If the article is of good qual- ity, the sale of it may be compared somewhat to the locomotive and its train of cars ; a great force is required to start the train moving, but after it has once attained a little speed, very little power is required to keep it in motion. So it is with the Gateway. The magazine will do no one any good unless they read. It was decided therefore that a special effort should be made toward putting the Gateway in the hands of everyone of our students and everyone else who might be interested in the University. , Money talks, no less in journalism than in mining stocks, politics and so on. The more money the Gateway has at its disposal, the better paper S!- it is able to support. The largest source of our money is in the advertising that is contained in the paper. Since these two phases of the work, getting subscriptions and getting ads, required special effort each year, the Gate- l» way Staff decided that recognition of that special effort would be given in ' » the form of a silver loving cup, presented to the class which showed the highest percentage results at the end of each year. The cup was bought by donations from every member of the Gateway Staff. Following are the J regulations which govern the contest : II; With the primary intent to create in the University of Omaha a clearly defined and permanent in the advancement and the yearly success of our . -. V X » « ■ . « ■ M ■ ■ M ■ ■ ■ 3 ' University Magazine, the Gateway, we, the elect staff of the Gateway do present this cup to the University to be held and awarded yearly in accord- ance to the following- regulations : 1. A systematic campaign for subscriptions for the Gateway shall be carried on, beginning week preceeding the election of the Gateway Staff, and closed on the day of the election. 2. This contest shall be carried on by the classes of scholastic distinc- tion ; namely. Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors, 3. The rating is to be based on a percentage per capita basis thus : The number of subscriptions of each class shall be totaled and this total di- vided by the number of pupils enrolled in the class. These percentages will be kept on record until the end of the school year at a time just previous to the pubUshing of the Gateway Annual. Beginning on March 1, a campaign for advertising for the Gateway Annual will be carried on in a manner similar to that of the subscription campaign. The percentage in this case shall be based on the total monej ' value represented by the advertising which the class has reported. The two final averages will be averaged and the mean calculated. The class whose final average is the larg-est will be awarded the cup to be held until any oth- er class in the following- year shall prove itself more worthy of its posses- sion by defeating the possessor in a campaign similar to the one described. 4 The name of the class holding the cup each year will be engraved on the cup. 5. In recognition of the effort by individuals of any class, a yearly subscription to the Gateway including the Annual will be awarded to the party of each class who has obtained the greatest number of subscriptions and the largest value in ads. In case one party should receive the greatest number of subscriptions and another of the same class, the g-reatest value in ads, each of them shall receive a subscription to the Gateway to include an Annual. 6. The cup shall be formally presented to the winning class at an en- tertainment called the Gateway Social to be held at the University not later than five weeks after the beginning of school ; said social to be given by the members of the classes which were defeated in the contest. The results of the campaign of this year are as follows : Subscriptions Ads. Mean. Seniors 50% 0 35% Juniors 30 25 15 Sophomores 45 20 25 Freshmen 65 oO 70 We congratulate the Freshman class on its splendid work and hope that their enthusiasm will carry on into the Sophomore class of 1921-22. Al Kastman, freshman, received the largest number of ads while Marion Fish- er of the same class takes the prize for subscriptions. Pag-f f- JOSLTN HALL Page 10.

