A 







Gazing out over a iun-bakcd prairie valley, a man — Brigham Young 
— inspired by Vision, exclaimed, "This is the Place". 
But before the "man" came, God, in quest of a spot in which to home an 
Israel of "modern times", found the place and epitomized it with the words 
"This is the Place", an appellation for future peoples to repeat and to im- 
mortalize. 

Preserved and hidden up through the aeons of time to fill a great destiny and 
to home a great people, this land of "shifting sands and howling coyotes" has 
become a land of fruitful fields and happy homes. 

But what the "man" saw in Vision and tvhat God beheld before him, is only 

now being revealed to the eyes of men. A variety of entrancing beauty 

that dazzles the wildest of imaginings now lures multitudes of the "world" 

to bask in the restfulness of its charm. Wearied of crazy man-made 

things, they come; refreshed and strengthened through contact 

with sublime God -made things, they go. Enthralled before the 

majesty of God's Handiworks, men of all climes stand here 

with bowed heads to meditate. Inspired by the faith 

d nobility of God-loving Mormon Pioneers, who 

first made the way to these "Temples of God", 

men are here taught to appreciate. Verily, 

"This is the Place."

Located in the heart of the most 

exquisitely beautiful of God's creations, 

the Bri^ham Youn^ University^ stands a 

monument to the noble ideals which His 

Handiworks typify. 

If, in perusing these pa^es, you receive anew 
some of the inspiration obtained while at school; 
if you catch a^ain the spirit of our home- 
land as exemplified by His "temples" here 
abounding, and as absorbed and dissem- 
inated by our Alma MateT-, we shall 

be happy, knowing our aim has /// 

been achieved.

NDER the arch th.i: 
marks East Entrance to 
College Buildinj;, students 
of two generations have 
passed on their wav to 
College Hall. 

The "Hall of Memories" 
is College Hal'. Tri-wcek- 
ly students have volun- 
tarily assembled there in 
throngs to render sincere 
devotion in humble rec- 
ognition of a Supreme Be- 
ing. There they have list- 
ened to and have seen 
excellent performances of 
Fine Art; they have been 
ennobled through contact 
with good men and wom- 
en who have come there to 
teach fundamental Truths 
of life. They have learned 
the great principles of 
Democracy through ming- 
ling with each other there 
on a common basis. The 
great intangible "Spirit of 
the Y" had its origin there 
and now receives its nour- 
ishment therefrom. Sacred 
to the memory of thou- 
sands is College Hall.

the basis of morality." —

OMMANDING in- 
deed, is the Library- situ- 
ated on the crest of Col- 
lege Hill over-looking the 
beautiful and busy valley 
below. 

Through this entrance 
and into the spacious halls 
beyond, earnest seekers 
after knowledge have 
passed, and from the thou- 
sands of volumes there 
housed containing the 
world's best information, 
students have gleaned 
gems of truth that have 
made them richer in their 
learning. 

The "Y" impressively 
embossed on the hill-side 
in the back-ground, con- 
stantly reminds observers 
of the traditions and ideals 
s.icred to the institution 
which it symbolizes and 
challenges students to live 
according thereto.

Angels' Landing, Zion National Park, Utah 

Reaching fifteen hundred feet above the river which washes its base, this 
great "block of red sandstone" is almost entirely detached from its surround- 
ings. It was first scaled September 9, 1924, when two park rangers made the 
climb without aid of ropes.

Natural Bridge, Bryce Canyon, Utah 

Almost lost in its Oriental surroundings, you experience difficulty in find- 
ing this Natural Bridge, but once seen, you can never lose it, for it stands out 
different in shape and color to anything you have ever beheld. Its freakishness 
holds you long in a magic spell, and its charm fascinates you.

"When you enter the Temple of Sinawava you will feel at once that you 
have seen how incalculably God has set Himself forever over the wit and genius of 
man. — 

"God's bended turquoise sky, its walls of jasper red, rising two thousand feet 
above its green-carpeted, river-threaded floor; its columns vermilion; its altars a 
shrines festooned with aspen and pine and elder; green groves for sanctuary a 
contemplation; and everywhere a place for bowed head and bended knee in both 
humility and elation of spirit at the feet of God. — John S/ci en McGroarty.

East Temple and the Twin Brothers, Zion National Park 

"From the vermilion walls have been chiseled individual buttes and peaks of 
great bulk and majesty, amonj; them the East Temple. It is a splendid structure 
of pink and white surmounted by a carmine cap-stone. Above the east wall stand 
the Twin Brothers and the Mountain-of-thc-Sun, the latter the first to glow in the 
light of dawn, the last to hold the evening rays. — And these soaring scarps and 
summits present such varied tints and hues of red that the expert in pigments is 
bewildered; from delicate pink to deepest carmine, and beyond — from bittersweet 
and orient pink through orange chrome, flame-scarlet, vermilion, jasper, Pompeiian 
red and Indian lake to mahogany, ox-blood, maroon and a red that is almost black. 
In places the walls are topped with creamy white and the green of pines. Every- 
where they exhibit a wizardry of massive sculpture."

Thf. Sculptor's Studio, Brycf. Canyon, Utah 

"In the maze of fancied architecture uprising from Bryce's sunken gardens, 
where pine, spruce and man/anita spread their greens, may be discovered structures 
that might have come from China, Egypt, Greece, the medieval cities of Europe 
and the ancient capitals of Mexico and Peru; there is a stronger likeness, perhaps, 
to some of those decaying temples, bursting with decoration, in the jungles of 
Burmah and Java. It is not difficult to find pagodas, jnosques, cathedrals, organs, 
pyramids, suspension bridges, leaning towers, flying buttresses and stairways, col- 
onnades, walls with niches and windows — All of the architects of antiquity might 
have drawn their inspiration from the silent city of Bryce."

The College of Arts and Sciences 

The College of Arts .ind Sciences has a two-fold 
purpose. The primary purpose, and the one on 
which by far the greater stress is laid is to meet the 
needs of students who want a broad education that 
will enable them to find and take their places in the 
complex civilization of today. The secondary pur- 
pose of preparation for original investigation in the 
fields of science receives adequate and sympathetic 
attention. The ever-increasing enrolment in this 
College bears witness to the popularity it enjoys in 
the University. 

Dr. Carl F. Eyring, because of excellent training 
and genial personality, is well qualified for his posi- 
tion as Dean in this College. His sympathetic 
treatment of every student has won for him the 
respect, and more important, the friendship of the 
students who have been fortunate enough to come 
in contact with him.

College oi Applied Science 

The College of Applied Science affords an ex- 
cellent grade of practical training in the scientific 
principles and technical operations pertaining to the 
farm, the home, and the shop. The steady increase 
in the enrolment of this College gives proof that 
practical trainmg is gaining a well deserved recog- 
nition in modern education. 

Dr. Christian Jensen, a man of clear vision and 
friendly disposition, is unusually well fitted for the 
position he holds as Dean of this College. Genial, 
yet he has a pleasing dignity which at once wins and 
holds the respect of the students. His sincerity 
and keenness of analysis have made him a splendid 
leader. Dean Jensen has a stimulating effect upon 
the students with whom he comes in contact.

College of Commerce 

In this age of keen competition in the business 
world, httle or no premium is placed on the un- 
prepared, or poorly prepared workman. The pre- 
mium goes to the skilled workman. There is always 
room at the top. 

The Brigham Young University clearly recog- 
nizes this fact and its College of Commerce is offer- 
ing training of both a practical and a theoretical 
nature. That this training is carrying over is proved 
by the unusual success of the commerce graduates. 

The success of the college is due, in large measure, 
to Dean Harrison V. Hoyt. Combined with an ex- 
cellent theoretical training he has a wide business 
experience and a clear, practical mind, qualifications 
which make him a capable and efficient leader and a 
highly successful Dean.

College of Education 

Today the demand for excellence is as urgent in 
the teaching profession as it is in any other field. 
The prospective teacher must not only have a rich 
background of information but also must have a 
technical training that will enable him to present 
this information in the best possible manner. 

The Brigham Young University correlates moral 
training with the technical training it gives the 
prospective teacher. The ever-increasing demand 
for teachers trained at this institution is ample evi- 
dence that the method is successful and is meeting 
with appreciation 

In the absence of President Harris, Dean L. John 
Nuttall has very successfully acted as President of 
the University. However, the manner in which 
Professor John C. Swenson has filled the Deanship 
of the College of Education has left nothing to be 
desired. Professor Swenson's adaptability and splen- 
did capability for leadership have earned him^ well- 
deserved success in this position.

COLLEGL OF FiNE ArTS 

The growth of the College of Fine Arts since its 
initiation .1 year ago has boon truly remarkable. Its 
enrolment of about one hundred and fifty members 
furnishes all the proof necessary that it was formed 
to fulfil a definite and clearly recognized need. 
In the scramble for the dollar, the cultural aspects 
and forces of life are not being lost sight of nor 
neglected. 

Dean Gcrrit de Jong, a man of engaging per- 
sonality and keen sense of humor, was indeed a happy 
selection for the pwsition he holds as Dean of this 
College. His versatility of training and accomplish- 
ments, his clear foresight and exceptional native 
ability have made his Deanship highly popular and 
successful.

Summer School 

The summer sessions at the Brigham Young Uni- 
versity are filling a definite need in a highly credit- 
able manner. The unique feeling of good fellowship 
that characterizes them represents the "Y" spirit 
at its best. 

Perhaps the greatest factor in the success of the 
summer school is the well directed and conscientious 
effort of Dr. Hugh M. Woodward, the Dean. His 
good judgment has led him to choose, and his in- 
fluence has enabled him to secure, the foremost 
educators of the country for the summer sessions. 
The excellence of the instruction and the unique 
spirit that pervades it have gained for the "Y" 
Summer School an enviable place among similar in- 
stitutions of the country. Furthermore in Dean 
Woodward the students have a wise counselor and 
sympathetic and valuable friend.

Extension Division 

Through the Extension Division the Brighani 
Young University has extended its scope of in- 
fluence. The benefits of instruction and contact are 
made available to a greater number, directly through 
extension work, indirectly through correspondence 
work. The scope of the service, the number of 
people availing themselves of it, the enthusiastic 
response with which it is meeting are proofs enough 
that it is fulfilling a definite need. 

Professor Lowry Nelson, because of his efficient 
methods, enthusiasm for his 'work, pleasing person- 
alitv, and capacity for constructive planning, is 
thoroughly qualified for the position he holds as 
Director of the Extension Division. His promptness 
and courtesv in replying to correspondence have won 
for him the respect and admiration of those who 
come in contact with him in this manner. The rapid 
growth of the Division under his direction proves 
his abilitv as an administrator.

Dean Nettie Smart 

A large proportion of the girls who attend school 
at the Brigham Young University come from such 
distances that it is impracticable for them to visit 
at home frequently. The problem of keeping these 
girls happy and contented is an important one and 
one for the solution of which sympathy, patience, 
tact, wisdom, and understanding are necessary. 

The outstanding qualifications of Nettie Neff 
Smart for the position she holds as Dean of Women 
are unquestioned. The position carries with it much 
responsibility and for this reason a successful Dean 
of Women deserves much praise. No one who 
realizes Mrs. Smart's accomplishments can question 
her success. Her character is such as to win the ad- 
miration of all those who come in contact with her. 
Her personality is pleasing, her attitude friendly, and 
her interest in her work genuine. She has gained 
the confidence and respect of the girls with whom 
she has worked.

Student Body President 

VTiilingness to serve and untiring efforts to any out those things neccssar>' for i 
successful year in student body affairs have characterized this year's student ad- 
ministration. 

Elected generally with a fair margin, the student body officers have conscientiously 
served those who put them in office. They have cooperated in a commendable manner 
and a spirit of genuine good will and fellowship has been manifested in their meetings 
and deliberations. The student managers of the various departments of student activity 
have demonstrated their leadership in that they have had the student council back them 
almost unanimously in those things which they felt were vital for their respective 
departments. 

Traditional student body events have been supported with marked enthusiasm by

the administration and careful consideration was evidenced in the choice of comnuttees 
to carry them over. 

Harmony between student body and faculty has been ver>- satisfactory to those 
who have been directly resjxjnsible for student body affairs. 

Those in charge of student body programs have endeavored to give as many students 
as possible a chance to participate. They have solicited at all times suggestions from 
the student body at large in order that programs might be of the many for the many. 

Special features which have characterized the year's administration are: The pub- 
lishing of the "College Song," student body exodus to Salt Lake to attend football 
and basketball contest- with the University of Utah; unusual support of and enthusiasm 
in the pep rallies held on various occasions; and the ver>' extraordinary- attendance and 
general success of the student body dances, especially the matinee dances.

Since the organization of the Associated Women Students of the Brigham Young 
University in 1922 it has had an active and important function in the hves of our 
girls. The organization aims to form high idcais and Listing friendships among the 
girls and to develop leadership through furnishing a field for versatile development. 

This year our organization received national recognition in that we were selected 
as one of five universities to give papers at the National Convention held at 
Urbana, Illinois. The other colleges were: The University of Michigan, Northwestern 
University, Stanford and Cornell Universities. Helen Swenson, President-elect repre- 
sented the B. Y. U., and gave a paper on "Group Organization" which has been 
tried in various forms and found very successful here. 

The association has sponsored a large number of very interesting activities this 
year. The second week of school a "get acquainted" party was held where every 
girl was made to feel at home and given a chance to form acquaintances which would 
enrich her school life. In Novmeber the Girls' Jamboree was held in the form of a 
"rummage ball." Over five hundred girls participated in a reception given by the 
faculty women at the home of Mrs. Thomas N. Taylor. The crowing event of the 
year's activities was the annual Girls' Day which was held on May 6. The day's 
program given before the entire student body in the morning, a Girls' Luncheon at 
noon with the mothers of the girls as special guests, a lawn fete. Girls' vodie and 
Girls' Day Ball gave ample opportunity for developing leadership and encouraging 
participation among all of the girls. 

Much of the success of the organization is due to the splendid way in which 
Dean Smart has cooperated with the officers in planning and executing the year's 
activities.

