted fresh air fiend screams when a novice opens a window. Students working on the Daily perform all the jobs necessary to put out a city daily. They do cub reporting of routine runs around the campus and ad- vanced reporting on " hot " news; they draw up ads and sell them to local and national businessmen; they edit copy, rewrite stories, read proof, write head- lines, and take AP copy over the Daily ' s wire serv- ice; they write sports, society, features and editorials. The Daily serves as a hypodermic needle to Oil ' s potential journalists in that it draws blood from the quill-pushers and injects a load of printer ' s ink into their galleys (arteries) to see if the mixture gears the J-student higher or saps his enthusiasm for the news- paper business. The Daily staff gets an early lesson in the ugly realization that all is not by-lines and complimentary passes with newspapermen and women. Constant (and sometimes quite legitimate) gripes from students, faculty members, organizations, townspeople, advertisers and fellow journalists keep the Daily ' s staff, from editor to cub, alert to public opinion. Former GI ' s who developed the hobby of photog- raphy during the war found genuine pleasure in tak- ing Professor Truman Pouncey ' s basic and advanced photography courses. And as a result of this spiral- ing interest in camera technique, the Daily was able to offer its readers fresh action shots of campus doings. The Daily has served, and continues to serve, as a veritable " breeding grounds for top journalists.

THE COVERED WAGON Jane Anne Cockrell, editor-in-chief of the Cov- ered Wagon, an asset to an otherwise confused staff, saw to it that all the deadlines were met, reluctantly, but still met. It was a banner semester that we spent writing things that no one would read or admit reading. Dutifully protecting the morals of the student body and at the same time writing things that would interest them was no easy task. In an effort to promote the general welfare and Jank An ' ne Cockrell A-. 0K L " , r I 1 •: " r J HIL _«»- K secretly hopeful that we might win the ticket our- selves, we appropriated money for a free ticket to the West Point football opener with Army. We were very popular that week with Miss June Riggs. who won the trip. Goonwald Platz summed up the campus situation well in the October issue. " We veterans fought a war for freedom. " he wrote, " and now we find the south oval covered with hard gravel and still pa- trolled by campus cops. " Warren Papin (we ' d never let it get out that Papin is only Goonwald Platz ' pen name) and Tom Davis were feature writers extraordinary. Bob Huckins and Mary Lou Royer came to the rescue. When things looked darkest, they ' d appre- ciate what the staff was doing and do what was needed to keep the wheels rolling. Fred Huston, reactionary, fascist, sworn enemy of veterans ' organizations and all who style themselves liberals, found a reading public in Maurice Ogden. Ogden claimed he wanted to see how the other half lived. Huston, ever happy, gave up strong drink and be- gan to practice Yogi so that he could be an e.xample to his fellows. Cliff Caldwell, John Rector. Ruth Howell and Charles McKeen sold ads and saw to it that the coffers were always full. Page 276 Left to right: Wanda Leslie, John Rector, Mrs. Clifford Doty. The second semester started and the Wagon moved right along. Lewis E. Thompson, former fightin ' man from Shawnee, cHmbed into the editor ' s saddle, with associates Ed Makinson and Charlie Rothfus attending to the finer details. Tony Hiller- man, T. D, Fisher, Mary McKinney, Elwood Hall and Roland Champion were editorial assistants and feature writers; Larry Grove continued on as photo- graphic editor, with Corv- ' in Smith, Dick Dale, Shel- don Brink and Jay Westervelt covering the campus with cameras. Rick Jay, Kelsie Miller, Jim Phelps and Dick Robinson wrote features. Darrel White- hurst, Barron Wood, John Freeze and Bill Fitzgerald did art work and cartoons, while Juhree Davenport and Wanda Leslie were added to the advertising staff. We admitted that the magazine was getting better; we gained confidence in ourselves and pointed to the increased number of magazines the staff was buying to prove it. The shutter sleuth, with the intrepid Inspector Curly Morris, gained acclaim throughout the nation; by close collaboration with our script writers we shot scenes in some of the finest sorority shower rooms on campus. Dick McDufF and Bob Rowlett flew to the Mardi Gras as correspondents from the Wagon and they told us all of " Stormy " in the March issue. All was not play with Thompson. Hard at work during the warm spring days, Thompson slaved over his desk sorting through the stacks of cheesecake pictures, interviewing lovely coeds. Ever persistent in his demands that quality should be the Covered Wagon ' s watchword, he seemed to do everything well. We stirred campus interest in the ever-popular questions of " What do you like about college men? " and " What do you like on in your date? " Mary Al- len Hess, vivacious Kappa, replied that men were so interested in what you were wearing — if it hap- pened to be strapless . . . " The one thing I insist on, " said Hugh Ben LaRue, " is that they be over 12. " This is just a cross section of some of the deep think- ing we aroused. Tony Hillerman found a following in his " Fifth Wheel " feature every month. Hillerman advised " Act ye lowly before him who is called ' doctor. ' For he would fain be Phi Beta Kappa but he hath not the qualifications. " Lewis Thompson, Editor Page 277 JDURNALISM PRESS, INC. Journalism Press, Inc., was established June 1, 1930. by an act of the Publications Board. The board recognized the need for an organization to as- sume responsibilities and assure the maintenance of the mechanical needs of the Oklahoma Daily, the Coi-ered Wagon, the Sooner Yearbook and the Student Directory. It was for these reasons that the charter for the corporation was drawn. Since the time of incorporation, the organization has success- fully and efficiently carried out its duties of fulfilling these needs and has risen to a high degree of pro- ficiency in its work. Mr. Cecil H. Brite has filled the position of gen- eral manager of all student publications since 1930 when he was graduated from the University with a degree in law after completing the requirements for a degree in the school of business administration with a major in accounting. With the founding of the Journalism Press, Inc., he became the supervisor of most of its administrative v ork. All student ad- vertising salesmen are under his direct management and come to him for guidance. It has been through his untiring efforts that the high standards of the student publications have been obtained and upheld. Known by those who work for him as the " Chief, " he controls the wild impulses of the various editors and with a great deal of patience e.xplains that some good ideas are impractical because of the finances. It is with great respect that the losers retire from these discussions concerning the policies of the publications. Not one to limit his activities with problems of the press, the " Chief " still finds time to be active in many outside activities. A member of the Acacia fraternity, he has served as national secretary since 1942 and has been very active in their fraternity work. He also serves as treasurer of the First Pres- byterian Church of Norman, is a member of the University Faculty Club, a member of the Kiwanis Club, and an active worker in the Chamber of Com- merce. He has devoted a great amount of time and effort in his work with the Boy Scouts for a number of years. Mr. W. C. Vanderwerth has served as the Me- chanical Superintendent for Journalism Press, Inc., since August of 1945. Despite shortage of man- power and lack of materials, he has managed to maintain the high standard of workmanship on the Oklahoma Daily for which all the student publica- tions have become noted. During the past two years Mr. Vanderwerth has expertly carried on the print- ing of the Daily, and it is under his directions that the " back shop force " turns in accurate work on time as it strives for perfection. Mr. Vanderwerth came to the University from Bryan, Texas, where he was noted for having been the supervisor of the daily newspaper. The Bryan Eagle, since 1921. Besides his work on the Bryan Eagle, he also has to his credit work on several other newspapers. He served as mechanical supervisor on all of these papers. Since his arrival, Mr. Vanderwerth has been faced with the problem of increased circulation brought about by the influx of post-war students which brought the University enrollment to an all time high. The circulation based primarily on the number of students, now compares favorably or above the aver- age circulation of daily newspapers in the state of Mr. Cecil H. Britr, General Manager of Student Publications W. C. VANnF.RWKRTH, Superintendent of Shop Page 278 Lelt to right: James McNeely, John H. Casey. Savoie Lottinville, Pat Bynum, Stewart Harral, T. M. Beaird, Jules Thompson. Oklahoma. This increased volume of printing has been made possible by the superior student help in the shop force. With the increase in circulation has come an increase in advertising and the ability and cooperation of the advertising managers has re- lieved Mr. Vanderwerth of many worries. The Journalism Press, Inc., is one of the few self- supporting units on the University of Oklahoma campus. The press has reached this enviable state because all of the equipment in the department is owned by them. All expenses are made by the stu- dent publications and the state is asked for no con- tributions to assist in the maintenance or upkeep of the equipment. This equipment, valued at more than $30,000. has been purchased from the earnings of the student publications. At present, it consists of a Webb duple.x press and three linotypes. The income from the advertising and receipts from the circulation of the Oklahoma Daily, Covered Wagon, and Student Directory pay not only the mechanical costs, but also the salary of the mechanical super- visor. The organization is composed of seven members who work as an interlocking directorate with the Publications Board; therefore, it assumes the man- agement of all operations of the mechanical depart- ment of student publications. Of these seven mem- bers, four are faculty members and three are repre- sentative student members. The faculty members are selected because of their knowledge and experi- ence along the lines of publications. The student members represent the interest of the student body and are selected automatically because of the posi- tions they hold in other campus activities and organ- izations. This year the four faculty members were Stewart Harral, director of the School of Journalism; John H. Casey, professor of journalism; T. M. Beaird, executive secretary of the University of Oklahoma Alumni Association and manager of the Oklahoma Memorial Union; and Savoie Lottinville, a former Rhodes scholar and now director of the University Press. The student membership of the Journalism Press, Inc., is filled by the president of the Associated Women Students, one student member of the Pub- lications Board and the president of the Student Sen- ate. The representatives on the board for this year were Pat Bynum, representing the Associated Women Students; Jules Thompson, representing the Publications Board; and James McNeely, represent- ing the Student Senate. The officers of Journalism Press, Inc.. for this year were Mr. Stewart Harral, who served as presi- dent; Mr. Savoie Lottinville, vice president; and Pro- fessor John H. Casey continued in the capacity of secretary-treasurer. Much credit should be given to the active work that these members have carried on for the best interests of the press and the University. Page 273 SDDNER SHAMROCK Betty Jo Kerr, Editor For twenty-nine years the scope of journalism of the Engineering College was limited to one annual special edition for the Oklahoma Daily. This extra was printed on green paper and appeared during the St. Pat ' s celebration each March. In that month of 1941 the College of Engineering felt that this " Green Sheet, " as it was called, should be aug- mented in the publishing of an Engineering Maga- zine. With great enthusiasm a group of students or- ganized, and launched a survey of other engineering magazines in the country. The ideas gained from this survey, together with a host of new ones, were put together in a cover bearing in bold green letters the name of the official organ of the College of En- gineering of the University of Oklahoma, 5ooner Shamrock. Back in 1941 when that group of far-sighted, en- thusiastic engineers first conceived the idea and were giving birth to the Shamrock, they were out free- lancing it. The first twenty-four page issue was backed by the Engineers Club, but since then the Shamrock has been independent. In the last six years the Magazine has achieved its rightful place among Engineering publications and today is ranked as one of the outstanding College Engineering Mag- azines in the country. It is a credit to the Engineers that they had the confidence and perseverance to embark on such a venture in that time of war, and equal credit should go to the hardworking boys and girls who have man- aged through difficult days to keep alive this " Voice " of the Engineers while magazines of other engineer- ing colleges became war casualties. Before Pearl Harbor, over forty such magazines were printed in the nation, but today well over half of that number have suspended operations. The Engine School owes in no small part the suc- cess of almost all such ventures to the loyal support and intelligent advice of its faculty members. This was true of the Shamrock. Without the help of Sam Holland, the first days of the magazine would have been much tougher. Mr. Holland stayed with the boys until the fall of 1941, when additional teaching duties forced him to cede the advisorship to another equally popular young professor. Vester E. Wil- loughby. Since that time, " Prof, ' as his students call him, has been the pillar to lean on in trying times. The sole purpose of the Shamrock has been for the advancement of Engineering, with special em- phasis upon this school, the College of Engineering of the University of Oklahoma. The magazine is not a technical journal, but rather deals with sub- jects in the engineering field in a general sense, com- prehensible to all members of our profession. In addition to regular articles pertaining to engi- neering, the Shamrock features articles to aid the veterans in their transition back into their engineer- ing studies. This section is known as " Know Your V. E. WlLI.OUGHBV Faculty Ad isor Page 280 Seated: Askew, Kerr. Standing: Cole, Melton, Stark, Heid, Steele, Everett. Engineering Schools, " in which any changes that have been made in the last few years are covered, the scope of work now covered in the courses, and a few choice words on the faculty members in the department. The tribute to the outstanding seniors, the " Men of Might, " is still one of the features in which the success a man has obtained in the Engine School is recognized. The " Little Reporter " is a column for the purpose of keeping the Engineers posted on " goings on around the Engine School. " For a foreigner in the language of Engineering one article can still be read and appreciated, that one being universal — the cat-like " Exhaust " joke section. " Exhaust " because it ' s a lot of air and plenty hot; " cat-like " because it can ' t be killed. About two years ago a plan was launched to de- sign a key for the members of the Shamrock staff. The key which is illustrated on the contents page of our magazine was thought to be a little limited in its representation. There is a symbol for Electrical En- gineers, Civil Engineers, and Mechanical Engineers and these are not all the fields of engineering. It was thought that a general design would be better. Miss Betty Jo Kerr designed the key which was very well accepted by all. The key consists of an open book with cross quills in the background, a slide rule across the top, and a shamrock at the bottom. The key is finished in gold and black. The spirit of the entire Engine School is behind the magazine and we wish to thank everyone who has contributed his support. We also wish to thank the members of the staff who have given their time so graciously to the publication of our magazine. Guy Steele, Business Manager Page 281 SDDNER MAGAZINE Ti ' .n Bf.aird Executive Secretary Alumni Association For the fifth time in the past 1 1 years, Sooner Magazine, official pubfication of the University of Oklahoma Alumni Association, has been awarded na- tional recognition by the American Alumni Council. In 1946, Sooner Magazine won merit awards in two fields. The first was for its coverage of college athletics with special attention to handling feature stories and art work on a basis of reader interest. The second award named Sooner Magazine for its " consistently interesting and outstanding pictures portraying student life and stimulating alumni inter- est. " Much of the credit for Sooner Magazine ' s success goes to Ted Beaird, ' 21 B. A., executive secretary manager of the University Alumni Asociation and author of " Riding the Sooner Range, ' a feature column of the magazine. Known as the " Range Rider " to thousands of OU alumni, Beaird ' s range is anywhere from Boise City to Broken Bow and from New York to New Zealand — or wherever dwell any of the 75,000 University of Oklahoma alumni. It ' s one man ' s duty to keep up with them and Beaird, who holds undisputed claim to knowing more Sooners than any other person, covers his " Range " well. Keeping up with the OU grads since the class of ' 96 is no small task, but each year Beaird meets more than 10,000 former Sooner students. To do this, he travels an average of 10,000 miles per year. Be- tween 1923 and 1934, he averaged over 40.000 miles per year traveling in the interests of the Alumni Association. The main purpose of the Alumni Association is to unite alumni effort in building a greater University of Oklahoma. As the publication of the Alumni As- sociation, Sooner Magazine has three broad jobs to accomplish in helping organized alumni to achieve this end. Keeping alumni informed of the latest de- velopments on the OU campus is one purpose of Sooner Magazine. Another is to present news of alumni activities, and a third is to interpret the Uni- versity ' s contributions and its needs for additional improvement. Sooner Magazine contains regular departments which appear in each issue. News of alumni appear in departments headed: " Calling the Roll of Sooner Classes, " " With the Armed Forces, " " Alumni in the News, " " Association Progress " and " Riding the Sooner Range. " News concerning the University is published under departments titled " Sooner Sports. " " Faculty, " " Medical School " and " Under- graduate Acitivities. " News is combined with in- terpretation and analysis from time to time in edi- torials, stories on progress in the arts and sciences and features on topics of current interest. Wherever Sooners get together they organize a Sooner Club, and Sooner Magazine has followed the activities of many of the 47 alumni clubs located in such far-flung places as Bartlesville and Altus, Washington. D. C, Guam, the South Pole, the Aleu- tians, Tokyo and the Fiji Islands. Two other for- eign groups are in Honolulu and the Panama Canal Zone. Other distantly located Sooner clubs with which Sooner Magazine keeps contact include those in New York City, Chicago, Fort Smith. Kansas City. St. Louis, Los Angeles, Minneapolis. Wichita. Dallas, Tyler, Wichita Falls, Seattle and Denver. In Okla- homa there are 22 active OU alumni clubs. During the past year, as in each year since the George Souris Editor Page 282 Seated, left to right. Second Row: Tidwe war began, Sooner Magazine has journeyed to every part of the world where University of Oklahoma servicemen and women have served in the armed forces. To these alumni, as well as to those who now are on occupational duty or hold civilian posi- tions overseas. Sooner Magazine, as many of them have termed it, is " like a letter from home. " Harold Keith, ' 29 B. A., ' 39 M. A., director of University sports publicity, has contributed many of the sports stories and features to Sooner Magazine ' s popular Sooner sports department; Dr. Ralph Bien- fang, professor of pharmacy, regularly has written his informal feature column, " The Drug Mill, " for Sooner Magazine, and Dr. H. A. Shoemaker and Dr. John F. Hackler, ' 31 B. S., ' 33 M. D., have consis- tently sent in articles concerning the University Med- ical School and its graduates. George Souris, journalism senior from St. Louis, has served as editor of Sooner Magazine since June, 1946. At the same time, he was editor of the Alumni Bulletin, quarterly publication, and was an issue edi- tor on the Oklahoma Daily staff for five months. Previously, he served as editor of the Sooner Hoist, University NROTC magazine. Staff writers Jess Heck, Quapaw, and Larry Ste- phenson, Headrick, both of whom are journalism juniors, have made substantial contributions to Sooner Magazine with their thorough coverage of campus and alumni news. The former joined the staff in November. 1946, and the latter in February, 1947. Heck has served as a reporter for the Miami ( Oklahoma ) Daily News Record before attending the University. Stephenson was a staff and feature Heck, McLean, Turnbull. Stephenson, Burks. writer on the Oklahoma Daily, and was a reporter for the O. C. U. newspaper. For over a year, Betty Jean McLean, sophomore in commercial education from Anadarko, has kept Sooner Magazine readers in contact with each other with her " Calling the Roll of Sooner Classes " section. She served as society editor of the Anadarko Daily News before coming to OU. Mrs. Mary Turnbull, administrative secretary of alumni records, keeps accurate tab on the location and occupation of Sooner graduates and former stu- dents. Others in the Alumni office who assist " be- hind the scenes " include Mrs. Billie Tidwell, secre- tary; and Mrs. John Burks, Tyellys Bill, business ad- ministration senior from Norman, and Ann Willson, freshman from Ponca City, stenographers. Lui Antonelli, ' 41 B. A., senior law student from Wilburton, and Joe N. Croom. journalism senior from Okmulgee, handle the task of mailing all Alumni office and Sooner Magazine matter. Issued 12 months out of the year, the first issue of Sooner Magazine came off the press in October, 1928, with Joseph A. Brandt, ' 21 B. A., former di- rector of presses at the University (and president of the University of Oklahoma from August, 1941. to January, 1944) as editor. Later editors were Ernie Hill. ' 32 B. A., who has been South American cor- respondent for the Chicago Daily News foreign serv- ice, representing more than 100 newspapers; Roscoe Gate, ' 26 B. A., financial assistant to the president of the University; Mrs. Edith ' Walker Hefley, ' 41 B. A.; and Mrs. Elaine Larecy McCool, ' 42 B. A.

Tatum coached at Jacksonville Na- val Air Station while in the navy, serving under L. E. " Jap " Haskell, OU director of uitercollegiate athletics, who was then in charge of the athletic setup at Jacksonville. Tatum resigned his job to go to Maryland University as athletic director and head coach. Charles " Bud Wilkinson was chosen to succeed him. L. E.

He was faced with the task of preparing Oklahoma athletic teams for their strenuous peacetime schedules. Haskell went here and there, working tirelessly, planning and scheduling, and generally things went pretty smoothly. Haskell is praised for his fair and equal treatment to all athletic teams, minor or major.

Left: Enplaning for their Eastern tilt with the mighty Army team, victorious in 19 straight games, the Sooners. under the new head football coach, Jim Tatum. were on the short end of the odds which stood between 3 and 6 touchdowns. But it was an inspired Oklahoma team that took the field for that opening game, and with President Truman looking on, the big white- jersied Sooners stood up and slugged it toe to toe with the cadets. Then it happened. Army was back on its four-yard line shortly after the second period started. Ple be Joe Green went back to punt, a white-suited Sooner jumped in the way, and Norman McNabb, left guard playing his first game of var- sity ball, plopped on the ball in the end zone. Dave Wallace, placekicking specialist for the Sooners, booted the conversion and the big scoreboard said Oklahoma 7, Army 0. But Army was not to be denied. With 47 seconds remaining in the first half. Arnold Tucker, cadet quarterback, lifted a short aerial to end flank Foldberg for 6 points. Mackmull kicked the extra point and the halftime score stood at 7-7. Shortly after the third quarter started, the cadets went ahead on a 1-yard scoring plunge by " Ug " Fuson, substitute fullback playing in Doc Blanchard ' s place. The Sooners drove right back and were knocking for the tying marker when misfortune reared its ugly head in the person of Tucker, who scooped a fumbled lateral out of the air and sailed 86 yards for Army ' s third score.

M Goes Down ID ■ 7 Suffering a mental letdown after the inspired play against Army, Oklahoma squeezed out a 10—7 victory over Te.xas A M on halfback Dave Wallace ' s 25-yard field goal in the last 40 seconds of the hard-fought tilt. It was the seasonal home opener for the Sooners and 28,000 fans flocked to Owen stadium to see this team that had played Army such a great game. Coach Jim Tatum ' s charges pushed the College Station team all over the field, piling up a considerable margin in statistics, but they couldn ' t find the necessary scoring punch but once. Norman McNabb blocked a kick and fell on it on the Aggies 6-yard line in the second quarter to set up the Sooners ' lone touchdown. Jack Mitchell, quarterback, lugged it over and Wallace converted. The boys from Texas tied it up in the third quarter, however, when Marion Flanagan, Aggie quarterback, took Eddy Davis ' s punt on his own 28 and sidelined it 72 yards to score. John Ballentine kicked the conversion and the score stood 7-7 until Wallace ' s game-winning boot in the closing seconds. Several times the OU eleven seemed headed for a score, only to be thwarted near the goal. Darrell Royal ' s running, and the line play of Buddy Burris and Homer Paine were highlights of the game. It was Royal who scooted 30 yards on the play that set up Wallace ' s field goal try. LonghDrns Surprise 13 - 2D Upper left: Warren Giese. end. Left: Paul Buddy " Burris, guard. All-Big Six. All-Ainerican. For the second time in three weeks. Oklahoma faced the na- tion ' s number one football team. This week, it was Texas, who had replaced Army in the ranking position, that the Sooners went up against in the forty-first renewal of the Southwest ' s top inter- state football game. Again the University eleven had been pre- dicted to lose by from 4 to 7 touchdowns, and again they upset the dopesters. Before the largest crowd ever to see a gridiron contest in Texas, 50.000 estimated, the Tatum crew dug out from a 14-point deficit, incurred by the deadly passing of Bobby Layne and the running and passing of Frank Guess, to pull within one point of the Steers at 14-13 early in the fourth period. The ac- curate passing of Dave Wallace to End Jim Owens accounted for the Oklahoma counter that made the score 14—6 at halftime. Then Joe Golding sped out of nowhere to intercept a Layne to Hub Bechtol pass in the fourth period and scooted 99 yards for the most thrilling touchdown of the day. Wallace converted and the Sooners trailed by only one point. The Longhorns came storming back on Layne ' s accurate tosses to march 75 yards for 6 points and a 20-13 lead. Oklahoma was not through, however, and runs by Darrell Royal and Golding and passes from Wallace to Owens carried them to the Texas 9-yard line. Here the Steer defense held, and they took over on a fourth down just as the game ended. Royal, Golding. and Wallace in the backfield and Plato Andros. right guard, and John Rapacz, center, turned in fine performances for the Sooners. Lower right: Jim Tyree. end, All-Big Six.

Kansas State Wildcats Skinned 2B - 7 Again feeling the effects of the previous week ' s game, Oklahoma ' s Sooners were .held to a 7-7 check for nearly three quarters in the second home game of the season before Joe Golding ' s running wizardry stepped off touchdown runs of 12 and 81 yards in the fourth period. With the second team starting the game, the Sooners were held to a standstill by the inspired Kansas State eleven before the first team entered the game late in the first period. On Golding ' s first run of the game he sped 43 yards to make up the initial OU points. Dave Wallace kicked the goal, but that was all for the red and white in the first half. The Wildcats came clawing back to tie up the count on Bill Edwards ' 6-yard slant and Harmon Lesco s conversion. Jack Mitchell, Sooner quarterback, slashed 60 yards near the end of the third period to set up two dashes by Golding that netted 20 yards and the second Sooner score. Wallace again converted. In the fourth period, Golding turned in his 81 -yard jaunt, then Eddy Davis jammed across from the one-yard line for the fourth and final tally. Wallace also converted after both of these markers to make the final tally 28-7, Sooners. 25,000 fans were again on hand to see the Oklahoma eleven win its first Big Six test. Iowa State CyclonGd B3 - D Upper left: Homer Paine, tackle, All-Big Six. Left: Jess Trotter, tackle. Finally unleashing a powerful offensive attack. Oklahoma ' s red and white shifted Sooners clipped their second Big Si. foe, Iowa State, 63-0, at Ames, Iowa, the worst defeat ever suffered by a Cyclone football team. Eddy Davis started the ball rolling in the first quarter when he scooted 46 yards for the Sooners ' first score. Wallace kicked the first of his five conversions and the Okla- homans held a 16-0 lead at half time. Then the rout began, and the longer the afternoon lasted, the more the Sooners scored. Laddie Harp, fourth string halfback, even got one after the final gun had been fired prematurely. Fans had to be chased off the field, then Iowa State had five seconds in which to run a play. They passed. Harp intercepted, and the Sooner trackman outdis- tanced the corn state boys 68 yards to score after the gun had gone off for good. Davis, Dinkins, Mitchell. Golding, Allsup, Kreick and Thomas chalked up the other OU markers. Allsup and Kreick got two 6-pointers apiece. Thomas and Kreick each added an extra point to their scoring list. Again. Coach Jim Tatum used lots of reserves and the subs, entering the game with the score 43-0, piled over three touchdowns in the last five minutes. It was the first time an Iowa State team had been held scoreless in their last 35 games and following the tilt, a 630 club was organized on the Cyclone campus to build up Iowa State football with scholar- ships and other aids to footballers. 16.000 " Homecomers " saw the game.

T C U Mudded 14 - 12 Costly fumbles, blocked kicks, and a hard rain that turned the field into a quag- mire nearly gave Texas Christian an upset victory over the Sooners at Fort Worth, but the Oklahomans, despite the misfortunes, slushed through for a 14-12 victory on the capable toe-work of Dave Wallace who booted the two important e.xtra points. The Sooners found themselves in the hole right after the game started when TCU Guard Harold Kilman collected a Darrell Royal fumble out of the air and sped up field to the Frogs ' 40 where he lateraled to Weldon Edwards, Froggie tackle, who slithered the rest of the way to score. Oklahoma came back in the second quarter and with Eddy Davis, Joe Golding and Wallace hitting the line, moved down to the Frogs 2-yard line where Jack Mitchell took it over. Mitchell scored the Sooners ' second touchdown on a 41 -yard punt return in the third period. Doug Brightwell, sophomore guard, took a blocked kick 16 yards for the second TCU score in the final period. The Christians threatened twice more in the last period, but fumbles also stopped them both times. Oklahoma fumbled nine times in the muddy contest; TCU seven. Approxi- mately 5.000 hardy fans braved the rampaging elements to see the Sooners make it 2 out of 3 over Southwest conference foes during the 1946 season. ' ' q - ' !J ' i ' " ' .

Old man mud and a seemingly impossible 41 -yard field goal produced one of the major upsets of the season as Oklahoma, playing its second straight game on a muddy gridiron, fell be- fore a highly opportunist Kansas team. 13-16, at Lawrence, Kansas. Fighting from behind at every turn of the game, the Sooners relied heavily on Joe Golding and his twinkle-toes to twice turn in tie-scoring runs of 65 and H yards on the rain- soaked turf. The Jayhawkers. taking advantage of every break, recovered an OU fumble on the fourth play of the game and from the Sooner 24-yard line, Ray Evans passed to Otto Schnellbacher, who lateraled to Dick Bertuzzi for the initial marker. The Sooners then trailed for 15 minutes before Gold- ing took the ball and tied the score with the 65-yard jaunt. Then a fumble gave the Kansans the pigskin on the OU 19 and a penalty moved it to the four. Another penalty moved it to the lj 2 3 " i Lynne McNutt, Kansas fullback, pushed it over. Don Fambrough kicked the extra point to give the Jayhawks a 13-6 lead at the half. OU came gunning back at the start of the second half and marched 73 yards to score, with Golding eating up the last 14 yards. Dave Wallace booted what looked like an all-important extra point, but with only a minute and twenty seconds to play, third-stringer Joe Turner entered the game for Kansas and booted his miraculous field goal.

