PLACE: Living room of a modest home. CHARACTERS: Ouampi, Mrs. Ouampi (for- merly Ouahama) and their son Tommy Hav k. Ouampi (the Spirit of Omaha U ) is mar- ried to a college classmate, Ouahama. They have a little son. Tommy Hawk (the Continu- ing Spirit of Omaha U ). One evening Ou- ampi and his wife started to plan for Tom- my ' s future education while watching him play with his blocks on the floor. Then they began to think back . . . Those were the days — O. U., 1952! 2 It was our first date! To the music of Eddy Haddod and his Orchestra, the annual Junior Prom got under way at Peony Park on the 21st of March, 1952. At intermission time, Joanne Larkin was crowned Junior Prom Queen. Other candi- dates included Patsy Cahow, Marcia Jourdan, Syntha Judd, Charlotte Longville and Marilyn Sibert. Juniors serving on committees for the Prom were Donna Edstrand, Syntha Judd, Howard Olson, Ray Hamp- ton and Jim Townsend. Also serving on committees were Marilyn Sibert, Patsy Cahow, Joanne Larkin, Paula Dieh! and Merlyn Fratt. March 28th and 29th saw the production of the University Players Spring play " John Loves Mary. " The three act comedy by Norman Krasna starred Del Hanson and Elaine Bloxom in the title roles, with Bonny Burgess, Dick Smith, Don Blocker, and Jack Frost in the supporting parts. Other sup- porting players included Leanore Marx, Jack Dunlevy, Jim McPherson and Ben But- ler, while Bill Pierson was stage manager. Chairmen of the play committees were Bob Hanson, make-up; Anita Reznichek, props; and Phil Abramson, publicity. The produc- tion was directed by Dr. Edwin Clark, dra- matics professor. Marx and Smith look at Bloxom and Hanson, the center of confusion. »i,f« kk I 1 vwy «■■■ ' -- ' « -f. i flat! miir ' " General " Jock Frost calls the Pentagon. 7 8 Scenes like these replaced classroom routine as OU stu- dents joined the army of volun- teers who kept " Old Muddy " out of Omaha and Council Bluffs. Over 900 students, faculty and staff members worked long hours to defeat the Missouri River. The lights burned all night as trucklood after truckload of workers went out from flood headquarters in the Student Lounge. University women also volun- teered their services and in one 12 hour period over 15,000 sandwiches were made in the home ec. lab. The dike workers were not to go hungry. It was three months before either of us could look a sandwich in the face. The crest came. The dikes held. The next Monday, school was back to normal.

The program was divided into two distinct parts, the first depicting the history of dance and the second being an abstract interpretation of the mind of an unstable young girl. The first part of the program showed the styles of the primitives, Greeks, European folk dancers, and European court dancers. The polished gestures of the aristocratic dances were expressed in the Pavane, Gigue, Sarabande, and the Minuet. Dancing in the American style was shown in the " American Folk Suite, " , which mcluded three parts. " Prayer in De Key " was danced by Jean Janzan and sung by Terry Young. The melancholy mood of " Allentown Jail " was danced by Alyce Beachler to the singing of Helen Tiahrt. Terry Young again sang wh.le Beverly Brandt danced " Honor, Honor. " Bonnie Coleman danced to Artistry m Blue " by Stan Kenton to explain the development of progres- sive music. r » The second part of the program presented Jane Englehardt, who played the port of a person unable to accept the challenge of reality while the other Orchesis members showed the working of her mind, her problems and the resulting indecision from her instability. Finally at the depth of her despair her remembrances and then her dreams gave her hope of what migtit still possibly be gained. 12 Left to right: Pat Cosford, Sue Yetter, Ruth Waschinek, Jean Madden, Ann McTaggert, Jean Janzan, Joan Olsen, Jane Engle- hardt, Janet Dugdale, Pat Vorel, Alyce Beachler, Frances Downey, Laura Dopita, Bonnie Coleman.

ORCHESIS Modern Dance Group Modern dance is a means of artistic communi- cation which makes use of the whole body in expressive movement. It includes training and conditioning, so that the body will be able to respond to the dancer ' s demands. This increas- ingly creative communication is embodied in Or- chesis, the selective, honorary modern dance group on campus. Under the sponsorship of Miss Mary Lou Nieb- ling, Orchesis has participated not only in week- ly dance instruction, but also in such things as an Indian dance during Homecoming half-time ceremonies and a specialty number, " The Street Scene, " in the first annual Sport Show at Tech High. The Spring Dance Concert made up of modern dance, was initiated as an annual program. Other special appearances during the year in- cluded a dance recital performed for the Nor- folk Women ' s Club, and a show on the TV Class- room series. Serving as officers for 1952-53 were Alyce Beachler, president; Joan Olsen, secretary; and Derelle Blumer, publicity director. Since modernism is the popular trend, Orchesis is finding more of a place for itself on campus. 13 The " Get out and vote " campaign in- spired by the national interest in the presidential elections, increased the num- ber of voters in the OU elections of 1952. Posters and people dressed in cos- tumes, plus the pleas of Igor the Great Done, swayed the students to the follov - ing decisions. The new Student Council members were seniors Ray Hampton, Irv Jones, Syntho Judd, and Marilyn Sibert; juniors Larry Brehm, Merlyn Fratt, Derelle Blumer, and Phyllis Wilke; sopho- mores Jerry Tannahill, Gerald Welling, Joanne Gross, and Joan Willey. Fresh- men Council members were elected in the fall. The two new elected members of the Board of Student Publications were Jo- anne Larkin and Burt McMillan. Though the secret was kept until Ma-ie Day, Gloria Johnson had been elected Princess Attira XVIII. A special write-in vote showed that the students were favorable to the proposed Student Union though it was still very much in the planning stage. 14 Left to right: Larry Brehm, Phyllis Wilke, Jerry Tannahill, Pat Cosford, Mary Jane Jeter, Marilyn Sibert, Jerry Welling, Kyle Petit, Merlyn Fratt, Ray Hampton, Mary Cosford, Syntha Judd, Derelle Bluitier, Joan Willey, Dr. Jay McGregor, Irv Jones. The Student Council, as the elected representatives of the student body, form a link between them and the faculty and administration. The duties of the Stu- dent Council include supervising the ac- tivities of school organizations and spon- soring most of the major campus activi- ties. Last year, the Student Council closed the spring semester as usual by spon- soring the annual Junior Prom and the Ma-ie Day election and festivities. How could we ever forget the Ma-ie Day elections, with the eight foot owls, dogs . . . and remember the girls who wore boxes over their heads or fancy costumes? The Student Council began their fall duties by directing the preparations for Homecoming, the Freshman Mixer, and the Freshman Talent Show, and by spon- soring the fall play which was, this year, the comedy " Goodbye, My Fancy. " Other activities sponsored by the Stu- dent Council during the year included the Sophomore Cotillion, " Anything Goes, " which was this year ' s Tom-Tom Revue, and less colorful but equally necessary activities such as the all-school elections and the Campus Chest drive, conducted annually to collect funds for the Omaha Community Chest, the Red Cross and the World Student Service Fund. Left to right: Vice-President Fratt, Treasurer Blumer, Secretary Willey, President Hampton. 15 The Student Council The Student Council also serves as a clearing ground for student suggestions and sponsors such events, beside those already mentioned, as the annual Dad ' s Day, held during the football season and the Coffee Hours, held approximately once a month in the faculty clubroom. The Coffee Hours are planned jointly by faculty member Paul Beck and by a representative of the Student Council and have included, this year, talks by David Goitoin, the minister to the United States from Israel, members of the fac- ulty and discussions by student panels. Oh yes, Mr. Goitoin gave a fascinating talk that day. The Student Council president for 1952-53 was Ray Hampton and the vice- president, Merlyn Fratt. Joan Willey served as secretary and Derelle Blumer as treasurer. Members of the Student Council: Seniors: Ray Hampton, Syntha Judd, Irv Jones, Marilyn Sibert. Juniors: Merlyn Fratt, Phyllis Wilke, Larry Brehm, Derelle Blumer. Sophomores: Joan Willey, Joanne Gross, Pat Cosford, Jerry Tannohill, Jerry Welling.

