NEBRASKA 68508 A famous quote, from a famous man. But this quote is especially applicable to the students of the University of Omaha who are seeking through the faculty and facilities of the University eternal truths. Education as we know it is much, much more than attending classes, doing assignments, and discussing perplexing problems with professors. It is also to be found in the informal activities of day- to-day communications with our fellow students — in the new Student Center, the now defunct caf eteria, or in the Student Publications office. Here the ideas flow freely, sometimes a bit on the opinionated side, and sometimes a bit immature — but the exchange is the important thing. The next few pages show some of the activities that indicate that " no Omaha U man is cm island. " With the opening of the Applied Arts-Classroom Building this past Fall, and the Student Center this Spring, the University of Omaha ' s campus took on a completely new aspect this past year. Students and faculty found themselves walking across the campus in all kinds of weather to attend classes and obtain services previously located in the Administration Building. 3 People sitting, sometimes standing, but always talking. On the opposite page we find students in the Student Publications offices, in the Physics laboratory, and the old cafeteria, talking. On this page we find a group of people sitting, and talking, and Floyd Kalber giving journalism student Russ Grove a few news pointers. A familiar sight to students entering the campus from the south is the Administration Building, shown here in full color. Below, a scene in the new Physics lab located in the Applied Arts Building. 6 Until this past year, students found little opportunity to discuss the pros and cons of the campus, city, state and nation in the setting shown below. Now such scenes as this are the rule, rather than the exception. A rare opportunity to enrich one ' s self occurred this post year when Roscoe Pound, dean emeritus of the Harvard Law School, delivered a stirring lecture on the Supreme Court for our American Heritage series. Dean Pound, 90 years of age, addressed the largest crowd yet to occupy the lecture room in the Applied Arts Building. More than 600 persons crowded the session. 8 1 1 Dean Pound produced a remarkable effect on those persons who heard him. The dapper ninogenerian ' s enthusiasm beUed his yectrs, and he also proved that he understood the importance of an autograph to a young fan. Communications is not always oral. Art instructor Jane Andersen designed and painted most of the story-telling sets used in the all-Omaha U musical " Bells Are Ringing. " Music, seen here as Omaha area bands gathered on campus last Fall for the annual Band Day, also provides a form of communication. It has been called the imiversal language, and has added much to our Uves at the University. It was impossible to not feel the spirit of life on this beautiful afternoon in the stadium. 11 12 It may be that the year 1960-61 will be remembered as the year of extremes in weather. From the constant Fall rains to the everyday (or so it seemed) snow falls, and then the inevitable mud, we ran and sat. We also looked out at a campus from windows that didn ' t exist before, and felt good and warm that we were at Omaha U. 13 Bowling provided opportunities for students to get to know each other better. Two of the top college bowlers in the area racked up a fistful of pins to win a trip to Chicago to represent Omaha U. Cloudy skies didn ' t dampen the enthusiasm that greeted Ma-ie day in 1959, but the wind did " pose a challenge to all float builders. The colorful Spring holiday again produced many great floats, one of which is shown here. On these few opening pages of the 1960 TOMAHAWK, we ' ve tried to show a few of the scenes that most of us will cherish once we have completed our work at the University of Omaha. Yes, we will remember certain classes, and certain professors — but we will remember best those times when we talked with our fellow students. We were creating bridges, from ourselves to others, proving once agcdn that . . .

Philanthropic, industrious community cmd business leaders are these twelve people who comprise the University Board of Regents. They assist President Milo Bail in naming faculty appointments, deciding on new courses of in- struction and in setting budget recommenda- tions. This year the Board formally accepted the new Applied Arts Building and Student Ac- tivities Building but were unsuccessful in their attempts to acquire more parking area from the city. Holding terms of four years, Regents are elected by the Omaha School Board. Of- ficers are Loiois Somberg, president; F. E. Bor- chers, vice-president; Mrs. John Merriam, secre- tary. New to the Board this year is Dr. Harry D. Barber. The Board of Regents 20 The President President Milo Bail and President Emeritus Rowland Haynes discuss the 1959 graduation ceremony. Just as mighty oaks from tiny acorns grow, mighty universities from tiny colleges grow. Under President Milo Bail ' s leadership for the past twelve years, Omaha University has shown significant growth and development in enrollment, in academic offerings, and in the caliber of the faculty which he has appointed. Growth in facilities includes the huge Field- house and stadium, a new music annex, the Gene Eppley Library and Adult Education Con- ference Center, the Applied Arts Classroom Building, and the Student Activities Building. Other marks of progress include the Air Force ROTC unit, the organization of two new col- leges, Education and Business Administration. President Bail supervises administrative policy, makes appointments, interprets rules and, in general, keeps the wheels of the University well-oiled and running smoothly. The president is currently a member of the Executive Com- mittee of the National Commission on Accred- iting, the Board of Trustees of Joslyn Society of Liberal Arts, past president of Rotary and a member of its Board of Directors and this year was honored by being coroneted a 33rd degree Mason.

