A Under the presidency of Rowland Haynes, it be- came evident in the fall of 1936 that the equipment of the University, since 1930 a municipal institu- tion supported largely by taxation, was too inade- quate to meet the need of the six hundred students then registered. The Board of Regents therefore selected a site on Dodge street near Elmwood Pork, on which to erect a new plant. A dramatic highlight of the campaign was the announcement by the Public Works Administration of a grant of S4l4,000 to the University to provide forty-five per cent of the cost of the first new build- ing, which was completed and ready for June, 1938.

For Fu- lwe Genemliom ,fgo!nfLi1fLi5f1f0LIfi0n RowLAND HAYNES The President As president of the University of Omaha, Rowland Haynes has provided the leadership under which the University has made spectacular progress: a new campus, fifty-one acres in size, has been acquired, a million-dollar building has been erected, in one year enrollment has increased over fifty per cent, and the University of Omaha has been admitted to membership in the North Central Association of Secondary Schools and Colleges. Perhaps Mr. Haynes' most noteworthy accomplishment has been his "Life- Time Plan for Education." He states that since the world today is in a confused state of affairs and that since the sum total of human knowledge is large and is always increasing, a person who completes a four-year college course has con- structed only a foundation for future study and should continue his studies throughout life. Thus Mr. Haynes, in an effort to make the University a truly a H eeeaee e geaa :Ev - 21? -,liiil-I p -Y W j Tig, , in 'Y ' Elgin rg FIRESIDE CHAT functional unit in the community and to serve the needs of adults, has enlarged the faculty and increased the number and types of courses offered in the School of Adult Education. Thoroughly democratic and liberal in his methods, Mr. Haynes has long adhered to the policy of inviting faculty advice and cooperation on administrative matters. However, during the past year he has inaugurated a new policy that, in its implications, is well-nigh revolutionary. Since the adults of today were the students of yesterday, and since adults should have a clear understanding of the problems which a graduated student must face, Mr. Haynes has asked for opin- ions from competent business and professional men and women. In addition, realizing that students, more than anyone else, understand not only their prob- lems, but also their hopes and desires, Mr. Haynes has invited representative groups of students to meet with him and offer their advice and opinions on mat- ters of administrative policy. However, no bare recital of facts can properly interpret that which stands out most clearly in Mr. Haynes' dealings with students--his personality. His charm and ease of manner, the depth of his culture, his sympathy and considera- tion for the most trivial of student problems, his sincere desire to serve the young people of this region, and his quick and incisive intelligence are qualities that distinguish Mr. Haynes among his fellows. :l.., 1-21131: 4 .--.weighs . .Q--, -VA ,1 Y ,::, V Y V Y 3 , 3 Bedqar, Byrne, Haugh, Iacobberger Majors, Martin, Murray, Stryker Board of Regents Chairmen . .

HOLT t Dean of the College Dr. Edgar A. Holt, Dean of the College and head of the department of history and government, has attained a distinguished record of scholarly and administrative achievement, culminating in the recent admittance of the Uni- versity of Omaha into the North Central Association of Secondary Schools and Colleges. Transmitting to his students a philosophic integration of the facts of history, Dr. Holt has inspired them with the high quality of his scholarship and his gen- uine love of learning. As Dean of the College, he has worked untiringly to better the status of the University of Omaha. As a result of his labors, the faculty has been enlarged and is recognized by the people of Omaha and by the faculties of neighboring universities to be a superior group of scholars. When Dr. Holt came to the University in 1931, the Library had fewer than eight thousand books on its shelves. Under his guidance as chairman of the Library committee until June, 1938, the Library grew until over fifty thousand volumes were catalogued. Because of its growth, Senators George W. Norris and Edward R. Burke of Nebraska, in March, 1939, designated it as an official deposi- tory for all documents published by the Federal Government.

Peacock blue and steel gray were selected by the founders as the organizations colors, and the lily of the valley was chosen as the group's flower. The small gold question mark pledge pin inspired the new Phi Delt members to present, on October 22, the "Question Mark" pledge dance. Doris jean Nelson, pledge president, was in charge of all arrangements. Chairman of the Christmas formal dance at the Fontenelle Hotel, December 22, was Elizabeth Ann Swanson. Phi Delta Psi is well represented among class officers by Jayne Fee, Fresh- man secretary, and Ruth Hall, secretary-treasurer of the Junior class. Miss Hall is also club representative on and president of the Inter-Sorority Council. The Phi Delt Feathers are Dorothy Jennings, Marian Findley, Marjorie Carlson, Betty Jane Backlund, Elizabeth Ann Swanson, and Clara Williamson, who is also a member of the W.A.A. board. Lystra Thomsen and Elizabeth Ann Swanson were active members of Sigma Pi Phi, educational fraternity. Miss Swanson, a Kappa Mu Lambda member, has participated in Community Playhouse productions as well as those at the University, also outstanding in the dramatics department are Bernice Vanecek, Doris Jean Nelson, and Rita Burton. , -f 5 J-.

