Text from Pages 1 - 144 of the 1947 volume:

Abraham Lincoln termed it reconstruction, Warren G. Harding coined the phrase " getting back to normalcy ' Today the word is reconver- sion. But whatever the term- inology, the thought is the same — the creation of con- ditions comparable to those which existed before the ab- normality of war. The program at Omaha University for 1946-47 was also affected by this desire; an extra-curricular program including more of the pre- war activities was instituted. Most noticeable of all was the reactivation of athletics. For the first time in four years the football field felt the trample of cleats. Intra- murals and regular practice were begun with plans promulgated for college com- petition next year. Begun a year earlier, but carried out with more vehemence this year, was the participation of the Indians in intercollegiate basketball. Hockey was initially experienced under the auspices of 0. U. in an endeavor to determine its popularity among the Red and Black. Boxing and track were brought back again. And with it all uniformed cheerleaders enthusiastically led record breaking crowds in school yells. Other activities were innovated after a war-time absence. The annual Joe College election was held after a four-year dormancy. Because fellows once again graced the campus, dances sponsored by both the Student Council and various organ- izations were held in abundance. Discussions in the Coffee Hour centered around questions pertinent to the returned veteran. The Tomahawk beauty contest and the style show were more elaborate than heretofore. Frats were once again in full swing. The success of a three-act play, realized for the first time in 1945-46, was again experienced. A jazz band was organized. To accommodate this inciessed activity, the Pow Wow Inn was opened for the benefit of snacking, ping pong, cards, dancing to the tunes of a juke box, and general socializing. Two quonset huts were erected, one for athletics and one for machine shops. The cafeteria served the double purpose of morning study and the noon meal. Plans were discussed for a field house as well as for another building duplicating the structure of the main building. Thus was seen an honest effort to reconstruct pre-war activities, to get back to normalcy, to reconvert from abnormal living. The program has not been fully ac- complished; the sports and activities sections are still slim in the Tomahawk. But the process is evident, and to this emergence of another full, well rounded college program this book is dedicated. STAFF Editor . Marian E. Mortensen Business Manager .

Gordon Briggs, president John Kovarik, vice-president Fat Flood, secretary-treasurer Representing over 63 per cent of the entire enrollment, the Class of 1950 did not suffer the usual fate of under- classmen. Not only this quantity but the quality, which 750 veterans gave the freshmen, brought both academic and social prestige. They elected musically-inclined Gordon Briggs president, with Vice-president John Kovarik and Treasurer Pat Flood assisting in the leadership of this, the largest group at 0. U. Virginia Haun, Eileen Wolfe, Harry Elsasser and William Finch represented them on the Student Council. A definite undercurrent of industry was noticeable in their study and work habits. It was a group of students here for a purpose, whether Uncle Sam or Dad was footing the bill. Yet it was a class that lived up to traditional expectations of new college students. G. I. humor and fresh-from-high school witticisms mixed to produce an air of fun and vitality. Profiting from the 3 to 1 ratio, girls at the two Freshman Mixers enjoyed the attentions of stag lines which twined through turn-away crowds. On Oct. 4, Marion Hansen, vi- vacious little blonde, and wavy-haired Bob O ' Hara were hailed as typical freshman boy and girl. Freshmen were interested in extra-curicular activities in all fields. Just note these figures: Over 50% of the first- string athletic squads were first-year men. Bill Fear dis- tinguished himself by becoming first Frosh Head Cheer Leader. One-fifth of the Tomahawk staff were beginners. Those unheard-of reporters who filled the columns of the Gateway each week were, for the most part, new to Omaha University. Over 100 members pledged Greek organiza- tions and 50 joined the Independents. Seventy-five per cent of the debate squad and one-third of the University Player ' s members had ' 50 on their beanies. The choir and orchestra boasted a large enrollment of beginning students. In every department, organization and social activity, they were there adding their zest and talents. The Freshmen arrived and " The situation was well in hand. " FRESHMAN STUDENTS, Second Semester, 1946-47 Freddie Abboud, Harold M. Abrahamson, Morris Abramson, Andriana N. Adams, Charles W.

