Golden Anniversary 






In this our Semi-Centennial year, we 
have attempted to link the past with the 
present in this the Golden Anniversary 
Edition of the Banyan. The coming back 
of former students and the renewing of 
old memories have turned our view rev- 
erently to the past. We pause this year in 
memory of those who have gone before us; 
and to the founders of this great common- 
wealth and our Alma Mater we pay our 
sincerest respect — for they builded better 
than they knew. To the memory of the 
great souls of yesteryears who beat down 
the stony path we so easily tread today we 
have devoted this meager volume. The 
choicest left to us from the past has been 
placed hand in hand with the best this 
school year has had to offer. May we ever 
prize the treasures from the past and seek 
for the inspiration that prompted the 
founders of our university. 


Deed of Trust 
In Memoriam 



To the memory of Brigham Young. 
the founder of our university, whose 
breadth of vision fifty years ago pic- 
tured the great B. Y. U. of today and 
the greater one of tomorrow, and who 
saw that true education is the power 
to think, act, and appreciate, we 
humbly dedicate this volume. 

(Ef)t£ HJnbClttUre, made the sixteenth day of October in the year 
of our Lord. One Thousand. Eight Hundred, and Seventy-five, by 
and between Brigham Young of Salt Lake City, Territory of Utah, 
party of the first part, and Abraham O. Smoot, William Bring- 
hur-t. Leonard E. Harrington. Wilson H. Dusenberry. Martha J. 
Coray, Myron Tanner, and Harvey H. Cluff. all of Utah County, 
in the Territory aforesaid, parties of the second part: 

Whereas, the said party of the first part is desirous of endow- 
ing an institution of learning at Provo City in the county last 
aforesaid, to be known as the Brigham Young Academy of Provo. 

* * * * 

The beneficiaries of this Academy shall be members in good 
standing in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, or

Along with the joy of completing a year of successful work, conies 
a sadness which is very real. Since many of those who are here this 
year will not be able to return, the closing of school means a separa- 
tion from friends who have become very dear. Even though we may 
not have an opportunity of meeting these friends again our lives 
have been enriched by association with them. 

Those of us who remain in the Institution wish those who are 
leaving permanently to know that we appreciate their friendship, 
and we send love and best wishes for success wherever they go. 

Let us all make the friendships established at the B. Y. U. the 
most enduring ones of our lives.

It is to be hoped that the publications of Brigham Young Univer- 
sity will give evidence of scholastic leadership of the institution and 
at the same time bear marks unmistakably indicating that the school 
follows the Church in spirit and in truth. A book reflecting the 
stream of such college life as has been that of 1925-1926 is a mecca 
of moving happiness, whereon there is no wreckage. Cloudlets fleece 
the reflected sky. but they are not such as carry thunderbolts or shut 
out the light from above. The stream of school life of this passing 
year has been wider and deeper, if not clearer than any of the past, 
and from us who have been carried by it is expected a corresponding 
carrying power of happiness and cleanliness of character. 

It is safe to say of the school and its achievements of this year, 
facultv. student bodv. and equipments, the best ever.

College of Arts and Sciences 

This has been the greatest school year 
yet enjoyed by the College of Arts and 
Sciences. With enlarged facilities made 
possible by the new library building 
this department has been able to broad- 
en its scope and increase its efficiency 
materially. Additional opportunities 
for original investigations in the field of 
science have been made possible, thus 
increasing the students' possibilities for 
securing a more fundamental and lib- 
eral education. 

Being a man of genial nature and pro- 
ductive vision, Dean Carl F. Eyring is a 
constant inspiration to the students. 
These qualities enriched by a high stan- 
dard of scholarship have done much to 
make his deanship over the College of 
Arts and Sciences so successful.

College of Applied Science 

The increased enrollment this year in 
the various departments of the College 
of Applied Science indicates a growing 
interest in the practical side of educa- 
tion. It indicates too that students who 
have gone out from this college are mak- 
ing good, which is the surest test as to 
the efficiency of any school. 

As no stream rises higher than its 
source, so no institution rises higher 
than its leaders. Doctor Christen Jen- 
sen as Dean of the College of Applied 
Science has been a successful leader and 
much of the success of this College can 
be attributed to his splendid foresight 
and management. Dean Jensen is a 
man not given to many words. His chief 
form of expression is by deeds rather 
than by words and this quality makes 
him peculiarly fitted for the position he

College of Education 

Education today is not the "hit and 
miss" proposition that it was in years 
past. The day of the old Hoosier school 
master is no more. The candidate for a 
teacher's job now must have a rich back- 
ground of technical training. 

The Brigham Young University is at- 
tempting to furnish the various districts 
with teachers who will be qualified to 
efficiently teach and exemplify. That 
success is being attained is evidenced in 
the increased demand by school boards 
for teachers trained at this institution. 
Under the able direction of Dean L. 
John Nuttall this department has 
reached a marked degree of efficiency. 
The splendid technical training he has 
received; the broad and varied prac- 
tical experience that has been his, com- 
bined with his unusual native ability, 
all contribute to making him well quali- 
fied to fill the position of Dean of the 
College of Education. 

College of Commerce 

The demand for efficient business 
leadership is ever increasing. Economic 
problems are becoming so complex that 
only the trained man or woman can long 
survive in the field of commerce. 

There are a few schools in America 
that provide education in business ad- 
ministration of a practical as well as of 
a theoretical nature. Among them the 
Brigham Young University is not the 
least. Indeed, because of the advance 
made since its organization, there has 
been an increasing demand for its stu- 
dents in the business world. 

The success of this college may be 
traced directly to Dean Harrison V. 
Hoyt, whose broad business experience 
together with his practical and analyti- 
cal mind, make him the efficient and 
wholly capable man that he is for the 
position of Dean of the College of Com- 
merce and Business Administration.

College of Fine Arts 

This year marks the initiation of the 
College of Fine Arts as a separate and 
distinct school. During the past few 
years the growth of the Music. Dramatic 
Art, Modern Language and Art Depart- 
ments has been so great that it became 
necessary to place them under a sep- 
arate deanship in order to handle them 

During this first year of its existence 
the registration has approached very 
near the hundred mark and the depart- 
ment is becoming so popular that next 
year's registration will no doubt far ex- 
ceed this number. 

In the selection of Gerrit de Jong as 
Dean, splendid judgment has been 
shown. His versatility of knowledge, 
his keen sense of humor, his alert and 
ready mind combine in making him the 
well rounded out personality that he is 
— a type superbly qualified to be Dean 
of the College of Fine Arts.

Summer School 

Unless one has attended the summer 
sessions at Brigham Young University, 
he has not found the spirit of the "Y" 
in its entirety. A spirit entirely different 
from that of the regular school prevades 
the summer school. Many of our most 
prominent people interested in educa- 
tion come to the summer sessions to 
search enthusiastically for the inspira- 
tion of educational leaders from all 
parts of the country. 

Dean Woodward has made a name 
for himself by his keen judgment in 
selecting and securing for the summer 
sessions many of the leading men of 
the countrv in a variety of fields, thus 
making our summer school comparable 
in opportunity to many of the largest 
schools in the country. Not onlv is he 
to be recognized for this valuable serv- 
ice but he is furthermore a friend and 
confident to everyone with whom he 
comes in contact.

Dean Nettie Smart 

Mrs. Smart's primary endeavor has 
been to become intimately acquainted 
with all of the girls. She has fully real- 
ized the urgent need girls have of a 
friend who understands the problems 
with which most every girl meets when 
she enters a university. Mrs. Smart has 
felt that the girls of the student body 
have been her children and that she has 
been responsible for representing them. 
During this her first year of association 
with the girls, Mrs. Smart has made 
friends with most all of the girls. We 
all feel confident in her because she has 
made us feel that she is not merely oc- 
cupying a position, but that she does her 
service with a true love and devotion 
which can be none other than that which 
comes directlv from her deep sympa- 
thetic soul. 

John C. Swenson 

In the absence of Dr. Woodward, who 
is sometimes called to teach in the sum- 
mer schools of other universities, Pro- 
fessor John C. Swenson acts as dean of 
the summer school. Professor Swenson 
because of his wide range of experience 
with prominent men and women has 
been of invaluable service in making 
our summer sessions among the very 
best in the west. His interest in human 
beings, inquiring nature, and close ob- 
servation have contributed to making 
him an unusually well-informed teacher 
and a most interesting person with 
whom to be associated.

Student Body Administration 

Our student body administration this year has demonstrated full well that the 
officers who have represented it have been workers of unlimited energy. The new 
situations which have arisen this year have tested thoroughly the ability of those who 
have led the activities of the year. The inevitable obstacles and demands upon the 
resources of those at the stern have proved their inherent worth as leaders and 
servants of their fellow students. 

The officers of this year were placed in their positions of service by an unusually 
firm opinion of the majority of the students of last year, every member of the ticket 
being placed in office by a fairly liberal margin. Immediately upon their election, 
the officers commenced determining the policies to be followed the ensuing year. 
Plans of making copious, itemized reports of each of the student activities of the 
year, such as the different publications, important student body affairs, and affairs 
of the different departments such as the athletic and debate departments. Realizing 
the need of permitting as many students as possible to participate in the various 
activities, our President has followed the plan of encouraging a student to participate 
in but one activity in order that he might do better work and that more students might 
be given an active part in student affairs. 

Among the important contributions of the administration was a partial revision 
of the constitution of the student body. Some of the changes made were the abolish- 
ing of the officers of editors of the Y's Guy and the White and Blue, dropping the 
graduate manager of athletics as a member of the student body council, placing defi- 
nite requirements for the holder of the office of business manager of the Y News, and 
changes in the requirements for some of the student body awards. 

If the generous efforts of the administration have meant the enjoyment of a happy 
school year for the students, doubtless those who have served will have a most com- 
plete reward for their sacrifices.

Associated Alumni of Brigham Young University 

The Semi-centennial Celebration, October 15-16, 1925, was elevated to greater 
importance through the reorganization of the B. Y. U. Alumni Association into the 
Associated Alumni of Brigham Young University. This new organization, respond- 
ing to the need for more definite service to Alma Mater during her second fifty years 
of existence, calls for wide representation of Alumni on the Board of Directors, con- 
sisting of twelve members elected by the membership at large; also the organization 
as outlined in the newly adopted constitution provides for a General Alumni Secre- 
tary to care for the details of the organization. Although in existence but a short 
time, thousands of former students have been located, their records more completely 
filled, their interest has been quickened through the monthly publication of the Y 
ALUMNUS, the official Alumni magazine, and life memberships have begun an en- 
dowment fund of growing importance.

Fifty Years of B. Y. U 

October 16, 1875, marked the beginning of Brigham Young University. On 
that day the "Deed of Trust," conceived by Brigham Young, was formulated. He 
realized the necessity of education in building a new State. He also comprehended 
the value of religious instruction. So it was that the idea of such a school was 
fostered and Brigham Young University was founded. 

President Young endeavored to find a man to fill the appointment of principal. 
He must be willing and capable and be a man of dynamic personality and undaunt- 
ing spirit, who would be able to instruct with a spiritual influence. Karl G. Maeser, 
who was then teaching at a school in Salt Lake City, was summoned and accepted the 
office. Accordingly, in the spring of the following year, April 24, 1876, the school 
held a preliminary session, the first day's enrollment being twenty-nine, the total 
number reaching fifty-nine before the school closed in June. 

The first home could not be called an ideal school building, in fact it was never 
intended for such a purpose. The first floor was used as a store, and the part the 
school occupied was an amusement hall which was improvised into a school room. 
The place was known as Lewis Hall and was located on the present site of the 
Farmers and Merchants Bank. The school began its first academic year's work 
August 27, 1876, with a faculty consisting of Karl G. Maeser, Kristene Smoot, and 
Milton H. Hardy. Although the facilities were poor and were most inconvenient, 
here was born the "Spirit of the Y." Dr. Maeser's influence and personality inspired

those first students as were 
all who came under his 
jurisdiction. Among the 
students of Lewis Hall were: 
Senator Reed Smoot, Sen- 
ator Win. H. King, and Jus- 
tice George Sutherland of 
the United States Supreme 

Lewis Hall was destroyed 
by fire eight years later. The 
flames consumed their 
meager equipment and

books. The situation was 
disheartening, but the spirit 
that was dominant and has 
kept B. Y. U. advancing 
through its struggle for ex- 
istence was manifest in Karl 
G. Maeser's words as he ral- 
lied the students: "The 
building is burned, but the 
spirit of the school still 
lives!" But three days were 
lost of the school routine. 
The school convened in the 
basement of the old taber-

C. M. I. warehouse on Sixth 
South became the official 

The second floor, which 
was used, was one large 
room. This was partitioned 
into an academic room, nor- 
mal room, intermediate 
room, and an office. Here the 
studies advanced to the puf- 
fing; and screeching of en- 
gines, for the school was 
now located by a railroad 
yard. Despite the seeming

disadvantages the school continued to increase its mem- 

The special work emphasized was Education, Music, 
and Art. The Lyceum course began here under the 
name of "Polysophical Society." The faculty members 
were chief performers, each teacher taking his turn in 
giving a special lecture on a phase of his subject be- 
fore the society, which met weekly. Visiting artists to 
Utah, when obtainable, would present programs. Social 
life was satisfied at a dance given every fifth week. 
Many prominent men and women of Provo and the 
state recall those days of pioneering with a tender feel- 

The B. Y. A. continued to grow. The warehouse proved 
inadequate to accommodate the increasing enrollment, 
so the Church, with some assistance from the general 
public, the students, the faculty, alumni association, and 
generous patrons, made appropriation for a school house. 
The Education building planned by Don Corlas Young, 
a son of the founder, was erected. The structure was 
one of the first of a new type of schools in the state 
and was the finest in Utah. It was a triumph for those 
students and faculty members as they formed a pro- 

cession, headed by Dr. Maeser, 
and marched to their new home. 
In Dr. Maeser's address he said, 
"The old man taught in a cabin, 
but they've built a palace for his 
boys." Previous to the removal 
to the new school, Karl G. Mae- 
ser had been appointed as Super- 
intendent of the Church School 
System, and his duties often 
called him to other parts of the 
state. Dr. Maeser's whole soul had 
been in his work. With reluct- 
ance he bade the school goodbye. 
He told them, "Of all the words 
of the Enlgish language the hard- 
est to say is 'Farewell.' This, my 
dear students and my dear fellow 
teachers, you will not require of 
me." Dr. Benjamin Cluff, Jr., 

An Early Faculty 

Our First Football Team 

was appointed executive January, 1892, following the 
resignation of Dr. Maeser. 

Dr. Cluff stressed scholastic attainment. Through 
his influence a group of students attended eastern in- 
stitutions for the purpose of training for faculty aid. 

Many new features were inaugurated. Class or- 
ganizations were effected. A school periodical was 
published. "The Pedogogium." out of which grew 
"The Normal." "The White and Blue," and "The Y 
News." Provisions were made for work leading to 
conferring of degrees, also the Summer School move- 
ment in the stale was pioneered. The trees on the 
campus were planted by students and faculty at 
that time. 


The school heretofore had depended 
chiefly on its tuition fund and money from 
the endowment for its support; this was 
now supplemented by Church appropria- 
tions. The "Deed of Trust" was super- 
ceded by articles of incorporation by which 
every member of the church is made a 
stockholder. Trustees are elected by the 
church bi-annually at the general confer- 
ence of the church. 

The B. Y. U. Alumni have been loyal to 
Alma Mater. Many times have they as- 
sisted in a financial struggle. The College 
building is the result of Alumni solicita- 
tion. Reed Smoot offered his services as a 
member of the Alumni to launch a drive 
for funds when the prospects of the new 
building looked doubtful. So the College 
building was erected, a gift of ten people 

The Education Building 

Athletics had gradually taken its place 
on the curriculum. Football was intro- 
duced in 1896, but was soon abolished be- 
cause of disapproval of the game by author- 
ities. Football was not introduced again 
until six years ago. It has not become a 
major sport. Basketball has been the Y's 
specialty. A list of championships are 
recorded to our credit for many years back. 

The "Y" on the hill was built in 1906. 
and was designed by Marian Wakefield. 

During President Brimhall's administra- 
tion, the college degrees. Bachelor of Arts, 
and Bachelor of Science were first given 
for completion of four years work above 
High School.

subscription from five stakes; the Ladies'

whose names appear on a marble 
tablet in the lower hall. The 
Knight family were the most lib- 
eral donors. The building was 
equipped by alumni, friends, and 

Dr. Guff's last official act as 
President, was to change the 
name of Brigham Young Acad- 
emy, as it was then called, to 
Brigham Young University. He 
resigned in 1903. Dr. George H. 
Brimhall, who had been in charge 
during Dr. Guff's absence as 
head of an exploring expedition 
into South America, succeeded 
him as President. 

