Che! of fke frig igredivlenf Wil, gui! we new Aa ein... When the University of Omaha began, there were thirty-some student and faculty, now there is a combined enrollment of 3,2-200. Since its beginning forty-one years ago, the University has gained strength and recognition. But the trail of progress is a never ending one. To lead the University on its continued march, there has come a man, in years not much older than the University itself. This man, youthful both in appearance and attion, is Dr. Milo Bail. For the past twenty years, Dr. Bail has been associated with teaching both in high schools and colleges. He holds a doctors degree from the University of Iowa. Before assuming the presif dency here at the University, he was Dean of the College of Edu- :ation at Butler University, one of the most progressive universities in the country. The forty-nine year old President has assumed his new posi- tion with one idea foremost in mind-progress. Progress for the University and for the students and faculty. He completed arrange- ments for the four year program in Retailing, which works in close cooperation with the downtown merchants. Then there was the four year program in Writing fjournalismj that was established . . . the first real Homecoming . . . in the strict sense of the word . . . the expansions of Home Economics and Chemistry Departments. 11 was 5 ,.,.4 . is ggggw S WW 5.7, The new President has taken active interest, not only in executive operation, but also in the part the student plays. He has met the student at coffee hours and at the president's conferences, always willing and anxious to dis- cuss their problems. In his talks with the students, one signifi- cant point will be remembered-that the object of the University is to produce a person who will be an honest, upright, responsible citizen. In Dr. Bail's own wordssto produce a person who can "pay his own freight." As he stepped into the academic and building programs, so has Dr. Bail stepped into the athletic programs. Expansion has quickly followed. For the first time in its history, Omaha University had an intercollegiate wrestling team. An avid sports fan, Dr. Bail has been present at most of the home football and basketball games, the pep rallies and has taken part in many half-time ceremonies. The initials M.B. stand for progress in every phase of college life. ll ll lgrefaiolenf gamer-ifud EOLUKCLH 61 .il6lgl'1,0.'5 Ad QI" Jfelfkf Olflllfl, . . . June, 1948, meant graduation for seniors at the University, and it was the last commencement exercise in which Rowland Haynes was an ac- tive participant. Here he receives his tloctor's degree from the late Will johnson, Board of Regents' President. President Milo Bail first visited the O.U. campus during the sum- mer of 1948. Official receptions were given at the University to allow both the faculty and the student hotly Il chance to meet the man who was to he their new Presitlcnt. During the thirteen years Mr. Haynes served his University as President, many im- portant improvements came to pass. ln 1936, the campus moved from 24th and Pratt to its new million dollar home at 60th and Dodge. Through the efforts of its President, the University was admitted to the North Central Association in 1939 and two years later was accepted by the Association of American Universities. Under his leadership, the School of Adult Educa- tion was established in 1938, the two separate colleges in 1940 and the Technical Institutes only four years later. During the war years, the University trained more than six thousand persons for work in the Glenn l.. lwartin plant as well as for other war industries. Wliile Mr. Haynes held office, enrollment increased 350 percent and the tiaculty, 100 percent. The University is indebted to its President Emeritus 1- -a debt which it can pay only through progress in the future. 15 Q 95' 63 x my mgenffi ana! .xgfumni . . .

For the previous two years, Mr. Newberry had been Vice President and also chairman of the Faculty and Student Relations Com- mittee. Since joining the board in 1944, he had also served on the Future Program Com- mittee and the Finance Committee. Mr. Newberry has been generous in tak- ing time from his many civic and professional activities to guide Omaha University's govern- ing body. mf IQ ,Q.,r,,,.,,. The death of Will R. johnson on Novem- ber 19, 1948, took the President and long time member of the University's Board of Regents. Much of the University's expansion and growth took place during the time Mr. Johnson served on the board, and particularly during his term as President. On November 18, 1942, he attended his first Board of Regents meeting, and six years later, to the day, he attended his last. On November 19, he died of a cerebral hemorrhage. The sentiments of the entire school were expressed in this resolution of the Regents. "Mr. johnson served this institution with dis- tinction to himself and enduring profit to it, he served all other civic organizations with which he had been associated. He will long be remembered and revered as an outstanding Regent ot' this University and citizen of this community." eruing you now.. Latest of the Board of Regents contributions to the growth and development of Omaha Uni- versity is its endorsement of two recent legislative bills which will help the University to attract and keep better members of its faculty. One of the bills makes provisions for student and faculty housing and a student union, and the other provides for bettering retirement benefits and disability insurance for the faculty and employees of the University. The Board, which has been in charge of University policy making since the school became muni- cipally owned in 1931, is composed of Omaha businessmen. Throughout their 18 years, the Board has cooperated and planned with University authorities. Some of the results of these plans are the present million-dollar plant, the rapidly-progressing Fieldhouse construction, the ten-year building program and the entrance of Omaha University into the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools. Present officers of the group are Farrar Newberry, president, Herbert Marshall, Eaton Metal Products Corporation, vice president, and Mrs. Iohn H. Bath, secretary. Other members include Mr. W. H. Campen, Omaha Testing Laboratories, Mr. George C. Pardee, Metropolitan Utilities District, Mr. Ray R. Ridge, Omaha National Bank, Mr. V. Skutt, United Benefit Life Insurance Company, Mr. Robert H. Storz, and Mr. W. Dean Vogel, Live Stock National Bank. Left zo rigbt: Williriin Campen, George Pardee, Mrs. Mary Bath, Ray R. Ridge, Farrar Newberry, Robert Storz, V. J.

Sttimple for 28 years. Mrs. Strimple, who is now on a six-month leave of absence from the post of Executive Alumni Secretary, grad- uated from the University in 1919 and two years later became President of the Alumni Association. Since then, she has been connected with alumni activities in various capacities, includ- ing a term as President of the Alumni Board ot Directors. In August of 1944, as Executive Secretary, Mrs. Strimple opened the first Alumni Office in the University. In addition to her alumni activities, Mrs. Strimple has worked constantly to promote the position and welfare of the University. Hers has been a long and memorable term of service. redivlenf Herbert Story, 1929 graduate, served five apprenticeship years before taking over as President of the Alumni Board of Directors this year. Last year, before stepping into the Presi- dency, Mr. Story was the group's Vice Presi- dent. During his term, he took time out from duties with his law firm of Swarr, May, Royce, Smith and Story to handle the Alumni Asso- ciation membership drive. This year, as President, Mr. Story heads a 20-man board which formulates and co- ordinates Alumni Association activities. Other officers of the Board of Directors are Eldridge Scurr, vice presidentg Mrs. Jessie T. Jones, recording secretary, and Mrs. Robert Wilson, treasurer. Under this leadership, a new and more vigorous Alumni Association program is tak- ing shape. curving you a fer gracluafion . . . Room 310-B is the focal point of the Alumni Association activities on the Omaha U. campus. Better known as the Alumni Office, it is under the present direction of joan Sorenson, acting Executive Secretary and is a direct contact between the University and Omaha University alumni. February 24. 1949, the association ended its year-long search for a school fight song at a con- vocation-pep rally. Oliver Joiner's song was picked by a student vote from a held of five finalists. The Alumni Office, together with the Gateway, contributed a S100 prize to the winner. Other activities headed by the Alumni Office this year included a membership drive, two dinner meetings and an Alumni Dance honoring this year's graduating class. Still on tap is an Achievement Day and Reunion Dinner to be held june 6. In addition to social and business activities, the Alumni Office publishes an Alumni Gateway once a month, keeps a file of all alumni and former students, and takes charge of the Founder's Day festivities. Through the work of this office and its members, a vital interest in the progress and achieve- ments of the University are stimulated and maintained.