The Social Clubs and Special Activities committee, headed by Dean Mac- Gregor, strives to keep a balance among social life, athletic programs, publications and academic interest groups on campus. The Athletics com- mittee under Mr. Trickett, serves the President as an advisory committee on athletic and related student activities. It recommends grants-in-aid, reviews athletic schedules and votes on persons recommended for " letters " and awards. Mr. Peterson is the " man in charge " of student pubhcations. Policy decisions, appointment of editors and approval of printing contracts, decided by the Stu- dent Publications Board, are carried out by the director. The Student Center Program was initiated second semester after the building opened. Dean Pflas- terer directs the program which con- trols recreation and bookstore opera- tions in the Center.

Inside, the students go about their activities in well-equipped, well-lighted laboratories, workshops, drawing rooms, a spacious lecture hall and the " finest dark room layout and news room in the Midwest. " The practical side of the Applied Arts curriculum is being stressed in these modern accom- modations. The servicemen who attended classes under the " Operation Bootstrap " program, future homemakers who learn by doing in the up-to-date kitchens, pre-engineering students who work in the shops, nurses who are studying medical skills, and those who work in the practical labs in newspaper and " home-ec " journalism, photography and radio- TV news all graduate with a Bachelor of Science de- gree. They may qualify to teach or enter business or industry. Dean Carl W. Helmstadter is in his 31st year of supervising the College. 1959-60 was a year of great advance- ment for the engineering department. The extensive new facilities afforded the department, such as the large ma- chine-tool laboratory, in the Applied Arts building have been enjoyed for one full year. These facilities promote the goal of training men in the practice of professional engineering whereby they will be able to develop the mental attitude of thinking each problem through to the correct answer using scientific procedures. Thus, they may deal with facts to establish new facts and truths which will aid mankind in progress toward a better life. The en- gineering faculty continues to expand with six full-time instructors and a part- time instructor. This faculty increase implies that engineering enrollment has increased. A full four-year program in industrial engineering was worked out this year for approval by the adminis- tration. This program would help en- gineering students to accomplish their engineering training on the OU campus. Sylvester V. Williams, head oi department; Harold L. Davis, instiuctor; Fred- erick C.

Department of Engineering Department of Home Economics " A stitch in time " . . . Miss Carolyn Kundel, instructor. Because home economics offers such an ex- tent of opportunities in each field, OU graduates occupy widely varied positions. In Omaha, OU graduates are working in utilities, appliances, food production, home services, extension and dietetics. This purely elective department at- tracts more non-majors than any other depart- ment on campus. The present four-year course has been offered since 1948. Miss Carolyn Kundel, textiles instructor, is new to the depart- ment this year. Guest speakers on job opportimities, such as in hair styling or fashions, an annual Con- tinental smorgasbord and several teas filled a busy year for the Home Economics Club. Dar- lene Wissing, president; Judy Suing, vice-presi- dent; Toni Longmeyer, secretary; Deanne Heldt, treasurer; and Katherine McLennan, historian, supervise the club of 30 members.

T hree hospitals in the area — Imman- ual, Nebraska Methodist and Jenny Edmunson Memorial — have the basic science taught to their freshmen at the Uni- versity. A service program for freshmen, a B.S. degree for reg- istered nurses, a pre-nursing course for those interested but not affiliated with a school of nursing program and a M.A. or M.S. degree in education with a major in nursing are the four varied courses offered by the OU program. Miss Dorothy M. Patach, R.N., took over as Di- rector of Nursing and instructor of nursing education in the fall. DOROTHY PATACH, (center) director ot nursing, chats at the nurses ' tea.

" The festivities still include dreaded deadlines, blood- baths, bloated banquets and Pulitzer ' s dead voice echoing: " Accuracy, accmacy, accuracy. " But new quarters lightened the wrath of the journalism students. High on the list of esteemed possessions is the nearly $400 copy or slot desk cigarette match and blow-torch proof. (Petey does not condone experimenting thereof.) The department was honored by the Omaha Elks Club with a journalism banquet and a $40 check to Gateway Editor Lowell Baumer for his prize-winning editorial. Two-time winner Ken Fielding was also rewarded for outstanding work in journalism. Field- ing received the third annual Associated Nebraska Industrial Editor Award and a $100 scholarship for contributing the most to OU ' s publications.

Gateway editor-in-chief broke through the picket lines with a profit- making organization label. It was a long three weeks without an information filled Gateway; but the result was the beginning of a new era, an era which provides mone- tary compensation for the editor. Fall saw Lowell Baumer as editor-in-chief. Come spring and Uncle Lowell was still warming the copy desk. Pomp and formality set in the lap of the new, rigid surroundings. Gone forever are the goodies stored in the old supply room. And the blasts from the radio and Al ' s progressive jazz. But with a new environment, new activities were born — like the eraser-hockey games, and flash bulb basketball. First Semester Editors First Semester Staff 30 Gateway SPRING Lowell Baumer . .

In spite of the grand shortage of working photog- raphers, the Tomahawk saw a new decade. Amid the tearful tales of " he didn ' t show, " " that d - - n snow " and " Sue, you can ' t crop a picture at 4.1 inches, " beautiful moments of deadline chocolate malts and Gordi ' s good himior brightened the gloom.

