IN THE BEGINNING THBREDICK MANSION Observance of the Tenth Anniversary of the one million-dollar Omaha University campus recalls the humble beginning of the University nearly forty years ago. At that time, September, 1909, nineteen bright-eyed neo-scholars seated themselves before six- teen learned doctors-the first faculty. These thirty-five pioneers made themselves as comfortable as possible in the massive, austere Redick mansion, later to be christened with a more appropriate pseudonym, Redick Hall. Dr. Daniel jenkins, theologian and faculty dean of the Omaha Presbyterian Theological Seminary, discarded his ministerial robes for the toga, becoming the first president of non-sectarian, co-educational Omaha University. Young, struggling Omaha University realized its first addition in 1911. Spurred by a donation from philanthropic Mrs. M. O. Maul, the John Jacobs Memorial gymnasium arose on the campus at Twenty-fourth and Pratt Streets. CHANGING TIMES AND CHANGING RESIDENCE Again affected by growing pains and encouraged by a substantial gift from George A. Joslyn, the University completed and held classes in Joslyn Hall in January, 1917. Nearly four hundred men and women toiled for their grades in that spacious building. Shortly after the last under-grad was out of Redick Hall the mansion was razed, and the campus returned to the normalcy of two halls. The year 1928 brought a movement to make the University a municipal institution. However, it wasn't until 1930 that interested voters had the opportunity to express them- selves at the polls. Shortly after the final vote a Board of Regents was appointed and assumed administration. The doors to the new Municipal University of Omaha opened in january, 1931, following permission received from the district and state supreme courts for the city to levy a tax for its support.

Progress continued at the campus site on Twenty-fourth and Pratt Streets until it was necessary for the Regents to search for a new location. Fifty-one acres, comprising the present permanent campus, were selected in 1936 and plans were laid in that year for the construction of the present building. A grant from the Public Works Administration together with accrued funds helped those interested in the University to realize their dream of a modern, attractive building and a campus on West Dodge in-1938. TENTH ANNIVERSARY This year, 1948, introduces the University to its tenth year of existence in the present location and also gives promise of more expansion to come. Since the war the University has outgrown its present plant, and as new con- struction has been the solution in the past so shall it be in the future. THE GUIDING HAND. l PRESIDENT HAYNES C, I , l Soon after the publication of this annual, Omaha University will - no longer be under the super- I vision of the man who has led it I through thirteen years of almost I unbelievable expansion-thirteen years which have witnessed an in- crease in enrollment of 350 per cent, a 100 per cent gain in fac- 5 ulty, and an extension of campus ll I I l '- v r and plant facilities which defies l comparison. H I 3, President Haynes came to Omaha W in 1935 visualizing a bigger and i better University. His first task l was the expansion of the physical xg, plant. With this in mind, he ap- l plied for P. W. A. funds and I searched about for a new campus location. In 1936 the new site was V purchased, and work was started 4 on the ultra-modern building i which has been Omaha University since 1938. li I v Mr. Haynes also took several I giant strides in academic progress, including establishment of the fl Adult Education School Q1938j, founding of the two colleges Q194Oj, and the origination of the Technical Institute C194-Q. . r I I I Omaha University's expansion and scholastic achievement did not go unnoticed. In 1939 the Uni- versity was admitted to the. North Central Associa- tion, and in 1941 it was okayed by the Association of American Universities. During 1946 the C. A. A. gave its approval of the Aircraft and Engine School, and the North Central Association recognized Mas- ters' Degrees given by the University. A Gateway headline proclaimed the approval of Omaha Uni- versity by the American Association of University Wfomen in 1947. Although the University and the city are indebted Beauty contest winners and President Haynes. HAYNES ENDS THIRTEENTH YEAR g AS PRESIDENT to Mr. Haynes for his leadership in the tremendous expansion that has taken place, they cannot be unmindful of his guid- ance during the most critical war years. While some schools and universities gave up the struggle in the face of rock bot- tom enrollments, the University of Omaha not only continued but met the emergency by training more than six thousand men and women for important war jobs in the Glenn L. Martin plant and elsewhere. Other points of interest during the administration of Presi- dent Haynes include veteran's education and establishment of the Adult Testing and Guidance Center. President Haynes' influence will not stop with his retire- ment-he has planned for the years to come by setting forth a ten-year building program for even further expansion. . 785 Y ,ff CO OPERATION FOR PROGRESS Working hand-in-glovewith the president through the phases of expansion is the Board of Regents. The Board, which took over O. U.'s policy-making in janu- ary of 1951, has contributed much to the University's growth and development. Although it has done much since its very conception, there are several accomplish- ments that stand out above the rest. V The entrance of Omaha University into the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools, the present million-dollar plant, the proposed Field I-louse, the ten-year building program-all these projects have come about as the result of Board co-operation and planning. Probably the most recent enterprise of the Board was the selection of a suc- cessor to President Haynes. The Board reviewed a list of 121 applicants, chose Dr. Milo Bail, and in the same stroke elected Mr. Haynes president emeritus. In announcing the new president, Will R. johnson, president of the Regents, explained the Boards selection saying: "The Regents feel they have chosen not only a top ranking educator, but also an able administrator who will carry on the University's expanding program of service to students, civic, and business interests."

The Field Home In accordance with their expansion policy, the Boarcl of Regents and President Haynes have set up a ten-year building program to extend the present campus. Following are artist's sketches of the proposed buildings: PHE COMING DECADE This is the proposed Field House and physical education build- ing, which is number one on the building program. Its construction will permit athletic programs to be held on the campus instead of over the city. It will also provide much needed facilities for all student athletic activities. The Field House will accommodate 5,000 spectators. An equal number can be accommodated in the stadium seats attached to the east wall of the building. Second on the building program is the Library. Present in- adequate facilities do not allow the full use of the University's excellent general collection, for needed departmental libraries for advanced students, for adequate reading rooms, and the opportunity for graduate students to use the stacks. The proposed Library build- ing will enable this important department of the University to pro- vide a greater service to both students and faculty. The Library Applied Science This, the third unit in the building program, will be known as the Applied Science building. It will accommodate officers, labora- tories, and classrooms for the College of Applied Arts and Sciences and will relieve congestion in the present classroom structure. Its architecture will be similar to the present building, but without the tower. The Applied Sciences building will be located on the hill directly west of the Administration building. J rs.

