IOWA STATE COLLEGE

AM E S

VEISHEA

A Step Toward Greater Unity

Primary Purpose of Exposition: To eliminate the break in college work caused by five divisional celebrations, on five week-ends of two terms.

Resulting Purpose of Exposition: 'I'o develop the spirit of unity, unity between Iowa State College and Iowa people, unity between AMES and high school students, unity between the alumni and students; unity between the students of the five divisions.

Preliminary Organization: Representatives from the Councilor Student Organizations of . each division met and discussed the possibilities of such an exposition. It was placed to a vote before the students of each division and it was found that a large ,majority were in favor of giving it a trial. The student representatives then formed the plan for the control of the exposition, a representative from each division, one from the Woman's Guild and one from the Cardinal Guild. The officers consist of a student manager and a permanent secretaty,both selected by the committee.

The Name VEl SHEA : Formed from the first letter of our five divisions-Veterinary, Engineering, Industrial Science, Home Economics and Agriculture. Formed because it represented a union of all divisions to present an exposition which was entirely ., All College."

MAY FETE

In the May Fete which holds the honor position of being the initial feature of Veishea, Helen Easter as May Queen, Eleanor Murray as Maid Marion and Marcella Dewell as Page have been selected by the women students to hold the important positions.

"The Return of Spring," as the pageant is called, was arranged by Harriet Schleiter in a contest held early in the year by the Women's GUild.

The pageant, which will be staged on the west bank of Lake LaVerne, opens with the new May Queen.as Princess Springtime asleep 'at the side of an old queen on the throne. Margaret King, who was May Queen at a former pageant, will take the part of the old queen and will be attended by Sarah Manhardt as Maid Marion and Verna Hunter 'as Page.

Claris Pettigrew as Prince October with his Autumn Leaves, Marie Solomon as November with his Frost Spirits, Ethel Dowell as December with her Snowflakes, Helen Curtiss as January and Ann Mundt as February with their Ice Spirits, and Freda Sutherland as March with Soft Breezes' and Gold Winds. tell the old' queen of their useless attempts to rouse the sleeping Springtime. Then Prince April, played by Lucile Wormhoudt, comes with his Sunbeams, Flowers and Grasses, awakens, Springtime anel takes her to the old Queen where she is crowned.

Music will be furnished by a selected orchestra and the college band under the, direction of Professor Oscar Hawley,

All arrangements for the pageant have been made by women students.

\

KNIGHTING OF SENIOR ENGINEERS

Immediately following the May Fete and on the same grounds will be presented the knighting of the Senior Engineers as Knights of the Order of the Guard of St. Patrick. This is an annual affair with the Engineers and is part of the St. Patrick's day celebration, which this year is combined with Veishea.

Those Senior Erig lneer s and faculty men who have honored their Division and the College by their activities in college affairs and interest in the advancement of the 'college, are knighted. At the same time the Engineer's lady who was elected at the Campfire last fall will be presented with the off'tcta! emblem of the American Association of Collegiate Engineers, under whose direction the entire program is presented.

As the performance will be in pantomime, there is no need to fear that you will -not be able to hear. 'I'h e Engineering Council will arrive first as the governing student organization in the Engineering Division. The famous Blarney Stone which each year disappears immediately following the visit of St. Patrick, will appear as soon as St. Patrick arrives. No one knows where this stone is placed from one year to the next, but each year it appears at the appointed time without fail. Not more than two senior engineers ever know the hiding place of the. stone, except

at the time of the ceremonies. I

THE CARNIVAL

Friday afternoon on old State Field between Engineering Hall and Chemistry Hall, will be staged the biggest, greatest, most stupendous, awe-inspiring carnival that has ever been loose this side of Chicago. You may have heard of carnivals, state fairs, county fairs and such like, but never before have you had an cpportuntty to see such a collection of worth-while and worthless shows, games, stunts, exhibits and entertainments as you will witness at this carnival.

