WOODS Director STUDENT EMPLOYMENT SERVICE Business is not as usual in the Student Employment Service. The task now is to find people to fill jobs rather than jobs for people to fill. Alternating Work-Study jobs have been practically discontinued because of the insistent demand of many employers for students to continue on the job when once placed. ln this first year of operation under war conditions, the Student Employ- ment Service, in addition to its regular placement work with graduates, former students, and students, has found itself suddenly in the midst of a tremendous program of placing students who have completed so-called National Defense courses. Other additions to the Service are the Teachers' Placement Bureau, which formerly operated independently, and the establishment of an in- formation bureau on opportunities for the most effectual use of University students in winning the war, as particularly applied to opportunities for students entering service with the armed forces. J. E. Woods is Director of the Student Employment Service and is assisted by Mrs. Mona Wormhoudt, assistant director. Marian Scott and Marie Johnson demonstrate the right and wrong ways of secretarial practice. E. M. HOSMAN Director SCHOOL OF ADULT EDUCATION Under the directorship of E. M. l-losman, the School of Adult Education has added a number of courses to its curricula, designed especially to aid the war effort. Air Pilot Training lnstitute, a preparatory course for Army Air Pilots, was' instituted in June, l94l. Four units with a total enrollment of approx- imately one hundred students registered for the classes. Two of the units were sponsored by Omaha Elks Lodge, Number Thirty-Nine. A regular course in dietitics for nurses was inaugurated this year. Immanuel l-lospital's Train- ing school affiliated itself with the S.A.E. for work in pre-clinic nurses' courses in science. Notable during the year was the enlarged, expanded, and revitalized activities program for evening students, brought about by Mrs. Betty Mc- Cracken, assistant to the Director. The school's own student council sponsors dances, convocations, and various other activities which afford recreation and enjoyment for the evening students. Other developments include the establishment of a number of short refresher courses for defense workers. SAE students mix business with pleasure. Faculty members in their lower moments-Smith, Young, Fore, Weisskopf . . . Nurse Arnold in- itiates Matthews into the mys- teries of the Health depart- ment-McKerma and Whited look on . . . comfortable coh- terence-Widoe, Sinriett and a couple of Sig Chis.

J ohn Tyrrell Filled with Utopian ideals of a Tomahawk out on time, ye ed worked and worried all first semester on plans for a bigger and better yearbook. Then came the Japs, and Tomahawk blueprints were put in cold storage. "To be or not to be," was the question haunting the staff until second semester registration trickled the necessary number of shekels into the activity fund for a "War-Time" edition. The comparatively elaborate plans of first semester were tossed into the wastebasket and new ones hurriedly assembled. A small but capable staff rolled up its collective sleeves and prepared to do a year's job in a couple of all-too-short months. Ann Borg acted as class editor, and Etta Soiref was in charge of the activity sectionp Fraternity editor was Joe Thornell, and Frances Blanchard, assisted by l-larriet Bihler, handled sorority pages. Administration editor was l-larry Goodbinder, and Ruth Marie Thorup held the position of honors editor. l-lomer Starr was men's sports editor, and the women's sports section was handled by Jackie Leffingwell. June Rose Anderson and Annette Klein, both old-timers at the game of yearbook editing, gave much-valued advice to ye ed. Paul Brehm and Clyde Bourgeois supplied the candids, and Bruce Macalister was in charge of the Tomahawk Varsity Show. John Tyrrell held the position of business manager. GAT EWAY J, Hughes, S.

An "SOS" Gateway was mimeographed to help out the frantic, last-day drive of the Community Chest at the University, and during the first days of the war crisis an hourly bulletin was prepared and posted in the cafeteria. Highlight of the second semester Gateway, edited by capable, blonde Hazel Slenker, was the student strike. Another outstanding story was trust- busting Thurman Arnold's appearance as the Baxter Memorial lecturer. Popular U'N'l column, inaugurated a year ago, reappeared, and a new one, "Phantasmagoria," by "Annie," was introduced. Always the most popular issue of the year with the students, the April Fool's issue, "The Grouse," satirized aspects of the Anti-Haynes student strike, panned faculty and administration.

TOMAHAWK BEAUTY QUEENS A new and different method of choosing the i942 Beauty Queens was inaugurated by the Tomahawk this year. Instead of making the selection from photographs, as has been the custom, three carefully chosen local judges, Miss Marguerite Coady, head of the Coady School for Models, Clark Haas, World-Herald artist, and G. L. Hammer, personnel director of the Martin Bomber plant, met each of the 35 candidates in person. The fourteen chosen by the judges to be presented in formal attire at the Tomahawk Varsity Show on December l6 were Dorothy Jean Cappel, Georganne Dow, Kay Emery, Dot Felton, Jerry Goodwin, Carol Hug, Anno Lou Jackson, Maxine Lancaster, Pat Muirhead, Mary Jean Miles, Ruth Neef, June Stepanek, Jeanne Whited and Lois Young. Judging was done on the basis of beauty, personality and poise. Further elimination was made by the audience at the Varsity Show and the judges chose the three Tomahawk Beauty Queens from the five finalists, Dot Felton, Maxine Lancaster, Kay Emery, Mary Jean Miles, and Dorothy Jean Cappel.

