Once the opinion prevailed that a university is an institution for the culti- vation merely of speculative, theoretical and aesthetic tastes, a so-called " re- public of learning, " or agency for engendering an intellectual aristocracy, and that it should be properly located " under classic shades " and in romantic surroundings remote from the work-a-day world. But our modern world with its spirit of mastery, its highly organized industry, its political and social purpo- siveness, its demand for scientific specialism, technical skill, and trained ef- ficiency, will no longer brook such a divorce of higher education from practical affairs. The times demand that educational ideals and aims be democratic, humanitarian and practical. More than ever Wisdom, like the tabernacle of old, must take up its abode in the midst of the people. All the advantages of ammmmMMMEmMmmmmMm- 1 9 2 Six sawg wttft GATEWAY w wwwwtwgWW jggmm S higher liberal, technical and professional education must be made accessible to the masses of young humanity and, indeed, to all educable persons of whatever age, who live within our throbbing centers of population. They must be brought within at least a street car fare of every person craving and ready to use these advantages. Actuated by such considerations as the foregoing and by a sincere civic pride and devotion, a group of representative citizens organized themselves, in the early summer of 1908, into a Board of Trustees and began the active pro- motion of the movement for the founding of a non-sectarian, co-educational institution of higher liberal, professional and technical learning under such auspices as would conduce to the highest type of intelligent and efficient citizen- ship. This Board incorporated as the University of Omaha on October 8, 1908, and inaugurated its educational work on September 14, 1909, with an enroll- ment of 26 students. The success of the enterprise has abundantly vindicated the hopes and aims of its promotors, as the following statistics concerning attendance prove: JACOB ' S HALL 9 2 0 1 1 LABORATORY OF CHEMICAL DEPARTMENT The University, at the outstart, acquired the tract known as the Redick Reserve, on which stood the old Redick mansion, and has erected on this site two commodious well-appointed buildings, the John Jacobs Memorial Gym- nasium and Joslyn Hall. It has also steadily, year by year, extended the range of its educational work and is now conducting courses in the following De- partments : College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Teacher ' s Training School. Department of Fine Arts. Preparatory Department. School of Law. Pre-Medical Department. Home Economics Department. Extension Department. Night School. School of Oratory. It has provided the advantages of higher liberal and practical education for hundreds of ambitious, intelligent, and worthy young Omaha people who other- wise would have been compelled to go from home to secure these advantages. The central unit in any well conceived university scheme of education is a Collegiate Department with its broad fundamental training in Sciences, Mathe- matics, Literature, History, Economics, Civics, Philosophy, as well as Applied and Fine Arts. Accordingly, the promotors of the University of Omaha have devoted their efforts, in the first place, to the establishment of a general col- j ONE OP THE LECTURE ROOMS legiate course. In this effort they have been signally successful. A well- rounded curriculum of standard college courses has been evolved and is being operated by highly capable teachers who hold graduate and post-graduate de- grees from the leading universities of the country. Credits earned in this de- partment are fully honored and accepted at par by all the standard univer- sities and colleges, east and west. gis ggg? i l l iE5iE G AT E WAY 2 Each year the University is turning over to the Medical Schools a group of students who have taken, in addition to their High School education, two years of special college work preparatory to entrance upon medical studies as required by the standard schools of Medicine. Most of these Pre-Medics enter the University of Nebraska College of Medicine, located in Omaha. Some of them enter Creighton Medical School and others go elsewhere. Not a few have received their M. D. degree and are practicing their profession with ability and success. Thus the University is doing its share towards making Omaha a recognized center of medical learning and skill. Training in Home Economics has come to occupy a large place in the modern education of women ; and rightly so. Upon women devolves a special responsibility for the making of successful and happy homes. While very many college courses may be pursued with equal success and benefit by both sexes, nevertheless, the education of the sexes should be differentiated in certain re- spects on the ground of their respective responsibilities to each other, to the home, and to society. Accordingly, each college woman should take some prescribed minimum of work in Domestic Science and Art. MAIN ENTRANCE i i 1 9 2 O te MiM»s iSBB Eleven if i ! I | I t | I I g I I ! 5 I 1 I " lEnnkmg Jfarwari auin larkwariT Starting with twenty-six students eleven years ago, the University of Omaha, under the careful guidance of Dr. D. E. Jenkins, President, has grown and prospered. The " winds of freedom " have always blown o ' er her campus, and for a dozen years she has continued to progress in a forward direction — that of liberty of study and of life and of freedom of thought. On that plat- form of individuality and freedom the University has grown to be what it is today. Already a first-class modern college, though yet comparatively small, the University shows promise of developing and growing into one of the best edu- cational institutions of the middle west, a credit and boost for Omaha. Her plan and main purpose has always been to prepare men and women for an ac- tive part in the development of our great democracy, to turn out trained indi- viduals with serviceable brains and bodies ; and no effort has ever been spared to accomplish this end. Looking into the future, say a dozen years ahead, we see an enlarged Uni- versity with a highly trained faculty and student body, an institution turning out men and women who are successful in their various pursuits of life. We see a University which is a credit not only to Omaha, but to Nebraska and the United States as well, an institution which attracts students from all parts of the globe. Just as truly as we now see Omaha, ' ' The Gate City of the West. ' ' do we see the University of Omaha as a true " Gateway to Knowledge " in the future. A MODEL CAMPUS SCENE 1 w ffiwftwftwfl G AT E WAY } p mmnmmww m s mm msm ■ A 3Farultjj Itempomt By Dr. D. E. Jenkins, President The year just closing has been a truly notable one in the history of the University. It became evident on the opening day that the ebb in the tide of student attendance caused by the war had ceased and that, as had always been the case from the founding of the University until the war, we opened with a considerable increase of regular college students. It was a most excellent group of young men and women that enrolled and identified itself with the scholastic, social and athletic life of the institution. The young ladies will per- fectly understand and concur when we say that it was especially gratifying to find that the per cent of young men among the newly registered students was much larger than for several preceding years. A very few days revealed the fact that there were splendid athletic po- tentialities in the new student body. It included some athletes who had figured in high school and college football and basketball elsewhere. Spontaneously there arose a demand for the resuscitation of college sports which had been almos ' t entirely suspended during the preceding year, owing to the enlistment of college men in war service. Football enthusiasm soon broke loose and drew everything along in its wake. It was late in the season to begin organizing and developing a team with any expectation of playing winning football. But difficult as the task seemed, it was undertaken with determination and con- fidence. The venture seetned fully worth while to the lovers of football. True sportsmen lightly esteem obstacles and handicaps ; and the bare possibility of developing an ultimately winning team in the course of the season was a suf- ficient challenge to stir the hopes of our stalwart men. The outcome fully jus- tified the ambition and confidence of the team. The season ' s success in football put the champions of basketball on their mettle. An even better record must be made, and it was made. Beside proving themselves victorious in the State College Association, our players established their superiority over old experienced teams in other states. Heartiest con- gratulations to our undefeated team ! It has established a precedent for future teams to emulate with utmost zeal and pride ; and it has demonstrated the wholesome influence of athletics in the way of intensifying college spirit throughout the student body. It is worth while here to pay our respects to the students who, without ex- pectation of securing a place on either team attended practice and did their best in bucking the line and in enabling the teams to know and strengthen their weak places. It requires the " simon pure " brand of loyalty to the school to make any student willing to simply be used as a foil for developing the wits and the agility of the men who are to enjoy the distinction of being on the teams. The greatest credit is due to the men who exhibited this sort of sportsmanship. 19 2 0 l i M i ityii i i i i M M i Mig Thirteen GATEWAY Another notable achievement of the year was the rehabilitation of the prin- ciple of student co-operation in the government of the school. With some modi- cations of its former structure, the Student Council was re-organized. Some valuable precedents have been set and the way has been opened for a progres- sive actualization of self-government in accordance with those principles of social control that ought to prevail in a group of young men and women who are looking forward to the responsibilities of citizenship in a democracy. A stable and effective form of self-government is not the product of a year. It is an evolution. And as the experience of other institutions makes plain, it is brought into being along conservative lines of experimentation and as the result of patient study of the particular problems presented in each particular situation in which it happens to be undertaken. The frequent collapse of schemes of self-government in colleges is no proof of the impracticability of the idea of self-government, but rather an indication of the necessity of great wis- dom and patience in exploiting the idea. And great appreciation is due those students who, by the choice of their colleagues, have, during the year, under- taken the perplexing and often vexatious tasks devolving upon the Student Council. Certain it is that the morale of the school has been benefited ma- terially ; for there have been, during the year, fewer offences against good order and the requirements of self respect ; and those which have occurred have been, generally speaking, not very grievous. All in all, the year has been one not only of considerable recovery from the academic disabilities caused by the war but also of progress along definite lines toward the GREATER UNIVERSITY of our hopes and dreams. The securing of an ENDOWMENT FUND of approximately $200,000.00 has done much in placing the institution on a firm financial basis and in imparting a tone of optimism to all our efforts. Nothing, however, imparts more of promise for the future or more pleasant memories of the past, than the splendid initiative and enthusiasm which has permeated the student body and found expression in many forms of wholesome enterprise.

