THOMPSON Rule 6: " All seniors and all students with spe- cial problems must have the signature of the Dean before payment of fees. " And we all have special problems! Specialist at problems is Dr. W. H. Thompson, Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences appointed in July, 1942. In fact, maintains Dean Thompson, " my chief hobby is studying the disabilities of children, and know- ing and liking people. " This interest led to the development in 1937 of the Child Study Service, which is carried on at the University in conjunc- tion with the Omaha public schools. The Service is nationally known. An Omaha alum, class of ' 17, Dr. Thompson also reigns as the Head of the Department of Philosophy and Psychology. Dr. Thompson, encouraged by Daniel Jenkins, founder of the University, majored in psychology and received his doctor ' s degree from Ohio State University. Deeply interested in the advancement of education, he wrote one of his early papers on " The Reading Disabilities of College Students. " This was among the preliminary studies that gave impetus to remedial reading in colleges. After teaching at Ohio State and the Univer- sity of Nebraska, Dean Thompson returned to the University of Omaha as Head of the Depart- ment of Philosophy and Psychology. During the time when Dr. Thompson was serv- ing as Dean of Men, he and the Student Council visited the tribe of Omaha Indians, studied their history and customs, and built around their tradi- tions our University theme. The Ma-ie Day festi- val is patterned after an actual Indian celebra- tion. Dr. Thompson has kept an active interest in the fortunes of the University and is positive in his opinion that no school in the United States can offer more to a student in the way of scholar- ship and individual attention from the faculty. Another booster of the Muni Uni, and one who helps offer the courses which make the Univer- sity outstanding in the war effort, is the Dean of the College of Applied Arts and Sciences, Carl W. Helmstadter, fisherman par excellance. Dean Helmstadter came to the University in 1929 as an instructor in the old College of Com- merce which was then located at 1 307 Farnam DR. CARL W. HELMSTADTER 6 Street. In 1930 he was appointed Registrar and Business Instructor. Six years later, in 1936, he was selected as Assistant Dean of the College, and continued as Registrar and Business Instruc- tor until the College of Applied Arts was estab- ■ lished. The College, created in 1941, supervises the four-year program leading to the Bachelor of Science degrees in Business Administration, in Business and Engineering Administration, in Ed- ucation, and in Nursing, as well as the two-year Associate Title programs in Accounting, Aero- nautical Engineering, Drafting or Mechanics, Education, Engineering, Home Economics, Jour- nalism, Marketing, Assistant to Physicians and Dentists, Recreational Leadership, and Secre- tarial Practice. Many classes of special service to the country, both to war industries and to the armed forces, have been established and continued in opera- tion. The University has been giving Engineering Science and Management War Training Courses especially designed to train personnel for war in- dustry. Some of the outstanding courses were Aircraft Materials and Parts Inspection, Funda- mentals of Radio, Production Planning, Safety Engineering, Hydraulics, Stress Analysis, Draft- ing, Advanced Inspection, and Tool and Die Engineering. The College has promoted the Civilian Pilot Training since 1939 and has trained over 400 pilots to date. The college contains an engineering curricu- lum accepted by the Navy Reservists, while con- tinuing the regular university engineering pro- gram. The department of education has main- tained its place of importance in training teach- ers, and the home economics and journalism de- partments are growing normally. The man who has shouldered all the problems of adjusting the school to war needs is President Rowland Haynes. Buffer-like between Uncle Sammy and the men students, the work of our Prexy is merely a repeat of activities of the last war. During War I he acted as Director of War Camp-Community Service, in charge of off-duty time of Army and Navy men passing through New York. Through his college work at Williams where he received his A.B., Clark where he obtained his Master ' s, and graduate work at Columbia, Presi- dent Haynes gained a clear insight into the prob- lems of the average college. Coupled with his work among people of college age in the relief programs, state and national, he came to the PRESIDENT ROWLAND HAYNES University of Omaha well qualified to be the chief boss. With " the door is always open to my students " philosophy. Phi Beta Kappa Haynes guided the University through the perilous adjustment re- quired for survival. The following five point pro- gram has been put into effect: 1 . Colleges were asked to re-arrange schedules so that men could get as much college work as possible before leaving for the Armed Forces. The University responded with the speed-up courses from January to March, March to May. Omaha has put in the three-semester schedule, including a full semester in the summer. Men are permitted to earn complete or partial credits. 2. Directives from the Armed Services about student requirements change frequently. Omaha University set up a special Military Information Service in order that University men might have correct information week by week. 3. The University of Omaha was the first institution in Nebraska to have its courses ap- proved for these programs. 4. Omaha has adopted the Yale Program for women students and expanded its nurse train- ing program. 5. Special facilities were made available for CPT training for both Army and Navy men. Nearly 900 persons were trained for work in war industries of the United States Office of Educa- tion.