A Training School building 
was the next project to be com- 
pleted. Contributions amounting 
to $35,000 were made. "Uncle" 
Jesse Knight was the chief donor. 
The upper story of the training 
building was equipped as a gym-

The Semi -Centennial Celebration of Brigham 
Young University, 1925 

"Where there is no vision the people perish;" where there is no rainbow there is 
no beautiful city; where there is no high purpose there is no noble attainment. The 
dreamer of dreams with practical vision builds for the future, plans today that he 
may be something higher and better tomorrow. With infinite vision he sees that his 
ideal must be made progressively actual or lose its power to shape life and form char- 
acter. Such a vision, such a goal fired the imagination and strengthened the zeal of 
the man who founded the Brigham Young Academy in 1875. 

With a keen sense of his responsibility as the leader of a great people, actuated by 
the principles of the prophet founder of the church committed to his keeping, realiz- 
ing the significance of the words of that prophet that salvation is a matter of eternal 
progress, that "no man can be saved in ignorance," Brigham Young conceived a 
system of education that should comprehend in its aims and purposes all phases of 
human learning. With the prescient eye of inspiration he saw that a true religion 
could not be a mere segment, but must be the center of the circle of life, circum- 
scribing all knowledge. Therefore, with a vision of the destiny of his people and 
their ever expanding needs, he founded the institution now celebrating its semi-cen- 
tennial year. 

Looking back upon the achievements of fifty years there is much of which we 
may be justly proud. Tested by fire, tried by poverty, menaced at times by the 
challenge to adjust its policy to the science and scholarship of a new age, it has ever 
gone on, evolving from academy to university, enriching its curriculum and widening 
its purposes, passing from humble quarters into more "stately mansions," and pre- 



serving withal its basic ideals of faith and character building. This jubilee year, 

climaxed by the dedication of the beautiful library on the hill, testifies to objects 

attained, to hopes fulfilled, to purposes achieved; and visions with great promise, 
aspirations yet to be realized. 

Truly, the great Semi-centennial, staged October 15, 16, and 17, was a retrospect 
and a forecast, a commemoration and a prophecy. Thousands of students and friends 
gathered in from far and near and told their tales of long ago. They were thrilled 
with the spirit of the institution and the power that it had exerted in their lives; and. 
moreover, they were exultant over the thought that it would continue to serve their 
children and their children's children. Everywhere there were geniality and hearty 

A unique and entertaining feature of the three days' program was the historical 
exhibit in the faculty room. Here hundreds of photographs dating from 1875 to the 
present were in evidence. In addition were exhibits of productive scholarship and 
handicraft, furnishing a comparative study of then and now. 

The first important meeting — an historic one — was held Thursday afternoon, 
October 15th. At this meeting President-Emeritus George H. Brimhall with his usual 
fire and enthusiasm gave an account of the founding of the school, some of its 
struggles and growth, and eloquently proclaimed its present high standing and pros- 
pects. Colonel Willard Young discussed the educational ideals of his father. Presi- 
dent Brigham Young, the founder of the school; and Superintendent Adam S. Ben- 
nion, in his usual sparkling and brilliant style elaborated upon an unwritten chapter 
( prophetic forecast ) of the school. An interesting feature of this occasion was the 
roll call of original twenty-nine students who attended the short term from April 24 
to May 26, 1876. Enthusiastic applause greeted the following when they responded 
by rising to their feet: Diantha Billings Worsley, Alice Smoot Newell. Sarah 
Eggertson Guff, Joseph B. Keeler, Marietta Riggs Beesley, and Simon P. Eggertson. 
The famous B. Y. U. Band, in evidence during the whole three days' celebration, gave 
a special band concert at 4:30 on University Hill. Professor Robert Sauer may be 
justly proud of the band, the peer of any in the West. 

An alumni plate dinner and an alumni meeting in the evening closed the first 
day's celebration. A spicy program of classic music and extemporaneous toasts 
furnished entertainment for those assembled. While all members were worthy of 
mention, it may not be out of place to give special mention to a significant address 
by David J. Wilson, a graduate of the school and now one of the leading attorneys 
of Ogden, on School Traditions, and to the semi-centennial prayer written by Annie 
Pike Greenwood and rendered by Professor Alice Reynolds. 

Only the merest mention can be made of the proceedings in general of the fol- 
lowing two days. Two outstanding features will be particularly stressed, the meet- 
ing in the Tabernacle Friday afternoon and the dedication of the Heber J. Grant 
Library in the afternoon. The day's proceedings were introduced by an academic pro- 
cession made up not only of the faculty, students, and friends of the institution, but 
of delegates from some thirty-eight important universities of the United States and 
six educational societies. The parade was one of the most imposing ever seen in 
Provo. At the conclusion the multitude filed into the Stake Tabernacle where a most 
interesting program was rendered, the central feature and pivotal point of which 
was the address by Dr. Herbert Eugene Bolton, curator of the famous Bancroft 
Library in the University of California and head of the history department of that 

Doctor Bolton took for his subject "Brigham Young as an Empire Builder, or the 
Mormons in the Development of the Great West." No man in the LInited States is 
so completely master of this field of history as is Doctor Bolton, and no scientific 
investigator could be more objective, more impartial, more fair, or more just. With 
malice toward none and with sympathy for all, he painted the picture of westward 
advance, depicting in vivid colors the courage and bravery, the struggles and sacri- 
fices of the brave men and women who made their contributions to the development 


of the broad expanse of wilderness which makes the United States the mighty Repub- 
lic that it is today. "The 'Westward Movement,' " said he, "is our great national 
epic;" and then with an eloquence born of a complete mastery of his theme he pro- 
ceeded to describe in vivid colors the movement ever onward from the Atlantic Tide- 
water to the shores of the Pacific. Under the spell of "manifest destiny" and with 
that consummate courage and adventure so characteristic of the American Yankee, 
trapper and explorer, lumber-jack, miner, cowpuncher. and farmer, resistlessly pur- 
sued their way slowly at times and again with tremendous force until the whole west, 
including the Spanish Mexican empire north of the Rio Grande, was carved into 
American states. In this great movement the Mormon exodus formed a unique and 
important incident. Following in the wake of many who had gone before, President 
Young turned his people from Oregon and Pacific California into the less inviting 
and more isolated regions of the Salt Lake Valleys and there planted the nucleus of 
a great state. He showed the Mormons to be ardent nationalists and patriotically 
devoted the imperialistic doctrine of "manifest destiny" and an ever enlarging L nited 
States. The Mormon migration was thus placed in its proper perspective and given 
added significance in its relation to our national life. He closed, after holding the 
vast audience almost spellbound for two hours, with a sincere tribute to Brigham 
Young who had directed so wisely the movements resulting in a great state and 
magnificent educational institutions among which is Brigham Young University. 
His closing words were to the effect that on that notable dav fifty years ago Brigham 
Young had made all present and coming generations his heirs. "No wonder." he 
said, "you revere his memory." President Heber J. Grant followed with a brief 
though pertinent address in which he expressed great pleasure that Doctor Bolton's 
remarks were not cut short. In fact, he said he could have listened much longer to 
him. Particularly was he pleased when scholarlv men came and told the truth 
about the Mormons. With his usual earnestness, President Grant bore a strong 
testimony to the divinity of Joseph Smith's mission, and proclaimed as the great 

[45 1 

purpose of the University that of establishing an absolute testimony of the divinity 
of Jesus Christ. 

In the afternoon, dedicatory exercises were held in the beautiful auditorium of 
the new Heber J. Grant Library, President Heber J. Grant himself offering the 
dedicatory prayer. President Franklin Stewart Harris was felicitous in his intro- 
ductory remarks and expressed pleasure because of the presence of so many promi- 
nent educators. Among those who rendered sentiments were President E. G. Peterson 
of the Agricultural College, Dr. John A. Widtsoe of the church school commission, 
Apostle Richard R. Lyman, Dr. C. N. Jensen, superintendent of public instruction; 
President Thomas N. Taylor of Utah Stake, Sister Augusta Grant, wife of President 
Grant, and President Grant himself. 

A semi-centennial dinner in the evening concluded the second day's program. 
Various delegates from outside universities as well as representatives of our own 
school gave appropriate and significant toasts. The occasion marked the fitting climax 
to the day. 

Saturday, October 17th, was reminiscent day. An historic parade representing 
various phases of interest, past and present, was most successfully conducted. At 
various historic spots, e. g., site of Old Lewis Hall, Old Warehouse, etc., reminis- 
cences were rendered by charter members of the school. 

In the afternoon on University field enthusiasm ran high when the Brigham Young 
University football team defeated the team from Colorado College, Colorado Springs, 
Colorado, in a closely and hard fought game, the score being 7-6. 

A student body dance in the evening marked the close of the three days' celebra- 
tion. The semi-centennial celebration of the founding of the Brigham Young Uni- 
versity thus passed into history, but the spirit of the occasion remains and prophesies 
great things for the future of the institution.

Assistant Professor of Sociology 

Director Extension Division 

B.S., 1916, Utah Agricultural College 

M.S., 1924, University of Wisconsin 


The Extension Division 

The real student-body of the Brigham Young University has been extended in 
recent years to include about five hundred non-resident students. These are students 
in correspondence courses and Extension classes. Of the latter, the Extension Divi- 
sion this year has organized fifteen in various communities of Utah and Juab counties. 
Over eighty courses are offered by correspondence and students to the number of 
about two hundred fifty are at present enrolled. 

In addition to the academic courses given through the Extension Division a num- 
ber of other important services are rendered by this agency. The chief purpose is to 
carry the various departments of the university out to the communities. One of the 
important new developments in this direction is the offering of package libraries on 
a wide variety of subjects. These libraries are free to individuals who are willing 
to pay the postage both ways. 

Outlines for women's clubs are also provided by the Extension Division and any 
club may subscribe for these courses upon the payment of a nominal fee. The Exten- 
sion Division supplies lecturers and entertainments to organizations throughout the 
State and organizes the tours for the band, orchestra, glee clubs, quartettes, etc. 
Leadership Week comes under the jurisdiction of the Extension Division, as well 
as the organization of leadership weeks away from the institution. 

The Fifth Annual Leadership Week 

The Fifth Annual Leadership Week which was held January 25-30, 1926, was 
a significant event in the history of Brigham Young University. Not only was the at- 
tendance of delegates representative of a wider geographical area, — there being 
seventy-two stakes represented, — but a vastly larger number of people all over the 
intermountain and coast region were able to hear by radio the proceedings of the 
general assembly each day. These proceedings were broadcasted by remote control 
from radio station KSL located at Salt Lake City. 

A very significant thing about the program this year was the appearance on the 
program of the general assemblies of all three members of the First Presidency of 
the Church. This was the first time such has happened. President Nibley remarked 
that it was the first time he had been in College Hall. 

The week was characterized by even greater enthusiasm than has ever before been 
manifested on the part of the people in attendance. This is doubtless due to the fact 
that the subject matter in the twenty-five courses was semi-technical and was coherent 
through the week. The tendency has been, since the first Leadership Week, to have 
one individual give the series of five lectures in each course in order that more inten- 
sive material might be given. 

The Leadership Week idea is spreading over the Church. Several of the Junior 
Colleges have conducted them and in locations where there is no Junior College, 
stakes are cooperating in the venture. The first instance of stakes conducting leader- 
ship institutes on a cooperative basis is the Southern Idaho District Leadership Week 
held for the first time at Burley, in March, 1926. Six Idaho stakes in this section 
collaborated and four members of the Brigham Young University faculty gave 



Summer School 

When a visiting professor comes for a summer session to a university with which 
he has had hitherto no associations, he sometimes wonders whether he will be able to 
adjust himself sucessfully to the new conditions and also whether the students and 
the professors and the community will be willing to take him for what he is and make 
his visit a pleasant one. I cannot say that my coming to Provo for the summer term 
of 1925 was of any particular benefit to Brigham Young University; but certainly the 
students and the professors and the community all did their share toward making 
my stay at Provo one of the most delightful experiences I have ever had. 

In the first place, everybody was natural and cordial from the very minute that 
I was introduced. It may be debated whether love at sight is possible or only an 
illusion, but friendship at sight is something that the people at Young have definitely 
proved is not only possible but entirely normal. That is the first thing to record 
about the summer session at Provo: it is a thoroughly friendly affair. From the 
opening dance to the final picnic, a spirit of good will and cordialitv prevailed. May 
I only record my personal enjoyment of the various excursions under the capable 
management of H. R. Merrill. 

But recreation, however necessarv it is and however successfully it is pursued, 
can never be the important thing where a university is concerned. It is with pleasure 
that I testify to the serious interest in scholarship and the determination to uphold 
university standards that I found among my colleagues at Brigham Young. Coming 


from Stanford University, I was accustomed to high standards as a matter of course, 
with a constant consideration of how the standards might be raised still higher. At 
Young there was the same interest in raising the standards, but more consideration 
for the student who was doing his best even if his best was not very good. In fact, 
in the rather human interest which the members of the faculty took in their work, in 
the absence of academic "red tape," in the general spirit of informality and friendli- 
ness without compromise to careless or slovenly work, there was a great deal at 
Young which reminded me of the Stanford of twenty years ago — the Stanford that I 
first knew. Perhaps this was because some of the leading professors at Young had 
been Stanford men. I became thoroughly convinced that Young University is 
pointed in the right direction, and that its future is very promising. One of the things 
that encouraged me most was the drive for more books for the library. With the 
splendid new buildings on the hill — an almost perfect site for a university — it would 
be too bad if the INSIDE equipment did not keep pace with the OUTSIDE! I under- 
stand that the library "drive" was remarkably successful; but a library is not a 
thing that can be stocked like a fish-pond and left to take care of itself. There must 
be no end to the effort to build up the library until a generous and ample endowment 
fund has been provided. 

It would be unfair to praise the community at Provo and the faculty of Young 
University and leave aside the element for which the whole university exists — the 
student body. I have yet to find a more earnest and worth-while set of students to 
work with than I found in my classes at Provo and at Aspen Grove. Some of the 
work which I got from my students was of exceptionally high quality, and practically 
all of it was done in the right spirit. Indeed, as I look back upon my summer now. 
I rather suspect a conspiracy — a conspiracy in which they had all entered from the 
genial and efficient President to the youngest stenographer — to make a summer's 
teaching coincide with a summer vacation.

Summer School 

One seems verily to companion with the stars, when he steps out of his tent at 
night during the Alpine term of the summer quarter to inhale a few quaffs ol the 
exhilarating atmosphere of that glorious place. Whatever inspired the beginning ot 
the Alpine summer school we do not know, but certainly hundreds who have at- 
tended it will testify that they have never been so inspired with any institution be- 
fore as they have with it. 

At this school the characteristic thing is the utter democracy of the group. No 
class distinction of anv kind. The most enjoyable feature of the term is the absolute 
freedom of discussion.' Here are aired many of the knotty problems of the day, and 
without reserve. Everyone seems to know and have confidence in everyone else and 
there is a perfect unreserve in conversation on the vital issues of the time 1 his tor 
most students and faculty members as well has been the chief delight of this session. 

The curriculum as is to be expected emphasizes the natural sciences, but there is 
a liberal offering of courses in such subjects as education, literature sociology, art 
etc There is no better laboratory to be found anywhere for the study ot plant and 
certain forms of animal and insect life. Each year several new species of plant lite 
have been identified and classified in this section. The range of plant lite is re- 

The advantage of the Alpine school lies chiefly in its seclusion from the hub-bub 
of the world. Here scholars may meditate. Here creative minds may find inspira- 
tion and opportunity for uninterrupted contemplation. The artist is eyercont routed 
with scenes which challenge the best he has in him. It is a school for scholars, and 
if kept such, it can become a garden of original thought.

Our college days are now fond memories. For four seemingly short years we 
have worked and played together. The friendships formed have themselves made 
these happy years profitable many fold and will be milestones along the pleasant 
path of our school life, when during the years yet unborn we look back with joyful 
recollection upon our college days. To the faculty we owe a debt of infinite grati- 
tude for their untiring efforts and sacrifice to teach us of the bigger and more beau- 
tiful life. 

Our studies and more serious occupations have not been unleavened with a 
goodly share of invigorating student body activities. We began the year by winning 
the prize for the more ardent support of the Sophomore Loan Fund cause. Our 
Wild West party, held in fellowship with the Juniors, holds the distinction of being 
the only one of its type ever held in the history of the institution; and it will proba- 
bly not be duplicated for a considerable time. Our class play, "Captain Applejack," 
was staged with a smoothness and impressiveness truly indicative of the patient and 
enthusiastic efforts expended. Our final fun-fest being a "Tourists' Convention," held 
at Vivian Park, was noted for its absence of "flat tires." 