Great confusion issued among the passengers until the commander of the ship divided them into classes. One class he called Seniors and they were the ruling class, wise and mighty. Next came the Juniors and then the Sophomores. Last, but greatest in number, came the Freshmen, for there were over forty of them. But the Class called Freshmen brought with them queer ways, which were not accepted by the other classes, especially the Seniors, and they kept away from them, calling them " Greenies. " And the newcomers gathered together and chose from their number a leader by the name of Reed Zimmerman, who ad- dressed them, saying: " Let us make friends with the other classes by giving them a party after the fashion of their own hearts. " The largest hall was found, and in the Gymnasium the party was given, and one hundred and twenty-five guests were present. The royal colors of purple and white floated from the walls, and the Freshmen were pleased, for had they not then held, through a heated contest with the upper classmen, their High School colors under which they had served four perilous years. The waves dashed against the hull as the ship drew near the shore and all the passengers disembarked. The spirit of Spring was in the air and the people decided to crown the Queen of the May, as was their custom. And lo ! for the first time the class called Freshmen were given a Maid to the Queen, and they chose from among their number a fair maiden by the name of Louise Brown. Many days elapsed. The old ship was destroyed and in its place stood forth a large and stately construction called Joslyn Hall, but the people could not find the cozy fireplace nor the long study table over and about which they were wont to congregate to solve the mysteries of Algebra or Livy. After the custom of the school, the Sophomores, as those peoples were called who had arrived home safely from Greenland, gave a never-to-be-forgot- ten Hollowe ' en party. Everyone was masked, fortunes were told, ballet dances were given, and Ringling Brothers could not compete with some of the more radical stunts later in the evening. Shortly after the party came the hike chaperoned by Professor Lewis, who, much to his surprise and humiliation, ar- rived home, escorting a pair of ladies ' kid gloves and a powder puff. Now the time was drawing nigh when they must disband, so, after their custom, they did come together to choose a maid to do honor to the Queen of the May, and it came to pass that frolicksome Jessie Tennant was the chosen one. Again the busy students went forth into the hills and valleys where they might be inspired, and fit themselves for the great work of the year to follow. Great was the leadership they displayed. All Avho attended the hare and hound chase learned rapidly about the intricacies of the beautiful hilly woodlands, where the autumn leaves fluttered from the trees as butterflies went overhead.

