In addition, there are three new sections, two of which, we hope, may become permanent in future annuals. The ROTC and Alumni sections represent two groups which make import- ant contributions to Omaha University's successful relations with the public in its effective a1'ea. The third new section, the theme section, was added after careful deliberation and planning by the staff. It represents a somewhat radical departure from the usual material found in a yearbook. Yet, we felt that the present state of international uneasiness and crisis and, at the present writing, the conflict in Korea, justified the inclusion of a sober note in an annual which, for the most part, is usually dedicated to the graduating class and launches it on its uncertain journey into the future with a cheerful and optimistic note. One look at today's world should be enough to convince most of us that unless there is considerable change made in the path the world seems to be following, optimism, more than ever before, will be a most unrealistic approach to life. Our theme, which has to do with the responsibilities rather than the privileges of freedom, was designed with the thought that it might remind some seniors that, in the world they are graduating into, the old standbyes-success, security, happi- ness, the personal yardstick by which failure or success in life is measured, become secondary when compared to the serious, ominous threats to our way of life which are so omnipresent in today's society. A quote from a speech by Franklin D. Roosevelt sums up pretty well the position of those who are graduating from universities in these years: HTO some generations, much is given. Of some generations, much is expected. This generation has a rendezvous with destinyf, DEDICATED TO THE SENIOR CLASS OF 1952: The chief thing is to have a soul that loves truth and harbors it where it finds it. --Goethe Jo, .SL1 uf jAeir QZ5ooLo in cSo,of,, Ofho., ooo! ,4o,offo-ol Mo Sea of gucea jAo1 'lflioofol Soon Soooo ,4oooool jhooo.

MILO BAIL President, University of Omaha 1951 and 1952 were very husy years for the energetic and spirited leader of the Omaha Uni- versity lndians, Dr. P. Milo Bail. Two of his most outstanding accomplishments were the secur- ing of the Air Force ROTC unit for your univer- sity and the terrific joh of selling Omaha on the mill levy raise. Dr. Bail was also active in taking part in civic duties. Our president served as chairman of the 1952 Christmas Seal Sale campaign for the Ne- hraska Tuberculosis Association. He also served as program chairman 1951-1952 for the Rotary of Omaha. As he nears the end of his fourth year of lead- ership at Omaha University, we salute Dr. Milo Bail, a fine president, a good citizen of whom Omaha may well be proud. we 386016 1 "-Ft' W. II.

These organizations are, in their own way, teachers of the lesson of democracy. Econ- omic circumstances, race or religious philos- ophy neither add nor subtract Weight when a man or Woman is under consideration by our university's honor societies. And, as in the case of Waokiya or Omicron Delta Kappa, scholarship alone is not enough to qualify the individual. The University recognizes the fact that a large part of America's strength lies in her ability to meet the demand for well-informed leaders in education, business and government. The purpose of an honor society is to recognize and encourage these future leaders. micron :beha J 50,0100 77afionaW Qfeaaferadip Omicron Delta Kappa, senior menis na- tional ,leadership-honor society, will have completed its second full year on the Cm- aha University campus on May 20, 1952.

OU's Chapter is a hranch of Inter-Varsity, an organization whose purpose is to he a witness for Christ in the colleges and universities of the world. Chris- tian Fellowship is now in its fifth year on this campus. During the school year, Christian Fellow- ship memlvers had Bihle study meetings each Thursday noon and occasionally they had eve- ning meetings with a speaker from outside the University. Early in the fall semester, several members from Omaha Uis chapter at- tended a regional Inter-Varsity conference at Fremont. The conference was a blessing to all who attended. At Christmas time, the adoption of a needy family was a source of much joy to the group. It was the students' duty to see that the family had necessary food for a good Christmas dinner.

