NONCIRCULATING 19 2 4 The Gateway Annual University of Omaha Volume XII, 1924 19 2 4 jForetoortr ■■ A S we grow older, we realize that there were things in the past which we would have with us always: happy faces, happy incidents, strong friendships, youthful successes. There were also things which seemed dark and unpleasant, tending to make us at times lose faith. If this booklet enables the reader to bring back these faces and events once so closely connected with the University; if it can in some way link these together to form asso- ciations of fun and woi ' k ; if it can bring back a smile, perhaps a tear, with that queer glow of warmth around the heart — if it can do that, the utmost hopes of this staff will be realized. 19 2 4 Table of Contents Foreword Page Two Dedication Page Five Annual Staff -- — - Page Seven 5 Administration Page Nine Graduates .-Page Nineteen Juniors Page Thirty-One Undergraduates —Page Thirty-Seven Law.. ........Page Forty-One Athletics Page Forty-Five Organizations Page Fifty-Five Assembly Page Seventy-Seven Dramatics Page Eighty-One J Gala Day Page Eighty-Five Greeks Page Ninety-Five Humor Page One Hundred Fifteen Memories Page One Hundred Thirty-One ?

Never before in the history of our University has there been a more enterprising, energetic and enthusiastic class of students, all of whom have been ardent supporters of the U. of 0. The Class of ' 24 has been active during the whole year, under the efficient leadership of the following officers: Preside nt, Ruth Arlander; Vice-Pres., Agnes Undeland; Sec.-Treas., David Robel. The class has been filled with remarkable talent and genius. With this marked character- istic, the seniors have put across all they have attempted, including special assemblies, senior day, skip day, etc. The class has contributed whole-hearted support to all student activ- ities and has supported all enterprises undertaken in the University. Al- though comparatively small in numbers, the seniors have filled the gap with quality, good spirit and continual boosting for the best interests! of the school. In taking their departure from the U. of O. the seniors express to all the student body and friends of the University their best wishes and a spirit of goodwill which they trust will last etenially. mV, ' PACE TWF.NTV Graduates RUTH ARL.4NDER, B.

The bunch can hardly wait until fall to start the last hard grind before the attain- ment of their much coveted sheepskins. In numbers we are somewhat dwindled buti not in spirit. We are the same lively bunch that wandered bewildered around the good old halls of Omaha University three short years. The annual hare-and-hound chase staged jointly by the Junior and Senior Classes came off according to tradition shortly, after the opening of school last fall. The Junior prom, although it nearly bankrupted the members of the class, was pulled off with great pomp and ceremony on the 26th of April and according to many it was the " best little party I ever went to. " The officers that have lead the class through the troublesome third year have been: Benjamin Mead, president; Elizabeth Pressly, vice-presi- dent and Herbert Fischer, secretary and treasurer.

Individu- ally, and as a group, the members have distinguished themselves. Athlet- ics, dramatics, debating, scholarship, singing and every other activity has claimed the Sophomores. It was a Sophomore who gained the univer- sity ' s only point at the state track meet; three were on the basketball team; the Sophomores were a close second in the inter-class meet; The Gateway Annual is edited by a Sophomore, while the Gateway Weekly was also, although by another sex. The members of the class have been leaders, as has; been seen in their first year ' s record, and by the fact that already many hold important positions for the coming year. There is no doubt but that the university will long feel the inspiring effect of the passing of the Class of ' 26. —J. F. K.

We had some members on the basketball team. Many of the track team were first year lads. The plays and musical programs that have been given couldn ' t have been nearly so good without the freshmen. In debate, we proved that no matter how young we are, we certainly can talk convincingly. Outside of school, we freshmen had a great deal of fun together. Early in the year we held a hike that some of us will never forget. Then there were our Leap Year party and our St. Patrick ' s Day party which were both very jolly affairs, due to the unfailing exuberance of the class. One thing is certain, if anyone came to school on " Sneak Day, " it wasn ' t a freshman. Upper classmen, if it has seemed at times that we yearlings were hopelessly irresponsible and given to frivolity, try to imagine us as we will be in the future — teachers, ministers, doctors and lawyers. And we ' ll probably be as disconcertingly staid and sensible as any professor who frowns on us now. — M. F.

YEAGER, Kent College of Law PAGE FOUTV-TWO - immmmmmimimmmmmmmmmmmmiim 192 4 The School of Law m I As yet the Law School of the University of Omaha is a night school. Its classes meet in sessions from 6:15 to 8:00 every night in the week ex- cept Saturday and Sunday. All classes in the Lav; School are held in con- venient downtown quarters, except one class a week, the latter meeting at the University Buildings. Its course is a four-year one. Such subjects as Logic, Argumentation and Public Speaking, the Psychology of Evidence, Brief Making and the Use of Law Books, are included, and compulsory. With preliminary qualifications of 32 High School credits and one year of college credits, the student becomes a candidate for a degree of Bachelor of Laws. A combination of text-book and cases is the method of; instixic- tion employed. The instructors are all well-known practicing attorneys of the Omaha Bar or Judges. The Night Law School will eventually be recognized as the equal educationally of any great American Law School. With a full faculty, obtainable from a choice of the entire Omaha Bar, thus securing a specialist for each subject, and a more mature student body, the practical advantages of the Night School over the day school are worthy of serious consideration.