College of Arts and Sciences To broaden man ' s outlook by the pursuit of learning in the cultural areas of life is the goal of the College of Arts and Sciences. The oldest of the colleges at the University is a gold mine for opening students ' minds to the nuggets of knowledge found in the wisdom of ancient man and the pursuit of learning by modem man. The Aits and Sciences encompasses the fields from art through zoology and endeavors to stimulate a true imderstanding of the physical, social, mental and spiritual forces which shape a man ' s character. Realizing that edu- cation is only achieved by the individual learner, this College encourages cm individualized program whereby each student may learn something in many of the divisions. Dean William H. Thompson, who has served the University for 29 years, will retire in August, 1960. 38 Departmenti Forty-five Brush and Pcdette Club enthusiasts, under the sponsorship of Mr. Blackwell and Miss Andersen, painted their way through a glass sale, student exhibits, a spring art auction, a trip to Chicago, a mem- bership picnic, a Hawaiian luou and a halloween party.

The department ' s facilities were greatly increased with the addition of classroom space for advanced art students at the new downtown cen- ter plus a ceramics-sculpture work- shop and design, graphics, painting and drawing workshops added to the existing campus facilities. Mr. Roger Twedt was added to the fac- ulty to teach courses in ceramics, sculpture and art history. Department of Chemistry Peter Hill, instructor of ait; Roger Twedt, instructor oi art; Jane Andersen, instructor of art; John Blackwell, assistant professor and head of tfie de- partment of art. The chemistry department trains chemistry majors for graduate work and industry and of- fers courses in the pre-professional curriculum, such as medicine, nursing, engineering and edu- cation. Chemistry majors belong to the local chapter of the Student Affiliates of the American Chemical Society, a professional organization. Well-known chemists visit the campus yearly when the Omaha section of the Society holds its meetings at OU. Last year for the first time at any school, the Student Affiliate group spon- sored a " telelecture " by the Nobel Prize Winner in chemistry. The addition of a new piece of equipment for research, a D. U. Spectrophoto- meter, was made possible by a joint $4,000 grant from the Research Corporation of NY City and the University.

Department of Economics Vocational opportunities in economics ex- ist primarily in government service and in col- lege teaching. The economics department ' s function is to provide basic training in the fundamentals of economics. In view of its service nature, the department is one of the larger ones on campus in terms of number of registered students. A break in the rigorous theoretical training and a bridge to more prac- tical consideration is provided by various speakers addressing economics classes on top- ics in their fields of competence. Among these were the Consul General of Canada, the vice president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kans- as City, the Douglas County Welfare Director, the Director of Internal Revenue and various bankers.

The literary magazine cir- culates widely not only on campus but to high schools in Nebraska and Iowa and to libraries and college campuses all over the nation. This year, the eighth year of pubhcation, the faculty sponsors were Mr. Carl Jonas and Mr. Ralph Wardle. Student editorial board members were Warren Francke, Michael Anania, Leanna Haar, Richard Losch and Susan Worman. 44 Department of Language The United States is at present experiencing a renaissance in the study of foreign languages, both in aims and methods. A foreign language today, in order to justify its place in the curricu- lum, has to become a vital and ready instru- ment of communication for the fostering of international understanding in business and poli- tics, in military and foreign service, in scientific research and traveling abroad. To further this goal and better accomplish its modern mission, conversational practice in class and language laboratory, spoken language contests for high school students and conferences for foreign language teachers are some of the activities and technigues used by the foreign language and literature department.

The objective of this department is to prepare graduates for the teach- ing of geography or for government work. New facilities, a new faculty member and a new club were embraced by the geography department this year. Classes were held in the new Applied Arts building. Mr. Roger Dunbier, a graduate of OU and of Oxford University, assumed the position of geography instructor. A Geography Club was organized this year for those interested in exploring the various facets of geography in depth and detail. Gordon Schilz, professor and head of the department of geography.

Departments of General Science...Biology and Physics Comprehension of life and living things and the appreciation of man ' s natural environment are the far-reaching goals of the general science department. OU graduates receiving degrees in one of the general sciences may get jobs in many fields with salaries ranging from $4,500 up to $30,000. General science students receive practical training in the old laboratories and the new one in the Applied Arts building. Mr. Carl Keeler, ecology and botany, and Mr. Merle Brooks, botany and science education, are new to the faculty this year. The Biology Club, spon- sored by Mr. Keeler, is open to anyone interested in expanding his knowledge of life and living things. PHYSICS: Charles L.

Departments of History and Social Science History, like a great bridge across a stream, arches time and seeks to link the present with the past. The history department hopes to en- courage students to form their own judgments on historical events and movements. History gives perspective. In a sense the student of history is assembUng a gigantic jigsaw puzzle of the past, but only because the living present is an extension of the past in which most of today ' s problems originated. This department, which offers about 30 courses each semester with approximately 1,000 enrolled, is one of the larger graduate areas at OU. It has two " in- terns " this year: Max Bair and Carolyn Ruge. Casper Offutt was added to the faculty last spring. The social science department is under the history department. Thomas N. Bonner and interns, Fred Splittgerber and Richard Condon seem happy with the ir profession.