The commencement of work on a new athletic field on the proposed stadium site 
is our project. We are hoping that our monument to the school will be a perpetual 
temple of the true "Y" ideal of good sportsmanship. 

We bid farewell to our school during the year of her fiftieth birthday, happy to 
have formed a part of our Alma Mater in launching her new era of growth. We now 
go forth into life in search of the best she has to offer, but always with the deter- 
mination that the true spirit of service to our fellowmen shall ever be our guide and

This school year has been one of outstanding accomplishments for 
the Junior class. The Junior vaudeville, presented by the class, was 
of such a character as to assure the event a permanent place on the 
school calendar as a traditional undertaking for the Junior classes. 
The Class of '25 inaugurated the custom of the entertainment two 
years ago. 

"Frosty" Richards, a Junior, won the annual Turkey cross-country 
run for the third consecutive year, thereby possessing the cup and 
entitling the class to their third Thanksgiving turkey. 

The Junior-Senior "Wild West" party, which has become famous- 
ly known, proved an outlet for enthusiasm. The wild, free spirit of 
the old West was represented realistically in costumes, dancing, and 

The Juniors have carried the year's program through in a credit- 
able manner. The traditional events have been outstanding in their 
well-organized method of presentation.

The Junior Promenade reaches the climax of a year's social gai- 
eties. The Junior class, as it takes that degree in scholastic advance- 
ment, has foremost on its calendar this social event of the year. All 
efforts and talents are directed to making the Junior Prom a pinnacle 
of success. The Juniors this year were hosts at one of the most beau- 
tiful social fiestas ever given at Brigham Young. Flowers in pastel 
shades, vines, and flowering shrubs were artistically arranged to 
give the atmosphere of a colonial garden. Professor E. H. East- 
mond, of the Art Department, assisted the class by designing, and 
supervising the making of the decorations.

The Sophomore class successfully organized and presented the annual Loan Fund 
Ball which the Sophomore class of 1921 instituted as a worthy project for each 
second year class to promote. Every year the sales receipts are added to the Student 
Loan Fund. This fund is available for students who are in need of money for the 
completion of school. The Class of '28 increased the fund materially. 

The Sophomore fellows adopted a uniform costume, consisting of knickers and 
sweater. Although the practicability of the costume is doubtful, the effect was out- 
standingly "collegiate." 

A "kids" frolic, a colonial party, and the Freshmen-Sophomore hike at which the 
Sophs acted as hosts, comprise the social events of the Sophomore class of 1925-26.

Five hundred students, practically strangers to each other, began the school year 
as the Freshmen class. The officers chosen, Max Taylor, president, and Anna Peay as 
vice-president, realized that in order to function as a group their interests must be of 
one accord, and a bonfire party at the grove on Temple Hill was the beginning of the 
process of socializing the class. The next social was a "John Alden and Priscilla" 
party at which each guest was uniquely costumed at the dance. 

Freshie Day at the close of the fall quarter completed the Freshman initiation. 
With great ceremony the despised green caps were burned and all restrictions were 
lifted. The Freshmen succeeded in pulling the Sophs through the water line in the 
tug-of-war. This day proved the greenlings to be a firmly established, unified group. 
The Freshman Ball was the final event of the day. 

Originality seems to have been one of the Freshmen's assets, judging from other 
social ventures of the class. A Barnyard party, the Frosh Fools' Frolic, a party on 
Utah Lake, and informal "mixers" given as matinees were successes in which a large 
majority of the class participated. 

The Freshmen football team defended the class honors in many encounters. Two 
Freshmen occupied places on B. Y.'s basketball string. 

As there is strength in large numbers, so is there double strength in unity. In 
the Class of '29 is invested the power of raising the standards of Brigham Young 
University, scholastically, physically, and socially.

The Freshman finished the first lap of the four-year Marathon 
with notable achievement. In athletics, they brought honor to the 
school; and credit is due them in many activities. We predict that 
they will carry on the good work, and that the graduating class of 
'29 can look back on four successful years. Sensing the importance 
of the impending year, the Freshmen took great pains to provide 
themselves with the best helmsman available. After a stormy and 
unique election, David F. Hart was announced their president for the 
Sophomore year.

The High School 

The school year of 1925-26 has ushered in new things, and has fostered the old 
activities at the B. Y. U. High School. 

The organization has been complete and has worked as a unit, though small, in 
the accomplishment of activities fostered by larger high school groups. 

For the first time in several years basketball began to take its place as it should. 
Seven sweaters, as awards were given to deserving players. The team was successful 
in winning many encounters with several teams of recognized high standing. This is 
but an indication of the future's activities in basketball. 

While track work was not fostered particularly, the men succeeded in winning 
places among the best on the track. 

In tennis the laurels in the invitation track meet came to the B. Y. U. High School, 
both in the singles and the doubles. 

Dramatics attained a prominent place in the High School activities. Several one 
act plays and the competitive play "The Touchdown" were presented with good suc- 
cess. Four awards, dramatic pins, were given to the competitive players in apprecia- 
tion of their work. 

The social life of the high school took the forms of dances, and hikes — all of 
which were entered into whole-heartedly and were thoroughly enjoyed by all. 

The organization next school year is to include all branches of athletics, debating, 
declamation, with an enlarged progam of activity in the phases now entered into.

"And we turn our gaze backward to view one of those shining days when it was 
given us also to sojourn among the Fortunate Islands." 

The School Year — In Five Acts 

Let us pause for a moment, forget that the world is outside, forget that the present 
is impatient, that the future calls us. Let us dip into the past for an hour or so and 
dwell upon experience now gone, let us view briefly in our mind's eye portions of the 
eventful year of 1926. Let us imagine that we are seated in a large theatre where 
across the stage go reminders of a successful and enjoyable school year. We wait 
with impatience, the orchestra has already begun to play, the footlights flash upon the 
stage, the audience is silent, the curtain slowly rises. 

Act I — Scene 1. 
Time — September 16, 1925 Place — Lower hall of the Education 

9:30 o'clock. Building, Registrar's Office. 

As the curtain rises, we see before us an office. Three windows are labeled thus: 
""Registrar" — "Secretary" — "Treasurer." 


(Enter right I Two boys — One nudges the other — they grin. 

"Whew! I guess this here's the place. I. wonder which window you go to first. 
'Registrar.' That ought to be it. Go ask, will you Joe?" 

"No. I believe you have to pay somebody before you can do anything — let's see. 
Now, if we could get hold of one of them cards — you have to have "em. Ask that 
guy where he got his. 

(Voice from behind bars I "Were you wanting something?" 

"Ah — er — are you the one that — we want to register?" 

"Here vou are. Now fill out the first three cards. Yes — urn hum. last name 
first, and put the — " 

"Heavens above. Mary, doesn't this get on your nerves? My head is just buzzing. 
Come on. we'll go over to "Kens' and revive our spirits. Good-bye kids. See \ou 
this afternoon. We'll go down and see Conrad Nagle and Gloria Swanson in 'The 
Vampire Lady.' They say it's wonderful." 

I Quick curtain ) 

And so we come back again to sav "hello" to everybody and "kid" the faculty, so 
to speak. A week finds us making new acquaintances and enjoying ourselves im- 


At the first devotional we meet the student body officers. Owen Romney, our 
president, is a married man we find out eventually; and that's that girls, so be care- 
ful. Libbie Cook, Vice-president, is a born leader, and the best girl ever, according 
to all reports. We sing the college song and get better acquainted. 

We might make mention of the fact that everyone has an opportunity to hold 
hands at least once during the year if they never do it again. Some take advantage 
of their opportunities — many in fact — that is why the "Handshake" is always so 
crowded and is such a successful affair. 

We go home perfectly satisfied and rest up for next week. 

Act II — Scene 1 
Time — September 22. Place — Faculty Room. 

As the curtain rises we notice a stern personage, evidently acting in the capacity 
of a judge, seated in front of a small group of students. At his right is seated a sec- 
retary who arises and speaks. 

"If you will come to order we will begin with the court proceedings. Answer as 
your name is called: Lucretia Ashby, Jasmine Parry, Earl Marshall, Anna Peay, Erma 
Lloyd, Warner Davidson." 

The judge raps the desk. "Miss Ashby, arise." 

(Extended pause during which time the clock ticks violently). 


"A serious charge has been brought up against you. Miss Ashby. the importance 
of which cannot be overlooked. You have failed to observe the rules of this institu- 
tion. This is already your third offense and a double charge is brought against you. 
You entered the front door this morning without your ribbon. Am I not right?'' 

"Well— I— a—" 

"Guilty or not guilty!!" 

"Not guilty. I had my ribbon with me but didn't have time to put it on and be- 
sides the car was late and — ' 

"Be seated. The court rules that the argument is insufficient. Am I not right, 

I Nods from the three other officers ! . 

"Next case." . _ 

"Miss Peay. I believe, vice-president of the Freshman class. Am I not right. 

Guiltv, I suppose?" ill 

"I think it's a perfect outrage and a silly waste of time. \\ hat good does that 
ribbon do? It gives me no inspiration whatsoever. I won't be bossed by — 

"Guilty or not guilty?" 

"Er — guilty." 

"Rake leaves from 2:30 to 4:30 tomorrow afternoon." 

"I'm sorrv. but I always so to the movies at that hour." 

[ 125 ] 

"The court rules, Miss Peay. Am I not right, gentlemen?" (nods from the three) 
"The movies are of no consequence. This being your third offense, I give you fair 
warning before pronouncing sentence. Remember, one more time and we shall have 
to deprive you of your rights. Ahem ! I sentence you to the rock pile for three hours 
tomorrow. Case dismissed." 

"Now, I want to warn you freshmen that these rules are not made for the sake 
of entertaining the student body. They are a serious matter and you who have ap- 
peared this time should use the utmost caution as to your actions hereafter. There 
is not the slightest doubt but that we shall catch you, should you afford us the oppor- 
tunity to do so. 'Beware' is the word." (Thumps on the desk loudly) . 

"Court adjourned until Wednesday." 

Some of the victims rush out hurriedly. One or two linger to bestow icy glances 
upon the judge and policemen whose faces remained fixed and stern until the last 
offender passed through the door. Then the stern looks disappear. The stout jurj 
member with the light wavy hair, and the blue sweater winks at the judge, who re- 
turns the salute, chuckles to himself, and yawns in a bored manner. 

A bell is heard. (The curtain falls slowly). 

(Ten Minute Intermission) 


It is by this time the last of September and we still continue to lead a dog's life. 
If it weren't for the girls and fellows we'd die off completely. 

Speaking of the ladies, they're surely a live crowd when they get started, and 
they began this year with a "hello party." It was a very exclusive sort of affair, for 
women only, that they might get better acquainted with one another. 

We hikers are full of the old spirit too and in the glorious autumn of 1926 we 
pack up our valises (I mean our bedding) and hie to the hills to live for a day or 
two among the wonders of nature, the birds, the bees — I almost said butterflies. We 
climb to the highest pinacle of Mt. Timp. and view the magnificent sight beneath. 
'Tis a wonderous trip, the autumn leaf hike, from start to finish. 

On arriving home we learn that the Colorado Aggies have defeated us in the 
first football game of the season. News from Salt Lake City informs us that the 
band has taken first prize at the State Fair. We retire feeling glad at heart, especially 
since this date is conference recess and therefore we'll have two more days to study 
our Zoology, Geology, Psychology, and it also gives us a few more hours to spend in 
sweet slumber? — well, you know what I mean. 

An important date draws near, October the 16th, the beginning of one of the most 
glorious weeks in the history of the school. We prepare feverishly, anticipate wildly, 
d talk extensively — and no wonder. We are about to celebrate our birthday. 




We're not like the old maid, either. We're fifty years young and proud of it. Not 
such a bad age after all. 

The alumni return to rejoice with us and to renew acquaintances with old friends 
who used to attend the B. Y. U. 

It is with deepest pride that we view the formal opening of the Semi-centenial — the 
Founder's Day Parade on the morning of Friday, October 16. The procession, led by 
President F. S. Harris in academic attire and followed by delegates, faculty, alumni, 
and students, passes down the avenue to the Stake Tabernacle where the opening 
meeting is held. Dr. H. E. Bolton, of the University of California, thrills us with an 
inspiring address on "Brigham Young, a Builder of the West." President Heber J. 
Grant pays tribute also to the founder of our school, Brigham Young, a leader, a 

Just to add to our already brimming cup, we succeed in winning by one point 
the football game between Colorado College and B. Y. in one of the most thrilling 
games of the season. So we shove on the "glad rags" and wear out shoe leather in 
our favorite haunt — the Ladies' Gym. 

The eventful week closes having been one of the most successful in the history of 
the institution. May the centennial celebration find us progressing with the same 
degree of assurance, with steadfast gait, with eyes turned up toward great things of 
the future. 


There are just a few things we must not fail to mention before the next scene, and 
they are these: When it comes to winning things, "there ain't no grass on us." \ve 
must admit that we lost the football game with Utah on October 31st, but then we 
won a 36-6 victory over the Western States College November 14. We still have the 
grand old team. 

We win again on November 21, this time from Montana State College, and cele- 
brate by a "swing" in the Ladies' Gym. That's one place that comes in handy when 
one wants to work off an over dose of enthusiasm or to bring low spirits back to 
normal again. 

Just as the old bell pealed out the hour of 12:30, November 25. a renowned 
Pleasant Grover set out at a rapid pace to win the cross-country run. and win he did. 
He brought the turkey to the Juniors for three consecutive years, the greatest record 
yet established at the Young. Congratulations, Frosty, we must hand it to you. 

There never was a bunch who could hold down a "rep" for systematic yelling 
like the "Y" high school crowd. They take the Evans- Jensen Yell Trophy, this being 
the second year they have won the contest. They seem to flourish under the leader- 
ship of R. G. Clark and Joe Bown. 

We welcome the band boys home from the wilds of Idaho. December 1. We heard 
ihey made a tremendous hit. Looks like it anyway. 

I 129 J 

The President's Home 

December 9, we commemorate the anniversary of the birth of our beloved Presi- 
dent George H. Brimhall, and listen to the original readings of Annie Pike Greenwood 
who wrote the college song and attended school here. 

We still continue to win; that is, Glen Rowe does. His speech on "Individualism 
or Team Play?" gave him the Levin Oratorical Contest, December 11. His contest- 
ant was LeGrande Jarman. 

And we rejoice for 'tis Christmas tide and rush home to hang up our stocking 
and listen for the jingle of sleighbells on the roof. Be that as it may, remember we 
are only young once. 

Christmas always leaves its effects, good, bad, or indifferent. Anyway we find 
that some of our most prominent young men have lost their hold and fallen before 
the wiles of some of our fair maidens. Two out of one family show that one must 
not be outdone. What about it Nina and Gen? We were not surprised when Bernice 
flashed a bright light in our eyes, nor when Virginia let us in on the secret. We had 
to 'phone down to Hedquist Drug to make sure of one affair, but sure enough goo"d 
news travels fast. And Dean Hoyt lost his secretary and he'll never be the same, (I 
mean the secretary). Congratulations! The drinks on me. 

We return to find ourselves in the midst of an exciting season, the basketball sea- 
son. It's the time when ladies forget they're ladies, when men lose their reserve, 


■-', to 


when high school girls go crazy over the basketball stars, when you can't pick up a 
paper without reading something about the Cougars, the Bobcats, the Lies, or some 
other vicious characters. It's the time when such men as Bob. Buck, Lob. Rus. Stein 
are in the limelight and are thoroughly enjoying themselves, even if they do have 
to go home at 10:30. Well, we almost took the Rocky Mountain Championship and 
we tied in the State. Not a bad record. We're proud of you, fellows, cause we have 
the grand old team! 

Teams and more teams ! The women triangle debaters do their stuff in open forum 
discussion on the question of marriage and divorce. Isn*t it odd they would assign 
the girls such an appropriate topic. After inexhaustive research these girls gave 
some most interesting material, some things we had never heard of before. They 
thoroughly convinced us that they had the situation worked out thoroughly, in theory 
at least. 

During this pause let us take a glimpse into some of the gayest moments of all — 
our dances. How many carefree hours have we spent whirling to rhythmic beat of 
jazz orchestras. How light our hearts, how delightful our anticipations, how cher- 
ished the memories of each. Just to remind us of the major ones of the year let us 
glance briefly at each. The curtain rises. 


Act III — Scene 1 

All is dark along the avenue save where lights blaze forth from the Gym. and the 
"Y" Drug. A boy and girl ride up in a limousine? No in a small wagon. He calls 

"Hey there, John, where'd ya park yer car?" 