Reeves was declared ineligible, and then re-instated near the end of the season. However, the team had a wonderful floor- leader in Slater, who has been honored with next year ' s captaincy for his noble effort and fighting spirit. The season opened with two hard fought games, which were lost by close margins to the strong Yankton team. Eligibility rules then robbed the team of Reeves, later reinstated, Clements and Konecky, a veteran. This left Adams with a set of green men, and his own personal deter- mination not to be doomed. He worked hard and his efforts showed re- sults. Although they did not win a majority of the games on the sched- ule, the men of the varsity team, spurred on by Ernie ' s spirit, and, the training with his " ponies, " emerged with the moral satisfaction of having been clean and hard fighters, and of having gained a wealth of experience to be used for a banner season next year. — C.

Football fell through, after a 7-7 tie game with the veteran Tabor team, because of the lack of material, but Adams continued to work, and turned out a mai-velous basketball team from green men. After the basketball season was over the men began training for track, and without entering dual competitions, Adams sent a team to the State meet where a great showing was made. The most signal feature of this year has been, the entrance of the University once more into the ranks of the State Conference. Through the untiring efforts of the University ' s faithful coach, and through his spirit of persistency, the State authorities were convinced that Omaha had once again reached the point where she deserved the association of the other Nebraska colleges. After the entrance again into the conference, Adams turned out a fine basketball team and made a wonderful showing against the more experienced teams in the state. Encouraged by this year ' s success, Ernie is working hard for a vic- torious year starting next fall. With such leaders as Bolzendahl in foot- ball, and Slater in basketball, and with the greater interest shown by the men in the school, there is no reason why Coach Adams cannot bo recom- pensed for his hard work in the past, by a year of championships in every line of sport — football, basketball and track. — C.

In the first place many of them started late. Then came trouble in get- ting recog-nition from a faculty committee already overharassed with fol- lowing the basket-shooting course of the school ' s lords of creation. There was trouble over time of practice, over practice itself, over everything under the sun and the roof of the gymasium. But to enthusiastic and amateur cagettes, trouble is the spice of teamlife. A dozen girls turned out regularly for practice and, under the snappy coaching of Mrs. Ring, spent long hours acquiring technique, bruised knees, exercise, and fun. For the more rocks in the road, the more determinedly the girls dis- played a cheerful unconcern over anything less than earthquakes or a personal interview with fate. In fact, every time fate did step in, they got quite a kick out of it, even semi-occasionally meeting the old gentle- man half way. An experience which they intend to cash in next year, solidifying a team that will hurl a direct challenge, as the basketball girls request the rest of the world to eat their dust. — H.

Adams worked hard to send a team to the State meet to rep- resent Omaha in her first year after being- readmitted to the conference. Slater, Margolin and Christy made the trip to the meet and Slater emerged the single point getter, placing fourth in the pole vault. Some hard work was done on track this season, and next year Adams hopes to have a fine team from the men who have been working out, to send to the State meet. On Gala Day the track meet for inter-class title was held and won by the freshman class. Good time was made in the events, consid ering the wet grounds, and a fight was made for individual honors between Slater, with 22 points, and Margolin, who lost by 1 point. Carson, Thompson, Reiss and Petrie made good showings for their classes, and many of the college inter-class records were broken. Results of inter-class meet: 100 yard dash — Margolin, P.; Thompson, F. ; Carson, F. ; 10:2. High jump — Margolin, F. ; Borcherding, S. ; Mead, J.; 5.6.

One of the many factors which have united to make this club an institution is its cabinet of officers: President, Fletcher Slater; vice- president, Helen Nef f ; secretary, Beth Barnes ; treasurer, Jane McConnell. Duke Slater ' s presiding at all the meetingr has ever been a source of en- tertainment though not of instruction, because of his apparent anguish at not being able to pour his thoughts into the mold of ;the prescribed lan- guage. However, let it be said in his favor that his ' popularity among his fellow members is attested, by the fact that he has served as President of Los Sabios ever since the organization was effected. Miss Zozaya must be placed in a foremost position among the factors contributing to the success of the club for it wa she who thought of hav- ing such, an organization for social and intellectual benefit and it was she who took the initial steps towards its inception. It has been said that a chain is no stronger than its weakest link and further that an organization is no more active than its laziest member. To that test we put Los Sabios gladly with no fear or trembling. — H. S. A.

