His firm friendship for our insti- tution and his particular interest in our athletes are ample warrant for dedicating this Annual to him. Dr. J. H. Vance Main Entrance A View of the Campus THE University of Omaha Campus is situated in one of the most beautiful parts of the city. Rows of maples arch their branches across all the nearby streets and the campus itself has many fine old trees. But campus life suffers many difficulties that are unknown to the larger schools and universities. There are no dormitories to pour their out-of-town students into the campus for a playground. How- ever, the summer months and warm days find many of the students studying beneath the trees or walking here and there at leisure. The two main buildings on the campus are good substantial structures worthy of a growing institution. And, anticipating a little, the next few years will see several more buildings added to the Omaha Uni- versity to accommodate the ever growing enrollment. [7] [8] Domestic Science Laboratory [ 10] AMmm mm -I X - oo 1 11 1 Dr. D. E. Jenkins Dr. Jenkins ' Review THE close of the present school year marks the thirteenth milestone in the progress of the University of Omaha toward the goal of its destined greatness as an institution of learning and human uplift. The University will be just thirteen lucky years old on next Com- mencement Day. It will, so to speak, emerge from its institutional childhood into early adolescence. Its beginnings were very humble. No blare of trumpets announced its advent. No munificent endow- ment started it on its career. One wealthy citizen, who afterwards became the institution ' s greatest benefactor, Mr. George A. Joslyn, having heard of the enterprise, made a provisional offer towards its launching, providing that the citizens of Omaha and its vicinity would raise a specified sum. As yet, the need and possibilities of such an institution had not been sufficiently evinced to command the financial support of monied citizens and, consequently, Mr. Joslyn ' s generous offer was not met. Nevertheless, the infant enterprise exhibited tenac- ity of life. It began to thrive and grow in spite of obstacles seemingly insurmountable, the good Lord only knows how and why. Without endowment of funds it lived on optimism and confidence of its worth- while-ness, as an undertaking. Thirteen years is a considerable period in the life of an individual human being. It covers the period of transition from infancy to ado- lescence, from adolescence to the time when one is " of age, " from this period, in turn, to early prime, from early prime to " middle life, " and, finally, from " middle life " to eventual " old age. " But it is a very brief span of years in the upbuilding of an institution like ours with its limitless possibilities of beneficent adjustment to the ever multiplying civic and cultural needs of a great and growing center of population. Accordingly, we are only beginning to give tangible evidence of the manifold forms of service we may render to the city and to society, at large, as we pass out of our institutional childhood into adolescence and into that still larger growth of which childhood is but the portent and promise. The most distinct forward steps in the progress of the University that have been taken during the current school year may be said to have been taken in connection with the establishment of departments of Engineering and of Music. [13 1 Through the generosity of a very constant friend, who desires her name to be withheld, we have been enabled to install in the basement of the Gymnasium lathes for woodwork and for metal work with the most necessary accessories. We are now equipped to conduct the fun- damental practical courses including the first two years of the Engin- eering Schools. Our facilities and equipment will necessitate our limiting, for the present, the number of students who shall be per- mitted to take these courses. Only those who give evidence of proper preparation and aptitudes will be admitted to the training. Great strides have been made in developing the musical interests of the students. Glee Clubs have been organized and have done both themselves and the school great credit by their clever and pleasing per- formances at the public concerts held in the city Auditorium and at various community centers. The choral work of the Girls ' Glee Club before the State Medical Association greatly pleased the doctors, so, likewise, the singing of the Boys ' Glee Club at a series of elite gather- ings in the prominent churches, at the Central High School, and else- where. Great credit is due to Prof. Krueger and to Mr. Campbell, of the city Y. M. C. A. for their skillful training of the two choral groups. It is particularly gratifying to have made such an auspicious begin- ning in the way of organizing a School of Music. The corps of in- structors which has been secured to assume charge of the training in vocal and instrumental music comprises foremost artists of the city in their respective lines. There are many talented musicians in Omaha, but their interests and efforts have been too individualistic and scatter- ing. As a result, Omaha has not become particularly recognized abroad as a musical center. We are confident that a Conservatory of Music organized, as is ours, with a generous regard to the interests and possible contributions of all musicians and lovers of music, is the proper and only effective agency to put Omaha on the map musically. Moreover, experience shows that such a school can best be promoted, stabilized, and standardized in close affiliation with the cultural courses of a College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. In retrospect and in prospect, in memory and in anticipation for the future, the year has been a splendid one.