XxX ,.,, Q N ,1,. ,K ' . , Q NNW G" " ia id fhe gow The words "Home Game" on the fall Omaha sports schedule will mean just that when the Indians begin their basketball season. As the Tomahawk was completed, the cagers planned to be playing on the portable basketball court in the University Fieldhouse. The court is 50 feet wide, 94 feet long -college regulation E and is modeled after the Madison Square Garden and Chicago Stadium floors. It can be set up on the dirt floor by two men. Also inside the Fieldhouse are permanent telescopic bleacher seats for 3,600 people. The seats on the north and south sides can be folded into the wall when not in use. Temporary bleachers on the other two walls will seat '1,5O0 more. Athletic offices and dressing rooms are also inside this building. Outside the 264 by 178 foot struc- ture on the east side will be concrete seats for 3,600 spectators. Additional wings to the center of the grandstand, not shown in the drawing, will ac- comodate another 2,000. The three-deck press box above the seats on the 50 yard line, will be among the best in the midwest. The lowest decks are glass-enclosed and the top is open. The Fieldhouse, well under con- struction, is a part of the proposed plan of four attached units to be built on the west hill of the football Held: the Fieldhouse, Administration Build- ing, Gymnasium, and athletic field seating. The plans are flexible enough to allow buildings to be constructed separately. With the new Fieldhouse in opera- tion, the University will be able to schedule home games a year in ad- vance, with a broader choice of op- ponents in a full program of inter- collegiate athletics. The completion of the Field-- house will be a force to draw more athletes to the University. It will also revolutionize the spring sports program at Omaha U. And it comes at a time when the post war University sports program is enter- ing the "bigger school" category of intercollegiate competition. When Athletic Director Virg Yelkin came to Omaha in 1946, he had to reactivate an athletic program that had been dormant throughout the war years. Since he has been here, Yelkin has put the University back on the sports map in four major sports, as well as in golf and tennis. He has also inaugurated wrestling on an inter- collegiate basis. And now, when the Fieldhouse facilities are completed, the sports program will be strengthened both physically and psychologically in the step up to higher objectives in Uni- versity athletics. But even though the Fieldhouse is not yet finished, the ten-year building program moves on. State Legislature Bill Number 7 gives the Board of Regents power to issue revenue bonds to finance the construction of student or faculty housing. This same bill would also permit the building of a combination stu- dent union and dormitory on the campus. Despite post war leveling oft, a new expansive era seems to be in the offing at the University of Omaha. OBJECTIVES WERE MET 'N 34.2 flue Cfafafea Europe's "Three Estates," under the magic push of American progress, have grown to number live. These estates of Religion, of Business, and of the People have been joined by those of the Press and of the Radio. And here at Omaha, under the influence of a rapidly progressing University, the past year has meant moving faster toward higher objectives in each of the estates. THE FIRST ESTATE Anyone who stood during the crowded Christmas Convocation could see Q . . that students found reverence to play a great part in guiding them through e lglon college and life. Together, in the University, students of many different races and religions studied, worked, and discussed ideas, during the past yearfbetter meeting the objective to get along with their fellow man. THE SECOND ESTATE Among the efforts of the University to fit the student for the business . world that the college graduate will enter was the all-school Vocations Day, MIHQM held May 4. There, at seminars, speeches and exhibitions, the students received additional advice and guidance to help prepare for their niche in the future. As for actual business training, the University has recognized the joint responsibility that exists between institutions of higher education and business for the education and training of well-qualified personnel. In this line, the new Department of Retailing, working with the Associated Re- tailers of Omaha, provides a uni ue training course. Students who study under this de- partment attend classes four days each week and work in member stores of the Associa- tion two days a week. ln this way their classroom instruction is coordinated with on- the-job laboratory experience to insure a well rounded program. In the words of one business man: "We feel that more college graduates should be interested in retailing, the largest business in America. So we decided to do something about it." The Department of Retailing is under the recently enlarged Division of Business Administration in the College of Applied Arts and Sciences. THE THIRD ESTATE 80,04 The 1,913 students in day classes at the University, despite post-war leveling-off, made Omaha a big-time institution, with all the advantages of a cosmopolitan population. 'l'he University drew students from seventeen states-from Massachusetts to Californiafand from Hawaii to India. Nebraska naturally provided the majority, 1,668 students, Iowa was second with 212. Six students came from Illinois, and four each from Missouri and New York. Ages of students ranged from 17 through 58, with most in the eighteen year age group. The average is 21.3, a year lower than the 1948 first semester average. Three-fourths of the student body are men, and students were preparing themselves for 112 different vocations. lgredicknf if COHLPOHCQJ Another of President Milo Bail's innova- tions to help students in their preparations was 1 a December series of "Presidents Conferences , with University Classes." Dr. Bail began the conferences to "discuss matters of importance to students and to help them to evaluate their University education." ugudf graefuafion Because about seventy-hve students were graduated at the end of last summer without the traditional mortarboard and gown ritual, President Bail has directed that the next sum- mer graduation, August 19, should include all of the ceremony usually included in the june graduation. l The qualifications of the faculty and ad- ministration largely control the success of any educational institution. In line with the grow- ing objectives here, the University added four- teen new faculty members at the beginning of the school year. Included in the group were the new head of the Department of Education, Dr. Frank H. Gorman, who also became director of curri- culum for Omaha Public Schools, Hurford H. Davison, who headed the new Retailing De- partmentg and acting head of the History and Government Department, Williaiii Utley, who also directed the Institute on Worlcl Affairs. The other members of the new faculty group were Robert E. Andrews, Dr. Marinus Bardolph, Mrs. Ernestine Bottlemy, Willitllli H. Durand, Laurence A, Frye, Robert D. Harper, Miss Joyce McLeod, George S, Pritchard, Mrs. .L Catherine A. Thomas, and Raymond Ziegler. Charlie Brock began the first semester as foot- ball line coach but left the University March 1 to become a Green Bay Packers coach. The critical housing situation existing among the new faculty members prompted the Board of Regents to vote to have a bill authorizing them to issue and sell revenue bonds presented to the state legislature in january. The legislature came back with LB 7 which authorizes the Regents to finance the construction of student or faculty housing or other revenue producing buildings without raising local taxes. Another bill to help the University keep good faculty members was passed at the same session. LB 6 authorizes the Regents to expand the present retirement plan. Formerly, University employees paid five percent of their wages, up to s3,ooo, into a retirement fund, and the University contributed an equal amount. The bill allowed the Regents to raise or take off the 53,000 limit. Another new administration development was the Faculty Lecture Series. Five professors spoke on timely and interesting topics in their special fields. They gave their opinions on Usubjects important to intelligent people who want to act in the world of today." The series was open to anyone who wished to attend. THE FOURTH ESTATE we pfedb "The issue was two issues," said Gateway Ed- itor in Chief Bob Seitzer when he told why the Fourth Estate of the University couldn't remain static while the rest of the University programs and departments grew. And the two issues were the regular Tuesday and Friday editions of The Gateway, the second college newspaper in Nebraska to be published more than once a week. Two issues for the staff were keeping up with the news in a rapidly expanding University and allotting more of their time and energy to The Gateway.

Last April, students took over Radio Station KBON for one full day of oper- ations. From the time student Warren Wittekind went on the air with the early morning news, until midnight when Wit- tekind, Ralph Carey and Jack Katz signed the station off the air with a recorded program, students had a hand?-and a voicefin most of KBON's programs for the day. As a result of the work done by the University's journalism students in rewriting the news, the station asked three of them to help cover the April pri- mary elections. Alumnus Joe Baker, KB- ON promotion manager, said the first success meant OU-KBON Day would be an annual affair. This year, on March 22, students took over the station for the second year- Last year, the Journalism and English Depart- ments combined to offer the four year major in Writiiug program. Until then, journalism students could take only a two-year certificate course at the University. The other large advancement last year was the enlarging and remodeling of the Student Publicaf tions offices, which also serve as two modernly- equipped journalism laboratories. presenting interviews, plays and newscasts, while getting a realistic view of the problems of radio production. At the beginning of the fall semester, two other local stations invited the University to pro- duce weekly programs. The "Your University" program began its weekly 9:30 p.m. Monday airings on KOH. dur- ing the latter part of September. Students previewed coming events, and faculty members gave opinions and interpreted current problems. In November, the University began a similar series each Sunday at 6:45 p.m. over KOWH. Faculty members discussed current problems, reviewed books, and gave advice to Omahans. In February, Assistant Music Professor Rich- ard E. Duncan, who conducts both the Omaha and the University Symphony Orchestras, took to the Wednesday morning KOWH air with a musical appreciation program. The airing was patterned after the late Walter Damrosch's educational music program, and Mr. Duncan aimed at plenty of variety-from sym- phony to be-bop. The variety on all of the University programs and the number on the air showed the success of the objectives of the University in the fifth estate. Many students were working part time at local radio stations and several graduates held positions in broadcasting. 2 T-E-1-Y-525-Z1'fQi-2-:Jil-H-71114-gvz-111-2-1-1-1-'MAJ-T"Q-ivffz-fiiffa-z'1-1'2-1-1-kg-5-1-1-1-5+i-1-1-5.-1-LQH-5,-1-if 1.725-'Z 51 el06Ll"fl'l'l8I'lf5 lfUQI"8 QXIUCIJLJQ6! The Regents set up a separate Chemistry Department in September, removing it from the Divi- sion of Science. Dr. Nell Ward, professor of chemistry, was named head of the department, created be- cause of increased enrollments, particularly by pre-medical, pre-dental students, and chemistry majors, along with the requirements of the American Chemical Society. The department held open house in Feb- ruary to show its modern and fully equipped laboratory in Room 441. egfeeff l,Uel"8 In February of 1948, with the completion of its 320,000 laboratory, the Home Economic Depart- ment onfered the degree Bachelor of Science with a major in Home Economics. Previously, students had been limited to two-year associate titles. The new four-year program provided technical training in both foods and clothing. Last December the Graduate Committee instituted the degree Master of Science in Education. It will be awarded upon completion of certain graduate programs in the field of professional education. Two of the new degrees offered by the University since january, permit music and art majors to take more than forty credit hours in their major fields. The new degrees authorized by the College of Arts and Sciences are the Bachelor of Fine Arts in Music and the Bachelor of Fine Arts in Art. In March, the University became one of seven universities in the United States to offer a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration, with a specialization in Real Estate. The University added three courses to its curriculum to establish the major. They are Real Estate Law, Real Estate Develop- ment and Management, and Real Estate Appraisals. In line with the higher objectives brought about by an expanding University of Omaha, several other departments were awaiting approval by the Regents of new degrees, as the Tomahawk was com- pleted. 32 Wafiona rganizafiond During the past semester, national organizations rushed onto the social and professional part of the campus. The Independents, an organized group designed to give unaffiliated students a chance to partici- pate in University social activities, had their national affiliation approved by the University during the lat- ter part of March. Pi Omega Pi social sorority was installed as Zeta Delta chapter of Chi Omega April 1-the first national sorority on the University campus. National officers and representatives from midwestern col- leges were present as Pi Omega Pi became the 105th chapter of Chi Omega. The first professional fraternity entered the campus on April 23, when Delta Beta Phi, Omaha's professional commerce fraternity was installed as the Gamma Eta Chapter of the International Fraternity of Delta Sigma Pi. MAP! .gndfifufed Because the University feels a responsibility to provide the people of the city with a chance to learn more about vital issues in the realm of international relations, the Institute on World Affairs has been opened to the entire com- munity. The objectives of the Institute were to cover as broad an area of events and viewpoints as possible, and to obtain speakers qualified to present information and opinions. "That this has been the Institutes most suc- cessful year seems to be the general concensus of opinion," according to Director William Utley. "While it would be difficult to improve upon the level of the speakers, the entire plan for next year's Institute is being carefully studied with an eye to reaching an even larger number of people more effectively." Because the University sees that world trade no longer need be limited to the business institutions in coastal cities, the University has held the first midwestern Institute on World Trade. The guest lecturers discussed the ways, means, and procedures for getting into export and import business or enlarging the present volume of world trade in the midwestern area. 33 in get HE. 0lfU'l6!0I" 3 ag The fortieth birthday of the University brought back memories of the sixteen person faculty and the nineteen students who began studying in the big, wooden Redick Mansion on September 14, 1909-the first class session of the brand new University of Omaha. Still youthful as far as colleges go, but continually progressing for forty years, the University celebrated Founders Day, Octo- ber 8, with an all-school convocation and a dinner for invited guests. Dr. John R. Em- ens, president of the Ball State Teachers College, Muncie, Indiana, was principal speaker at both events. omecoming The spirited 1948 Homecoming stays on in Omahans' memories as another example of the progress of the University in meeting higher objectives. In place of the usual football game and dance, students and faculty put forth a full day of activity. A pep rally at 9:30 a.m. started the festivities. Departments and or- ganizations welcomed alumni and friends to the displays and decorations at the morning and evening openhouses. Then there was a noon luncheon for guests. That afternoon the Indians stopped the Doane College Tigers on the Benson grid- iron. Homecoming Princess Roberta Muir was presented at the game. The evening victory dance had the music of Orrin Tuck- er's nationally-known dance band. Not just a football game and dance, the University Homecomings have come to mean a real homecoming for alumni students and friends. .14 goodf Ar .Sjairif It takes a good fight song to put the full meaning into the words "school spirit." And it took a year-long search for the Uni- versity to get the right song: "Fight for Omaha," by O. W. QOlliej Joiner, school music instructor in Rippey, Iowa. The Alumni Association sponsored a contest for a pep song and an alma mater song in the fall of 1947. Despite the S50 prize, no selections were made-the songs were few in number and not of the right quality. This year The Gateway joined with the Alumni Association to offer a 35100 award as incentive for a song worthy of being of- ficially adopted by the University. Letters were sent to 150 musicians and music teach- ers in the territory, inviting them to com- pete in the contest. By the November 20 deadline, 27 per- sons had entered. Then the five judges went to work. Martin W. Bush, Richard Duncan and V. Kennedy of the Music Depart- ment, and Virgil Sharpe and Mrs. Olga Strimple of the Alumni Association nar- rowed the entries down to five songs to be arranged for judging by the students. Students picked the Joiner light song at a joint convocation-pep rally held in the Auditorium February 25, the day of the Omaha-Creighton basketball game. Creighton defeated Omaha that night.

