NU Yearbook Publication
Was 'No Joke' in Old Days
Announcement that the Corn
hrsker will be out next week is
not startling news to University
students, who take the appear
ance of the yearbook each spring
as a matter of course.
- In the old days, however, no
effort was made to publish the
volume annually, and early edi
tions appeared once every two
or three years. The first of these,
caHed The Sombrero, was pub
lished in 1884.
Its title page features an en
graving of six young men wear
ing uniforms of a sort, large hats
ard knee boots, and equipped
with rifles and hatchets. The ex
planatory note stated: "We give

In the preface the editors com
plained that their efforts had
been complicated by a variety of
difficulties, including a shortage
of time, lack of people to assume
financial responsibility and an

yet there comes a time in the
affairs of any student when it is
necessary for him to know more
than can be inscribed on cellu

of '85 inevitably gets left."
Frosh of the '80's
Freshmen probably have not
changed too much since the early
times, if their history may be ac
cepted as true. With tongue in
cheek, perhaps, and yet with con
siderable accuracy, the writer
characterizes the first year students.
"For real genuine grit whole
some appetites and big feet, the
freshman class takes the prem
ium," he says. "Periodically the
whole class assembles to devise
ways and means for improving
the management of the institu
tion. They inform the facultv of
the best methods of instruction,
show them where they have erred
in the past and with great mag
nanimity offer to forgive past
mistakes if they are not re
peated." The Sombrero for 1884 also re

In the last naes fun was poked
at a grouo of independent women
who persisted in avoiding the

as members of the WGIA ((We Go

The Senior exhibit now being
shown at Morrill hall in connec

annual exhibit of student work,
features four pieces by each of 33
The show is in gallery A on
second floor and was planned
and created by the senior class
themselves. A committee, con
sisting of Don Hazelrigg, Alice
Burch, and Bill Moomey, made
the arrangements for the show.
The seniors decided which indi
vidual works they would show in
Included are water colors, oil
paintings, advertising work, de

Grade School Art
The art education students who j
have work in the show have in- I
eluded in their selections, one j
niece of outstanding work from
the pupils in their classes at the
Lincoln public schools.
Several pieces of modern fur
niture design, including a plywood-metal-glass
coffee table are
being shown by Donald Sharp.
Another of Sharp's creations, a
plastic molded modern lamp,
gives evidence of Sharp's origin
ality in this field.
Among the students showing
works in ceramics is Miss Mozer,
whose salt clay pitcher and ox
blood gazefired bowl have been
pointed out by show-goers.
Miss Woodbridge's wood grain
sculpture has attracted even
more notice among spectators
than her oil paintings.
"There was no interference on
the part of the art faculty. The
students did the whole show by
themselves," says Prof. Duard
Lacing head of the art department.

to create the impression of a

decorate in several hours.
