PROPHECY OF CLASS OF 1925 DUE to the fact that the Class of 1925 of this University of Omaha is the most iUustrious graduating class to which the university has even given her blessing, any attempt to part the veil of the future and reveal the trend of events that will overtake this class must needs fall tragically short of reality. We cannot trace in detail the brilliant futui ' e before these graduates of ours, nor span with our poor understandings the vast changes which their efforts will produce in the world. We can only sketch briefly, and note, in perusal of the class roll, that the larger portion of our class destines itself for the profession of teaching. At least, the world of the future is to be educated, with Irene Carlson, Helen Riekes, Martha Thornton, Sonora Canada , Lily Johnson, Flora Jorgensen, Caroline Guerney, Florence Jensen and Betty Pressley, all pouring knowledge into future generations of little pitchers. Benjamin Mead also intends a similar profession, except that, instead of mere knowl- edge he will pour chemicals. Pi ' ofessor Mead of the chemistry department will also be noted for his blushes, and a strangely reminiscent leniency towards pupils who eat candy in class. Howard Anderson is going to be a preacher. Ben Mead says he is. But, in spite of this brotherly assertion, Howard is undecided, as he has been informed that no good preacher would address one of his congrega- tion as " you dizzy bat " , and as that is the only term of endearment Howard has found effective in moments of stress. Herbert Fischer, the big man of the class, is going to be a lawyer. In face he is already far gone along that line, so far that we would almost trust our divorce problems in his hands. A career of art opens before Anita Edmiston and Elizabeth Wester- field, as Anita ' s future is to be played across the footlights in New York, and Elizabeth is slated by fate to sing over the new radio, to be invented in 1930, which broadcasts with ease all over the world so successfully that a crystal set can pick up the sound. Cecilia Starke is to take a trip around the world shortly after gradua- tion, on which trip she will meet a man whom she will start making happy for life. Frances Gordon has a similar car eer before her, except that the god of prophecy intimates that Frances will discover her life-work by means of a business letter written in her own personal handwriting, its style so arousing the curiosity of the life-work that he will come to Omaha to find out what she said. Result will be that he will never dare to risk another letter, but will decide to keep her by him for life. Nancy Catania and Mrs. Walter Halsey, although neither of them know it yet, are going into social settlement work and will spend some time in the same settlement. Helen Riekes will also forsake her general teach- ing for this more specialized foiTn of teaching. " Specialized teaching " will appeal also to other members of the teachers group, notably Betty Pressley and Florence Jensen, who will be among the first to forsake the profession for a narrower field and a private class not to exceed five. Sonora Canada, also, will not teach long. His name is Ray, and he lives in Oklahoma. As a whole, the class will make its mark in the world, a mark to be only outshone when the class of 1926 comes along after which there will be nothing left for the rest of the world to do except to sit in appreciative comfort and enjoy results. — H. S. ' 26. Ga6eu ay THE CLASS OF ' 25 WE have finished the course. We have worked hard, more or less. We have reached a point where it will no longer be necessary to bother our teachers. We have attained and passed that lofty pinnacle of seniorship. During- our four years ' sojourn within the walls of Omaha University many changes have taken place, many traditions have started, and the University has begun to take its place among the foremost colleges of the west. Among the things that we take credit for is the traditional " sneak day " . The Junior prom, the change of chapel from 11 o ' clock to 10, the transfer of Y. M. and Y. W. meetings to Tuesday, the Pan-Hellenic Council, the Purity League, the Preacher ' s Kids Club, the C. W. C, the Pi Omega Pi, the Phi Delta Psi, the Gamma Sigma Omicron, the Lambda Phi, and the Tau Delta Epsilon, Los Sabios, La Causerie, Der Deutsche Verein, the Unoma Debating Society, Professor Porter, Professor Wright, Professor Cameron, Dr. Schwartz, Professor SuUenger, the Mystic 13, and the Weekly Gateway are some of the things and persons we have seen come to the University. Our class has been instrumental in the fomiation of all of these organizations and traditions with the possible exception of the C. W. C. which we completely disavow. We feel that we are leaving a great heritage to the school. — — And commencement. What things that calls to one ' s mind! Who knows whether the members of the class will end up? Some may attain the highest heights possible, others not so high, but wherever the members of the class of ' 25 may go there will be the spirit of the Univer- sity of Omaha. [lij GoievOoy.

Though small in number, it is g-reat in spirit and loyalty. Its members are active in all branches of school activities. We have our last year ' s editor of the annual, the presi- dent of the Y. M. C. A., vice-president of the Y. M. C. A., members in the dramatic art club and incidentally, its president. Anything that the Juniors undertake to do is a success. We don ' t mean to flatter ourselves, but just try to forget the Junior Pi-om. Much of the success of our class is due to the leadership of our tall president, Fletcher Slater; our musical vice-president, Mabel Hargrove; our able treasurer, Hilma Peterson, and our good-natured secretary, Mary Uhl Collins. One more year to go for the coveted " sheep-skin " and then — Life. — L. M. R.

