SPRING SHOW Grapefruit played their usual big part in the
Klub's spring show last year. Jack Solomon's script covered
two continents, while diapers covered the hero or "heroine" of
the piece.

With the 1950 Farmers Fair

a successful exposition. Prac

say, the best way to really en

and help with the working.
One thing sure, students com

Junior Ak-Sar-Ben will not be
thrown against the able show

Gary Lundeen, who walked
off with the Grand Champion
award at the Saturday night
show, according to Block and
Bridle custom, is ineligible to
win the award a second time.
This makes it more - than a
little rough on Gary as he is a
freshman and would have had
three more years of competition.
But we suspect the honor of be
ing this year's "champ" more
than makes up for his not be

College theme that Is hospital
ity and friendliness of spirit
the department of home eco
nomics and the Home Ec club
designed the day's program to
show Nebraska's girls opportu
nities available through the
study of home economics.
Truly, the group was handled
smoothly. In fact, one high
school girl in a later afternoon
meeting exclaimed, "I'm tired,
but yet I'm inspired." A true
indication of success.
Moral: It falls to reason, men,
that if once the Home Ec girls
become organized in their ef
forts to do a thing up right,
there is no stopping them. So,
best you not let her heart get
set on plans of a home and all
that goes with It If you have
thoughts of future bachelor days.
And If you doubt this reason
ing, ask the man who one owns.

Radcliffe Annual
Needs Veterans
A student policy committee at
Radcliffe college, Cambridge,
Mass., recently recommended in
a report that a competitive sys
tem of choosing yearbook ex
cutives be inaugurated so that
a micleous of eirls familiar with
the publication procedures of the
yearbook would continue irom
year to year.
Under this system the editor-in-chief
would be elected by the
staff of the book as early as
February of her Junior year.
The policy committee a'so rec
ommended that both the year
book staff and the student coun
cil work together in setting up
a constitution and a definite pat
tern of Drocedure for publica
tion of the book.
The proposed system of run
ning the yearbook comes as a
result of financial and admin
istrative difficulties which arose
during publication of last year's
book. Last fall the student coun
cil approved a recommendation
that the staff and coverage of
the yearbook be enlarged to In

Always Male Actors
' Kosmet Klub, one of the most
different college groups in the
nation, became popular duetto
its riotous comedy and slapstick
by male actors. ,
Featuring two different types
of shows each year, the organ
ization draws not only enthusi
asm from audiences but from
fraternities in the fall show
(which presents the male
Greek's Idea of humor) but also
captures the effort and energy
of any male, Greek or barb, who
wishes to enjoy himself in pony
choruses and other hilarious
routine in the spring show.
Variety seems to be prevalent
in every spring show that has
bedn produced which features
musical productions. Each year,

"There it is in black and white"

always apply to the New Mex

ing along the color line.
After St. Patrick's Day rolled
around and the Daily Lobo
turned green, students could be
found speculating in corners, al
leys, and occasionally classes on
the color of future editions. With
the approach of Easter, the odds
are running high for a purple or
yellow edition. '
The Lobo's Halloween edition
might be a luscious shade of
orange. Probably at Thanksgiv
ing, the Lobo will come out with
four pages of news, views, inter
views, sports, and Li'l Abner
printed in brown type. Students
might be seeing red during the
Christmas season as well as on
St. Valentine's Day.

