1935 Homecoming {;ommittee
By VIviAN WITT

Anyone who is capable of tracking down and buttonholing any member of
this 1935 Homecoming committee would make a good runner-up for our illus-
trious friend, Sherlock, the man with the pipe. .
Bill Schilling almost secretly confides his hidden passions over the telephone,
in a conversation dedicated to the patience and endurance of possible party-
liners. Bill has been frisking around among the merry Muchachas in far-off
Mexico, and only tore himself away to come back and be general chairman for
Homecoming. It's just as well the Muchachas didn't lure too strongly, or the
Psi U's would be hunting for another President.
Bill is the important man for whom they almost had to call off the Grand
March at the J. B. last year (he was in line and late). He has the distinction
of being the one man who evidently didn't start dressing the day before the Ball.
But leaving white ties and tails aside, we're here to tell you that Bill deeply de-
serves the applause which he is getting from all sides. He was on the executive
committee for Homecoming last year, and so knows the ropes; he was elected
to Silver Spur, and was one of those who made the J.B. of lllst year such a grand
success. We can easily see why 1935-36--his senior year in the Arts college-
will be even a bigger year for Bill Schilling than 1934-35-if possible.
Our hearts were hugging our tonsilless throat, when we talked to Hugh
Gage, Associate chairman. He is so handsome! (Long, gulping sigh). Hugh is
a Chi Psi and lives way, way over South Minneapolis, but we've been forbidden
to give you his telephone number. Incidentally we owe our nifty Homecoming
slogan (Whipsaw Northwestern) to Hugh's dad, who is a Civil Engineer for our
state. We quote Hugh, "Yes, I play golf. Where? Well, all over the Univer-
sity course-not on the fairways." His P.O. number is 6490, girls. You can
also place a small remunerative consideration in P.O. 3741, for this information.
Marj Morrill, associate chairman, is one of our blonde Thetas. And she I],ot
only is a stunner, but she has the gray rua,tter, which elected her to Mortar
Board, and the Board of Publication. We'll miss her when she graduates next
spring.
And now to our blonde. You see, we give you a lot of choice. Henry Lyk-
ken, a Phi Delt, is going places in a big way. He was President of the Sophomore
Commission, but has come a long way, until he is now a Junior in a five-year
course in business engineering. He'll be back.
Continental Virginia Way has just returned from Gay Paree after spending
her summer working for a steamship company. She reports along with other
celebrities, that Frenchmen haven't got half the appeal that American men
have. In fact, they don't even wear bi-swing coats. Virginia is a saleswoman
extraordinary. Last year, she sold Homecoming buttons to such capacity that
they almost ran out of stock. Virginia does so many things that we can hardly
keep up with her. She is President of the Junior women's organization, Tam
O'Shanter, and finds time in between to smile at us from behind the counter at
Dayton's. Virginia lives in Midway. No wonder Minneapolis and St. Paul have
a standing feud.
And at the bottom of the page to the right you'll see Bill Plymat, the editor
of this sheet. Bill is the daily columnist who grinds out "the Barrister" bi-
weekly and oversees the editorial page of the "World's Largest." He's a senior
in the law school and was the politician that "put over" the law school coopera-
tive book store. Last year he promoted the J. B. to its largest gross and at-
tendance, and is the guy who devised the new alumni registration plan. He hails
from Mankato, Minnesota, where he's the scion of a family of "Barristers."
Ellis Harris is the lad who keeps us posted on sports, from telling us about
goings-on at football practice to characterizing our favorite players. He's sports
editor of the "World's Largest," and has a by-line in this issue. Be sure to look
for it.

To THE ALUMNI OF THE
UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA:
Homecoming is a festival
day. The entire University
decorates itself in a cloak of
gaiety. Friends and alumni
return to the campus. The
staff and students welcome
them. This year. 13,000 stu-
dents extend their greetings.
In the midst of our festivities
we shall not forget the work,
the ideals, the standards, the
ambitions, nor the state serv-
ices of the University. We
shall not dwell upon these
more important matters. but
we shall bear in mind that at
heart and fundamentally the
University is an educational
institution.
The University cherishes the
loyalty of those who have
grown and profited at her
hands, and she welcomes their
good will in her effort to serve
the students and the state
better in the days ahead.
Cordially yours,

BERNIE BIERMAN
With typical modesty, Bernie Bierman, the Captain of the famous football
team of 1915, came back to his Alma Mater in 1932. There was no blare
of trumpets nor any announcements of expected conquests. But it was not
long before the Gophers had become a team recognized from coast to coast,
and the Brown jug was again home. The Homecoming of Bernie has been
glorious. In these past three years, Bernie has won not only football cham·
pionships-he has won the hearts of the thousands of students and alumni
who revere Minnesota and who are, today as always, with him, win or lose.

alumni registration system by which returning alumni may
find their former classmates and friends who are in the city.
Never before used in connection with any H omecoming
celebration either at Minnesota or elsewhere the new sys-
tem is designed to remedy the one point at which all pre-
vious celebrations have completely failed-namely, in pro-
viding a simple method by which alumni may contact on
the campus their former classmates.

Before this year it has only been "happenchance" when
alumni have found their friends in the scores of thousands
who have jammed the city. Aside from the chance of see-

to see old grads with whom they went to school. Here-

that few alumni met many of their friends at the Homecom-
ing celebrations.
In order to avoid this problem this year, an index sys-
tem with a new type of registration card for use of the
alumni was devised. On the cards which are filled out by
alumni in the Minnesota Union will be information as to