Board of Student Publications and Publications Business Staff Left to right: Ken Borcher, Bill McVicker, Robert Benecke Publications at the University were directed again this year by the Board of Student Publications. The Board was made up of appointed and elected stu- dents and members of the faculty. In the spring elections Joanne Larkin and Burton McMillan were elected to serve on the Board along with Larry Boersma, Tomahawk editor, and Bob Benecke, publications business manager. Faculty members were Miss Hollie Bethel, Clif- ford Ellis, Mrs. Mildred Gearhart, Ernie Gorr, Charles Hoff, and Robert McGrana- han. All business transactions dealing with publications at the University were handled by the business staff. Heading the staff was Bob Benecke, business manager, who was assisted by Ken Borcher, circulation manager, and Bill McVicker, advertising manager. 17 Joe College ' Dance Two new innovations showed themselves on OU ' s campus the night of the " Joe College " dance. The annual event, sponsored by the Feathers, women ' s pep organization, was the first dance held on the front steps of the admin- istration building. Hungry appetites were satis- fied after the dance by the first pizza feed which was held in the shack. Highlight of the evening was the crowning of " Joe College " during the dance intermission. Don West, 6 foot 1 Theta Chi, was the tenth " Joe College " to be picked at OU. He was crowned with a red baseball cap by Mrs. Mary Padou Young. All girls present at the dance were en- titled to vote. Lights were strung across the steps and at- tached to the building ' s wings. Music was by record via an amplifying system.

Feathers The annual election to choose a " Joe College " is sponsored by the Feathers organization. For the last Joe College Dance, Feathers introduced a new dance site— the front walk of the University, with temporary strings of lights ar- ranged especially for the occasion. Jo Ann Doyle headed the planning commit- tee for this year ' s event. The Feathers are the Omaha Univer- sity chapter of Phi Sigma Chi, national honorary service organization for upper class college women. The members can be seen at most of the school ' s major extra-curricular activities, comprising a cheering section at football and basket- ball games. They are now wearing new uniforms, chosen at one of the first meet- ings last fall. They consist of a red skirt, white sweater, and black dickey, keep- ing the traditional red and black colors of the University. The fall rush tea, held in the Faculty Club Room of the University, started the year ' s activities, and was followed by a formal pledging and buffet dinner on October 26 to present the 27 selected girls with their red pledge feathers. Feathers usher at various University functions and convocations and partici- pate in planning and conducting pep rallies and half-time activities at the foot- ball games. Officers for this year were Shirley Swahn, president; Mary Svack, vice pres- ident; Catherine Lampert, recording sec- retary; Dixie Clark, corresponding secre- tary; Virginia Bosonac, treasurer; Joyce Sundsboe, inter-pep representative; and Dorothy Ruby, publicity chairman. Miss Vera Duerschner and Dr. Frances Holliday are sponsors for the organiza- tion. 19 . . . In the grey light of dawn, the last worker laid down his hammer and we said, " Our float ' s finished! " The all-night session working on the floats is becoming as traditional as the Ma-ie Day break- fast and the crowning of the princess. This year, because of bad weather, the breakfast was served in the cafeteria and Gloria Johnson was crowned Princess Attira XVIII from the stage of the auditorium. Later, the skies cleared enough to allow the parade to proceed and that afternoon the or- ganizational skits were presented in the audi- t orium. At 9:00 that night, the annual Ma-ie Day dance was held at Peony Park and the winners of the float and skit contests were an- nounced. 20 GLORIA JOHNSON . . .

Coming down Pod May 12 can very well serve as the focal point for victories at Omaha University in all of the Spring Sports. Eleven wins in fourteen encounters marks success on the record books for the Indian diamond crew. Under the supervision of Mentor Thurmon Johnson, the baseballers took little mercy on some of their more potent competition with scores like 1 4 to 1 against Morningside on May 12, 9 to 1 over Augustana, and 9 to 0 over Creighton. Rounding out their last season much to the disadvantage of the OU ball and bat department were Pitchers Bud Bri- denbaugh and Gary Penisten, outfielder Johnny Potts, and infielder Larry Mich- eels.