Anticipation signifies more than the anxiety of graduation because it is based on more than just the wonder of what the future holds for us. This word " anticipation " represents the feeling that exists as a result of having done preparation for a field, then having definitely selected our major, we are eager to put this training to work for us. We await our senior year somewhat reluctantly because we feel that it will bring a rather definite close to one of the greatest chapters in our lives, and we are somewhat hesitant about rushing it. On looking back to the days of activity since we entered in 1944, we can refer to the " good ol ' days " when cafeteriology was our favorite and most successful subject, and the " caf " our favorite classroom. Remember how that bell would ring, loud and long, for us to make a hasty exit in order that the crew could start preparations for the next meal? What an honor for us this year to have a junior, Don Nielsen, cut the tape for the formal opening of the new addition: the Pow-Wow Inn. Other bright spots for us juniors are Beverly Bigelow and Patricia Patterson who have both won scholarships; Beverly in music, and Pat in history. The juniors were represented in every organization which is functioning here on the campus. We found Don Nielsen and Ellie Steinman heading the Student Council, with Bill Beebe as our third representative. i Do you have a book store number? Learning about France in French We saw Norma Jacobus, Don Nielsen, Gail Pheney and Pat Roessig rise to honors as they were elected to Who ' s Who. There are many others who have accepted responsibilities as officers in organizations.

Juniors who helped to give us our weekly news, " ' The Gateway " are Robert Rousek, editor- in-chief; Eugene Hoaglan, picture editor; Harry Jassmann, business manager; and Roy Valentine, make-up editor. And the book you now hold, your Tomahawk, was made possible through the cooperation of such juniors as Pat Roessig, Stuart Borg, Jeanne Finch, Audrey Hansen, Marion Keller, Gail Pheney, Bob Rispler, Bill Shultz, and Lois Spellman.

Of the 133 students graduating from the University of Omaha in June or August, only a few began their college careers in September 1943. Most of the ' 47 grads had their education interrupted by service in some branch of the armed forces. Back in the fall of ' 43 the enrollment was 1500 students, many of whom were in the School of Adult Education, government sponsored war training courses and student nurses training. Of course most of the students were women as evidenced by the fact that they received 13 out of 15 class offices at that time. Most of the men students enrolled were attempting to get in a semester of college work before going into the armed forces, and they were given opportunities to take qualifying examina- tions for the army and navy specialized training. Students from 18 universities were represented at Omaha University. Through the war years some of the imiversity professors were going into the armed forces . . . students were buying bonds and stamps . . . the Gateway contained a column, " The War and You " , which told news of men and women in the service . . . the fraternities had been inactivated . . . women students were pledging sororities . . . football was put on the inactive list . . . basketball an d debate were the main activities kept alive . . . and the university was plan- ning for the future and anticipating an enlarged opportunity to serve the community. When V-E day and V-J day passed, service personnel became veterans, and the second semester of 1945-46 found them flocking back to the university in great num- bers. A total of 500 discharged servicemen and women registered in the University of Omaha at that time. The members of the June and August graduating class of 1947 have probably had more beginnings and interruptions than any other graduating class of the University of Omaha. 36 These things we take from Omaha U . . , Raold R.

