E. Jenkins THE year now closing has brought its share of new problems and per- plexities; but it has also brought abundant reasons for renewed optim- ism in the contemplation of the steady and rapid growth of the Uni- versity. Owing to the transfer of a large group of " ex-service men " to various vocational schools, the total attendance for the year is slightly less than during last school year. Nevertheless, the attendance is thoroughly in- dicative of permanent and wholesome growth for the reason that it represents a more regular and homegeneous body of strictly college students. It is to that body of students who become regularly matriculated and who pursue courses with a view to graduation with a degree that we must look when we seek to estimate our stable progress. As appraised from this point of view, the attendance for the current year is a very distinct im- provement upon that of any previous year. This improvement is mainly due to the fact that the incoming Freshman class is much larger than that of any previous year. Not only was it larger in numbers, but it soon proved itself to be a most excellent class in its personnell, talent, and steady response to the ideals of the school. A fine spirit of enterprise and harmony has pervaded the student body during the year. Wholesome rivalry has had a place as between classes and various subsidiary social organizations, but it has been uniformly regulated by a disposition of fairness and goodwill. Special credit must be given to the Y. M. C. A. and the Y. W. C. A., not only for promoting their names and spiritual sentiments, which are so fundamental in a well-rounded personal development, but also for their effective influence in creating and sustaining that consciousness of common interests and that co-operation which is so vital to the general welfare of the institution. Unstinted praise is due the football and basketball teams for their magnificent pluck and perseverence in facing formidable hindrances and not- withstanding all, winning a number of enviable victories. Owing to the Pace Eleven ■ 1 splendid co-operation of the coach, the student manager, and the team itself, with the faculty ' s committee, very distinct progress has been made in fixing our standards and ideals in relation to inter-collegiate sports. It may be con- fidently stated that the year ' s record has put athletics at a premium in the esteem of those to whom we must look for those facilities which are requisite in the actualization of our hopes and dreams in the sphere of inter-collegiate athletics. The place of athletics in student life is rightly conceived only when sports are subsidized to the development of manliness and brawn is cultivated as an accessory to brain. In contemplating the aims of athletics, Edward A. Guests ' s lines are after all, quite " apropos " — ' " This I would like to be — braver and finer. Just a bit wiser because I am older, Just a bit kinder to those I may meet. Just a bit manlier taking defeat. This I would like to be — just a bit fairer, More of a smiler and less of a whiner. " Even in the briefest retrospect of t he year ' s happenings mention must be made of Mrs. Joslyn ' s generous offer of thirty thousand dollars toward a new building. It should quicken hope and courage and should challenge us all to our best efforts in bringing the University to its cherished goal of service and efficiency.

Pace Eighteen THE Student Council is a body of students, some of whom are elected by the student body and some of whom are appointed by the faculty, for the purpose of assisting the faculty in the government of the student body and the school activities. The Council has been unusually active this past yeai " , having conducted the elections of the editor and business managers of the Weekly Gateway and the Annual Gateway, and the election of the Gala Day chairman. They filled the position of editor of the Weekly Gateway upon the resignation of Carl Poppino. This body promises to become a leading factor in the life of the student body as the school con- tinues to grow. Page Twenty-one Evelyn Walton, Secrelnry-Treasurer Leonard Stromberg, President Class of ' 23 THE Class of ' 23, we may truthfully say, has been one of the best 2;raduating classes that has ever been turned out of the University of Omaha. It has ex- celled in all lines of school activity. Two of its members have been captains of athletic teams. Many of its members have been assistants in various subjects taught at the University of Omaha. They have assisted in English, Rhetoric, Psych- ology, Mathematics, and Gymnasium. The programs and entertainments staged by this class have always been great successes. The U. of 0. is truly sorry to see these good students leave its ranks, but hope that they will always be boosters for their alma mater in the future as they have been in the past.

Now, after three years, in spite of the fact that our numbers have decreased, we are still keeping to the standard that we set in the beginning. This year the Junior class has been well represented in every project which the University has set forth to accomplish. The Hare and Hound Chase given early in the year, and sponsored by the Juniors and Seniors, was a marked success. The event which gave much credit to the class was the Junior Prom. This was the first authorized dance ever given at the Uni- versity, and those who attended are able to testify as to the school spirit and enthusiasm that was shown. As we approach our long-desired position of Seniors, we hope that, as graduates, we will be able to show that the U. of 0. is steadily growing both in numbers and high scholarship, which should make Omaha proud of its own university.