Fred Pisasale, four year letterman, who served two of those years as Cap- tain of the net squad, finished his fourth year on the OU tennis courts. Pisasale had an amazing accumulative four year record of 48 wins and five losses in singles competition and a 49-4 won-lost record in doubles action.

Standouts on Campbell ' s golf team were Dean Wilson and Bob Lindberg who fought it out nip and tuck through- out the season for top laurels. Competi- tion ended with Wilson slightly out- matching Lindberg by winning 13 to Lindberg ' s 12 out of 17 matches. Left to right: Back row, Jauss, Wilson, Norene, Coach Campbell.

Despite a wet season the Indian trackmen accumu- lated a .625 season ' s average with five victories and three defeats in the combined indoor and outdoor stand- as ings. Besides the eight meets in which scores were kept, the thinclads also competed in the Kansas, Wayne, Sioux City and Doane Relays. In the Wayne relays Roger Dunbier, freshman stal- wart, ended in o three-way tie for first place in the high jump with a leap of 5 ' 11 " . The OU relay team set a new school record at the Sioux City relays. The team composed of Jerry Tanna- hill, Charles Hays, Bob Schropp and Joe Nalty ran the relay in 1:31 .4. Joe Nalty won the hundred yard dash in all three relays. His best time was registered at Doane when he set a new OU record and a new Doane relay record by running the 100 in :09.9.

After a speech by Miss Elvira Christianson, former President of the Nebraska Physical Edu- cation Association, a traveling trophy was pre- sented to Chi Omega, elected the outstanding team in women ' s athletic competition. Plaques for individual championships were presented and OUWI officers for the ensuing year were revealed. They were Gayle Fried, president; Beverly Petersen, vice-president; Joan Thorson, secretary-treasurer; and Jane Andersen, pub- icity chairman. The gun sounded on February 1 1 starting both the first basketball game and the first phase of 1952 women ' s spring sports. When the rumble of sneoker-clad feet finally subsided, the victory cry rose from the Unaffiliated teammates as they downed Chi Omega for the fourth straight year and again assumed possession of the basketball championship. Archery was the center of attraction in the early part of March when the marksmanship of Doris Akerstrom netted her top honors in the OUWI bow and arrow department. A colorful and festive square dance sponsored by OUWI was also held in the early part of March in the University auditorium. The final days of March saw Nancy Will de- feat all challengers in table tennis competition. The beginning of April found Shirley White and Irene Lister in the winners circle for their re- spective victories in tennis and golf. On April 5 five Omaha high schools attended the annual playday sponsored by the Women ' s Athletic Department and the annual college play- day, attended by women from nine Nebraska State colleqes, was held on April 26. Military Ball One of the highlights of the ROTC year was the Universi- ty ' s first Military Ball. Following the Inspection the Military Ball was held at Peo- ny Park under the command of Cadet Colonel Robert Dar- rah. Cadet officers and mem- bers of the Angels Flight par- ticipated in the Grand March. Marilyn Sibert was elected Honorary Colonel by mem- bers of the Arnold Air Society and took command of festivi- ties at intermission ceremo- nies. Above: Candidates for Honorary Colonel 35 i Another highlight of the spring semester was the Federal Inspection. The Inspection was held May 15 and 16 with officers from the Tenth Air Force conduct- ing a review of the cadets after watching the Wing under the command of Cadet Colonel Robert Stryker parade in the football stadium. The officers also in- spected administrative and teaching techniques of the ROTC facilities at the University. With the close of the spring semester, the 470th Air Force Cadet Wing ended its first year on the Omaha University campus. It was a year for which both instructors and cadets could be justly proud as it saw an unorganized unit blossom into a well trained, impressive wing in the space of a few short months. With the coming of summer, forty-five advanced cadets received four week camp assignments. Three groups of fifteen cadets began training June 23 at Sheppard Air Force Base, Texas; Lowry Air Force Base, Colorado and Rapid City Air Force Base, South Dakota. While at camp the cadets received regular base pay of an airman, plus food and quarters. They received instruction in flight training, marksmanship, leader- ship, drill, athletics and other military subjects. 36 Left to right: Back row, AAarianne Bowley, Gayle Anderson, Pat Vorel.

Cadet enrollment in- creased from 300 to almost 700 men and brought additions to the permanent personnel of the Air Force staff. Quarters for the expanding unit were added in the west wing of the first floor for ad- ministrative and class work and in the Fieldhouse for supply purposes. Along with other activities of the ROTC department, a rifle team was organized and directed by Master Sergeant William Swink as an extra curricular activity for all marksmen enrolled in the ROTC pro- gram. The team held matches and prac- tice sessions on a rifle range that was constructed under the stands of the foot- ball stadium. Results of the first year ' s competition saw the team finish third in the Intercity League with fourteen wins against seven losses and a percentage average of .9260 for all points fired in competition. High scorers for the year were Frank Sedlacek, who took first place in the prone, sitting and kneeling positions; Gilbert Davis, who was high man in all four positions and also took first place in the standing position, and Darrel Cox, who fired the highest indi- vidual score for one match. During the year the team competed with club teams from the Omaha area, other college and university teams and reserve service teams. Members of the team were Frank Sed- lacek, range officer; Gilbert Davis; Rob- ert Forrey; Darrel Cox; Glen Gowan; Donald Olson; Donald Schroder; James Ryan; Fred McCormick; Samuel Georges; Ronald Smith; Emmett Shields; Gerald Welling; Tony Roth and Gilbert Uhler. Besides the regular rifle team, a girls ' rifle team was organized under the di- rection of the ROTC department. The team practiced on the Fieldhouse range and held matches with various teams in the city. Officers for the rifle club were Jo Thorson, president; Bette Ann Poska, vice-president; and Ruth Wachinek, sec- retary. Team members were Gayle An- derson, Janet Anderson, Marianne Bow- ley, Kay Harrington, Marilyn Herbes, Roe Johnson, Ruth Longville, Jo Anne Sedlacek and Pat Vorel. 37 Left to right: Fourth row; Zwart, Glass, Kummer, Fraenkel, Carpenter, Belgrade, Berlgon.