The Band The " Marching Spirit of Omaha U, " under the able direction of Jack Malik, became a common word and a common sight on campus this year. The 35 members of the marching band, the Indiannes and the cheerleaders (both sporting new uniforms) performed at football and basketball games to cheer the teams on to victory, enthusiastically led pep rallies and pa- rades on Band Day, Homecoming and Ma-ie Day. They even went off on buses for a vic- torious Migration Day to Emporia, Kansas, in the Fall. The concert band lent its musical abil- ity to Christmas and Easter convocations, musi- cal stage productions and to commencement ceremonies. Christmas carol contest winner David Carlsen was voted " Bandsman of the Year " and awarded the trophy. Dave Carlsen, Bandsman of the Year 50 The Choir Dave Carlsen gets ready to solo as Mr. Miller directs OVs concert choir at Christmas Convo, The Orchestra With vocal chords straining and all eyes focused upon Director John D. Miller, the University Choir was kept busy singing in seasonal community services besides special con- vocations on campus. Christmas activities were peaked by performances at the University convocation, Rotary Club, Cen- tral Grade School, Chamber of Commerce and the Women ' s Club and a recording for WOW all on one day! A stirring performance of the " Messiah " in the winter and a presentation of the Brahms " Requiem " in the spring were cUmaxed at the year ' s end with the spring concert in Joslyn Concert Hall. The Male Chorus " O-Beaus " entertained at the Fall Open House, various coffee hours and community and church occasions. Classical and semi-classical pieces and show tunes provide a variety of music from which the OU orchestra can choose and master — and it does. James B. Peterson directs the orchestra in its pres- entations for OU and the community. A musical contribution to the CAE Christmas program high- lighted the winter season. The year ended with the annual spring concert and the musical, " Bells Are Ringing. " Nancy Yates, orchestra president, re- ceived a scholarship from the Omaha Symphony Orchestra.

Department of Philosophy A large collection of significant ideas ad- vanced by distinguished men, historical and contemporary, is presented to students for their acquaintance by the philosophy department. Each student thus equipped with ideas is able to make decisions on his individual philosophy of life. This small department with limited reg- istration offers only three courses at any one time, but classes are always filled to the limit. " Legacy of Man, " a number of non-credit lec- ture series and a considerable number of single lectures of the same character are offered yearly. Department of Political Science Protessoi WiUiam Utley, head of the department of pohtical science, piies the work on his associate professor, W. C. B. Lambert. Few forces have such an all-encompass- ing and intense impact upon our lives as does government, the working arena of the depart- ment of political science. The department ' s prime goal is to stimulate an awareness of the importance of government in our lives, a com- prehension of the fundamentals of our own and other governmental systems, and a determina- tion to play the role of " citizen " more effective- ly. Local, state, national and international affairs come within the scope of the depart- ment. Students are encouraged to participate in " politics, " and opportunities for this are arranged. Department of Psychology In teaching psychology to students, the psychology department helps them to achieve a broader understanding of their fellow human beings. " Why do people behave as they do? " is the question confronting psychology stu- dents. Both theoretical and practical applica- tions are discussed in classes. Two new assist- ant instructors, James Fargher and Fred Seybold, and increased space in the Applied Arts building for an expanding department, were added last fall to the largest department in the College of Liberal Arts. President of the OU Psychology Association, for psychology majors with above-average grade points, is Geraldine Nesvan. William H. Thompson, Dean of the College of Arts and Sci- ences and professor of psychology; Frances Edwards, Di- rector of Child Study clinic; Francis Hurst, assistant pro- fessor of psychology; William Jaynes, assistant professor and Director of Industrial testing; James Torgher, assistant instructor in psychology. Department of Sociology The department of sociology seeks to en- lighten students in respect to human relation- ships. The group aspect of man ' s living in family, school, church, community, ethnic groups and the industrial order is the focal point of concern and study. Various research projects are conducted in Omaha in connec- tion with the Juvenile Court and welfare agen- cies. This department of about 700 students is conducted by three full-time faculty members, two part-time members and two assisting graduate interns. Phillip H. Vogt, former coun- ty welfare director, became an associate pro- fessor of sociology at the University second semester. An overall 3-point average and twelve hours of sociology qualify students to be members of Alpha Kappa Delta, sociology honorary. Spon- sored by Mr. McCurtain, the group annually holds a membership tea, a Christmas party, picnics and an initiation ceremony as well as listening to entertaining speakers.