JENKINS ' REVIEW THE current year soon to close has been in every way the very best one in the history of the University of Omaha. It opened with a consid- erable increase in the enrollment of regular college students. This was chiefly due to the large number of Freshmen who entered as regular students and so completely identified themselves with the life and interests of the institution. As must be manifest, this is the kind of an increase that particularly augurs vvell for the growth of the institution ; for, while irregular and special students constitute a large and important element in the student body and contribute immensely to the variety and breadth of our educational inter- ests, nevertheless, it is the students who are pursuing courses with a view to graduation that constitute the nucleating center of the student body. To these we must especially look for the distinctive esprit de corps, for solidarity and unity of interests, for rightly conceived ideals, for well di- rected initiative, and for the perpetuation of our most cherished traditions. Accordingly, it is in the highest degree gratifying to note that the number of regular students is distinctly larger than in any previous year. It is all the more irrtportant to note this fact in view of the admission to the insti- tution of a large group of Federal Vocational Students whose entrance greatly reduces the percentage of regular students in attendance. The year has been one of incessant and varied activity on the part of the students. This activity has not, to be sure, been all spent in the prose- cution of studies. It has, however, been spent in wholesome ways and un- dertakings which have betokened splendid haiTnony, enthusiasm, enter- prise and loyalty to the Univei ' sity. While sharp rivalries have been man- ifest at times, the general disposition has been for the suppi ' ession of par- tisanship spirit and of clique rule. Too much praise cannot be given to the Y. M. C. A. and the Y. W. C. A. for their efforts in connection with the i eception of new students at the opening of the school year. It was a glorious success and set a splendid precedent for the succeeding social events of the year. These organiza- tions have rendered signal service not only in promoting that moral and spiritual growth which is essential to well-rounded personal development, [« ' i| but also in sustaining and crystalizing that sense of common interest and that co-operation which is so vital to the general welfare of the institution. The class parties will be long remembered as highly enjoyable events. It would be difficult and, in any case, graceless to make comparisons. Suf- Page 22. fice it to say that an incoming- Freshman class puts up a difficult challenge, not only to other college classes, but to all successors, in bidding them to measure up in " pep, " initiative, and ingenuity in the matter of entertain- ment. There is no more pardonable and wholesome rivalry possible than that between the classes in their ambitions each to contribute a social event that will live in memories of Auld Lang Syne. We shall not soon forget many pleasant and profitable chapel exer- cises during the year. Daily convocation affords a great meeting-point and is the clearing-house of student interests and activities. It promotes the get-together spirit as nothing else can do. In fact, it takes a little re- hgion to hai-monize all kinds of human interests. In the sphere of athletics the University has made a distinctly good record. Very creditable has been the co-operation of the Student Man- agement and the Coach with the Faculty in the effort to place our ath- letics on the highest plane of academic honor. Wfe are resolved that the problems and handicaps which beset us as a young institution in actualiz- ing our ambitions in intercollegiate contests, shall not induce us to juggle with established standards and ideals of academic sportsmanship. Fur- thermore, we cannot permit our chances for recognized championship to be jeopardized by permitting men to play on the team who do not have an academic standing- or whose playing only results in disqualifying the team for any recog-nition on the part of those institutions whom we desii- ' e to emulate. We are not primarily an athletic association incidentally con- ducting some education work. Rather are we an educational institution cultivating brawn as an accessory to brain. Spurious and spasmodic devo- tion to studies does not suffice for eligibility to a place on our teams. DEAN W, GILBERT .TAMES Page 24. FACULTY HEADS DANIEL E. JENKINS, M. A.. Ph. D., D. D.

JUDGE A. C. TROT ' P A RETROSPECT SURPASSING all other years in the number of students enrolled in its classes, the Law School of the University of Omaha opened the 1920- 1921. season with 42 students. The total enrollment at the close of the year was officially given at 65. The second semester of the school year be- gan with an additional enrollment of 30 students, many of whom were ex- service men, electing the study of law as provided by the Federal Board of Vocational Training. Mai ' ked progress was made during the school year in student activi- ties and organizations, and the spirit, manifested at the meetings of both the upper and lower classes, indicated a growth which portended perman- ence and a more serious tone of scholastic achievement. The debating so- ciety of the upper classes elected Gordon A. Nicholson, President; R. E. Musgrave, Vice-President; Steven Wirtz, Secretary. Those elected offi- cers of the lower class were, — Wade Reeves, President; Robert P. Kim- ball, Vice-President; Emily R. Allen, Secretary and Treasurer. This class entertained in February at a dancing party given at the Strehlow Terrace Apartments and in May a dance was given at the Happy Hollow Club by Mr. and Mrs. William M. Burton. The moot court, with its usual interesting experiences, incident to its character, was enjoyed and proclaimed highly beneficial by all who attend- ed this class. The subject was taught by J. C. Travis. S. E. Turner of the West Publishing Company of MinneapoUs spoke before the students and faculty members, and is quoted in the daily press as expressing- " astonishment at the rapid progress made by the law school, which in his opinion surpassed any he had visited. " R. L. Daly, also of The West Publishing Company, and well known to the University students, conducted a three-day course of lectures on the practical working side of the lawyers ' profession. Mr. Daly ' s talk on " The Working Tools of a Law- yer " was greatly appreciated and commented upon in the daily press. Con- cluding this talk, Mr. Daly recited several of his well known poems which depicted his genuine pathos and deep insight into human nature. Those composing- the faculty for the past year were: Judge A. C. Troup, Dean, Ethics ; Charles W. Haller, Wills and Chattel Mortgages ; Cal- vin Taylor, Contracts; William M. Burton, Torts and Damages; Judge James Fitzg-erald, Criminal Law and Criminal Procedure; Thomas B. Dy- sart. Elementary Law; Howard Saxton, Federal Procedure and Sales; Dr. D. E. Jenkins, President of University of Omaha, Logic; Amos Thomas, Constitutional Law; Ralph Van Orsdel, Bills and Notes; John A. Dill, Ele- mentary Law and Contracts. Page 2!). Page 30. Pase 31.