Md-ie Day Princess Princess AxTiRA xii, Eileen Cobb 50 Princess Eikie coming through Life Plii Delt ' s Harem U.S.S. Kappa Pi Omega ' s Heaven President Haynes crowning Eikie Sing winners — Sig Chi 51 M A - I E DAY Dawn peeped over the bluffs and, weeping a sky full of tears, stomped inlo Omaha on muddy feet. It was Ma-ie Day, May 10, 1946. Rain or no, 0. U. ' ers were not to be bested on this day of days. From various and assorted garages which protected the floats, the Greeks eagerly awaited the judges. They came, they saw, and the results? Phi Delta Psi ' s " Harem " , first place; Pi Omega ' s " Heaven " , second place; and Alpha Sig ' s " In War and Peace " , third place. Noon stormed over the auditorium. Inside the Greeks were gaily warbling in mad competition . . Sig Chi, first place; Pi 0, second place; and Gamma, third place. " Life photographers " McPherson and Marshall led the original seven act skit, " Life Goes to Ma-ie Day " which included Theta ' s now famous " The Shooting of Dan McGrew " . . Russian and Mexican dancers . . . Cafscapade . . . and finally Sig Chi ' s Eikie Cobb bursting through a huge cover of Life magazine to be proclaimed Princess Attira XII. Night came and with it the Ma-ie Day Dance . . the Inter-Sorority Scholar- ship Award to Kappa Psi Delta ... a gold compact to Princess Eikie . . . many hearty congratulations ... a happy laugh . . . and another successful Ma-ie Day was over. HOMECOMING Mary Ingrid Paulson, Independent, was crowned Homecoming Princess of 1946 November 15, at Peony Park. A near capacity crowd of approximately 1,500 persons attended the dance and looked on as the ceremony began with the princess ' attendants Jessie Rodman, Dor- othy Drishaus, Betty Earp Vojir and Margaret Peterson walking to the stage. Miss Paulson then entered wearing the ceremonial robe and carrying a bouquet of roses. President Rowland Haynes crowned Miss Paulson with the traditional Indian crown. Don Nielsen, master of ceremonies, presented the princess with an engraved compact. Marjory Mahoney, Dave Elmore, Bill Beebe and Jetsie Rodman were Student Council members of the committee in charge of the dance. Homecoming Princess ALPHA SIG SWEETHEART Alpha Sigma Lambda fraternity marked 1946 as a year of revived traditions. Margie Westin was was honored at the a nnual fra- chosen Alpha Sig Sweetheart and fraternity pledge dance Nov. 22 at the Omaha Field Club. She was presented with a gold bracelet by Bill Beebe, fraternity president. Presentation of the Pan-Hellenic Council ' s " Scholastic Cup " was also revived at the dance. This cup was presented to the league in 1927 by the Alpha Sigs, to be given to the fraternity or sorority with the highest scholastic record for the year. Jeanne Finch accepted the award for Pi Omega Pi, the sor- ority which has topped other Greek organizations in scholastic achievement for three consecutive years.

TOMAHAWK BEAUTY CONTEST " Unto you who are members of the Tomahawk staff, I say — let it so happen that the Tomahawk beauty contest be new and different this year — a precedent, no less. " Thus speaking, Marian Mortensen put on her coat of many colors and assumed her duties as editor-in-chief. " Yea, as certain as the stars shine, let there be lots of gals with beautiful hair, eyes and smiles. " Thus speaking, sponsor Robert " Chief " Mossholder bowed to the lowly sinners, male members of the staff, who cast their palms into their pockets and produced handkerchiefs with which to wipe their dampened chins. " Oh, worthy ones, so shall it be! " cried meek and humble Jo Sorenson, chairman in-charge. As it was written by the prophets, it so happened that on the first day, Tuesday, February 18, the preliinary contest took place in the university auditorium. And the thirty-four contestants took unto themselves their glad-rags, their courage and walked the length of the red-carpeted, palm bedecked stage from thence they descendd from the mount. Those of great awe, judges Mrs. Willa Davis, Mr. Virgil Sharpe, and Mr. H. T. Pierce, took to moving their necks and eyeballs rather violently, considered, reconsidered, and came up with twelve contestants who would go to the finals . . . Verily, verily, I say unto you, that on the second day, Wednesday, February 19, three other prominent Omahans, Mrs. Christine Cummings, Mr. Lawrence Robinson and Mr. Kendrick Wilson besat themselves in leather-covered chairs from whence they came to judge the Beautiful and the Shapely. And it came to pass in that final hour that those who held such power raised their mighty hands, and the spotlights shone, the contestants quaked and the tumult quieted. And the humble mistress of ceremonies ceased wrestling with the micro- phone and read the proclomation from a scroll edged with doodelings . . Marilyn Henderson, first place; Barbara Hoffman, second place; and Geraldine Johnson, third place ... all from the tribe of Sigma Chi Omicron. Lo and behold. On the night of February 21 these babes of wondrous beauty were presented formally at the all-school Red-skin Romp at Peony Park and unto them were given compacts of distinctive engraving. And there was great rejoicing among the subjects of the Kingdom of Omaha U. for unto them had come their queen.