The University of Omaha recognizes the importance of a building designed especially for -student use and has instructed its architects to include in its proposed Student Union a ballroom, ample food facilities, clubrooms, a lecture room with stage and screen facilities, lounges, and rooms for counselling and small group meetings.

Gilbert James, who served on the staff of Omaha University since 1919, passed away January 28 durinng a leave of absence. Since 1919, he has been acting head of the university on three different occasions, served as dean of the College of Fine Arts and Liberal Arts and has headed various departments. His death culminated many years of activity for the university. It was in the school year of 1926-27 that Dr. James first served as acting president. Then, in 1928 and again in 1930-31 he filled the president's chair. Although English and speech were his fields, he also taught logic, ethics, phil- osophy, American history, and sociology. Another contribution to the university was his founding of the Kappa Kappa Gamma chapter of Sigma Tau Delta, national honorary English fraternity. In 1945 Dr. james was made Professor Emeritus of Speech. .We honor Dr. james as one of the early active leaders and commend his long and memorable service at the Uni- versity of Omaha. G The Registrafs Office THE UNIVERSITY SERVICES The Deans' of Students Office The Placement Office The objective of any university is to turn out a citizen competently educated in his chosen field, confident of his ability to be successful, and capable of living harmo- niously with his fellow-man. The task is not an easy one. It calls for hard work and conscientiousness on the part of the faculty, and it requires a complex, but flexible, organization designed to help the student through his school years. This organization must see that the stu- dent is fed and comfortably sheltered. It must guard his health, keep records of his progress, advise him, guide him, and mold l him to fit into society. The faculty handles part of the job in the classroom. The rest of it falls to a num- T ber of other departments, known at the University of Omaha as the "services," The Dean of Students Office acts as the clearing house for campus activities outside the classroom. Dean john W. Lucas, Associate Dean Mary Padou Young and Assistant Dean Ormsby Harry have the responsibility of regulating and guiding the University's social life by supervising the activities of the fraternities, sororities, clubs and other groups. ln addition, it is their duty to monitor the students scholastic work and to advise and correct him if his grades are delinquent. Port,of entry for new students and frequent check point for undergraduates is the Registrars Office. Under the direction of Miss Alice C. Smith, the department is responsible for a complete record of each student from the moment he applies for admission to the day he ventures forth, diploma in hand. Also on the administrative end of the University services is the Business Office. Buried under a mountain of money matters, Finance Secretary Charles Hoff and his staff of eleven employes manage to collect all student fees, make out payrolls for all non-faculty workers and administrative personnel, do the University's purchasing, keep complete accounting records, oversee veterans' finances-in fact, control all finances connected with the University. While we're on the subject of money, it might be well to mention the Student Placement Office under the direction of john E. Woods. This service has been set up to aid students who want to earn extra money while going to school. Placement officials specialize in finding jobs for ambitious students on or off the campus, part- time, full-time, or during the summer. They are also eager to help the uncertain student choose a suitable vocation after graduation. A more specialized form of aid is available to the University's large veteran population. This help, con- sisting of advisement and training, is administered by the Veterans Administration Guidance Center, also under 7 as, 1 Q ' ...fx The Business Oflice The Library Supervised Study Center Veterans Administration Guidance Center the surveillance of Mr. Woods. The center, with headquarters in this school, keeps tab on all ex-servicemen in northeastern Ne- braska who are going to school under the G. I. Bill or are engaged in "on-the-job" training. With the advent of the veteran to the University after the war, an older segment of the population was added to the day-school enrollment, but the appearance of adults on the campus was certainly no innovation. . Omaha University has long been in the forefront of higher educational institutions offering a variety of courses to Working men and women who wish to augment their edu- cation. E. M. Hosman directs the School of Adult Education in which some 125 differ- ent courses are now being offered evenings for those who cannot attend regular day ses- sions. And what's more, ninety-five corres- pondence courses are available to those wishing to study at home in their spare time. The Supervised Study Center provides an opportunity for concentrated study in preparation for entrance into the Univer- sity's regular term. The student is allowed to work as fast as he wishes under the trained eye of full-time supervisors, headed by Mrs. J. E. Woods. The Center was organized primarily to help veterans discharged too late to enter classes. A number of services have been set up to facilitate the process of learning and help the student overcome adjustable handi- caps which might hamper his work.

Its shelves are crammed with 80,000 volumes of reference material, and it serves as the only depository in this region for some 15,000 government documents. In addition, there is a continuous influx of current magazines, newspapers and pamphlets. During the school year, the library is open to students from 7:45 a. m. to 9 p. m. under the supervision of Librarian Ellen Lord. To facilitate the student's classwork and help him get the most out of what the University has to offer, a variety of more personal services have been instituted. Foremost of these is the University Testing Bureau. Conducted by Dr. Claude E. Thompson, the bureau assists the student by analyzing, through tests and other techniques, his aptitudes, interests, and personality traits. It is available to any student on the recommendation of the Dean of Students. Closely related to the Testing Bureau is the individualized Counselling Service under the direction of john W. Lucas. Upon entering school, the student is assigned a counselor-a faculty member fa- miliar with the field in which the student has chosen to concentrate-who is qualified to give him vocational guidance and to aid him in choosing an appropriate program. Associated with student counselling are the Tutoring Service and the Reading Clinic. The former, under Mrs. E. Woods, teaches the student how to learn, the latter, under Miss Frances Wood, how to read. Both have proven their effectiveness. With proper tutoring, students have been known to raise their grade average from a dismal to a more-than-satisfactory And students who had never learned to read correctly increased their speed and comprehension amazingly. Let's turn now to that part of the University's organization responsible for the student's physical well-being. As is necessary in any community, Omaha University has a trained medical staff, headed by Dr. Maine C. Andersen, available at all times to the ailing student.