Public Service Bureau 

The call for B. Y. U. talent had increased to such an extent by 
3 919 that the Student Body organized a special Bureau to prepare and 
conduct these programs. This Public Service Bureau has proved to be 
one of the best advertising mediums that the school has. 

The work of the Bureau has rapidly increased until during the past 
year, nearly two hundred programs have been presented, in all parts of 
the State. Approximately two-hundred and fifty students have had the 
opportunity of appearing before the public. 

During May, three programs of special note were sent on a tour of 
the various high schools of the State. One group of students appeared 
before the high schools in Sanpete, Sevier and Emery Counties. A second 
group visited the high schools in Salt Lake and Utah Counties, and the 
third program toured the high schools north of Salt Lake. 

The Bureau truly deserves its name of "Public Service" both from the 
standpoint of the public and the students. By means of the Bureau, 
High Schools, Churches, Clubs, etc., have been able to secure first-class 
entertainment, and the students of the University have obtained the 
experience and development to be derived from displaying thier talents 
in public.

Associated Alumni of B. Y. U. 

With a constitutional objective to "promote tlie welfare of the University and 
to encourage the interest of the Alumni of the University and in each other" the 
Associated Alumni has gone through its second year of existence under a revised plan, 
with its possibilities more definitely crystallized, and its need more keenly felt than 
was ever experienced under the organization of former years. 

The monthly publication of the 'Y' ALUMNUS, the official magazine of the 
organization, has kept hundreds of former students in close touch with Alma Mater. 
This has been kept enlivened through the efforts of General Alumni Secretary A. Rex 
Johnson with the assistance of William J. Snow, Jr., and Melvin C. Miller. 

A plan for life memberships has added to the Alumni treasury considerably over 
one thousand dollars, and the Alumni office, with its task of keeping complete the 
records of eighteen thousand Alumni, has been kept intact through the payment of 
annaul dues by other loyal Alumni. The detailed records have been the basis for launch- 
ing a new idea for alumni reunions, that of having classes which were together on the 
campus reune together once every five years. 

The Alumni Board feels keenly the embryo leadership of the graduating classes 
and bids them "bon voyage" with an annual formal reception in their honor. 

Two active Alumni clubs, one in Provo and one in Salt Lake City, have held 
regular social events during the past year, and a permanent organization has been 
established in each of these cities; many other Alumni clubs meet irregularly.

University Club Alumni Male Chorus 

Sixty voices comprise the membersliip of this uniiiue ni.ile chorus of .ilumni 
members of Provo. Growing out of the University Club which w.is first organized by

year of existence has made a signal contribution to the University through its broad- 
casting and its public programs. The Chorus is directed by Professors J. W. McAllister, 
George Titzroy, and William F. Hanson, and managed by A. Rex Johnson. The officers 
of the University Club, which sponsored this community activity are: Elvon L. Jackson,

The Senior Class Year 



Success and good-fellowship have characterized the activities and undertakings of 
the Senior Class this year. Under the capable direction of President Willard H. Clarke 
and Vice-President Emma Snow, the class has enjoyed a pleasant and profitable year. 

A unique costume party, in which the Juniors joined with the Seniors, held 
I riday, November 6, in the Ladies Gymnasium, was the first social activity indulged in 
by the class. This party was a Kermcss of the Nations. The stately Seniors and 
dignified Juniors appeared as South Africans, Chinese, Cossacks, Spaniards, Indians and 
citizens of various nations. It was a rousing success. 

In the interclass debates, the Seniors won the undisputed championship, both teams 
being victorious. Gold medals were presented to the winners. 

The versatility of the class was further displayed in the unique ideas, clever 
costuming and excellent acting and direction which made the Senior Class Play, "Mrs. 
Bumpstead Leigh," one of the very best comedies produced at the "Y" this year. 

Chance is a fine clement, even in the choice of partners for a party. ^X'orking 
on this proposition the Seniors allowed the element of chance to determine the choice 
of partners for the N'alcntine Party held in the Manavu Ward Recreation Hall, 
I ebruary 14. Seniors only participated in this party and partners were chosen by 
drawing. Seeing one Senior accompany another Senior's lady friend to the party was 
interesting, and very likely, shocked students who were not aware of the nature of the 
party. 

It has become traditional for the last party of the Senior Class to be held at 
Vivian Park. Although the tradition was followed, no dearth of ideas for party 
planning was felt this year. 

In spite of the fact that there are some who pay far more into this life than 
they get out of it, and consequently refuse to contribute to such things as the Senior 
Project, the class this year paid in a larger project sum than any previous class.

Stadi 



mm 



Perhaps the greatest undertakinj; ol the Brlghani Young University at present 
is the stadium. The movement tor the stadium had its beginning in 192 5 and since 
that time the classes of 1925, 1924, 1926, and 1927 have made stadium construction 
their projects. 

Nature has been kind to the B. Y. U. in supplying such a wonderful site. The 
Utah Lake to the west, the Provo Mountains to the east. Mount Timpanogos to the 
north, and Utah Valley with Mount Nebo in the distance to the south, make the view 
from the site almost incomparable. The hill to the east of the field rises abruptly 
making a most ideal natural place for the seats to be arranged in convenient tiers. 
It is safe to say that there is ample room on this hill to afford seating accommodations 
for from eight to ten thousand jieople. 

The work is progressing steadily if not especially rapidly. The work being done 
at this time is foundational and docs not make the sftectacular app>earance many expect 
of it. 

Specific architectural plans have not yet been completed. However, the general 
plan calls for construction of seats in blocks of two thousand each, a perfect track, 
field, and gridiron, and two beautiful entrances to the field — one from the top of the 
hill, the other will be at some point on the field proper. 

The stadium is not a dream. The work has so far progressed that there is very 
good reason to hopx; that the field will be sufficiently completed and the first block 
of seats installed for use during the fall of 1928.

Junior Class Year 



The Junior class, larger than ever, more successful than ever, happier than ever, 
more studious than ever, and as ever very active in student affairs, socially, scholastic- 
ally, athletically, and forensically. 

Under the able direction of the President William F. Edwards, assisted by Marva 
Hodson, and Helen Carroll, the class has sped happily along. The bi-monthly class meet- 
ings were well attended and the programs presented were entertaining and instructive. 
Business was woven into the class fun and the affairs of the group generally were well 
and efficiently taken care of. 

A distinctive garb was adopted by the class. For the boys the garb consisted 
of brown corduroys and a striped buff and brown tailored jacket. The girls chose 
to wear the tailored jacket adopted by the boys. 

Scholastically the class has ranked high. Juniors have appeared on the honor 
role, but these were not isolated cases for the general average of the class as a whole 
was unusually good. In scholarship and in all student activities the Juniors have been 
among the most prominent. 

Every sport on the calendar found Juniors participating in goodly numbers, and 
not a few of them were outstanding. From football to swimming, the Juniors 
have given a whole-hearted and active support. They have been good losers and gracious 
winners. 

The high spot of the year socially for the whole school was the Junior Promenade. 
Formal, courteous, gracious, beautiful, and quaint; the ball sponsored by the class of 
'28 was in every way up to the standard set for B. Y. U. Proms. The Prom, al- 
though being the peak socially for the class did not stand alone in the social activities 
of the Juniors. The Junior-Senior Kermess, a joint party between classes was a fun 
fest for all. Costumes from the scant to the scrumptious were there. Nationalities 
from Timbuctoo to the U. S. A., characters from the jungles, from the plains, and from 
the drawing rooms mingled together in the most informal and happiest party of the 
year. A lake trip was enjoyed by the Junior Class towards the end of the year. Utah 
Lake and a full moon provided the setting — the class did the rest. 

The Junior class, larger than ever, more successful than ever, happier than ever, 
enjoyed its year. We've played hard, we've worked hard, and we've profited much.

Junior Promenade 



Around the theme of Wonderland, well worked out in the favors, decorations, and 
refreshments, the annual Junior Promenade, swelled, rode high, dipped down, eddied and 
swirled in a maze of mingled emotion. 

Many more than Alice were in Wonderland on the night of February- 11, 1927, 
but it is doubtful if the reactions of Alice were any more varied than those of the 
quietly happy throng in the Ladies' Gymnasium. To enter the Prom the guests 
came in through the "rabbit hole" only to find themselves face to face with large 
mirrors. Branching from the mirrors both to the left and to the right they entered 
Wonderland proper. The walls were banks of flowers, multicolored, and covering 
cvervthing. From the ceiling streamed myriads of garlands, flowers, but even the wealth 
of flowers was unable to shut out the delicate flow of tinted lights, secluded, but 
glinting through the foliage, lending truly Wonderland atmosphere to the hall. In the 
center of the floor stood a large bower, covered with ferns, flowers, and butterflys 
and in the center of the bower was the "pool of tears." In the corners were largish 
toad stools, and spider webs. Refreshments were served from a grotto and were in 
Wonderland forms. The guests ate ice cream in the shape of cats, turtles, rabbits, lions, 
strawberries, and other oddities. Engraved leather programs were favors and conformed 
to the general theme of the Promenade. 

The Promenade of 1927 is past, but the memory lingers. It was a beautiful 
thing, a high spot in the life of even.- Junior, and a quaint, happy evenmg in the life of 
cver\' guest.

The Banyan Tree 



To The Class of '28 

The following beautiful greeting sent to "The Banyan" by our friendly President 
Franklin Stewart Harris, written as he sat beneath the spreading branches of the 
greatest banyan tree, may, with all appropriateness, be inscribed to the class of '28. 
As Seniors the members of this class will have the privilege of welcoming him back 
to Alma Mater and will have the honor of receiving their baccalaureate degrees directly 
under his administration. They will be the first as a class, after his return, to go out 
and exemplify the symbol of the banyan tree, as interpreted by the B. Y. U. 

Therefore, we inscribe this greeting and these pictures and what they symbolize 
to the class of '28, and charge them with the responsibility of answering; the greeting 
with noble deeds, that they, like the myriad trunks that strengthen the banyan tree, 
may fasten deep into the fundamentals of truth and thus strengthen our Alma Mater. 



"Calcutta, India, 

December 12, 1926. 

"I am writing this greeting to 'The Banyan' while sitting under the largest banyan 
tree in the world. This tree is in the Botanical Gardens in Calcutta, India. On the 
tree there is a sign board which says that the tree is one hundred fifty-seven years 
old. Its crown has a spread of one thousand feet in circumference and it has six 
hundred and one aerial roots which have rooted in the ground. It is eighty-nine feet 
high. Its scientific name is given as Ficus Bengalensis, Linn., which shows that it is 
related to the fig tree. 

"Our entire B. Y. U. student body could stand under this tree at one time and 
all of them be shaded by its branches. As I write I see probably a dozen clusters of 
people under it and none of them are close enough to the others to hear what members 
of the other groups are saying. Among those under the tree are women with rings 
in their noses and others with their ears filled all over with ornaments of various 
kinds.

Sophomore School Year 

Under the capable leadership of President David Hart and Vice-President Mar>' Lee, 
this school year has been one of outstanding accomplishments for the class of 1929. 
Three hundred and fifty loyal class members have made the year one of pleasure and 
profit. 

Unique class uniforms stimulated a feeling of good-fellowship among the members 
of the class, that made for splendid cooperation along the lines of social activities, com- 
petitive sports, oratory, music and dramatics. At the beginning of the year the boys 
adopted a uniform of jacket, trousers and cap, of the corduroy type, trimmed with plaid. 
The girls adopted a cU'ver blue "jacqucrjack." 

Two outstanding parties have been fostered by the class. First in importance was 
the Loan I'und Ball, which was financially and socially very successful. This ball was 
instituted by the Sophomore Class of 1921 as a project for each second year class to 
promote. The fund is available for students who are in need of money to complete their 
school year. The first party of the year was a "Kid's" party, a dance of merriment and 
good time. 

The Sophomores won the honors of the Cross Country Run this year thereby en- 
titling them to a Turkey Dinner, in which the whole class took an active part. 

Sophomores have been foremost in the fields of sport, music, dramatics, literature 
and debating. 

The year has been marked with good cheer, good fellowship and successful activities.

Sophomore Loan Fund Ball 

Interest and enthusiasm of the Sophomore Class for the "biggest constructive un- 
dertaking of the school year," backed by that of the entire Student Body, was responsible 
for an unprecedented success of the annual Sophomore Loan Fund Ball. 

An active committee headed by William McCoard, with Mary Lee, Max Taylor, 
Elroy Nelson, and representatives from each of the classes collaborating, launched the 
campaign with an intensive ticket drive. The spirit of the occasion carried over to the 
business men of the city, eliciting their cooperation in contributing prizes for the sale 
contest. Individually, Miss Leah Broadbent, freshman, carried the high sales record with 
one hundred tickets, while the inter-class contest laurels wet to the Sophomores. 

The grand ball was notable from two angles. As an informal social it stands 
paramount. As to finance — the prime motive behind it all — it was a tremendous success. 
Proceeds of the ball amounted to five hundred dollars all of which was applied on the 
Fund — this the largest addition yet made by any one class. It is felt a surety that the 
accomplishment of this year will serve to only heighten and emulate the worthy cause 
of the Loan Fund among the classes that will follow from year to year.

Freshman Class Year 

The class of "30 leaves behind it a most commendable freshman record. Nearly five 
hundred students attended the first class meeting and prepared to inaugurate a banner 
year by electing Fred Moore, President; Nita Wakefield, Vice-President; and Mildred 
Davis, Secretary and Treasurer. 

Early in the year the famous "Y" spirit was appreciated and assimilated, which 
probably explains the unprecedented success of the Freshman Class in winning honor in 
the various major activities and interests of the school. 

The class reaped fame in the fields of oratory, dramatics, music, debating, athletics 
and in inter-class competition. 

One of the greatest achievements of the year was the winning of the State Champion- 
ship in Freshman football. 

Feminine pulchritude must also be granted this class, which succeeded in placing 
three contestants in the celebrity contests, one of whom won the title of "most popular 
lady", and another, second place in the final beauty adjudication. 

Consummately, the Ireshman Class of 1926-27 has given much to the success of 
the school vear.

The High School Year 

The school year of 1926-27, at the "Y" High School, has been the best, most 
enjoyable, and most prosperous of any in its history. 

For the first time "Y" High School has become a separate imit, complete in 
its organization, and complete in its activities. 