The first meeting was held the second week of school and the enthusiasm evidenced at this first meeting was carried throughout the year. A Valentine party featured with GeiTTian Valentines was held at the home of Fraulein Rozella Swen- son on the 14th of February. Thei biggest event of the year was the an- nual banquet at the Bethany Presbyterian Church, of which Professor Kuhn is pastor. The boys were going to do the cooking but as usual it ended up with the girls doing most of it. We have a great outlook foi next year due to the large number of beginners in German who will be back next year. The officers the past year have been: Fraulein Margaret Creeling, president ; Fraulein Louise Rathsack, vice-president ; Herr Johannes Kuhn, treasurer and Herr Herbert Fischer, secretary. — H. W. F. PAGE FIFTY-NINE PACE SIXTY 19 2 4 Y. W. C. A. SOME Y. W. C. A. years start out with a bang. This was not one of them. The year started out quietly, and went on quietly accom- plishing- things, more things than usual in a year of more publicity. But the Y. W. had a quietly accomplishing person at the head of it, and some other real workers in the cabinet, all of whom started out on their Y. W. task of making their organization the most " universal " in the school, and succeeded in it. Among the first magnitude stars in the Y. W. crown of this year are the mixer, held in honor of theJ basketball boys at the end of thes eason, and the Y. W. lawn fete, the last number on their school program. Other phases of their work, their weekly assemblies and their general solid stand behind all school activities, kept their place on the campus high. Then, two Y. W. girls went to the Indianapolis convention to repre- sent the university ' s girls. And a larger number of them went to Uni- versity Place for the state convention. This summer two of those who attended the state convention are representing the school at Estes Park. The Y. W. this year has carried its lighted candles high, and placed them a httle fai-ther up on the mountain. Their last achievement is elect- ing for next year a president who will carry them still higher. The Y. W ' s work for this year is done, but the members have made so many plans for next year, and so many preparations, that it seems as though next year ' s work was well begun as this year finishes.

Sigma Omicron Society THE Home Ec Club, later to become the Sigma Omicron Club, was formed last fall, and has as its president, Cecile Perkins. Its pur- pose is to bind together the girls of the Home Economics Depart- ment and to uphold the Department ' s standard. During the spring the Club affiliated itself with National Home Economic Association. Numer- ous social activities were taken up and a special May party, honoring the faculty, given May 10th. The Club assisted in preparing the annual school dinners and especi- ally gave its assistance in putting on the Athletic Banquet. Two initiations were held during the year and the Club now has fif- teen members.

Officers were chosen and plans laid which made the club one of the most active and wide-awake organizations on the campus. The following officers were elected : Gerald Hogan, president ; Rhoda Musgrave, vice president; Harold Stine, secretary, and Mildred Dunham, treasurer. The election of officers was. followed by a Hallowe ' en party, which materially reduced peace in the neighborhood, all the available supply of cider, doughnuts and pumpkin pie — in the order named. Other meetings were held at the homes of Gerald Hogan, Lois Niles, Ida Lustgai-ten and Rhoda Musgrave. Initiation of fifteen new members took place at the last meeting of the year which brought the membership up to 26. Pins were secured and every preparation made to make this club a pemianent organization and it is to be hoped that it will be reorganized next year and enjoy even greater success that it has in the past year. PAGE SIXTY-THREE PACE SIXTY-FOUR 19 2 4 " Y " Boosters OF ALL the org-anizations of the University, this one can rightfully be classed as the most democratic, and the one most instrumental in promoting a feeling of friendship among the men, as well as boosting all of the activities of the school. Under its auspices many prom- inent speakers have come to speak in chapel. It also co-operated; with the Chapel committee in bringing other worthy speakers here. Hikes and parties have been held for the men, while a big " blow-out " , a campus bon- fire, eats, etc., was promoted in conjunction with the Y. W. C. A. The officers in charge of the " Boosters " for the past year have been excep- tionally capable. Kenneth Baker, the president, now graduating, is well known on the campus as a whole-hearted booster. Mead, Bolzend ahl, Mun- son, all have been persistent and tireless workers. Much credit is also due to Dr. Vartanian for his time and effort spent in making the " Y " Booster year a successful one. One of the acts of the Boosters this year was to elect two men to represent the University at the annual Y. M. C. A. Rocky Mountain Conference at Estes Park. Slater and Neilan went, and will return, no doubt, with new inspiration to present to the school. An- other great event sponsored by the Boosters and the girls of the Y. W. C. A. was thte International Convention of Youth, held at Indianapolis, Ind. Joe Houston, the president-elect for the coming year, and Ken Baker went, to return with much knowledge and enthusiasm. It would be dif- ficult to relate the many instances of the influence of the Club in for- warding the best interests of the University, in its attempt to spread democracy and high ideals, as well as clean and wholesome fun. But those tho who have been reached in some way, appreciate its presence, and woirk toward its continued existence. Others, reached indirectly, will soon realize its importance as a potent factor in the development of the school. ■ a ■ ■ ■ a PAGE SIXTY-FIVE PAGE SIXTY-SIX 192 4 The Kindergarten Girls IN THE HANDS of these girls lies the first instruction some little tots will receive after they leave their mother ' s hands. The first lessons and the gradual change from play to work will be deftly and gently directed by these students who have learned the theory out of books and have had practical experience under expert directors. They have learned to do all the things the little children will do and have studied from the adult and child point of view, in order to be able to more wisely and practically teach the primary grades. The course of study includes a study of child psychology, which enables them to understand the child mind and to reach the sympathy and interests of children. The lectures and recitations deal with pedagogy as a science and the practice teaching in the public schools, under regular teachers and supervisors, gives them the practical experience so necessary to become efficient and capable. These girls made a special study of all the parts of kindergarten work, including music, games, handwork, story telling and projects. When these primary department students graduate all they lack as teachers is years of experience — and they have had more than a semester of that. I K PACK KIXTY-SEVEN 19 2 4 13 " T HE Mystic Thirteen " was the title appended to the young ' men and women who compose this group of boosters. They were elected at larg-e by the school body, to push the activities of the Univer- sity. The belief was held that if the thirteen most active members could be selected to cooperate and concentrate on some interest of the school, that certain activity would be carried through successfully. The results have been very gratifying- and have shown that systematic promotion was necessary to accomplishment. The " Thirteen " promoted successfully the " Gateway Annual; " the " Weekly Gateway " ; the Operetta by the Music Department; " Wedding- Bells " by the Player ' s Club; special speakers ati the Chapel, and other events that needed energ-etic publicity. The mem- bers hold their office for one year. PAGE SIXTY-NINE PACE SEVENTY 19 2 4 Pan Hellenic Council THE long-looked for and much hoped for ambition of many of the members of the sororities and frateraities of the school became a reality this year in the formation of the Pan Hellenic Council. Pro- fessor Cameron, chairman of the Pan Hellenic Committee of the Faculty and chairman of the joint committee of Faculty and students deserves a very great amount of credit for ' steering the group through the trouble- some times of organization and seeing that the council started off on the right foot. Many sessions were held late in the afternoons after the ma- jority of the students had left school and a young but strong council or- ganized for the purpose of promoting better harmony between the soror- ities) and fraternities is the result. The influence of t he council was first felt at the mid term semestei when rules and regulations for rushing and pledging were laid down by the preliminary committee and were lived up to by the fraternities and sororities by a " gentleman ' s agi ' eement. " A set of rules and regulations in regard to inishing, pledging, and in- itiating sew members have been adopted and will be put into force and effect in the fall semester. The members of the preliminary committee were: Roy E. Cameron, Nell Ward, Marlowe Addy, Mrs. L. F. Johnson and Dean James, ' faculty members and Eleanor Madgett, David C. Robel, Helen Searson, Ann Mc- Connell, Herbert Fischer, Gwendoline Cheek and Kenneth C. Baker, stu- dent members. The officers that have been elected for the coming year are : Herbert Fischer, president; Georgia Street, vice-president and Helen Searson, sec- retary and treasurer. — H. W. F.