And a record-breaking crowd of 33.413 fans packed Owen stadium to see Coach Jim Tatum ' s powerful Sooners smother the Missouri Tigers under a cloak of three first quarter touchdowns and coast to a 27-6 victory. Bouncing back from the slimy Kansas defeat, the Sooners moved into a tie with Missouri. Kansas and Nebraska for the Big Six lead. From end to end, the powerful Sooner forward wall was hewn out of solid granite and it continually pushed the Tiger back on its haunches. The game was only seven minutes old when Joe Golding took the ball over and Dave Wal- lace converted for the extra point. Homer Paine had recovered a Tiger fumble on the 37 to set up the tally. Then Buddy Burris blocked a Missouri punt on fourth down and the ball went to OU on the Tiger 12. Wallace passed to End Warren Giese in the end zone and then booted the extra point. Paine again recovered a Bengal fumble, this time on the MU 15 and Golding carried over again. Wallace missed the point but the Oklahomans changed ends of the field with a 20—0 lead. Eddy Davis got the final marker in the second quarter after Golding had run an intercepted pass back 78 yards. Davis cracked over from the 15 and Wallace again converted. With Sooner subs playing the second half, Missouri punched over a 6-pointer near the end of the fourth quarter. Cornhuskers Shucked 27 - B Upper left: Laddie Harp, halfback. Le f: Jack Mitchell, quarterback. With almost every man on the squad playing, the Sooners clinched a tie for the Big Si.x conference by defeating a scrappy, but out-manned Nebraska eleven, 27-6, on Owen stadium ' s green turf. Fullback Eddy Davis sailed over the Husker left side for 21 yards late in the opening canto for the initial OU score. Dave Wallace kicked the point and Coach Tatum s charges were on the way. But not before a determined Ne- braska drive netted 6 points in the same period. Again, this time with Charlie Sarratt and Bobby Goad doing most of the damage with a 34-yard pass combine, OU drove 65 yards to score. There was only a minute to go when Joe Golding dashed over from the 8. Jim Martin kicked the conversion to edge the Sooners to a 14-6 rest period lead. In the third quar- ter, it was Quarterback Jack Mitchell who engineered an 80- yard march and scampered the remaining 24 yards into pay- dirt. Martin again converted. Darrell Royal and Goad teamed up midway in the fourth period, the last one on the Ne- braska 8-yard stripe from where he bucked past three Corn- huskers for the final Sooner points. The Sooners, with substi- tutes flooding the field, drove down to the Nebraska 3-yard line late in the final period, but the threat fizzled there. Twenty- five thousand saw the final home game of the season, and the last appearance on Owen field of a Tatum-coached Oklahoma squad. Lower right: Jim Owens, end.

Aggies Traunced 73 - 12 It was a beautiful day. Ten touchdowns, 10 extra points, and a field goal thrown in for good measure went into the record books as Oklahoma ' s Sooners avenged the 19-15 Aggie plastering with a 73—12 runaway on Lewis field at Stillwater. Sparring the first part of the game, the Sooners cut loose near the end of the first period to snow under the Cowpokes with an avalanche of points that built up a 66—0 lead before the Aggies could score in the last quarter as Oklahoma ' s last line substitutes took the field. Golding got 3 touchdowns. Mitchell 1, Owens 2, Goad 1, Sarratt 2, and Harp 1. Wal- lace kicked 9 placements and a field goal, and Martin got 1 conversion. Plato Andros, John Rapacz. Buddy Burris, Homer Paine, Wade Walker, Jim Tyree, Bill Morris, Bobby Goad, Jim Owens, Merle Dinkins, Earl Hale, Stanley West, and a host of other linemen turned in a great rock-ribbed performance for the red and white line. Brilliant runs, long and short passes, and stout line play featured this showing of the powerful Oklahoma team. The Sooners scored practically every way possible, from Mitchell ' s 70 yard crowd-pleaser to a 1-yard pass to Goad. Near-perfect football was played by the Tatum team in the massacre. And a turn-away crowd of 18,500 saw the best show of the year. n U Clips Kansas and Missouri upper Left: Kenneth Pryor. forward, All-Big Six 1944. Le f: Elton Davis, guard. The greatest basketball season in the history of the University came to a close on Tuesday night, March 25. when Coach Bruce Drake ' s Western NCAA champions failed in their bid for the national title, losing to Holy Cross ' s Eastern division champions. 47-58, on the Madison Square Garden floor in New York City. Despite that loss, OU took national runner-up honors, and it was a banner year for the roundballers. Win- ners of 24 out of 31 games; Big Six champions: victors over Oregon State.

A M Falls at Stillwater For Coach Drake, it was his ninth year of coaching Sooner cage teams and the third time in those nine years that he has had a crew in the NCAA playoffs. Ending their regular season with a 21 won and 6 lost record, the OU cagers met St. Louis University, MV titlist, and twice winner over Oklahoma A M, in a playoff tilt to decide the fifth district representative in the NCAA tourney. Played in Kansas City, the game was never much in doubt after the first 10 minutes, as the Sooners sped to a 47—41 victory, easier than the score indicates. Tucker led the Drakemen through this one, netting 16 points. Coming back home for three days ' rest, the red and white then departed for the western playoffs, also played on Kansas City ' s municipal auditorium court. Draw- ing Oregon State ' s strong Beavers in the first round, OU went into the tilt four points the underdogs. Displaying exceptionally good basketball, the Sooners led the Beavers up until the last four minutes, at one time by 14 points, when Oregon State scooted into a one-point lead. Then the lead see-sawed twice before Oklahoma pulled out its famous " Double Zero " for the two quick baskets and a 56-54 upset. And again it was Tucker who gained the plaudits of the crowd with a magnificent performance, grabbing 17 points to share high scoring honors for OU with Paul Courty, rebounding artist deluxe in the playoffs.

NCAA championship, Texas, pre-tourney favorites, grabbed a 29-22 first half lead, but the Sooners came fighting back and took the lead shortly after the second period started. The Longhorns fought back, and with 25 seconds to go, went into the front on a free throw, 54-53. Kenneth Pryor ' s jump-shot put the Oklahoma team into the finals, 55-54, however, with 5 seconds left in the game. Tucker led OU scorers with 15 markers. Against Holy Cross in the final tilt, OU led at half- time, 31-28, but hit a second half scoring slump and went down. And it was Tucker who kept the Sooners in the ball game with 22 points to lead all scorers. That game left the season ' s record at 24 won and 7 lost, Oklahoma started its long season on December 2, 1946, on the Fieldhouse floor against Warrens- burg Teachers, Using 15 players, OU took an easy 49-21 victory with Courty showing the way with eight points. Next game was against Texas Tech ' s Red Raiders, losers by three points to Oklahoma A M the night before. Tucker and Wa- ters, with 10 points apiece, led the red-clad crew to a 60-37 win. Drake then herded his charges down to Dallas for a two-night stand against TCU and SMU. Oklahoma hit a new all-time scoring mark against the Frogs, winning 76-54. Tucker nabbed 19 points and Waters, his understudy, got 12. The next night, SMU fell to the Sooners, 66-41, as Kenny Pryor plopped in 14 to lead the scoring.

But Kansas State ' s Wildcats turned in a major upset in the first round by downing the Drakemen, 59-55. Tucker hit 24 points in this one, but they weren ' t enough. In the consolation round, the Sooners turned back Missouri, 61-53, in a hard-fought game. Tucker hit his seasonal high in that tilt, chalking up 28 points. OU didn ' t have much trouble with Nebraska on Saturday night in the consolation finals, scoring a 63-53 decision. Tucker plunked in 12 for a 3-game total of 64, high for the tournament. He also made the all- tourney team. Then it was to Wisconsin for a battle with the Badgers, undefeated and Big Nine favorites. Behind at the end of the first half, the Sooners came back strong to score 19 points while holding Wisconsin to 1 and won going away, 56—40. The Soon- ers ' flat-footed center. Tucker, turned in one of the greatest performances of the season with a great floor game and high-scoring honors of 22 points as well. Again Drake ' s men were favored in the second tourney of the year, the All-College in Oklahoma City. And again they were foiled. Against Baylor in the first round, they looked good in winning, 64-47, as Tucker dunked 21 points. But Kansas took OU into camp the next night. 51-45.

OU apparently recovered from its all-college slump on the east- ern tour, dropping CCNY, 55-52. for the City College ' s first loss of the season, and knocking Bradley Tech spinning, 65-54. Tucker and Courty led scorers in the New York game with 18 and 16 points, respectively. Against Bradley, it was Courty and Waters, with 17 and 15 points, who paved the way. Wa- ters hit the last four Sooner goals. Then came the heart- breaker. On the third game of the trip. OU fell before Ne- braska, 41-44, in the first Big Six tilt of the year. Again it was jumping Paul Courty, with 16 points, who paced the Sooners. And Courty led the Drakemen in their comeback against Kan- sas, scoring 14 points as the Sooners overcame a 14-point deficit to defeat the Jayhawks, 50-47. Then the rejuvenated Univer- sity five dropped two straight conference foes. Kansas State by 50-30 and Missouri, 57-43. Tucker grabbed 19 and 21 points, respectively, to lead scorers. Taking on A M on the Field- house court, Oklahoma dropped a thrilling overtime battle. 42- 47, before a packed house. Paine, with 12, and Reich, with 10. led the OU scorers.

For the first time in history, the cross country team par- ticipated in the nationals, finishing 12th in a field of over 20 major schools. Training at " Pneumonia Downs, " the name given the indoor plant in the East stadium by Harold Keith, a sports publicity director, the Sooner indoor tracksters found it hard to compete with other conference schools who had steam-heated layouts for practice. But despite the cold winter weather. Jacobs ' men took Oklahoma Af M into camp in the first indoor dual meet in history between the two schools. But in a return match at Stillwater, the Aggies won over the Sooners in a meet decided by the last event, the mile relay. Going to Nebraska for their third indoor meet of the season, the red and white runners ran into too much manpower and fell before the Cornhuskers. On March 1, Oklahoma traveled to Kansas City ' s municipal auditorium for the Big Six meet. Oklahoma placed seven men in the finals, but only one came through for an individual championship. Bill Lambeth, Maud fresh- man and All-American high school jumper, soared to a new conference indoor record of 6 feet, 5 inches, for the lone Sooner championship. Oklahoma wound up fourth in the team scoring behind Missouri, Nebraska and Kansas, who finished in that order. Laddie Harp. Landon Wcstbrook. John Montgomery, Mayo Martin. Andy Cary, Kenneth Biggins, Bob Let.son, Ray Burns, Bill Weaver R. C. Slocum. Clarence Vicklund. John Canaris, Jon Sharp, Hobo Gilstrap. Jay Corneli.son. Merwin McConnel, Lambeth. Dick Cavnar and John Gough were Sooner entries in the meet. Page 306 Page 307 BASEBALL Oklahoma ' s 1947 baseball season started too late for the Yearbook ' s deadline, but early practice sessions indicated that Coach Jack Baer ' s nine would be tall in the saddle again, as they were last year. Nearly 100 boys reported to Baer when he called the first practice session and the diamond coach had his hands full with good, solid material. A large group of lettermen reported back from past Sooner squads, plus a whole host of other top baseball talent. Lettermen returning were Hal Cumberland, Ray Lacer, Robert Reese, Danny Bur- rell. Jack Venable. W. L. Fry, Johnny Chyz. Bill Sims. Bob Cairns, Herb Smith, Don Smith, Lewis Eubanks, C. D. " Red " Deal, Delbert Holt, Jack Hammond and Jack Watkins, The Sooners had 28 games carded for the ' 47 season, including four stints with the Oklahoma Aggies, annually one of the top baseball series in the southwest. Last year the Sooners and Cowpokes split the four games played. Oklahoma won 17 out of 20 games and took the Big Si. championship in the 1946 season. The Sooners began by sweeping the annual campaign into Texas, taking games from Te.xas Christian. Texas and Baylor. At Austin, Baer ' s nine twice defeated Coach Bib Falk ' s formidable Longhorns, 9-6 and 8-5. Afterwards, Texas went on all victorious to take the Southwest conference championship. Two of the three games lost were to the Aggies, one on the Haskell park diamond, the other at Stillwater. But the Sooners also took two from the Cowpokes in the same manner. Lone loss in the Big Six came at Ames. Iowa, when the Cyclones of Iowa State put the only blemish on the conference slate. In addition to Cumberland. Lacer. Reese. Burrell. Venable. Fry and Watkins, the 1947 roster of pitchers included Harold Hunter. Elton Davis and Roy Angel. John Rapacz. All-American footballer. Chyz and Simms were catching. Rudy Delgado joined Cairns and Herb Smith in the fight for the first base job and Jimmy Mitchell and Don Smith were second base candidates. Harold Seely and Holt were patroling left field. Bob Hammond, Mace Avant and Martin Schofield were heading the list of center fielders. Dennis Shogren and Leroy Lawson were right field candidates. m m ■ ' i»k- ' . SWIMMING In a state where there is little high school swimming. Coach Joe Glander did all right with the 1947 University team. Starting from scratch, Glander whipped into shape one of the best swim teams in booner history, a team that broke three pool records and one University record during dual meets. Glander, a wiry lit- tle man with a fine coaching record behind him, came to OU from Bowling Green, Ohio, where his 1946 crew won 9 of 10 duals. He is also assistant trainer for the football squad. This season, the University team participated in 8 dual meets, winning 5 of them. Starting the season with a four-meet trip into Texas, the Sooners met Baylor at Waco on January 15, snowing under the Bear swimmers with a 68 to 7 victory. Ne.xt night, the tables were turned and Te.xas A6M dunked the OU crew, 56 to 19. Glanders men went ahead on the trip by downing Te.xas, 39 to 36, at Austin. But SMU edged them again the next night, 38—37, to give the University crew a trip standing of 2 wins and 2 losses. All four duals were on successive nights. Three weeks later, the OU splashers visited Kansas State, and surprised the strong Wild- cat team. 44-40. by virtue of a victory in the last event, the 400-yard free style relay. The next night at Lincoln, Nebraska, the Cornhusk- ers eked out a 43-41 victory. Then Glanders crew rounded out the dual season with a 50-25 win over SMU and a 49- 35 victory over Kansas State, both in the home pool. As the University team headed into the Big Six meet at Ames, Iowa, Iowa State and Kansas State appeared to be the favorites to take the team trophy. New records set by the splashers were in the 220-yard free style, the medley relay and the 400-yard free style relay. Kay Burns, fresh- man from Findlay, Ohio, set a new pool and University record of 2:24.8 in the 220. The medley relay team is composed of Tom Bacher. junior from Budapest. Hungary, backstroke: Harold Brighton, freshman from Coffeyville. Kansas, breast stroke: Gene Womble. freshman from Tulsa, freestyler. The 400-yard relay team includes Kay Burns. Harry Hill, sopho- more from Bridgeport. Conn.. Gene Womble. and Jim McWilliams. Tulsa freshman. Other men on the team are: Forrest Dunbar, freestyler from Freeport. N. Y.: Bob Ehly. sophomore diver from Bartlesville: Walter Farr, freestyler from Bartlesville: Rex Hayes, free- styler. Oklahoma City: Dick Mitchell, free style. Arkansas City. Kan.; John Morledge. breast stroke, from Oklahoma City: Joe Racz. free style, Bridgeport. Conn,; and Dick Robin- son. Miami. Okla.. diver. Page 308 WRESTLING For the first time in seven years, the Univer- sity fielded a wrestling team. And it was an uphill battle all the way for Coach Port Robert- son as he took over the mat reins in its first year of reactivation. Robertson is a former Sooner wrestler from Edmond. Oklahoma, who was noted for his excellent balance and his ability to think in action. He won Big Six titles in 1935 and 1937. Robertson started the year with only one returning letterman. Mason Smarr. but he had a group of eager veterans that he gradually built up into a good mat team. All the men had wrestled in high school. First match of the season was against Iowa State ' s strong crew in the Fieldhouse. the only home match of the season. The inexperienced Sooner grapplers came out on the short end of a 21—9 score. Raymond Gibbs. 121 -pounder. Jim Eagleton. 165-pounder. and Leger Stecker, 1 75-pounder, were grapplers who won their in- itial matches. Next duty for the matmen was a three-match tour lasting five days. On this trip, the Sooners met Nebraska and defeated them. 16-H. with Gibbs. Eagleton. Stecker and Kenneth Watson, H5-pounder. all turning in wins. The next match was with a good Kansas State cre ' at Manhattan. It was the second match in as many nights for the wrestlers and they bowed to the Wildcats. 9 to 17. Again it was Gibbs. Eagleton and Stecker who wrestled winning matches for OU. Last lap of the tour was a match with the champion Oklahoma Aggies ' grapplers. In this one, the Sooner matmen fought tooth and toenail in every match, but superior conditioning and experience told the tale, and A6M won 25-3. Jim Eagleton was the lone Sooner winner, as he remained unde- feated for the season. Gibbs and Stecker met their first defeats. As Robertson ' s crew headed into the Big Six tourney at Manhattan. Eagleton. Gibbs. Stecker and Watson appeared to hold the hopes of any Sooner championships. Squad members for the 1947 season were: Tom Allen. Ralph Cox. Jim Eagleton. Fred Edwards. Raymond Gibbs. Roy Hunter. Leonard Marcottc. Jimmie Powell. Paul Reed. Jr.. Henry Schreiner. Mason Smarr. Jess Spring. Leger Stecker. Kenneth Watson. Edward Webb, Orville Wise and J. J. Bashara. Oklahoma also had matches with Southwest- ern Tech and Central State squads this season. Robertson did a fine job of rebuilding Sooner wrestling and with all men expected to return next year, Oklahoma should regain its once high position among the mat schools of the nation. Page 309 t Hugh V. M :Di:rmott DEPARTMENTAL HEADS The season for athletics is over and although the players and the coaches have been the favored ones when it came to honor and glory given in athletics, there are those who do much of the work and re- ceive no decorations. These are the men " behind the scenes " who are responsible for helping to get the stage ready and who pull the curtain. Their jobs are varied and their responsibilities are great. No team has finished a successful year without the whole-hearted support of these men. It is their job to see that each department operates smoothly, to attend to the financial management of the entire de- partment and to publicize the coaches and players. To these men Sooner supporters owe a debt of grati- tude for their part in making Sooner athletics what they are today. Harold Keith is director of sports publicity and has been since 1930. He graduated in 1929 from the University. One of his chief traits is his reluc- tance to talk about himself. Hugh V. McDermott is chairman of the department of physical education for men and coordinator for the navy athletic program on the campus. William J. Cross is business manager of the athletic department. Mr. Cross was the greatest quarterback under the " old rule " in Sooner history. This year was one that will long stand in the memories of the departmental heads. The over-abundance of superior talent that returned from the service along with the well-trained returnees of last year ' s teams made the task of publicity director an ever increasing difficult one as the public clamored to know what to expect in the season ' s contests.

Tliis year has witnessed the outstanding accomplishments of small, hut prac- tical, groups of students. From the largest honorarij society to the smallest activity group, there has been interest demonstrated that has made " Organization " a powerful and guiding iiifluence on every student. It is the opportunity these activities afford every individual within the University that makes them such a vital need. Practicing and attaining professional qualities, are truly worthwhile to the undergraduate; theij extend the balancing arm between his scholastic work and his extra curricula activities. Affording a chance to ex- press interests and ambitions, organizations will continue fostering a better school life and an enthusiastic spirit for accomplishments. Page 312 G R E E K S Page 313 PAN-HELLENIC COUNCIL " We. the fraternity undergraduate members, stand for good scholarship, for the guardians of good health, for whole-hearted cooperation with our col- lege ' s ideals for student life, for the maintenance of fine social standards and the serving to the best of our ability, our college community. Good college citizenship as a preparation for good citizenship in the larger world of alumnae days is the ideal that shall guide our chapter activities. " We. the fraternity women of America, stand for preparation for service through character building inspired in the close contact and the deep friendship of fraternity life. To us fraternity life is not the enjoyment of special privileges but an opportunity to prepare for wide and wise human service. " This is the National Panhellenic Creed and as such it is the standard toward which the Women ' s Panhellenic Association of the University of Okla- homa strives. The Panhellenic Council was organized in 1912 as a governing body for all inter-sorority activities. Each sorority is represented by two members, one of which is their president. A secretary and treasurer are elected from these regular representatives. The president is elected by the individual houses. This office rotates each year among the sororities, follow- ing the order in which the sororities were established on this campus. This year ' s officers of Women ' s Panhellenic Council are: Helen Jordan, a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma, president: Carolyn Mc- Dermott, a member of Alpha Chi Omega, secretary; Helen Jordan, President and Sarabeth Breedlove. a member of Alpha Phi, treasurer. The Council seeks to establish a close cooperation among the twelve sororities, making and enforcing all rules of rushing, pledging, and initiation. The Council strives to unify the interests of sorority and unaffiliated women on this campus. This year Panhellenic was pleased to welcome into its group a new chapter. Alpha Delta Pi. The chap- ter began its formal work in October with the pledg- ing of thirteen girls. Because of the ceaseless efforts and fine management of their sponsor. Mrs. Betty Jones, by February the chapter had a roll call of thirty-one girls and had also secured a house for their group, which is certainly a splendid beginning. Panhellenic realizes that with the increasing enroll- ment in the University, the fraternity system must be enlarged to take care of the increasing number of girls who desire to join a sorority and therefore we certainly w elcome the addition of this new group. This is the second new group to come on the campus during the year of 1946. In the spring of that year, the reactivated chapter of Alpha Gamma Delta was established and Panhellenic is looking forward to adding other new groups as soon as the housing conditions are improved. In September, Panhellenic Council and Interfra- ternity Council sponsored a mass meeting of all fra- ternity men and women on the campus at Holmberg Hall. Dr. W. Henry McLean. Grand Tribune of Sigma Chi Fraternity, delivered a talk on " What Is This Thing Called Fraternity. " The purpose of this talk ' as to impress upon the minds of these Greek students their responsibilities as fraternity members. One of he main projects of the year was a joint meeting of the scholarship chairmen from each soror- ity house to discuss their different scholarship pro- grams in order to help all the houses fo rmulate a better program to aid in raising the sorority scholar- ship average. The meetings were quite successful and a great deal was gained from them. The social activities of the group were climaxed by the annual Autumn Ball. It was decided to dis- pense with the traditional Spring Dance and use the money that would have been spent on the dance for a new stove for one of the University dorms. An- other Council project was the financial adoption of a war baby through the Foster Parents ' Plan for War Children Association. Page 314 First row, left to right: Jordan, McDermott. Breedlove.

A particular effort was made by Panhellenic this year to conduct a fire safety and precaution program in the houses in cooperation with the Norman fire marshall. Several houses made major and minor changes in their sorority houses after a discussion of the subject in Panhellenic meetings and a check up by the fire marshall. Each house was made respon- sible for conducting group discussions of fire safety measures. Each semester Panhellenic presents an award to the sorority with the highest scholastic average and also presents an award to the pledge class with the highest scholastic standing. In addition to this, the Council, this year, presented nine scholarships to worthy independent women on this campus. Plans are being made for the annual Spring Pan- hellenic Retreat which will be held in April of this year and will last for a complete weekend. Reports will be given by each sorority of suggestions they received at their National Conventions last summer. Also plans are being made for a joint meeting of the Oklahoma City Alumnae Panhellenic rush committee with the Council ' s rush committee to work together on a plan to reduce rush to a more simplified program and improve our system as much as possible. Both the old members and the new members of the Council will attend the Retreat, as well as delegates from Junior Panhellenic. In 1944 the Junior Panhellenic Association was formed. This organization is composed of three rep- resentatives from each of the Pledge Classes, one of which is a floating representative, in that a different representative comes each meeting in order that each pledge on the campus may attend at least one of these meetings. This group has an expressed desire to cooperate with the University authorities in their effort to maintain high cultural, educational, and so- cial standards. Their meetings are forums for the discussion of problems common to the various fra- ternity pledges. They strive for greater unity and cooperation among these groups. Junior Panhel- lenic has proved to be valuable training in Panhel- lenic work and has given the new girls on the cam- pus an opportunity to learn about the fraternity and sorority system as a whole. Their meetings are held twice a month in the different sorority houses and after the meeting refreshments are served. Their work for this year consisted of their discussions of rush problems, and a list of suggestions is being drawn up to be presented to the Panhellenic Council at the Retreat this spring. They sponsored a drive among the pledge classes on the campus for dona- tions to the World Student Service Fund. Their activities were climaxed with a Spring Dance. The officers of Junior Panhellenic this year are: Elizabeth Fell, president; Ann Noftsger, secretary; Diane Bum- pus, treasurer; and Miss Marguerite Smith, Assis- tant Counselor of Women, sponsor. Miss Virginia Reinecke. Counselor of Women, is sponsor of Panhellenic Council and works with us in solving problems and accomplishing our progress. Page 315 KAPPA ALPHA THETA Seventy-seven years ago Kappa Al- pha Theta was founded by four girls attending DePauw University in Greencastlc. Indiana. Bettie Locke Hamilton, after inspecting the men ' s fraternities on the DePauw campus, decided to start a similar organization for women. She discussed her idea with three other girls — Alice Allen Brandt, Hannah Fitch Shaw, and Bettie Tipton Lindsey — and on January 27. 1870, Kappa Alpha Theta was born. Several other chap- ters followed, and in 1872 the first Theta convention " was held, at which a National Grand Chapter was established. Our Alpha Omicron chapter, one of 67, has wit- nessed many events important to us this past year. Marcena PfeifFer, Carol Jean Wilson, and Julia Jar- rett were initiated after school started and Mary Lou Boydston. Jean McClendon, Mary Adele Blanchard and Betsy Douglas were pledged later on during the year. Brothers and sons of Theta members and alumnae were entertained at a dinner early in the fall. A few ■weeks later we had an opportunity to become better acquainted with our professors at our formal faculty tea. Just before Thanksgiving the annual Theta Snow Ball was held in the Officers Club at the South Base. Ice skating kittens played over the heads of the orchestra and huge snow men watched Thetas, in their white formals. and other couples dance to the music of the Varsity Club. Following the dance, breakfast was served in the house to mem- bers and their dates. Betty Tippitt, Marilyn Bridges, Betty Cotton and Julia Jarrett received nightly calls from the Beta Barn, DU mansion, Fiji house and Kappa Sig " Cas- bar ' respectively.

Many of our members and pledges made Theta proud of them by participating in University activities and receiving University honors — among them are Shirley Haddock, who was named in " Who ' s Who in American Colleges and Universities; " Hunter MacMurray, president of Ducks: Ethel Schrader. president of Psi Chi, honorary psychology fraternity; Mary Ann Kennedy, officer of both Kappa Gamma Epsilon. honorary language fraternity, and Entre Nous, honorary French fraternity. The Theta Bcwery party and their spring formal climaxed second semester social activities and ended one of our favorite years. Page 316 First Row. left to right: Mrs. G.

Tri Delt was founded by Sarah Ida Shaw, a student at Boston Univer- sity. Tri Delt was then the first to become a na- tional organization. At OU. Theta Gamma chapter was founded April 19, 1910. Gene Tierney, Mar- jorie Main and Lila Wallace are but a few of Tri Delt ' s outstanding alumnae. President Kathryn Fisher led the way both in ac- tivities and social life this year. On the organiza- tional side she is a member of Phi Beta Kappa and is listed in " Who ' s Who in American Colleges and Universities. " On the other hand, she is a member of the pinned and engaged group, courtesy of Phi Psi Bruce Scott. Kathryn and Bruce, along with Betty Kershner and Jimmy LeGette. Emmy Scott and Don Stidham, plan on a march to the altar before too long. Pins were flying thick and fast this year, and Tri Delt got its share of them. From down Kappa Sig way came Charles Bresnehen ' s pin for Phyllis Led- ford, and to keep the Sig Alphs represented was Bill Cook bearing violets for Jeanne Walter. Lou Griflin and Delt Paul Opp are making plans with the best of them, but Doddie Mason and Bob Jones have definitely decided on June. Almost sure to be added to the pinned list are Jane Ellen Mayes and DU Bill Jamar. but only time will tell. In Tri Delt ' s halls of fame is June Hodge, who serves as the efficient president of the UAB. Mor- tar Board came tapping at Doddie Mason ' s door and Mary Lou Royer represented the three D ' s on the Covered Wagon. The March of Dimes saw the Tri Delts entertain in a typical Stork Club fashion and rolled in the OFFICERS Kathryn Fisher President Mary Alice Chilsholm Vice-President Mary Howard Secretary Beverly Catlett Treasurer Alice June Hunter Rush Chairman Joan Fisher Social Chairman dimes for the cause. The social calendar included a faculty tea and the Spring formal using a garden motif. The remodeled recreation room in fuchsia and chartreuse was the scene of many bridge games, bull sessions and an all-round general good time. The list of steadies began to mount before the year was well under way. Mary Lingenfelter started the season by seeing only Virgil Reese, and " Butch.

