To Meet
Builders soon will put into ef
fect a new plan for attracting
students to the University.
The plan will involve the for
mation of 20 districts within the
state, each headed by a district
Under the district chairmen
will be several leaders and
workers in the larger towns and
cities of each district. Alumni
and students on vacation will be
asked to call on outstanding high
school students to try to interest
them in coming to the Univer
sity. ... Suggested by "Potsy'
The new method of contacting
students was suggested by Ath
letic Director George "Potsy"
Clark, who found "that the plan
worked very well in contacting
The new plan will implement
several other Builders activities
which aim to attract students to
the University campus.
These builders projects include
their work at the annual Nebras
ka High School Press associa
tion, band day and pep conven
In addition, Builders publishes
each summer a special edition of
The Daily Nebraskan. Issues of
the paper are sent to each pros
pective student.
First Glance, another Builders
publication, is sent directly to
Nebraska high schools to help
acquaint students at these schools
with the University campus and
its activities.
Pre-College Orientation.
Builders workers will contact
outstanding students from Ne
braska high schools. Through
these contacts, the organization
hopes to orient prospective stu
dents and answer questions
which they may have on any
phase of University life.
Civic organizations will be
contacted. Groups such as Cham
ber of Commerce, Rotary clubs,
Lions club, and Masonic lodges
will aid Builders in their work
by supplying them with names of
outstanding high school students
in their respective communities.
It Happened at NU
One hears often of the absent
minded professor, but seldom of
the absent-minded student.
Recently, a student walked into
an overcrowded classroom, sat
down and began to real his rela
tive physics industriously while
the instructor was going through
the preclass formalities.
The class began. The instruc
tor had given the next meeting's
assignment and was well into his
lecture. Suddenly the physics
enthusiast jumped up and started
for the door, muttering something
about getting into the wrong
The professor, unruffled by the
incident flippantly remarked,
"I've heard of absent-minded
professors, but never an absent
minded student. Maybe that fel
low is preparing to be one of
those intellectual people."

College to Aid.
Most colleges and depart
ments have notified College
Days planners of their intention
to conduct special events or pro
grams during the celebration.
Several periods will be set aside
during the three days to hold
only open houses of all depart
ments and college. Students,
faculty and other visitors will
have opportunity to visit events
of their choice.
The project, originally re
viewed this year by Builders,
under supervision of Gene Berg,
present chairman of College
Days, is aimed also at providing
an opportunity to students of
becoming acquaiunted with more
than just one or two phases of
University life.
The majority of campus activi

Dr. Sorenson will explain three
factors at the teachers' meeting.
These include the need of trained

To Try New
Point System
A new scale lor the evalua
tion of committee members and
chairmen was put into effect by
the Budget, Evaluation and Ori
entation committee on Union ac
tivities at a meeting Thursday
Under the new plan all mem
bers and chairmen of commit
tees will be evaluated each
month when they change com
mittees. These ratings which will
be determined on a four-point
basis, will be used to pick chair
men and leaders for commit
tees. The old three-point scale of
evaluation had no average rat
ing. Hence the new method, us
ing two for average and four and
zero as high and low.
Committee members will be
evaluated by chairmen and
sponsors on their ability, leader
ship, originality and interest.
Sponsors will rate chairmen on
the basis of a form questionnaire
filled out by committee members.
The Budget, Evaluation and
Orientation committee will sup
ervise these reports and prepare
an overall rating of the activities

Employment practice.
This was announced by Dr.
Leroy T. Laase president of the
organization. The FEPC is a

a law in 10 states and is being
considered in 14 others.
The public relations committee,
which is one of the working com
mittees set up by the executive
committee, is to send material
throughout the state to gain sup
port of the FEPC bill. As a
member of the public relations
committee, Miss Sorenson's re
sponsibility is, "Promoting sup

Rural Youth
Hear Speech
Br ISC Prof
Nebraska's rural youth mem
bers were advised last week to
face squarely a "desperate world
situation" and prepare for ad
justments. This was the message deliv
ered to 100 Nebraska Rural
Youth organization officers at
tending their annual Mid-Winter
institute at the University's
college of agriculture. It was
given by Wallace Ogg, associate
professor of economics and so
ciology at Iowa State college.
He said young men going into
the armed services should look
upon their service as an oppor
tunity. "Military service," he as
serted, "can make you a stronger
person or it can make you rot
morally it depends upon your
attitude. If that is the situation
facing you, you might as well
make the best of it."
For the young women, who
had planned to marry before the
world situation interfered, Ogg
had this message:
"This delay can bring oppor
tunities for you. You might look
upon it as two or three addi
tional years to become a better
homemaker. You might look upon
it as an opportunity to think more
objectively about the man you
have chosen as your future husband."
Young people, Ogg said, need
to develop a deep, personal,
Christian faith in order to coin
bat the forces of moral disin
tegration brought about by the
emergency. He advised them to
ponder the basis ideas of democ
racy in order to oe convinced
what we are fighting for.
Russell Merrigan, treasurer of
the organization, spoke on "Serv
icing Your Community." Rev.
Howard Christensen of Danne
brog was moderator for the dis
cussion that followed Merrigan's

2. Probably provide an official
Cornhusker handbook designed
to inform students of University
traditions, organizations, activi
ties and customs.
According to Dr. A. A. Hitch
cock, director of the junior di
vision, and Rob Raun, president
of the Student Council, one of
the principal points of discussion
is the proposed establishment o
an official freshman convocation
which would signal the state of
such opening events as testing,
advising, and registration.
Help Frosh Adjust
Back of the whole plan, Dr.
Hitchcock explained, is the de
sire to help new students ad
just quickly to University life
and provide more time for
faculty-student advisory ses
sions. "There is a sort of Cornhusker
family spirit already present on
our campuses," Dr. Hitchcock
said. "We hope to develop it in
to a real force for the benefit of
both faculty and students."
Present thinking is that the
official freshman convocation, at
which attendance of new stud
ents would be required, would
be followed in quick succession
1. A Cornhusker Night, where
new students would be given a
chance to learn University songs,
yells, meet student leaders, and
would be told something of
Cornhusker tradition.
Church Open House
2. A church open house, con
ducted on a denominational
3. An activities night, where
new students would be told
about, and given an opportunity
to 'make contact with rstuderrt
organizations and activities in
which they are interested.
4. The Chancellor's Reception
where new students would have
an oportunity to meet the Chan
cellor and other faculty mem
bers. Under consideration is a
Freshman Hop to follow the re
ception. Impetus for the planning came
from the Junior Division which,
under the University's adminis
trative system, has the respon
sibility for programing the
orientation of new students.
Since much of the orientation
planning involves items in which
various students group and up
perclassmen have expressed an
interest, it was decided to per
fect the proposed revamping of
the freshman orientation with
the help of Raun and other stud
ent representatives.
