Within the last five years special efforts have again been made to provide more adequate ac- commodations for the growing student body. This campaign resulted in the purchase in 1936 of a site on Dodge street just west of Elmwood park. The result of a thorough investigation and study over a period 0-f several years, the final choice of this site by the regents had hardly been announced when it evoked considerable comment and criticism among dissenting groups. The fact that the chosen site was located just outside- the city limits provided an opening wedge for its opponents who sought to block its annexation by the city. The final outcome of the controversy that was waged for nearly a month, during which time the regents' selec- tion had been supported by the student body and by persons interested in the univer- sity, was a decision rendered by the city council incorporating the tract into the city limits. Nearly simultaneous with the council's decision was a pronouncement from the federal Public Works Administration authorizing an appropriation of S414,000 to fa- cilitate the university's new construction program. The sum represented 45? of the estimated cost of completing the new campus, the other 5570 to be raised by the uni- versity. TGMAI-IAWK 1 '38 :" ,, Y W Q' .ia- .Al The site purchased by the regents includes at present twenty acres. lt is planned that as the university expands thirty more acres just west of this tract will also be purchased. Situated, as it is, on Dodge street, it is, north and south, in the very middle of the city. With the tendency of the city to develop westward, it is estimated that several decades hence the University of Omaha will occupy a, position near to the center of the city. Beauty and educational needs considered, the site is ideal. In the heart of one of the finest residential sections, it lends itself excellently to landscaping for a beauti- ful campus, and it also is remote from traffic and other disturbances. Most important of all, perhaps, is the perfect freedom for expansion and development. Visioned within a decade are a library, a gymnasium and athletic plant, and a student union building. Also contemplated are a separate school of business administration, enlarged and mod- ified engineering shops, a service research institute, and a special building for applied arts. The heat of the drive for new buildings seemed to foster in the students a new and more cooperative fellowship, and an atmosphere of enthusiasm and hopefulness is predominant on the campus today, for all students anticipate the additional possibil- ities for development to be offered them in the future.

The University of Omaha had its beginnings in 1908 through the endeavors and sacrifices of the late Dr. Daniel E. jenkins, his board of trustees, and a group of instructors, many of whom contributed their services. In so doing they hoped to fill the need for an easily available, non-sectarian, co-educational university. On October 8, 1908, the board incorporated the University of Omaha, actual educational work began in September, 1909, with an enrollment of twenty-six students. Dr. Jenkins, then a professor and dean of the faculty at the Omaha Presbyterian 'Theological seminary, rejecting numerous offers, including the presidency of what was to become the National University of Brazil, a teaching position at Princeton Theo- logical Seminary, and the pulpits of many large eastern churches, became the first president of the University of Omaha. For eleven years he accepted no salary, but diverted the money into what he deemed more important channels. The original building had been an old Victorian mansion, purchased with the plot of ground upon which it was located from judge W. A. Redick. ln 1911 a con- tribution by Mrs. M. O. Maul made possible the construction o-f the john Jaco-bs Memorial gymnasium, named for her son. However, the need for a more adequate administration and class building was soon felt, and in 1916 a drive was initiated to raise blS100,000. for such a structure. The late George A. Joslyn agreed to contribute the last 252 5,000 of the fund, and in a short time the drive was completed and Joslyn Hall was built. It was during the 1920s that expanding interests made it feasible to establish the university more permanently, and in 1930 the people of Omaha voted to place this institution under municipal sponsorship. T he faculty, meanwhile, had been greatly enlarged, new departments had been added, and the science hall, library annex, and Menls and Women's Faculty build- ings were soon a.cquired. With the presidency of Rowland Haynes, who succeeded the late Dr. William E. Sealock in 1933, agitation for an entirely new plant reached its climax, and construction of a new series of buildings became fact. Thus the old university, as it is known to those of us who are about to leave it, was conceived and developed through the labors of that first president and board of trustees and their successors. While their vision has not yet been fully realized, the near future will undoubtedly bring attainments beyond their dreams.