The group chose an unusual combination of cerise and silver for their colors, the sweet pea as their flower. Pledges wear a gold horseshoe pin. Members of this organization are prominent for scholastic achievements and extra-curricular activities. "O" club Sweetheart for 1959 is Bette Hughes. In 1938 Pi O's were awarded the Inter-Fraternity Sing banner for the third consecutive year and won first place in the Ma-ie Day Show, Irene Tinkham was crowned Princess Attira IV. Vice-President Ruth Archer, holder of a four year scholarship, is a member of the Student Council. The club is represented on the Inter-Sorority Council by Phyllis Hopkins and Violet DeVaney, vice-presi- dent of the Council. Annalou Jackson acts as vice-president of the Freshmen, Margenne No- land, as secretary-treasurer of the Sophomore class, and Ruth Archer, as Senior vice-president. Besides serving as Pi O president, secretary of the Feathers, and a member of Alpha Kappa Delta, jane Cook is outstanding oil the campus as assistant councilor for the Omaha Camp Fire Girls. Roller-skating parties, sleigh rides, teas, the Thanksgiving pledge dance, and the annual Christmas formal dance kept Pi O's near the head of the parade in social activities this year. -Ee ' , EEET- E Amentle, Archer, Brown, Burkhart, Burnett, Carr, Christensen, Cook Dempster, De XVald, Dustin, Eyer, Eyre, Galloway, Gibson, Goethe, Hasty H Hatfield, Hedelund, Hopkins, Hughes, Jackson, Johnson, Johnston, Kam, lumber Larson, Manville, Noland, Pankratz, Pottorllf, Str-inert, Turner, Urquhart Prerident .

They were Morris Fisher, president, William Osheroff, secretary--treasurer, Joe Greenstone, Max Altshielder, Harold Kort, and Milton Wolsky. Sponsor was Dr. Claude Stimson of the department of economics. At the end of its first year the fraternity stood highest scholastically among its brother organizations. Also at the end of its first school year Beta Tau Kappa received a charter from the University. The following year Dr. Wilfred Payne became co-sponsor with Dr. Stim- son. New members were pledged, among them Macy Baum, later to become the connecting link between the old Beta Tau Kappa and the present group. That year C1933-19345 the fraternity fared well, but during the next year the number of Jewish students in the school, and consequently in the fraternity, began to decline. At the end of the year 1935-36 Macy Baum was Beta Tau Kappa. Attempts were made C1936-371 to revive the organization, but not until May, 1938, was it reorganized. The first semester of 1938-39, BTK was a pledge organization in the Inter-Fraternity Council, and it assumed active membership the second semester. Mr. Harry F. Fore is present sponsor. --Azzzsiz E i if 5 1-ii ia: 2 H -i . .3 Adler, Alperson, Block, Delrogh, Friedrnan . Kaplan, Saferstein, Stein, Wolfson, wVS1I15tE1!1 Preridemf . Secretary-Treamrer .

Since that time many traditions have been established, not the least of which is the annual "Sweetheart Swing" held this year at the Chermot on February 10. At that time Phi Sig dates received bracelets with fraternity letters engraved upon them. Phi Sigs have been prominent in many campus activities this year. Sam Veneziano is "O" club president, Gerald Claudius was a senior Student Council member, and Robert Landstrom was vice-president of the Junior class. Representing the fraternity on the Inter-Fraternity Council are Robert Meyers and Robert Claudius. Capturing championships in his weight in both boxing and wrestling was Arthur Vuylstek. Claude Shoemaker was assistant business manager of the Gateway. The Phi Sigs won the Inter-Fraternity bowling trophy and took first place in the intramural touch-football tournament. The Phi Sig Newr, annual fratern- ity publication, is edited by Leonard Kurtz, Edward Cummings, Walter Peterson, and Arthur Milow. ei?- li. Harker, I. Barker, Butler. R. Claudius, G.