There have been several activities introduced for the first time. We were admitted 
to the State Basketball League, as a member of the Alpine division. We held our 
first Junior Promenade. We became a member of the State Debating League. Further- 
more, we have held our own assemblies. 

In the basketball world, our team, while it did not go to the State Tournament, 
did exceptionally fine work. As the infants of the Alpine division, many handicaps 
had to be overcome. The team, new, inexperienced, but determined, did creditable 
work, of which we are proud. 

On the track and the tennis court we expect big things of our men. Last year 
the "Y" High School won the State in Tennis Singles — and we have every reason to 
believe we shall take both singles and doubles this year. 

In dramatics, the annual competitive play was a delight to all who saw it. Several 
one-act plays have been presented during the year. In addition to this, many numbers 
for the assembly programs have been furnished. 

Debating for our first time, many difficulties were encountered. But the spirit 
has entered our school, the nucleus has been formed, around which a real debating record 
is to be built. 

Our first annual Junior Promenade, with all its splendor and beauty, marked the 
beginning of a new epoch in the social life of our school. 

This, together with the Senior Hop, Fools Day Party, and other regular parties 
have afforded a splendid social opportunity for everyone. 

The Yelling Contest was again won by our school. Three years we were the 
victors and the Evans-Jensen Trophy has become our permanent possession. It decks 
our halls and calls us on to new victories and new conquests. 

The County Typewriting Contest was won decisively by the "Y" High School 
typists. In the State Contest the trophy, awarded by the Mountain States Telephone 
and Telegraph Company was won by our typists. 

The student body organization has worked as an efficient unit to make the year's 
activities a success. ' 




How It Happened 



The "Y" High is growing 
Just watch what I say 
We've waited and waited 
Now we've found our day 
From near and from far 
Everyone firm and true 
We've gathered to praise you- 
Our dear White and Blue. 



Not the last, nor the first 

Of this school year's real treats 

Came our Seniors grand ball 

A remarkable feat, 

Called a "hop" we are told 

Not by one, but by all. 

Hop they did, many say 

At this Seniors' grand ball. 



Toward a leader for us 
All our interests we turned 
Myron Holgate our choice 
We happily learned. 
As a help and an aid 
Sarah Dixon we named — 
With those two at the helm 
We would march on to fame. 



Take a look at the first 
'Twas an April fools dare — 
Just the day of all days 
For a costume affair. 
We were there in the spirit, 
We were dressed for the ball 
And Fool's day of this year 
Was portrayed by us all. 



Melba Lee, Merle Vance, 

Paul Holt, and Neff Smart — 

Each one was to help 

In our great onward march. 

First a party just fine 

At the foot of the hill 

Let us know that this year. 

With good things would be filled. 



Debating our first year 

We worked on to the last, 

Though our spoils were not great 

We did gain power fast. 

Friends from North, friends from South 

In our friendliest fray 

Were glad to take notice of all we did say. 



Basket ball in our school 
For the first time in years 
Came into its own place — 
We got into a league. 
To our men we give honor 
To their school were they true- 
For they gave all their best 
To the White and the Blue. 



In our halls is a cup 

'Tis an emblem of gain 

Three times reached the goal 

That led on to fame. 

The Evans-Jensen cup 

For yelling is ours, 

We've won — glad to say, 

One thing from high powers. 



Then our interests we turned 
To our one annual play 
"Seven Chances" its name — 
Real success crowned its day 
To repeat it, the call came 
We did answer the call 
And again did we play 
To the pleasure of all. 



On the track and the court 
Our men will gain fame 
Push onward, press onward 
As in past, now the same. 
Dame Fortune smile on us 
And our pleasure not mar — 
That the "State" we may win 
Spread our glory afar. 



Junior Prom — thee we hail 
As the best of the year. 
That aught can surpass thee. 
We have nothing to fear. 
Gliding here, dashing there 
Pretty belles, handsome beaus. 
Of its beauty, its grace 
Not half can be told. 



From our halls, worthy Seniors 

Will go to far realms. 

We'll grow, and we'll prosper 

And bring glory to them. 

All the future holds treasures 

And pleasures in store 

For all who do enter 

The "Y" High School door.

The School Year 



^X'llcn the world is convinced that "This is the Place," 
Perhaps you'll be proud to look back and retrace 

Just what happened, and read of how quickly time flew 
While you were attending dear B. Y. U. 

When two I'rcshies first came and asked Hayes for a card 
They found it not easy to read, but quite hard. 

For one asked, "What means this, when it says here 'three quarters'?" 
"Why seventy-five cents. Can't you read? You big tortoise!' 

One week passed full of greeting and wrong registration. 

From going to classes we got consolation. 
Yet this tranquil peace was not to last long. 

For out flashed green caps, which to Freshies belonged. 

After one night of dancing and handshakmg gay. 

The strong youths who survived rose at break of the day 

And Mount Timpanogos they started to climb, 

While those who stayed home missed a "whale of a time." 

Pardoc flashed the first play, "We've Got to Have Money," 
Which struck all the students as being quite funny. 

But on the next day o'er our face a cloud came 

When the Cougars got beat in the C. Teacher's game. 

We wonder what "stude" could forget the great day 
When the Aggies were held by the Cougars at bay. 

In that killing and thrilling Founder's Day game. 
Which for us predicted new glory and fame. 

Right along with the swing of the "formal dance" talk 

Came the classes with new stuff in which they would walk. 

The seniors like patriots in the white and the blue, 

With the other class' dress made a real striking view. 

But the shock of class costumes was not to last long, 

For the Young Cougar team started on a new song. 

They walloped the Teachers by a thirty — "O" score, 

While the Senior Court sentenced F'rosh as ne'er before. 

Monday morning the students were told how to vote, 
A service we thought the school would not promote. 

But the "uppers," not bothered, held great celebration 
By giving a "Kermess" of all the great nations. 

On the day after "Minick" the students all rushed 

To the old Cummings field to see Utah get crushed. 

And although they would liked to have brought home the bacon. 
The fact that they scored was a big consolation. 

The students returned from the game broke, and found 

The Soph's Loan Fund signs, and their salesmen all 'round. 

And though every "stude" had to borrow his dollar. 
They all came across without giving a "hollar". 

The Cross Country Run gave us all a surprise 

When a Freshie named Bentley walked off with the prize. 
And all afternoon how the students would run 

To get home for Thanksgiving and four days of fun. 



\ 




1S8 



"XH^^ 




The last of the quarter was one grand event. 

For the Frosh were released from their weeks of torment. 
Of using back doors and of wearing green caps. 

And of receiving spats on the "backs of their laps." 

The most of the students were forced to conclude 

That a few upperclassmen got acting quite crude. 

When in Freshie assembly they got up as tranced, 

And followed a "guy" to the gym where they danced. 

But relief from exams and class fights came about 

When they danced with the Frosh till the lights were turned out. 
And the first quarter ended with everyone glad 

And as pleased as could be for the fun they had had. 

The new quarter started as fast as the first, 

And more text-books, MY! How they drained on the purse. 
The "Stadium Co-op" or the regular book store 

"Added sums to the fund," we're told, as ne'er before. 

The students were thrilled at the annual play 

Of the Seniors who staged "Mrs. Bumpstead Leigh." 

On the next night the girls had a regular spree 

And the time of their lives at the Girls' Jamboree. 

The week before Christmas and all through the halls. 
Not a student escaped hearing Banyan sales calls. 

The prizes were flashed in the show case with care. 

In hopes that the salesmen would each get their share. 

Just before students left for their Christmas vacation, 
The Banyan as host caused one grand animation. 

The program at morning and the dance at the night. 

Topped the whole week off and left everything right. 

The first of the year started things with a boom. 

Debaters and hoopsters were found in each room. 

Working and hoping till things sure did seem 

That the "whole darn bunch" would be making the team. 

The first game of the season gave students a thrill 

When we beat the old "Grads" to the finish, but still 

The sadness came to us on Saturday night 

When the Apex team beat us in spite of our fight. 

The boys of the school put on feminine dress 

And staged "Three Y's Men" which showed real cleverness. 
While in Logan though Cougars were battling for "Y," 

The Aggies came out with the best of the tie. 

The students were roused on Saturday night 

When they heard the old bell whose clang told of the fight 
And the clash of the Cougars with Redskins and Utes 

And how "Y" succeeded in conquering the "brutes." 

The "Y" Girl Debaters though hard to refute 

Won from the Aggie but lost to the Ute. 
At Vivian Park for two complete days 

The students all reveled on skiis and on sleighs.

The Junior Prom seemed to outdo expicctation. 

Its beauty called forth lots of real admiration. 
"Wonderland" wove round the students a spell, 

Till they felt that no other Prom this could excel. 

"Monsieur Bcaucaire," the competitive play, 

^X'as a real success without dismay. 
The costumes were j;orgcous and settings superb. 

And some of the actors could really be heard. 

The fellows who swam on the Cougars' team, 

Showed they were better at paddling the stream 
Than fellows who came from the north and the south. 

So they brought home the bacon to "Y's" hungry mouth. 

The last of the quarter gave Banyan full sway. 

Celebrity contests grew close each day. 
Each beautiful lady and popular "gent" 

Vied for first place. 'Twas some grand event. 

The Banyan week ended and for this event 

The program they gave was most excellent. 
That night at the dance 'mid the prizes and candy 

The "Informal" style proved itself very dandy. 

"Elijah" carried us back to that day. 

In the Bible when Ahab and idols held sway. 
The music was fine, but it failed to inspire 

The God of Elijah to bring down the fire. 

The Seniors on "Y Day" proceeded to climb 

With some Freshies, all loaded and covered with lime. 
To the "Y" for their annual cleaning campaign. 

And they did the job right, in spite of the rain. 

The "White Mule" and "Bluebird" got into a scrap, 

The Mule kicked the Bluebird nigh off of the map. 
But that the Bluebird flew back 'with fire in his eye. 

And placed three good men, no one will deny. 

Rowe, the Track captain, showed all at the meet 

That at jumping and running he could not be beat. 
The result was that "Y" in spite of its size 

Just missed by an inch of getting the prize. 

Girl's Day! Men? Of course they succumb 

To the wily enchantment of smiling "Yum Yum". 
A program, a date, the May Fete and Dance 

Filled the air and the men with a dizzy romance. 

Then their Banyans and Tennis, a track meet and hike, 

And Senior and Honor day all of the like. iV,' 

And every event only stressed the conclusion j > V 

That "This is the Place" and not a delusion. | J! | 

And when one looks back at the year with its fun. 

And thinks of the chums and the friends he has won. 
He pities the Senior whose four years are through 

And envies the Frosh who'll be new at Young U.

The "Y" News 



Unusual ability, untiring effort, careful planning, and unity of purpose arc the 
factors which have been responsible for the remarkable success of The "Y" News during 
the past year. The "Y" News has been raised to a new and higher level. This is 
not said with any intention of depreciating the work of those in charge of the publica- 
tion in previous years. To those acquainted with the excellent work done in years 
past, the statement that the work has been raised to a new and higher level will convey 
an idea of the high standard the publication has attained this year. 

The success of the paper is due in very large measure to the ability, skill, willing- 
ness to work, and the sincerity of Gail Plummer, the editor-in-chief. Gail's purpose 
has been to reflect the spirit of the "Y" and the attitude of the students. The paper 
he has edited has been a credit to the B. Y. U., and has truly caught and recorded its 
unique spirit. Art and skill have been shown in the arrangement of the paper. "Fair- 
ness" has been the watchword. Prejudice and bias have had no place in it. The 
opinions of the students have been sought and printed. The truth has been scrupulously 
recorded regardless of how some few may have felt with regard to it. 

The staff was selected on a competitive basis from sixty contestants. Most of 
them had had experience as writers for high school and college publications previous 
to their appointment to The "Y" News staff. The tryouts were conducted over a period 
of four weeks, during which time the articles were submitted under a non de plume. 
Credit is due the staff for high quality writing, accuracy, and a willingness to cooperate.

The Banyan 



In this, the "This is the Place" edition of the Banyan, we have tried to portray 
some of the beauty of the glorious country in which wc live with a hope that it might 
tend to heighten the appreciation for what we have, and also to depict some of the 
"high spots" in the school year just passed. 

This year marks the commencement of a new epoch in the history of our school — 
the commencement of a new fifty years. In harmony with the progress of the institu- 
tion wc have attempted to place the Banyan on a bigger and better scale by enlarging 
the size of its pages, and broadening the scope of its appeal. 

We have introduced a number of new features into tiic book, such as the rather 
extensive scenic section, enlarged campus and introductory sections, devotional and other 
sections which come under the divisional heading, "Features," autograph and some other 
additions that will be noticed upon perusal of the book. In order to make room for 
these new features it became necessary to cut down some of the others which have re- 
ceived more space in past editions of the Banyan. However, wc have attempted to give 
each activity a relatively proportionate amount of space. 

We hope that some of the joy that the staff has experienced in building this book 
may be felt by the readers of it.

The Banyan Quartet 

"Yes sir, wonderful little quartet that!" Being just as modest as we can, yet wc 
must, in fairness to the universal opinion relative to the organization, say this much for 
it. Otherwise someone is sure to "fee! hurt." Coming into existence in time to make its 
debut into society during the second devotional program given by The Banyan, the 
"Quartet" has had a season of exceptional success. It has appeared in places varying 
from the "sands of the sea-shore" to the Athenian rostrum of a city park; it has wafted 
its melodious harmonies through the ethereal spaces via K S L, cleaning the atmosphere 
of all static; it has traveled far and wide but it "hasn't made a penny with its boom, 
zing, zings." (The latter comment is dedicated to the Male Glee Club.) But you have 
not heard the last of the Banyan Quartet. If you are fortunate enough to travel through 
the parks of Southern Utah and Arizona this summer, we shall "favor" you (if you 
make special request) with "Spring Time in the Rockies" — as revised by Pratt Bethcrs — 
and perhaps with another song or two. So long until then.