Haynes wrote the name of the Uni- versity across the national educational picture when, in January of 1938, in his annual report to the Board of Regents he revealed for the first time a basically new idea in education. He called it Hlong-time individual college educationw. In simplest terms the idea is this: the student should not consider' his college education at an end when he has won his degree or has left college halls, but both he and the college should continue a relationship of study and guidance to continue a few years, or many years after the .student has embarked upon his adult career. I Disclosure of the Haynes plan excited interest and comment throughout the nation and educational world. Laudatory articles were carried in the press and educational journals from coast to coast. I The plan ties college educa.tion into the daily work of the self-supporting student by helping the student learn Uwhat his growing experience reveals that he will need to knoww. lt rejects the idea that a degree alone is a. certificate of education. It holds, rather, that no one can reach the saturation point in the process of education, that the latter con- tinues as long as life itself. lt advocates guiding the adult through this long process. lt gives him an introduction into the many fields of learning, revealing to him the wisdom of the ages and giving him a bird's-eye view of the far-flung horizons of knowl- edge. Then it would help him acquire the specinc knowledge which would be most helpful to him as he pursues his chosen career. To quote President Haynes: "How does this proposal differ from what we have now? Chiefly in being usual and planned instead of being rare and haphazard. 'This plan is sound because it rests on two facts of the educational life. The first is a fact of the content of education: the second is a fact of the method of educa- tion. The first fact is that so much has been discovered that no student can learn all that he needs to know whether he stays at college full time for two years or for six or eight years. The second fact is that people learn better if they a.re moved by cur- rent interests as well as by remote interests. What we are surely going to do next month is a more powerful spring to action than what we may possibly do ten years from now. "I have said that we have at the University of Omaha the foundations on which this program may be built. Specifically, what do I mean? "First, we have the friendly and intelligent cooperation of the Superintendent of Schools and of the principals of the high schools in this city. "Second, we have already begun the Work-Study Plan. f'Third, we have a guidance system for students at the University. 'fFourth, we already have the basis for a School of Adult Education." One editorial commented, 'fThis is a promising idea and one that, when it be- gins its operation in September at the University of Omaha, is bound to be watched with eager attention throughout the educational world. It may also be discovered that as the long-time individual co-llege education plan grows, the university itself will take on new color and meaning because of the association with it of tho-se who have assumed adult responsibilities, but continue to seek college help as they advance in life. TCDMAI-IAWK K '38 l EDGAR A. HOLT DEAN OF THE COLLEGE Friend, advisor, and professor are but a few of the titles by which Dean Edgar A. Holt. is known to the students of the University of Omaha. His quiet speech and manner, his efficient handling of all details, no matter how trivial, his quick, yet thorough, understanding of the problems of the student are among the attributes which make him invaluable to students and faculty alike. Since his coming to the university in 1931, Dean Holt has been alert to the opportunities of education, and few have contributed more constructive effort toward the new university than he. Although he is head of the department of history and government, his interest in all departments is active. He has been honored by many of the organizations of the campus. It is Dean Holt whom we may thank for much of the effective leadership in bringing about the more complete curriculum which we will take with us into the new university building. TCDMAI-IAWK K 38 o ! l RENE E. H. STEVENS FORMER DEAN OF WOMEN It was with sincere regret that the students of the University of Omaha met the announcement last spring of the resignation of Mrs. Rene E. H. Stevens from her position as dean of women. ln her departure, the women of the university lost a loyal friend and trusted contidante, who, with her tact and diplomacy in meeting and aiding all with whom she came in contact, was inva.luable as a. counselor. Mrs. Stevens came to the University in 1929 and was active throughout her career here as a motivator of and participator in the social and cultural life of the school and the city. Previous to her association with the University, she had ha.d broad ex- perience as instructor and principal in schools throughout the country. In the pre- war years she was a most active supporter' of woman suffr'a.g'e, and today she main- tains an interest in the League of Women Voters, the Urban League, and other civic movements. To Mrs. Stevens we owe our appreciation for her unselhsh contributions to the student life of the campus. TOMAI-IAWK 4 '38 JOHN BAKER, B.S. PI-IYSIFAI. EDUCATION MARTIN W. BUSH, I-'.A.G.O.