SENIORS IN the fall of 1917 lads and lasses came from various groves and meadows to enter the field of advanced education in the halls of our beloved insti- tution. To be sure not all was fine weather and sunshine from the start, for a few months before we had entered the war to make our country safe for Democracy, many of the boys from both Junior and Senior classes had ansM ered to the call of the colors. So things went on for a couple of years and all tried hard to remember that " The shadows only prove that the sun still shines. " Their Junior year soon passed and Seniors they became with the " Back to college movement, " among the returaed service men. In the fall of 1920, Izma Tucker was left to tell the story of her class in the college of Liberal Arts. It has been her task, not only to tell the story, but to witness the persevering scholasticism which has attained an honourable goal and which has become a record of history not to be frowned upon. During the last two years four of our number, Joe Goldstone, Abe Steinberg, Otto Kostal and Austin Owens have continued their work in the Nebraska College of Medicine and already have attained a running start for the profession of medicine to which they look forward. Austin Owens, our I ' epresentative in the World War, greatly inspired by his experiences, pro- ceeds to his profession with a profound realization of the importance of the practical use of medicine and surgery. Miss Esther E. Janssen, after having taught in the public schools of Knoxville, Iowa, for the two years preceeding 1920-21, resumed he]- train- ing here last fall. Her presence with us this year has afforded valuable re- sources to the University and as we look back five years from now, her in- fluence will have been detected and reverenced in the light of progi ' ess which she has taken every opportunity afforded to support in the past year. From the Law School degrees have been granted to Mr. Rasmussen. Mr. Rasmussen, who according to Professor Thomsen, has been an honor student from the beginning of the course and prospects bid well for the suc- cess of his future law career. Dr. Shearer M. D., D. D. S., B. A., has received his B. A. degree from the University of Omaha this year. Dr. Shearer is perhaps the best oral surgeon in this part of the United States and his success in his profession is acknowledged by all leading authorities. He is a member of the Delta-Sig- ma Delta and the Phi Rho Sigma National Fraternities. We feel it an honor IM»»B»»« »W«» a ■ ■ W I Fage 42. p w■v v. ■ « i sv, v, v, v to grant Dr. Shearer his B. A. deg-ree. We know that he is interested in the University and that he is always ready to speak a kind word for the U. of 0. J To say the least, Dwight Higbee, our theological prospect has made his presence pleasing and highly profitable to the class. A great amount of ef- fort and interest has been put forth by Dwight in advancing the general welfare of the school. We know that his career will be crowned with res- plendent success. Miss Ella Knight, one of Omaha ' s splendid school instructors and G. E. Heacock, Superintendent of Schools of Auburn, Nebraska, also join the 1 ranks of Liberal Arts students. I ■: ■ ■ ■ ■ GUY L.

JUNIORS W HEN the class of ' 22 entered the University of Omaha as Freshmen it was unequaled in size and enthusiasm by any other class. In scholarship, athletics, and all other school activities its members have maintained a record of high standards of which any class might be proud. Now three years have passed, and although many of our number have left us, we still feel that the remainder is the embodiment of that same school spirit and " pep " with which the class entered. Anyone who attended the " mixer " given by the juniors in February, will testify to the presence of genuine spirit of school loyalty and enthusiasm that was shown. As we approach the long-coveted position of Seniors we hope to demon- strate throughout our final year and as graduates that the products of the U. of 0. are second to none.

T SOPHOMORES HE class of ' 23 is the lai ' g-est that has attended our growing institu- tion. In scholarship, and in the general activities of the school the class has maintained a creditable standing. » ' J The class gave the first of the series of very pleasant class socials we have enjoyed this year. In the field of athletics the teams were ably sup- ported by sophomores, several of our warriors distinguishing themselves. The football and tennis teams were lead by our classmates. The success of the Y. W. C. A., the Y. M. C. A., the Bacucy club, and the Gateway was in a large measure brought about by the efforts of some of our best workers. The lustre of- our successes was tarnished by the sad death of our President, Harold Blough, in February. Yet, in that larger sense, we have not lost his leadership, but hold in our hearts the memory of his effective life and example. M. C. H. Pase 50. HAROLD BLOUGH JUST BEHIND LIFE ' S CURTAIN (In Memorium to Harold Blough.) Those who have gone on before Seemingly have shut the door. Those whom we see here no more Are just behind life ' s curtain.