This was followed by the Junior party, which, as usual, was very individualistic. When the far- stretching fields of daffodils were rhythmically tossing their heads in the whispering breeze, we chose Peg Powell from our little band to pay homage to our Queen. The path seemed to be growing much narrower and duties were far more numerous ; but as we took this last great step into the Senior class, we saw the clouds rolling by, and, there in the glorious sunshine, towered that ever- longed-for mountain top. A new year came. Although many things had changed, and we were, at last, dignified Seniors, still our roving natures clung to us. Again, Indian-like, we blazed a trail through those peaceful, echoing woods. Somehow we were divided; and, " A house divided against itself cannot stand. " The account of those on the outskirts will be given elsewhere. Those who kept in touch with the rations, stood by the blazing, crackling fire in the crisp autumn air, and their happy faces beamed with the radiant glow of the fire. How delicious were those bursting weinies, and fluffy marshmallows, which made necessary the gasoline finger bowl. Nevertheless, we still loved one another for we later were reunited around a beautiful table, where we read a peculiar menu, ordered strange things, and, sad to say, acted eventually a little oriental. Again, when apple bows hung white above and the silvery moon winked a shy old eye, we made haste to the dwelling place of elves and fairies. After feasting on food as sweet as nectar, we sang to the harps of the fairies. When we came back to this world the faculty gave us a most delightful reception. Last, but not least, I must remind you of the time the fairies helped us make such beautiful dainty dresses for the girls of the school. Then in each little slipper the fairies placed some wings, so that the girls could dance when all was in readiness. On a snow- white pole they tacked ribbons colored by the rainbow, and in the little baskets from fairyland they placed sweet flowers kissed by the dew. Then they helped us choose a beautiful Queen, Lucille Kendall, and made for her a lovely crown. However, the fairies slipped away before we crowned her Queen of the May, and, alas, it grew dark and gloomy. The thunder roared and the lightning flashed. We made haste to call back the little fairyland folk, and they hid in the pretty baskets, to help us bring sunshine into the hearts of others and to forget the storm without. We feared this would be our last time to dance in fairyland, but we are n ow confident that they will go out into the world with us and help us bring joy and happiness everywhere, so all the world will be brighter and sunnier where we are. 19 2 0 Twenty-six utfctfXtfffSSi GATEWAY CI MARGUERITE CARNAL, Vice-President MILDRED BUZZA Treasurer HENRY EDSTROM President 1ZMA TUCKER Secretary JAMES WALLS Sergeant-at-Arms The Junior Class, though small, has kept up with the other classes of the University in action and spirit. The first year deprived the class of some of its best members through military conditions, but this only served as an in- centive to the rest of the class. When the class took upon itself the high and mighty honor of Sophomores, the other classes had to acknowledge the gre atness of the class of ' 21. To start the social life of the year, the class carried out the old custom of Sophomores, by giving the annual Hallowe ' en party. The telegrams from noted people made this party one long remembered. The second year was one not easily forgotten. This year the class has acquired more dignity, perhaps because of the knowledge accumulated in the three years of University life, or possibly because of the more serious future seen just ahead — the height of University life— that of being Seniors. However, good times had their place. The class gave several parties. A deed, long to be remembered, was the presentation of the new drop curtain for the stage. As the class finishes its Junior year, many glances are cast backward at the good times of the three years of University life, but even more are sent forward toward the coming year, when this class will do its best to uphold the best traditions of Seniors in the University. Twenty-eight EARLE PULTE DOROTHY EDWARDS HTDBERT PETERSON President Vice-President Secretary-Treasurer Although fewer in number, the Sophomore class has continued to uphold the high standard which it established during the Freshman year. An enviable record was made in all branches of school activities. The members of the class are all modest in nature, but nevertheless they consider their class as the leading one in University life. The class was represented this year in all branches of athletics and school activities. It held a monopoly on the captaincies of athletic teams. Sophomores were captains of the football, the basketball, the track and the tennis teams. There were three Sophomores in the annual play, one of whom held the feminine lead. On Gala Day, the Sophomores gave a sketch called " A Modern Version of a Day on the Nile. " This number was one of the hits of the program. Mem- bers of the class held important positions on the Gateway Staff, those of busi- ness manager, assistant business manager and assistant editor. The majority of the class also kept a high standing in scholastic honors. On the evening of February, the thirteenth, the class entertained the entire school at a party in Joslyn Hall. Some of the superstitious ones of the class protested against holding a party on the thirteenth. In spite of the opposition, the party was held, proving a great success. Honor guests were members of the Trinity basketball team, whom our boys had defeated earlier in the evening. i griif tiift i GATEWAY n mm mM WWFW i? t p } C { I r I 2 LORIN THOMPSON President ALT A DAVIS HELEN McDONALD Vice-President Treasurer ELTON HENSMAN Secretary HAROLD BLOUGH Sergeant-at Arms It was with some bewilderment that this illustrious class came into the University early last fall. After the first week, however, we learned where the cloak room, etc., was situated, and no longer hunted for the art room in the basement. Early in the year the Sophomores called a class meeting of all the Freshmen, where Freshman officers were elected as follows : Lorin Thomp- son, president; Alta Davis, vice-president; Elton Hensman, secretary; Helen McDonald, treasurer ; Harold Blough and Elizabeth Taylor, sergeants-at-arms. The Freshman class has shown as much or more school spirit, enthusiasm and pep than any other class in the school, at least it thinks so. Contrary to all preceding customs, the class of ' 23 gave the first class party, the succe ss of which was phenomenal. The ' ' Uni quartet ' ' will not easily be forgotten ; the other parts of the program, especially the refreshments, were equally pleasing. There were several outdoor picnics and parties given during the year by the Freshmen. Athletics this year have been supported very substantially by the Fresh- men. The football team had several Freshmen playing in important positions, while the four of the seven first string basketball men were Freshmen. It is the old " fight " in these noble veterans of our class that helps to " put things over " for the U. of 0. The class was well represented in the dramatic work also.

The year ended with an enrollment of thirty-four. The instructors during the year were Judge Alexander C. Troup, Municipal Corporations ; Mr. Charles W. Haller, Agency, Bailments and Carries, Persons and Domestic Relations; Mr. Thomas B. Dysart, Corporations; Mr. Robert Strehlow, Partnership; Mr. Ralph Van Orsdel, Argumentation and Public Speaking; Mr. Robert Neely, Torts and Damages; Judge James J. Fitzgerald, Criminal Law and Criminal Procedure ; Mr. C. C. Sheppard, Sales ; Mr. Ken- neth Finlayson in charge of Moot Court, and Mr. Arthur C. Thomsen, Con- tracts and Quasi-contracts. Especially interesting work was done by Mr. Ralph Van Orsdel and Mr. Kenneth Finlayson in the classes of Argumentation and Public Speaking and the Moot Court. The case of State of Nebraska vs. Charles J. Imboden, tried in Moot Court, attracted considerable newspaper comment. John A. Dill repre- sented the State as prosecuting attorney ; B. C. Findley, the defendant ; George Evans acted as Judge. William P. Hampton, as complaining witness, displayed much ingenuity in fabricating evidence. Mr. P. C. Rasmussen, as Larry Flynn, the arresting officer, lost his knowledge of law, but acted the part well. The jury, composed of students, listened attentively for more than an hour to the arguments of counsel, then retired, ignoring, as true jurymen, the instructions of both the Judge and the lawyers, and returned a verdict of acquital. " High- jacking " a quart of " Sunny Brook " was the charge. The jury were of one mind— that the physical evidence should have been submitted to them. The school acquired valuable gifts of law books from Mr. Charles W. Hal- ler, Mr. H. A. Whipple, Mr. Charles Fritscher, Mr. Isadore Ziegler and Mrs. M. A. Nagl. A class of eleven, including one woman, was represented in the graduating exercises June 3rd, 1920, at which time the degrees of L.L.B. were conferred. This was the largest group of graduates in the law school at any time here- tofore. Two banquets were held during the last semester, and an opportunity given to the students to demonstrate their ability as public speakers. The one ban- quet, given at the University Club to the argumentation class, by Mr. Van Orsdel, led to the formation of a speaking club, for the purpose of stimulating interest in extemporaneous speaking, and brought forth fruit in some excellent impromptu speeches at the latter banquet tendered by the students on behalf of the outgoing class. Plans are under way so that the library, now consisting of about three thousand volumes, may be so added to that assistance from the Douglas County Bar Association library may be unnecessary.