Heading these was the inauguration of the Bond Booth in an exten- sive drive to promote the sale of bonds and stamps. Sponsorship of the practice air-raid drills at the University was also undertaken this year and the past semester saw the expenditure of the surplus money in the activity fee reserve fund for a permanent Honor Roll Board to members of the University now serving in the armed forces. The Student Council again planned a success- ful Homecoming celebration, conducted elections of student officers, approved students for Who ' s Who list, and carried out the annual Ma-ie Day activities. Several members of the Council have resigned during the past year to enter the armed forces or medical school. One of these was Bob Spell- meyer, who had served as president of the Coun- cil for a year and half. Dave Button, sophomore, was called to the army, and Byron Oberst, junior, entered medical school. Officers elected by the Council were Dick Bur- ress, president; Shirley Buchanan, vice-president; and Phyll Iverson, secretary. Representatives elected by their classes are Marian Ganaros, Hazel McConnell, Orville Mc- New, and William Eller, freshmen; Marilyn Davis, Marion Palmquist, Robert Wallin, and Bob Chenoweth, sophomores; Shirley Buchanan, Phyll Iverson, Dick Burress, and Doug Lindsey, juniors; Barbara Finlayson, Diana Hoogstraat, Ronnie Peterson, and Clarence Smith, seniors. 12 Our ootl?ail team . . . just al?ovit tLree tons oj l?ee Coach Sed Hartman ' s twelfth football season at the University of Omaha was characterized by the " don ' t give up the ship " attitude shown by the coach and the players. Although they en- countered a fresh calamity almost every week, the 1942 Indians played with a fortitude that was a credit to themselves and their school. More than forty prospective gridders checked out uniforms the first week of practice, but the squad as a whole was even lighter and less ex- perienced than was the 1941 crew. Only two regulars and four reserves were among the rookies, the other lettermen being lost through graduation, draft or enlistment in the armed forces. Seven players were from the 1941 freshman squad. A dozen were freshmen, eligible for var- sity competition under the North Central Con- ference ' s special war-time ruling. Royce Brown, one of Omaha ' s all-time ath- letic greats, returned to his alma mater as as- sistant coach, but was on hand for only a month and a half before he left for the navy. He was replaced by " Howie " Waterman, another alum- nus, who was a regular at center and fullback between 1938 and 1940. First major disaster to strike the squad came before the first game when Bob Spellmeyer re- peated his 1941 performance and again broke his collarbone. " Spell " had been slated to be a regu- lar both years. Roger Boulden, one of the two returning start- ers, became the victim of the next calamity when he broke his arm in the Simpson game. Both Boulden and Spellmeyer were kept out of action for the season. It appeared that this might have been the year for " Rog " to make the all-confer- ence team. This was also the last seoson for three other Indian seniors: Leonard Graham, who transferred to Omaha from Graceland in 1941 and was a regular at either end or tackle both years here; Waterman, asst. coach; R. Kalcsky, Zemunski, Preuss, B. Swanson, Foreman, Hazen, Bowlin, B. Cook, Wall, D. Peterson, J. Roth, Hartman, coach Spellmeyer, Olmstead, Lawry, Lynch, W. Peterson, Weekes, Burress, McCawley, Campbell, Haffke G. Akromis, Moron, Dymacek, Smith, Graham, Boulden, Oglesby, Pangle, Orr 13 Bill Pangle, a light but hard-driving ball carrier; and Clarence Smith, who surprised fans with his stellar defensive work at end, to which position he shifted after an easy season in 1941 when he served as an understudy to the " iron man " half- back. Bob Matthews. There will be virtually no carry-over for next fall, as many of the boys are al ready in the armed forces and others will follow them. A driving rain and a machine-gun passing at- tack confronted the Indians when they met the South Dakota State Jackrabbits at Brookings Oc- tober 3. The Omaha defense stiffened and held the Sodaks scoreless in the second half but the heavier Jackrabbits had already racked up the twenty points that was their margin of victory. Freshman Bill McCawley sent the Indians ' stock rocketing upward with his flashy running in the Simpson game. He looked like two million Olmstead, Graham, Oglesby Boulden, W. Petersen, Roth dollars in scoring a pair of touchdowns, but this sizzler was not permitted to compete in confer- ence games because of a professional basketball contract he once signed. Ernie Weekes lugged the ball on Omaha ' s third touchdown play in this game, the Indians winding up with a 19-0 win. The adoption of Augustana college into the conference last year proved to be a bad stroke of business for Omaha, as the Vikings downed the Indians 32-0 in Omaha on October 16. Augus- tana went on undefeated in conference play and tied for the championship. A giant Bradley Tech outfit overran the In- dians 46-6 in Peoria October 24. The Braves had everything their way during the first half, but Omaha came back fighting in the last half, hold- ing Bradley scoreless while pushing over six points themselves. 14 The next Saturday found the Indians pitted against another opponent that enjoyed a heavy weight advantage. Playing in Sioux City, Oma- ha ' s warriors were mauled to a 49-13 setback even though they drew first blood when Oglesby ' s pass to Graham clicked. Late in the game, the Indians broke through again on passes: Roth flipped a forward to Don Peterson, who lateraled to Bowlin for the marker. A Panther powerhouse, successfully seeking a third straight conference championship for Iowa State Teachers ' College, swept over the Indians 48-0 in the season ' s wind-up at Benson stadium November 14. Hazen intercepted a Panther pass in the third quarter to set up the Indians ' only threat. Oglesby ' s toss to Pangle was good, and Pangle dodged and squirmed through most of the Iowa team before he was downed on the Pan- thers ' fifteen. Two Indians received honorable mention in the all-conference selections: Len Graham as a blocking and defensive end, and Bob Hazen as a linebacker.

The reigning Homecoming Princess is a member of Gamma Sigma Omicron sorority, treasurer of Feathers, secretary of the Women ' s Athletic Association, and belongs to Sigma Pi Phi. Toastmaster of the banquet was Dr. Dayton Heckman, and the speakers were Mr. W. Dale Clark representing the regents, President Row- land Haynes representing the administration, Mr. Herbert Fischer representing the alumni, and Miss Phyll Iverson representing the students of the University. Half-time arrangements were elaborate. CO- COFABAS Phyll Iverson and Shirley Buchanan (co-chairmen of committee on football and bas- ketball activities) presented the three marines who were guests of honor. The marines raised the flag while the band played. Lights were turned off, an " O " of red flares appeared, and when the lights came on again, the Princess, ac- companied by her attendants, circled the field in a car.

They wound up undefeated in the double round robin in softball, and climaxed the season by re- peating in table tennis. Darrel Clemmer captained his mates in the most prosperous intramural season any Barb team has known. Formerly, the Independents were split into five groups, and under this system didn ' t fare so well. This year, with so many stu- dents being called to the services, and many others holding jobs, student intramurals directors Hank Moberg and Ben Miller decided to hove four strong teams, rather than three strong and five weak ones. Consistent strong performers for the Barbs were Al Ringhofer, Ben Miller, Marvin Gerber, Erwin Lowery, Harold Hamilton, Harvey Sopot, and, of course, Clemmer. Phi Sig finished the softboll schedule in sec- ond place, with three victories and three defeats, but wound up in the cellar in table tennis, losing all six matches. Neole Peterson, captain, Don Ostrond, Dale Heinbuch, Wayne Bremer, and Bruce Lefholtz were the standouts for the Phi Sigs. Captain Fred Holmstrom, Lynn Neafus, Roger Lindblom, Honk Moberg, Jack Carter, and Ron- nie Seastedt were the chief cogs in the Theto machine. With Neafus and Moberg chucking, the Greeks were able to push the Independents considerably in softball, but weren ' t able to win more than three table tennis matches out of six. Alpha Sigma Lambda, who was " just the other frat " in soft boll, surprise the other contestants in table tennis and placed second in the final standings with four wins and two losses, both losses being administered by the Barbs. Captain Allen Peterson, Cal Olson, Earl Rinehart, Wil- liam Beebe, and Allen Scoville were the main- stays of the fraternity. Final standings: SOFTBALL W 1. Independents 6 2. Phi Sig 3 3. Theto 3 4.