[34] Nelson Hartford Helen Vancura George Eychaner Vice President President Secretary) Harold Boisen Treasurer THE class of 1923 has maintained the good work of its past two years. Being unusually large and active it has had a marked influence upon the school life. Several of the class have held positions requiring executive ability and have acquitted themselves in a manner which brought honor to the class. The Hare and Hound Chase, the Class Party given in conjunction with the Seniors, and the class act for Gala Day were exceptionally successful, not only because of the ability displayed but because of the firm spirit of willing- ness and co-operation which prevailed in the ranks. The Road Show offered at the Junior and Senior Party was a great dis- play of brilliancy and talent. Jerry Pratt surprised everyone when he decided he Wanted a Wife. " The number of respondents proved his popularity. And there was Austin Ware who proved an ideal lover — until Dad appeared. Many other enjoyable acts were presented and the whole was followed by re- freshments and dancing. [35] GATEWAY lin ANNUAL SopK opnomore lass CL Kenneth Baker President Ruth Parker Sgl.-al-Arms Mildred Parks Vice President Alfred Kastman Secretary Alice Crocker Treasurer Wedell Wilson Sgt.-at-Arms ON November 18th, 1921, in Jacob ' s Hall, the Sophomores gave a hard- time gathering. Ruth Parker, in charge of decorations, with the aid of her committee, had hung old clothes of every description around the balcony, and a huge festoon of old shoes hung from the center of the room. After playing old time games and running a Suit Case Race, those present were ably entertained by Mr. Robel and the Davis Brothers. Kenneth Baker and Arthur Burnham presented a dialogue of only too brief duration. Rheuvilla Blair and Kenneth Baker had arranged a most lucious surprise in the way of refreshments. There were toothpicks, gum, prunes, apple cider and doughnuts. A speech by Dr. Vartanian proved the feature of the eve- ning, and the Grand March, participated in by all, was extremely unusual. Prizes were awarded the most " Tacky Bums. " [36] HE St. Patrick ' s Day party was given by the Freshmen on March 1 7th ][ at Jacob ' s Hall for the entertainment of the entire school. The program began a little late due to work in getting the apparatus together. At about eight-thirty the orchestra opened with a merry strain. At nine o ' clock, after many attempts to hang the little silver sheet on the roller curtain, the movie machine began to click and darkness pervaded the place. With the aid of the orchestra, the audience enjoyed several good comedies from " the days of long ago " which nevertheless produced many a laugh. Many couples were con- siderably embarrassed when Konecky unexpectedly switched on the lights. The talented Burnham presented a very mirthful sketch displaying his vocal as well as histrionic ability. Cortes Kelly, the dramatic impersonator of the " High Diver " Adolph, gave Mr. Burnham able assistance. Thereupon followed a most mystifying and baffling performance by the renowned prestidigitator, Henri Sarpristi. It was only with the utmost reas- surance that the great man was able to overcome the fears of the audience and induce several spectators to assist him. At the termination of this number refreshments were served. It was said of the cake that it was a superb example of the baker ' s art. Then the orchestra broke into sole stirring strains and the floor was soon crowded with gracefully moving figures. This continued until the approach of another day. [37] FresKman Law Class UNDER the able guidance of our good president, Mr. Paul Jordan, the first year law class has since its organization in March been giving to its members the distinct advantages of such an association. Up to the time of the organizing of the class we knew each other only as classmates. Such an acquaintance sometimes is better than others but the true man does not show up until one gets out away from the restraint of class and the observation of the instructor. We have held numerous class meetings and have had one social affair at which we held a mock trial. Plans are being laid and negotiations being made with several national legal fraternities for the founding of a local chapter of a national fraternity for the University of Omaha. We leave school this spring with a feeling that our winter evenings have been well