Hoag Squadron of the Ar- nold Air Society, a notional fraternal or- ganization of Advanced Air Force ROTC students, climaxed its first year of or- ganization on the campus with the first annual Military Ball on May 18, 1952 at Peony Park Ballroom. Highlights of the ball were the presentation of the Honor- ary Colonel, Miss Marilyn Sibert, and the promotion of two cadet officers, Robert Darroh and Robert Stryker, to the rank of Colonel. Tony Pastor and his orchestra played for the boll. The charter membership of the society was increased in the fall when 74 ad- vanced cadets were pledged into the or- ganization. Initiation ceremonies took place on December 7, 1952. The unit gained national recognition in two fields at the society ' s national conclave in Los Angeles during Thanks- giving vacation. Next year ' s national convention will be held on the Omaha U campus. Also, the name " Angels, " was adopted for all coed affiliates of other Arnold Air Society squadrons. Omaha delegates flying to the con- vention were Jack Katz, the Society ' s commanding off ' cer, and Robert Biegel, its executive officer. The Junior Jets, sponsored by the Ar- nold Air Society, had a full year of activ- ities. A program was held before Home- coming gome at which time 300 Junior Jets— sixth, seventh, and eighth grade 38 Angels and Jr. Jets sponsored groups. two Arnold Air Society boys and girls interested in aviation and sports— were awarded their wings for being active in the organization for a year. They attended football and basket- ball games as guests of the University. Meetings were held prior to each gome. The Arnold Society also sponsors the Angels, on honorary coed flight. The two groups assist each other in projects during the year clinnaxed by the joint sponsorship of the Military Ball. The Society also has an active part in the Explorer Scout program. Officers for the 1952-53 school year were Commanding Officer, Jack Katz; Executive Officer, Robert Biegel; Opera- tions Officer, Ray Hampton; Adjutant Recorder, James Wright; Treasurer, Ken- neth Kremers; Publications Officer, Fred Bantin; Public Relations Officer, Burt Mc- Millan; and Athletic Officer, Robert Schropp. Left to right: fourth row; Peck, Bauer, Springer, NIcklen, Albert, Westin, Vana, Bucknam, Cherling, Klein, Erixon, Nelson.

Angels Flight The Angels Flight, co-ed auxiliary or- ganization of the Arnold Air Society achieved national status this year. The Angels Flight was adoted as the name for all co-ed associate groups at the Ar- nold Air Society convention in Los Ang- eles in November.

WAOKIYA Senior Women ' s Honorary Society The 1952 spritig tapping ceremony of Waokiya was held at the annual All- School Sing which is co-sponsored by this group and Omicron Delta Kappa, the men ' s honorary leadership fraternity. Two of the girls tapped at that time were seniors and therefore were unable to participate in the 1952-53 activities. They were Charlotte Weinberg and Nan- cy Will. Marilyn Cowger, also tapped, entered medical school at the end of the year. Waokiya is a relatively new honorary society for outstanding senior women. This year the membership included seven seniors and five faculty members. The activities for 1952-53 included a tea for interested v omen in the sopho- more and junior classes. The purpose of the tea was to inform the girls about the group and the qualifications necessary to be tapped. Waokiya membership is based on leadership or activities as well as schol- arship. Besides being in the top 35% of all women in their class, these women must be active members of several activ- ities such as social, religious, or profes- sional groups, dramatics, journalism, stu- dent council, honorary clubs, or athletics. Officers for the year were Jane Hoff, president; Leonore Marx, vice-president; Joanne Larkin, secretary; and Mrs. Mil- dred Gearhart, treasurer. Faculty spon- sor is Mrs. Mary Padou Young. Faculty members are Miss Margaret Killian, Dr. Frances Holliday, Dr. Nell Ward, and Mrs. Gearhart. 42 OMICRON DELTA KAPPA Senior Men ' s Honorary Fralernity In May, Omicron Delta Kappa collabo- rated with Waokiya, senior women ' s honorary leadership society, in sponsor- ing the annual All-School Sing. New members were tapped into the group at that time. Robert Kundel, spring toppee, was unable to participate in 1952-53 be- cause he had left school. ODK, national senior men ' s leader- ship-honorary society, was established on the Omaha U campus on May 20, 1950. The purpose of the organization is to recognize men who have attained a high standard of proficiency in collegiate activities and to encourage others to strive for conspicuous attainments along similar Hftes, to create solidarity between student and faculty members, and to bring together representative members in all phases of college life. Men who are tapped into ODK must qualify for membership by contributing outstanding work in one of five major fields: scholarship; social and religious organizotions; athletics; publications; or speech, music, and the dramatic arts. The Omaha chapter acted as host to the General Council of ODK in December, 1952. Fall tapping ceremonies brought in Dale Womer, Robert Rubenstein, William Duffack, and faculty members Paul Beck and Don Pflasterer. Officers for the year were Douglas Al- ford, president; Don Hansen, vice-presi- dent; and Harry Rice, secretary-treasurer. John Lucas was faculty sponsor. Left to right: Back row; John Lucos.

Large crowds stopped the traffic in the main floor as campaigners, all outside the poll limits, hoped to sway their listeners with bribes of apples, gum and candy. We had to fight our way through those mobs of people to get to lunch. In spite of the vigorous campaigning, only 49 per cent of the eligible students voted in the election. Out of 1,477 en- rolled, 719 voted. The junior class led the school in spirit with 57 per cent of their class voting. Sophomores turned out 52 per cent of their members at the polls, and seniors ran a close third with 51 per cent responding. Freshmen trailed with a percentage of 43.

First social activity for the frosh was the Freshman Mixer, held in the audi- torium on September 26. More than 250 students danced to the music of Gary Penisten ' s combo. Emily Runge and Joe Hanna were selected as Typical Fresh- man Girl and Boy by their classmates. The all-school fall election on October 1 1 revealed Dick Matthews as president; Don Schroder, vice-president and Roe Johnson, secretary-treasurer of the fresh- man class. Representing the class on the Student Council were Mary Cosford, Mary Jane Jeter, Kyle Petit and Gary Luse. On December 3 the second annual Freshman Talent Show was presented. The well-balanced variety of acts was ably emceed by Lew Radcliffe. As Freshmen participate in many other campus activities, they can be expected to contribute greatly to the school in the future.

