"To the Greatest University of the 
West, in Embryo."

His was the power to touch the opening buds of human life and make them 
blossom into splendid character. 

Dr. Martin Perry Henderson was one of the most brilliant, and at the same time one of the 
most dearly loved men who ever blessed the B. Y. U. His fine scholarship put him on a level 
with the great scientists of our nation, and his insight into, and his love for human nature, made 
him a master teacher. 

From early youth Dr. Henderson displayed that remarkable quality of unfaltering industry 
which was one of his great characteristics. It actuated his scholastic activities at the B. Y. 
Academy, the University of Utah, and the University of Wisconsin. 

Having taken out his Ph. D. in 1914, he came to the Brigham Young University the following 
year where two years ago he became Dean of the College of Arts and Science. In this capacity 
Dr. Henderson had ample opportunity to come into direct contact with the students, and those 
who did come in contact with him. desired to live cleaner, think deeper and strive for higher 
things. He assisted them with their problems, and encouraged them to continue their work in 
education. In fact, he became the great teacher friend of the students, and how well he succeeded 
in this great art can best be summed up in what is written in their hearts. There lies a firm re- 
solve to live in thought and deed in harmony with the higher vision which his teachings gave them. 

One problem which vitally interested Dr. Henderson was the effect of tobacco upon the body. 
It was his opinion that the lowered efficiency of tobacco use might be shown through scientific 
experimentation, to be carried to the third and fourth generation. Although he was not permitted 
to see the problem to its conclusion, the investigation which he began is to be carried on in the 

We cannot forget Dr. Henderson — that man to whom principle was paramount, in spite of 
personal interests. In our lives his spirit cannot die.

Edward A. Morgan 

He was sincere in purpose 
— noble in deed. 

Sympathy, competency 
and an inspiring personality 
were distinctive character- 
istics of Edward A. Morgan, 
who was summoned by 
death December 22, 1923. 
Wherever Mr. Morgan was 
known he was loved and his 
earnest efforts in various ed- 
ucational institutions of 
Utah were crowned with suc- 
cess. His sincerity, kindness 
and sympathy endeared Pro- 
fessor Morgan to his many 
friends and students. 
Though he had been with the 
institution but a short time, 
his influence for good was 
keenly felt and his absence 
is much lamented.

Geo. H. Brimhall, D.Sc.D.,Ll.D. 

President Emeritus. Head of Department of Theology 

He is a man who sees the beautv beyond the horizon 
and imparts its invigorating truths to others. His 
teachings open the gate-way which leads to the maxi- 
mum abundant life, and the flowers of thought which 
his inspirational speeches leave in the hearts of the 
students must surelv ripen into precious fruit. 

John C. Swenson, M. A. 

Acting Dean of the College of Education 

Rapid but consistent development in the department 
of the College of Education have been greatly fostered 
by the activities of acting dean Swenson. The result 
is that the objective of this college in the training of 
teachers for efficient leadership is being realized. Close 
cooperation with the Provo City system has extended 
the laboratory of training experience for the large 
number of students securing normal certification. 

Carl F. Eyring, Ph. D. 

Dean of the College of Art's and Sciences 

The great opportunities provided through the de- 
partments of the College of Arts and Sciences, meet 
the needs of a liberal as well as a specialized educa- 
tion. Original investigation in the fields of science is 
fostered and equipment for graduate work is offered. 
Dean Evring has most successfully directed the ac- 
tivity of this College during the past year and his 
valuable advice has been appreciated by the numerous 
students under it's jurisdiction. 

Page Tuienty-seven 

Harrison V. Hoyt, E. E., M. B. A. 

Dean of the College of Commerce and 
Business Aim inislration 

The College of Commerce and Business Administra- 
tion, under the Deanship of H. V. Hoyt, is recognized 
as having placed into the business field, during the 
3 years of its existence, men who are wholly capable 
to meet with practical problems and to fill respons- 
ible positions with merit. The close cooperation of 
intermountain business firms has made possible the 
practical application of the business training. 

The demand for the graduate of this college is not 
wholly local and far exceeds the present number. The 
standard of work done and thoroughness of training 
justifies the excellent rating which this college of our 
University is rapidly obtaining. 

M. C. Merrill, Ph. D. 

Dean of College of Applied Science 

The College of Applied Science provides instruc- 
tion in the scientific principles and technical opera- 
tions pertaining to the farm, home, shop and all prof- 
fessions related to them. Under the efficient leader- 
ship of Dean Merrill, who has received extensive 
training and professional experience, this recently 
created College has won much distinction: and in spite 
of its youth now ranks third in membership among 
the various colleges of the University. 

Lowry Nelson, B. 

Director of Extension Division 

The service of the Extension Division is invaluable 
in carrying the message of fruits of education to 
those who do not have the opportunity to do residence 
work. Director Nelson has spared no effort in his 
attempt to develop and expand this department. 
Through its three divisions Social Service, Correspond- 
ence Instruction, Lectures and Enetertainments, the in- 
fluence of the "Y" has been carried to thousands of 
students and citizens of the intermountain country.

Christen Jensen, M. A., Ph. D. 

Chairman of the Division of Graduate Work 

Comparable to the expansion of the various col- 
leges of the B. Y. U. has been the growth of the 
Graduate Division. The membership is constantly 
increasing and the approved rating of Y credentials 
will undoubtedly effect even a larger enrollment in 
the near future. The excellent scholarship of chair- 
man Christen Jensen is an asset to the division and his 
efforts to see that due consideration be given these ad- 
vanced students and that the highest of graduation 
standards be maintained, are being happily realized. 

Mrs. Amy Lyman Merrill 

Dean of Women 
She Loves Girls! 

As Dean of Women at the Y, Mrs. Merrill is a 
potent moving force. She cultivates all the finer 
phases of college life — having initiated the A. W. S. 
movement here last year and started it working as a 
permanent institution. Out of this has grown the 
annual Girls' Banquet, which it is hoped will become 
one of the permanent traditions of the school. 

Mrs. Merrill is the advisor and counselor of the 
girls. She stimulates them to greater effort in scholar- 
ship and cooperation with them in their social prob- 
lems. She comforts the homesick, the heartsick and 
sometimes the lovesick. She loves girls. 

Hugh M. Woodward, Ph. D. 

Dean of Summer School 
Much of the success which attends the summer ses- 
sions at the Brigham Young University, may be at- 
tributed to the zealous and efficient efforts of Dean 
Woodward. Under his direction, the Alpine Summer 
School has won national recognition and is known to 
be a vital factor in extending the influence and prest- 
ige of the university. The teaching corps has been 
enhanced by securing for the summer term distin- 
guished men from other institutions which has like- 
wise increased the enrollment and has been the means 
of drawing students from remote localities to our

The B.Y. U. Alumni Association 

The past year has marked the organization of THE GREATER ALUMNI 
OF THE BRIGHAM YOUNG UNIVERSITY; it has been a year of organi- 
zation. Locals have been formed in most of the important towns of Utah 
and Idaho and in some of the larger school centers of America. 

Among the locals which have been organized are the following: Chicago, 
New York, Holden, Spanish Fork, St. George, Benjamin, Castle Dale, Provo, 
Pleasant Grove, Payson, Draper, Silver City, Hinckley, Nephi. The spirit 
of loyalty and devotion is manifest everywhere. While the old students 
appreciate what their Alma Mater has done for them, they are looking for- 
ward to a bigger and greater University. 

The official organ of the association, THE ALUMNI ANNOUNCER has 
been issued every month to all whose names and addresses could be secured.

The increasing membership in the Division of Graduate work signifies 
distinct development in the opportunites offered by the institution and a con- 
fidence in its standards. In addition to those who have successfully fulfilled 
the requirements for graduation, there are twenty-six students who are at 
present doing graduate work. The summer sessions draw even larger num- 
bers of advanced students to the university, and we look to the future for a 
great expansion in this field. Graduate credit was obtained by approximately 
seventy-five students during the two sessions of the 1922-'23 term.

We are the Juniors. This year we accomplished 
all that tradition required of us and more. We 
have done our utmost to enjoy ourselves and to add 
to the spirit and prestige of our Alma Mater. 

Among our noteworthy accomplishments of the 
year is the winning of the basketball and debating 
championships, the presentation of a clever junior 
vodie and the annual promenade. 

