This average American boy and girl are fac- ing critical times, their plans for the future are uncertain, and even the present in which they live is confusing and tumultous. Yet the young " America " of to- day have everything to live for in this the finest land on earth. And so this book, in which we have attempted to set before you, life at Wyoming Uni- versity for the year 1940-41, we dedicate to you with the hope that at some future date, when it is brought forth from the files, it will help recall many happy hours spent at this Uni- versity.

Civil Aeronautic pilots also get their ground-school work here. Another view of " Old Main " , one of the most pic- turesque buildings on the campus. It houses the Presi- dent ' s suite and most of the administrative units of the University, including the of- fice of the Dean of Men and Women. Entirely renovated in the past year it has taken on new, clean look from in- side to out. The University library one of the busiest of all cam- pus buildings is also the home of the University Law school. It is here students go for valuable class reference and also to pick up their dates for their evening 9 o ' clock " coke " . The " lib " as it is popularly called operates at capacity whenever " final examination " time rolls around. V I) V D A rear view of the University green-house and Science hall. Here the botanists and geologists complete their college work. The Science hall also houses the University Museum. Not entirely unlike " Old Main " this building is one of the earliest in the history of the campus. A panoramic view of the campus as seen from a window of " Old Main " . Facing us directly is " Hoyt Hall " , women ' s dormitory, and on the left can be detected a section of " Merica Hall " , also serving as a dormitory for women. Far in the left background can be seen the Union building tow- ering above them all, with the Music hall, almost hidden by trees, flanking Hoyt Hall. Off in the distance are the Rocky Mountain ranges and Laramie plains. Truly the University can be termed an oasis amid nature ' s wildness. Behind the sharp outlines of this modern building the Liberal Arts stu- dents of the University attend classes. One of the newest additions to the cam- pus it is also the home of the University Auditorium. It is here the University plays host to eminent speakers and per- sonalities of the nation. The " LA " building was constructed with native sandstone in an architectural style remi- niscent of earlier and more romantic days. Wyoming ' s gymnasium, more familiarly known as " Hell ' s Half Acre, ' ' has perhaps the largest basketball floor of any such building in the Big Seven Con- ference. Besides containing small gyms, and swimming pool for indoor ath- letics, the building provides for administrative and drill facilities of the ROTC infantry unit. r mTrm n r i im t - m urr • ' m v rrrnrmor- r iiifT T iT nT rT T H ' H ?