[44] THE SOPHOMORE CLASS THE SOPHS took part in and supported all school activities. The Sops had charge of " sneak day " . ' Nuff said! There was dancing- and food and even slick little snakes in the bargain. The Sophs put on a chapel that was so divinely aesthetic, and its uplifting influence was so keenly felt, that everyone cut classes the rest of the day to sit in deep reflection upon the subject: " What it was all about " In the Soph-Fresh Fight, who braved the perils of a larded pole to tear down the enemy ' s flag and put up their own? None other than the Sophs! Just as the knights of old mounted on their trusty steeds, braving the perils of glass hills to rescue their lady loves. Yea, bo! Spark Plug! The Sophs were prominent in athletics. Some of the best football and basketball turnouts were Sophs. And when results came in from an all- school contest, the Sophs were riding atop the head of the giraffe. The freshmen with their numbers, The Juniors with their rep. The Seniors with their dignity Cannot beat Soph ' more pep. We fooled the faculty again. At Bellevue on Sneak day. And Sophomore chapel gladly show ' d The " Uni Blue " away. Yet, little we care for the things we ' ve done, Or in which we ' ve had a part, TTiiless those deeds are graven deep. In the depth of Uni ' s. heart. — Ida Lustgarten. [46J THE FRESHMAN CLASS THE FRESHMAN CLASS this year has certainly made the other classes sit up and take notice by their interest shown in all phases of university life. Football, basketball, debate, glee club, and even the state track meet were all participated in by the members of the freshman class. Even " Sneak Day " claimed its full quota of freshmen, full of fun and ready for everything. Social life was far from neglected and at the several hikes and parties held during the year, the freshmen found plenty of pleasant amusement and entertainment. All this may seem of no consequence to the staid Juniors and Seniors, but some -day the Freshmen will become an honor to the school, and these same Juniors and Seniors will be proud to claim them. — D.

The quality of the paper has been vastly improved and many new ideas have been injected into it. The Kampus Kidder, alias Maurice McMasters, has enlivened many an issue with his sparkling wit. Much credit is due to Francis Wilson, the advertising manager, who kept the paper above water with her efforts. Geraldine Johnson, feature editor, furnished many columns of unusual and interesting reading matter. However, the whole staff has worked hard to turn out a better paper for a bigger and better school. Dale Lloyd, the editor-elect for next year, has the best wishes of the retiring staff. He is well qualified for the position, having served on the staff of his high school paper. In all probability a journalism depart- ment will be established at the University which will help greatly in better- ing the paper. Good luck to you, Dale! BOOK VI [57J SB ATHLETICS 1924-1925 WE ARE CALLED upon to write a little about the above gentlemen. It IS our sorrow to state that this will probably be Ernie ' s last year as the Coach at the Uni. Under his guidance the athletics at Omaha have been raised to a very enviable standard. Ernie has the knack of taking green material and developing it, in one season, into teams with pep, backbone and ability. If we are fortunate enough to have Ernie back with us next year, it will please us immensely, and if we can have him no longer, we will always remember him as a man who put his! best foot forward to make the athletics of our school as good or ' better than any in the Conference. Regarding Andy, let us say that, all in all, he managed the season ' s activities in a very creditable manner. However, we would have been very grateful for hot water after football practice, and a change in towels every month or so would have been hailed with joy. BASKETBALL ES, a " poor beginning makes a grand ending " . Look at the record for this season in basketball. Doesn ' t it make you smile? If you missed those last four games you should be hung by the neck until dead. Four straight wins to end a season. What a peach of start for the coming season. That will be a record to look back on, and an inspira- tion for the beginning of another. This year the coach had a number of letter men to count on, yet what happened. The competition was so stiff that only two, namely Slater and Anderson managed to make the first five. With Slater at guard and " Andy " at one forward, the coach placed Prather, a freshman, at center and Cowan, a sophmore, at forward. Schneider at running guai ' d com- pleted the lineup. This was the team that struggling against injuries and in eligibility at the beginning of the season overcame those handicaps and ended the season with a rush. Only two are lost at end of this year. Cowan goes to Nebraska Medical, and " Andy " to Chicago. But there is a wealth of material to fill their places. Nelson, S. Pinto, Hansen, Goodsell, Scurr and Pepper will be here and will make strong bids for the team. Of these Hansen seems to have the edge. The season is over and it ended successfully. And now we are looking forward to the next season and what it will bring. We ' re thinking mighty hard about a Conference Championship. On to ' 261 Captain Fletcher Slater was the defense. For a big man Duke was quick on his feet and proved himself a powerful match for the trickiest man on the opponents ' team. This was Duke ' s third year on the team. Next year will be his last. Howard Stone Anderson, veteran of many a contest. He knew the dope on all the other teams played. He proved himself valuable in more ways than one. Andy goes to Chicago. We are sorry to lose him but we wish him the best of luck. Tommy Cowan, a sophmore, playing his first year on the team and incidentally his last had a good eye for the basket. Tom always managed to garner a few points towards victory. Ben Prather, a powerful jumping center. Ben had a fine eye for the basket. His best shot was any place under it. His work was largely responsible for our fine showing. He is " Omaha ' s Fighin ' Fool " . Fred Schneider played running guard. He had a great eye for the basket. He was high score man for the season. When the coaches of the conference chose the conference teams Fred was chosen as guard. Ben Mead played at center sometimes and always made a good showing of himself. Ben should have entered the athletic world a couple of years ago. If he had, well, someone would have been out. THE BASKET BALL TEAM Clifford Hansen was " Duke ' s understudy. In the years to come Cliff should show his stuff. And judging by his performances this year he should go great..

