We Heartily Approve
Tradition Broken
A certain tradition of long-standing has been
given a serious jolt on the University campus. In
fac it has been Shattered for nt Jeast one year's
time. The women have made up their minds and
have delivered their ultimatum ,to the men.
Yes, it's true the Associated Women Students
board has decided, with faculty permission, that
the annual Coed Follies will be "open to the pub
lic" this year for the first time, as far as our
records show.
Last winter's Coed Follies was unprecedented,
M far as The Daily Nebraskan is concerned, in
its rowdlness through the annual crashing of the
how by University men. AWS saw the need
for a change and went to work.
Jean Loudon, AWS president, and Jan Steffen,
board member in charge of the show, mentioned
several facts in a letter to the faculty committee
which necessitated the change.
Tressure from the Lincoln police evidenced that
the Follies' crashing had become a problem to them
as well as to the women. Actually, no valid rea
son for closing the show to the public ever existed
except that the "women only" attitude had be
come tradition. No changes need be made in the
performance in order to open them to the public
and the annual crashing was giving AWS rather
unfavorable publicity.
In order to open the Follies to the public,
AWS saw that two nights of the show were
needed. And so it shall be on Feb. 23 and 24 of
1953 at the Nebraska Theater. Tentative plans
Indicate that the Typical Nebraska Coed will be
' presented on the first night and the final skit
judging will be reserved for the final perform
ances. This opening wide the Follie doors is simply
being tried by AWS this year. Great financial
risk is involved a risk which AWS seems willing
to take to correct a long-standing campus prob
lem. Perhaps the general public in Lincoln will
now be anxious to see the show. Perhaps, at
first, University men will be interested. The
intrigue Is apt to wear off. The Nebraskan staff
hopes it doesn't. AWS has taken a progressive
step. We sincerely hope they don't have to walk
backwards. R. R.
Looks Like Progress
It looks like fall semester, 1952, might be a
pleasant one for University housemothers and
their female wards because of the action AWS
recently took in regard to quiet hours, closing
hours, special permissions and "down-hour" re
strictions. AWS says Its revision of the rules was carried
out In answer to requests from University women
and their housemothers. The philosophy under
lying each change Is solid and wise. AWS says
that its rules are "subject to revision each year."
They now have proved that they mean It.
Quiet hours and the lmes that men may bo In
women's houses have been coordinated which
undoubtedly will allow housemothers to do other
things besides spending each evening chasing men
from their abodes.
AWS has In words to this effect told fresh
men women that after their first Bemester, they
will receive those privileges so accorded upper
classmen. More time for studying, activities and,
wc presume, adult behavior.
Under the revised rules only women with
four or more hours of downs will be restricted
duflng Ihe week. When a University woman re
ceives a down hour from a certain department,
it Is sometimes difficult to carry on study in
order to remove the delinquency. AWS has
recognized this fact.
And, instead of chasing University women out
of properly chaperoned men's houses at 12 on
Saturday nights when the women do not have to
be home until 1 a.m., AWS is now requiring that
12:30 be the time to start for home.
One of the biggest revisions made by AWS
and perhaps the one subject to the touchiest trial
is that special permission slips do not have to
be signed by one of the seven senior AWS board
members. The woman makes out her own per
mission slip and then takes it to her housemother
for final approval.
In a University of this size, It would seem
that restrictions, particularly upon the women,
will always be necessary, AWS must enforce
such restrictions. In their revised rules, they
have admitted that, In many instances, Unlver
sity women may be trusted and expected to act
as they should. The new rules are more pro
gress for AWS and Its wards. We should be
thankful. R. R.
Question: K.U. Or Colorado?
To The Mountains
" The call pf the hills can be heard in the campus
coffee shops, the study holes and the classrooms,
r The majesty of the mountains is inviting and the
plainsmen from Nebraska are eager to enjoy it.
The University of Colorado is in the mountains
and the Cornhuskers play football with CU this
year. To a great many students, a migration to
Colorado looked awfully good; but to the Student
Council Wednesday, it looked awfully expensive.
This is the situation: a good trip would cost so
much that it might become an exclusive affair
and not truly a University migration. As an al
ternative, the migration committee, under the
chairmanship of Eldort Park, suggested to the
Council Wednesday that the migration go to the
University-of Kansas. After a little, very little,
discussion, the Council voted to approve the Kansas
suggestion. This, however, is only tentative, sub
ject to final approval by the administration.
It was brought out very definitely at the
Council meeting that no matter how the students