"Right here, Joe," answers a voice, "don't leave it outside they might take yer 

"Whew, I had a sweet time getting that girl here. She's heavier than she looks, 
and my bike's running badly." 

"Come on, Sally, let's dance. Ain't the music grand?" 

"There! You naughty boy. You've torn my best dancing dress. Oh, what will 
Mother say? Where's your bringing up? You're not supposed to fight the girls." 

"Have you tasted the ice cream yet, Harold? Better get some before it's all gone." 

"Wheel Mary, look how I can stand on my head. Bet you dasen't do that." 

We act our parts, we Sophomores, and indulge in an honest-to-goodness kid party. 
We don't have to worry about getting put off the floor or about our short dresses or 
getting our hair mussed. Oh, and we mustn't forget to tell you that Maggie Barton 
and Louis Sorenson took the prize for being the two best looking "kids" in the hall. 


Act III — Scene 2 

Extra, Extra. Special edition of the Knicker Knocker. Stand by. folks, one at a time, please. 

"What do you think of that picture of the student body officers? Do you think they posed for 
the special occasion. It looks rather tame to me." 

"Look at my name in blazing headlines. Here's homing Mother doesn't see this." 

"Oh, Anna, what are you wearing tonight? I cant hardly wait. Don't you think its going 
to be great? Mother's making me a new dress especially for the Loan Fund Ball." 

An elapse of a few hours and we find ourselves in the "old hall" dancing to delightful music 
and laughing and talking, and trying all the latest steps (when Prof. Miller isn't looking). 
Best of all, we have made someone else happy by giving them the opportunity of remaining with 
us. ' Tis better to give than to receive." One of the year's most outstanding social events — 
the Sophomore Loan Fund Ball. 

Act III — Scene 3 

The night air is rent with noises, two horsemen gallop up and rein in before the Gym. Two 
others follow. A gun is fired. A woman screams, a man swears. There is a clinking of spurs, 
a brushing of shapps. The noise and confusion grows louder. 

(Quick Curtain) 

We view inside. What? Is this possible? Our place of harmless amusement turned into a 
wild west cabaret. A bar is seen near the entrance. Men are drinking vociferously from quart 
flasks. A jazz orchestra is banging and many are dancing. As we glance about we note that all 
are garbed in costumes of the wild west days — cowboys, ranchhands. preachers, cabaret dancers, 
broncho busters. Even girls whom we thought modest are now acting hilarious. 

Crash — Bang — Screams. A rope is twirled in the air. It falls around the neck of a fair cabaret 
dancer. A table is pulled out on the floor. She is placed upon it and mid shouts and loud laughing 
of men, the girl swings and sways to the syncopated music. 



In one corner of the room two men are playing at cards and drinking at short and regular in- 
tervals. They slap down the cards and exclaim loudly. They argue. A shot is heard. It is an- 
swered by twenty others. The air is blue. Screams from the women. 

Crash, bang! The orchestra moans, the dancers whirl, the lights go out. Screams. Can this be 
our worthy upper-classmen? Where are the chaperones? On with the dance, let joy be unrefined! 

"Let us pass the curtain of oblivion over the rest of the scene." 

Act III — Scene 4 

We step into the hall to find that all about us is green. Green light-shades, green drapes, green 
window trimmings, green dance programs. How fresh! can you guess why? The Freshies and 
Sophs have become reconciled at last, the battle is done and peace prevaileth. Perhaps they 
thought green would give a soothing effect and then it's the Freshie signal color. 

After a quarter of many hard days, and yet manv deasant ones, the Frosh disposed of their 
beloved headgear and we have heard it said not a few tears were shed at this sad parting. It 
necessitated the buying of a new hat for many. The Sophs came down from their exalted perch 
and disputes were forgotten. With this successful evening we close the reign of the Sophs and 
forget the Freshie rules. 

Act III — Scene 5 

The orchestra plays softly, the curtain rises slowly. We gaze upon two white gates leading 
into a garden. Over them old-fashioned roses grow, and as we gaze in rapture they are pulled 
open by four quaint colonial maidens in charming gowns and bonnets. Let us imagine that we 
have stepped inside and view the scene within. 

In a dimly lighted garden where flowers bloom everywhere and ferns trail their soft leaves 
about; in this place of rapture and enchantment we fain would dream our dreams of romance. 
Let us picture that two lovers of colonial days walk slowly from beneath the pillared terrace and 
noiselessly swing to the graceful minuet. Let us dream that some fairy runs out from her hiding 


place in an enormous flower pot. and to the swell of soft music, trips through this moonlit garden 
and calls upon her comrades to join her. 

And then as they vanish, the music calls us and we find ourselves impatient to dream longer. 
We glide around this garden of wonder to strains of enchanting music. Maidens in colorful and 
glittering gowns, men in suits of black and white glide by us. Delightful perfumes drift about us 
— it is as if the fairy godmother had returned to change our pumpkins into coaches, our rags to 
silks and velvets, and we are the Cinderella who wears the glass slipper and captures the Prince 
Charming. What matters that tomorrow we must again return to common life — to us now the 
outside world is oblivious — we live in dreams of the present, in an atmosphere of flowering loveli- 

The social event of the year, the Junior Prom., takes place on February 12. We congratulate the 
committee and the Junior Class upon the tremendous success of the event. 

Act III — Scene 6 
After a day of dancing and frolic, we ladies spend a good two and a half hours before the 
mirror, and after much combing, rushing, and the speaking of a few naughty words brought forth 
by the intense strain, we finally apply the last drop of brilliantine and sally forth to call on the 
handsome sheik. Oh. yes. I forgot to tell you this is Girls" Day. and tonight we must act in the 
capacity formerly occupied by the fellows. We decorate the hall with ribbons and garlands and 
dance to the strains of the famous Brienholt-Dastrup. Leave it to the girls to show the fellows a 
good time. 

I Curtain i 

We take a glimpse into the dramatic, throw the spotlight on some of our stars. Personally, we 
think we have Hollywood backed off the map when it comes to real honest-to-goodness actors and 
actresses. For instance, the Potters. Let's see if we remember. 


Act IV — Scene 1 

"Say, Mamie, I just got to take Annabelle to that dance tonight. Don't you know where Pa 
keeps his dress suit?" 

"Pa'll catch you and then you'll be dressed for your funeral. Sav, Ma. you should have seen 
that helpless lookin' dame he had with him last night. Where'd vou get that dumb Dora ;> anyway?" 

"Ma, where's the morning paper? A fellow can't find anything around this house." 

"You gentlemen go right ahead then. I'll take care of the waiter." 

"Gee, Ma, I can't sleep on that thing. I'd wake up with a permanent wave in my spine." 

"There's oil on it and its ours!" 

This was the hour when we ladies felt sorry for Bob Anderson and sighed every time we met 
De Alton. The Potters departmental play was a great dramatic success. Who said we couldn't act? 

Act IV — Scene 2 

The Seniors show off. Some say the pirates practiced a month in order to learn how to handle 
cutlasses gracefully. We noted that they did it well, anyhow. We picture a dark room, a weird 
light, and a deep voice breaks the stillness. 

"It's not my age, but this house that's ageing me." 

"I'm going out in the world and seek love, adventure, and romance." 

"Oh. Monsieur. I beg pardon. Ten thousand pounds for this so sudden intrusion." 

"Ah! ha! there's naught like good grog to warm a man's inners." 

"Hell, stir your stumps." 

"Aces, all aces." 

Captain Applejack that's what, with pirates, whiskey, and dizzy blonds. Who says the married 
men can't act? We're quite proud of our talent. What say, Steve? 

Act IV — Scene 3 

Excitement waves hot. The beauty parlors are rushed, the make-up box wields charms un- 
dreamed of. Tis ladies' night. 


And then the curtain rolls up on a bunch of perfectly commonplace boys talking about football 
and imagining that they could make Bliss look like a football coach. Say, coaches aren't gen- 
erally that handsome, it just doesn't work that way. 

"But just a moment, please." A lady makes her appearance and struts rapidly across the 
stage. What a figure! The fellows wait breathlessly,— and then what does she do but squelch us. 

"It's a pity that a lady can't walk across the campus without some of you Charlie boys getting 
new with her." She spies a handsome sheik, otherwise known as Don Lloyd and approaches him. 
"Oh, Mr, Talmage. Ma-ma says." Really, Dick, it's a shame to think the boy got away with all 
the looks. Never mind, so was your Aunt Het. It runs in the family. 

I think we could call Bill McCoard "efficient." don't you. It seems to fit the occasion. His 
way of "wishing he were a man!" was really pathetic. 

And then — look out, girls— in walks the man of hour. Glen Guymon. decked out in the most 
ravishing fashion. His father, a stern, rather vicious character, known in the "Y" News office as 
Gail, warns the authorities "to teach him anything but Botany" because of "all the idiotic sub- 
jects ever taught in school, Botany takes the plum pudding" — or something to that effect. He 
doesn't need to worry, somebody should have said. Glen always does what Father says. 

Well, to make a long story short, the College Widow, that black-eyed vamp, or in other words, 
Bony Fuller, casts a spell over him. reminds him that "your father and my father were boys to- 
gether," faints just at the right moment and they live happy ever after. 

Aside from the fact that Kenneth Handley had a hard time keeping his arms at graceful angles, 
and that Elwin Potter had a struggle covering his \dam's apple, we may say that the play was a 
tremendous success. It gave the fellows an opportunity to show us how lovely and bewitching 
they could be when they were placed in the right environment. 


Act IV — Scene 4 

Here we see the winners in the competitive play show their dramatic ability in Goldsmith's 
great drama, "She Stoops to Conquer." Once more we are entertained by Robert Anderson, sup- 
ported by Zoe Hansen, Carl Harris, Connie Osmond, Don Lloyd, and other talented members of 
the dramatic art department. The scene is laid in England at the old homestead of Mr. Hard- 
castle and involves a night of errors caused by the mischievous son of the Hardcastles,' or in 
other words, Bill McCoard. 

The play was an entire success. 

Act IV— Scene 5 

The concert master stands with uplifted baton, the curtain rolls back and we are introduced 
to the prima donnas and the Carusos of the stage. The New York Opera Company has nothing 
over on us when it comes to putting over grand opera. U Trovatore was the greatest musical suc- 
cess of the year. With such talent as Rhoda Johnson, Harvey Staheli, LeGrande Anderson, Helen 
Glazier, and Julius Madsen, it could not be otherwise. We're proud of our songbirds and look 
forward to the time when they shall again appear before us. 

January 25. Leadership Week not only gives us an opportunity to give to others what we enjoy 
daily, but to also bring before us some of the greatest men and women of our state. During the 
week the general subject was "Better Teaching of Relgion," and besides the members of our 
faculty we had the privilege of listening to such men and women as Oscar A. Kirkham, Claude 
Cornwall, Richard B. Summerhays, Harden Bennion, Anthony W. Ivins, Heber J. Grant, Adam S. 
Bennion, Susa Young Gates, and her sister Zina Young Card. They delivered many inspiring 
addreses during the week on specific subjects and also upon the general subject. 

The debating department brought Ted Baer and George Crocket of Stanford here on January 
28 to debate with Asael Lambert and Walter Clark upon the question of the freedom of the present 
generation, an amusing and clever, as well as a highly intellectual debate. 


More than two thousand visitors returned to their homes Saturday, taking with them the in- 
spiration of a wonderful week. 

(three minute intermission) 

February finds us looking forward to the Winter Carnival the date set is the 5th and 6th. 
Snow fell heavily, very likely because of the efforts put forth by Georkee and Joe. who fasted, 
prayed, and sent daily entreaties to the weather man. Lovers of the great outdoors had two jolly 
days skiing, snow-shoeing, racing, tobogganing, sliding, eating, dancing, and sleeping (a few 
hours). According to the Knicker Knocker, an enjoyable time was had by all. 

The boys on the "force"— no, this does not refer to Slim Jim— celebrate the 68th birthday of 
their director and superintendent, B. T. Higgs. The evening was spent in eating and merrymaking. 

We burn the midnight oil. An evil day approaches— March 12. The winter quarter ends. We 

visit the Attendance and Scholarship Committee. 


March 15, the Monday after the Friday before, we find ourselves back again even after wither- 
ing exams and sarcasm from the Profs.; which all goes to show that you can't keep a good man 
down. The Junior Vodie helped to raise our spirits and we compliment the Juniors upon the 
clever acting and variety of the program. 

We hear, much to our delight, that the debaters. Clark and Holbrook. are winning decisions 
continually in Montana State. The work of this department this year has been untiring and 
successful. The Irvine Oratorical contest won by Marie Hacking was an evidence of the good 
material in this phase of school life. 

Friday, the 26th. the State's foremost typists and stenographers visit us. Kichheld runs ott 
with the honors again. , , 

The Hotel Roberts is once more the scene of excitement when the girls hold the annual ban- 
quet on Saturday, March 27. We discuss a most vital and entertaining topic— how to court. 



Louise Engar acts as toastmistress. Some very valuable information is given out, very educational 
—it really should be broadcasted. It seems like no matter what we do the boys must enter in, 
superficially or otherwise. Ain't girls funny jiggers, anyway? 

The Block Y Club and the Alpha Delia Commerce Fraternity begin their initiations and it 
actually makes us blush to think about it. Personally, we think Dick Thorne and Snowball 
Worthington should quit this school flat. They don't belong here. They should enlist their serv- 
ices with Flo Ziegfield and make stars of themselves. You don't find figures like they possess 
every day. Ah, well, they say clothes make the man. 

Seven days pass by and it still rains, but there's always an end to everything and on April 13 
we whitewash the "Y" and dig trenches on Maeser Hill. Blistered hands and aching backs played 
an important part, but we felt proud of them, nevertheless. "Y" Day was a great success this 
year. The fellows worked harder than they have done any previous year, according to members 
of the faculty. The girls cooked the "eats." 

Spring has come, at last, there is more than one evidence. The stores begin to order tennis 
shoes and everybody's talking about the prospects for a winning tennis team. We have' all the 
old stars back, Buck and Sank Dixon. Knight Allen, Kimball Mcintosh, Lee Buttle, and Max 

The high schools meet at the inter-high school track and relay carnival held on t-he "Y" field. 
The girls also get the athletic spirit and indulge in a day of sports on the hill. 

The politicians proceed to show us how sweet a disposition may be developed for a short 
time, at least. The White and Blue parties wage war. The battle ends to show Holbrook and 
Thompson the victors. 

After a year of hard work, more or less, a few of our notorieties receive their honors in the 
form of various awards. 



And now as the end draws near and we look carefully over the situation, we feel that we have 
failed to give mention to one of the most important— not to say strenous activities of the year. 
There is not a student in the University but is not well acquainted with all the arts and sciences 
of his particular activity. It is carried on regularly, all hours of the day in a place once known 
as a most respectable study room. Let us glance for a moment into this rendezvous and view some 
of its most noted haunters. 

Act V — Scene 1 
Time— Any old time. Place— The hall of learning, the place of our affection, Room "D." 

As the curtain rises we see a large room with rows of desks running west to east. Some 
Students have already arrived and are seated, studying (for it is yet early). On the right are 
swinging doors, further on a now deserted desk. We trust you have the atmosphere. A bell is 
heard. The doors begin to swing. 

Enter: "Dad" Ross. In one hand he carries a brown brief case, containing no doubt, a text- 
book of accounting, a rare old treatise on the psychology of women, and the latest copy of "Life. 
He sits down. Four girls rapidly gather around. What for? My dear, we are about to listen to a 
famous discourse on the philosophy of love and courtship, and all that goes with it. That s where 
this young gentleman gets his name— his varied experience and inexhaustive knowledge. And 
mind you, it has nothing to do with age. He's the confidant of all the girls, and the idol of 
many a maidenly heart. 

But wait — the door swings. 

Enter: Florence Adams; "0 dancing sprite, an image gay, to haunt, to startle and waylay." 
She sits down after attracting a good deal of attention. A tall freshman, recently arrived from 
the wilds of Uintah, in other words, Earl Marshall, immediately and automatically moves up and 
begins to talk with her. 

The doors swing. Enter: Guess. Tall, dark, solitary athlete, (have forgotten his number in 
the Rogue's Gallery). Initials: L. B — and to his memory we lovingly dedicate the once popular 
air, "Lonesome, But I Have My Eyes on Someone." 

(Shrill laughter is heard off-stage. Someone is talking loudly). Enter: Phyllis Adams. % We 
are reminded of a verse from Kipling: "She's a daisy, she's a ducky, she's a lamb She s an 
Indian-rubber idiot on a spree; she's the only thing that doesn't give a dam what happens to 
the B. Y. faculty." 

