Tl-IE NEW SCHOOL
While the ideals of a University of Omaha as conceived in 1908 are essentially
the same in 1938, the buildings and equipment have undergone great changes. 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
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-

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
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 OLD SCHOOL
The year 1938 is witnessing the end of one era in the history of the University
of Omaha, for this year is the last to be spent in the group of buildings located at
24th and Pratt streets.
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.

President Rowland P. 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
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
"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

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.

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
To Mrs. Stevens we owe our appreciation for her unselhsh contributions to the
student life of the campus.

EVERETT M. 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
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.

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

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-
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
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.

Much of the constructive effort to which the new University of Omaha is due
has been contributed by the members of this senior class of 1938. 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-

The Alumni association, in keeping pace with the building of the new university,
was completely reorganized at the annual Alumni dinner and election of officers held
at the Chamber of Commerce on june 1, 1937.
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
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.

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.

Twice a year the students and fa.culty of the University of Omaha turn out as a
body to celebrate and perpetuate their Indian traditions. 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-

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.

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
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.

COACH C. L. HARTMAN COACH JOHN BAKER
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.

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

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

Kersenbrock stood out in this game for their running, blocking and p-ass catching,

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

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.

After a fairly successful showing in the 1937 campaign, the Cardinal track team
faced a heavy season this year with a schedule of six meets including the North Cen-
tral contest at Cedar Falls, Iowa.
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 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.

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.
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.

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

Then came the biggest step in evolution: from ping-pong to basketball. A visit

We are especially proud of our archery team, Di, on acco-unt of the rating they re-

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

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

The Pan-Hellenic Council is the governing organization for the Greek societies.
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. M. Bradfield.

pledges, and when two or' more of the brothers get together, Hthat Old Silver Goblet",
sung lustily notifies all strangers that the Phi Sigs are present. This fraternity be-
came the first chartered Greek organization on the University camp-us in 1910.
The members are prominent in all campus activities. Edgar Howe is president
of the Student Council, Edward Dulacki is senior representative, Leonard Kurtz is
junior representative, and Robert Landstrom is sophomore representative. Presidents
of the junior and freshman classes are George Threadgill and Edmund Barker, and
Gerald Claudius is Pan-Hellenic Council representative. The fraternity won the
banner for having the best act on the Ma-ie Day program. Members of the Home-
coming Committee Were Edgar Howe and Edward Dulacki.
The Phi Sig News, an annual fraternity publication is issued by Edmund Barker,
George Threadgill, Bill Foshier and Bob Straka.
Outstanding social events of the chapter were the pledge dance, the f'Big Pump-
kin" held at the Birchwood Club on October 31, and the seventh annual "Sweet Heart
Swing", formal dance at the Chermot ballroom on February 18.

TI-I ETA Pl-II' DELTA
In 1915 a group of the University men of mutual interests established the Theta
Phi Delta fraternity. Purple, white and' gold were selected by the- founders for the
clubls colors and were carried out in the diamond-shaped pledge pin.
Wade Knapp serves as the Pan-Hellenic Council president, James Smith and
Louis Bernabo are Gateway reporters, and Roger Hughes is p-resident of the senior
class, assistant Greek editor of the Tomahawk, and senior representative on the Stu-
dent Council. William Morris is sophomore Student Council representativeg Robert
Lehmer was Camera Club president and ace cheer leader. He and john Munt set a
pace during games that even the closest mouthed spectator could not ignore. Roy
Alley and Austin Vickery swing a mean tongue in debate, while Fran Nelson scorches
the pages of the school paper with caustic comments. 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. Other social affairs included a series of informal hre-
sides at Wilsons cabin and weenie roasts.

endeavored to be a good citi-
zen, has maintained one of
Omaha's largest pay-rolls, has
spent millions of dollars in
taxes and local purchases-