decided on the migration question, the adminis
tration would probably decide on Kansas which
would mean that the students would go to
Kansas. The administration, ideally, should let
the students solve their own problems, but it
must be admitted that the school has a large
responsibility when its students pick up and go
to another campus so administrative concern
can be excused. The University officials prob
ably feel that they are better able to make de
cisions of this type. Perhaps they are.
Despite the fact that the call of the hills can
also be heard in our offices, The Nebraskan agrees
with the Council decision and the probable ad
ministration decision. .While he was giving his
migration committee report Wednesday, Park
mentioned that for around $45 a student could
have a good trip. When you double that to get
the date price, it explains the reasoning that
prompted the Council to recommend Kansas.
According to testimony given at the meeting
Wednesday, a trip to Kansas would cost some
thing just under $10 including game ticket. With
any luxuries you might want to add, this still
would remain in the realm of the common purse.
It must be granted that there is a great differ
ence between Boulder and Lawrence, but the
football game itself promises to be Just as good.
Both Colorado and Kansas rate as potential con
ference powers and advance publicity indicates
that the Huskers will play good ball this year.
Since the primary reason for migrations is sup
posed to be the football game, no one should com
plain about the change. Nevertheless, the call of
the mountains can be heard above the clamor of
the game. Many, many students have already in
dicated that they plan to answer that call in an
unofficial way. It was suggested at the Council
meeting that there be an unofficial migration to
Colorado with the arrangement that all the Corn
huskers sit together at the game.
However, this received no official Council
action either pro or con. It was discussed and
the discussion brought out the fact that it would
be hard for an automobile migration to have
even unofficial sanction. The only way the Uni
versity could feel safe under this arrangement
would be with a chaperon in each car. This
would be -unwieldy. It is hard enough to handle
students on the train, the reasoning goes, with
out trying to watch over a hundred separate cars.
There is a great deal to be said for this reason
lag if you are sitting near the phone parents
use when they call in complaints.
Perhaps the scenery will be different in Kansas
this year. It wasn't "iactly stimulating last year,
- but $45 would be a lot to pay for the stimulation
' Colorado has to offer. D. P.
to the University of Kansas this year seems to
have touched off a battery of cries concerning
the Council's loyalty to University students and
threats of an unofficial migration.
Students have criticized Council members for
refusing to consider seriously a migration to the
University of Colorado, and for becoming slaves
to a so-called Kansas-migration tradition.
The critics, however, can find no ground in the
proceedings of the Council upon which to base
their nonloyalty attacks. The first reason is that
the Council members would undoubtedly have
supported a migration to Colorado if such a mass
movement would have appeared at all feasible.
On the contrary, the great distance to Boulder
(550 miles, according to estimates) and the inabil
ity of a Council committee to obtain a reduced
student body railroad rate shot the estimated cost
of the trip to $40 or more.
Even on this basis, the Council discussed two
possibilities for Colorado migration. The first was
a regular migration with the charge set at the
estimated $40. According to the committee, the
minimum number of participants 200 might be
obtained without too much difficulty since the
University marching band would account for ap
proximately 110 persons.
The second possibility for a migration to Colo
rado assumed the form of an inquiry, in which one
member asked if the migrators might travel by car
instead of railroad the cost being considerably
less if four or five students traveled in each auto
mobile. The answer, however, was that such a
migration would not have the official sanction of
the University and could not thus be termed a
student migration.
Since neither of these plans offered any solu
tion to the problem, the Council formally approved
the Kansas trip. The proposal will still have to
be passed by the administration.
Before the Council considers taking any part
in the clamor for mass attendance at Boulder, it
will seriously weigh all of the implications and
possible dangers of such a move.
Before a large number of students decide to
journey to Colorado in preference to Kansas, they,
too, much consider the possible effect upon the
regular migration and upon a unified Cornhusker
' If the administration approves migration to
Kansas, which it will probably do, it is the duty
of University students to support the official mi
gration to the best of their ability. Then, if they
have an excess of gridiron spirit and of traveling
allowance, let's stage a rump migration.
What could be more exciting than a pigskin
tussle in the shadow of the Colorado Rockies?