Yet, when we stop to consider the many activities which Were crowded into those four years, it is amazing to realize just how much has hap- pened to us in so short a time. ln the following pages We have tried to incorpo- rate some of the activities and features of university life that most of us will remem- ber best. As is the custom, we begin our story of campus life with one of the romantic con- notations that always seem to be so ap- propriate in a yearbook. What sums up the romantic picture of college better than this picture of a young couple silhouetted against the cupola? But college, outside of the romantic realm, is, of course, a very practical bus- iness. Every educational lIlSlllLltlOll,S ex- istence and continuance depends to a great degree upon the eificiency of its business office, administrative heads, and board of regents. Let's take a little tour of our uni- versity and see these offices and oificers in action. llomantic Silhouettes Letis stop first at the Registrar,s office as we did when we were entering freshmen. Under the direc- tion of Alice C. Smith, the office of the Registrar carries a complete scholastic record of each student, issues report cards, class schedules, and handles all information concerning a student's sojourn at the university. It is here that we filled out an infinite number of forms each semester, and later asked with concern about credits for graduation. "Let me read the fine print first" An inquiry at the Business Office re- veals many behind-the-scenes activities of this, the financial center of the school. Besides receiving tuition payments, it serves as a depository for treasuries of various campus groups, and is the billing agent for veterans. This office controls the tax money allocated the university, makes out salaries for all employees, and handles the purchase of supplies. A great number of expense and budget problems are solved by Finance Secre- tary Charles Hoff and his associates. Harhingers of joy and sorrow And then 1'egistration procedure took us to the Student Health Office to pick up activity cards. Here, records are maintained concerning the health status of the students and excuses for absence are applied for. Required phys- icals for P. E. classes that hold such a special place in col- lege memories are also handled by this office. Dr. lVl. C. Anderson combines the direction of the department with his private practice, while Miss Beldora Tacke takes care of student needs with an aspirin or band-aid. hltolls inflfolls in, my gosh, how the money rolls in." As long as we are touring, let's drop in on the counseling appointment this student is hav- ing. The counselors play a vital role in aiding students to plan their courses of study. They not only assist in the mechanics of registration: hut with the knowledge of the stu- dent's lraekgrouud and capa hilities, they enalrle him to re- alize his amhitions for a satis- factory college career. And now, how ahout a cup of coffee in the cafeteria? Operating on a whole- sale-plus-eost hasis, the cafeteria is a gathering place for those who desire a full meal and a few minutes away from thoughts of study. Under the manage- ment of Carolyn Auten, it serves hoth day and SAE students, and also eaters to student and faculty teas, luneheons and hanquets. Another haven for students is the li- hrary, for whiling away the time or for just good hard study. Although anxious- ly awaiting the p1'op0sed new lihrary building, the stall, under Head l.ihrarian Ellen Lord, continues to serve students and faculty in their overcrowded quar- ters. Boasting of a volume collection covering every conceivahle suliject, the lihrary is now housed on two floors lie- sides its main section.

U. wouldn't be complete without a walk around the campus, with an optional side-trip through Elmwood Park. This excursion has long been a pop- ular diversion from classes in all seasons, though probably not as inviting in the win- ter as in the spring and fall. Let's start Jack and 'gthe gang" by meandering up the main walk leading to the administration building. We can then fully appreciate this beautiful Georg- ian structure. To our right, beyond the tennis courts and athletic field is the Field House-our newest campus addition. The socially important Student Center, 6'Rest Home for Tired Students," we find behind the main building along with the ever over- flowing parking lot, engineers, hut, and womenis P. E. quonset. The task of maintaining the 30 acres of landscape that provide the perfect setting for our campus falls on the shoulders of the building department. Seventeen full- time employees and part-time student help, under the supervision of ,lack Adwers, take care of the lawns in the summer, remove the snow in the winter from the walks and drives, and repair and clean the buildings all year iround. This busy department was also responsible for the colorful classrooms that students found when they returned in the fall. We could always find something interest- ing taking plaee in the liookstore. Manager Ben Koenig keeps a well-supplied stock of items ranging from text-hooks to postage stamps. Any prohts earned hy the hook- store are transferred at the end of the year into a sinking lund for the huilding ol' a Student Union. The liookstore personnel includes Mary Ann Prokop, seeretary, and u half dozen part-time student employees. As long as we are nearlry, let's visit Bette Cayer, director of teaehing aids, and Mrs. Marguerite Donhowe, film lihrarian. The hureau provides film strips, reeords, and slides for use hy the faculty in elassroom work. Charts and posters for advertising various soeial and athletie events are made hy this department. as are the displays for the bookstore and trophy windows eaeh week.

They also provide an addressograph serviee for mailing done lay the xarious university olliiees.

It appears that the first convocation of the year, the Freshman Convocation, is lmeing held. At this impressive meeting, the freshmen hear addresses from Dr. llail and all of the deans of the uni- versity. Helpful hints for the lrest study methods and information con- cerning the assets gained from a col- lege education are obtained hy the eager freshmen. Well, now let's visit the two most popular spots at U U--the student cen- ter and the student lounge. The quieter of the two, the lounge, is dedicated to studying, browsing through magazines, catching up on lost sleep or gossip, or just plain relaxing. Mrs. Frances Uher tries to maintain quiet when she is not operating the PA system. The shack, popular name for the student center, comlnines the attributes "A convo today? Good. that means shortened periods of the lounge with the added attrac- tions of the jukebox, lunch line, and coke machine.

