Dec. 16 Program: nnual Messiah Production lated Dec. 76, In Coliseum On December 16th in the Colise um, over 600 University students t will take part in the forty-second annual presentation " of Handles' Messiah. Soloists of this year's hour-and-a-half production will be Shirley Halligan, Soprano; Phylis Malory, Alto; Richard Voth, Tenor and Robert Vitols, Bass. The Presentation of the Messiah by the University of Nebraska has become a tradition that could no more be dispensed with than could the football team. It has become an event that has religious signifi cance for literally hundreds of church groups in the Lincoln area. Each year the crowds attending keep swelling and this year it is estimated that approximately 8,000 will come. Moreover, the influence of the Messiah is spread outstate by Uni versity graduates. Omaha, Seward, Albion, Central City, and Scotts bluff are all presenting "The Mes siah" this year which will have been directly influenced by t h e University's original production. Professor David Foltz, Chair man of the Department of Music who will direct the Messiah this year, defines the production as an oratorio. This means that it is a narative set to music. The original Messiah was written in the in credibly short time of 24 days by its composer George Frederick Handel, at the order of the king ot England. The King was advised by his clergymen not to allow the Dresen tation.of the oratoria. which has since become one of the most wide ly presented compositions in his tory. Therefore, the first time it was heard was in Dublin, Ireland, in 1741. Tradition says, however, that tne king, George II, ordered a private performance in spite of the objerctions of his clergy. The king was so moved by the production that during the singing of the Hallelujah Chorus, which con cludes the performance, he rose to his feet, thus establishing a tradition which survives to this day. In spite of this, it was 1750 be fore officials allowed the Messiah to be performed in London. After that however, the presentation of the piece at Christmas and Easter became one of England's most re vered traditions. Today the Messiah is presented al! over the world at two major holy festivals of the year, Christ mas and Easter. It tells the story of the birth, death and resurrec tion getting the most emphasis de pending on the season of the year. Many cities in America are fa mous for their presentations of the work. Chicago presents one of the best and New York has over fifty presented in the course of a year; but surprisingly the presentation which is annually ranked the high est is the one in little Lindberg, Kansas. Some of the biggest names in the field of concert mu sic have performed here. Foltz, who has seen most of the major productions in the United States, contends that the Univer sity's presentation is comparable to any of the best. Foltz has said that "Seeing the Messiah present ed anywhere is one of the most moving religious and musical ex periences that our lives can have.

By DAVE HERZOG Nebraska Reporter There are three areas of service to the university that fraternities should stress, according to the 1956 ence, attended by Sam Ellis, pres- mi,m V J Ellis Courtesy Lincoln Journal Schuyler ident, Bob Schuyler, secretary and Frank Hallgren, Associate Dean of Men at the University. They include first, the obligation of the groups to enhance and pro mote the name and the respect of their institutions. Second, the objectives of t h e fraternity systems should be in Social Side: Pinnings: Joyce Webster, Pi Beta Phi sophomore in Teachers from Kear ney, to Jim Junge Phi Delta Theta sophomore in Architecture from Lincoln.

Third, a careful selection of Interfraternity officers must be made and the out-going council should spend as much time as pos sible with the new officers. The theme of the convention, held from Nov. 28-30, was "The Responsibilities of the Interfrater nity Councils." The convention was divided into two sections. The National Grad uate Conference began Thursday, Nov. 29 and the National Under graduate met for the first time on Nov. 30. The program began with the in troduction of five outline papers by outstanding Interfraternity lead ers which pointed up the five ma jor -areas of Interfraternity Coun cil responsibilities. Each of the five areas were cov ered in panel discussions. They in cluded Scholarship, University Service, Social activities Commun ity and Fraternity Service. Delegates were divided into three panel groups according to the number of fraternities on then- campuses. Each of the discussions were led by outstanding men from various parts of the country, Schuyler said. Hall Speaks: J'ouFitialii y Lovj a I arses The Inside World Nebraska newspapers face the loss of many potential recruits to the Jqurnalism profession at two points after high school and upon graduation from college Dr. Wil liam E, Hall, Courtciy Miicota Star Dr. Hall director of the School f Jour School of Jour nalism, warned Nebraska As sociated Press newspaper members Fri- d a y, Novem ber 30. The aver age wage of $247 a month paid begin- ning reporteds in 1956 looks un attractive to the high school graduate who is told he can get an average of $350 a month in the fields of business and industry," Dr. Hall pointed out, This accounts largely for the fact journalism school enrollments throughout the country have shown decreases in six of the last eight years, including 1956-57, Dr. Hall said. Those youngsters who choose journalism despite salary differ ences, Dr. Hall asserted find upon Ag Honorary To Recognize Top Scholars Thirty - six University students will be honored Dec. 11 for high scholarship by Gamma Sigma Del ta, national honor society of agri culture. The University chapter of the fraternity will hold a recognition dinner for the students, all of whom are enrolled in the College of Agriculture. The dinner will be at 6 p.m. in the Food and Nutri tion building on the college campus. Those to be honored include: Walter Akeson, Warren Babcock, Oscar Burt, James Christensen, Richard Covault, Robert Cunning ham, Robert Dannert, Raymond DeBower, Kenneth Evans.

I leaving college that they can reach the $350 average salary by by passing newspapers and going di' rectly into agricultural and indus tr ial Journalism or into public re lations. "Faced with this competition," Nebraska newspapers must revise their wage scales for beginners sharply upwards or settle for the bottom third of each year's graduation class," Dr. Hall told AP managing editors. Dr. Hall suggested daily news papers in Nebraska follow the lead oi the Cincinnati Times-Star which has provided in its latest contract that graduates of accredited jour nalism schools start at the third- year scale of $70 a week. Suggested, also, by Dr. .Hall, vas the promotion and backing of scholarship by local newspapers As a benefactor of local youth, continued Dr. Hall, the sponsoring newspaper gains public approval from its readers for this service to ttie community and brings jour nalism into the public eye; and will promote good public relations for the newspaper. Furthering the second -point of his talk, Dr. Hall, went on to say that, "Too many of us today fail to recognize the fact that the high school campus is where we win or lose future journalists. Unless we enter the recruiting battle at this point of initial career contact, our losses in terms of top flight graduates will continue to mount." "In making such recommends tions," Dr. Hall concluded, "I rec ognize an equal responsibility on our part to produce graduates who can and will measure up to rigid professional standards."