HOSMAN DIRECTOR OF EXTENSION The Extension Division, the agency through which the services of the University are made available to metropolitan Omaha, has continued to grow through the year 1937-38 under the direction of E. M. Hosman. Its constant development demon- strates that its program is one of service to all interests, sections, and departments of the university. Since its student body is made up largely of more mature students, and its services are designed for adults, President Haynes has recommended that the Division be developed into an actual School of Adult Education. f In general the Division offers two types of courses-degree-credit courses offered by most departments of the University, and special non-credit courses. Some of the latter are of general cultural interest, while others lead toward greater vocational and professional proficiency. Approximately one-fourth to one-third of the graduating class each year complete their degree requirements in Extension classes. One of the purposes of the Extension Division is to make courses of university grade available to as many persons as possible. To this end classes are scheduled at TOMAHAWK K '38 WILMA LINCOLN PRESIDENT OF EXTENSION COUNCIL convenient places in the city. The Downtown Art Center at 1307 Farnam street a.nd the Baird building have become important class centers this year. Several students are also enrolled in correspondence courses. Activities of students in the Division are sponsored by the University Extension Council which plans the social program each year. The officers for the current year have been Wilma Lincoln, president, Darrald Harsh, vice-president, Ellen Hartman, secretary, and Robert Converse, treasurer. Each year the program of the Division features a number of new courses for adults. Included in the schedule for the past year were courses in Radio Broadcasting, Dress Designing, Creative Writing, P.T.A. Administration and Organization, Route Salesmanship, Miniature Sculpture, Chartered Life Insurance Underwriting, Lip Read- ing, a very successful course in Art Appreciation under Dr. Berthe Koch, an intensive course in Advertising Design taught by Dale Nichols of Chicago, and Nursing Edu- cation by Phoebe Kandel of Greeley, Colorado. Among the new projects of cultural interest organized during the past year' was the Book-a-Week club, whose membership reached a total of more than sixty during the year, thus forming one of the largest active groups of its kind in the city. Other units of the Division were the classes in Law for Women, Personal Development, World Problems, Modern Poetry, and the Open Forum club. TOMAHAWKK 38 so WORK-STU DY J. E. WOODS DIRECTOR OF WORK-STUDY Based on the premise that the most useful education is a, combination of class.- room knowledge and Working experience, the Work-Study plan was put into operation at the University of Omaha by J. E. Woods in the summer of 1936. Since that time iifty-three students have taken advantage of the plan. This plan was originated about thirty years ago at the University of Cincinnati and is now being used in many universities, the most notable of which is Antioch col- lege at Yellow Springs, Ohio. Through actual experience on a job, the student is able to test his ability and his interests, and to discover the field for which he is best suited. At the same time he develops a knowledge of business and industry that is helpful to him after he grad- uates. In this manner the student gets practical training in conjunction with his more theoretical college work. g TOMAHAWK K '38 CATHRYN STROHBEHN RALPH KLINE Financial need is not, at present, a requisite for a. job on Work-Study. Any sophomore, junior, or senior who shows willingness, has a good scholastic record, and has general qualilications for the position, as shown by aptitude tests, will be recom- mended by the University of Omaha. The final selection is made by the employer. The student on the job is paid a. regular salary by his employer. Each Work- Study student is required to deposit a specified portion of his earnings with the Uni- versity bursar. Upon his return to school, after a six-month period at Work, the student may draw out the money and use it as needed for his tuition, books, and mis- cellaneous expenses. The Work-Study plan enables the university to broaden the scope of its service, to make a university education possible for many more, to help them rind their niche in the world ofhbusiness and industry, and to help employers bridge the difiicult period of practical training and find employees suited to the positions to be filled. During the worst period of the depression, about eighty-tive per cent of graduates from schools using the W ork-Study plan found jobs immediately, compared to about twenty per cent who found jobs after graduating from the usual four-year college COIIYSC. In addition to the Work-Study plan, the university maintains a student employ- ment service for those students who wish part-time jobs to help- pay their college ex- penses. Many employers offer permanent positions to the students and ask that the same student return to their firms during his next work period.

They have given their time and leadership to make the student body which will move into new buildings a stronger and more complete organization. Important in the social and political life of the campus is the Student Council with its senior members, Edward Dulacki, Ruth Grenville, Edgar Howe, Roger Hughes and Irene Tinkham. Many of the seniors have been active in various capacities on the Gateway and Tomahawk staffs. Others, such as Theda Anthes, Lois Hindman, Don Petersen, and Floyd Stancliffe, have assisted in departmental work. The music department with Betty Minteer, James Peterson and Florence Stein- berg, and the debate teams, of which Macy Baum, Lucille Hurlbut, and Fannie Wit- kin Pezzner are members, have brought new honors to the school. The senior year is being brought to a close with a junior-Senior banquet, a bac- calaureate, and the commencement exercises which are being held. in the new univer- sity building. Senior sponsors are M iss Grace Gunn and Dr. S. L. Witman.