Jensen, Secretary Paul Konecky, Treasurer Class of ' 25 THE Class of ' 25, just finishing its second year in college, has made some real contributions to the school, and has furthered the activities of the U. of 0. as no other sophomore class has done. This class was the brains and executive that put across the second annual " sneak day, " and although the faculty " got wise " the affair was a grand success. The members of the class have " had a finger in the pie " in every school activity, and have been the pushers of everything at the U. of 0. Here ' s to the class of ' 25. Watch our dust. Pace Forty-two I y . Class of ' 26 THE Class of 1926 is differentiated from every previous freshman class in that it has been a little greener, and a little more foolish; as proved by an extremely wise expression worn by the male portion of it, and by a superabundance of giggle among its better half. It is also differentiated in its own estimation by the possession of a really gross amount of brains. This unusual brain power it evidenced inj several ways. Some of them have been in their various performances and projects, especially the " freshman chapel " at which they produced home talent rivaling all the great celebrities we have ever heard of, and probably some we have not. But the greatest testimony of their bril- liancy is that now they are no longer content to be freshmen, but have fully made up their aggregate minds to become a sophomore class as soon as an examination-giving, grade-affixing faculty will permit. — H. S. " Sneak Day " Page Forty-five Howard S. Anderson Ernest Adams Kenneth C. Baker Athletic Management ATHLETES who are attending the University of Omaha may grant that there are universities of larger enrollment and more extensive equipment, but none of them will concede to any university that it has a better coach than our own Ernie Adams. Ernie always stood as a persevering and conscientious exponent of clean athletics. He was ever willing to meet the players in both football and basket- ball more than half way, and the man who showed a willingness to work and learn received his chance regularly. The football season found the athletic manager of the preceding year, Kenneth C. Baker, again on the job. It was with much regret to all that the multiplicity of his other duties prevented him from managing the basketball team. At a meeting of the faculty athletic committee his successor was appointed in Howard S. Anderson, who at once took over the managerial reins and conducted matters in a manner pleas- ing and agreeable to all. A new note was struck in the athletic life of the University by the establishing of certain eligibility rules which will prevent a player from representing the Uni- versity in Athletics in the future except his scholastic standing is approved by the faculty. This is a big step toward standardized athletics, something hitherto unknown to the University of Omaha. Pace Fcrty-six ■ I Foot Ball Squad EDWIN WILMARTH The Captain!

Page Fifty 4 n 1 10 The Football Season Howard S. Anderson. IF anyone should say that the football season of 1922 was a failure, some- one should immediately rise to take issue with him. Two elements may determine the success of a team: First, the comparison of scores; and second, the comparison of spirit. In neither of these did the U. of 0 football team, captained so ably by Wilmarth, and trained so well by Coach Adams, fall short. With handicaps from about every possible source, the team pushed, bucked, and fought through the season in a manner that won the respect and admiration of every loyal U. of 0. student. Men were slow in reporting for practice, men were injured, equipment was slow in arriving, and games were cancelled, which was most disheartening after many days of hard practice. Against their tremendous difficulties nevertheless the team won their victories brilliantly and took their defeats fighting to the last with a tenacity of spirit that excited press comment in every city in which they played. Almost in- variably outweighed man for man, they piled up a total of 62 points to their opponents 61. In their game with Tarkio they made 17 first downs as com- pared to Tarkio ' s 3, and lost the game only by the unfortunate breaks. These men did not bruise themselves and batter each other day after day because of loyalty to one man or any group of men, nor did they do it out of any beast-like instinct — they did it for their U. of 0. Surely no one can doubt or question the loyalty or devotion of these men to the school after realizing their difficulties and then considering their accomplishments. They believe in the U. of 0. of today and better still in the U. of 0. of to- morrow. They see that by their sportsmanship they have represented the U. of 0. to the outside world as an institution where men and women of character and stability are training. Rightfully the U. of 0. is proud of these men. Record: Omaha Uni. Trinity Omaha Uni. Tabor 3 26 36 0 Omaha Uni. Western Union Omaha Uni. Parsons 23 0 0 23 Omaha Uni.