Department of Speech Dramatics, debate and Radio-TV are only a few of the many areas under the command of the speech department. In these areas, as well as general speech, the department strives to train students to easily, fluently and correctly employ their native tongue. Yearly depart- mental activities include the annual " Kick-Off " discussion and debate tournament, three major productions of the University Theater, the cam- pus radio station (KWOU), and TV-Classroom. Pi Kappa Delta " Debaters Extraordinary " might be applied to members of Pi Kappa Delta, national honor- ary forensic fraternity. Pi Kappa Delta ' s took first place this year in the men ' s divisions of Classes A and B at the National Intercollegiate Forensics Association tourney; Herb Egener won first in the state in men ' s oratory and ninth in national competition. The honorary sponsors " Speakeasies, " a junior toastmasters group and aids in running the fall " Kick-Off " debate tournament. 54 The question put to the 1959-60 debaters was " Resolved that Congress should be given the power to reverse decisions of the Supreme Court. " The highlight of the year occurred last spring at the State Tournament at Kearney when OU ' s team took six " firsts. " Other tourna- ments in which the OU squad debated were the OU " Kickoff " in the fall, the University of Pitts- burgh " Cross-Question " debate and those of Wayne, Northwestern and Nebraska Universities. Left: " It is my conclusion that parking must be aholishf,d at O.U.I " Below: " Resolved that the students should he given the power to reverse decisions of the faculty.

Teacher Vance McConnell College of Muslness MfMinistratloM The newest college on campus — the College of Business Administration created in 1952 — provides young men and women with a variety of study areas leading to responsible positions in business. Students take courses in business and liberal arts until the junior year when they choose a field of specialization. Four-year programs leading to a Bachelor of Science degree are available in the areas of accounting, insurance, finance, marketing, real estate, secretarial, industrial management, retailing, and general business management. Experience gained from working in Omaha businesses is co- ordinated with classroom instruction in on-the-job training. Teaching certificates may be earned by students who want to teach business and commercial subjects in high schools. Dean John W.

" The student of accounting is continuously- challenged to think and exercise judgment. Upon gradua- tion, opportunities are numerous in the fields of public, private or governmental accounting. The large number of students interested in the accounting profession has brought an increase in the department with 15 night and nine day classes being held this year. Newest activity of the de- partment is the internship program. To gain practical ex- perience seniors majoring in accounting leave the campus for a seven-to-eight week period to work in a public ac- coimting office in Omaha. The program also provides stu- dents with the opportunity to determine if public account- ing is the field they desire to enter. Department of Business Administration Counseling students in a variety of study areas, in- structing in day and night classes and founding and spon- soring department-related organizations are some of the many responsibilities of the faculty of the College of Busi- ness Administration. Faculty members are instrumental in helping students secure supervised work experience to provide practical training to co-ordinate with academic instruction. Newest departmental organization is the re- activated marketing club sponsored by Mr. Bull. George Harris, professor of business administration; Charles Bull, as- sistant professor ot business administration; Jack Hill, assistant professor of business administration. James Chastain, assistant professor of business administration and di- rector of insurance program; John Leonard, assistant professor of business administration; Joyce Minteer, assistant professor of business adminis- tration; Glenn Lewis, assistant professor ot business administration. 64 Department of Retailing Cooperation is the keyword in the Department of RetaiUng. The career training program of the department is based on a cooperative arrangement with the Associated Retailers of Omaha who furnish financial support for its operation. In the junior and senior year classroom instruction is coordi- nated with work experience in the store-service laboratory. Twelve $250 scholarships are provided for departmental students each year by the As- sociated Retailers. Retailing Club Acquainting retailing students with aspects of their future profession is the main objective of the Retailing Club sponsored by Mr. Davison. Bi-month- ly meetings featured speakers, round table discus- sions and tours. In the fall the group held a tea for University faculty and a membership party. Cli- maxing the year ' s activities was a coffee hour for members of the Associated Retailers of Omaha. Presiding over the group were Sandra Fellman, president; Dick Moore, vice-president; Charon Allen, secretary and Mike Prey, treasurer.

Local business leaders spoke on facets of their professions at group meetings. Tours of plants in the Omaha area was another group activity. Department of Secretarial Science A good secretcnry is always in demand. Knowing this, the Department of Secretarial Sci- ence offers secretarial and office training pro- grams to meet the needs of students who wish to prepare for positions in business and pro- fessional offices. By combining skill courses in typing, shorthand, office machines, secretarial practices and record management with business and cultural subjects in either the two-year or four-year program, graduates are prepared for desirable positions in business and government. Departmental students who prefer teaching to secretarial duties may follow a program leading to secondary school certification. Phi Chi Theta Phi Chi Theta started the year with a new name and a new affihation. On May 31, 1959, the Business Administration group became affiliated with the na- tional business woman ' s fraternity and changed its name from Phi Theta Chi. Fall activities of the OU chapter included pledging of new members and a tea for the Business Administration faculty. In the Spring the group hosts the Secretarial Seminar, a refresher course for secretaries from Omaha offices.

Other special activities such as the fall meet with Nebraska University ' s Alpha Delta Chapter and the Christmas collection for a needy family ' s Christmas dinner augmented the usual bi-weekly chapter meetings. A luncheon marked the mid-term grad- uation of Wally Hale, chancellor; Les Edwards, senior vice- president; and George Gentis, efficiency chairman. The conseguent election named Jerry Karlin and John Wayne to fill the vacated offices. Delta Sig ' s can boast members excelling in many fields. The bowling team included Ron Peterson, Keith Holman, Ray Buttrel and Jim Zulfer ranked top in their league. Brothers Larry Larson and Phil Ulerich were named to accoimting internships.

