IN PEACE OR WAR the Red
Whether it's Korea or kids, the
international mercy organization
plays a big part.
On the Nebraska campus, the
Red Cross college unit gives stu
dents an opportunity to take part
in the program.
The college unit serves the Ne
braska campus and the sur
rounding community. Veterans,
mental patients, orphans, the aged,
Hood victims, penitentiary inmates
all are recipients of the college
youth's diversified program.
ANY STUDENT MAY assist in
the many Red Cross projects. Vol
unteers drive the Lancaster county
chapter station wagon as members
of the active motor corps, trans
porting entertainers, assisting in
floods, carrying crippled children
to special schools.
They sing, dance, clown for pa
tients and inmates of the many
state and local institutions in Lin
coln. Among their projects in the
veterans hospital, the state mental
hospital, several orphanages, the
men's reformatory, the state peni
tentiary, and others, are radio pro
grams, auditorium shows, dances,
card games, ward parties, caroling
any type of entertainment the
young people can devise to help
patients pass lonely hours.
THE PROJECTS CALL FOR all
types of talents from entertain
ers to artists to gymnasts to just
plain ycu with a friendly smile
and a word of greeting. The co
operation of everybody willing to
share whatever talents they pos
sess results in a lift for the in
mates and an inner glow for
these taking part.
Parties are given for homeless
children, with Hallowe'en, Christ
mas and Easter themes. Caroling
trips are made to all local homes.
Dances are held at the state men
THESE PROJECTS ARE but a
part of the total Red Cross pro
gram on the campus. They are a
sample of what can be done to
serve the community.
The college unit also sponsors
swimming, life-saving and swim
ming instructor classes. First aid
course? are also sponsored by the
student group. The college stu
dents have recently initiated a
program to assist high school stu
dents of Lincoln in forking Red
Cross groups in local junior and
senior high schools.
THE RED CROSS PROGRAM is
something you'll want to be a part
of. It's the one group that goes
into the community in war or
peace to serv? in local institu
tions, during disasters, wherever a
real need exists. ' There is no
"busy work" in Red Cross, for
every phase of activity is pointed
to the objective of serving others.

Black Masks, Baldrics
To the students on campus who work in activities, two organi
zations sit atop the ladder of success at NU. They are the senior
honoraries, Innocents for the men and Mortar Board for the women.
Sixteen outstanding junior wo
men were masked at the close of
Ivy Day festivities last spring, and
thev will be back this fall to carry
on with the three phases of cam
pus life which brought them the
honor of Mortar Board leader
ship, scholarship, and service.
In addition to holding top or-
fices in campus womens organi
zations, these sixteen senior wo
men will be on hand to help with
other service projects on campus
throughout the year.
You 11 see the black-robed Mor
tar Boards taking part in the
Homecoming ceremonies, serving
at the Chancellors reception, and
at the reception for incoming wo
men held by the Dean of Women.
The biggest activity for Mortar
Board in the fall is the Mortar
Board ball the turn-about dance.
Usually held in the coliseum, the
dance follows on the heels of
the Military ball and gives coeds
the duties of an escort. For once

stalk about through the crowd
of students, looking for the junior
women who will wear the coveted
black mask and the Mortar Board
pin for the following year.
Innocents too have a part in
Ivy day, when they choose the
thirteen selected activity men by
tackling them, and presenting the
baldric, emblem of the mystic
Throughout the year, the main
purpose of Mortar Board is serv