In order to assure the permanence of the new organization, the president, Fra.nk C. Heinisch, filed the newly adopted constitution and by-laws with the Secretary of State, thereby incorporating the association. HThe purpose of this corporation," as stated in the articles, 'ishall be to develop, renew, and maintain friendships among its members and to do all things necessary to further the general welfare of the University of Omaha." In its new form the organization provides for the election of a total of fifteen directors in addition to the staff of officers. The affairs of the corporation are to be governed by the board, and the members have power to till vacancies that may occur in their board. At the meeting held for the adoption of by-laws, five members were elected for a three-year term, five for a two-year term, and five fo-r a one-year term. Hereafter, at every annual meeting, five members are to be elected to the executive council for a term of three years. Much of the activity of the group has been centered around the attempt to con- vert several thousand associate members of the association into active members. Membership in the organization is given to all pers-ons who have received honora.ry degrees or have graduated from or have attended the University of Omaha for one full school year. Active members are distinguished from associates by the payment of dues. TCDMAI-IAWK 38 Besides the annual dinner and meeting, the alumni pa.rticipated in the Home- coming festivities. At that time they were reunited. with old classmates and met the students who are carrying the traditions of the University of Omaha.. Miss Margaret Fischer was their representative on the program following the banquet. Many of the alumni are students in the Extension division or summer school. A few are on the university facultyg others are engaged in various business or pro- fessional pursuits in Omaha. or elsewhere. Since they still maintain an active interest in the university, many of them proved of invaluable sewice in the raising of funds and in the struggle for the new site. Officers of the Alumni association are Frank C. Heinisch, presidentg Margaret Fischer, vice-president, George Pardee, treasurer, and Mary Quinby, secretary. The Board of Directors during the past year included Harry Byrne, William Campen, Mrs. Mary Uhl Co-llins, Mrs. Herbert Daniel, Dorothy Edwards, Herbert Fischer, Leon Fouts, John Herzog, Fred Nelson, Gus Seig, Irvin Stalmaster, William Thompson, J. C. Van Avery, Mrs. Thomas Waters and Reed Zimmerman. "The Alumnif' wrote President Heinisch, "are the one group which will always present a sympathetic attitude toward any question which affects the University of Omaha. They are a group which affects the University and which permeates the entire strata of the community. Economic and political movements in Omaha have alumni of our school taking an active part in the-mf, For these reasons, the group has been reorganized. TOMAHAWK ff '38 Qcfivifies TCDMAHAWK 1,38 ? .

As a. part of this program the members registered 176 former and present scouts who are now students here. Among the other projects sponsored by Alpha Phi Omega was the sale of candy at home basketball games. The money thus raised was added to a fund to be used to purchase a Hag' for the new building.

M ,ik H fffxkflf K ORCH ESIS Modern interpretative dancing has within the last few years come into rank as a.n important phase of education in the arts. In keeping with the progress and change of the dance, the Orchesis group has furthered creative aptitudes and has changed from a small group to an organization of prominence both in campus activities and in city-wide recognition. Under the sponsorship of Miss Ruth Diamond, and with Mrs. A. C. Fellman as piano accompanist, the group meets one evening every week to gain a better under- standing of the intricacies of the modern dance and to express the creative spirit of interpretative dancing. Illustrative of this study to perfect technique is the comple- tion of Bach's Two Part Invention. The largest undertaking of the year was a dance concert by Doris Humphrey and Charles Weidman, sponsored by Orchesis on February 22. A lecture demonstration was made available Without charge to students in the afternoon and a concert open to the public followed in the evening. The Orchesis group and Miss Diamond presented a lecture demonstration of dance fundamentals, and of traditional national dance characteristics for the Human- ities department, in accordance wtih their study program. A lecure demonstration at the Rome hotel featuring three members of the group entertained the Hadassah Women's Club. On October 6, the entire group participated in a program for the Nebraska Fed- eration of Womens Clubs at the Joslyn Memorial. On November 28, a ceremony was presented at the Sunday Vesper services of the Unitarian church and on February 8, at the Social Workers Club, a lecture demonstration on the modern dance was given. The group also composed a dan-ce to John Hefti's 'fMystic Pooln. Dances reflecting the progress motive are now being planned and developed by the group for presentation at the dedication ceremonies of the new Omaha University. TCDMAI-IAWK K 38 W. A. A.

By means of -contest three years ago the Tomahawk was chosen for its new name. The theme of this yearls issue, which includes many of the newly organized clubs of the campus for the hrst time, is centered around construction, a farewell to the old school and a welcome to the new. The book is devoted not only to senior and campus pictures, but to pictures and articles of the entire faculty, student body, and most groups, social, political and educational. As in the iirst two Tomahawles, a woman has again been selected as editor. Editor-in-chief this year is Marjorie Disbrowg James Roman is business manager. The staff is made up of members of all classes. The circulation of this year's Tomahawk is the largest thus far, and, due to the initiation of the student activity ticket system, all regularly enrolled students received copies. The Tomahawk, published annually, gives a lasting record of the school year, historically, scholastically, and socially. - Q - - - 1 '- TCDMAI-IAWK K '38 Stunding: ROSIQNBAUM, SII.xIcImAN, DAVIS, Nmsox, SAIITII, DULAc'KI, SICK, HUGHES, TIIRI3ADu1I,l., SAVAGE, CRAIx1IiIc Seated: S'I'ARRI1I'T, HARKNIAAS, BIIVKNA.