Highlight of the event was a style show featuring " duration " clothes. Marilyn Davis was commentator. At the close of the fashion show President Dorothy Rice introduced Miss Marian McLaren, sponsor, and the other officers and board members. Dottie and " Miss Miss " poured. Before and after the show there was dancing to records, men looking in wistfully through the doors but being forcibly barred. Informal initiation of new members was " join- the WAAcs, " and the theme was carried out from " shots in the arm " through running an ob- stacle course to a " G. I. haircut, " victims being blindfolded all the while. After these rigors the initiates were formally pledged at a candle-light ceremony and then presented with a sucker with which to soothe themselves. Officers are Dorothy Rice, president; Mary Louise Gronewold, vice-president; Mary Neu- mann, secretary; and June Rose Anderson, trea- surer. The Board members, in addition to the of- ficers, are Annette Klein, Phyll Iverson, Mildred Cunningham, Gerry Dallinger, Vivian Fell, Bobra Suiter, Doris Osborne, Adele Pangle, Betty Ross, Gwen Lindevall, and Raedene Pegden. Playdays, first initiated in the fall of 1940, were continued this fall, but with improvements. Aside from the playday given for the high school girls of Omaha and Council Bluffs, this year a playday was given for WAA members. This play- day included games of soccer-baseball and vol- Alley, Pospichal, Gordon, Kruse, Peterson, Pegden, Johnson, Osborn, Shaplond, Beotty, B. Dallinger, G.

After the games dinner was eaten in the clubroom. Little volley-ball tallies were used as favors. The " regular " playday for the high school girls was, as usual, given on a Saturday. The sev- enty girls attending were divided into teams titled with the names of prominent girls ' colleges. The teams then participated in a round rob ' n tournament, playing hockey, soccer, volley-ball, and archery. Following the games a variety show was given by the WAAers and then lunch was served in the University cafeteria. WAA sponsors the intramurals program for girls and this year arranged a soccer-baseball tournament, a volley-ball tournament, a ping pong tournament, and a badminton tournament. Sororities and Independents compete for a trophy. Another annual activity was the Christmas party, with the traditional folk dances and ex- change of gifts. Guest of honor was Lt. Harvey of the WAAC. The " Snowball Fling " was cli- maxed, not with snowballs, but with popcorn balls. At the end of the fall semester Miss McLaren, sponsor, left to get married, and the new WAA sponsor is Mrs. Doris Lyman. WAA participated in the University ' s bond drive by investing the greater part of its building fund in war bonds. Innovation this spring was the carnival pre- sented by WAA. Complete with merry-go-round and tunnel of love, the carnival raised money for activities during the rest of the year and next fall. Fall playday — archery . . .

Seniors chosen were Paul Beck, Mary Heu- mann, Diana Hoogstraat, Marian Peck, Bob Perelman, Dorothy Rice, Earl Rinehart, Clarence Smith, Homer Starr, and Bill Zimmer. Juniors nominated were Mildred Cunningham, Roberta Green, Phyll Iverson, Annette Klein, Douglas Lindsey, and Byron Oberst. Bob Spellmeyer, June Rose Anderson, Barbara Finlayson, and Roger Boulden, seniors, were elected for a second year. Beginning with a mammoth convocation, the Student Council sponsored a bond drive to reach the goal of $2,000 set for the University stu- dents. A " stamp booth " was opened at the en- trance to the cafeteria, and Greek and Indepen- dent organizations competed in a bond-and- stamp-seiling contest. Phi Sigma Phi fraternity won. The University was awarded an " M " flag by the Treasury in recognition of the faculty ' s 100 per cent participation in the payroll bond-buying program. It is believed that the University of Omaha is one of the few colleges and universities in the United States participating so completely in the bond-buying program.

When they leave, the proportion will show the effects of the Army, Navy and Marine Reserves. While they were here, though, the frosh showed a spirit of unusual ability and talent, rather than the cus- tomary pseudo-sophistication of the usual green- horn. The fall election went all Greek. Roger Lind- blom, Spellmeyer the second, was elected presi- dent. Pauline Darby, vice - president, Maxine Paulson, secretary - treasurer, proved good stooges for the inactive administration. Most active of the freshman foremen were the Student Council representatives: Walt Graham, Nell Evans, Hazel McConnell, Bill Eller, Orville Mc- New, Marian Ganaros. The traditional skull cap rule was rigidly en- forced during the fall season. The first snow was a mere flurry, so the " 0 " Club tyrants forced the yearlings to wear their caps till Homecoming, Oc- tober 1 5. A few of the ardent chaps wore them even afer Homecoming — all of which goes to show that they really are a serious lot. Eventually the elite athletes put the deadline at November 1 3. Then the heads were bared — forcibly. Board meetings greeted the tender-heads who still wore caps. On the sports side of the ledger, the frosh came through as the life-saving guardians of the University. The quintet from South came through in fine style till the end of the semester and the Dean. In football, Kenny Bowlin, Bill Cook, Harry Kalasky, Anton Lawry, Jack Roth, Bob Thomas, Leonard Walla helped keep the Hartmenites from total demolition. Kalasky deserved a medal for his yeomanlike replacement of Rog Boulden at center. When it came to basketball, the frosh were again well represented. Lawry, one of the out- standing forwards in the conference, was barred at the close of the semester. Dan Akromis and Jack Roth saw considerable service as the two main replacements from the side. The Green-horns proved their versatility when they virtually took over the student publication, the GAEEWAY. Enterprising writers from the de- partment of journalism were: Dorothy Dever- eaux.