And you should see him jump up and grab a pass out of the air. TOM COWAN— Forward Tom is one of the neatest little foriiards that ever played on the Omaha floor. BEN PRATHER— Center Prather can shoot from the court, and when it comes to hanging them up from under the basket, there isn ' t a man who can touch him. [61] GaieiOay l W AA vvv vvvV ' Basketba] FRED SCHNEIDER-FoRv Our All-State man. When the ball leaves his hands we are sure of two more points for Omaha. HOWARD ANDERSON— Forward Andy knows the game from A to Z, and we lose one of the headiest men on the squad through his graduation. THEODORE DRDLA— Forward Ted is light and fast, and may be counted on to do his share toward the winning of victories. 1621 Basketball CLIFFORD HANSON— Guard Cliff is new at the game, but he will make one of the strongest bids for a regular berth next season. BEN MEAD- FoKWAiiD Another one of our men to go by graduation. Ben was always ready to fight to the last ichistle for Omaha. GIRLS ' BASKETBALL THE GIRLS have finished the most successful season that is on record at the University. Under the sponsorship of Sonora Canada, and with Schneider showing them the finer points of the game, the girls developed into a whirlwind squad that was the terror of their opponents. The Metropolitan Girls team met their first defeat m three years at the hands of the Uni team. This was only one of the great vic- tories of the year. A girls team is usually regarded as a slow proposition at best, but our girls had the crowd on their feet time after time, cheering as wildly as though it were for the Varsity squad. Special mention must be made of the playing of Riddle, Prather and Searson. The whole crew worked together as one well oiled machine, bringing glory to themselves and to the University. 4 FOOTBALL THEY tell us that games of all kinds are won by points. If that is right, and we admit it seems logical, then we have the real reason for our not winning any football contests this past year. And yet, is that the real reason? According to all rules and regulations it is. Yet, the writer contends that there are grounds on which to take issue with these rules and regulations. We advance this topic then as the question for debate. " Was our football season on the whole a failure? " First, let us consider what Ernie had to build on or around in the formation of his team. He had not one letter man. The men were forced to go two miles to get to the practice field. He had but five or six men who knew the fundamentals of football. Out of the rest of the squad there were a number who had never touched a football before. And yet out of this conglomeration of nothing as it would seem, Emie molded and shaped a team of real scrappers, men who would not give up. How many of you would k eep playing on a team that did not score a single point all season? Ernie discovered in Krogh, a tackle that will set the Conference on the lookout, in the coming season. In Prather he found a brilliant all- around player. His real place is at end but he had to be used at quarter. Slater, a half, big and fast, was polished off in preparation for 1926. Then in Meek, and Capt. Bozendall, Emie had the formation of his line. The rest were green. Yes, green but with a great deal of promise. Fellow students, that is the story. Think it over. This is the true dope. Decide that question of success or failure in your own mind. A big round " goose-egg " is hard to swallow we know, but " every dog has its day " , and a " poor beginning makes a grand ending " . Captain Jack Bozendall has played his last game. A real man with the real football fight. Slater — A dangerous man at all times. That ' s " Duke " . Prather — A fast and heady player with a great future. Meek — The right . side of the line. Dunham — Playing his first year he gave a good account of himself. S. Pinto — A new man with the right spirit. Nelson — Never down and never out. Nobody else but " Fritz " . Blissard — A new man with the right idea of football fight. Krogh — An ideal football man. Big, fast and heady. Always playing the game. Mead — A smile with every tacke. He sure can smile. Elias — Small and fast, yet how he could lug the old ball around end. [66] TRACK LAST YEAR Omaha sent one man to the State Track Meet. This year Omaha is sending two. That is double the number sent last year, is it not? Then figure out how many men Omaha will send to the State Track Meet of 1955. This year Omaha had a better turnout in track than ever before. About twenty-five men reported to Coach Adams for tryouts. Out of these he selected two to go to the meet — Slater who vaults around the eleven foot mark and Prather who runs the hurdles and half mile. The rest will show their wares in the Gala Day meet. Slater, at the state track meet, took second place in the polevault, thus garnering 21 9 points for the old Uni. Ben Prather runs the hurdles in fast time. He is the holder of the 220-yard low hurdles in southwestern Iowa. Fletcher Slater is an all-around man in a field meet. Being a runner, jumper, vaulter and weight man, " Duke " is expected to do great things in the Gala Day meet. James Kinney is the miler of the crowd. James has not had much experience but should develop into a fine runner by next season. Eddie Thompson is a dash man with a fine future if he keeps up the good work. A former Nebraska University track captain said that Eddie was and could be a runner of note. Go to it, Eddie! Peercy and S. Pinto are the 440 men. They are showing great promise and with a little experience should be ready to produce points in the next meet. H. Pinto and Schneider both jumping around the 5V2-foot mark ai-e enjoying first year of track competition. Vanderlippe, a new man in the athletic world at Omaha Uni, is giving fine competition in the pole-vault. Schleh and Mead, weight men, are going to produce before their careers are over.