ASAHI. C. LAMBERT 
Chairman Debating Council 



The Forensic Year 



The Forensic season of 1926-27 set a standard of achievement which coming years 
will find most difficult to surpass, or even to equal. To no one doer can credit for this 
record be laid, but certain individuals are responsibh- in a great part for the unusual 
results of the year. The work of the debating council including A. C. Lambert, chair- 
man, Ur. ^X^ |. Snow, J. C. Swenson, and Elmer Miller, must be noted at the outset. 
The support of the student body and the general public has been gratifying indeed, 
and has been no small factor in determining the success of the year's work. 

The new attitude adopted toward debating has been a contribution of the past 
season which will be of permanent value. The old idea of debating as a formal 
argumentative contest, in which teams won victory or suffered defeat according to 
set and technical rules of judging, has given way very largely to a less stereotype 
."•ttitude toward the activity of public discussion. The idea of formal victory has been 
replaced in most instances by the desire and the attempt of speakers to bring the audi- 
ence to their personal view of the question, and in this thundering argument 
has given way to the more entertaining and enjoyable use of wit, of elegance, of erudi- 
tion, of logic. In the unusual intercollegiate debates presented during the season, this 
new attitude has been uppermost. 

Even if distinctions could be claimed on no other grounds, the variety of debates 
presented during the past year would mark the year of 1926-27 as outstanding. The 
scries of debates with Wyoming, Idaho, Montana on the liquor question proved to be 
of current interest to the general public. The debate with Colorado marked an epoch 
in debating at the "Y", as it is the first time a women's team from outside the state 
has met B. Y. U. women debaters. This year the Brigham Young University sent a team 
to California where they engaged in a series of debates with universities on the coast. 
The University of Southern California paid us a return visit, the subject of Mussolini 
as benefactor to Italy being argued. 

As is the custom each year the Brigham Young University men's and women's 
triangular debates were staged with the U. of U. and the U. A. C. Great interest and en- 
thusiasm were shown in these debates, because th<' subjects discussed were of current 
concern, and also because decisions were given. 

The effect of this remarkable series of contests has been to arouse unprecedented 
interest among the general public, and to win the support of the students to the activity.

The California Sympossia 

The season of debating for the Young University was formally opened Friday 
January 28, 1927, when Young University represented by Edgar Fuller and Don Clutt 
met the Occidental College debaters, Mr. Tiyler and Mr. Krienler. The sub,ect of 
debate was "Resolved: That this house condemn the present governmental tendency 
to restrict free speech, press and assemblage." 

It appeared that the men from the "Y" had the matter in hand better than their 
friends from the Coast although their delivery was not as smooth. The debate however 
was informal, so there was no decision rendered. 

March 12, in College Hall the question, "Resolved: That Mussolini is a bene- 
factor to Italy," was very well discussed by the representatives of the University of 
Southern California and the B. Y. U. Mr. Hendley and Mr. Sagertsen upheld the af- 
firmative for California while Willard H. Clarke and Raymond Holbrook handled the 
negative for the Young University. The debate was non-decision with an open forum 
discussion after. 

The i;entlemen from California maintained that the Italian dictator was a bene- 
factor to his country because he had stabalized its government and financial institutions 
ond had made Italy a recognized world power. The local artists claimed that he 
had harmed the individual rights of citizens, socially, economically, and politica ly, and 
that this harm far outweighed the good he had done, therefore he was a malefactor 

to his country. 

The debate was well attended and was enjoyed by all present. 

The B. Y. U. debating team, Sherman Christensen and Leon Evans, accompanied 
by Coach A. C. Lambert left Provo for Los Angeles on March 13, 1927. 

In Los Angeles they met Occidental College and the University of Southern Cali- 
fornia on the question "Resolved: That Mussolini is a benefactor to Italy. Both 
debates were of the open forum, non-decision type. The audiences were very good and 
the debaters considered that the contests were successful. 

At Stockton the debate was on the same question as at Los Angeles and was ot 
the non-decision type. The "Y" News reported that the team neglected to send in 
reports of the debates but it is well known that non-decision contests are always 
won by the team that is doing the reporting so the comment was unnecessary. 

The trip into the California domains did much to bring the Colleges there into 
closer fellowship with the B. Y. U. It is to be hoped that the "Y" will even more 
extensively broaden her relationships in this activity next year.

BRIGHAM YOUNG UNIVERSITY vs. 
UNIVERSITY OV WYOMING 

The afternoon of I'cbrunry 18, DcAlton I'.irtridge and Glenn Dickson representin}; 
the B. Y. U., met the University of >X'yominj; in Collrj;e Hall, on the question, "Re- 
solved: That the Volstead Act should be so modified as to permit the sale of light 
wine and beer." 

The popularity and versatility of thf question itself caused wide-spread interest 
in this debate, and gave the participants a chance for some very clever work. The 
proposition was well handled by both teams. 

This debate was conducted in the new style. Any person in the audience was 
permitted to ask the debaters questions after the main discussion. No decision. 

BRIGHAM YOUNG UNIVERSITY vs. 
MONTANA STATE COLLEGE 

The B. Y. U forensic artists, Ross Pugmiri' and Klroy Nelson failed to convince 
more than one of the three judges that we should not legalize the sale of light wine 
and beer, in a discussion with the Montana State College of Bozeman, held in College 
Hall, March 7. 

The Montana boys, Joe Livers and Henry Gardner, brought a very interesting new 
argument into the arena. Their main contention was, that prohibition in its present 
form was successful in the major part of the United States, but that there was a need 
for a change in fifteen states, and light wine and beer was the logical remedy for the 
situation. This was an unexpected attack with which the locals were unable to cope. 
The debate was interesting from the first speech to the last rebuttal, both teams being 
able to handle themselves on the platform to advantage. 

BRIGHAM YOUNG UNIVERSITY vs. IDAHO 

The B. Y. U. platform artists, Don Cluff and Glenn Dickson were successful in up- 
holding the negative side of the question, "Resolved: That the 18th Amendment should 
be so modified as to permit the sale of light wine and beer," against the team repre- 
senting the University of Idaho. The debate took place in College Hall on March 11. 

The Idaho team, Warren J. Montgomery and I.oel Simmons, attempted very clever- 
ly to shift the burden of proof by saying that the locals had to show how the prohibition 
law in its present form could be enforced. The B. Y. U. men came back and showed 
very plainly that the burden of proof still rested with the affirmative, and that they 
had to show that modification of the law would remedy the situation. 

This debate marked the opening of forensic relationship between the two schools.

MEN'S TRIANGLE DEBATES 

The Men's triangle debates between the U. of U., U. A. C. and B. Y. U., were held 
on February 8, 1927. The question for these debates this year was, "Resolved: That 
this house condemn the present tendency to encroach upon free speech, press, and 
assemblage." 

The "Y" affirmative team, Sherman Christensen and Leon Evans met the U. of U. 
in College Hall. Sherman and Leon successfully upheld the affirmative side of the 
freedom of speech question. Profes!:or Peterson of the Agricultural College in his 
decision said that the debate was very good from the standpoint of delivery, repose of 
speakers and from fairness of dealing with the question. 

The negative team, Melvin Strong and Raymond Holbrook accompanied by A. C. 
Lambert represented the "Y" at Logan. The one man judge, John K. Edmunds, from 
the U. of U. rendered the decision in favor of the A. C. 

All three negative teams in the triangle debates traveled and were defeated, conse- 
quently all the affirmative teams won at home. Hence the audience in each case was 
satisfied. 

ORATORICAL CONTESTS 

"International Good Will or General World Peace," was the subject for the Rotary 
Club Oratorical Contest which, prior to this year, was known as the Levan Oratorical 
Contest. There was a great deal of enthusiasm worked up for this event. The final 
contest was held December 15 when the winner of the medal. Reed Morrill, gave his 
oration. Reed was also successful in winning from a large field the right to represent 
the "Y" in the Rocky Mountain Oratorical contest, staged at Laramie, Wyoming, 
He brought home third place honors. 

The Irvine Oratorical Contest was held February IS. Elroy Nelson and Dc Alton 
Partridge participated in the finals of it. Mr. Nelson's subject was "East is East and 
West is West." He treated the labor problems in the Hawaiian Islands. "Utah, the 
Wealth of the West," was the subject of Mr. Partridge's oration. He dealt with the 
resources in Utah and their conservation. Both speeches were well given. Mr. Nelson 
was declared the winner and received the medal given by Mr. R. R. Irvine, Jr. 

"Patriotism" was the theme for the Jex Oratorical Contest this year. DeAlton 
Partridge and Thomas Reynolds were the final contestants. Mr. Partridge spoke on "The 
New Patriotism." The subject of Mr. Re)nold's speech was "Love of Country." Both 
speeches were well organized and delivered. Mr. Partridge won the decision.

WOMEN'S TRIANGLE DEBATES 

The question for the women's triangle debates between U. of U., U. A. C, and 
B. Y. U., was, "Resolved: That fraternities and sororities be abolished from American 
Colleges." 

The "Y" University affirmative team consisting of Esther Eggertsen, Catherine 
Eyring, and Ada Anderson, were victorious over the Agricultural College negative team 
in a debate staged in College Hall, I'ebruary 1. 

The judge in making his decision said that the speeches of the "Y" team were 
far better than their rebuttals while the opposite thing was true of the A. C. debaters. 

The negative team consisting of Ethel Lowry, Mary Graham, and Marie Hacking, 
debated the U. of U., in Salt Lake City, February 1. The decision was given to the 
U. of U., by a slight margin because of genera! effectiveness in presenting the case. 

BRIGHAM YOUNG UNIVERSITY VS. COLORADO 

The "Y" was represented by E'thcl Lowry and Mary Graham in a debate with the 
University of Colorado in College Hall, April 1. This was the first time a women's 
team from outside of the state has met Brigham Young University women debaters. 

Colorado, upholding the affirmative, was able to carry away a three-judge decision 
on the question: "Resolved: That the modern tendency of married women to follow 
gainful occupations outside of the home is objectionable."

The Music Year 



Each branch of the music department has h id almost unprecedented success this year. 

Under the very professional baton of Professor Florence J. Madscn, the combined choral and 
ladies' glee club work attained a perfection of art entirely consistent with her exceptional ability 
and training. Mrs. Madsen brings to her work a background of training unsurpassed by any 
in her line, including degrees of Bachelor and Master of Music, from the Chicago Musical Col- 
lege and numerous certifications from some of the best schools and most noted teachers of the 
day, including the New England Conservatory of Music — from which she received a diploma 
with high honors — Herbert Witherspoon, Victor Harris and others. Companioning her theo- 
retical training, Mrs. Madsen has a record of practical achievement which but few ever attain. 
She has been contralto soloist for some of the finest organizations and churches in the east, in- 
cluding the Old South Church, the Apollo Club, Handel and Haydn Society and the St. Ce- 
celia Society, all of Boston, and the Musicians Club of New York. Professor Florence J. Madscn 
has a combined training in theory and practice that college instructors in other lines might well 
emulate. 

In Professor Franklin Madsen, the Male Glee Club has had an efficiently exacting director. 
Taking at the beginning of the year a small group of inexperienced and untrained singers, he 
developed an organization of sixty voices which was unexcelled by any college glee club in the 
entire region, notwithstanding the fact that other colleges pick their voices, while here any stu- 
dent is eligible to membership regardless of his musical inaptitude. Being ambitious to place the 
musical curriculum of the B. Y. U. on a truly College standard, Professor Madsen has been most 
zealous in securing the technical training that would enable him so to do. During his seven years 
at the B. Y. U. he has not only done extensive work in his own line, but he has branched out into 
other scholastic fields as well, taking out his A. B. and doing work which in the near future 
will entitle him to a M. A. Musically, Professor Madsen has covered a scope of training which 
is phenomenal in its breadth. Commencing his musical training in 1912, he has since taken 
out certificates and degrees from the most outstanding studios and colleges in America and 
Europe, among which might be mentioned the New England Conservatory of Music of Boston, 
the Royal College of Music, the Smith, Borland, and Kitson Music studios of London; the 
Brancour, Clocz, Plamandon, Guyot, Robert, and the Buisson studios of Paris; the Lustman 
Studio of Berlin; the Pietro Studio of Rome; and the Chicago Musical College — from the latter 
receiving the degrees of Bachelor and Master of Music, and Bachelor of Music Education. This 
background of technical training combined with his varied practical experience places Pro-

he together with his wife, Professor Florence J. Madsen, because of their exceptional achieve- 
ments, have been appointed members of the faculty of the Chicago Musical College Master 
Course Session for the coming summer. 

The B. Y. U. Concert Orchestra under the direction of Professor Le Roy Robertson has un- 
doubtedly done its finest work this year. 

On December 5, 1926, the first concert of the season was given in the Stake Tabernacle. 
A record audience was in attendance and the orchestra gave a splendid account of itself in 
Beethoven's first Symphony and the William Tell Overture. 

At the Leadership concert Mr. Gustave Buggert, cellist, played Mr. Robertson's Spanish 
Serenade with orchestra. The Light Cavalry Overture by Von Suppe and lighter numbers were 
also given. On February 28, 1927, the orchestra gave a delightful program including the Peer 
Gynt Suite by Grieg and Valse BriUiante by Professor Robertson. Master Eugene Jacobsen, 
the wonderful Utah boy violinist, was the soloist.

Oratorio ''Elijah" 



The greatest achievement of the music department during 
producing of "EUjah", the famous Mendelssohn Oratorio, as 
scenery and costumed. Though the Oratorio as such has been 
never before has it been dramatized and produced as an opera, 
has been achieved by any other college or amateur company. 
Music Department has 
been so presumptuous as 
this and yet no greater 
success has been attained. 

The idea of having two 
casts compete against each 
other for group and indi- 
vidual awards proved quite 
successful. It added con- 
siderable more interest to 
the affair and m o r e 
prestige to the awards. A 
silver loving cup from the

grouped into two casts, 
the "Elijah" of each com- 
pany acting as captain. 
The night for the appear-

the second. 

Nine judges adjudicated 
the contest.

The Dramatic Year 

"This is the place" for j;ood dramatic productions. Conclusive prool ol iliis tad 
may be obtained from glancing over the activities of the year. Professor Pardee very 
appropriately chose "We've Got to Have Money" for the first play of the season. It 
was a clever comedy of a young man's attempt to win his lady fair and prove himself 
competent in business as well as in love. The result was that Sherman Christenscn 
proved to Lois Bowen bi-yond a doubt that he was good in both and ready to care 
for a wife. 