spent and with looking forward to the fall when we will again be together to pursue Blackstone and other legal authorities. H. F. [39] (41 1 WE are proud of our football team this year, and proud of our Coach and Captain. The season opened with real U of O spirit. The turnout was large and by October, Coach Adams had a winning machine developed. Last year ' s star, Wallace Banner, re- turned with plenty of determination to win, and made a whirlwind of a Captain. Mo Pressly again donned the Maroon uniform and was going strong when he was forced out of the game by injuries received in the Trinity scrape. Hugh Dowd, one of the best tackles the U of O has ever seen, was also hurt during this game. Gene Maxwell, ex- Central star, came down from Beloit College, Wisconsin, found his place at quarter-back, and gained many points with his passes. Com- bining these players with such men as Paul Konecky, Dewey Laws, and Ned Willmarth, all masters of football, we can truly say that this year was a success, even if Trinity did win her game. The " boys ' took Trinity down about ten notches in basketball and intend to do the same to her in football next year. [42] The initial game with Cotner was played at League Park and ended in a 7 to 0 victory for us. Due to her fast team, heavy line, and the injury of Pressly and Dowd, Trinity won by a count of 1 0 to 0 in a hard fought game. In the Midland game, neither side scored during the first half. But the " gang " came back and took it in the second, 6 to 3. Vore, Banner and Konecky starred. The Maroons played their best game at Tabor. Through the playing of Banner, Maxwell and Pettingill, Tabor was beaten, 49 to 0. The last game was played at Tarkio, Missouri. It was the hardest fought game of the year and against a heavier team. The wonderful work of Willmarth and the touchdowns of Banner and Maxwell won the game, Laws, Konecky and Golding also deserve comment. This was the first time that Tarkio had ever been beaten at home on Thanksgiving. The final score was 14 to 3. Thus, with only one defeat out of five games, our season has been a great success. The Maroons showed what real spirit could do. Everyone interested in the team feels that it was superior to any eleven in the state. Coach Ernie Adams was the biggest factor in the U of O ' s success and it was due to his superior coaching and everlasting patience that our season turned out the way it did. Every player did well. Banner, Willmarth, Konecky, Laws and Maxwell did stellar work all season. Chinquist, Pettingill, Wimmer, Kastman and Golding did excellent work and every member and sub deserves much credit. 143] GATEWAY ANNUALL CAPTAIN " SARPY " BANNER Wally was one of the best half-backs the U of O has ever seen. When he hit the line he couldn ' t be stopped. Wally made more points than any man on the team. HUGH " MAN O ' WAR " DOWD A tackle who lived up to his name. Dowd was hurt in the game and was out for the rest of the season. Our Next Year ' s Captain. Trinity MO PRESSLEY The boys from Trinity tried to break his neck but they couldn ' t. He has played on the team for three years, is the finest end in the stale. Open field running is his specialty. " DAPPER DAN " WILLMARTH A man wilh backbone and a fighter of rare ability. He was sensational half-back and displayed some real football. One of our punters. GATEWAY ANNUAL ROBERT " BOBBY " GOLDING Bob was ihere at end; it look an awful good man to sneak by him. A " bear " on catching passes and always a man in the thick of the fight. When he gels the ball — ask the boys. RAY " 400 " BLAKE A regular Maroon veteran. He has helped keep the stone wall impenetrable for the last two years. Ray always plays a clean game. He ' ll be back next year — watch him. " CHIN " CHINQUIST Chm was a new contributor to our football, but one of the reasons for our strong line. He played fine football and was generally found at the bottom of the pile. PHIL " MINUTE " TROCHENBURG When Phil hit the line it moved. Hitting him was like bumping mto a stone wall. He ' s big because his heart ' s that way. [461 IRVING " BUD " FOLEY Bud played full-back. When he got ihe ball he was good for five yards any lime. A hard player. We hope to have him with us next year. GENE " GALLOPING " EVERSON Gallopmg was a sub but must be given credit for his hard work. He never missed a practice and next year he ought to be a regular. [47] GATEWAY Pil9.