Homecoming is the fall festival at which old grads are welcomed back and old traditions made new. The celebration this year began on the evening of Friday, November 12, with a pep rally and speeches by President Rowland Haynes, Coaches Sed Hartman and john Baker, and game captain Royce Brown, a bonfire and snake dance on the Science hall athletic held. It was then that students first learned the identity of the new Indian Princess, Betty Minteer, who was elected by vote of the student body. Miss Minteer is a graduating senior, for two years president of her sorority, Gamma Sigma Uinicroin, and also president of Sigma l'i Phi. A winner of a four-year scholar- ship-, she is a member of Polygot, of the choir and women's quartet, an honorary mem- ber of Kappa Mu Lambda, besides having served as treasurer and vice-prcsident of the Feathers. On Saturday the true spirit of the plains again asserted itself when students braved a, whirling dust storm to cheer the Fardinals on to a 19-0 victory over the Wayne Wildcats. It was in a hilarious mood that the 400 Homecoming banqueters gathered that evening at the Rome hotel which had been decorated in cardinal and black for the occasion. Speakers of the evening, introduced by toastmaster Macy Baum, included President Haynes, Frank T. B. Martin, member of the Board of Regents: Roger Hughes, student representative: Margaret Fischer, vice-president of the Alumni Asso- ciation, and Miss Minteer, who was presented with a gift by Edgar Howe on behalf of the students. Dancing, inonopolized by lively renditions of the Big Apple, suggestive of the harvest festival of our Indian ancestors, followed in the hotel ballroom. Edgar Howe, general chairman of the Homecoming, was assisted by Edward Du- lacki, Ruth Grenville, I.eona,rd Kurtz, Robert Landstrom, Harriet Salmon and Irene Tinkham. TDMA!-IAWK K '38 B ETTY Ml NTEE R Homecoming Princess MA-I E DAY Ma-ie day of 1957 surpassed its tradition of festivity and fun. Culminating ac- tivity of the school year, this day was full of representative school activities. Follow- ing a hilarious morning of frosh-soph battling, the student body gathered in the late afternoon at Peony park. Under the direction of the Ma-ie day committee- whose members were Bess Greer Shoecraft, Edgar Kersenbrock, Harold Sorenson, and james Smith, the festivities be- gan with the interfraternity sing, won by Pi Omega Pi. The Amateur Show which followed brought to light the talents of many students. The highlight of the evening was the presentation of Princess Attira III, Betty Majors. Clad in Indian costume, she was attended by the other candidates for the honor. Miss Majors had served as president and as secretary-treasurer of the Student Council, and. had been a member of the Pan-Hellenic Council, the Internationa.l Relations club, Phi Alpha Theta, and W.A.A. Following the ceremonies was the Ma-ie day show, a variety of acts and skits sponsored by campus organizations. Phi Sigma. Phi, performing after hours of train- ing under Miss Ruth Diamond, carried off top honors with an interpretative dance re- quiring admirable precision and muscular control. Kappa Psi Delta. presented a cari- cature in costume of Shakespeare's "Merchant of Venice", while the Theta Phi Deltas turned to the North woods and performed the NShooting of Dan McGrewH, with Frank Spangler doing his bit in the role of 'tthe lady that's known as Loul'. Pi Omega Pi presented "Campus Capersn, demonstrating musically the life of a coed from dawn to dark. Alpha Sigma Lambda offered a musical number and the Drama club did a melodramatic skit. Sigma Chi Omicron's number included a singing chorus and solo dances by Betty Arnold and Dorothy Twiss. Alpha Gamma. Chi presented clever take-offs on the titles of current songs, plays, and novels. The activities of the 1937 Ma-ie Day were concluded by a dance. The date set, for Ma-ie Day this year was May 27. In charge of formula.ting plans for it was Edgar Kersenbrock, chairman of the committee, with Francis Nelson, Ruth Archer, Nadine Kirkpatrick, and Edmund Barker working with him.

The Tomahawk introduces the Beauty Queens of 1938: Florence Kennedy, Ruth Kassal, and Margenne No-land. Miss Kennedy, better known to her friends as "Coke'l, is chic and piiquant with large blue eyes and light brown hair. She is a freshman a.nd a member of Sigma Chi Omicron sorority which she served as sergeant-at-arms of the pledge gro-up last semester. She may be found bobbing around the campus at almost any time in the smart. sport clothes which she loves best. Beauty Queen Kassal is the out-door type of girl with short dark curly hair and sparkling brown eyes. Tennis racket, volley ball, bow and arrow, all are favorites with her, and she is soccer representative on the W.A.A. bo-ard. A sophomore, she is a member of Kappa Psi Delta sorority. Quiet but clever and very intelligent is Margenne Noland, a freshman who en- tered the university as an honor student from North High school. Margenne is noted for her deep dimples and twinkling eyes. She is a typical all-roundl girl, deeply in- terested in all the many activities in which she participates. She is a member of Pi Omega Pi sorority. Differing from most collegiate queen contests, the choice of these queens was made solely upon the basis of photographs entered by the contestant, her friends, or some campus organization. The twenty-five entries were submitted for judging to a committee consisting of Miss Elizabeth Ann Davis, Queen of Ak-Sar-Ben, Augustus W. Dunbier, artist, and J. T. Stewart, 3rd, The three winners were selected in the order of their comparative beauty in the eyes of the judges. We salute the Beauty Queens of 1938. May they be the first of a, long line of lovely queens at the University of Omaha. TOMAHAWK 4 38 5 2 EE QE Y 3 Y Q W ss s 3 s 1, 21 2? 2 5 5 5 2 2 2 5 F a ii E 5 i 5 2 L ,.