The Junior Prom of 1924 was not only a joyous 
reality but remains a happy memory of rhythm, 
color and song. Into a dreamy garden of the orient 
the guests were ushered by little Egyptian maids. 
At once the perfume of incense rising from grotes- 
que burners, the mellow multi-colored lights, masses 
of tropical ferns and the magic well with its crystal 
waters and sacred lotus, shut out all semblance of 
the Oxident. Oriental music enhanced the mistic 
atmosphere and made this unique rendezvous in the 
realm of "King Tut" a supreme success.

Sophomore and Loan Fund Ball are inseparable. 
Every Sophomore class of the B. Y. has, according to 
tradition, this big undertaking as its outstanding activity. 
It is not presuming too much to state that the Loan Fund 
Ball of this year was a complete success financially and 
socially. The spontaneous cooperation that so character- 
izes the class was the real means through which this affair 
was "put over." 

The big work accomplished, social, athletic, and 
mental activities received consideration. A "Kid's" 
party, Weenie Roast, Class Social and a moonlight hike 
with the Frosh comprise the social events. In athletics 
and forensics the Sophs were well represented, taking an 
active part in the inter-class series.

Last fall the Freshman class, which was the result of a 
blending of the "conglomerate" that came from all corners of 
this western part of civilization, met and organized a class — 
for it had been taught in high school that organization is the 
fundamenal of success. The Freshmen meant to be successful. 

The first feat which proved their merit ocurred one night, 
in North Park where all greenlings showed the Student Body 
by outbursts, supported by the lungs, that they were of and for 
the B. Y. U. They won the yelling contest by practice and co- 
operaion. A silver loving cup was presented them by "Dutch" 
and "Jiggs." 

The respect and envy of all the students of the school was 
obtained when the Freshies won the cross country run through 
the excellent record of Richards. Of course this led to a slight 
indulgence of turkey which was enjoyed by every Freshie. 

Who could forget the day when the "chlorophyll bunch" 
put over one of the best Freshie days in the history of the 
school. The day's program was introduced by the Freshie Y 
News which was edited by the Freshman class. The chapel 
program, and dance were just as successful. Every contest 
during the day, but one, was won by the "youngsters." 

1923-1924 was a banner year in that the Freshman class 
was the largest ever registered in the history of the B. Y. U. 
The Frosh made it a banner year for the Student Body by 
furnishing lively men for inter-collegiate debating, basket ball 
and swimming. In all college activities it would not be doing 
what George Washington is well known for not doing, when 
we say that the Freshman class has furnished and developed 
leaders that the school in future years will be proud of.

The Secondary Training School 

The Secondary Training School of the Brigham, Young University is a 
dual purpose institution. First it offers an excellent opportunity for mature 
students to attend High School without the usual embarrassment which they 
1 eel when thrown into close competitive association with younger boys and 
girls. The courses of study are superior due to close co-operation with the 
college and the library facilities are vastly more extensive and superior to 
anything the average high school has to offer. 


The second group directly benefiting from the Secondary Training 
School is the large number of college students preparing to teach in the pub- 
lic high schools. These students get the theory in their classes. The Sec- 
ondary Training School is their laboratory. Their work is supervised by a 
fine corps of experts and this supervision keeps the teaching power of be- 
ginners on a high plane of efficiency.

A. Rex Johnson, President 

Student Body Government 

The close combination of scholarship and campus 
activities results in real college success. Toward a 
realization of this ideal the members of the Student 
Body Council have directed their whole effort during 
the past year. They have manifest the highest type 
of cooperation in an effort to make available the 
largest possible number of campus activities to sup- 
plement the academic life of the institution, and in 
response to these opportunities the support of the 
student body as a whole has been most unusual. Close 
contact between the various members of the council 
has been maintained, and there has been developed 
during the year, as a complementary unit, the All- 

Presidents Club, composed of the presidents of all 
campus organizations. This organization has resulted 
in tying more closely the smaller groups with the 
larger whole. As a result of the endeavors of these 
central controls there have been inaugurated on the 
campus a number of new and stimulating features. 

In short, the Student Body Council has been able 
to dispose of its routine duties in the way of adjusting 
political differences and controlling the activities of 
the individuals and in addition projected a vigorous 
program for the whole group. This concerted effort 
has resulted in a distinct widening of the student body 
sphere of service.

The purpose of the Associated Women Students organization at the 
B. Y. U. is to train for leadership and initiative among the women of the 
University; to further in every way the spirit of unity and democracy in 
student body life; to increase in its members a sense of responsibility toward 
each other and to be a medium by which the social standards of the Univer- 
sity can be kept high. 

The organization came into being in 1922-'23 when the women students 
became affiliated with the National Associated Women Students Organization 
Delegates attended the Western convention held at Salt Lake City in the fall 
and the first president, Anna Marie Eggertson represented our organization 
at the National Conference at Columbus, Ohio, in May, 1923. 

Two delegates, President Laura Gardner and Gladys Watson, were our 
delegates attending the Western conference of Associated Women Students, 
held at Tucson, Arizona, in April of this year. 

One of the prominent social activities of the organization for 1924 was 
the Girl's Banquet given in Hotel Roberts February 23. Here originality 
and talent combined to make the function one of distinction. The Annual 
Girls Day was also successfully conducted by this organization to the con- 
clusion that the feminine portion of the institution in no means lacks in- 
genuity and administrative ability. 

Hereafter the Student Body vice-president will automatically become 
president of the organization, and with a corps of officers under her will work 
in connection with the Student Council.

Public Service Bureau 

In developing Leadership the students must he given the opportunity to 
appear hefore the public. The function of the Public Service Bureau is to 
give the schools, wards and organizations of this community programs of 
merit and better entertainment, and to afford an opportunity for the talented 
students of the school to grow in their art by public presentation. 

This year hundreds of calls have been answered by hundreds of the 
trained of the institution. Programs in which one to ten students have par- 
ticipated have been sent to every possible function. 

Royden Dangerfield, second vice-president of the Student Body and di- 
rector of the Public Service Bureau, has guided this organization through 
its fourth successful year. He has arranged the programs and furnished 
the speakers. His co-workers, who have made every effort to further this 
function in leadership, are: Nell Clark, director of dramatics and dancing; 
Mark Allen, director of vocal music; Harlen M. Adams, director of instru- 
mental music.

The school year 1923-24 marks the third year that 
THE Y NEWS has functioned as the official news- 
paper of the B. Y. U. Student Body. 

Previous to the fall of 1921 the WHITE and BLUE 
was the newspaper, literary magazine, and comic 
sheet for the school. At this time through the efforts 
of Editor A. Glenn Hubbard, the student body news- 
paper became known as THE Y NEWS and the 
WHITE and BLUE became a purely literary mag- 

With the exception of one unsuccessful attempt to 
make the NEWS a five column semi-weekly, it has 
always been a seven column paper issued every Wed- 
nesday of the school year. 

Briant L. Decker, Editor 

The editorial staff, averaging fifteen members, is 
chosen by competition. The business staff, composed 
usually of four members, has done exceptional work 
in making the NEWS a success financially. 

To carefully record the news of the university and 
to assist in every possible way in retaining the old 
"Y" spirit among the students, has been the policy of 
the editors. The NEWS is only one of the many units 
that are working for a greater university. 

As the school grows the NEWS will also take on 
larger and better proportions and as this comes about 
it is the wish of the students that it will always stand 
whole-heartedly for a united student body.

Debating at the "Y" 

Debating is a major sport at the B. Y. U. The 
school forensic calendar contains a large portion of 
inter-collegiate and inter-class debates. These de- 
bates are conducted by the Student Body under the 
auspices of the Debating Council. The members of 
this council are Professors Christian Jensen, Chair- 
man, John C. Swenson, T. Earl Pardoe, Wm. J. Snow, 
and Elmer I. Miller. 

A new policy has been adopted by the forensic de- 
partment this year. In the past a few men have 
represented the University in all inter-collegiate 
forensic contests. This year the policy has been 
instituted of giving more individuals the opportunity 

of competing in intercollegiate contests, and of in- 
creasing the number of contests. The University this 
year, was represented by a squad of eleven individuals 
in five inter-collegiate debates. 