STURTEVANT University of Omaha [70] THE SCHOOL OF LAW 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 except Saturday and Sunday. All classes in the Law School are held in convenient downtown quarters, except one class a week, the latter meeting at the University buildings. Its course is a four-year one. Such subjects as Logis, Argumentation and Public Speaking, the Psycho- logy of Evidence, Brief Making and the Use of Law Books, are included, and compulsory. With preliminary qualifications of thirty-two High School credits and one year of college credits, the student becomes a can- didate for a degree of Bachelor of Laws. A combination of text-book and cases is the method of instruction 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. The University of Omaha now owns a building at 1307 Farnam street which is to be altered into a modern school building in time for the opening of school next year. The Law School will be pei-manently located there and a new Department, that of Trade and Finance, will be added to the school and will also be held in this building. The future of the Law School looks very bright indeed. The excellent law library which has been in storage in the basement of Joslyn Hall is to be moved to the new home of the law school. The Lambda Phi Legal fraternity has offered to bring the library down to date and to keep it so. The school has issued a number of exhaustive bulletins on various legal subjects which have been sent free of charge to all the lawyers in Nebraska. Mr. Thomsen, secretary of the school, has received some very favorable comments from the bar of Nebraska. Watch the Law School grow with growing Omaha Uni. [71J GaieiOay ORGANIZATIONS BOOK VIII [73] THE STUDENT COUNCIL THE STUDENT COUNCIL of the year 1924-25 has nobly perpetu- ated the standards and practices of former Student Councils. The Council has striven for and has, we believe, attained a state of rare co-operation between the Administration and the Student Body. Under the leadership of Howard S. Anderson as President and Dean W. Gilbert James as Faculty Advisor the organization again decided to hold the elections for the following year in the Spring and also instituted new reforms in the manner of conducting the Gala Day elections for May Queen and Her Majesty ' s Attendants. During the year its members did their utmost through pei ' sonal and public solicitation to intensify the spirit of loyalty to the University among all the students. Most notable among the achievements of the Council was the drawing up of a Point System for activities. This plan as drawn up was adopted by the Faculty at one of its sessions. The purpose of the system is to protect the student from being overloaded with activities and also to give every student a chance to participate in activities to the fullest extent of his ability. THE " Y " BOOSTER CLUB IT JS THROUGH the effort of this chib that the Christian hfe of the men at the Uni is largely sponsored. Under the capable leadership of its president, Joseph Houston, the club has had a most successful year. Various entertainments were offered, and many of the best avail- able speakers were secured. At various times during- the year individual members were in charge of the weekly meetings, and truly able men were found in this manner. At other times the men, in conjunction with the Y. W. of the school, sponsored joint Chapel services in the Gymnasium. At the last meeting of the year a new set of officers were elected, and under the guidance of these new men, we look forward to a year even more successful that the one just finished. Y. W. C. A. THIS YEAR marked the beginning- of a new era in the Y. W. C. A., an era in which every girl and group of gii ' ls in the university- took an active interest in the " Y " . For this reason, there was a representative on the cabinet from each sorority, and different sororities also were occasionally asked to provide programs for the various Tuesday meetings. The year ' s membership totaled 150. The Y. W. has been remarkably successful in a social way this year, remarkable not so much for the number of its social events, but more for the splendid success of all of them. In the fall the girls cooperated with the Y. M. in staging a peppy and well attended mixer; again this spring they helped to sponsor the annual basketball party. A delightful musical tea at the home of Mrs. D. E. Jenkins was the principal spring event. Over 150 girls attended it. The last event of the year is the Mother and Daughter luncheon scheduled for the first week in June at the Fontenelle; Hilma Peterson has been chosen as next year ' s president ; Eva Erixon, vice-president; Ruth Betts, secretary; Margaret Fischer, treasurer, and Mrs. Vartanian, sponsor. This year ' s officers have been Mable Hargrove, president; Hilma Peterson, vice-president; Helen Searson, secretary; Helene Magaret, and Mrs. Vartanian, sponsor. The cabinet consisted of Beth Barnes, Eva Erixon, Ann McConnell, Mary Fischer, Florence Jones and Mildred Whitaker. L76J DEBATE OMAHA UNIVERSITY is now completely represented in all fields of inter-collegiate competition, having closed a successful debate season with Cotner College, Midland College, Wesleyan Univer- sity and Tarkio College. Our affirmative team — Joe Houston fCapt.), Roman Hrushka and Morgan Myers — staunchly defended the proposition that " Congress should be given the power to repass by a two-third vote in each house, such of its own acts as have been declared to be unconstitutional by the Supreme Court. " The negative team — Windham Bonham (Capt.), Perry Borcherd- ing and Carrol Corliss — was as certain in its objection that such a proposi- tion was unwise. With our 3-0 victory over Tarkio in the last debate of this year, we have a good start for next year ' s success in forensics. Before signing off the debaters wish to express their gratitude to their faithful coach and friend, Mr. F. J. Paluka, who is largely responsible for their debate season. - 77] T THE PUBLIC SCHOOL MUSIC DEPARTMENT HE PUBLIC SCHOOL MUSIC DEPARTMENT is growing in strength. Five girls are graduating this June and six are left to carry on the department ' s work. Three years ago the Public School Music Department was formed with only four girls under the direction of Miss Johanna Anderson. Miss Ander- son held this place for two years. The first semester of this year Mrs. Kyde ably headed this group and worked very hard placing the Senior girls in the best schools in the city for their practice teaching. Mrs. More took over the work in January. She has been a fine teacher to both the Junior and Senior girls. 