DEATH TAKES A HOLIDAY Maxwell Anderson, noted playwright, says that the pur- pose of the theater is to find and hold up to our regard what is admirable in the human race, for the theater is an insti- tution devoted entirely to the exaltation of the spirit of man. Perhaps it was some such idea which prompted the Univer- sity Players to choose for their annual production the play, ' " Death Takes a Holiday ' ' by Alberto Casella, rewritten for the American stage by Walter Ferris. Based on the poetic conception of Death suspending all activities for three days during which period he lives as a mortal in order to deter- mine why men fear him and cling to life, it is a play that arouses thought, stimulates discussion, and presents a novel and optimistic philosophy on the problems of love and death. Played with understanding and skill, the production moved smoothly from quiet philosophic discussions to highly exciting movements of suspense and drama. Directed by Frances Key, the cast was headed by Charles Gray as Death, Robert Rispler as Duke Lambert de Catolica, Joan Webb as Corrado, and Dolores Hughes as the Princess. Others in the cast included Joan Sorenson, Marjorie Mahoney, Sebastian Campagna, Kathryn Loukas, Lee Happe, Warren Vickery, Virginia Haun, Phillip Caniglia. The technical staff was headed by Sherman Lower and Fred Merrill, and included Dean Morrill, Charles Farnham, Eugene Emmett, Dwight Miller, and Oscar Beasley as the Prompter Bill Dempster buys ticket from Earl Jorgenson, business manager assistants. Margie Finley, Virginia Haun, Corrinne Rich, Pearl Sommer, Pat McCormick served as the property com- mittee, while costumes were assembled by Marilyn Hender- son, Gloria Pheney, and Beverly Benson. Jeanne Finch directed makeup work. Earl Jorgenson was the business manager, and Larry David and Dolores Hughes were res- ponsible for publicity. Bill Dempster served as prompter and assistant to the director. Margery Turner was chairman of the play reading committee.

MODERN DANCE The Modern Dance Group, under the direction of Mrs. Glee Meier, presented its annual spring concert at the Joslyn Memorial, April 20. The concert opened with a number by Shostakovitch, followed by a modern ballet, " The Daily Paper " , by Freda Miller; a spiritual, " Sweet Little Jesus Boy " , by Magensy, and Gersh- win ' s " Concerto in F " featuring a solo dance by Miss Jacquelyn McMahill, assistant to Mrs. Meier. Under the direction of Mrs. Meier and Miss McMahill, the class was responsible for the chor- eography for the dances in the concert. Members of the group formed an Orchesis organization for the perfection of dance technique and to provide opportunity for crea- tive work. Officers of Orchesis include Lucia Grove, president; Pat Smith, vice-president ; La Von Hansen, secretary-treasurer, and Pat Roessig, publicity chairman. Students at Coffee Hour lean forward to hear Dr. Tyson ' s summation COFFEE HOUR Students and faculty members continued their " get-acquainted " policy at Coffee Hours this year. The meetings were held every other week in the Faculty Clubroom for all interested collegians. A panel, consisting of a faculty member, a Student Council representative and another student, began discussion of topics of general interest, and the group continued throughout the period. Questions such as ' " Does Higher Education Affect Your Personality? ' " " Why Are You Going to College? " " Should Labor Have an Active Part in Management? " and " What Should Be Our Foreign Policy? " were taken up. Marian Mortensen and Bill Beebe, Student Council members, were co-chairmen in charge of arrangements, with Dr. Wilfred Payne, chairman of the humanities, faculty sponsor. THE DEAN ' S HONOR ROLL " Keep open minds to seemingly revolutionary ideas; for only in that manner is progress achieved, " declared Dr. Harold C. Lueth, dean of the College of Medicine at the University of Nebraska, before the students attending the Honors Convention November 22, 1946. In his address " The Social Value of Cranks " " Dr. Lueth cited historical examples of how so-called social outcasts and shunned " cranks " have revolutionized theories and practices in the medical profession. President Rowland Haynes gave recognition to 162 honor students, holders of high school, university and music scholarships and winners of the 1946 Philip Sher Essay Contest.