The debating program for the past year has been 
very successful. The season opened with the inter- 
class series; each class entering two teams. The tra- 
ditional tri-angle debate, the feature event of our 
debating program, was the next in line. Thes? de- 
bates were followed by the interstate debates with 
U. of Redlands, U. of Wyoming, and the I . of South- 
ern California, all of which were held on our own

U. A. C. vs. B. Y. U. at Provo 

( oung 

U., Utah U., and the U. A. C. met 


annual state triangle debates on January 25 last. The 
debate between the A. C. negative and the B. Y. U. 
affirmative teams at Provo was the last feature of the 
third annual Leadership Week. In this debate the 
A. C. men were successful in convincing all three 
judges to the soundness of their case. 

The B. Y. U. was represented by Miss Helen Hinck- 
ley, Mr. Royden Dangerfield, and Mr. Carlyle E. 
Maw. Messrs. Milton Merrill, Verel Fry, and Fran- 
cis Wilcox upheld the negative case for the Aggies. 
The chairman for the occasion was Reverend Charles 
McCoard of Provo. The judges were: W. M. McCrsa, 

Royden Dangerfield 

Helen Hinckley 

L. B. Weight, and G. A. Iverson, all judges of the 
Third Judicial district of Salt Lake City. 

The question debated was "Resolved, that the 
United States should immediately grant independence 
to the Phillipine Islands on substantially the same 
basis as that enjoyed by Cuba." 

The B. Y. U. team upheld the affirmative side of 
the case. Miss Hinckley as first speaker, pointed out 
that conditions in the islands needed attention and 
that a plan of government such as Cuba had would 
be practicable in the Phillipine Islands. Mr. Danger- 
field, as second speaker, pointed out how it would be 
an advantage to both the Filipinos and the Americans. 
Mr. Maw in the last affirmative speech showed how 
the proposed step was the logical one and how we 
were morally obligated to grant it to the Filipinos. 

The A. C. negative presented rather an unusual 
case; — a case not exactly anticipated. The first 
speaker, Mr. Merrill, argued for complete indepen- 
dence when we did give them independence. The 
other speakers, Messrs. Fry and Wilcox, pointed out 
that the proposed plan was not the plan for the 
Phillipine Islands and that the people of the islands 
were not ready for any such plan. 

The rebuttals were a battle royal. The affirmative 
came back with straight and clear answers to the 
negative objections, but the negative were able to hold 
the validity of their arguments before the judges. 

The debate was one of the most interesting and 
closest that has been held here for some time. The 
unanimous decision of the judges was a surprise to

Sherman Christensen 

The B. Y. U. negative team met defeat at the 
hands of the U. of U. affirmative team at Salt 
Lake City. The decision was two for Utah, one for 
Young. The debate was held in the afternoon in 
Barrett hall as the opening game of the intercol- 
legiate basketball series between th U. of U. and 
the B. Y. U. conflicted with an evening affair. Sup- 
porters of both teams filled the hall to capacity. 

The debate was close and interesting, the audi- 
ence being in doubt until the very last minute, and 
then the case was left to the judges who decided 
in favor of the University arguers. 

Messrs. Sherman Christensen, Orvel Hafen, and 
Udell Jensen represented the B. Y. U. 
The chairman for the occasion was Dr. A. L. 
Neff. The judges were C. N. Jensen, G. N. Child, 
and Nephi L. Morris. 

The question debated was the same as used in the 
other triangle debates. Resolved, that the United 
States should immediately grant independence to 
the Phillipine Islands on substantially the same 
basis as that enjoyed by Cuba. 

The affirmative argued that we were morally 
obligated to grant independence to the Filipinos. 
That there was a stable government in the islands — 
the condition the Jones law required before we 
granted independence. That the people of the 
islands were ready for independence under the pro- 
posed Cuban plan. 

The negative maintained ( 1 ) that the Filipinos 

were not prepared for the proposed change, (2) 
that our experience in Cuba did not justify such a 
change, ( 3 ) that the present plan was advantageous 
to both parties. They further contended that by 
changing the government would be giving them a 
worse form than they now had. 

The rebuttals were centered around whether 
or not the plan proposed would help out the condi- 
tions in the islands . The affirmative contended the 
Filipinos needed the change in order to give the 
people of the islands more privileges under self- 
government. The negative maintained that under 
the present plan the desired end would be attained

U. of Wyoming vs. B.Y.U. at Provo 

The first debate between the Young University and the 
University of Wyoming was won by Wyoming, all three 
judges concuring. The debate was held in College Hall 
Friday, April 1th. 

Drue Cooper and Sherman Christensen defended the 
negative case for the B. Y. U. Messrs. Ralph Conwell 
and Herbert Woodman upheld the affirmative side for 
the University of Wyoming. 

The question debated was: Resolved, that the United 
States should enter into the World Court of International 
Justice under the Harding-Hughes reservations. The 
judges of the debate were: Judge G. A. Iverson, Judge 
Ephraim Hansen, and Judge Josuha Greenwood. Supt. 
H. A. Dixon acted as chairman 

The debate was of the h 

Heber Rasband

hest order. The arguments 
were clear and concise and were presented in and effeciive 
manner by both teams. The debate was much closer 
then the decision would indicate, many disagreeing with 
the decision of the judges. 

U. of Redlands vs. B. Y. U. at Provo 

Young's first debating victory this year came when 
Mr. Heber Rasband and M. Wilford Richards, represent- 
ing the B. Y. I ., defeated Mr. J. Russell Andrews and 
'.•„ | Mr. Wayne Orton. representing the U. of Redlands, by a 

_.i ' : ""-ft two to one decision. The debate was held in College 

tk Vj': Hall Monday, March 24th. 

The question debated was. Resolved, that Congress 
should have the power to nullify decisions of the Su- 
preme Court by reenacting laws declared unconstitu- 
tional. The judges of the debate were: C. N. Jensen, G. 
N. Childs, and K. K. Stephenson all of Salt Lake City. 
Mr. George W. Worthen acted as chairman. 

The Redlands debaters presented a very excellent case. 
The audience was very much in doubt as to just which 
team would receive the judges' decision. 

The negative case, upheld by the Y men, was very 
well worked out. The first speaker, Mr. Rasband showed 
that the power to nullify laws has not been usurped by 
the Supreme Court, because it was understood when the 
Constitution was framed. The second speaker, Mr. Rich- 
ards, showed that the present system has worked succes- 
sfully for one hundred and thirty-five years: and that the 
proposed plan had no consistent basis.

U of S. Calif, vs. B. Y. U. at Provo 

Juamta Pulsipher 

The Young debaters defeated their old forensic 
rivals, the University of Southern California, in de- 
bate on the local rostrum Thursday evening, April 3. 
The debate was the second of the series, the first beini 
held in California last year, with California as win- 
ner. Again the home team won, this time however, 
the winners being representatives of the "Y." 

The affirmative was upheld by the B. \. team, 
composed of Mrs. Jaunita Pulsipher and Mr. Walter 
E. Clark. The University of Southern California 
team, Messrs. William Barber and Bernard C. Brenan, 
defended the negative side of the question. 
The question debated was: "Resolved, that the United States should enter the 
World Court of International Justice under the Harding-Hughes reservations." 

The debate was well handled by the participants. Both teams presented their 
respective cases in an excellent style. 

The principal arguments of the B. Y. U. team may be summed up as follows: 
We want such a court because it is needed, it will work, and it will prove beneficial 
to the world. It will work because it is the result of a slow evolution of social 
forces. Recent combat and present day problems make the use of such a court im- 
perative today, and the court which has been suggested is the combination of all the 
best principles which international justice and jurisprudence has yet devised. The 
court will work because it has already worked in some important cases and right at 
this time many other nations are preparing to use it. Our joining will be beneficial 
to us and the world because all nations being inter- 
dependent, world cooperation is necessary. If the 
United States joins, it will assure perpetuation of the 
court and give us an opportunity of assisting to shape 
its future policies. 

The negative endeavored to prove that the court 
isn't properly organized, it isn't working, joining it 
means allowing foreign powers to settle our domestic 
problems and arbitration is better suited to present 
day needs. The second negative speaker pictured 
the judges of the court opening the Panama Canal as 
they did the Kiel in Germany. Arbitration is better 
because it is more flexible, will better meet today's 
problems and has already proved itself capable of 
solving grave international problems.

Interclass Debating Series 

Juniors and Seniors split honors in the Interclass Debates. The Junior Affirma- 
tive team consisting of Juanita Pulsipher and Carlyle E. Maw, and the Senior Affir- 
mative team composed of Elsie Johnson and Helen Hinckley, tied for first honors. 
The series was left a tie as the Intercollegiate debates conflicted with further debates. 

