Where The Ball Landed
A good businessman generally rebels against
1 unreasonable prices if he can buy the product else
where. A good merchant also will try to get the
best bargain possible for any project he starts.
Most businessmen seek the best solution when
profit on a project is utmost in their minds. This
year All University Fund took the business world
outlook and sought new eites for dances other
shan campus floors. The selected site, King's
ballroom, fitted in the bounds of the organiza
After clearing proper faculty and adminis
trative channels, ALT and faculty representa
tives investigated and visited King's ballroom.
Last month, Sarah Fulton, AUF president, pre
sented to Student Council members the proposal
of AUF for the off campus University sponsored
dance. It met approval there and now has the
nod from the faculty senate. The only stipula
tion is that student support of the dance will be
a factor In approving future off campus dances.
The question arising now is why is it neces
sary for a school this size to hold a University
sponsored dance off campus?
There are only two logical places to hold a
University dance on city campus. One place is the
Coliseum; the other is the Union ballroom. Ag
students have facilities for an all Ag campus
dance in the Activities building.
The capacity for the Union ballroom is about
1200 to 1500. When name bands appeared at the
ballroom, attendance sometimes was this high.
manager of Kings is donating the ballroom for
We believe AUF made a wise move. Al
though the spot is off campus, it may serve
to awaken other campus groups to the possibility
of having dances held .other places than the
Coliseum when they bite nails wondering if
they will end up In the red. Harry Carpenter,
manager of Kings, cetrainly deserves apprecia
tion of AUF and University students.
It is triumph for a campus organization and
students to find a place where it is possible to
get a good dance band, schedule a dance and give
proceeds to charity. The faculty is to be congratu
lated for their approval of the action. After all
it is an unprecedented move in face of seemingly
insurmountable campus difficulties.

Wars Are Senseless'; Movie
Imparts Message With Wallop
By STAFF REVIEWER
Wars are senseless.
A movie, "The Day the Earth
Stood Still," imparts this message.
And it does the job with a wal
lop. What's more, it is one of the
most different films produced in
a long lime.
The story concerns a space-ship
from an unnamed planet some
-J50 million miles from the earth.
With the space-ship comes Klaatu,
portrayed by Michael Rennie. and
a mechanical robot called Gord.
The two bring evidences of a
civilization for advanced from our
When Klaatu steps from the
space-ship, he is shot by armed
guards who have surrounded the
ship. His later attempts to get
the leaders of nations to confer
with him are first met with
suspicion, then frustration.
In desperation, he tries to find
a way to learn about the people
of the earth. He finds sympathy

ideal situation. In fact, it would resemble sar
dines packed tightly.
The other dance floor is the Coliseum. While
this facilitates a large number of students, the
majority of campus organizations do not have
a large enough budget to risk renting the Coli
seum. Because of its size, a large band would
have to be booked for the dance in order
to make it successful. The investment is too
great for most groups and the rental fee alone
amounts to about $350 depending on the ar
rangements. - In the case of AUF, the group did not even
consider having the charity ball there because it
would be impossible to net any profits without
securing a name band. That was out of the ques
tion. It should be pointed out that the Coliseum
is not a University owned enterprise, but rather a
corporation operated on a business basis, not
through the University. Therefore, unless the or
ganization has the $350 to rent the building and
can risk booking a name band, they are better
off forgetting the Coliseum. AUF did not consider

of ball they planned, so other facilities were in
ternities may submit candidates for Ugliest Man
on Campus. Next week class officer filings open.
If you're an upperclassman with an accept
able average you probably would be eligible for
one of them. However, although too few stu
dents generally file for office, too many stu
dents file merely to gain political prestige.
Those students who file for an office and have
no interest in improving it have no business even
considering the job.
To be well known on this campus, it helps
to become an activity boy or girl or a party boy
However, if you aspire to be both WELL
KNOWN and WELL RESPECTED, there is no
place for you in any group if you are there
merely for political purposes, namely to get
your candidate further and to "push" another.
You'll be comparatively well known when you
receive any post for which filings now are open.
But you will be even more well known for
dirty politicking unless you intend to devote
sincere efforts to the group. This has been
proved in past years by past officers. We're
idealistic in hoping to have every student who
files doing so because of ability and interest and
not because of politics. But there's always hope.
The vogue today may be to file for office,

Maybe It Was Monday, Maybe The Union;
Beer Can Creates Furor Among Students
Your Candid Reporter tried something new
Monday. This time no questions were asked, but
a lot of them were answered. What brought on
the remarkable change? Well, it was like this . . ,

the Union. So, she grabbed a beer can (empty)
and started through the sacred portals of our

Several asked where she got it. The Crib

One complete teetotaler whispered in shocked
tones, 'How long has this been going on?"

that no action was taken.

waiters told her to keep it hidden, and one told
the sad story of "some guy who got sent to
jail for having wine." The lecture was inter

He was shut off with a faint whiff of the

Everything went well until the experiment
was almost over. Then some wiseacre from The

"Hey, how come you're carrying an empty beer

Faculty, YWCA Discuss
Scholarship Vs. Activities
A number of University faculty
members and YWCA workers met
last week in the faculty lounge
in the Union to discuss the sub
ject of "Scholarship vs. Activi
ties." Faculty members who attended
the meeting were Miss Elsie Je
vons, Miss Mary Mielenz, Miss
Ruth Shinn, Summer House and
Dr. C. H. Patterson. Miss Sue
Arbuthnot, faculty advisor of YW,
and Barbara Bredthauer, student
advisor, were also present.
Another meeting will be held
Thursday in the faculty lounge
at 4:30 p.m.
The topic for discussion will be
"Religion and Higher Education."
All students and faculty mem
bers are invited to attend.

Meigs came to Nebraska in

a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree
from Syracuse University in 1941,

latest releases. "And So to Sleep Again," both
came out this week. Patty's recording is average.
It lacks interpretation and follows a slow dreamy
beat throughout the disc. April Stevens' version
is by far the better. Her singing is superb. She
has that added touch in her vocalizing that may
be regarded as "sexy," but in reality it is perfect
phrasink and rhythm.
Elliot Lawrence and his orchestra have cut
a new LP disc entitled "Moonlight on the Cam
pas." Here are songs which are typical of the
American campus. Elliot captures the campus
spirit with "Down the Old Ox Road," "Moonlight
on the Campus," "The Halls of Ivy," and "The
Beer That I Left on the Bar," which I would
like to dedicate to the boys who almost missed
the train at Manhattan.
One of the reasons for the current return-of-the-dance
band movement is Jerry Gray. His
music is full toned, danceable and listonable. Jerry
was top arranger for Artie Shaw, Tex Beneke,
and the late Glenn Miller. With the new bands
coming up and playing what they called Miller
music, Jerry decided it was time to step in and
produce some of the real stuff. In the past few
months he has not only done that but he has im
proved and advanced Miller's music. Here are
some of Jerry's best number on his latest LP re
lease: "Day and Night," "Dancing in the Dark,""
and "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes."