At this halfway point through their college life, the sophs continued to hold a prominent position on the campus. At election time, withstanding the terrific Greek barrage, John Foley was one of the " Barbs " elected to a student office when he was named president of the class of ' 45. Eleanor Mann, Sig Chi, was elected vice-president, Betty Earp, Kappa, secretary-treasurer. The class was represented on the Student Council by David Button, Bob Wallin, Bob Chenoweth, Marion Palmquist, and Marilyn Davis. Two of the livelier of the class were Hazel Mc- Connell and Don Erickson who acted as cheer- leaders at all athletic events. Don was elected head cheerleader. Turning to sports, the sophs ran a close second to those over-powering frosh. With determina- tion in their eyes, the sophomores copped lead- ing spots on the football and basketball teams. Bob Hazen, Ernie Weekes, Keith Olmstead, Chuck Lynch, and Wayne Peterson starred on the sod. Hazen held many an attack from his posi- tion on the line. Weekes started late but hit the varsity line-up almost as soon as he donned the moleskins. His line plunging was one of the high- lights of the team. Peterson, Lynch and Olmstead all proved to be valuable in their offensive play. Olmstead ' s days were numbered, though, and he left Omaha U. at the last of the fall semester to serve in the Coast Guard. On the basketball court the class of ' 45 didn ' t have so many men, but the outstanding two, Ben Miller and Bob " Chalk " Cain, made up in bril- liance what the class lacked in numbers. The size of Miller made little difference when he replaced taller men; his speed on foot made many an op- ponent shudder. " Chalk " Cain was scheduled to become an all-conference star, but was stymied when the Air Corps beckoned. While he played, though, " Chalk " aided and abetted numerous successful campaigns for the over-throw of in- vading teams. The students publications also came up for sophomore aid. Roy Valentine, Ben Miller, and Bob Corson all helped out the cause. Valentine and Corson left the second semester while Miller has been allowed to remain until July. All three have served as both make-up editors and editors- in-chief of the GATEWAY. Ruth Neef, Pi 0, and Hazel McConnell, Pi 0, first place winner, were class representatives in the 1943 TOMAHAWK Beauty Contest. tlie 24 THIRD ROW; Dowling, Erickson, Arms, Chenoweth, Gibbs SECOND ROW: Brownell, Fisher, Bleich, Edelmarn, Corson FIRST ROW: Bakkerud, Brown, Bailey, Dollmger THIRD ROW: Seastedt, Nepomnick, Wallin, Soland, Novak SECOND ROW: Johnson, Olson, Jen- kins, Simon, Campbell, Knight FIRST ROW: Shirck, Miles, Rapp, Pegden, Patterson THIRD ROW: Lynch, A, Scoville, J.

Perhaps it was because so many seniors were studying hard to finish ahead of Uncle Sammy, but the juniors like to think it was because of their outstanding leader- ship. Dick Burress acted as president of the relative- ly socially inactive class, while Annette Deibel maintained the post of vice-president, aided and abetted by Jane Griffith, secretary-treasurer. Doubling up, Burress acted as president of the Student Council as well as president of Theta Phi Delta. He succeeded Byron Oberst in the frat post. Other juniors heading their respective or- ganizations were: Jane Griffith, Sigma Pi Phi; Charles Rockey, Sigma Tau Delta; Maxine Ylander, Gamma Sigma Omicron; Betty Jane Bowler, Kappa Psi Delta; Roberta Green, Pi Omega Pi; Jean Pratt, Sigma Chi Omicron; Phyll Iverson, Independents. Student Council representatives were: Shirley Buchanan, Phyll Iverson, Dick Burress, Byron Oberst, and Douglas Lindsey. Buchanan served as vice-president while Iverson maintained the secretaryship. Student publications, commandeered by the underclass green-horns, left only two positions open to upperclassmen : the Board of Student Publications was handled by one junior, Roberta Green and one senior, Bill Zimmer. The TOMA- HAWK staff was, with few exceptions, all junior class. The editor-in-chief, Annette Klein, was aided by Shirley Buchanan and Phyll Iverson as associate editors. The most important feature of the ' 43 yearbook was that it broke an eight-year tradition when it came out on time. Eight juniors nominated for inclusion in the 1942-43 edition of Who ' s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges were Mil- dred Cunningham, Roberta Green, Phyll Iverson, Annette Klein, Douglas Lindsey, Byron Oberst, and Marian Peck. Juniors on the football team were few but dynamic and important. Jim Oglesby, Bob Mo- ran, Bob Dymacek and Dick Burress were the junior class moleskin authorities. Oglesby and Moron played the backfield, while Dymacek played line along with guard-Burress. Jane Griffith, Sig Chi, Mary Ellen Mahoney, Phi Delt, and Bobro Suiter, Independent, were entrants in the TOMAHAWK Beauty Contest. Douglas Lindsey, relatively busy this years as business manager of Student Publications, com- manded one of the " strain, stretch and groan " companies in the new stepped-up phys-ed pro- gram. Lyie Noble was another junior who helped figure out the building-up exercises the univer- sity men went through this year. Alfred Eggers served as head of the crack squad. Altogether, the juniors proved a versatile out- fit by not only controlling all the leading posi- tions in the University organizations, but even holding positions outside of school on top of split- ting ranks in the accelerated program. A great percentage of the class of ' 44, along with the class of ' 43, will receive their last TOMAHAWK this spring and will finish work on their degrees at the end of the fall semester in January. 26 uatin ea ' lij oin to Summer icLool THIRD ROW: Nelsen, J.

Approxi- mately seven hundred students are now enrolled in evening classes. Most important of the classes offered by the School of Adult Education are those given in cooperation with the government. Among these have been the air pilot training institutes, in which three hundred men have been trained. Math, science, and engineering courses have also been very popular this year. Added to the usual courses has been the pre- ciinic training center for nurses offered in con- junction with the Immanuel, Methodist, and Jennie Edmundson (Council Bluffs) hospitals. Other new activities this year have been the initiation of an insurance program in cooperation with the national association of insurance men and the new down-town Language Clinic. The Clinic offers courses in eight contemporary lan- guages, particularly those of countries in which we are intimately interested either as foes or allies. Activities of students in the School of Adult Education have been headed this year by presi- dent Gordon Wainwright, vice-president Carolyn Goddard, secretary-treasurer Mary Brown, and activities chairman Margaret Harrison of the Ex- tension Council. Chief social activity was the supper-dance held January 27 at the Blackstone hotel. Director of the School is Mr. E. M. Hosman. He is also chairman of the Committee on Graduate Studies, established this year, a member of the executive committee of the state Victory speak- ers, and chairman of the Baxter Memorial Lec- ture committee.