Plans were approved in the fall for the enlargement of building space which will give us in the future the Fieldhouse, Library, and Applied Arts Building for which we have waited so long. A new and beautiful Bookstore and a new Home Ec lab are also land- marks for this year's froshie class.

He decreed that all Big Chiefs and Warriors must first show their skill and athletic prowess in early morning softball and volleyball games. He called for a Redskin Revue to parade down Dodge Street and past Creighton as a symbol of spirit and in- genuity, at noon, The nnal test came in the afternoon of this great day. Tribal presentations displayed skills and talents designed to make the tribesmen smile and feel pride at their accomplishments. Five p.n1. found the Indians at the feast of the tribes in nearby Elmwood Reservation. The Ceremonial Dance at Peony Tepee was the Hnal gift of this generous god. At this time he gave high awards to the most skilled and wise braves and maidens, He named Phi Sig's float depicting Greek Indians first prize winner. To the Pi O's float showing the twelve months of the year he gave the runner-up award. A tie for third was awarded to Alpha Sig's Esquire Hoat and Theta's Old King Cole. Sig Chi's "Pictures in Song" skit was deemed best of the afternoon contests, with Phi Delt's "Bertram Comes Home in Time" second.

At Peony Park the Omaha Indians watched Prin- cess Pat, dressed in a white doeskin ceremonial gown, rise from a litter and step to the stage where Dean Lucas waited to place the Indian headdress on her royal head and present her with an engraved bracelet. Her attendents were twelve Warriors in full regalia. The first Homecoming game in five years was considered "no contest at all' by the happy fans. From the time the Indians first gained possession of the ball early in the opening period they were the complete masters. When the final whistle blew, the tribesmen looked with satisfaction at their score cards, their beaming princess, carrying a bouquet of roses, and pronounced Homecoming 1947 a success.

COFFEE HOUR Modern reasoning and political thinking Plus coffee and informal discussions add up to the weekly Coffee Hour. Started by Dr. Wilfred Payne, chairman of the humanities, these meetings for students and faculty members are designed to stimulate interest in current events. A panel composed of students and a faculty ad- visor, lead the weekly talks by suggesting possible variations to the theme being discussed. Among past topics have been "Are Hollywood Communists a Threat," "How Much Are We Willing to Save to Aid Europe," "Am I Reasonable," and "How Can College Promote Brotherhood." The Coffee Hour is just one more step at the Uni- versity of Omaha to make college students realize the responsibility that will soon be handed to them. BAXTER LECTURE The impact of the atomic age came to Omaha University when Dr. Chester Irving Barnard, a member of the five-man committee which drafted the Lilienthal report on atomic energy, presented the Baxter Lectures. In his two evening lectures, Dr. Barnard's topics were "Atomic Fission Under International Control," and "The Consequences of Atomic Energy Without That Control." He declared that university laboratories and both private and government concerns should be licensed and controlled, but allowed to develop power from non-explosive hssionable materials for peaceful uses. H Dr. Barnard further stated that there seems to be a "whats the use" attitude in this country, and that proper control would do away with most fears that plague people today. At his press conference in the Blackstone, where Gateway City Editor jack Carter represented Omaha University, the lecturer concluded: "The real problems confronting us today are moral ones. Tolerance and good will are the only things that will stop war." COMMUNITY CHEST Many sported red feathers 1 l i W W.S.S.F. The friendship train carrying goods for the World Student Service Fund grew longer as a result of Omaha University's generosity. Four large boxes of clothing, twenty-one shirts, and numerous textbooks were collect- ed during November's drive. Fifty-seven dollars was donated for the purchase of additional articles of clothing. Those who claimed that they would give the shirts off their backs for students in foreign lands proved it at a mass meeting outside the auditorium on the final day of the drive. Q. l Ill 1 l l l I l U w r 0 ll . l rl 4 A r durin Faculty and students topped last year's goal by contributing 5I131,200. g the week-long Community Chest drive in October. President of the Student Council joe Baker was director of the student collections and Don Nelson, Paul Titzell, Miss Ellen Lord, Mrs. Fern Seaberg and O. L. Harry handled faculty donations. SHARE HAYRACK VICTIMS FUND The hayrack party that started as a typical college outing ended in tragedy. When a speeding car struck the hayrack, the singing stopped, and hysteria swept the group. Fred Freelin who would have graduated this june was killed instantly. Shirley Ayres, Fred johnson and Robert Rummery all suffered fractures in the left leg. Adam Kirchofer and Marilyn Miller had both legs broken. Donna McFarland was in serious condition with a skull fracture. They all fortunately recovered, but the full effect of that catastrophe will be long remembered by Omaha U students. p Collections for the victims of the hayrack tragedy were swelled to 551,235 by thoughtful students and faculty members. A benefit program by Gay Nineties Singer Beatrice Kay added more to the growing fund. Sylvan Green and Del Courtney also gave of their time and talents for the auditorium performance. Peony Park ballroom was donated by its owner, Joseph Malec, for a benefit dance October 24 and approximately 800 attended. - MOST ELIGIBLE BACHELOR Phil Gleason, tall, blonde Alpha Sig, was elected Most Eligible Bachelor at the Bachelor's Ball given by Gamma Sigma Omi- cron sorority February 27. His gifts included a mop, bucket, and apron to help him keep a woman-less house- hold clean. He also received a gold key chain. The other candidates were Mort Kaplan, Beta Tau Kappa, and Bill Clark, Phi Sig. PEP RALLIES g The return of football to the campus, the formation of a marching band, and the inauguration of the Warriors, men's pep organization, were largely responsible for boosting school spirit at Omaha University to new heights this year. Outstanding example of this rejuvenated spirit was the Homecoming bonfire rally when students refused to be de- feated by a damp snowfall. Fans took refuge in the Pow Wow Inn and cheered the team on to what became a 39-O football victory over Sioux Falls. Toward the end of the basketball season, the Warriors offered free tickets for the parents' night basketball game to contestants in a Double or Nothing Quiz rally held in the auditorium on February 18. During athletic contests throughout the' year, the Feathers, Cheerleaders and the new band kept spectators cheering, win or lose, until the final gun. Long ballerina skirts and bright spring colors were featured among clothes worn by twenty models at the Intersorority Style Show in the Audi- torium February 18. Narrator Jeanne F inch described the outfits which were designed to show co-eds clothes to be worn from dawn to dusk, from campus to cocktails.