In September, seven students enrolled in the University as Senior Preps. Although they were few in number, they were there with plenty of pep. At all the football and basketball games you were sure to see the faces of nearly all of them. Charles Shramek represented the preps in the Student Council. Mar- guerite Kenner and Margaret Dow were two of the prep officers. Marguerite Lobeck was cheer leader for the football games. Ruth Waterman was not with us much the first semester because of illness, but was prominent among us the second half. Gerald Edwards has been one of our faithful students. In Febru- ary, Marguerite Lobeck left, but Basil Binns stepped into take her place. These are the graduating preps. The rest of the class has shown the same good spirit of loyalty to the University. Although this is the last year for some of the preps here, our interest, as a whole, in the welfare of the University will never be lessened, and we will always be ready to boost for the school where we spent some of the most enjoyable years of our life — as " preps.

" In the month of June of this year ten students of this University will leave the institution for the purpose of entering medical school. Will they turn out to be quacks, or real doctors ? There is surely no doubt as to their becoming the " real stuff. " They have shown their ability at the University of Omaha ; they should succeed at medical school. Some of our pre-medics have, indeed, made enviable records during their short stay at the University. Three of this year ' s school assistants were chosen from the ranks of the pre-medics. Mildred Buzza, the lone feminine pre- medic, was assistant in Zoology and Vertebrate Anatomy. Few girls advance very far into medical work without discouragement, but we feel certain that Mildred will be there at the finish with the rest of us. Julius Brown was assistant in Chemistry. If you will take the girls ' word for it, a better assistant could not be found. Albert Edwards was the assistant in Physics. Al not only assists, but also acts as a private tutor. Then there is George Eychaner (around school just plain " Ike " ) ; when he starts to blow on his saxaphone — Oh ! Boy !— well, you just can ' t keep your feet still. Earl Pulte is another of our musicians. He certainly is " right there " on the violin. Earl has quite a temptation toward joining the police force. He sure has some billy (Billie) ! Hasn ' t he boys? If dramatics count in influencing patrons, we feel sure that Henry Edstrom ' s office will always be crowded, especially with the fair sex. Then there is Max Fleishman. When it comes to being a good-natured, sen- sible fellow, Max " takes the cake, " this is all there is to it. We have two newcomers in our midst this year : Max Wonders and Jimmy Dugher. As to Max, well, he is truly a wonder. He certainly lives up to his name, we must say. It matters little where you put Jimmy, he is a good jolly fellow at all times and in all places. Now, far be it from the writer to mention himself, but then he does wish to say that he is with the pre-medics heart and soul.

S, James Athletics at the University of Omaha have always been a prime factor in the activities of the University. Not only have athletics been a source of bene- fit to the student body, but it has been a source of pride to all who hold dear the institution to feel that for a school so young her athletic endeavors compare favorably with other schools of longer standing and more varied experience. The athletics of the past year have been especially worthy of mention. The teams have been composed of gentlemanly fellows who have carried themselves in a manner worthy the traditions of any school. While we have not in every instance been able to carry off the laurel of victory, yet few have been the times when the boys of " U. of O " have gone down to defeat. Notwithstanding the success of the past, both in athletic honors and stu- dent co-operation, there has been a general feeling that since the institution is growing with leaps and bounds, some changes and renovations should be brought about in athletics for the benefit of the entire student body. It is gen- erally accepted in academic circles that college athletics performs its most legitimate function only when it furnishes the means of systematic exercise to the entire student body — not to a few specialists. To this end the faculty advised the employment of an efficient coach who should be at the head of the physical education department, and who should rank in some respects as an instructor of the institution. It seemed further advisable that the general oversight of athletics from the students ' standpoint should be placed in the hands of an Athletic Board ap- proved by the faculty and held responsible by them to carry on the affairs of athletics in a business-like manner. Following these advisements, Mr. Earnest Adams, a man efficient in foot- ball, basketball, track and baseball, was selected to take charge of the physical education of the men. An Athletic Board, composed of one member from each college class, two faculty members and the coach will be appointed each year to take charge of the business side of athletics. All who hold the institution close to heart feel confident that in the future " U. of 0. " will be cited as a pioneer of the newer, saner and more sportsman- like athletic system — a system which in time will closely approximate the Eng- lish system, where every man in college takes an active part in some form of athletics ; where intercollegiate sport will .not only have its very important place, but where inter-class contests will be very close to the hearts of the students — bringing all the classes and departments closer together and making for a deeper and more healthy type of college spirit. ni:. : r y w M ,i,r n K nv WWW M-W W WMMMM Forty 19 2 0 M w www w ww wmw w wmwwmw: $ur All-fear ffinarl E. A. ADAMS E. A. Adams has completed his first year as the University ' s head coach. Starting at the school after the football season was over, he has been very successful in turning out athletic teams which are placing the U. of 0. on a footing unsurpassed, from an athletic point of view, by any institution in this section. Ernie takes on all comers, the bigger they are the better. Adams is never content to play teams of inferior ability, but believes that even a defeat at the hands of a team of unquestioned prominence is far better than a victory over a smaller school. Adams has taken active charge of every major and minor sport and di- rected his teams personally through the entire season. Few realize what a gigantic task this is for one man to undertake and carry to a successful end as Ernie has done. Other schools generally have a coach to take charge of each branch of sport, but Adams believes in being in personal touch with the per- sonnel of each team and, through his keen judgment of men, has succeeded in winning the confidence of all his athletes in a way which no other coach at Omaha has ever before accomplished. As coach, Adams has won the respect of every man who has come in con- tact with him and has received the unqualified support of the students and faculty of the University. He stands first, last and all the time for clean athletics, and has instilled in his men the spirit that the first requisite of an athlete is self control and a complete self-mastery so firmly that Omaha ' s teams have had a personnel which has been equalled by few schools in the country.