Money will buy. nothing but tickets. If you do not get your money's worth, try the next joint. Maybe you will have better luck there .. If you are thirsty, hungry, tired, ambitious or don't care, there will be ample provision to satisfy.your wants. There will be fun, harmony and excitement.

Of course your girl will want one of those kewpie dolls. Nobody has failed to win one unless dad's check has been delayed.

For the Profs there have 'been included a few fine simon-pure educational exhibits in hopes that they will get acquainted with what their fellow sufferers are doing on the other end 'of the campus.

If there is anything you want that you do not see, ask for it.

If there is anything you see that you do not like, just keep quiet. All the shows have passed Central Hall. All the food has been inspected by the Soils Department and is guaranteed to soil anything it touches. All the drinks have been passed by the Music Department; the possibilities are limited only by the drinker. Keep your hand on your pocket 'book and your eye on the paddle wheel. It will save you money.

"SCANDALS OF 1922"

. The first and only appearance in America.

In the Ames Scandals of 1922 you will get more for your money than you will receive for twice the amount in the next twelve months. You will laugh, you will weep, you will be surprised, shocked and scandalized but you will not be disappointed. Bring all your friends. The Armory will hold them all.

PART I

1. Opening Chor'us. You have never dreamed that old Iowa State boasted such a chorus. Don't forget to listen while you look.

2. Ames Tumblers. Old friends in new roles. Try some of the stunts on the bedroom rug tomorrow morning.

3. If Ziegfeld Were President of Iowa State. Don't miss this one. You will get some choice inside information about some of the things that have puzzled you for a long time. Seven parts.

4. Cosmopol ltan Stri~g Quartet. You will be ready for the soothing sobs of syncopation by this time.

5. When the Roll Is Called. You may be there. Better be sure that insurance is all O.K. before you see this.

6. An Ag. Version of Grand Opera. This is a Hick act sure enough.

7. Lessons I n Acting. Public Speaking staff take notice.

S. The Man of Mystery. Prince Naej of India has been obtained at no little cost and some grease paint to present his most blood-curdling and thrilling act, "Sawing a Woman in Half." If you don't believe it, how does he do it?

9. Latest Scandals. No they haven't been eating prunes, they are perfectly natural.

10. Closing Chor-us, You may have heard this before but you have never hear a it better.

The Open House is primarily an educational exhibition of work done by each of the college departments.

Vife wish it were possible for us to keep our Open House in operation continuously throughout the three .days of the Veishea. We kn ow that you will fail to realize the extent of work offered here until you have made 'a complete trip about the campus and have seen 'all ou-r exhibits. '-IVe know that a single day is entirely inadequate.

The Open House is particularly for the :benefit of the visiting High School students, and, we hope, future Ames students. Perhaps the Open House will give you just a glimpse of what Iowa State offers you' of higher education in technical subjects.

Numerous guides will be at your disposal to take you to any part of the campus. Others will take you through the departments in which you are ,most interested. All students are at your service in securing information which you desire. Ask all the questions you can think of.

MILITARY

No small part of' the credit for the success of the 1922 Veishea belongs to the Military Department and its personnel. The cadet corps and the officers are in evidence everywhere. From the <activities in connection with the May Fete and the Knighting Ceremonies, thru the Review, the Parade and the Carnival to the great Sham Battle over the hills around Lake LaVerne the military department has figured heavily.

Few individuals can witness a military parade or review wlthout la bit of thrill. Certainly no loyal Ames man or woman could watch the review of the cadets Friday morning without a swelling of the chest. No finer cadets can be found anywhere. They appear to take glory from the exploits of their iilustrious pred ecessors who established 'such notable records for Ames during the late I'mI'.

If you want to see modern troops in action in modern warfare, don't miss the sham battle Saturday afternoon after the track meet. The infantry and artillery will storm the heights south of T.he Maples. It is expected that one 'phase of the operations will necessitate the bridging of Lake La.Ver n e which will be done in approved military style by the engineering: corps.

ATHLETIC PROGRAM

Friday Afternoon-Baseball, Ames vs. Nebraska.