We now have the largest fraternity on the campus. In addition to this, however, the Alpha Sigs participated fully in the all-school Intramural sports program and other school-sponsored activities. The Alpha Sigs began this year with a unique social activity hailed as the most original of the year, an "Aquatic Hayride" on Carter Lake. The pledges sponsored the "Kickapoo joy juiceu dance which was held at the Birchwood Club. In keeping with tradition, the fraternity held the annual "Sweet- heart Dance" and the Founders Day Banquet for the active chapter and Alumni. One of Alpha Sigs special prides this year was the winning of the Inter- fraternity Scholastic Cup for having the highest scholastic average among fraternities on the campus last year.

These words nll the air at every Gamma meeting. However, Gammas extend their devotion to their university as well. Gammas are active in Feathers, Home Economics Club, W.A.A., Chem- istry Club, Debate Squad, French Club, Sigma Pi Phi, Gateway, Tomahawk, and Cheerleaders, and are represented on the Deans' Honor Roll. In the field of sports, the sorority won the volleyball championship in Intramural competi- tion, and Ma-ie Day of '47 found them presented with the baseball award. The sorority began the current year's activities with the annual tea at the Fontenelle Hotel. The Emerald Terrace rush party at the Paxton followed, and the pledge banquet was held at the Birchwood Club. An overnight trip to Camp Brewster brought Gammas in contact with the great outdoors. During Christmas vacation, the sorority held its annual tea. The pledges were co-hostesses with other Greeks at the "Winter Whirl" at Peony Park in December. At the "Bachelors' Ball" on February OMICRON 27, the Gammas took advantage of Leap Year tra- dition to elect the "Most Eligible Bachelor," and to pay homage to the gentlemen. This dance, held at the Birchwood Club, was preceded by a dinner for members and their dates. Second semester pledges received their pins at a preference banquet at the Wellington Hotel, Feb- ruary 20. A formal candlelight initiation took place March 14. At the executive reins for the first semester were La Von Shugart, president, Lorraine Borge- son, vice president, Lois Bruening, secretary, and Helen Underwood, treasurer. During' the second semester, Lois Brady served as president, Ruth Jorgenson, vice president, Caro- lyn Lewellen, secretary, Lois Bruening, treasurerg Judy Rutherford, page, and Lucille Gollehon, cour- tesy chairman.

TOMAHAWK The preparation of a yearbook such as the Tomahawk is no easy matter! Take it from Pat Roessig, editor of the 1948 edition. However, according to Pat, the results have been gratifying-and truly repre- sentative of a year's activities at the University of Omaha. Miss Roessig, assisted by three associate editors, Dorothy McGrath, Lois Brady, and Brad Field, and Business Manager A. Dale Agee, began early in the first semester to select a staff and compile data for the publication. That staff, upon whose willing shoulders most of the work was thrown, is listed below. That data, assembled and edited, is your 1948 Tomahawk.

Under the leader- ship of Harold Poff, the first semester editor-in-chief, the Gateway expanded from six to eight pages weekly and stepped up its circulation to 2,000 in order to meet the swelled enrollment. Also inaugurated during the first semester was a ,new Gateway service called the "Flash Bulletin." The bulletin enabled the Gateway to scoop other Omaha news services with news too hot to wait for the weekly paper. By means of the Flash Bulletin it was pos- sible to circulate news of an event within two hours of its occurrence. Along with the increased -size and service of the Gateway came a need for more adequate space. Accordingly, the GATEWAY offices were doubled, the new addition being dubbed the "city room." When Harold Poff retired from the staff at the end of the Hrst semester, jack Carter, who had served as city editor, took over the Gateway steering wheel, and the expansion continued. Carter's first problem as editor-in- chief was a Hnancial one. Additional money was needed immediately in order to continue publication of an eight-page weekly. Carter presented his problem to A. D. Agee, the Gateway's business manager, who carried it to the Board of Student Publications with all the necessary facts and figures. The Publi- cations Board passed the recommenda- tion for more funds on to the Student Council, which approved the increase. A few weeks later the appropriation was made official by the Faculty Committee and the presidentg and the Gateway went back to eight pages. But perhaps the greatest second sem- ester gain was the remodeling of the Gateway offices. The new room was joined to the old by a door, and the editor-in-chief, business manager, and Tomahawk editor were each presented with a private office. The city room was blessed with a newspaper necessity called "the horse shoe," the large desk where most of the copyreading is done. All in all, the Gateway did a good job in keeping pace with the rest of the university in this year's expansion and improvement.