The Okla- homa Alpha chapter was installed on the OU cam- pus in 1910, The sorority colors are wine and silver blue. The red brick colonial house on Lahoma is graciously presided over by Miss Gladys Scivally. The Pi Phi arrow pierced the bulls eye four times this year, for keeps that is. Jane Wilson wed Dale Martin, Texas Phi Gam, early in the fall, while Kay Cooley and Taylor Green, Kappa Sig, exchanged vows just before the holidays. During Christmas vacation, Frances Fell and Kappa Alpha Hawley Kilpatrick chose a single ring ceremony, while Mar- garet Alice Brown and Conrad Cook, Kappa Sig, preferred a double ring wedding. Among pin mates and steadies over Lahoma way Sig Alph and Kappa Sig frat men rate a majority. Betsy Gandy, Jeanette Carlson, Sally Berryhill, and Marcy Lain prefer violets and men of SAE.

In fact, it was an unusual weekend that at least one girl wasn ' t met on the stairway with squeals and exclamations from her sisters. While the year was still young, four of the key girls left the house on College street to join the ranks of the young married couples. Jackie Bramlett and Ver- non Stringer. Phi Psi: Sally Lou Mitchell and Phi Gam Paul Howell: Susan Hess and her " Champ " ; and Frances Pipkin and Ray Higgins — all became Mr. and Mrs. during the first semester. Mary Anne Panner. while remaining true to Kappa Sig Bill Price, being House Manager and president of Racquet Club, took time out to win the women ' s intramural tennis singles for the second consecutive year. The Kappa trio, consisting of Margie Adams. El- len Rowe Brillhart and Betty Smith, expanded into a quartet to admit Mary Allen Hess, who incidentally is the last of the famous Hess clan. Phyllis Prigmore, prexy, who was tapped by Mor- tar Board in December, also served as chairman of the Career Conference for 1946-47, and Helen Jor- dan took over as Panhellenic ' s able president. Kap- pas had the first sorority dance of the year October 4, to start the year ' s social activities off with a bang. The Kappa sweetheart dance came in January to cel- ebrate the completion of finals and the beginning of the new semester. With horses, tepees, and an as- sortment of Kappas in blankets, feathers and war paint decorating the landscape, the Kappas placed in the house decoration contest during Homecoming.

Indiana, and Psi chapter was estab- lished on the OU campus in 1916. With seventy- one chapters scattered throughout the country, Al- pha Chi Omega lists among its outstanding members Dorothy Thompson, Mrs. Richard E. Byrd and Mrs. Edward MacDowell. After a summer in New York as one of Mademoi- selle ' s college guest editors, TafFy Williams was busy all year acting as social chairman of the house and of UAB. Her many honors include membership in Gamma Alpha. Theta Sigma Pi and Mortar Board. Pledge president Diane Bumpas and Pat Lance helped make Now or Never Week and other campus events a success by their committee work. Mary Kay Marks was named outstanding freshman woman for 1945-1946 and was chosen as one of the Covered Wagon girls of the month. Homecoming meant first prize for the Alpha Chi float which was nearly blown away by the " fifty-mile an hour gale. " Ann Yeager, Marilyn Stover, Theda Rae Bonnewell. Dorothy Kamp and Nancy Rowe rode on the float, which helped to catch the Judge ' s eye. With men back on the campus, no one strayed for week ends, except perhaps for Dallas — and West Point. Pauline Cook was one of the most excited about the New York excursion, for as cheerleader she got to ride on the army mule and was enter- tained royally by the West Pointers. Margie Fey was also very enthusiastic, probably because of a certain cadet named Phil who in turn was very en- thusiastic about her. In December, Dotty Howell became Mrs. Carl OFFICERS Patty Mui-I.ins President Dorothy Kamp Vice-President Theda Rae Bonnewell Secretary Nancy McClintock Treasurer Carolyn McDermott Rush Chairman Lucille Williams Social Chairman Back and Billie Stone changed her name to Mrs. Raymond Scoufos.

This idea was responsible for the forma- tion of an organization based on high scholarship, leadership, and fine character which has been a po- tent influence in the lives of fifteen thousand young women. Alpha Phi called the first Inter-sorority Conference, which later became National Panhel- lenic Congress. The local chapter, Phi. was char- tered in 1917. The list of marriages, engagements, steadies and near steadies was long in the Alphafi house even be- fore the year was well under way. Pre.xy Dorothy Frye surprised the house when she left after the first semester to prepare for her June wedding to Sig Ep Wayne Rucker. Harriet Hunt and Dave Babcock settled down to a cozy pre-fab life after their Decem- ber wedding. Rose Kirkpatrick and Simon Spradlin followed in their footsteps when they rented their own little bungalow in Sooner City. The annual Christmas Dance was quite an occa- sion for all, but more especially for Sarabeth Breed- love who celebrated the evening by acquiring a ring. Marjorie Dodds and Kappa Sig Kit Farwell hit the steady trail, but everyone had a hard time decid- ing about Joyce Alworth and Acacia Clark Hudson, who had a definitely off again, on again affair. Joyce Adams and Sigma Nu Bill Hardwick had the same trouble, but of course they are still the best of friends. Bill ' s sister, Diane, and Chuck Stover tried it both ways, too. And if you looked hard enough you could always find Jayne McFarland and Lolita St. Clair with Delt neighbors Grant Keener and Bob Nuzum. They weren ' t going steady, but . . .

Pat Snow bade the West Point grads at Fort Sill goodbye and again joined the ranks of Alpha Phi second semester, Patty Warren kept everyone in stitches again this year and we were glad to have her back. Betty Laurence ran Patty a close second, especially with her Sadie Hawkins rendition at the Dogpatch party. All in all the girls at the corner of Elm and Brooks are enjoying this good college life.

The local chapter, Psi. was granted a charter in 1918. The favorite pastime around the house this year seemed to be marrying Phi Kaps. Mary Liz Camp, Betty Nell Cheadle and Biilie Jean Smith all took the fatal step the first semester and Alice Paramore made preparations to follow suit. From down Sigma Nu way. Rosemary Brown, who had Max Lawrence ' s pin all along, finally got a band on her third finger, left hand, and Mitzie Morse was the receiver of Jim Marsh ' s pin with a promise of wedding bells. Mari- gold stayed in there pitching. Jane Steinhorst spent the year going steady with Kappa Sig Joe Coker: Wilburta Cartwright did the same with his frat brother, Walt Johnson, while Nancy Johnson was the only girl in Beta Bill War- ner ' s date book. The girls weren ' t a bit ashamed of taking three such astute pledges out of circulation. Pledge Jo Dodson lost no time in selecting Figam Lytle Pruitt as her steady beau. Pre.xy Ava Jeanne f-follingsworth planned April vows with Phi Psi Ted Prater, while Dorothy Bee- gle and Alice Davis held out for their men at the cow college. Even in peacetime the army isn ' t neg- lected, it seems, for Jane Liebolt was altar bound with her army man and Jimmie Baker popped up one day with a West Point " A " pin. Lila Fern Escoe ' s two diamond rings kept her sisters wondering if she was only foolin , and a few KAs found favor with the pledge class. Along a more intellectual line, the house received the award for the greatest scholastic improvement and Liz Johnson was listed in " Who ' s Who in Amer- OFFICERS Ava Jkan Hollingsworth President Eleanor Thompson Vice-President Mary Gold Secretary Marilyn Massey Treasurer Connie Crane Rush Chairman Elizabeth Johnson Social Chairman ican Colleges and Universities. " Mortar Board came tapping at Janelle Liebolt ' s door and Bill Epperson was justly proud. Highlights of a year with men-on-campus included the annual formal dance, March of Dimes Coterie and Homecoming Decorations which seemed to ag- gravate the wind. The Dirty Bird, as usual, was a natural gathering place for hungry Gammafis, and Pop welcomed us — pajamas, bobby pins, et al. Charlotte Davis. Larry Jo Hansen and Maurine Flanagan also changed their names before the year grew old and left the house to make homes of their own. The most asked question of the year was, " I like your room better than mine, so why don ' t we switch? You 11 be married in a couple of weeks anyway!!

Delta Gamma made its debut on the Univer- sity of Oklahoma campus in 1918. Candy, gift bestowed by a grateful guy, was the usual after-dinner treat at the Deegee house this year. Third finger, left hand, sparkled for Betty Ruth Hall, engaged to Sigma Chi Hoover Wright; Veta Jo Cullen to A 6 M (that ' s at Stillwater, you know) Bob Fenimore (of All-American fame); Pat Bynum to Sig Alph Tom Campbell; Mary Lee Sny- der to Annapolis Ed A.vtel; La Rue Haskell to Phi Delt Brenton Heath; Madelyn Tyer to Phi Gam E. A. Weaver, and Lee Dinger (the Army ' s honorary colonel — and also one of the beauty queens) to John Neilsen. Wearing a dark sweater for days — all the better to see my new frat pin — were Cecile Vauchelet who had George Davis ' Phi Gam pin; Margaret Killings- worth pinned to Phi Kap Bob Burns, and Grayce Cowell, Beb Rowlett ' s Phi Delt pin-mate. " We ' re just going steady, " at least that ' s what they say — Mary K. Pruet and Sigma Chi Benny Tipton; Ann Ezell and Rich Wharton; E. E. McCraw and Larry Webb. And there is always Elaine Hinds and Joan Looney who suddenly announced their steadyship to Sigma Alpha Epsilon ' s Bob Huckins and to Delta Tau prexy Tom Ingram.

Ar- kansas, on April the fifth. 1895. by Dr. Charles Richardson. Alice Carey. Jobelle Hol- combe, Jean Vicenhelfer and Ina Mae Boles. From that small southern university Chi Omega has ex- panded to a nation-wide fraternity, with the largest number of chapters of any national sorority. The local. Gamma Alpha Theta. became Epsilon Alpha of Chi Omega on the University of Okla- homa campus in 1919. Chi Omega started this year off with 24 pledges who have staged one of the greatest round-ups of cowhands and dudes ever held by these lasso experts. Headed for the last round-up — altar, that is — were Jeanne Ann Follett and Joe Enos. Marty Dole and Bill Whalen. Lettie Griswold and Cliff Bran- non, and Jody Harmel and Bill Roberts. The Sigma Nu brand was predominant in the ChiO corral this year. The five-armed star was branded on Jeanne Grey, courtesy of Zeb Zerboni. Over in the Beta Barn, the next-door annex.

April 17, 1893. Alpha Zeta chapter was established on the University of Okla- homa campus in 1921. The two weddings of Mavis Doughty to Robert Martin and Ollie Kilpatrick to Bill Hudgings in Sep- tember started the Alpha Xis ' year off with a bang. Since then, there have been three pinnings. one en- gagement and three weddings. At the first pep rally staged by the Ruf-Neks be- fore the OU-Army game, the Alpha Xis walked off with the prize si. -foot paddle, the first to be won by any group. But that Ruf-Nek paddle seen in the window is definitely not a group proposition — Char- lotte North " won " it from Carrol McGowan, A happy threesome seen around the campus is Donna Haggard. Jerry Guthrie, a Phi Psi pledge, and Beulah (the car). How some of the girls can feel so at home in two houses is explained by several Acacias — who are such good hosts. The grand finale came when Shirley Barbour attached Bob Lowe ' s Phi Kappa Sig pin to her quill. It didn ' t really surprise anyone but when Martha " I ' m going to have a career " Buchanan received a diamond on that well known finger no one could quite believe it. President Daphne Jenkins is now eagerly awaiting graduation so she can join her Phi Psi husband, Jack, in Korea. Not only did the pledges take the cook with them when they had their walk-out, but they swiped all the actives ' toothbrushes and mailed them to their respective homes. The frequent trips of Shirley Neil to Fayetteville. Arkansas, can easily be explained by the fact that he likes to see his pin — and the one who wears it — OFFICERS Daphne Jenkins Smith President Shirley Neill Vice-President Emma Jean Fite Secretary El.NORA ScHRiTTEH Treasurer Shirley Barbour Rush Chairman DoHis Glenna Colpitt Social Chairman often.

Its chapters number 61 with three in Canada. The big noise on Chautauqua Street this Fall was the AGD ' s moving into their newly-redecorated house. Things were off to a rousing start when the back yard caught on fire and the ground floor was accidentally flooded during the first week. Emily Patterson was displaying her sparkler from Jim Young when Mary Alice Archer came in wearing Harold " Scooter " Hines ' ATO pin. Things quieted down with classes until the pledges took their walkout the night of the DeeGee dessert, taking with them all the light bulbs, silver- ware and members ' clothes and leaving itch powder. Betty Sue Neal announced her steadyship with Football-and-Phi Delt Norman McNabb right in the midst of the pigskin season. Came the Dallas game and the entire chapter migrated South to spend the weekend at prexy Bebe Brown ' s home thereafter dubbed Alpha Gam Annex No. 2. Jackie Griffis and LaNelle Kaiser had donned PiKA and Kappa Sig pins respectively when the Home- coming celebration arrived and the girls displayed their flair for winning prizes, taking second in all three of the contests. The Christmas dance cli- maxed the pre-holiday festivities after which every- one traveled to the City to see La Verne Hanewinckel become Mrs. Smith — Chester, that is. About this time Carol Ortlip announced that her room was too large and that she would trade it for a pre-fab and Beta Frank Burk come Spring. Ev- eryone began knitting sweaters and socks for their pinmates and no exception was Jane Hopkins for Sig Ep Bill Holderness.

Dad ' s Day girl awards, and a pre- war house of beauties and brains were the inspirations for the reactivation of Xi chap- ter of Sigma Delta Tau in 1945, after having been dormant for two years. Sigma Delta Tau inspiration dates back to March 25, 1917. when Alpha chapter was founded at Cor- nell University by seven Jewish girls aided by Na- than Caleb House. " Brother Nat " is the only man to know the ritual and to wear the official jeweled torch. September 14, 1929, is remembered as the founding date for Xi chapter at the University of Oklahoma.

" And let us here add that Honey Lou Sherman wasn ' t the only one who kept up a three-point aver- OFFICERS Shiklev Sureck President Betty Levine Vice-President Elli Maveh Secretary Charlotte Horwitz Treasurer Getalea Goldfeder Social Chairman age. A number of girls came close to it and the grades for the whole sorority were something to be envied by all. However, brains weren ' t the only thing to be found in the SDT house — pardon, we don ' t mean house — let ' s just say group. Minnette Lehrman and Gloria Barnett held places in the beauty section of the yearbook and were two more reasons why the phone was always busy. Of course, the girls found that finals would either make or break you, both physically and mentally, so they decided the safest policy to follow ( for their health ' s sake) was to set out the books for study, then promptly get in a good bull session. It ' s so much less nerve-wracking. Page 338 First Row, left to right: Gloria Barnett. Charlotte Bordman, Getalea Goldfeder.

Alpha Delta Pi is looking forward to 1951 when the sorority will observe its one-hundredth anniversary. Alpha Delta Pi was founded May 15, 1851. at Wesleyan Female College, at Macon, Georgia. The sorority has sixty-six active chapters in the United States and Canada. Standards of the soror- ity, ritual, the colors of blue and white, the violet flower and the diamond-shaped pin have virtually remained unchanged since the founding so many years ago. Alpha Delta Pi has four national funds of prom- inence. The Adelphian Endowment for the perpetu- ation of the quarterly magazine; the Building and Loan Fund: the Abigail Davis Student Loan Fund; and the 1851 Memorial Fellowship Fund. Colonization of Gamma Zeta chapter was begun in the Fall of 1946 at the University of Oklahoma. Mrs. Betty Jones. National Field Counselor, and El- len Hopkins. Colonizer, formally pledged the first group on October 9, 1946. For the first semester the members of Alpha Delta Pi were forced to live in every corner of the campus because of the difficulty in obtaining a house, but immediately after finals the boys in Taylor Hall were replaced by thirty Alpha Delta Pi pledges and their gear. Now the house is being completely redecor- ated and soon will have one of the loveliest interiors on the campus. Outstanding events to be remembered this year are the dessert at the Alpha Gamma Delta house, the Phi Kappa Sig dinner and the Lambda Chi picnic. Perhaps the best remembered ( to Evelyn Walton, at least ) was the Sig Ep dessert. She met Don Snyder for the first time there and now she wears his pin.

The local chapter is associated with the Na- tional Interfraternity Council and abides by its con- stitution. " We consider the fraternity responsible for a posi- tive contribution to the primary functions of the col- leges and universities, and therefore under an obliga- tion to encourage the most complete personal devel- opment of its members — intellectual, physical, and social. " So states the creed of the Interfraternity Council and it is to such principles that the local council tries to adhere. The Couniil also seeks to recognize and meet the responsibilities which it owes not only to the University but to the hundreds of men which it represents. Each fraternity is represented by two men. One of them is elected by the members of the local chap- ter and the other is the president of the local chapter. Because the Interfraternity Council is one of the most important student organizations on the campus, and because its decisions are sometimes all important to various groups, attempts have been made at times to put political pressure on leaders of the Council from various quarters. To remedy such a situation and to make the control of the Council non-partisan, a plan was adopted in 1937 whereby the administra- tive leadership of the group was assumed by a per- son not on the Council itself. During the past year this position has been filled by Bill Matthews. He is the Chairman of the Interfraternity Council and is the Secretary of Fraternal Affairs. Through him the Council acts in cooperation with the Counselor Bill Mathkws, Chairman of Men and the administration of the University in discussion and action on such matters as pledging, rushing, pledge life, and initiation. Any violations or deviations from the rules governing fraternal or- ders at the University are considered by the Inter- fraternity Council in conjunction with University officials or national chapters of the fraternities in question. To facilitate the intramural program athletics are earnestly advocated through the medium of the Council. Each semester a loving cup is given the house which boasts the highest grade average for the past semester. This is perhaps the most coveted award to which the Greeks aspire. Healthy compe- tition in social events along with eager participation in all University sponsored functions comprises a substantial part of the Council ' s agenda. Keenly aware of the influx of erstwhile soldiers, sailors and marines into the educational institutions of the country, the council has done its utmost to be ready to help the University any way in which it can be of service. Supplementing a Secretary and a Treasurer the Council has adopted the Committee system which inquires into the various aspects of the campus life and makes suggestions and recommendations for the action of the Council, with the betterment of college life in view. These committees are appointed by the chairman and represent a cross section of the twenty- two chapters. One of the more important committees is the General Welfare committee composed of all the committee chairmen and the three officers of the Council which meets each week before the regular meeting of the Council to consider Council policy. This committee also acts as a judicial board to make recommendations for the punishment of fraternities who have violated regulations. It speaks well for the Council that the University in nearly all instances has left the discipline of member fraternities to the discretion of the Council. One of the most important projects started by the Council this past year was the groundwork that was laid for the reactivation of the South est Int " ' • ' •eter- nity Council. This is composed of the various Inter- fraternity Councils located in colleges and universi- ties in the surrounding states. It is fairly certain that the first meeting of this group will be on the Okla- homa campus next spring. Another bit of worth- while work done by the Council were the efforts made to expand within themselves the fraternity system here on the campus. Communication was carried on with all the national fraternities not repre- sented on this campus to solicitate their sponsoring a local chapter here to meet the needs of the men Page 342 ■ ' -■ 9r »jak fi First row, left to right: Hanson.

The influence exerted by this body of men is felt by every man who wears a fraternity pin. These men, as well as those not asociated or affiliated with a Greek order know and recognize that the Council has done more than any other organization to bring the success which the fraternity as a college institu- tion enjoys. The Interfraternity Council acts as an aid and a guide to freshmen and prospective fraternity men during the period of rush week. At that time, the Interfraternity Council has in its records the name and address of every boy who aspires to become a member of a fraternity. This record is kept intact throughout the period and the Council rules on rush- ing keep confusion to a minimum. This period lasts for three days and nights. The first day of Rush Week, all of those men hav- ing signed a date card meet in the large auditorium and are instructed as to their duties during the period of " Rush, " They are at that time given a card which they sign with their decision to " Pledge at will " or " Go entirely through Rush, " If they pledge at will. they may pledge any fraternity which has extended them a bid at any time during this period. If they sign to go entirely through the rush period then they must keep all dates and at the end of the rush period return to the auditorium and make their first, second and third choices on a card. This card is checked with the lists given to the Secretary of Fraternity Affairs by each fraternity. If a bid is extended by the fraternity of his choice, the rushee is sent to the room occupied by the President and Rush Chairman of his chosen fraternity and then taken to the win- dow of the room and shown to the members who have gathered outside the building. A rousing cheer is given by the members and they meet the new pledge at the entrance of the building and escort him to their fraternity house. This system is thoroughly enjoyed by both the fraternity members and the rushees. Much doubt, hope, discouragement, and elation are shown and an example of sportsmanship is exhibited throughout the procedure. This system also does away with any particular fraternity having to tell a boy that he has not re- ceived a bid. Those fellows who have not selected a fraternity or have not been selected by a fraternity are told the situation by an officer of the Interfrater- nity Council and an attempt is made to enlist the men in the formation of a local fraternity with the even- tuality of getting a charter from the national frater- nity, thus increasing the number of fraternities on the campus, which is a pressing need due to the increase in enrollment within the years following the war. The Interfraternity Council has friendly relations with the Independent Men ' s Organization, and is anxious to cooperate with them and all other organi- zations at the University of Oklahoma. The Interfraternity Council has an office in the Counselor of Men ' s offices and the Secretary of Fraternal Affairs can be contacted there during speci- fied times for information concerning any questions of fraternities or their members. Page 343 KAPPA ALPHA Kappa Alpha was founded in 1865 at Washington College, later named Washington and Lee Uni- versity. Five Confederate veterans banded together and set forth the basic ideas of the Order: " Dieu Et Le Dames " or God and the ladies. General Robert E. Lee is the guiding spirit of all those under the crimson cross of Kappa Alpha. The Fraternity was the first to be founded on Oklahoma University campus in 1905. Chapter tra- ditions started at that time are still upheld in all their strength and glory. Kappa Alpha men are known nationally for their accomplishments in all fields. Among these promin- ent leaders are Gen. Geo. C. Marshall, Gen. Geo. S. Patton, Rear Admiral Richard E. Byrd, Gov. Ellis Arnall of Georgia. Clark Clifford who is special advisor to Pres. Truman, and J. Edgar Hoover. Outstanding alumni of Beta Eta include: Rep. Carl Albert, Justice Fletcher Riley. Eugene Gumm (secretary of State Banking Association) and the late Drs. Tom and Dick Lowery, Dean and Profes- sor of Obstetrics, respectively, at the University ' s School of Medicine.

The original chapter was formed by five friends who banded together be- cause of common interests and ideals and the De- cember 10th Founders ' Day date has become a high- light on the fraternity social calendar. Since the origin of the first chapter, over 45,000 American and Canadian college men have been in- itiated into the fraternity. At the present time there are 117 active chapters in the United States and Canada. Among the outstanding members of Kappa Sigma ' s alumni are Lowell Thomas, Warren Austin, C. R. Smith, Dave " Boo " Ferriss, Edward Murrow and Hoagy Carmichael. Oklahoma ' s Gamma Kappa chapter of Kappa Sigma was founded on December 7, 1906, with 12 charter members. The post-war chapter has 40 members and 65 pledges. Two of the chapter ' s members — Eddie Davis and Jack Mitchell — were main cogs in the T-formation offense of the 1946 Sooner football squad that started the season against powerful Army and ended with a bowl triumph over North Carolina State. Dick Mitchell was a member of the swimming team and Roland Champion held down a berth on the tennis squad. C. D. " Red " Deal was back on the campus, performing his usual job at third base on the Sooner nine. During the year many of the older members gave up their freedom to trod down the marital path, but their absence still left the boys with an acute hous- ing shortage. This, of course, brought on the age- old cry, " Let ' s build a new house! " And for the umpteenth time, the fraternity house of the future OFFICERS First Semester Joe Meacham . . Frederick Jay . .

As always, the house had its fair share of charac- ters. John " Smoe " Wantland and Rick Jay formed a Bird Dog Club which requires members to have a 3.0 grade average and have at least one date during the four-year college tenure. Toward the end of the semester, the annual Rose Formal drew " ohs " and " ahs " from a few members and most of the dates. Mother Ellis, by the year ' s end, had acquired about 110 " boys " for her list of admirers. And naturally Ben Thompson was still throwing water on innocents who ventured on the front porch.

This fraternity, con- ceived and made possible by Knox and his seven as- sociates, was born in a private dormitory on the cam- pus of Miami University, Oxford, Ohio. This found- ing was the first of the three fraternities known as the " Miami Triad. " Since its founding. Beta ' s ever- growing strength and soundness has progressed through five-score and a semi-decade of years. Nineteen hundred and seven witnessed the intro- duction of Beta Theta Pi on the O. U. campus. The founding of the Gamma Phi chapter is due to the energy and foresight of the late Dean Felgar, aided by E. R. Adams. Innovating constructively, Beta Theta Pi has stricken many foolish pre-war pledge hardships from the fraternal procedure. Stressing scholarship and maturity, the Gamma Phi chapter moves with propriety into a new and progressive Greek era. More noticeable is the serious aspect, but not at the expense of college happiness. Lodged in a Beta ' s memorabilia is the Barn Dance with its entailing gayety; Wooglin ' s grins and con- sternations: the sobriety of the Senior Dinner; the conservative and character building pledge courts; the annual Christmas party; mischievous pledge re- taliations; Happy Birthday! — and the ensuing shower; E. J. ' s ties; friendly rivalry at the annual K .A. football contest; the rush for the card table and the ensuing scuffle of kibitzers for positions. These and many other inimitable recollections drop thought provokingly in this year ' s trunk of hellenic archives. Chief of the Beta Basilica is our pride and joy from Clinton, Mrs. Gilliland.

The Serpent reared its head and charmed the forty-two shaqDest men who came through rush, plus Bill " Nose " McWilliams. The pledge class includes such campus celebrities as Fuzzy Carter and Charlie Dresser, golf greats; Bill Kessler, the number one contender for the tennis team; Jimmy Owens and George Brewer, varsity football bruisers; Hi Roberts Laird, the one man entertainment committee; and the charming " Idiot J " Brown from Shawnee. The pledge class, pooling their ideas and dollars, staged the " daddy " of all walkouts in November. Among the brains in the Sigma Nu house are Roger Swan and Al Carlson. Al, a transfer from Iowa, is really brought down with the Engine School — he made only a 2.9 while taking 21 hours. Per- haps the spare time spent in building and transmitting from a " ham " radio station cost him the one-tenth of a point. John " Drop Shot " Benham. refusing to play bas- ketball despite Bruce Drake ' s frantic pleas, has turned to the game of snooker, a sport at which he is equally adept. Joe McMahon was lead-off man in the limb-breaking department with Freddie Watson and Ted Reeds fighting it out for second. At 4 a.m. one Sunday morning, Carl Mills, government stu- dent, tried to improve our foreign relations by plac- ing a call to one Andrei Gromyko. collect to the Russian Embassy. Although concentrating on scholarship, Sigma Nu did find time for a few social activities.

Okla- homa Kappa was established on this campus in 1909. A leader among national fraternities, SAE was the first to establish a leadership school for the training of its officers. The idea for this training school was conceived by John Mosely, an alumnus of this chap- ter, and president of the University of Nevada. Members and pledges of Sigma Alpha Everybody are more than happy in their new home, rebuilt after an attempt to burn Norman Reynolds out of school. " Big Red ' survived, and after ten years is still giv- ing Pifis, Kappa, ChiOs and Thetas a thrill. An attraction over Sig Alph way is Boston Smith, transcendent Greek from Stanford, where he was a member of a local called DKE. Henry " Nugget " Montgomery, SAE ' s pot of gold, has had at least three dates in the past year — two with Hunter " I- like-to-date-fraternity-presidents " MacMurray, and the other with an unknown lovely from the taproom in O. C. Tom Flesher is about to give up bachelorhood for a better thing — namely Kappa Ann Noftsger. Hol- lywood-bound Bill " Skippy ' Beam has been momen- tarily stalled in his astronomical rise to stardom by taffy blonde Pifi Marcy Lain, who wanted him to stick around.

Jack Barry was mustard man; Bill Laws had charge of to- matoes and onions: Wayne Hall made a perfect de- livery man. It seems that the profit after two months was a little short, consequently the ham man retired. Highlights of the year included Bill Clark spilling apple pie in some sweet young thing ' s lap. the Inter- national Ball, and that memorable Sigalf-Figam foot- ball game which resulted in victory for the Sigalfs.

