ONE READY Building "B" in the center of the university men's

Yell King Issues Call
For Student Support
In preparation for the Indiana game, Yell King Martin Pesek
today issued six suggestions to students seated in the card section
to assure better co-ordination in the traditional half-time card
(1) Cards should be in proper order and ready to flash as soon
as the first half ends, since the flashes are prepared to coincide with
the band formations.
((2) No one should leave their seats in the card section after
ten minutes of the second quarter have been played.
(3) If there are empty seats, all persons should move toward
the center of the card section so that only the edges have to be
filled. This will make it easier to fill vacant seats.
((4) Cards should be held with the long side horizontal and the
short side vertical.
(5) Signal for raising the cards will be the chant: "'One, two,
three, UP!" The same signal will be used for lowering: "One, two,
(6) Since paper cannot be obtained as in pre-war years, stu
dents are asked not to destroy their cards. Later in the game, they
will be passed to the aisles. Corn Cobs will collect .them so that they
may be re-used a later home games.
There will be a change in the order of card stunts. This should
be kept in mind by all the students planning to sit in the card sec
tion. No. 1, a football with a red "N" will be No. 3. No. 2, the words
"Hi Hoosier," will be No. 4. No. 3, the words "Bo plus Bernie", will
be No. 1. No. 4, the word "Hoosiers," will be No. 5. No. 5, a red
"N" will be No. 2.
The cheerleader will remind the section before each stunt
which number is next. Close attention by these students will be nec
essary because there will be very little time between stunts.

ing "B" is the first of the three
dorm buildings now under con
struction to be completed. It is
designed to hold 68 men in two

All space in this dorm was as
signed last spring by a lottery
among applicants for the space.
Men slated for all three dorm
buildings have been living tem
porarily in the Field House, at
Huskerville or in private homes.
Although the building will be
ready for occupancy Saturday,
Brown noted the game rooms and
lounges in the basement will not