1781 NATIONAL ORDER GOLDEN FLEECE OMAHA UNIVERSITY BRANCH PEGGY KOSTAL President CLAIRE POWERS Vice-President RUTH HARRIET RICHMOND Secretary-Treasurer Marlowe Addy Angeline Tauchen Betty Johnson Olga Peterson Margaret Carmichael Elizabeth Westerfield Dorothy Flitton Mary Claire Collins Meryle Smith Eva Marie Ericson Elirra Gathman LOS SABIOS LOS SABIOS — " the wise ones " — held a number of very interesting meetings during the year. For some unknown reason, however, interest lagged, and the club decided at the March meeting to disband at least until fall. It is to be regretted that such an action was necessary but it is hoped that we will have the Spanish Sabios with us again in the fall — resurrected and instilled with new vigor and life. Vivan los Sabios! The club deeply regi-ets the loss of one of its most active members, Raul Ramos, who died in April, following a critical operation. In Raul we had a real friend and a ceaseless laborer for the success of Los Sabios. The officers during the year have been : Ruth Fraser, president ; Clara Pease, vice-president; Mary Fischer, secretary; Kenneth Gates, treasurer, and Helene Magaret, librarian. L841 LA CAUSERIE THE FRENCH CLUB this year has been extremely active although one excellent meeting was held this spring at the home of Dr. and Mrs. Vartanian. The club was slow in getting started due to the fact that Alice Bartos, the president-elect, did not return to school in the fall. The other officers for the year have been Florence Jensen, vice-president; Herbert Fischer, treasurer. This coming year the French Club ought to have a great year with the larger number of students that are now taking French, and the enthu- siasm evidenced at the meeting held. [85J DER DEUTSCHE VEREIN A HALLOWE ' EN PARTY, a sauerkraut supper, a skating party, a hike, a bunco party, and numerous regular meetings — such has been the menu of the German Club during this last year — the most successful of its three-year career. In the early fall the club staged a German funfest at the gym and although the attendance wasn ' t what it should have been a hilarious time was the result for all those who came and the German Club treasury was enriched by some five dollars. A German play, " The Guests " , was presented by the club at assembly during May, under the direction of James Doty. The officers of the club this past year have been Herbert Fischer, president; Harvey Pinto, vice-president; Cletus Heinisch, treasurer. Hilma Peterson, secretary, and Sherman Pinto, sergeant-at-anns. The committee in charge of the carnival included Beth Barnes, chair- man; Elizabeth Kuhn, Hilma Peterson, Cletus Heinisch, Margaret Seidle, Margaret Jetter and Sherman Pinto. The social committee this year was : Cecilia Schultz, chairman ; Lucille Carson, Florence Jones, Mable Hargrove and Ed Sterner, Mary Wetencamp and Margaret Werner have helped the various hosts with the refreshments. Hoch, hoch, hoch! Dreimal hoch! for the German Club. Long may it live. STUDENT ASSEMBLY AIM The Assembly occupies a prominent place in the life of the University of Oma- ha. In claim and in spirit it is devotional, moral and social. It aims to create a whole- some religious atmosphere on broad non- sectarian lines; to bring the students to- gether and become a center of University activities; to develop personal quality, character and the spirit of service; to maintain a high standard of student social life through its exercises and social events. METHOD AND ACTIVITIES To realize and fulfill this aim the assembly holds daily exercises to which all the students are invited. These brief, informal exercises consist mainly of music, responsive reading, prayer and special ATT A XT ti Ar A T rp A A XT alks by iuterestlug and leading speakers. VAHAN H. VARTANIAN q - activities are broader including: Announcements concerning the classes as organizations, societies, or the student body as a whole. Important student elections, for which it has become the recognized meeting place. Student talent programs given by individual classes, organizations, or the student body for the development of ability, initiative, power, and self-expression. Pep meetings held to arouse interest and enthusiasm for all athletic, dramatic and forensic activities. In view of its aim to develop character, taste, judgment, a sense of social obligation and a spirit of service, and of its intention to create a group of students who will be both a source of influence and an important and valuable asset in academic life, the administration wishes to make the attendance to these exercises a strong tradition and expects the stu- dents to be present. Under the effective direction of Dr. Vartanian, and through the co- operation of the students, it has truly become an all-student assembly. Its growth has been largely within the last few years and its success is due to the effort and work of Dr. Vartanian and the ready response of the students. The average attendance of each succeeding year has been larger than the preceding one. This year especially greater interest was evidenced due to the election of Student Representatives. One of the achievements of this organization is the opportunity which it gives the students to hear such men as: [87] ff A PARTIAL LIST 1. Mr. W. C. Fraser — President of the Omaha Bar Association. 2. Dr. Hart Jenks — Pastor of the First Presbyterian Church. 3. Freshmen Class Assembly — Student Talent. 4. Professor R. M.

[88] IBiAMA BOOK IX ;ili[iii[! iiii M iri![ iiii:rriTj| c ' |f ' ( IIIITWirT ' ii ' n i N iii ' T THE DRAMATIC CLUB THE BIG AIM of this organization is to stimulate and promulgate interest in the American drama. The members of the club are trying to analize and appreciate the art of portral of emotions, to get beneath the surface and try to understand what it is that makes the drama an interesting and ever changing subject. With these things in view the club has had a very interesting and progressive year. The events, in theii ' chronilogical order, show this progress. During the third week of school, a meeting was called and officers were elected. Doty was elected president, Sowell vice-president and Fraser secretary and treasurer. A meeting was called shortly after the election and a party given at Jim Doty ' s house. The club discussed both pro and con as to the value of pins. However, nothing was definitely decided, and the club remains without pins. At tryouts this year, for entrance into the club, it was found that the club was progressing. There were about thirty-five entries and the club could take but four girls and six boys. The new mem- bers are: Wilson, Reuben, Margaret, Kyde, Mattson, Epperson, Krogh, Houston, Cowan and Slater. Russ Mattson had to leave to go to California, but perchance he will be seen on the screen soon. The club met after the holidays and chose the play, " The Prince Chap " . Mrs. Harrington was made coach and then work began. From good source, the writer would like to make a statement regard- ing the play — " It was a success. " The ultra-perfect work of Miss Sowell in her portrayal of Mrs. Aarington makes her a charter member. Miss Wilson as little Claudia was indeed a work of art. Congratulations, Miss Wilson, you have proven your ability. By the way. Miss Wilson was chosen the best looking girl in the school. Miss Magaret lived little Phoebe Puker ' s part and gave it real life on the stage. And Houston, or should I say Runion, from all i-eports you were the best character and ' gave the audience more subtle humor than anybody. Doty did fine work as the Prince Chap. The supporting cast, Slater, Hansen, Krogh and Goodsell, deserve full credit. Had it not been for their willingness and cooperation the play would have been a failure. To say anything regarding Mead would