Sweet music reaches our ears. We wait expectantly. Enter: Leda Bradford. "The man who 
hath no music in his soul, nor is not moved by concord of sweet sound"— Yes, practice makes 
perfect, nor are great heights attained in a few hours. 

Someone bustles in— a famous palmist. Madame Rachel Holbrook. She sees all. hears all. 
knows all. For personal interview call the Student Body office. Confessions held in strictest 

At this point we are interrupted by the entrance of the cutest boy in school— a man of caliber 
—Gam Webb. Although very young, he practically has his education, being well versed upon 
the latest from "Life." "Judge," and various other periodicals sold by the "Y" Drug. And then, 
of course, it runs in the family. 

Enter: Ruth Bennion, Lois Rockhill. Norma Hughes, Helen McArthur. One and inseparable. 
United we stand, divided we fall. "Thrilled to distraction" is a term which might be well applied 
hereto. Always sighing over a new "find." 

The onlooker will kindly note that the disturbance caused in the northwest corner is the result 
of propaganda spread by John Peterson, famous show-off. Rolled hose, wrist watches, flashy 
neckties, and the latest "line," a specialty. 

Ah well kids will be kids, and we love 'em all. The Seniors are the unlucky ones— they must 
bid farewell to all this and all that has once been. We wish them success, achievement, happi- 
ness; theirs to go on and win; and we wait expectantly, look forward impatiently to the day when 
the cap and gown of honor shall be ours. 

The light grows brighter, the orchestra plays softly the final notes that tell the end of a suc- 
cessful year. The curtain falls slowly.

The Y News 

"The Y News," official organ of the B. Y. U. student body, has a varied history 
attached to its name. The first periodical published by the students was known as 
"The Pedagogium," which made its appearance in about the eighteenth year of the 
school's organization. Out of this grew "The Normal," and "The White and Blue." 
The last named paper was a combination newspaper and literary magazine, until the 
year 1921, when "The White and Blue" became the literary magazine and the news- 
paper was published weekly as "The Y News." 

The aim of the editor this year, has been to give the students a digest of student 
body activities through the columns of "The Y News," and to use the paper as a 
means for expression of constructive student opinions on affairs pertaining to student 
body welfare. An efficient business staff has aided in making the paper a success- 
ful publication. 

A new plan of organization of the staff was adopted with success. The usual 
routine of choosing the staff members was used at which forty-five contestants tried 
tor places. Each individual selected has had opportunity for development in every 
department of the paper. Reorganization of the staff offices at given intervals has 
made this possible. While the news has been presented in a creditable manner 
throughout the year, each departemnt was edited by various staff members. 

"The Y News" has been an important factor in the welding of a united student

The Banyan 

The Golden Anniversary Edition of the Banyan is merely an attempt to record and 
place before the students of Brigham Young University in the most pleasing manner 
within reach of our means and our ability the choicest bits of our college life. The 
fiftieth birth-year of our school has indeed been a rich one, and has made possible 
this enlarged edition of the Banyan. The attempt has been made to carry the his- 
torical or Pioneer theme throughout the book, however feeble our attempt may ap- 
pear — the book itself can be its only argument. 

It is hoped that as the leaves of this publication become soiled with use that the 
,oy that will come from looking over its contents as the events and faces become ever 
-nore precious with time will be at least equal to the joy the builders of this volume 
have had in this little service to their fellow students of Brigham Young University.

A. W. S. 

The Associated Women Students of the Brigham Young University was organ- 
ized in 1922, and became affiliated with the National A. W. S. at that time. The pur- 
pose of the association is to unite the interests of the women students throughout the 
universities and to promote a feeling of comradeship among the girls of the B. Y. U. 

A national convention of the A. W. S. is held annually. Inez Warnick, president- 
elect, and Dean Nettie Smart were delegates to the meeting held at Los Angeles, Cali- 
fornia. Problems of the organization are discussed and plans are formulated which 
aid the representatives in leading the local associations. 

The "Group" method of organizing the girls was instituted this year in place of 
the "Little Sister" method as previously used. The new plan was found to be a more 
complete and effective procedure, as the responsibility of the group is equally divided 
among the Senior, Junior, and Sophomore girls of each unit, instead of the "Big 
Sister" being the soul sponsor of her Fershmen girls. 

The Girls' Annual Banquet, Girls' Jamboree, and Girls' Day were special activi- 
ties fostered by the A. W. S. The women students were guests at a reception given by 
the Faculty Women at the home of Mrs. C. E. Maw. 

The A. W. S. offers the girls of the institution a field for versatile development, 
through a varied program. For this reason the A. W. S. is one of the most influential 
associations at the B. Y. U.

Public Service Bureau 

Brigham Young University fosters the slogan, "Training for Service." The Public 
Service Bureau is a potential factor in presenting opportunities for service, thereby 
being a part of the training process. 

Since 1919, when the Bureau was organized, the Public Service Bureau has re- 
sponded to calls from wards, clubs, socials and schools, supplying each call with a 
program, the performers being students of Brigham Young University. 

The purpose of the Public Service Bureau is two-fold: service to patrons and 
friends of the University, and to give the students a channel for expression, making 
possible the development one receives by doing. 

One hundred and sixty-five programs have been presented under the auspices of 
the Bureau this year in which over two hundred students have participated. 

As the demand for Public Service Bureau programs continues to increase, greater 
and more will be the opportunities afforded the students to give expressions to their 
talents which might otherwise be only latent. True education comes in the develop- 
ment of native powers. With this in mind we readily come to the conclusion that 
the Public Service Bureau is a real factor in the education of the individual for it 
provides the possibility for developing and expressing the finest of our inherent

Stanford University Debate 

The most refreshing and at the same time instructive debate of the season was the 
Stanford versus B. Y. U. debate held at Provo the last night of Leadership Week. 

The question, the debaters, and the audience left little to be desired. 

The Stanford men, Mr. Baer and Mr. Crocker, charmed the large audience with 
their clever presentation of the question, "Resolved, That the younger generation's new 
ireedom in thot and action is detrimental to society." The visitors, who had the 
affirmative, attempted to show that the "new freedom" is responsible in a large meas- 
ure for the alarming disregard for law, and the breaking down of church and home 
life; making the home, as they expressed it,"a mere telephone booth surrounded by 
sleeping rooms." 

The Y team, composed of Walter Clark, and A. C. Lambert, pointed out with 
unanswerable logic that the younger generation's freedom in thought and action 
has been and always will be responsible for progression. While admitting there were 
minor features which might be termed undesirable, they maintained that the good 
so outweighed the bad as to make the "modern freedom" beneficial to society. 

It was a no-decision contest.

B. Y. U. vs. U. of U. at Salt Lake City 

Brigham Young University lost to the University of Utah in the debate on the 
question, "Resolved: That the action of the House of Representatives relative to the 
reduction of the Federal Income Tax should be enacted into Law." Glen Rowe and 
Raymond Holbrook of Brigham Young attempted to show that the proposed reduction 
was impractical and unjust. 

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

The 1926 income tax law was defended by Sherman Christensen and John Clarke 
of the Y against the attack of the Utah Aggie debaters. Apparently the defense was 
not wholly successful for Professor Lewis of the University of Utah, the single 
adjudicator, gave the decision to the visiting team. The contest was hotly contested 
and closely attended by an interested audience. 

The Montana Trip 

Walter Clark and Raymond B. Holbrook, accompanied by Dr. Christen Jensen, 
chairman of the debate council, invaded Montana and brought back two victories 
out of a possible two. 

On Monday night, March 15th, they debated Inter Mountain Union at Helena, 
when they were successful in convincing all three judges that their position was mort 
ably defended. 

The following night they met Montana State College at Bozeman. This was their 
more difficult contest, but they were victorious. The child labor question was used 
in both debates.

University of Wyoming Debate 

Laramie, Wyoming 

On March twenty-second a debating team composed of Oscar M. Lyman and A. 
Sherman Christensen engaged a University of Wyoming team in an open-forum 
discussion of the child-labor question. 

The "cowboys" advocated federal regulation of child-labor, claiming that thru 
such regulation the national government could cooperate with the state governments 
in the fight against the child labor evil. The Provo men maintained that federal 
regulation is unnecessary because the states are already solving the problem; and 
further, that because of the nature of the child-labor problem and the nature of our 
government, federal regulation would be undesirable. 

Professor Elmer Miller, of the council of debate, accompanied the debaters to 


B. Y. U. vs. University of California 

The University of Southern California is usually represented by strong and well- 
balanced debating teams. This year's traveling team which appeared here March 14th 
was no exception. It was maintained by some that the California men were the 
strongest debaters to appear upon the local platform since the B. Y. U. versus Prince- 
ton debate of 1921. 

At any rate the arguments over the proposition, "Resolved: That war should be 
declared by a direct vote of the people except in cases of invasion or rebellion," was 
interesting and illuminating. Mr. Walter E. Clark and Mr. Raymond B. Holbrook 
defended the affirmative of the resolution for the Y, in creditable manner. No de- 
cision was made. 

B. Y. U. vs. College of the Pacific 

"Resolved: That Congress should be granted the power to regulate child labor" 
was the question for the very interesting debate between Brigham Young University 
and the College of the Pacific. Glen Rowe and Clifton Moffit, defending the affirma- 
tive, lost to the experienced Pacific team by a two to one decision. The debate was 
close, the outcome being doubtful until the final decision was read.

Women's Triangle Debates 

In line with the general trend towards the English System, the Women's Triangle 
debates this year were conducted on the no-decision plan. The ansence of judges 
did not seem to make the debates less interesting; but rather tended to bring the 
debaters in closer contact with the audiences. 


The Misses Margaret Swenson, Rachel Holbrook, and Esther Eggertsen met a 
women's team from the Agricultural College at Logan on the following question: 
"Resolved, that the United States should adopt a uniform system of marriage and 
divorce laws." The Y upheld the negative. 

The Logan debaters called attention to the variety of state marriage and divorce 
laws; and the ineffectiveness of even rigid state laws because of "divorce traffic" to 
states having low standards. They maintained that federal control of marriages and 
divorces would solve the problem. 

The Y debaters divided their attack on federal regulation into three issues: 

1. The social nature of the question minimizes the importance of legislation. 

2. The states are better qualified than the national government to regulate mar- 
riage and divorce. 

3. Greater evils would result from national control than from state control. 
It was a high class contest. 


Federal Regulation of marriage and divorce was advocated by a women's team 
composed of Eva Wilson, Jewel Linebaugh, and Ethel Lowry. They maintained that 
thru federal regulation alone could the evils resulting from unwise marriages and 
unnecessary divorces be done away with. 

The debate was informal and interesting. 




William F. Hanson 
Head of Music Department 

Melvin Brimhall 
Student Manager of Music 

Music Department 

"Since the dawn of the race, music has been recognized as one of the foremost factors in 
civilization and refinement. Its influence has gone far in the uplifting of humanity. It is one of 
the choicest gifts of God to man. 

"Music enriches life, and adds beauty to the world. In the home circle it binds closer the 
bonds of love and affection. It brings contentment and happiness, and it throws about the fireside 
a protection against many of the evils which creep into modern life. It keeps the boys and girls 
at home. It directs their thoughts into wholesome channels, and stores their minds with thoughts 
for the good. 

"To the community music is ever helpful. It promotes good will and fellowship. It engenders 
uplift and encourages true culture. By its love for and appreciation of music a commonwealth 
can be largely judged." — Deseret News. 

Realizing the value of music in the lives of people and in promoting the well being of a 
community, Brigham Young was zealous in encouraging its development among the pioneers. He 
secured the best talent available to direct the music of the church and did everything possible 
to stimulate an appreciation for the best in this art. Some of the great masterpieces in oratorio, 
opera, and orchestra were presented in the pioneer days; and music became one of the chief sources 
of entertainment. It is no wonder then that we find music playing so important a part in our 
school life today. With the back-ground of music appreciation as established and fostered by 
Brigham Young and his followers, we could hardly expect to find it otherwise in the school 
that bears his name. 

Brigham Young University has always been noted for its superior music department and this 
year has been no exception. Under the able direction of Professor William Hanson, some very 
creditable things have been done. Starting with a "bang" at the beginning of the year, the Music 
Department has been very active in providing a large variety of programs and concerts for de- 
votional and other exercises throughout the year. 

The five choruses have been combined into one large chorus on several occasions; and at 
Christmas time this large choir of two hundred and fifty voices rendered very successfully the 
sacred cantata "The King Cometh" in the Utah Stake Tabernacle. 

The vocal and instrumental contests were events long to be remembered for the high order of 
musicianship that characterized them. Besides the medals offered by patrons of the school, schol- 
arships were given in vocal, piano, violin, and cornet by members of the Music Faculty to the 
winners of these contests. 

Vocal and instrumental recitals were given by students of Music Faculty members which dis- 
played talent that is rarely found in a school the size of Brigham Young University. 

In summing up the Music Department as a whole we can unflatteringly compliment its faculty 
on the achievements attained. From small ward programs to the more pretentious undertaking 
of producing Verdi's most popular grand opera, "II Trovatore," success has crowned each endeavor. 


Scenes from "// Trovatore" 

[ 159 ] 

The Competitive Opera 

The greatest achievement of the Music Department during the year was the production of 
Verdi's "II Trovatore." This was the first grand opera attempted at Brigham Young University by 
students; and naturally, it seemed very presumptuous. Notwithstanding the opposition voiced by 
many at the outset. Professor Hanson courageously held out in his opinion that it could be suc- 
cessfully produced by the students; and after the try-outs all doubts were dispelled. The whole- 
souled and untiring effort put forth by Professor Hanson was an inspiration to the members of the 
cast, and together they worked harmoniously sacrificing many pleasures in order to make the 
opera a success. Individualistic "starring" was lost in the splendid team-work which character- 
ized the efforts of the cast and as a result it was difficult to pick out any outstanding performer. 
They were all excellent. 

The opera was produced twice in College Hall before capacity houses, once in Spanish Fork, 
and once in American Fork. The principal characters sang choice bits from the opera over Radio 
station KSL from Salt Lake City and many appearances were made before various clubs and 
social organizations in and about Provo.

The Band 

Starting the year out right by being awarded a silver loving cup and two hundred 
and fifty dollars cash prize for winning first place in the State Band Contest at the 
State Fair in October, our band has had an unusually successful year. 

During the month of November the band toured northern Utah and Idaho, giving 
successful concerts in the most important towns along the way. Since then a number 
of exceptionally fine concerts and entertainments have been given in College Hall 
and for the City of Provo, creating a very favorable impression among the students 
and citizens of Provo. During the spring quarter a trip was taken into southern Utah 
which proved very successful. 

We are proud of our band as we are of our other musical organizations, but the 
band occupies a unique place in student activity which it only can fill. 

When student spirit ebbs low as an opposing team gains some advantage it is the 
band that stirs us to renewed courage and spurs the team on to increased effort. The 
tide of many a game has been turned into victory by the stirring strains of a rousing 

It is doubtful that another college band in America can be found that has won so 
much distinction as has the Brigham Young University Band and the name of Robert 
Sauer as its director is closely linked with its achievements. 



The Brigham Young University Concert Orchestra created a profound impression 
and made tor itself a secure place in the hearts of the music lovers of the community 
when it gave its initial concert in the Stake Tabernacle in the autumn. The first 
movement of Schubert's Unfinished Symphony, "Dance of the Hours" from "La 
Gioconda," and Elgar's "Pomp and Circumstance" were the outstanding orchestral 
numbers on the program. Mr. J. W. McAllister, tenor, was the soloist and sang in 
splendid style, "My Jean" by Mr. Robertson and "Holy Night" by Adam, the or- 
chestra accompanying both numbers. 

During Leadership Week the orchestra furnished a program for the visitors. Max 
Thomas, cornetist, was the soloist. 

At the early spring concert, Wm. R. Lym of the Cleveland Symphony was fea- 
tured as soloist on the English Horn and Oboe. The orchestra gave an especially 
good interpretation of Mr. Robertson's "Valse Brilliante" and the "Mignon Overture" 
by Thomas. 

The final program of the year was given in May in conjunction with the Young 
Gleemen. By request "Valse Brilliante" was repeated. The orchestra also gave good 
account of itself in the popular overture, "The Merry Wives of Windsor" by Nicoali. 
The Young Gleemen and orchestra together gave an impressive rendition of Tosti's 
"Good bye." 

Every member of the Orchestra has worked diligently toward the Symphonic ideal. 
As a whole the organization has proved that Brigham Young LIniversity can maintain 
an instrumental ensemble that is worthy to interpret many of the master overtures 
and symphonies. 

This year the orchestra has been under the baton of Professor LeRoy J. Robertson 
whose fine sense of musicianship has been injected into all of his work, resulting in 
finished and professional like performances.