In the fall the council set up rushing rules and provided for the registration of girls interested in belonging to a sorority. The annual Christmas tea dance, given with the Home Economics department, was held on December 16. The feature attraction of the event was a fashion show in which the girls mod- eled ensembles of their own making. Highlight of the holiday season was the " Par- thenon Prom " which the council gave in coopera- tion with the Inter-Fraternity council. This all- Greek dance was held at the Chermot ballroom, December 29. The Inter-Fraternity council headed the scrap drive in which the Greek organizations took part.

It was an in- formal affair with all those attending being in sports attire. The University auditorium, scene of the dance, was decorated with lanterns, sad- dles, and blankets to carry out the title. Oldest sorority on the campus, Sig Chi initiated ten pledges at an impressive formal ceremony at the Blackstone Hotel. A tea followed the initia- tion.

Akromis i5 Qoma iwe It couldn ' t happen two years in a row — but it did! Again the Indians lost a group of cagers at midseason to army, navy, et al. The good start that Coach Sed Hartman ' s basketball team made went up in smoke after Anton Lawry and Dan Akromis, two first-stringers, had to check in their suits. Later, Bob Cain was called by the air corps. Lynn Neafus, Theta ' s intramural star, filled in the gap left by Akromis, and led team scoring against South Dakota University with seventeen points. 40 Lawry, Boulden, Graham The cagers looked unbeatable in their first four games, beating Fort Crook, Motor Trans- port, Midland, and Dana by wide margins. Aug- ustana was the " Waterloo, " however, and this set-back started the Indians on the downward path by handing them a 50-43 defeat in Omaha. Lawry, who had made twenty-one points against Midland, fouled out in the third period and was badly missed. Captain Earl Rinehart Earl Rinehart, senior guard, was team captain. Two other seniors, Leonard Graham and Roger Boulden, both veterans of last year, were also mainstays for the Indians.

Kap- pa Mu Lambda, initiated its new members in January at a party given together with the alums. Those initiated include Elizabeth Drishaus, John Foley, Virginia Heidkamp, Mary Neumann, and Marion Rapp. With a view to the future and the part that they will play in the post-war world, students in the social science departments reorganized the International Relations Club after a semester of inactivity. " Reconstruction in the Far East " was the topic discussed informally by the members during the year. Individual members led the panel discus- sions which followed each meeting. The local club is affiliated with the national International Relations Clubs and is sponsored Under the leadership of Barbara Finlayson, the Feathers inaugurated a new plan of " tapping " their members this year. The distribution of Greek and Barb girls was revised to enable more efficient choice of capable candidates. Other of- ficers were June Rose Anderson, vice-president, Diana Hoogstraat, recording secretary; Dorothy Rice, corresponding secretary; Mary Neumann, treasurer; and Shirley Buchanan, publicity chair- man. The Feathers continued to wear full uniform on Fridays despite the discontinuance of convo- cations, attended all football and basketball Officers for this year are Robert E. Johnson, president; Jane Griffith, vice-president; and Douglas Lindsey, secretary-treasurer. Miss Eliza- beth Koho is sponsor. The fraternity sponsored the annual Music Week convocation and also entertained a group of high school seniors. by the Carnegie Foundation for Peace. The na- tional organization furnished valuable discussion material and books to the club. Leading the club ' s activities this year were Hazel Slenker, president, and Shirley Buchanan, secretary-treasurer. Dr. Lyman Harris sponsored the club. A joint meeting was held in the spring with the Duchesne College club, and arrangements were made for similar semi-yearly meetings. The annual spring banquet was held in the clubroom. games, selected cheerleaders, sponsored a vice versa dance in collaboration with the " O " club in March, and held formal initiation in April. Greatest problem of the year was the saddle- shoe situation. Scarcity of black and white shoes started the trouble and rationing finished it. Starting at the time when Number 17 stamp ac- quired its importance, it was decided that any flat-heeled shoe would do for the duration. In February the Feathers took over the Bond and Stamp drive and continued the drive on Wednesdays. All members wore full uniforms on this day to aid sales. 42 Keller, Drishaus, Winters, Rapp Hillier, Heumann, Kaho, Dallinger, Heidkamp Johnson, Griffith, Lindsey Klein, Canfield, Peterson, Simon Runyan, Rundell, Suiter, Anderson, Taylor Smith, Buchanan, Slenker, Iverson, Coon Peterson, Earp, Lindevall, M.

This year the group topped its goal by 30 per cent, in spite of decreased enrollment. The Association brought several outstanding speakers to the Uni- versity during the course of the year, and par- ticipated in various state, regional, and national conferences. Co-chairmen for this year are Marie Galdc and Harold Hamilton. Secretary is Mary Louise Gronewold, treasurer is Virginia White, and cabi- net members are Betty Ross, Duane Farris, Dean Archer, LaVon Hanel, Violet Redenbaugh, and Marjorie Decker. Advisors are Dr. William Noyce, Mr. William Mead, and Mr. and Mrs. Frank Durond. An honorary chemistry fraternity. Gamma Pi Sigma, recognizes high scholastic standing in the field of chemistry. Speaker at the annual spring banquet was Ralph E. Montanna, professor of chemical engi- neering at the University of Minnesota. Subject of his speech was " Modern Concepts of the Cellu- lose Molecule. " Members initiated this year include: John Jenkins, Richard Fitch, Clyde Bohrer, Shaun Gun- derson. Gene Stech, Eleanor Petrich, Charlotte Garland, Betty Hruby, Virginia McLucas, Char- lotte Morgenstern, Nels Palmquist, Robert Wharton, Ruthaline Bundy, Virginia Hefflinger, Ruthelaine Thomsen, Bernice Pospichal, and Etta Mae Miles. Officers are Wallace Rankin, president; Clin- ton Haynes, vice-president; and Marjorie Mar- tin, secretary-treasurer. Dr. Nell Ward is spon- sor. Meeting together with the Omaha section of the American Chemical Club, the Chem Club of the University has heard many outstanding speakers in the field of chemistry. Officers of the club are president, Ernest Jaul; vice-president, Wallace Rankin; and secretary, Ruth Mattice. Outstanding accomplishment of the Pre-Med Club, composed of those students preparing to enter medical school, dental school, or the vet- ernarian field, was its activity during Tuber- culosis Week when members aided in the regis- tration and preparation for the tuberculosis tests. At the annual banquet given January 6, Dr .Toll- man of the faculty of the University of Nebraska School of Medicine spoke on " The Role of Blood in Clinical Pathology. " Officers of the Pre-Meds are Charles Dus, president; Eugene Merchant, vice-president; and Russell Jessen, secretary. Sponsor of both clubs is Dr. Nell Ward. 44 Arms, Ferris, Fust, Hughes, Laird, Archer Simpson, Rice, Lindevall, Peterson, Cole, Chenoweth, Decker H.