Alpha Phi Omega, men ' s service frater- nity, sponsored the contest which gave the students one vote for each cent contributed to the Campus Chest fund. A kick-off rally on October 27 started the contest with the introduction of the candidates. All week long, APO members solicited funds from their booth in the lower hall. A pancake breakfast at Vice-President Charles Hoff ' s boosted the fund total to $945, fifty dollars over last year ' s mark. Presentation of the winners at a rally in the Snack Shack climaxed the drive. Jack Frost and Charles Piatt were co-chairmen for the event. KW Left: The studio through the eyes of the engineer.

KWOU is Omaha U ' s campus radio station, which broadcasts on a direct wire to the Student Center juke box and loudspeakers. The station is modeled after a com- mercial station, with directors, an- nouncers, and engineers, its direct aim is to provide good music and en- tertainment for the students at OU. The station provides on-the-job training for students of radio and advertising. Bruce Linton is the faculty adviser for the station. The student staff is headed by the program director. Harold Winslow held this position during the first semester, and was succeeded by Dick Palmquist. Palmquist served as pro- duction manager during the first se- mester. He was replaced by Bob Erickson. Lyie Nicklen served as chief en- gineer during both semesters, while Lew Radcliffe and Phil Abramson served both semesters as promotional managers. Irv Jones was music director for the second semester, after moving up from assistant director. Lew Rad- cliffe was music director first semes- ter. Continuity director during the first semester was Carolyn Chapman. She was replaced by Bob Dvorak for the spring semester. A staff of 15 announcers, five en- gineers, two music librarians, and eight continuity writers complete the list. 87 ou Right: The control room through the eyes of the announcer.

An expansion of facilities and equipment in the near future will in- crease the ability of KWOU to serve the campus. The year 1 952 saw a regular sched- ule of broadcasting, and the addi- tion of another studio. More equip- ment will expand the scope of the station, and provide better reception in all respects. This expansion, along with the en- largement of the radio department, will give students an even better chance for experience in radio and television. 88 Zimmerman and Blumer rehearse " Goodbye My Fancy " given on No- vember 7 and 8, featured the commence- ment week-end at Good Hope College.

University Players According to the University Players constitution, " the aim of the organiza- tion shall be, first and foremost, to assist in all dramatic productions of the Uni- versity of Omaha. " Secondly, to create a strong interest in drama and stagecraft. " With this article as a guide, the Players brought new and better productions to the cam- pus. The annual fall and spring shows were aided by production committees from the Players. Monthly business meet- ings were highlighted by lectures on the many phases of theatre arts. The Players are responsible for the backstage work on each production— from painting backdrops to selling tickets. Students earn Players ' membership points by working on these committees, as well as actually appearing on stage in acting parts. Members of the Players also give readings as entertainment at meetings of civic and social groups in Omaha. The readings may be parts of Univer- sity plays or speeches prepared for class work. Officers were Richard Smith, presi- dent; Leonore Marx, vice-president; Anita Reznichek, secretary; Phil Abram- son, treasurer and Jim Erixon, historian. Faculty sponsors are Dr. Edwin L. Clark and Bruce Linton. 91 (Lcrtif irate artiripatimi Know you— Chiefs, Brsvos and Squaws of all tribei — ihat who, being fleet of foot, stout of heart, brave of spirit, and great of esteem, did. on November 7th or 8th, 1952. uphol j and enhance the prestige, the glory, and the honored word of his tribe.

The entire project was set into motion by Omaha Mayor Glenn Cunningham, who is an OU alumnus. Cunningham sent a written invitation to Mayor Fred Kerst of Crete for OU ' s Homecoming foot- ball game with Doane College. The invitation included the statement: " Just say the word and we ' ll run it down to you. " Mayor Kerst accepted, if OU " runners " would bring the ticket to him in person. The University accepted the challenge. An alumni committee planned the route, and students, faculty and alumni signed up to run the 102 one-mile laps. Mayor Cunningham " ran " the first lap, handed the wampum bag to the first student runner, and the two-day trip was under way at about 9:30 a.m. on Nov. 6. The run ended late in the afternoon on Nov. 7, 16 hours, 6 min- utes later— actual running time. The runners followed a route over paved, graveled, and dirt roads through Millard, Louisville, Weeping Water, Otoe, Syracuse and Roca into Crete. The run- ners averaged 9.47 minutes per mile. The biggest barrier in the trip was the Platte River, which had to be crossed just north of Louisville. Ken Borcher and Chuck French crossed the river in a canoe, after three scrapes with sand- bars. OU Alumni Association acting presi- dent Charles Ammons carried the birch- bark the last " mile " and handed it to Mayor Kerst. Kerst was unable to at- tend the game, so he sent the ticket back with College Vice-president G. W. Lindberg. mimiii.ii J » » v ■» Hi K A ' • -r 4 ' I " A 92 Booth preparation The 1952 Homecoming festivities started officially on November 14, and, at 9:00 p.m. the same day, the annual Homecoming Dance was held at Peony Park to the music of Ralph Marterie and his orchestra.

McCord gives Roth pre-game ankle wrap serve as student managers for all of the major sports on the campus excluding basketball which this year was handled by " Bugs " Redden, baseball standout at the University. Dick McCord is another closely related to the equipment crew. His job, however, is centered in the train- ing room where he treats the frequent and varied injuries with an expert skill that only three years of experience and know-how could bring about. The thou- sands of units of equipment that are handled by Wolinski ' s crew present one of the largest headaches on the campus. Wolenski, Marinkayich, " Dusty " and " Skip " Decker This group is composed of the people who maintain and distribute the athletic equipment.

His crew and assist- ants are " Skip " and " Dusty " Decker, who Hopkins, Wolenski 106 Inter-Pep Committee Along with its chores of sponsoring pep rallies during the football and bas- ketball seasons and the selecting of cheerleaders and their alternates the inter-Pep Committee added to the yearly agenda two altogether new activities. One was the annual Migration Day which the committee sponsored for the first time, and the other was a sox dance held in the fieldhouse after the OU, Wes- leyan basketball game. The Committee is composed of repre- sentatives from the Warriors, Feathers, Band and Cheerleading squad. It is set up and regulated by the Student Council with the obvious function of stimulating spirit in the student body. Engelhardt, Olsen, Tatelman, Swahn, Sundsboe, Nevins Warriors The Warriors, Omaha U ' s men ' s pep organiza- tion, has been an active booster of school sports and activities since 1948. Each year the organization presents a trophy to the " basketball player of the year. " Bob Rose was awarded the trophy for the second consecu- tive time. In addition, the Worriors co-sponsored the Homecoming rally and parade in downtown Omaha. The group also co-sponsored a football migration trip to Morningside and a basketball trip to Doane. Officers were Harold Sage, president; Dale Cockerill, vice-president; Ronald Garro, secretary; Bob Rasmussen, treasurer, and Maynard Tatel- man, Inter-Pep Council representative.