The strange and the unfamiliar, as time pass- es, become the identification and the symlmol of years past. Halls, like any other physical component of a univer- sity, are part of the environment in which we, as individuals, have learned to make a better way of life for ourselves and ou1' fellows. In years to come, the sight of these halls will a1'ouse memories of many happy and rewarding hours. Omaha U has a fine but overcrowd- ed parking lot. Cars of the faculty, visitors and students fill the upper and lower lots and overflow into Elmwood Park.

PA RIS H erald The general opinion expressed hy speakers at the World Affairs Institute was that Russia can be thwarted by concerted action and alert- ness on the part of the United Nations, and particularly the United States. All agreed that aid to Eisenhower's embryonic NATO army should be increased, though Ray Brock suggested that the seeds of World War HI are in the Middle East. He emphasized that Turkey is one of our strongest allies, and that, Hthe Turks hate the Soviets, and will take action at the drop of a hatf' Echoing Brock on Turkey, Louis Allier said that there are four pertinent reasons why the Middle East becomes such an important focal point: its influence as the center of the Moslem world, its location as nucleus of the largest land mass in the world, its importance for Allied transportation and communicationsg and its oil, desperately needed by Stalin. Senator Brewster, summing up America,s position in the North Atlantic Treaty Organ- ization, argued that we 'gmust recognize that our resources are limitedf, and need not 'ahelp others by destroying ourselvesf' N05COW Brewster BERLIN Schwartz PURT L Segar BUDAPf57" Alber MStalin's stupid aggression," Dr. George Herald maintained, Nwas responsible for turn- ing the NATO plans into action. We would still be studying if it had not been for the im- pact of that outburstf' Dr. Seger said that if the Germans show opposition to the idea of reactivating the Ger- man Army as a part of NATO, it is because they fear the revival of militarism. Too many times, he pointed out, militarism breeds vio- lent ideologies. The purpose of UNESCO, Mrs. Wright said in her talk, is to make economic progress where it counts, Mon the grass roots level,', rather than at the political planning table. Joseph Harsch, speaking on Communist ex- pansion, said, wllhe present day USSR policy is aimed at weakening our economic policyfi ANKA RA VV right NA PL Russia has more military strength than all the United Nations forces combined, said Dr. Harry Schwartz, but their industrial potential is only one-third that of the United States. The Soviet system gives neither freedom nor plenty, he added, but because Statlin is con- sidered by his people to be a lesser evil than the old order, they would be willing to fight for their homeland.

The reason? Voters had approved a two mill levy for Omaha University. President Milo Bail proclaimed a Hskip dayw as a reward. Professor Vlfilliam Utley, faculty leader, George Marling, student chairman of the Mill Levy Cam- paign, and Don Pflasterer, had supervised activities so that as many voters as possilmle were personally contacted before the election. A Hstuff heev for faculty members was held one evening to help prepare hundreds of pamphlets for mailing to Omaha voters. A student polka hand and an HOmaha Needs An- other Milln float tou1'ed South Omaha calling atten- tion to the schoolls need for their vote. Nearly 400 students reported for work at the polls distrilmuting campaign literature. The mill levy passed with a 1,923 vote margin. An all-day dance with an ample supply of eoffee and doughnuts was held in the auditorium. The campaign, it was felt, demonstrated the great loyalty and faith students, faculty and alums have in their university.

I Q grcwfuafion That long-awaited day for a11y college student is graduation day, with the pic- turesque ranks of seniors in their caps and gowns. The march across the cam- pus, toward commencement exercises and the awarding of the all important sheep- skins, is an image that long remains i11 the graduateis mind. The heautiful glow that envelopes the embarking seniors continues throughout the entire cere- mony, from the invocation until the last degree is awarded, and the many con- gratulations from friends and relatives are hestowed. The inspiring addresses and the presence of the Board of Regents add to the solemnity of the ceremony. Four long years of work are climaxed hy this affair. The seniors go forth into the future with this last, most important event of their college careers etched into their memories. Perhaps the fullest sig- nificance of graduation will come i11 later years, hut none could witness a com- mencement ceremony without receiving some of the impact of the occasion.

The chapter sponsored window displays in the second floor show cases during the first week of school and during Boy Scout week.The mem- bers ushered at the Institute on W'orld Affairs lectures and at the President's reception. Spon- soring the Red Cross Blood Drive at 0. U. and helping with the Student Handbooks were also some ol' the services performed. Inci- dentally, 2418 pints of blood, IO0 pints more than were given last year, were donated. Dur- ing the Campus Chest Drive, an '4Ugly Man" contest was sponsored by the chapter. Stu- dents bought votes with contributions to the drive. Theta Chi active, Arnie Kreigler, won the contest and the honor due to the fact that he received the most money votes. The con- test was a success and probably will become an annual aiiair. The members also helped the Goodwill Industries, and they helped in X 3., ,X Au 'fi 'i Fog , ,,4, ,Q A .