Boardings were frequent around Homecoming time. The outstanding social activity of the year was the annual dance at which the 0-Club sweet- heart was elected. Eleanor Mann was chosen of the candidates nominated by the five sororities. This year, in the interests of economy, the dance was given together with the Feathers, and 0-Club member Bremer was then elected as " Joe Col- lege. " Officers of the club are Roger Boulden, presi- dent; Clarence Smith, secretary-treasurer; and Leonard Graham, sergeant-at-arms. Sponsors are Sed Hartman and Roderic Crane. Outstanding accomplishment of Sigma Pi Phi, honorary education fraternity, was going nation- al, in the spring the fraternity joined the Future Teachers of America, the junior division of the National Education Association. The new affilia- tion went into effect this spring. A rush party was held in the fall for all those in the Department of Education. Twenty-one new members were initiated then, and at a winter initiation six more were initiated. All during the year the fraternity attended movies on topics of interest in the field of education. Officers for the year have been Jane Griffith, president; Mary Heumann, vice-president; Lor- raine Horn (first semester) and Patricia Lang- ston (second semester), secretary; and Vera Roberts, treasurer. Sponsor is Dr. L. O. Taylor, head of the Department of Education at the Uni- versity. Organized in 1926, the Engineers are the larg- est organization of men students on the campus. The club is open to any pre-engineering student and to any student taking drafting or other en- gineering course. Among the activities of the club during the year were a picnic at Elmwood and a Christmas party given at the home of Mr. John W. Kurtz, sponsor. Other sponsors are Mr. William H. Du- rand and Mr. C. H. Prewett. During the rest of the year the Engineers attended movies on engi- neering principles and lectures on engineering details. Officers for the fall semester were Fred Holm- strom, president; Kenny Bowlin, vice-president; Wayne Scott, secretary; and Alfred Eggers, trea- surer. Spring semester officers were Roger Lind- bloom, president; Alfred Eggers, vice-president; Wallace Roessig, secretary; and William Eller, treasurer. For the first time, women were this year ad- mitted to the club. 46 Cook, Preuss, Reinhardt, Lawry, Akromis, Zemunski, Orr Campbell, Dymacek, Hortman, Burress, Miller, Neafus Lynch, Smith, Boulden, Graham, Bremer, Pangle Iverson, Peterson, Kroll, Lindsey, Hoogstraat, Rice, Cole Payne, Hillier, Keller, Dallinger, Heidkamp, Redenbaugh, Green Thomas, Gordon, Appleby, Earp, Ross, Mann Coon, Roberts, Heumonn, Griffith, Langston, Ylander G.

" In December the University debaters sponsored the annual invitational non-elimination tourna- ment. Teams were entered in the state tourna- ment of the Nebraska Intercollegiate Forensic league at Doane College and in the Pi Kappa Delta provincial tournament at Kearney Squad members were LeRoy Canfield, John Ol- son, Sylvan Siegler, Ray Simon, Mickey Hurlbut, Margaret Rundell, Shirley Storm, Ruth Taylor, and Marcia Finer. Coach was Robert W. Starring. Kappa chapter of Sigma Tau Delta, national honorary English fraternity, this year gave up its annual Book Week drive to secure books for the University library, feeling that any books which might be donated could better be used by the Victory Book Campaign. Officers elected for the fall semester were Charles Rockey, president; Roberta Green, secre- tary; and Elizabeth Drishaus, treasurer. Sponsors are Dr. A. Dayle Wallace and Dr. Benjamin Boyce. Program for the year included the annual ban- quet, the creative writing contest for all Univer- sity students, and initiation of new members. Chief topic of discussion of the local chapter of Alpha Kappa Delta, national honorary sociol- ogical fraternity, was the social problems arising out of the war. The University of Omaha chapter is Alpha of Nebraska. Among the speakers at the monthly meetings were Mrs. Herman Metz of the American Wo- men ' s Volunteer Service; Mr. Richard Collins, Juvenile Court probation officer; Lt. Guendolyn Harvey, Women ' s Army Auxiliary Corp; and Mr. Don Warner of the Office of Civilian Defense who showed movies on veneral disease control. New members initiated this year are Jeanne Chenoweth, Gwen Lindevall, Harold Hamilton, Walter Kieker, Pauline Moher, Marjorie Decker, and Marjorie Magner. Membership requirements are a B average in all University work and com- pletion of at least twelve hours in sociology. Ira O. Jones is president. Other officers are Angeline Tauchen, vice-president; Mildred Ross, secretary; Mrs. Paul Box, treasurer. Dr. T. Earl Sullenger is sponsor. 48 DEBATE SIGMA TAU DELTA Rundell, Olson, Canfield, Hurlbut Taylor, Simon, Finer Rockey, Olson, Wallace, Starr, Hills Drishaus, Green, Kaiser, Larsen This year all organizations were at a great dis- advantage. Conditions have been entirely too un- settled to permit the completion of any plans, however well-organized they might be. What with the army calling the men away from the campus, essential jobs calling the women, and the scholastic load on those remaining being so much heavier than usual, the wonder is that or- ganizations existed at all. To make matters worse, sponsors disappeared in the middle of the year to join the armed forces, and the shortening of the school year didn ' t help things out either. But despite all these trials and tribulations, the clubs went on with their work and carried out their plans as successfully as possible under the circumstances, and in many cases accomplished more despite the difficulties than they had in previous more smoothly-running years. 49 Defensively, the Barbs were probably the strongest team on the court. Al Nepomnick and Carl Preuss, the two " iron " guards, were instru- mental in stopping many a basket-bound drive of opponents. Offensively, they didn ' t do badly either. Preuss was the second highest scorer in the league with 38 points, and Nepomnick was fourth with 27 points. As usual, Dorrel Clemmer, Harvey Sapot, and Marvin Gerber played well. Bob Hennecke, a newcomer to the team, was the sixth member who caused trouble for the op- ponents. Phi Sig and Alpha Sig had a duel also, but theirs was for last place. Each team was able to Jumping rope isn ' t childish . . . pushups . . . captains Berman, Eggers, Moredick, Zimmer . . . boxing is requi in ujcnter Intramurau . . . When the basketball season rolled around, the tide was turned and Independents were held to a tie with Thetas for first place, each team losing one game to the other. The Theto cagers sported a powerful team, with Lynn Neafus, Jack Carter, Bill Cook, Hank Moberg, and Fred Holmstrom furnishing most of the power. Carter led the season ' s scoring with 51 points. Cook scored more points in one game than did anyone else, reaching the total of 23 against Phi Sig. Neafus transferred to the var- sity team midway in the season to gain new glory in a faster league — the North Central confer- ence. 50 muster only one victory against five defeats. Neale Peterson was easily the standout for the Phi Sig basketeers, scoring 34 points during the season and finishing third in individual scoring. Jack Shields stood out defensively for the Phi Sigs. Allen Peterson, Cal Olson, and Chuck Lynch surprised the Phi Sigs in the opening game for each team and led the Alpha Sigs to victory. The opposition, in the form of Independents and Thetas, grew tougher, however, as the season went by, and the Alpha Sigs were denied any more victories. An intramural all-star team was picked by the captains. They played the Jewish Community Center varsity team and Clifton Hills, losing both tilts by close scores. A new feature in winter intramurals was bowl- ing. Intramural points were given out for the games in a single round robin tournament. Theta was well-equipped for this new competition. Fred Holmstrom, Ronnie Seastedt, and Roger Lind- bloom led the Theta team. Individual sports, i.e., boxing, wrestling, and table tennis, prospered. With the tough physical fitness program Director Stu Bailer brewed, box- ing and wrestling were given considerable at- tention. Every able-bodied male student entered either a novice or an open boxing or wrestling tournament. The table tennis room was opened to the public more this year than in the past, so a greater percentage of players entered the tour- nament than in preceding years. Physical fitness being stepped up as a result of the war, the competitors in intramurals were definitely tougher than they have been in the past. Consequently, the pace of intramurals was increased greatly. Intramurals definitely had a good season. Help with calisthenics . . . volleyball in the auditorium . . . Kitner on a rope . . . Lindblom and unknown wrestling, also required. FIRST PLACE WINNER McCONNELL AND JUDGE ROMBERG judged tLe annua LaiAjl i eauitij (Contest oma- Sigmund Romberg, composer and conductor, selected the winners of the official 1943 Toma- hawk beauty contest, held at the Fontenelle Ho- tel March 2. Winners are Hazel McConnell, first place; Betty Lou Haas, second place; and Helen Larsen, third place. A total of fourteen girls were nominated by fraternities, sororities. Independents, and peti- tions. Contestants drew numbers by lot and ap- peared before the judge in numerical order. No pictures were used; Mr. Romberg made his selec- tions by personal appearance and interviews, poise and personality being taken into considera- tion. The show was " stolen " when Mr. Romberg invited all contestants and contest officials to be his guests at the Tuesday evening perform- ance at the Paramount. This is the first time a single out-of-town judge has chosen the contest winners wholly on the basis of personal appearance, with girls ap- pearing in street and afternoon dress. Other entrants in the contest were Nell Evans, Frances Olson, Marion Ganaros, Bobra Suiter, Patty Ibsen, Mary Heumann, Mary Ellen Ma- honey, Jane Griffith, Marjorie Ripper, Ruth Neef, and Margaret Rundell. 52 Second Place BETTY LOU HAAS Blue eyes, brown hair — an almost-blonde . . . freshman . . . seventeen . . .