the Klub offers a prize of $100
to the person who turned in a
script which is selected by judges
to be used for the forthcoming
show. '
, "Aksarben Nights," the first
original music comedy presented
by the Klub since 1942 was an
excellent example of talent.
The performance highlighted
such laugh - provoking scenes
such as a fraternity president
who actually loses his pants and
shirt in a fracas.
The women shortage in Kos
met Klub spring revues is again
being open to question. The
three year ban on women par-
ticipating in, these shows seems
to have been based on two ideas
as the 1948 Daily Nebraskan re
veals in the following extract:
"Somewhere along the line it
was decided that women should
not participate in the shows.
Reasons? We have heard of two
one was- on the moral basis;
someone thought it was immoral
to have both men and women
acting in the same show, to
gether but there seems to be no
protest to men and women stu
denth going together to dances,
parties, . . . and partic.pating
together in University Theater
and Experimental theater pro
ductions. ,
"The second protest was that
such a show would take too
much time from the heavy
schedules of the Greek coeds.
Some of the strongest demands
for a show with both men and
V women have come from sorority
' A plea for women has been
voiced by almost every member
of the Kosmet Klub in the past
The quality of KK revues, ma
lority opinion expresed, could
definitely be rais:d by using
women in a musical comedy
show. The members have rc
clared that hairy armed football
players in women's dress are
getting old. The revues need a
women's touch, many have said.
BOB SIM Is he supervising
the writing of the script?
Syracuse Greeks
To Publish Paper
Fraternities at Syracuse uni
versity, New York, will begin to
publish an all Greek newspaper
in the near future.
The Interfraternity Council at
that sc'iool also recently decided
to shorten the rush week period
to two weeks
At the same meeting, the cam
pus housing director told the rep-
sentatives -that one of the men's
dormitories would be open to
men wishing to sign contracts for
only one semester instead of the
usual entire school year. The di
rector made the statement in

members concerning members

Young Marriages Increase.
Says Home Ec
Young marriages have under
gone a striking increase in Ne
braska since 1940 reported Ken
neth Cannon of the University
Home Ec department staff Mon
day. .
Cannon said marriages of
teen-agers more than doubled in
the nine-year period. The rate is
slightly higher in the rural areas.
The study is based . on 13,764
marriages in 11 Nebraska coun
ties. Girls marrying at the age of 18
or under show a jump from 9.8
Dercent in 1940 to 21.1 percent

Holyoke Frosla
To T-"e "Basics"
Under the revised Mount
Holyoke . ccuege curriculum,
freshmen of the college will take
a variety of "fundamental"
These "hasic" courses are in
tended not enly to acquaint the
student with fundamental prin
ciples and techniques, but also to
make clear the relationship of
the given subject to related sub
iects and its significance for
general living.
In the first two years, students
to this Massachusetts school must
take a year of freshman English
.composition, a year of a foreign
language, and a 1-hour course in
hygiene; pass a proficiency test
'n speech; and elect six pther
year courses.
The restricted choices for the
six electives include two 1-year
courses in literature, music, or
art: a 1-year course in history,
ihilosophy, or religion; a 1-year
"ourse in the social sciences; and
two 1-year courses in mathema
tics, the biological sciences, or
the physical sciences.
After these courses are out of
the way, the student can then go
on to upperclass courses.

percent in 1948.
Boys Marry Younger
The increased rate of boys
marrying at younger ages was
more spectacular pointed out
Cannon. In 1940 half of one per
cent of the marriages studied
were boys 18 and under. In 1948
this rose to 2.3 percent. Boys 20
years old and under accounted
nr- 5 percent of the marriages in
f&To and 13.4 percent in 1948.
The actual number of youncer
boys marrving. however, was far
less than for the girls.
Cannon attributes the sharp
Increase partly to the prosoerity
of the state from 1940 to 1948.
"Young marriases pose a ser
'ous problem for Nebraska."
Cannon warned. "Too many brt"i
and girls of high school age look
at marriage through rose colored
glasses, or as a beautiful illu
sion which solves the problem of
security and affection," he con
tinued. ,
The professor stated that many
young people are wholly unore
Dared for marriage. He believes '
that high schools in the state
should offer more work to pre
pare them for married life with
"ourses in homemaking, mar
riace and family living, living
costs and perhaps sex education.
Study Planned '
Dr. Frank Sorenson, director
of the University's summer ses
sion said that public administra
tors are aware of the problem
raised by the study of Cannon
in 'the departments. He said a
preliminary investigation of mar
riage preparation of high school
students will , be made this sum
mer at a special conference on
the campus sponsored Jointly by
the University and the Nebraska
Council of Family Education.
The conference is to be di
rected by Frank Snyder, director
of guidance and public account
ing of the Lincoln public schools.