COLOSSIANS 2:3 1 THE CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP Our purpose is to provide fellowship for interested students through a weekly Bible study. The activities of the Christian Fellowship this year included the sending of 150 lbs. of clothing to European students, the conducting of a weekly Bible study, participa- tion in the Nebraska Regional Christian Fellowship Conference, and several social activities throughout the year. Miss Leta Holley and Harry Rice are the faculty advisers. The local chapter is a member of the Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship, an organization now functioning upon 200 university campuses. , -mx . X kj DELTA BETA PHI As the first complete commerce fraternity on the campus, Delta Beta Phi began its existence December 4, 1947. The fraternity began organizing in October, 1947. In that month, after conferences with Dean john W. Lucas, an organizing committee composed of A. D. Agee, Glen C. Appleby, Bruce Chevalier, F. Alec Phillips, Harry P. jassman, and james Hergert was formed. Phillips was named chairman of the temporary committee and Agee, secretary. During the months of November and December, a struggle to become organized in such a manner as to be able to affiliate with a national commerce fraternity began. Iassman, assisted by Hergert, Appleby, and Byron Miller, presented a constitution, based on the national chapters at the Universities of Nebraska and Creighton and the national commerce constitution, embodying the principles of all three. At the same time Russell Bakke, asisted by Prank Rathbun, drew a plan of business and professional meet- ings. The constitution and plan were adopted and transmitted to the Student Council for consideration. After having passed the constitution and forwarded it to the Faculty Committee on Student Affairs, the council recalled their previous action, at the demand of a minority, in order to review it. This action was prompted by demands of certain groups to force Delta Beta Phi to remove certain restrictive clauses. After long debate, the council again passed the constitution. Because of the strong feeling on both sides of the issue, the committee of Delta Beta Phi voluntarily and without direction offered to remove the clause in question and operate as a local in order that Delta Beta Phi could put into effect its program of pro- fessional and business objectives. Such approval was obtained on December 4, 1947, and the first meeting was held on that date. Officers elected were president, Glen Appleby, vice president, james Hergert, secre- tary, A. D. Agee, treasurer, Harry Jassman, historian, F. Alec Phillips. Delta Beta Phi has held one professional and one business meeting per month since organization. Sponsors chosen were Paul Crossman and George Rayburn.

SIGMA PI PHI Sigma Pi Phi, Omaha University's honorary edu- cational fraternity, is devoted to the advancement of the interests of students in the Department of Educa- tion. In order to fulfill this purpose, the fraternity's regular monthly meetings featured discussions on various topics pertinent to the field of education. A Coffee I-Iour and an all-school barn dance were the social highlights of the year. Officers of the organization were Willa Dean Andersen, president, Wentworth Clarke, vice presi- dentg Alice Mae Smith, secretary, and Clayton Han- son, treasurer. Miss Frances Wood is faculty sponsor for the group. . BETA TAU KAPPA During its first year as a reorganized fraternity, Beta Tau Kappa concentrated on building up its new, post war chapter. As there were no actives on the campus during the first semester, reorganization was done entirely by sixteen pledges who were initiated during the second half of the year. The groups social activities included smokers and a barn dance. , ASL S SQA: 1 fx I V "-'SAN - - 1 a e a n B.T.K.'s active in campus activities include jay Chasen, cheerleader, Fred Scheuermann, Gateway cartoonist, Morton Kaplan and Jay Chasen, Warriors.

Members took part in numerous practice debate tournaments, several judged debate and speaking contests, and three convocation debates were held before the Omaha U. student body. Speech tournaments such as the Kearney, Wes- leyan, and Omaha University Invitationalsg the Mid- West and Pi Kappa Delta regional tournaments fat Nebraska University and Fort Collins, Colo., re- spectivelyj, and the sponsorship of the Invitational Tournament for the Omaha high schools, were high points on the list of the year's activities. Assisting the sponsor, C. Loyd Shubert, in fratern- ity affairs were Robert Neujahr as president, Bradley Field as vice president, and Eileen Wolfe as secretary- treasurer. OMICRON Though the efforts of Bill Fear, the "Warriors," men's pep organization, came into existence during the spring of 1947. The Hrst "Warrior" activity resulted in a highly spirited football bon-fire on the eve of the Omaha- Greeley game. The group's other activities include the sponsoring and financing of transportation to the various athletic events, ushering at auditorium func- PI OMICRON tions, half-time entertainment during the football and basketball games, and helping to promote an increase in school spirit.

The club is open to any engineering student and to any student interested in the field. The club is valuable to students in that it acquaints them with the various phases of engineer- ing through lectures, tours, and movies. These projects are the correlation between the classroom sub'ects and the ractical a lication in industr. J P PP Y The wide seo e of the ro ram is shown b this P P 8 Y year's activities which included excursions to KOH. Radio Tower, Bell Telephone, and Omaha Steel Works. On the social side, the engineers have enjoyed a stag party, a banquet, and a theater party. Officers for the fall semester were Jorgensen, Jr., president, John Beales, vice president, Galen Kelly, secretary, and George Bighia, treasurer. Spring semester officers were John Beales, president, Jorgensen, Jr., vice president, Robert Chester, secre- tary, and Galen Kelly, treasurer. The sponsors of the club are R. O. Benecke, W. Kurtz, C. H. Prewett, and H. P. Stearns. WOMEN'S ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION On a chilly September evening, the Wo1nen's Athletic Association, a branch of the National and the Nebraska State Athletic Federation of College Woriien, started its activities for the year with a weiner roast at Elmwood Park honoring its new members. During the first semester, the W.A.A. sponsored women's intramural sports which included field hockey, volley ball, badminton and soccer.