Its membership consists of all athletes who have won varsity " O ' s " in the various branches of sports. It was organized under the direction of E. A. Adams, Director of Athletics, for the purpose of assisting in improving athletic conditions at the University. At present every letter man in the school is a member of the club and many alumni members of the old " 0 " club are also affiliated. VSSBSEBt Forty -two iWMmwmiSMSBSBSBSMM 19 2 0 GATEWAY |l I Z 1 After a lapse of two years, the University of Omaha blossomed forth this year with a real football team. At first prospects for a successful season looked dark, but gradually brightened as soon as the men began working together. This year will go on record as a fair season. We must remember, however, that in the two games that we did lose, the team played good ball, compelling its opponents to fight for their laurels. The team, with little practice and practically no signals, met the Wayne Normal team at Wayne and suffered defeat at their hands. In the first half, our men were bewildered by the aerial attack of Wayne, but tightened up in the last, when Wayne scored but twice. " Mo " Pressly showed up good at the helm, while Levinson played a stellar game at end. When the heavy squad from Tarkio came on deck at Creighton Field, they seemed giants because of their size and power ; and they certainly played true to appearances, winning by a 32-to-0 margin. Our boys held Tarkio, 6 to 0, the first half, but let down in the second. All the men played a good, clean game. Two defeats made the team work much harder. When they arrived at Albany, Mo., on November 1, they were there to win. Although the Palmer College boys were much larger, they couldn ' t keep the Omaha warriors down. The Pressly brothers made Omaha ' s winning touchdowns in the game, which ended 14 to 7 in favor of Omaha. Next came the fast Fort Omaha team, with men in the lineup from large i 19 2 0 ]f Forty-three universities throughout the country. The field was muddy, and slowed up our backfield considerably. Mud was surely in evidence. The Uni- versity missed several chances to score on fumbled passes caused by the soggy field. When time finally was called the score stood 0 to 0. One of the hardest games of the season was with Trinity College of Sioux City, Iowa, which was played here at Creighton Field, November 22. The U. of 0. team showed the results of good, hard and steady practice in this game. With a hard fighting " eleven-man team " they swept Trinity off their feet. When the final whistle stopped the fray, the score stood 20 to 0 in favor of the " red and black. " Our team met Fort Omaha at Rourke Park on Turkey Day. The slippery ball and heavy snow caused many a groan from the sidelines when the ball was fumbled time af- WOERNER HARMON Harmon, as a guard, was impas- able, hard as rocks. WALDRON GOLDING " Bob " surely could tear an awful hole in the other team ' s line. HILBERT PETERSON " Pete, " the captain of the 1919 team, proved himself a wonderful leader and a strong man at center. WADE REEVES They may have got thru, but it wasn ' t thru Wade.

The machine of the Uni- versity showed its supremacy, win- ning- by a 7-to-6 score after a hard- fought game. Golding was respon- sible for the victory when he kicked goal, giving us the winning point. The 1919 football season for the U. of 0., though slow in starting, certainly wound up in whirl-wind style. The dark clouds that appeared earlier is the year all proved to have genuine silver linings. Starting out with two defeats, our football war- riors showed they had the right spirit by finishing the season with one tie and three wins. We confi- dently predict that next year will see the good old U. of 0. gridiron ag- gregation successfully mixing with the best of ' em ! JERRY KYLE ' ' Jerry ' ' played a good game, and his head worked like magic when he was hugging the pigskin. PAUL PRESSLY " Press " was a fast man, and a wonder at catching passes.

In all sports onr teams have been successful and achieved more than could be expected. In basketball especially is this true. Starting about the middle of December with a squad of men of un- known ability, Coach Adams ground out a team that was able to win every game it played. The only game lost during the season was one with the South Dakota Aggies, played at Brookings, S. Dak., when every man on the team was greatly weakened from a long, strenuous automobile trip and in no condition to play winning basketball. The State Conference Basketball season closed with two teams tied for first honors — Doane College and Omaha University. Doane won the title in 1918 and 1919, and was keen on tucking away the cup this year. Arrange- ments were finally completed to stage the big game in Omaha, March 23rd, for the championship of Nebraska. The gymnasium was crowded to capacity by an excited crowd long be- fore the first whistle. The play Avas the fastest ever seen on a local floor. The University squad displayed the same teamwork and defensive play thru- Forty-seven ijm iwrm msmui rau api GATEWAY } Coach Adams out the game that had characterized their work thruout the season. The game was hard-fought and at one point the score was uncomfortably close, but during the last fifteen minutes of play the outcome was never in doubt. Ad- ams was the individual star of the game. He completely baffled the Doane team by his dribbling and shooting. Reeves played a wonderful game at guard, while the regular scoring ma- chine — Captain Phelps, Pressly and Beacom — played exceptional ball. Thompson and Levinson were sent in the last ten minutes and performed very creditably. Following is the box score : OMAHA UNIVERSITY (35) fg- pf. tf. fig. pts.

Three trips were made by the squad : one to Sioux City, la., to play Trinity; one to South Dakota, and one to west- ern Nebraska. Eight games were played on the Uni. floor. Sports Editor Gaddis of the Daily News, after seeing the leading confer- ence teams in action, selected the Uni. five as first all-state team. Gad- dis says that every man on the Uni- team is an individual star. M. Pressly, forward, is speedy and has an eagle eye for a basket. He is also a good man at handling the ball and a clever floorman. Beacom outclasses Dredla of Doane for a position on the team, because of his ability to play the floor. " Doc Beak " is a fast man and played a bril- liant game. Captain Phelps is the best center in the state, because of his ability to jump and for his floor ability. Phelps greatly helped the scoring machine. Adams, guard, is regarded as the best all-round man in the state. Adams is a wonderful dribbler, a clever floor man, and a good shooter. Reeves, guard, is a wonder. Reeves never makes many points; that ' s not his job. But when you consider the number of points he caused the oppos- ing team to lose, his worth is realized. Thompson is an invaluable man to any team. He is fast, hard-hitting and Forty-nine GATEWAY clever. With a little more experience he will make a top-notcher. Levinson is a fast and clever floor man. With another year ' s experience he should develop into one of the best. Golding developed into a good man and at the end of the season was play- ing first-class ball. We look for great things from Bob next year. Grau was always there when you needed him. He is fast, hard-working and has a good eye. P. L. Pressly, student manager and player, was not only the best little manager that ever was, but also a good man to have with the team, and on sev- eral occasions he showed his worth on the floor.

A num- ber of likely looking men answered the first call. Several of the football and basketball men were out; among them being Peterson, Phelps (Captain), Reeves, Thompson, Beacon, Hartford, Madsen, Gustafson, Mogge and Broad- well. Coach Adams soon found the good and bad points of his men, and by constant hard work developed, from a squad of practically all green men, a track team composed of six men which was able to accomplish much more than had been expected. Phelps, former basketball captain, was elected track cap- tain. Those who qualified to go to the state meet were Captain Phelps (high jump and distance runs), Thompson (captain-elect), (jumps and dashes), Gus- tafson (weights), Mogge (distance runs), Hartford (dashes: 440 and 220), Madsen (dashes: 100, 220 and 440). After a very short period of training, a little over three weeks, the team went to the State Intercollegiate Track meet, which was held at Nebraska Wesleyan University, University Place, Nebraska, on Friday, June 21st, 1920. The weather man was good to the one hundred or more athletes who were there to compete, and the surface of the track was in the best of condition. Two Nebraska records were broken, the record for the mile run and for the javelin throw. Omaha University sprang a surprise in winning fourth place with her squad of six men, who were entered in less than one-half of the events. Phelps won first in the half-mile (time: 2:13) and high jump (height: 5 ft., 9 in.) ; Thompson placed third in the broad jump and fourth in the high jump (18 ft., 8 in. and 5 ft., 3 in., respectively) ; Gustafson won third in t he shot put with a heave of 38 ft., 7 2 i n -, and had he not fouled, would have taken second place in the discus.