Schuchart eyes elusive boll Intra Murals The Intra-Mural football season ended with Sigma Phi Epsilon on the top of the heap. Sig Eps use of the two- platoon system enabled them to field an adequate number of fresh men to establish an unbeaten, unscored upon record. However, the record was not acquired in a " gravy train " manner. The Black- hawks ' and Pi Kaps ' originality in the use of the single wing made things tough for all who entered the compe- tition.

Next on the women ' s sports calendar was the volleyball competition which Chi Omega won after a heated battle for first place with the Unaffiliated squad. The round-robin play had varied ups and downs in the lower echelons of the league while the top teams, Chi Omega and Unaffiliated, held their respective positions of first and second place clear through the final playoffs. Nancy Land copped the singles championship in badminton action by beating Marilyn Rogers and Sally Robinson in finals competition. The doubles crown was won by Joan Thorson and Marilyn Rogers. The two " birdie batters " thrashed through the doubles matches without any serious threats from their competition. Bowling is a continuous sport lasting from September to May. During the fall semester the league play was dominated by the Chi Omega " Owls " with the top average held by Corinne Houser. no Ill Two OU coeds featured in the news this year. Phyllis Wilke, commanding officer of the Angels ' Flight, was selected to christen the new Convair planes for United Air Lines on December 4. After the christening ceremonies, Phyllis was taken on a sight-seeing tour over the city in the new plane. The airline presented a gold watch to Phyllis during a noon luncheon at the Fontenelle Hotel. Maggie Claeson represented the state of Ne- braska at the 57th annual Congress of American Industry in November. The Associated Industries of Nebraska sponsored her trip to New York City.

University Choir An impressive processional of chorus members in red robes, each carrying a lighted candle, began the traditional Christmas convocation on December 12. At intervals during the narration of the Christmas story by Dick Palmquist, hymns and carols were sung by the University choir. Three students, Joanne Pierce, Jean Madden, and Terry Young had solo parts in the program. An or- gan prelude and postlude was played by Martin Bush, music instructor. In addition to the spring concert given at the University on April 29, the chorus made several other public appearances. The group appeared on WOW-TV on March 18, and during the month of April, presented programs at Benson and Westside High Schools. The Orchesis spring program also utilized the serv- ices of the chorus. Other concerts were given at Offut Air Base and Joslyn given at Offut Air Base and Loselyn Memorial. The chorus received new robes for the Eastern Convocation. The women ' s robes are of red velveteen, topped by surplices of eggshell satin. The men ' s costumes are robes of red velveteen. The chorus was under the direction of Richard Brewer, director of vocal mu- sic. A new group, the College of Adult Education Choir, was added this year to the list of musical groups open to OU students. The Madrigal Group and Women ' s and Men ' s Chorus are also di- rected by Professor Brewer. 125 The fall semester of 1952-53 saw the second publication of the " Grain of Sand, " the student literary magazine sponsored by the University ' s English department.

Sixteen sophomore couples presented the waltz entertainment. A skit, given by Roger Dun- bier, Jerry Tannahill, and Gene Ernst, introduced the Christmas theme of the dance. The music was presented by Mai Dunn and his orchestra at Peony Park. Christmas Work The Post Office Department and downtown retail stores drew most of those OU students who worked during the Christ- mas holidays. Hundreds of men from OU un- loaded mail cars at the railway stations, drove mail trucks and delivered the Christmas cards to the homes. Many women and some men worked in retail stores, while many others held other holiday jobs. Some few students enjoyed their three weeks as freedom. m mi 128 ' ' Operation Bootstrap Omaha U established another local " first " last year when officers and air- men from Offutt Air Base were allowed to enroll as full-time students at OU. The Air Force personnel carried full credit loads in working toward gradua- tion or credit certificates. They entered the University as part of their regular Air Force work. Several students graduated from OU after work under " Operation Bootstrap. " One Air Force officer graduated cum laude. Those who did not complete work for their degrees received certificates in recognition of their credits earned. Top: Lieut. Col.

The de- grees were presented at a dinner honor- ing the forty-five graduates. The dinner was held on Tuesday, January 27, in the University auditorium. Guests at the dinner included the hus- bands or wives of the graduating stu- dents-, the University Board of Regents, and the Administrative Council. The candidates for degrees were pre- sented by the deans of the five colleges and the Graduate Division. University President Milo Bail conferred the de- grees. Each graduating student was given tickets so that friends and members of his family might attend the informal graduation ceremonies following the dinner.

A new publication policy was established when the Gate- way was switched from a four page biweekly to an eight page weekly. Better coverage of the news and elimination of repeti- tion was the reason for the change.

The 1952-53 Indians blistered the hoops for 1,554 points in 23 gomes and finished the campaign with a record of 15 wins and eight losses. The most hair raising cage escapade for Omaha fans occurred in the 54-56 loss to crosstown rival Creighton. In that tilt, a last second long shot by Bluejay Eddie Cole dashed Indian hopes for their first Win in history over the Jays. In the repeat perform- ance, Creighton took full advantage of supe- rior height to tumble the host 89-80. Besides establishing an all-time scoring rec- ord as a team, three members of the OU netsters passed the previous individual scor- ing record. Don Claussen accounted for 393 points. Bob Mackie for 350, and Bob Rose for 221 points. r 133 BOB MOSCREY Guard ... 134 points . . . Junior . . . Age 22 ... 6 ' 0 " ... 180 pounds. RALPH PETTIT Guard ... 47 points . . . Junior . . .