INDEPENDENTS Unaffiliated students seeking new friends, social activities, and an increased share in school affairs found a good measure of these things in the 1947- 1948 Independents organization. Monthly parties, bi-monthly business meetings, and participation in school elections attracted fifty-six members to the club. . Carrying on in its capacity as the nucleus for unaffiliated activities, Independents sponsored many successful candidates for school offices. Charlotte Dawson brought fame to the "barbs" when she was awarded second place in the annual Tomahawk Beauty Contest. On the social side of things, activities were varied, with the year's events including a Sadie Hawkin's Day Square Dance in November, a combi- nation dance and skating party during the winter holiday season, and an afternoon "get acquainted" tea in February. Bradley Field, president, joe Dymak, vice presi- dent, Eileen Wolfe, secretary, and Lloyd Metheny,, treasurer, were officers for the first semester, while those heading the second semester group included Field as president, Fred Barson as vice president, Lois Melchior as secretary, and Elinor Stastny as treasurer. Williain Henry and Don Nelson were Independents sponsors for the year. f 1, If M- VI.: v 'ta ,F w : . M. ,gf -va AT THE HELM Virg Yelkin is in his second year as Director of Athletics and Physical Education for men at the university. He has been successful in getting football back on its feet after a five year lay-off period. An alumnus of Nebraska U. where he played under D. X. Bible as an end on '33, '34, and '36 football teams, he was also a member of the '33 basketball team at N.U. and was named to the A.A.U. Midwest Cham- pions in '36, Besides his duties as overseer of athletics, Yelkin is head baseball coach. The university is ready to enter its second full athletic year since 1942 with Virg Yelkin at the helm. MEN WHO MAKE OU ATHLETICS CLICK . . . HAROLD JOHNK . . . Head Baikefball Coach Harold Iohnk left a wide gap in Omaha U. athletic plans when he announced his resignation to President Haynes last February 24. One of O.U.'s greatest athletes, johnk said he intended to leave the teaching and coaching profession to go into business. johnk earned 12 letters at Omaha-four each in football, basketball and track. From 1938 to '42 he served as freshman coach in foot- ball, basketball and track. He entered the Navy in '42 and upon receiving his discharge returned to take over the basket- ball reins for the '45-'46-'47 campaign. DON PFLASTERER . . . Arrirtant Basketball Coarb Pflasterer has just finished his second year as "B" team football and basketball coach. He is another O.U. athletic great. He made the headlines for three years in football, basketball, and track. Besides being named All-Conference halfback for two years, he was chosen the outstanding con- ference athlete in 1941. Credit for the success of Intramurals may be given Pflasterer who is in charge of the inner-school function. ERNIE GORE . . . Arfiffafzf Coarb ' Ernie is the newest addition to the athletic staff and its third Nebraska U. alumnus. He has 12 years of varied coach- ing and instructing experience in Nebraska high schools behind him, having coached in seven sports. In at least two of these sports, Gore's teams have achieved notable successes. His football squads at Nebraska City and Bridgeport won conference championships. In basketball during his dozen years of coaching, his teams have won more than two-thirds of their games. In addition to teaching physical education, Gore is also football end coach. LLOYD CARDWELL . . . Football and T 1-aria Coach It was Lloyd Cardwell's job to guide Omaha University in its postwar return to intercollegiate football competition. His 1947 grid squad, the first in five years, laid a strong founda- tion for future Indian football teams. This year's team im- proved with every game, climaxing its season with a 19-6 upset of highly rated Greeley QColo.j Teachers. Cardwell, besides being an all-time Nebraska great, gained valuable coaching experience by tutoring the Detroit Pro Lions backfield in 1941. He was all-conference halfback for two years when he played with the Lions. This is his second year as track coach. aff far Bill Green gets outstanding blocking to -score against Sioux Falls FOOTBALL RETURNS TO O.U.

Nebraska Wesleyan Missouri State Teachers Morningside Western Union Sioux Falls Wasliburn Doane Colorado State THE TEAM Omaha University rang down the curtain on its first grid season since before the war this year. And the ending bids fair for future Indian football teams, because only one man will be lost by gradua- tion from the squad. Omaha improved with every game, functioning as a smooth unit in the season's last game against Greeley QColo.j Teachers. They upset the highly regarded Rocky Mountain bunch 19-6 at Benson in the mud and snow. - The Indians' season record of two wins, five losses, and a tie was made against some of the better small schools in this sector. This year the Omaha Athletic Staff had one purpose in getting back into inter-collegiate football. It knew the Indians would win few games, but the staff also realized that a foundation would be laid for the grid years to come. And from the looks of the Omaha team in their final showing against Greeley, the 1947 season was a step in the right direction. - The Omaha U. football team in its opener got off to a shaky start. Playing against Nebmfka Wefleyazz, a bowl team the preceding year with 21 lettermen in the fold, the Indians were beaten 21-7. They held the Wesleyan team to a 7-7 tie for nearly two quarters before the final two touchdown surges. Ma1'y1zille Missouri Teazrhen spoiled Omaha's try for the win column the following week down at Maryville. It was 26-0 against Omaha, but the statistics improved. Don Gorman missed the game be- cause of injuries suffered against Wesleyan.

In their first game before a home audience the Indians showed a vast improvement over the two preceding weeks. 3,500 O.U. partisans turned out for the battle. Bill Green, Frank Catania and Buddy Abboud sparked the drive. Archie Arvin, shifty end, set up the score. After Green punted 52 yards and the Maroon safety fumbled the ball, Arvin recovered for Omaha on the 10, and Green swept around end for the touchdown. The line backing of Russ Gorman and George Madelen was outstanding for Omaha. Ends Hugh Jackson and Bob Shober and Quarterback joe Arenas also drew praise from Head Football Coach Lloyd Cardwell. In their fourth game the Indians outplayed their opponents, WeJ!errz.Unio1z College of Le Mars, but were held to a 7-7 deadlock. Omaha scored early in the second quarter. A short Western Union punt went out of bounds on the Iowans 40 yard line. Bill Green started an O.U. attack that drove to the 19. From there Fred Abboud found a hole through right tackle and went the 19 yards for a score. Charlie Mancuso, aggressive guard, and Bob Young, fleet wingback, were co-captains for the Red- skins fourth tilt. Homecoming fans got a big treat when Omaha met Sioux F4115 at Benson on the following Saturday afternoon. They sat in near perfect weather and watched while their team battered a hapless Sioux Falls team 39-O. The first time they got their hands on the ball they scored. Led by Bill Green they marched 62 yards to pay dirt, He went the last three yards through a hole in the right side of the line big enough to drive a truck through. On the first play of the second half Franky Catania threw 35 yards to End Bob johnson on the six. Catania went over from there on the next play. Don Gorman got the third tally on a 12 yard jaunt that climaxed a drive from the Omaha 43 where End Thor Strimple recovered a fumble. Early in the third quarter Green faded to the Dakotans 30 yard line and threw to End Archie Arvin who grabbed it on the 15 and outraced the secondary to the goal. A Don Gorman conversion made it 26-0. Masterful blocking produced the fifth touchdown. Frank Catania took the ball on the visitor's 18 and went over the goal untouched. There wasn't a Sioux Falls man on his feet to watch the score. Gorman added a placement to bring the score to 33-0. Hugh jackson wound up scoring activities for the after- noon when he pulled a Catania lob out of the clouds in the end zone. The Omaha footballers, in playing their best game to date, went down before uycllhbflfll two weeks Franz ro-ws Flecky, Cronin, Weekes, Stedman, Woods, Mercurio, Barritt, Caffrey, Bathen and C. Fitz.