PAUL KONECKY " Kony " A new asset on this year ' s squad. One of the cleverest dribblers the U of O has ever seen. [49] niie Basketball Season IN the history of every university there appears a basketball team that surpasses all and is equalled by none. It is known as " THE TEAM. " Our basketball team for this year is such a team. It is the finest quintet the U of O has ever had and the work accomplished by it will long be remembered by you and me. What have we to account for this team. First, we have one of the finest coaches in the west. To him is due more credit than to any other one person. Second, ten of the best men in school made the team. They are all sports and play a clean and hard game. Ten games were played in which 275 points were piled up against the opponents 1 35. The State Basketball Championship would have been won, hands down, had we been in the conference. In the first contest, the Varsity beat the Alumnae 48 to 0. The season opened with a fast game with Dana College which ended 31 to 0, Maroons. Dana could not break our defense or match our basket shooting. In the second game, the " fighting Maroons " defeated the Buena Vista quintet in our gym, 44 to 22. Beside being wonders on defense, we bewildered the Iowa lads in working the ball down the floor and in passing. The third game, with Morningside, was a fast one. Our team completely swamped the Soo City lads. Accuracy and speed pulled over a victory of 2 1 to 12. The next game was played with Buena Vista on her own floor. The " gang " finally edged out with a score of 20 to 19. Two defeats satisfied Buena Vista as to our supremacy as basket tossers. A rare brand of never-to-be-forgotten basketball was played that night. The fifth game came with the so-called strong team of Western Union. The team got tired of shooting baskets and left the place with a score of 3 1 to 13. The last game of the successful trip was played at Trinity in Sioux City and sweet revenge was taken by beating her 1 8 to 10. The return game with Trinity gave another victory to the Maroons. The score was 30 to 1 9. Tabor succumbed at home in the final contest. Every man on the squad did excellent work all season. There were no individual stars because every man was a star. [51 ] [52] Helen Burton, Cpmnasium Instructor UNTIL the fall of 1921, physical culture for young women was seriously neglected at the University of Omaha. The chief interest had been cen- tered on athletics for the men. Realizing the necessity of an athletic depart- ment exclusively for women, the young women took the matter into their own hands and a Gym Club was organized. Plans were soon laid for a permanent success. Great enthusiasm was shown and nearly every girl in the gymnasium class became a member. An outline of activity contains floor work, light apparatus and its use, games, and folk dances. The spirit of good natured competition was brought in by the " Health Week Campaign. " The members were divided into two groups, the Orange and the Red. The Reds won the majority of the various athletic contests and were entertained at the Rialto and Candyland by the Oranges. As a result of a pyramid contest, the winning team had its picture in the " Gateway " and local papers. The event that put the Gym Club to the final test was Gala Day. This May Day Fete, given at Kountze Park on May 19th, was managed by the club. The program consisted in a processional to the park, a series of spring dances in costume, a solo dance and a recessional from the park to the school. To close the year, the club spent a week at Camp Brewster. A thoroughly good time with its attending good results was the reward. The Gym Club feels that in spite of many discouraging circumstances it has been a complete success this year. Its only slogan is " Watch Us Next Year.