THIS is a rather trite expression, but nevertheless a true one. The • Freshman Class has not only quantity, but also quality. Truly we are the largest class in the University, and when it comes to boosting and H displaying spirit, we maintain we rank with the highest. The Freshman • Class was well represented on both the football and basketball teams. We of the Univei ' sity are proud of the record of our teams, and of the very cap- " » able work done by the freshman cheer leaders. The Debating Team, al- I though it is in its infancy, won the respect of those with whom it came in contact. In this line also Freshmen helped to uphold the honor and ideals • of our school. The Freshman Class has met the test, it has a large honor ■ roll, and is well represented in the executive positions of the Gateway, Y. •! M. C. A., Y. W. C. A., and similar organizations. The Freshman Party lives «| in the minds of the students of the University as the most delightful and • ■ ■ ■ ■ Page 52. 1921 enjoyable function of this school year. The Freshman Gala Day Stunt made a decided hit. The Jazz orchestra with its double piano feature was all that anyone could desire. That Freshman Jazz Orchestra proved the old saying all over again, " Music hath charms to sooth the savage beast. " Of course we are not " savage beasts, " but the music did charm. These lines ai ' e not intended as a eulogy to the Freshman Class, but simply a statement of the Class all in all. The Freshman Class is proud of its place in this In- stitution. Let ' s all boost for the U. of 0. Page 53. Top Row: G. H. Selg, M. Andrejeraski, H. Ijovett, T. Gardner, L. Johnson, R. K. Under- wood. W, Sawyer, S. TronibPrs :-ird Row: L. Harman, L. Peterson, R.

FEDERAL MEN IT is because the United States Government realizes the economic vaUie of every man that it is wilhng to give to every man who fought in the World War a chance to fit himself for the business world in whatever line of work that each man seems particularly adapted to. The government has expressed this willingness by granting a sum to a vast number of men which will enable them to get a four-year college education. At the be- ginning of the second semester of the school term we had about thirty-five men enrolled. At present we have more than a hundred. These men, some of them almost to the half-century mark have come into the school and are taking hold of the work with heart and soul. They are anxious to learn and they are learning. Among the courses that are offered are commercial arithmetic, spelling, bookkeeping, telegraphy and writing. Page 54. They have not only shown their willingness to learn but they have shown their ability to do things that are essentially an asset to the Univer- sity. They take part in the chapel exercises, contribute to the Gateway fund, and any other cause that is worthy of their aid. In the Gala Day ex- ercises they reproduced a trench scene that made one feel as if he might be right in the trenches and fighting. We are glad to have them with us and we hope that the U. of O. will turn them out with the preparation that they are seeking. Page 55.

COACH ADAMS GLEN llEEVES BASKET BALL E started the 1921 basketball season on a hard fought game with Trinity College. It was one of those close and exciting games that everyone likes to see, but we happened to be one point behind Trin- ity when the final whistle blew. This game, however, showed us our weak spots and in the next two games we gave York and Tabor colleges a good trimming. Our next exploit was a trip into Iowa. Of the four games we played on the trip, we won two and lost two. We lost to Western Union College by one point and to Trinity, at Sioux City the next night. Both games were hard fought, fast and clean, always showing the first class sportsman-like playing that the U. of O. always puts up whether it is winning or losing. The last night of that trip we played Wayne Normal and there we came into our own again, giving the Normalites a good trimming on their own floor before a large crowd. Our next game was at home when we turned the tables on Western Union. We showed them how to play basketball on a real floor. Our last game was at Midland. We lost. We did not lose because of playing a su- «n n ■ ■ II ■ M ■_■ ■ ■ - ■ M ■ ■ » mm mm m Page 62. perior team but rather because our men were greatly handicapped by play- ing in the small gym which was afforded them at Midland. We fought to the end making them work hard for everything they got. We might say that the University of Omaha ' s basketball was not as successful as it was last year, but the record of a score does not always prove the entire character of a team. We have no apologies to offer on the first class material which we had on our team for we feel that our team work was equal and in many cases superior to that of any team in the state, but often times the physical handicaps that attend the playing of the season make the most successful work impossible in the face even of super- ior training and team work. Though our game record is not perfect, we feel that we have the perfect good will of every team we played, which is to us a far gi-eater victory than an unbroken chain of game victories. The letter men of this year ' s basketball team are Wade Reeves, M. Pressley, P. Pressley, Paul Davis, Leonard Stromberg, Wallace Banner and Lorin Thompson. All of our men are good clean sports that the school is behind heart and soul. Others who helped make the team but v ho did not get letters are Ralph Gilfry, Al Kastman, Harmon Wilmoth, Dave Ches- neau, Donald Head and Bob Golding. These men deserve just as much credit as the letter men for without them it would have been impossible for Coach Adams to develop the splendid team that he did. Coach Adams worked hard with his team all year and it is due to his unfailing patience and perseverance that the success of the team is due. The ability to hold the wholesome respect of every one of his men is the final test of a good Coach. Morey Pressley was Captain of this year ' s team. Morey was one of our hardest players and workers. He has always conducted himself as the gentleman which the position that he held demanded. Stromberg has been elected the Captain for the coming year. We certainly congi-atulate him as he is in many ways the most promising man for the position that we could have hoped foi ' in several years. L. T. Page 63. Top: Kenneth Baker, Piatt Taylor.