A department of the University since 1911, the College became a separate unit in 1950 after increased population, rising teacher ' s salaries and better teaching condi- tions brought a continual increased enrollment. Preparation for a teaching career includes general and professional education, specialization and ex- perience. Students, offered a program of education classes combined with courses in humanities, natural sciences, and social sciences plus practical experi- ence through student teaching, emerge as broadly educated persons who have become competent guides of children and adolescents. Dean Frank H. Gorman has served as head of the College since its founding. 75 Above left: George Rachford, associate professor of education, Harry Johnson, assistant professor of secondary education and director of read- ing improvement laboratory; Gale Oleson, counselor in the college of education and director of student counseling.

The University ' s athletic pro- gram, including the freshman P.E. courses, the intramurals, the coed activities, the individual competitions and the intercollegiate teams in football, basketball, baseball and track, is based on the simple truth that there is a place and a pleasure for everyone in the world of sports.

COL. SHIRL H. SWENSON Professor of Air Science " Off they go " — the Reserve Officer ' s Trccining Corps detachment — to select and train capable Air Force officers. Because the AF-ROTC program at the University since 1951 is not compulsory, its progress and achievements have made it a unique operation. Directing the cadet academic work in the Department of Instruction is Lt. Col. Shirl H. Swen- son, new to the University this year. Other Air Force officers new to commanding the OU cadet ranks this year are Capt. Albert H. Swanson, Sgt. Darrell S. Goodwyn, Sgt. Richard L. Grimm and Sgt. Billie G. Brown. The Corps sponsors the AF-ROTC Military Ball in the spring, the President ' s Review in the spring, and the annual cadet " activities night " in ad- dition to supervising the Sabers, Arnold Air Society, the rifle team, Angels Flight and the Drum and Bugle Corps. 96 Fiont Row Captcdn Joseph Davis, assistant professoi. assistant comman- dant of cadets; Captcdn A.

Confusion in the ROTC Department With a Swenson and a Swanson added to the Air Force ROTC de- tachment staff last fall, cadets often didn ' t know who they were saluting. Lt. Col. Shirl Swenson from NATO Headquarters, France, took charge as Professor of Air Science and head of the detachment. Capt. A. H. Swanson from Hickam AFB, Ha- waii, was named new assistant Di- rector of Instruction under Major John B. Truell. Commandant of Cadets is Major Leslie H. Hendrick- son, Jr., with Copt. Joseph M. Davis, assistant. This year a Hason committee between the Secretary of the Air Force and the schools par- ticipating in the AF-ROTC program (OU) was set up. Second semester several regular school classes such as World PoHtical Geography and International Relations, were inte- grated into the AF-ROTC curriculimi. Advantages of this new program are the higher quality of instruction in the regular college courses and the savings to the government. Ready, aim, fire! 97 Angels Winging their way to outstanding leadership were forty Oma- ha University coeds known as Angels. Angels Flight is an honor- ary auxiliary to the Arnold Air Society. Chosen by the AAS members, these girls serve the University by practicing long hours at the crack of dawn to give snappy marching performances, sing- ing with the Angelaires, happily doing AF-ROTC office work in the cadet office, socially holding teas and just plain partying in gen- eral. FUghtleader Sonja Ruckl commanded the Angels this year with the cooperation of Marching Angel commander Cadet Major Eddie Akeyson. Six surprised Angels were flying high when named honorary officers at the spring Military Ball. Firs; Row: Joyce Stolley, Karen Larsen, Barb Griffin, Sonya Ruckl, Marilyn Brunei], Mary Roberts.

Alpha Xi Delta Piesident Helen Hcrwley Vice-Piesident Judy Joerns Secietaiy Joyce Stolley Treasurer Carolyn Richmond Pledge Tiainei Donna Anderson Looking back over the past year, we see many rea- sons why Alpha Xi Delta has come to symbolize so much to us. In the fall we welcomed the largest pledge class on campus into our sisterhood. We started our year with a song when we captured first place in the Sig Ep Sing. We all cheered when Peg Herman was named Theta Chi Sweater Girl and " Gypsy " Johns, Tau Kappa Epsilon Sweet- heart and Pledge of the Month. Fall elections saw Sally Hansen and Sue Ewing chosen as class secretaries for the Frosh and Juniors. Alpha Xi ' s really led the cheering when five sisters were selected as varsity cheerleaders. Donna Anderson, Barb Griffin, Helen Hawley and Joyce Stolley served as Angel ' s Flight officers. We closed the fall term by winning first place in the Theta Chi OX Olympics. In the spring, we danced the night away at our annual Rose Formal at the Athletic Club. We sang our way into first place again at the All-School Sing. Our float, " Indecision, " won second place in the Ma-ie Day parade. Our sisterhood was enriched by slumber parties, our Family Day Football game, Devil Dance and King Satan, a holiday party with the alums and the pledge ' s all-pledge Casual Sweater party. All these activities, and many more, have come to make Alpha Xi Delta a cherished symbol among her sisters. " Someone pricked me with a thorny rose!

