That has been the basis of the

was formed in 1941. At that time,
it was called the Student Foun

Since its founding. Builders
has continued to carry out its
Aid to Veterans.
The first Important campus
project of the Student Founda
tion was to establish a War
Scholarishp Fund. It was to aid
veterans in completing their edu
cation at the University. They
completed their mission when
they raised $2,500 for the cause.
The first step toward the stim
ulation of interest in the Univer
sity came in 1942. It was in the
form of an essay contest for Ne
braska high schools. A prize of
$25 was awarded for each win
The Public Relations depart
ment, organized in 1943, was de
signed to arouse still more inter-
!est in the University. Each of 93
i counties was assigned a reporter
j whose duty it was to compile im
portant news aoout university
student from the specific area.
News items resulting from this
project were then sent to county
newspapers by the Foundation.
Members Became Lobbyists.
In 1945, the members of the
Foundation played lobbyist in the
State Capitol. It was to encour
age the members of the Legisla
ture to appropriate more money
for the University.
The group went further. They
started sponsoring programs and
dances for high school students
at the basketball tournaments.
Although the Student Founda
tion was still a "baby organiza
tion" in 1945, it was ' as well
known at the University as many
of the older groups. What was
the formula for this rapid trans
formation? It had excellent sup
port and stood for the building of
a greater University.
November, 1946, marked the
sale of the first Student Direc
tories. All board members sold
advertising and worked at boost
ing the publicity.
The annual Beauty Queen Tea
Dance was sponsored by the Stu
dent Foundation, In addition, it
sponsored a dance for the Ne
braska Music Educators Clinic.
Activities Over Hide Area.
By 1947, Student Foundation
projects and activities covered a
wide area. Dances in the Union,
tours for organized high school
sneak day groups, a bulletin sent
out containing news about extra
curricular activities, scholastic
requirements, athletics, Greek ac
tivities, barb activities and Uni
versity life the Foundation had
a part in all these things.
Finding the need for a consti
tution, the Foundation, in 1949,
appointed a committee to frame
and plan for it. A required aver
age of 5.5 was set for board
members. Board members were
to serve a term of 13 months
even though elections took place
every 12 months.
The words "Student Founda
tion" became unmentionable
when a new name, "Builders"
was chosen to replace the former
label. This came as the result of
a campus contest, complete with
a $10 prize.
Indeed, the motto of Builders,
to build a greater University,"
has served them well and will
continue to do so in the future.