be utterly foolish. Ben is already the idol of the school. He played the part of an English earl so well that there is nothing to say. We are all sorry Ben is a senior — good luck to you and may all your life ' s asso- ciates like you as the members of the club do. The writer wants credit to go to Miss Whitaker, Mr. Howard and Mr. Andei ' on for their wok behind scenes during the play. The dramatic Club has disbanded for this year but next year it is going to put on two plays. The Gateway editor for next year wants the club to put on a good comedy before Christmas, the pi ' oceeds to go to the Gateway. Then there will be the regular spring play. [91] S C H (.EH BOOK X [94] THE CENTRAL COMMITTEE Gala Day 1925 IT WAS DUE to the hard work and careful planning of the Central Committee that the entire Gala Festival worked out as smoothly and well organized as it did. The members put both time and effort at the disposal of the University, that the Show might be the success that it was. To be a member of the committee brought no singular glory to those concerned, but the memory of the splendid program and the lawn fete will ever be remembered by all those who saw them. And for this reason, all the committee members can be proud that this greatest of all May Days was the result of their hard work. [95] GALA DAY PERRY A. BORCHERDING The morning dawned bright and beauti- ful on the twelfth annual Gala Day. The warmth of the spring sun contrasted sharply with the cold, drizzly weather of last year. The morning was spent in feats of prowess, jumping, running, javelin- throwing, discus-throwing and the like. The finals of the tennis tournament and final preparations for the big show occu- pied the afternoon. At six-thirty in Kountze Park the trumpets sounded and the most beautiful pageant ever held commenced. Her Maj- esty, the Queen of May, Clara Pease, her- alded by Florence Jensen, and accompanied by her royal attendants, Ann McConnell, Mildred Whitaker and Melba Burke, passed beneath the floral arch and took her place upon the golden dias, amid the acclamations of her subjects. Evelyn Ho- taling, the crown bearer, held the crown, and the maid of honor, Ann Mc- Connell, placed it upon the queen ' s head. The host of girls who took pa rt in the pageant then revelled before her majesty in song and dance. The bubble dancers, the playtime children, the birds, the parasol dancers, the scarf dancers, the Maypole dances, and Ruth Betts in a solo dance formed the progi ' am. The queen and her cortege again passed beneath the arch to the royal automobile which carried them to the place of revelry. The curtain rose on the queen and her attendants in resplendant glory. Florence Jensen, the herald, read off the results of the Gala Day contests and presented the ribbons and awards. The royal party descended to box seats reserved for them to view the scenes prepared for them by the student body. The bill opened with a " Scintillating Drama " , canied out in pantomime by the senior class, where the villain and the hero assaulted each other with salt shakers. The Sigma Chi Omicron presented " Wooden Shoes " , a clever little bit of song and dance taken from Holland. Then came those versatile stars, Prather and Slater, in a Benduke dialogue. They acted so dumb that it was funny. The famous speech on specialization delivered by Duke ' s voice and Ben ' s hands will never be forgotten. The Pi Omega Pi painted before the audience living pictures, the last of which came to life and presented the Queen with a beautiful bouquet of roses. The Phi Sigma Phi took us on an imaginary trip to a bar room in Alaska, in " Shoot- ing of Dan McGrew " , recited by Stuart Kelly and pantomimed by the other members of the fraternity. Mac and Gus in their fraternity costumes [96] 2MeJQ25 entertained the audience with some rural songs. The Alpha Siga Lambda after preparing everyone for a terrible tragedy, portrayed the death of Julius Caesar as it wasn ' t. The Kappa Psi Delta presented their pretty dances in a dance act that was unusually delightful. James Doty and Max Cohen with their apache dance broke into prominence as one number in this act. Eddie Thompson and Paul Baker, supported by Harry Epper- son and Walter Edmiston, portrayed a number of scenes that never happen. The Junior Class brought the exceptional show to a glorious conclusion with a delightful comedy of domestic hfe, " Thursday Evening " , directed by James Doty. Much credit is due to the extremely efficient chairman, Perry Borcher- ding, who kept things running smoothly and ironed out many seemingly unsurmountable difficulties. He was assisted by the Central Committee, composed of four real workers, one from each of the four classes. Herbert Fischer, who had charge of the tickets and the publicity; Ann McConnell, who had the coronation ceremonies under her care; Gertrude Jones, who did the decorating in the main building and the gym, and William Howard, who bossed the stage crew and who was responsible for the smoothness of the entertainment. Mildred Whitaker, an unmatched property manager, Gordon Anderson and James Kenney, electricians, also deserve much praise for their big part in the carrying through of the program of the enter- tainment. The applause of the spectators amply rewarded the actors and the girls taking part in the pageant. The twelfth annual Gala Day is over. The curtain has descended upon some who appear for the last time on the Omaha Uni stage, on others who will contribute to the success of the thirteenth. May the best of luck follow the work of those who will make it even better than the twelfth.

To some it may seem that the Council has been doing but little other than the holding of meetings. However, the Council has been exceedingly active, and has regulated the rushing, pledging, and initiating of the members of the men ' s and women ' s fraternities in a most satisfactory manner. The council has brought about a feeling of good fellowship between the fraternities that has never existed heretofore. The members of the council for the past year were: Herbert W. Fischer, president and delegate from Alpha Sigma Lambda ; Georgia Street, vice-president and delegate from Kappa Psi Delta; Helen Searson, secre- tary-treasurer and delegate from Pi Omega Pi; Matha Thornton, delegate from Phi Delta Psi; Walter Munson, delegate from Phi Sigma Phi, Hazel Babcock, delegate from Sigma Chi Omichron, and Howard S. Anderson, delegate from Theta Phi Delta. The faculty members were: Dean W. Gilbert James, Roy E. Cameron, Nell Ward, Mrs. L. F. Johnson, and Marlowe Addy. The new delegates took office on April 1st, and elected officers for the coming year. Kenneth Gates is president ; Harold Stine, vice-president, and Elizabeth Sowell, secretary-treasurer.