HERE again was manifesled llie magnificent spirit of our athletes and tlie wonderful genius of our coach in the formation of the team which represented the University of Omaha on the hardwood courts this last season. Starting with hut two of last year ' s men, Captain Davis and Paul Konecky, Coach Adams wrought from material composed of high school graduates and veterans of former years, an aggregation that worked together harmoniously and speedily. The season, taken collectively or game hy game, was a huge success. The scorehook shows nine victories and only three defeats. Of these three defeats, one was hy two points, and another by three, evidencing that, though beaten occasionally, our team was never outclassed. In dividing the two game series with Yankton the U. of 0. showed the caliber of its basketball team to be of a high nature. If we play them again another year we will win all the games. The records also show that against the total of 201 points amassed by our opponents our t eam collected an aggregate of 271 points, leaving us an apparent advantage of 70 points. However, this does not fittingly express how the U. of 0. team excelled others since they did not play as strong an offensive game as possible, being content to practice their five man defense, the while maintaining a comfort- able advantage. The entire team played good basketball all season. Captain Davis was handicapped by outside work but played in most of the games at forward. Ackerman and Leo Konecky filled the forward positions and Chesneau and Kastman alternated at center. Reeves and Paul Konecky ably took care of the guard positions. The spirit demonstrated by the team all season was very noteworthy and most commendable.

The First Annual Girls ' Basketball Tournament, originated by Coach Adams, was held under the auspices of the University of Omaha at the school gym. The girls, in spite of their inexperience, made a splendid showing in that. By their fine playing they advanced to the semi-finals before being eliminated. The tournament brought to the University much favorable comment and attention. The team also represented the University in the Midwestern Association of the A. A. U. Tourna- ment, and here, too, much to the surprise and gratification of iheir supporters, ad- vanced to the semi-finals before being conquered. Even then, their conqueror was the team which eventually won the tournament. Nothing is better for University girls than basketball, and nothing is better for the University than to have its girls playing basketball. We are positive that as a result of this year ' s experience girls ' basketball teams will play an important part in the future athletic life of the University of Omaha.

In the face of grave difficulties they have succeeded in their task. What happening was there that went unreported? What event or condition that called for editorial comment was there that was not treated in the editor ' s own inimitible style? All this has been accomplished under the burden of a last year ' s debt. Carl Poppino, editor during the first semester, produced an excellent sheet and paid off one hundred dollars of the debt. On his leaving the University, Helen Sear- son became editor, and got out the paper with unquestioned success. Al Kastman, business manager for the year, handled his department with the assurance of a professional. Through his efforts the debt was further reduced. To the reporters and department heads belong also a large share of glory for their persistence and perseverence in collecting news. This plucky little group, under the direction of two such able editors, published the Gateway to the satisfaction of all its readers. Los Sabios VIVA Los Sabios, una junta sin igual del mundo! Los Sabios, the first and only Spanish club in the University of Omaha, was founded during the first weeks of the year 1923. The members are students of Spanish, who wish to improve and widen their knowledge of Spain and Spanish speaking countries along literary and social lines. The work of the club goes hand in hand with the Spanish courses at the LJni- versity and it is making fluent conversationalists of its members. The meetings are held every two weeks, and they have been uniformly successful. Two banquets were held, one at the home of Miss Beth Barnes on April 27, where Ven Frando acted as chef, and the other at the home of Miss Eleanor Sevick on May 26. A picnic is planned for June 5, at Elmwood Park, with Agnes Undeland, Ruth Arlander, and Helen NelT as hostesses. The outlook is very bright for the club as the growth of Los Sabios has been rapid and its standing in the University is assured. The charter members are: Charles Craigmile, Keith Ware, Arvid Johnson, Jerome Kutak, Fletcher Slater, Luther Moore, Ven Frando, Eugene Jacobson, Herbert Fischer, Howard Anderson, Marjorie Crichton, Marietta Catania, Eleanor Sevick, Agnes Undeland, Ruth Arlander, Madeline Johnston, Marlowe Addy, Georgia Street, Clara Pease, Elizabeth Barnes, Cartherine Beal, Lucille Bliss, Jane McConnell, Helen eff. Pace Eighty La Causerie THE French Club, organized this year and christened " La Causerie, " deserves a place in the future of the school. Its founders, the members of the French VIII class, had an ideal which they determined to bring closer within their reach. They appreciated the value of a