After four days of rush parties, the new sorority members received pledge ribbons from Alpha Xi Delta, Chi Omega, Sigma Kappa, and Zeta Tau Alpha. In addition to planning and governing rushing activities, the Council supervised such sorority business as membership quotas, pledging, initiation, and scholarship. The Panhel- lenic Council also cooperated with the Interfraternity Council in directing the activities of OU,s fifth annual Creek Week, February 29 and March lc. Representatives to the Council from the various sororities included Patsy Cahow and Syntha Judd from Alpha Xi Delta, Jacqueline Zerbe and Doris Hanson from Chi Omega, Marilyn Everett and Nancy Spring from Sigma Kappa, and Nancy Hileman and Marcia Jourdan from Zeta Tau Alpha.

Plans for aiding various hospitals, welfare socie- ties, and other henehcial agencies were made hy the ten-man group and were carried out in an extensive program during the week of Fehruary 25 to March l. ln conjunction with Greek Week, many seminars were held at which officers of the national Creek organizations spoke. The week was climaxed with a banquet and a dance, attended hy all Creeks. Among other projects of the year was a revision of the constitution of the Council. Articles concerning eligibility for memhership on the council, and laws governing rushing were revised. Another function of the Interfraternity Council is the annual issuance of cards to all Greeks for admittance to all fraternity and sorority dances and other activities.

Through the combined efforts of the marching band and the Indian cheerlead- ers, school spirit and the backing of ath- letic teams took a decided boost during the 1951-1952 school year. The band, under the able direction of Dr. Robert Wi. Fiester, and the cheerleaders, captained by senior yell leader Jackie Zerbe, merged forces in an all out campaign for the hacking of the student body in all athletic contests. Beset by Hnothin, hut wind, rain, and snow," the hand prepared four half-time shows during the 1951 football season, but was able to present only two, with these being performed under generally poor weather conditions. The elements were present not only on game days, but raised havoc with the rehearsals as well. Soggy drum heads and clothes, frozen instruments and ears were a common si ght. Only on homecoming did things let up, and then the bandsrnen performed yeoman duties, playing and marching in the parade, during the rally on the Courthouse steps and in the pre-game and halftime ceremonies. Also du ring the gridiron season, Dr. Fies- ter and his pupils assisted at the pep rallies and, in addition, played for Founderls Day and marched in the SAC Parade. Next came the football banquet, then the basketball games and more pep rallies. And, as the yearbook went to the engravers, new parade formations were lmeing re- hearsed while hand inemhers were anx- iously awaiting the inauguration of a new letter award s stein.

Prohahly one ol the higgest assets of this year's squad was the addition of three male leads. It was the first year in several that the squad included men.

Every man who wore the lndian colors, either on the football field, the basketball floor, the baseball diamond, the track, the tennis court or the golf links could look only to his love of sports and to the admira- tion of fellow students for reward. Nevertheless, the Indians exhibited frequent flares of brilliance to offset those moments of utter humiliation. Their near victory over Northern Illi- nois State of DeKalb on the football field deprived the undefeated Illini of a bowl game bid. Highlight of a basketball season, sometimes good, sometimes bad, was the resumption of relations with neighboring Creighton University. Second- ary to the renewal of relations between these two traditional and natural rivals was Creightorfs expected two-game victory. As in previous seasons, the OUans7 strongest bids for distinction resulted from excellence in the so-called spring sports-tennis, baseball, track and golf-where the rewards for a job well done were restricted further by the conspicuous absence of cheering spectators. Much was still to be desired in the form of moral support from loyal fans. Empty sections of bleachers-usually so disheartening to the eleven men on the field and the thirty-three on the sidelines-were partially filled by the Junior Jets, an innovation of the new A.R.O.T.C. unit. Frigid weather on home-game days, however, thinned out attendance in other sections of the stadium. Any surviving sparks of enthusiasm were kept alive-occasionally fanned into flame-by the two organizations dedicated to pep and loyalty, the Wai'- riors and the Feathers-plus a battery of nine Hashily dressed cheerleaders. Nevertheless, there were too many students, too many alumni and too many patrons of OU who preferred watching the state university in a losing game to seeing Omahals own university in a victory. Hope for greater public support for the universityis sports program re- ceived impetus from the new and energetic Quarterback Club, which spon- sored ticket sales and a financially successful football banquet. University stock soared still higher o11 the national reputation earned by Alumnus Joe Arenas in his freshman season on the professional gridiron. ff! ff lfzlrlf ruzv: Housik.