Undoubtedly these men, who will probably all be back next year, will do much better as a result of their increased experience and training. Coach Adams hopes to develop a track squad next year that will be able to compete for first honors in the State Track Meet of 1921. All of this year ' s squad except Phelps and Gustafson will be back, and with them and Reeves, Beacom and Broadwell as a nu- cleus for a team, Adams ought to put out a team that will perform very cred- ibly. Complete equipment for indoor training as well as outdoor work will be on hand and there will be no delay in starting next year ' s season so that the men may get into the best of con- dition for the meets.

In recogni- tion of this broader public interest, tennis was reinstituted this year in the University as a minor sport, after an absence of three years. Students are realizing more and more that it is the only active game they may conveniently continue to play after leaving college, and in recognition of its worth a great interest was shown in it this year at the University. The University of Omaha Tennis Club was organized by the student body on April 14, 1920. Officers elected were : J. Beacom, president ; J. Roberts, vice- president ; F. Jones, secretary and treasurer. Men ' s and women ' s tournaments were played off. Strehlow, Hensman and Bliss showed good form among the women. Wesleyan-Omaha Tennis Meet Captain Grau, Phelps, Pressly and Taylor qualified for the Uni. tennis team, which encountered the crack Wesleyan squad in a dual meet on Omaha ' s courts June 2. Playing against men of greater experience and in much better condi- tion, the Uni. team put up a great fight. The doubles match proved the most exciting of the series. After two and one-half hours of hard play, Captain Grau and Phelps lost to the Wesleyan team, McBride and Acherd, 16-18, 4-6.

No sooner have the Seniors turned their tassels to the right, than the Alumni welcome the graduating class with a ban- quet. The banquet this year at the Athletic Club will long be remembered by the class of 1920 as helping to overcome the regret of ending Senior days. But the association does more than revive memories of the past — it lives in the present. In athletics, in dramatics, in school functions, in the welfare of the University, the Alumni take an active interest. The University is still and al- ways to them their school, in whose success they look forward. The officers of the year 1919-1920 have led the Alumni well. The officers of the year were : President, Mrs. Louis Edwards ; Vice-President, Irving Fink- enstein ; Secretary, Esther Knapp ; Treasurer, Victor Jorgensen ; Correspond- ing Secretary, Irene Wilson. At the banquet new officers were elected. With these officers at the head of the association great things are promised for the association for the coming year.

A. did not awaken to its great possibilities and responsibilities until at almost the end of the year. After a couple of profitable visits from Mr. Charrington, and after several fellows, by attending a " Y " conference at Fre- mont, had been made to realize just what " Y " could and should mean, the Y. M. C. A. of the Uni. began to look really worth while. Of course, everything could not be revolutionized at once, but under the leadership of Lorin Thomp- son, assisted by Harold Ramsburg and Wade Reeves, great things are hoped for. A " Y " cabinet has been formed to make up the backbone of the organiza- tion. May the Omaha Uni.

This year has indeed been an active one for the University Y. W. C. A. From start to finish many events have been connected with the organization. To start school social life of the year, the Y. W. and the Y. M. jointly gave a reception to the new students. The popular leaders of the different lines of school activity welcomed, with short talks, the new students to the University. This was a " Get Acquainted " reception. Many teas were given, several for the new girls, one when the football team were guests and another for the na- tional secretary, Miss Tunneli. Besides the social activities, there were those of a more serious nature. Every Wednesday special meetings were held, both for business and for helpful Christian talks. To make this organization better connected with national work, the local Y. W. voted to send a delegate to the convention at Cleveland. In order to raise expenses, a carnival was held in March. Over $100 was raised, part of which went to pay the expenses of our delegate, some to add furnishings for the girls ' room. Not only was the Y. W. helping women of the University, but also the men. The girls did their best to help athletics by selling tickets, attending games, rooting for our team, and last by giving the team an athletic banquet. In return, the work of the men was much appreciated by the girls, in preparation for the Carnival. The Y. W. is proud of its record this year.

The club takes charge of elections for Dramatic Club officers, for election of the Gateway Staff, and for the May election for Queen and Maids. The Gateway Club is an ardent booster of athletics and other activities. It consists of all the students of the University, organized and working for the upholding of the traditions and customs of the school and for furthering new interests in behalf of the welfare of the University. The club is but a means of carrying out the plans of the students. Al- though the duties of the organization are not definite, but variable, the work of the club is felt and its value in University life is recognized. 0} p Ea fB B5B E3EaiO! iBBi ja G AT E WAY lit A ;i AU " MM% iramaitr Qllub DOROTHY CANAN President DOROTHY EDWARDS Vice-President DOROTHY GRAY Secretary-Treasurer The Dramatic Club is the main spring of the ever-interesting spirit of dramatics, which pervades in the University. Without it, our custom of an Annual Play would die ; with it, the tradition is revived anew each year. The club is composed of all those in the school who have an interest in dramatic work. The officers of this year worked hard to put over the " Schoolmistress, " to make it the success it was. That dignity is not a required attribute of an officer of the organization is shown by the fact that the president was the clever Irish maid of the play. The club is not an organization without life. Each year it stirs the students into action by the whisper of, " It ' s most time for the play ! ' ' The Dramatic Club, through its presentation of the play, was a leading factor this year of University life, and it will continue to be one of the active forces of the school ' s life.

The aim of the Student Council of the University of Omaha is to represent the voice of the students in all matters pertaining to student life. This year has indeed been one of great progress for the Council. To make the organization permanent, a final constitution was perfected. The Council took one of the first steps towards the entrance of the Uni. into the Nebraska State Collegiate Conference and formulated the athletic requirements and rules necessary for admission. Letters were granted to football and basketball men according to the Council ' s recommendations. The Special Chapels which have proved interesting were, for the most part, the result of the Council ' s work. These and many other matters, discussed pro and con by the members, have aided in the self government of the students. Several plans, including some dealing with an improved cut system and lunch- room service, have been formulated. Although not in force this year they will materialize next fall for the benefit of the students of the new year. Back Row: Fonda, Huberman, Arlander, Munson, Bliss. Middle Row: Lake, Simpson.