B. [63] Histor}? of Lambda PKi Fraternitj) HERETOFORE social activities in the Law School of the Uni- versity of Omaha have been confined to annual banquets or strictly class events. In October of the year 1920-21 the Freshmen held their first class meeting and elected Wade Reeves, President, Robert P. Kimball, Vice President, and Emily Allen, the only co-ed member, Secretary and Treasurer. During the year a dance was given at Strehlow Hall, and a return dance given by the Faculty at Happy Hollow Club closed the year ' s activities. Having outgrown the green cap, the new Sophomores of 1921 -22 decided that a class organization was insufficient for their needs and that something permanent should be done. Doerr, Reeves, Muir and Vroman, acting as a committee, formulated the plans for this embryo fraternity and as a result the Lambda Phi — the first legal fraternity in the University of Omaha — was established. The fraternity is now a verile and going organization, and before the close of the year will be duly incorporated under the laws of the State of Nebraska. The Lambda Phi Fraternity will maintain and advance the science of jurisprudence, it stands for brotherhood and scholarship, and it aims to perpetuate the school spirit in the School of Law both by co- operation and example. It is apropos to say here that the School of Law owes much of its success to the untiring efforts of the faculty heads — Dr. D. E. Jenkins, our President who made possible the School of Law, District Judge Troup, our worthy Dean, and Secretary Thomsen, who bears duties too numerous to mention, and our loyal instructors who give their practical and scientific knowledge to the student body in order that the graduates may rank equally with those of larger universities. The Lambda Phis count themselves fortunate in having added to their support and roll the names of A. C. Troup, A. C. Thomsen, How- ard Saxton and W. M. Burton as both honorary and active members. Due to the full scholastic schedule the promised class in parlia- mentary law has been deferred until next semester. Thus far in the year, the membership numbers twenty-seven, all active and loyal Lambda Phis.

THE Student Council held its first official meeting when school opened in the fall and it was then decided to meet every week during the school year. Dr. Jenkins recognized the newly formed group of councilors at a banquet where he and Dr. James expressed their interest in the Council and their desire to co-operate at all times. The main work of the year was the effecting of changes in the Gateway publication, making it a weekly instead of a monthly paper, and separating the Annual staff. All the members of the Council worked earnestly and constantly throughout the year and gave careful consideration to all the projects suggested to them. The co-operation of the student body and faculty in every step of the year ' s work deserves the praise of the Council. A. D. [73] PIONEERS at the University of Omaha in the management of student publications through a student commission, the Gateway Board of PubUshers for 1921-1922, took office in October under new- ly established constitutions for the Weekly Gateway and the Gateway Annual. Kenneth Baker was chosen president of the board, and Robert Jenkins, secretary. The balance of the members were Grace Karges, Marion Fisher and W. G. MacLean, the latter the faculty member provided for in the constitutions. The work of the Board was carried on at monthly and special meetings at which time the editors and business managers were called upon for reports. The reports were accepted or rejected with recommendations according to whether or not they reflected the respective pubUcations to be upon sound footings editorially and financially. [74 1 [75] [76] TKe Weekly Gateway THE Weekly Gateway has prospered during the first year of its publication. Students have assisted the Staff in every possible way. Financially, the venture has been more of a success than the editors expected. The year has been an exceptionally pleasant one for the news writer. Each week during the basketball season a report of a victory occupied a column on the front page. A series of interesting Chapel speakers provided a great deal of material. Personal items about members of the student body were always available. The first issue of the Weekly Gateway, a four page four column sheet, appeared January I 3th. An exclusive interview with Robert Mantell, Shakespearian actor then playing in Omaha, was a feature of the maiden number. February 1 4th the Gateway was changed to five columns. Regular features of the Gateway were " The Safety Valve, " a column devoted to letters from readers; " Heara-Heartbeat, " a column for answers to questions of the lovelorn; " Gabby, " a part of the so- ciety page containing gossip; " Who ' s Who on the Team, " reports of the doings of the athletes; " Foolishment Not Meant, " Ken Baker ' s [77] column of humor; and " The Inspiring Reporter, " containing the answers of five students to some question. There were many changes on the staff. The original staff was : Richard Scholes .... Editor in Chief Clarence Edee Assistant Editor Helen Walton News Editor Lucile Latham Society Editor Kenneth Baker Sporting Editor Eno Grenawalt Reporter Marion Fisher Reporter Nelson Hartford Reporter G. H. Seig Reporter Marjorie Current Reporter Helen Vancura Reporter David Robel Reporter Herbert Edee Reporter Bonnie Jones .... Business Manager Ned Willi ams, Advertising Manager Ned Williams was replaced by Leonard Thiessen and G. H. Seig, Ed Ranft and Miriam Wesner took the places of Clarence Edee, Bon- nie Jones and Lucile Latham respectively. Olga Jorgensen became Alumnae Editor, and Vesta Beavers took over the subscriptions. Dur- ing the semester Cecil Simmons, Associate Editor; Madeline Scott, Reporter; Herbert Fisher, Reporter, and Ed Homola, Reporter. Copies of the Weekly Gateway were sent to many of the leading colleges of the country. In every way possible, at home and abroad, the staff preached the gospel of a bigger and better school. The constitution of the Weekly provides that a new editor take office May 1 . Carl Poppino claimed the office, the First Volume of the Weekly was completed, and the original staff retired. r, s. [78] Y. W. C. A THE Y. W. C. A. started the year by joining with the Y. M. C. A. in a Big Mixer. The purpose of this gathering was to get every- one in the school together and to start school spirit. A program was given and refreshments were served. The first general meeting for all the University girls was held early in the year. This Y. W. Tea was enjoyed by all the girls who were then given a chance to become acquainted with the work and to enlist their services also. Through the efforts of the Y. W. many interesting speakers were obtained for the Girls ' Chapels on Wednesdays.