The collection of high school debaters prompted the action. Business started with the first meeting. A constitution and by-laws were drawn up and plans made for an active year. Several parliamentary drills were held, and a team picked by competitive try-outs. Out of eight contestants, the following four were chosen: I. Changstrom, Roman Hrushka, J. F. Kutak and Joe Houston. The question debated was that " The United States should enter the World Court of International Justice. " The other members of the club are: Leo Fried, John Kuhn, Richard Blissard, Carl Stromberg, Walter Munson, John Horton and Edward Neilan.

THE STUDENT COUNCIL being ready for work and anxious for it found it presented in various and sundry forms. The Council con- ducted a propaganda campaign to obtain better order in both the classroom and assembly and its efforts were rewarded by a noticeable im- provement. The Council held the usual elections of the Annual Editor and Business Manager, the Central Committee Chairman, and the Gateway Editor; and in addition innovated the elections of the three classes return- ing next year, the Y Booster Club, and the Pan-Hellenic Council members. The election of the Annual Editor was held earlier than has been customary in past years in order to give the staff additional time for the performance of their arduous tasks. It was thought best to hold the elections of the class officers of the Y Booster officers in the spring so that there need be no delay in the Fall occasioned by the necessity of organizing but that the organizations would all be prepared to function at their highest efficiency. Verily, this Student Council has done a noble work and blessed are Its " horny hands of toil. " — H. S. A.

Another purpose has been to keep high ideals and enjoyment in the Club activities. It has established a custom of purchasing French books during the year, and then leaving them to the school library. Ann McConnell has been presi- dent for the past two years. She has done much toward bringing the students together and making the meetings pleasant and educational. The Club intends to carry-on with its activities during the coming summer, having already planned picnics and outings. With the possibility of in- creasing the membership during the summer, and with the certain in- crease again in the fall, the Club has a suggestion of a bright future. —J. F.

The demand for their work has been greater than Miss Anderson could supply even though she has used three members of the Junior class for this pui-pose. They have also had experience aSl substitutes, taking the places of regular teachers when the latter have been absent. This department sponsored a big concert given by Mr. Letovsky and Mr. Spillman last fall. They gave a full evening radio concert February 28, assisted by the Men ' s Glee Club and also a musical program in May featuring the operetta " The! Riddle of Isis, " besides singing at several smaller functions.

