presented by the cast, members
of the all-freshman acting group
Inaugurated just this year. Cur
tain time is scheduled for 3-fi

the Proctor family. Mr. and Mrs.
Proctor, together with their
healthy, bumptious youngstor,
Loe, are members of a very
pleasant, sensible, agreeable -and
happy family, until the arrival

AUF Pledge
Ends Today
Only one more day remains of
the Ali University Fund pledge
solicitation, this spring.
Jo Lisher, AUF director, re
minded that the pledging will end
when registration is completed
today. A booth has been
occupied during this week in the
Military and Naval Science
building during registration
Students urged students to
make their pledges now. The
new pledge system was inaugu
rated this year to enable stu
dents to se t aside a certain
amount for AUF which is not due
until Feb. 25, 1951.
The Tiew system is part of a
new program recently set up by
the charity group to insure a
more effective drive for next
year. Also students will not be
hurried into making contribu
tions. AUF donations are spent for
such organizations as Commu
nity Chest, World Student Service
fund, 'Red Cross, Infantile Paral
ysis fund and other agencies
which provide welfare for the
AUF isthe only campus group
of its kind which -was organized
to protect students from constant
solicitation by all of the men
tioned agencies.
Miss Lisher asked all students
as they sign pledges to keep in
mind that their one donation next
year will make up for five or six
contributions which they would
otherwise make during the year.
Final Courtesy
Slogan Annouccd
"Y" for year In and year out
courtesy. That is the final slogan
for the 1950 Courtesy campaign
sponsored by the Lincoln Court
esy committee.
Beginning more than two
months ago, the campaign has
taken each letter of the word
courtesy and publicized a sloRan
beginning with that letter.
University students huve been
aiding in the campaign on
campus. Mary Hubka of the
YWCA has been in charge of
lew Yell
Frank Piccolo will continue to
serve as Yell King for the re
organized Corrihuskers' 1950-51
veil squad. Brick Paulson will be
first alternate Yell King.
This -was announced by the
yell Bquud committee in charge
of choosing the new Yell King
and the yell squad for .next year.
Tryouts for the positions were
held last night at the Coliseum.
Piccolo, who was Yell King
last year, has been a member of
the yell squad for the past three
years. He has been chairman of
the rally committee and is a
momber of Alpha Tau Omega.
Paulson who has served on the
squad for three years is a mem
ber of Phi Kappa Psi. In his ad
vanced capacity, he 'will remain
an iicttvc member of the eight
man squad,
The remainder of the squad
will be chosen following tryouts
Thursday evening beginning at 7
p.m. This will be comprised of
six members.
According to John Connelly,
member of the pep -squad com
mittee, Piccolo was chosen for
his experience of past years, and
his ability, which he demon
strated this year as Yell King
and in the tryouts.
Several training periods for
the new squad will be held be
fore school is out this spring.
Next fall, the squad will un
dergo active training under the
Bupurviiiion of Don Kline, spoech

The theme of the show, by
coincidence, was funriampntallv
the same as the one being plan-
nea oy fLosmet Klub. It features
highlights of the past half cen
Due to this similarity, Kosmet
Klub feels that duplication of the
theme and the Droximitv of re
duction dates might have proven
-unaesraDxy prepititious" to au
diences. Supports AGR Show
Thus, Kosmet Klub has given
its full support to a repeat per
formance of 'l Can Almost Hpht
It Now'.' to be held Friday night,
wiay i-, m the Union ballroom.
It will be free to the public and
will begin at 8:30 n. m.
This action was decided upon
following a conference with
members of Alpha Epsilon Rho,
radio honorary, and members of
Kosmet Klub, according to Leon
Pfeiffer, KK president.
With this discontinuance of
work on the spring revue, KK
will devote its efforts to the
"realization of bettering the fall
and spring productions of the
coming school year."
More than the similarity of the
themes and the proximity of show
dates, the fact that the AER show
does bave coeds in the cast led
to this decision.
Coeds Needed
"'While they (AER) can pro
duce an excellent show with
coeds, we have to go ahead with
slapstick chorus lines," said
Already ground work is being
laid for the acceptance of coed
participation in the 1951 spring
revue. Next fall the Klub will
continue plans for having the
coed participation.
"The AER show is a good ex
ample of what can be done with
a tolerant cast of both male and
female actors," said Pfeiffer.
A review of the preparation for
the 1950 revue shows that the
announcement for plans for the
canceled show was made April 6.
At that time, however, no date
had been set for the revue, which
was to be called "Half-Century
All male campus groups and
individuals were invited to offer
their talents at tryouts which
were hold during the latter part
of April. If the show had been
presented as scheduled, it would
have been ready for production
May 17 in the city Union and
May 19 at Ag Union.
Now, with revue plans dropped,
Kosmet Klub is urging all stu
dents to attend the AER show
in the Union Friday night
Shot in Arm
Reviewed as "a shot In the
arm to weary campusites," fol
lowing its first performance Sun
day night, the musical revue con
tains the highlights of the past
50 years of radio. It was also
reviewed as "humorously inter
preted by the best collection of
campus talent to tread the boardt
in many a . dreary day."
Written and produced by Gay
lord Marr, the two-hour show
includes numerous comment on
the fads of yesterday, us well as
