The election brought out over 1,056 voters,

student body will not allow their government te
go te pot. An alert student body will make their
leaders do something for the good t all.
The junior nd senior classes now have new

to do the jobs to which they were elected. We

This is the spirit which makes good univer

Depending on the number of years alums have

degrees of changes. The lovely landscaping in front
of Love library probably is new to many. The
walks nnd beginnings of landscaping around the
Carillon tower will be new to most grads. There's
"new face on lot of the campus which has
happened 3a recent years. Some alums will return
to find old residences replaced by new buildings
or vacant lots earmarked for phases of the long
range building program. They probably will be
reminded of continual improvements as they pass
near the library. The fertilizer is quite noticeable.
There -are improvements in the Union and some
new buildings. Even the Carillon tower, just pass
ing Its second anniversary, will be new to many.
These are some changes alums will notice.
There will be ' some Intangible ones for the

Most of the candidates for class officers have
on record as favoring some kind
younger generations and mostly unfamiliar faces.
Along with this, though, most alums will notice
an Intangible feeling of familiarity.
Colors of Scarlet and Cream still will dot
the campus at every corner. Pom-poms will be
waving at the game, a card section will add color
to the half time period, the University band will
be playing familiar songs along with some newer,
ones. Some yells may be new, but cheering from
these younger generations won't be too much dif
ferent from previous classes. The 1951 innovation
of 10 steps and then yelling "'Go Nebraska, Beat
Kansas," might seem a little foolish to some alums,

is still the same as last year, five years or 20,