The qusetion for the series was similar to that used for the intercollegiate con- 
tests. In this way the series proved valuable in bringing out the school's debating 
material. The outline below illustrates the manner in which the debates were held.

Our Coaching Staff 

Director E. L. Roberts stands out pre- 
eminently as one of the greatest coaches 
of the western country. Clean sportsman- 
ship in competitive athletics is the stand- 
ard for which Roberts has striven in his 
position as physical director of the "Y." 
Athletes should be athletes through love 
of the sports, rather than any remunera- 
tion, is Roberts' ideal. "Coach"' has done 
much toward elevating the standards ot 
athletics in the B. Y. I .. and his persistent, 
earnest efforts have been for a greater B. 
Y. L . and a whole-hearted "Y" spirit in 
every department of its activity. 

E. L. Roberts 
Director of Physical Education 

Coach Twitchell's three years of work 
at the "Y" have been marked by a great 
expansion of the athletic department. At 
heart Twitchell stands as one of the best 
football coaches of this country. His ex- 
cellent work in placing the "Y" on a con- 
ference map within two years has surprised 
experienced critics of the gridiron game. 
Coach believes that if a man wishes any- 
thing the easiest way to get it is to per- 
sistently work for the thing he desires. 
This has animated the coach's department 
and enabled him to build a strong foot- 
ball team, win two basketball champion- 
ships and place die "Y" on an equal basis 
in competitive sports with the other big 
universities. His three years of work have 
been exceedingly successful for the "Y" 
and proves the real worth of the Coach.

Graduate Mgr. Athletics 

Athletics at the B. Y. U. this season have been 
highly successful. The athletic manager's position 
was changed from a student body office to a salaried 
graduate manager. George Fox was appointed grad- 
uate manager and devoted much time toward making 
a successful season. 

The "Y" played its second year of Rocky Mountain 
Conference Footfall this season. The football, 
through unswerving loyalty and hard work brought 
continued laurels to the "Y" camp. Two weeks after 
school began the Cougar machine had humbled the 
Montana Bobcats. Later on it held the famous Colo- 
rado Aggie team to a meager score. A number of 
Utah fans were much discomfited when the "Y" 
easily held the famed Utes to two touchdowns and a 
dropkick. At Colorado Springs the pluck and sheer 

grit of the "Y" warriors excited the admiration of 
everyone. The major sport for 1923-24 was indeed 
successful and is another story of what "Y" spirit can 

In basketball the Cougars excelled as in no other 
art. Rocky Mountain Champions, experienced hoop 
artists they were indeed. 

They won seven of eight inter-state collegiate games, 
three of five practice games and two out of three game 
series for the Rocky Mountain Championship. A re- 
cord truly fitting a championship team! The win- 
ning of the Rocky Mountain Championship is one of 
the greatest feats accomplished for many seasons, by 
a Utah school.

In the minor sports, Brigham Young University Athletes were not lacking. By 
winning the Inter-State Wrestling Contest the Cougars retained for the second year 
the State Championship of the mat game. 

Swimming, though handicapped by not owning their own pool was successful, the 
"Y" paddlers taking second place in the inter-collegiate "duck" race. 

As this book goes to press the "Y" has just been defeated by the Utah tennis men 
in a closely contested battle. The "Y" narrowly lost the two doubles set and one 
singles to the Crimson racqueteers. The remainder of the season will be anv school's 
title until the finish match. 

Chances for a track pennant looms large at the B. Y. U. At time of printing 
there are about fifty men training persistently in order to place the B. Y. U. team 
in the lead. Utah's team excels perhaps, in the sprints while U. A. C. has strong men 
in one or two field events. The B. Y. U. is placing an evenly balanced team in the field. 
The weights should be garnered bv the Church school and also many track events. 
The inter-school meet between the letter men and non-letter men will be an index 
to the "Y's" chances for another state pennant. 

Other activities, such as the club and class series of Basketball have brought 
athletics closer to the individual student and played an important part in making 
athletics at the "Y" successful.

B. Y. U., 16; Montana, 15. 

The B. Y. U. began its second year of conference football determined to let the 
world know that the "Y" had a team to be feared. 

Coaches Roberts and Twitchell faced the problem of building up a team within 
two weeks after school had started. The problem was solved through long practices 
and a strenuous training. Two weeks after the beginning of school the Cougar foot- 
ball machine was pronounced ready to meet Romney's famous Montana Bobcats 
who journeyed south to meet the Cougars in their lair. 

Before an enthusiastic crowd of "Y" supporters and spectators the Blue Cougars 
ushered in the second football season of the B. Y. U. It was a perfect machine that 
met and humbled the Bobcats. Cougar superiority in holding the line and a fast 
backfield explains the fact that Romney traveled homeward with his team holding 
the short end of a 16 to 15 score.

The week after the Cougar machine had humbled the Montana Bobcats, the B. Y. 
U. football team journeyed to Fort Collins. The husky Colorado Farmers, exultant 
over a previous battle, in which they held Chicago University's Maroons to a ten 
point score, prepared for an easy victory over Young's infant warriors. Carrying 
the "Y's" indomitable fight spirit with them Coach Twitchell's proteges entered the 
battle with a determination to fight to the utmost. 

Before the game had progressed long, the Farmers realized they were fighting a 
real conference team. The Blue line held consistently against the varied attacks of 
the experienced Aggie force. Only twice did the Hughes' machine succeed in push- 
ing the ball over the line and then only after a battle which the spectators watched 
with awe. Not content with holding C. A. C. to a two touchdown game, the "Y" 
Cougars surprised the conference and upset the "dope" careful critics had prepared, 
by carrying the pigskin through the thick of battle for a touchdown and a score on 
the famed Aggie team.

COLORADO U., 41; B. Y. U., 

Traveling from Fort Collins to Boulder and meeting the two strongest conference 
teams within one week was one of the "Y,s" many problems. It was a badly bruised 
and crippled machine which met the Boulderites on the following Saturday. 

The conference Champions entered the game fresh and full of battle. A con- 
centrated attack upon Dixon caused his removal early in the game and thus weakened 
the "Y's" chances. A bewildering system of aerial attacks took the Cougars with 
surprise. The entire game was played on forward passes. The "Y" eleven bruised 
and crippled were smothered with the accurate passing of the Champions and unable 
to stave off a defeat of 41 points.

The biggest feature of the Cougar season was the battle with Utah's Crimson crew. 
Enthusiasm and football spirit predominated at the "Y" for days. Thursday preced- 
ing the game a gigantic rally prepared the "Y" warriors for the battle on the B. Y. 
U. field. Friday the Utah student body sent a few representatives to Provo to warn 
the "Y" of Utah's spirit. 

The largest crowd ever seen at Provo for football, witnessed the battle for pigskin honor. 

The enthusiasm of the entire "Y" student body proved that the Cougar eleven did not lack 

Before the first half was over spectators began to realize that the Cougar infants were hard to 
defeat. The half was one long-to-be-remembered battle and ended with score 9-0 for Utah. 

The second half began with an end run for Utah which ended the game as far as the score was 
concerned. Utah gained a touchdown making the score 15-0. The remainder of the tussel dis- 
played the fact that the erstwhile champions could make no additional score. Time after time 
Utah pushed the ball within scoring distance only to be blocked by the "Y" line which held as a 
wall, and the game ended with the discomforted champions returning home surprised and full 
of dismay that the B. Y. U. had held Tommy Fitzpatrick's eleven to such a meager score.

The "Y" eleven met the Western State College of Gunnison, Colorado in a non- 
conference game. 

The game resulted in a complete victory for the "Y" team. The Teachers, out- 
weighed in all departments had a hard time bucking the stone wall of the Blue and 
White warriors. The Western State College fought gloriously but superior playing 
and the heavy line bucks of the "Y" triumphed. Coach TwitchelPs men succeeded 
in rolling up a valiant 19 point score while holding the State College scoreless thru 
the four playing periods. 

The visitors resorted to many forward passes in an effort to avoid defeat. The 
passing was on the whole, inaccurate and in most cases easily anticipated and 
blocked by the Cougars. The score is the story of the game, "Y" 19, Western State 
College, 0.

The game with Romney's Farmers proved to be disastrous to the "Y." The 
Cougars left Provo accompanied by a large number of B. Y. U. supporters. 