The mystic order of BACUCY is in our midst ! But to its members there is no mystery. Instead there seems to be a hidden bond of good-fellowship and loyalty that binds together the girls having so many different interests. Joys and hardships endured together in many different classes bring together the members of BACUCY into one harmonious group. But — enough of the mystery ! Shall I divulge to you those who are included in the lucky number 1 Very well. Just those who aim to fol- low the ideals of Froebel and endeavor to teach the little five-year-old all the things he should know ; these only are included. In other words, the girls of the kindergarten department have organized the mystic order of BACUCY to assure more perfect understanding and to develop delightful social relation- ships. Many are the good times that have been enjoyed together. Nature trips and birthday parties have helped to lighten the wearysome load of lessons. And do you know — it was through this very organization that we found that our beloved Miss Fox was delightfully " human. " The Senior girls leave the department with a great big feeling of regret that it is all over; but they will ever watch with interest the development and growth of BACUCY. 19 2 0 jBffisM sfl ' Ba G AT E WAY p r mrmm mM s mmm ir mm n " She pup Back Row: Dike, Scholes, Alpirn, Gilbert.

Since the school was founded, dramatics has been the big attraction of the year. How elated we feel when we have produced the best play the Uni. has ever given. Best, did I say? No, truly that was an error, for " The Rose o ' Plymouth Town, " which we thought could never be surpassed, sort o ' lost its brilliancy when " The Dream That Came True " came along. What a large cast it had, and what wonderful op- portunities for dramatic talent. All that may be true, but do you remember " The Amazons? " Well I knew you couldn ' t forget that, with its unique gymnasium scene and its fascinating plot. That is all well and good for times past, but we must dwell neither on the past alone nor the present, but both — and. Therefore let us consider " The School Mistress, " the play of 1920. Did it come up to our expectations? Oh, yes, indeed, for talent comes and talent goes, just as the tide from the ocean fluctuates, but the new always fills the place of the old, just as the incoming tide fills the bay. There were three acts in ' ' The School Mistress. ' ' Act I, the mystery, was a scene in the reception room of Volumnia College, Volumnia House, near Port- land Place. Miss Dyott, the dignified principal, left the college on a short trip ; Sixty-six 19 2 0 B then the fun began. Dinah, the daughter of rear-admiral Rankling and Mrs. Rankling, had been secretly married to Paulover. Dinah was the charming daughter of a very sweet mother and a severe dignified father, who succeeded in amusing the audience by his austerity. " We all envied Dinah ' s position, for seldom do we find such a true and devoted husband as Jack feigned to be. We were delighted to discover Jack ' s remarkable dramatic ability. The girls of the College, including Mable Norris, Leona Johnston and especially Elizabeth Taylor, who was a very natural leader of all their mischievous pranks, aided Dinah in whatever way they could. Act II was a party given for Dinah. Queckett, who pretended to be the uncle of the girls, was an unusually good Englishman. His two friends, Mal- lory and Saunders, seemed to have had previous practice in their parts ; they acted very natural. Sad to say, the party was interrupted by a fire caused by Tyler, who seemed a typical porter. Jane, who announced the fire, portrayed a sweet and interesting servant. The two firemen, who entered, were very amus- ing, but rather trying at such a critical time. Act III was a scene at Admiral Rankling ' s the next morning. The guests strolled in one by one, each unable to sleep. Consequently the admiral came upon his daughter, and consented not to interfere with the marriage, on the grounds that the couple should be separated for five years. Miss Dyott, much to our sruprise, had laid aside her dignity to enter in a ballet dress. Though Volumnia College had burned to the ground she had no need of worry- ing, because she had taken up theatrical work under Mr. Otto Bernstein, a popular composer. This last statement applies to Harold ( " Otto " ) in real as well as stage life. mm 19 2 0 !mMMmmmwmmj®mM m Sixty-seven i i ,i irA-TiSTfeii ii7al)nEMt Eim| GATEWAY The entire play was a striking and fascinating production and much credit is due to the hand behind the wheel, Dean James. Now how about the future. We must not think of the past and present alone, nor just the future, but both — and. Consequently Ave are looking forward to next year ' s dramatic work with eager eyes and great expectations. (East: Hon.