A character play, "Minick," was chosen for the next production. The interest 
centers around old man Minick who comes to Chicago to live with his son and daughter- 
in-law. The habits, ideals, and problems of the younger and older generations were de- 
liijhtfully contrasted. Ross Pugmirc in the title role did exceptional work. 

"Mrs. Bumpstcad Leigh" decided to make her mark in society. The seniors pre- 
sented her with the problems and difficulties she encountered in managing her mother, 
marrying off her sister, and trying to make them both over into different social beings. 
The cast was a competent one and the play was well done. Emma Snow directed 
it under the supervision of Professor Pardoe. 

"The Three Y's Men," annual all-boys show, was full of the atmosphere of a 
college campus and specifically that of the B. Y. U. It was a combination of musical 
comedy and drama written and directed by Professor Pardoe, the music department 
aiding in its line. The "girls" were very charming and knew how to get the desired 
response from the fellows. A thrill went over the audience as the lights of the library 
shone out and above it the "Y" flamed forth. The play was a decided success and 
kept one in laughter most of the time. 

The annual competitive play "Monsieur Beaucaire," was a beautiful costume play 
of old London. 

The climax and finale of the year's dramatic productions were reached with the 
presentation of the Theta Alpha Phi play "Seventh Heaven." It was the most finished 
of all the productions. The stoiy is centered around a French sewer rat who is "a 
very remarkable fellow," and a timid, but charming girl. Mary Woolley and Carl Harris 
were in the leading roles. They, along with Barbara Green and Milton Perkins were 
the outstanding characters although all of the parts were exceptionally well done. It 
was a splendid ending for the dramatic year.

EUGENE L. ROBERTS 
Dirtclor of Alhlflics 



CHARLES J. HART 
Assislani Director of Athletics 



Athletic Staff 



The best reason for the good showing the Brigham Young university has made 
during its recent seasons of athletic conquest has been, in the minds of critics, the able 
direction the coaching staff has given to the diversified and usually inexperienced 
material. 

Director Eugene Lusk Roberts served in 1926-27 his seventeenth year in the ath- 
letic department, being absent only one year since 1909, that being the year 1924-2 5 
when he was given leave of absence to take over the directorship of the magnificent 
Weber gymnasium at Ogden. He is not only an able-bodied, capable coach of athletic 
activities, but has a complete knowledge of all phases of physical training. He has 
been known for his clean training practices and his clever ideas throughout the Rocky 
Mountain conference. 

Charles J. Hart, coach of football, and track, has ably directed these phases of 
the athletic system with the aid of Roberts during the past two years, being ap- 
pointed to the position of coach from Teton high school at Driggs, Idaho, where he 
was coach for two years. Hart was previously known as a stellar track man at the 
Utah Agricultural College. At this institution, he not only starred in the two-mile 
run, cross-country runs, and -made a position as all-conference end in football, but took 
an active interest in all phases of athletics, adopting physical education as his major. 

The r-rosh and the Varsity lines have received very valuable aid from part-time 
Coach Philbrook Jackson, all-conference tackle of Big Ten, three-year letter man, 
captain, and favorite of Stagg, his coach at Chicago. 

Coaches Leaf and Webb, mentioned further in their departments, have rendered 
assistance to this staff.

Inter-Sectional Game 

CALIFORNIA GAME, AT PROVO 

5iorf: « y. V. — O; CalifornW'-l 7 

Nol taking into consideraiiun somt of the Jicomplishmcnts of ihc California team, a number of the 
spectators may have been slightly disappointed in the fact that the inexperienced Cougar team was only 
able to hold the powerful California Agricultural College eleven to a score of seventeen points. 

The game was played on the 'Y" field under perfect weather conditions and with eight new men 
in the blue and white jerseys. Both teams were nervous as is usually the case in preseason games, par- 
ticularly when it is the first interseclional game for one of the tc.ims. This tenseness was disastrous to the 
Cougars for it made possible the first score of the Mustangs when l.cdercr crossed the line on a sensational 
end run on the first play after the California team recovered the fumbled kick-off. 

Not until the fourth quarter, after a place-kick from the Youngsters eight-yard line, and a completed 
forward pass and a sprint for touchdown by Hussey of California had finished the scoring did the Cougars 
threaten the visitors' goal. This however, they did twice in the final p.riod.

MONTANA GAME, AT BOZEMAN, MONTANA 

Score: B. Y. U. — 0: Montana — 2 7 

Battling against odds of a heavier and more experienced team as well as adverse weather conditions 
the Cougar squad was unable to hold the final quarter rush of the Montanans and came out the losers 
by twenty-seven points to nothing in a game played at Bozeman. Montana, on November 6. 

Scoring on a break in the first quarter the Bobcats held a safe margin until the final period when 
they resumed their onslaught to pile up three additional touchdowns.

After having the game safely put away as a victory for Young University, a belated rally, featured 
by the brilliant running of Brown, opposing half-back, and an aerial attack, gave the Colorado Teachers 
a 12-6 victory, on the Greeley, Colorado, field, October 9. 

With the score 6-6 at the end of the third period as a result of two dropkicks for Young and a 
touchdown for Colorado, Young passed to their opponents' ten-yard line, were held, and defeated by a 
pass to Brown, who raced through for a touchdown.

Cougars, the score of the encounter, which was played on Cummings field. November 13. was a 7-7 tic. 

The score of the first period was 0-0. but the slippery field, weight and mud cleats of the Utes 
could not be held by the lighter, dry-shod Cougars. Forward passes and a fumble were saviors for the 
"Y" in the last quarter.

the final score being 19-6. 

The concluding scores, a hard-earned straight football touchdown for Young, in the third quarter, 
and a similar score in the same period by Colorado, brought the score to 19-6. The figures showed twelve 
first downs for Young and thirteen for Colorado.

The Basketball Year 

Although the final tallies indicated but one victory for the Cougars in the basket- 
ball season of 1927, considering the fact that only one first-string man, and he a one- 
vear man, returned to contend for honors on the waxed floor, the showing was very 
commedable. The majority of the games were lost by small margins or last-minute 
rallies, one of these fatal rallies coming too late, giving the Youngsters a victory over 
the Utah team. 

The first series, played against the Aggies at Logan, resulted in one close 50-47 
game, Logan barely winning in the last minutes by stemming a Cougar rally; and one 
more decisive victory, 62-34 for Logan, the second night. 

The second series of games will be long remembered as the hair-raising series of 
repeated ties, closely missed long shots, and last minute defeats, against the Utes in the 
"Y" coop on January 28 and 29. 

A peculiar coincidence will be recalled; the score was 21-15 in favor of Young 
at the end of the first half, both nights, and the final scores were similar, being 42-39 
the first and 37-3 5 the second night in favor of Utah. 

The Montana invasion was a complete disaster, the Montana team of Utah boys 
completely overwhelming the Cougars and walking away with a 64-37 victory the first 
and a 49-3 3 victory the second night of play. 

Close guarding featured the contest the second night resulting in low scores for 
both teams in contrast to the brilliant offensives and lack of guarding the first night.

During the second halt of the first and the first h.ilf of the second games tho 
Cougars demonstrated their latent ability by scoring as many points as their opponents, 
but it seems that too much of this ability was latent. 

After losing their ninth consecutive game on Friday night through the mishap of 
another last-minute rally, the Church school team paid its tithing with a win of the 
tenth game, the second of the series played at Salt Lake on Feburary 26 and 27, scoring 
40-34 in favor of the Cougars. 

The Cougars led quite safely throughout the contest until the final minutes of the 
contest. Just'before the gun the score was 34-32 for Young when, as usual, Dow began 
his sensational work by dropping one through from center to tie the score. 

The necessary five-minute period proved the downfall of the Redskins, Collins 
scoring a field goal and two foul pitches and Reeves dropping in a double counter to 
give the Cougars six against nothing for the Utes.

The Utah Aj;ricultural College took the List two games of the season from the 
Cougars in a series played on the "Y" gym rectangle March 4 and 5, downing the fight-

With the first win of the season still fresh in their minds, the entire student body 
backed the team in this final series with a spirit nothing short of remarkable. 

Both games were remarkable in that the Cougars outscorcd and outplayed their 
opponents in the second periods of the contests, and narrowly missed scoring victories 
in both contests. Robert's comeback was apparent, and it was onlv a temporary waver- 
ing in the final seconds that spelled defeat for the tenth and eleventh times for the

The Team 

The Swimming Year 

Reflating the performance of 1926, the Young university swimming team scored 
the only conference victory of the year for the Blue, easily winning their dual meets, 
and scoring 42 points against a second place of 20 p)oints in the Conference meet. 

The most outstanding individual athletic representative of the Brigham Young 
University this year is also a member of the swimming team. His name is Bud Shields, 
born, reared, and educated thus far in Provo. He is the first man since the days of 
Larson and Richards (Alma) to be picked to represent the school in national competi- 
tion. However, because of Freshmen being excluded from the meet, he was barred from 
competition this year. He holds well over twenty state and conference records, and 
has beaten the national collegiate time in the 440-yard swim and the 220-yard swim. 
His time in the 220-yard was 2:23, while the winner of the national collegiate meet this 
year was clocked at 2:26.6. 

Shields also has to his credit first place victories in the 40-yard free style, 150-yard 
back stroke, 100-yard free style, 200-yard breast stroke, and relays. 

No small amount of the credit for these victories is due to Coach C. S. Leaf, who 
has been swimming coach of the Provo High School and the B. Y. U. for some five 
years. Previous to his coming here from England, neither Provo High School nor Young 
University had scored creditably in swimming events, while since he has been here, 
Provo High has taken three consecutive state titles and the Cougars have now won their 
second Conference victory. Shields, Christopherson, Hasler, Harris, Dangerfield, Booth, 
and others are strictly products of this remarkable coach. 

Leaf will likely continue on as coach next year and is expected to bring in another 
Conference victory, along with the others — which we expect to take in tow next year.

Track 

Speaking strictly from a futuristic viewpoint, one might say that the track season 
at Brigham Young was a very successful one. Although the first meet was another 
characteristic 1926-27 heart-rending two-point defeat, the indications from that meet 
were \cry encouraging. 

The meet, held April 22, on "Y" field, was in opposition to the Utah Agricultural 
College team, last year's Conference champions, and the fin.ii score was 73 ' j to 71 'S 
in favor of the I.oganites. The score w.is not decided until the next event to the last 
one, and it was in this event, the half-mile relay, that a poorly passed baton slowed up 
the Young team sufficiently to cause them to lose the race. The Cougars redeemed 
themselves on the last race, however, easily striding the mile relay to victory. 

The impressive feature of the meet was that the Provo team walked off with ten of 
the seventeen first places, the majority of them by wide margins. This indication shows 
that the team has a good chance in a State or Conference meet where firsts are the 
deciding factor. 

Rowe, captain, scored his usually impressive triumph walking off with a first in the 
century", furlong, 220-yard hurdles, and the broad jump, giving him twenty points 
and high point honors. 

Probably the best performances for Young were Rowe's century run in which two 
watches clocked him at 9 4 5 seconds and two at ten seconds flat, while a fifth was 
disqualified; and Corbett's discus heave of 1 3 5 feet. Corbett has thrown the plate 141 
feet, exceeding the Conference record by two feet. 

Another near record was made by Phillips of the Aggies when he tossed the javelin 
182 feet, just six feet under the record. 

Other men who look good for Young are: Bunnell, shot put; Wright, quarter and 
half-mile runs; Biddulph, higii jump; and Miller, furlong man.

The Wrestling Year 

Wrestling brought to Brigliam Young another of its characteristic 1926 one- 
point defeats when the Cougar matnien met the Utah aggregation in the local gym- 
nasium. One week previous to this meet, the Aggies humbled the local team by a score of 
21-9, the same team later taking the Conference title. The score of the meet with 
Utah was 14-13, and hinged on the decision of the referee in one of the matches. 

Don Corbett, Clark Larson, and Garn Webb were the best bets in the Utah meet, 
two of them, Corbett and Larson, winning their matches with falls, while the other two 
were given the wins on points. 

The outstanding feature of the entire season was the placing of Clark Larson 
first in his weight in the State meet, and the two sensational victories of Arnold 
Roylance, a student from Springville who has unfortunately lost the sight of both eyes. 

Larson was sent to the Western Division meet at Corvalis, Oregon, but he did 
not place. 

Roylance's first victory came in the Utah meet when he threw Elmer Gertsch of 
Utah in an exhibition bout in the remarkable time of two minutes. His second and 
scoring victory came in the Western Division meet at Logan, in which meet he won 
his letter. He was matched against a Utah man, who attempted to take advantage of 
his disability, opening the match with a lunge at Roylance from the rear. Through 
some unexplainable method Roylance detected the attack and dodged it only to clamp 
a terrific headlock and body scissors on the man to throw him in one minute and 
forty-five seconds. 

Young did not place in the Conference meet, but had Roylance and Larson to 
represent it as outstanding performers.

Surprising critics and the public generally, the Young tennis squad has, at the time 
of this writing, madi* fair headway toward a state tennis title. Due to the showing 
made last year, and the loss of two letter men, not a great deal was expected of the team 
this year, making the success all the more pleasing. 

Thus far this season, they have won their two most difficult matches, the home 
meets — most difficult because the visiting team has the privilege of placing the men. 

The Universitv of Utah was the first victim, coming down full of confidence and 
with a brilliant line-up. It must be said that the meet was close, match point several 
times in the Snow-Buttle — Irvine-Crone match possibly deciding it either way. The 
Provo boys' steadiness pulled them through, however, giving them a victory in the fifth 
set. 

After winning both doubles. Young was tied when Dixon lost his singles to Blevins, 
and Gilchrist of Young lost to Hayden of Utah. Buttle brought the match through 
safely by defeating Irvine in a gruelling singles match. 

The Utah Aggies, after losing their first meet to Utah came down rather dis- 
heartened, but showed some fine playing ability. Young repeated the previous week's 
performance in taking both doubles, and added to it by winning Dixon's singles, sowing 
the meet up safely. 

The two remaining matches will be played at Salt Lake and Logan respectively, and 
should be victories for Young, the visitors being privileged as explained. This would 
again place Young in the tennis supremacy which they held for two years preceding 
last year.

