SHE CAME TO US in the school year 1956-1957 when there was no campus. Classes were being
held at the Las Vegas High School Auditorium and quarters were cramped. Mrs. Mitchell became a
friend to every student, helping him in scholastic and personal problems alike. Mrs. Mitchell met
every new student that came to Nevada Southern. She directed the orientation period in testing and
acquainting the newcomers in the ways of the university. Being counselor and an instructor in sociology
would be enough for most to handle but not Mrs. Mitchell. When a group of girls came to
her and asked if she would advise the first A. W. S. group on campus, of course she said yes. Many
extra, long hours were put in acting as the faculty advisor for student government. She had a vote
in the Executive Committee but always sustained from using it. She felt that this was student business
and she was there only to advise not to make the decisions for the students. On more than
one occasion she acted as a mediator between factors in student politics. If a problem arose, Mrs.
Mitchell was always there listening patiently with an open mind and a willingness to serve that
is found in too few of us.
So to you, Mrs. Eugenie Mitchell, counselor, instructor, advisor, and most important — friend,
we dedicate this 1961 Epilogue.
SHOWING their appreciation,
a farewell party was
given by the students in
honor of Mrs. Mitchell,
when Nevada Southern lost
her at the semester break.

Greetings to the students and faculty at the University of Southern
Nevadans in all of the sixteen counties to the north have seen with approval
the tremendous strides Clark County has taken during the past decade. They
have looked perhaps with surprise but certainly with growing pride as Las
Vegas emerged as our largest city, becoming not only an internationally known
vacation center but also a key point in the West for industry and commerce.
Emanating today from Clark County is a vitality which without doubt has been
a major factor in the prosperity our entire state is enjoying.
In close step with business and population expansion in Southern Nevada
has been the growth of the cultural complex which includes new churches,
elementary schools and - most important - the campus at the University of
Yours is a young school, still lacking in many of the facilities which must
be provided to meet today's demands as well as the bigger ones of tomorrow.
It is the spirit which counts, however, and you should take great pride in the
fact that your campus shows a vigor and enthusiasm that many far older and
larger institutions do not have. You are helping to build an educational center
in Las Vegas in which all of Nevada takes great satisfaction.
My congratulations and my personal good wishes to all of you involved in
this task. It is spirit like yours which is taking Nevada ahead.

Building & Grounds
THE MEMBERS of the Building and Grounds Department
are some of the most indispensible people on
campus. They are responsible for servicing and maintaining
all physical property. This year the department
was given another responsibility — maintaining
the long awaited landscaping in front of Grant Hall.
Students Don Farr and Bill Walker were just two
of the many students that aided in keeping the
buildings in order.

HERE IS INCORPORATED all the freshness of morning.
The climb to maturity . . . continued with renewed vitality
. . . new responsibilities are met and accepted. The dreams
of youth are pitted against the reality of life ... for some,
this experience has stimulated their quest for the fulfillment
of their dreams . . . for others, alterations must be
made before they can attain their goals. For all, it is a
period of reckoning.

NEVADA SOUTHERN has three major publications
— the Beau's Bits, a handy and informative booklet
which appears in September aiding the new
students in their orientation; the Rebel Yell, a
monthly newspaper which keeps the student body
aware of what is happening on campus in way of
social events, newsworthy items about students
and faculty, and important notifications from the
University and the executive committee; and the
Epilogue, the student yearbook which is a book
of memories of those things the students have experienced
during the past year.

Beau (Virgil Croft), appearing at all
basketball games and rallies, aided
the cheerleaders in creating interest
and spirit in the spectators.
SELECTED BY the Pep Commission for their
ability to lead cheers, each has the task of
creating school spirit. They don their white
sweaters and sneakers for each basketball
game and rally, ready to cheer our team
to victory. Pajamas became the attire for
one rally sponsored by the cheerleaders
and proved to be a welcome change from
the every day activities of the students.

contiguous with the Intercollegiate Knights. Although
both Sigma Gamma and the I.K.'s are very young, they
have made their presence felt in both service and social
functions. Ushering at plays, helping during registration,
and sponsoring dances are only a few of their many activities.

ONE VERY IMPORTANT FUNCTION of any University is its
contributions to the community. Through such fine cultural
programs as the Sunday Afternoon Music Matinee, the University
strives to promote closer ties between the campus and
the people of Las Vegas.

of ancient China. The honorable reader, visible

added to authenticity of the play. Lady Precious

NEVADA SOUTHERN students saw a variety

including a costume Halloween Party,
square dances, a pajama rally, and both
a Hawaiian and a South of the Border party