society which would foster a deeper interest in French literature, culture, art, and a sympathy with France, through the medium of the French language. To aid this it is the purpose of La Causerie to present to the French de- partment each year some texts, references, magazine subscription, volumes by stand- ard authors or any addition they consider valuable to the library. The meetings have been a source o f entei ' tainment and education. Each reunion has been enthusiastically attended. The value of La Causerie to its members has been conspicuously beneficial, as the progress in conversation made during the year has witnessed. Pace Eichty-one The German Club DER Deutscher Verein is composed of all those who are studying German. The membership is about eighteen. The club, however, is in no way exclusive or aristocratic. The youngest person to attend our meetings is the little daughter of our worthy president, Herr Elmer J. Larson. The purpose of the club is to increase interest in the German language, literature, and social life. Meetings of the club are held on the second Tuesday of every month, at the home of one of the members, all meetings being conducted in German. German folk songs are sung, directed by Herr Professor Kuhn and Herr Dr. Krueger. The meetings have always been full of life and enjoyment. The feature meeting was a German banquet. The menu consisted of Sauer Kraut, Spare Ribs, Wieners, Limburger Cheese, Crackers, Pretzels, and Near Beer. The Biological Society R ECOGNIZING the need of unity among the pre-niedie students, a meeting was called for the purpose of organizing a society to further the interests of this group and to aid in co-operation with the faculty to broaden and better the branches of study most essential to these students. A committee composed of Harold Dye, James Lewis and Gerald Hogan was chosen to frame the constitution. At the next meeting the constitution was read and accepted and the election of officers took place. Paul Madsen was elected president; Gerald Hogan, vice president; Rhoda Musgrave, secretary; and James Lewis, treasurer. There were several meeting s held, at which important subjects were discussed after talks along biological lines by special speakers. The club also took charge of the assembly at which Dr. McCIanahan spoke. The charter members are: R. D. Leavitt, Harry Konewitz, Rhoda Musgrave, Irvin Foley, John Phillips, Paul Madsen. Dr. Boyne, Harold Bell, Luther Moore, Michael Tedesco, Louis Growl, Harold Dye, James Lewis, and Gerald Hogan. Miss Winters is the faculty sponsor. Pace Eighty-three Y. W. C. A. THE first gathering of the most successful year of the Y. W. C. A. was a Mixer, in which both the Y. M. C. A. and the Y. W. C. A. participated for the purpose of having everyone get acquainted with his classmates for the coming year. A most impressive Recognition Service was held at one of our first weekly chapel meetings. The regular weekly chapels, held on Tuesdays, that followed were very profitable, and due to the interesting speakers obtained, the girls received much help both individually and socially. One of the greatest successes of the year was the Y. W. C. A. Carnival, which was given for the purpose of raising funds for the expenses of dele- gates to the Estes Park Conference this summer. A good time and much fun on the part of those present assured the Y. W. that the carnival will be made an annual aff ' air for the school calendar. Other social activities of the year have been the Christmas party, Y. W. tea, steak fry at Elmwood Park, and the banquet in honor of the senior girls. The Y. W. C. A. cabinet consists of the following members: Ruth Arlander - - - - President Elizabeth Westerfield - - - Helen Vancura - - Vice President Chairman World-Fellowship Com. Madeline Johnston - - Secrelary Edythe Monson Publicity and Posters Constance Perley ■ - - Treasurer Charlotte Funk - - Y. W. Room Marlowe Addy Lucile Bliss Programs Under-Graduate Representative Eleanor Madgett - Social Chairman Miss Winters Faculty Pace Eighty-five The Y. Boosters Club THIS club, formerly the Y. M. C. A., changed its name at the begin- ning of the year to the Y. Boosters and undertook an extensive cam- paign to boost the school and school activities. During the football and basketball seasons, the club was one of the most instrumental organizations in the school in arousing pep and enthusiasm. Before the Christmas holidays the club held a mixer in the library of Joslyn Hall. A good crowd of fellows were there to enjoy the program and to romp and frolic together. This did much to get the fellows of the school better acquainted. This spring the club did some real boosting. It was the Y Boosters that put across the track meet on Gala Day. They offered three prizes to the per- son that sold the most ads for the Gateway Annual. At their weekly meetings, held on Tuesday mornings during chapel hour, they brought to the school many prominent citizens of Omaha to ad- that it will become the leading organization of the school. This club is a new departure in the University activities, and it is hoped that it will become the leading organization of the school. The officers who have been the leaders of this lively outfit the past year are: Leonard Stromberg, president; Kenneth Baker, vice-president; Benja- min Mead, secretary and treasurer.