October found pledge trainer Mary Jane Chapman in a teepee only to emerge as Homecoming Princess. The Pi Kap ' s selected sister Joyce Casey as their new Dream Girl. Pledges entertained dates and actives with a Chinese ob- stacle eating banquet. Frustrations mounted and appetites soared as each bite became a contest of " eatey easy withee chopee stickee or itee will breakee. " Zeta Delta ' s helped to uphold the traditional beauty queen honors as Karen Kleider became the Tomahawk Beauty Queen. Judy Moe won the Typical Freshman title. The Student Coimcil made room for pledge Delores Brewer, while re-elected members Allen, Flint, Casey, Frank, McGlee and Bentley resumed their former places. Waokiya tapped Jo Bentley, Barb McGlee, Kay Jones, Sandy Pistone, Sonja Ruckl, and Laurie Frank. With pencil behind ear and note book in hand, sister Garvin once again was elected class secretary. The gals revelled with the guys at fraternity parties and dances, while four-point hopefuls polished up the Pan- hellenic trophy.

Through the fall semester pledge trainer Sandy fought to keep her pledges in line while President Joyce herded her chapter through hilarious song sessions, stuff-yourself-instead-of- slumber parties, exchange parties with hobos, cowboys and beachcombers rimning around, curler-bedecked pledges who came-as-they-were to breakfast, ice-skating parties, the miraculous " pyramid that stood " at the OX Olympics, go-to-church Sundays and get stuck in the snow on the way, and dragging feet from a Sigma Kappa volunteer UCS fun-raising drive. The December Violet Formal had a snowflake theme. There Bob Nelson, Theta Chi, was voted SK Typical Fraternity Man. There also the pledges pulled a boner as they do each year with a rather embarrassing (to the actives) " Arthur Murray Party " intermission enter- tainment. Carol Sue Child was elected to Angels Flight pledge Julie Hron was named a Lambda Chi Alpha pledge class sweetheart. A successful first annual " Sigma Kapers ' pledge party voted John Pycha, Lambda Chi, " Mr. Pledge.

Honors and offices came early, as the spirit and brotherhood made itself feh. Three were tapped for ODK, and two other men took over teaching positions on the faculty. The Inter-pep council. Red Cross and APO in- stalled Lambda Chi ' s as presidents, and the student body elected three others to the Student Council. Singing our way to victory in the Spring Sing, dining and dancing at the traditional white Rose Formal, where Jan Anderson became our new Crescent Girl, and at the Mardi Gras, were but a few of the many visible sides of Lambda Chi Alpha. Under the leadership of John McKulsky, each member became more aware of the truth — - " It is not the trophies setting on the shelf tarnishing or the victories that are for- gotten that make Lambda Chi such a profitable suppliment to our college education, but as each learns, it is the wis- dom and understanding gained through the teachings and ideals given in Lambda Chi Alpha that last and profit us throughout our lives.

At the close of the Greek Week project, which was headed by Brother Dilley, viewers watched the Pike ' s reel in all but four of the eleven available annual awards trophies. During the Ma-ie Day festivities, the brothers successfully " Intrigued " the judges by capturing the first place float trophy. Brothers Casey and Traudt en- gineered the project. Spring also fovmd brothers Perkins and Dichsen elected to the positions of prexy and veep of the Student Council; brothers Dick Jorgensen, Keill, and Sallquist were tapped as ODK ' s. Summer saw the bonds of brotherhood still strong, even at the costly and " spirited " Senior party at brother Nick ' s basement. Fall found functions, the Garnet and Gold Formal being the most noteworthy, where Joyce Casey was named as dreamy Dream Girl. Yes, with Sallquist ' s firm hand on the gavel (when it wasn ' t stolen), Perkin ' s keen eye on vice, Nick ' s sharp pencil on the minutes, B.

Spring elec- tions also proved profitable as Phil Gradoville and Ed Skarnulis were elected to the Student Council. And then there were the Sig Ep parties. The Sweetheart dance saw Peggy Johnson become the Sweetheart of Sigma Phi Epsi- lon. On Ma-ie Day the " pillars of Greece " held together very well despite Vince Kotlar ' s efforts to stop the tractor. And then there were more parties. September brought the Sig Ep Sing and twenty-two pledges, who quickly congre- gated in the old Shack to " borrow " the Theta Chi shell. Fall elections brought into class officers Dennis Graves, Freshman president; Tony Sortion, Freshman vice-president; Terry Olsen, Sophomore Class president; and Bill Moulton, Junior vice-president.

Al took national honors in bowling and led the intra- mural team to first place at mid-season. As usual, the actives beat the pledges in football and were honored afterwards by a party. Other sporting events kept the Teke ' s busy during the entire year. At the annual Red Carnation dinner-dance Linda Johns was presented as fraternity sweetheart. Teke ' s gathered toys to donate to an orphanage at an annual Christmas party where brother Jefferies was cast as Santa Claus. Finals came, and went, and took their toU.