Five undergraduate lettermen were lost to Coach Sed Hartman even before he began his eleventh football season at Omaha, most of them donning army or navy uniforms. These were Bob Brown, Clarence McDermott, Walt Stewart, Gil Schrage and Howard Humphreys. Another, Bob Spellmeyer, was injured in the first game and had to "call it quits" for the year. An even greater load was placed on the "rookies" when "El Chico" Hernandes was drafted in mid-season. For their opener, the lndians journeyed i500 miles to Huntington, West Virginia, where they were overpowered by Marshall, one of the strongest small-college teams in the country, 62-6, on September 20. Ushering in a rain-ridden home season at re-sodded Benson Stadium, October 4, Omaha tied ldaho Southern, 0-0. A crowd of 2,000 was present before rain and hail sent them scurrying early in the second quarter. Under almost identical weather conditions the following Saturday, the improving Warriors downed South Dakota State, l2-0. The lndians shut out their opponents for the third straight time in trouncing Simpson, 20-0, at lndianola, Iowa, October ll. Although Omaha outgained and out-downed North Dakota State at Fargo the next week-end, they were outscored by the Bison, l3-6. Four seniors: Blinn, Dankof, Hodak, Matthews With bandleader Artie Shaw on hand to grace the Homecoming cere- monies, the gridders nosed out Morningside, 7-6, October 25. This gave Coach Hartman a record ot tive wins, three ties and three losses in Homecoming games since taking over the "Cardinals," as the teams were formerly called. In a virtual "aerial" battle, the Indians' passing was better than South Dakota U.'s in all respects except score-producing, accordingly, Omaha wound up on the short end ot a Z8-7 count at Vermillion, November 8. The final game SGW the Indians drop a 34-I3 decision to conference champions Iowa Teachers at Cedar Falls, November IS. The l94l season was the last for seniors Tom Blinn, Karl Dankot, Frank Hodak and Bob Matthews. "Matty" was easily the lndians', it not the whole conterence's, standout. He scored 47 of the team's 7l points, being the "big gun" in running, passing, kicking extra points, and backing up the line, as well as in punting, in which department he was without a peer throughout the season. Len Graham, Alan Kidd, Dee Mc- Cartney, Don Wiles, Darrell Matt- son, Bob Dymacek, Murray Kitner, Bob Shrum, Clarence Smith, Frank Catania, Bill Pangle, Jim Oglesby, Bob Moran, and Roger Boulden will stand a good chance for all-con- terence center. Scrimmage on the new sod field. i. Qu... BASKETBALL Coach Baller, Taylor, Alter, Boulden, Fay, Vachal, Gunderson McCartney, Dutcher, Matthews, Claussen, Graham, Rinehart Two long five-game trips, reaching into both Mexico and Canada cmd playing against the best college teams in the country, featured Coach Stu Baller's fourth cage season at Omaha. The Indians won six out of eight home tilts, seven of which were played at the city auditorium, a new site for University games. The season's finale was played at Creighton, Omaha trimming South Dakota State to cinch fifth spot in the conference with three wins, five losses. Only seven men were on the squad for the last seven games, the air-corps being the main factor in the player-exodus. The way the seven remaining players responded to their greatly increased responsibilities earned for them the admiration of the entire city, especially as they were playing a schedule that had been planned for o larger and stronger squad, which existed only until the end ofthe first semester. Seniors Walt Vachal and Bob Matthews looked best for the Indians. Matthews, who captained the team, was named all-conference guard for the second straight year, and set new season and conference scoring records for an Omaha player, 240 and lO2 points, respectively. lLeftl -Walt Vacha . . . sma I Il, but fast and t gh T lRightJ - "Matty" . . . towered above all opp Game results for the season: OMAHA 40 ........ 30 .... 26 .... 3l .... 20 .... 40 .... 26 .... 36 .... 29 .... 35 .... 56 .....

Outstanding in relays were Dick Beal, Bob Matthews, Clarence Smith, Gil Schrage, and Bob Spellmeyer. Sprinters were Beal, Matthews, and Don Pflasterer. Smith ran the quarter-mile, Schrage and Spellmeyer were top hurlers. ln field events, Matthews looked best in pole vault, Dan l-luston, in high jump, and Roger Boulden, l-lux Bachman, Francis l-lernandes, and Tom Blinn, in weights.