It was the nineteenth college fraternity to be formed. Sigma Chi. Beta Theta Pi and Phi Delta Theta make up the now famous Miami Triad. On March 12. 1912, Sigma Chi presented a char- ter to the petitioning Oklahoma University local fraternity. Lambda Chi. Beta Kappa was the 85th chapter to be given a charter by Sigma Chi. There were 26 charter members in Beta Kappa chapter. Now there are over 800 Sigma Chis in Oklahoma City alone. The fall of 1946 finds Beta Kappa chapter bigger and better than at anytime in its history. With 79 pledges, Beta Kappa has the largest pledge class on the OU campus. It seems that these boys can accomplish just about anything they wish. As of January 31, 1947, the Sigs rate third in the over all intramural program. Earlier in the school year they won second place in the football competition. With such players as Hoover " Magnum City " Wright. Charlie Colpitt, Jim Eagleton, Gene " Trig- ger " Womble, and Jack Freese, how could the team go wrong? And cupid found time to make it around to a good many Sigma Chis. Andy Riddle and Martha Anne Williams (1946 Sweetheart of Sigma Chi) exchanged vows along with Leonard Williams and Aggie Edwards in a double ceremony. Pete Bates seems to have taken charge of Lil Krepps, DO, and Jerry Losee came to the conclusion that Kappa Dorothy Inglis was the only one for him.

Among the recent improvements of Beta Kappa chapter is the newly constructed Schaeffer Memorial which consists of a stone porch and terrace im- mediately behind the house. This memorial has already proven its worth in creating a wholesome atmosphere for picnics and parties of all kinds. The Sigma Chis will be forever grateful to Mr. Harry Schaeffer for this splendid memorial gift. With their noses into almost every activity on campus, 1947 promises to be an even bigger and better year for the Sigs of Beta Kappa chapter.

The origin of Phi Gamma Delta in Ok- lahoma is closely associated with the leaders of Phi Kappa Pi. which was founded on the campus in 1913. Under the leadership of such men as Judge Fred B. Owen and Senator Josh Lee, the chapter was granted a charter as Nu Omega of Phi Gamma Delta on March -4, 1917 with such outstanding men as Mike Monroney soon coming from its ranks. This year. President Ed Moler and the boys on Boyd Street retouched the Fiji white columned home, pledged 37 men, and reared a fantastic Fiji- type tepee for the first place in Homecoming dec- orations. Presiding over the fun and frolic is well known and well liked Mrs. J. B. A. Robertson, Fiji housemother and President of the Campus Host- ess club. Mrs. Dwight Aultman, who was with the Fijis for twelve years before the war, is now living in Detroit, Michigan. Sidney Upsher ' s wandering Fiji pin found a new keeper in Pat Estill — for the time being at least. Meanwhile she won ' t speak to Burton Wood for bumping Sidney out of his old room. John " Polar Bear " Griffin ' s strangling monopoly on the house coffee supply was loosened by Dick " Cain ' s " Clements. The aging Osage Moler is now the house perennial bachelor as Willie Clark ' s hometown queen, Marcena PfeifFer, made off with another Fiji pin. Gene " You ' re Glad You Met Me " Lewis is frankly worried because only 99 per cent of the campus women are calling him nightly. OFFICERS First Scmcitcr Ed Moler President . . Jack Hoopes .

Bus West used most of the first semester in rounding up five broken down ex-lettermen ( Paul Heap included) for the game with the O.U. " B " basketball team. . . . " He still dances better off the court " (Bruce Drake). Jack Hoopes already has plenty of ideas about running the Muskogee Phoe- nix, but so did Nibs! And Bill Holloway, as al- ways, has the unconditional vote of every member of the Chapter.

It has always strived to maintain leadership in scholar- ship, athletics and all activities of college life. This chapter, Oklahoma Alpha, chartered in 1918, has maintained a standard of scholarship on a par with all other organizations. The chapter has always been among the top contenders in university sports and members have been associated with every hon- orary organization on the campus. Phi Delta Theta has in the past, and will continue in the fu- ture, to be active in every phase of college life. With the start of a new peacetime year, the Phi Delts were back in full swing. Bill " Social Kid " Yinger set some sort of a new record by being seen with practically every beautiful girl on the campus and finally wound up losing his pin to Barbara Stevens, ChiO from Oklahoma A M. Bob " Ger- onimo " Cairns, that tall, dark, handsome reason, finally settled down and pinned Pifi Barbara Boyce. Grady " Fats ' Harris pinned Tridelt A. J. Hunter and Ma.x " Milo Jr. " gave his sword and shield to Kappa Margie Adams. Don Buelow pinned Theta Susie Lovall, but Tom Ed Cox put a ring on Susie ' s sister Ethel Schrader. Among the ones who fell by the wayside by go- ing steady were Benny Singleton and Kappa Rhoda James and Beb Rowlett, who severed other campus relations for DG Grayce Cowell. Herb " Milo Sr. " Smith has been seen once or twice with a woman, as has Keith " Bluey " Fowler formerly of the IKKF club.

They are at present one of the top contenders for the Intramural trophy; have given one of the best house parties on the campus in the form of a barn dance; have several members on various honorary organizations; and were up toward the top for the scholarship cup. In the field of sports, Gerald " Two Points " Tucker, Jimmy Mitchell and Sonny Pryor rounded up the gang for the basketball games. With Nor- man McNabb on the football squad and Herb Smith, Bob Cairns, Jimmy Mitchell and Ed Boecking on the baseball team, the Phi Delts had their name in the limelight all year round.

As written in the preamble of the fraternity ' s constitution, the object of the founders was " to form a close social and fraternal union: to foster and maintain among its sons a spirit of fraternity, a spirit of mutual moral aid and support: to instill and maintain in the hearts of its sons love for and loyalty to the Alma Mater and its ideals; to inculcate among its sons such ideals as will result in actions worthy of the highest precepts of true manhood, democracy and humanity " . There are at the present time fifty active chapters in the national organization with a membership of approximately ten thousand. The fraternity has an effective endowment fund plan, the purpose of which is to establish scholar- ships and provide financial assistance to members and to chapters. Under a program of purposeful endeavor the chapters and members are urged to participate in all worthy civic and community ac- tivities. Eight members of the Alpha Club of the Uni- versity of Oklahoma were initiated into Sigma Alpha Mu on May 22. 1920, as the Sigma Alpha Chapter. This year the Sig Alpha chapter of S.A.M. is full of talent and ambition. The fraternity boasts two three point men, John Herzfeld and Bob Schrei- ber. Chet Cowen was given the unique distinction of being elected the " Ugliest Guy on Campus. " Chet also has the exclusive patent on the one and only " Chetmobile " , which consists of a Buick grill. Ford body. Dodge motor, and cut down top. Its OFFICERS Bf.n Frank President Howard Schaer Secretary Robert Joels .... .... Treasurer Chester Cowan Social Chairman Harold Poplinger, John Winter . . .

Six young Virginians bound to- gether in a comradeship through a desire to perpet- uate the brotherly feeling that existed among them. Those six founders made the fraternity what it is today and now over 25,000 men have become brothers of the same oath and bond. The Beta Omicron chapter was established at the University of Oklahoma in 1920 by eighteen men who were members of a local fraternity which had been formed for the purpose of affiliating with Pi Kappa Alpha. Lynn Riggs, famous playwright, and Joseph Benton, former star of the Metropolitan Opera, are only two of its members who have achieved prominence. The Pi KA ' s opened up the old stand with a bang as most of the old members at last made the coveted transition from soldier to student ( to use the word loosely). George Jennings, who may have been in school with the father of some of the current freshmen, emerged as first semester president and almost lost the rest of his hair trying to get the boys to stop telling war stories long enough to listen to him. Another relic of the past is the one and only Rip Harris who climaxed a tumultuous semester by hanging his pin on Theta Mary Ann Nesbitt. Jim Goodwin stars in the romantic department for pinning Jackie Griffis of the Alphagam clan. Jim may be currently recognized by the large ring in his nose. Howard Moyer surprised no one by marrying Danny Miller, but everyone was astounded when Clarence Peard started introducing Kappa Liz Jones as " Mrs. " Charlie Wright established his bird dogs in the OFFICERS First Semester George E.

Guss Babb started the year as Pledge Master with visions of employing the methods of Dachau on his charges, but when last seen he was seeking sanctuary in the radio station while 30 irate pledges howled for his scalp. One of the more successful boys was Bill " Fleet " Parks, who seems to be number one with Theta Linda Colbert — and one of the least successful was Lew Bond, who is about number 10 with a lot of people.

A group of men nursed other students through illness and the close associations among these men, forming bonds of unity, started the fra- ternity. Oklahoma Alpha was established at OU in 1920. Dan Cupid was a sure marksman this year at the Phi Psi house. The brothers fell thick and fast when the little cherub aimed his deadly arrows at them. First to take the fatal step was Vernon Springer who succumbed to the charms of Kappa Jackie Bramlett. Jack Smith found civilian life too trying and decided that the army was for him, but he stayed long enough to exchange vows with Alpha Xi prexy Daphne Jenkins. Avery Smith came all the way from Indianapolis, looking the OU crop over and married a girl from Marshall, Mo. Bill Coyle, after dating Katie Cory since kindergarten, finally made the grade and married the girl. Phyliss Ann McCue captured George Anderson ' s heart and the two went back home to Kansas to plan a May wedding. Ted Prater and Gamma Phi President Ava Jeanne HoUingsworth also plan a spring wed- ding, while Tridelt Kathryn Fisher and Bruce Scott say now that they will wait till summer. It seems that the Phi Psis are tired of their old title of the " gay bachelors of Elm Street " ! Currently on the steady list are Mack Barbour and Pifi Harriet Hardeman.

The main objective was to unite fraternally the young men of the South with those of the North and to foster a Christian brotherhood dedicated to achiev- ing and cherishing permanent peace. Delta Kappa chapter was established in 1921 and is one of 100 chapters in the United States. Outstanding alumni now on the campus include Dr. Norman Boke. Bruce Drake. Dr. Nels M. Bailkey, Major Richard Reed, Capt. Maurice C. Foster and W. M. Morgan. The Jenkins Avenue Taus bounced back after the war years ready for anything, including a small portion of knowledge. Gammon Jarrell. Chief Tau. spent the entire first semester trying to teach the lads to carry a tune, but the whiskey tenors and bathtub baritones won out and the project was abandoned. Tommy Kendricks. exhausted after eluding ChiO D. J. Falls in a mad chase, devoted his time as social chairman to getting the pledges out of the " Bird " and getting them dates with some of the girls. Charlie Chesterman and Tom Dikeman ignored the warnings of the ones " Who knew " and marched to the altar with Mary Allen Hawk and Virginia Turnbull, respectively. Everybody tried to give away his pin, but among the more successful were " O City " Brown, Bill Robertson, John Skavlen, Butch Chancellor, Scooter Hines and Cliff Branan.

Some of the pre-war members spent a good deal of their valuable time in indoctrinating many of the sweet young things on the campus in the art of hav- ing a party . , . ATO style. The chief social function of the year was the annual " Bowery Brawl " which was a howling success in spite of the chaperons.

The presence of these old timers in such number, together with ten pledges of the previous spring and the largest fall pledge class in the chapter ' s history, gave high promise, since ful- filled, that this was to be one of the most successful Delt years since the chapter was installed in 1922. It was in that year that success greeted the efforts of twelve ambitious young men at Oklahoma Uni- versity to achieve affiliation with the national fra- ternity, Delta Tau Delta. The chapter, established two years previously as a local fraternal order, by its outstanding record soon won favorable con- sideration from the fraternity of its choice. Delta Tau Delta was founded nationally at Beth- any College, Virginia, by Richard H. Alfred, Eu- gene Tarr, John C. Johnson and Alexander C. Earle, with the assistance of four others. An informal organization was effective in the spring of 1858, but the adoption of the motto, badge and constitution did not occur until early in 1859. Now there is a total of seventy-seven chapters in the United States. Delta Alpha chapter was established here on the OU campus in 1922. The fall months found the touch football squad holding the spotlight of chapter attention as it swept undefeated through its schedule to capture the in- tramural championship. In basketball, too, Delt ath- letes enjoyed a most successful season, being all victorious in their league. As always, Delts this year gave much attention to the business of achieving sweet harmony in song. Their caroling at Christmas time and the melodious spring serenade fully demonstrated why, in six of the OFFICERS First Semester Joe Enos President . George McDonnold .

The best remembered social events of the year were the traditional " Delt Dive " party held at the " Shelter " in February and the Fall Formal Dance. Decoration for the dance called for the first false ceiling seen in the Union Ballroom since before the war. Its erection very nearly exhausted the chap- ter ' s reserves of patience and energy. This has been the nineteenth successive year that Mother Allen has served as hostess of the Delta Alpha Chapter, making the rich contribution of her graciousness, wise counsel, and abiding interest to the fraternity and its men.

The national organ- ization was formed in 1850 at the University of Pennsylvania and has experienced a gradual but sturdy growth since that time. It now consists of over forty chapters located principally in the South. Such distinguished men as Claude A. Swanson and Maxfield Parrish have graduated from its fold. Smarting under the acid wit of their Sinatra- styled prexy, Sam Rose, the Skull house gang strug- gled manfully through the year. No sooner could they recover from his vicious diatribes than they were needled by Phil " I done good " Morgan ' s grammar lessons. Bob White ' s ten-gallon laugh finally drove those with weaker nerves to the East campus. Poor Bob was in constant hot water wor- rying about his Chio, especially after his brothers were kind enough to tell her about his trip to Fort Worth with the DG. . . . When the IFC announced the Phi Kap ' s as win- ners of last spring ' s scholarship cup, they were ruined socially, until HufF Walker and Phil Morgan did some quick reorganizing. They ran headlong into " Chip " Ryan ' s violently serious Temperance Union, but finally effected a favorable compromise. And for the first time in thirteen years " Bird Dog Bur- ton " (at last a Junior) failed to get his annual Christmas present ... a funnel! Gordon Dempsey, second semester prexy, joined and ran almost everything, but it didn ' t impress many coeds. Bob Burns insisted he was still in his teens, but that fooled no one but DG ' s Margaret Killingsworth. A good 90 per cent of the boys married Gamma Phi ' s and moved to Sooner City, but Jim Osgood dated them all and stayed single. OFFICERS First Semester Sam Rose President DuANE Crill . .

Witbeck Page 373 DELTA UPSILDN Delta Upsilon, one of the oldest national fraternities, is the oldest national fraternity on the campus. It was founded at Williams College in 1834 by a group of young men of whom James A. Garfield was a member. The Williams chapter was formed in protest against certain abuses that had grown out of the fraternity system of that day. Shortly after the formation of that first chapter, like-minded young men founded similar groups at Amherst, Hamilton and Middlebury colleges. In the early 1840 ' s these groups joined together to form what is now Delta Upsilon fraternity. Its four e.xpress purposes are the promotion of friendship, the development of character, the diffusion of liberal culture and the ad- vancement of knowledge. The 64 chapters are lo- cated from coast to coast in both the United States and Canada. The local chapter of Delta Upsilon began as Delta Pi, and for nine consecutive semesters it maintained the highest scholarship average among campus fra- ternities. In 1927 it was made a part of the Delta Upsilon fraternity. Life began anew in the fraternity this fall with very modern interior decoration for the house and returning members carrying on its traditions. Work- ing at a frenzied pace, the house was put in order with one hand while extending the other in greeting to the rushees. With a new pledge class in the house, the DU ' s settled down to their three D ' s — dates, dinner parties and dances. Highlight of the year was the triple weekend — Alumni party in O.

The house was located conveniently for several of the boys as Bill Jamar and Phyl Kramer will verify from strolling past the Tridelt house numerous times each day. The Theta house was only a stone ' s throw for Bill Galbraith, while Curt van Weedle started using the side door of the Kappa house. Social chair- man Frank Gillespie had a hard time making up his mind between Tulsa and Tyler, but in Bobby Atta- way s heart, Tulsa reigned supreme all along. Joe " Influence " Boyd held numerous lengthy conversa- tions with numerous girls all over the " ever-lovin ' " campus, but Jane Calloway was the only one who got roses. Page 374 coo Q.

Membership is no longer limited to lawyers and the national organization has ex- panded to 34 active chapters. The present Okla- homa chapter was established in 1938 and started its career by winning the National Scholarship tro- phy. Close adherence to the high standards of scholarship and leadership has won for the Okla- homa chapter an envied place in the national organ- ization. The cheerful smile and happy disposition of Mother Quigley has, in her first year at Delta Chi, won a permanent place in the hearts of all who know her. The outstanding social event of the modern era was the weiner roast sans weiners which caused pledge master Tom Lowery to instruct Tom Arnold as to the ingredients constituting an acceptable hot dog. Luke " The Duke " Wilkerson, Phi Delta Phi and Senior Lawyer, has avowed to prosecute the varmint who took the little white chicken that laid an egg in the garage every morning for Lukey ' s breakfast. Wedding bells took heavy toll during the holiday season. Sam Gray and Patty Paul exchanged vows; Charles Goodwin and Wanda Magruder, Alpha Xi, decided they could do a lot more studying together, and Dennis Bales uttered ' til death do us part with Billie Hargrove. Jerry Young saw the light several times, but after a certain trip to Te.xas. Bobby Faulkner decided he didn ' t even want to see it.

Visiting hours had been arranged so the girls could bring flowers. The most disheartening blow of the year was re- ceived by J. B. " Judge " Sanders when he found out that his date of the evening started to kindergarten the same year that " The Judge " entered OU.

Its founders, a group of students of various faiths, created the organization with the aim of elimination of prejudism in American universities. The campus chapter was organized as Sigma Beta Tau in 1921 and a year later affiliated with Phi Beta Delta. When Phi Beta Delta amalgamated with Pi Lambda Phi in 19-10. the local chapter became Iota of Pi Lambda Phi. September saw the long awaited opening of the Pilam house with a new extension and 26 pledges. Howard Goldman, pre-med from Dallas, was elected the first president since the closing of the doors in the spring of 1943. Under his leadership, plans were completed for a full program of activities to be highlighted by " Homecoming " in November. Returning members included many who had been leaders in both fraternity and campus activities be- fore the war. Ralph Herzmark, member of Pi Tau Sigma, Tau Omega, and Scabbard and Blade, was promptly elected president of Tau Beta Pi, and Herb Krigel presided over the local A.V.C. chapter. An abundance of social activities at 704 Lindsay was as- sured with the return of such " Casanovas out of Khaki " as Stan Rubenstein and Richard Beren. The pledges seemed exceptionally well represented in this department with President Sid Gasser, Alan " A Murray " Golden and George Lieberman as examples.

Since its birth the fraternity has grown into one of the largest in the nation, with over 27,000 members. Lo- cally Sigma Phi Epsilon is young. Organized June 1, 1946, by 15 charter members, the Oklahoma Beta chapter has 30 active members at the present time. On the campus the Sig Eps have had their share of steadies, pinnings and prospective marriages.

She plans " Fly Boy ' s " operations from take off till landing. Phone calls to and from the house on Boulevard are impossible between 11:00 and 12:00 p.m. because Jack Nobles and Alpha Xi Gloria Hamilton keep the lines burning. Dale Haas and Todd Shirley have been called the " Men of Frustration " and it is believed by those who know that certain lassies from the Chio house and Robertson Hall are to blame for this title. Feeley is having his troubles, too, and he would be oh, so happy if Mona Mae Chapman of the Alpha Gam clan would take off that strange pin.

The present strength is 115 active chapters in 30 states, Canada, and District of Co- lumbia, with a living membership role of more than 35,000. National Headquarters are located in In- dianapolis, Indiana, with a full time Administration Secretary, adequate staff and four Traveling Secre- taries employed solely for chapter service. The Headquarters building and seventy chapter houses are owned at a value of over $2,500,000. The fra- ternity magazine. Cross and Crescent, is issued six times annually to all members and pledges. The national fraternity is directed by the Grand High Zeta composed of seven alumni, one of whom is a resident of Oklahoma — Colman Nolen, an attorney in Okemah. The Roll of Members contains many outstanding men in all fields. Some of these are: President H. Truman; Gen. James Doolittle; Sam Houston Jones, Past Gov. of Louisiana; Edwin Markham, poet (au- thor of " Man With the Hoe " ); Jean Hersholt, actor. And from Oklahoma: Judge Alfred Murray; Dr. Onis Hazel, University Medical School; Judge A. P. Van Meter; Chester Gould, cartoonist (creator of Dick Tracy); and Dr. C. Q. Smith, President of Oklahoma City University. Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity was installed at the University of Oklahoma, October 9. 1926 (Gamma Rho Chapter) from the membership of two local so- cieties (Phi Delta Chi and Sigma Phi). The chap- ter was on inactive status until Spring of 1946, when several members returned from service and reacti- vated the fraternity. K P OFFICERS Lester Lloyd, Jr President Ge orge B.

Collums Director of Housing The HOUSING PROGRAM Housing was a real and per- sonal problem to most of the students at the University of Oklahoma this year. With the war ' s end. thousands of veter- ans, former students and high school graduates flocked to the campuses of the nation ' s col- leges in unprecedented num- bers. At the University of Oklahoma, enrollment soared to an unprecedented 10.247. As was the condition at most schools, housing was a critical problem, but unlike most of its sister institutions, OU was in a position to utilize stop-gap measures and make adequate plans for the future. Dormitories were acquired by the University, pre-fabricated houses were erected, trailer camps were set up, two Navy bases were converted to dormitory, apartment and barrack use. The University, formerly crowded to the seams with 6,000 students, made tremendous strides in caring for its overflowing post-war University of 10,000. To handle this problem, the University established the Housing of- fice, with Garner G, Collums as director. Fresh from the Army and a man-sized job as billeting officer of the Stevens Hotel in Chicago. Mr. Collums, backed by a wealth of institutional management experience, rolled up his sleeves and went to work. A native of Oklahoma. Mr. Collums is a graduate of the University, a veteran of both World War I and World War II, which included two tours of foreign service in the China-Burma-India theater with the Hth Army Air Force, and president of the Cleveland County Chapter of the Reserve Officers ' Association. To assist him in the management of his growing program, Mr. Col- lums picked two able assistants: Mr. L. L. Adams. Supervisor of Hous- ing, and Mrs. Dorothy Defenbaugh. Supervisor of Food Service. Mr. Adams has been connected with the Housing Department from the be- ginning when it was organized to house and feed Army and Navy trainees during the war, Mrs. Defenbaugh has been with the Housing Department for several years in the capacity of dietitian and super- visor of food service for University-operated dining rooms. The particularly fortunate position of the University of Oklahoma due to availability of the two great naval bases has made it possible for the conversion of various building units into different types of living accommodations. This is reflected in the reports of veteran enrollment which shows that the University is high in comparison with other col- leges in the percentage of married students in attendance. Thirty- seven per cent of the sixty-two hundred veterans enrolled are married and of this group thirty-five per cent have children. The Housing De- partment, through its courteous and efficient office staff, has been able to continuously improve student housing conditions by giving special- ized service to the individual student ' s needs. Jefferson House Page 386 L. L. Adams Dorothy Defenbaugh As instructional and classroom facilities have been extended to the North and South campuses, the Housing Department has met the situa- tion by the extension of food service facilities in the establishment of cafeterias, coffee shops and fountains to accommodate students in at- tendance of classes on these campuses. New accommodations for social and recreational events for students housed on the two campuses have been provided in former officers ' clubs and lounges. The operation of these facilities has been adminis- tered by the Housing Department. As the school year ends, more than 4,000 students, faculty members and their families live in University-operated housing. Under the supervision of the Housing Office are: Whitehand Hall, Franklin House, Jefferson House, Terry House, Hester Hall, Robertson Hall, Woodrow Wilson Center, 30 units in Trailer City, 500 double and single pre-fabricated houses in Sooner City, dormitory accommodations for 2,000 single students, and 1,200 apartments for married students. In addition, there are adequate and almost unlimited barrack facilities for men students. The acquisition of the facilities of the two Norman naval bases and the cooperation of the Federal Public Housing Admin- istration have made it possible for the University of Oklahoma to offer adequate accommodations to all those who wish to enroll within the limits of class rooms and faculty. But housing alone is not all of the responsibility of the Housing Of- fice. To feed its students and faculty tenants on the two campuses, the Housing Office operates seven dining rooms or cafeterias, and two fountains and coffee shops. A commissary, complete with butcher shop, supplies the various units. The operation also includes playgrounds, nurseries, laundry, grocery stores, and recreational facilities. The func- tion of the Housing Office is no longer merely that of finding a room for single students. Prospects for housing for the school year 1947- 1948 are very bright and it is very probable that more than five thou- sand people will live in University-controlled housing under the opera- tion and management of the Housing Department of the University. It is a full scale operation that has a tremendous daily effect on the lives of many of the ambitious, enterprising young students who make up an integral part of this great University. Worcester Housk Mess Hall Terry House Page 387 HESTER HALL Hester Hall, popular freshman dormitory, just off the main campus, also housed a number of upper- classmen this year due to housing difficulties. As a matter of interest, it may be said that the dormitory was named in honor of Mrs. Elizabeth Hester, one of Oklahoma s first women missionary workers. Mrs. Nora V. Weils, business director, has pre- sided over the hall for twelve years. Miss Mary Ricker, resident counselor, has direct interest in the moral, physical, social, practical development of each girl in the dormitory. Life in the dormitory is certainly dynamic and def- initely not static. Many innovations have come about from combined suggestions of Miss Ricker, Mrs. Wells, the eight graduate counselors, Ann No- votny, Lee Adams, D. J. Grundman, Weeta Shearer, Wanda Tabor, Virginia Turnbull, Betty Bob Anger- man, and Mary Kay Seaboch, and last but not least, the residents of the hall. The most popular thing introduced this year, perhaps, was the dance hour which occurred weekly immediately following the evening meal. Dances, both formal and informal, met with en- thusiastic response in the dormitory. The first for- mal dance was held before Christmas in the dining room connecting Robertson and Hester; the spring formal was held in the Union Ballroom to the music of the Ramblers. To mention a few more of the many activities, there were intramurals, the annual March of Dimes, Sun- day coffee hours, faculty receptions, open houses, floor picnics; these combined to furnish ample mate- rial for the over-abundant enthusiasm, interest and energy of each resident. A ping pong table was added to the equipment in the hall this year which gave rise to some wholesome OFFICERS Fall Semester D. J. Evans . . , Freda Cline Helbn Dunn . . Jeannine Fowler . President .

Various guest speakers gave opportunity for the intellectual development of the girls in the dormitory. Such varied topics as etiquette, marriage. WSSF, differences in religious beliefs, hair styling, clothes styling were subjects for discussion. Competent speakers for each subject concentrated on audience participation, a fact which led to a great deal of interest. Looking backward, it may be said that Hester Hall had a most enjoyable and profitable year. With our first year in the University behind us, we look forward to the next three years with the past fond memories of university life and anticipation for the future.

The hall was named in honor of one of Okla- homa ' s first Congresswomen, Miss Alice Robertson. Miss Mary Ricker. resident counselor, aided the girls in forming many new organizations among themselves and introduced original ideas for enter- tainment and extra-curricular activities. Among many of these were: the personal development com- mittee sponsoring hair style improvement, cosmetic aid and style shows, the activities committee, whose function was to interest more girls in the YWCA and Choral Club and other campus groups, the music committee which sponsored serenades, and Christ- mas caroling and programs for special occasions. Helping Miss Ricker this year were eight grad- uate counselors: Ann Novotny. Lee Adams, D. J. Grundman, Weeta Shearer. Wanda Tabor, Vir- ginia Turnbull, Betty Bob Angerman, and Mary Kay Seaboch. Each counselor was responsible for the girls on her floor, helping them with every kind of emergency that arose or just being there as a listening post. Numerous big problems, such as professors, boy friends, dresses, table manners, the correct nail polish, ad infinitum, were regularly placed before them for thrashing, and a solution of some sort was always found to aid the perplexed freshman. One of the most beneficial innovations this year was the formal table service during the evening meal and on Sunday, Most residents readily agreed (even the most socially poised) that there was much to be gained by such training. Diet tables to reduce the fatter members and fatten the leaner members were quite popular — a happy medium being the watchword. OFFICERS Fall Semester D. J. Evans . . Fri;da Cline Hklen Dunn . .

Despite the freezing temperature, patriotic freshmen decked themselves in shorts and sweaters and posed glam- orously on top of a red and white float, honoring O. U. and the residential halls. At the opening of each semester, the halls spon- sored an open house, and some of the most popular activities were the exchange dinners given in cooper- ation with the men from Woodrow Wilson Center, faculty dinners, birthday dinners for individual girls, and weekly dance hours immediately following the dinner hour. Altogether, it may be said this year at Robertson Hall has been an extremely busy one with great strides forward being made. Page 390 First Row. left to right: Nona Alpard. June Black- well.

A son, " Officers ' Club, " was born to Max West- heimer Field, two miles north of the campus of the University of Oklahoma, when the admirals decided to train shipmen in Norman. The BOQ he came to be known when the shipmen bowed out and tanned legs and sun bleached hair came to play a 9-months ' stand. One hundred upperclass women shook the mascu- linity of its pool room, bar and ballroom. BOQ was in complete confusion, but he soon found out that even if his buddies were gone and he must hence- forth be dry, there wasn ' t the slightest thing bad about living with a hundred women. He watched dances every Friday night, slightly amazed at the loud socks and ties, but just as much the host as in the days of pinks and pink ladies. He watched Janice LeVick and her chorines for two engineers ' shows. Never had he seen so many lovely legs all at one time. White Christmas came and the women bachelors decorated BOQ like never before. He glittered and sparkled and music fairly burst from his walls. He thought to himself: " Too bad about those barracks across the tracks. I reckon you have to be what you ' re born for, though. But, oh brother, what a life they ' ve missed! The Navy was never like this! " The girls living in BOQ are: Elwina Allred, Jean- ette Gayle Bainum.

