New Fraternity Officers Confer
Pi Xi Comes Out Into Open:
By HICKABOUT CRANE
Special Writer ,
The University Theater's Satur
day evening production of "Who
Knows the Right Name" was terri
ble. The play was so bad there wasn't
any audience to watch the play
except yours truly. (I had to go to
review the darn thing).
One of the problems of the play
was there were too many people
portrayed in the play. There were
so many characters,' and I mean
characters, .that one did not know
what was going on. There was no
unity and the fact that the director
kept running on and off stage made
the audience of one sick.
Chancellor Hardin congratulated
active members of Pi Xi frater
nity Sunday as he presented them
with their official charter and
gave them "open status on the

president of the fraternity, "The
work you boys have done to create
interest in the University from
people off the campus is invaluable
We can hardly fail to recognize
the top-flight publicity and chum
my public relations showered on
NU because of you fellows."
Pi Xi, which had operated on
a slim budget for many years,
had finally come back to "the
black" 'shortly after a series of

He said that Pi Xi would be

"Who's better qualified to han

Hall Green queried. He said that
following the special dinner Sun
day evening the members of the
fraternity would all be invited by
another local alum living on Have

"After all," president Sensen re
marked, "it's so silly to keep sub

ricular activities. We all know our
alums have made it. to the top
even if they were floating. So why
not give guys a chance to start