Like some castle of old, the Men ' s Hall stands majestically protecting the northeastern approach to the campus although there be noth- ing but tumbleweed beyond. Up to date in every respect, the dormitory is one of the latest additions to the campus. . :. This is the entrance to another of the campus ' s oldest buildings, the Edu- cation building. Here Wyoming ' s potential teachers receive their train- ing in the University ele- mentary and secondary training schools. Fleecy clouds as pictured above spell wind for the students of Wyoming uni- versity, and then is when they duck their heads and bend forward to navigate across the campus. •n— 1 rmmm V This building is the home of the depart- ment of Agriculture, one of the most im- portant departments of the University, containing the colleges of Agriculture and Home Economics. Here too the official weatherman operates and makes his pre- dictions. Badly overcrowded, the depart- ment of Agriculture is in dire need of more room for equipment and to facilitate the work of the students. Two beautiful coeds, Helen Inkster, and Ramona Miner, relax for a moment on the old stone bench ' neath the pine trees, just south of the University library. BOOK ONE T President • deans e faculty « Clerks • Etc. il Here we see President Crane in a very familiar pose as he la- bors over the affairs and prob- lems of Wyoming University. Below we see his able secretary Miss Ida J. Moen, who has proved a valuable aid to the president in his 19 years of ser- vice to the college. P R E S .D. N T Vtdnt 1 ] u It may seem odd that the 1941 WYO is not dedicated to Dr. Crane in consideration of his 19 years of loyal and diligent service as president of this University. However, at Dr. Crane ' s own suggestion we have dedicated this book to the student body— his first interest. Throughout his career as " Prexy " , Dr. Crane expressed his devotion to the student body in many ways. His last statement to the students before he left the University was a recapitulation of this devotion. Aside from his academic interests, Dr. Crane realized the necessity of enlarging the physical plant of the University so that it might remain on par with the ever increasing enrollment. The many buildings that were erected during his administration will remain a lasting tribute to the service and com- radeship he has shown us. For continual conscientious administration Dr. Crane deserves our best wishes in whatever venture he turns toward. Here again we see Dr. Crane and Miss Moen seated at their desks in the office of " Old Man " . At these desks they have seen Wyoming University grow and prosper to an enrollment of over 2000. BHHHmwi TkmX- DEAN GOODRICU-Engineering Since 1928 Dean Ralph D. Goodrich has been head of the Engineering College at the University of Wyoming. The function of Dean Goodrich and his staff is to train future leaders in industrial development. To accomplish this purpose they offer a four-year curricula in the depart- ment leading to a B. S. degree in either Civil, Electrical, Mechanical or General Engineering. As a branch of the Engineering college the Civil Aeronautics Flying course is also under the jurisdiction of Dean Goodrich. DEAN SCHWIERING-EdMortiow As head of the College of Education, Dean Oscar C. Schwiering, Ph.D., has under his direction both the primary and secondary teachers courses and is also in charge of the summer school curricula. Much credit is due Dean Schwiering for his work in the summer school. In the short time he has been at the head of the Education college he has developed and enlarged the summer school curicula until it is fast becoming one of the most popular in the west. DEAN HILL-Agriculture Internationally known sheep and wool expert, Dean John A. Hill, B. S., since 191 3 has been head of the College of Ag- riculture at Wyoming. This college is fast building up its alumni, as graduates take an active part in agriculture and homemaking throughout the state. Uni- versity of Wyoming exhibits have won high honors at various livestock expositions over the country. The livestock judging teams, too, are a credit to the University and the College of Agriculture as they continually bring home only the top awards. DEAN MILLER-Liberal Arts The three divisions of the College of Liberal Arts make it, perhaps, one of the most varied of any of the colleges. At its head since 191 8 has been Dean Pleasant T. Miller, M. A., who has worked dili- gently to maintain high standards in the divisions of Letters and Sciences, Com- merce, and Music. Probably the most popular college at the University, Liberal Arts graduates more students each spring than any other. DEAN ARNOLD-Lflw In its twenty years of existence on the campus, Wyoming ' s Law College has made gratifying progress. At its head si nce 1933 has been Dean Carl F. Arnold, L. B., J. S. D. Next year, however, Dean Arnold has accepted a position in Wash- ington and will not be back. The law college and the University as a whole will miss his fine work, for under his leadership the college has received a class " A " rating from the American Bar Association, the highest classification given. The Uni- versity of Wyoming wishes Dean Arnold all the success in the world. ' TkwL- MAJOR DALY-Dean of Men The particular interest of Major Beverly C. Dalv, U. S. A., retired, is the welfare of every male student on the University of Wyoming campus. His job, you can guess, is Dean of Men. Despite the fact that the " Major " picked the wrong base- ball team to win the National League pen- nant he is admired and respected by ev- ery fellow at the University. Mention his name in a bull-session and here is the comment, " He is a swell guy and a good egg. " Visits to the office of Dean of Men are very frequent but they are not always to see Major Daly. Look at the lovely secretary he has working for him. MISS GALLIVER-Deflw of Women Miss E. Luella Galliver, M. A., directs the interests of the women students at Wyoming university in her capacity as Dean of Women. It can be easily said that Miss Galliver is as well liked by the coeds as Major Daly is by the men. Nat- urally the fellows can find fault with Miss Galliver on the 12 o ' clock night when the girls must all be in, but this is part of the job of the Dean of Women, and congenial Miss Galliver doesn ' t mind the complaints just as long as the girls get in. Miss Gali- ver is also on the faculty committees for student credit, student employment and student social life. The University of Wyoming is a state institution by a pro- vision of ' the Constitution of Wyoming. It is supported by the State of Wyoming and by the United States, and is undenomina- tional and nonpartisan. Its government is vested in a Board of Trustees, appointed by the Governor of Wyoming, with the con- sent of the State Senate. Pictured above are the present Board members. From left to right they are: Peter Sill, V. J. Facinelli, Mrs. Mary E. Cope, Bard Ferrall, Ralph S. Lynn, Fay E. Smith, board secretary, Frank Barrett, Mrs. Harriet Grieve, Harold Johnson, and Milward Simpson. BOOK TWO ll liii Seniors © Juniors © Sophs Freshmen W! 1 J ' . ' ' • " , V; M :■ I SENIOR ACTIVITIES A senior year of college is one to enjoy to the fullest. These two pictures show seniors as they catch a few minutes fresh air between classes. Among other senior activities is the " junior senior prom " where seniors are honored by the junior class. Seniors also participate in the spring " bridle and spur " ceremony, the traditional presen- tation of the bridle and spur, signifying leadership and example, to the junior class. Senior girls portray the " bored of trustees " at the annual senior girls ' coed ball. SENIOR CLASS OFFICERS Costin Rochelle Greenley Geisler The senior class was led this year by four competent officers. Serving as presi- dent was Curtis Rochelle; vice-president, Eugene Greenley; secretary, Dorothy Costin; treasurer, Dorothy Geisler. Since this class first came to the campus in 1937 they have witnessed nothing but improvement, and progress. They have seen two new buildings added; the Stu- dent Union, and Knight hall. They Greenley Costin Rochelle Geisler have seen four consecutive increases in enrollment. They have noted the revival of baseball as a conference sport, the revival of this book, the Wyo, as a record of student activities, and the inaugura- tion of our " Varsity show " student dramatic production. These seniors have done much to increase the rapid progress seen by the University. It is with regret that we see you go, seniors of 1941, and we wish you all the success in the world.

He is a member of Iron Skull, Alpha Zeta, Scabbard and Blade, and served as vice-president of the student senate in his junior year. Joe recently passed his exam- ination for the Linked States Air Corps and will graduate as a 2nd lieutenant, infantry reserve officer. It looks like the army for Joe so we salute him and wish him well. He claims Sheridan as his home town and is a member of Phi Delta Theta. Christian, Catherine Christofferson, DuWayne Cole, W. A.

" Bud " is a member of Iron Skull, and Scabbard and Blade, and play- ed varsity basketball for three years. Lie has always done Es- quire credit and could easily be called " best dressed man on the campus. " Bud also graduates as a 2nd lieutenant, infantry reserve of- ficer so it looks like the army. Everyone will miss him and partic- ularly a certain Pi Phi freshman. He is a member of Sigma Nu. Good luck Bud!

" Dot " is a member of Pan-Hellenic council, Mortar Board, Blue Pencil and past mem- ber of AWS board. She also served as a member of the student senate. How Dorothy has man- aged to do all these things and still drag down the best of grades will always remain a mystery to the most of us. She is a member of Pi Beta Phi, and hails from Lar- amie. It looks like wedding bells for " Dot " when she graduates so just in case we miss the wedding here ' s o ffering our congratulations for all the happiness in the world.

Since then he has won himself a host of friends and ad- mirers with his easy go ing manner and quick smile. Of course he was handicapped by not being able to speak English when first com- ing to school (you know how those southerners talk), but he quickly overcame this and now you can almost understand him when he speaks. He served this year on the student senate and last vear J was a member of the varsity foot- ball squad. You can always find him in the Wyoming Union foun- tain putting out " cokes " a hundred a minute. Seth is scheduled to be a school teacher but there is a possibility Uncle Sam may catch him in the draft. Whether with gun or ruler he has our best wishes. He is a member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon.