The Girls ' Athletic Association was organized at the beginning of the year. The officers elected were: Winifred Dempsey, president; Eleanor Madgett, vice president; Virginia Duffield, secretary, and Gladys Kemp, re- porter. This organization did much to promote the activities of the gym- nasium girls. The classes were divided into three divisions, play-ground work, dancing, and athletics. Folk and aesthetic dancing were included in the dancing, and through this division the Gala Day exercises were carried out, all the groups being headed by gym girls. The athletic division dis- played a great amount of initiative and pep. Athletics included basket- ball, swimming, hiking, and tennis. Swimming was directed by Thelma Fallen. This is the first year that girls ' athletics have been well organized. The most successful sandwich sale of the year was put on by the gym girls to boost athletics. The floor work of the gym classes was well directed by Mrs. Johnson. It consisted of work with Indian clubs, dumb-bells, march- ing formations, and other gymnasium exercises. The gymnasium girls of the U. of 0. have set a standard for future years. Page Ninety The Pups THE Delta Sigma Phi, national honorary journalistic fraternity, was organized at the University in 1918, under the direction of Mrs. H. D. Jolley. The aims of the fraternity are two-fold — to promote an interest in journalism together with furthering the social activities of the University. Membership is restricted to those in the journalism department. One of the unique features of the fraternity ' s social program are the original parties. The fraternity strives to make each affair entirely different and unusual. The Delta Sigs ' New Year party at Murphey ' s was one of the most successful affairs of the year. Numerous teas, theater parties and luncheons have been given throughoiit the year. Pace Ninety-one v Review of Organiztions THE year of 1922-23 has been a very profitable one for the organiza- tions of the University of Omaha. Three new language organizations have appeared on the campus, and two new sororities. All of these organizations have all the pep and enthusiasm, and possibly more, than the older organizations. There have been a number of short-lived organiza- tions that have sprung up for various special reasons, such as the " P. K. " Club, an organization of preachers ' kids. The old organizations have gained in strength and prestige during the past year. It may be a surprise to some of the students to know that there are thirty-five live, kicking, and enthusiastic organizations now in official existence in the U. of 0. To all these new organizations and all that may spring up in the future, diis Gateway Annual, on behalf of the student body and the faculty, wishes to extend the most hearty of welcomes, with the hope that they will continue to live and thrive during the years to come as they have during the short time since their existence.

Although a temporary setback was caused by the resignat ion of the director, Mr George C. Campbell, who left the city, the Glee Club has gone steadily forward. It has appeared before several audiences in school and outside of school, with many favorable comments. In place of the annual concert this year, the club decided to appear on the Gala Day program, and did so with credit to themselves and their officers.