HARTMAN COACH JOHN BAKER COACHING STAFF The University of Omaha coaching staff for the past year consisted of two highly respected leaders and two capable assistants. Sed Hartman was director of athletics and head football and track coach while johnny Baker was head basketball and foot- ball line coach. Coach Hartman, a product o-f our own state university, came to Omaha from Cotner college in 1931, and although hampered by lack of material, he has boosted the University of Omaha from the Nebraska Intercollegiate conference into the North Central conference, one of the strongest in the Midwest. The University of Omaha deeply regrets losing its basketball and assistant foot- ball coach Johnny Baker, who has been at the university for the past three years. Mr. Baker came here from Iowa State T eachers' college where he had been head coach for three years. He received his B.S. degree from the University of California where he made an impressive football record, culminating in his unanimous choice for All-American guard in 1931. Leo Peary and Harold Johnk coached the freshman football team. Peary also coached the freshman basketball team to an envious record while- Johnk took over in- tramural athletics after football season. Both Peary and johnk are former' Cardinal athletes who turned down professional contracts after graduation in order to coach at Omaha.. While students here, Peary at fullback and johnk at center rnade the all North Central teams for three years. Peary was elected to the Little All-American team in his senior year. TOMAI-IAWK 1 38 BACHMAN BOLDENOW BROWN DOHERTY FOCDTBALL Football at the University of Omaha during the past season was not as success- ful as in former years, but credit is due to the boys of the football squad for their fine spirit. Still new to the strong North Central conference which Omaha joined in 1935, the University has been handicapped by a lack of material. Under the guidance of Head. Coach Sed Hartman and Line Coach johnny Baker, the Redbirds started preparation for their 1937 games in September with only eighteen men checking out equipment, of these only eight were lettermen. With the iirst game less than three weeks away, Coach Hartmanls first job was to find a. quarterback to fill the shoes of "Tippyl7 Tyler, Hashy signal barker of the 1936 squad. After numerous experiments, Coach Hartman decided on Royce Brown, who had been outstanding as a fullback the year before. In the line Johnny Bakerls biggest task was to till the gap' in the center of the line left by big Harold johnk, all W for ,,M:cf:"":gfLci1f'Nfff .c,. iEQfFfffW ' 1- ,..,, We,Mcitmfgmmff-faf,cvtacfc:g,,4 ,r,c,c mlm ff' ,lf 51, fit l l Ib I si C1 Q r Q ,l 1 'ir ,I K 43 'Xt FN z X . M, North Central conference center. A rugged sophomore, f'Redl' Mazzeri, ntted into the pivot post nicely. Threadgill, Lebert and Riggins traded guards, and Kritner, Schmeckpeper and Doherty filled the tackle posts. Martin Thomas gave relief at tackle toward the end of the season. The backfield usually lined up with Brown at fullback Ccalling signals from that po-sitionj, Boldenow and Milone at the halls, and Kulper dividing his time between quarterback and half. Kersenbrock and Bachman were usually at the wings with Flesher acting as a relief man. Veneziano, quarter- back, and Grote, halfback, improved rapidly toward the end of the season and were of great help. In the opening game at Fargo, North Dakota State performed in midseason form and walloped the Cards, 34-7. Omaha earned its sole touchdown when Milone crashed through left tackle and outsprinted the Bison secondary. In the second game, the Cardinals ran against a hard charging South Dakota State team at Brookings to absorb a 20-O beating. Omahafs first home appearance was against Morningside on October 9 at the Benson stadium. Veneziano, Brown and FI EsH1-.R KERs12NBRoCK GROTE KRITNIQR KlTl,1'ER LEBER MAZZER1 M1LoNE PETERSON Riot INXS Kersenbrock stood out in this game for their running, blocking and p-ass catching, but Morningside won, 14-O. During a downpour of rain the victory-starved Redbirds marched out on a mud- covered field against a mediocre Haskell Indian team to administer a 28-Ol spanking to the Braves. A long pass from Brown to Kersenbrock set the pins for the first touchdown, Kulper going over through center. The Cardinals played their best ball of the season against Bradley Tech at Peoria, Ill. The Omahans scored early on Bradley when Kulper rammed over from the six-yard line to give Omaha a 7-6 lead at the half. But the Techsters unbagged some tricky passes in the final minutes to forge ahead and win. Omaha outplayed the Illinois outfit according to statistics, but Bradley scored twice in the last eight minutes on two long passes. Brown was up to his usual fine game in the backheld TOMAI-IAWK 1 '38 n-. while Don Grote .came through like a veteran. Kersenbrock, Threadgill and Schmeck- peper stood out on the line. South Dakota U wore the Omahans down to let the Coyotes win Z6-O after Omaha held them to a one-touchdown margin in the first half, the score coming just before the gun went off. Schmeckpeper, Kritner, and Doherty, showed up well on the line. Brown gave a line punting exhibition in this game, booting the ball sixteen times for an average of 45 yards. Homecoming created much excitement and helped to pep up the hapless Cardin- als when they squared off with the Wayne Wildcats. Wayne scored early on a fumble, but Russell Riggins blocked a punt to give the Cards their comeback start. The rest of the game was all Omaha. Wild Bill Kulper, Brown and Veneziano had a field day through the Wayne line. Kersenbr0ck's pass snagging, and the line work of Riggins, Leber and Flesher was good. The final count was 19-6 for Omaha. In closing the season the Iowa Teachers slapped a 13-O defeat on Omaha at Cedar Falls in a. game played in sub-zero weather. Omaha threatened several times, but penalties always foiled them. Backfield honors went to Brown, Boldenow, and Kulper while Bachman and Rushlau boosted the line efforts. This was the final game for Brown, Boldenow, Flesher, Riggins and Peterson, who graduate in june.