During her four years of college she has been a member of Pan-Hellenic council, Iron Skull, and Spurs. " Geke " always has a good word for everyone even though her heart interests have been divided between the Phi Delts and Sigma Nus. We don ' t know what her plans for the future may be but rest assured she will make a suc- cess of most anything she attempts. Dorothy is a member of Delta Delta Delta. Best of luck, " Geke " .

He is admired by everyone for his accurate far- sightedness and super-h u m a n qualities as an orator. " Ernie " served the students as president of their student senate last year and while in office performed his du- ties as has no other president. In- auguration of our " Varsity Show " and the re-birth of this yearbook as an annual publication is due large- ly to the efforts of " Marse " Wilker- son. He is off to the east next year for his law school training and one of these days we will all be able to say " We knew him when ... " Ernie is a member of Sigma Nu fraternity.

Tobin Clare Foote JUNIOR CLASS OFFICERS Jimmy Clare served as this year ' s junior class president, ably assisted by Peggy Tobin, vice-president and Donna Jean Foote as secretary and treasurer. Despite the fact that the class lost monev on its " Junior Prom " much can be said for the way in which it handled its other activities. In taking over the " bridle and spur " from the outgoing seniors this class has a splendid record to live up to, but we expect the best and know they won ' t let us down.

The four-year curricula offered at Wyoming University gives students training in all branches of engineer- ing work. J No, life at the University of Wyoming isn ' t all dances, picnics, week-ends, and celebrations. There are five days out of every seven when the student attends classes, puts in many hard hours of study and attempts to absorb at least a portion of the vast amount of knowledge put before him in lectures and books. For after all it is the purpose of every student in spending four years at such an institution to better fit himself for employment in later life. In these two pages we give you just a brief look at Wyoming students at work. We can ' t figure out whether this fellow is studying or gaz- ing at the picture on the wall. Zoologists at top are busy carving up the various animals in their study of anatomy, etc. In the journalism lab- oratory sophomore journalists get ex- perience in news-writing. The picture of the machine gives the next one away. In the engineering shops Wy- oming ' s potential industrialists are put to work learning the fundamentals of the various mechanical devices. This isn ' t a final exam and the two students aren ' t cribbing. More than likely they are preparing their registra- tion blanks and filling out their book- lets in preparation for a quarter ' s work. Uh« - SOPHOMORE CLASS ACTIVITIES The big sophomore responsibility is the sponsoring of the " Powder-River ball. " The motif for the affair was the old-time dance palace and as you can see the gambling fever was at a pitch. The western spirit runs high, and it was the time for fun and relaxation. Sophomores you did a good job on this dance. ' ■a ■ ' ■, . u SOPHOMORE CLASS OFFICERS Back for their second year of college life the sophomores performed their traditional duties of orientating the freshmen in fine style. Jimmy Speas coordinated all sophomore activities as president of the class. Jack Rhodes served as vice-president and Janet Trowe as secretary. From the first of the year this class let it be known that they were out to be the best to graduate from Wyoming University. Go to it gang!!