The momentum of W.A.A. activities in this fun-packed year was increased soon after with the invitation play day, given for the Omaha and Council Bluffs high school girls. Then came the initiation, using a pirate ship as a theme. World-Herald photographer Longevin was on hand to pictorially record the "plank" walk- ing, "rigging" climbing, "sea-horse" riding of the blindfolded pledges, with the result that certain pledges found themselves featured in the roto section of the World-l-lerald and in College Humor magazine. Among other fall activities was the annual hockey-soccer play-off, which was followed by an informal dinner. Alice Marble, former tennis star, was the guest of W.A.A. at their Christ- mas porty. Miss Marble is now the notional head of the Women's Division of Physical Fitness program. When time rolled around for the annual benefit bridge party, W.A.A.'ers went to work to raise money for the trip to the National Convention ot Wellesley College, Boston, Massachusetts. The trip had added zest because of side trips to Washington, D. C., New York City, Niagara Falls, and even a bit of Canada. The events of the year were climaxed by a formal banquet at which re- ports of the convention and other tid-bits of the trip were discussed. Initiation pictures featured in College Humor. Officers for the year were Ann Borg, president, Betty Bennett, vice- president, Ellen Jacobus, secretary, and Vivian Fell, treasurer. Other Board members were June Rose Anderson, publicity, Mary Louise Gronewold, art, Edith Ahlbeck, intramurals, Betty Bennett, programs, Jacqueline Leffingwell, play day, Etta Soiref, social chairman, Marie Tesar, golf, Alice Ovington, orchery, Lucile Jenkins, orchesis, Barbara Glotfelty, hiking, Dorothy Rice, volleyball, Margaret Moon, tennis and ping pong, and Louise Carter, soccer and baseball.

Sig Chis held the lead in most intramural tour- naments, with Pi O's trailing in second place. Gam-A mas led in the intramural table tennis tournament, with Kappas coming in second. Sisters met in the finals of the individual table tennis tournament when Adele and Alice Egner tried tor the champion- ship. For the second year. AdeIe's unorthodox grip but steady hand netted her the title of champion. The Egners also dominated the tennis intramurals. Marian Rapp and Georgialee Hansen led in the golf tournament. Besides the intramural program under the direc- tion ot Miss Marian McLaren, a great variety of sports was open to students through class work, including archery, badminton, folk dancing, mod- ern dancing, hockey, body mechanics, ping pong, soft ball, skiing, soccer, ice skating, hiking, tum- bling, tennis, and swimming. Intramural representatives were Mary Heumann, Gamma, Edith Ahlbeck, Kappa, Louise Carter, Pi O, Dorothy Rice, Phi Delt, Doris Fleming, Indepen- dent, and Helen Schmidt and Dorothy Brazee, Sig Chi. Folk dancing hit a new high under Miss Ruth Diamond. The advanced group was invited to dance at numerous gatherings, a few of which were at Waterloo, Nebraska, Joslyn Memorial, and Fort Crook. Omaha University hockey and folk dancing en- thusiasm spread trom coast to coast through pic- tures in the Collegiate Digest and Co-Ed magazine. ORCHESIS Two dance concerts were presented at the Joslyn this year. Miss Diamond's dance group was asked to do a repeat performance of their concert last spring as the University's contribution to the Fine Arts Festival at the Joslyn. Included in this concert were "The Peasant Can- tata," "The News Daily," which portrayed scenes from a newspaper office, and "Dedication to the University," which depicted the ten years' growth of the University. An outstanding number was the one entitled "Leadership of Men" in which dicta- torship and democracy were contrasted. The dance concert presented this spring was built around the symbolisms from each ofthe three religions which have the greatest following in the United States today. This concert was the expression in dance move- ment of various forms of religious worship, such as Jewish, Catholic, and Protestant, in a democracy. The interpretation of each religion was given so that each person in the audience could recognize his individual faith. Featured in these symbolic movements was the lighting of the Sabbath can- dles, representative of the Jewish religion, the pat- tern of the Rosary for Catholicism, and the Lord's Prayer for Protestantism. As a concluding number the three religions were shown working together as is possible in a democ- racy. The dance group with the University Choir pre- sented the Christmas convocation. They also as- sisted Miss Diamond with dance demonstrations in her lectures for the I-lumanities. WAAnderings Mount Vernon . . . everybody out. . , New Yorlds Central Park . . .

Christensen, Crowley, Lake, Verity, Arms "lt's fun to be a Phi Delt" would seem to be an appropriate motto for this sorority after a g'ance at their activities this year.

Cleverly planned was the pledge dance, the "Reconstruction Ramble." A Christmas dinner dance at the Castle Hotel, a Chinese dinner at the Women's Club, a steak fry with the Phi Sigs, and the annual formal dance at the Chermot, followed by a midnight supper, kept Phi Delts' date books filled.
