As Director
Marilyn Moomey, University
senior, has been appointed acting
director of Union activities, Union
manager Duane Lake announced
Tuesday. She will take over the
position held by Mrs. Genene
Grimm whose resignation will be
come effective March 15.
Miss Moomey will supervise and
w w A' I J
coordinate the work done by stu
dent activity committees until the
end of the present school term.
As member of the Union
board of managers during the
past two years, she has ac
quainted herself with the acti
vities program. She also estab
lished and served as chairman
of the Union house and office
committee. Last spring Miss
Moomey was the student dele

Miss Moomey will be the
third . Union activities director.
Her predecessor, Mrs. Grimm,
served this office since Sent.
"Genene has done a good Job
and we regret losing her very
much." Lake said. "During her
time a firm foundation of expan

helped broaden the scope of the

Tho recommendation was killed
by the expected faculty-student
split in committee.
In an effort to ease the cur
rent parking controversy, how
ever, the committee reduced the
segregated-parklng hours to
permit "firetcome-first-serve"
parking after 1 p.m., effective
Monday. Under the present rul
ing, segregated lots are opened
to students at 1:30 p.m.
The committee also voted to
combine faculty parking lots C,
D and E and thus enable C, D
and 2 faculty drivers to park in
any of the three areas.
According to Dean Carl W
Borgman. chairman of the com
mittee, a greater number of auto
mobiles can be assigned to one
large parking lot than to several
smaller lets with an equal number
of stalls.
The combining of parking lots is
also effective Monday, following
announcement in the faculty bul
The committee expressed its
hope that, through the combined
area! faculty cars assigned to
lot F can eventually be parked
in lots C. D and E. Lot F
would then be left open-entirely
for student parking.
A reporl from the faculty liai
son committee recommended re
serving three large parking areas
for faculty automobiles, instead
of the large number of small lots.
According to the report, presented
by Harold Wise, parking commit
tee and liaison committee member
the faculty areas would not be
centrally located.
The report also recommended
that perhaps the distance from a
student's residence to the Univer
sity necessary to obtain parking
permits could be extended from
the present eight blocks to ten,
twelve or more. By decreasing
permit-eligible students, the ratio
of student cars to parking stalls
could be reduced to the ratio of
faculty cars to parking stalls.
At the present, the student ratio
is 2.75 cars to a space, while the
faculty ratk is 1.75 cars.
Looking toward po s s i b 1 e
parking streamlining for next
year, Dean Borgmann appointed
Student Council President
George Cobel to draw up a set
of regulations for decreasing
faculty parking areas by grant
ing student permits to labor and
clerical workers now possessing
faculty stickers. Borgmann esti
mated that perhaps the faculty
areas could be cut in half by
such a move.
The committee informally up
held rustication as punishment for
an excess of parking tickets. It
thus refused to consider establish
ing a system of fines as substitute
lor rustication.

politics. As hostesses at a recep
tion Monday for ex-Gov.
Dwight Griswold, now running,
for United States Senate, the
four women assisted Mrs. Gris
wold at the Nebraska Republi

Damaris v Riddell, junior in

take an interest in whom we
elect because "elections now
will affect us more than they
will our parents."
"I am a young Republican,"
declared Dorothy Elliott, Teach
ers college junior, "and if I
were 21 I would vote for Gris
wold." Miss Elliott called Gris
wold a "good guy," and added
good citizenship "is our duty
something we should start now
instead of after college."
Elizabeth Gass, junior Ag col
lege student, said young people
should be interested in their
leaders and in good leaders. "All
of us should show more, inter
est in politics," she said,'"and
Griswold is the kind of man our
country needs."
Sandra Riddell, senior in
Teachers college, believes it, is
"about time Republicans came
back into power. If they are
to do so," she added, "everyone
must take an active interest in
our future leaders."
Griswold, a Regent of the
University, said, "As long as
students take an interest in poli

John Riddell, York attorney,
commented that Founders Day
has always placed an "accent on
youth" by the election of young
Republicans as junior president
and junior vice president of the
organization. Riddell added that
University students attend "in
large numbers and get some of
their first political lessons from
the sessions."
The first Republican Founders
Day was held March, 1935, and
was patterned after Kansas
