Leonard Bush states: "The University of Nebraska needs class officers who have the interest, ability and time to unify their class, and build school spirit. The decrease in the enrollment of the University in the last few years is not only due to the graduation of the G.

Wednesday, October 31, 1951 Tofles Presentation Of Othello 'Miraculous' By CHARLES ROSSOW Staff Writer Tuesday's presentation of Othe llo by the University Theatre was truly a credit to the students and instructors of the University. Professor Dallas Williams has produced what I believe to be one of the finest shows that has been seen by an audience of stu dents. The acting in the play was just short of miraculous as each pre- former seemed to be molded into the play. . Jack Wenstrand played an Othello which must be com pared to a professional. The part of Iago could not have been Portrayed anv mora plparlv nr ' realistically, and Hank Gibson, wno played the part, will be re membered by many people for his- excellent work. Pat Loder in her first major role and a most difficult one at that, did a tremendous jo. As for supportine actors Mar ty Miller as Emilia cannot be too highly praised. Equally effective was Wes Jensby in his portrayal ot cassio. The other actors who should receive mention, although each performer in the play did a creditable job, are Dick Carson in the role of Rodrigo and Di ane Downing as Bianca. Technical Dirprtnr flan Tnlf-h should be congratulated for his fine reproduction of a Shakes pearian set. The lighting and sound unaer tne supervision of Dick Garatson should also he rnm- mended. , Housel Krueger more than just a name. "5.

Bobby Rey nolds, AU-American halfback, will make his first appearance this year at a pep rally. Corn Cobs and Tassels will present a ikit pertaining to the Homecom ing dance Saturday night. "Preacher" Franklin, Nebraska end coach, will be the featured speaker. "Any student boy can cneer lor its football team while it is winning," Ira Epstein, rally committee member, stresses.