Male Glee Club 

The Male Glee Club, under the direction of Professor Hanson, gave several suc- 
cessful concerts during the year. As well as appearing in College Hall they per- 
formed in several of the surrounding towns, creating very favorable impressions on 
the part of all who heard them. 

Ladies' Glee Club 

The Ladies' Glee Club appeared to good advantage in concert and program num- 
bers during the year. The organization was well balanced, having a membership of 
thirty-six of the best female voices in school. Their work was always melodious and

Young Gleemen 

Of all music there are perhaps no sweeter harmonies than those produced by a 
good male glee club. In order to increase interest in this sort of music and to stimu- 
late a keener appreciation for it, the club known as the Young Gleemen was organ- 
ized. It consists of sixteen voices admitted to membership on a competitive basis. 
This insures an organization of the best male voices in school. The club has existed 
this year independent of the Music Department but the excellent services of Professor 
Le Roy Robertson of the Music Faculty were secured to direct it. 

The constitution governing the club was drawn up in such a way as to perpetuate 
the organization through succeeding years and there is no question but that next year 
some very wonderful concerts will be given by it. This year effort has been con- 
centrated on building up a repertoire and in blending the voices and not until May 
17th was the initial performance given. This was given in connection with the B. 
Y. U. Concert Orchestra in College Hall before a large and very appreciative audi- 
ence. It was a great success and resulted in many invitations for subsequent appear-

Student Manager of Dramatics 

The Dramatic Art Department 

Four major productions were successfully presented by the Dramatic Art Depart- 
ment under the direction and supervision of T. Earl Pardoe. 

"The Potters," an amusing portrayal of modern family life, launched the dramatic 
season. "Ma" Potter, coveting the Rankins luxuries, and "Pa" Potter's attempt to 
gratify her wishes, develop the major theme of the play. A love story with its thrills 
and pathos is cleverly woven through the plot. One of the features of the depart- 
ment plays this year has been the large number of participants. "The Potters" in- 
cluded a cast of forty members. 

The unique performance of the year's entertainments was the first annual all- 
boys production, "The College Widow." The cast was chosen "a la Shakespeare," 
e. i., the cast was composed entirely of men. A debonair college widow was con- 
cocted from one of the sterner sex. The athletic girl, Bessie Tanner, would have 
been mistaken for any college flapper, as far as appearance was concerned. 

The all-boys play as an annual event is welcomed as a yearly fun-fiesta. Profes- 
sor Pardoe is already making plans for a similar production next year. 

Oliver Goldsmith's greatest play, "She Stoops to Conquer," was chosen as the 
student body competitive play. This production was the most difficult of all of the 
plays attempted, but was unusually capably presented. The quaint costumes of the 
period were charming, and the clever dialogue made the play doubly interesting. 

The Senior Play, "Captain Applejack," directed by Camille Crandall and Libbie 
Cook, under Professor Pardoe's supervision, was presented to a house filled to ca- 
pacity. The subtle humor and mystery met with popular approval. Ambrose Apple- 
john and his romantic, fanciful ideas caused the development of complications which 
make the play what it is. 

In addition to the more important productions, numerous one act plays were 
given by the Play Production Class. A drama library was begun in the Little Theatre. 

Professor Pardoe has outlined many new features to be instituted in the depart- 
ment. The department is increasing in size, an indication of its popularity, proving 
that "the play's the thing."

The Celebrity Contest 

Beauty was indeed noticeably abundant at Brigham \ oung Lniversity 
this vear. The result of the announcement for candidates for the Banvan 
celebrity contest was that more than twenty petitions for the most beautiful 
lady contest were handed in. And anyone could be justly proud of the 
array of beauty chosen to be representative of "the best we have." 

From those for whom petitions were handed in. six were chosen by the 
popular vote of the student body. The six chosen were run in the contest 
during the sales week of the Banyans. The number of votes to be given 
was based on the amount paid by the voter on a Banyan. In this manner, 
the three represented here were chosen. They appear in order of the stu- 
dents' choice. 

The response was equally as strong for the other part of the contest. For 
both popular lady and popular man. a great number of petitions were handed 
in from which three of each were chosen in the same manner as the six 
most beautiful ladies were chosen. From the three most popular men and 
the three most popular ladies, the most popular lady. Carol Dunn, and the 
most popular man, Ezra Taft Benson, were chosen on the basis of the 
amount paid on Banyans. 

The contest this year was distinctive in that the men folks in the school, 
because of their success in taking the parts of the more dainty kind, became 
boastful of their beauty and popularity as well. The result was that Sister 
"Jane" "Bony" Fuller was run in the contest for most beautiful lady and 
Sister "Flora" Dick Thorne for most popular lady, whose pictures have been 
reserved for the Bunyon 'page 280 l . 

Another unique feature of the contest was that moving pictures were 
taken of each of the contestants and thrown on the screen throughout sales 
week at each show at the Strand Theatre. The fortunate result of the two 
unique features of the contest was that enthusiastic interest was taken 
throughout the contest making it among the most successful contests ever

C iach Eugene L. Roberts 

Coach Charles J. Hart 

The Coaching Staff 

In looking over the athletic history of the Brigham Young University there is one 
name that is outstanding. There is hardly a phase of physical development that does 
not have back of it the name of Coach E. L. Roberts. The invitation meet and relay 
carnival, and the Timpanogos hike are two of the traditions which he has founded, 
cultured and raised into institutions of fame throughout the Rocky Mountains. 

Under his direction, football in the Church school was reborn after a two-decade 
discontinuation. In four years he has developed a football team that is rated among 
the first five in the conference. Clinton Larsen, Alma Richards, in the high jump; 
Lyman Brown, in the distance events, and Dave Pearce in the sprints, are products of 
this institution and of Roberts of which we can long be proud. 

The success the public sees in a coaching staff is the winning of games, but the 
real goal every true coach strives for is to instill in the hearts of his own men and 
the minds of the opposing aggregations, that, after all. the great thing that counts is 
to treat the other fellow square. 

The men not only obtain the valuable experience of the contest, but when they 
emerge from the institution thev carry with them a rich portion of sportsmanship, for 
which no one of them would exchange millions. 

Working in close co-operation with Director Roberts is "Chick" Hart, a graduate 
of the Utah Agricultural College, and formerly director of the Smith-Hughes project 
work and coach in the Teton High School. 

In his college work, Hart was outstanding as a track man and football player, and 
was familiar with the other sports by association. His best work this year has proba- 
bly been done in these two lines of competition, as is shown by the improved status 
of Young University as a track and football school.

General History of Athletics 

The Brigham Young University was born fifty years ago, and from that time until 
a decade ago, an unbreakable foundation was laid. Ten years ago, or less, a new 
life pervaded the institution; a period of growth seized upon it; buildings were built; 
and football, the greatest of all collegiate competition, was reborn. 

Great, too, has been the growth of the institution in physical achievement. Al- 
though Brigham Young has not taken every title awarded, or possibly even her 
share, it is true that this school has been a potent factor in bringing forth the supreme 
efforts of the opposition. 

For two years the White and Blue were the holders of the state basketball title, 
and one of these years succeeded in taking the conference championship. The dope- 
sters all favored awarding the third consecutive title to the Cougar lair, but they did 
not consider that shrewd man from the North. 

The season started brilliantly, Young taking the first series of contests. Then the 
disappointments began. First Romney brought his Farmers down and split up a 
series; then we went to Bozeman and were chewed up twice by the Bobcats. Utah 
came to Provo and split up another series. The standings then showed that the only 
hope for the Cougars was to take both games at Logan. They went north with that 
intention, and took the first game decisively. They started to do the same on the 
second, but something went wrong and in the last half the Aggies overtook the lead 
and won, robbing Young of the Western Division title and possibly the conference 

Young's fighting spirit avenged her when the Bobcats came down here for the 
final series of the season, by taking with ease, both contests. This gave the Cougars 
a tie for the state title, but the Aggies took the conference division title by virtue of 
their three out of four wins over the Bozeman squad. 

One group of consistent training, unnoticed, and uncheered group of men, work- 
ing faithfully from the opening of school until the state meet, brought to Young the 
only championship won by the school during the entire year. This group was the

Mat activities this season also gave Young somewhat of a name in the Western 
sport realm. In a dual meet at the opening of the season, the Cougars scored 
twenty points to seven against Utah, and in the division meet, Young placed second, 
scoring nine and one-half points. The Aggies scored fourteen and one-half points, 
Utah scored three points, and Montana failed to score. 

Because of the lack of diversified material, the track season scores do not repre- 
sent much of a showing, but from the standpoint of scores alone. A careful analysis 
will show that from the little southern school some of the best track men of the con- 
ference have been developed this year. Brigham Young invariably had high-point 
man in the state and dual meets, and the same man came very nearly placing high 
in the conference meet. A quarter-miler and half-miler. a weight man. and a high 
jumper, all of conference caliber, have been discovered in the greenling class of the 

The first annual spring cross-countrv run, under the direction of the Physical 
Education Department, was taken by "Frosty" Richards, the man who took the fall 
run, also. The winner of this race is awarded a student body block "Y." 

the tennis season brought to us a situation and a result directly comparable to 
the basketball season. The team had held the title for two years, and with the same 
men back, with one or two exceptions, it looked as though it would be a clean sweep, 
but after a hard fought battle the Utes took the title. 

After all. it is not, "Did you win?" but, "how did you play?" This season has 
shown the Cougars to be as scrappy and as clean sports as there are in the confer- 



The idea of building a Stadium on the west slope of Maeser Hill was conceived 
in 1923. Both the Class of '23 and that of '24 made the Stadium their project, which 
of course gave the movement considerable momentum at the outset. The donations 
of both of these classes were very liberal. 

Again, the Class of '26 made the commencement of the track and field phase of 
the work their project; and their contribution, too, was a very substantial one. The 
movement has been generously reinforced by regular contributions from the Students' 
Supply Association. The net proceeds from the Association have probably been the 
largest financial factor in promoting the movement. 

The site upon which considerable work has been done is indeed an outstanding 
situation for the construction of a Stadium. Many visitors of stadia have declared 
the site to be one of the most beautiful in the country. The view of the mountains 
and the lake can not be easily duplicated anywhere in the land. 

But perhaps the most promising feature of the site is its economic adaptation to 
the purpose of building a Stadium. Nature could hardly have planned a site on 
which so little work is necessary. 

No, the Stadium is not a mere passing dream. The idea has come to stay. Al- 
ready a considerable portion of the work has been done. The drainage system has 
been put in, and the work of clearing the site is in operation now. It is probable 
that with two more classes making the Stadium their project, combined with the 
great deal of work that can be done by the students themselves, the project will 
be completed.

"Buck" Dixon, who leaves this year after a most active athletic career. 

"Buck" Dixon 

"Buck" leaves us this vear. For four years in four sports he has 
fought to bring honors to the "Y." In this time he has garnered 
fifteen letters and many victories. An outstanding figure on the 
grid, the waxed floor and the courts during these years of competi- 
tion, his sportsmanship, his brilliance and his consistent game have 
won for him the enviable place in the athletic hall of fame. The 
name of Fred "Buck" Dixon heads the list of "Y" athletes.

Captain Edwin "Tuggle" Kimball 

Captain-elect Richard "Dick'' 

"Eddie" Kimball 

The success of this year's team of grid athletes was due considerable to the good 
example which was placed before the team by their captain, "Eddie" Kimball. "Play 
the game and keep still about it," seemed to be the motto adopted by the helmsman of 
the eleven. It is not what a captain can say that does the trick. But the kind that 
say their words by doing the right thing at the right time and having all kinds of 
sportsmanship throughout all contests are the ones who will make the spirit of the 
game just a little higher than it was when they entered. And this, after all, is the 
duty of the captain. "Eddie" comes to us from Jordan High School. In 1922 he 
took the position of end on the Frosh team. It only took him one year to convince 
those who watched that he was a "son of the sod." He has been in football ever since 
then and the last year of his career he was captain of his crew, the ambition of all 
who enter the sport. Being a friend to the whole team and demanding a respect 
which prompted all to follow, made Eddie one of the Cougars' most successful cap- 

Captain Elect Thorne 

Although he is only a Junior next year, the captain-elect of the 1926 football 
squad has made a very enviable record. With four years of high school experience 
at the Springville High School, one year of Freshman football and one year of 
varsity experience, he seems to be well-fitted to lead the squad through a very suc- 
cessful season. 

In addition to his football experience, he has been the cheermaster for the past 
year, and was assistant cheermaster in 1924. 

Because of his genial, cheerful attitude toward all of the fellows wherever he goes, 
and because of his manly fighting spirit, Dick is well armed to lead the Cougar 
eleven through a greater football battle than B. Y. U. has yet had. 


Varsity Football 

The B. Y. U. entered its fourth year of conference football favored by critics to 
grace either the bottom or next to the bottom berth in the percentage column. A 
determination and fighting spirit to gain a place among the conference elevens, which 
would demand at least some recognition, took hold of the men. 

The Cougars had a hard schedule to meet. No easv early season games nor non- 
conference contests had been arranged. The Big Blue Team had to break into com- 
petition with a team playing its third game. Within four weeks the Cougars met the 
three strongest teams in the conference. With the difficulties of the schedule thor- 
oughly in mind, the coaches and men set to work to put the "Y" on the football map. 

Complete reorganization of the coaching staff added interest to the sport. Coach 
Roberts, while not a football player of much renown, was expected to build the 
finest team the school had ever had. People everywhere recognized the coaching 
ability of this man. And with the assistance of Charles J. Hart, one of the finest 
players the conference has ever produced, sport fans expected much of the "Y." 

The coaches returned from a summer in the east where they spent twelve weeks 
studying football. Thy introduced a new style of play in the school: a style so dis- 
tinct in the conference that soon it became known as the "Roberts-Hart System." 

With but three weeks practice in which to adjust to the new system of the coaches, 
the B. Y. U. team began its greatest football vear.

B. Y. IL, 7; C. A. C., 21 

The Youngsters entrained on October 8th for Fort Collins, where on October 10th 
they met the strong Colorado Aggies. During most of the first half the Aggies had 
the ball deep in the Y territory. The Cougar backs were unable to penetrate the 
C. A. C. line for any sort of gains. With the exception of a few splendid end-runs 
by Dixon, the Y failed to make any noticeable gains. In each quarter of this half 
the Aggies put themselves in position by forward passes and then scored on an off- 
tackle buck. 

The third quarter saw the Y at its best. The Blue Team held their opponents 
in their own territory most of the time; and with a series of beautiful forward passes 
succeeded in getting into position, and Dixon scored on a line buck. 

Colorado had the edge in the fourth quarter. At the end of the game the Cougars 
were marching down the field via the forward pass route. A poor catch of a perfect 
pass to a man all alone kept the Y from scoring. 

The Cougars were clearly outclassed by the polished machine which the Aggies 
sent against them. Later results, however, made the Y's work against them very 
spectacular. The Aggies defeated every other team they met and won the conference

B. Y. U., 7; C. of C, 6 

The Colorado College eleven came to Provo for the annual Founder's Day game 
on October 17th. The game was played before a large crowd of alumni and friends. 

No team held any distinct advantage at any time. It was a game between the 
fine open field work of the Cougars and the hard and fast line play of the Tigers. 
Early in the game Captain Kimball got his arm severely wrenched and was replaced 
by Worthington. On his first play Worthington snatched a pass which a Tiger 
back attempted to ground and raced twenty-five yards for a touchdown. 

During the remainder of the game the Y was very ineffective against the strong 
Tiger line. Colorado College, however, made several first downs and finally suc- 
ceeded in scoring a touchdown on an end run. 

Colorado College presented one of the finest lines met by the Cougars during the 
whole year. Their close defense was the feature of their play. Brown, captain and 
quarterback, was the greatest ground gainer in the game. The forward passing and 
end running of Dixon and the splendid defense and offense of Howard at tackle 
were features of the Y's playing. 


U. A. C, 14; B. Y. U., 

On October 24th the Cougars visited the fields of the Farmers at Logan; and 
returned with some experience but no score. 

As a result of two beautifully executed forward passes the Farmers succeeded in 
putting over two touchdowns and one goal. The Y were not outplayed as much as 
the score would indicate. 

faring most of the game the ball was in the center of the field. Several rallies 
and rushes of the Y were stopped just in time to prevent them from scoring. The Y 
defense stiffened on two critical occasions and held the Farmers when a score seemed 

The defense presented by the Aggies seemed to puzzle the Youngsters during the 
entire game. Dixon's end runs and a few of Knudsen's line bucks were effective 
against the Aggie line. It was the Y forward passing game which proved most effec- 
tive, and could possibly have been used more to an advantage. 

The work of Leddingham and Thomas of the Aggies was very outstanding. Dixon 
was the Y's big ground gainer. It was in this game that Knudsen first found himself. 