The "Y" suffered an off day, playing far below Cougar standards. The wily 
Floyd Thomas successfully evaded "Y" tacklers in open runs, while the husky line 
plunger Knowles succeeded in breaking down the B. Y. U. defensive line. 

The Logan gridiron warriors proved worthy foemen, and succeeded in winning

The B. Y. U. football eleven played the last game of the Football season at 
Colorado Springs. The battle was staged on the Turkey Feast day. The "Y" team 
was especially determined to finish its second conference year with a real scrap. 

Before the Colorado Tigers awoke the "Y" had scored a touchdown. The Tigers 
now began an earnest fight and though the score was largely in their favor the "Y" 
line held the opponents for first down's a number of times. The score was made 
on freak forward passes and skillful playing. Director Meade of C. C. athletics, 
after watching the game stated that the Cougars had one of the best trained lines in 
the conference. Satisfied that the game was worthy of B. Y. U. ideals the team 
returned home full of enthusiasm for the "Y's" football future.

The infant team for the B. Y. U. proved itself to be worthy of the "Y" in several 
ways this season. The coaches spent practically all of their time with the Varsity 
eleven and as a result the yearling team suffered much. 

Undaunted, however, they reported and practiced each night and provided some 
keen work for the Varsity team. They also, under the coaching of graduate manager 
Fox, made a trip southward where they humbled the Payson High School. Later on 
in the season they invaded Snow Normal Academy and returned victorious. 

The big state game was lost to the "U" Frosh who were well coached for the 
fray. On the whole, the season was successful and served to initiate several new 
men who will probably wear the big Varsity "Y" next season.

The Colorado College Games and the Rocky Mountain 
Conference Champion Team 

The biggest feat of the entire year was the capture of the Rocky Mountain Con- 
ference Championship title by the B. Y. U. Colorado College, three years State 
Champions of Colorado, sent the Cougar five a challenge to meet the Utah Champs 
in a three game series to decide the final resting place of the Rocky Mountain title. 
The Cougar Coaches accepted the challenge and prepared to battle the Tigers on the 
Provo floor. 

It was Cougar vs. Tiger in three great battles, the stronger was to hold and have 
the coveted championship. The battles were staged in the "Y" gym, Monday, Tues- 
day and Wednesday, March 10, 11, 12. The day of the big event Captain Stewart 
became a victim of the mumps and the Cougars were forced to enter the game handi- 
capped by the loss of one of the mainstays of their winning combination. A new 
group was tried out Monday night before a crowded gyymnasium. The Tigers were 
victorious, due undoubtedly to the new type of playing and the "Y" handicap with 
a new combination. The score Monday was: B. Y. U., 38; Colorado College, 40. 

The Cougars determined, overnight to score a come back Tuesday evening, and 
the game was a complete victory for the "Y" forces. The scorers worked efficiently, 
the guards became skillful at blocking the Tiger's varied attacks, and as a result the 
second game of the big series left the "Y" one victory, Colorado one. The score 
was: B. Y. U., 40; Colorado College, 38. 

The big battle for honors was left for Wednesday. Students filled the "Y" gym 
to overflowing. Both teams entered the game determined, to do or die. The Cougar 
quintet maintained a lead over the opponents during the entire game. The score 
left no doubt as to who were the superior hoopsters. Twice had the "Y" defeated 
the Tigers. The third night the score read: Colorado College. 25: B. Y. U., 32. 

Defeating the Colorado quintet and winning the title to the R. M. C. was but 
one of the features accomplished by this year's basketball artists. Out of a total 
of sixteen games played this season the "Y" was victorious in thirteen of the battles.

All State Guard 


The race for the Utah State pennant began at 
the Utah gymnasium, January 25, 1924. Tommy 
Fitzpatrick's quintet began the game confident of 
easy victory. Within a short few minutes of play 
Utah scored a foul pitch while the "Y" machine 
had easily rolled up sixteen points. From this time 
on the outcome was not in danger, the easily scor- 
ing Cougar five scored twenty-nine against their 
opponents' eleven by the close of the first half. 

The second half seemed but to prove further the 
supremacy of the B. Y. U. five. Utah's scoring 
machine was woefully inaccurate and had but few 
set ups due to the superior guarding of the "Y." 
The B. Y. U. aggregation seemed to gain the ball 
easily and the accurate forward passing always 
ended with another score. Just at the close of the 
second half Roberts substituted for all the first 
line men except Howard. With the entrance of 
new men Utah tried hard to stave off defeat but 
were held to the score of 21 for Utah, 38 for 
the "Y." 


The game played Saturday had a very different 
setting. In the Deseret gym before a multitude of 
"Y" students, accompanied by the band, the Cou- 
gars prepared to meet the Crimson Utes. The 
Utah five, undaunted by previous defeat were de- 
termined to battle as never before in order to 
humble the big Blue Five. 

The game started with a tremendous rush from 
Utah which left the "Y" a few points behind. The 
rush, however, was soon blocked by the "Y," who 
slowly overtook Utah's lead and then continued to 
put a safe margin between the two scores which 
was easily maintained throughout. 

In the second half all attempts at a Utah rally 
failed, the "Y" quintet repeating some accurate 
scoring and passing which left the Ute five in a 
stage of bewilderment. "Rags," the flashy center, 
was replaced by Romney, who was forced to play 
with an injured hand. Still the "Y" led easily 
until the final shot left the spectators in no serious 
doubt as to the superiority of the two teams. Score: 
Utah, 26; B. Y. U., 36.

A. C. U. vs. B. Y. U., AT PROVO 

Grant Incersoll 

In the Northland the Logan Farmers worked 
feverishly all season determined that the Cougars 
should not pass. They invaded the Cougar 
lair with the best quintet Romney has been able 
to produce for many years. They came from the 
North with a determination to win. Friday's game 
witnessed the only defeat the Cougars suffered in 
their march on the State pennant. The Farmers' 
accurate shooting is the story of the first half. 
B. Y. U., 15; A. C. U., 20. 

During the second half the "Y" 
hoopsters fought valiantly and 
several times were on the winning 
end of the score, but luck was 
against them and their few set ups 
were too closely guarded to give 
them a chance at the hoop. When 
the whistle closed the game the 
score stood, A. C. U., 43; B. Y. 
U., 37.

Golden Romney 


Saturday night did not see a 
repetition of the Farmer victory. 
"Y" students crammed the rafters 
to aid the Cougar quintet. The 
"Y" five entered the game with 
the thought in mind that only 
brings a victory. The guards close- 
ly watched and held the Aggie to 
a minimum score while Young's scoring "three' 
passed the ball far over the heads of the bewil 
dered Aggie crew. It was a different team than 
the one which was defeated the evening before 
"Y" superiority on the guard line, "Y" superiority 
in passing and shooting, "Y" superiority predom 
inating the game left the results in favor of the 
rejuvenated five, and Romney 's crew went home 
holding the short end of a 21 to 38 score.

U. OF U. vs. B. Y. U, AT PROVO 


Utah's invasion of Provo was a much heralded 
event. Revenge being uppermost in their mind 
they came to Provo in no defeat-taking mood. 
Their famed center, Collett, was back in the hoop 
game and an easy defeat of the "Y" had been much 
talked of. For a few minutes after the game started, 
it appeared that a close battle would be witnessed 
both sides passed furiously but were unable to 
score. The Cougars finally caged a basket which 
started them out on a long lead which Utah never 
menaced. The bad luck of Utah's scorers proved 
that the Cougar guards were al- 
lowing them but slight chance at 
a basket. The referee's gun clos- 
ing the game left the score read- 
ing Utah 22, B. Y. U., 36. An- 
other laurel for Young superior- 
ity; and the "Y" another step 
nearer the state pennant!

B. Y. U. vs. U. OF U. 

Saturday, Utah invaded Provo 
with the Students' band, and a 
large number of the Student Body. 
Utah was determined to wrest one 
game from the mighty Young 
quintet. The Utes fought and 
fought hard but always was the 
Cougar machine ready; blocking, 
playing, securing the ball, and 
consistently scoring. The end of 
the first half Utah 14, B. Y. 17, 
shows the fight to have been a 
real battle. 
The second half Utah recovered somewhat and 
the flashy Collett worked hard but Young's center, 
"Rags," proved to be a no mean artist at the game. 
Utah went down gloriously fighting to a superior 
five who had become expert at the hoop game and 
were not to be stopped in their march for the State 
pennant. The score was: Utah, 32; B. Y. U, 34.

