Journalism, Is Given

Worth. '

University" of Nebraska, has been

..ti: .u:.t 1 i.i t: !il
jjuuiii., wuii. ii una awuacu mm wnn

tion of his services as an educator.
The honor was accorded Professor

of journalism of the American ex-
peditionary force university at
Beaune, Cote d'Or, France. The edu
cator has just returned to this coun
try and is at present visiting at

friends and relatives are located.
An honorary commission of cap

The medal is conferred only upon
those individuals who have attained
high distinction in scienct-or in let
ters. r
Prior to his departure from France
Professor Fogg toured the western
battle front on the personal invita
tion of General Pershing.
Boyles Graduates
Go to the Fore in the
Omaha Banking World
Frequently the newspapers con
tain items about the advancement of
young men in the business world anl
it often happens that these items tell
of graduates of Boyles college who
have attained high places m the
banking business.
"I.want to say .a few words about
two young men who have distin
guished themselves in banking," said
H. B. Boy.cs.
"One of these is Thoma F. Mur
phy, assistant cashier of the United
States National bank, one of the
largest banks in the west. The other
is Chas. W. Mead, secre'ary of the
Omala Y.ust company, a corpor
. tion of large financial resources."
Mr. Murphy, during his student
days with Boyles college, showed a
s particular aptness in bookkeeping
and accountancy. He decided that
banking was his future and immed
iately after receiving.his diploma ac
cepted a place with the United
States National bank. He was aim
ing high.
No man in Omaha has made a
more marked success and the why
. and wherefore of that success can
best be gleaned from Mr Murphy's
own words: "The training 1 re
ceived at Boyles college has enabled
me to attain a monthly salary equal
to my ANNUAL starting salary
with the same institution."
Mr. Mead's success has been
equally startling in themanner in
which it points the open way to sal
arv and oromotion for aily one with
ambition, plus training. Upon his
graduation from Boyics college he
took a clerkship in an Omaha bank.
He Ttept an eye open for opportun
ity, and when the Maskell State bank
needed a cashier he was ready for
the position. He made such a name
for himself there that, recently whtn
the officers and directors of the
Omaha National, Nebraska's largest
bank, organized the Om.ha Trust
company, they chose Charles W.
Mead as its secretary.
It's a big post, but he has reached
it in eight years after leavin j Boyles
college. He says Boyles trainipg did
much to help him make good. t
University of Omaha Launches Drive
to - Raise $500,000 for Endowment Fund
Plan New History Course
for Central High School
Principal J. G. Masters of the Cen
tral High school is working upon a
plan to revise the course of study in
the history department of the high
ichool. According to the present
plan, all students are required to
study Greek, Roman and American
history. In order to complete the
other requirements necessary for
graduation, the student does not
have time to take courses offered in
modern European history.
Mr. Masters considers it essential
that students should s know some
thing of contemporary European
history and at the same ttiffe learn
something of Greek and Roman his
tory, and it is with the view of com
bining the three courses in one that
Mr. Masters is contemplating tne
change. v
"The new course would cover
Greek and Roman history in less
than one semester," said Mr. Mast-