Sister Mary Re- dempta, of Our Lady of the Lake College, is the present Hostess. Phyllis Dale served as president for the fall semester of ■46- ' 47. The girls of New- man Hall have won three honor cups for making the highest scholastic record of the halls of its size. Es- tablished in February of 1926, Newman Hall is open to women students without distinction as to their religious affiliation. " And out of the darkness came the light " — Turn the words around so that they will read " Out of the light came the darkness, " and you will have a clear picture of what happens when a certain Phi Gam comes to see Jeanet Dale. Just because secrets are so much fun to tell — it took him at least a week to get the tar off his hands, which goes to show that little boys should not make a habit of removing light bulbs. Tuva Anne Vaughn and her special Bob were not far away from the scene of the crime, and the story goes that a good time was had by all. Have you been missing Cupid lately? Well, if you have, don ' t be worried. He came over here to try a few of his immortal tricks, and he is arranging matters quite effectively. Mary Jon Johnson is try- ing to figure out a way to prove that women can very successfully have marriage and careers at the same time. Hugh seems to be encouraging her to emphasize the former. Genevieve Dale is getting more secretive about the letters she gets from her " one and only " who is far, far away. Marcheta Ledbetter loves " Willy " more every day, and to be specific, we can ' t figure out whether she was beating on the pipes with a tennis racquet because the girls upstairs were laughing or whether love just does funny things. The impromptu caroling before Christmas caused OFFICERS Marie Unzner President Mary Helen O ' Neill Vice-President Dorothy Fried Secretary loLA DiLBECK Treasurer quite a disturbance. Norma Jean Wode, Alice Clegg and Helen O ' Neill gave the signal on third floor, and Lee Etta Cowan and Eulalia Steedman made certain that everyone on second floor was out of bed for the event. The climax was the song session around the tree at three a.m., but everyone was so sleepy by that time we can t even remember what we sang. There has been a lot of fun and house spirit at Newman Hall this year. Staying up all night to cram for exams and a lot of play after they are over is typical of the college life of the girls at Newman Hall. Page 394 First Row. left to right: Sister M.

And so, with this introduction to the ' 47 copy, we continue with the trials and tribulations of Logan " We have the panhellenic spirit " Hall. The KAT chapter provided a rotating action to the third floor that more than once ended in con- fusion as to who lived where. Finally the Theta girls became so confused by their eight-weeks ' change-about-plan that they took one of our girls with them to the white house next door. Blond Doris Helenbrand had no sooner arrived at mid- term than they decided she should help fly the Theta kite. The Kappa Kappa Gamma chapter and Logan seemed to be neck and neck for a while to see who would get whom. We chalked it up to experience and decided it was our loss and the Kappas ' gain when President Jennie Lou Berry decided to don the blue and blue. And we just more than missed that little red-headed Patty Dewar when she decided to move east, too. Logan lost another one of its girls when Danny Miller moved out to keep steady company with a certain PiKA named Howard. Before her departure, however, Danny did her bit to add to the laurels of Logan when she was named IMA girl of the year. And, of course, the usual number of distant wed- ding bells were heard throughout Logan during the course of the year. Betty Lou Theck came back from the Xmas holidays with not only a ring from her Sam but a nice new car, too. Betty Sharp cer- tainly hated to leave school in January but the pros- pect of an early spring wedding made it a little easier. OFFICERS First Semester Jennie Lou Berry Susie Prentice . President .

" Donna Douglas came home one day with a bright and shiny new Mortar Board pin. As for the main social functions of the year, Mrs. Logan gave a mighty fine Turkey Day dinner for her girls and their dates. The March of Dimes cot- tery was right in there and the formal ' Valentine ' s dance will be remembered by all for a fine evening.

But methinks. and the walls do. too, that eyes were not so wide last September and that most of the Greenery brought in was bottled. Instead of the usual meek, and inex- perienced freshmen that generally inhabit Franklin House, full fledged shysters, lady killers, and fast talkers arrived cockily at the ivy grown, overgrown, groan, campus. Only time will tell whether the precedents broken (see Bill Malaby ) and the cus- toms established by these boys will ever be out- moded or out-lived at Franklin House. It was last fall that saw the advent of a new under- world lord, " Scarface Al " Phil Henley, Moreover, much attention was attracted by J, C, Wear and George Foreman, who often appeared at breakfast with bloodshot eyes which hardly came from over- work. Wallace Haskett. Charles MacDonald. Charles Clark and heaven knows who else, were charter members of the " Those Who Have Received a Dear John Letter Club. " Speaking of love — no one ever talked on the telephone more often and with less luck than Bill Wright. It wasn ' t long before the rooms of the house felt fully the impact of the personalities they secreted (pun. son): take for instance the room of our ad- mired prexy and student senator. Bill Malaby and James Caster, where airplane dope and two for a nickel stogies vied to poison the atmosphere. Never to be forgotten is the combination of David Hedges ' Festpielhaus and the Rhymer-Minnett " Club for the Appreciation of Johnny Lee Wills on third floor. There were also some in the house who appreciated music. OFFICERS First Semester Bill Malaby . James Rhymer . Charles Clark Don Cole.man RoYCE Morgan President Vice-President Secretary Treasurer .

Don Boyer never understood every one ' s aversion to his stuffed serpent, the snake in the grass! Place for those who had an urge to tear up beds was pro- vided in Gilbert Lincoln ' s room. The housemaster, since the house was first estab- lished in 1942, has been Dr. J. K. Svendsen. The house now at 564 South Boulevard has been located in what is now Whitehand Hall and at 704 Lindsay. But no matter where Franklin is located it ' s still the place to have more fun than any other house on campus. Page 398 O. fTf C) p f . o lie .

This year is only the second year that King- fisher House has been organized but still it has many traditions. In the house are one hundred and twenty mighty handsome boys who are mostly freshmen. The organization of the house is built on the assump- tion that everybody has some field of extra-curricular activity in which they excel ... In intramurals the house suffered a cruel fate, losing half of their foot- ball games by a few points and four straight basket- ball games by only one point. When a gang of healthy Oklahoma University students gather there is never a dull moment, and Kingfisher has much more than its share of noise makers. In the House are members of many organi- zations. The Ruf-Neks, The Women Haters of the World, the reactivated Confederate Officers Club. and the Alumni Association of the Duncan Band are the predominant organizations among the boys of the House. In the folds of the Ruf-Neks is Burl Wilson, the loudest, the dumbest, and the worst bridge player in the House (he gave up the game after losing twenty-one straight rubbers). The campus ' most exclusive organization is the Women Haters of the World, of which Richard " He Opened the Door " Shaw is President, and Clar- ence Conn is social chairman. This club is in the Initinational Brotherhood of Misogynists (women haieis to the average layman). The Confederate Officers Club numbers many in the House and is the strongest organization repre- sented therein. All members bow toward Montgom- ery, Alabama, early in the morning. The outstand- ing members are Tom Wolfe, Bob Finley. Jack Aus- terman, and John Spencer. OFFICERS First Semester Richard Shaw Johnny Cooper . Forrest Monahan Jack Woods . . Dick Linehan . President .

But even more excitement was caused by the birth of a seven-pound baby girl to the housemaster ' s wife. The proud papa. Mr. Earl Kilpatrick, our poor de- fenseless housemaster, was forced to give out cigars to everyone, which promptly resulted in a smoker. Aside from studies. Kingfisher boys ' main inter- ests were activities and women, and somehow they seemed to take care of all three with no trouble at all. Page 400 First Row. left to right: Earl B.

Our house came up with more than its share of potential BMOC ' s, for the place literally is crawl- ing with ' em. First things came first, and so we got together with Sequoyah House for a dance on the 8th of November. All we can say is that it was mighty smoooooth . . . with the hall done in autumn colors . . . Lincoln Houseites gliding across the floor with their luscious little numbers ... all set to the super-smooth music of the Ramblers. With our share of characters and BTO ' s roaming our halls, no anthology would be complete without a word or two about . . . the only professional maniac at OU, Bob Scruggs ... not to be outdone by S. N. L. Portwood, otherwise affectionately known as " Suds. " for obvious reasons. Runners-up in the character race are " Brain One. " and " Brain Two, " in the persons of Joe and Henry Hoffman. At almost any hour of the day and night, you can hear a call go o ut from Room 123 for a fourth at bridge. We recall with pleasure the night of De- cember 19th, the night of the big pie feast. Here some 50 mince and pumpkin pies were washed down with gallons of steaming coffee. Then there is our swell housemother and master. Mr. and Mrs. Herman E. Nichols. With their small daughter, Diane, they make Lincoln House a little more like home. So we take our hats off to them. Most of us don ' t own hats . . . but if we did, we would take them off! Hollywood may have the world ' s most exciting brunette, but. Buddy, we have the world ' s most exciting red-head as housemother. Last year four of our members tied the final knot. The first one that went off the deep end was house president. Bob Hargrave. However, not to be out- done, he was quickly followed by David " Doc " Jack- OFFICERS First Semester Robert Hargrave Raymond Jenkins President Vice-President Arthur Rubin . Secretary and Treasurer Bruce Peterson . Social Chairman . Second Semester . Arthur Rubin Raymond Jenkins . Robert S. Smith Jess Warren son. Bob Christy, and Douglas Jackson. Every sec- ond Friday of the first week of the year we declare a five-minute moratorium for our fallen comrades. It would be pretty hard to say just what was the highlight of the year. There were too many high- lights all year long in Lincoln House. However, the age old discussions on wine, women, and which was better the Army or the Navy, continue to smolder in frequent bull sessions. Looking back we find that all this and a thousand and one other things made Lincoln House an ideal place in which to hang your pajamas during the day. Page 402 m ' rss- -«: ■ ' . «.

The spirit of the men of Irving is well known and Irving has always been prominent in leadership, scholastic, athletic and social achieve- ments. In the social field the names of Col Back, Willis Alderman, Pat McClung, Robert Polk, Clarence Scott and " Mortimer " Saunders will long be remem- bered as gay blades capable of making a host of friends wherever they go. With a month or so of the school year gone. Col Back indicated that he had given a diamond to Dottie Howell and that they would be married during the Christmas vacation. Perhaps the greatest shock came to the men of Irving manor when Charles Casteel was called to Fort Smith on urgent business just before the beginning of the Thanksgiving vacation. The nature of the business was his marriage to Gertrude Armstrong. William D. Crane left the ranks of Irving House ' s bachelors when he exchanged nuptial vows with Dr. Frances Blackert a few days before Christmas. " Old Faithful " Alderman has remained true to his fiancee, Dorothy Meyers, for many months now, but all indi- cations point to their coming marriage in June. High- lights of the season were the Christmas and Spring formals. That Irving House has just claim to leadership on campus is evidenced by the fact that James S. Mc- Neely. Jr., was not only President of the house but of the Student Senate as well. Hugh Hardy repre- sents the house in leadership ability by being the Secretary of the Student Senate, Vice President of Pick and Hammer and pledge-master of Sigma Gamma Epsilon. Willis Alderman is President of Pick and Hammer. Wayne Hubbard ' s claim to lead- ership is proved by his being Treasurer of the Inde- OFFICERS Fall Semester James S. McNeely Frank Pollock .

The claim of Irving House to scholastic hon- ors is based upon the individual academic honors of Willis Alderman, Hugh Hardy, Pat McClung, Paul Quillcn and Russell F. Thompson. The House of Irving is feared and respected in all fields of intramural athletics. The Irving softball team of the " defeater of champions " of last summer is back intact and is expected to add new laurels to its name before the end of the current season. Ac- ti ities such as these are shaping the character of the leaders of tomorrow, and the men of Irving House will take their place among them.

Our house has a special distinction in that it is one of the few build- ings that house organized men students that is pre- war. The building was formerly the Masonic dor- mitory and during the war was known as the Okla- homa Hotel. Most of the men inhabiting the dormitory moved from their temporary housing in the naval barracks at the north and south campuses after extensive re- pairs and remodeling had been completed. We are a congenial group and every one gets a chance with his " war story " as all of the residents are veterans. The dormitory was named in the memory of Rob- ert Whitehand, a former member of the school of drama faculty, who was the only University of Okla- homa faculty member killed in World War II. The youngest resident at the house is not even of university age and worse than that, its sex is female. The explanation (and you are wondering) is that a baby girl was born to the house mother and father, Mr. and Mrs. Bill Jennings, the same month that the dormitory was opened. The newest of the residents was named Jan. Probably the girl with the biggest male following on the campus is the Jennings ' other daughter, five-year-old Vicki, who knows practically every one of the one hundred seventy-six men at Whitehand — and by name, too. The outstanding social function staged by White- hand was the formal dance held at Woodrow Wil- son Center in January, which was one of the most successful affairs of the year. Part of the credit of putting over the dance must go to artist Durwood Robinson, whose novel decorations on the Hit Pa- rade theme included very clever and appropriate drawings depicting popular song titles.

Passers-by on the Boulevard side of Whitehand have gaped all year at Tom Harley ' s bottle hung from his third story room. He just has a " Lost Weekend " complex. Whitehand has lost a few of its residents during the year to Cupid as about six of the men forsook all to middle-aisle it. It is said that the best of men will fall for that home cooking line.

BAND " Big oaks from little acorns grow. " Thus spoke a sage of the past. How true it rings in the case of the " Pride of Oklahoma. " the Uni- versity of Oklahoma Band; and it all started from an eight-piece band under the direction of a teacher of Spanish. The history of the band is one full of struggles and hard knocks, but the pi- oneer spirit of Oklahoma must have been enough Leonard Haug Director of OU Bands. Conductor of Concert Band to keep the boys going. It was in the fall of 1905 that the band began to function as an offi- cial body. It was under the direction of Lloyd Curtis, who at that time was Professor of Span- ish in the University of Oklahoma, a struggling state institution in one building that persisted on burning down every chance it got. In the words of the 1905 Sooner Yearbook, it was described: " Not until this year could we boast a band, but now we have one with real military looking suits trimmed with crimson and cream and all the usual paraphernalia and Oh boy. aren ' t we proud of them! " Thus was the beginning of the " Pride of Oklahoma " band. By 1910 the band had grown to a membership of sixteen. Lloyd Curtis still was director but by this time the uniforms of the first band had been discarded and the boys attended all football games in their regular every day street attire, but still the band was the chief agent for the presence of a good school spirit. A growth move- ment had begun and the band prospered. Lloyd Curtis remained director until the war and under him the band had grown in membership from eight to thirty-one. Following the war Oscar }. Lehrer was made director of the band. By 1922 the band had grown to forty members. The uni- form now consisted of a red knit sweater, white duck trousers and a red overseas cap with the inscription " University of Oklahoma Band. " In Page Hi ji r ' r M M i l !

Wehrand became director and under his leader- ship the band grew into an organization of 200 regularly enrolled members. It was during this period that the brilliant red and white. West Point style uniform s were adopted and which still symbolize the " Pride of Oklahoma " Band. In the fall of 1945 Leonard H. Haug, who had been serving in the capacity of assistant director of the band since 1938, became director of the University of Oklahoma band. Since the close of World War II the band has been undergoing a building program. With the return of veterans to the campus, enthusiasm for band is again running high and competition is keen. Rapid strides have been made during the past two years. The band today is one of the University ' s most outstanding organizations. Essentially, it is a service institution, one which serves its campus community well throughout the entire school year. During the fall months thousands of spec- tators have been thrilled by the intricate maneu- vers and precision performances of the " Pride of Oklahoma ' marching band. Robert W.

Hubbard ACCOUNTING CLUB The Accounting Club was organized in 1932 for the purpose of bringing about a closer rela- tionship among Accounting majors, and to aid them in making advantageous contacts with those already successful in the field of Accounting. Membership is open to all students who have chosen Accounting as part of their major work. Each year the club awards a key to those members who have attained a " B " average in Accounting, after completing 12 hours in their major work. The idea of the key was adapted from a similar one used by the University of Illinois. The club meetings are held semi-monthly, at which time speakers of professional note are in- vited to address the club on some subject of a pertinent nature. It has been the custom of the club to hold a banquet near the close of each semester at which time the Accounting Club key is presented and all graduating seniors are introduced. During the war the club was disbanded, and the banquet has not been held for several years. When it was reactivated last spring, a picnic was held instead of the banquet. At the time of organization, it was decided to remain a local organization instead of joining the national fraternity. By remaining a local club, the dues are much less and are used for its o ' n benefit. The dues are used for entertainment after meetings when refreshments are served. During the fall semester, a new project was started to have members investigate the account- ing systems of outlying business organizations. A report was given at each meeting and another committee would be appointed. This year the Accounting Club had several outstanding speakers who talked to them on the various phases of their special field. These talks were very interesting and enlightening to the members of the club and will long be remembered after graduation. The officers for the fall semester were: Hugo Dallas. President: Eugene Donnelly. Vice Presi- dent; Josephine Schiefer. Treasurer: Lois Boyer. Secretary. The Accounting Club is controlled by various committees. They include the Key committee, which determines those who are eli- gible for a Key: the Membership committee, which determines the status of members and pledging of new members: the Entertainment committee, in charge of social activities: and the Publicity committee, which announces the meet- ings and promotes interest in the club.

ALPHA CHI SIGMA Alpha Chi Sigma, founded in 1902 at the Uni- versity of Wisconsin, is a professional fraternity in the field of chemistry and chemical engineer- ing. It is a charter member of the Professional Interfraternity Conference and is associated with the American Association for the Advancement of Science. There are over 18,000 members, forty-five collegiate chapters and thirty-two alumni chapters. Alpha Eta Chapter was estab- lished at the University of Oklahoma in 1919. Members of the fraternity are selected from students primarily interested in chemistry who are enrolled in at least their third semester of chemistry. Already drawn together by their pro- fession, they become linked in brotherhood through their associations within the fraternity. Contacts thus formed prove invaluable in terms of lasting friendship. The activity of the members of Alpha Chi Sigma is not limited to the collegiate years, but carries over into professional life. Upon leaving school, graduates transfer their membership to professional chapters located throughout the country to carry on the purposes of the frater- nity and to make even stronger those friendships and contacts formed during their college years. Alpha Chi Sigma furthers the advancement of chemistry by promoting research in pure chem- istry, and by aiding in technological develop- ments of the field. As part of its program. Alpha Chi Sigma sponsors the $1000 Pure Chemistry Award. This award is presented annually by the American Chemical Society to some person who has made outstanding contributions to chem- istry. Meetings of the local chapter are held once every two weeks. For open meetings, out- standing speakers are secured to acquaint stu- dents with current developments in chemistry. During the past year, a safety campaign has been conducted in cooperation with the National Safety Program. For a number of years there has been close liaison between this chapter and the professional group at Ponca City. The officers of the organization for this period are: Master Alchemist, Clinton V. Copeland; Treasurer, Milton Peek: Recorder, Elzie N. Hayes; Reporter, Frank O. Reudelhuber; Mas- ter of Ceremonies, Kenneth D. Williamson. Dr. H. H, Bliss was recently elected Sponsor, replac- ing Dr. Kenneth R. Crook and Dr. J. C. Colbert, who served during the war period. Dr. H. H. Rowley is District Counselor for Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana. Page 417 First row, left to right: Williams, A. I. Ortenburger (Sponsor), Everett. Price, Johnson. Second row: Kent.

ALPHA EPSILDN DELTA Alpha Epsilon Delta was founded as a na- tional honorary fraternity at the University of Alabama in the spring of 1926, Within a short time, it spread throughout the southern states, and today maintains its strongest chapters in the South. It was organized to offer recognition and to serve as a goal for pre-medical students. The fraternity is managed by national officers elected by chapter delegates at biennial conven- tions. At the present time. Alpha Epsilon Delta is the strongest existing fraternity of its kind. The Oklahoma Alpha chapter of Alpha Epsi- lon Delta traces its beginnings to a local pre- medical fraternity, Alpha Pi Mu, established on the campus in the fall of 1924. From OU, Al- pha Pi Mu spread to a number of other institu- tions in the region, including the Oklahoma Agri- cultural and Mechanical College at Stillwater and the Northwestern State Teachers College at Alva. On April 13. 1936, the University chap- ter of Alpha Pi Mu affiliated with Alpha Epsilon Delta, the national organization. There are 35 chapters scattered through colleges and univer- sities from coast to coast. New members are normally selected from the sophomore and junior classes, and are pledged in the fall and spring. At the present time, be- cause of shifts into pre-medical work from other fields, some of those chosen may be seniors or graduates. Selection is based on scholarship, leadership, and character. As an encouragement to scholarship and lead- ership among pre-medical students, the frater- nity sponsors the selection each year of an " out- standing pre-medical student: " the name of each student so chosen is engraved on a bronze plaque which is on e. hibit in the Biology Build- ing. A fifty-dollar award normally accompanies this distinction. The fraternity holds at least one business meeting each month. In addition, since one of its aims is that of fostering cooperation and con- tact between medical authorities and pre-medical students, it gives vigorous support to lectures given at the University by recognized leaders in the many fields of medicine. Dr. A. I. Ortenburger has been faculty ad- visor for the fraternity during the past year. During the same period, Levona Williams has served as President, and Mark A. Everett has been Vice President, Dick Price has served as Secretary, and Mary Jon Johnson as Treasurer. Page 418 1 First row. left to right: Lawton. Fry. Hetzler, Smith. Czarlinsky.

ALPHA EPSILDN RHD jm I Officers for Alpha Epsilon Rho for 1946-1947 are: President, Bobby Ruth Smith; Vice Presi- dent, Bill Monroe; Secretary, Norman Honea; Treasurer, Gene Paine; Historian-Reporter. Su- zanne Prentice; Assistant Editor of the Alpha Epsilon Rho Journal, Betty Jane Czarlinsky. Alpha Epsilon Rho is the only national hon- orary radio fraternity. It was founded as Beta Epsilon Phi at Stephens College, Columbia, Mis- souri, in December, 1941. In April, 1943, the name was changed to Alpha Epsilon Rho under the sponsorship of the Association for Educa- tion by Radio. Since then, thirteen active chap- ters have been installed on the university cam- puses throughout the United State. Theta Chapter was established at the University of Oklahoma on December 1, 1945. The purposes of Alpha Epsilon Rho are to increase the standards of radio work on univer- sity campuses, and to further interest in radio as a profession. The fraternity also serves to honor those students who have done outstanding work in the broadcasting of school radio programs. Members are urged to develop their abilities in radio writing, radio production, and radio drama. To be eligible for membership, students must be outstanding radio majors who have completed two semesters of radio work with a high schol- astic average, and they must have participated in at least ten WNAD productions. The members of Alpha Epsilon Rho wear the official pin which has at its center a gold micro- phone, the symbol of radio and television com- munication, surrounded by pearls. At the top of the pin are the fraternity symbols. An outstanding event of Theta Chapter ' s year is the Annual Radio Conference, held in Nor- man and Oklahoma City in March, Theta Chapter is official host to the delegates. During the conference Theta members give a breakfast for all visiting members of the fraternity and for members of the Association for Education by Radio. Theta sponsor is Dr. Sherman P. Lawton, University coordinator of radio, national execu- tive Secretary of Alpha Epsilon Rho, who has done much to make Theta Chapter of Alpha Ep- silon Rho so successful on the University of Oklahoma campus. In spite of its youth. Alpha Epsilon Rho has already achieved a prominent place on the cam- pus and promises to become one of the truly im- portant goals for all those majoring in radio at the University.

Marks, Historian; and Pat Lance, Re- porter. Jane Steinhorst serves as Collegiate Alumnae Advisor and Miss Mary Ricker. resi- dent counselor at the freshman dormitories, acts as Faculty Sponsor. Alpha Lambda Delta is a national honorary fraternity for freshman women. It was founded at the University of Illinois in 1924. It became a nationwide organization two years later. The University of Oklahoma chapter, which was one of the first established, was chartered in 1924. Membership requirements are entirely schol- astic. To be eligible, a freshman woman must have a 2.5 average for her first semester work. with a minimum of fourteen hours credit. A stu- dent may also be pledged if she has a 2.5 aver- age for her entire freshman year. Members are active until they become juniors, at which time they are classified as collegiate alumnae. The local chapter was founded under the spon- sorship of Dr. Jewel Wurtzbaugh. Professor of English. It has two formal pledgings and in- itiations yearly, one during the first semester and one during the second. Alpha Lambda Delta works with Mortar Board in checking house and individual grade averages and in sponsoring the traditional Mor- tar Board walkout. The walkout is held during the fall semester. Members of Alpha Lambda Delta, dressed en- tirely in white, follow those of Mortar Board. The two groups, leading a procession of women, walk from Administration Hall to Owen Sta- dium, where awards are given to the ten out- standing freshman women of the previous year. Mary K. Marks, historian, was named top coed from the 1945-46 freshman class. A lighted candle is the symbol of the Frater- nity. The pin. which is in this shape, has four pearls and a ruby, with the Greek initials at the base. It may be worn as an individual pin or as a guard for another one. National activities include the sponsorship of a tutoring system and the recognition of the member who makes the highest grades for her freshman year. Alpha Lambda Delta meets monthly in the AWS room. The president, in addition to her regular duties, serves as chairman of the schol- astic committee of Associated Women Students. Members of the frfeshman honorary fraternity are often later selected for Mortar Board. Page 420 x j " ! First rou left to right: Kicks. Mark, Goldsmith, Daniels, Mahoney, Hassen.

ALPHA PHI DMEGA Alpha Phi Omega is a national service frater- nity dedicated to service to the student body and faculty, to youth and community, to members of the fraternity, and to the nation as participating citizens. Delta Beta chapter is one of the 118 chapters located in colleges and universities throughout the United States. Being a service fraternity. Alpha Phi Omega crosses all lines of honorary, social and profes- sional fraternities, and thus members of other campus organizations may also be active in this one. There are two fu ndamental requirements for active membership: first, that the student has had previous experience in the Scout Movement; and second, that he prove an earnest desire to render service to others. Delta Beta Chapter at Oklahoma University was organized during the fall term of 1942 with 27 active charter members, but because of the war became inactive the spring of 1943. When veterans returned to the campus, the chapter was reactivated in 1946 with ten active members. Dr. E. Thayer Curry. Mr. Clifford M. Baumback. and Mr. Everett P. True.x are active as faculty advisors to Delta Beta Chapter. Mr. H. B. Par- sons, field scout executive, is scouting advisor. The chapter now has 36 active members and five alumni members. In brief, these are several of the projects Al- pha Phi Omega has handled this year. They have supervised evening swimming periods in the University men ' s pool for the boy scouts in this area. They aided veterans in filling terminal leave forms, in conjunction with the American Legion. They aided in securing blood donations at the University and assisted in several Student Senate elections. They operated a booth in the Union lobby and canvassed the fraternity and independent men ' s houses for the Tuberculosis Christmas Seal Drive. Alpha Phi Omega as- sisted the March of Dimes drive, sponsored the " Ugly Man " contest in this drive, and also han- dled the Student Senate referendum on Frontier Days with the exception of counting the votes. The success of Alpha Phi Omega depends en- tirely upon the leadership given by the members in the promotion of its service program. A great majority of the members are very active in other campus activities and organizations, but by be- ing aware of the keen responsibility vested in them as active members, have helped make this a most successful year for Alpha Phi Omega.

BAPTIST STUDENT UNION The Baptist Student Union of the University of Oklahoma is composed of students who hold membership in any of the organizations of the local Baptist churches of Norman. The B.S.U., a Southwide movement, has organizations on most of the campuses of the South. It developed some years ago as the link between the college student away from his home church and the Baptist church in the college town. One of the chief purposes of the B.S.U. is the enlistment of every Baptist student in the college church. This work is carried on by groups of church-interested students who seek to contact every Baptist on the campus and en- list him in church activities. Social and recreational life is given due con- sideration by the B.S.U. Each year a number of picnics, parties, and banquets are sponsored by the Student Union. The climaxing social event of the Baptist Students ' year is the Spring ban- quet, always among the most festive and beauti- ful banquets of the school year. Usually at- tended by more than 200 people, the main inter- est of the banquet is the installation of the fifteen officers of the Baptist Student Union Council. Provided for University students by the Bap- tists of Norman and Oklahoma is the Student Center on Boyd near the President ' s home. The building has been enlarged this year to accommo- date the larger enrollment of Baptist students. The erection of a building to cost $100,000 is contemplated by Oklahoma Baptists for the near future. The principal matter of interest of the B.S.U. is the developing of the spiritual life of a college student while he is growing mentally. All of the activities of the B.S.U. have at the center the developing of strong Christian character. The Baptist Student Union, in its very broad- est meaning, is the voluntary religious activities of the Baptist students within the schools and universities of the South, as provided for and promoted by Southern Baptists. Each Baptist preference student in the Uni- versity of Oklahoma is a potential member of the Baptist Student Union. Features of the year ' s activities include the ' Welcome Party at the beginning of the school year, the State Baptist Student Convention, a Thanksgiving Service and Breakfast, and a formal Christmas banquet. The officers are: President. Arthur McEl- murry; Vice President. Bill Fisher: Secretary, Kathleen Hough: Treasurer. W. P. Sturgis; Pastor Advisor, Rev. E. F. Hallock: and Faculty Advisor. Dr. J. O. Hannes Malthanes. Page 422 • v 9 9 Cs Ol v o t ? 1 1 t f f -f First row, left to right: Cook, Kirkpatrick. Sowers, Upchurch, Shuman, Cosgrove, Truex. Crill. Second row: Holliday, Berry.

