Student Council passed the pro
rosed "policy of limiting scholar
ship and classroom activity"
Wednesday by a vote of 14 to 134.
The meeting was held in the
University Stadium so that inter
ested students might hear the de
bate. Council members who were
jn favor of the program passed
candy kisses and jaw breakers.
Those who opposed the contro
versy had hired a band from
Omaha that played "Don't Take
Away Our Books," an original
song by William Kalamazoo.
The new policy for the limita
tion of scholarship and classroom
activity is entitled the Policy to
Prevent College Students From Be
ing Fatigued, Neurotic and Just
Too Tuckered Out.
Jack Rogers, president of Stu
dent Council, explained that a
point system would be used. Each
individual is allowed to have three
points. A person receives one
point for getting a 9 or 8 in a
course. If he gets three 8's, the
rest of his grades must be for
feited. The grade of 6 and 7 are
equal to one-half point each, with
a 5 and 4 rating one-quarter point
each. There are no points for
grades below 4.
Besides grades, an individual re
ceives a point if he attends class
three-fourths of the time.

The persons opposed to the poli
cy stated that it was up to the in
dividual if he wanted to become
fatigued, neurotic and just too
tuckered out. Marvin Stromer,
president of the Pure-In-Heart So
ciety, said that he knew many
happy students with an 8.5 aver
age. "Just think of that exquisite
precious moment when you peer
over the top of your 'History of
the Llama' to look at the clock,"
"If a person does not study until
late in the night he will never ap
preciate this fragile moment,"
Stromer continued. "Too many
times a person just stares at a
clock, does nothing else but stare,
then this act becomes common
and vulger," he said.
Stromer then whipped out a book
by Edna St. South West and be

Rogers thumbed quickly through
his Roberts' Rules of Order to
find out what to do when some
one begins to quote long passages
underlined in red ink from a poet

While Rogers slapped through
the table of contents, a member
who was in the opposition group
quietly gave Stromer a rabbit
punch. He slunk unobtrusively un
der the table and was not heard
from again during the meeting.
SC Approves Limit
The Student Council voted Wed
nesday to limit the number of ac
tivities in which each animal in
the University can participate.
The new policy which goes into
effect immediately will limit each
animal to a one year term as
president of the respective animal
clubs, such as the U.A.A (United
Angus Association).- Under the
provisions an animal may serve
as a board member of only two
animal groups such as the United
Dairy Cows and the Brown Swiss
The new policy will affect the
cattle, hogs, and sheep in animal
husbandry, dairy animals in the
dairy department and chickens and
turkeys in the poultry department.
The Council passed by unanimous
vote an amendment to not include
worms or any of the bird species
because the group felt that these
animals were not under the direct
supervision of the University.
The Block and Bridle Spring
Show will be affected to some ex
tent by the new policy. The Coun
cil's action will forbid any animal
from entering the show more than
twice and winning grand champion
more than once.

The hidden reason behind the

The social whirl on the old NU campus reached a fever pitcb last
week as everyone went casually ape ever the coming of Spring and
the advent of the vernal equinox.
The unseasonable warm weather proved no damper to tiwiezi
spirits, as there were 23 pinnings,, 14 engagements, six elopements,
wedding in the first-floor hall of Burnett at 11 a.m. aod a prnmate
beating on the corner of 16th and S Street which brought a large crowd
of spectators and three tramplings of freshman English majors.
Parties, too, were everywhere, and happy couples could be seen
racing across lawns and vaulting hedges as they raced from one gay,
mad tea, reception or wienie roast to another.
Perhaps the biggest smash on campus was the gaia annual Dear
baiting and cole-slaw festival sponsored by NUCWA and AWS. Among
the couples attending were Floyd Krmjkw and Edna St. Vincent Mfflay,
Dean Johnston and J. Edgar Hoover, Max Shuhnan and Florence
Catapult and Maud Mojave and Sam J. N'orgle.
Delta Delta Delta, known in intimate circles as Tri-Delt. held their

Dinner Dance and Bop Appreciation Concert in the Mauve Room of
the Flatiron Hotel in Omaha Thursdr. '
Seen at the occasion were s whole raft of gaily-bedecked Tri-Delts
and General Pershing, who joshingly said even though he had "one
foot in the grave," be was glad he could be present.
Fhi Phi Phi, national temperance society, held a "Anti-Alcohol
Rally" on the steps of the Union Thursday night. Speeches were given
by Carrie Nation Susan B. Anthony on "Liquor, Vice of Vices" and
"Me and My Hatchet.
The Bi-Monthly Ball of the Friday Afternoon Chowder and March

great success. Among the couples wfco stormed the Library and
razed Avery Lab were Sharon Kuntzfa-e.r and Alfred Wombat, Magnolia
Jones and R. Black Henkle and Gcr.e Christenson and his clipboard.
Last, but not least, was the Gin Flu and Clam Digging celebration
given by a group of friends for recently un-incarcerated T. IL Eelf
and Igor Gillopsie. ' '
Ten un-pinnings were announced ti Thursday evening Qaarrel Cab