A. C. U. vs. B. Y. U., LOGAN SERIES 

Utah Aggies hold a "jinx" over the B. Y. U. 
For seven straight seasons this spell has been suc- 
cessful. With state pennants within our grasp the 
"jinx" of Logan has entered in and stopped the 
"Y" advance. This year with one victory needed 
to clinch our already near Championship the 
Cougars faced the northern "jinx," and Logan 
was prepared. Critics thought that it was impos- 
sible for the B. Y. U. to gain a basketball victory 
in Logan. It was with firm step, though, that 
Twitchell's five journeyed north determined to win 
one of the two game series. 
Imagine the consternation of the 
Farmers when Young's invincible 
scoring machine crept into the 
lead which it easily maintained 
during the entire period. Imagine 
the great "bedlam" of joy that 
shook the "Y" when they received 
news of the Farmer defeat at the 
score of 30, B. Y. U.; 27, U. A. C. 

A new championship team had 
at last invaded the Farmer lair 
and broken the mighty "jinks" 
of the Loganites. 



Clarence Knudsen 


While fans were still talking it 
over, while students and B. Y. U. 
supporters rejoiced at the win- 
ning of the State pennant the Cou- 
gar five again humiliated Rom- 
ney's quintet. Beginning the game 
with second string men, the "Y" 
aggregation was smothered by the 
Aggies' spirited comeback. At the 
beginning of the second period the "Y" main 
team entered the fray and soon the short gap in the 
score closed up while a new one with State Cham- 
ions in lead, opened. It had never been done be- 
fore, this double victory in the Aggie camp, yet 
here were five champions who made the feat an 
actual fact, and who returned to the "Y" with a 
new State Basketball pennant safely tucked away 
for the 1924 season. 

The score was: A. C. U, 25; B. Y. U., 32.

Club Series Champions 


The initiating of the the club series of basketball into the campus sports was a 
novel feature of the season. Each club upon the campus furnished a team com- 
posed from the club membership. This made the club series extensive in nature 
for no less than 10 clubs participated. The club teams then engaged in a series of 
games each Tuesday and Thursday, in which each club met each other one during the 
series. Much good material was brought to the front throughout the series enabling 
many floor artists to come before the coaches, who otherwise were unable to devote 
their time to the direction of the entire group. The series was a decided success. 
The Dixie club being the winners, are to be heartily commended on the efforts which 
have enabled them to successfully defeat every other organization team on the campus.

Junior Class, 1925 

The Junior class has performed a remarkable feat this season. Entering the 
"Y" three years ago it was successful in carrying away the class championship. A 
year rolled by and the same class came again as students at the B. Y. U. Once 
again the class series was entered and captured this time by the team of the same 
class, though now Sophomores. As Juniors this class meets and in the class series 
for a third consecutive year is successful in the fray, and the Junior class produces 
a championship team. Another year, as Seniors, they may again emerge victorious 
and have the honor of being class Champions for four consecutive years.

The second dual meet for the B. Y. U. against 
the Crimson crew was a thriller from the shot of 
the first gun until the announcer gave the final 
results of the last event which gave the "\" a two 
point lead. The score was 67 to 69. Many sur- 
prises happened in the meet, not the least was 
Van Luven's speeding across the tape first in the 
I 10 vard run. and the Cougar annexing all three 
place in the event. Another was the capture of

the shot put by the Cougars, Howard taking first 
place. Frosty Richards easily captured the two 
mile run cutting down the state record four sec- 
onds. A real thriller was the final sprint of Homer 
Wakefield winning the mile run bv a bare fraction. 
The final event bringing in the bacon was Utah's 
capture of first place in the javelin, while Hul- 
linger and Christensen taking second and third, 
thus rolled up the necessary score, clinching the 
meet for the Cougars.

Annual Cross Country Run 

The Annual Cross Country Run was entered 
by sixteen men. The scheduled day, Wednesday 
before the Thanksgiving holidays, was ideal for 
such an event. "Dope" was considerably upset 
during the race. A young Frosh athlete, Frosty 
Richards,, shattered the long standing record of 
Wayne Hales, who made the five and two-tenths 
mile in 23 minutes 46 seconds. Running easily 
and with but little effort Richards covered the 
same ground and crossed the tape in 22 minutes

The opening set of the inter-collegiate tennis tournament resulted in victory for 
for the Utah University racquet men. The "Y" put up a splendid fight. And Utah 
only won after one of the most closely contested sets. The "Y" lost both doubles 
and one of the single's contest. With each institution meeting each other twice, the 
inter-collegiate race for racquet honors is still to be determined. The "Y" is pre- 
senting a group of experienced tennis men and will bid strong for state honors. 

In the inter-school tennis tournament the ace racqueteer, Buck Dixon, Rocky 
Mountain Champion, came out victorious after a closely contested tournament.

The B. Y. U. mat men were again successful in winning the State Championship in wrestling. 
Hard work, with little coaching, was the determining factor. The team, captained hy Ardell 
Blackham, successfully captured the State meet by winning first place in the 158 lb. class and 135 
lb. class, and also won a second place draw. Captain Blackham merits much praise for his incessant 
work and enthusiasm. For two years, now, he has retained the state title in the 135 lb. weight 
class. Jesse Hullinger sprang a surprise on the state when he caputred the 158 lb. class in the 
meet. It appears as if the Cougars intend to permanently retain the wrestling title first won a 
year ago when wrestling was introduced as an intercollegiate sport.

Dramatic Art 

The usual growing success of the institution was 
reflected in the ever increasing activity of the Dra- 
matic Art Department. This year saw the finished 
production of two department plays: "Sylvia Runs 
Away" and "The Golden Age"; the annual Student 
Body play: "The Taming of the Shrew"; and many 
one-act plays staged by advanced students of the art. 

Professor T. Earl Pardoe, as director of the depart- 
ment, continued his aims through his work: to give 
good cultural entertainment to the school and the 
community: and to give opportunity for a large num-

ber of students to gain experience in public presenta-

Pardoe, with a number of B. Y. U. students, for the 
Community Service Bureau, in the Provo High School 
Auditorium. The scheduled faculty play was not 
given because of lack of time. 

The stage personnel consisted of Bryant R. Clark, 
departmental and student body manager: Alonzo 
Morley, stage manager; Clarence L. Jensen, prop- 
erties; Leonard Bacon, assistant electrician.

This year saw the first real participation of the 
student body in music. A music manager, chosen 
by the department, was made a regular student body 
officer. George Boyack, in the position this year, 
worked the activity into one of the real functions 
of the school; special mention being made of the 
first competitive opera for which student body 
honors were given. 

Mrs. Florence Jepperson Madsen, head of the de- 
partment, with the aid of the four other professors 
under her. enlarged its scope by the addition of new 
fields of study and broadened its influence by a 
greater participation in community life. The new 
courses have trained students more broadly so that

those advanced in the art are in great demand as 
efficient instructors. 

The "nation-known" band gave many programs 
north of Provo and made its annual spring concert 
tour to the south. The glee clubs were often evident 
in splendid numbers and they entertained in nearby 
communities. The magnificent chorus and the or- 
chestra were always appreciated for their splendid 
and willing service in the school and city. The 
opera, new in the school only through its competi- 
tive introduction, was one of the usual high class 
productions of the year.

Because of its cultural and educational value, the B. Y. U. Symphonic Orchestra 
is a vital factor in our school life, and is much appreciated. The organization of 
192.V24 has been the largest and finest in the history of the school. 

A number of concerts were given in Provo and surrounding communities during 
the year. These entertainments were of high standard, presenting to the people what 
is best in classical, semi-classical and semi-popular music. A new feature was in- 
augurated when the entire group furnished the accompaniment for the school opera, 

This body forms the nucleus for the county Symphonic Orchestra, which is doing 
a great work in fostering good music and musical education. The production of the 
highest quality of music has been the constant aim of the organization.

B. Y. U. Mixed Chorus 

As one of the uplifting organizations of the institution, the General chorus has done its bit 
towards the achievement of high standards. It has risen to the occasion on each demand. Many 
compliments were received for its splendid work during leadership week and high praise was 
given the Opera Chorus work in "Iolanthe." 

Much credit is due the directors of the organization for its success which it achieved, for the 
inspiration they gave was the foundation upon which the chorus was built.