[129] FELIX-THE COLLEGE BOY Felix O ' Funnybone was an In- mate of Omaha Uni. This Scroobie slopped his Orangeade through a Black Cigarette Holder. That ' s the Kind of a Rah Rah Boy he was. He pumped all his Jack from his Grandfather, a dried up Herring, past 78, who was playing Tag with Saint Peter. The Old Insect had roped in 12 Million Boffoes peddling Chocolate covered Tape Worms to reduce Fat Folks. Now, like the rest of the Habei- dashery Hounds, Felix took a Post Graduate Course at the Follies and flopped like a Pancake for some Dizzy Drapery. But here ' s what gummed up the Cards. The old Gent was Heck on Chorus Girls. He wanted Felix to hitch up with something that smelt of the Cornfields. Then he ' d hand over the Bank Roll. Say, a Blimp don ' t snooze away four years in a high priced Asylum for nothing. Felix used his Nut for something besides Hea daches. He doped it out to marry a Coun- try Jane, grab the Boodle, divorce the Hick and marry the Follies Quilp! Some sweet figuration! So he toddled out to the Sticks, grabbed off a Flop with a Sun Bon- net and a Gingham Dress and trot- ted her over to the Old Mint. " Grandpa, " he chirped, " this is Miss Arabella Whiffletree of Left- over, Kansas, a simple country girl, my future Wife. " The old Grave-Cheater piked her with his squeky Peepers and cackled. " Felix, me bye, " he yapped, " shure I ' m glad yer showin ' some sense. I wuz afraid ye ' d fall for some Chorus ninny. She looks like a sweet, innocent gal. I ' m goin ' t ' send ye to Europe for your Honeymoon. You go down and get the Tickets and I ' ll go down and buy her the Ring. " The old Skadinker slipped Felix a Ton of Banknotes and the Col- lege Lad ran out as happy as Heck. He was going to get Quotations from Divorce Lawyers. When he ankled in about an Hour later, he found his Bride m smiles. " It is all fixed! " he gurgled. " I ' ll tell the world, " she chimed. Felix slung his Mitts around her and slapped her one on the Kisser for Luck. " How dare you! " she screeched, as she hauled off and so3ked him with her Hay Maker right on the Breezer. " What ' s the matter? " Felix chirped. " Ain ' t you my Sweet- heart? " " Like Heck I am! " yapped the sweet little Country Girl. " I ' m your Grandmother now. I vamped the Old Geezer on the way Down- town and we stopped off at the License Bureau instead of the Jeweler ' s. " [1301 COLLEGE DIRECTORY PHI SIGMA PHI Uniform. Kollege Kut. Yell: " I Love Me! " Colors: Tea Green. Motto: " You know where the Phi Sigs go when they die ! " This bunch of enthusiastic work- ers (working dad for more money) organized in an effort to provide amusement during chapel hour. They were the originators of the anti-chapel club which they sup- port loyally. The membership is open to any- one possessing at least two of the following requisites: 1. Own a car. 2. Have plenty of spending money. 3. Own a car. 4. Have plenty of spending money. 5. Own a car. The pledges are allowed to wear pretty little purple and gold pins, these being the frat colors. Gold represents one of the entrance re- quirements and purple stands for the result of riding in such wrecks as Galloping Gretchen. Pledges are also allowed to pay dues, breathe, go to school, and in fact enjoy many privileges as members. Music is taken up by many of the Phi Sigs. As an orchestra, they are good ukelele players. Aim : " Free smokes, more dates per semester, less studies, and no chapel. " ALPHA SIGMA LAMBA Uniform: Varies from overalls to Tux, all wrong. Yell : " We don ' t smoke, we don ' t chew. We don ' t go with girls that do ! " Motto: " Never kiss the same girl twice. " Colors: Black and red. The Alpha Sigs have been famed for their versatility. Any one who can do something unusual is elig- ible. That accounts for the variety which varies fi ' om auto salesmen and doctors to Kommon Kollege Kut-ups. The colors have a deep signific- ance. Red represents the color of a blush, following the trading of swats at meetings. Black, the same blush the next mornmg. Black also signifies their prefer- ence for moonlight hikes over dances. The pledges are kindly treated for fear of losing them. This, they claim, is the weakness of other frats. Alpha Sigs are missing for five days after the regular initia- tion however, which is something. The president is kept a secret because Lincoln was assassinated. Aims: lOO ' V dancers, more mixed hikes, a banquet at every meeting. Scholarship Cup : After the sec- retary had figured that the Alpha Sigs always had the highest schol- arship, they decided to buy them- selves a cup to celebrate with. Some one is probably going to get fooled. THETA PHI DELTA Uniform: Sweaters and odd trousers. Motto: " House everything? " Colors: Purple and white. Yell: " Pay the rent! Pay the rent! Now! Now! Now! [131] GaieiOay. There has never been a definite reason put forth for the presence of this bunch on the Campus. The history of the frat follows. History: (We were bought off at the last minute.) Pledges of this outfit usually run about half of the enrollment of the school; this dwindles down to four or five by probation week on account of the black cat shortage. Plaster of Paris plays a big part in the initiation, as does the lusty paddle. We suggest that the fac- ulty be let in on this part to make it harder. There are quite a few strong backs in this outfit, athletes and such. There is one intellectual, but we can ' t remember who it is. Aim: Next year when we are pledging bent, We ' ll get some boys to pay the rent. KAPPA PSI DELTA Motto: " There ' s a little bit of bad in every good little girl. " This is the second oldest Sorority on the Campus, and we are very glad to say, one of the most modest and conservative to be found in any co-educational school in this great land of ours. Honest, they are. Among the Kanpas may be found the best dressed, best looking, best dancing, nurest, and most econom- ical of all women. They cater to intellectuality principally, but we would advise anyone who seeks dates with them to beg, steal, or borrow a car, and by all means have a pocket full of jack. Not that the dears would think of let- ting you even suggest spending a cent on them. Oh, dear no. They just walk you up to King Fong or the Brandies restaurant and order what they darn please. The Kap- pa ' s pin is an anchor but we think it would have been more appropri- ate if they had chosen a pickaxe, the symbol of one who mines gold. Their song is " My Anchor Holds " , and believe us, it sure does. They make a special effort to pledge only the cream of the school, so, if in after years you have a tender young daughter at the University, insist on her going Kappa, and her social prestige will be assured. SIGMA CHI OMICRON Colors: Blue and Gold. Motto: " Dig a little deeper. " The Sig Chis are the school ' s best, both from the standpoint of class, speed, and other paramount social requirements. The blue in their color scheme doesn ' t mean a darned thing, but the gold is to remind the dear sisters that after all, men are but poor thing at their best, so why not get all you can. There just naturally ain ' t a gang in school that can touch the girls with a forty foot pole. Why, didn ' t they import a hot orkestry from Lincoln ? The best that any of the rest of us could do was to pay a mere seventy-five iron men for Randall ' s Royal, or some other local talent. Peace is a cardinal virtue in the ranks of the Sig Chis. How- ever, the dear girls grow stale if there isn ' t a bit of dirt, so they simply have to kick over the traces and have three or four unanimous elections of officers per year. The rest of the social season is marked by Bridge, Literary Meetings and Kensingtons for the starving Trombonians. PHI DELTA PSI The Phi Delts are fairly new to the Campus, but don ' t you ever think that they can ' t flash some I132J class. One of the sisters (Flo Jones, if you ' ll promise not to tell a soul) lias more Sheiks on the string than any vamp in the long records of the world ' s history. And that ain ' t all. Say what you please, the girls have one great virtue Their pin resembles a sorority pin in all respects, and that ' s more than the other Uplift Societies can say. The Phi Celts nearly all went Theta during the second semester, but only one remained true to her pledge. That ' s what fickle crea- tures these women are. There isn ' t any real dirt about them this year. They are not commonly known as golddiggers or mercenary crea- tures, but in all our long experi- ences we have never known a one of them to turn down an ice cream cone or a bottle of pop. So there.