TYSON BA., DePrmuf University Inrlrurlar in Speerh First aid in case of accident or illness is the daily order of business in the Student Health Office. '. While the treatment of disease and corrections of defects is left to the family physician, this office carries on a program of education in correct health habits. It takes a sympathetic interest in the student's problems over his physical condition. Its aim is to encourage him and support him in his efforts to establish and maintain a high level of health and well-being. In addition, the Health Office conducts the required complete physical examinations for students before their admittance to the Uni- versity. With the help of the nurse on duty, Dr. Maine C. Andersen's direction of the Health Office is another valuable service to the student body. 54 3400! of giclucafion 5 Education is a lifetime interest. In this belief, 2,100 men and women enrolled in the University's School of Adult Education the first semester. Under the direction of E. M. Hosman, the school has become the largest of its kind between Omaha and Denver. It offers four training programs-cultural courses, general vocational courses, graduate courses for students and teachers, as well as Technical Institute courses. Many classes are of college level and may be car- ried with or without degree credit. Instructors are i members of the University faculty and specialists fitted EVERETT M. HOSMAN by training and experience to lecture or teach courses M.A., Ul7f1'E7Jiljl of Chicago in their special fields of knowledge. Edliggfgirqffdfijlj853332225 'gilggw During the year, the School of Adult Education arranged a series of institutes, including the World Trade Institute, Institute on World Affairs, Family Life Institute, Institute on Israel, Midwestern Con- ference Series fin cooperation with the Department of Educationj, summer Women's Institute, and the Midwest Book Reviewers' Conference. Special clubs sponsored by the S.A.E. which also directs the Downtown Foreign Language Center, were the Town and Gown and the Open Forum Club. Members of the Adult Education Council, headed by Mr. I-Iosman, are C. W. Helmstadter, Frank H. Gorman, and Robert I.. Mossholder. 55 lll'l'll'Ylel" .SAUDI L .. :ge Q Q Summer school classes at the Uni- versity of Omaha offer not only chances to earn extra credits, but an adventure in education. Its objective is to present a flexible program of short, intensive courses and workshops for summer students who want to meet certificate or degree requirements or to hasten the com- pletion of their college program. The schedule of courses and activi- ties that are prepared each summer are specially designed to meet the needs of these summer school students. The regular University faculty is sup- plemented by visiting specialists. The course offered in the two reg- ular sessions as well as the pre and post Sessions are arranged to meet the needs of regular, undergraduate stu- dents and teachers who are seeking training for new jobs and responsi- bilities. One of the biggest advantages of attending these summer school classes is the fully air conditioned building- classrooms as well as laboratories are spacious and cool for summer study. High school graduates and veterans may begin their regular college work in the summer sessions. The University Library provides good opportunity for summer re- search. It is one of the larger collegiate libraries in the state of Nebraska and in addition, it has the distinction of being an official depository of all United States Publications. Wglti Cffaaaea The School of Adult Education is continuously striving to give the citi- zens of Omaha increasingly valuable experiences of an educational, cultural and vocational nature. Their program of late afternoon, evening, and Satur- day courses offers a wide range of classes designed to meet individual needs. If a person is interested in civic affairs and more effective citizenship, in professional or vocational advance- ment, in personal development, or in part-time study leading to a degree, he will find an offering in the program of the S.A.E. which will meet those needs. .lc nicaf agnrififufe The program now offered by the Division of Technical Institutes is an outgrowth of the technique used by the University of Omaha in training several thousand persons for war jobs in Omaha and else- where. The division presents a streamlined method of job training which can be completed either at students convenience, or in a comparatively short time. Dean C.W. Helmstadter is Director of the Institutes. Today the Institute is being used by local business to solve its special train- ing problems, as well as by working men and women who are interested in job training to prepare for positions with greater responsibility and pay. Much of the program has been planned in cooperation with key industrial personnel. Courses and methods undergo con- stant revision to keep pace with chang- ing conditions in the business world. All classes and laboratories are conducted in the main building on the University Campus and the Engineer- ing Annex located in the East Quonset, south of the main building. Key men in industry as well as Uni- versity faculty members serve as class instructors. Classes vary from courses in Airport Management and Aviation Ground School to Radio Sales Man- agement. 57 0l"I"e6l00l'l BHC? 0lfU'5e5 It is the general policy of the Board of Regents to make the educational opportunities at the Uni- versity of Omaha available to the largest possible number of people in the city and its natural service area. In response to an increasing demand for off campus instruction, the S.A.E. also offers a number of home study or correspondence courses. Such courses give a practical opportunity for education ad- vancement to those persons who have the ability, the time, and the desire to study, but are temporarily denied the privilege of campus study. Experience of leading universities has demonstrated the efficiency and educational value of instruc- tion by correspondence. Among the many advantages is that of an almost complete ada tation to the needs and conveniences of the individual student with respect to time of enrollment, rate otpprogress, and personal counsel of the instructor. An additional advantage is that a home study course may be carried in addition to regular class work. uyoeruifie .Safely In addition to the many other opportunities for learning offered by the School of Adult Educa- tion, the Supervised Study Center presents a special program for speed-up courses during the regular semester sessions. Work in the Study Center may be started at any time. This feature is especially valuable to return- ing veterans, or to students who have missed school because of illness. The Study Center students are provided with standard courses at either college or high school level and all work is done in the center itself. Normally a period of three weeks will enable a student to earn three college credits or one high school credit. The time required may be longer or shorter, depending on the working speed of the indi- vidual. lfU"6 ed Women in nurses training, who would otherwise receive no academic training credit for their work, are taking their college credit work at the University. This semester there were 54 nurses en- rolled from Jennie Edmundson Hospital in Council Bluffs and Methodist Hospital in Omaha. Working on their Bachelor of Science in Nursing, the nurses combine hours of work at the hos- pital with the hours they spend here at the University in their various classes. , ,c is 32, 'ge i r 58 ECl,XfQl" c3lLCflfll"85 Set up by an endowment fund in 1939 by Mrs. Katherine K. Baxter, the Baxter Memorial Lectures have continued annually since that date. These lectures bring outstanding speak- ers to the campus for addresses on political science, economics or soci- ology. Last year, a member of the five man committee which drafted the Lili- enthal report on atomic energy was the speaker. Dr. Chester Irving Bar- nard Qleftj gave two addresses- "Atomic Fission Under the Interna- tional Control," and "The Conse- quences of Atomic Energy Witliout That Control." Jack Carter frightj, 1948 Gateway Editor, represented the University of Omaha at Dr. Bernard's press con- ference at the Blackstone Hotel. omfocafiond Aside from all the study, and work that goes with college, the S.A.E. presented a series of convocations. This year there were entertainers, lecturers and outstanding movies shown in eve- ning convocations. In November, The National Classic Theatre presented their production of Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet" on the University Auditorium stage. f' , lf ' f Z ! 5 7 X irsnf' Magzafion . . . we warrior reacked Aifi 9001 Sen 075 Preridenl BYRON MILLER The largest june graduating class in Omaha University's history, the "Forty-Niners" also made history by having separate ceremonies for the summer graduates. In the past, summer, as well as june graduates have participated in the same graduation exercises. Seniors were active on the Gateway and Tomahawk staffs, in social, service, and honorary organi- zations, on debate teams, in departmental work, and in sports. Reflecting their varied interest in activities, the Class of '49 received degrees in every field of study at the University. 62 Vife President WENTWORTH CLARKE Secretary-Tremurer JEANNE THOMSEN Dan Koukol, Wentworth Clarke, Ruth Jorgensen, and Marjorie Mahoney represented the class on the Student Council, with Koukol holding the president's gavel. Guided by President Byron Miller, Vice President Wentworth Clarke, and Secretary-Treasurer Jeanne Thomsen, the "Forty-Ninersi' kept the old traditions and added some new features to ' tion exercises. Among the traditions to be observed are the planting of th of a gift to the University on Senior Day.

School spirit was hitting new heights, and the class reflected it by being active in every phase of life on the OU campus. Freshman Nadyne Alley was chosen Tomahawk Beauty Queen, February 25. At the Freshman Mixer, September 26, Bob Lindwall and Muriel Beebe were elected Typical Freshman Boy and Girl while second semester Freshmen were honored at a Tea Dance given by the Student Council, February 10.

Active in such organizations as the University Players, and Independents, members still placed in honor fraternities and on the Deans' Honor Roll. Student Publications, the Gateway and the Toma- hawk, had freshmen helping on their staffs. With hopes of seeing much of the ten-year building plan completed before they graduate, next year's Sophomores will have much to say and do about the future of Omaha University. 100 va .529 uwggggx in A 51124 ga 9,53 0, vw afwv K aw aww? .- 51' H 1-. gg la. 1 5 .5 V.