TENNIS CLUB BELIEVING that tennis is one of the best sports for all aroimd devel- opment and of out-door pleasure, students of the University of Omaha formed a tennis club in the Spring of 1920. The successful first year lead to the forming of many plans for perpetuating the club. Wet weather delayed the season several weeks, but the tournament planned was held. The students spent long afternoons during May and June playing in the shady courts of Kountze park. Winners had not played the final game when the Gateway Annual went to press, and the winners could not be announced in that number. Officers elected during the early part of the season are: David Broad- well, president; Piatt Taylor, vice-president; Josephine Connell, secretary, and Kenneth Baker, treasurer. Any student at the school, interested in tennis is eligible for membership in the club. 1 r.

The purpose of this meeting was to leave the student gov- ernment affairs in good condition for next year ' s council. Aside from active interests, this year ' s Council has been a real force in the promotion of general good feeling throughout the school. On April eleventh, the question of whether or not the traditional date for Gala Day should be changed was discussed. On account of examinations immediately preceeding Commencement, which will occur this year, in June, it was finally decided to set Gala Day as May 20. Since it is the most representative body in the University, the Student Council reserved the chapel period of April 12 for the election of the Gala Day Central Commit- tee. At the meeting of April 18, five four-minute speakers for chapel were suggested to arouse enthusiasm for Gala Day. As one of the means for promoting school spirit, the Council decided to take charge of the chapel for Tuesdays during the remainder of the semes- ter. The first of these programs was vocal music by Clyde Bennett, violin solos by Mildred Bliss and Gertrude Thiem, and readings in character by Mrs. Evans. The second was a jazz orchestra under the leadership of Rob- ert Jenkins ; and the third a vocal program by Mrs. Protzman, with Miss Zozaya as accompanist. With such talent among us, our school ' s musical in- terests have certainly a future before them. The motto for this year ' s Student Council has been " Get Behind and Push, " especially in school activities and college spirit. Page 67. HELEN JVrcDONALD. Sgt. at Arms •!

The Wednesday meetings have been especially delightful. Each week the social committee has provided appiopriate lectures or entertainment. In accordance with Dean W. Gilbert James ' plan in providing special speakers for chapel each day, the Y. W. C. A. feels that it has fulfilled its obligation most nobly. According to an established precedent, the Y. W. and the Y. M. early in the fall gave a joint " g-et acquainted " reception for the newly enrolled students. This was followed by a tea given by the Cabinet in honor of Miss Curran, the National Secretary, and the new girls. Then came the Christmas party. Oh! girls, will we ever forget the Christmas tree, " trimmins, " ' n everything? Before Easter Miss Durkee, Religious Work Director of the down town Association, gave us a series of lectures based on the pre-lenten subjects. The National Y. W. C. A. con- stitution was adopted by the Univers ity Y. W. in March. This constitution necessitated the election of officers in March. With this splendid start we feel that the gi ' owth of the Y. W. C. A. will keep pace with that of the Uni- versity, and next year will see many of oui ' hopes realized. K. F. Page 69. m Lorin Thompson, Esther E. Janssen, Izma Tucker. UTOPIAN THE Utopian literary society is as old as the Omaha University; it was the second organization of the school. At first membership was lim- ited to g-irls only, but later was extended to the boys, and now automat- ically includes every student in the University. The Utopian society aims to create a lasting- interest in literature by means of various literary programs. This year the society was reorganized with Esther E. Janssen as pres- ident, Izma Tucker, vice president, Lorin Thompson, secretary-treasurer. The big event of the year was the Utopian Christmas party at which about two hundred students and alumnae were present. The party was held at the home of Dr. D. E. Jenkins, December 30th. The interesting literary and musical program included musical numbers by Mr. and Mrs. Charles Thiem and Gertrude, a violin solo by Mildred Bliss, a vocal solo by Flora Jones, readings by Lillian Baker and Dorothy Edwards, and an interesting description of the founding of the Utopian society by Miss Case, alumnus.