DELTA SIGMA PI I In order to secure a closer and more practical affiliation between the world of commerce and the commercial students, Delta Sigma Pi was founded nationally on November 7, 1907, and came to this campus November 4, 1929. Its members are chosen on the basis of scholarship of business students and they must pass the approval of the chapter. An outstanding feature of the organization is its annual presentation of a key to the highest ranking male senior in the College of Business Administration. Organization members keep in close contact through smokers and business meetings held on alternate weeks. Prominent businessmen are invited as guest speakers to explain the latest trends in the busi- ness world. Guest speakers this year have in- cluded Mr. J. Bruce Wiley, member of the firm of J. Bruce Wiley and Associates, Valuation En- gineers; Webster L. Benham, Jr., Assistant Man- ager of Station KOMA; Theodore D. Green- shields, Norman business man and charter mem- ber of this chapter, and J, E. Mertes, Associate Professor of Marketing. College of Business Administration. Each spring the local chapter members meet with members from Texas University and Bay- lor University in Dallas. Here is held a South- western Regional Conference and the groups spend three days touring Dallas firms for per- sonal contact and information. It has been customary in the past for the chap- ter to make industrial tours of Oklahoma City, Norman, and surrounding towns from time to time, where various business establishments and their operations were explained. The Beta Epsilon chapter is sponsored by W. K. Newton, Professor and head of the Depart- ment of Accounting. Other faculty members who are members of this chapter include Dr. Ronald B. Shuman, Professor and head of the Department of Business Management; George A. Hoke, Professor of Business Law; Burton H. Gildersleeve, Associate Professor of Finance; Everett P. Truex, Assistant Professor of Eco- nomics, and John F. Chaney, Special Instructor in Accounting and Director of Statistical Service Laboratory. Honorary members are Mr. Byron L. Bowers, District Manager of Home State Life Insurance Co., initiated in 1939; Mr. Frank Phillips, well known oil magnate from Bartlesville. initiated in 1940, and C. R. Anthony, President of C. R. Anthony Company, initiated in 1941. The officers for the year 1946-47 were T. Rod- erick Holliday, Headmaster; W. Hayes Holli- day, Senior Warden; O. Duane Crill, Treasurer, and William L.

The Drug Store Cowboys were founded on the campus of the University of Oklahoma in 1940 following the annual Homecoming celebra- tion in which a number of pharmacy students had participated as " drug store cowboys. " riding horses and generally cutting up. They had so much fun that they decided to convert the ac- tivity into a permanent organization. The purpose of this rough riding, straight shooting, soda jerking group is to promote good- will, merriment, sunshine of the mind, high glee, mirth and delirium for the sheer enjoyment of life, all of which are e.xtremely desirable, and furthermore to dispel and eradicate drooping spirits, heart sinking, disgust of life, and blank despondency, which sometimes lay hold of people. Besides the strange names used as officer des- ignations, the members are called " buckaroos in good standing at the University of Oklahoma Ranch of the pharmacy fun organization. Drug Store Cowboys. " Pledges to the organization wear a leather rosette and are eventually initiated publicly with plenty of horse-play. Cowboys are usually branded rather copiously with lip- stick. Not only do the members have a special kind of fun when initiation rolls round, but any- one on the campus who cares to come and watch will surely leave the scene of the merriment thinking he should have been in pharmacy just so he could be more a part of such a unique in- itiation instead of only as onlookers. The colors are buckskin and raspberry, and the official song is " Boots and Sodas. " One of the highlights of the year is the traditional Cow- boy Chow, which features plenty of chili, crack- ers, pickles, coffee, and sugar. With ravenous appetites, the members see to it that every scrap is eaten and plans are eagerly laid for the Chow for next year. The official flag is a rectangular figure divided diagonally, the upper triangle exhibiting a rasp- berry soda on a field of buckskin, and the lower triangle a pair of buckskin colored boots on a background color of raspberries. With the return of peace and horses to the campus, the Drug Store Cowboys are back in full force and are once more riding again — this time better than ever.

Thomas, Thornton, West, McNeely, Fisher, Hambrick, Geiser, Walaby, IMA On September 1, 1946, the new I.M.A. secre- tary took office and began a plan of organization to carry on the ideals and achievements of the original group who first began the I.M.A. To take care of the many varied functions of the I.M.A. the following committees were or- ganized to see that nothing was left undone. Af- ter much concerted effort by the various officers, great strides have been taken to provide a pro- gram for the independent men. Gene Sheid. social chairman, with a committee of five men, arranged the date bureau to take care of any independent men desiring compan- ionship with other independent girls. Future so- cial functions were always on the planning board. Some of these included steak roasts, swim fests, song fests, hay rides, dance lessons, and many other interesting features. Dick Witten, athletic chairman, took over the reins in the intramural sports, and the districts all entered various teams to participate in the many sports offered by the intramural depart- ment. A committee of five men aided Dick in seeing that each district went on to the goal of victory at every game. Marvin Hambrick. scholastic chairman, was in charge of promoting a program to induce in- dependent members to strive for better grade averages; to help one another in tutorial service, and to bring a better understanding between the student and his faculty members. Special awards were made for the highest grade averages during the semester. Floyd Johnston, inter-campus chairman, headed one of the most important offices. With a committee of five, Floyd ' s task was to strive for better understanding between the I.M.A. and other campus organizations. Their problems be- came the problems of the I.M.A.. and with a generous supply of patience and cooperative as- sistance, Floyd began a program of helping other groups on the campus as well as other schools. Dick Ratliff, publicity chairman, has done a commendable job in the journalistic department of the I.M,A, When the organization is in need of first rate publicity in the city papers or the school paper, the I,M,A, calls Dick to print the facts, H. B. Frank, chairman of the special commit- tee, has been busy giving of his time and effort, and is bringing the benefits of the I.M.A. to those who are handicapped in some way. All in all, this has been a banner year for I.M.A. with capable officers, outstanding mem- bers, a wonderful spirit of cooperation and desire for achievement among the whole organization.

Buswell, Vice President; Robert E, Bowling, Secretary; Edgar Ruggles, Treasurer; and Leon- ard H. Haug. Sponsor, Kappa Kappa Psi, national honorary frater- nity for college bandsmen, was founded at Ok- lahoma A £ M College, Stillwater, Oklahoma, on November 27, 1919. The fraternity has a four-fold objective: To create a feeling of closer fellowship among members of the band; to afford encouragement and assistance to members in carrying on their work and advice as to the best course to pursue; to encourage musical ability and honor outstanding bandsmen; to foster closer relationship between college bands and musical organizations; and to perfect an organization for the advancement of a higher type of music in bands organized in colleges and universities throughout the campuses of the United States. Delta Chapter at the University of Oklahoma was chartered on May 21, 1921. There are at the present time 40 active chapters. Members are the outstanding men of the band with which the chapter is affiliated, and are selected on the basis of their " leadership, musical ability, schol- arship, and loyalty to the band. " During its existence on the campus of the University of Oklahoma. Delta chapter has in- itiated as honorary members such famous bands- men as the late John Phillip Sousa; Edwin Franko Goldman, director of the Goldman Band; Joseph E, Maddy, of the Eastman School of Music; Captain Taylor Branson, and Captain William J. Stannard. Oscar J. Lehrer and Wil- liam R. Wehrend. both former members of the University of Oklahoma band, are also honor- ary members. Others include: Frank Simon, Boh Makovsky, Herbert L, Clarke, Henry Fill- more and J. B. Vandamarker. Delta Chapter was reactivated from wartime dormancy when eight pledges were initiated in January, 1946, The chapter is now preparing to pursue its services to the band of the Uni- versity of Oklahoma. Mr. Leonard H. Haug. who is the Sponsor of Kappa Kappa Psi. has done much to make it the success that it is today. Besides being director of the University Bands he has willingly given his time to the sponsorship of Kappa Kappa Psi and has helped make it an organization which will long be remembered and appreciated by its members after graduation.

LAMBDA KAPPA SIGMA Officers of Lambda Kappa Sigma are: Betty Sue Riley, President; Morree G lover, Vice Pres- ident; Louise Pope, Secretary and Treasurer; and Miss Blanche Sommers is Sponsor, Iota Chapter of Lambda Kappa Sigma is a branch of the national organization founded at the Boston, Massachusetts, College of Pharmacy in 1912. Its purpose is to promote good fellow- ship and professional interest among women stu- dents in Pharmacy. A grade " C " with no fail- ures is required for membership. The chapter at the University of Oklahoma was founded in 1922. Each year Lambda Kappa Sigma gives a cash award to the outstanding girl in the School of Pharmacy. This award is given at the annual Oklahoma University Pharmaceutical Associa- tion Convention. Lambda Kappa Sigma holds initiation each semester for the girls who are new and have made a " C " average or better. This semester we initiated Beatrice Black, Faye Xezonatos, Jo Anne Aingell, Norene Foreman, Betty Kerr, Idalle Alkire, Evelyn Harris, Bobby Miller, Norma Lee Corbitt, Roberta Cecil, and Delores Ray. Following initiation the old members en- tertain the new ones with a dinner. The national organization holds a biennial convention. It is in different sections of the country each time; a western chapter being host one year, a mid-western chapter the next and so on. The last convention was held in Portland, Oregon, and Louise Pope represented Iota Chap- ter at this meeting. First and third Tuesdays are meeting dates of the organization. They are business meetings, informal get-togethers over dinner, coffee and the like. The purpose of this organization is to promote good will and to stimulate interest and a profes- sional understanding among the women. Its pur- pose is also to promote a professional career in which women may become independent and give as well as take something from the world. Mem- bers are selected on the ba sis of character, schol- arship, and personality. Some of our former members who are out- standing are; Mary Alice Taylor, Pearl Corbett Howell, Catherine Graham, and Adelia Pierce. Miss Taylor and Mrs. Howell both own and operate their own drug stores. Miss Graham is now assistant chief chemist in an outstanding concern in Chicago. Miss Pierce was a chemist in a much needed powder plant. Lambda Kappa Sigma assists in planning and preparation of food and entertainment in OU PhA mixers. Members have a vital part in other OUPhA activities. Page 427 Left to right: Ledgerwood. York. Johnson. Fowler. Unzner. McDcannon. Durham. Not in picture: Virginia Dodson, Rosahe Raeburn. Vernon L.

The initiative for the beginning work of the organization was taken by Almarian Berch Hollingsworth. and through her untiring efforts Lambda Tau came into being. The objectives of the organization are: To develop a spirit of cooperation and unity among students entering the field of Biological Labora- tory Technology; to direct other students into this field; to stimulate a higher type of ideals of scholastic effort and to help develop the profes- sional character of the work itself; to find out and make known the requirements of hospitals and other institutions offering training: to pre- pare, by association, to take a place in the field of Biological Laboratory Technology. The official pin of the organization consists of a white cross, representing the counting chamber of the blood count slide. Superimposed on the cross is the diluting pipette of the haemocyto- meter and the Greek letters of Lambda Tau. The colors of the society are green and white, the colors of the American Medical Association. Lambda Tau consists of associate, active, fac- ulty and honorary members. The requirements for each type of member differ. The organiza- tion meets twice monthly, one business meeting for the active members and one being a social meeting for all members. The activities of the group include a large party given each semester for all eligible labora- tory technologists, the executive council meeting at which time pledging takes place, the initiation banquet with a guest speaker who addresses the group. Dr. Di.xie Young has been the sponsor of the group since its organization. The present aims of the society are for the establishment of other chapters at universities which offer courses in laboratory technology and for the formation of a national group. This field of study is relatively new. and Lambda Tau is one of the first organi- zations of its kind. Lambda Tau has been one of the greatest en- thusiasms for all young laboratory technicians, starting at the University of Oklahoma. It has stretched its vision beyond the four years of academic life the technician spends in college, and has endeavored to better prepare the tech- nician for special interests in research and ad- vancement of this science.

Levona Williams; Recording Secre- tary and Treasurer. Sofia Zuniga; Corresponding Secretary and Historian. Peg Marchant. Mortar Board is a national honor society for senior women. Its members are elected by unan- imous vote of the active chapter from junior women who have been outstanding in scholar- ship, leadership and service to the University. The formal tapping ceremony is held in the classrooms with the Mortar Board members at- tired in traditional black caps and gowns. To be tapped by Mortar Board is one of the highest honors a woman can receive on the O.U. cam- pus; it is a recognition of superior scholarship, and participation and leadership in outstanding campus organizations. The purpose of Mortar Board is to promote college loyalty, to advance the spirit of service and fellowship among university women, to maintain a high standard of scholarship, to rec- ognize and encourage leadership, and to stimu- late and develop a finer type of college woman. Owl and Triangle, the University of Okla- homa ' s chapter, is one of seventy-eight in the national organization. National Mortar Board was formed in 1918. and Owl and Triangle was granted a charter in 1925. There are Mortar Board chapters in forty states. Among Mortar Board s activities is the annual Mortar Board Walk-Out, which is held in the fall as the climax to the AWS Orientation pro- gram. At this time the members and sponsors of Mortar Board are introduced, the ten outstand- ing freshman women are presented, and the scholarship awards to the organized houses are announced for the preceding semester. In the spring Mortar Board gives the " Smarty Party " honoring those women who have made grades of " B or Better " for the preceding semester. At this time Scholarship Scrolls are presented to the ten sophomores making the highest grades, the house awards for the fall semester are made, and the members of Alpha Lambda Delta and Phi Beta Kappa are introduced. Mortar Board assists the Student Senate in conducting campus elections, and entertains the guests of the AWS Career Confernce with a reception in the Union Lounge. Miss Margaret Fisher, Mrs. C. M. Baumback. and Mrs. Richard Taft have served as Sponsors, and Miss Virginia Reinecke. Counselor of Women, as sponsor ex-officio. Page 429 First row. e f to right: Scott. Sykora. Hardin. Force. Bates.

MU PHI EPSILDN The officers of Mu Phi Epsilon are: President, Man Scott; Vice President, Laveme Sturdivant; Corresponding Secretary, Marie Sykora; Treas- urer, Phyllis Force; and Historian, Roberta Har- din. The faculty sponsor is Wilda Griffin. Mu Phi Epsilon is a National Honorary Pro- fessional Music Sorority for women music stu- dents. The aims of the sorority are to promote friendship, scholarship, and musicianship among the women music students of the colleges and universities of the country. Mu Phi Epsilon was founded on November 13. 1903, at the Metro- politan College of Music, Cincinnati, Ohio, Mu Kappa chapter was established at the University of Oklahoma in 1922. The national publication of the organization is The Triangle. It is issued on the quarterly basis with one issue given over entirely to articles of merit by active and alumnae members. The annual Founder ' s Day Banquet was held this year on November 13, in the Woodruff Room of the Union Building. Guests included active and alumnae members from all over the state. National projects of the organization include the Mu Phi Epsilon School of Music at Gad ' s Hill Settlement in Chicago; a biennial composi- tion contest and annual research awards; con- tributions to the Young Artist ' s Contests and the Edgar Stillman Kelly Junior Scholarships spon- sored by the National Federation of Music Clubs, and also to the MacDowell Colony at Peterborough. New Hampshire. The National Convention of Mu Phi Epsilon was held this past summer in New York City. The delegate to the convention from Mu Kappa chapter was Mari Scott. The National Conven- tions are held once every two years and dele- gates from many schools and states are there to attend. Throughout its existence Mu Phi Epsilon has continued to uphold the same high standards of musicianship, friendship, and scholarship among its members and those members find this to be true even after graduation for the friends made in the sorority remain close ones. Membership elections are based upon scholar- ship, musicianship and character, with at least three recommendations from members of the fac- ulty. A grade average of at least a 2.0 must be maintained. Initiations take place as early as the sophomore year on up through the graduate classes, with election not earlier than the second semester of the freshman year.

The members of Newman Club meet in their club room, 717 West Boyd Street, every other Wednesday evening at 7:45 P.M. Through the club ' s religious activities, mem- bers participate in discussions on theology, his- tory of the Church and Catholic action. Stu- dents further their knowledge and understand- ing of religion by reading assorted doctrinal books in the club library. Frequent opportuni- ties are arranged to meet and hear prominent clergymen and laymen of Oklahoma analyze re- ligious and social problems of the day. Social activities consist of Communion Break- fasts held on specified dates throughout the year. Coffee Hour in the club room after the ten o ' clock Mass on Sundays, informal socials in the club room after Benediction each Sunday even- ing, dancing after club meetings, specially ar- ranged dances and outings. The Newman Club is affiliated with the Inter- religious Council and participates in the Chapel Hour on WNAD. Friday afternoon Coffee Hours in the " Y " lounge and Religious Emphasis Week activities. All Catholic student devotions are held in the Mater Admirabilis Chapel, which was built and is maintained for the students and faculty mem- bers. Members of Newman Club sing in the chapel choir, serve Mass and act as ushers. Masses are said at 7:00 A.M. on week days and 8:00 A.M. on Sundays and Holy Days of Obli- gation. Benediction is held at 7:45 P.M. in the chapel each Sunday. The Catholic girls of Newman Hall and the members of Theta Kappa Phi, Catholic men ' s fraternity, cooperate closely in supporting reli- gious and social activities of the club. The first Newman Club was organized at the University of Pennsylvania in 1893. The name Newman was adopted to honor the great Eng- lish teacher and writer, John Henry Cardinal Newman.

A. are: Curtis Potter, president: Clyde Shannon, vice president: Louise Pope, secretary: Belle Standifer, treasurer, and John Rains, parliamentarian. The Oklahoma University Pharmaceutical As- sociation, better known as OUPhA. was organ- ized by seventy-two charter members in the spring of 1934. For thirteen years it has ably filled a definite place in the School of Pharmacy. There are now five societies in OUPhA — So- ciety of General Pharmacist, Society of Prescrip- tion Pharmacist, Society of Hospital Pharmacist, Society of Research Pharmacist an d Society of Military Pharmacist, They meet regularly and discuss current topics of interest to their society. By taking part also in the activities of one of these smaller societies, each student can give direction to his special interests. Without question, the foremost activity of the OUPhA is its annual one-day practice conven- tion. Only one time in its thirteen years of exis- tence has it failed to hold one of these — the year 1945. These conventions are patterned after those given by state, district, and national pharma- ceutical organizations. The morning is devoted to meetings of the five societies, held consecu- tively so that all may attend. In the afternoon the General Session convenes. Following the keynote address and the presentation of awards and prizes, a spirited election of officers for the coming year is conducted. In the evening comes the banquet with a toastmaster. presentation of surprise awards, which are the Buckley award for the best all-round boy, the Lambda Kappa Sigma award for the best all-round girl, the Lehn-Fhink award for the highest ranking sen- ior, and the Rho Chi award for the highest rank- ing sophomore. The honorary president of OUPhA, Mr. Lace Fitschen. president of the Alexander Drug Company. Oklahoma City, crowned " Miss Pharmacy of 1947 " at the inter- mission of the Convention Dance. Meetings are held every Friday during the school year, the character of which may be busi- ness, entertainment or informal talks by out- standing men in pharmacy and allied professions. The Oklahoma University Pharmaceutical As- sociation sponsors a mixer at the first of every semester to welcome the new students into the Pharmacy School. Throughout the year they sponsor entertainment highlighted by a large pic- nic in the spring. This year the Oklahoma University Pharma- ceutical Association took part in the annual A. W. S. Activities Festival by decorating a Page 432 ' V-T ' oZ Mi SN " IP ' - - ' fa " - .. " V - 2 ' .is ' ' ' ' -.V ' .T-i-fl-a i - ; " -.- " " ■- .■.• " ' ' D. U. PH. A. booth representing pharmacy. For these efforts we were awarded third place among twenty-six entries. Among its other responsibihties. OUPhA sponsors the model drug store in the Pharmacy School, which is managed by a student manager appointed by the governing body with the ap- proval of the dean. The student manager ac- quired his help from volunteers from the student body. Edward McFall of Frederick, Oklahoma, served as manager for this school term. The model drug store is a co-operative concern used by the Drug Store Management and Merchan- dising classes of the Pharmacy School as a lab- oratory. They have redecorated the drug store this year. The size of the Oklahoma University Pharma- ceutical Association has increased so much that we have had to move from our regular meeting place in the Pharmacy Building to the Business Administration auditorium. Three hundred and twelve students are enrolled in OUPhA this year. The Pharmacy School more than doubled their enrollment this last year. Two former OUPhA members are now on the pharmacy faculty. They are Mr. Porter H. Sto- vall and Mr. William G. Bray. Mr. Stovall graduated in the class of 1943 and Mr. Bray was a graduate in 1935. The Oklahoma University Pharmaceutical As- sociation was founded by Dean D. B. R. John- son and Dr. Ralph Bienfang, but a group of the students in the Pharmacy School had started holding weekly meetings twenty years before, which were to help promote a mutual feeling be- tween students in the school, and also to discuss the vital problems in the field. Dean Johnson and Dr. Bienfang act as advisers and sponsors of the organization. A new day seems to be dawning in the profes- sion of pharmacy, a condition that Dean Johnson has been working toward for the past forty years. The long hours spent inside the drug store have given way to the eight-hour day. The old dark, ill-smelling store with its mysterious pharmacist hiding in the dark corners with his strange, un- canny drugs has faded into the by-gone years. The beautiful front, with well-designed glass cases, counters and shelves, lighted with fluores- cent light, spotlessly clean, which speaks of neat- ness and accuracy of a scientist, well-trained, ready to serve an eager public in their desire for pure, high type medicines, has taken the place of the former mystery shop.

RAMBLERS The Ramblers, one of the oldest campus bands, was first organized in 1923. This year, under the leadership of Bryce McFall, they are starting their third year after reorganizing since the war, and those terrific arrangements you ' ve been hear- ing this year are due to the work and talent of Bob Dillon. Some famous alumni of the Sooners are Larry Cotton, Glen Hughes, who is the trombonist and singer with Freddie Martin ' s Orchestra, and Pinkie Tomlin. Bryce McFall, the manager of the band, is a new member and overflowing with experience. He has played (and recorded) with Blue Bar- ron. Russ Carlyle and Anson Weeks, and had bands of his own while in the service — he ' s a terrific trombone player. Tommy Reynolds is a pre-dental freshman who also had his own bands while in the army. He ' s one of the best on the piano and replaced Norman Bonner this year. Bob Harris, the vocalist, is about the best to ever sing with the band. He ' s a Delt and also a big man in the Engine School. Some of the old timers in the Ramblers are Jean Finnell, Don Means, Bill Ansel, Fred Jack- son and Miller Davidson. Jean originally joined the band in 1940 and is back after taking time out for the war. Don Means, besides being an outstanding member of the Sooners, is Vice Pres- ident of the OU band. Bill Ansel, a member of the famous Sooners band before the war, did a little playing for Tex Beneke ' s band while in the service. Fred is majoring in sales engineering and has worked with differen t Navy bands. Da- vidson, a Sigma Nu, is a pretty busy man. Be- sides playing with the band, he is booker and business manager for the Sooners — oh, yes, he also goes to school over at the B.A. building. Well known about the state is Ralph " Scat " Doughty who was with Jimmy Baker ' s dance band at some little college up in Stillwater. Kendall Falk, a new member of the band, is one of the finest trumpet players to come out of Oklahoma City in many years. He replaced the vacancy left by Donald Rogge who joined a hotel band in Houston. Denny Crofton — just one of the Sigma Chis — hails from the University of Arizona and is fea- tured on the tenor sax. Off duty hours, he is busy buying hamburgers for Shirley Stephens and slave driving " those 85 poor little pledges. " Don Allman does some arranging for the band and also plays the baritone sax. He ' s an F.A. grad and a member of Kappa Kappa Psi. Pa 30 434 First row, left to right: Collingsworth, Moore, Wright, Russell, Gish (Leader) Second row: Willey, Lane. SODNER ORCHESTRA The Sooner Combo likes to " Say it with Mu- sic " and they " Can ' t Get Out of this Mood. " After wondering " How Deep is the Ocean " in the service they got " Together " again with a " September Song " " On the Outskirts of Town " and began " Doin ' What Comes Natur ' lly. " Af- ter rehearsing " Night and Day, " giving " Body and Soul, " suddenly, " Out of Nowhere, " they found that " Rumors Were Flying " and they were the " Talk of the Town. " Since then, the Combo has thrilled many — from " A Gal in Calico " to a " Sophisticated Lady. " Many a " Sleepy Time Gal " asked for " Five Minutes More " of " Dancing in the Dark " but the manager would say, " We have to quit ' Sooner or Later ' so ' I Guess Lll Get the Papers and Go Home ' — we can ' t play ' Till the End of Time ' . " So with the playing of " Home Sweet Home " the band would watch the last " Two Silhouettes " as they faded away " Somewhere in the Night. " Then the boys would go " Tippin ' In " at " Day- break " — " To Each His Own " and " Dream " that " They Say It ' s Wonderful " (the music, that is!). The name of O.U. athletic teams, the " Soon- ers, " was taken by a band in 1927. Successive bands have followed from that time, keeping the name of the Sooners. They were forced to dis- band in 1942 when the call for military service went out, and were reorganized last September. Mike Gish, manager of the " pre-war " Sooners, and Bob Wright organized the band into a com- pact 7-man organization to fill the need for a small band to play for informal private dances. The Combo has gained popularity on the campus as well as with many country clubs throughout the state. Mike Gish, graduate student in music from Norman, managed the band the first semester and plays trumpet. Bob Wright, senior engineering student from El Dorado, Arkansas, plays sax and clarinet. Ben Russell, sophomore business student from Altus, managed the band the second semester and plays tenor sax and clarinet. Charles Moore, the only pre-war Sooner other than Gish, is an engineering senior from Hugo and plays sax and clarinet. Johnny Lane, sophomore journalist from Pampa, Texas, thrilled many dancers with his rhythmic piano styling. Bill Willey, freshman from Altus, plays drums for the Combo. Paul Collingsworth was vocalist for the first semester but because of excessive work had to leave the band the second semester. He was replaced by Bill Holmes. Pago 435 f; ' :? ' " -y aii.

VARSITY CLUB The Varsity Club is back on the campus again after a conspicuous three-year absence. The band was organized in 1936 and since that time has been playing the best in music for OU stu- dents. Called by Hal Kemp " The best collegiate dance band in America. " the club does not rest on its laurels. It is easily recognized by its smooth melodic style for the band ' s arrangements are based on a type of music created by the late Glenn Miller. The fine clear voicing, especially in the reeds, is amply illustrated by such rare old Miller tunes as " At Last. " " Moonlight Cocktail " and scores of others, all student stand-bys. Each year the band is more or less officially introduced when they play at Rickner ' s for three or four evenings prior to the first week of school. These little sessions have by now become almost traditional. Invariably they are terrific evenings. This year the band recommenced its annual trek to the Oklahoma-Te.xas game at Dallas, playing for the big Oklahoma party at the Plan- tation Club. Throughout the year the band has been called upon to provide music for many of the top parties and social functions, not only on the campus, but over the entire southwest. Now just a little bit about the boys in the band and here ' tis: In the " Club ' s " solid rhythm section are Bill Wise, drums. Shawnee; Lou Powers, piano. Oklahoma City, and Art ' Wallace, bass, Tulsa. Bill Wise also " books " the band. This group is the one which gives the drive to such tunes as " The Prisoner ' s Song. " The brass section, which we have all listened to on such tunes as " S Wonderful, " is com- posed of Joe Hogan. trombone. Okmulgee: Jack Weech. first trumpet. Toledo. Ohio: Gene Walker, second trumpet. Enid, and Dave Wil- liams, third trumpet, Purcell. Jack Weech does a smooth job crooning all the ballads while Joe Hogan gives on the " scats. " The reed section, five strong, is well known for their technique and phrasing on such tunes as " Sleepy Time Gal. " Making up the sa. sec- tion are: Erskine Hill, first alto. Stillwater: Tom Hara, third alto. Oklahoma City: Ben Bragg, baritone. Gushing; ' Vance Jennings, second tenor. Oklahoma City, and Ralph Hatley. fourth tenor, Muskogee. Erskine Hill directs the band musi- cally. It ' s his four beat " kick-ofF " that starts that music which we all have come to like so well. Page 436 First row, left to right: Belisle.

