The Summer Nebraskan
Union Food Services Offer ii.ecs,
Parlies, Banquets For Hungry Students
"An army travels on its stom
ach", is a favorite military say
ing which goes quite as well for
students. Coffee breaks and cokes
dates, as well as parties, .ban
quets and balls have become part
of the University tradition.
But few realize the amount of
time, planning and personel it
takes to provide these services.
The Union Food Service, under
the direction of Steffi Drucker,
is responsible for every cup of
coffee and plate of food served
by the Union.
The Service, hectic enough dur
ing summer sessions, reached its
frantic climax during the first
few weeks" when Boys State, Girls
State, All State as well as the reg
ular flow of customers were the
responsibility of Steffi.
With her two aids, Marilyn
Bickman and Lois DeBelly, she
planned, bought, processed, pro
duced and sold food for 15,000
meals each for the three high
school groups alone.
In addition, from 1,200 to 1,500
persons are served each day in the
Crib, 500 to 600 in the R o u n d
Up Room and several hundred in
the Main Dining Room.
The Crib, which is the grill,

serves about 350 hamburgers and
150 pounds of potatoes each day
during its 6:30 a.m. to 10:15 p.m.
operations, Steffi said.
The RoundUp Room, as the caf
eteria is called, is located at the
west end of the main corridor of
the Union and provides a more
varied meal in quieter surround
ings, Steffi explained. For the first
time last year this room was
opened for a "coffee break time"
during the morning and afternoon.
These hours will be continued this
summer, she said.
On the second floor the Main
Dining Room is open Monday
through Friday for lunches, accord
ing to Steffi.
Students or faculty members
may reserve tables for groups
under twelve- who wish to have
a iancheon meeting without re
s iving a room, she explained.
Menues are almost completely
changed during the summer ses
sion, Steffi explained. The new
menues are geared to the older
students. Considerably more fruits
and vegetables are served, such
items as mashed potatoes and
gravy are almost completely cut

Fashion as I see it
Studying during the sum
mer is hard enough but
when the heat comes it
makes it worse. White Stag
has the answer in cool
sports wear good for both
studying and playing.
The top is known as the
-Dock Walloper." It is
White Stag's classic pull
over boatneck shirt of all
combed Cotton Lisle. It is
sleeveless with horizontal
stripes and comes in fash
ionable colors dyed to
match the shorts. You can
wear it in or out and still
look neat and fresh.
Along with the shirt White
Stag has these jamaica
shorts of the famous wind
splashed sailcloth. These
fashionable uncuffed shorts
have the famous Sailmaker
stitch on the waistband and
on the two front pockets.
This cool idea for study
and play is in Gold's Sec
ond floor sportswear.
Remember it's Gold's for
the latest in all sportswear.
See you there.