Our Queen of the May was to have been crowned on the University campus, hut at a late hour these plans had to be changed because of the sudden downpour of rain, and Jacob ' s Hall became the scene of the festivities. At 7:30, the royal procession left the main building; as they approached the Hall, the Court Maidens sang their May Day song. Margaret Powell, the Royal Herald, led the procession. She was dressed in a white Grecia n gown with a pink mantle, and carried a trumpet hung with a chain of flowers. The Queen ' s Dancers followed; first the Special Dancers, Mabel Rasmussen and Dorothy Merriam, then the May Pole girls and the Girls of the Basket Dance. Upon entering the Hall, the procession marched into a circle and the Royal Herald mounted the stairs, to the side of the throne. The dancers approached and arranged themselves in two rows. Down this aisle, formed by the Court Maidens, the two Special Maids, Vesta Beavers and Dorothy Gray, first ad- vanced to the throne. They were dressed in white Grecian gowns with light green tunics, and each bore a Shepherd ' s crook with lilies. The Maicl of Honor, G Sixty-nine fi ;?TtiS f i? 7 i GATEWAY Izma Tucker, next approached. Her gown was of white silk with a pink satin mantle, and in her arms she carried a large bouquet of Mrs. Ward ' s roses. She was followed by little Charlotte Fisher, carrying the queen ' s crown upon a light green satin pillow. Then advanced the Queen, Lucille Kendall, carrying a bouquet of Killarney roses. She was dressed in a white silk Grecian gown with a long light green satin train, which was carried by two small pages, Ralph Dickerson and Jack Longsdorf. Upon reaching the throne, she was crowned by the Maid of Honor amid the songs of the court, The Queen, surrounded by her Special Maids, then watched her dancers. Mabel Rasmussen and Dorothy Mer- riam, dressed in blue and pink, gave a special dance. The May Pole Dancers, in their bright gowns of rainbow colors, danced gayly around the pole, and the Girls of the Basket Dance strewed lilacs before their Queen. Thus ended the rites attending the crowning of our Queen. fart tHuifl — TJauliemlle The first sketch, given by the Freshman Class, " Wal ' , I Swan, " was staged in a railroad station. The station agent, Jack Beacom, had troubles of his own. " Grandma " Huberman, with little " Nellie " Lake, was the first of his troubles. They were quickly followed by the arrival of " Old Maid " Jones, who insisted that she wanted to go to Kiss-a-me. As the " Fat Man, " Mr. Salisbury was a decided success, and his laugh was contagious. Alta Davis, as the Deaf Woman, was greeted with laughter. HEAD-WORK OP GALA DAY — CENTRAL COMMITTEE Seventy 1 9 2 O GATEWAY hftsffiy i i The Junior Class was represented by Izma Tucker, who recited the " Rose of Washington Square, " accompanied by Dorothy Griffis at the piano. " The Trials of a Director- ' was next on the program. This was presented by the Preparatory students. As the director, Basil Binns did his duty in try- ing out the aspirants for the stage. Margaret Strehlow and Brother Archie were mirth provoking. Waldron Golding, as Hiram Hanks, was a source of much fun. Jim Bailey, the Office Boy, announced the applicants for the stage, Following this there was a specialty. Gene Grau impersonated a French- man, and Dorothy Edwards gave " Little Boy Blue, " accompanied by Mar- guerite Carnal on the piano. The members of the Kindergarten Klub sang " Slumber Sea. " The Sophomore Class gave a modern version of " A Day on the Nile. " Roberta Coulter was Cleopatra. Ray Phelps, as Bohulahunkus, faithfully at- tended his queen, furnishing her with beauty needs and fanning her with a " Little Polly " broom. Gene Grau figured as Mark Antony. Julius Brown, as Caesar, entered court on roller skates. After the " Egyptians " had talked over the faculty, Dorothy Gray, as Fatima, rendered an Egyptian song, and the ladies of the court gave a dance in true Egyptian style. The University Quartette, Harold Blough, Paul Pressly, Harry Mogge and Lorin Thompson, sang between the acts. This was followed by the Novelty Song and Dance act, given by the Misses Barentsen, Johnston, Clark and Dow, and by Messrs. Phelps, Blough, Beacom and Broadwell. It was a very pretty black and white act, composed of singing and dancing, and of music on stringed instruments. The program ended with the Senior play. The class presented " The Trouble at Satterlee ' s. " Mabel Rasmussen, as Dorothy, and Jessie Tennant, as Alice, were the ringleaders of the girls of the school. Mary Killian, as Mildred, and Peg Powell, as Marian, also attended Miss Satterlee ' s correct boarding school. Mabel Norris as the Irish maid, Kathleen, was horrified at Dorothy ' s and Alice ' s plans to murder Miss Satterlee as she supposed the victim to be. The part of dignified Miss Satterlee Avas played by Grace Thomp- son. When matters were explained the curtain fell with Kathleen ' s " It ' s an ill wind that blows good to nobody. ' ' And thus ended Gala Day of 1920. 19 2 0 5 Seventy-one 2farmom| (Jpttartrtt? Early last Fall four enterprising young men, with harmonious voices, got together and formed what became known as the " Harmony Quartette. " They were first presented before the public eye in a musical " skit " entitled " At Harmony Junction, " which was presented at the Frosh Party. Since that time they have developed into real experts at harmony and appeared before the school and general public several times. Their work in the school play and on Gala Day will be especially remembered. The personnel of the quartette at the end of the school year is Harry Mogge, first tenor; Harold Blough, second tenor ; Lorin Thompson, first bass, and Paul Pressly, second bass. (irrljpatra In the foregoing and aftergoing pages you will notice there is no likeness or reference of an orchestra, but for the benefit of those who are not well enough acquainted to know the facts we will explain. Though there has not been an organized orchestra body at the school this year, at every occasion where there was any demand for music, there was never a lack of any. Whether it was an athletic event, the play, Gala Day, or for our entertainment in the 19 2 0 Seventy-two GATEWAY m M mmsw MM ms Chapel room, there were always those on hand who could satisfy the appetite of any music lover. There was Mildred Buzza, who tickled the piano ; Mildred Bliss, Earl Pulte and Jack Miller, " Fiddlers Three; " Blough with the blaring cornet; Henderson with his laughing trombone; Eychaner with his moaning saxophone; Beacom with his " rattle " (drums); Arlander with her cooing cello, and several others were always ready to answer the call. Next year a music director is promised, and there is no doubt that a first-class or- chestra will be developed from the plentiful supply of musical talent. lanja Handolm (Elub The Banjo Mandolin Club has proven itself a " howling success. " All those present at the Auditorium May 14th can vouch for the fact that those who compose the club are also " experts at harmony, " for they certainly brought down the house with " Dardanella. " And they don ' t know how to shimmy? Oh, no! Phelps just shook one of the footlights out of the stage, and Blough almost upset the piano on which he was reclining. Broadwell is a dexterous artist with the mandolin pick, and Jerpe always there to cover up any unharmoniousness with his piano.

(Extract from Omaha Bee) :— " Now They Know Why That Old Lady Was So Stern at Their Table. " " At the University of Omaha are two young ' turtle doves, ' a young man and a young woman. In spite of their tender years, they are engaged and they propose to devote their lives to converting the heathen. They probably will go to South America, they say. " But this little story is not about the mission field. It is about the young pair. They have a ' secret ' signal by which to convey love messages in public. This consists of a series of foot taps. When ' Lovey ' taps ' Dovey ' s ' foot five times, that means, ' Do you love me, tootsum wootsum? ' And when ' Dovey taps back on ' Lovey V foot four times, that means, ' Yes, dearie, I do, indeed. " " Not long ago they were up in the Y. W. C. A. cafeteria for lunch. After they came out, ' Dovey ' seemed not in her usual good spirits and ' Lovey ' asked her what was the matter. " ' Why, you didn ' t ask me once while we were eating lunch whether I loved you, ' pouted ' Dovey. ' " ' Oh, but I did, " Dovey " , ' exclaimed ' Lovey. ' ' I asked you four times and you never answered me. ' " And now the young pair know why the stern looking old lady who sat at the same table with them looked so stern on at least four different occasions while they were eating.

That is why we are so proud of the Paige clientele. Paige cars are designed to carry their appeal to the most cultured. And a list of Paige owners show that Paige cars DO carry an irresistible appeal to the most discriminating purchasers in America. It cannot be said of one Paige car that it is more charming in appearance than its companion model. It is true of the Paige " 6-42 " Sedan, however, that it has a distinctive individuality of its own, a unique artistic grace and atmosphere of good breeding that make it the envy of modern designers. Mounted on a Paige " 6-42 " chassis, its owners are assured of lasting satisfaction in its mechanical per- formance. In the field of " light sixes " this chassis has won its way, on the strength of sheer merit, to the highest pinnacle of automotive accomplishment. $2780.00 F.O.B, Omaha NEBRASKA PAIGE COMPANY 1924 Douglas St., Omaha, Nebr.