Coach Lloyd Cardwell said the Ichabods were probably the strongest eleven the Omahans had met. One point was the margin that defeated a stubborn, determined Omaha team down at Crete. Doane edged us 7-6. The Indian score came after Wingback Bob Anderson intercepted a pass on his own 37 and ran it back 17 yards to the Doane 46. A sustained drive carried to the two. Then Green threw low to End Bob johnson who fielded the pitch and dragged two Doane men over the goal line with him. The Indians waited until their final game to shoot the works. In pre-game dope Greeley fCola.j Teafherr were favored by 20 points. The score was Omaha 19-Greeley 6. - In the second period after the only Colorado tally, Green passed to Archie Arvin on the 18 and Arvin twisted and squirmed into the end zoney The score stood 6-6. In the third stanza 6'5" Stonewall jackson got hold of a Frank Catania jump pass on the two. He was smothered by three Bear defenders. It took Freddie Abboud three line bucks to cover the re- maining couple of yards. just before the third period whistle and fourth down on the Greeley 35, Freddie Abboud disregarded football etiquette and, instead of kicking, ran 35 yards for the final score. Gorman closed scoring for the game and the season with a perfect conversion. FOOTBALL BAN A banquet honoring the 1947 Omaha University football team was held in the Auditorium December 1. Football lettermen, coaches, and head cheerleaders from Omaha and Council Bluffs high schools helped university students and Omaha citizens honor the team. Approximately 400 attended the banquet. Tug Wilson, commissioner of the Big Nine, was the featured speaker. Clarence Kirkland, chairman of the Omaha Parks and Recrea- tion Commission, acted as toastmaster. President Haynes expressed his gratitude to the team and the coaching staff for the work they had done and the record they made in -their hrst year of football since 1942. Red Mueller, the football official who refereed both the first and last games Omaha U. played, described the progress of the team as "truly amazing." Another high point of the occasion was the presentation of the football used in the Greeley, Colo., game autographed by O.U. play- ers and coaching staff, to Frank Catania, only graduating player. A surprise of the evening was a recording from the college at Greeley on which O. L. Troxel, faculty head of Colorado State's athletic board, introduced the football coach, a tackle, and an end on their team. They complimented Omaha U. football players on their fine playing. The coach described O.U.'s passing in the game here as "nothing short of phenomenal." Frank Heinisch, chairman of the Regents' Athletic Committee, praised the team in his talk, "The Regents Look Ahead." In "Football at the University," Hugh jackson reviewed the ups and downs of the past season. A floor show included a jam session by Jack Feierman and his combo, dancing by Beverly Nielson, community songs, and a battle of the cheerleaders. Omaha's band also played. The banquet was sponsored jointly by the Regents' Committee on Athletics, the Alumni Association, Warriors, Feathers, and Cheerlead- ers. The Faculty Committee on Athletics acted as host. QUET 92.0 l l , l Chasen, Prather, McKeown and Borland. Noi pirlmed, Peggy Smith. Omaha U. cheerleaders gave school spirit a boost through their activities this year. The 1947-48 pep squad was chosen by the Feathers and,Warriors before the foot- ball season began. The team led cheers at all home football games played at Benson Stadium and basketball tilts at the Tech High Gym. Working with the banquet committee the group helped to make the university's first Football Banquet a success. The cheerleaders also contributed their pep and spirit to the Colorado bonfire rally and to the basketball convocation. V The pep team, led by jay Chasen, closed the season with the Omaha U-Creighton basketball game on February 25 at the Bluejays' gym. Other team members included Peggy Smith, Rosie Mclieown, James Borland, and Dolores Prather. Two new yells were Written by Cheerleaders Dolores Prather and jay Chasen.

The University of Omaha lost its head basketball coach this year. The able and amiable Harold johnk resigned to go into business. Before quitting the coaching pro- fession, however, johnk gave the school something to build on in future years. Johnk started the season with but six of sixteen lettermen boasting any kind of col- lege experience, and only three of them having more than one year. No man will be lost by graduation this year, however. The Indians, while winning seven games, were beaten 13 times. Five of these losses were by five points or less. And the Omaha basketballers were playing against such teams as Regis of Denver, Creighton, and South Dakota-all members of the select big time basketball crowd. In spite of no practice site on their own campus the Indians did remarkably well, rolling up 988 points, an average of a frac- tion under 50 points a contest. Freshman Frank Slogr took scoring hon- ors away from Mike Landman who had cap- tured them the two previous years. Rookie Slogr's 207 points average slightly over ten a contest. Landman was second with 168, and Glen Richter followed with 122. THE SEASON'S HIGHLIGHTS: We lost the season opener to Warbbzzrn 38-72, playing on the huge Topeka floor. Landman got 13 points as 15 Indians saw action. Wayne was beaten 51-42 for the first O.U. victory. Ray Schmidt, fancy Omaha play-maker, was good for 13 points. Hard- working Rog Sorensen racked-up 11. lWa.rhl7nrn made it two straight over Omaha 55-45, only after a terriiic drive in the last ten minutes. Landman had ten points-Slogr and Sorensen each seven. Two rookies-a short and a tall-paced the Redskins to a 49-44 win over Morningficle. Yambor, 5'8" and Slogr, 6'4" pulled the game out of the fire in the waning minutes. O.U. scored 22 points in the last ten minutes. In a tournament over the Christmas vaca- tion we set a scoring record by beating Mirfozzri Valley 78-63 for third place. We were beaten in the first round by Colorado College 45-54. Slogr got 12 points in each game. A high powered offense rolled past Werlerrz Union 63-49, for the fifth win in nine starts. Lou C1ure's play stood out. Glen Richter re- turned to form. Omaha was edged in a photo l finish 53-51 by Nebrarka Wesleyan. Richter got 12 as teammates missed 22 of 31 gratis shots. Omaha got back into the win column by beating Midland and then Morningrirle. The scores were 63-61 and 44-42. Both games were pulled out of the fire in the closing seconds. Fitch scored the winning goal for the Morningside conquest with 13 seconds remaining. Creighton ran off with the city title 49-37. Little Buddy Yambor stood out for his fine job of guard- ing C.U.'s highly touted Pinky Knowles. Regis of Denver finished the sea- son for the Redskins with 84-51 and 59-36 defeats. Regis was also a winner over Creighton. Lupe joe Arenas was one of the bright spots in the two losses. l BASKETBALL SCHEDULE Omaha XOmaha Omaha afOmaha tk Omaha Omaha Omaha Z2Omaha ?kOmaha Omaha Omaha Omaha Omaha Omaha Omaha i4Omaha gOmaha Omaha Omaha Omaha 38 51 45 49 39 44 45 78 63 50 52 51 54 40 58 65 44 37 51 36 1947-48 Washburn Wayne Washburn Morningside Nebraska Wesleyan North Dakota Colorado College Missouri Valley Western Union Simpson Midland Nebraska Wesleyan South Dakota Western Union Simpson Midland Morningside Creighton Regis College Regis College Fran! row, left lo right: Lynn Miller, jim Guffey, Pat Wilcox, Russ Gorman, Bob Walker and Bob Adams.