simply that I think less of Nix

a change), I'd like to wish the
Hunkers a fruitful season and
the very best of luck.

Fall Clothes Soke Weather Problem;
Looh Like Wool, Yet Feel Like Cotton
On any coVlege campus the month of September
is definitely NOT tho time to see well-dressed
A logical reason is that we girls cannot seem
to make up ourtmlnd between wools and cottons
for class wear.
If this demoralizing, de
vitalizing heat continues, the
Nebraska coed wilj melt away
from wearing cashmeres. On
the other hand, the often
thought, smarter girt who
wears her summer cottons to
class may find her lessons
suffering; for so much time Is
taken in keeping skirts,
blouses or dresses fresh.
It's a little late to solve this dilemma now, but
it is an opportune time to note science's answer to
our annual problem.
"Seasonal" cottons are beginning to enter the
market for an all-day, all-year addition to the
practical wardrobe. With special emphasis on
cotton tweeds the new fabrics have the ability
to retain their handsome good looks indefinitely.
They shed their wrinkles, resist spotting and
soiling and are guaranteed against stretching and
shrinking. What's more they are wrinkle-resistant
and tailor perfectly.
College shops now feature the new fabric In
tweedy cotton dresses with velvet, linen or rib
knit trimming. Buyers comment that customers
are buying these for wear during the hot season.
Favorite color combinations are black and white,
grey and, white or royal blue and wine mixtures.
Plenty of Interest in winter cottons has added
a new chapter to fashion fundamentals. What
would be a better buy for school wear than a
tweedy cotton dress that looks and acts like wool
... but feels like a cool cotton?

A Great Stride
They don't even tell you what to
do. They just say; "PLEASE,
Newly Seeded."
Perhaps this is an appeal to the
traditional intellect of the univer
sity student. It was probably
reasoned that college students did
not need to be hollered at, all they
need is a subtle hint. This sign
is subtle to the hilt and exceed
ingly polite.
The Nebraskan believes that
this approach to a traditional
problem is healthy. One doesn't
have to be laughed at very often
before he realizes that It doesn't
do any good to preach or get
tough. Because either way the
result Is resentment. Very often
the only effective method of
dealing with problems like
lawn-walking" and class-cutting
is the subtle, "we-understand"
approach the Administration
used with the sign.
Actually, it seems as if the psy
chology might be working. The
newly seeded areas look like they
are coming along all right and
hardly any students have passed
out from the exhaustion of walk
ing on sidewalks. The Nebraskan
would like to hail the plan as a
great stride in student-faculty re
lations. D.P.
In this age of high pressure ad
vertising, signs are not unusual.
They blink at us, they scream at
us, they wave at us. They tell us
what to do, where to do it, how to
do it, and why it should be done
But the signs recently pot up
on the campus are different.
They don't scream or blink.
They are not mechanical or
made of flourescent materials.
Margin Notes
Contribution To Culture
A University professor. Dr. E. N.
Anderson, has been appointed to
assist in one of the truly signifi

is the writing and editing of a
world history which eliminates
prejudices of nations and authors!
and which should provide as ac
