Dick Hungerford, Lowell Nielson, and Harold Slagel put in that
idle hour at their house. Trophies on the piano prove the Co-op
prowess in intramural athletics. The club is unique in that most
members do not reside in the house. Also, work details here are
not arbitrarily assigned.

would preclude the possibility of
vuccessful investigation should
not be selected by the applicant.
Transportation to and from
the receiving country is paid by
the United States Government.
The receiving government pays
tuition and a monthly mainten
ance allowance. In some cases a
mall sum is allotted for books
and incidental expenses. It may
be necessary for the student to
supplement his maintenance al

meet the cost of living expenses.

prepare panels made up of the
names of five students for pres

Several months are required
before governments receiving
panels are able to make selec

Friendship and cooperation.
Those are the reasons that have
led scores of University men to
form the incorporated co-operative
houses. . . The Brown Pal
ace, Norris House, Pioneer House,
and the Cornhusker Co-op club.
To the independent students
making up their memberships,
the houses extend many advant
ages, among which are oppor
tunities for inexpensive living;
channels for individual talents;
opportunities for leadership and
participation in activities; and the
"feeling of belonging to a group."
The houses have reacted to
common problems in individual
M e m b e rs h ip qualifications
vary. While some houses ad
here to an unwritten "whites
only" rule, others recognize no
barriers of race, color, or reli
gion. To enter certain houses,
one must be recommened by an
active and approved by all. Other
houses simply require applicant
to join a waiting list, subject to
approval by three-fourths of
All four houses have a history
of being on the move at one time
or another. House hunts occur
every few years. The Brown Pal
ace group was once chased out
of a house one jump ahead of a
Sidles company wrecking crew.
A large auto salesroom and ga
rage now occupies the spot. The
group is now settled in a three
story brick building at 12th and

The Norris. Cornhusker. and
Pioneer groups, on the other
hand, are looking once more for
new houses. Their present sites,
in frame houses on S and U
streets, are scheduled to be
razed sometime in the future to
make way for University expan
sion. The houses have various opin
ions as to affiliation with national
co-op organizations. Norris House
is a member of the Central
League of Campus Co-ops and
the North American Student Co
Op League. Pioneer House has
allowed its membership in the
national group to lapse, since a
majority of members felt there
was little advantage in belong
ing. The Brown Palace and the
Cornhusker club have always
been strictly local in nature.
Most of the houses assign de
finite work details to members.
These detai's may include serv
ing meals, kitchen police, house
clean-up, and laundry details.
Each member is put on three de
tails a week. The Cornhusker
Co-op, however, is unique in hav
ing no assigned details. Mem
bers there volunteer for whatever
jobs they like best. The situa
tion is satisfactory and no dif
ficulty is reported in filling de
tails. Intramural athletics are a j
major activity tor the co-ops,
with every house taking pride in
turning out winning teams.
Norris House has taken a volley
ball championship in the inde-i
pendent league, while the Brown

had Senator George Norris,
famous liberal, in mind when
they named their group.

organization it is the spirit of

members, who are proud of their

Connections with the Consum

Kansas City are used to good
advantage by the house. It is
able to purchase gas, utilities
such as a deep-freeze, and food
at cut rate ad whole sale prices
due to the co-op system.
A midnight coffee hour is a
tradition with a house, with
plenty of opportunities for merry
making and bull sessions. In fact,
early sleepers find their job dif

vided many laughs. Old and un

served on tapes for posterity.

a wide range of representation
from various colleges on the

so-called "workfest," a week before the opening of school. At
that time house members show up to paint, clean, and generally