The quality of those few has made the students wish that quantity were added. The year ' s work was preluded by an opera, " Love ' s Sacrifice, " by George V. C. Chadwick, which the Glee Club gave on June 2, 1922, shortly after last year ' s spring term closed. Fall of 1922, they sang in chapel during Omaha ' s music week. January 10, of this year, they appeared in a recital given by pupils of Mary Louise Wiley. Sub- stituting for the usual spring concert, they sang at the commencement exercises of the graduating classes. There have been a large number of under-classmen in the Glee Club this year, who will form the center of a good group for the year 1923-24. With this year ' s work as their basis, they are intending to make next year the most musically success- ful year that the University has had. Page Ninety-five y My Public School Music Class Kathleen Shaw Verda Bennett Ella Bolling Woodward Mary Gorton THESE girls are finishing the certificate course in puhlic school music, under the direction of Miss Johanna Anderson. This entitles them to go out into the state as supervisors of music, but, these girls plan to go on and finish the diploma course also. On May 12th, they featured on the radio program put on by the University of Omaha, from radio station WOAW. The men ' s and girls ' glee clubs also appeared on the program, as did several of the faculty of the University Conservatory of Music. Page Ninety-six 0 School Song U. of 0. we ' re here to boost you While our colors fly. Always true in all you do We ' ll hold your banners high. We will always stand behind you Backing up that line — FIGHT. 0-ma-ha we praise forever U. of 0. VERY fortunate indeed has been the University in the way of music this year. A real school song has been written, officially adopted and published. David C. Robel is the composer of both the words and music, and the whole school has been benefited thereby. It is a stirring, melodious march tune, easy to sing, and easy to remember. At every mass meeting or school assembly it has been of great value in boosting school spirit and instilling the spirit of victory into our teams. It will continue forever, we hope, to create, to unify, and to magnify school spirit as it has already done during its brief existence. Assembly DR. V. H. VARTANIAN Chairman, Assembly Committee THE close of the school year completes the biggest program ever put over by the Assembly Committee. The Assembly has been the centralizing force of all the University activities. Through it, college spirit, unanimity and " pep " were created. It is the only institution which brought together the student body and the faculty. Near the beginning of the school year the name was changed from Chapel to " Assembly " and a committee of Dr. Vartanian, chairman, Miss Winters and Dr. James was organized and a definite program was laid out. This consisted of ad- dresses by Omaha ' s most prominent bankers, lawyers, pastors, physicians, editors, and merchants, programs by the various organizations, devotional exercises, and musical programs by artists both inside and outside of the school. This constructive program has meant a great deal to the student. Both attend- ance and interest has increased greatly. While last year the attendance was about fifty to sixty, this year it averaged about eighty to ninety. ASSEMBLY SPEAKERS AND PROGRAMS Dr. S. McClenighan, Specialist on Children Rev.

Tis hard to think a job too difficult for a woman, but from the results we believe no one could have made a better success of Gala Day than did David Robel. We all knew from the beginning that Dave would work long and hard, but we discovered also that he could make others work. Just ask Marlowe Addy, Don Head, Margaret Thompson, and Keith Ware, repre- sentatives of the Senior, Junior, Sophomore, and Freshman classes, i espectively. Marlowe almost forgot to talk she was so busy listening to instructions. Don was even willing to give up some of his much needed sleep in order to be present at every meet- ing. Margaret Thompson felt her responsibility so greatly that she refused to have any dates. Then as to the diminuative Freshman, Mr. Ware, all that can be said is that he knows how to be agreeable. Keith was always willing to run errands and bring refreshments to his fellow workmen. There are always those who knock others, but this year we heard little criticism. We all hope that the school