The 1959 Indian grid team finished the season with a 1-7 record, one victory more than last year ' s squad could attain. Inexperienced players plagued the OU eleven most of the season. The season ' s lone win came in their first CIC con- ference game against Emporia 20-13. The victory ended a two-year losing streak. The team played well in all their other contests except against the Idaho State Bengals who completely outclassed the Indians. The Indians were captained by seniors Tony Bu- tera and Dick Hegarty. Louis Miloni was selected as the outstanding first-year player. Leading players on the fifth place Indian squad were: Rushing — Hegarty — 385 yds. Passing — Dave Gibson — 402 yds. The Indian season was highlighted by the playing of two games at the Municipal Stadium. Better at- tendance resulted. Head Coach Lloyd Cardwell resigned shortly after the season ' s finale. Assistant coach Al Caniglia was promoted and will boss the squad next season. 192 mssk First row: Kiort Osterholm, Ray Killion, James Herren, Willie McCants, Charles Whitner, Louis Miloni, John Ritner, Dick Cunningham, Bob An- derson, Max Jones, Don Tomasek, student manager; Gary Piel, student manager.

The squad started the season with a bang, winning three out of their first four games. Then a mid-season slump hit and the roundballers lost fifteen games straight. The season ended on a bright note as the Indian five defeated Morningside. The Indians opened the season with a freshman dominated team, four of the five being first year men. Grades hurt the Indians after the first semester with the team ' s leading scorer and leading rebounder being lost. Jim Markey and Jerry Evans were lost scholas- tically. Seniors Phil Gradoville and Dick Hegarty came into their own the second semester with Grado- ville ' s ending up as the team ' s leading scorer. Two freshmen were the steadiest men on the team. Bruce Hunter ' s rebounding and scoring and Neu- berger ' s floor alertness aided the team throughout the season. Bob Pratt and Gary Wentworth rounded out the team leaders and were the team ' s main bench strength. a bit to short to block ok shot. 194 1959-60 BASKETBALL RECORD OMAHA 76 Midland 68 OMAHA 79 Doane 73 OMAHA 59 Peru 89 OMAHA 54 Colorado Mines 51 OMAHA 69 Nebraska Wesleyan 84 OMAHA 67 Regis 80 OMAHA 51 Nebraska Wesleyan 82 OMAHA 49 Emporia State 88 OMAHA 41 , U.S. Air Force Academy 90 OMAHA 44 Fort Hays State 83 OMAHA 52 Creighton 74 OMAHA 55 Rockhurst 70 OMAHA 50 Pittsburg 71 OMAHA 44 St. Benedict ' s 59 OMAHA 58 Fort Hays State 83 OMAHA 66 Washburn 92 OMAHA 60 Iowa Teachers 67 OMAHA 53 St. Benedict ' s 82 OMAHA 62 Pittsburg State 72 OMAHA 43 Creighton 87 OMAHA 56 Emporia State 101 OMAHA 79 Morningside 71 Top KiqhV.

OU golfer Bob Julich grabbed the conference medalist honors by shooting an eight over par 224 for 54 holes over the Atchison, Kansas, course. Julich and Merle Bolte also tied for medalist in the NCAA Midwest Regional Meet in Springfield, Missouri. On the way to a victorious season the sguad defeated Drake University, Grinnell College, Washburn U., South Dakota U. and cross-town rival Creighton University. Defeats came at the hands of Hastings and St. Benedicts Colleges. The team outscored its foes during the season by a 109 2 to 67 V2 margin. With only one man. Captain Bob Matthews, lost to graduation, the duffers look to be the team to beat in the CIC Conference. 197 The OU tennis team, coached by Jack Cotton, finished their winning season with a 7-2 mark. Teams defeated by the Indians include Doane Col- lege, Washburn, Drake, and Creighton University. The only defeats were to Nebraska University and Iowa State College from the Big Eight Conference. Russ Schlotzhauer, the Indians ' first singles player, finished second in the Central Intercollegiate Conference. The teimis team took fourth place in the conference meet held at Fort Hayes, Kansas. Returning to bolster the 1960 team are Schlotzhauer, Dick Donelson, and Lee Perkins. Losses from last year ' s squad include four-year letterman, Bob Bennett and three-year letterman, Frank Anderson. WRESTLING Another bright spot on the OU sports scene was the wrestHng team which compiled a 7-3-1 record, on of the best in history. Being a relatively young team on campus, the team participated without a senior; and, therefore, is looking forward to a fine season next year. The men with the best records were Bob Tall- man, Louie Miloni, and George Crenshaw, all who had ten wins and two losses. But these were not the only good records, however; Charles Whitner compiled a 7-1 record, and Jim Howard had a 7-2 mark. The grapplers ' record might have been even higher if Whitner and Andre McWilliams had not been lost scholastically for the second semester and Art Ferguson had not been injured. The wrestlers whipped Northwest Missouri, Fort Hays, Wilham Jewell, Graceland, (twice), and Adams State. They white-washed Simpson by a 30-0 score. The losses came at the hands of Iowa State Teachers, Northern IlUnois, and South Da- kota State. The squad earned a tie with Colorado School of Mines. Bob Tollman was named the honorary team captain for 1959-60 by the squad. George Cren- shaw grabbed both Outstanding Wrestler and Outstanding Freshman Candidate honors. The Most Improved Wrestler was Mel Masek.