. U. OF U., 27; B. Y. U., 

October 31st brought the Utes from Salt Lake. The U smashed, passed, and 
kicked themselves to a decisive victory. It seemed that the Cougars were completely 
at a loss to meet the Utes' maneuvers during the first half. 

In the third quarter the Cougars rallied and held their ferocious opponents score- 
less while they came within scoring distance on two occasions. 

In the first play of the game two men were knocked out. Hinckley, the scrappv 
Y center, was fallen on and received internal injuries which confined him to bed for 
several weeks. Taufer, the big Utah end, received a verv bad tear on the hand. 

After Taufer's removal it was a show with the leading actor, the versatile "Cal" 
Boberg. He punted, dropkicked, passed, and ran with the ball in a way which has 
seldom been seen on the Y campus. 

The Y had no outstanding performer. It was a team of eleven men fighting 
doggedly to stop a highly perfected and polished machine. 

[201 J 

B. Y. U., 39; W. S., 6 

With a determination seldom equaled, to upset the dope and trample the Cougars 
under, the Western States team came into Provo on November 7th. 

This team presented many tactics which were new to the Provoites. On straight 
football the Y was the whole show, and this was the only method on which they were 
sure of gaining. Forward passing honors, particularly for the first half, went to the 
Western Staters. Several beautiful passes yielding over 100 yards from Gillmer 
to Atkin were completed in this session. On one of these the Staters scored. 

Between the halves the Y coaches worked out a defense which completely upset 
the Coloradoans, and the last half was all the Cougar's. 

In this game Dixon and Knudsen shined in the Y backfield. With end runs and 
line bucks this duo, with the aid of the best line work given by the Y team during the 
season, walked down the field for a score almost at will. 


B. Y. U., 16; MONTANA, 7 

Climaxing a very successful football season, the Cougar squad walloped the 
Montana Bobcats in a spectacular game. The final score was 16-7. 

The home team scores were made in the earlv part of the game, the first one com- 
ing as a direct result of a 40-yard run made by "Buck" Dixon. Dixon failed to con- 
vert goal. 

The second touchdown was the result of a constant and heavy-hitting line attack, 
featured by the smashes of Knudsen and Dixon. The Bobcats also made their first 
score in the second quarter of the game. 

At the beginning of the half neither team seemed to make any headway, the de- 
fense on both sides tightening down as a wall. Young, failing to make any ground 
in straight football, had to resort to place kicking. After three trials Dixon finally 
converted one, making the total 16 to 7 for the Cougars. No more scores were made. 

Seven fighters of the blue jersey turned in their suits for the final time after this 
game. The men were: Buck Dixon, Kid Romney, Cecil Merkley, Swede Swenson, Bob 
Howard, Fred Hinckley and Eddie Kimball. Dixon. Howard. Kimball and Merkley 
played probably the best game of their careers. Hinckley had been previously dis-

Frosh Football 

Coach Phil Jackson and his Freshman football squad have done a very creditable 
piece of work this year. Approximately twenty men came out to practices faithfully, 
eighteen of this number making their sweaters. 

To begin the season right, the Greenlings took a trip to Snow College, and un- 
mercifully defeated the Normal school team. The score was 52-0. The next two 
games resulted in defeats for the Cougar "kittens," but were some good exhibitions 
of the manly art of football. Utah defeated them 19-7, and Idaho Tech took them 
down 20-17. The Idaho game was probably the most spectacular game of the season. 
It was in this game that Ivie, of Salina, received a fractured skull. The only score 
the Provo lads made was in the third quarter when Wright snatched a fumble and 
left the field for an eighty-yard run for a touchdown. 

A banquet was held at the conclusion of the season to which every man who had 
been out was invited. 

Sweaters were awarded by the class to the following players: Captain Reed 
Colvin. Donald Dixon, Eldred Collins, Joe Buys, Gray, Scovil, Owen Rowe, Percy 
Anderson, Les Wright. Dick Johnson, H. Simmons, LaDell Sessions, George Corbett, 
Alton Giles, Dave Condon, Vern Oviatt, James Ivie, and Earl Bessinger. 



The Basketball Season 

Opening a fast and semi-successful basketball season, the Cougar squad went to 
Salt Lake to play the first series of games against the University of Utah. The Provo 
team succeeded in taking both games. 

The first game, played on Friday. January 22, was a thriller from start to finish. 
The Redskins took an early lead, but were evened by the visiting felines in a fast 
rally near the end of the first half. The half ended with Young in the lead, 13-10. 

Due to injuries to some of the men the coach was forced to substitute several 
times in the second half. F. Dixon, Howard, and Romney were somewhat off -color, 
and late in the half Don Dixon was put in the game. 

Up to the last minute of the second half the game had been a see-saw, with the 
Cougars slightly over-balancing the Indians, but with a flurry of lightning-like action, 
Utah succeeded in gaining a one-point lead. The Provo crowd sighed, the Salt Lake 
supporters went wild. A fast passing play was put in motion, the Cougars getting 
possession of the ball from the tip-off. The play was blocked, and, as a last resort, 
Don Dixon was forced to shoot from center-floor. The shot was perfect, and before 
the ball could be centered again the game was over. 

Score: Utah, 21; Young, 22. 

The Saturday game was not much less thrilling, although it was a little more 
decisively in favor of the Provo team. This game was featured more by long-shots, 
and incidentally both scores were run higher. 

The Cougars resorted to a system of rhythmical passing which completely baffled 
the rather inexperienced Utah squad. The passing and shooting of both teams was 
lightning-like, but was a little in favor of the Young squad in accuracy of shots. 

Score: Utah, 31; Young, 35. 


Fred "Buck" Dixon 

Golden "Stein" Romney 

The first home games of the season were against the Aggies, and were played on 
Friday and Saturday. January 29 and 30. The first game started very evenly, the 
Cougars making the first score, the Aggies then forging ahead of them then a tieing 
of the score; but just before the end of the first half the Farmers started a going 
streak which netted them eight points and which practically won the game for them. 
The half ended 19-13 with Young trailing. 

Coach Roberts' famous come-back of the second half which has won so many 
games for the White and Blue, began with a rush at the opening whistle, and nar- 
rowed the Aggie lead to three points. But the margin was too great. Phenomenal 
shooting and fast, accurate passing gave the Aggies a lead of seventeen points, placing 
the score at 36-19. At this point the second string was run in. This squad, mostly 
Freshmen, began a fight that will be long-remembered, and although thev could not 
close the gap, they played the visitors evenly, scoring 12 points to the Aggies' 13. 

Score: Aggies, 49; Young, 31. 

The Saturday game was a great improvement over the first in the eyes of the local 
students, and was a great surprise to the dopesters. The game was close and inter- 
esting; and the outcome was doubtful until the final whistle. 

As in the first game, the Farmers led at the end of the first half, but this time 
only by a margin of three points. The spirit of the onlookers had waned and the 
outcome was speculatively the same as the previous night. 

A new team came on the floor after the period between halves: and with the 
rising score, the cheers of the students became more and more enthusiastic, completely 
losing bounds when the felines conquered the lead of the Farmers. Once again 
in the second half, the score was tied, at 24-24, but from that time on the Youngsters 
"jraduallv pulled away. 

Score: Aggies, 32; Young. 36.

Montana Games — Bozeman Series 

The most severe jolt of the season was given when the Young "cats" took their 
trip to Montana, on Thursday and Friday, February 4 and 5. Montana won both 
games decisively. Several good reasons were given; the strangeness of the floor, 
the glass bankers, and the unusual officiating seemed to rob the Cougars of their 

The first game was featured by much erratic shooting and rough playing. Young 
went in to win and it appeared that they might. The score at the end of the first 
half stood 19-9 in favor of the Provo team. In the second half, however, the beef 
and bone of the Bobcats was too much for them. 

In the second half, Montana seemed to hit its stride, while the Cougars seemed to 
tire. Their passes went wild and their shots rebounded straight. The Bobcats did 
not lead by a very large margin, being only one point ahead until about two minutes 
before the end of the game. In this last period they made two baskets. 

Score: Montana, 36; Young, 31. 

The Friday game, the rougher one of the two, resulted disastrously for Young. 
Montana took an eight-point lead in the first three minutes of the game, and held the 
lead throughout. Much shooting was done by Montana, and Lady Luck seemed to 
be with them, while when the Cougars did get a chance to shoot, it was of no avail. 

The Bobcats scored heavily in the second half, unmercifully hammering the 
Cougars' attempts at defense. 

Score: Montana, 41; Young, 18.

Sweet revenge was Utah's in the first game of the Provo series, played on Friday 
and Saturday, February 12 and 13. Stung by the loss of the first series of games on 
their home floor, the Redskins came out upon the Cougars with all the viciousness of 
true Indians. 

Carrying the Young hoopsters off their feet with a whirlwind attack, the Salt Lake 
aggregation amassed a 13-point lead by the close of the first half, this after Young 
had led at the start. 

Roberts' rest period lecture took full effect upon the Cougars, spurring them 
to such great action that before thev could be stopped they had garnered 17 points. 
During this time Utah had made three points, the result being a one-point lead for 
Young. Utah called time out, to stop the rally, and were successful in their contem- 
plated action. This was near the close of the game, and Utah easily piled up five 
points before the "Y" could rally again. 

Score: Utah. 39; Young, 34. 

In the Saturday game the Cougars found their old form and easily took the fight- 
ing Redskins to defeat. 

Utah started the same dashing attack used the night before, and took an early 
lead. Young promptly started slipping the guards down the sidelines for repeated 
scores and had soon overtaken the small Utah lead. The end of the period showed 
Young to be in the lead, 20-9. 

With a belated rally in the second half. Utah came within three points of catching 
the felines. This concluded the scoring for the Utes, except for two foul pitches, 
while Young gathered in 12 more points. The game featured excellent passing and 
blocking on the part of the "Y." 

Score: Utah, 24; Young, 37. 


U. A. C. Games — Logan Series 

With a possibility of a state and even a conference title at stake, the Young 
Cougars went to Logan with a true spirit of fight in their hearts. The series was 
played Friday and Saturday, February 26 and 27. 

The first game was another see-saw affair first one team leading, then the other. 
Toward the end of the first half, however, Young pulled away and the half ended 
21-17 in favor of the Cougars. 

At the beginning of the second half the Provo squad widened the breach to 
nine points. The Farmers called time out, and came back with a rush, narrowed 
down the lead of the Cougars and finally gained a lead of four points for themselves. 
The pace set in the rally was too fast, and once the felines passed them, the Farmers 
never got going again. 

Score: Aggies, 43; Young, 52. 

With the state title tied, and lacking only one more game to win the Western 
Division title, and the right to compete with the Eastern Division winners, the Young 
quint came back loaded with the lust of conquer. 

In the first half it looked as though our wishes would materialize. The Cougars 
were invincible. The defense was as tight as a wedge, and the open floor work was 
comparable to clockwork. The half ended 24-17 in favor of the Cougar state 

The Aggies, sensing the importance of the contest, and with the advantage of the 
home floor and the support of the gallery, came back with a steady and dauntless 
attack against the Cougar lead. Slowly but with maddening certainty the lead was 
cut down. The end of the game approached, but before the final gun (and possibly 
the savior of a conference title) went off the Farmer attack had succeeded. The title 
had been lost. 

Score: Aggies, 36; Young, 34.

Montana Games — Provo Series 

The concluding series of the year was played between the Montana team and 
the Young Cougars on Wednesday and Thursday, March 3 and 4. The games were 
played on the home floor, but it seemed that no one was interested. Nothing de- 
pended on the outcome, the title had been won by the Aggies, and the team was 

The first game was somewhat of a drag, the home team taking an early lead and 
holding it throughout. There was a good deal of rough playing, on the part of the 
visitors, but the passing and shooting of the "Y" was of a high order. 

Score: Montana, 33; Young, 52. 

The Thursday game was a much cleaner and more excellent display of basketball. 
It was the last game for four of the Cougar main string men, Buck Dixon, Bob 
Howard, Russell Swenson, and Golden Romney, and it was an honest endeavor to 
make a good showing. Bob Howard was cut over the eye and bled profusely, but 
he seemed not to be bothered, and later in the game, when he sprained his ankle, he 
appeared as though it would break his heart to be removed from the contest. 

During The first half the score was close, and the lead alternated several times, 
but toward the end of the half two of the visitors' best men were taken out on per- 
sonal fouls. With this handicap the Youngsters were able to take a one-point lead. 
The half ended 13-12. 

The strong offense of the Young squad completely broke down the shattered 
wall of the Bozeman five in the second half and the Cougars easily ran up a score. 

Score: Montana, 20; Young, 36.

Freshman Team, Class Champions 

Class Series Basketball 

Basketball stock took a decided jump this year when the Freshman number two 
team walked off with the inter-class title. A great many skeptics predicted a slump in 
this sport with the graduation of several of the star players, but the showing made 
by both Freshman teams should make optimists out of the pessimists. 

The team which won the title was composed of the following players, and was 
only defeated once in the entire tournament, this defeat coming from the hands of 
the Freshman number one team: Joe Buys, Orlin Biddulph, Henry Simmons, Dave 
Adamson, Bruce Gilchrist, Bruce Moody, Nello Westover, Leon Wilkins, Roy Mitchell, 
and Tony Stevens. The team that defeated them was practically the Provo High squad 
of last year. Some of the men are: Don Dixon, Reed Collins, Dave Condon, James 
Hawkins, Les Wright, and LaDell Sessions. 



Track Season 

The Brigham Young University track team, although having the high point man, 
was unable to garner more than 29 points, while the Redskins walked away with a 
total of 95. 

Owen Rowe, a Freshman from Spanish Fork, was, as always, the outstanding 
performer of the meet. He not only took first in the 100-yard dash, the 220-yard low 
hurdles and in the broad jump, but was the winning factor in the closely contested 
half-mile relay. 

A few small mishaps caused a part of the great margin between the teams. Mes- 
senger was forced to withdrawn from the pole-vault because of a lacerated thumb, 
and Simmons running with a lead of thirty yards in the mile relay, seemed unable 
to withstand the strain and was passed on the straightaway. 














Van Leuven 

Buck Dixon placed second in the high-jump and the pole-vault but failed to 
make his letter. 

Young fared somewhat better in the meet against the Farmers at Logan. The 
Aggies garnered a total of 88 against 48 for Young, in a slow and uninteresting 
meet. It had been raining, and the meet was run on a wet field, slowing things up 

Rowe continued his excellent performance by scoring high individual honors 
with eleven points. He took the 100-yard dash. Rowe also overtook Worthington's 
two-yard lead in the half-mile relay and came in with a win for Young by inches. 

Call was picked by one judge as first in the 220-yard dash, but the decision of the 
other judges went to Anderson of the Aggies. Corbett of the "Y" placed first in the 
discus with a throw of 124 feet 8 inches. 

The surprise of the day come when Wright, the plucky little Freshman from 
Young, passed the famous Burke and won the 880-yard run.

Concluding a very successful track season, considering the handicap of a small 
student body to pick from, the Young tracksters journeyed to the state meet at Salt 
Lake and were able to squeeze out a total of 28 points. Although this only gave 
them third place, it showed a marked improvement over the showing made in the 
dual meets. Utah scored 59 points and the Aggies took second with 33y 2 points. 

In the 220-yard low hurdle race, Rowe not only set a new record in the state, 
of 24 4-5, but decisively defeated his high school rival, Worthington, running for the 
Aggies. In addition, the Cougar Freshman placed first in the century, the 220-yard 
dash, again defeating Worthington. 

A new state record of 1:31 1-5 was made in the half-mile relay team, composed 
of Morgan, Anderson, Call and Rowe. This was the most thrilling race of the day, 
the Cougar entry trailing second and third until the last furlong. When Rowe re- 
ceived the baton, Worthington was fully two yards ahead of him, but with a phenome- 
nal burst of speed Rowe passed him, at the tape, winning the race by a scant margin 
of eight inches.

Invitation Meet and Relay Carnival 

One thousand, three hundred fifty-one persons took part in the sixteenth annual 
invitation track meet and relay carnival held Friday and Saturday, April 23 and 24. 

New carnival records for the junior high were made in the 440-vard dash, by 
George McTulip, South Junior High, in 59 seconds; the pole vault, 9 feet 8^ inches, 
by Naylor, Sunnyside; and the shot-put, 42 feet 7 inches, also by Naylor. 

The posture parade, possibly the most spectacular event of the carnival, was won 
by American Fork. Lehi took second and Lincoln third. Seven schools participated. 

Gordon Rhodes of West High School, Salt Lake, won the gold watch given for 
the winner of the all-around championship competition. The entries competed in 
ten standard track and field events, and of this number Rhodes placed highest in 
four, Cox, of Ogden, took second, Jenson, of Jordan, took third. 