Ma-ie Day, that great day set aside by the Gods to be one of continuous festivities, was designated as May 14. Truly, it was a great day climaxing a full year of activities. The God of the Sun beamed his approval during the entire day, and verily rejoyced with his subjects. He made the floats in the mile long parade glisten as though the very stars had decorated them. The God of Plenty rose early to be at the breakfast in Elmwood Park and the freshness of the dew and the clearing sky bathed in sunlight were the forerunners of happiness symbolizing the joy that would follow. Men and women of the tribe were summoned to show their strength and skill in competitive sportsvsoccer, softball, and volleyball. Organizations within the tribal camp did try to outrival each other in constructing and designing floats that would attract the judges eyes and each tribe did decorate their vehicles and proudly paraded through the great province of Omaha, past an inferior tribe called Creightonians and did nobly scorn that tribe. The parade ended by the Pow Wowf Inn where great quantities of meat and drink were consumed. The afternoon was filled with more competition among the organizations through skits which the maids and braves directed and produced. After the skits, Princess Attira XIV, ,jane Harkert, was crowned and there was a great rejoicing among the tribe, for a new Princess had come to them. The great day of happiness was ended at a dance at the great hall in Peony Park, and the God of Remembrance did shower us with his goodness that we might never forget Ma-ie Day, 1948, 104 CUTLJG' Of the organizations that entered Hoats in com- petition, first place award went to Pi O and their "May Basket." Theta won second place with "O. U. on Top of the World," and the Phi Delts placed third with their "25th Anniversary." Flowers, crepe paper, and wood went into the makings of the Hoats and even music added to the originality of some. rogram- In the skits too, the organizations competed. Held on the Auditorium stage, each skit was limited to eight minutes. First place was awarded to Pi O's "Bessie the Bartender's Daughter," second place to Gamma's "Man in the Moon," while third place went to Phi Sig's "The Great Detective." Street scenes, bar-rooms, gardens, the old south, a variety of settings with a variety of ideas and or- iginality were used. rincebd- After a minute and one-half of beating tom toms, growing louder with each beat, ,lane Harkert came on the stage in a Crosley convertable. She was presented with her crown and bouquet by the Presi- dent amid the cheers of her newly acquired subjects. Although the election of the Princess was held two weeks before the activities, the Winner's name was traditionally withheld until the skits were com- pleted. Q gat me Sororities and fraternities at the University of Omaha celebrated their first annual Greek Week April 22 and 23, 1948. Sponsored by the Interfraternity and Intersorority Councils, the festivities for the occasion began at a general assembly in the Auditorium with President Haynes speaking on "What the University of Omaha can Contribute to Fraternities and Sororitiesf' Many prominent speakers, associated with national groups, presented constructive ideas to the growing organizations on the campus. Speaking on "What Sororities and Fraternities can Contribute to the University of Omaha," Mr. Stuart Kelly, national chaplain of Theta Chi, told students, "You don't measure what you contribute to your organization to make it the best on campus, but give your all." Other speakers at the various workshops, luncheon, and reception were: Mrs. Marion Withrow, national vice president of Zeta Tau Alphag Mrs. Virginia Weaver, Pi Beta Phi, Mrs. james Moore, na- tional treasurer of Kappa Alpha Theta, Mr. John Baugh, assistant chapter supervisor of Sigma Alpha Epsilon, and Mrs. Kenneth Armstrong, Pi Kappa Alpha. Following the banquet, scholarship awards were presented by Mary Padou Young and Mr. Orms- by Harry to the organizations which had maintained the highest scholastic records during the previous semester. The winners of these awards were Phi Delta Psi and Alpha Sigma Lambda. Also, on Friday evening, a reception was held in the Faculty Club Room for speakers, faculty, and Greek officers. Saturday's activities began with workshops on pledge training, scholastic, and organized rushing problems. Mr. Stuart Kelly led these topic discussions. A luncheon in the Cafeteria, with all the principal speakers as guests, was held at noon to end the week's business activities. Dancing to the music of Lee Barron in the Auditorium, students closed this educational and all 'round profitable week with a note of gaiety. Joanne Kurtz, Sig Chi, was student chairman of the event. 106 his election was made atop the Feathers' float in the Ma-ie Day Parade. The other candidates and their affilia- tions were: Bradley Field, Independent, Erwin Schultz, Alpha Sig, jerry Swengil, Beta Tau Kappa, and Bob Walker, Theta. During the past year Danny has proved himself to be the Joe College for he was elected president of Phi Sigma Phi and of- ficiated as President of the Student Council. The contest is sponsored annually by the Feathers to determine the most popular "Joe" ' Miss Nell Ward, right, re- ceives the check for Red Cross donations from the Campus Chest Drive from Dan Koukol, Student Council president. 08 amy? Preceding the Ma-ie Day elections by a week was the Joe College contest. Candi- dates were members of the four social fra- ternities and the Independents-and the final victor was elected by 200 University women. After two weeks of campaigning and vote getting, Dan Koukol was revealed by the voters to represent the typical joe Col- lege of 1948.

Homecoming this year became a really great event when President Bail announced the addition of a room decoration contest to the traditional football game, announcement of the Princess, and dance at Peony Park. At Hrst there were skeptics who claimed with all the other activities during that time of the year, a room decoration contest just couldn't be done. Well, those skeptics couldn't have been more wrong. Meetings of the organizations and various councils followed the announcement in quick ana! gedfiuifiea succession, and the spirit of competition was at its greatest height. The enthusiasm toward Homecoming spread throughout the school and when the final day ar- rived, the students, faculty and alumni were ready. Faithful students and alumni attended the football game against Doane in spite of the dreary weather which prevailed, and saw the Indians defeat the Tigers 20-19. Well supplied with um- brellas and rain togs, the crowd anxiously awaited half-time and President Bail's crowning of Rob- erta Muir as 19-18 Homecoming Princess. Classrooms were decorated gaily with crepe paper, stuffed animals, and life sized figures of football players. Most rooms portrayed the Doane Tigers as the losing team, while other themes simply connected with Homecoming. Faculty and alumni members judged the results earlier in the day when old grads and parents of the students were guests at an all day open house. The judges declared the winner of the'1'oom decorations to be Gamma, with their "Tigerburg- ersug Phi Delt, with their "Tigerlily"g and Sig Chi with their "Royal Flush." The finale of the biggest Homecoming Omaha U. has ever seen took place at Peony Park, where victorious team members and students danced to the music of Orrin Tucker. Princess Roberta was again presented attired in white doeskin befitting an Indian Princess with the other candidates. Dolores Hughes, represent- ing the Student Council, presented the Princess with a gift. Runnerups for the title of Homecoming Prin- cess were Bettie Blissard Vickery, Marilyn Wfhite, Marjory Mahoney, and Beverly Neilson. HALFTIFE aw.,- ff, Maui, Cimfeaf OWQCLACLLUL Fifty-three University women paid homage to that abstract elusive quality Beau- ty on a February afternoon and Beauty chose one queen and two ladies in-waiting for her court. Three couriers with Beau- ty's full approval judged the contestants not only on their attractiveness, but poise, personality and :harm as prerequisites for her royalty. Mrs. Cunningham, wife of Omaha's mayor, Mr, Harry Bruner, sales manager for Coco Cola, and Tex Benecke, bandleader, had four eliminations and many, many re- calls before they made their decision. Nadyne Alley merited nrst place, Marilee Steinman, second, and Betsy Green, third. The Beauty Contest is sponsored by the Tomahawk and Editor Judy Rutherford emceed the event. Dolores Hughes was co-director while music was provided by Donna Roessig and Diana Fielding.

The "Tom Tom Revue," was not a revue, but a conglomeration of holo- caust and chaos.

From there, the show proceeded into chorus lines, dialogues, people running in and out of the Auditorium and intentional in- terruptions in the audience. A can-can chorus, a loud scream and a band that just couldn't follow the show part of the time added to the glorious confusion. People climbing on ladders to the balcony, a marriage, a quartette that interrupted at the wrong time, a fugitive trying to play cards who was, of course, promptly shot, and the finale in the Pow Wow Inn ended a show that sent half of Omaha away with many a chuckle. 114 je Cfdfe 20l'ge v The University Players presented "The Late George Apley" for the spring play April 1 and 2 before a crowded Auditorium. It was a play about a Boston family which is both comic and tragic.

Students take things into their own hands at the weekly meetings sponsored by Dr. Wilfred Payne, Chairman of Humanities, and the Student Council. Better known as the Coffee Hour, these meetings provide an opportunity for the men and women of the University to discuss current events with each other, as well as with faculty members. A panel composed of students and a faculty advisor stimulate the conversation by lending vari- ations to the theme of the discussion. Politics, religion, government-all topics are discussed openly and without prejudice, supplementing the curriculum in the classroom. College students realize with greater extent the responsibility that will be theirs when they at- tend these meetings and seriously consider some of the present day problems. jopicd Is Religion Necessary City Commissions School Improvement Your University Brotherhood Week War With Russia Legalized Gambling 116 !Q'e:5ic!enf 3 Mcelafion Members of the faculty of the University met the President-elect and his wife at a reception held in the Faculty Club Room March 22.

Eighty students attended the affair held in the Faculty Club Room. Presidents of the sororities acted as co-hos- tesses with the faculty members, and Mrs. Harry, wife of the assistant Dean of Students, poured. The new President and his wife, Dean Lucas and Dean Young were in the receiving line. Christmas themes decorated the room, and the tea table was arranged in reds and greens with pointsettias at either end. Aff .Sllwof Qbanaa Many of the memories of college look back to school dances. Be it formal or informal, a dance seems to personify the gaiety of college days. This year, the Student Council sponsored three all school dances throughout the year in addition to the gala homecoming dance. The first of the three was the Freshman Mixer September 26. Highlighting this affair was the election of the lcleal Freshman Boy and Girl. Each organization on the campus nominated candidates, and a capacity crowd migrated to Peony Park and voted Muriel Beebe, Sig Chi, and Dick Kurtz, Alpha Sig, the ideal Freshmen pai1'. Student Council President Daniel Koukol presented the pair with huge suckers. The newly elected Ideal Freshmen led the following dance to the music of Morton Wells' Drehestra. The University students' Yuletide spirit was in abundance at the Christmas Prom, December 17 at Peony Park. Christmas trees decorated the stage, and Santa Claus himself came to wish everyone a "Merry Christmasfl A question and answer program followed, and winners delved into Santas bag for their re- ward. Eddy Haddads Orchestra provided the dance music, and again the petition murmer for the dance to be formal was by-passed and the style was informal. Friday afternoon, February 4, found the Auditorium decorated with huge hearts and streamers in honor of the new freshmen. The two-hour dance was open to the upperclassmen as well as freshmen, and a four piece combo provided the music. The tea table boasted a heart of carnations for its centerpiece and was loaded with a variety of cookies and two bowls of punch. Hostesses were members of the Student Council, Miss Gertrude Kin- caide and Miss Margaret Killian. 118 ,Zia pa! ied Jdnoflef IQJ, The advertising for the game with Wayne at Detroit brought several hundred students to the station to send the team off in high spirits. Omaha U. songs and yells followed the boys as they got on the train, and the cheerleaders kept the crowd roar- ing until the train pulled out. The football game with Washburn was preceded by numerous stunts to assure a full attendance at the game. One of the pep rallies showed the poor defeated Ichabod being scalped by an Indian, as a member of the Warriors looks on. This skit was put on at the University, and also at several spots downtown. .x4nofLer Mfg The band, the cheerleaders, and the stu- dents, plus spirit, welcomed the Morning- side team for their basketball game here. The Burlington station was filled with O.U. enthusiasts singing and cheering. Pep rallies serve to further school spirit and the idea of fair play among colleges. This year, through the ingenuity of Bill Fear, head cheerleader, the rallies were big successes. agnferriororifg .ggi .Slow A style show of Cover Girls was sponsored by the lntersorority Council Febru- ary 16 to show the latest in spring fashions both for day- time and evening wear to the women students of the Uni- versity. Suits, dresses, sport clothes, formals, lounging clothes- all types of wearing apparel worn by every type of girl were shown. The models were chosen from each of the tive sorori- ties and one girl from each sorority modeled an evening gown in addition to her other costume. Red and silver hearts deco- rated the stage and tea tables were scattered about the Au- ditorium. Narrator for the style show was Dolores Hughes, and Phyllis Earp directed the models. Decorations and ar- rangements were made by Pat Hasch, Ruth Jorgensen, Bev Bush, and Marilyn White. The revolving platform created for the show was con- structed by Jack Adwers and his staff through the coopera- tion of the Intersorority Council and the Tomahawk Editor. f eClI'l5 0I'l0l" QD!