S. FRESHMEN CLASS ACTIVITIES The freshmen, confused by the in- numerable activities of college life, were consistently heckled by the sophomores in their attempts to " white-wash the W " , a traditional job of all first-year classes. Despite this, however, the freshmen did the job and did it well. The dance, as you can well imagine, is a school mixer, always well patronized by the freshmen. FRESHMEN CLASS OFFICERS The freshmen met, early in the fall, and elected the following to head the class for the year: president, Chauncey McDermott; vice-president, Earl Ray; secretary, Ann Sedar; treasurer, Shirley Blackwood. Under the guidance of these officers the class quickly adopted themselves to college, forgot about high- school and soon became known as the most promising freshman class in years. k Adams, Lois Assmussen, Adeline Bagley, Le Nore Baird, Cathern Barkley, Marjorie Bechtel, Lucy Anderson, John Atkinson, Maxine Barley, Betty Bassett, Shirley Barrett, James Bedont, Attilio Angeli, Zella Autry, Isabel Baldwin, Nellie Bath, Patricia Bayer, Jean Bender, Doris Bennett, Max Black, Clinton Bennion, Desmond Blackwood, Shirley Bi I le, Josephine Blagg, Colonel , Bush, William Carson, Jack Caffey, Jack Chambers, Reese Cameron, Jean Cheesbrough, Dorothy Carroll, Bill Christensen, Mary Lou Carroll, Eileen Clapp, Mary Bolle, Margaret Bernhart, Marion Bora, Eugene Bottom, Dorothy Bowman, Audra Bowns, Jean Boyce, Mary Braley, Maurine Britain, Marjorie Brown, Alice Brown, Barbara Brown, Byron Brown, Arlene Buchanan, Robert Bullock, Keith Burris, Mary Jane Carroll, Isabelle Clare, Mary Carroll, Peggy Coburn, Ruth L «j iM Eder, Alice Engel, Harold Elsinger, Evelyn England, Wallace Elson, James Erickson, Howard Collinson, Roger Crinklaw, Marjorie Daly, Helen Louise Deaton, Nona Donnelly, Grant Duvall, Nellie Costin, Peggy Culusgol, Mary Jane Davis, Audry Denham, Cynthia Dorius, Vivian Duzik, Connie Coutts, Betty Daiss, Donald Dayton, Betty Digman, Jack Downing, Margaret Eads, Roberta Q Erwin, Margaret Faulkner, Jean Estes, Frances Faulkner, Mary Evans, Barbara Fear, Cornelia Fackrell, Harold Ferentchak, John Faler, Harold Ferrell, Warren Farlow, Betty Flagg, Donna Farmer, Gene Foose, Harry French, Robert Fuller, Elisha Fulton, Aubyn Gard, Charles Gard, Jack Gardner, Wamoth Gibbs, Gloria Given, Doris Golden, Mae Grant Mary Green, Millis Griffiths , Darwin Haas, Bernard Hager, Martha Hall, Geraldine Hall, Marion Halsey, Edward Hanson, Vivian Hemler, Lois Herold, Muriel Heward, Arthur Hogg, Mary Hamblin, Louis Harper, Billie Henderson, Bill Herrod, Sharg Higgins, Joseph Holcomb, Laurine Hansen, Ordeen Hayes, Elliot Henderson, Carlos Hetland, Ellen Hill, Ella Mae Holland, Alice Holloway, Lura Hostman, Robert Holm, Peggy Howall, Marilyn Hoopman, Betty Lou Hulme, Bill Hungate, Winford Hurst, Mary Huston, Orvene Inkster, Helen fflkm m Jacquot, Phil I is Jennings, Jeanne Jester, Carrie Lee Jochim, Alberta Johnson, Carmel Lee Johnson, Dorothy Johnson, Elaine Johnson, Helen Ruth Jones, Myrna Jones, Bob Judkins, Evelyn Kastner, Stuart Keeline, Joe Kistler, Louis Kees, Harold Kienhoff, Ruth Keldsen, Evelyn Kirby, Cecil Kelley, Robert Kirkbride, Doris Kerns, Elizabeth Koerting, Donald Keevert, Ward Kokesh, Bertha Kessler, Daniel Konroth, Alys lacMannus, Gordon Manewal, Ursula Mahan, Arlene Martin, Phyllis Mahoney, Beverley Masters, William La Follette, Afton Lee, Donnabell Lissolo, Jane Lucey, Myrtle McComas, Howard McDowell, Anne Larson, Dorothy Lewis, Glenn Lockard, Harold Luttrell, Charles Lee, Betty Jane Lesiak, John Logsdon, Rosemond McCleary, Bryant IcClullock, Robert McDermott, Chauncey IcKinnis, Earl Macintosh, Richard Matson, Margaret Minihan, Joe Matthews, Pete Mitchell, Betty lau, Maxine loore, Etta letz, Patricia Vloore, John Miller, Phillis Morgan, Maxine Mills, Robert Mori, Aldo Miner, Ramona Mothershead, Mary Mowrey, Myrtle Murphy, Walter Murray, Helen Nash, Helen Marie Nelson, Betty Nelson, Shirley Mae Nesmith, Milton Newman, Maxine Norman, Marion Novak, Eva Oliver, Albert Olsen, Leslie Osterwald, Frank Papich, Eva Paradise, Evelyn Patten, Dorothy Pattinson, Gladys Perry, La Vonne Petry, Bill Pfister, John Priborsky, Doris Purvis, Paul Peck, Roy Peternal, Otto Petterson, James Phillips, Glendrid Protsman, Ward Putnam, Arthur Pegan, Cynthia Peters, Russell Pfaff, Mary Preator, Guy Pullen, Lois Ray, Earl Rawhauser, Omer Ring, Donald Reed, Gordon Robertson, Ted Richards, William Robertson, Mark Robinson, June Roe, Bill Rogers, Amy Roney, Murry Roush, Donna Jean Ruland, Dale Ryan, Ruth Sakata, Hisaka Sanobak, Paul Sandell, Catherine Saunders, Jean Sauter, Betty Lou Schmehl, Sam Schoenfeld, Derek Schulte, Robert Sears, Robert Sedar, Anne Smith, Fay Sharp, Marjorie Smith, Langdon Shaw, Dick Smith, Leslie Shepherd, Robert Snell, Hilman Shoemaker, Lorain Snell, Ivan Simmors, Martha Spencer, Shirlee r ■ Slane, Barbara Spurlock, Charles i 4in Vass, Ruby Van Kennel, Barbara Vaudrey, Russell Ver Brugge, Margaret Vannatta, Earlyn Vollman, William Stallman, Anna Stitt, Owen Tanner, Betty Lou Thomas, Vernon Timlin, Catherine Tunnel!, Willis Stevenson, Delsa Syme, Robert Taylor, Helena Thompson, Harry Tribby, Maxine Uerling, Jean Stirling, James Tallman, Charles Thomas, Donald Thompson, J.

During a moment ' s adjournment senators Ruth Marlatt, Dorothy Roper, Bob Murphy, Earl Sandbak, Charles Christensen, William Felton (Vice-President) and Marion McDowell enjoy a bit of a bull-session. Under the leadership of Teno Roncalio the student senate began its third year of existence under the revised constitution of ASL1W. Then when Teno was called to Washington Glenn Mullins stepped in to fill his shoes. Operat- ing on a budget of a little less than $10,000 the student senate this year did an admirable job in conducting the affairs of the student body. Work in such an organiaztion requires much time and effort by the student members and they deserve credit and praise for their accomplishments.