( Photo by Carter eeiina aaam Lird annual i axteF " lech BEARDSLEY RUML The third annual Baxter Memorial lecture series was given this year by Beardsiey RumI, author of the nationally disputed " pay-as-you- go " plan of taxation. The lectures were held in the auditorium of the University March 25 and March 26. The subject of the first lecture was " Government and Business, " and that of the sec- ond, " Government and Values. " Mr. RumI is well qualified to speak on the re- lationship of government and business, since he is a successful businessman and yet a scholar interested in economic and sociological prob- lems. Born in the neighboring state of Iowa, Mr. RumI comes from a family whose members, all successful, worked their way up from the bottom. He was educated at Dartmouth, where he made Phi Beta Kappa. He then went on to the Univer- sity of Chicago, where he obtained his doctorate of philosophy with a thesis on psychometry, the measurement of mental capacity. After obtaining his doctorate, Mr. RumI be- came an instructor at the Carnegie Institute, and, during the war, was in charge of developing the trade tests used by the army. Soon after, he moved to a position in the Carnegie corporation. When his superior left, RumI left also to become director of the Laura Spelman Rockefeller foun- dation, a position he held for seven years. Dur- ing this time he evolved a " suggestion " which later became the New Deal agricultural domestic allotment plan. In 1931 Mr. RumI became dean of the social science section of the University of Chicago. This position he held till 1934, when he became trea- surer of R. H. Macy and Company, New York de- partment store. This job he now holds, together with the chairmanship of the board of the Fed- eral Reserve Bank of New York, and positions as advisor to the National Resources Planning Board, trustee of the Museum of Modern Art and of the Farm Foundation, and director of the National Bureau of Economic Research. Chairman of the University committee in charge of the lectures this year was Mr. E. M. Hosman. 56 Bremer, Neef, Bruhn, Brown, Maystrick, Mann, Burress Not pictured: Graham ance . . .

