help out now when help is so sorely needed.
After taking a sneak preview of the bene
fit show, the Nebraskan promises it to be well
worth the price of admission 30 cents. Tickets
are being sold by both Corn Cobs and Tassels.
The student defense committee, the pep clubs,
the Student Union, and those in the show are
doing- their part to raise funds for the war re
lief. The success of their efforts will be regis

'High Jinks' Show
For War Relief
The Student Defense Committee with the
cooperation of the Student Union will present
an all-student benefit show in the Union ball
room Saturday afternoon and evening. The en
tire proceeds, excepting tax, wil be contributed
to Red Cross War Relief Fund.
When national war relief drive was start
ed, the defense committee felt the students of
the university had contributed enough times
this year to various relief drives. The Student
Council has just completed a drive for funds
for the annual lied Cross contributions and
went far over its goal.
In preference to another house to house
canvass, the defense committee is sponsoring
the benefit show Saturday with the hope that
every studentwill buy a ticket and come to the
affair. A sell-out for both performances will be

Extravagant and numerous parties at Ne
braska were forbidden in 1917 by the official
action of the inter-fraternity council.
The number of "hall parties" was limited
to two a year for fraternities, while house
dances were sanctioned in moderation. Con
cerning formals the council took no definite
act but the consensus of the opinion was
against making either of the two big parties a
formal and all agreed that formal flavors in
cluding flowers, favors, and other useless ex
travagances should be voluntarily dropped.
The rule against subscription dances which
was passed in 1916 was reaffirmed by the
Proving their willingness to cooperate to
economize for the good of America's cause in
the war, the Pan-hellenic council unanimously
ruled that no formal parties be given this year
and only one informal downtown party be
given. Banquets were not abandoned and were
to be given downtown as usual.
Delegates at the meeting declared that
coeds wil make no new party gowns for their
big dance. Last year's garment renovated
would serve the purpose for the ocasion.
"Five hundred girls for Red Cross" was
the slogan of the girls' club in their registra
tion campaign. Members meet in room 202 Ne
braska Hall for one hour each week to sew
under the direction of the City Red Cross Asso
ciation. French surgical dressings and "kits"
, were made.