" When it comes to my vocation Nothing- could be finer Than calling out the stations On a big ocean liner. SCANDAL (Guaranteed to be 100% true, authorship unclaimed.) Tiny Mather is able to call off a date on the last minute. That ' s the very essence of Efficiency, we ' d say. - o - Bigamy made it ' s initial appear- ance at U. of 0. this year. Joe Houston and Homer were in pur- suit of the same woman, as were John Hale and Gordon Anderson. Friendly rivalry? Oh, sure! - 0 - Clara Mae ' s first love was with the York team that got such a swell licking on our floor in basket ball. Number 5 if we remember right. - 0 - Something happened to Clover and Ben. We couldn ' t get a bit of dirt from either of them but there is plenty to be got. - o - Gus, the old fake, finally hung his pin! - o - At one of Ida ' s recitals, little Wallace (Hugh ' s baby girl) wanted to be informed as to just who the lady was who was practicing with the rose in her hair. Miss Gould went to the Green- wich Village Follies. Can you imagine that ? And she missed the Shakespeare tragedian ! - o - Why should Jerry blush at the mention of parks? - o - Louis took his date to the Or- pheum. They sat in the Z row and nearly frose. Sweets to the sweet, says Louis. - 0 - The story telling club, meeting in the book store, was a big success till they initiated some of the girls too much. Also the stories were all done by the end of the second meeting. - 0 - Can you imagine Jane McConnell doing acrobatics for Calvin Pace? - 0 - While training- for tennis with Santy Welsh, Helen Wiesner was heard to say that their form was improving-. We are sincerely giaa to hear that. - o - A winning team, Leland Han- chette and Rozella Swenson. We saw ' em. - o - Mil Whitaker was game to go out for a ride with Gordon and George Johnson, but the gosh derned car wouldn ' t start. - o - Heinisch has went to the dogs. Stayed out till 5 a. m. with a girl! - o - Changstrom : " You ' re a coward. Why you are even afraid of your own shadow. " Damon Martis: " Why shouldn ' t I be? It looks like a crowd follow- ing me! " GoieiOoy WAIL OF THE FLUNKED The way of the chance guesser is hard. Dr. Schwarz: " Young man, do you smoke? " Harold Stine: " Is that an in- quiry, or an invitation? " FvEMEMBER ?

The " charmed circle " and it ' s effects? The snake? Sneak day and all the ensuing excitement ? College Club night? Rube Krogh. " I wouldn ' t go with Jim. He ' s a bad egg. " Florence: " I know it.

" Joe Houston: " I called Forney on the telephone but it was fruitless. " Lillian Holloway : " What do you mean, fruitless. " Joe: " I didn ' t get a date. " Good old Carl put on a demon- stration right before his frat brothers that proved him to be a real sheik. We promised to keep it a secret, but anyway it occurred in the back seat of a car belonging to Irving. Whoops! Mary Helmer: " You keep your eyes open tomorrow. " Tom Cowan: " Why? " Mary: " You ' d look silly going around with your eyes closed. " As Poe said to the wash women, " Wring out, wild belles. " IN PSYCHOLOGY Why the new way of seating Is liked so well. The girls don ' t know And the boys won ' t tell. McMasters: " Why not ask Kathleen for a date? " Carl S.: " I ' m afraid she ' d ac- cept. " McMasters: " No danger! " Birds of a feather flock together. That is what we ' ve heard. So Duke and Helen Wiesner Are the same darn kind of bird. Snyder: " Want some neckin ' lessons? " Hoehne: " No, thanks! I ' ve had plenty. " (That really happened, too.) PET WEAKNESSES Jeiiy — cigars. Homer — loud sox. Schneider — gob pants. Ted— Mary. Carl — loud ties. Young — reading 11 the magazines but not buying any. Baker: " Did Ruth blush when her stocking came down at the dance ? " Cliff Hansen: " I didn ' t notice. " Flo: " I ' m going out riding with Clare. Do I need a coat? " Forney: " No. Take a fan. " McMasters: " My girl said that that last poem of mine caused her heart to miss a beat. " Schleh: " I can ' t print it then. We won ' t use anything that will interfere with our circulation. " HOW TO KISS PROPERLY In the interest of the budding generation, and in an effort to start gallant young Romeos on the way to love with the proper concep- tion of things, this epistle is writ- ten. Have your girl in a dimly lighted room, preferably with only the light from a floor lamp glowing softly upon you. Draw the girl closely to you, at the same time placing your left arm beneath her right shoulder blade. Now, draw her tightly to you, and place your right arm over her left shoulder, and press your hand firmly on her left shoulder blade. The conver- sation should have, by this time, come to a close, and the only sound in the room should be the erratic breathing of the two of you. Bend the upper part of your body for- ward to such an angle that your lips are parallel with hers. She will, by this time, have bent back- ward to such a degi-ee that you must hold tightly to avoid her be- coming overbalanced and falling backwards. Protrude your lips un- til they meet hers. Breath long and deep, as if you have abandoned all thought of life or its responsi- bility. Now, with all the dramatic action that you can command, tear yourself from the girl, at the same time saying, " My Gawd, Agnes, forgive me. I didn ' t realize what I was doing.