RGANIZED primarily to enable members to succeed in the newspap- er game, " The Pups " do not neglect social activities. Dances, parties, auto rides and ex.ursions to places of interest down town, filled out the year ' s program for the journalists. " We won ' t let anyone look down on us, " declares Florice Shaw, pi-esi- dent of " The Pups. " Just to keep above the ordinary run of people, the members of the journalism fraternity gave several theatre parties in the gallery— Mrs. Jolley says " shutes " — of the Brandeis theatre. After the shows our enterprising society reporters— Miss Leona Le ' ary and Miss Lu- cile Latham — interviewed the actors. An exciting hunt after the graves of several people now residing in Forest Lawn, took up several hours before initiation on April 18. Mai orie (Jerry) Current and Miss Mildred Alderman enjoyed seats on gravestones during the performance by the remainder of the class. Of the initiation, the less said the better. Suffice to say that all the charter members doing the initiating enjoyed the ceremony immensely and the pledges also did — after it was over. Excursions to the slums of the city gave the students a thorough know- ledge of the lower part of Omaha. A dinner at a low-brow " hash house " was eaten by all but three or four of the party. Members of the " Pups " in the Omaha (Yellow Dog) chapter are: Flor- ice Shaw, Mildred Alderman, Josephine Connell, Paul Jarrett, Margaret Dow, Paul Davis, Leona Leary, Lucile Latham, Richard Scholes, Leonard Theissen, Zedenka Sedlacek, Bernice DuRae and Bonnie Jones. Richard Scholes. Roy Smith, Wendell Wilson, Robert Sackett. DEBATING THE time-honored institution of debating was revived with enthusiasm during- the closing year, with the result that Universiy of Omaha was represented by a Debating Team. Though the debates held were but few, the custom of debating was reestablished, and now promises to be per- manent. Debating started during the month of November, when a group of young men organized the University Debating Society. Wade Reeves was elected Chairman and held his office throughout the year. After the or- ganization of the society, further steps were taken to organize a represen- tative debating team which would take issue with other schools. -.1. M Jt M K ik « » Fa e 74. Many discussions were held, and many questions were investigated. Under the direction of Dean James the ckib took form. Interest among- the students grew, and the season promised to be successful. But debates were hard to get, for the other colleges had scheduled their engagements during the previous year or during the fall. Finally, however, a date was decided upon with Tabor College and after several preliminary debates the team journeyed to the Iowa town. The members of the team were Roy Smith, captain, Wendell Wilson, and Robert Sackett. In the person of Captain Smith the team had a man of much experience and great ability. Mr. Smith has the faculty of com- bining the sagacity of the debator Mdth the force of an orator, and present- ing the whole in a straight-forward manner that appeals in its constancy. Mr. Smith not only captained the University team, but officiated in a sim- ilar way in the local De Molay Society in which he has won recognition as a debator and orator. Mr. Wendell Wilson is also an experienced man, having won recogni- tion during past years. Mr. Wilson ' s gi ' eatest asset is that of discovering vast and vital facts which he fonnulates into convincing arguments. His ability to diagnose the arguments of the opposition seems to be inherent, and his force in refutation had much to do with the debating team ' s suc- cess. Mr. Robert Sackett is an orator of diffei ' ent type. His force lies in his dignity, and his masterful knowledge of the subject matter. Like Mr. Wil- son, he has a great variety of data and statistics at his command, and these he uses with an ease which speaks of study and application. Mr. Sackett has had less experience than either of his colleagues, but his bearing and his dignity have put him on a par with debators of greater experience. We predict a bright future for the trio, and earnestly hope that the team can come back for the next year to start debate work on time and win the honorable recognition that is their due. L. J. S. Fiancis Edwards Mildred Parks Gladys Munson, President BACUCY THE aim of the Bacucy is to further the interest in kindergarten work, and to develop a sense of true social relationship among- its members. The club feels that it has ended a very successful year. Besides the regular monthly meetings, the society has had two hikes, the last given this spring in honor of Miss Foxe ' s birthday. Several candy sales have been given during the year, the proceeds of which have been used for supplies to be used in the Practise kindergarten. On February 26th, the Bacucy gave a " Kid Party " for the whole student body. The party was voted one of the most successful of the year. No other function did so much to create a general feeling of good fellowship. Ivy Day was celebrated with great cer- emony by the Bacucy also. The Senior kindergai-ten girls planted ivy to represent the kindergarten class. Here ' s for a better and bigger Bacucy next year. : Si Pag e 76. DRflMTIGS I I ' aye 77.