The afternoon of April 2 the initiation was conducted at the University, and that eve- ning the new Chi O's attended a formal banquet given at the Paxton Hotel. The next day the members, their mothers, the Uni- versity faculty, representatives of all na- tional sorority alumnae groups in Omaha, and representatives of Omaha University sororities attended a tea. The Pi O's marked their last year by winning the top honors at the Beauty Con- test-Nadyne Alley was Hrst, Marilee Stein- man, second, and Betsy Green, third.

The purpose of A.P.O. is to assemble college men in the fellowship of the Scout Oath and Law, to develop friendship and to promote service to humanity. The Alpha Phi Omega program embodies four fields of activity: Service to the student body and faculty, Service to the youth and community, Service to members of the fraternity, Service to the nation as participating citizens. Membership is open to all college men who have been Scouts and who can meet the eligibility requirements set by the University. After a lapse of several years Alpha Phi Omega, Alpha Theta Chapter, was reactivated in the Spring of 1947 at the University of Omaha. Present officers are William L. Maloy, president, Lawrence L. Routt, vice president, Robert D. Rhodes, secretary, Robert R. Root, treasurer, Donald E. Chambers, historian, and john R. McGill, alumni secretary. During the past year, Alpha Theta Chapter performed valuable services to the community by redecorating the ballroom of the South Omaha branch of the Young Men's Christian Association and aiding in the promotion of the Red Cross blood-bank in Omaha. Service to the University consisted of maintaining check room service, ushering, and otherwise contributing to the smoothness of opera- tions at Omaha U. H ' The chief social event of the year was the Founder's Day Banquet and installation of officers held in the Faculty Club Room. Faculty sponsors for the organization are Mr. Harry Rice, Mr. M. P.

Several fraternity smokers as well as a fall barn dance which featured square dancing supple- mented these activities. The basis of the fraternity's activities are embodied in its six point program of school and scholastic service, personality development, and social and cultural achievement.

Its principle purposes are: To improve its members in the skill and knowledge of working with people individually and collectively. To provide discussion of mutual problems arising from organization for group action. To study the processes of group dynamics. To give exploratory participation in group work, and to apply the understanding in a practical way by serving de- serving social agencies and institutions in the capacity of group leaders. To encourage the development of civic competence and social awareness. OIflfICERS FACULTY ADVISORS Bill Maloy, preridefzl Mrs. Catherine Thomas Tom Hines, rife preridefzt Dr. L. O.

The Council's first contact for the future Greeks was at the Fontenelle Hotel, August 29 when 100 rushees were introduced to the Gammas, Kappas, Phi Delts, Pi Os and Sig Chis. Again, it was the Intersorority Council which set up the machinery and pledging rules for the 82 girls who signed preference cards on September 20. The members of the Council, two from each of the tive member sororities, entertained the girls of the school at a tea and style show on February 16. Greek activities which were observed during March were planned and executed by the Inter- sorority Council in conjunction with the Interfraternity Council. The Council attempts to take care of all business affecting all of the sororities and help solve problems involving Greeks at the University.

Midway in the first semester the newspaper plunged into the semiweekly field. The switch from once weekly to twice a week moved the Gateway into the honored position of being the only college newspaper in Nebraska, with exception of the Daily Nebraskan, to publish more than one edition a week. Moreover, the University became one of the select few schools to turn out a semiweekly news- paper. Appearance of the new semiweekly on the campus November 16 preceded by four days the newspapers second big event of the year. The Gateway Alumni Association sponsored Fight Song Contest closed the door on entries. A meeting of the editorial staff a month earlier had produced the decision to resurrect the year- old contest, which had failed to produce a worthy song. Staff members felt that boosting the prize money from S50 to S100 and inviting musicians throughout the area to submit compositions could accomplish the mission. Weeks of campaigning followed. Then success came on February 24. Five excellent songs, the top quintet of entries, were presented to the student body for final judging in a convocation-pep rally. The students' selection of Oliver W. joiner's song marked the end of a successful Gateway promotion. Gateway activity got under way in September with Robert Seitzer at the helm. Seitzer held the wheel throughout the first semester. Emmett Dunaway then moved into the Editor-in-Chief post for the second semester, and con- tinued to steer the newspaper until June. 150 OITLCLLCLLUL The high cost of living had its effect on yearbooks too, for there wasn't enough money in the Tomahawk budget to publish as complete a book as the staff wished to give you. After being stale- mated by committees and formal requests for nearly two weeks, Business Manager James Hergert's worries ended, for the finances finally balanced to the right amount. Then, the printer and engraver stepped in to take over composition. Completed and published, its your 1949 Tomahawk. But three months ago, it was only folders crammed full of pictures and papers. One person couldnt do it alone, so the task of Editor-in-Chief Judy Rutherford was shouldered by her Associate Editors Dolores Hughes, Beverly Bush and Lois Brady.

Shortly thereafter, members of the group participated in a Chemical Mixer to introduce local student affiliates to professional members of the society. This spring they participated in a science work- shop, an event sponsored by the Science and Chemistry Departments for the recognition of work done by Nebraska high school science students. Plans were made for field trips to industrial and chemical plants of interest to chemistry students.

President Clark Fobes, Vice President Jack Sueme and Secretary-Treasurer Larry Christensen have done a big job towards the building of an "O" Club that past and future members may be proud of. This year's organization came into existence the first part of December. Once officers and sponsors were selected, the "O" Club began to roll. The members quickly took over selling programs at basket- ball games and many of them helped run the Omaha High School Regional Basketball Tournament in March. The sponsors for this year's club are Mr. Lloyd Cardwell and Mr. R. Wayne Wilson.

The club is open to any engineering student or any student interested in that field. The club is valuable to students for it acquaints them with the various phases of engineering through lectures, tours and movies. These projects are the correlation between classroom subjects and their practical application in industry. This year's activities included excursions to the Bell Telephone Company, the Omaha Steel Works, the Union Pacinc Shops, Radio Station WOW, the American Smelting and Refining Corpora- tion, and the entire heating and Ventilating system of Omaha University. On the lighter side, the Engineers Club presented a stag party, and a barn dance. Officers for the fall semester were Richard . Patch, resident, Theodore V.

The requirements for membership are a "B" average in all University work and completion of at least twelve hours' work in sociology. Because of these recluire- ments, almost all ot' the active members are either advanced students or are engaged in professional social or educational work in the community. Monthly meetings are held in the respective homes ol' the members. Interesting topics concerning various phases of sociology and social problems are discussed. Emphasis is placed on sociological re- search. The local chapter awards two prizes annually for the hrst and second best research projects com- pleted by sociology students during the year. The chapter takes an active interest in promoting sociology and social welfare work in the community. The Anne Goodbincler Fund was initiated a few years ago by the Goodbinder family in memory of Miss Anne Goodbinder who served the chapter in various official capacities. Officers are Magdalene Pickens, president, Bonnie Stewart, vice-president, jean Rudd, secretary, and Mary Binder, treasurer. Dr. T. Earl Sullinger, faculty sponsor, is also a member of the National Ex- ecutive Committee for Alpha Kappa Delta. Lcfl In riglil.

The players look on while several of their members demonstrate make-up techniques. The University Players' organization is composed of students drawn together by their interest in dramatics. Among the many activities of the group are projects in make-up, set construction and, in fact, every aspect of things which are theatrical. One of the most important functions of the organization is 'the choice, each semester, of a three- act play to be presented for the entire student body. Many Broadway successes and classical plays have thus been given before University audiences in past years. In the fall of 1948, members were unable to present a fall play. This was due to a heavy sched- ule in the Auditorium which prevented rehearsals. Not daunted by this setback, however, the players went on to produce "The Late George Apley" April 1 and 2. Meetings during the year featured addresses by people prominent in the local theatrical world. Other activities of members included participation in the Tom Tom Revue and presenting one-act plays before outside groups. The faculty sponsor is Mrs. Walter Key. 164 .9l'lJ0l0el'l6!Ql'lf5 The prestige of the Universitys Independent group soared this spring when the group became a part of the National Independent Students Association. The Independents, an organization for unaffiliated students who are seeking new friends, fun, and participation in school affairs, joined the National Association in january, 19519. Although this event high-lighted the Independents year, the group was busy in both school events and outside social activities. Homecoming and Ma-ie Day both received recognition from the organization through their pre- paring room decorations, a float, and a skit. Club parties included a "get acquainted" tea in October, a barn dance in November, a Christmas dance in December, and a Valentines Day party in February. Further representation in school clubs came in October with the election of four members to Stu- dent Council. Senior Marjory Mahoney and Freshmen Leonard Best, Mark Gautier, and June Williams all took office following the student election. The Independents were also active in Feathers, the Gateway, the Tomahawk, Pi Kappa Delta, the University Players, Phi Eta Sigma, and the Chemistry. and Engineering Clubs. Officers for the firstf- semester were Fred Barson, president, Eileen Wolfe, vice president, jean Sa- trapa, secretary, and Chuck Drapolik, treasurer. Leonard Gloeb was chairman of the calling committee. Second semester Eileen Wolfe became president, jean Satrapa, vice president, and june Williams, secre- tary.