At the beginning of the school year about twenty men of the University turned out, most of them inexperienced, but all willing to work their hardest to give Omaha University the best glee club possible. The Glee Club was then fortunate enough to secure Hugh Wallace as director and it is largely through his efforts that the club has met with the success it has had. Several concerts have been given at various churches during the year and the club has appeared at W. 0. A. W. twice. Howard S.

It can reasonably be said that the average attendance this year has averaged somewhat above a hundred. Certainly this manifestation of interest in the daily assembly has its underlying causes. This is the one time and place where the entire student body may meet in common accord. Here community spirit and cheerful fellowship spring forth; all race, class, and fraternity distinctions are obliterated in the religious atmosphere, which is devoid of any sectarianism. The high calibered programs presented this year have been of sufficient variation to create suspense and interest. Also each program has been of the type suited to the college student — appealing to the best in him.- Indeed, assembly this year has meant social and; moral improvement in the student ' s lives which time alone will reflect in the life of our communities and nation. Due to the benefits received from the institution of chapel the stu- dents take the opportunity to express their appreciation to Dr. Vartanian, who has been largely instrumental in arranging for the year ' s splendid program. The following hst of speakers and artists speaks for itself: George Campbell. Dr. Walter Judd. Report of Convention. Mr. Holland, Advertising Manager of Orchard Wilhelm Company. Dr. Samuel Horton, England — League of Nations. Rev. Mr. Ernst, Lowe Avenue Presby- terian Church. Program by Music Department. Bell Telephone Company. Dr. Atack — Spirit of Christmas. Mr. J. M.

The committee, frantic as to what to do in order to hold the pageant and coronation ceremonies in spite of the rain, finally decided to hold this part of the festivities in the gym and by hard and fast work on the part of the stage crew the gym was converted in about a half hour ' s time from a theater to the ball room of the queen ' s castle with her throne upon the stage. At six o ' clock the people began to fill the balcony and the edges of the gym:; Fully three hundred people witnessed the pageant and the crowning. Music furnished by Ken Baker ' s Omahans kept the people in good spirits until the pageant was ready to begin. The tripping fairies, led by Carmen Longman as Puck, tripped lightly to and fro and then formed a pathway for the queen and her array as they ascended the throne. Many people stated that they thought that the pageant was even prettier than if it had been held in the park. At eight-thirty, after the gym had again been converted into an aud- itorium, the people again filled it and the curtain went up on the Eleventh Annual Gala Day Entertainment. The queen and her attendants were the first thing on the program. The results of the Gala Day contests were announced in a proclamation from the queen, read by Eleanor Mad- gett, herald, and Russell C. Mattson, president of the freshman class was presented with a banner and Fletcher Slater with a gold medal. Amid the tumult of a railroad station, milk cans and mail trucks, the Harmonious Phi Sig Phor opened the bill with a bunch of lively hannony. Russ Mattson and Homer Schleh in the Dark Mystery kept the audience in an uproar with their clever line of gags. A beautiful scene, In a Lotus Garden, was presented by the Sigma Chi Omichron Sorority. Rave Dobel and Ben Kaker, as the two noble nuts, surprised the audience with an act that was different. A pretty act of novelty dances was presented by four girls of the Kappa Psi Delta Sorority, under the direction of Ruth Betts. Herbert Fischer, as Henri Sapriste, fooled them again and also furnished some amusement with a demonstration of his first act as a magician. A piece of real drama was presented by the Theta Phi Delta Fraternity, the Idol ' s Eye. The Red and Black Lassies of the Phi Delta Psi Sorority made quite a hit. The seniors, so solemn and staid, took the audience ' s breath PAGE NINETY-ONE y 19 2 4 aaaaaQBaQaBflaasa soaaaaaaaaaaaBiua away when they discarded their solemn robes and presented a number entitled " Every Day is Dancing Day for Us.

" The entertainment closed with a play, " Betty ' s Butler, " pre- sented by the sophomore class, under the direction of James Doty. Such was the Eleventh Annual Gala Day. Everybody had a good time and everybody agreed that it was the best Gala Day ever held. May next year ' s Gala Day and those to come further raise the level of perfec- tion that was set this year.