Saturday Morning-Baseball, Ames vs. Nebraska. Saturday Afternoon-Open High School Track,

Golf Tournament.

There are four hundred high school athletes entered in these

Tennis and

events.

..

SATURDAY NIGHT SHOW

For those whose feet refuse to carry them farther or who had enough dancing Thursday evening there will be presented at 8: 15 in Ag, Hall assembly, Saturday evening, a light, carefree and soothing combination of music, dance and movie which is guaranteed to send everyone home in the proper Veishea mood.

Selections by the musical organizations of Iowa State, a real Filtpino folk dance by members of the Cosmopolitan Club and a comedy film will constitute the show.

The musical part of the program will consist of three selections by the college band, a solo b;1' Tolbert MacRae, head of the music department, and songs by the two glee clubs. The band will be made up of the forty best men in the regular band under the direction of Oscar Hatch Hawley.

'I'heTolk dance is the Philippine Rigodon and the men who take part are students from those islands. The girls will be dressed in true Philippine costumes.

"I Do," the two-reel comedy film features Harold Lloyd. It is recommended as the best sort of la r_eallyentertaining comedy.

The 'program will last two hours.

SATURDAY NIGHT DANCE

Fearing that Thursday's superb hop would not satisfy the desires of our fair-co-eds we finally succeeded in persuading Platt

.. to syncopate for a few short hours longer-Saturday night; same place, same time. The decorations are in charge of the freshmen so by fa course of geometric (?) reasoning we arrive at the conclusion that our idea of harmony may be slightly upset. Come 'and be glad that such a great three days have passedonly to come again a year hence.

VEISHEA ,AIMS

Veishea is the incarnation or expression of Ames Spirit. Where formerly divisional shows, celebrations and carnivals existed, now flourishes Veishea. Small tho the beginnings may have been, all future Ames' men and women will come to know and boost Veishea. And not only Ames' men and women but all Iowans from Illinois to Nebraska, from Minnesota to Missouri will know of Veishea and look forward each year to the month of May when their college will throw open her doors and bid them welcome to Veishea.

Tho every effort has been made this year to put forth a truly representative demonstration of Ames Spirit and life at the college there are many shortcomings. The visitors will overlook or soon forget these, but the students and faculty will note everyone and next year will see none of the same mistakes and omissions. Where the Veishea committee this year has had to blaze a new trail future committees, will need only to perfect and improve.

N ext year will see a greater, more perfect Veishea exposition. But next year there will be more visitors and next year's throngs will have a standard by which to gauge the 1923 Veishea, Ames Spirit will put that exposition over just as it has made possible the launching, of the Veishea idea.

N ext year, and in all the years to come, there will be greater and better Veisheas. Each sueceedingyear, it is hoped, will see greater and greater numbers of Iowans availing themselves of the opportunity to gefacquaintedwith their

college. '

IOWA STAT]~ COLLEGE

Iowa State College is unique in that it is the only strictly technical school in the state; and. that it ranks among the leaders in the United States in practically everyone of its five major lines of work: agriculture, engineering, home economics, industrial science and veterinary

medicine. >

The plant, land and equipment of Iowa State College represent, at the present, an investment on the part of the state of approximately five million dollars. More than half of this amount is represented by the buildings on the campus.

The entire college domain consists of 1600 acres of choice Iowa land, most of it in Story County. From an original area of 125 acres the campus proper now covers more than half a section,or 320 acres.

From less than one hundred students fifty years ago the enrollment has grown until now seven thousand students receive some sort of technical instruction annually. This does not include special or winter short course students.

Tuition at Iowa State College _ "shall be forever free" to the citizens of the state. The institution and its instructional work are supported by the state and yet the _ education of more than seven thousand men and women cO'13-t~ the farmers of Iowa annually less than tbree eggs, at twenty cents a dozen, for each hen thet

own.

AMES

Information regarding admission to the college and the instructionoffel'ed 111 the various departments will be gIad'Iy furnished. Address the Registrar, Iowa State College, Ames, Iowa,