Touchdown, as Indians rack Morningside 20-6 An on-again, off-again football season end- ed with the OU squad almost upsetting unde- feated and untied Northern Illinois in a thrill- packed contest. The Indian gridders held a six-point lead with but seconds remaining in the game, only to have the Illinois squad score on a desperation pass play and complete the conversion. Coach Lloyd Cardwell led the thin and in- jury-riddled eleven through a battery of top teams, to a final four-win, five-loss record. Not belonging to any conference, Omaha played teams that were either leaders or run- ners-up in their respective conferences. Coach Cardwell In the season's opener, Omaha traveled to Lincoln, Nebraska, to hand Nebraska Wes- leyan, traditional opening day rival, a 25-O whitewashing. llut the feeling of victory was short-lived as the Indians went on to drop three straight to South Dakota, Washburn, and Doane. The So-Daks visited Umahais stadium and were treated to a 27-l9 con- quest. The next week Cardwellis Indians journeyed to Topeka, and sulfered a I6-7 setback to Yvashburn. Still on the road, Omaha stopped at Crete, Nebraska, where Potts punts lndian blockers cut down SoDaks on punt return Keith Christie picks up important yardage for OU in the South Dakota game Doane surprised the Indians with a 20-14 shellacking. But Ouampi bounce back on the winning road with a 16-7 win over Kansas State of Emporia, after re- ceiving spirit from a two-day Horne- coming celebration. ln the next out- ing, Omaha traveled to Detroit and suffered a 62-9 loss at the hands of the powerful Wayne University gridders. The Red and Black suddenly got a winning streak and bowled over two tough rivals, Morningside and Simp- son College, 20-6 and 34-18 respect- ively. The season ended with the heart-breaking loss to Northern Illi- nois in the last 40 seconds of play in the University Stadium. Pesky Jerry Ziehe and reliable Keith Christie led the OU offense. Coach Cardwell and his assistants will have to find replacements for seven seniors that finished their collegiate career last season - Dick Lane, Ho- ward Byram, Forest Weste1'i11g, Joe Gurnett, Jack Annin, and John Potts.

Omaha returned home to down Doane, 63-49, for their second straight win over the Tigers, and proceeded to lincoln, Ne- hraska to trip Nehraska Vlfesleyan 5l-33. The first Creighton encounter was next with the Indians dropping a 41-7-58 decision to the tall lilue- jays. A hriel taste of victory was enjoyed hy the Omahans as they downed Nehraska Wesleyan for the second time, this time on the OU court hy a 5I-38 score. But the worst was yet to come, as the Omahans soon found. The Redmen traveled to Augustana College in Sioux Falls, South Dakota and suffered the first loss oi' a three game losing streak, 60-641. Cornell College was tl1e next Indian conqueror, racing to an 83-65 victory in Mt. Ver- non, Iowa. Returning to Omaha the Indians led lVIorningside all through the game, only to drop an overtime decision, 741--78. But OU was more fortunate in its next two frays, taking a 63-59 victory over Washhnrn and dropping Simpson, 55-53, in a thrill packed en- counter. Both games were on the Omaha court. Colorado College treated Omaha to a 76-53 defeat on their own court in Colorado Springs in the next to the last game ol the season. In the last 1'egularly scheduled game of the year Creighton added insult to injury on the Hilltop floor hy handing the Omaha five a 90--1-O shellacking. An elusive hall escapes driving Bob Mackie Holm Rose and Fred Shinroeli were the most consiste leading a close was the nt of the Omaha players. Hose was the Omaha scorer for the year with Shinroek second. Hose's 29 points against Peru top individual peilormance of the season. Don Claussen hooks a left hander toward the hoop in early season fray with Nebraska Ivesleyan alaoozied Thrilling finishes highlighted the Papoose basketball season during 1951-52. Under the command of Athletic Director Tom Brock, the young Indians produced in the waning seconds to grab several close wins, including a 42-41 conquest of Creighton's HBH team, a 1148-47 victory over the Ne- braska Wesleyarr seconds, and a 49-47 squeeze past the Wvishhone quintet. ln sev- eral other contests the margin was nearly as close, but not always in favor of the Omaha seconds. In the won-lost column the Papooses scored eight victories while suifering live defeats to compile a .625 average. Several of the young Redrnen displayed prospects and cast reflections of things to come. Prob- ably the top member of the Papoose squad was center Larry Johnson. However, he was lost to the Omaha reserves in mid-Feb- ruary when he moved up to the varsity to fill in for the loss of Don Claussen. Larry saw considerable action for the varsity, corn- piling 29 points and pacing the UAF squad with ten points in the second Creighton game. Freshman John Cottrell was also a lead- ing member of the Papooses. Cottrell de- veloped an excellent jump shot and trernen- dous driving power. He also was in suit for one of the last varsity clashes. Forrest HFrosty,' Weste1'ing was the steading power of the reserve quintet. It was Wester'irrg's hook shot with but seconds remaining in the game that gave the Omahans the 42-41 vic- tory over Creighton. Although the varsity cagers were unable to gain a victory over arch-rival Creighton during the season, the Papooses upheld the Indian honor by downing the young Creigh- toniarrs in both meetings. The first was the 41-2-41 win in the Omaha Fieldhouse in early February while the second was a 64--59 conquest in the last game of the season to end the year on a winning note. 558 15 any ml Baal. row: Cottrell, McKee, Jensen, Schmidt, Christie, Hansen, Front row: Fratt, Petersen, Smith, Johnson, Westering, Wagner gaifegaf 1 Qf , . 15 , x,gx,x .Av I - ,Sy 4, Vx , "1 NM 2 4 ' 1 .L V, , jf , ' XT! 1 , '13 li A n 1' f ' fwf' f,7 + y W f ww !,1c,'Jf'M 5 , , 'Wy 'bf "I I 'xy A pf" ' '97, If v 'f ,Q X : u K I L.: Af my 1- 'W 1 N81 1 Q90 ZW 1 .X A w':4'1wl , wil: gt M' g ' ' I, .