We have endeavored, in this little work, to do this to the best of our ability. Let the Freshman peruse these pages with care, remembering that that which is most strenuously denied is most apt to be true. PHI SIGMA PHI Tliis is the oldest fraternity on the campus — they announced it to the world in their ad in the Gala Day program. They also said it was the best — we ' re glad somebody thinks so. Tht fraternity was founded goodness knows when by Slop Heel, Lo Rated and Knotso Good, and was first known as- the A. T. C. club, meaning, " All the Crocks. " You see when they were without competition they had no difficulty in securing all the crocks on the campus. When the Thetas started the name A. T. C. was felt to be no longer appropriate, and the brothers thought they ought to have a Greek name. They knew but two Greek letters, so they decided to make the Phi do double duty and called themselves Phi Sigma Phi, which stands for Phast Swinging Phusser, a type that some of the boys fondly imagine themselves to be. One of the principal officers in the fraternity is called the Shiek. (No connection with Louis Lee McKibben.) The fraternity pin is a confused jumble of three letters, and it is very hard to make out just what it is supposed to be. The same is true of the fraternity. They also have pledge pins,, which they pass out in carload lots at the beginning of every semester. Over half of the pledge pins find their way back to the frater- nity vault before two weeks have elapsed. The fraternity colors are purple and gold, gold in memory of the money that changes hands at the fortnightly poker meetings, and purple because it is a royal color — the symbol of the rqyfil flush that every member aspires to " hold some day. The crest of the fraternity bears a dragon sitting on its heels, because the brothers are always draggin ' heels to the fraternity dances. These last are invar- iably given in the slickest places — some- times they assess the members as much as three dollars apiece. The fraternity song is " Thank God for the Garden. " Their pin will get you into Krug Park or Roseland free any day. The Phi Sig grip is the same as the Sig Chi, and many of the members have inter-married, showing that they came to grips early in life. Among the well- known members of this collection of orig- inal types are: Harry Petrie, the best- dressed boy in school; Don Swigart (he goes with the editor) and Stuart Kelley, the champion endurance orator and hu- m.orist. Ken Baker is also one of the brothers, but most of them don ' t know it, he only comes to meetings when there is something extra to eat. By the way, they expect to have a house-building as- sociation, they expect to move into their house about the time the University fin- ishes its new building. THETA PHI DELTA If Ben Mead were here he could give you a better line on the Thetas than we can. We believe he has it all written down — how many Thetas made letters at Omaha for twenty years back, and how. many served on the Student Council and the Y. M. C. A. board, and how many made good fraternities like Sigma Phi Epsilon and Alpha Sigma Phi when they went away to other schools. It is said that the list takes almost two and one half minutes to read. If we are any PACE ONE HUNDRED TWENTY-EIGHT 19 2 4 Freshman ' s Guide judge of nationality, the only fraternity some of the Theta alumni could make would be Zeta Beta Tau. Well, anyway, they were founded as rivals to the Phi Sigs, and they have tried for years to do that successfully. Heaven knows that ought to be a low enough standard for anyone. In former years the war was characterized by spirited at- tacks on both sides, and much slinging of mud and whitewash (on the Gym), but now they are both so flat on their backs that it is just pitiful. The Thetas are great rushers. They rush everything, and spike anything they can except their punch. It is a brave sight to see Slater drive up in his Max- well limousine, with his domestic finish haircut, and haul off the flattened rushee to the smoker, where the cigars, a pecu- liar perquisite of the Theta order, are passed out lavishly, along with the real dope on the other fraternities. Soon the luckless wight comes out wearing a pur- ple and white ribbon, another pledge to dear old Theta Phi Delta. Some wear their pledge ribbons as long as two days, and of course, there are always a few that are sucked in permanently (you know what Barnum said). The Thetas ' pin is shaped like a pillow, quite appro- priate for such a sleepy organization. In the upper left hand corner appear a flat tire, in the middle a cipher crossed out, to show that they are rated less than nothing; in the lower right hand corner a pool triangle, just to show how devilish the boys can be at times. Every spring the Thetas give a dinner dance at Pret- tiest Mile at which Dr. Jenkins speaks. (I don ' t know, I didn ' t have my watch with me) . Perry always gets a date for this function. He usually starts a month ahead of time. There are as many heels in this frat- ernity as on a centipede. The most emin- ent member, in the estimation of every- one, is David C. Robel, the other senior. Although for many years a confirmed bachelor, he has at last fallen for the charms of a vivacious Kappa, because she is the best looking girl in school, or may- be she is the best looking girl because she goes with Dave — who knows ? Aside from David we have Eddie Thompson. Eddie is noted principally for his unhappy love affairs. He went Theta because his two brothers did, and he has regretted it ever since — audibly. It is hard to say much about the The- tas because there isn ' t much to say. One glance at them and you know. ALPHA SIGMA LAMBDA Here we have the real fraternity — the boys with ideals It was founded in a conscious spirit of sanctitude in Decem- ber, 1919, by three men who have been rushed by the other fi-ats and had found something lacking in their makeup (who wouldn ' t) . As an outward and visible sign of their inward and spiritual grace they bear on their pin the cross — and the fraternity itself seems to be a cross between the Luther League, the Scandinavian-Amer- ican Foundation and Phi Beta Kappa. In the upper right hand ' comer of their pin is a moon, to show that, despite their re- ligious tendencies, they sometimes have moonshine on their picnics. Opposite is a star, for numbered among the brothers is the star perennial long time magic per- former. The thing that looks like a bread knife is a broken sword, to signify that no throats will be cut here — anyone can get in. The four rubies at the top of the pin are to warn the brothers away from the red lights- It is our private opinion that they swiped their pin from the order of De Molay, but they are very similar organizations, anyway, although the Al- pha Sigs do bar Hebrews. Since the dis- solution of the Alp ha Sigma Lambda IBBSBBBaaslVI ■ ■■■■■■ ■ ■ ■ .s ■ PACE ONE HUNDRED TWENTY-N: IINE PACE ONF, HUNDRED THIRTY 19 2 4 Freshman ' s Guide fraternity at Central High School, the local Alpha Sigs breathe much easier as their namesakes at Central were not the right kind of boys at all, why some of them were even known to smoke cigar- ettes. We wonder what would have hap- pened if Arthur Douglas Pinkerton Burn- ham has succeeded in establishing a branch of that order at Uni, as he tried to do in the fall of 1922. The local bunch would probably have succumbed with shame and chagrin. The Alpha Sigs don ' t believe in danc- ing, but they were going to break a pre- cedent and give a Christmas house party, but th e fellow at whose home they were going to have it sent back his pin. They have all sorts of rosy plans for the fu- ture, they were going to build a house this year, but the man who was going to get the lumber at wholesale resigned from the fraternity. They have a jour- nal they call the lamp — we hope they al- ways keep it lit up — its the only thing about this bunch that ever will be. Their colors and red and black — red because they are all well read, and black because there is at least one black-jack shark among them. SIGMA CHI OMICRON This is an organization of nice, refined girls — they are all perfect ladies and they don ' t care who knows it. Jane McCon- nell also belongs, but the sisters are try- ing