I don't think that a.iy other
house on "campus has as much
That's a typical comment from
one of the girls who live at In
ternational House. Fronting on
'R" Street, "I-House" is the
place where girls from many na
tions meet and live for a year.
Similar houses are present on
many campuses across the na
tion. Nebraska's was founded in
The house roster includes two
Chinese, two Turks, two Jap
anese, five American Negroes, 16
American whites, one Nisei, and
one girl each from Sweden, Bol
ivia, France, and India. Two Ger
mans, new arrivals on the cam
pus, are also in the house.
Benevolent "mother" of T
House is Mrs. Edith Bradley, who
is -described by her charges as
"wonderful." Recently elected
officers include house president
Barbara Waldron, vice-president
Elizabeth Johnson, secretary
Barbara Malm, and treasurer
Possibly the most serious meet
of the year is the first house
get-together, when the newcom
ers line up to be introduced. At
that time, they are supposed to
be educated in all the finer points
of life for the year to come. Ac
tually, the girls will learn to
know the house and their new
friends by "just living there."
The foreign students plunge
Into the process of learning
American slang and a good many
other things with vigor. It takes
a while longer for the local ladies
to learn something about other
countries, but they learn.
On party occasions, or at other
special times, they may get a
chance to see a friend strut her
stuff in the clothing of her na
tive land. In the past it might
have been the Chinese girls in
their boxy, slit-sided dresses. It
might have been Sonia Sookdeo
in yards and yards of Hindu sari.
But has anyone seen a Hawaiian
in grass skirt and lei yet?.

Boom! Boom! Boom! SPLASH!
Wednesday's afternoon shower
f rain didn't stop fcotball scrim
mage, but it did dampen the en
thusiasm of some hundred mu
sicians in the University Band.
Said band was drilling before the
Stadium, Then the rain struck
without warning . . .
Practice ended in musical dis
card. In haste, the band members
plunged from the Mall toward
the Stadium, borne raced to put
instruments in nearby cars; some
attempted to rt the sundry
horns away in cases. The band
members were in too much of
a hurry to even close the cases
in some instances. At any rate, a
good many instruments were
pretty muddy by evening.
The thundering herd that
rushed the stadium door was
brought up short. Locked!
xx33""zz? locked! A hundred
trousers lost their creases. In
spite of the wet, warm feelings
prevailed among the band mem
bers huddled within the doorway.
In fact, it was so warm that the
group was soon steaming.
Confusion ensued when Bob
!hab, who was all wrapped up
in his bass horn, tried to imitate
several trombonists who took
their instruments into the huddle
'with them. iWth Chab, it is
"love me, love my horn." They
both took up plenty room. So in
the end, Bob good-naturedly un
screwed his horn and walked off
in the rain, using the bell-mouth
of it for a hat.
The rain let up, and spirits
rose. As the braver spirits ven
tured out Into the open, the sec
ond installment of the shower
caught them squarely. The band
members retired again to the
doubtful shelter of the Stadium
doorway. Leader Don Lentz be
gan "wonda'ng if he had left his
high-school entry papers for
band day out in the rain some
where. In the end, a flying squad made
dash for the parked cars, and
returned on wheels to pick up
the soaked musicians and take
them home. Traffic officers
never intended the concrete ap
proach to the stadium to serve
as a highway. In case they ask,
those tire prints in front of the
building are just hallucinations.
... Which just goes to prove,
Anything is liable to happen
when it rains.