The records show that they were not able to place higher than second in any of the meets, but there were some individual per- formances that brightened the picture con- siderably. The track crew opened their season with a trian- gular meet against South Dakota and Wayrle State. It was somewhat of a run- away for the SoDaks,with OU a poor third. Next come a contest with WilSI1' Coach CON' burn, Doane, and Peru. ...all in Again the Indians finished last. Things began to look a little brighter when the thinclads moved into third place in a field of four that consisted of lVlaryville Teachers, Peru State Teachers and Tarkio. ln another Quadrangular, the Indians' potential began to be felt as they left Nebraska Vlfesleyan and Dana in the dust, to move into second place behind Concordia. In- the last contest of the season against Simp- son and Iowa Central, the cinder crew came up fast to press the leader, Simpson, and fin- ished a strong second. In the individual performances, Joe Nalty seemed to be the shining star. In both the Sioux City and Doane Relays, he raced to Hrst place i11 the I00 yard dash. Huck row: Cardwell, Wootlle, L.

To bring them together and through them build an organization that will assume its role in the atlairs of the university becomes a tre- mendous task. This is the job, though, that is being ac- complished by the Alumni Association of the University of Omaha. Through the leadership that has been provided by able and competent officers and the services of a full-time executive-secretary, much has been achieved in the past year. The challenges presented by an ever growing, progressing institution, like our university, to its alumni association are great, and the opportunities are many. It has been said that a uwhisper cannot convey a tone." The voice of our Alumni Association is no longer a whisper. Eddie Howe, President The first membership in the alum- ni association for 1952 was pre- sented to Chief Nunkagthaze, tvifal- ter Hamiltonj, chief of the Omaha Indian Tribe at their animal pow- wow at Macy, Nebraska. Presenta- tion was made by Joe Baker, past president of the alumni association. In the spring of ,5l, the Alumni ended their Hrst year of publishing Joe Baker presents first 1952 Alumni membership to Chief Nunkagthaze the uInjun,', the official and infor- mal alumni magazine.

Dr. Shearer, a prominent oral and plastic surgeon, was graduated from Omaha Univer- sity in 1921, and has practiced in Omaha for 49 years. He founded the American Association of Plastic Surgeons, and was the originator of a new operation for cleft palate and lip. After a reception for Dr. Shearer, he was presented with the University of Omaha Alumni Association Achievement Scroll, and a life memhership in the Alumni Association. Reunion Day activities featured reunions of the classes of I946, 1941, 1936, 1931, 1926, 1921, 1916 and 1911. Brief reports were given on the activities of reunion classes, and a Reunion Day talk, iGWhdt6VC1' Happened to Wfhats- hisname?,, was presented. The first activity under Mr. Adams, direc- tion was the Alumni Picnic, held Saturday, August 18, 1951 at Peony Park. Over 100 alums took part in the games, entertainment, and refreshments planned for them. The chairman of the picnic committee was Mrs. Charles Ammons. Assisting her were Sherry Seitzer, lVladeline Elliot, and ,lean Rousek. Picnic activities inciuded a hasehall game, a shoe kicking contest for the ladies, and a penny tossing game.