On the other hand, the school track team was smaller in number than in the past years, though quality was high. The Indian natters completed a five-game schedule without a defeat, making Tarkio Col- lege of Missouri and Midland victims twice each and Morningside once. Tarkio boasted of two Tri-State c hampions, Keith Bloom and Jim Nix- on. Bloom was junior singles and doubles cham- pion, while Nixon was partner in junior doubles. Ben Miller, Bob Havens, Bob Cain, Bill Pangle, and Roy Valentine took care of the Tarkio team, however, 3-2 and 3-0. The other matches were called off because of weather. Miller, Havens, and Cain competed in the North Central confer- ence meet but were beaten by the conference champions. Cain and Havens reached the quar- terfinals, while Miller got to the semi-finals. The golfers had only one dual meet with Morn- ingside before representing Omaha in the confer- ence meet. The Maroons beat George Rehschuh and Wayne Bremer in a close match, but revenge was sweet for these two in the conference meet, since they placed third, ahead of Morningside. Bob Matthews, probably the greatest all- around athlete the school has ever known, led in tracking scoring with 34 1 12 points. Clarence Smith was ten points behind " Matty " with 24y4 points. Wayne Peterson was ten points behind " Smitty " with 14. Altogether, the tracksters competed in three meets besides the conference meet at Brookings, South Dakota. The Indian thinclads sped past Midland in a dual meet with a score of 68 1 3 to 44 2 3, took third place in the Peru Invita- tional meet, eight schools competing, and placed third in the South Dakota Invitational, five schools competing. 58 in o ia6t 00 Alpha Sigma Lambda swept through the 1942 intramural baseball round robin undefeated and took two out of three games in the play-off to win what was probably the last hard-boll tourna- ment here for the duration, Thetas, champions of the preceding year, had trouble putting their theoretically strong team together and were hard pressed for their second place rating. The Theta captain, Hank Moberg, set a new school record in season ' s strikeouts. Best in fielding was the South nine. Boasting an excellent pitcher in Bob Dymocek, South was nevertheless too weak in offense to rise above third place. Ranking high only in ardor, North-Benson ' s rookies were too " green " to threaten the more experienced nines and finished at the bottom of the heap. Outstanding player of the year was Emery Christenson, Alpha Sig catcher, who slugged away at a .474 clip to set the pace in this depart- ment. An all-star team, picked by the captains of the other clubs, trounced the league-leading Alpha Sigs, 14-5, in the Mo-ie Day feature. An intramural track and field meet was held last spring under the direction of Harold Johnk, now an ensign in the U. S. Navy. With partici- pants divided between two teams, Greeks and Barbs, the meet was won by the latter, 62-56. Individual and relay winners included Murray Kitner, Don Franzen, Ralph Grosjeon, Bob Welty, Bob Yudelson, Jim Oglesby, Len Graham, Marvin Gerber, and Bob Dymacek. Bob Havens nosed out Ben Miller to become singles champion in the 1 942 tennis tournament. Havens and Bob Coin were doubles champs, this duo beating out Miller and Roy Valentine. Golf champion in 1942 was Bob Hennecke, who beat Wayne Bremer in the finals, 2-1. John Orchard and Dick Canovon lost out in the semi- finals. Lyie Noble defeated Len Graham to become the 1942 horseshoes king. George Rehschuh, 1941 champion, and Chuck Adams were semi- finalists.

Beck Ronnie Peterson Barbara Finlayson Dorothy Rice Mary Neumann Clarence Smith, jr. Diana Hoogstraat Homer Starr Parsley, Graham, Lindsey, Rousek Taylor, Iverson, Miller, Anderson Buchanan, Slenker, Klein, Hurlbut Le omaliaiuL Id Suppose J to come out in the 6pnvi( , not in til e Summer An extremely limited budget for all student publications forced a choice on the students of the University early in the year: either extreme- ly curtailed versions of both the GATEWAY and the TOMAHAWK, or the elimination of the year- book. Deeming it more advisable to retain the yearbook if possible, the student paper was re- duced to comparatively infrequent appearances. This year the GATEWAY, student paper, has been edited and published by students in the regular journalism classes as part of their as- signed work. In order to spread opportunities as much as possible, students act as reporter one week, editor the next week, and make-up editor the third. Outstanding feature of the TOMAHAWK was its appearance on schedule and the breaking of the tradition that the book must always be at least a month late. (Editorial note: these write- ups are prepared far, far in advance of publica- tion. ) Another innovation in the TOMAHAWK is the new style of organization. This year ' s book is presented in a narrative, diary style. Events are presented as they occur during the year, and or- ganizations are placed in the year whenever their greatest activities occur. Editor this year is Annette Klein. Associate editor is Mickey Hurlbut, and assistant editors are Phyll Iverson, Walter Graham, Hazel Slenk- er, and Shirley Buchanan. June Rose Anderson is consulting editor and Phyll Carter is photog- rapher. • . The beauty contest, judged this year by the noted composer Sigmund Romberg, was handled by Hazel Slenker. Phyll Iverson was in charge of administration and faculty, classes, and sports. She was assisted by Robert Rousek, Ben Miller, and Homer Starr. Activities were under Shirley Buchanan, and Walter Graham covered Greek activities. Editorial assistants were Ruth Taylor and Ray Parsley. Douglas Lindsey was business manager of all publications and was in charge of the student directory, assisted by Jeanne Winter. Roy Valen- tine was advertising solicitor. 66 Item, I) at tLi6 a secret Princess Attira VII I ROSEANNE HUDSON Princess Attira VIII of 1942 — Roseanne Hudson — was presented at the intermission of the Ma-ie Day dance at Peony Park last spring. Princess " Posey " was an Independent. She was a member of the debate team. Feathers, Sigma Tau Delta, and W.A.A., and had been chosen to Who ' s Who Among Students in American Col- leges and Universities for two years and to the Dean ' s Honor List. Upon graduation in June of 1942 she received her Bachelor of Arts Degree with Distinction with a major in English. Ma-ie Day of 1942 began with a parade through the downtown district — the last parade for some time to come. Winner of the float con- test was Alpha Sigma Lambda, second prize go- ing to Phi Delta Psi. Upon the parade ' s return to the University, the traditional freshman- sophomore athletic contests for both men and women were held in Elmwood Park. The afternoon program began with the inter- Greek sing in the auditorium. First place went to Gamma Sigma Omicron, second to Phi Delta Psi. A novelty effect was presented by the Theta Phi Delta " welders ' chorus, " a more or less musi- cal take-off on the shop courses. The program continued with skits presented by all Greek organizations and the Independents. Theta Phi Delta won first place, Gamma Sigma Omicron won second, and Pi Omega Pi won third. Prize for best curtain act went to Jacqueline Maag and Barbara Glotfelty. Master of ceremonies was Bob Spellmeyer. Sev- eral special awards were announced during the program. An " O " sweater was given to cheer- leader Jerry Trude for two years ' service. Margie Litherbury, Tomahawk editor for 1942, an- nounced the three winners of the Tomahawk Beauty Contest: Maxine Lancaster, Kay Emery, and Dorothy Cappell. Also announced were the ten outstanding seniors as selected by the Stu- dent Council and the faculty: Roberta Carson, Robert Turner, Alice Egner, Naomi Eyre, Rose- anne Hudson, Etta Soiref, John Knudsen, Robert Knapp, John Tyrrell, and Margie Litherbury.