THE Bacucy was organized three years ago to further the interest in Kindergarten and Primary work and to develop a real social relationship between its members. It is the largest girls club in the University excepting the Y. W. Each month during the past year it has held some social event at a member ' s home or at the school. It sponsored the much anticipated " Kid Party. " At this party even the gravest of the Seniors forgot their seriousness. The party was held at Jacob ' s Hall in the month of March. At first the boys were reluctant but when the piano played " Jolly is the Miller, " they were ready to help make a merry mixup. The evening ' s special feature was the dis- tribution of Valentines. Some very attractive kid costumes appeared, E. Stock being the best dressed boy and Thelma Wolf the youngest looking girl. Thelma ' s age was estimated at about six. The evening was spent in playing games such as Three Deep, Hearts, Cat and Mouse, London Bridge, and other kindergarten games. Ice cream, cake and lolly-pops were served at the close of the party. The organization of the Bacucy Party was as follows: Miss Fox Games Lillian Wallingford .... Decorations Irene Wall Refreshments Ellen Nordstrom Serving Helen Bertschy Programs Helen Neff Favors Florence Kennedy Publicity Ruth Arlander Courtesy [82] TKe Art Club THE Art Club, organized in April of 1921, is one of the booster clubs in the University. Its purpose is the advancement of in- terest in Art, and to provide for social activities in the department. An exhibit held at Christmas time displayed to advantage the excellent work of the various students. Japanese prints were sold, the remu- neration being used as a nucleus fund for the purchase of equipment for the studios. The Art Department of the Omaha Women ' s Club was enter- tained in March at a tea and exhibit. The east studio was very pret- tily decorated and the works of the hand-craft classes were displayed. In the west studio were exhibited the paintings. Classes in Outdoor Sketching have been held at Elmwood Park on Saturdays and a great deal of interest has been shown in this line of work. The Annual Exhibition was held during Commencement Week. Officers of the club are as follows : Laura Redgwick President Elmer Larson Treasurer Alice Crocker Secretary Ruth Parker Sergeant-at- Arms [83] ReA iew of Organizations NINETEEN TWENTY-TWO has been an excellent year for the organizations at Omaha University. It will be a surprise for everyone to learn that there are in our school close to twenty active, virile, boosting organizations of various descriptions, including in their rolls nearly everyone of our seven hundred students. It speaks very well for the school that it is able to support successfully in their work so many lines of intense endeavor ranging from strictly fraternal, through the craft clubs, to the purely serviceable bodies like the student council. It is a matter of great convenience to have a number of well organized bodies existing in a school as long as they hold no antag- onistic motives but are united by the single-heartedness of school spirit. Whereas the entire student body is too large and bunglesome to be handled in any ordinary way the school ' s organizations facilitate the distribution of a University message. Enlisting the support of the various organizations to a cause insures its success. The many organizations also make for variety, enabling each body to specialize in its own way and to add its bit to the sum total of the school ' s worth. In these powerful ways, organizations make themselves necessary and indispensible to the school. [84] 185] TKe Pla37ers ' Club THE Players ' Club has just completed one of its most successful years. This club was organized to create and further interest in the Department of Expression. Membership is not attained before proof of ability has been given before the rest of the club. Several new members were taken