Student Housekeeper's Life
A Composite of Beans, Babies
By Phyllis Cbubbuck
Flying beans, child care,
housekeeping, cooking, and par
ties all fit together to make up
the life of the students in the
home management houses.
The girls who are majoring in.
home economics are required to
live three and one half weeks
at each of the home manage
ment houses, 1600 R street and
3220 Starr . street. During this
period, the duties of manager,
cook, assistant cook, housekeep
er, assistant housekeeper, and
child director are rotated among
the five to six girls living there,
giving them the opportunity for
each position at both houses.
The cook and assistant cook do
not claim to have flying saucers
in the kitchen as they prepare
the meals, but flying beans and
split pea soup have been seen
showering the room. This
strange flying" movement of
beans and peas came when the
lid was removed from a pressure
cooker from which all of the
pressure had not escaped. Such
occurrences are encountered by
the girls as they practice their
knowledge of cooking in prepar
ing the daily meals. These
phenomenas are classified as
rare in the usually smooth oper

The University swimming pool

the marine air detachment at the
naval air station.
Costello, it is believed, slipped
and fell, striking his head on the
edge of the pool. Lifeguards Lt.
Roger Stewart and Sgt. Harlan J.
Hall, both marines, reported
there was no disturbance or
struggle in the water.
The naval station's medical of

the conversation, soon dis
covered that it was at the other
home management house that
she was expected.
The first attempt at home
management practice was made
over 45 years ago, using a few
rooms of the home economics
building which was at that time
also a dormitory.
1915 First Year
Miss Maude Wilson obtained
the first practice cottage in 1915.
At this house, located near the
Ag campus, the girls cleaned the
houses, painted the woodwork
and linoleum, made cheese cloth
glass curtains, and purchased
kitchen utensils to set up house
keeping. Other houses used for home
management laboratories were
located at 2985 Holdrege and
1234 R street, the latter, a Uni
versity owned house, was used
from 1920 to 1936. In order to
improve the appearance of the
campus in 1934 the 12th and R
street house was torn down
along with several other houses.
At this time the present home
management house at 1600 R
was established, a residence
which also belonged to the Uni
versity. The home at 3220 Starr
was opened in 1938, being pur
chased by the University in 1946.
In these home management
houses the girls are given ex
perience in planning, controlling,
and evaluating work. The house
hold duties are analyzed, consid
ering ways to make work fun.

"What's it like to be kissed
by Bobby Reynolds?"
A harried Dorothy Elliott will
swear that she has been asked
that question a thousand times
since Friday night. In despera
tion she has produced a stock
answer that seems to cover the
question quite well.
She says, "Oooooooh . . .
The torrid osculation in ques
tion occurred at the climax of
the Kosmet Klub show. Dorothy
and Bobby stepped out to be
named Nebraska Sweetheart and
Prince Kosmet, respectively.
Kosmet Klub President Leon
Pfeiffer handed Dorothy a bou
quet of roses and kissed her on
the lips. It was a mere peck.
Reynolds then went into action,
moving in close and putting his
arm around Dorothy.
The calm but thorough buss
that Bobby bestowed on the
blushing Nebraska Sweetheart
was not timed with a stop-watch,
unfortunately. Conflicting re
ports from witnesses indicate
that it might have lasted from
30 to 45 seconds.
Reynolds then coolly disen
gaged himself and stepped back.
Dorothy, somewhat dazed, looked
up at him and gasped, "Were
you supposed to do that?"
"Yes," returned Bobby.
In the meanwhile, Reynolds'
steady gal, Sandra Walt, was
herself exhibiting varied shades
of the spectrum. She was not at
all sure that she approved of
what had happened. Sandra has
tened backstage with other
members of the audience. The
rest of- the backstage visitors
congratulated the Prince and the
Sweetheart. What Sandra had to
say was not a matter of public
Observers did note that a close
reconciliation between Bobby
and Sandra was somewhat ham
pered by the presence of one
William Glassford. The latter,
with a paternalistic air, was on
the scene to see that Bobby has
tened home to the sleep that a
growing boy needs.
Tuesday, November 21, 1950
This campus United Nations
program was termed a vital step
in educating the public about
world affairs, Monday, by a
Frenchman touring American
schools and colleges.
The visitor, Raymond Brugere,
said that students occupied with
United Nations teachings, later
will form a more enlightened
body capable of "making their
voices heard." Brugere, sponsor
ed by the Carnegie Endowment
for Peace fund is visiting various
institutions to examine possible
methods of teaching student
Comparing teachings of the
U. N. in this country to French
methods, Brugere said education
along this line in France started
about a year ago in civics class
es. About one lecture a month
is devoted to the organization, he
"It's up to the iniatitive of the
instructor in most cases," he
Another method used In
France, he explained, was for
mation of clubs, generally called
Friends of UNESCO or Interna
tional clubs. When he left France
there were about 40 of them.
One idea he hopes to promote
further in France, he says, is
moving pictures. He believes they
help make the people think about
problems facing the world.
Another step, he pointed out,
was to get more actual teach
ings of the U.N. in civics and
modern history courses and en
courage the number of clubs.
Commenting o n NUCWA's
spring conferences, the French
man said the very fact that the
student: tike time for the project
is bound to make a difference in
their thinking and interest in
the United Nations.
"It's surprising," he said, "to
notice the difference in interest
now of international affairs than
in the twenties and thirties."
At that time, he said, students
had not the slightest interest in
"Americans kept clear of In
ternational relations," he pointed
out, "and were isolationists."
He attributed the change to
World War II and the "painful
results" and to what students
and other groups are doing to
increase public interest.
The great danger today, he
maintains, is the tendency to
leave matters of politics and in
ternational policy in the hands
of "a few so-called specialists."
He hopes the time will come,
to a great degree the result of
young citizens' interest, when the
public will make its opinion
influence the state department.
Brugere met with various
campus groups, students and fac
ulty members to examine ways
the University teaches students
about the United Nations.