may select as good a committee in the future. Gala Day was a success from beginning to end, thanks to the faithful work of this Central Committee. Pace One Hundred Gala Day THIS year, Gala Day was truly a gala, festival day. No school at all rendered it a day of joy and happiness to everyone. The morning was taken up with the track meet, an account of which appears else- where. In the afternoon the tennis tournament championship matches were played At 6:30, among the beautiful flowering bushes, and trees just decked out in their leafy coats of green, the " Pageant of the Seasons, " di- rected by Mrs. Johnson and Miss Adelaide Fogg, was staged by the gym girls, assisted by a few boys as pumpkins and butterflies. The pageant was exceptionally beautiful with all the flowers and fairies, as was the Maypole dance which followed. With an unusual grace, her majesty. Miss Flora Jones, Queen of May of the tenth annual Gala Day, heralded by Helen Vancura, and accompanied by her attendants, Marie Pellegrin, Lucile Bliss, and Estelle Kinney, ascended her throne amidst her admiring subjects, where she was crowned. Then followed the annual vaudeville entertainment, consisting of twelve splendid acts as well as an orchestra directed by Bud Oleson. " The Ivory Melodists " — Bud Oleson and David Robel — came first on the program in a series of classical and popular selections. Then the Pi Omega Pi girls presented " Can You Beat It? " in which they cleverly re- vealed the futures of all the school ' s celebrities. The Sigma Chi Omicron sorority presented a dainty act called " Crinoline Days, " in which the light- ing eff " ects, the lovely costumes, and the soft music combined to make it the prettiest act of the evening. Then came Professor Henri Sapriste, alias Herbert Fischer, with some of his magical tricks and slight-of-hand perform- ances. " A Soft Black Overcoat with a Velvet Collar " is the name of the comedy which the Freshmen sponsored. Grace Hall and Gladys Kemp were the pretty, distracted wives, and Ronald Yoder and James Doty their respec- Pace One Hundked Five 3 Uir XfXUU tive husbands. Next came Peg Falconer and Ken Baker in " Married Life. " They cracked jokes, danced, and sang, and made themselves generally amus- ing. The Theta Phi Delta fraternity gave a unique act called " Hot Stuff, " depicting life in Hades. Barton Ford, dancing and singing, was next on the program. The act following was presented by the Kappa Psi Delta, assisted by Ronald Hadley and Art Burnham. Dancing, silk-clad Kappa girls com- posed the chorus. Then came a rip-roaring comedy called " The Man from Brandon, " presented by the Alpha Sigma Lambda and assisted by Betty Sowell and Grace Hall. " On the Sidewalk, " the front which followed, con- sisted of some clever dialogue between Art Burnham and Ed. Rypins. A unique and pretty act, with its Pierot and Pierrette, was " The Maker of Dreams, " presented by Phi Delta Psi. The University Glee Club, with all its customary charm, ended the program. Thus ended the most wonderful Gala Day in the history of the Uni- versity of Omaha — one that will never be forgotten. ! fji -V ... .... .u Gala Day Track Meet k NOTHER addition has been made to the list of Gala Day activities in the form of an inter-class meet which will be included in the future Y programs for Gala Day. The track meet this year was held in the morning at 10 o ' clock on the Seminary grounds. Coach Ernie Adams, Dean W. Gilbert James, and Fletcher Slater and Geo. C. Pardee of the Y. Boosters Club promoted and managed the meet. We must mention the democratic spirit of the meet and announce that the fair maidens of the school participated in a 75-yard dash, first place gohig to Virginia Duffield, second place to Grace Maurer, and third place to Winifred Dempsey. The girls are proudly displaying their ribbons along with the male winners of the events. The Freshmen cinched the meet by piling up 38 points. The Sopho- mores came second with 28 points. The Juniors were third with 10 points. The Seniors, contrary to their dignity, only received 5 points. Dana Ackerman was individual point winner of the meet with 16y2 points, Fletcher Slater came second with 14 points, and Paul Konecky third with 13 points. The events and the winners were: SO-yard Dash — Ackerman, first, F; Konecky, second, S; Madsen, third, J. Time: 5 2 5 seconds. 100-yard Dash — Konecky, first, S; Ackerman, second.