to live it down. They are the oldest sorority on the campus, and in fact one might say they are so old that they are fast becoming decrepit, accable, spurlos versenkt. Although they still think they are the East wind, between you and me they are already out of trumps in their own hand, and in a year or two will be about three down and one to go. How- ever, they expect some day to petition Kappa Alpha Theta and what could be more fitting — K. A. T. is their middle name. They were founded the year the rhu- barb froze by Carrie Nation, Hallie Tosis and L. Pinkham. Their pin is an arrow — showing that the girls would like to fly high. It has a very blunt point — most of the sisters are not so keen. On the shaft of the arrow are an X and an 0, the X standing as in algebra for an unknown quantity, the popular girls in the sorority; and the O for zero, their general rating around school. The four pearls on the pin represent the really good girls in this queer organization, and recall the scriptures — you know, " pearls cast among swine. " The sisters are very shy and retiring. We make an exception of the recruit from Harlan, la. Rumor has it that the proverbial rusty gate has nothing on her. They object strenuously to having men hang around their meetings. As far as we know they haven ' t been bothered much in that way, although it is said that Ken Baker does drop in for some- thing to eat now and then. That ' s prob- ably why they are so down on men in general. They gave a banquet this year, to make a precedent. It keeps the sisters pretty busy making precedents, unmak- ing presidents and getting rid of the pledges Sister MuUaly spikes without authority. They always have at least two sets of officers every year, you see the girls get along so well together and it is such a pleasure to be in office, they believe in passing it around. Some of them find ingenious ways of announcing their engagements — oh, they are a clever bunch, they admit it. During rush week they gave a progres- sive dinner. Its the only progressive thing they have done for a long time. They gave their spring dance out at the Country Club too, Eloise was just worn ■ v.v■ v,w v. w v■ v■iW v v■v■ v■ w w■ w PACE ONE HUNDRED THIRTY-ONE 19 2 4 Freshman ' s Guide out explaining how to get out there to the hoi polloi. Among the prominent members of the Sigma Chi Omicron sorority are: Marie Pellegrin, the near-May-queen (she used to go with Doc Jenkins ' son); Katherine Swift (what ' s in a name — you ' d be sur- prised); Margaret McMillan (yes, she is too engaged — lots of engaged girls act that way); and the Editor (its a shame to throw that up to her again — after all her troubles with printers and things). The girls have a fraternity song. They sang it at their spring party, and really looked quite good in the dimly lighted KAPPA PSI DELTA This bunch started under good auspices — they broke off from the Sig Chis and any girls that would do that would cer- tainly rate high in intelligence were it not for the fact that they had allowed themselves to be sucked in first of all. But we live and learn. Howevei ' , it look as though the Kappas, like the amoeba, are destined to reproduce by fission — we expect to see the Freshmen split off and found a new order most any time snow . It is a well known fact how well they get along togther. Sometimes they even meet together, but when they do they never sei " ve refreshments — the girls ' mothers have found it much too hard on the crocks (both animate and inanimate). When one smacks a sister ' s cranium with a coffee cup something is liable to break and unfortunately it is too often the cup. To look at a photo of the Kappa Fresh- men, and then to look at a picture of their alumni, is to be forcibly reminded of the ads run in beauty culture maga- zines — before and after taking. As the ugly duckling ' s mother said " What fine birds these eggs have turned out to be. " The Kappas are a living example of the truth of the old proverb that a sorority, like bad liquor, sometimes comes up. Girls, this is the bobbed-haired soror- ity, and it numbers among its members the two best looking girls in stehool, the perfect girl, and the best dressed girl. We wonder if Al won her title on that tuition dress. This is the bunch you want to get in if you crave a multitude of dates (thanks to Harry Epperson and the boys across the river). But, oh, they are awfully exclusive — you just can ' t get in unless you are engaged to somebody ' s brother or something. This spring " The Kappas pledged Geraldine Swannick, who was the only girl they rushed, " as we read in the newspapers. We wonder why. Their pin is an anchor. An anchor is something that swings on the front end of a ship. Given darkness and a little co- operation, most of the Kappas will swing on the front end of a ship, in the back seat of a car or anywhere else conveni- ent. Around the anchor is a rope, sym- bolic of the tie that binds the sisters. We notice on the new pins the rope looks a little frayed. Heaps of prominent people belogn to this bunch, including all the class officers for next year, if they come back. The sorority colors are rose and gray — rose for the future and gray for the past. PHI DELTA PSI This is a bunch of girls that wouldn ' t make anything else but as they felt they had the makings of sorority women in them they decided to make a sorority of their own. Behold the finished product. " Now watch us this year " as the presi- dent said in her speech in chapel. As far as we can see it is perfectly safe to do so — you won ' t be blinded by anything spectacular. Like all nouveaux riches they are the most pushng group of peo- ple on the campus. They make their PACE OINK HUNDRED THIRTY-TWO 19 2 4 Freshman ' s Guide pledges commit to memory the telephone numbers of all the fraternity houses in town as a part of the probation week rites. They believe that persistence and frankness win in the matter of getting dates — if they can ' t rate anyone at one house they call up the next, and usually before the evening is over some luckless wretch is lured out. They exhibit a marked penchant for matters politic, and usually swing the balance o: power in elections. That is about all they do swing — they couldn ' t swing a date unless they drugged him first. They have a funny looking pin, but no- body ever sees one because you never see any of the girls around school. They are always off in a comer plotting something dark or telling each other about their sweethearts who are away at college. Oh, yes, indeed, some of the girls have steady men, they admit it themselves. The most prominent sister is Cecil Per- kins, the girl from Misery Valley, the May queen and the ex-May queen. It must be marvellous to have a great big strong man come up and tell the faculty where to get off, all for your sake, Cecil. All the same we ' re glad Cecil won out, it was a fitting crown for her career. When Cecil first blew in from Missouri Valley she didn ' t know galoshes from overshoes. Hot spit — look at her now. She has quite out-Kappa ' d the Kappas. And don ' t forget Thelma Wood. Would she? Well, we don ' t know for sure, but it is our opinion she would. PI OMEGA PI How this bunch has the supreme nerve to call themselves a sorority quite flat- tens us out. Why they are not sorority types at all, in the generally accepted sense. There is scarcely a girl among them who is conceited, snobbish, argu- mentative or two-faced. How they ever run their " sorority " without these car- dinal virtues is beyond our ken (that is a figure of speech and has nothing to do with the well known Mr. Baker). But they seem to struggle along, all eight of them, and now and then some girl gets a date and there is general rejoicing. They are improving, too. Their allies, the Sig Chis seem to be teaching them a few tricks in the political game. Their pledge pins are horseshoes — to remind the girls how lucky they are they went Pi 0. When we think of what they could have gone we realize the fitness of this idea. Yes, the Pi O ' s are getting better; don ' t think they are not. " Day by day in every way " — you know the rest. Some day they may be as conceited as the Sig Chis, as congenial as the Kappas, and as up and coming as the Phi Belts. Give ' em time.

