Your candid reporter had quite.
an experience today. The basket
ball tournament has brought both
eager fans and happy high school
students to Lincoln for a few
days of tension as their favorite
team fights it out on the floor.
Everywhere you go there are
high school fans giving their all
for their team, usually in a verbal
manner: In the coliseum they
present a motley scene of red,
green, gold, purple and every
other color in and out of the;, rain

The question asked most of the
young enthusiasts was, do you
think you're going to win? From
the lowiest of the class D schools
to the all-powerful A teams, the
answer was always an emphatic
yes! Such spirit is encouraging
to any team. Let's hope some of
it stays on- campus.
The union has become the
hangout for a great many of the
between-games crowd. There are
dances, meetings and just plain
relaxation for all those who want
to take advantage of the situation.
Builders has done a terrific job
in keeping these prospective Uni
versity students on campus. They
have offered tours, get-togethers
and other enticements that help
"sell" the U.
The dance Thursday afternoon
was just one of many entertain
ments offered. Music was by rec
ord only, but there was a large
crowd. Tassels and Builders'
workers encouraged everyone to
dance and gave cokes away to
those who wouldn't.
Coach Glassford was on hand to
welcome everyone at a short pro
gram which was emceed by Hank
Cech, He introduced several of
Nebraska's N Club members who
represented various sports and
then spent twice as much time
introducing the Calendar girls.
Numbers were drawn and sev
eral lucky high school boys
danced with Nebraska queens.
On the dance floor conversation
was about home towns, impulsive
bets about the outcome of the
games, and the inevitable ques

will abolish the all-campus vote
and allow each organization on

from "I Doubt It" to bridge, in
which the members of the band
were interrupted by clarinets and
suitcases unexpectedly falling
from the luggage rack. The clari
nets and suitcases were mixed
with flying cards as the bus
rounded a sharp curve.
Absent Minded Players
Saxophone players seem to be
as absent minded as professors.
The band members were as
sembled at the Sidney auditorium
when an alto saxophone player
discovered he had left his shoes
at the home of the host. He
made a speedy trip to the house
to retrieve his shoes, returning
to the auditorium a few minutes
after the concert was scheduled
to begin. The late arrival of
Prof. Don Lentz allowed the
player to calmly return to his
front row seat.
Lodgings, meal and transporta
tion from the depot for the band
members was provided by the
Rotarians of Kearney, Curtis,
North Platte and Sidney.
Upon arrival in North Platte,
the band assembled in the town
square to pHy various Nebraska