Founded 10 Years Ago by Professional and Business Men of Omaha, This School
Has Had a Remarkable Growthand Today Has an Enrollment of 540 Stu
dents John Jacobs Memorial Gymnasium and Joslyri Hall, the Present
Buildings, Are Well Adapted to the Needs t)f the Institution.
The University of Omaha, an in
stitution which has grown from
practically nothing to one of the most
powerful institutions in the country
in less than 10 years, rs to be ex
tended. The board of trustees and
officers of the university have agreed
to raise a fund of $500,000 , in this
city for an immediate extension of
the institution, creation of ne"w de
partments and enlargement of
The University of Omaha was
founded, by a group of representa
tive citizens, all well known business
and professional men, on October 8,
1908, to conduct and maintain a co
educational university for the pro
moting of sound learning and edu
cation, under such influence as will
!ead to the highest type of Christiam
character and citizenship in Omaha.
The idea was to create an institution
where at the least possible expense
all classes of young men and women
may secure an education that would
fit them to enter at once upon the
successful pursuit of an honorable
Established 10 Years.
Though the university was organ
ized in October, 1908, it did not
open its doors until November 1,
1909, when 26 students enrolled.
During the school semester, just
closed, 540 students attended the
Omaha university.
The university now needs en
dowment to .firmly establish it.
It needs added equipment to in
crease its efficiency and means to
extend its educational service to
Greater Omaha. The raising has
been sanctioned by the board of
trustees of the university and is now
under way.
The university will conduct an or
ganized, well established campaign
along firm lines, and expect to can
vass the entire city in the interest
of the institution.. This fund, which
is to be raised, immediately and in
the shortest possibly time, will per
mit a forward movement in a gen
eral way; it assures a larger and
permanent faculty of the highest
type, and guarantees an enlarged in
stitution, a greater constituency and
more influence.
Benefit to City.
This assures the city a co-educational
college offering a complete
and comprehensive training, a lo
calized educational service, an in
spirational educational center and a
ers. "It would also cover the be
ginning of the European nations and
study their history in relation to the
world war and to the United states."
It is not probable that the course
will be-, ready when school opens in
September as Mr. Masters, who has
been planning the-course for six
months, has not yet found a text
book that can be used for the course.
York College.
York College, York, Neb., has a
large student enrollment for the
summer school, the largest since
1913, and so far we know the largest
in the history of the institution,
writes the dean. There are enrolled
in the departments of the college
this summer 22 different students.
If this is an earnest of our fall en
rollment we should have one of the
best enrollments in the history of
the school. There are four men in
the. field now for students. They
are turning in a large number of
names who contemplate entering
this fall. Every indication points to
a big school. Never have we had
the conservatory rooms all engaged
so early in the year. There is not
a vacant room at the conservatory.
Indeed indications are that we could
use another building for a girls'
dormitory this fall. We will have
to depend upon the friends of the
college to help us house the girls
as well as the boys this coming year.
We are very fortunate to secure
F. E. Frank to coach our foot ball
'tarn. It was a happy find in every
ay. He comes with excellent ex
perience and with the entire confi
dence of all the lettered men of other
days. Any one who knows "Earny"
knows that we have one of the best
coaches in Nebraska. He it out for
students daring the next two months.

The last few years a credit sys
tem has been made possible to give
Omaha v teachers a chance to get
further credits and merits in this
city where they are employed.
Previous to the creation of this
system, which was founded here
in 1917, all members of the Omaha
school faculties were obliged to go
to Chicago and other cities of the
east to complete their education
as teachers. This credit school
system, which prepares the teachers
of Omaha, Council Bluffs and
other cities, for higher standards,
is to be greatly enlarged. Omaha
schools alone need anually an in
crease in the faculties of. about 100
teachers, which are now taken from
the local institution, as far as pos
sible Summer School Grows.
In 1917 when the university's
summer school was first opened,
but 12 students attended the course.
In the winter of the same year 30
students attended. In the summer
of 1918, 168 students enrolled and
in the year of -4918, 209 placed
their 'names on the roles. In this
year's summer school 300 students
are enlisted. .
The University of Omaha, which
is located on the Redick Reserve in
North Omaha, just west of Twenty
fourth street and between Pratt and
Evans streets', consists of two main
buildings, the John Jacobs Memorial
gymnasium, a building valued at
$25,000, and Joslyn hall, valued at
$75,000. The former Duilding serves
adequately all athletic needs and is
also used as an auditorium for large
public gatherings. Joslyn hall is a
commodious, well-appointed struc
ture containing administrative of
fices, class rooms, laboratories, .etc
Both buildings are substantial and
impressive, besides being thoroughly
well adapted to the needs of the in
stitution. '
Employ Fifteen Instructors.
The university conducts a college
of liberal arts and sciences, a teacher
training department, a home- eco
nomics department, a department of
fine arts, a preparatory department,
a school of law and extension work.
,The present faculty of the uni
versity consists of 15 well trained
teachers, among , whom are grad
uates and post-graduates of the best
institutions of America.
There have been graduated from
the university,, with, baccalaflreate
degrees, 68 young men and women,
who are now serving society in vari
ous fields of usefulness as physicians,

isters, college "and university pro-

In less than 10 years of its exist
ence, the university has spent more
than ($2,00,000 in maintaining and
promoting its work and providing
necessary facilities. Each year its
budget has increased and practically
all this outlay has been expended in
Omaha. The university has thus
far maintained its work with only
such funds as have been secured
from fees and from subscriptions.
In order to do away with the pres
ent hand-to-mouth mode of ma'in
tainance, an endowment of at least
$500,000 will be secured as quickly
as possible.
The Dr. S. K. Spalding scholar
ship of !,500, established by the
widow of Dr. S. K. Spalding, con
stitutes the beginning of such an
endowment. To this has. been add
ed the Mary Stoddard scholarship
of $1,000 and two gifts of Liberty
bonds, each of $50, presented by col
lege classes.
Trustees of the institution are
sure that the fund of $500,000 to
properly maintain the institution,
will be raised in but a few days.