Excursion Victor Wolf son The University Players under the direc- tion of Mr. Dean G. Nichols opened the Fall season with the presentation of Broad- way success Excursion. Using sets designed for lightning changes, the action progressed swiftly through the three acts revealing the search for happiness of the passengers and crew— their attempt to run away from the dull routine of their lives back on the main- land, and the final return home with a new and hopeful outlook for the future. The play was well chosen to begin the theatrical year, as it provided opportunity for appear- ance to a large group of theatrical enthusiasts, and at the same time proved highly entertain- ing to an appreciative audience. The passengers and crew gather in the Captain ' s cabin to hear the radio reports of their run-away trip down the Jersey coast. Twelfth Night r What You win by William Shakespeare The countess Olivia played by Caroline Pritchard. Olivia ' s uncle Sir Toby Belch played by Daniel Deti. The clown Feste played by Winford Hungate. Fabian, played by Chares Rushia. A beautifully set production or Shakespeare ' s Twelfth Night was presented by the class in play production under the direction of Lawrence Voss. This was perhaps the artistic achievement of the year, and was costumed and set entirely by students. The lusty flavor of the play was expertly handled, bringing to the audience an accurate and under- standing presentation of Shakespearean drama. Maria (Helen Inkster) and Feste (Winford Hun- gate) poke fun at Mal- volio ' s (Michel Horjelsky) gartered hose. Malvolio (Michel Horjelsky) believes he has won the favor of the Countess Olivia (Caroline Pritchard) and pleads his case while Fabian (Charles Rushia), Sir Andrew Aguecheek (Eldon Spicer) and Maria (Helen Inkster) are highly amused at the ridiculous figure he cuts.

Here We Go Again Wyoming presents the Varsity Show of 1940 in- augurating a new form of entertainment on this cam- pus! This show supplanted the time worn Stunt Night, and was written, directed, acted and produced entirely by students. A courageous band of pioneers fought for the idea that progress was needed in the entertainment world in Wyoming, resulting in the pro- duction of the first Varsity Show " Here We Go Again " . The story had a local setting, and was mainly concerned with the search for a lost ranch reported to be some- where in old Wyoming. With a musical score con- taining many hit tunes, beautiful chorus girls, settings by Vina Games, Wyoming ' s outstanding artist, and a script of sparkling dialogue, the show won the acclaim of both Laramie and Cheyenne audiences. Added honors were given the show when it was chosen as one of the seven best college shows of the nation for 1940, by the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers. This year ' s Wyo is setting a precedent which it hopes other year books in the future will follow, by running pictures and the account of the previous year ' s Varsity Show. The whole cast of 125 entrains at the depot for Cheyenne. The outstanding number of the show was the boogie-woogie scene in which Gladys DeBerry appeared as the dancer, embody- ing the spirit of jungle rhythm pulsating through the negro boogie-woogie. The cowgirl chorus at right is composed of Alice Jackson, Abby Peterson, Maxine Rouk- ema, Betty Kirkpa trick, and Bunny Wright. Billy Norman and Norma Call (center), the two romantic leads arrive at the station in Cheyc cnnc. Director Bob Mitchell checks the cast as they board the train at Laramie to take the show to Cheyenne. A special show train was chartered to make the trip. N 77 Editor Bill Shutts Today the fun and study of the 1940-41 school year is a vivid realization. But as the years roll away few of us will recall homecoming or the grade we made or failed to make in that 00 class. Still it is not the purpose of this book to present an exacting chronicle of events. That is a job for a patient historian. Our job is to hold the mirror up to the passing parade that has been this school year and to set the occasional reflections into engravings and type. This we hope we have succeeded in doing. Assistant to the Editor Teddy Ann Storey Ilff... Classes Editor Jane Bon reviews last year ' s annual while (background) Levitt warns Jernigan that he ' s spending too much money. Business Manager Gene Levitt It is obvious that the various editors and photographers alone cannot do all the work connected with putting out a quality year- book. There must be a staff, a competent staff, insignificant in name but vital to the o production of an annual. The editors ap- preciate the work done on the 1941 Wyo by the following staff members: Lenore Reichmuth, Anne Laughlin, Helen Ink- ster, Peggy Frazer, Shirley England, Louise Starr, Donna Jean Roush, Vivien Berkshire, Dorothy Costin, Mary Jane Gre- welle, Georgina Haddentorst, Dorothy Jolley, Helen Johnston, Dick McAllister, Jane McMurray, Homer Grooman, Bettv Nails, Peggy Tobin, Mary Anne Wilcox and Ruth Warden. Lee Stitt, pictured in a self-portrait, is the official photographer for the WYO. He had helping him Bob Richardson, Ray Ring, and Bob Robinson. To Lee goes much credit for the quality of pictures in the WYO. He ' s one of the hardest workers of the staff. Shutts does a bit of layout describing ... or is it that? — Anyway everyone seems quite happy. Business Manager Evelyn Edwards Succeeding George Johnston as managing editor, Gene Levitt further streamlined the Branding Iron and introduced an increased use of illustrations, a belliger- ent editorial policy, and a greater campus. news coverage. The staff covered all campus news, wrote features and personal columns, sold advertising, produced edi- torials that the Association Collegiate Press described as " insurgent, " and managed to stay on the financially healthy side of the ledger. Front page forms are checked with Back Shop Foreman Doug Tib- betts (center) before the paper goes to press. Neither a successful business manager nor an ambi- tious managing editor can make a newspaper without an able news staff Thoroughly realizing this the 1941 Branding Iron editorial board wishes to express thanks to the following reporters— they have covered the news: Leland Brokaw, Betty Caldwell, Catherine Christian, Bob Cruzen, J. Newell Hall, Mathoni Han- sen, Helen Inkster, Vincent Karl, Joe Kauffman, Marian McConnell, Marjorie Manorgan, Helen Meyer, Bill Shutts and Alberta Jochim. Desk Editor Jean Ann Dunn Sports Editor Jack Moses and an unidentified pair of feet pass judgment on the metropolitan writers.