That school-girl complexion is carried around on many a man ' s coat collar. If curiosity killed a cat, we know many girls who have qualified as big game hunters. When a woman is in love she acts like a fool. When a man is in love he is not acting. Question — What is worse than to be old and broken? Answer — Young and broke. There are three classes of women — the intellectual, the beautiful and the major- ity. Leading up to kissing a girl the first time is a matter of tact, the first kiss is a matter of pact, the second a matter of act, and the rest a matter of fact. Once I heard a mother utter, Daughter, go and shut the shutter! Shutter ' s shut, the daughter uttered, I can ' t shut it any shutter. Fine feathers make fine feather beds.

POINTED QUESTIONS Do ships have eyes when they go to see, Does a jolly tar flow from a tree, Can a river ever loose its head, Are fishes crazy when they go insane, Can an old hen sing her lay. Can you bring relief to a window pane, Can you mend the break of day? What vegetable is a policeman ' s beat. Is a newspaper white when it ' s red, Are bakers broke when they ' re making dough. Is an undertaker ' s business dead. Would a wallpaper store make a good hotel On account of the borders there, Would you paint a rabbit on a bald man ' s head Just to give him a little hair? You must pay the policeman a silver coin For nickles weren ' t made for coppers, If a grass widow married a grass widower Would the children all be grasshoppers. If you ate a square meal would the corners hurt, Can you dig with the ace of spades. Would you throw a rope to a drowning lemon Just to give a lemon aid?