ROCHDALE HALL Officers of Rochdale Hall are president, Ida Rae Frankel; vice president, Joyce Belisle; secre- tary-treasurer, Mary Frances Webb, and floor representatives, Rosalee Moddrell and Jerry Dale. Organized in the summer of 1940. Rochdale Hall is now the only cooperative house operating on the campus. Several other similar establish- ments have disbanded, but after seven years Rochdale Hall continues to function as an inte- gral part of the University of Oklahoma housing. Highlighting the first semester ' s social activi- ties at the house was a dance given November 22. Chaperons were Mr. and Mrs. Truman Pouncey and Dr. and Mrs. S. W. Reaves. Officers of the house for the first semester were: president, Dewey Lee Gibson; vice pres- ident, Joy Walkingstick; secretary-treasurer, Mary Lou Allen, and floor representatives, Cor- rine Spiller and Joyce Belisle. Graduate coun- selor was Miss Sadie Harlan, graduate student in education. Graduate counselor for the second semester is Miss Levit Bollinger, graduate stu- dent in social work. Rochdale Hall, which is organized on a non- profit, self-supporting basis, houses about thirty girls. It gives an opportunity for women stu- dents to live, work and study in a democratic en- vironment while attending the university. It fos- ters self-reliance and personal initiative among the individual members. The house operates on a well-organized plan; everyone has a certain amount of work to do and everyone does her share. The house is governed by a council of five members and the graduate counselor. An ad- visory board consisting of faculty members, a representative of the Oklahoma Mothers ' Asso- ciation and the counselor of women. Miss Vir- ginia Reinecke, is responsible for approving rec- ommendations for membership in the house and for supervising the finances of the organization. Final approval for membership in the house is given by the council whose members are elected by a majority vote of the resident membership of the house. Open to upperclass women students and to freshman women who receive special permission from the counselor of women, the house pro- motes fellowship and scholarship as well as propagating the principle of cooperative living. Members of the house are encouraged to make suggestions for improvements in the management of the household which would contribute to the health, well-being and scholastic achievement of the entire membership.

At that time, a group of juniors and seniors, realizing the dearth of school spirit, conceived the idea of starting a pep club which would have for its purpose the inciting of school spirit in the student body of the University. Casting about for ways of increasing the school spirit, the organizers hit on the idea of building a large bonfire on the night before a football game and then gathering around it to sing the school songs until the fire had died down. The idea caught on and the numbers in- creased with each gathering. The Club continued to be active throughout the years and continued to grow. The Ruf-Neks conducted pep rallies around the huge bonfire the night before each home football game. They also snake-danced through the residential dis- trict that lies near and around the campus. Dur- ing the early years the Ruf-Neks saw to it that the freshmen attended all pep rallies and foot- ball games. The distinctive red shirt that is worn by the Ruf-Neks was adopted some time in the early twenties. It was felt that a uniform was needed so that the members coul d be recognized. In the early years of the war just ended, the Ruf-Neks were forced to go on an inactive status. Most of the members and prospective members had gone into the armed services and it was thought that the fostering of school spirit could not be carried on by the number available on the campus at that time. The Ruf-Neks were reorganized in the spring of 1945 by a group of former members. It was difficult to pick up the threads, but by the end of that semester the club had built a nucleus around which a greater membership could be built in the fall. During the football season, the Ruf-Neks once more took their place as the driving force of stu- dent pep. Bonfire rallies were revived and the Ruf-Neks also revived all of their other activi- ties. A large pledge class was started and by the end of the football season it had grown to a greater number than ever before. The practice of electing a queen was renewed, and accordingly Jeanne Vinson was elected Queen of the Ruf-Neks. She was crowned dur- ing the half time period of the Oklahoma-Ne- braska game by president Lewis Thompson. Membership in Ruf-Neks is open to all male students on the campus, second semester or above, who are interested in increasing school spirit and school loyalty among the students of Oklahoma University.

SIGMA ALPHA IDTA Sigma Alpha Iota is a national professional musical fraternity for women. It is the largest of its kind, with seventy-eight active chapters and a membership of over 16,000. It was founded at the University School of Music, Ann Arbor, Michigan, June 12, 1903. Alpha Iota chapter was established at the University of Oklahoma on May 12, 1929. Throughout its existence, Sigma Alpha Iota has maintained these same aims, standards and ideals: To form bodies of representative women who shall, by their influence and their musical interest, uphold the highest ideals of a musical education: to raise the standards of productive musical work among the women students of col- leges, conservatories and universities; to promote and dignify the musical profession, and to de- velop loyalty to the Alma Mater. Members are urged to develop their abilities in composition, public performance and teaching. The local chapter requires a two-point grade average, outstanding musical ability, and faculty recommendation before one is considered for membership. Projects of Sigma Alpha Iota include a stu- dent aid fund; chapter scholarships awarded under the auspices of chapter and schools; com- position contests for all American-born woman composers, and others for fraternity members exclusively. Publications include Pan Pipes, the quarterly magazine; a songbook, the Prospectus; a confi- dential bulletin, Pan ' s N.E.O., from the National Executive Office, and pledge, active and alum- nae chapter manuals. The badge is seven Roman gold pau pipes en- circled by a jeweled epplise bearing the letters " Sigma Alpha Iota " in gold on black enamel. The Sword of Honor, a tiny guard in the shape of a sword, is given to a select few of the frater- nity members who have shown they possess ex- cellent musical ability and have maintained high rank for at least two years in the activities of the fraternity. The open motto is " Vita brevis, Ars longa ' (Life is short but Art is long). To be eligible for membership, a woman stu- dent must be enrolled in the College of Fine Arts, be recommended by the faculty and show excellence in scholarship and musical ability.

Blelack, Pricett UNIVERSITY PLAYERS The University Players is an organization composed of students who have played in or worked back stage on five or more major pro- ductions. Many former members, such as Van Heflin, Eric Rhodes. Muriel Monsel Bremner. and Amzie Strickland, have been successful on the professional stage, in the movies, or over th radio. This year, for the first time, the Players pub- lished a weekly news bulletin giving information about local and national activities in the theatre. Plays have been taken to various cities over the state. During the winter " Night Must Fall " was presented in Anadarko. The major productions during the current sea- son were: " Kiss and Tell. ' " Uncle Harry. " " The Late George Apley. ' and " Paolo and Francesca. " In addition to working back stage, the players assist with the advertising, the ticket sales cam- paign and the securing of ushers. At the Annual Playhouse Banquet held late in the spring, recognition is given to all members of the Players for their accomplishments during the season. " Willips. " a take-off on the Holly- wood Oscars, are given. " Buffalo Masks " are awarded the outstanding students of the year. Some outstanding studio productions were given during the year. They include " Night Must Fall, " directed by John Kennedy: " The Silver Chord, " directed by Anita Randall; " Dulcy, " directed by Madeline Dougherty. Some of the one-acts were: " Commission in London " by Grayce Cowell: " Mazir " by Lucille Benedict; " Fragment of a Prologue by Lonny Chapman; " Will O ' the Wisp " by Dawn Havis; and " The Threshold " by Barbara Plomondon. One-act plays played a prominent part in the productions for the University Players the sec- ond semester. Almost every member had a chance to work on some different phase of every play. Besides the actors and directors, there was a stage manager and someone in charge of lights, properties, publicity and the house and program. There were also several three-act plays. On March 13th. " Private Lives " was presented and was directed by Anita Randall. I ter that month, on the 28th and 29th, the University Players presented " Hansel and Gretel " which was under the direction of John Kennedy. And on May seventh and eighth Madeline Dougherty directed " Hedda Gabler. " The experience gained by the members of Uni- versity Players proves invaluable upon gradua- tion.

Dewey Lee Gibson; Secretary, Ramona Rollins; Treasurer. La Verna McMennamy: Historian. Ruth Lett: Associate Director, Mary Joyce Norwood: and Director, Vaughn Smith. The Methodist Student Movement is the Methodist Church at work in the college com- munity seeking, through organized fellowship in Methodist colleges and through Wesley Foun- dations at state and independent colleges, to pro- vide for the spiritual, moral, and social needs of the students. Wesley Foundation presents the opportunity for students to also reach the emotional and re- ligious maturity that is necessary for personal happiness and for Christian citizenship. A program to meet such needs for over 2,600 Methodist students must be e.xtensive and versa- tile. The Wesley Foundation, in addition to a traditionally full Sunday program, offers many opportunities during the week for religious edu- cation, recreation, and meditation. The Sunday activities include Church School, morning wor- ship with Rev. Phil Deschner, afternoon open house, where people enjoy various games and activities. Dine-a-mite hour with supper pre- pared by the students, group singing, forum in which issues of the dav are discussed, and ves- pers, which is the most popular part of all Wes- ley Foundation activities and which has been called " The only quiet place in college. " Week day activities include the New Fron- tiersmen, week-end parties and outings, monthly council meetings, a mid-week discussion group, a vesper service on Wednesday evening, Wesley Players. The Methodist Federation for Social Action, and Kappa Phi organization for Metho- dist women. Because there are so many students on the campus, the young married people of Wesley Foundation sponsor a nursery which is open daily for the children of parents who attend school or work. The McFarlin Memorial Methodist Church is the home of Wesley Foundation. On the second floor of this beautiful church is located the Wes- ley Foundation Center, which includes two of- fices, a beautifully decorated lounge and assem- bly room, the R. E. L. Morgan Memorial Library and on the third floor is a gymnasium. The church is always open for use by the stu- dents and has become a favorite meeting place for all members of the Wesley Foundation. Af- ter graduation, memories of the days spent there play an important part in the student ' s reminis- cence. Page 441 First roir, left to riyht: Gijiiuham, Re cker, Schiefer, Smith, Dickinson.

WOMEN ' S LEAGUE Women ' s League, organized in 1941. embodies the promotion of the social and educational wel- fare of all coeds who are not affiliated with a sorority at the University. It has for its purpose " to serve the interests of women students unaffili- ated with a social fraternity at the University of Oklahoma; to promote their participation in cam- pus activities; to offer them a program of social, recreational and educational opportunities; to serve as a clearing house for their individual housing problems; and to develop the loyalty of these women to their alma mater by giving them a feeling of " belonging " through the participa- tion in University affairs. The Independent women enrollment, at one time, reached a peak of 1,770 woman students. This group also includes the Norman girls who are not members of any sorority on the Univer- sity campus. Realizing that the decrease in woman students was a direct result of a lack of housing, the wel- fare committee, headed by June Riggs, attempted to attain better housing conditions for women at the University. Although the appeal was unsuc- cessful, it went as far as the State Board of Re- gents for Higher Education, and showed educa- tional groups throughout the state that woman students were interested in bettering their own welfare. Social activities which included informal dances given with the IMA. a reception for all independents at OU and from other state uni- versities during the national ISA convention, and a Jeans Jamboree, were under the direction of Sudie Grantham. The Women ' s League formal, which was attended by over five hundred stu- dents, was called the " social success " of the year and plans are being made now for an even bigger and better one in 1947, A date bureau, a cooperative venture between the Women ' s League and the IMA. proved a successful impetus to social activities. Christie Daugherty supervised this activity, so well re- ceived by everyone. Miss Marguerite Smith, assistant counselor of women, remained an invaluable aid through the failures as well as the successes of the organiza- tion. Women s League is now a nationally recog- nized organization, for it became a member of the National Independent Student Association during 1947. This undoubtedly is one of the big achievements of the year and will prove even more valuable for all OU independents in the future. Page 442 First row, lelt to right: Boyd, Hazen. Cullen, Chambers.

Marks and Key Boyd, treasurers. Miss Margaret Fisher and Ted Ledeen are the staff secretaries of the YWCA and YMCA. respec- tively. Carol Poison is the able office secretary. The annual Y all-school mixer freshened the frosh and refreshed the upperclass students by furnishing fun, food and fellowship. The mixer was held in the stadium this year, and was at- tended by 3,000 students. The Y lounge, in the Union, serves the Jekyll- and-Hyde purpose of a quiet study as well as a place for gaiety, meetings and coke dates. Up- perclass and freshman clubs hold their weekly meetings in the lounge. Social functions of the Y. in addition to the mixer, included membership parties, a listening party for those who didn ' t attend the Dallas game, the weekly coffee hour, and the gala Christmas festivities. The World Student Service Fund, with Dor- othy Prier serving as chairman, was under Y sponsorship. House-to-house and individual can- vassing netted a total of more than $1,000 for the drive. Money obtained went to helping for- eign students. Otto Borch. former Danish re- sistance worker and present traveling secretary for the WSSF, made an appearance here in con- nection with this drive. Another outstanding speaker obtained through the Y organizations was Dr. R. Z. Koo. who has worked among students in China. Miss Joyce Roberts, delegate to the World Student Chris- tian Federation meeting in Switzerland last sum- mer, was on the campus during October and ad- dressed a joint meeting of the freshman and upperclass clubs. The r ace relations committee was instrumental in bringing Miss Ada Lois Sipuel. principal figure in a court fight for admittance of Negro students to the Universiyt. to the campus. The National Assembly of the Student Chris- tian Association was held in Urbana, 111., during December, 1946, and January, 1947, Twelve OU delegates attended. Religious Emphasis Week, sponsored by the inter-religious council under the auspices of the Y groups, was held in February. Representa- tives of every faith were available for addresses in the campus residences. The YMCA and the YWCA function jointly and offer to each student, regardless of religious affiliation, guidance for development in spiritual, educational and social life. Emphasis is laid on individual participation in Y programs. Page 443 First Row, c f to right: Chester L. Francis (Director), Renegar. Penney. Green. Kerner. Kennedy. Wilson. Madden. Bowers.

MEN ' S GLEE CLUB The Men ' s Glee Club returned to pre-war status in the fall of 1946 with over 100 men try- ing out to become members of the organization. These tryouts represented nearly every school on the campus. The men with the best voices are selected for work in the organization, which con- sists of the club proper and two quartets com- posed of men within the group. The present club is made up of over ninety per cent of non- music majors. Rehearsals are usually held three nights weekly with an additional rehearsal with the Girls Choral Club once a week when working VARSITY MENS QUARTET Left to right: Harris. Penney. Logan. Fuller. on such important activities as the annual Christ- mas choral festival. In the past, special tours have been made by the Men ' s Glee Club, including a tour one year to New York City, where special recognition of the group was made by Fred Waring. The director, Chester L. Francis, is associate professor of music, and has a well established choral record throughout America. Mr. Francis is a graduate of Northwestern University. He is constantly in demand throughout the concert and contest season as a festival guest conductor and judge. While teaching in high school, his choral groups won much national recognition in concert, contest and radio. The Glee Club began the concert season by singing at the Homecoming ' Variety Show. Fred Waring ' s song, " OK, Oklahoma " was featured on this program for the first time since the war. The Christmas Concert was the next event for the club, which was followed by numerous out- of-town engagements including a six-day trip over the state during the first week in April. The Glee Club also sang at the Southwestern Divi- sion of the Music Educators ' National Confer- ence, which was held at Tulsa in March. The concert season was ended in May, at which time the Glee Club, with the University A Cappella Choir, gave its annual spring concert. Page 444 First row. left to right: Endicott. Brewer. Sibley.

WOMEN ' S CHORAL CLUB The Women ' s Choral Club is an all-Univer- sity organization which rehearses four times weekly. Its purpose is to provide enjoyment for those who like to sing. The present officers are: Jane Sibley, presi- dent; Jayne Hollis, vice president; Mattie Lee Culver, secretary; Catherine Stewart, treasurer; Mary Anne Sullivan and Mary All Bridal, li- brarians. Violet Brady is the accompanist. The organization is under the direction of Miss Maurine Timmerman. assistant professor of mu- sic education. Miss Timmerman completed her undergraduate work at the University of Minne- sota, and received the degree, master of science, with a major in music education, at the Univer- sity of Idaho. She was a pupil of Karl Gehr- kens. Peter Dykema. Archie Jones, Rollin Pease, John Kuypers, Vladimir BakaleinikofF, and oth- ers. Before coming to the University of Okla- homa she taught in the schools of Minnesota and Wisconsin. For three years she served in the WAVES, where in addition to her regular du- ties she directed many musical activities. Christmas kept the Choral Club very busy. They represented the cathedral scene in the pag- eant given by the Y. W. C. A. A few days later, together with the Men ' s Glee Club and the Uni- versity A Cappella Choir, they gave the annual Christmas Music Concert. This began and ended with the combined choruses and included the different choirs singing the lovely old Christ- mas carols, several new ones, lullabies, and some of the more pretentious works. The Women ' s Choral Club also furnished much of the music for the annual Christmas Dance Recital, given by the Orchesis Club and the entire club gave a short program preceding " The Juggler of Notre Dame. " The spring schedule included a recital in Holmberg Hall and singing for the Synchronized Swimmers. WOMEN ' S GHORAL GLUB TRIOS First row, left to right: Heard, Stewart, Weir. Second roiv: Endicott.

Francis, associate professor of music, has gained much recognition during the year. The choir re- hearses five days each week and has averaged one performance a week since its organization in September. Mr. Francis, who came to the University in September. 1946. has an outstanding record in vocal music. He was director of the famed Clas- sen High School chorus in Oklahoma City for nine years, and led the Comet chorus to a posi- tion of national importance. Mr. Francis has studied with some of the most well known choral conductors in America, and has been able to mold the group into one of the most outstanding singing organizations in the state of Oklahoma. The repertoire ranges from selections from the early church music and classics of Brahms, Bach, Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninoff and others, to mod- ern compositions by Cain and Fred Waring. The choir, with the Women ' s Choral Club and Men ' s Glee Club, presented the annual Christ- mas Concert in Holmberg Hall for the first time in four years, which was one of the outstanding musical programs of the year. The program was highlighted by the choir ' s rendition of Fred War- ing ' s " Twas the Night Before Christmas. " In January, the choir sang a concert for the Ma- sonic Consistory at Guthrie, and it was so well received that the choir returned in March for another program. The A Cappella Choir is one of the largest or- ganized singing groups in the state. The choir gave an hour demonstration and concert in Feb- ruary which was the highlight of the Church Music Conference held at the University. The concert season was ended in May when the group gave its annual Spring Concert. The choir, planning to continue its work next year, will give " Requiem " by Faure, along with the requested programs and concerts over the state. Page 446 First row, e f to right: Vicklund, Ham.

" D " CLUB This year ' s officers of the O Club are: Joe Richardson, president: Basil Sharp, vice president: Al Vogel, secretary-treasurer; and Frank Crider and John Jacobs, sponsors. The O Club is the honorary athletic organiza- tion of the University of Oklahoma and is com- posed of varsity athletes who have lettered in their respective sports here at the University. Due to the war, the O Club was inactivated for a year, but it was reorganized in October of 1944. Its activities, however, have been limited because of abrupt changes and unavoidable cir- cumstances. Now. with the cooperation of the returning lettermen of previous years and the new members, the O Club has regained its pre- war standing. The club was formed for the purpose of en- couraging an interest in athletics and inspiring other athletes to qualify for membership. It also hopes to influence high school athletes to choose the University as their alma mater by sponsoring the state track and field events, thereby acquaint- ing visitors with the University and the campus. As the membership is limited to lettermen. the members ' names are familiar on the campus and throughout the state. For example, Joe Golding. Jr., Merle Dinkins, Jim Tyree. Plato Andros. and Jim Mitchell, all of whom played in the fabulous Army-Oklahoma game at West Point, or such men as Gerald Tucker. Paul Courtey. Kenneth Pryor. and Jack Landon. of basketball fame, are all active members of the O Club. Many other members, such as Clarence A. Vicklund, Ed Ham, Bone Baker, Basil Sharp, Bud Baer, Don Buelow, John Canaris, Myrle Greathouse, Boyd Bibb, Johnny Chyz and Warren Lehman, have had a colorful athletic career at the University of Oklahoma. The O Club also functions for the benefit of all athletes by bringing a closer relationship be- tween the University Athletic Council and the athletes. The O Club has a representative on this council. Belonging to the O Club is an honor and a merit any University athlete is proud to hold. It is a goal set to attain the best qualities and the maximum possibilities of any player. The sponsors. Frank Crider and John Jacobs, two outstanding lettermen in their own days, have brought with them experience and strong guidance which every O Club member is eager to follow. The O Club has been the inspiration of many young athletes, and it hopes and intends to carry this on in the future. Paae 447 Firft roic. lc[t to riy if. Weber. Loper. Heancy. Kerr, Jackson.

PAT ' S CDUNCIL The officers of St. Pat ' s Council are: Presi- dent, Ray G, Loper; Vice President. Kendall Garms; Secretary, Betty Jo Kerr; Treasurer. Bob Heaney. St. Pat s Council is the governing body of the " Engine School " and is so named because St. Patrick is, by legend, the patron saint of all engi- neers. To be a member of St. Pat ' s Council is one of the highest honors that the Engineers be- stow, and only those men who have the best in- terest of the school, the Club, and its activities at heart become members. The Executive Committee of the Council con- sists of the officers of the Club and the Editor of The Sooner Shamrock. Membership includes one representative from each separate school in the College of Engineering, and one representa- tive from each honorary engineering organiza- tion on the campus, the Business Manager of The Sooner Shamrock, and the chairmen in charge of the various activities of the Club. These chairmen include the Open House. Dance, Show, Banquet, Coronation, and Publicity Chairman, As with the Engine Club the co- sponsors of the Council are J. W. Keeley and V. E. Willoughby. The Council is probably the primary factor contributing towards the Engine School function- ing as a unit of single aim and purpose. By the proper planning of the St. Pat ' s celebration, the Open House, and other events, such as annual picnics, the Council keeps the Engineers in the position of the only organized College on the campus with any lasting traditions. Come cele- bration time when the whole University really becomes aware that the Engineers are not merely book worms but rather men able to put their abilities and talents to work — look toward the council members to be in the midst of the fun. When a man has received a St. Pat ' s Council shingle it shows he has attended all the meetings of the Council for two semesters and has done some really constructive work for the Engine School and for himself. He helps himself by gaining invaluable experience in assuming re- sponsibilities of a similar type to those which any man, sooner or later, takes up in his job or com- munity life. The goal of any good Engineer is to work with his fellow Engineers and Professors to such a degree that he is recognized for his abilities and elected to the responsible position of " Member of St, Pat ' s Council ' where he ' ll have ample op- portunity to keep the Engineering College the best and most respected College on the Campus. Page 448 LK D T Loyal Knights of Old Trusty is the mysterious organization which has been haunting curious University students for the past 27 years. These men who wear the black robes are seldom seen but they represent an active and old tradition of the University. This secret order has won the respect of all engineers and receives faculty and University approval. LKOT was founded in 1920 on the campus of Oklahoma University. That year six engineers banded together and formed this se- cret order to uphold the traditions of the College of Engineering and to pay homage to the patron Saint of Engineers, St. Pat. During this time it has served the Engineering School in every pos- sible way. but above all by keeping alive its cher- ished traditions. Since the founding of LKOT only some two hundred and eighty members have been awarded this, the highest honor at- tainable by an Engineering student. A member is not chosen for scholastic or social standing, but because he has given voluntarily and unsel- fishly his time and effort for the promotion of Engineering activities and because he has shown by his actions that he holds the Engineering School and all it stands for above everything else. The purpose of the order is to promote all Engineering activities here on the campus. Mem- bership comes as a reward for outstanding work in connection with Engineering activities. No public esteem is offered a member, as he is only known to his fellow members by a number given him. on his initiation, and by his name on a large plaque in the Engineering building when he graduates. On this honor roll are engraved the names of Engineers in all fields of industry in many countries. Some are famous, some are just good fellows, but in general the ring of LKOT is found on the fingers of men who are leaders in their profession and in their com- munity. There are LKOT signs all around the campus at the entrances to University buildings and Uni- versity houses but these men are rarely seen in their black robes except when they are firing Old Trusty. Old Trusty is fired early in the morning of St. Patrick ' s Day and on other special occa- sions. Old Trusty is carefully guarded the year around so that it can be fired at this time. The members of LKOT take an active part in the plans for the Engineering Open House, Dance, Stage Show, and Banquet and feel re- sponsible for seeing that each celebration is a credit to the College of Engineering and to St. Pat. LKOT has shown that it is pledged to work constructively for the University and has won the respect and approval of all. Page 449 First cow, left to fight: Schcr. Rcudelhubcr. Haves, Weber.

Today, it is recognized as one of the Engineering Found- er ' s Societies. The objects of the Institute are the advancement of chemical engineering in the- ory and practice and the maintenance of a high professional standard among its members. Student chapters of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers are established by vote of Council on petition from the student group in the Chemical Engineering Department and spon- sored by a member of the Institute on the teach- ing staff in the department. Thus far there are eighty-two chapters in the United States and Canada, the last one being the chapter at North- western University founded in 1944. The University of Oklahoma Student Chapter of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers was organized in 1935 for the purpose of ac- quainting student members with the various ap- plications of chemical engineering in industry, providing student members with personal con- tacts in a number of representative industries, and to promote the exchange of technical infor- mation through the medium of personal contacts. Any engineering student who is interested in chemical engineering is eligible for membership. Regular meetings of the student chapter are held monthly, during the academic year. The pro- grams feature outstanding speakers, representing a wide variety of industries that employ chemi- cal engineers and practice the science of chemi- cal engineering. Student members become eligible for a Junior Membership after graduation providing that the candidate is actively engaged in chemical engi- neering work or pursuing graduate studies in chemical engineering. There are now over six thousand Active. Associate, and Junior Mem- bers of the American Institute of Chemical En- gineers. Each year the Institute conducts competition on a student problem under the direction of the Committee on Student Chapters. Any chemical engineering student is eligible for the A. Mc- Laren White Award and prizes of $100. $50. and $25 are awarded to the students submitting the three best solutions to the problem. Officers of the chapter this year were: Frank O. Reudelhuber. President: Richard M. Clarke. Vice President: Nancy M. McClintock. Secre- tary: Elzie N, Hayes, Treasurer; Edward Weber, Representative to St. Pat ' s Council: and Laurance S. Reid. Faculty Sponsor.

The student branch of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers is exactly what its name implies. Its activities include most of those of the Professional Founder Society and its whole program is aimed at training the student engineer for a professional status and to have a profes- sional attitude. High points of the student branch program include informative talks to the organization by well known engineers on cur- rent topics and new devices and processes, study of technical material through the medium of the Society ' s monthly magazine and the Society ' s technical library and student competition in pres- entation of papers and talks. These activities are the mainstays of the professional founder so- ciety and their acquaintance enables the student engineer to be able to actively participate in his professional organization after he has finished his schooling and has taken on a professional status. In order to foster competitive student partici- pation in engineering fields, special awards are offered through the Society. The largest of these is the Charles T. Main Award which is $150 and an engraved certificate from the So- ciety. This award is presented to the student who presents the best paper on a subject chosen yearly by the Society. The subject for 1947 was " The Engineering Method — Its Value and Lim- itations. " The papers are judged by the Soci- ety ' s Board of Honors and Awards. Other So- ciety Awards made yearly are the $25 Under- graduate Award and the $25 Postgraduate Award, these being made to the student present- ing the best paper in his respective classification. Annually a meeting is held for each geograph- ical group of Student Branches. Each Student Branch is entitled to compete for cash prizes which are awarded for the presentation of pa- pers in competition with the official delegates of other Student Branches. These annual meet- ings, known as Group Conferences, provide a program of papers on technical, economic or re- lated subjects, banquets and luncheons, visits to plants and industrial installations, inspection of laboratories on the campus where the meeting is held and a dance for attending members. The Group Conference is in reality a student conven- tion for the exchange of ideas and acquaintances. Page 451 WiS V ' ' VMIjK Fint rou-, iV t lo nyht: Keely, Kerr, Fears, Finley, Roberts, Cornett.

In 1922 the organization became affiliated with the American Society of Civil Engineers. The Society is the oldest national engineering society in the United States. It was instituted in 1852 for the purpose of advancing engineer- ing and architectural knowledge and practice, maintaining a high professional standard among its members, encouraging intercourse between men of practical science, and establishing " a central point of reference and union for its members. " The purpose of the Student Chapter is to af- ford the beginnings of professional associations. The chapter provides an opportunity for the student civil engineers to meet and know each other, to develop ideas, to work together for com- mon benefit and experience. To accomplish these purposes, the Chapter has five or si.x formal meetings each semester. At each meeting regular business matters are de- cided upon and a program is presented. The programs generally consist of films on subjects of technical interest to civil engineers or speakers chosen from the leading men in the profession. In addition to the regular meetings, various field and inspection trips are made to points of engi- neering interest. The officers for 1946-47 are: Willis W. Fin- ley. President: J. Kent Roberts, Vice President; Robert J. Elliot, Secretary; Jack B. Cornett, Treasurer, and John H. Kinnaird. St. Pat ' s Rep- resentative. The Faculty Sponsor is J. Ray Matlock. Two field trips were made during the fall semester. Six representatives of the local chap- ter attended the national fall meeting of the American Society of Ci il Engineers held at Kansas City in October. Later that month, fif- teen students went to Fort Smith, Arkansas, for a joint meeting of the Oklahoma and Mid-South sections. This mee ting was attended by profes- sional engineers from Oklahoma and Arkansas as well as students from the universities in the two states. In addition to the more formal activities, the chapter is responsible for the civil engineering exhibit at the Engineers ' Open House. Through- out the war years the A.S.C.E. membership con- sisted almost entirely of Navy trainees but since then it has gone back to its normal functions and standards and now houses the civilian students of civilian engineering.