The Umahans won two games out of eleven, but their lioor work and action made up for their low position in the conference standings, and all Cardinal opponents were forced to go the limit to down them. The most colorful game of the s.eason was played at Cedar Falls when the Cards lost to the Iowa State Teachers, runnersup for the Conference championship, by a very close score of 31 to 33. This was the best game of the season for the Omaha boys and the toughest for the Teachers. The team won its lone conference game from North Dakota State, 45 to 44. A non-conference win over Midland college in Morningside tournament brightened the outlook early in the season, but injuries lowered the Cardinal stock. A thigh injury which was dealt to Earl Strohbehn, regular forward, in an early practice session gave the team its greatest setback. 'tStroby" was forced to give up basketball just when the team needed him most. Edgar Kersenbrock and Dale Wolf were given honorable mentions on the North Central conference team. Wolf led the Cards, placing sixth in the individual confer- ence scoring list with 127 points. Kersenbrock was eighth with 85. Attendance at the home games showed a marked increase over that of last sea- son, and the fans were treated to a type of basketball which kept them on their toes.

Coach Sed Hartman had to replace the loss of Harold Johnk, conference discus champio-ng Fred ffTippy' Tyler, twice winner of the high hurdles in the conference meet, and LeRoy Olson, veteran distance runner, who usually finished in the money. These three graduateed last June and forced Coach Hartman to search for new talent to fill their shoes. A The 1938 team boasted several promising sophomores who garnered points this spring. Among the first year men were: Don Grote, high jump and broad jumpg joe Mazzeri, javeling Arthur Milow, pole-vault, LaVern Kritner, weightsg Chester Wells, relays and Ralph Schmeckpeper, 440 yard dash. The veterans and chief point getters in this year's campaign included: Ray Linde- kugal, high jump and pole vault, and john Elliott, weight man, who hit their stride early in the season and led the cinder artists in points at the end of the season. Coach Hartman had Earl Strohbehn for the distance runners while Bob Flesher, Sam Vene- ziano, Bill Kulper were entered in the sprints. Melvin Boldenow was used in the middle distances and Dale Wolf in the high jump. Veneziano was also entered in the pole-vault. The Omahans finished fifth at the conference meet held at Grand Forks, North Dakota, last year but with the larger and stronger squad this year, a better showing was made. - Besides the conference tourney, the Cards saw action at the Hastings relays, the Dakota relays and the Wayne invitational meet.

