THE DAILY NEBRASKAN
Sunggy, October 5, 1947
One of the common gripes around Ag campus last year
concerned the relative impossibility of making a class down
town on the short ten minute period between classes. Un
less one had a car, he was sure to be at least five minutes
late and, if he missed the bus, up to twenty minutes late.
Students suggested several remedies to the Ag Exec
Board, and to faculty advisers. Acting upon their sugges
tions, the Faculty tried the only solution which could be
put into immediate action, they scheduled the morning
classes at Ag on the half hour.
This was fine in that it allowed ample time to walk
down town to a class if necessary; however, it also neces
sitated having a class at-UL30 which, in turn, caused classes
to run into the noon hour. Since afternoon classes went
back on the regular schedule, the noon period was clipped
to forty minutes for those having afternoon classes at one.
The noon rush at the cafeteria was increased consid
erably because most of the students are served after twelve
thirty and, with the short noon hour, there is less time to
The faculty is considering the new problem at the
present time and students are asked to give the new plan
a fair trial since it was for their convenience that the new
plan was formulated.
Dean Burr, speaking of the situation, said Thursday,
in part. "We are trying the new plan for the convenience of
the students. We are now making a study of the present
situation and, if it cannot be worked out satisfactorily we
will have to amend it in some way, most probably to start
classes at twenty minutes after the hour."
So how about it, students? Let's give the faculty a
while to study the facts before we complain too much on
the present situation. Time spent in deliberation now will
insure the success of a new plan if it becomes necessary.

A week end of exertion has
marked the past days at U. N.
What with the rally, street dance,
farmers formal, and of course va
rious and sundry games of foot
ball. Student exuberance began
with the rally. Cheer leaders,
corn cobs, and tassels did a fine
job luring; the student body
onto the street and many indi
viduals who had planed to at
tend Frankie Carle found them
selves dancing under the stars
of the football frolic street dance
and enjoying it. The number
of casualties was high, how
ever, since spectators seemed
to make up the majority of the
crowd. One result was pros
pective jitterbugs losing each
other but dancing on alone and
undaunted. Ed Merriot and Bar
bara Tobin found a solution to
the situation by assuming dan
cers' position calmly and let
ting the crowd push them to
Ag campus went western Friday
night. Everyone was disguised in
frontier or wild western garb
with, cowboys, puritans and sher
iffs retaining a generous repre
sentation. One interesting feature
of the evening- was Keith Fred
rickson, resplendent on cowboy
boots and seated on a bale of hay.
Close observers could hear him
muttering sadly about a new un
derstanding ot girls dancing in
high heels. Bob Scire ve, standing
among tumble weeds and sage
brush impressed the crowd with
his newly developed western
drawl and the dubbing of the Ag
residence halls as "Ft. Loomis
Hall" and "Love Memorial Trad
ing Post." Climax of the evening
was ,of course, the presentation
of Queen Bernice Young in a
striking, back to civilization white
Pi Phi pledges were evidently
incensed with the old spirit after
the rally. Seven a. m. Saturday
morning saw them dragging ac
tives bodily from the house for
a brisk game of tough tackle.
Altho dismayed by the surprise
invasion, the home team re
taliated by coming through for
a smashing 13-0 victory. Two
opposers Genene Mitchel and
Joris Devereaux acted as sports
photographers and handled the
complete coverage of the out
standing grid classic. t
The campus showed many evi
dences of becoming a migration
point this week-end what with
the droves of out of town guests.
Gene Edwards was visibly happier
than usual following the arrival of
pin-mate Jackie Owen from Boul
der. Dick Smith showed the same
tendencies at seeing Dina Buck
ingham altho her visits have been
a weekly occurrence.

University of Nebraska students
are among the most co-operative
of any in the country, in the
opinion of Mr. Richard A. Far
ley, assistant director of general
administration of the UN libraries.
"There is no discipline prob
lem at Love Library,' he told a
Daily Nebraskan reporter Friday.
As many as 200 Huskers study
on the first floor without an at
tendant to maintain quiet. No
abuse or vandalism of any type
has been noted, Farley said.
Circulation Tops Record
Circulation, which exceeds last
year's .record high, is 5000 week
ly, exclusive of books in refer
ence rooms. Farley attributes in
creased interest in the library's
use to improved facilities and
greater maturity of the students.
About $40,000 is spent yearly
for 10 to 15 thousand new books,
most of which are purchased lor
classroom use. Faculty members
are librarians cooperate in se
How to Find New Books
Shelves at the left as one en
ters each reading room contain
the newest books, still in their
jackets. Once read, new books are
kept in reading room stacks for
easy reference. Their jackets are
filed for use in future displays.
The Bulletin Board, publication
for UN faculty and official offices,
prints the title, author and sum
mary sentence of the new books
considered most outstanding by
Ag, Law, Bessey Hall and the
four Love Library divisional di
rectors. A copy of the Bulletin
Board is on file in the Social
Science reading room, Farley said.
