Plans for a new method of dis

campus were announced Thursday
by Ken Keller, director of Univer
sity Public Relations, and Ed
Berg, Nebraskan circulation man
ager. The new plan is to insure more
equitable distribution of the pa
pers, Berg said.
"The idea Is," Berg added, "to
deliver all papers to the vari
ous boxes of the buildings on
Ag and city campus, and to
make no more direct deliveries
to organized houses. In this way
we feel everyone will have the
same opportunity to pick up a
paper after their classes."

see how efficient the new system
against superstition has made a
pretty clean sweep among the
peoples we call civilized, except
for the last day in October. Hallo

relics that his forefathers consid

For Friday night this writer
predicts a visit to the museum.
A million bucks will be spent
for costumes of witches, goblins
and ghosts. Another million or
more will go for theater tickets
to spook shows. Haunted houses
will be sought and visited in the
