Colorado Vote Defeats
Proposed Honor System
A proposed honor system at
Colorado A&M was defeated last
week by almost a two to one vote
However, students voted two to
one that the honor system Idea Is
a good thing, but Indicated that
they felt the proposed plan Is ln
adequat? and that they were
rushing into the program too
Students wishing to adopt the
honor system voted on one of
three plans that they would pre
fer to have In effect. The plan
approved by most students was
that on a first offense a warn
ing' would be made, second of
fense a failing grade in the
course in which the offense oc
curred. For Professors Only
At Lehigh university the school
paper nas drawn up suggestions
for professors on how to be pop
ular. The prime requisite is a
soft, caressing speaking voice,
which is more conducive to sleep,
of course. Instructors who gestic
ulate with their hands were
termed social failures. Those who
don't smile were also frowned
Nasty Prof Resigns
An Arlington State college pro
fessor last week resigned from the
college faculty after being accused
of telling obscene stories in his
English classes. Und isclosed
sources report that his many stu
dents are regretful of his sudden
departure now they never will
get the punch line to the last joke.
Still Water Runs Deep
Students who seldom speak in
class may be learning more than
the professor thinks, according to
a study at the University of Chi
cago. The study also showed that
most students actually have
their minds on the lecture
about two thirds of the class
period. The other third of the
time their minds wander. Pro
fessors get three tips from the
researchers: Don't make too
many wisecracks; don't be an
tagonistic; don't make the im
portant points in the early lec
tures. K-State Yearbook Sued
The Royal Purple yearbook at
Kansas State College is likely to
be sued by a highly dissatisfied
customer. He's a senior who posed
for the yearbook picture in a wig,
a high stiff collar and a pince
nez, and who has hinted he'll sue
the yearbook if it doesn't use the
photograph. "I don't need to give
any explanation," he said. "I gave
them my dollar and a quarter.
The Royal Purple has refused
to print on the grounds that stu
dents must pose in their normal
wearing apparel. The senior
calls this policy "discriminatory
and characteristic of undemo
Tips From Temple
Drama majors, take a tip from a
Temple university student. On
week-ends Arthur Zigouras is a
clown. Employed by a local candy
company, he visits 30 to 40 super
candy rsmples to children. "It
markets each week-end giving out
helps my acting ability," he ex
plained. Bars At Bowdoin
President K. C. M. Sills of
Bowdoin college presented his
arguments against excessive
drinking in college to the under-
classmen of that school recently
in a chapel talk.
His main complaint was that
too much drinking was and is
going on in the fraternities and
the "very name of 'bar'" within
fraternity houses has a bad con
notation and an unfavorable effect
on the college's reputation. The
bars now in use are structures in
the basements of the houses, used
for the party weekends through
out the year. Therefore, most un
dergraduates protested the belief
that there was too much drinking.
They further stated that if any
drinking problems in existence
would have to be solved if the
bars were taken out.
through study and reports of
the various types of formations
expected to be found.
The group will start at Lincoln
and travel to Laramie, Wyo. Sat
urday night will be spent at Lan
der, Wyo. The next stops are all
in Utah: Heber, Vernal, Provo,
Gunnison and Green River. Glen
wood Springs and Denver, Colo.,
are the last stops on the ten-day
trip before returning to Lincoln
On the trip the students will
learn and correlate the differ
ent types of strata, study the
structure of the different types
of mountain ranges, and visit
and study typical oil and gas
The purpose of the geology
course, said Dr. Gililland, "Is to
acquaint students with the geo
logy of a large portion of the
country in much the same man
ner as if they were privately em
ployed." He said that, the field
trip is organized with that in mind.

Planning and scheduling two
entertaining programs a month is
a fairly big task; but according
to Norma Lrickson, head of the
Red Cross College Unit entertain
ment committee, such a task is
met and accomplished each
Miss Erickson is in charge of
the committee which takes two
programs a month to the Veter
ans hospital and the State hos
pital. inougn these programs
may contain the same material,
there is always new planning and
scheduling to do.
Miss Erickson does not plan
the programs herself. She has a
central committee composed of
five University students who
aid her in the necessary ar
rangements for each program.
These committee members are:
Marvin Slromer; John Hillock;
Marian McCulloch; and Caralco
Rogers. The central committee
and Miss Erickson locate the
talent for each program and
schedule rehearsals. In addition,
they make future arrangements
on when they are to appear at
the two institutions.
In commenting on how the pro
grams are usually received, Miss
Erickson said that "they always
seem to enjoy them quite a bit."
Producing a "short one-act skit"
usually requires about two weeks
of rehearsal, Miss Erickson said.
She added that most of these skits
are ones that have proved suc
cessful in high school and other
In addition to the regular pro
gram work done by this commit
tee, they also plan special pro
ductions for various programs. A
recent example of this planning
was shown at the Red Cross
March Fund drive show held at
the Cornhusker hotel. The RCCU
entertainment committee p r e
sented a program for the Lan
caster Red Cross County workers.