Women's Athletics 

With the second year of the invitational track meet open to women, basketball 
competition, and the awarding of four sweaters to outstanding girl performers on a 
point system, added stimuli have been apparent in the field of women's athletics. 

Basketball and volley ball were played during the winter months, both on an inter- 
class and intra-mural basis. The motive, was, however, not to win pennants, but to pro- 
mote organized athletic activity among the girls. 

The girls' track meet created this year perhaps more interest than ever before. 
Perhaps chiefly because men were allowed to watch it. 

A number of good performances were recorded, bettering last year's considerably. 
Chief among these were the performances in the hurdle races and in the relays. The 
archery proved to be one of the most interesting of all the contests, drawing the largest 
crowd of spectators. 

An encouraging factor in this year's improvement is that a number of the better 
performers of this season were the freshman girls. 

The four girls to receive the sweaters on the activity point system were: Josephine 
Dougall, 2,200 points; Bessie Iverson, 1,800 points; Remina Larson, 1,800 points; and 
Helen Mendenhall, 1,800 points. The points are scored by the number of hours of 
participation 'in any of the various sports such as hockey, tennis, swimming, track, 
basketball, and the like. A maximum of three hundred points is given each quarter, and 
a minimum of fifteen hundred is allowed before a girl can win a sweater, making it 
necessary to participate at least five quarters. The awards are given to those who have 
the highest number of points over and above the qualification requirements.

'This is the Place" 



The appellation. "This is the place" and the man who uttered ii arc destined to immortality. The 
name of Brigham Young has been recorded into history as one of the grvatesl colonizers and empire builders 
of all lime. The people which he led across the trackless plains have been vindicated. Through their hard 
work and frugality a sage brush wilderness has been transformed into beautiful fields and thriving industries. 
The pioneer spirit has uncovered untold wealth in the boundless hills. Incomparable resources have been dis- 
covered and all of it is nestled in the midst of the worlds most exquisite beauty. Located within a radius of 
six hundred miles from the point where Brigham Young uttered that memorable phrase. "This is the place." 
at« sixty-two national parks and monuments. Many other beauty spots which the government has not yet 
christened are to be found within this area. And at the very threshold of each of these places happy Mor- 
mon homes arc to be found, whose habitants arc sources of inspiration to the "stranger who comes within 
their gates." Indeed. "This is the place" to come into closer intimacy with God; to learn what man can do 
through faith in Him. But why should 1 in my puny way attempt to write about this, when before me 
stands in memory a man whose fine spirituality has caught the beauty and spirit of it all and committed it 
to the language of men in the most eloquent of words. I speak of John Stephen McGroarty. a devout enthu- 
siast of California, author and producer of the Mission Play and writer for the Los Angeles Times, who has 
told about all of this under the caption; "The Mormon Empire." It was my great privilege to be associated 
with Mr. McGroarty. his wife and good friends in the capacity of guide and chauffeur during thc'r visit 
through the parks of Southern Utah during the summer of 1426, and from him came much of the inspiration 
to attempt this work. Certainly an appreciation for our wonderful homeland not before enjoyed came to me 
through my association with him. Let me pass on to you who may read these pages some of his spiritual 
personality which radiates through his writings. You will be made the better through the reading. — Editor. 

THE MORMON EMPIRE 

By John Stephen McGroarty in the Los Angeles Times. Sunday Magazine 

Lately, when I had a loan from God and was on my way to the old blue hills of home in Penn's Woods 
where I was born. 1 spent a few handfuls of my golden store of time in Utah. 

It is a place where I had often longed to be — the great Mormon Empire, the vast beauty of which with 
its thrilling story, had lured and fascinated me this long time since. 

I have already related in the synagogue, as best 1 could — yet feeling so very futile about it — the wonders 
of Zion with its stupendous temples and gleaming domes and I have told the strange tale of the Red City that 
Bryce. the Scot, found on a wandering day in a great gash of the Wasatch hills. But, all that is only a little 
of the far-flung wonderland of Utah. And now. at last. I have crossed its domain from end to end. and am 
left awed in the over- whelming realization of what it means to be an American. 

For. this is what you must realize when you cross the continent — that it is a tremendous thing to be an 
American. When one's mind grasps the fact that Utah alone and by itself, is a greater country in every 
way than all Europe put together, and yet that it is only a small part of our America, after all. then the very 
stars on the flag take on a brighter glory and its crimson stripes a deeper name. 

Utah that stands at the back door of California, less than twenty-four hours away by train or auto. Its 
incalculable wealth within easy reach of our hands, and its indescribable beauty under our very eyes. And. 
beyond it. stretching limitlessly to the Atlantic, the sweep of the continent. All of it American, and all of 
it ours. 

Wherefort. is it not meet and just that we stand bowed before the throne of the Lord God of the ages in 
reverent mind with grateful hearts? 

As I traversed Utah, my first thought was of the pioneers. I could not get my mind away from them 
ind all that they had endured to reach a promised land. It is difficult to find its parallel in human history — 
an exodus before which that of Israel, itself, would seem to pale into in.Mgnificance.

There was a writing man. the latchets of whose shoes I could never hope to be worthy to have loosed, 
who has put this thing into wondrously eloquent words. I read them on a creaking caravan — words writ- 
ten long ago by the late Judge Goodwin, sometime editor of the Salt Lake Tribune — and that ran thus: 

"The exodus to Utah was not like any other recorded in history. The exodus to Italy was to a land of 
sunshine, native fruits and flowers, the march of Xenophon's immortal band was a march of fighting men 
back to their homes; the exodus of the Pilgrims was to a new world of unmeasured possibilities; but the 
exodus to Utah was a march out of despair to a destination on the unresponsive breast of the desert. The 
Utah pioneers had been tossed out of civilization into the wilderness, and on the outer gate of that civiliza- 
tion a flaming sword of hate had been placed which turned every way against them. 

"All ties of the past had been sundered. They were so poor that their utmost hope was to secure the 
merest necessities of life. If ever a dream of anything like comfort or luxuries came to them, they made a 
grave in their hearts for that dream and buried it that it might not longer vex them." 

This is what Goodwin .said of the Mormon pioneers, and no one will ever say it with more exquisitely 
poignant touch. 

And now, three-quarters of a century after. 1 saw their green farms on the banks of shining rivers, their 
villages among the trees that their strong hands planted; and I walked the thronged streets of Salt Lake City, 
the stately capital of the empire that rose from their faith out of desert sands. 

They that made graves in their hearts to bury dreams of comfort and luxury "that it might not longer 
vex them." lived on to meet the resurrection of those dreams among smiling fields and flower-flamed gardens 
in the desolation of a wilderness that they made to blossom as the rose. 

I am not any too well informed as to just what exactly the religious creed of the Mormon Church is — 
that church which once wholly dominated Utah, to a great extent dominates it still. It is something with 
which I am not concerned. It is a matter for their own consciences, solely. But I do know that the Mor- 
mon pioneers in Utah were possessed of a tremendous faith. 

There is a sculptured record of that faith erected from enduring stone and bronze in the beautiful gardens 
of the Tabernacle in Salt Lake City — the exquisite monument of the sea gulls. 

There is no more wonderful story of human faith than this which is told by the monument of the sea 
jgul'.s. It was in the year 1848 that the pioneers planted their first crop of grain in the valley of the Great 
Salt Lake, upon reaching the "Promised Land" after the untold hardships of the exodus from civilization. 
The very lives of the settlers depended on the harvest. And the seed that was sown in hope grew and flour- 
ished until it was at last ready for the scythe. 

Then, one day, the skies were darkened with endless swarms of marauding crickets that swooped down 
on the fields, destroying every growing green thing that they touched. The settlers fought them with the 
strength of despair, but all in vain. Nothing that human power could do was able to beat back the black 
hordes of the destroyers. And so. not knowing where else to turn, the people fell upon their knees amid the 
vanishing harvest, and sent up from their weary hearts supplications to God. 

Immediately, then, came swift answer to their prayers. Looking up. they beheld legions of white- 
winged gulls, swifter than the winds that bore them, flying from the Great Salt Lake, the sky vibrant with 
their rescuing cries. They were the fowled Bluchers come to Waterloo. Down upon the crickets the white 
gulls fell, devouring them even as they had devoured the almost ripened grain. And so the crop on which 
life depended was saved. 

The base of the monument is made eloquent with scenes in bronze that go to make up the story. But 
the feature of it all that impressed me most was the sculptured legend, the words of which tell that the sea 
gull monument was "erected in grateful remembrance of the mercy of God to the Mormon pioneers." 

After this, the Mormon Church was assuredly "on its way," And it had left its martyrs not only with 
the grave of its prophet, but in the lonely silences of the hard road it traveled to its Canaan. 

Whatever your religious convictions may be. or if it be that you have none, you must still, in all honesty, 
feel a profound admiration for the Mormon people after you ha\'e come to know their story. 

Stand now in the green valley of Salt Lake, clustered with trees, and then realize that when Brigham

Youngs pioncirs reached ihc spol there was but one lone scraggy tree in ihat vast desolation to greet their eyes. 
Of what heroic stuff they must have been made not to have been disheartened as they gazed upon that inhos- 
pitable scene! How perfect must have been their faith as ihcy accepted without a murmur the dictum of their 
leader when he said "This is the place. " 

The promised land of Israel was a land of corn and wine: it flowed with milk and was sweet with 
honey, ll was a land in which a man's belly would rejoice. But. to greet the weary hearts, the tired eyes 
and the aching bodies of the Mormons was this vast desolation. And yet, they accepted it, even gladly. They 
lighted their camp fires upon the arid wastes and lifted up their voices in wild, grateful hymns of praise to 
God amid the unwelcoming and inhospitable hills. » • ♦ 

Utah is destined to see great days — great days of boundless riches and civic glory. Yet it will not .ind 
cannot forget the deathless glory of its pioneers — they who drove the stakes of the commonwealh and reared 
the rafters of the state. And. in those days that are to be there will doubtless be some carping critic to find 
fault and belittle them, and sneer and to laugh, ribalding, above the graves of Brigham Young and his nine- 
teen wives. But, with all that — which was his own business and something that has nothing to do with 
his almost unparalleled record as an empire buildei — history will be sure to write him down clearly and with- 
out petty prejudice. 

As for me. who am as far away from the Mormons in their religious beliefs and practices as a man can 
be. they have my profound respect. I would not like to think that I could not grant them the justice that 
history cannot withhold from them. 

It staggers the imagination to contemplate what this empire of Utah really is — the empire that the Mor- 
mon people opened up for the world by their faith and sacrifice and sublime courage. Its natural and still un- 
developed wealth is so immeasurable and boundless that one does not wonder that Abraham Lincoln in a mo- 
ment of prophetic vision declared that Utah is the treasure house of the nation." 

There is today unmined coal in Utah sufficient to supply the needs of the entire world for the next 
hundred years to come, regardless of the most profligate and improvident uses. It has mountains of iron and 
copper, almost inexhaustible stores of silver, great deposits of gold. It has limestone, petroleum, asphalt and 
a hundred and one other minerals. It is. indeed, a storehouse of the nation. 

And it is at the back door of California. It will send us coking coal for the steel mills that we arc to 
build and that will speed their products upon the laden ships to the trade of the Orient and South America. 
It will supply us with much raw material that we have not ourselves. Needful things that Californi.i can 
telephone for and have delivered to it over night. 

Nor does this potential commercial alliance of California with Utah stop with the raw materials of the 
mines. California, it appears clearly, is destined to become the most densely inhabited section of the globe. 
Its thousand miles of length wi'l be crowded with homes and marts of trade. There will no longer remain 
lands for the pursuits of agriculture and stock raising, dairying and all that. There will be one vast city from 
San Diego's harbor of the Sun to Sonoma in the Valley of the Seven Moons, and far beyond that. But there 
will still be Utah at the back door. 

Just now, it is a marvelous experience to ride through the Mormon empire just to see the sheep, alone. 
You will meet them crossing the high roads in endless droves, their shepherds and the sheep dogs with them. 
It is always a sight that the heart lingers upon lovingly. One thinks of the sunlit plains and starlit hills of 
Judea. And the darling dogs that are always so seriously at their task of guardianship. You will love the sheep 
and the dogs in Utah; and the Mormon shepherds will wave a friendly hail to you as you pass. And it may 
be that, as you sec now and then a black sheep, an old rhyme of childhood will come back to you to find 
you saying: 

"Ba. ba, black sheep. 

Have you any wool.' 

Yes sir, yes sir, three bags full. 

One for the master, one for the dame 

And one for the little boy that lives in the lane," 

Likely enough, I have not quoted exactly by the book, and so Mother Goose may be, even now. lifting 
an accusing finger at me. But. oh. sometimes childhood seems so very far away.

As a wind-up of your journey you will perhaps spend some time in Salt Lake City. Nor will it be 
time lost, though you may say with others that "all cities are alike." For. it is, after all. true that there arc 
a half dozen or so beautiful cities in the world. Salt Lake is one of them. And you will be glad that good 
fortune led your steps within its sunny gates. 



It is wonderful to think what has been accomplished here during the few short years that have passed 
since first our parents treked their weary way to this land. Now we have manufacturing plants of various 
kinds to make for us almost anything we may wish or need. When we speak of "home products" we do not 
confine them to a few things. Most everything is made right here, and we are happy in the knowledge that 
this book has been designed, printed, engraved and almost entirely manufactured right here. And now. let 
me express some little appreciation for what has been done by others in assisting with this work. 

No success was ever achieved by individual effort alone. Always there has been present aiding forces of 
some sort. So. in the creating of this book. Represented herein are the combined efforts and interests of 
many people. Limited space will not permit a complete enumeration of all that each has done, nor will it be 
possible to even name all who have assisted in one way and another. Yet the book would not have been pos- 
sible were it not for the faithful and conscientious work of those who "served behind the lines" — those who 
did the mechanical work and those who at various times gave the encouragement necessary to make a continu- 
ance of the work seem worth-while. To these we are very grateful though we cannot mention them 
individually. 