Under mentor Darrell Mudra the scrappy Papoose cagers racked up a 1 6-won, -2- loss season ' s record. Creighton ' s " B " squaders fell twice to the Injuns once by a 69-52 thumping, and again on OU ' s own floor by a score of 64 to 55. 1,202 points were scored by the Pa- pooses during the season and probably the biggest helping hand given toward that record was Offutt Air Force Base as they lost to the little Injuns to the tune of 102 to 61.

The versatile cagers made up of top rung athletes from the sports depart- ment escaped without a loss. The cadet cagers from the ROTC department had to accept a second place spot in the final standings after falling to the surge of the little-better Pawnee five.

Lambda Chi began to show championship signs along in March with a .638 won, lost average. Interest was quite lax in table tennis and badminton. Entrants were few and for between in both sports. Most of the competition was supplied by two or three of the more interested fraternities.

' Mural and OUWI Councils New on the campus this year is the Men ' s Intra-mural Council. The Council, headed by Harold Sage, was primarily set up to schedule the various intra-murol sports meets. Problems arising in intrc-murols, and protests were handled by the group, composed of sports representatives from the organizations entered in the program. Any changing of rules and regulations for intra-mural meets also required the attention of the Council. The Women ' s Intramural Council is the gov- erning body of OUWI. Included in the Council are the officers and a representative from each of the six competitive groups entering in intra- murals. At the OUWI banquet each spring, plaques are presented to individual and team champions and are provided by the OUWI Council. The President and Vice-president represented OUWI, which is a member of the Women ' s Ath- letic Association, at the WAA convention at Doane College in April.

Lord Milner, who is a member of the English House of Lords, also spoke to OU ' s Town and Gown club while on campus. 155 Greek Week The annual Greek Week banquet and dance climaxed the Greek Help Week activities of OU ' s fraternity and sorority members. This year ' s Greek Week covered the week between March 16 and 21. The banquet was held March 20, while the dance was held March 21. The main speaker at the banquet was Francis Van Durber, chairman of the national Greek Week observances. Also presentations were made of fall intra- mural awards won by Greek teams, scholarship cups, and the 1952 inter- fraternity cup. The Greek Week dance was held at the Livestock Exchange from 9 p. m. to midnight. Lee Barron and his orchestra provided the music. Duane Post was in charge of the dance, and Sheila Schwid was in charge of the intermission skit. As this yea r ' s Help Week project, the OU Greeks painted, cleaned up, redeco- rated, and repaired an old people ' s ho me. The Help Week was the second annual activity of its kind. The idea was inaugurated in 1952 when the Greeks helped clean up Elmwood Park. A new scholarship trophy was award- ed this year. The trophy, a Sterling silver serving tray, was awarded to the so- rority with the highest average by the Omaha Panhellenic Council. The trophy will circulate, going each year to the winning sorority. Greek Week banquet 156 ANITA REZNICHEK . . .

Its pur- pose is to provide service to the student body and faculty, service to youth and the community, service to the nation, and service to the members of the fraternity. Each year APO carries out many proj- ects designed to fulfill its purposes. High- lights of this service program include the annual blood drives for the Red Cross, the card section for home football games, and the Campus Chest drive. For the first time, a card section v as planned and operated for OU home football games by APO under the leadership of Maynard Tatelman. Also for the first time this year, the Campus Chest drive under the co-chairmanship of Charlie Plott and Jack Frost climaxed its drive by presenting the " Ugliest Man " as well as the girl with the " Cutest Pan " on campus. Fine student support of this program made it possible to set an all- time collection record of $960.

Following a carefully outlined pledg- ing program, theLambda Chi ' s pledged 36 men to the fraternity in the full semester. These pledges are not merely members of the fraternity, however; each one is required to belong to at least one other organization to ex- pand his interests. They can be found in the Men ' s Choir, the War- riors, the Band, Alpha Phi Omega and on the basketball and football teams.

Every evening of the Thanksgiving vacation was occupied in celebration of the 48th anniversary of Phi Epsilon Pi. A few of the events included a stag banquet, for- mal dinner dance, and an overnight at Camp Brewster. December, although well filled with Greek dances and vaca- tion, was not left out. A gigantic tobog- gan and supper party was held prior to the long three week vacation. A sports party, St. Valentine party, and a Ship- wreck party occupied the social slate for January, February and March. The year- ly Phi Ep All-Greek dance concluded the year.

Classes at OU don ' t comply with the usual dawn to dusk routine. Night class- es utilize every classroom in the building Monday through Thursday evenings. The College of Adult Education also sponsors accelerated classes at Offutt Air Base which can be completed in half the nor- mal eighteen week period. The CAE program has been expanded to give night students a well-rounded college experience. Roy W. Nolte was added to the staff this year as a full- SCHOO time counselor for the after-dark stu- dents. Publication of the monthly CAE News and organization of a CAE choir gave opportunities for participation in two extra-curricular fields this year. OU offices were kept open in the eve- nings this year for the benefit of the night students. The Adult Education of- fice. Business Office, Adult Testing Bu- reau, Registrar ' s, and library were open until 8:30 p. m. Everett M. Hosman, Dean of the Col- lege of Adult Education, retired this spring after serving the University for twenty-one years. 215 217 TV Classroom In April, 1952, Omaha U initiated a plan for getting college credits while at home. The plan, called the " Television Classroom, " has been seen on station KMTV five days per week ever since. Miss Ellen Lord, OU librarian, opened this fall ' s program with a six-week series on con- temporary books for adults. The second series was on family financial management and was taught by business instructors Glenn Lewis, William Hockett, and R. Wayne Wilson. Dr. Wilfred Payne, who was the first TV Class- room speaker, returned in January for a six- week series entitled " What Modern Man Thinks. " He was followed by business instructor Paul Crossman, whose subject was " Your Federal Income Tax. Government instructor William Utiey returned in March to discuss " The Washington Scene. " The Classroom gives persons the chance to earn their credits while at home . . . but they must take weekly quizzes and a final examina- tion to qualify for the credits.

The students were enrolling under the new University program for nurses. The girls, 125 strong, were from Im- manuel, Clarkson, and Methodist Hos- pitals in Omaha and Jennie Edmundson Hospital in Council Bluffs. The Iowa girls were under a program which will give them both a degree as a Registered Nurse and a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree in four years. The Omaha girls receive an R.N. de- gree after three years ' work. They may receive the B.Sc. degree after completing two additional years of work. The University and Jennie Edmundson Hospital are two of the first institutions to cooperate on this type of student nurs- ing program.