The Kappa Kappa Gamma chapter of Sigma Tau Delta, national honorary English fraternity, met at informal monthly meetings to discuss English literature of special interest to the group. One meeting each year is devoted to the discussion of original work presented by group members. At the last meeting of this year, the fraternity invited the English faculty to spend an evening of picnic fun with them. Officers for the organization were Miriam Kvetensky, presidentg Bess Tesnohlidek, secretary, and Leonard Weiiier, treasurer. Dr. Ralph Wardle was sponsor of the group. 166 igma Sigma Pi Phi, honorary educational fraternity of Omaha University, has endeavored to further the interest of students and the public in the field of education. For this purpose, the organization sponsored several "Dutch Treat Suppersu during the year. At each supper, a prominent educator dis- cussed several of the pertinent phases of the teaching profession. A student need not be majoring in education to belong to Sigma Pi Phi. The membership is open to any person interested in education or in the educational field. The officers for the year were Don Harouff, presidentg Dorothy Nelson, vice president, john Bryan, secretary, and Alice Mae Smith, treasurer. Faculty advisors were Miss Frances Wood and Dr. Frank H.

The Omaha U. coaching staff is left to right: Athletic Director and Baseball Coach Virg Yelkin, Football Line Coach Charlie Brock, Assistant Track Coach Ernie Gorr, Basketball Coach Don Pflasterer, and Head Football Coach Lloyd Cardwell. ir? main Much of the credit for the giant strides made by Omaha University in the postwar athletic field can be given to its athletic director, Virg Yelkin, now in his third year as athletic boss. During Yelkin's stewardship, there has been a general upward trend in inter-collegiate athletics at the University. just this past semester wrestling was added to the list. And Intramural sports have not been neglected. Under Yelkin, the University boasts the largest and most comprehensive Intramural program in its history. Besides his energy-consuming job as athletic director, Yelkin also serves as the University's baseball coach. Yelkin is a Nebraska University alumnus. While at Nebraska Yelkin played football and basket- ball. He was an end on Dana X. Bible's top-flight grid teams of 1933, '34, and '36, and was a member of the '33 Husker basketball squad. He is pictured as he appeared in a Nebraska football uniform. rnie gow' Gorr might be termed the athletic departments handy man, for he serves as administrator, coach and instructor. He is an assistant coach in football and track and has a busy schedule of of physical education classes. Ernie, a Nebraska U alumnus, had a dozen years of high school coaching experience before he came to Omaha U. His prep football and basketball squads were particularly successful. Ernie picked up his football and track letters at Nebraska Wesleyan Uni- versity in 1931 and '32. 170 all yetifelilflg H- 9 JE, J Ca,-alweff ? Cardie's football roots are deep. He established himself as an all-time Nebraska football great by his outstanding wingback play on Husker teams of 1934, '55, and '36. He is shown in his Husker grid togs. Cardwell also got a taste of the tough pro football game, playing in the Detroit Lions backheld. He gained coaching savy by tutoring the Lions' backs in 1941. Coach Cardwell has guided Omaha University football fortunes during the past three seasons, the latter two in inter- collegiate competition. His last year's squad won live and dropped four games. . . . That mark comes after only two seasons in the post war intercollegiate football arena by Omaha U. 23,011 i efef The youthful Pflasterer came through the 1948-49 cage season, his first as the University's head basketball coach, with the addition of only a few gray hairs to his curly thatch. Before being boosted into the head coaching job, Don served as B team cage coach for two seasons. Pflasterer also serves as coach of the Universityis B football team and super- visor of its ever expanding Intramural program. Pflasterer made his athletic name here at the University where he competed three years each in football, basketball, and track, establishing himself as an all-time Indian great. Besides being named All-Conference halfback two years, Don was chosen the outstanding conference athlete in 1941. He is shown as he appeared as an Indian basketballer during his college days. dark? HOCA Charlie Brock in his short stay at the University was suc- cessful in both his coaching endeavors. The 1948 Indian foot- ball line coached by Brock was lauded on several occasions for its fine play. And Brock's B team basketballers finished the season with a healthy 12 won and 2 lost mark. Now busy in his new job as a Green Bay Packers coach, Brock joined the Omaha U. athletic stan' during the spring of 1948. He tutored Indian line candidates during spring prac- tice and through last season and accepted the Green Bay offer in February to leave the University March 1. Brock was an All-Conference and All-American choice at center during his playing days at Nebraska. After college he joined the Green Bay Packers, where he was regular center for nine years. He is pictured in a Green Bay uniform. 171 .748 548 floofdaf .lam Lefl to right, lop row: Dimartino, Hoenr, Jones, Arvin, Fobes Johnson Hooton, Jackson, Shober. Middle row: Mancuso, Abboud, Arenas.

Head Coach Lloyd Cardwell and Line Coach Charlie Brock molded the Indians into the finest gridiron machine Omahans have seen since before the war. OU opened the home season with a 12-0 victory over Nebraska Wesleyfan. Led by Whitey jones, Bob Shober, john Duffy and Charlie Mancuso, the Indian line charged the Plainsmen into submission. The first Omaha touchdown resulted from a bad pass by the Wesleyaii center. Dusty johnson pounced on the ball in the end zone for the touchdown. In the third quarter Indian Gene Cheely sparked a 50 yard drive to the Plainsmen two-yard line. jarring johnny Wiren plunged for the final touchdown of the evening. A complete reversal of form caused the Red and Black to drop a 26-6 verdict to South Dakota at Vermillion a week later. In Sioux City seven days later the West Dodgers recaptured their winning ways with a 15-6 win over Morningside. ,Iohn Wiren, Gene Cheely and joe Arenas rallied their mates into a brilliant second half attack after trailing 6-0 at intermission. In the third quarter Wiren scored from the two-yard line after Arenas and Cheely had sparked a 48-yard drive. In the fourth quarter Arenas completed two passes that covered 50 yards to the Maroon two. Lynn Hooten burrowed over for the winning score. Westmar was the third OU victim, The Indians whitewashed the Golden Eagles 20-0 at Benson Stadium. Gene Cheely's pass to Archie Arvin covered 15 yards for the lirst touchdown. Don Gorman's plunge from the one-foot line resulted in the second touchdown. Another Cheely to Arvin pass covered 58 yards for the Hnal score. Rene Hlavac, Charlie Mancuso, and Dusty Johnson led the Indian line to its sec- ond shutout of the season. Kearney College found the key to the OU defense and defeated the Indians, 52-13. Fred Abboud, playing his first game of the season because of an injured leg, sparked the Indians to their two touchdowns. Omaha suffered its third defeat of the season at Greeley, Colorado, by 19-6. Fum- blitis and a strong Greeley pass defense were the main factors in the loss. The Indians fumbled seven times and completed only one of 11 passes.

Omaha jumped back on the victory bandwagon the next week with a 20-19 upset over Washburn in a sea of mud. Keyed to a feverish pitch, the Indians completely out- fought and outplayed the favored Ichabods. OU scored first on the terrific passing of joe Arenas. First Arenas tossed a pass to co-captain Bob Shober which carried to the 25. Then he tossed to Don Gorman, who slipped and slid 16 yards for a touchdown. Arenas kicked the point to make the score 7-0. However, the Ichabods came barging back and scored two touchdowns on great runs by Leroy Harmon and Art Fletcher. But Arenas tossed Ll 20 yard pass to Guy Oberg and Guy ploughed to the one. After XXfashburn held for three downs, Arenas passed to the illusive Bud Gibbons for the score.

The young Indians started out the season with three quick vic- tories. During these games they turned on an offensive which rolled up 83 points. At the same time, the rugged Papoose line was keep- ing the goal line uncrossed. Midland B, Luther College, Nebraska Wesleyan B were the three teams that fell before the young Indians onslaught. Several of the most outstanding performers moved up to the Varsity after the Midland game. Among them were Gene Cheely, Llynn Hooten, john Wiren, Bud Gibbons and Dick Lane. But this did not stop the Papooses from walking over Luther 20-O, and Wesleyan B, 20-0. A classy Norfolk junior College eleven finally broke the Pa- pooses goal line charm and pushed across three touchdowns for a 18-6 victory over the Omaha B. This was the only blot on the Omahans record. The next week the young Indians proved that they had re- cuperating powers as they fought off Concordia 22-12. This game was the teams finale because the return game with Midland B was cancelled. Larry Christenson was probably the most valuable layer in Coach Pflasterer's club. Larry's fine passing, running and, kicking was the backbone of the teams offense. At the season's end, Coach Pflasterer had praise for many of the unsung players-guard Neil Apker, center john Falacci, back Bill Merrill, back Paul Larmon, end Jerry Kluza and guard Frank Acquizinno. 176 Larry Christensen Itlost Valuable Papoose The banquets main speaker, Arch Warci, above, is an idea man from way back. The Chicago Tribune Sports Editor began the development of the Golden Gloves boxing tournament in 1928. From a humble begin- ning it has spread into an annual interna- tional affair. In 1933, Ward started the an- nual major league all-star baseball game, A year later he originated the all-star pro- football game. goofgaf ganquef The University's second annual Football Banquet held December 14, 1948, like its 1947 parent, was an outstanding success. More than 500 players, coaches, fans, alumni and students turned out for the banquet. The 500 guests were entertained by a two-hour plus program both from the Auditorium stage and from the speaker's table. And seated at that head table was the Chicago Tri- bune's Sports Editor, Arch "In the Wake of the News" Warcl, who was the main banquet speaker. Ward, discussing the subsidization peril that he said college football faces, declared he was glad to see Oma- ha U. returning to the football scene along with other "amateur schools." "I'm not against a boy getting the best offer," Ward said, "I'm against the idea of subsidization itself." Ward had lots of help in the speechmaking depart- ment. It came from the University's President, Dr. Milo Bail, from its athletic director, Virg Yelkin, and its football coach, Lloyd Cardwell, who shared the task of passing out the Indian football awards, from Clark Fobes, watch charm guard, who represented the Indian footballers, from Max Roper, veteran football official, and from Gregg McBride of the World-Herald sports staff, who introduced members of his all state 11-man and six-man football teams. O. W. Roberts, general manager of the Omaha Chamber of Commerce, handled the toastmaster's duties. Hugh Wallace acted as master of ceremonies. em' gaalelga eadon if Aighggh fd OU cagers, under the able tutoring of Coach Don Pflasterer, racked up their most successful season since pre-war days this year. The Indians garnered a 10 and 10 record for a .500 season. Pflasterer had six lettermen on hand when he sent out a call for cage candidates. With only three weeks between the opening practice and the opening game, PHasterer had to work fast. The new head coach's debut was a semi-successful one de- spite the fact that the Indians dropped their opening tilt by a 20 point margin. The Omaha lads threw quite a scare at the highly regarded University of Iowa cagers, ranked twelfth in the nation the season before, dropping a 64-44 decision. For two and a half quarters the Omahans clung doggedly to the Hawks. But the Iowans' towering height Hnally won out. The Indians trailed by only 25-27 at halftime. In the final minute of an overtime contest, Guy Oberg's one hander clinched OU's first victory of the season, a 53-52 con- quest of Doane. In the opener at home, the Red and Black scored its second one point victory in a row. The victim was a tall Sioux Falls squad which fell under the Indian ax, 47-46. Oberg again pro- 178 vided the victory margin by swishing a free throw in the waning seconds. The Indians kept up their winning ways at home with a ii-S0 conquest of Midland. Don- ny lfitch and ,loe Arenas sparkplugged the Omaha win. Central Missouri College broke the Indians' home win string with a 6l-42 rush past the Omahans.