This year has proved to be a "prosperous" one for the Theta's since its membership includes the presidents of three classes: Wade Knapp, senior, Stuart Sadler, junior, and john Knudsen, freshman. Knudsen, who originated the freshman slogan, "Quantities of Quality," has also had leads in both "Post Road" and "Ceiling Zero." Student Council representatives this year included Wade Knapp and Bill Morris. Knapp was also president of the Inter-Fraternity Council, John Munt was the other representative. Under the able leadership of yell leaders Bob Lehmer, Munt, and Bob Buchanan, school spirit has noticeably increased, at least at the football and basketball games. The nautical pledge dance was held in the auditorium November 25. Doc Lawson played for the dinner-dance formal at the Fontenelle hotel on March 10. With the exception of two indoor get-togethers, outdoor parties were the pre- dominant feature of the social program of this year. 5-v 5 H Alley, Bernalzo, Bucllanan, Buclcingliarn, Carter, Cliamberliu, Chambers, f:llI'lStE1'lSQl'l, Combs Covert, Frollardt, Ganlble, Goorl, Grimm, Harris, Hinchcliff, Hughes, Houston Hust n R.

Yesterday when I ran into our bathroom I saw my dog in the manger twell, not exactly a mangerj. Quietly kicking him aside, I went about my business. When I finally left, there was no immediate resumption of activities on the part of the dog, which is beside the point. My act, at first glance, may seem like cruel and inhuman treatment, but I can assure you there are justifications for my attitude. ln the the iirst place, I was in a hurry. In the second place, our dog was a pampered pup and I simply had to show him who was and who was not wearing the pants in our family.

Yesterday while we were laying in bed we thought a big thought indeed. This is it. As long as Europe exists we are going to have European situations. If it ain't Hitler, it's somebody else. All the time people come to us because we are twenty-one years old and col- lege students asking for advice on what to think about the European situation. We think that as long as Europe exists we are going to have European situations. Then last night we thought another big thought. Why not do away with Europe? No more situ- ations or nothing.

Murder, in the cafeteria, pure and unadulter- ated, shook the foundations of the student body. which forthwith protested against such goings on, petitioned the Deans to put a stop to it. The Deans immediately banned all such activity in the cafeteria, sanctioned the deci- sion of the court to apprehend the murderer.

Said suspect lluffbaby, drying his tears and smiling weakly, "I told you all the time l didunt do it . . . " lt was an emotional trial throughout. Puff- bahy had called in his "friend and colleague" Hellady to defend him against the wiles of the shrewd Sockduerr, who gave his usual speech of ilattery to the gullible jury. Hellady called in the village idiot. Terse lllie. VVith almost imbecilic tendencies, the lad declared under heavy grilling that Puffhaby was guilty. F6lgIlA in: surprise, Hellady quickly turned the case over to the jury, when wild-eyed Carolina Green rushed to the front, hissed through her false teeth: "The sniper, he shot him. Hellady done it.

Under cover of blank cartridges exploding' in honor of the l'nion Pacific, he had quietly shot Mr. Dirte, who at the time was preoccu- pied in anticipation of the joy of seeing Shir- ley Temple in "The Little Princess." He was never to experience that joy. Placing his arm in a comradely fashion about Mr. Dirte's Waist, gun-toter Hellady, with his victim, staggered out of the cafeteria and into the library stacks, where he depos- ited his burden. lt was there that Artiste Pull'- baby, blithely making a sketch of the dead corpse, was arrested. Upon being questioned, he asserted he was a realist. Motive for the crime shone in the diamond bracelet Worn by pretty, blond Polly Bugin. "Claytie was always giving me purty things," she admitted. "He said that he hated for me to be slaying away for that tyrant, Mr. For- est." The bracelet, it seemed had been given to Mr. Dirte by his fiancee, who had entreated him to pawn it and buy a clean shirt. Special mention by her newspaper was given to Emptime Nosim, cub reporter who scooped her more celebrated colleagues when the judge, her uncle, loaned her the use of his private phone.

Poe Shade, Stark Horror stalked the stage as the shades of past scribes and poets gath- ered to honor Edgar Allan Poe in an annual celebration of the Murders in the Rue Morgue. Everyone was present except the main char- acter, the Ourang-Outang. A short comedy, "Our Gang Outing," was presented to com- pensate in some measure for the mayor's ordi- nance against allowing the squat gorilla upon the stage. "Though the people of Omaha sel- dom misbehave," his excellency unsmilingly explained, "still they might get ideas." Omission of the main character detracted but slightly from the spice of the play. Shakes- peare's clowns turned summer-salt after sum- mer-salt, and Longfellow jumped red-hot pep- per. The second act featured a dice game among the principals to decide who was to entertain next year. DeQuincey got the bid, deferred his invitation to cooler weather. The climax fell with a crash in the third and last act when Lady Macbeth impudently thumbed her nose at Poe, who modestly claimed he could write circles around her cre- ator. The act was Iinished in darkness. A rowdy, but appreciative audience went away with the feeling that here was a play of depth and mystery. Certainly the author must have experienced much to have written such tragic undertoe into his drama. Critics also gave it a tragic undertoe, even put their whole sole into it.

