W Debaters Finally 'Snowed'

By BARB SHARP
For once in their lives, usually
glib University debaters discover
ed they couldn't talk their way
out of a dilemma.
Ten debaters, ocbate coach
Donald Olson and speech assistant
Ruth Michaelson were snowed in
while attending a debate tourna

day. The snow began Thursday
evening and continued steadily un
til late Saturday evening when
an approximate 15 inches blanket
ed the area.
Although the snow was beneficial
to Denver and the surrounding
area's water supply, it was not
considered an aid for travel. To
make matters worse, the Colorado
Highway Patrol was not the least
affected by the quick tongues of
the Conhuskers as they made re
peated calls to the Patrol about
clearing the roads. Officials merely
told then to enjoy their additional
day in Denver . Sunday, although
they had planned to leave on

absorb some culture during their
prolonged stay in Denver. "We

Rogers, "but honestly, we went

Housing Advisory Committee
To Plan Health Code For NU
By ROGER WAIT
The first housing code specifical

developed at the University, Tom
Gable, public health engineer for
University Health Services, said
Although the University has vari
ous regulations concerning housing,
he said, the code currently being
developed is the first from the

Advisory Committee will represent
all types of student housing, Gable
said, adding that he code will be
written with the committee's full
co-operation. All University build

will come under the jurusdiction of
After coming to the University
in May, 1953, Gable surveyed quar
ters of students who room in Lin
coln homes. Some of them, he
found, resembled "old missions."
In the winter of 1953-54, Gable
secured Administration approval to
investigate other types of student
bousing. In the spring of 1954, he
surveyed living facilities in fratern
ities, sororities, dormitories and co
op houses, submitting a report to
the Administration in June.
Late last year, Gable received
the administration's approval to
draw a code implementing Section
XIII of the Official Sanitary Code
of the University, which states:
"Student Housing: Standards of
safety and sanitation for all stu
dent housing may be established."
The housing code will take into
consideration basic principles of
healthful housing by meeting funda-

measures are not taken, he added,
a report will then be submitted to

Eventually, Gable hopes to have

will meet regularly to consider
standards which they think would

"and we're looking for contribu

He stressed that the code will be
written with the full co-operation of