Pace One Hundred Nine The Players ' Club THE Players Club was organized to create and maintain in the Uni- • versity of Omaha an interest in drama, and to give practical training to the members by die study and presentation of plays. Much interest was shown in the try-outs held at the beginning of the year. The seven members from the year before, and Dr. James, were the judges. The new members taken in were as follows: Gladys Kemp, Mildred Mullaly, Elizabeth Sowell, Grace Hall, Marjorie Crichton, Thelnia Burke, James Doty, Merle Jones, George Pardee, and James Bowie. The officers for the year were: President, Lucile Bliss; secretary and treasurer, Marie Pellegrin. A new precedent was started in giving two productions a year instead of one. On December 18th, two one-act plays, " Whiskers " and " Locked In, " were presented. The club chose for its spring play " Nothing But the Truth, " given May 11th. This three-act comedy is based on the efforts of a young man to tell the absolute truth for twenty-four hours. The characters portrayed the twists and turns of the plot so cleverly that the audience thor- oughly appreciated the performance. " Truth is stranger than fiction. " Bob found this out when he was forced to admit to his sweetheart that he had once loved a circus girl. Money meant more to Mable and Sable than the truth, and therefore by painting white black they got Mr. Ralston into hot water. And when Ethel sang ' ' ' o .... The cast included: Lucile Bliss, Mildred Mullaly, Marjorie Crichton, Gladys Kemp, Thelma Burke, Merrill Russell, Kenneth Baker, Ray Norene, ' James Doty, and Irving Foley. Ray Norene and Irving Foley were taken into the club after having been assigned parts in the play. The stage manager was Clarence Hunter; property manager, Dave Chesneau; advertising man- ager, Luther Moore. Dr. James ' patience of Job plus that of seve ral of the patriarchs, was rewarded by the polished excellence of the cast. Pace One Hunubed Eleven Public Speaking Class IT might call forth a little wonder as to why the public speaking class should get any more notice than any other class, but this year ' s class has proved worthy of publicity. For the first time in the history of the school an oratorical and declamatory contest was held. The class was divided into orators and declamators. The subjects chosen by the orators were weighty ones, such as " Prohibition, " " Law and Enforcement, " and " Relations Be- tween China and America. " Preliminary contests were held, and in the latter part of May the final contest took place. First and second prizes were given to the winners in each group. From such an interesting department the University expects great things in the future. Page One Hundred Twelve Pace One Hundred Thirteen Law Department FACULTY DANIEL E. JENKINS, M. A., Ph. D., D. D.

The law department of the University is older than the school itself, having been organized in the early nineties as the Omaha School of Law, and having affiliated itself with the University of Omaha about five years ago. In all its years of existence the law school has never had a better faculty or had a stronger foothold than it now has. Although the student body of the department was somewhat decreased owing to the withdrawal of the federal vocational students, the body of regular students has made a substantial increase dais year, and promises to show an even better growth in numbers next year. One co-ed. Miss Frances Wiles, has survived the first year of the legal studies and hopes to become one of (Jmaha ' s few women lawyers. The persons who are taking the state bar examination this year are practically three-fourths U. of 0. products, and will no doubt make the ex- cellent showing that their predecessors have done in that test of their ability. The University law department is at present only a night school, but it is hoped that with the growth of the school and the facilities of the school that it will be possible to have a regular day law department with a full time faculty. The students and almuni of the law department are enthusiastic boosters of the school and some day may make possible the fond hopes and desires of the friends and faculty of the law department and University in the shape of substantial support to such an enterprise. Page One Hundred Fifteen Humor of The Law Lawyer McNeil and his client discuss the contingent fee. Client: " Well, I won ' t have to pay you anything now? " Mac: " No. " Client: " That ' s good. But, that we may make no mistake about it, what do you understand by a contingent fee? " McNeil (offhand and quickly) : " Oh, if we lose the case I get nothing (client has a satisfied smile), and if we win the case you get nothing. " The client goes out trying to determine in his own mind just where he gets any- thing. Friend (to (lawyer) : " How about that will case you have been contesting for the Simpsons, Mr. Zozaya? " " Jawn " : " Oh, 1 won it for them. " Friend: " Are you going away for the summer. " Lawyer Zozaya: " Yes, to Europe. I sail next week. " It is unnecessary to add that the heirs remained at home. " Have you anything to say before the court passes sentence upon you? " asked the judge of a prisoner who had retained Mr. Christensen as his lawyer. Prisoner: " Well, all I have to say is I hope your honor will consider the ex- treme youth of my lawyer and let me off easy. " Vrohman: Arriving in time to get the assignment for the next lesson. Kastman : Taking the only co-ed home. Sadowski: Acting foolish. Rosenblum: " May it please the court, yer honor. " Sturges: Chawin ' terbaker. Tapley: Bluffing. Leake: Writing petitions in regard to law books. Frances Wiles: Vamping the profs. Frost : Collecting frat dues. Council Bluffs Delegation: Holding up class until their arrival. Muir: Disagreeing with everybody and everything. Prof. Palmer: Amusing the class with his witty remarks. Judge Troup: Calling roll during the entire class. Prof. Burton: Making ' em dig.