STUDENT PUBLICATIONS BUSINESS AND FINANCE Lead One Point Up University of Omaha faculty and student circles buzzed with excitement when they learned that chubby Prexy Rowland Haynes' requisition for a new lead pencil was filled out by precise Bursar Looie Crenshaw in less than a week. The unprecedented movement took the ad- ministrative oiiices completely aback, left only a breathless silence.

Grime reporter has since talked only gib- berish, seems only vaguely conscious of pres- ent goings-on. Hot Money Finance Secretary Hoofbitz last week called in treasury books from all campus or- ganizations, including the Boy Scout frater- nity. Grime reporter got on his trail, stalked him about the halls. Mutterings which floated be- hind the harassed secretary's motor activi- ties smacked of the shadow of Hastings: "Cash receipts to balance flowers for ban- quet tea for two dues paid out income tax secretary's book initiation fee farewell to arms debits credits in the hole you know I mean it -" Finally catching the berserk fellow in his oflice, the persistent reporter asked him was he having trouble. Said he in a l1l0l1i9d voice: "No, I am studying for examinations." With that ironic innuendo, he jerked from his stuffed pockets scads of bills and papers, threw them high in the air. Grinning asinine- ly, he carried on a bit of gay repartee with himself. He suddenly became serious, asked the astonished reporter for two cents. Upon being obliged, he immediately offered to match pennies, but the resourceful reporter hastily made his exit after snatching a trial balance from the floor. Example of reports turned in may be seen in the illegible accounts of the Boy Scout fraternity: ASSETS: Cash on hand ................................,,........,.....

Chop Swing Former Git Wee Editor Sooey Jins, re- cently granted a patent on his Versatile Chop- Sticks created during a spare moment of idle- ness, sat in his ash-littered oiiice, fumed at his promoters. Extremely popular in Chinese eating houses here, the Sticks caused considerable pickup in Chop Suey consumption. Users maintain that not only can they be used in the traditional manner of the Old World, but they are blessed with additional talents of modern civilization. The new gastronomical implements are hollow cylinders, with side perforations. Result: slurping of soup becomes an aes- thetic pleasure. All over, simple tunes are be- ing played with help of booklets furnished free with purchase. Automatic vacuum takes care of any stray leper fingers lurking about. On one chop-stick is attached removable toothpick for immediate use after tasty gruel has been eaten, on the other is a unique back-scratcher for further comfort. Final touch is cigarette holder on the remaining end, capped by a tiny ash-tray which mys- teriously disposes of ashes as they accumu- late. Point of dispute between the curly-headed American and his viscous promoters, Sonny- boy .lunge and C. Fooed Huston, had Chop Suey customers in a temporary stew. Money- grabbers Huston and .lunge maintained they could clean up the platter by exporting the handy gadgets to China and points west. Fol- low-up plans would have the Chinese and point-westers grabbing at the idea tooth and nail. Jins objected on grounds that the Orien- tals might convert his invention into instru- ments of war. make bean-shooters with which to mow down invading Japanese. Said he: "I refuse to aid or abet in any way, consciously or unconsciously, any form of militarism, even the R.O.T.C. I am a paci- fist." Roared cowlick-topped Huston: "All right for you, then-I won't let you dust pianos for me any more!" Reporters found it ditiiicult to wrest an intelligible response from wax-eared S. B. Junge, who gibbered inanely, tore at his minute moustache.

Regular inhabitants of the refrigerator, the rollicking rodents coldly stared at their in- quisitor, froze him with a glance. Said Ferdie to the eventually thawed-out reporter, t'We have been after a low-downg cockroach who calls himself Archie, and when we catch him, we are going to curl his legs and have us a cockroach stew." Twitching his nose disdainfully, long- whiskered chum Lelloy aired a number of grievances against management of the cafe- teria: ill they are continually cutting their feet on bits of broken glass smashed by care- less financial secretariesg 121 joyful anticipa- tion turns to deep disappointment when ap- parently luscious insects become wayward cigarette ashesg 437 heartless dishwashers leave nothing but stray smears of salad dress- ing on. the plates. "lt's making an acid of our stomachs," they squeaked. Reason for the silent meditation was a vague premonition in Ferdie's left ear that their hours on this earth were numbered. "We came to college to get an education," he explained. "VVe left our ignorant mammy and pappy and eleven brothers and sisters in the countryg we should be river-rats all our lifes, when we could just as well learn to live like college students. Well, we learnedg but it seems we know too much. That is our sad tail." He dried his tears, went on: "After tonight we will be no moreg but first We have to get Archie for snitching on us, the dirty rat." Strangely enough, his premonition was right, as the persistent reporter dicovered upon his return next day at noon. But wheth- er the Brothers Rat got Archie, and what happened to cause their untimely end, he never knew, He had meat pie for lunch. V W ,, i Compliments of H .