in during the year. Under the direction of Dean James, " When a Fellow Needs a Friend " was presented. Great success attended this production. The cast was as follows: Marie Pellegrin, Pearl Pearson, Lillian Baker, Edythe Mon- son, Marjorie Current, Leslie Van Nostrand, Kenneth Baker, Merrill Russell, Carl Poppino and Robert Jenkins. Waldron Golding was stage manager. Arrangements were supervised by Alta Davis and Rheuvilla Blair. This three act farce brought forth the audience ' s laughter and applause throughout. Officers for the year were: Rheuvilla Blair, Pres.; Edythe Monson, Sec ' y. [86] CENTRAL COMMITTEE Back RoTV — Leslie Van Noslrand, George Pallet, Waldron Golding Front Rorv — Flora Jones, Mildred Parks, Edilh Merriman, Helen Gwinn, Helen Burlon CHAIRMAN of the Central Committee. " Nice sounding title but his job is not a snap. Those who are familiar with Gala Day know that all complaints converge upon this one poor officer. Have you noticed that when Edith hears her name she strikes an attitude of " What is coming now? " All seriousness aside, no one could have handled the many com- plicated problems of Gala Day with as much tact and statesmanship as the young lady whose picture appears in the center of the picture above. She has shown herself to be a real organizer and has devel- oped a faculty for making other people work that is almost uncanny. The other members of the committee have been as faithful and hard working as could be expected. Helen Gwinn representing the august if diminutive Senior Class came to every meeting and really did nobly, considering all her other duties. Flora Jones was the [87] May Queen and Attendants Junior choice and a very wise choice it proved to be, for Flora certain- ly did her part in making the Gala Day of ' 22 the most successful in the history of the University. The Frosh chose as their representative the little Bliss girl, who always came to meetings with a mouth full of lunch and voting with an " Umm-huh. " Bob Golding as official stage carpenter surely did his duty with hammer and nails. Helen Burton, in charge of the dances and the Maypole, worked hard, as re- sults proved. As for the other " Guy " in the picture, he ' s the one who wrote this stuff. ' Nuff sed. These are the people who have been responsible for the success of Gala Day, and you can take the word of one who knows, the Com- mittee was not always sure of its ground. There were many obstacles, not the least of which was the belligerent attitude some members of student body took toward the members of the Committee and espe- cially toward the chair man. The committee wishes to take this oppor- tunity to thank the student body and faculty for the loyal assistance tendered the committee in its trying work.

Protzman. Work was begun at once and the men made their first appearance at the Florence Community Center. On the evening of December 15th, the club appeared in a joint Christmas program with the Girls Glee Club. Mr. George W. Campbell, a man known all over the country for his success as a director of music, relieved Mr. Protzman of his duties on January 1 5th. Among the engagements filled since that date are: Annual Father and Son Banquet — First Congregational Church Jan. 1 5 Municipal Concert — Municipal Auditorium Feb. 2 1 Men ' s Banquet — North Side Presbyterian Church March 6 Senior Mass Meeting — Central High School April 2 7 Beside these engagements, the club has sung at Chapel, and quar- tets have entertained at community centers over the city. The climax of the year was reached in the First Annual Spring Concert, May 9th. Any success which the Glee Club may have met in its first year ' s work is due entirely to the efforts of Mr. Protzman and Mr. Campbell. Not enough thanks can be given these men. The Glee Club is to remain a permanent organization, striving each year to better itself and to make its Annual Spring Concert an event heralded all over the city.