The problem of securing pictures for the development of our motif was very real and for a time it ap- 
peared as though it would be necessary for us to abandon our idea because of the cost of getting the kind and 
number of pictures necessary to successfully develop our idea being prohibitive. Through the great courtesy 
of D. S. Spencer. Passenger Agent: and Mr. A. V. Peterson, of the publicity department of the Union Pacific 
Railroad System, the problem was doomed to short consequence. These gentlemen placed at our disposal 
thousands of beautiful views from which we selected such wonderful pieces as are located on pages 30. 31, 34. 
35, 36, 37, 38, 39. 44. and 45. The majority of the small circle views that run through the book in our 
border scheme were also received from them. At the time Mr, Spencer and Mr. Peterson were so considerately 
caring for our wants from the Salt Lake office of the Union Pacific. Mr. Jack Bristol, of the Omaha offices. 
was preparing for shipment to us the collection of wonderful color plates which appear on pages 5. 49. 50. 
51. 52, 53, 54, 55, 56, 57, 58, and 59, Except where otherwise stated, the descriptive matter which appears 
under the color plates is taken from the Union Pacific "Red Book"-, so we have very much to be grateful for 
to the Union Pacific System. Our appreciation for all these courtesies is very sincere. 

The other color plates, used as Divisional pages, came to us through the courtesy of the Salt Lake 
Chamber of Commerce. 

For the Colorado views that appear on pages 46. 47. and 48. together with a number of the small 
circle scenes, we are indebted to the courtesy of Mr. Cushing of the Denver 'ii Rio Grande Western Railway 
Company. 

Professor Walter Coltam. of the B. Y. U. Faculty, was very kind in allowing us the use of the Tim- 
panogos views appearing on pages 25. 26. and 27. and also the scenes on pages 28. and 29. Professor Cottam 
also furnished a number of the small circle pictures and several of the activity pictures that appear in various 
places through the book. 

For the use of other scenic pictures used we offer thanks to Mr. Maurice Cope of the Brycc Canyon 
service. Mr. Harold Russell of the Zion National Park service and Mr. C. R. Reeves of California. 

By courtesy of Mr. Galloway Ewing of New York, we were able to secure the splendid pictures herein 
reproduced of the Banyan Tree, located on the Title Page and on pages 1 13 and 114. At considerable trouble 
and expense he was successful in taking these photographs in Calcutta. India 

Such men as B. F. Grant. General Manager of the Deseret News. Earl J. Glade. Manager of Radio Station 
K S L. deserve much credit for the encouragement and inspiration they have so often given as the work has 
progressed. 

Enough cannot be said in appreciation for the unstinted cooperation which has been given by Mr. 



221 




C. W. Birkinshjw. Mr. F. W. Schwcndiman jnd the Dostrct News stjff jssociaicd with ihcm The care ihcy 
have exercised in an effort to produce a highly commendable job has been very exceptional, indeed 

To Mr. Elmer Finch and his very capable staff of engravers we owe much in the way of thanks More 
conscientious effort and careful consideration could not be ^\\en than the S.ili lake I-ngraving Company has 
given to this work. 

Although handicapped by accidents and troubles to a point of near calamity. Mr. P. S. Eckcr. has dem 
onslratcd an unfailing integrity in the manner in which he fulfilled all his promises connected with the pho- 
tograph work. Notwithstanding the knowledge he had of obvious loss he kept the quality of his work up 
to a point of superiority throughout, and we arc very grateful to him. indeed. 

The cooperation received from various agencies within the school, has been very helpful to us Espe- 
cially, should Gail Plummer. as Editor of The "Y" News be mentioned. 

The question has been asked: "Which member of your staff has been of greatest assistance during the 
year?" "All of them." was the answer. A more devoted group of people cannot be found than the mem- 
bers of this year's Banyan Staff. From the very beginning they have had their hearts in the work and have 
performed their tasks most efficiently. They have offered help, consideration, and the kindliest of support 
at all times, without which this work could not have been completed. 

Although not a member of the staff, due to membership in other activities, Mr. George K. Lewis, has 
been of invaluable assistance in advising and in originating and developing the ideas embodied in the sub- 
division pages. "Georkee '. as he is fondly known, has done more for the school during his several years 
here than has most any other several individuals combined. Always at the sacrifice of his own interests to 
further those of the group at large or the school, he has served in many capacities The student body as a 
whole gives thanks and appreciation to "Georkee" for the unselfish service he has always rendered. 

To the mothers, wives, and sweethearts of staff members, who. of necessity, have been somewhat neg 
lected because of the amount of time taken by the "book", we owe thanks. They have been most devoted 
and loyal. 

If mention of any others who should be included in these lines, is not made, chalk it up to the lack of 
proper concentration caused by the rattle of machinery and the noise of presses, for this has been written 
while pressmen have waited. Thanks to all. — Editor. 

The following is the summary of an oration delivered by Brigham H. Roberts on the occasion of the 
unveiling of the monument erected in honor of the Pioneers on the spot where Brigham Young uttered the 
words. "This is the place." We borrow it as a fitting conclusion to this division with thanks to Mr. 
Roberts. — Editor. 

"THIS IS THE PLACE" 

"Prophecy, this! Inspiration, this! Genius! Who can doubt it when he may behold the confirmation 
of it in a splendid city and a great commonwealth? Golden words thcsc^ This is the place. Cherish 
them, fellow citizens — young men and maidens of Utah — make them live now and for the future: and not 
alone to express material advantages, but for moral worth and spiritual power as well. This is the place.' 
not only for material advantages, but for the finer things in life as well: for music, art, and science, for 
learning and culture: for the development of honor and integrity, in the individual, and in the community 
life These are the things of the spirit, they pertain to the people, and the people are of more importance 
than things. 

" Money hath but money's value. 

Virtue is not bought or sold. 
And a nation's wealth is reckoned 

From her people, not her gold.' 

"To you all, 1 commend this view of the words: 

•' THIS IS THE PLACE.' "

Devotional Exercises 

One of the essential bases on which the Brigham Young University is founded is, 
that true rcMgion and true education cannot be separated. It is one of the most highly 
cherished aims of the institution that these two great determiners of human conduct 
shall receive a sympathi-tic and correlated treatment. 

The Devotional exercises play a very important part in the plan by which this aim 
is fulfilled. At eleven-thirty o'clock in the morning three times each week the students 
assemble in College Hall as a student body to participate in these exercises. There 
they are addressed by men of wide experience and outstanding accomplishments in the 
various fields of art, literature, religion, science, law, government, business, music, 
ethics; and the list might be continued almost indefinitely. 

The privilege of attending these exercises is one of the most valuable privileges 
which comes to a Brigham Young University student. Many of the most fondly treas- 
ured memories of col';ge life are results of these hours. They are sources of inspiration 
and stimulation. The far-famed "Y" spirit received its birth there; its power has 
grown there; and from thence its influence has been extended. The student who does 
not avail himself of the opportunity of attending these meetings and of participating 
m the inspiration they give is depriving himself of the greatest single force to true 
education and culture offered at this university. The spirit of the meetings is unique. 
The inspiration of them is invaluable. The breadth and scope of the information 
given there is wide and varied. 

It is the purpose of this section to preserve some of tiie many valuable and beautiful 
thoughts expressed in addresses given before the student body during these devotional 
exercises, and make them readily and conveniently available for the use of the students. 
Space permits the printing of only a very few of the many wonderful things said. 
A complete record of them would be a most valuable possession. The following excerpts 
are samples selected from speeches given during the pasd year. 

"Spurs" 

"Happily, the world is full of spurs. The outer world, the inner world, the uni- 
verse advances under the urge of spurs quite as much as it docs under the hire 
of interest. The spur of appetite keeps the individual from languishing and the 
race from becoming extinct. Social spurs accelerate the action of the one to keep 
pace with the movements of the many. Custom rules savagery and civilization alike 
with spurs. Education carries a multiplicity of spurs: credits, prizes, badges, diplomas, 
degrees, etc. Go into any large museum and you will see spurs of great variety in 
shape and in quality of material. They will range from pure gold to crude iron. Look 
into the mind and you will find spurs without end — intellectual spurs, moral spurs, 
spiritual spurs." 

— I'roiii Sermonette y^iicii hy PraiJcnt Geo. H. Brimhall 

Sc(itemhcr 20, 1926 

"A Prophecy" 

"Do not think that this institution has lost its growth. It was founded in faith 
and it shall never cease growing. University hill will yet be covered with buildings of 
the institution and I expect to live to see the day." 

— From ipeech ^iicn by Senator Reed Smoot 
Noiemher 2, 1926 

"Value of Books" 

"There is nothing like making companions early in life with the master minds in 







^^^^f 



literature. Surrounding every grain of wheat there is a husk which must be penetrated 
before reaching the kernel. So in reading, it is necessary to go through the husk of 
literature before reaching the kernel. Back of every fiction there is a richer story built 
around the writer's life. Books arc tools of inspiration, strength and encouragement 
if we will but let them be so." 

— Vrom sl>cccb i^ircii by Reverend John E. Carver 
November ), 1926 

"A Challenge" 

"I challenge you to be carriers of peace. 

"Flanders Field is not the thing of beauty one is often times led to believe. There 
are old wooden crosses and acres of neglected graves. How soon we forget those who 
fought for us. 

"They fought for a last World War. It is up to us to make it the last World War. 
If we think in terms of war there will be war. If we think in terms of peace there 
will be peace. 

"President Harding said, 'This must not be again. War must be banished from 
the world.' 

"Lincoln said, '^X'ith firmness in the right — .' Let us finish the text. 

"President Coolidge says, 'It is for us who have seen and survived the disasters 
of the late war to prevent another.' 

"Let us adopt this text: Go forward and serve until the Prince of Peace shall reign 
in the hearts of men." 

— From speech by Dr. Lincoln Wirt 
November 19, 1926 

"A Tribute" 

"Aside from vested authority, apart from position. President Hebcr J. Grant 
stands among men: 

Straight as the flight of time, 

True as tempered steel 
Quick as the lightning flash 
A dynamo of zeal." 

— Given by President George H. Brimhall, 

Occasion of President Heber J. Grant's birthday. 
November 22, 1926 

"The important thing in college life is to make a survey. When you have done 
this your goal at least will be on the horizon." 

— From speech given by E. S. Hinckley 
December 1, 1926 

"A New Year's Wish" 

"If I could wish you what I would like to wish you for this year we are just 
launching upon I should wish you many things, among them new friends but no loss 
of old ones; success, but only so much of it as you can use to make your spirit stronger 
and the world happier; health, but that by it your sympathy be not lessened nor your 
patience shortened; happiness, yet tempered by some shadows to mellow its radiance; a 
task congenial, but arduous enough to bring the weariness that welcomes rest; and faith 
such that eternal life becomes a loadstone. The God becomes a father and Jesus Christ 
an elder brother beckoning you on up." 

"We should not look down on a man for doing a certain kind of work. No matter 
what a man does, if he does it honorably, if he does it well, I salute him." 

— From a speech giien by Dr. Adam S. Beniiion

"Opposition" 

"I have chosen as my text words of a character with whom you all should be ac- 
quainted through His teachings: 'It must needs be that opposition comes.' 

"Why weeds? Some say God cursed Adam. The text does not say it — 'For thy 
sake shall the earth be cursed. Thorns and thistles shall it bring forth.' Weeds are 
that man may be challenged to industry. 

"Why disease? That man may be challenged to investigation in the line of conquest 
over disease, not merely that riian might suffer. 

"Why disaster? That man may learn; that man may be challenged to provide 
against and in a measure avert it, control the over-flow of rivers, build against the 
shaking of earthquakes, and ward off the striking of lightning. 

"\C'hv the seeming inconsistencies in nature, such as the roaring Colorado through 
the desert? Why too much in one place and t(X) little in another. To challenge men 
in conquest over nature." 

"I go to the inner world, ^^''hy passion? To ciullenge man's power of self- 
control. 

"Why the tendency to dodge duty? To challenge the power of faithfulness in 
man. 

"Why the poor? To challenge our sympathy, our generosity. 

"Why the weak? To challenge our helpfulness. 

"Then in conclusion, why opposition? That man may be challenged to action. 
Then finally, why evil? That good may be challenged to growth." 

— Siriiii)int/c l>\ I'rfsiJciif Gi'orfie H. Brimhall 
December 1}, 1926 

"That Which Counts In Education" 

"When you get this great splendid education, the vital question is: Can you 
use it? This is the first great requirement. And it is the great problem of young 
American people. You don't have to know so much, but if you know how to use 
what you do know, that is the thing. The good thing in our education is the part 
we know how to use. If you can just separate the things you can use from the things 
you can't use, that is the important thing in education." 

"A Real Education" 

"A real education is that something in this old world which brings a man to the 
place where he can face the future without fear." 

— From speech given by Cory Hanks 
January']!, 1327 

"Alertness" 



"We should keep our eyes open always. It is necessary that we do our part or 
humanity stops. There is a challenge to every generation and you are preparing for 
th.it challenge." 

"Happiness" 



it 



"Happiness comes when you are developing morally, naturally, sanely; and when 
you are improving the talents with which the Lord has endowed you." 



.^. 



226 




Security" 

"As I lengthen the ropes I must strengthen the stakes. The ropes of this genera- 
tion are being lengthened more than the ropes of any other generation. I want to 
emphasize this one point, that you are now enrolled in an institution that is fastening 
the stakes on which you can anchor hopes, faith and all things of life. When the 
storms and winds of this modern life attempt to gain your soul you can withstand the 
temptations." 

— From speech giieii by Win. O. Rohiiisoii 
J ii unary 26, 1927 



"Making of a Life" 

"Students in school are just on the threshold of life and they should live to make 
their lives more abundant, as Christ meant when He said, 'I am come that they might 
have life and have it more abundantly.' This is the greatest promise made by the 
Savior and is an echo of all His teachings. Life is the most sacred and precious thing. 

"Students should not prepare for a vocation alone but for life, which, of course, 
means making a living as a means for making a life. 

Some of the ends for which people make life are the following: 

"I. That they might exist — this always results in drudgery. 

"2. That they might have pleasure — which results in unhappiness. 

"3. That they might have fame — which results in vanity. 

"4. That they might have wealth — which results in sordidness and disappointment. 

"5. That they might in the end become like God — which results in character and 
service. 