Carnival records were set in two events in the junior college competition. Webster, 
of Ricks, ran the 100-yard dash in 10 1-5 for a carnival record, as well as taking the 
220-yard dash in 23 3-5 seconds. Ward, of Branch Agricultural College, put the shot 
37 feet 5 inches for a carnival record. Hanks, of Ricks, took first in the high jump 
with a leap of 5 feet 9 inches, and broad-jumped 18 feet 6 inches for another first. 

The special Freshman events of the Rocky Mountain Faculty Athletic Confer- 
ence meet exhibited some of the classiest track performances of the day. With the 
perfect condition of the track and the weather in his favor, Owen Rowe negotiated 
the 220-yard low hurdles in 24 2-5 second, equaling the conference record and run- 
ning under state record time. The meet, however, was not official. Rowe also took 
the 100-yard dash in 10 1-5 seconds. 

Smith of the "Y" took the mile run, and Rowe, Cutler, Dunkley, and Ballif took 
the 440-yard relay, giving Young a clean sweep. 

Over three thousand watched the meet. The weather was perfect, and there were 
no mishaps. 


The Twelfth Annual Cross Country Run 

Frosty" Richards 

Dame Nature was again kind enough to pro- 
vide a beautiful day for the annual Thanksgiving 
cross-country run. And again the powerful 
lungs of the P. G. blond served him well, bring- 
ing him first place for the third consecutive year 
and entitling him to permanent possession of the 
cup, and bringing the turkey feast to the Junior 

Not only did "Frosty" take the honor for the 
third year, but he abandoned his old record in 
lieu of his newly established time of 21 minutes 
33 seconds for the four and two-tenths miles. 
Two years ago. "Frosty" established a new rec- 
ord; but last year he fell down seventeen sec- 
onds. It is probable that the record he made 
this year will stand longer than any of the prev- 
ious records. 

Interest in the cross-country run seems to have 
fallen off somewhat the last few years, since only 
about a dozen entered and the competition 
among them not being very close. To stimulate 
interest in distance running, a new cross-country 
run was initiated this spring. A sweater was 
given with the motive of making the run really- 
interesting enough for good, red-blooded com- 
petition. "Frosty" was the winner of this the 
first trial of the event.

Season in Tennis 

The 1926 tennis season was one featured throughout by "on" and "off" playing, 
the Cougars taking two clean sweeps and losing two close matches. 

The first match was played against the Aggies, and resulted in an overwhelming 
victory for Young. Out of the five matches played, the Northmen annexed only one 
set, and this against Mangum and Dixon, both Freshmen. 

The second match, however, was not so good. It was played against Utah at 
Provo, and was won bv Utah. The Dixon brothers, Buck and Sank, each took their 
singles, but both doubles were lost and Gallagher defeated Buttle in a three-set 

A second clean sweep was taken by the Provo men on their trip to Logan. Every 
match was comparatively easily won by the Youngsters except Mangum's singles, 
which went to four sets and was called on account of rain. Mangum took the fifth 
and deciding set in the play the next morning. 

Utah also defeated the Farmers twice, giving them a lead of one match over 
the "Y." The last match to be played was at Utah, and with the advantage of placing 
the men it was conceded that Young should take the match and tie the state title. 

All dope-buckets filled with propaganda to this effect were completely up-ended. 
The Cougars took but one of the five matches played. 

After playing seventy-one games, the Dixon brothers were forced to give up to 
Gallagher and Blevens. Blevins also defeated Sanky Dixon in the extra singles. 

Lee Buttle and Captain Knight Allen also lost a five-set match to Irvine and 
Goodell. Buttle, however, won his extra singles, which was the only match taken by 
the Provo team.

'■' v _ 

Mangum and Hayden played four sets, Mangum taking the set he took with a 
love score. Hayden settled, however, and pulled out for a win. 

Although it is a keen disappointment to lose a title so nearly in our grasp, the 
school should feel satisfied with the showing the men have made. Buck Dixon and 
Knight Allen will both be graduated this Spring, and will leave gaps difficult to fill. 
yet with the young blood that has been displaying itself Young university will give 

the schools of the North an interesting tussle 








The Wrestling Season 

Winning in the dual meet with Utah and taking a close second in the Rocky 
Mountain Conference meet, held at Provo, the Cougar wrestlers closed the season 
confident that they had done their best to defend the White and Blue. 

Since last year, it seems that the grapplers from the far North are the hardiest 
in the state. The Young mat men were successful in copping the state pennant in 
this event for the first two years of inter-collegiate competition. But last year, the 
Logan Farmers arrested the bunting from the Cougars; and they seem determined 
to hold it. 

The B. Y. U. floor strugglers, having taken every match but two in the meet with 
the Utes, and being fairly well represented, were hopeful of recovering the title 
from the Aggies in the conference meet. The heroic effort the "Y" men exerted 
brought the title within three points of the goal so eagerly sought. An unusual de- 
gree of interest was shown in the meet this year, the majority of the matches being 
exceptionally fast. 

The wrestling season was characterized throughout by a wholesome spirit of good 
sportsmanship; and, furthermore, the development of new material for next years' 
squad is almost complete compensation for this year's effort.

Siuimming Accomplishments 

Coach Leaf 

Swimming as a collegiate sport is slowly but surely taking its proper place in Utah athletics. 
It was inaugurated in 1922; but then, it was nothing short of an exhibition of a few fairly good 
swimmers. Because of the extreme superiority of the University of Utah swimmers, very little 
competition was furnished by the other two collegiate teams. This lack of competition has been 
the greatest drawback to progress in the aquatic sport at Brigham Young University. The diffi- 
culty was practically removed by the adoption of the conference rule which allows an unlimited 
number of contestants in any event. 

In 1922. the U. of U. had the only trained team in the state, having in their ranks several A. A. 
U. champions. But at that time. B.' Y. U. and A. C. U. were represented by a handful of '"mere 
men," certainly not "mermen." In the 1922 meet, the showing of the other two schools was 
pathetic along with the professional work of the Ute squad. 

The next year, however, the cup became leveled considerably. Under the direction of capable 
coaches, both the Aggies and the Cougars showed such a marked improvement that the Utes were 
threatened with dropping their crown. But still the Redskins held the title. The Y ducks shifted 
their name one line higher on the score board during this, their third year of competition. 

The fourth year. 1925. saw the closest contest yet witnessed in Utah collegiate circles. Prac- 
tically every record went by the board. The Young waterdogs pressed the Utes so tightly that 
prognosticators were dumbfounded until the announcement of the results of the final event. 
Only four points kept the Cougars from the coveted title. 

The 1926 meet proved that Utah Lake water is just as good as that of Salt Lake or Bear Lake. 
The winning of both the State and Western Conference titles by the Y natators clearly demon- 
strated rapid progress in the water sport made during the last five years by B. Y. U. The well- 
balanced team from Provo met in the annual meet at Logan. March 19th. and from the first splash 
until the final gong held the lead. The score tells the story of Young's unmistakable superiority. 

The Cougar team consisted of eight men captained by the veteran plunger. Harlow Jones. 
The other men were Wesley Johnson. Merrill Christopherson. Clifford Dangerfield. Fred Richan, 
Carl Harris. Eddie Peay. and Heber Williams. 

The phenomenal progress of B. Y. U. in this comparatively recent addition to our catalogue of 
sports is undoubtedly due in large measure to the capable, enthusiastic, and untiring effort of 
Coach C. S. Leaf, to him is due a goodly share of the credit for the widespread interest in 
swimming which has developed in the inter-mountain region during the last few years.

Women's Athletics 

The second year of the Women's Athletic Association has been marked by so much 
improvement and growth that it is rapidly becoming one of the major organizations 
of our Alma Mater. 

For many years the need of a girls' athletic organization has been felt; but it was 
not until last year that the present W. A. A. was organized. Much was done to further 
the work; and at the beginning of this year, the officers, aided by Miss Jeppson, were 
instrumental in presenting a complete athletic program in the fields of tennis, basket- 
ball, hockey, swimming, track, hiking, and dancing. 

As a motto the girls have kept before them "A sport for every girl, and every 
girl a sport." To further this and arouse a greater interest in athletics, the Women's 
Physical Education Department joined the Association in a Women's Athletic Carni- 
val. Grade school girls, Junior and Senior high school girls, and college girls from 
schools all over the State met and participated in varied athletic sports. 

It is hoped that the Association will continue to progress as much in the future 
as it has done in the past. Those to be commended for putting over this work are: 
Miss Wilma Jeppson, the head of the Women's Physical Education Department; Eada 
Smith, president; Inez Warnick, vice-president; Hilda Miller, secretary; Emma 
Snow, recorder. 

The sport managers are as follows: Tennis, Kathleen Parry; basketball, Freda 
Robinson; hockey, Jo Dougall and Esther Eggertsen; track, Arthel Morgan; hiking, 
Fern Billings; dancing, Mildred Lewis; swimming, Lucy Bee.

Dixie Club 

Dixie has furnished an imposing lineup of students who have "done things." As 
a club they have been among the liveliest on the campus. 1925-26 marks another 
successful year, their parties being peppy and well-attended and their projects well 
worked out. Another feather for their cap came with the winning of the Pep Vodie 
prize with a clever stunt, "The Dixie Derby."

French Club 

The French club has enjoyed a consistent and successful year 
with the largest group since its organization. The purpose of the 
organization is to develop a keener appreciation of the French lan- 
guage and literature and to stimulate the study and use of the French 
tongue. In addition to its regular activities the club assisted in the 
presentation of the series of lectures by Wm. W. Ellsworth, and pre- 
sented a one-act play on the polygot evening sponsored by the for- 
eign language department. Raymond Richan served as president of 
the club.

The Valle 



Several Million Years Ago 

The above reproduction is an actual glimpse of life in Utah Valley several million years ago. 
Recently many of the two-legged species have been unearthed on or about our campus where they 
have lain for all the centuries since the time they roamed the plains in search of food I for 
thought I. By their pictures you shall know them, but by their names you would not know them 
even in the dark (ages). Eastmondthidium. a herbivore, I an eater of greens) and the Swen- 
saurus, were common in those days when Brontosaurus and other creatures of the early days 
were rampant. The Pardocropterous and Acteronous of the same age occupies the center of the 
stage. In this picture he is telling his fellows about the great dinosaur he saw over in Uintah, 
larger than ever before. 

Roberterix can be seen starting the handicap of the day. Higgiopsis will run Triceratops 
down a leaky ditch. Roberterix has been known since the beginning of time for starting some- 
thing. Then we see in the high heavens Storkodon carrying the infant Harriogonum merricanus.

An Edit Oral on Laws 

Fellow students (no, this is not Owen Romney making an announcement), as I stand before 
you on this soap box as a member of the society for prevention of cruelty to salmon eggs, I want 
to distill in your hearts a few ideas of laws that are existing today. Ever since man ceased to 
chase his wife and meat for the children with a club there has been a mania for laws. When the 
human race had nothing else to do they would pass a law, and the worst part about it is that we 
have to suffer for all the follies of yesterday. 

The foolishness all started down about 1496 when some guy named Sir Isaac Newton, I think 
he is the one who invented Fig Newtons. passed a law on gravitation. Now of all the foolish things 
to pass a law on; if it had not been for this law we would have been strolling on the milky way 
long before this picking butter cups. I think the only reason this law was passed was to insure 
good business for the gas balloon trade. 

This is only a sample of the foolish irrigation. I mean legislation, that we have had. All these 
laws, traffic laws, by-laws, mother-in-laws, law's sake, and the law of diminishing returns are a 
bunch of applesauce. Take the law of diminishing returns, for instance, some one decided that a 
man would make too much money if he planted three acres of lucern instead of one, and so he 
proceeded to pass a law saying that the returns on the election of student body officers would not 
be heard until the dance that night. 

It makes any sensible man think that the only reason laws are passed is so we will not 
understand just what we are supposed to do and then they can fine us and keep up the fund 
for disabled poodle dogs. Fellow students, I want to bear my alimony. I say down with every 
thing that is up and up with everything that is down. Do it now before this blue law is passed 
making everyone wear a blue necktie and socks, I thank you.

The Three Best Year Books 

— ever produced by the Brigham Young University are 
naturally those of the last three years, all of which annuals 
were printed in the plant of Stevens & Wallis, Inc. 

Excellence in every detail — arrangement of material, taste 
in typography, perfection of press work, selection of the inks, 
and the wholehearted cooperation of an able staff of printing 
planners and craftsmen have all contributed to the making of 
this year's annual better than its predecessors.

In Appreciation 

To George K. Lewis, the credit in a large measure for the success of the publication is due. 
Even before the Banyan he was then editing was off the press, he was interested in making the 
1926 Banyan one of the finest ever published. And from that day to these last hours of printing 
he has worked day, and most of the nights, on the art. photography, arrangements, and even some 
of the literary work of the book. The words within the editor's grasp cannot adequately express 
his appreciation to Mr. Lewis for his constant valuable advice and help in most every department 
of the work. 

Undoubtedly there is not a more difficult branch of the work in putting out a college annual 
than the art work. To Miss Effie Bunderson a considerable portion of the credit should be justly 
attributed for the accomplishment of this most uninviting task. Miss Bunderson was one of the 
first members of the staff; and ever since the day of her appointment there has been very little 
she would not sacrifice in order to do her work on the Banyan. It has never been the editor's 
pleasure to work with a more congenial, willing helper than Miss Bunderson. 

Willard H. Clarke was appointed to the position of business manager a very few days after 
last year's election. Immediately, he took hold of his work as though it were really part of his 
responsibility. The work couldn't possibly have ever been completed had it not been for this 
very ability of Mr. Clarke's to take responsibility so willingly. 

Shortly after the appointment of Mr. Clarke, Julius V. Madsen was called to the fold and 
given that most difficult task of getting the advertising. He has helped considerably on the literary 
work as well. 

Late in the year Glenn Potter was called to the ranks and worked energetically enough to do a 
good year's work in a few weeks. He was another worthy savior of the day. 

In spite of being called away from town several times, Evan Madsen did a worthy piece of 
work by keeping track of all of the photographs. The photographs were probably kept as sys- 
matically this year as ever before. 

The major part of the listing of names and gathering of pedigrees fell to Carma Ballif, one 
of our most capable staff members. Her help in keeping the lists, gathering information, typing 
all copy, and working out the index was one of the most important contributions to the produc- 
tion of the book. Her assistance in preparing the dummy and proof reading has been equally as 

The major portion of the splendid work done on mounting the large panels of portraits was 
done by Arthel Morgan and Inez Warnick. 

Most of the Bunyon contributions were made by DeAlton Partridge. The Bunyon has been 
greatly handicapped this year because of indefiniteness with regard to the amount of space that 
could be allowed. 

The literary part of the book was given to the care of Louise Engar who has worked 
patiently since the early part of the work. She has ever been willing to do her best. Many 
times she has responded willingly to rush calls even though they have come late in the night. 

Evelyn Morgan's task was another one of those "mean" ones — that of recording the events 
of the year. Without much help, Miss Morgan took hold of her job and plodded patiently 
throughout the year. 

The business phase of the work has been carried on admirably by those already mentioned 
with the help of Wesley Johnson and Nello Westover. 

The active members of the staff have already received recognition in some measure for their 
work; but many friends of the Banyan have done much more than that for which they are recog- 
nized. Among those who have come to our aid at vital points in the work is Joe Nelson, who 
has worked many a night as patiently and willingly as nearly any staff member. He was the 
winner of the Banyan sales prize, having sold one hundred and fifty books. Other high salesmen 
were Grant Broadbent, Reed Christensen, Elton Billings, Mathew Bentley, Melvin Strong, and 
the Miller sisters. 

The athletic section was contributed by Meith Maeser, Robert Allen, and Burdette Crane. 
Robert Allen has made substantial contributions to the athletic section during the few weeks 
preceding publication. His help has been among the most valuable of the non-staff members. 

Dr. Snow, President-Emeritus Brimhall, and Lowry Nelson have given considerable help in 
different branches of the work. 

At the last end of the work are the men who really made the Banyan — the printers. No one 
can ever realize the effort these men have expended in the attempt to put the book out on time in 
spite of being handicapped many days. Mr. Giles has been a constant source of help in building 
the book. Mr. Miles and Mr. Fletcher have worked night and day with all of the speed within 
their power to finish the job in the quickest and best possible manner. Our gratitude to them 
is greater than we can hope to express. 

In conclusion, any credit that may be due anyone for the production of this work or any of 
its part should go to the many willing workers who have made the book possible. The individual 
members are largely due the credit for the virtues of their particular branch of the work.