It was originally organized under the directorship of Mrs. Protzman who was later relieved by Dr. Krueger. The appearance of the Club in a Municipal Concert established a name for both the school and the girls. On December 1 4th, the Women ' s and Men ' s Glee Clubs appeared in a joint concert in Jacob ' s Hall. Group numbers were given by each of the clubs, and in the latter part of the program a cantata " The Christmas Dawn " by Spross, was rendered by a mixed chorus of twenty-six voices. Solo parts were taken by Misses Rigby, Sitts, and Current and by Messrs. Protzman and Bennett. Much of the success of the entertainment was due to the direction of Jean Buchta Protz- man and to the pianist, Miss Lillian Wirt. [93] Y. W. C. A. and Y. M. C. A. Mixer September 1 7 Y. W. C. A.

H. Vartanian OW, at the close of the school year, we can look back at the institution J J of Chapel and say that a definite work has been accomplished by it. Chapel has meant more to the students, the school and even the city, than ever before. Look at the appended list of engagements that have been ful- filled; notice the prominent names included in that list. It means that the Omaha University has reached out and made itself known through the most efficient members of the community, and how? By lugging them bodily into her Chapel exercises — the mountain came to Mohammet. And for the students. Chapel has ever been a source of instruction and enjoyment due to the kindness of educators, business men and entertainers in appearing to offer their bits. No chapel was allowed to close without some message having been put to the audience, some word that could be placed in the complex of everyday life to increase its worthwhileness, some thought that would make one aspire toward better things.

More than thirty mem- bers of the two major squads partook of the full seven courses head- lined by roast turkey and flanked by ice cream, cakes and demi tasse. Kenneth Baker, manager of Maroon athletic teams, further exer- cised his entreprenurial abilities as toastmaster for the evening. The speakers were President Daniel E. Jenkins, who emphasized the sup- plementary importance of athletics to the college curriculum; Dr. J. H. Vance, who brought out the physical development place of ath- letics; Coach Ernest Adams, who complimented the squads on their loyalty and fight, and W. G. MacLean, who presented the necessity of scholarship. Then the team captains were introduced, first those of 1921-1922, then those of 1922-1923, elected just before the banquet. Wallace Banner, retiring football leader, re-emphasized the fighting qualities of his team mates and thanked them for their loyalty; Stromberg, out- going basketball captain, added additional words of praise for his floor- mates. Hugh L. Dowd, newly chosen gridiron leader, then took the stand amid applause that promised full support in 1922. He outlined the aspirations of his team and urged continued loyalty on the part of the squad. Paul Davis, elected captain of the Maroon Quint, prom- ised even greater accomplishments for the team next year provided the veterans continued the fight of their past performances. The program ended with thanks to the co-ed organizations respon- sible for the banquet, and to Robert Sackett and David Robel, enter- tainers for the evening, and with an " O, O, O-M A " to start the new captains on their work for the coming year. I 97 I TKe Hare and Hound CKase Listen, my children, and you shall hear Of the midnight stroll of Brer Terrier. October twenty-fourth, at five o ' clock, A dozen hares met in Pratt Block, To lead the hounds to the Albright line, Th ence through a wood dotted with pine, Leaving on the scenery marks of chalk To show the hounds which way to walk. The hounds were led by the gallant Banner Who ch ose the trail in a most cautions manner. The night was dark, the air was chill As he gathered his " dogs " upon the hill. With a bound, he was in the hollow, Leaving at his heels the hounds to follow; On, on, ever down the railroad track Til it seemed they never could get back He led th em, through a mystic maze Until at length they saw the blaze Of a bonfire, large and bright. That seemed unto their weary souls a holy light. Their thoughts now turned to the promised repast. As they traveled down the track " exceeding fast. " And great was their joy to find That nothing had been left behind; Greedily upon that feast they fell, And for the " hot-dogs " sounded the knell. The hour grew late But still they ate. If they had been in a more thoughtful mood. Not so freely would they have partaken of thirst-making foo But they were not wise. And soon for water there were sighs, Until at length one brave buddy Lay down on a bank and drank the " Big Muddy. " And now, on their homeward way. They lived again the pleasures of the day, Singing a song rivaling that of the lark. They awakened the tramps sleeping in Mandan Park. All were at home at the sound of the midnight gun; In this manner ended the day of fun. ZdenJfa A. Sedlaccif [98] I 99] Success Secrets " Whai is the s, " Push, " said ihe Bullon.