"The elements from which we make life are our reactions toward our desires and 
appetites. Here power to govern is determined. They make or unmake us. They 
urge but should be controlled. Passion drives but must be directed. 

"Evil always promises to give life but in the end destroys it. 'The thief cometh 
in the night not to give unto life but to destroy it.' 

"True life is the realization of the higher virtues. In the morning of youth with 
life before you keep yourself unspotted from the sins of life." 

— From speech given by Apostle DaiiJ O. McKay 

January 25, 1927 

"Specialization and Balance" 

"Education has become so far specialized that what we have gained in one subject, 
we have lost in other subjects. Let me impress you with this one thought. Education 
is a preparation for life. If it is to be really valuable it must have two sides. First, 
there is the academic side, and secondly, the side which teaches us what we are and 
gives us a glimpse of the intuitive side of our natures." 

"Music" 

"Music becomes one of the broad adventures of a broad life education. It is not 
like the arts, and no attempt is here made to discredit the other arts. Music brings 
about in the mind as well as in the emotions, an appreciation of life we cannot do 
without."

'The Ogre oi Fear" 



"Wc see the attitude of fear in the dealings of one nation with another. It enters 
into the plans of every people. We see the action of fear in the minds of men. It 
is for us to join with them in removing fear from the world. We look to you, my 
young friends, because we feel that you have the power; that in light you have seen 
light; that in this hour of your lives you will never fear. 

"Faith is never opposing to knowledge, but fear is. 

"God has not given us the spirit of fear, but the power of love and of a sound 
mind." 

— From speech given hy Professor Levi Edgar Young 

January 27, 1927 

"Wp are moving from one great period to another. 

"I hope we will not leave those things which are worthwhile. Prove all things 
but hold fast to that which is good. 

"Could I say one word this morning that 1 would have you remember, it is 
that with all your getting, get an understanding of the fundamental life; its purpose, 
and know that all that glitters is not gold. 

"Start each morning with the thought that there is a God. All your doubts will 
disappear when some crisis comes into your life. Do not forget that there is some 
of the doctrine of your home and your church that you can never forget." 

— /'row speech given by Congressman Don B. Colloii 

March 27, 1927 

"The valley of human happiness is watered by three streams. They are: The 
spring of health, the river of helpfulness and the fountain of hope. 

"Three great gifts of Father Time are: Chance, choice and change. 
"The throne of lasting leadership is ascended by three steps: ability, affection 
and action. 

"The sunset skyline of an ideal life is marked by three peaks: Mount well-bred. 
Mount well-wed, and Mount well-dead." 

— From speech given by President George H. Brinihall 

February 21!, 1927 

"Our Father has always warned his children of ends which were to come to them. 
Now is the day of warning. We must rid our skirts of the blood of this generation 
by giving them the opportunity of hearing the Gospel." 

— Given by Apostle Mclvin ). Ballard 

"To every man, and in the term I include women also, he, himself is the center 
of his universe. To him time is yesterday or tomorrow, the past or the future, 
space is out there in all directions. He is the first cause. 

"You young men and young women may sway your universe. You may gain 
immortality. 

"Today is ours. Our opportunity for impressing ourselves upon the universe of 
which we are the center is here and now. The history of the leader of men teaches that 
our immortality depends upon the perfection of our love." 

— Given I'y Professor H. R. Merrill 

"When President Young gave Karl G. Maeser the manifestation and desire with 
respect to the institution, among other things he said, 'Brother Maeser, I want you to 
go to Provo and establish a church school. I want you to have the spirit of the Lord 
IP all your efforts. Don't even undertake to teach anything, not even the multiplica- 
tion tables, without the Holy Spirit.' "

Alpink Outdoor Theatre 

Summer School 

The Summer Sessions at the Brigham Young University are characterized by a spirit 
of democracy and friendliness, into which snobbery makes no attempt to enter. The 
spirit of whole-hearted good-fellowship that pervades these sessions is a source of added 
pleasure and satisfaction to everyone who attends. It is the "Y" spirit at its best. Espe- 
cially, there is an intimacy between and among faculty and students which adds to the 
delight and the profit of the work. 

Enough pleasure and recreation is interspersed with the work to add a very desirable 
zest. Provo's wonderful location makes it an ideal place for out-door recreation. Moon 
light hikes up Mount Timpanogos and to Maple Flat, where the hikers wait to witness 
the sunrise from the tops of wonderful mountains are indeed rare privileges. The annual 
summer school hike up Mount Timpanogos is becoming increasingly popular each year. 
The bonfire program in the natural amphitheater at Aspen Grove the night preceding 
the annual hike is rapidly becoming famous. The winding trail, the myriads of colorful 
wild flowers, the scores of splashing waterfalls, the odor of the pines, the glory of Em- 
erald Lake, the awe inspiring cliffs and the thrilling slide down the glacier help to im- 
press the experience of the hike indelibly upon the memory of the participant. 

Perhaps the most distinctive feature of the summer session is the Alpine Summer 
School, located well up in the Alpine region in a beautiful Aspen grove at an elevation of 
6,800 feet, below a perpetual glacier and a wonderful system of falls and cataracts. The 
first session, in 1922, was tried as an experiment, but its success was so complete that 
since then the session has become an annual undertaking. The wonderful opportunities 
for scientific research in the fields of biology, geology and nature study make the Alpine 
Simimer School a permanent institution. The Alpine School is well organized. Dormi- 
tories are provided for the women who are under the supervision of the Dean of Women. 
Meals are served in a dining hall and a central reading room and social center is provided. 
The social life of the camp is wholesome and educational. 

The number of students applying for work leading to higher degrees has increased 
to such an extent that the Summer School is rapidly becoming a center for advanced 
professional training.

The Invitation Track and Field Meet 
and Relay Carnival 

The Invitation Track Meet and Relay Carnival was initiated by the Department 
of Physical Education in the Spring of 1911 as a part of the annual inter-class track 
and field meet of the school. At that time invitations were issued to a few Utah County 
high schools. It was the aim of the department to build up the meet upon a solid 
foundation, and gradually to extend the invitation list until it should reach ail educa- 
tional institutions in the intt'rmountain country. Thanks to a fine spirit of cooperation 
and support shown by those in charge of the policies and of the athletics in other schools, 
the big festival has grown so extensively that its program now consists of more than one 
hundred events and the number of contestants is considerably more than one thousand. 

The purpose of the festival is two-fold, first, to bring together for mutual stimula- 
tion and benefit hundreds of young athletes from all the intermountaln schools and col- 
leges; second, to give athletic coaches an opportunity to try out large numbers of con- 
testants under actual conditions of close competition. No team championships are 
awarded. The events are scheduled as individu.ii championships and medals arc awarded 
to the winners. Thus institutional rivalry is reduced to the minimum while universal 
participation is encouraged. 



Q^^D 



Arts Course 



The Arts Course was formerly known as the Lyceum Course. Through it, the 
University brings eminent artists to the students for their entertainment and educa- 
tion. The work is under the supervision of Professors John C. Swenson and Herald 
R. Clark. These men deserve the gratitude and appreciation of the student body for 
their efforts in bringing these wonderful artists to the school.

Typing and Shorthand Contest 

The typing and shorthand contest is held under the auspices of the Department of 
Office Practice of the College of Commerce, and is under the direct supervision of Pro- 
fessor A. Rex Johnson. 

Its growth has been rapid. When it was initiated three years ago only nine schools 
participated. This year twenty-eight schools and one hundred and forty-one contest- 
ants took part. Only accredited high schools are permitted to enter contestants. 

School and individual awards are made in the various events. By far the most 
important prize is that offered by the Underwood Typewriter Company, a free trip to 
New York City given the winner of the first year typewriting contest. This prize was 
won this year by Miss Beth Christensen of Richfield. Pennants are given by the Brigham 
Young University, and loving cups by the Utah Power & Light Company and the Moun- 
tain States Bell Telephone Company to the winning teams. Two scholarships are given by 
the Brigham Young University to the winners in the second year typewriting, and in 
the shorthand events. In addition the winners receive gold, silver and bronze medals for 
first, second and third places respectively. 

The purpose of the contest is to create interest and encourage efficiency in com- 
mercial subjects among high school students.

Dramatic Contest 



Again the Brigham Young University stepped ahead of the other major colleges 
of the state, this time to inaugurate the High School one act play Competition. It is 
to be an annual affair and is sponsored by the Dramatic Art Department of the Uni- 
versity, under the supervision of Professor T. Earl Pardoe. 

The purpose of the contest is to encourage the production of one act plays in 
the high schools, to arouse interest in dramatic productions, to raise the level of high 
school dramatic productions, and to act as a socializing force to the contestants. 

Notwithstanding this was the first year of the contest, very remarkable interest 
was taken in it by the High Schools of the state, twelve of them entering. They 
are as follows: Provo, Bingham, Tintic, Monroe, Salina, Richfield, Delta, Ephraim, 
Spanish Fork, Ogden, Uintah Academy and Wasatch Academy. 

The contest covered three days, March 23, 24 and 2 5 and was staged at the 
B. Y. U. The winning schools were as follows: 

Firsf Place — Richfield High School, with the play, "The Valiant," coached by 

Nial Nelson. 
Second Place — Ephraim High School, with the play, "The Girl," coached by Glen 

Guyman. 
Thin! Place — Provo High School, with the play, "Two Crooks and a Lady," 

coached by Mary WooUey. 
Fourth Place — Bingham High School, with the play, "The Beau of Bath," coached 
by Helen Candland.

The Sixth Annual Leadership Week was held January 24-28, 1927. The results

1,546, representing 70 stakes of the Church, coming from Utah, Idaho, Oregon. Cali- 
fornia, Nevada, Arizona, Vi'yoming, Canada and Mexico. 

Short courses were given in Drama, Modern Literature, Music, Genealogy, Methods 
of Teaching, Social Work, Psychology, Religious Education, Western History, Farmers 
Conference, Home Problems, Juvenile Problems, Pageantry, Health, Story Telling for 
Children, Recreation and Scouting. Attendance throughout the week was well 
sustained. 

General Assembly was held daily at 1:30 and was broadcast by remote control over 
K S L of Salt Lake City. The general assembly speakers included President Hcber J. 
Grant, Elders David O. McKay and Stephen L. Richards, of the Council of the Twelve, 
Superintendent Adam S. Bennion, Professor Levi Edgar Young, Hon. Milton H. Welling. 
One of the features of these exercises was two addresses by Edgar Fuller and Ethel Lowry 
on "The Faith of Modern Youth." 

In addition to the Leadership Week held at Provo, the faculty has assisted with 
"The Southern Idaho District Leadership Week" held at Burley, Idaho, and with 
Leadership institutes in Hinckley, Ferron, Ephraim, Rexburg, and other places.

Dear Editor: 

Please bear in taind that in making this 

decision, I am not selecting the most beautiful girls 

that I am merely choosing among a group of pictures 

for artistic effect, which is all that can be done with 
mere pictures. 

Girls are girls; pictures are pictures, 
and the greatest of all beauty is not photographic. 

Trusting that my effort in this may be ac- 
ceptable, I remain 



Yours for service,

WILSON 

Counterflo^v 
Water Heater 

(AUTOMATIC TYPE) 

With the growing use of gas and electric ranges 
anil tlie rapid discard of the coal range, tlie mod- 
ern lionsewife is demanding a convenient, efficient, 
inexpensive means of furnishing a ready, plentiful 
supply of Iiot water. Neitlier does she wish to be 
concerned about this apparatus, for sbe wants it 
upon demand, and without any fussiTig or coaxing. 

.Many years ago Charles F. Kettering asked him- 
self wliy it was necessary to get out in the muil 
to crank his car every time he started it. That 
<luestion Ijrought about the l>eIco starter, gave us 
much more i)leasuralile motoring, made Kettering 
wealthy and finally landed him as president of tlie 
< leneral Motors Researcli Corporation. 

The Wilson Heater is the answer to the desire 
for a fully automatic source of hot water that will 
not go into discard after short service due to 
scale, lime or corrosion. Employing the internal- 
combustion principle and having a perfect counter- 
flow between the profJucts of combustion and the 
fluid to be heated, the efficiency must consequently 
be high. Couple with this the fact that heating 
i-^ instantaneous, so to sj^eak, due to an exception- 
ally large heating surface and more efficient ac- 
celeration of heat transfer, then add its utter sim- 
plicity of construction, operation and cleaning, 
and its recognizance as the last word in water 
heaters is bound to be rapid and certain. 

It is estimated the United States uses 2,500,000 
water heaters per annum. The very low cost of 
manufacture of the counter flow heater, competing 
witli lieaters expensive to construct, means that 
capturing only a small pL-rcentage of the total 
trade, insures a continual supply of healers and 
parts with handsome profits to the manufacturers 
as well as their dealers. 

The Ceneral Steam Corporation not only will 
manufacture these heaters, but is exclusive licensee 
for tile llnited States under the Wilson inventions 
fur the manufacture of tractors, trucks, automo- 
biles and airplanes. 

The first unit of their factory is located on a 
half block of trackage near the convergence of 
three railway lines at Second West and 19th South 
streets.

WHAT UTAH ciMAKES 



Building up home indus- 
try is a tradition with the 
people of Utah. The 
utilizing of local resources 
and the employment of 
home people to the end of 
making prosperity a com- 
mon b'.essing are the 
bright ideal of the build- 
ers and the workers. 








The Original Utah Woolen Mills, established 
in lOOS. are a consistent builder of Utah. 
A pioneer in the woolen wear manufactur- 
ing industry, it is pushing steadily forward, 
increasing its output, enlarging its facilities 
and adding to its corps of loyal employes. 
The "Mills" now markets its famous Jack 
Frost Brand products in seventeen wes'ern 
States. It manufactures all the staple lines 
of woolen wear and pursues the equitable 
policy of selling direct from the factory to 
the consumer. 



With its new addition, now in course of 
construction, the Utah Woolen Mills will 
have 30,000 square feet of floor space. Its 
equipment and machinery are of the most 
modern type and its craftsmen arc unexcelled 
in experience and skill. The company cm- 
ploys a total of 300 employes. The home 
of the industry is on Richards Street, one- 
half block south of Temple Gate, Salt Lake 
City,