Don Pflasterer, Virgil Yelkin, Lloyd Cardwell, Harold Johnk After months of intensive study, University of Omaha Regents announced on July 21, 1946, the appointment of Virgil Yelkin, former Cornhusker football star, as full-time director of ath- letics and physical education at the University, and accompanying this a new all-around inter- collegiate competitive athletic program to include football, basketball, track and minor sports. Yelkin comes to us with an outstanding coaching and administrative record. As a back- ground, his athletic career started in 1926 when he was a student in Lincoln high school. There he was chosen all state and Missouri Valley football end and basketball guard, and in 1930, he was co-captain of both of these state championship teams. He was a three year major letterman in football with D. X. Bible ' s great teams of 1933, 1934, and 1936. In his last year, he was named to the All Big-Six by the Kansas City Star and the same year received honorable mention as an end on Collier ' s Ail-American team. Although he was offered a playing contract by the Chicago Cardinals, professional football team, he turned it down to enter the coaching field where he did well at South -Sioux City High School, Norfolk High School and from 1939 to Sept. 1, 1936 at Fremont High. Lloyd Cardwell will be remembered as the " Wild Horse " of Nebraska who ran rampant over his opponents in the Big Six. He has been named head football coach, and will guide the team next fall in the first competition since 1942. Don Pflasterer was a nine letter man at the University of Omaha, most outstanding in football during the years 1939, 1940, and 1941. He has been coach of the " B " basketball team, and is slated to coach the backfield of the football team next fall. Coaching duties for the basketball squad were handled by Harold Johnk. Mr. Johnk is also an alumnus of the University of Omaha and was an outstanding athlete. BASKETBALL Winning nine out of nineteen games, the 1946-47 Indian basketball squad com- pleted its most successful season since the return of basketball to the campus. The tribe climaxed its season by upsetting a strong Colorado State team 52 to 50. In the belief that teams can improve themselves only by playing better quintets, Coach Harold Johnk scheduled games with such outstanding squads as Bradley Tech, Montana State, and Colorado State. Although they came out on the short end of two of these contests, the Indians picked up plenty of pointers that crme in handy later. Lack of adequate practice facilities proved a major hindrance to the Indian squad. Because the Tech High gym was available only twenty-four nights during the whole season. Coach Johnk was forced to put his boys through their paces on the postage stamp floor of the University quonset hut. Dead-eye Mike Landman copped the individual scoring honors by sinking 94 field goals and 29 gift tosses, for a total of 217 markers in the Indians ' 19 contests. Glen Eckstrom was second with 158 points, followed closely by Rog Sorensen with 150. The team as a whole rolled up 1002 points to their opponents ' 954.

FOOTBALL Football will again make its appearance on the campus of the University in 1947. Coach Lloyd Cardwell put his prospective 1947 team through a vigorous spring training program. If the enthusiasm shown by the candidates out for spring foot- ball is indicative of the spirit that will be shown next fall Omaha U. will undoubt- edly have a team of the " better than average class. " Archie Arvin knocks down a Red pass 76 HOCKEY This year Omaha University pioneered a new phase on college sports, ihis was the introduction of hockey. Although it was not regarded as a definite part of the athletic program, it is hoped that it will be able to take its place in inter-collegiate sports by next season. Members of the team were handicapped by the lack of equipment and having to practice under adverse conditions. The Ak-Sar-Ben Coli- seum was made available to them for practice purposes, but only after ten o ' clock at night. The team was coached by Mr. Jack Sandler, a well known sports announcer and hockey enthusiast.