Groutage saw to it that no division of the University was neglected in each issue of the paper. Colonel Craig, seated, and Captain Hilt, standing, compare their records. Wyoming University is doing its part for national defense under its federal grant of a Reserve Officers Training unit. The infantry regiment under the command of Lt. Colonel Malcolm E. Craig, Professor of Military Science and Tactics has attained honor rating for many years and at the annual summer camp for advanced corps students, Wyoming ' s future reserve officers have always maintained the highest of averages. The advanced corps, open to only a percentage of cadets with two years basic credit, has more than ioo students in its class. The entire regiment, recently transferred to the ninth corps area, consists of approximately 800 cadets. Assisting Colonel Craig with drill and class work are Lts. Stanley T. Winter, Harold E. Gould, Michael Sedar; Sgts. Ralph W. Jones, Perry A. Raines, and Victor L. Clark. In the clerical office are Captain Mitchell Hilt, and Sgt. William H. Smith. Major Louis Knicker and Sgt. Emil Stanley are in charge of the supply office and Mr. H. W. Thompson instructs the ROTC band. Wyoming reserve officer gets his training in the 3 caliber machine gun. Advanced corps students get in- struction in the firing of the trench ' - t f mortar at summer camp. Basic cadets perform calisthentic drill when poor weather keeps them in the armory. Lt. Winter, left, and Lt. Gould, right discuss the problems of the cadet ' s drill. I ;J Mr. Thompson puts the ROTC band through their paces at their Thursday practice. The University Radio studio, directed by Bob Mitche ii, producers three shows weekly (very weakly) which are distributed by transcription through the Rocky Mountain Radio Council.

Wheeler of the Animal Production department have always made fine records for themselves and the University. This year ' s teams are no exception. The senior team competed in five inter-collegiate meets at Denver, Portland, Chicago and twice at Ogden. They captured second place honors at Denver and Ogden, third at Portland and were ranked 25 out of 31 teams competition in Chicago. The Junior team has competed twice, at Denver and Fort Worth, winning sixth place at both meets. These boys deserve much credit for their unheralded efforts and hard work.

From left to right: Coaches Calhoun, Hokuf, Shelton, Blanchard. ic " he realm of high school supremacy came C. H. Blanchard to try his hand at ramrodding Wyoming ' s Punchers into football winners. Serving Athletic Director and head football coach " Okie " had a busy year. Okie ew that he was taking a hard job. He inherited a squad with few experi- nced hands, scarcity of numbers, and light in bulk. There was no shirking of work by the coach, and the men who tried to get by with less than their team-mates found themselves watching from the sidelines. However the handi- caps were too much and with the exception of a surprise victory over New Mexi- co and a o-o tie with Colorado Aggies, Wyoming fell again before the attack of the Big Seven teams. This spring Okie resigned to take the job of Dean of Students. His successor is Bernard F. Oakes. Coach Oakes need not be in- troduced to any one in the Rocky Mountain region for his reputation spread far and wide while he was developing championship teams at Colorado University. Coach Blanchard gazing speculatively across the gridiron at his Cowboys. The student managers who have no little task. Stitt on the left and Cruzen. Always Wyoming says " wait till next season " . We wonder if possibly in the near future the " next season " that we are waiting for will come. With a frosh team that has class and power and a few high caliber lettermen back, Coach Oakes may pull a few out of the fire next year. Spring practice this year showed much promise although lack of numbers again played havoc. If injuries can be kept to a mini- mum the new coach might find the fates a little kinder to him than they have been to his predecessors.

The small crowds that sat in the wind-rocked stands saw the Cow- boys fight, ever out-manned, never out-gamed, each opponent to a standstill until superior numbers began to tell. Feeley, thundering fullback, smashed and drove his way through every opponent. Dunigan, small but danger- ous tailback, rifled passes and streaked his way for many precious yards. Thorpe, Moncini, Wilmont, and others won their right to wear a Wyoming sweater with their never dying spirit. The coach saw few victories, but never did he see a team that he was more proud of.

Facing the camera is George Walker, property custodian. With back to the camera is Bill Jernigan, sports editor of the year book. Back in 1934 when Wyoming was rolling over all basketball foes, ardent sports writers created the phrase " Wy- oming against the world. " As the basketball season of 1940- 4 1 slipped into its final games the sports writers began dusting off that old phrase. Coach Ev. Shelton in his second year as head basket- ball coach at Wyoming University, expertly guided his Punchers to the top rung in the Big Seven ladder of su- premacy. And the man at the helm is only beginning. The championship team was a group of hustling sophomores and Juniors with only two seniors on the squad and only one in the starting lineup. The club was the most popular in the history of Wy- oming sport annals. All attendance records fell by the way- A very usual sight during a Wyoming game is Coach Shelton standing on his feet unable to suppress his enthusiasm or dis- gust as the case might be. Looking at the floor is Freshman Coach Dean O ' Connoi ' , whose boys gave the varsity many a hectic afternoon. Governor Nels Smith, honorary captain, smiles at what he sees. side as every town and ranch in Wyoming begged for tickets. At every home game many disappointed fans were turned away. There is no question of what made this team so pop- ular. It was not merely the fact that it won games; not merely because Coach Shelton had turned out the smoothest piece of basketball machinery most fans ever saw. No the reason was pride; pride of Wyoming products. Yes, the home town boys made good. Every man of the squad of eleven was a Wyoming product. Each had been famous in his own right on a Wyoming high school five. So thus it is rightly, " Wyoming against the world. " Shelton and his eleven Wyomingites played against men from every part of the country and not once were they over- shadowed, not even in defeat. Next season the team will miss the two seniors who did their part in bringing to Wyoming a title. To take their places will be many men from this year ' s Frosh squad, who have the height, the speed, and the talent. However, they will have a hard job to fill even if they show the com- petitive spirit and team work that the Messers. Bentson and Kerback had. The newcomers and veterans will be molded into a smooth working unit by their canny coach, and our prophecy is, " Wyoming will repeat her victory march and it will again be Wvomino against the world ' . " The squad from left to right: Coach Shelton, Strannigan, Sailors, Smith, Kerback, Muir, Weir, Krpan, Rothman, Butche, ' , Bentson, Gouty, Walker (property custodian), James Buchanan, manager; and Steve Shei- ton, inascot. Wyoming ' s usual starting lineup had Big Jim Weir at Center, Bill Strannigan and Wily Willy Roth- man at Guards, Chueks Bentson at one forward; and Curt Gouty or Kenny Sailors at the other for- ward post. This occasionally var- ied and Nick Krpan or Carl Ker- back would be on the starting fiya It didn ' t seem to matter who started however for Coach Shelton never hesitated to take any one out of a game if they were " off.

