j f o i U
Once uponeth a time there liveth a courageous knight
who fought many gallant battles over the world. But after
several years he tireth of
cideth to seeketh new adventures. So he mounteth his white
charger and begineth his quest.
He wandereth over many leagues and seeth great
wonders, until he cometh to the fuedal castle, the Univer
pitas Nebraskensis in the hamlet Lincolnford, Lancaster
hire. Here is real adventure he sayeth to himself and he
enrolleth in the institution. He standeth several days in
line. and meeteth many other knights and their ladies; he
buyeth his parchments until his schillings are almost
goneth; and finally he becometh a subject of the great
lord, Sir Gus.
For many days he is dazeth at the massive buildings,
the tall towers and the endless sidewalks. He longeth for
his home and wisheth he were back. But he remembereth
vows and knoweth he will sticketh it out.
One day during one of his many lonely walks through
the courtyard he spieth a fair damsel who leaneth out the
window and blinketh her eyelashes at him. He calleth to
her but she answereth not and di'sappeareth. The young
knight is besideth himself and calleth again. She faileth to
respond but throweth out a rose with a note. He eagerly
picketh it up and findeth the letters "H. H." He knoweth
these are her initials and he beginneth a great search to
findeth who she is.
For many months he searcheth until fall turneth into
winter. Still he faileth to learneth her name. Our hero be
ginet to dispaireth and thinketh the world cometh to an
end. But one day he heareth of a book nameth the Student
Directory which haveth all the names and dwellings of the
ubjects. He taketh hope and starteth a search for this
valuable parchment. But he faileth to find it either. Every
one sayeth to him that it will be outeth in a few weeks,
but it never cometh forth.
So the knight faileth into deep melancholy and waileth
at his misfortune. He cannot eateth, sleepeth or studieth.
Everyone thinketh he is daft and avoideth him. But then
he taketh a hold of himself and decideth to looketh some
more. And when he was last heareth of, he was murmur
ing, "Where is the Student Directory?"

Most football fans left Ne
braska's high-scoring games this
fall feeling that they had seen
quite a strenuous contest, but
there was not always enough ac
tion to suit one spectator.
Miss Joan Park, instructor in
physical education at the Uni
versity, prefers the game as
played in her native Australia,
where, she says, it is much faster
than the American version.
This is true, Miss Park ex
plained, partly because there are
no time outs in any of the sev
eral varieties of Australian foot
ball. "Once play starts there are no
substitutions except in case of
injury, and even rest periods be
tween quarters and halves are
short," she said.
It is mass tackling, however,
that is responsible for Miss
Park'i chief complaint about the
slowness of the American game.
"Here it's just flop every
body's on the ground. Before you
can even see where the ball is,
play has stopped," she remarked.
In the Australian game, as in
American basketball, the ball
remains in play until a score is
made or a rule is broken.
Although passing is not com
' pletely overlooked, forward
passes are not permitted in the
most popular version," Austra
lian Rules," and these won ap
proval from Miss Park. She was
surprised tod at the amount of
yardage picked up by running.
At home it's essentially a
kicking game," she said, "because
If you run with the ball you
must bounce it every ten yards."
Bouncing the Australian football,
which is shaped just like the
American one, is a difficult trick,
In kicking, she believes the
Australians are far ahead of
Americans. Because points are
made chiefly by field goals, the
players need what would seem
to xjs phenomenal power.
"A kicker who is considered
quite good here would probably
be average in Australia at least
that's what the statistics show,"
Winners Not Emphasized
Miss Park said that many of
the university men in her coun
try play football. There the num
ber one team is emphasized little
more than the many other teams
entered In competition.

The program featured all angles

For Gentlemen at MB Ball
By Sue Gorton
The Daily Nebraskan published
a story on the girls' etiquette and
procedure in getting a date for
the "Surprise Fackage" Mortar
Board Ball, Friday, Dec. 8.
Now, the Rag feels that the
men of the campus should be
given suggestions as to their cor
rect and gentlemanly behavior
on the eve of "Now who wears
the pants in the family?" occa
sion. The Rag suggests:
1. Don't worry too long over
which suit to wear. Just dress
neatly and as different as you
can from everyone else. Your
date will love having you set
apart from the other boys with
your bright red suspenders and
matching plaid tie and socks.
I. If you feel your garter slip
ping, excuse yourself as incon
spicuously as possible but be
sure you ask all the other men
in your party to accompany you.
Also keep watching your droop
ing socks and climbing vests,
don't be constantly pulling them
down all evening.
3. Don't keep your escort wait
ing too long, never play more
than three hands of bridge while
she is waiting.
4. Don't give your date too
many things to carry. No more
than your bill fold, comb; ciga
rets, lighter, key chain and shav
ing kit. It might be a good idea
to take along something to pro
tect yourself from these man
hungry females. Golf clubs would
serve the purpose.
5. Let your date do those little
things for you. Don't put on your
own coat or open the doors. The
girls like the helpless type.
6. Make your lady escort feel
that you are interested in her.
Let her talk about herself. Be
handsome but dumb.
7. Don't be catty about talk
ing about the other girls you've
dated. Girls never do that.
8. Above all, you've been

PiBanads are his favorite kind of
music. "The kind that people
like to dance to," he remarked,
his white teeth accentuating his
"million dollar smile."
"Styling is all-important,"
claimed Carle, A distinctive
piano style is, in his opinion,
what "makes" a band.
In speaking of the new tune,
"Powder Blue," his latest record
ing, he was very pleased that it
had gone over so well at the
dance. "It is one of my favor
ites," he added.
No Carle Records
Carle's dining at Arbor Manor
prior to the dance proved to be
(slightly embarrassing for the
proprietor. When a photographer
asked to tiike his picture stand
ing beside the juke box, the band
leader got up and went over to
look at the selections on the ma
chine. Suddenly he whirled
around, humorously exploding,

Nevertheless, he reached In his
pocket for a nickel and chose a
Sammy Kaye number instead.
Thus it was that Frankie Carle
had his picture taken, while
standing by the juke box.
When asked about his singer,
Joan House, he commented that
Hhe was his 18-year,-old niece
from Boston. She quit high
school to join his band in Cali

Carle's troupe for only one week.
,The pianist remarked that he
was very impressed, not only
with the pre-dance presentation
ceremony, but the whole Mili
tary Ball as well.
After his engagement here In
Nebraska, Carle goes to the Stat
ler hotel in New York, where he
will play a three-week run.
One possible way has been
found for students and advisors
to save time during registration.
That is the planning of a four
year schedule all at one time.
If students will arrange the
schedule they intend to follow
during their college days and go
over it with their advisor, and
have initials of approval on it,
they will have few worried hours
spent Jn future registrations.