Even though the boys as a team failed to win any of the four meets in which they participated, it once again started the ground work for 1947. At the last minute, Sed Hartman received the official OK from the administra- tion and made a call late in the season. Those who did turn out worked hard to get in shape before the starting gun. The nucleus of the squad, as in all sports, was made up mainly of returned G. I. ' s. Some of the fellows found it extremely difficult to reach anything near perfect condition after a two or three year lay-off. But the main thing Hartman was happy about was the attitude of the boys. Four boys earned the required nine points for a major letter. They were: Don Krueger, 440 and 220; Jensen, middle-distance, Mel Sherman, weights, and Hugh Schultz, weights. These four fellows were constant point getters for the 0. U. cindermen all along. They received able assistance from Ed Leipmoneck in the 880, and Jack West in the 880 and 440. Krueger is the only letterman who will be on the 1947 squad. INTRA-MURAL SPORTS Under the direction of Don Pflasterer the 1946-47 intrci-mural program was the most complete and broad in scope since the end of the war. This rejuvenated plan included touch football, volleyball, ping-pong, basketball, boxing, track, and softball. New student managers chosen in the fall for the 1946-47 season were Neal Walker, Benson; Eli Legino, South; Cleveland Marshall, Central; Bob Tichnor, North; Ray Atkins, Outstate; Bob Dymacek, Theta; Harold Jungbluth, Alpha Sig; and George Reinhardt, Phi Sig. At the first meeting it was decided that only the points earned in softball, basketball, ping-pong, touch football, and baseball should count on the annual championship. The other sports would be conducted as open tournaments with medals awarded to the winners and runnersup. The 1945-46 intra-mural championship was won by Theta Phi Delta. So far this year winning teams have been Benson in touch football ; Theta in ping-pong, both doubles and singles; Theta in volleyball; and South in basketball.

One such tournament was held at Nebraska Wesleyan University; another was held on the home campus in early December. The states of Iowa, Nebraska and South Dakota were represented. Following this, decision tournaments were held in which 0. U. ' ers matched their debating knowledge with other colleges. In December, a two day trip was made to Kearney in which 0. U. had one team which remained undefeated during the entire tournament. In February, at a meet held at Nebraska University, the debate squad had good and excellent ratings predominating. Henry Campbzell re- ceived a superior rating in discussion; Don Johnson received excellent. Entrees were also made in radio newsbroadcasting and oratory. The season was culminated in March at Wayne, Nebraska, with Omaha U. winning first and second place in debate and second place in discussion. This was the Nebraska Intercollegiate Foren- sic League tourney. Intermittently, convocation debates were held for the benefit of the student body. Yankton, South Dakota debated Omaha U. before an evening audience in December; Iowa State negated against the host school before the day school student body in January; while Nebraska U. and Omaha U. clashed in an assembly during March. Omaha U. was also host to a high school practice tourney in early February. The high schools of Omaha and the surrounding area debated on the question of socialized medicine. This school entertains the Theta Chapter of the P i Kappa Delta Honorary De- bating Fraternity. The following are either members of this organization or are eligible for membership: Lois Brady; Henry Campbell; Bradley Field; Patricia Flood; Donald B. Johnson; Jim McCauley; Marjory Mahoney; Marian E. Mortensen, chapter president; Robert Neujahr; Don Pederson; Robert Rumery; Paul Skrekas; David Stahmer; and Eileen Wolfe. Mr. C. Loyd Shubert, debate coach, also holds membership in this organization. The debate question for this season was " Resolved: That labor should be given a direct share in the management of industry. " ENGINEERS ' CLUB Bi-weekly meetings and tours through Omaha ' s industrial plants accounted for a large part of the year ' s activities of the enlarged and improved Engineers ' Club. The club, its roll bulging because of the increased enrollment of men students, vis- ited the Northwestern Bell Telephone Building, the Omaha Steel Works, Paxton and Mitchell Iron Works, Union Pacific Locomotive and Machine Shops, and the new addition to Boys Town. Besides these tours, members attended a Westinghouse lec- ture and display in November, However, activity was not all on the business side. A picnic and hayrack party were held in April, and the group also took a large part in the Ma-ie Day festivities. The Engineers ' Club elected two sets of officers last year. Those for the first semester included Fred Freelin, president; Ernest Endsworth, vice-president; Lau- rence Osborn, secretary; and Julius Jorgenson, treasurer. President Ernest Ends- worth, Vice-president Robert Chester, Secretary Laurence Osborn, and Treasurer Dan Foley made up the officer ' s roster for the second term.