SUNSET WE would say that the dramatic art of the University has not de- chned any respect but rather has kept its pace with the other ac- tivities of the school. Any one who saw the presentation of " Sun- set " as a part of the annual dramatic production of the University of Oma- ha Players ' Club readily agreed that the talent displayed on the part of ev- ery one taking part was commendable not only as amateur ability but also as productions smacking of the professionalism of productions recognized as being first class stage material. The cast was as follows : Mr. Rivers (a rather pompous old man) Robert Jenkins Lawrence Leigh (a young barrister) Kenneth Baker Azariah Stodd (a sporting young countryman). .Harmon Wilmoth Aunt Drucilla (a prim old lady).... Rheuvilla Blair Lois Rivers (Mr. River ' s daughter).. Hazel Zerbe Joan Jasper (Lois ' half-sister)... ....Elizabeth Taylor The plot centers about the love affair of Lois and Lawrence who really love each other but whose disposition toward each other does not have the approval of Aunt Drucilla. Azariah Stodd is her choice. Azariah loves Page 7S. DRAMATIC CLUB Top Row: Edith Monson, Clyde Bennett, Marjorie Currant. Ralph Gilfry, Alta Davis, Harmon Wilmoth, Reuvilla Blair.

SUNSET-Continued Lois and hopes to marry her but on being forcefully informed by Lois her- self that she does not intend to marry him, he condescends not to push the matter any further but assures Miss Rivers that he will " keep himself open " in case that she should change her mind about marrying the " other fellow. " Joan loves Lawrence also, not knowing that her sister is in love with him at the same time. Lois thinks the matter over seriously and fin- ally decides after all that Azariah, although a poor country boy would make the most congenial husband. Joan takes advantage of the opportun- ity and " nabs " onto Lawrence, not quite decided as to whether she is pleased with the turn of affairs or not. With the blessing of Mr. Rivers upon his daughter, Joan and her groom-to-be, Aunt Drucilla testifies to her happiness in the betrothal of her niece Lois to her ideal, Azariah. Page 79. rage SU. Gateway LAST but not least on the prograin was Barbara, the compHmentary play in which every one of the cast stai ' red in their own character. The cast was as follows: Barbara (a dressmaker).... Lillie Leland (Barbara ' s adopted sister) Cecil Norton (a poor young author) Mr. Finnecum (an old country lawyer)... -Marjorie Currant ....Dorothy Griffis Clyde Bennett Wade Reeves Barbara, somewhat wearied from the toil of the day, diverts from the monotony of her duties to relate a grievious account of her unfortunate young life ; how her mother and brother in the course of a stormy voyage at sea, wei-e lost in the storm and drowned. She was the only survivor of the family with nothing left to identify her, save a locket containing a por- trait found around her mother ' s neck. In this disparity of thought she longed for a brother or some one whom she might call a relative. Cecil in- terrupts the conversation when he stops in to make a call on Miss Leland Page who receives him very coldly. Although she really thinks a great deal of him she takes advantage of his thick-headed disposition and pushes him around from one side of the room to the other until she finally decides to leave the room and Cecil to the mercy of the taunts of Barbara. Barbara fans his passion into a fury by making him believe that Lillie is in love with some other man. In the meantime, Mr. Finnecum, the lawyer, ap- pears on the scene and explains that Cecil is the heir to a large fortune left him by his aunt. Cecil wins the heart of Lillie thus making Cecil a brother to Barbara, a circumstance which satisfied her longing for the brother she lost in the ship wreck. With the large fortune left him he immediately planned an extensive honey-moon trip to Switzerland and the Rhine and to Egypt and some other places of interest to newly-weds. Page 82.