Owens, first semester, and Mau- rice Lewis, second semester: Vice President. Ray Loper and Rod McDaniel; Secretary. Don Eley and Bill Vestal; Treasurer. Maurice Lewis and John Cassidy: St. Pat ' s Representative. Pete Cawthon and Bob Newman: Sophomore Repre- sentative. John Burba: Junior Representative, ' Walt Dobbs; and Faculty Sponsor. Professor W. F. Cloud. All students enrolled in the College of Engi- neering whose major course is in petroleum engi- neering are eligible for membership in the P.E. Club. The club has increased in both member- ship and activity with returning war veterans en- tering the school in large numbers. The number of students now active in the club has more than tripled since last year. The primary objective of the P.E. Club is to promote the interest and welfare of the petroleum engineering school and that of its student body. Each year, under the sponsorship of the club and its faculty adviser, nationally known experts in the petroleum engineering field are invited to speak to the club members at regular meetings on subjects of current interest. Many of these speakers are former students of this school. The club is sponsored by W. F. Cloud, who uses this medium to get acquainted with the students, and to bring before them information that would not normally be covered in classrooms. In addition to this, the club promotes fellowship of the stu- dent body by various social activities and enter- tainment at the regular meetings. The petroleum engineers ' club is affiliated with the national organization of the American Insti- tute of Mining and Metallurgical Engineers. This entitles each club member to become a stu- dent associate of the " Institute " with all the privileges and benefits under that classification. Members of the club represent approximately 25 states, Canada, and several South American countries. Today, the club has grown to its pro- portions of pre-war day, when it was difficult to find a place with a seating capacity great enough to hold the thousand students who attended the meetings. The club elects a faculty sponsor and five offi- cers each semester. This group acts as the exec- utive committee. Representation on the commit- tee is completed by elected representatives of the junior, sophomore and freshman classes. Page 453 First row, left to right: Blunck. Sandoval, Bogart.

PICK AND HAMMER Officers of the Pick and Hammer Club for the first semester were: Willis Alderman, president; John Warren, vice president; and Phyllis Dale, secretary-treasurer. For the second semester the following were officers: John Warren, presi- dent; Hugh Hardy, vice president; June McFar- land, secretary; and Virginia Rutledge. treasurer. Dr. E. L. Lucas has been sponsor of the club since 1945 and has given much time and effort towards its reactivation after the war. Dr. Charles N. Gould, in 1903. directed the founding of the first geology club to be formed in connection with the University of Oklahoma. The founding took place at Vines Branch in the Arbuckle Mountains when a field trip decided to organize a permanent club. Ralph Shervin, who later became head of the American Alumi- num Chemists, presided at this first meeting. The name " Rock Club " was selected, Charles P. Kirk was elected president and Chester A. Reeds was elected secretary. Other charter members included Minnie Rose Gould. Rose Carlet, Pierce Larkin. Charles A. Long. John Merkle. Willard Garden. Julian Field, and William H. Law. Af- ter Dr. Gould resigned from the University in 1908, the club continued electing a member of the faculty as a sponsor and advisor. In 1924 the name " Rock Club was changed to " Pick and Hammer Club. After this unique beginning frequent meetings were held and the members presented geological articles and papers of interest to the group. The club was inactive during the war years but reorganized in the spring of 1945. Since the reactivation, membership has increased each sem- ester. There were 84 active members during the first semester. 1946-47. Membership is open to all students with nine or more hours credit in geology who are enrolled in the School of Geol- ogy. Geological Engineering, or Petroleum Engi- neering, and to all graduate students of these schools. The purpose of the club is to sponsor talks by persons outstanding in geology or related fields and to afford the students interested in these fields an opportunity to meet together. These talks have drawn large attendances and have proved to be a great stimulus to student interest in geology. The lectures are generally open to the public as well as to members. There have been no regular meeting dates as meetings are largely scheduled in order to obtain speakers, but an average of six meetings are held each semester. An annual spring banquet ends the vear ' s activities. Page 454 First row. left to right: Cralle, Mycr. Taylor, Olsen, Doner, Dagefoerde, Roop.

PI TAU SIGMA Pi Tau Sigma, honorary Mechanical Engi- neering Fraternity, has had a busy year. A more active organization than was possible during the war years is the result. It is the aim of the fraternity to present a closer relationship between the faculty and stu- dents in Mechanical Engineering, particularly among underclassmen; to foster and encourage high moral and scholastic achievements; and to provide recognition for outstanding students. This is accomplished by sending letters to Fresh- man and Sophomore Mechanical Engineering students, giving encouragement and calling at- tention to the advantage of superior scholastic work. As a token of scholastic achievement. Pi Tau Sigma presents an annual award to the highest ranking Sophomore Mechanical Engi- neer. The chapter also cooperates with the Stu- dent Branch of the A.S.M.E. and in general serves to advance the Mechanical Engineering profession. Members are selected from the Junior and Senior classes of Mechanical Engineering on the basis of scholastic standing, leadership, person- ality and faculty and member ratings. In the fall the well dressed pledge wore a royal blue open end wrench tied with a dainty two-inch wide red ribbon. His accessory was a matching blue box filled with candy and gum for " Members Only. The wrench is made by the pledge with the skill that he has acquired as a Mechanical Engineer. Fifteen pledges were initiated into the Frater- nity November 7, 1946. A change in the tradi- tional banquet, held in honor of the new mem- bers, was made this year. In the place of the banquet, an early breakfast was given in the Woodruff Room of the Union, Keys were given to new members and officers were elected. Officers for the first semester were; William R. Olsen, President; Otto Doner, Vice Presi- dent; Glenn P. Meyer, Secretary: Walter Cralle, Treasurer; and N, C. Dageforde, St. Pat ' s Rep- resentative. Last fall members pooled their labor and re- sources with the other Mechanical Engineering organizations to produce a float in the Home- coming parade. The weiner manufacturing plant won honorable mention in the contest. Twenty of the members of Pi Tau Sigma will be in the June graduating class. This is the largest group of members graduating since the beginning of the war. Nearly all of this group are former members of the Armed Forces with outstanding war records.

SIGMA GAMMA EPSILDN Founded March 30, 1915, at the University of Kansas, Sigma Gamma Epsilon is a national hon- orary fraternity whose purpose is the promotion of a national society devoted to the advancement of the Earth Sciences. The Earth Sciences in- clude geology, petroleum engineering, mineral- ogy, paleontology, ceramics, etc. The Gamma chapter was organized at the University of Okla- homa late in 1915, and has remained active up to the present, The number of members at that time was 15. At present there are 51 active mem- bers, A large majority of the geology professors are members, and are actively engaged in the work of Sigma Gamma Epsilon. Doctor C. E. Decker, professor of geology and paleontology, is the sponsor of the Gamma chap- ter. He has been for the past 21 years most helpful in the organization. Between the years of 1924-1932, Doctor Decker was the national president, which was a great honor to himself and to the chapter. He was also national secre- tary-treasurer from 1918 to 1924. The national publication of Sigma Gamma Ep- silon is the Compass. The Compass is published quarterly, and contains interesting and beneficial articles written by the various individuals of the fraternity in the field of their specialties. In geology and allied subjects, the literature is the basis of its progress, and the literature is greatly dependent on publications such as the Compass. Being an honorary organization, Sigma Gamma Epsilon has certain scholastic qualifica- tions for membership. These are simply fourteen hours of credit in geology, and an over-all " B " grade average. The fraternity sponsors a two-day field trip each semester. The areas for these field trips are selected by a vote of the chapter. Oklahoma and the surrounding states offer a great variety of geological phenomena which are of interest to all Earth Scientists, These field trips serve to acquaint the members with the actual experi- ence of observing the different phenomena with the guidance of a geologist thoroughly familiar with the locality. At each regular meeting on every other Wed- nesday, Sigma Gamma Epsilon sponsors a lec- ture by an authority in some particular phase of the Earth Sciences. The officers of last semester were: H, A, Gar- aas, President; Willis Alderman, Vice President; Beverly Polk, Secretary; Bill Rogers, Treasurer; Kenneth Bowen, Pledgemaster; Robert Dewey, Reporter. Second semester officers are: Jack H. Vestal, President; Milton May, Vice President; Ralph Disney, Secretary; Harry Japp, Treasurer. Page 456 First row, left to right: Doner. Olsen.

Recording Secretary: Bill Olsen, Treasurer; R. A. Barbero, Pledge Master; D. J, Pate. St. Pat ' s Representative: and Joe Keeley has served as the faculty advisor. Sigma Tau was founded February 22. 1904, at the University of Nebraska to recognize out- standing scholarship and activities in the field of engineering, Mu chapter was installed at the University of Oklahoma, May 13, 1916, and is the oldest honorary engineering organization on the campus. The requirements for membership in Sigma Tau are scholarship, practicality and sociability. These requirements were chosen on the basis that, aside from good health, the three qualities considered by employers as most necessary to a successful career are, first, character; second, judgment: and third, technical training. The success of the members of Sigma Tau in the years following its founding have borne witness to the importance of these qualifications in select- ing the engineers to be honored by membership in the fraternity. Each member of Sigma Tau must rank schol- astically in the upper third of the juniors and seniors in the College of Engineering. Thus membership is practically limited to those engi- neers who have better than a 2.0 average. In addition, each prospective member must be unan- imously approved by the active members and must have the approval of at least three faculty members. The aims of Sigma Tau are to further engi- neering education by encouraging the students to greater effort and to promote fellowship among the men training for the engineering profession. Mu chapter has planned its program so as to follow these aims. The activities of Sigma Tau include smokers, breakfasts, and banquets. Mr. Sheldon L. Ster- ling, of the Oklahoma City Chamber of Com- merce, was the speaker at the banquet on Jan- uary 9, 1947. The Pyramid is the official publication of the fraternity. In addition to belonging to and being active in Sigma Tau, most of the members are equally ac- tive in one or more other engineering fraterni- ties as well as many activities on the campus. They are truly the outstanding men of the Col- lege of Engineering and many have proved this in their success in their fields after graduation. Page 457 First roif. Ictt to right: Killian. Vickhuid.

TAU BETA P I Officers for this year were: Ralph A. Herz- mark and Richard Hillyer, President; Gene Kil- lian. Vice President; Clarence Vicklund, Re- cording Secretary; Eugene Levering and Wil- liam Forney, Corresponding Secretary; Jack Vestal and Pete Cawthon, Treasurer; Charles Axelrod, Cataloguer and Pledge Master; Yale Stillwell, St. Pat ' s Representative; Clarence Vicklund. Delegate to National Convention, and Mr, J. Ray Matlock. Faculty Advisor. Tau Beta Pi, highest ranking among the hon- orary engineering fraternities, is the national as- sociation which gives recognition to under-grad- uate students in the college of engineering. Scholastic ability is not the sole attribute desired in men of Tau Beta Pi. however. Other quali- ties are considered equally important — those of character, leadership, honesty and the reputation of being a good fellow. Membership in Tau Beta Pi is the highest honor that can come to a student of engineering. Tau Beta Pi was founded in 1892 at Lehigh University. Now nationally organized and guided by an Executive Council boasting well- known men of science and engineering, over eighty chapters are coordinated for the purpose of fostering academic incentive, fellowship, and a spirit of liberal culture. Oklahoma Alpha Chapter was installed at O.U. on April 3. 1926. and has for over twenty years promoted this important work. The local chapter was represented at the Na- tional Convention held in Columbus. Ohio, in October. After the election of officers at the first meeting in the fall, the program for the year was launched. Regular meetings were held through- out the year. Get-together smokers were spon- sored previous to the election of new members proving worthwhile and successful. The Jan- uary initiation increased the numbers of the chapter by nineteen, and several others were ex- pected to become eligible during the second term. This year the chapter had the largest member- ship in its history, a result of the large veteran enrollment. The banquet held in honor of the initiates will long remain a pleasant memory. In February, new men were elevated to of- fices vacated by mid-term graduates, and plans were made for the spring term activities. A din- ner-dance was to be held, and a time was to be set for the annual picnic, an event which many brothers of Tau Beta Pi from past years still recall with pleasure. The key of Tau Beta Pi. a gold bent signify- ing strength and worth, is a mark of distinction wherever seen. The future of engineering prac- tice is molded by men like those who wear the Bent of Tau Beta Pi. Page 458 First row, left to right: Judson, Farrar. Mathews, Reiff, Fisher. Coleman.

ANTHONY CO What follows below is commonly known among the night life — and baser elements of this campus — as a Razz section. Having done my best with the main body of the book. I have turned over the reins to my advisor and counselor on the activities which have as yet failed to appear or have not yet been given sufficient credit in the libelous magazine com- monly known in higher society as the Covered Wagon. The honor of this column can only be at- tributed to the efforts and ears of the honorable Charles A. Bocheck. It is my understanding that his cohorts in this section are Mary McKinney and Mary Lou Hedley. If you have been fortunate enough to have been selected for space in this elite column, you may thank Bocheck. If you have not, you may thank some close-mouthed people or for a few of you, just plain good conduct on your own part. — The Editor To you who have read the Razz section of the 1942 Sooner, you may remember the fable concerning MaximilUan ' s famed words. " Goo. gopple. " We would explain that throughout his life people tried to attach a hidden meaning to his innocent words. Tiring of the mob, he went to Mexico. There again he met the same curious people who demanded to know the meaning of those words. Although Max meant no more than what he said, he was not be- lieved and was executed after his failure to give the demanded explanation. This fable is repeated to show that no matter how innocent a statement is meant, people will always try to find a hidden meaning. Throughout this section, when we say that a Kappa was seen in the City at night, it doesn ' t mean that she is a party girl out for a big time for she probably just missed the last inter- urban home and has stepped into one of the warmer spots to keep out of the cold evening air. It is our privilege to quote a letter found fluttering around one of the Kappa trash cans. We are only thankful that the wind happened to blow this letter to us at that time for we ' d never stoop so low as to gather information from such sources. We quote: " Dear Miss Pitt man — I am a cab driver here in Nor- SOONERS Meet Your Friends Relax and Visit at THE ANCHOR 123 East Main — NORMAN REFRESHING SOFT DRINKS A Pleasant Place for Both Women and Men Page 470 C.

If you want to go horseback riding and swimming you are welcome to the use of my ranch. " This could go on and on but out of the mercy in our hearts and the kind feeling toward humanity we have managed to censor the major portion of this letter. Barbara Peters has shown Delta Chi LARRY METZ the true color of a couple of his brothers. We wonder what words could have slipped from Barbara ' s luscious lips during those evening hours that could have caused her to be called to the tele- phone twice before Larry had departed. Those Delta Chis will do anything to help their brothers ' love life. Delta Chi pledge Jack Briggs pulled the boner of the year along fraternal lines. Shortly after mid- night. Bob Moii ' dy. Bill Estep, Emanuel Koronis and some more of the Delta Chi wheels were aroused from a peaceful slumber by a frantic call from an Oklahoma City jail. Very uncheerful, but thinking of the honor and reputation of Delta Chi. they pro- ceeded to gather all available Delta Chi cash and head for OC to bail delinquent Briggs from the cala- boose. Finding that Briggs had never been known to the local police, they spent hours of search via police radio and still failed to produce Briggs in any jail. Meanwhile, Briggs had an undisturbed night of sleep in the Delta Chi house. Norman Reynolds, erstwhile Phi Beta Kappa and SAE, is having a hard time trying to quit school. He knows the law school curriculum by heart now.

LESTER LLOYD, president of Lambda Chi. has been fighting a serious, determined battle with LOU GRESHAM of the Sigma Chi multitude. It seems that Gcesham needs an annex for the Sigma Chi half of the campus and Lloyd needs a house. Both have been spending a great deal of time around the Norman Courts on the weekends . . . they must be bidding on the Rental. NANCY RYGEL, Kappas bid to glamour fame, has discovered the secret sought by many a campus queen, including Pi Phi ' s ANN MARLAND. The secret . . . the only house on the campus where you can safely date five boys without causing an undue strain on friendship and brotherhood is the Sigma Chi. We wonder if this engagement was in any way a surprise to some of the pin throwing brothers. Question of the campus is whether Virginia Bixby actually took the trouble to chain the Phi Gam pin of Nibs Fite and replace it with that of Jack Hoopes ... or whether Jack just gave Nibs his pin and let the relationship between the Phi Gams and the Pi Phis go along a smooth course of love.

Under the direction of Mr. and Mrs. WiUiam Howard, the Norman studios soon began to cUck in big-time fashion. Despite the pooh-bahs that were heard quite often at the beginning it soon became obvious that here was an in- novation that would be permanent. Now the host of young people who flock to the studios are singing the praises of the classes and the results! Miss Nina Fritch. who came down from Oklahoma City to as- sume the Norman management role, has made many friends and we re sure the entire student body will recognize the value of this institution to their happiness and well-being. Yes. Arthur Murray Studios came . . . saw . . . and conquered. Moneer Rahhal. the kid with the car — and what a car — has finally come to the conclusion that even a custom-built Chrysler and diamond-studded wrist watches tossed in as trinkets do not make a love life smooth. Unable to find the name of the fickle cam- pus beauty, we can reach only one conclusion and that is that Moneer ' s activities as a lawyer, theatre operator and under-cover man keep him from devot- ing the necessary time to take that hike to the altar. " We pity Phi Delt DON BUELOW if his ro- mance continues to progress as beautifully as it has lately. It is a known fact that Susan Lovall, " well- to-do Theta " from McAlester, has that look in her eye, but those who know say they hope he has enough money to pay the bills. Sigma Nu BILL McWILLIAMS has been heard to say that he is ready to throw stones at the Kappa house. After weeks of figuring and a course in higher mathematics. Bill announced that he had been flutfed by four per cent of the KKG s. First it was his home town queen, ]ean Burnham, who bid Bill goodbye for Beta ' s social dog, jack Felber. Betty Smith followed suit as she took the better of two evils and decided to steady it with his fraternity brother. Bill Michaels. It ' s happened before, Bill. Better luck next time. Betty Lou " I hope you appreciated me ALSO " Lee takes the prize for the biggest BTO of all time. With the aid of her sleek blue Buick convertible, she has lured Bob Berry. Bob Ri:lei . Merle Dinkins. Jack Johnson. Ben Head, and Burton Woocf — plus a host of others that we don t know about — over to the Theta mansion. With graduation practically here. Betty Lou is having her problems. She may have to resort to the Sunbeam Home for social workers. Not to be outdone, the Pifis came through with SALLY BERRYHILL. who would grab at anything, and finally managed to go steady with SAE John Bingman. She dated about the campus with mad abandon in her little English car and left Donald Can field and Charlie Dresser weeping.

He hit an all-time low with Tri Delt June Hodge and Kappa Phyl Prigmorc. There are others who have been honored by Johnson, but these are most predominately in our minds at the present time. For further information you may ask the young la- dies in question, but we will lay odds their answers will be, " I just don ' t know what you ' re talking about. " Now or Never Week came in with a flourish and a few of the girls took the slogan to heart. DG GEORGE ANN COLE, who apparently has been off the deep end about Charles Selah since high school days, lost no time in dating him up for the entire weekend. The story behind the story is that TOWN TAVERN Varsity Corner WILEY W. BRYANT, JR. Owner JAMES LOGAN Manager Charles had asked George home with him for Christ- mas (he lives in Mississippi) and as far as anyone knows, he hasn ' t had a date with her since. Still better luck was had by Kappa Mai Hess, for she really took advantage of the opportunity and ended up steadying it with Beta ' s Keith Miller. Phi Gam Rush Chairman Dick Clements hasn ' t been devoting all of his time to fraternity pledging, as evidenced by the fact (or was it a pledge class?) that he spent a great deal of time with Theta Mary Lou Stewart ( Rush Chairman for KAT ) and Kappa Patty Hoover (who does the the same thing). The triangle has proved rather embarrassing at times, but I suppose they have a lot in common. Down Sigma Chi way, about December the 5th, was P.B. (Pin Bobbie) Day for one of the famous few, namely Chuck Spears, who had made numerous announcements previous to the above-named day. The Kappas laid wagers on the outcome and the odds were heavily against Chuck. December 5th came and went and Bobbie McCoy sported no white cross. Chuck retired to his boudoir, a beaten man. Jane Hollis took up the fight and set an M.G. (Marry Gordon ) Day for any time, the sooner the better, but she, too, was defeated as yet.

Phi Delt Prexy Bill Hanson was quite the gay dog for a good portion of the year but managed to find time to convince Kappa Phyl Prigmore that he was the one and only one for her, at least for awhile. Hardest hit in this love affair was Beta ' s Charlie Autry. who finally was forced to open his eyes and from the beginning seemed to enjoy the charms of Pifis V. Dodson. ' ANN MARLAND of the Pifis deserves special mention — the distinction of going with more Sigalfs than one would believe possible. Her most success- ful fluff was to Joe Laley — he ' s still wondering what happened. Editor ' s Note: It should read — the dis- tinction of going with more than one would believe possible — a few other fraternities managed to enjoy the company of Miss Marland.

The Sleep And Eat boys of 730 College were at their favorite pastime this year — throwing bigger and better parties. The first chance to do this was the Dallas weekend — the house went en masse. PAT O ' BANNON found a Texas cutie who ran him a stiff race. The times are rare when PAT is ever the first to fall out of any race. BOB BERRY tried not to be outdone by either and ended up at five o ' clock in the morning looking for more of the boys.

" The Sigma Nu ' s and the ATO ' s fought a rough battle over the privilege of hooking their heels over the Chi O ranch house porch rail.

Main Phone 417 personality of Bee-e-e-lee Doss, the old porch rail felt a constant turnover as the boys pulled the latch strings, took a look and rode on for greener pastures to stake their horses. This is not always the case, as VAL JACKSON seemed to have lassoed a young Texan some seven odd years ago and has failed to give the boy enough rope to look around to other objects. The Keener girls came up from Rio to add a little South American touch to the ranch and ended up by having a constant touch put on them by that Delt brother who seemed to be losing his wallet somewhere around the Delt annex, or maybe it is better known to some hopefuls as the Alpha Phi house. Jean " Lucky " Lucado and Bob Smith de- cided to carry out a good neighbor policy and every- thing went smoothly until " now or never week.

Starting out at the river with a couple of touches of Texas and much thinner pocket- books. Lucky and the other girls ended up the even- ing at Red ' s and Ed ' s. The sad part of the whole affair was that this unexpected expense came at the same time as the Chi Omegas ' decision to donate a few pesos to aid in the election of Bobby Craig so that she could reign over the campus low-life. 5ee- e-e- eee " I ' m from New Orleans " Doss managed to try the patience of the Chi Omega sisters and despite TULSA, OKLAHOMA college fashions are worn in every school town.

In fact, she ' s busy daily (and nightly) collecting a group of the best dates on campus.

Seems that Ed has been going with Tridelt ]oan Seneker — and doing quite well, too. But he just wasn ' t quite as fast as the rest of the chapter com- bined. They wanted something a little more definite than weekend dates and they definitely felt Joan was an asset. So while Ed stood uncomfortably by, they presented her with a Sig Ep sweetheart pin. Does this mean she ' s pinned to the whole chapter or does she have Ed in mind when she wears it or is it merely a safeguard to ward off any other possible pins? She isn ' t around to ask right now, but at any rate it ' s a mighty pretty pin. Spring and Hoover Wright are two things that seem to really go together.

Pruitt stopped im- mediately and started out in a discussion of the old times and how things should be. Needless to say, the boys returned to Norman poor , empty-handed, and certainly sadly wiser for their little escapade. The story has a happy ending — if anything could be happy after that — as they made it back for the party of the year. Pruitt ' s only comment was that it could have been better. How could the Pifi pledges be so mean on pledge- member day? How could they dare to come home like the members?

And on the subject of law, JOSEPH WAYNE QUINLAN. affectionately referred to as " Pender- gast of the Law School ' by those who know him best, devoted his time to pulling strings and gather- ing wandering sheep into the fold. Carbon copying the Master was one disciple, a BOBBIE PARK, an- other embryonic lawyer who couldn ' t see the light except as reflected in the words of Pendergast. An- other nickname tacked on Quinlan, an infamous nicknamer himself, was " Bingo " — this one in refer- ence to his concentrated, if political, attempts to gather an occasional coed and potential date into his flock, meanwhile making sly remarks when his well- meaning friends tried to do the same more openly. His attempts to Bingo led to as intricate a set of tri- angles, and other geometrical figures, as has been seen around the law barn in a long time. MARVIN HAMBRICK overheard phone conversations which make him the logical one to whom to refer for fur- ther information on Quinlan ' s activities.

Being re- ceived in such a friendly manner, and being hard to discourage anyway, Charlie lounged against the bandstand and chatted. The people were furious — after all. they d come there to hear Romberg play. Charlie sensed their growing antagonism and just to show his heart was in the right place, shouted at the top of his voice, " Well, come on Sig, old boy, play us a tune. " Sig did. And that would be the end of the story except that when he finally left the above-mentioned . . . party ... he heard a fire engine and insisted on seeing the fire.

Back in the early days before Oklahoma be- came a state, the only people using natural gas were those living close to sources of supply. This was largely due to lack of pipe line facilities.

His roommate, Jack uaboni. is getting married soon and his disser- tations on love keep poor Bill awake far into the night . . . Wait till the bride finds out her husband talks in his sleep . . . and wait till she hears the things he has to say! Sigma Nu has been thinking of sending Ralph Chiles to Dr. Anthony with all his troubles . . . First he was engaged to Ruthie Wimbish, Alpha Gam, then it was just going steady . . . suddenly both were foot-loose and fancy-free. Ralph, how- ever, was pining away with a broken heart and fi- nally convinced her that a steady arrangement would solve all the trouble. So far things are fine, but who ' s to say when she ' ll change her mind again? Phi Kap B ob Burns was in a stew about DG Mar- garet Killingsworth. After going steady with her for many months, he received the brush . . . for only a short while. It seems that after seeking solace from a number of party girls and some fast sales talk on how to redeem a lost love, Killy was back in the fold once more.

IOWA CITY, IOWA Page 550 Tridelt Barbara Shirley managed to thoroughly embarrass herself and her date the other night at Elmer ' s in Oklahoma City. While lingering over a second cup of coffee and paying full attention to her dates interesting (?) and constant flow of conversa- tion, Barbara failed to notice her foot was going to sleep . . . not only her foot, but her entire leg. When the time came to go she slipped out of the booth, intending to stand gracefully while he helped her with her coat, but things just didn ' t work out that way — instead, she fell flat on her face. It was just too much for the sleepy leg to be expected to hold her up. Naturally, she was completely morti- fied but unwisely decided to try again. So again she stood . . . and again she fell. The patrons of El- mer ' s were by this time having a case of not-so-mild hysterics when Barbara, with her date holding her firmly, stumbled out of the restaurant. Needless to say. they haven ' t been back since. The Acacia Clan ' s Oriental Ball was a huge suc- cess — Don " Chop Chop " Hartman disclosed an old Chinese proverb — " Woman is best furniture for home. How true, how true. Odell Stone and Rex Kenyan are trying to get a phone installed in their car so they can say, " We ' re on our way over now " and really mean it when they ' re looking for dates. DG Cecile Vauchelet has turned tables on her for- mer not-so-nice pinmate, George Davis of the Phi CONGRATULATIONS, L» Graduates BEST WISHES From YOUR MASTER FOOD MARKET Across from the Post Office PHONE 208 1 — 2082 We Deliver _ 5 Gams, though they hate to admit it. Cecile and George were all pinned and serious about the future till George ' s more repulsive traits began to show and he was so nasty that Cecile put his pin in his moist little palm and said " Begone! " At the time he seemed glad enough to go . . . but that time ' s past now and he ' s hanging around the DG door every night trying to get a date with his lost love. And we hope she stays lost — to him, that is. Acacia has a trio. Walter Noakes, Rex eKnyon and Scott Smith are the boys and they ' re a mild sen- sation. After all, women only look once at Sinatra, and three times at them. Marge Sloan. DG, and Phi Psi Glen Wilkerson (a brother of the famous Curly Morris — that lucky boy! ) had hit the steady trail but decided all too soon it wasn t for them and broke up finally and com- pletely. Till last Saturday night, that is. Marge went out w ith him and came home wearing the po- liceman ' s badge of Phi Kappa Psi. Of course, some people think it must be just rebound on her part cause she s been in love with a boy from Tyler, Te.xas, for a long, long time — and he ' s going to be married this month. But we ' re SURE that couldn ' t have a thing to do with her being pinned. Bill Valentine, Acacian, is still trying to convince his " True Love " that he went home 5 days early at Easter vacation to see his Mother and she doubts him. Suspicious girl.