Whereas the team gave in fight and drive and sweat the others gave in all the vocal aid they could muster.

It was a moment to be enjoyed by both caach and player for Colorado was the defending champion who had unmercifully beaten us last year. By the door stand Okie Blanciiard and down the wall is Dean O ' Connor, both listen- ing to the words of praise and Ci ' it ' cism that Coach Shelton is giv- ing. Practice and Coach Shelton not only explains but demonstrates his theories of winning basketball. With the ball is a man to watch this coming season Freshman Jack Pui- man. Wyoming vs. Colorado Aggies. However this is not a picture to illustrate a game but one to show how they packed them in when the Cowboys strutted their stuff. When the firing was all over the champion- ship safely tucked away the Punchers also won their share of individual honor. Bill Stranni- aan, the smoothest basketball artist to ever play on a Wyoming court, and Willy Rothman, appropriately called Wily Willy, won the two guard positions on the All-Conference selection. In addition Kenny Sailors made second team forward and was called one of the two out- standing sophomores to show during the season. Strannigan leaves a Colorado Ag- gie man sitting as he cuts under the hoop and scores. Governor Nels Smith, Wyoming ' s honorary captain, tosses up the ball to start the Denver game. Who is the Cowboys most rabid fan? We can ' t say tor sure but our candidate is George Walker. George has been six seasons at Wyoming as property custodian and never has he missed a home game. When the team plays away from home he drives the world crazy attempting to discover the results. George also has dreams and he applies them to the games attempting to prophesy the winner. Often he is right. Suprised was George Walker when this shot was snapped. " Why didn ' t you tell me so I could smile, " he asked disappointedly. Next to Walker we pick Governor Smith as Wyoming ' s number one rooter. Made honorary captain the Governor traveled many a mile to see " his " team play. It is rumored that he left an important meeting in Den- ver to go to Fort Collins and see Wy- oming whip the Aggies. Another surprise caught Curt Gouty, Willy Rothman, Kenney Sailors and Clint Butcher in various stages of undress. DUNNIGAN BIGGS STRANNIGAN BOSTWICK MIYAMOTO Coaches O ' Connor and Calhoun.

ANDERSON PATTERSON BARKER WHISTON Coach Dean O ' Connor faces the same handi- cap each spring; the unpredictable Wyoming weather. It is seldon that the club can work outside more than a day or two at a time. They are confiined to the limited space of the armory for the majority of the practice sessions. Consequently, the batting and fielding eyes are not what they should be. With this seri- retardment to cope with the coach and team must work extra hard every chance they get. This year ' s club wil be built around five lettermen and Bill Strannigan, the boy who re- turned home. It is a club with dormant power that might explode at any time. If the wind and snow show any consideration the team might easily repeat last year ' s performance of finishing second in the Big Seven Conference. The power laden bats of the Puncher ' s two all-conference selections, John Winterholler and Chucks Bentson will be missing. Filling their positions, however, will be two sophomores, Al Lokanc and Don Biggs, who weild " run-get- ting " bats.

At the time this copy was being written Coach Hokuf, in his first season as track coach, had already proven him- self successful. With two victories in three dual starts his men had already overshadowed most teams of the past. The return of Victor Perkovitch plus four point get- ting sophomores, Jim Weir, Ken Sailors, Joe Mangus, and Hyrum Shumway, added greatly to his point making squad. In addition David Arrivee continually picked up points in the high hurdles. Lack, Begonia, Parker, and T. Jones, all lettermen, added their share of points. E. Jones in the polevault and C. Jones in the low hurdles and sprints were other stars. From left to right the personnel of of the golf squad is W.lly Rothman, Jim Halloran, Coach Ev Shelton, Jim Clare, Don Gawthrop, Roy Coady.

They are Clare, Halloran and Coady. Rothman, who is following Shelton from the court, did not par- ticipate last year because of illness.

Smith was with- out doubt the headliner of the squad, although Baldwin and Hale won titles, for he was undefeated in three years of conference competition. Coach Lantz, once a Cowboy great himself, need not take a back seat when the laurels are being given. He molded his sophomores into champs and his mediocre squad into a definite title threat.