HOCKEY The Omaha University hockey team-entered in the Omaha Amateur Hockey League as an extra- mural sport, started in whirlwind fashion but finished at a snail's pace. The Ice Indians won three of their first four games. Included in that streak was a 5-2 triumph over the eventual league champs-Hfzrveyf. Following that win, the Ice Indians dropped a couple of close tiffs, then fell completely out of the race. The University kids lost 7-8 straight after that early 3 out of 4 mark. The plight was bad. Once, towards the tail end of the season, only three spares were available for a game against Harveys. Lynn Miller, and the Townsend brothers-John and Al-were the steadiest performers for the Ice Indians throughout the year. Goalie Russ Gorman deserves credit, too. His record would have been better with alittle more help on defense. In final regular season standings, O.U. finished in last place in the four-team circuit. But it's better to reminisce about the early season-when the team ranked up on top in a tie for the lead.

Showers caused cancellation of the first carded meet at Midland and kept O.U. tracksters out of two other contests. The Omahans wound up par- ticipating in three triangular and two dual meets. Inter-collegiate competition opened at home April 22. The Indians allowed their guests WaJbba1'n Ufziverrily and Simpfwz Callege to amass 78y2 and 69M respectively and claimed only BM, for themselves. Omaha's total came on seven markers from track and six and a quarter from field events. A - One week later Coach Lloyd Cardwell's squad had a long afternoon in Lincoln. The Plainsmen of Nebraska Wesleyan downed the Red and Black in a dual meet, 95M to 3851, The Indians' best marks were three firsts in the high jump, discus, and mile relay. In a triangular with Simprofz and Cemfral College the Omahans 35V2 points were good for second place. Simpson grabbed 1105 and Central, 26. On the O.U. oval the Indians took second against Werleyazz and Midland. Omaha 44, Wesleyan 96w, and Midland 2921. Creiglalofz Uni11erJi1fy'J 67M points were just four better than Omaha's 63V2 to win the dual meet and end the season.

Omaha U. opened its first season in baseball with a victory over the Maroons of Morningfide College. The Iowans fell before Indian sluggers, 16-14. With one win under their belts the Omahans went on through the sea- son to chalk up four other triumphs in 11 starts. Coached by Athletic Director Virg Yelkin the Indian nine downed Washburn Unioerrily twice and took Weftern Union College in two contests. In later matches Morningside and W'n.rhburn'f Icbnbodr refused to ac- cept defeat. They bounced back to ta e one and two conquests respec- tively over the Redskins. Omaha's initial loss came in the season's second game when N6b1'dJ,6d Unioeriityir B squad took advantage of Indian errors to grab a 5-0 victory. The Yelkinmen finished their schedule against the Creigloton Blue- jayf. With an earlier win over the Indians, the downtowners swept the second of the two game series to capture the city s college baseball crown.

The linksters' new tutor started the season off by conducting an all-school Golf Tournament April 11 and 12 to pick his squad. When the 36-hole play was completed over the Indian Hills course, these men had captured berths on the team: Don Moucka, Dick Irwin, Chet Stefanski, Ray Nelson, Bill jacobus, and Bill Enholm. The team took a win in their first match from Midland College over the Fremont Country Club layout. It was a ZIVZ to ly! victory for the Omahans. They went on through their schedule with a record of eight triumphs and three losses. Against Morzzingfide of Sioux City the Indians chalked up one win and one defeat. They gained double victories over both Doane College and Nebrfzfka Wefleyarz Ufziwerfity and a second win against Midland. Campbells squad lost to Wbrbbuwz and two close MM to IZMZ and 14-13 contests 'to Creighton. DICK IRWIN Kneeling: Golf Coach johnny Campbell.

A HAROLD HLAD TENNIS An all-school Tennis Tournament got the racket sport underway last spring. As the result of the three-day tourna- ment, Neal Walker and jerry Meyers gained places along- side veteran squad members Harold Hlad, George Reinhardt, jim Trotter, and Bob jorgenson on Coach Johnny Tatom's team. The Omaha U. netsters dropped their opening match of the year to Midland 6-3 at Fremont. Their first win came the following day at Sioux City in a tussle with Morfzirzgride. Omaha dropped the Maroons 4-3. An April 29 defeat by I-Varbbzmz U. didn't keep the Indian squad down for long. They bounced back with a 4-2 triumph over the Doane Tigerr three days later. A second meeting with the Crete school ended in a 3-3 tie. The Indians swept five single matches to avenge their earlier Midland defeat 5-2. Morfzifzgride had revenge on their minds too when they turned the tables on the Omahans in a second meeting 4-2. Creighton U. took a 4-3 match from the Redskins on May 6 and grabbed another win May 20 to wind up the season for the Omahans.