They invited us to the Lang Syne Dance before we graduated. Alumni finished up the school year of 1951-52 with three annual get-to- gethers: the Lang Syne Dance honoring seniors, April 19; the Achievement Day Banquet, May 31 and the Alumni Fam- ily Picnic, June 21. Ad Schneider, direc- tor of NBC-TV news and special events, received the 1952 Citation for Alumnus Achievement at the banquet. In September, alumni elected Edgar Howe president of the Association. When Howe was transferred to Philadelphia in November, Charles Ammons became president. Other officers are Harold Poff, vice-president; Mrs. Jessie Jones, secretary and Emmett Dunaway, treas- urer. The OU Alumni Association has two major purposes: to develop, renew and maintain friendships among former OU students and to do all things neces- sary to further the general welfare of OU. To carry out these purposes, the As- sociation maintains alumni records, sponsors alumni get-togethers and sends out alumni publications. 226 Septet introduces new alma mater song at Lang Syne dance. John Adams served as executive sec- retary of the Association until his resig- nation October 1. Mrs. Jean Pettit, as- sistant to the executive secretary, was acting executive secretary until Decem- ber 15. On that date Tom Townsend, former assistant to the editor of the NEA Journal in Washington, D. C, returned to the University to become executive secretary of the Alumni Association. Highlight of fall activities for alums was the annual Homecoming celebra- tion. Added to such traditional activi- ties as the Victory Dance was the now- famous " Great Run of 1952. " Under alum sponsorship, alumni, students and faculty members ran a birchbark ticket for the Homecoming game the 102 miles between Omaha ' s City Hall and Crete, Nebraska ' s Mayor Fred Kerst. Eddie Hoff presents Citation to Ad Schneider John Adams, former alumni executive secretary 227 Board mem bers seated left to right ore: Henrietta Kieser, ' 40; Secretary Jessie Jones, ' 20; Thresa Clark, ' 34; Kurt Sick, ' 40; Eileen Wolfe, ' 50; Vice-president Harold Poff, ' 49; Richard Holland, ' 48; Joan Rispler, ' 47; Beverly Bush, ' 49; Don Pflasterer, ' 41; Treasurer Emmett Dunaway, ' 49 and Bob Seitzer, ' 50. During the first semester two issues of Injun, the Alumni Association ' s of- ficial magazine were mailed out. Injun was replaced in the spring by a monthly Al umni Newsletter sent out in March, April, May and June. The Alum Office launched plans to revive Injun as a quar- terly magazine in the future. In January 1953 the Association ' s Board of Directors abolished member- ship dues. That action means that all former OU students are now members of the Alumni Association. All former students now have an opportunity to participate in Association activities. The Board of Directors also author- ized an annual Fund Drive in January. Contributions to the drive are used to expand Association services and to aid the " U. " Don Koukol, a ' 49 grad and now an Omaha attorney, served as chairman of the 1953 Fund Drive. More than 50 alums participated as workers in the personal-contact phase of the drive. By mid-February, contributions and pledges had arrived from 1 1 states, including New York, Pennsylvania, California and Texas. Final alumni events for the 1952-53 year were the Lang Syne Dance, April 17 in the Rome Hotel Ballroom, and the Achievement Day Banquet, May 29 in the University auditorium. 229 And so Ouampi and Ouahama broke oway from their reveries, sighed and looked at little Tommy Hawk playing on the floor. They were glad that their Junior Prom had given them a chance for their first date and that their senior year at Omaha University had brought them closer together and closer to this — their home. Tommy Hawk will surely want to go to OU. And I know he will enjoy it as much as ive did! 230 STUDENT INDEX A Alberti, Charlotte Longville .... 96, 195 Abboud, Ronnie 186 Abromson, Phillip 67, 153 Adams, Fred J 195 Adanrs, Frederick W 101 Adams, Paula King 195 Adkins, Cecil 195 Adwers, Ronald 185 Adzick,, Nick 149, 195 Albert, Lawrence S 39 Albright, Maxine Thedens 63, 65 Alderman, Cheranne 74 Alderman, Patricia 170 Aleck, Joan H. 63, 187 Alford, Douglas G 43, 195 Allard, Lois 62, 172 Almen, William 176 Amato, Angelo 39, 173 Anderson, Claire Strasser 182 Anderson, Elaine M 171 Anderson, Eugene R 39, 180 Anderson, Gary R 168, 196 Anderson, Gayle E 37, 170 Anderson, Gordon 176, 195 Anderson, Jane 67, 187 Anderson, Janet L 37, 170 Anderson, Jeanette 188 Anderson, John 176 Anderson, Lenita 187 Ankeny, Mary J. 74 Anzalone, Sam L 186 Arentson, Mary E 74 Armbrust, Donna 19, 171 Asche, Loretta 196 Ashley, Glen William 74 B Babbel, Frances 125 Bachler, Bob H 175 Back, Richard E 184 Bahensky, Gerald 101 Bailey, Barbara Ann 170 Baker, Howard 101 Ball, Janene L 74 Baltimore, Annie R 66, 196 Baltzer, Gary L 74 Bantin, Frederick 38, 186 Barber, Larry 173, 196 Barbour, George L 196 Bcrnes, Norma 74 Barnes, Robert M 183 Barnes, William 183 Bornum, Shirley 74 Barritt, Ruth Ann Irvin 187, 196 Barton, Virginia V 74 Bauer, Richard J 39 Bauman, Robert K 25 Beachler, Alyce Mae 13, 196 Beam, Leo S 66 Beard, James 173, 196 Beaver, Donald 74 Beck, Bill D 74 Beck, Edward D 74 Bednar, Jean 154, 172 Beem, Raymond 74 231 Beindorff, William G 132, 18 ' Beldin, Jean 187 Belgrade, Edward 38, 196 Bell, Carole L 120, 187 Bell, Thomas E 101 Belzer, David 177 Bendon, Louis 101 Benecke, Mary E 171 Benecke, Robert W 17, 173 Bennett, Richard 74 Benson, Ronald 184 Beran, William G 74 Berigan, J.
