NIlM Nm Editor,
To the Editor:
In the recent Ivy Day selection of new members for the Inno
cents societ, a preference was shown to the members of Kosmet
Klub. All three officers of the Kcsmet Klub were chosen as Inno
cents. The 'Innocents society obviously places considerable stock in
the worthiness and importance of being a Kosmet Klub member. It
is granted that other activities are necessary to become an Innocent,
but isn't too much importance being given to the members of Kosmet
Klub? t '.
Possibly in the past, the Kosmet Klub was an important campus
organization and its members deserved recognition by the "select"
campus honorary society. But, at the present time, the Kosmet Klub
is a defunct organiiation. Basically the Kosmet Klub has two func
tions: (1) To sponsor a fraternity talent revue, in-the fall, and (2)
to produce a spring revue later in the year. In the fall the Kosmet
Klub merely sponsors a show in which the fraternities assume the
entire burden of talent, preparation, and production, while the Kos
met Klub acts only in the capacity of a managing agent In the
spring revue, the Kosmet Klub supposedly shows its colors by as-'
suming all the responsibility of producing a spring talent review.
But this year "THE KOSMET KLUB DISCARDED ITS PLAN FOR
A SPRING REVUE, AND SUPPORTED THE A.E.R. HISTORICAL
The Kosmet Klub has cancelled its show, which from the very
beginning, it supported with a very doubtful intention of perform
ing. It has fallen back on the feeble crutch of the sudden coinci
dence with the theme of the A.E.R. Historical show a sudden co
incidence which had been given publication a week ago in this paper.

The result is that graduation with distinction means
greater achievement in the Arts and Sciences college. The
scholastic requirements no doubt vary little among the
colleges, but the extra Arts and Sciences requirements set
students in that college apart from the rest in the sense
that they have met greater demands.

Every year the Candidate Officers association sponsors the old
est and biggest social event of the year the Military Ball. It is not
only an important event on the campus, but receives city and state
recognition, for the University as well. It seems highly impossible
that the Military Ball has or ever will be cancelled because the lack
of organization, planning, or merely someone beating them to the
Housing committee, is so written
as to remove all objections to a
previous contract that was re
jected by the city council.
City housing has been a much
discussed question in University
and Lincoln circles and is a topic
of great concern to many mar
ried University students.
Specifically revised provisions
of the new plan include: A sur
vey of housing conditions and
ftnily characteristics will be
completed by the authority be
fore any construction will begin.
Any site or sites selected by the
authority will be subject to ap
proval by the city council.
Payment in lieu of taxes will
be distributed to the city, county,
state, school district and sanitary
district in the same proportion
as actual taxes.
Preference in selecting tenants
will be given to low-income fam
ilies who have established resi
dence in Lincoln.
The 800 temporary dwellings
at Huskerville, scheduled for re
moval within the next five years,
may be counted as meeting the
of the law.

DESTINATION OAK LAKE Four physical education majors load
canoes into the new, built to specifications canoe trailer. A new
course at Nebraska, canoeing will be open to non-majors, next
semester. Requirement for the course is the American Red Cross
swimmer's test. Oak lake is only a mile from Grant Memorial,
making it within easy access for regularly scheduled classes.

Fishermen placidly danRling
their hooks from the dock at Oak
creek Lake were given quite a
surprise-last week when 22 trim
physical education major coeds
quickly and efficiently launched
their canoes and began swiftly
paddling circles around them.
Recently graduating from the I
swimming pool, miss num ocnei
berg's canoeing class is now
meeting at Oakcreek Lake. The
girls kneeled on the side of the
pool to learn the different tech
niques of paddling. They also
practiced launching singly and
doubly, entering and leaving and
changing places in the canoes in
the indoor pool.
Complete with license and tail
light, the two illuminous canoes
were first launched by this class.
They were constructed especially
for the women's phyhical educa
tion department. When not in
use, these new aquatic additions
reside in the shower room. A
trailer which will carry four ca
noes has also been purchased.

In a new book of advice to the
"College Wife," Mrs. Rachelle
Marshall says that "essentially
your home should be a pleasant
background." Mrs. Marshall, her
self a college wife, wrote the
book as a guide to cooking and
household tasks which face any
wife whose husband is in school.
The greatest problem, accord
ing to Mrs. Marshall, is not al
ways cooking ability or house
keeping know-how. It is the job
of maintaining a home in one's
spare time and making it the
sort of place the student husband
and wife can look forward to
after a day's work.
The author learned to cope
with these problems the hard
way. After two years, during
which she has made a comfort

living, she decided to write the