The 1923-24 program of the Mask Club was scholarly and dramatic. Its varied 
nature, combining comedy and tragedy, indeed typified its "mask." The student 
enthusiasts of the club were the stars of the various programs. This unique feature 
fostered club spirit and accounted for the dramatic interest of the one hundred club 

The program of the year included the following: Student Body Novelty Ball, 
-given under the direction of the Mask Club, the Marcellus Smith and company 
musical; an evening of one-act plays given for the Leadership Week guests; and the 
Mask Banquet. For the first time since its organization the club was represented at 
the Drama League Convention at California. 

The activities of the club featured students and advanced students in the dramatic 
art department, read dramas and presented one-act plays to the club members. Fol- 
lowing is the list of the plays that were read this year: 

"Next to Kin," by Charles Klein; read by Ruth Perkins. 

"We are Seven," by Eleanor Gates; read by Lysle Lindsey. 

"The Man From Home," by Booth Tarkington; read by Edmund Evans. 

"An Old Sweetheart of Mine," by Oscar Wilde; read by Ivy Nielson.

B. Y. U. Women 

During the year of 1923-24 the B. Y. U. Women's Organization has functioned 
very successfully in the lives of its members. The programs presented have been on 
works of the World's great artists in music, painting and sculpture. Papers have 
been prepared and read by the members, as well as some of the professional people 
of our school and city: and illustrations of the works of great masters in music, have 
been given by men and women from our own B. Y. School of Music. 

This year there has been an active membership numbering approximately one 
hundred, composed of the wives of the faculty, lady teachers, wives of the members 
of the board, matrons, and women who are, or have been officially connected with the 

The objects of this organization are to foster a spirit of friendliness, to provide 
a means of social intercourse and intellectual advancement, and to promote the in- 
terests and ideals of the school. 

The meetings are held semi-monthly with an occasional evening party where the 
husbands and gentlemen friends join in the entertainment. These meetings have 
been made more homelike and intimate by the privilege of meeting at the homes of 
the members. 

The special activities of the year have been the Faculty Family Party on the B. 
Y. U. Campus, September 15; the Girls' Reception at the home of Mrs. H. G. Mer- 
rill; Reception and Ball to patrons and club ladies of Provo, on New Years Eve; a 
Children's Party conducted by the Training School faculty, and a party and reception 
for all faculty members who have been away and are going away during the year. 

Each year some project has been fostered for the school, so this year the B. Y. U. 
Women decided to give some tangible aid to the Home Economics Department. In 
cooperation with this department the Emma Lucy Gates concert was given and the 
proceeds turned to the department thus named. 

In addition to the social and cultural features, the organization has placed in 
the library a book in memory of each of the following: 

Prof. E. D. Partridge, Aretta Young, Dr. M. P. Henderson, E. A. Morgan, John 
S. Smith, Mrs. Maria W. Poulson and Timothy Baldwin Clark.

Vivien ^McDonald 

A gem from the gem state is fair Vivien, winner of the 
Venus laurels for the year. Charmingly sweet and 
wholly feminine, she knows full well the weight of frown 
or tear, of glances naive or smiles bewitching. 

But Vivien is not vain, for well she knows that beauty 
glows with brighter hues, when kindled from the fires of 
wisdom and of common sense. A creature to be wooed 
and won!

Vida ^roadbent 

"Personal Magnetism" won in the popularity contest. 
Vida is a friend to everyone. She radiates the joy of 
living to all who come near her. She is a student of high 
merit; sensible, thorough, efficient. Human magnetic 
power seems an inborn part of her. She has a charming 
personality, a pleasant smile, a cheery word for every- 

"Who is Vida? What is she 

That all the swains commend her?"

Edmund Evans 

Edmund entertains us! He charms us with Hawaiian 
melodies, reads for us, plays for us, cheers for us and 
laughs for us. "Dutch" is a bit Epicurean but we are 
told that more serious veins are embedded in the strata 
of his make up. He is our popular man for the year.

Play I. Time: From then till yet. 
Scent 1. Place: Museum of Fine Arts. 

In the center of the stage is seen a large painting, draped with crepe and with the 
inscription across the bottom, "The Modern Inferno," by Michael Angelo Lewis. 

As the curtain rises Michael Angelo Lewis and Leonardo DeVinci Bushman are 
discovered criticizing the picture. 

L. D. V. Bushman: And what circle is this friend Michael? 

M. A. Lewis: That, dear Leonardo, is the outer circle, and maybe you don't think 
these fellows wish it were the inner circle. 

L. D. V. Bushman: Why. isn't it hotter there? 

M. A. Lewis: Yes, but these people tried to get into it all their lives and failed, 
they were social aspirants, who were sent here for sins against the "Book." 

L. D. V. Bushman: The "Book"? What book? 

M. A. Lewis: The "Book of Etiquette." dumbell. There is a goof who didn't 
know what conversation to make to his partner at the dinner table. Ha! ha! he 
doesn't get any dinner now. 

L. D. V. Bushman: And who is the woman stewing in the pot of oil? 

M. A. Lewis: That's the wife who foozled the party for her husband's boss. 
Personally. I think that gang of cigarette smokers we saw a couple of circles back 
ain't having half such a helluva time. 

L. D. V. Bushman: And this poor chap being podded and forked by the devil? 

M. A. Lewis: That's a guest who picked up the wrong fork, and the frozen crea- 
ture next to him is the man who said "Please to meetcha" to his sister's best friend 
on whom he so wanted to make a good impression, and that weeping pair over 
there in hot water is the man who was off side when escorting two ladies along the 
street and the man who got half a dozen dates for the same night. 

L. D. V. Bushman: Over there, I know without being told is the poor perplexed 
girl who was brought home from a party by her beau, and didn't know the answer 
to the question, "should she ask him in?" By the way Michael, old dear, that's 
always stumped me too. What is the proper caper? 

M. A. Lewis: Well, what did Lily used to do about you? 

L. D. V. Bushman: Now you're getting personal, let's get the hellouta here.

Brigham Young University, 
September 29. 1923. 

Dear Muggins: 

The deal old school has again 
awakened to action. This prom- 
ises to be the best year yet. 

Two weeks have passed since 
we first greeted the institution 
for the year. They've been an 
exciting two weeks! 

We've had a Student Body 
Mixer, a Handshake, and whoop- 
in' rally, a game and lots of 
other things to keep us busy, 
like lessons, new books and fi- 
nancial figurings in our check 

The B. Y. Rooters staged a 
thrilling rally! I was afraid 
they'd wake up the Bobcats of 
Montana but they must have been 
hibernated securely out there for 
we won our first Rocky Mountain 
Conference Game from them to- 
day with a score of sixteen to 

No more do I have to be called 
"Little Sister." so cease right now. 
Muggins, for I've two dear little 
Freshie sisters whom I'm to keep 
happy. All the girls have been 
affiliated into families now. 

The Freshies must obey the 
back door policy from now on 
and must wear green caps. 
They're fine at cleaning the "Y" 
though. Since its recent clean- 
ing it fairly screams its import- 
ance to the Community. There 
are so many Freshies that I'll 
bet my best reputation they ar- 
rived in carload lots. Harold 
Candland is their president. 

Our Dramatic Art Manager 
has just arrived today. You 
know him. Bryant Clark.

speeches by Dr. Brimhall and 
President Harris. They reviewed 
the dreams and aspirations of the 
"Y." We had a program in Col-

Provo High, and at night a ball. 
Thus we celebrated the found- 

The officers of the A. W. S. 
were elected today. Vida Broad- 
bent is vice-president and head 
of the Little Sister Plan. 

A mighty contest was begun 
here last week when our cheer 
master. Dutch, and his disciple, 
Jiggs, offered a silver cup to the 
noisiest class in school. It's in 
the form of a rally. I mean the 
contest is. 

All the sisters, big .little, short, 
fat. long, healthy, lean, skinny, 
or otherwise, were entertained 
at the home of Dr. M. C. Merrill 
last Thursday. 

I've heard a great deal about 
a seance that the Seniors are 
to have when they find thirteen 
chairs. Sounds kinda spooky, 
eh? But no one else is worried 
so I guess I won't run yet.

Third Seat, Sixth Row, 
Library. November 17. 
Well. Muggins, here I am again: 

We didn't do much socially 
around here last week. Every- 
body mourned the death of Dr. 
Henderson. We need him so. 