The Indians got back into the win column by the skin ot' their teeth in their first tilt of 1949. Ernie Iilecky tipped in a basket with two seconds remaining to gain a tie with Midland in the teams' second meeting. The In- dians pulled away in the over- time, though, for a 70-65 win. Flecky scored 22 points in this tilt, the most points scored by an Indian in one game. Oberg and Fitch swished charity tosses in the last two minutes to enable the definitely "off" Indians to eke out a 46-44 victory over Nebraska Wfesleyan in Lincoln. 1 Iirnie Flecky, 53, gets away a two pointer in losing game with Iowa U. The Omaha cluint snatched two victories in less than two weeks over hapless Simpson Col- lege of Indianola, Iowa. The first was a 66-S8 conquest in Omaha, the second a S9-ii over- time win at Simpson. Omaha gained its easiest triumph of the season when it spanked Huron College, 66-44, at Tech. OU's tive game winning streak fell by the wayside when Nebraska Wesleyziii jolted the Indians, il-117, in a dull tilt at Tech. Ray Schmidt's defensive play was all the Indians had to offer.

Free-throwing by Schmidt and Arenas broke a 29-29 tie and iced the ball game for tl1e Indians. Final score was 35-29. The new defense nearly stopped Morning- side in a return tilt at Sioux City, but the Ma- roons n1anaged to take a 58-55 verdict despite tl1e efforts of Archie Arvin and Oberg. A never-say-die Doane quintet nearly upset the dope bucket in tl1eir return engagement with OU on the Tech floor. Trailing by 22 points at one time, the Tigers rallied to go two points ahead witl1 one min- ute left. Ernie Flecky assumed the l1ero's role once again by tipping in a bucket witl1 only 15 seconds left to knot the count. The Indians vnent on to win, 68- 67, in tl1e overtime. "Let's Shatter The Bluejay Myth" was the Indians' war cry wl1en they journeyed up to the Hilltop to meet their arch city rival, Creighton University, i11 the season's finale. Subby Sal- erno and the big floor were too n1uch for the OU quint, and the Bluejays annexed a 50-42 vic- tory. Throughout the season, the Pflasterermen manufactured 1,- 021 points for a 51.05 average f per game. Their opponents hit tl1e bucket for 1,108 counters, an average of 55.40 points per contest. Lanky Guy Oberg, sharpshooting pivot man, paced Red and Black scoring with a total of 215 points. Ernie Flecky, a valuable man under the boards, was second with 147 markers. joe Arenas, perhaps the best defensive player to come out of OU in a long time, was tl1ird witl1 130 points.

Their twelfth win, a 50-40 rush by the Doane B team, was sweet revenge for the loss inflicted by the Tigers in the opener. Bob Farner was the big gun for the young Indians, garnering 92 points in 13 tilts. His nearest competitors were Bob Stedman with 74 points in 10 tilts, Chad Taylor with 72 points in 13 tilts, and Paul Sorenson with 72 markers in nine contests.

In the seasons opener the Ice Indians shutout Harvey's 6-O at the Ak-Sar-Ben arena. Bill Wliite's hat trick was the hottest streak of the evening. The O. U. skaters dropped the next two games in the loop race before gaining a 2-2 tie with Har- vey Brothers. jim Wl1arton's goal knotted the score in the final stanza. The Redmen climbed back into the win column with a 4-3 overtime victory from the Russell squad. Greg Longley's goal climaxed the tight contest. The Ice Indians continued upward on the league ladder, nudging Harvey Brothers 5-1. Little Tom jauss stick handled past the clothiers barricade for three goals in the second period. Gaining undisputed possession of the top position was inspiring to the hockey warriors. The de- termined Indians battled the Russells ice group 3-1 for the fifth triumph of the season. However the Falstaff crew pushed the Omaha pucksters from the top perch with a 3-1 defeat. The rugged Falstaff defense was a sure remedy for the offensive-minded Indians. Coach Gibbon's hockey crew remained in sole possession of second place despite their -I-2 loss to the cellar tenders Harvey Brothers in the next game. However, ice veined Wfarriors were forced to abandon dreams of clinching a tie as the Russells crew fought to a 1-1 draw in a rugged match. The season final against the lial- staff Brewers had no bearing on the title chase for the Brewery squad had snatched the honors in the pre- ceeding game. 'l'Omaha U. Omaha U. Omaha U.

However spirited performances promoted the sport into a higher bracket among the faithful partisans. The cinder crew got off to an unbalanced start at the quad- rangular meet in Sioux City, Iowa, April 12. O.U. raced into third place with 33 2,f3 points, three behind Morningside, the host team with 36 2f3. Glen Richter, redskin high jumper, set a new school record with a 6 feet 1 inch leap at the initial meet. Lorelle Alford tied the school pole vault record of 11 feet at the same meet. Coach Lloyd Carwell's squad moved next to the triangular meet at Topeka, Kansas, April 20. The swift club notched 48V3 points, however the Washburn group stole the prize with 90w. The Red and Black entered the Sioux City Relays three days later against thirteen competing colleges. No team totals were kept at the meet. Glen Richter tied for first place in the high jump with a 5 feet 8M inch leap thus uniform to the effort of Doane Colleges Cohagan. The triangular opener at the Omaha oval, against Doane and Simpson resulted in tragic fashion for the host team. Doane 104, Simpson 35V2 and Omaha 32M. At the Doane quadrangular meet, the Indians limped into the third spot with 27 7f1O markers. Richter's 6 feet high jump mark was the only outstanding performance for the braves. The Indian trackmen shattered the Bluejay myth in a duel event at the Creighton cinders. The O. U. squad swept 12 hrst places of 16 events and dominated the held events in all but four places. It was the first Redskin victory over the Bluejays in any series between the two rivals. The triangular encounter at the Redskin cinders netted a remarkable victory. The Indian braves scalped the visiting clubs with 83 yi, points. Dick Nelson established an 880 yard school record in a flashing 2104.6 performance. The Indians ended competition at home in a duel match with Nebraska Wesleyan May 21. The Plainsmen overpowered the opposition 88-48.

Virg had a maximum of play- ers, but a minimum of good pitchers. This, coupled with injuries and bad breaks, resulted in a three won and ten lost record for the Indians. Two four run innings by Morningside drove the O.U. club to a 10-6 defeat in the first game of the season. Westmar was the first victim of the Oma- hans in the first game of a double-header at Lemar, Iowa. Omaha lashed out 16 hits for a 17-4 victory. Westmar hustled back and took a 6-2 vic- tory in the second game behind the five hit pitching of Gene Monson. A week later Paul Sorenson pitched his Hrst victory when he scattered eight South Dakota hits to beat them at Vermillion 11-6. The O.U. home debut was a heartbreaker as Creighton dumped the Indians 1-0. Jack Lacy pitched a six hitter but his mates were powerless at the plate. jerry Easterhouse and Bob Murray collected four of the Indians six hits. O.U. won their third game when they defeated Westmar 10-6 at Fontenelle Park. Sorenson re- ceived credit for the win. But the Indians were defeated again in the twilight game by Gene Monson. This time the score was 5-3. Two days later Lacy feel victim to poor fielding by his mates and was beaten by Washburn at Topeka 9-3. And the Indians took it on the chin the next day, this time by a score of 5-3. After returning home O.U. dropped a 7-0 decision to Morningside. In the second Omaha U.-Creighton U. game the Indians lost a 3-2 eleven inning thriller. Two walks, two scratch hits and an umpires weird decision gave the Bluejays the winning run in the eleventh. Two more reversals at the hands of Wiisliburil ended the dismal season. Holderness slides safely back to first in Westmar game. 185 Left to right, Jmndirzg: Berner, Jacobus, Duncan, Campbell.

During Campbells two year reign as head golf mentor, his teams have captured 14 victories and lost eight matches. Chet Stefanski, Ray Nelson, john Duncan, Carl Brizzi, Bill jacobus and Bill Berner survived the early season qualifying rounds to carry the Red and Black colors on the links. All six men are back this year, and with plenty of experience behind them, they are expected to have their best post-war season. During the 1948 season, Campbells squad had three shutouts to their credit. Nebraska Wesleyran was blanked 18-O, twice, and Doane was shellacked, 15-O. Other victories included Midland twice, 22W- 4w, and 23-4, Doane, Bw-lw, and Morningside 15-5. Both matches of the intercity Creighton rivalry went to the Hilltop squad. Paced by state amateur champion jim English, the Bluejays dropped Omaha IOAIOVZ and MLQ-IZVZ. A strong Washburn links team defeated the Indians at the Topeka Country Club, 12W-iw. Morningside won their Omaha Field Club appearance against the Red and Black, 12V2-iw. Stefanski, the Indians No. 1 man, defeated Bill Berner 2-1 to win the annual Omaha U. golf tournament last fall. Dick Fowler won the Intramural golf title last spring. 186 ennid Left to right: Hlad, Topolski, Wray, Anthes. Behind the hard-stroking play of Harold Hlad, two-year letterman and captain of the '48 squad, OU,s net team blasted its way to a six-won, Hve-loss record last spring. An all-school tournament got the spring sport underway in the latter part of March. As a result of the tournament, Len Topolski, Don Anthes, and Don Carlson joined the veterans Hlad and jerry Meyers to form the Indian squad. The team got off to a winning start by edging Morningside in the season's opener. In their sec- ond outing, however, the Midland net squad pasted a 5-2 defeat on the Indians. Washburn's powerful net crew drubbed the Indians 7-0, but the Omahans got back on the win column with a 5-2 conquest of Doane. Iowa States' Big Seven court team never dropped a set in trouncing the Indian crew, 7-0. Hlad and Meyers gave the Corn-staters a little trouble in a doubles match, though, before losing 6-1, 6-4. Creighton continued their mastery over OU's net teams by thumping the Indians twice in one week, 6-1 and 4-3. The Indians avenged an earlier loss to Midland by turning back the Fremont squad by an iden- tical 5-2 score. The Omahans fmished out the season with three straight wins, downing Morningside, Wesleyan, and Doane in that order. Bob Wray, who won a berth on the squad in mid-season, won five straight matches to compile the best average for individual netmen. 187 Wfeaffng Omaha's sportlight cast its beam on Indian mats as the introduction of the wrestling sport attracted the O.U. fol- lowers. The grapplers participation was limited to two matches as the schedule arrangement had not been completed at that time.