GALA DAY THE Annual Gala Day Exercises were held the evening of Friday, May 20 ; the crowning of the May Queen comprised the first part of the ex- ercises. The procession of girls, singing the May Day song, started from the school at 7 o ' clock and marched over to Kountze Park, where the crowning was to take place. The Herald, Esther Janssen, who was dressed in a white Grecian robe with a mantle of light blue, and who carried a silver trumpet hung with flowers, led the procession. After her came the archers, in light summer dresses, the May Pole girls, in pink and the other special dancers, in blue, yellow, and green. As these advanced to the throne, thay formed an aisle thru which the Queen and her attendants passed. First came the two special maids, the Sophomore maid, Elizabeth Taylor, and the Freshman maid, Eleanor Madgett, who were both clad in white Grecian gowns with pale green mantles, and who carried white staffs surmounted with white lilies. Preceding the Queen was the Maid of Honor, Dorothy Edwards, who wore a white gown with a pink satin mantle, and who carried pink and white roses. After her came little Charlotte Fisher, carrying the ' v %v.v, v, v.v. v. v.v.v.v. v.v.v. v.v. v.v.v.v.v .vvv. Page S3. Tzma Tucker.

Then advanced the Queen, Izma Tucker, car- rying a boquet of red and white roses, and wearing a white silk robe with a long light green satin train, which was carried by two small pages, Daniel Jenkins, Jr., and Charles Miller. As the Queen advanced, the long line of archers and dancers knelt before her, and remained kneeling until after the coronation. When the Queen had reached the throne and had taken her po- sition, the Herald blew her trumpet and announced, as the Maid of Honor placed the crown upon the Queen ' s head, that Izma Tucker was thereby crowned Queen of the May. The special dancers then danced before the Queen, as she sat in state, surrounded by her attendants. The Freshman May Pole girls, dressed in hght pink gowns, danced merrily around the May Pole ; the Sophomores, dressed as watteau shepherdesses, gave a quaint Old English dance; the Fairies, in yellow dresses with huge yellow bows, danced over the lawn like dainty butterflies, and the Iris girls, in fluffy green gowns, gave a graceful Page 84. little dance. To complete the entertainment, Alice Frazier, dressed in a white silk Grecian gown, gave a solo scarf dance. After the dances, the archers and special dancers remained in line un- til the Queen and her attendants had passed ; then, keeping their foiTnation, they followed her back to the school. Thus ended one of the prettiest Gala Day festivities held by the University of Omaha. Page 85, GALA DAY ENTERTAINMENT THE 20th of May, 1921, will be long remembered as one of the most suc- cessful Gala Days ever held at the University of Omaha. For weeks beforehand there was a spirit of cooperation and willingness to work shown throughout the student body. The result was highly gratifying to the Central Committee, faculty, students, and in fact to all that witnessed the performance. There could have been nothing prettier than the May Day procession, the crowning of the Queen and the dancing, not to speak of the perfect weather. To add to the festivity of the occasion the stunts, which were given afterwards in the gym, showed, as one newspaper put it, a truly professional touch ; and what higher praise could we ask ? One of the features of the evening was the " peppy " music furnished by the orchestra. If any moment could have been said to be dull the orches- tra made our toes wiggle with their jazz music. The Freshmen demonstrat- ed that they stick together literally and artistically, in their three piano act. Next came the quartette who sang some of our old favorites. The Juniors conducted a very realistic clinic, the gruesome reality of which seemed to give the audience great cause for mirth. The " Folliettes " came next with clever skit, in which several of the members gave a vivid impression of real affection for one another. Izma Tucker treated us with the spectacle of a " Sweet Mamma " getting mad. Then followed a bright little playlet of college life given by the Sophomores. To make us feel at home they " spilled " sev- eral bright bits about our own school life and students. " Peggy ' s Parasol " was a pretty picture, composed of a dozen pretty girls who sang to us in bright costumes and fluffy parasols to match. The " Pest of the Orderly " amused us greatly with its picture of the trials of the officers, and the " rookie of the thirteenth squad " with his " dere mabel. " Then we enjoyed the scene in which the service men gave us a sample of real trench life, with the songs, jokes, and the hardships of war. Everyone who witnessed the evening ' s entertainment said that it was the best program ever given at the U. of 0. To each perfonner and to each person who worked so hard is due great credit. The publicity committee es- pecially worked with untiring energy. The Central committee feels that it is to be congratulated upon the suc- cess of the entertainment, but it also feels that the whole student body had a part in making the affair a credit to the school.