Queens • Homecoming • Dances o Campus Life s " «i Vivacious is the only word to describe this active young lady who was chosen as Wyoming University ' s beauty queen by Earl Carroll, foremost authority on femininity. A freshman from Lander Helen is a member of Pi Beta Phi. Besides working on the Branding Iron staff Helen has been prominent in sev- eral college dramatic productions. I This charming young lady from Green River was awarded the distinction of second place in this year ' s beauty contest. Beverly is a freshman and a member of Pi Beta Phi. Informally we see her gazing from the window in the Union lounge. Wonder who she is waiting for? Well liked by everyone is " Bubbles " who tied for third place in the annual beauty contest. Senior from Casper, she won first in the contest her sophomore year. She is on the yearbook staff and a member of Delta Delta Delta. Inci- dentally she was quite put out when we caught her at work on the yearbook with her hair done up in one of those infernal handkerchiefs. - This sophisticated young lady re- peated her performance of last year by once again winning third place in the beauty contest, but this year she shared honors with " Bubbles " Cooke. A mem- ber of Kappa Kappa Gamma, Twila is a junior and claims Laramie as her home. One can ' t miss her as she tours the campus in that striking de-luxe club coupe. u ' A junior from Laramie, Elinor was chosen by the entire college of Engineers to reign as their queen at the annual " Engineers Ball " , which opens the fall quarter formal dance season. She is a member of Pi Beta Phi. At left we see her with her escort, Glenn Mullins, immediately after the coronation cere- monies. This dark-haired talented lass was chosen by the entire cadet corps as queen of the Military Ball. Sally was winner of last year ' s beauty contest. She is very active in dramatics and radio and is a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma. We see her also with Cadet Colonel Bill Mann as they began the grand march beneath arched sabers of the cadet officers at the dance. The honor of reigning queen of the campus for a week-end was bestowed upon this young freshman last Home- coming. The election is sponsored by the Potter law club and the entire student body votes. In the company of protecting lawyers we see her as she rode in the Homecoming parade. y The Junior class presented to Miss Kennedy the honor of " Queen of the junior-senior prom " . The dance is given by the juniors for the graduating class. This charming miss makes her home in Laramie and is a member of Delta Delta Delta. Informally we catch her " shooting the airplanes " in the Union lounge. POPULARITY Voted by the entire student body as " most popular man on the campus " Kenny is a sophomore and hails from Laramie. In his first year or varsity sports Kenny has proved himself as a valuable man in both basketball and track. His most familiar garb is the white waiter ' s jacket worn by the foun- tain men in the Union, where his quick smile and gift of gab has won him a host of admirers. He is a member of Phi Delta Theta.

Sorority and fraternity houses blossom with their decorations and merry- making is the keynote for the week end celebration. Touching off the fireworks is the homecoming sing, Friday evening prior to the big pigskin battle the next afternoon. At the sing the Homecoming Queen is presented to the student body after which she leads them in the pep-rally for the team. Next morning floats, bands, and parading students combine to add further in the fun with the Homecoming parade. In the afternoon is the big game followed that evening by the Homecoming dance in the gymnasium.

Flags and bunting decorate the gymnasium and as we peek in on the event the grand march is just getting under way. From the first all-University mixer to the last spring formal the University of Wyoming has perhaps as many dances as any similar institution in the land. The Engineers Ball inaugurates the fall quarter formal season and at this time the tuxedo and long dress come out of the closet for the winter. Then spotted intermittently between the various " dress-up " occasions are dances such as Sadie Hawkins, Powder River Ball, and the Commerce Carnival where everyone lets down his hair and enjoys a rollicking good time. Soon the arrival of spring and with the AWS formal dance the warm weather and moonlight affairs are formally launched. Thus the cycle of dances continues from one year to the next and the very strange thing about it all is that no one ever gets tired of them. Everyone looks forward to the next week-end and the dance. This might be any one of a dozen all- University dances at the gymnasium where with plenty of room for fancy " rug-cut- ting " the student body turns out en-masse. The scene below was snapped at the Pan Hellenic council ' s winter formal. At this dance each sorority presents a chorus, singing various school and sorority songs. It was during one of the songs the picture was taken. Pictured above are Helen Inkster and Robert Young, winners of the prize for the outstanding couple portrayal of " dog- patch " citizens at the annual " Sadie Haw- kins " dance. This dance was inaugurated two years ago and is the big time of the year for the men, as it is up to the girls to chase them and " tag " them for the dance. Wyoming has seen its last Sadie Hawkins dance, however, because of vari- ous reasons it will not be continued next year. At top we witness the presentation of the honorary cadet colonel, the two honorary cadet majors and band sponsor, the highlight of the Military Ball. Each girl receives an engraved cup signifying the honor bestowed upon her. Below we see Bob- bie Dunbar ' s " Collegians " all decked out for one of the more " informal " dances of the year. The Collegians have provided some fine music for many of the " get-to-gethers " on the campus and they are recognized as one of the finest dance ban ds on the campus. At left Curt Rochelle and Lucille Chambers do a bit of fancy swingin ' at the Sadie Hawkins dance, and on their right Jack Shutts and Virginia Huff- meyer seem quite intrigued with the manipulations of their feet. Could it be that they are having a bit of trouble keeping off each others toes? Below the gang comes out in western togs for the " Powder River Ball. " With their mock gambling parlor and mock bar they enjoy themselves in the true Wyoming style and bring back for one night the time when the west was riotous and rough. Freddie Hart and Betty Jane Cham- bers truly entered into the spirit of " dogpatch " and the story is out that they didn ' t even recognize each other when the time came for them to go to the dance. After one look at that picture I can see where they might be a bit confused as to their proper identity. V D Coeds will act up and these two cow-girls parade at the annual " Coed Ball. " As Knight hall, new girls ' dormitory, opens we find two young ladies already trying out the desks for studying. Teno Roncalio and Danny Hoffman, candy store proprietors, go over their accounts. Tommy Francis seems to have ac- quired a sweet armful. How does he rate the two of them? Could these two be crying over spilled milk. Your guess is as good as ours. " All work and no play ..-., " but then you know the saying as well as we do. So here we have stu- dents or Wyoming uni- versity as they have fun and relax a bit from the books. Girls of Knight hall cook up a batch of fudge in one of the innumerable little kitchens created for just such purposes. And so we go through college . . . we have our bull-sessions, we take a quick nap right after dinner, we cook up midnight snacks before bedtime, we do many things that can ' t be found in the University bulletins or catalogues. But look back into the history of colleges and you will find that students did the very same things years ago. It is a part of college life . . . appreciate it, every minute of it, for it doesn ' t last forever. Place — Men ' s dormitory. Time — most any evening.