Coach Allie Morrison former Olympic titlist, coached the Indians in their initial season. He won three successive National A.A.U. championships in the 135 pound class and also earned the Olympic title in Amsterdam, Holland in 1928. The initial squad match in O.U. history resulted in a stunning 54-0 setback from the N.C.A.A. champion, Oklahoma A. 84 M. team. O.U. inexperience and the Aggie's superior condition gave Okla- homa the advantage. Possessing two Olympic champions, the Ags easily manhandled the willing Red- skin wrestlers. Climaxing a short mat season, the Indian squad scalped the St. Ambrose College 'rasslers 22-8. The victory marked the Hrst squad triumph since the introduction of the sport. The Indian grapplers mauled the Iowa visitors by capturing six of eight matches. O.U. was in tip-top condition and showed their talent to advantage. Dick Holst, 156 pounder, was the first Redskin wrestler to win a match in Intercollegiate competition.

The Packers smeared the North High Vik- ings 15-0 to capture possession of top honors. South managed a slim first half advantage by a blocked punt. Bud Goodman and Ches- ter Stefanski hustled through the Vike forward wall and smoth- ered punter Chad Taylor. Al Miller hiked the Packer margin on a 60 yard touchdown sprint with a Viking punt.

Bud Goodman squirmed past the Viking defense to nab Ray Lampe's aerial. Miller's pass to Bob Zacher produced the final point. In a previous game, the Packers racked up a win over the Alpha Sigs as a result of a deep over- time penetration. Al Miller's 15 yard touchdown run tied the count in the third period. Ray Lampe's pass interception set up the score. South also managed a victory from the Benson Bunnies in their movement to league honors.

Intramural cage laurels went to North High's hoop squad for the second consecutive season when the Viking quint edged a hard fighting Alpha Sig hve in the tourney finals, 37-32. The Norsemen, paced by big Rene Hlavac, boasted a five-one record for the season, their only defeat coming at the hands of the same Alpha Sig crew earlier in the year. In the season's opener, Hlavac pushed through 22 points as the Vike five romped Thetas, 40-19. Tech fell before the North onslaught next by the score of 33-I3 before Alpha Sigs upset the Vik- ings, 50-28. The North side crew had to come up off the Hoor to gain their third win and to stay in the tourney. The quick buckets in the last 40 seconds salvaged a 28-27 win over South. Wins four and five were easy for the defending kings. Phi Sigs and Tech fell before the North five by wide margins, and the Vikings gained the right quarter deficit to down the fratmen and retain the championship. Second place honors went to Alpha Sigs while Central wound up in the third slot. Keith Kraai is in hot Water here . . . but the heavyweight wrestler slipped out of Dick Lane's nosey hold to gain the Intramural title. u,ra,4..f Central, with a team composed mostly of foot- ballers, won the Intramural Volleyball Champion- ship with a record of three wins and no losses. In the championship game, the Eagles beat back second place South 15-13, 19-17 to snare the title. Big Ernie Flecky was largely responsible for the win. Ernie's terrific spiking is what finally ruined the Packers chances. Central also defeated Alpha Sigs and Benson in their quest for the championship. However, Benson defeated the Centralites one game before losing the match. The scores were 12-15, 15-5, 15-12. Alpha Sigs fell before the Eagle avalanche 15-12, 15-12, but they managed to win third by taking two other victories in league play. Qu! ing Wren lang The Intramural Wrestliiig Tournament again hit a mellow note on the athletic calendar. The boxing show, however, was eliminated because of the limited number of entrants. Grappler Wfallace Baker won the 121 pound crown by slamming Robert Getsfield to the can- vas in -16 seconds. Baker's attempt for a second title was spoiled by jack Skelley's last period spurt for a -1-2 victory in the 128 pound event. In the 136 pound match, Rex Anderson swarmed over Ronnie Pullen, 7-0. john Vacanti squeezed past Larry Geppert, 1- 0, to capture 145 pound honors. In the 155 pound tussle, Paul Greenlee flipped Alan Heath to the mats in 2:49. Reuben Pierce won the 165 pound crown by default. Tom Harper pinned Henry Iltsch in 4:59 for the 175 pound title. The heavyweight brawl, best of the tourney, featured a bit of roughhouse tac- tics before Keith Kraai used a 33 pound weight advantage to pin footballer Dick Lane in 3:56. .. . .. , .. ....

The South Packers, led by their captain Ray Lampe, forged to the bowling championship for the second season in a row. However, this year the Packers barely squeezed in under the wire. Phi Sigs, who led the league almost all season, fell two games behind the Packers when the South Omahans put on a late season surge. The league, which was run largely through the effort of Tom Olson, was one of the most successful Intramural sports that O.U. has had in recent years. Interest was so high that only one of the nine teams was guilty of forfeiting during the entire season. That team dropped out voluntarily so that the league could be run more smoothly. Len Topolski, Frank Haney, Danny Hill, Charles Budka, and Bob McNutt teamed with Lampe on the championship South aggregation. 190 CL QQFLCL 6!0l":i Left Ia righf are: ,lean Duncan, Lloyd Metheny, .lane Christensen, Bill Fear and Peggy Smith. It was the job of the University's nve cheerleaders to lead the yells at the Indians, football and basketball games during the past school year. And that job was not always easy or pleasant. The Wasli- burn and Doane football games were perhaps the toughest as far as the cheerleaders are concerned, for those two games were played in a cold, driving rain, Besides leading yells at the football and basketball games, the cheerleaders play a major role in pep rallies. And those rallies are not always confined to the University's Auditorium or to its campus. The Omaha football team was given train station sendoffs for a few away games last season. The cheer- leaders also helped choose the University's new fight song at the pep-convocation ralley. The cheerleaders are selected by the Interpep Council at the beginning of each school year. Two of the students pictured above, lane Christensen and Bill Fear, are veterans, for they have completed their second year as cheerleaders. 191 rfr' 5F ENID WOLCOTT RUTH JOURDAN Moc., llnelleilej College BA., Lll1fl'67'.fff-Q' af Omaha Acliug Head uf Department of Playliml Ifzstrzzrlor in Pbyfiml Edzzculiwz Educaliwz for Womefl for Womefz lzzftruclor in Pbyriml Education for Womeez 0l'lflQl'l if .SDOIJ6 Every girl has an opportunity to participate in the sport she prefers, either individually or in groups. This is the plan of Miss Enid Wolcott and Mrs. Ruth jourdan, instructors in the Women's Physical Education Department. Roberta Muir assisted in the department this year and taught a fresh- man gym class first semester. Although Omaha University does not offer a major in VUomen's Physical Education, its athletic program is expanding along with the University. Bowling was one of the new activities taught this year. One of the beginning classes spent their gym periods at Parkway Bowling Alleys where they learned the fundamentals of the game, and by the end of the semester, a majority of the students could brag a score of 150. Score keeping proved to be an obstacle but the women overcame it along with the difficulties of learning correct timing, and how to curve the ball. 192 Also new at the U. was ice skating. For the first time, women could skip gym classes and go ice skating legally. About 70 skated at Ak-Sar-Ben Rink once or twice a week, and although no professional instructor was hired, beginners were aided by the help of Mrs. jourdan and Roberta Muir. There were a lot of spills, but the girls soon mastered the basic problems of correct balance, glide and a few ventured into trying to master figure "8"s. The snow that lasted so long around the O.U. campus was put to some good use by the girls who were interested in tobogganing as an individual sport. Toboggans were furnished by the Physical Education Department while Elmwood Park furnished the site and snow for the sport. l 193 Modem dance is a definite part of the wornen's physical education program. This course is open to second year gym students and to girls who have had some dancing experience. Mrs. Jourdan, accom- panied by tive of her pupils, went to Lincoln this year to the Gertrude Lippincott concert and master lesson. Miss Lippincott put on a concert for the women and also gave a two hour lesson in exercises and techniques with the women composing their own dances. Part of the dance class also planned to go to Lincoln to see the Margaret Mains Small symposium. One of the acts in the "Tom Tom Revue," entitled "Indian Fantasy," was composed of some of the girls from the first semester class. The dancers wore luminous costumes that glowed on the darkened stage, and by the movement of the costumes, the form and rhythm of modern dance was at its best. The desire to learn to swim created a class at the jewish Community Center. Mr. Ted Baker, swimming coach, instructed the women from the beginning techniques to the most advanced stages of lite saving. 194 Always a popular individual sport is badminton. Last fall the Intramural program included a doubles tournament while a singles tournament was held dur- ing the spring. The spring tournament helps to get the girls in shape for the Omaha Athletic Association badminton tournament, and last spring several Omaha University girls entered. Betsy Green and Roberta Muir fbelowj were awarded runner-up medals in the consolation tournament. The W.A.A. Intramural program along with regular gym classes cover practically all of the sports for women. The program includes soccer, held hockey, X ..... .. bowling, basketball, ice skating, softball, volleyball, swimming and cageball. Horse- back riding, badminton, archery, shuffle- board, skiing, and tobogganing make up the individual sports. W.A.A. sponsors an annual Play Day at the University for outstanding high school girls who are exceptionally talented in athletics. A full day of games is planned with various representatives making up the teams. Prizes are awarded to the teams that place first, second and third in all the sports. A luncheon in the Pow Wow Inn is among the Play Day activities, and more sports take up the afternoon hours. l STATIONERY SPORTING G ODS O COLVIN-HEYN STUDIO TOYS' GAMES IN VITES COMPARISON SPECIAL PRICES TO STUDENTS 1807 Farnam St. HArney 5445 NOVELTIES Brain's Sfore 3 FLOORS OF GIFTS O 1413-15 HARNEY JA 4766 Kev' will -'67, x Q? 4- if '72 52 5 4' 6' 40 cms - but please come ,ff out of the moonlight A A X when you choose Z A Your Diamond 07214 I REGISTERED JEWILER ggi?
