Mills, whose orchestra can be seen in the background, at the Ag
Union's Sno-ball which was Friday night in the College Activities

Politics took a holiday during
. World war II.
As the men crowded back to
campus in 1946, faction members
started the wnispers going, "If
your sorority doesn"t vote the
faction's way, your house won't
get any queens elected . . ."
Mortar Boards and sorority pres
idents came out fighting, de
nouncing block voting right and
left. For a while it even looked
as if there was a fight on be
tween a Greek women's faction
and a Greek men's faction.
GI veterans returned to the
campus threatening fire and
slaughter to factions and politi
cians, but they failed to show at
Audible sniping indicated to
observers that all was not well
" between Greeks. Finally Beta
Theta Pi withdrew from the
faction, calling for a political
union between all barbs and
Greeks of good will. (The with
drawal from the faction was
Beta Theta Pi ran a candidate
tor junior class president in op
position to a faction candidate.
Rebel Greeks, enthusiastic barbs
and surly vets joined to defeat
the faction. The faction retal
iated by contesting the election
through the Student Council.
The Faculty Senate finally
ruied that the election was valid.
The next act came in Novem
ber of 1946. when Panhellenis
started swinging wildly in the
direction of the faction and an
nounced that no candidates from
sororities would be available
for the Kossnet Klub's Nebraska
Sweetheart. Panhell indicated
that it was doing this to fight
"influence" and "block voting."
The Klub loudly protested that
it was neutral and above poli
tics. Secret Interviews
Kosroet Klub workers secret sy
interviewed sorority girls as to
whether they were wiUirtg to be
candidates anyhow. Girls replied
"Yes. if . . ."" If the Klub could
promise to protect them from the
wrath and vengeance of Panhell.
The Kosmet Klub could not make
any such guarantees, so the deal
was off. A member of the Un
affiliated Students' association
was named Nebraska Sweetheart.