This week's work began with 
our battle at Logan on Armistice 
Day. Aggies won 40-0. 

Our angel football star. Bobbie 
Wilkinsen, acquired a ruined 
knee in ball practice the other 
day. Can't play any more. 

Debating has begun in earnest. 

Owen Romney has by long and 
faithul practice acquired polish 
as the hero of the new play. 
"Golden Age." Cess Johnson is 
to be the heroine. 

Mrs. Pardoe read "War Brides'' 
in our Armistice Day Program. 
Oh. it was wonderful! 

The Freshies staged an overall- 
sack apron dance on Wednesday. 
It's reported that they enjoyed 
it as only fresh, budding things 

We're having basket ball class 
series this week. Sounds like 
we're to hear basketball in reality 

Our annual Loan Fund Ball 
went over the top last night to 
add three hundred dollars to our 
life saver fund. 

The Ag. and Home Ec. Clubs 
held a costume party in Ladies' 
Gym the other night. 

Did you notice that 13th on 
the calendar this week? Did it 
bring bad luck? It didn't here. 
It did to some people though. 
Hoping you're the same. 
Fare three well, 
Banyan Betty. 

Midnight. Nov. 24. 
Dere Muggins: 

This is to be brief. 

We welcome the return of 
President Harris from the East. 

Who says we aren't famous! 
Our old Timp tree has been 
placed in the Hall of Fame. 

That's not all. Our band has 
been giving concerts in Salt Lake 

"Golden Age" was a comedy 
with lots of spice.

Dec. 8. Returned. 

Exams! Exams! 
Exams! Exams! Exams! 
Dear Mug: 

I do feel better now they're all 
over. We've finished the greater 
this week and it's almost finished 

The school hasn't done much 
socially but educationally — gee — 
they're swift! Some of us can do 
a whole quarter's work in one 

Yesterday was Frosh Day. They 
wore green, radiated green, were 
green. They gave a clever pro- 
gram in Assembly. The ball in 
the evening was a treat. 

The Freshies unlocked the 
skeleton closet this week. Scandal 
about Student Body Officers 
formed an interesting part of 
their issue in the "Y" News. 

The Girls Volley Ball team 
played the Faculty team yester- 
day. The mightv faculty won 25-

Banyan Betty. 

Beginning the Winter Quarter. 
December 16. 
Dere Muggins. 

This was the week when we 
erased our slates and started 
anew. We've also welcomed 
some new students. 

Last Monday we gave a special 
program for Dr. Brimhall in 
honor of his birthday. He is now 
seventy vears young and one year 

Our debating team has been

in the Domestic Science rooms 
the other night. 

Last night we had the most 
glorious Christmas dance. 

So now you know all that's 
happened. I shall wish you heaps 
upon heaps of Christmas wishes 
and holiday cheer. 

Hoping you're the same, 

Banyan Betty. 

After 2 weeks of glorious 
holidays we return in 1924 
to the B. Y. U. Then with- 
in 2 weeks we recover 
sufficiently to write (with 
many apologies) to our 
friends on Jan. 20. 1924. 
Dear Muggins, 

Accept all my humble apol- 
ogies and enjoy these New Year 

The whole B. Y. must have en- 
joyed the holidays for it took us 
all last week to get over them. 
However we did some interesting 
things around here. 

The Juniors staged a Master 
Vodie in College Hall. It was 
the best that's ever been given 
around here. 

We had a basket ball game 
with the L. D. S. U. and they 

Edmund Evans read "The Man 
from Home." in Mask. Gee! 
Mug. but he's a good reader. 

The Sanpete and Idaho clubs 
had a mis-fit frolic on Saturday. 

Now to this week. — 

Preparations for Leadership 
Week have held first place every- 

Monday we awarded the foot- 
ball fellows their honors for this 
year. Sweaters and blankets were 
given. On Wednesday the foot- 
ball banquet was held at Hotel 
Roberts. Elwood Gledhill was 
elected captain for 1924-25. 

The tryouts have been held for 
the competitive school play. 
Alonzo Morley and Ina Creer 
will play the leading roles in 
"The Taming of the Shrew." 

The Juniors held a Leap Year 
party last night. More fun! 

Friday night the Art Service 
club gave a carnival. Everyone

was costumed. We*ve adopted a 
new saying, "As many colors as 
the color carnival." 

Coach Roberts has been ap- 
pointed a member of the Na- 
tional Collegiate Athletic As- 
sociation and also a member of 
the American Olympic Commit- 
tee. We're surely proud of him. 

Mrs. Merrill has come back to 
school. Seems good to see her 
again after long illness. She 
gave an interesting talk to the 
girls Friday. 

Hoping you're the same, 

Banyan Betty. 

The Sunday after the week 
before. January 27. 
Leader Muggins, 

You wouldn't have recognized 
the dear old B. Y. this week. Two 
thousand visitors swarmed our 
halls and registered as ambitious 

We had interesting lectures on 
most any subject you can name. 
We had lectures in Assembly by 
President Grant, Adam S. Ben- 
nion. Melvin J. Ballard and Oscar 

The boy scouts were prominent 
since they did a kind deed a day 
and wore blue kerchiefs all week. 
Social Leadership classes were 
very interesting. 

And the nursery — O, Mug! I 
wish you could have seen all the 
cute youngsters we took care of 
so their mothers could go to 

Besides the social hours each 
afternoon we had entertainments 
for our guests. Monday night 
a get-acquainted party; Tuesday 
the Band Concert; Wednesday 
an evening of one-act plays and 
Thursday a pageant. 

Friday night we debated the 
A. C. here and the U. in Salt 
Lake. We lost both but we're 
trying to be good losers. 

After the debate the Alumni 
Association held a reception. 

Friday and Saturday we de- 
feated the U. in both basket ball 
games. Friday's score stood 38- 
21; Saturday's 36-26. So that's 
some consolation.

Recovering from stiffness, 
bruises and general activ- 
ity. Saturday. Feb. 1. 
Dere Muggins, 

We've just had the most thril- 
ling hike. The Student Body had 
a mid-winter hike to Vivian Park, 
this week end. We went up 
Friday afternoon and came back 
today. We lived in cabins, 
danced, skied, tobogganed, skat- 
ed, ate — just a glorious round of 

Tuesday and Wednesday we 
played ball with the Colorado 
Teachers. They won the first 
game and we took the second. 

The Frosh are having a danc- 
ing party tonight. 

You know Dr. M. C. Merrill? 
He's leaving this week to go into 
government work in Washington. 
D. C. as Editor of all the Forest- 
ry Publications of the U. S. Dept. 
of Agriculture. We shall surely 
miss him. But sh — Mug. the new- 
Prof, who takes his place is 
young, good-looking and un- 
married! His name is Morris. 
Hurrah, for our side! 

You should see the goats this 
week. Block "Y" fellows all 
dressed up in snowy-white trous- 
ers, panama hats, overcoats and 
galoshes. They've actually made 
a flapper out of Helen Hinkley. 
Another pure girl gone wrong.

and say. Mug, my sus — picions 
were correct! 

The prettiest thing that Provo 
has seen in years came in the 
form of Blossom Time last week

Thursday night the "Y" High 
School put on "The Charm 
School." and charming it was. 
Ruth Clark was leading lady and 
Elton Billings the hero. 

That night the Milliard club

Friday the tryouts for the 
competitive Opera were held. 

The English classes have organ- 
ized a Literary club. 

Interstate debaters chosen this 
week are Clark. Pulsifer. Ras-

The Missionary Club had a 
frolic — well maybe missionaries 
don't frolic but from what I've 
heard it sounded like frolic — in 
the Ladies" Gym last night. 

A terrible catastrophe has fal- 
len the Faculty play. Cupid

sented last week. Alonzo Morley 
was very successful in Taming 
the Shrew who was Ina Crecr.

With the Sun Shining 
On April 11. 
Dear Muggins, 

Our hand returned all sale and 
sound last Saturday. They had 
a very good trip save for the mud 
they encountered. We're surely 
proud of them.

We have a May Queen. We have 
also a concert, a program and a

ner. It's more fun. Muggins. 
Then at night we have a ball. 
It's always a gala event and every 
one goes.

sixth. There are al- 

ways a great number of alumni 
here, there is usually an alumni 

The Banyans will be out about 
May twenty-fourth. Then we'll

Hoping you're the same. 

Banyan Betty.