In October, three members attended a divisional meeting of the American Home Economics Association at Lincoln. Those who at- tended were Jean Mathewson, Beve rly Freelin and Marilyn White. During the Christmas season, Miss Margaret Killian, sponsor, entertained the club at a party in her home. As a group project, each girl in the club made an apron and donated it to the club. The aprons were then sold to a local department store to furnish funds for the club. In January the club sampled the Blackstone Hotel ' s Continental Dinner. A tea for all prospective members was held in February. The faculty clubroom was decorated in a Valentine theme.

STUDENT COUNCIL With an increased student enrollment and an immeasureable increase in school spirit to contend with, this year ' s Student Council has had its hands full. The activitity program opened last fall with the Freshman Mixer, followed by Homecoming, and a special Christmas Dance. The highlight of the first semester was an all school variety show, the Tom Tom Revue. Second semester activities started off with a dance dubbed the Redskin Romp, continued with an April Spring Formal, and wound up with a Ma-ie Day complete with all of the pre-war trimmings. By popular demand, a second Tom Tom Revue was presented, and a Council-sponsored Red Cross Drive was held. Coffee Hours, still going strong in their second year of operation, sampled student opinion on current problems, while the Suggestion Box collected more than its share of usable ideas. As part of a program to give students better recreational facilities, the refur- nished Student Lounge made its appearance late in the first semester. Student Council officers for the year included Don Nielsen, president; Eleanor Steinman, vice-president; Audrey Bailey, secretary; and Marjory Mahoney, treasurer.

Since the period during the war had left the fraternity almost void of actives, it was deemed necessary that the fraternity be returned to its pre-war strength. Membership in the fraternity was increased to twenty-five actives and twenty-three pledges. The Sweetheart Dance, a tradition of the fraternity, was held at the Field Club. This was the first time since the war that the dance has been held. According to tradition, the Alpha Sigs elected the girl whom they thought the cutest and most popular at the University. The sweetheart, Margie Westin, was presented with an engraved bracelet at the dance. A scholastic cup was awarded by the frat to Pi Omega Pi sorority for having attained the highest scholastic average of all Greek organizations for three years. Another renewed tradition was the presentation of the individual scholarship cup to the pledge in the fraternity with the highest scholastic average. The cup this year went to Robert Beebe.

Some of the social highlights were the Theta-Sig Chi picnic in September, the Theta-Pi 0 barn dance and the Theta Pow-Wow. The last dance was put on by the Theta pledges. The biggest event of the year was the Pre-Spring Formal given by the actives at Peony Park. It was at this dance that Theta presented a sun-dial to the University which has been missing for several years. The annual Mothers Day Tea was held in the spring followed by the traditional year end picnic. Thetas proved their ability in sports by trimming the Alpha Sigs in the tra- ditional T-bowl game on Thanksgiving morning. Members of the frat were active in many organizations on the campus. They were Bill Fear, head yell leader at the University; Dave Elmore, vice-president of University Players; Lou Clure, first string basketball team; Al Borchman, second string basketball team; Bill Shultz, student publications board; Bob Dymacek, senior class vice-president; Bob Bloom, sophomore class president, and Bob Dymacek, Bob Eller and Dave Elmore, members of the student council.

From a membership of ten it has grown into an organization which this year was host to the convention of District VI of The American Alumni Council. Each year, in order to bring the Alumni together, and to bring the traditions of the school before the student body, the Association presents a Founder ' s Day Con- vocation at which a gift is presented to the University. This year, through the Alumni Association, " The Provincetown Wharf " , an oil painting by the late Miss Augusta Knight, was presented by Mr. and Mrs. David Mack Knight. This painting is now hung in the library. Every year at the time of graduation the officers of the Alumni Association pre- sent the graduates wtih a year ' s complimentary membership as a graduation gift. This year a new function has been instituted. The Alumni Association gave its first " President ' s Dinner " , honoring President Rowland Haynes on April 16. The activities of the Association are now under the leadership of Mrs. Olga J. Strimple, Executive Director; Virgil Sharpe, President; Herbert E. Story, Vice-Pres- ident ; C. Meade Chamberlin, Recording Secretary ; and Harold Henderson, Treasurer.