The beginning of the school year saw, at least i11 the American scene, a fairly normal War loarometerg predictions of a third global conflict had largely condi- tioned themselves out of immediacy. Yet, that a war was being fought there could he no doubt: 100,000 U. S. casualties were living - or dead - proof. They were proof, too, of the Politburo method of aggrandizement --- a steady hleeding of American economic and military strength through peripheral wars of attrition.

But foreign policy, in its present context, had to rely chiefly on armed force. In line with the stepped-up mili- tary program, the University was one of sev- eral educational institutions selected by the Air Force for an ROTC establishment. Wel- comed by President Bail as Nan essential part of the education of today,s college man," the program, while operating within the frame- work of the regular University curriculum, is specifically designed to qualify students for active duty with the Air Force. Cadets normally pursue a four-year pro- gram consisting of a two-year basic course, a two-year advanced course, and a summer en- campment. The basic course emphasizes mil- itary subjects common to all components of the Military Establishment. In the advanced course the cadet specializes in the field most closely related to his academic majorf-either Administration, Logistics, General Technical, or Flight Operations. The summer encamp- ment, coming between the junior and senior C Lt. Col. Allen ll. Wvood, I rofes sor of Air Science and Tactics years, offers the cadet the opportunity to ap- ply theories learned in the classroom. Cadets are organized around a Wiitg, which is broken down into Groups, Squadrons, Flights, and Elements. Since the administra- tio11 of the program by the cadets themselves is an excellent means for developing leader- ship qualities, the permanent personnel act primarily in a teaching and advisory capacity.

Hood explains the constant pressure hydraulic system used in aircraft for control of landing gear, cnginc cowl flaps, bomb bay doors and other aircraft mechanisms Uwe Rifle Team As part of its community service program, the Arnold Society cooperates with the Ex- plorer Scouts, who are senior menihers of the Boy Scouts of America. Members attend classes in radio, map reading, and meteorol- ogy twice every month at the University under the supervision of the Arnold Society and per- manent staff personnel. Tentative plans pro- vide for a turnover membership of l0O scouts, with a certificate of recognition awarded to all scouts who successfully complete the six months course.

The issue was, simply, the struggle for freedom, freedom in its most profound sense: the inviolate right of the human spirit to endeavor to find truth as it might he found. But a world in which this value might he pur- sued hy all men, a world cemented hy an un- shakeable conviction in the brotherhood of man would come only when the abstraction of freedom was translated into reality. Wlieii such a realization would come, no one knewg how it would come seemed clear: in the purga- tion of war, either civil war inside Russia or national war against her rulers from without, and in the transition following chaos. ln either event the cost would be high. But it would be paid: human greatness would not how to hu- man depravity. ln that there was certainty. eriioonaigigfy: fAe price 0 freedom ,. fn., ... -Wide World l'hoto Wide World Photo The year l95l might well go down in history as the Hyear of crisisf' Abroad, the United Nations, largely through the support of American arms, was husy defending itself against the encroachment of communist aggression. This defense took many forms. ln Korea the conHict was physical. De- spite the hopes of a truce hy Christmas, the guns continued to roar. The evergrowing list of casualties caused many Americans to wonder, some thoughtfully-some hysterically, at the new role ofthe United States as a uPOLlCEMAN.', ln Europe the defense consisted, in the main, of pouring men and materiel to holster the defense of the weakened democracies. The growing American Army in Europe was a 'Lred hot" issue at home. Never before in peacetime had the United States ventured to send large bodies of troops abroad. Washiiigtonis warning against uforeign entangle- mentsw was oft-quoted in many quarters. Other areas of the defense against Wo1'ld Communism raised still more controversial questions. We were sup- porting communism in Yugoslavia and the prospects of an alliance with Fascist Spain were growing. ln France, as --Wide World Photo Well as other European countries, the inevitability of arming Germany to man its ramparts had caused a wave of pro- test. At home, continued 1'evelations of corruption and subversion in high places shook the Administration to its founda- tions. Mink coats and deep freezes were rapidly reclassified as 'Lhot potatoes." No one in government seemed immune from the searching finger of suspicion. Many talented men concluded that the rewards of serving their country were hardly worth the candle. The feeling of being haunted hy sub- versive agents was not confined to a certain senator from Yvisconsin. In Cod and Man at Yale, a young grad- uate accused the staid faculty of spend- ing four years to indoctrinate him in the paths of Godless materialism. The re- sounding protest from the faculty of the University of California will not soon be forgotten. To some, loyalty oaths seemed to seriously threaten our heri- tage of academic freedom. To others, it was a simple act of faith. No one could deny that many free- doms had actually heen curtailed. Press censorship, practically speaking, existed in many areas. Despite the protests of business men, economic controls were again estalilished. Young men were again being called to serve their country in the armed forces, some to return, some to i::"""-4 -Wide World Photo . .ff . :sf-4' if1t""'---A-w..! .iv Wit? fa. 2 .