WOMENS SPORTS Comes a time in the life of a miss when a bit of reminiscing is not amiss, the which there were plenty of this past year in girlsl sports. In fact the girls became so interested in athletics, it seems the only way the boys could get near them was to sign up for mixed volley ball. Dear Di: The first remnants I recollect are the Greeks after the Amazons tore them apart on the soccer field. Soccer is one game which no lady can play in a lady-like way. Before she knows it, she is kicking and whooping it up to beat the band. Well, Di, after me and Ruth Kassal, who was in charge of soccer, got the remnants together, a revival of gastronomic interest was in order, but not for long. I have never seen a Greek or Amazon army in action at a table, but I got a pretty good idea just from Watching between bites at the annual soccer feed. Came the snow flurries and blasts of winter wind, and the sylph-like figures did Hit indoors to volley balls. The impetuous Barbs excelled skillfully in physical con- tortions, and if you don't believe it, just try to return one of Ellen Smiths serves once. Ellen was in charge of volley ball, the which did thrive and flourish under her. En- suing inter-sorority tournament was conducted on the principle: 4'If any person slap you on one cheek, donft just stand there, do somethingf' Accordingly, each sorority when it was once defeated did call upon its spirit of revenge for a comeback. But the Barbs won, and they don't even belong to a sorority, which, come to think of it, if they did, would be kind of an enigma, wouldn't it? Mixed volley ball provided a. slight variety, which was that two sexes instead of TOMAI-IAWK ff '38 WOMENS SPORTS Nl.-XRTIIA STVART BARBARA Fuinmz one did participate, thirty-two of the feminine and a like number of the remaining sex. In the spring ping-pong and shuffle-board held us for a. spell. Ruth Grenville was the power behind this project, which was indeed a project. The player did pro- ject with all his might and main a number of projectiles of the circular celluloid type in ping-pong and of the wooden disc-like variety in shuffle-board. She who smacks last wins, and so evolved the champion ping-pcnger, Martha Stuart, victor over Eliza- beth Mayne. Doubles were twice as exciting, and the Arnold-Sorensen duo survived finally. Then came the biggest step in evolution: from ping-pong to basketball. A visit to the gym of an evening would reveal to the puzzled ob-server four teams of six girls each hurling basketballs vindictively at one another, oftentimes missing. In the full bloom of spring, the cycle is completed with tennis, golf, and archery, We are especially proud of our archery team, Di, on acco-unt of the rating they re- ceived last year in the Annual Intercollegiate Telegraphic Archery Tournament spon- sored by the National Archery Association. In a list of 101 teams, our team placed thirty-ninth, and in the Midwestern district of fourteen states, we placed fifth, which is not so bad at that. Mary Anne Harrington Britton and Irma Peake were the big shots in class B of the tournament. Personally, Di, if this summary of the year's sports proves anything it is this: that the modern girl has at last realized the necessity of developing self-protection since the double standard is fast collapsing into a state where fraternity, liberty, and equality prevail. Mick. TCDMAHAWK 38 D+, INTRAMU RAL SPCJRTS A variety of sports and competitive games was offered in intramural circles this year in order to give every student on the campus an opportunity to participate. Three fra.ternity teams and one Barb' team furnished the action in the basket- ball tournament held during the noon hours, displaying plenty of thrills and spills which drew large crowds daily. The Barbs defeated the Phi Sigs in the semi-iinals, then nosed out the Thetas, 28-19, to win the tournament and possession of the Alpha Phi Omega. intramural trophy for the year. Members of the championship team were Herbert Meiches, Lewis Curtis and Arthur Allard, forwards, Howard Price and Monroe Coleman, cen- ters, Louis Diamantis and Clinton Sergeant, guards. The wrestling and boxing tournaments also proved huge successes as new campus champions were crowned in all events. Winners on the mat were Arthur Vuylstek, 135 lb. class, Emil Blazek, 145 lb. class, Gene Irvine, 155 lb. class, Bill Humes, 165 lb. class, and Louis Profeda, 175 lb. class. The boxing finals were the talk of the campus long after the champions were crowned. Keen competition in all classes made the matches very difficult to decide. Boxing champions were Monroe Coleman, 126 lb. class, Sam. Veneziano, 135 lb. class, Don Grote, 147 lb. class, Bob Dunn, 160 lb. class, and George Threadgill and Julius Bachman, 175 lb. class. Thirty-two students participated in the mixed volley ball tourney conducted by Miss Marian McClaren and Miss Ruth Diamond, of the Womens. Athletic Depart- ment. Eight teams Were entered in the tournament. On the winning team were Ellen Smith, Dorothy Shepherd, Barbara Flebbe, Ruth Kassal, Don Korisko, Pete Earson, Harold Grau and Rex Nelson, capta.in.

Each society is represented by a. delegate and an alternate on the Council, which su- pervises all dances, the rushing, pledging, and other Greek activities. The council opened the social season this year with a dance at Peony Park. As is customary, the event marked the inauguration of the series of pledge dances held during the fall term. The season was closed by a council dance, also held at Peony Park, in May. In order to become an active member in a Greek society, students must meet the scholastic standards established by the council. 'In addition to their interest in the maintenance of scholarship, the council exerts every effort to promote the most cor- dial relations between those organizations over which it has a supervisory interest. The councills concern, however, is not exclusively with the fraternities, for it also seeks to- foster a spirit of University cooperation. i Faculty sponsorship during this year has been successfully shared by Deans Mary Padou Young and L.

Among' the Greeks, the Theta basketball team won the class B intramural basketball tournament. Memorable social events were the "Bonfire Swingll pledge dance held November 12 at Peony Park following the Homecoming bonfire and the spring formal o-n March 11 at the Chermot ballroom.