Hardly anyone remained who would willingly accept the label of "isolationist.,, The question in most quarters was: Hhow far could we go?n Could we continue to pour billions into armament and foreign subsidies and still maintain a sound economy at home? Could we preserve world democracy while we were in the process of restricting it at home? To many, a biblical paraphrase seemed appropriate: uWhat will it profit the United States to gain the world and lose its own soul?,' Although taxes continued to rise, prosperity seemed as high as ever before. Defense contracts boosted em- ployment totals to record breaking heights. Henry Wallaceis dream of 60 million jobs became a reality though few noticed it. Despite defense allocation, con- sumer goods poured into the nationis market in an ever- creasing flood. We were enjoying uguns and butteri' at the same time, but for how much longer no one knew. The politicians, as usual, were the last to grasp the situation. Not that they hadn't capitalized on it. One group was using the 'cpolice actionv as an excuse for spend- ing on an unparalleled level-the other group found it a good argument for throw- ing the urascalsw out of Washington. Few, if any, wanted to face up to the problem -'LWhe1'e do we go from here?M Hind- sight-the ability to look back, criticize, and explain what should have been done-H had been substituted for the really hard job of planning for future action. One presidential aspirant seemed to have the problem pegged. 44We should plot our foreign policy by the stars," he said, Hand not by every passing ship." -U. S. Air Force Photo Released b y Dept. of Defense Never before l1ad the future seemed so uncertain. Few attempted to predict the course of future events and those who did found themselves assailed on all sides. Collier's picture of a world conflict between the United States and Russia was variously interpreted as a gloomy prophecy, a call to arms and outright warmongering. Others felt that we were teetering on the hrink of the total destruction of all civilization. One thing seemed certain: Americans, caught up in the whirlpool of a rapidly changing world, needed to search their souls for courage to accept the responsihilites forced upon them in an atomic age. ' L as 1, foria! Summary Thus the curtain falls on four years of college life. This yearbook, like the previous editions of the Tomahawk, will be tucked away on the shelf with the others - to be thumbed through in leisure hours i11 the years to come. It is to be hoped that, in those future years, many of the problems our country faces today will have been solved, that the period of ucrisisn will have passed, that our children will grow to maturity in a world at peace. Yet, the solution to those problems and the consequent return of peace is largely, it would seem, to be inter- preted in terms of a responsibility of this generation. Problems, as a general rule, do 11ot just 'csolve themselves," nor is peace such a general rule of nature that it settles about those who vaguely hope for it. Wluch as we like to believe in the triumph of good over evil or the efficacy of prayer, we must be realistic enough to accept the aphorism that uGod helps those who help themselvesf, Responsibility is the price of freedom. And responsibility in the patriotic, econ- omic or political realm, as in day to day life, must inevitably be shouldered in propor- tion to a man's ability to carry it. The college graduate has evidenced, by virtue of his successful completion of prescribed college curricula leading to a degree, his ability to shoulder more of the load than his fellow man. Lest we gloat over this conclusion, it might be pointed out that there is little to indicate that todayis graduate is carrying his share of responsibility. On the contrary, an outsider, a visitor to these shores might well wonder what use our country is making of this vast store of untapped intellectual and moral wealth we so often boast of. There is, of course, no specific remedy to these problems. We cannot, by hopeful words, change the course of history. The solution, like Aristotle's concept of the soul, must be a cumulative thing, reaching its fruition after much searching and struggle. For a coun- try to steer its course wisely toward a progressively better way of life, leaders are needed. If that peaceful world is going to materialize, we must start building for it now. We can no longer simply ask ourselves upon graduation if we are ready to assume this responsibility. That decision was snatched away with the first atomic explosion and with the committal of our fighting forces in Korea. The legacy of leadership has come with the secrets of atomic fission. We are leaders in a world that needs leading badly. It is a job in which there is no room for failure. .7Ae om Y0u'll Favor the Flavor.. Nothing Cooks Western Printing Co.
