All serious cases of flu are
transferred to the Student Health
hospital, where the University doc
tors are concentrating their ef
forts, Dr. Fuenning explained.
Dr. Fuenning said that the trend
in the past two weeks has been
for the number of flu cases to
rise during the first part of the
week and then taper off toward
the latter part. On the average,
the flu cases have been of only
two or three days' duration.
Dr. Fuenning reported that in
case of an outbreak of epidemic
proportions, temporary emergency
wards will be set up in the base
ment, recreation room, ..and tele
vision room of the Selleck dor
mitory and in the ballroom of the
Residence Halls for Women.
One nurse will be in charge of
each ward, assisted by Dental Col

iors, nurses in school working to
ward a degree, and Red Crow
and student volunteers.

And away we go!
That's the cry being heard all
over campus as Nebraska students
make ready for the official unoffi
cial annual migration to Missouri
for the Husker-Tiger gridiron clash
this weekend.
Indications are, however, that
this cry will be heard much less
frequently this year than last. In
'56, when migration was to the
land of tall mountains and 3.2,
over 6,000 Husker students and
alumni boarded buses, cars and
special trains to follow the Big Red
to Boulder.
This year though, University
Business Manager for Athletics, A.
J. Lewandowski, reports that only
about 600 tickets or one tenth as
many as were hawked for Colorado
have been sold for Missouri. Since
40 of these were in a block to
Kansas City alumni, that means
only a b o u t 560 were sold to stu
dents. Lewandowski also stated

University Theater:
Untried Actors Here's Your Chancel
Editorial Editor
For University students who have
been afraid of trying out for the
University Theater for lack of ex
perience or anything else, an op
portunity has come up which prob
ably won't present itself for many
a moon.
Harry Stiver, an instructor in the
Department of Speech and Dra
matic Arts, who is directing the
second play of the theater stasoi;
said that anyone is welcome to
tryout for the play.
The reason: The play is the hi
larious comedy "Teahouse of the
August Moon" which had such a
striking success on Broadway and
on the screen, and the cast calls
for a great number of people who
can't be understood!
And because there are parts
galore for orientals and persons
other than Caucasian stock, Stiver
is hoping that a great number of
foreign students at the University
will take an interest in the play.
"We'll need about 30 people,"
Stiver said. "And tryouts are
scheduled Tuesday and Wednesday
in the Howell Theater."
Stiver said that most people know
the play or the movie version
pretty well. "This may be an add
ed incentive for them to tryoutt. At
least we hope so," he added.
There are 18 men's parts, eight
women's roles, three children's
parts and Stiver said the produc
tion calls for "one jeep and a
"So it looks like we'll need peo
ple of all ages and all descriptions.
There's even a part for someone
who's rather large the pot-bellied
police chief. He'll have to be a
rassler," Stiver quipped.
Stiver added that there would bs
no rehearsal on the production un
til after Homecoming. The piay is
scheduled for the Howell Theater
Dec. 11 through 14.

Critics Claim Duke's Music
'Impossible To Duplicate'
Staff Writer
The 1957 Homecoming Dance,
which will feature Duke Ellington
and his orchestra, is to be held
on Nov. 3 from 8-12 p.m. in the
Coliseum, according to Gordon
Warner, Corn Cob president.
Duke, his music and his orches
tra have been, from the beginning,
a package of talent impossible to
duplicate or imitate, although the
ranks of Ellington's imitators grow
from year to year.
Few big bands can claim, as
his can, that it has played in ev
ery part of the United States, Can
ada and Europe to every kind of
audience, young and old, highbrow
and lowbrow, in dance halls and
concert halls, "in theaters arid au
ditoriums . . . and once, in Paris,
in a bombproof shelter and over
radio and television.
No matter what Duke's repetoire 1
for the occasion, it is sure to be
a surprise in experience and en
joyment and certain of acclaim.
Ellington has contributed more
to modern music, in originality,
melodic material and arranging
technique, than any other con
temporary. His manner of writ
plotting the many problems which
the comedy presents.
"It probably means that well

he commented.

Curious Savage," and "Lo and Be

Honorary Producers Named

versity marching band will also
attend the game and participate
in the half time show.
The game itself will be a con
tinuation of a long standing series.
Nebraska and Missouri first met
in 1892 and battled to a scoreless
tie. Nebraska's first victory came
in 1897 and since then the Huskers
have managed to dominate the
series. Nebraska holds a 28-19-3
edge over the Tigers. The Big Red
have snaged the last three games
including a 15-14 homecoming
thriller in memorial stadium last
year. Coincidentally, this year is
homecoming in Columbia too.
So far Missouri has shown a good
deal of punch this year. The Tigers
have amassed a 3-1-1 record in
their first five games including an
upset victory over SMU, 7-6. Last
week they whopped Iowa State, 34
13. Iowa State had previously
gained .a tie with Syracuse.
Statistically, the two campuses
stack up much the same. The town
of Columbia, where the Missou
ing In enigmatic mood and quick
silver rhythms has for subtle-byplay
of reeds against brasses, and
piano against orchestra remained
an individual art. His songs are
as fresh today as the day they
were written.
Most musicians agree that one
of the reasons the Duke's music
is as provocative today as when
it was first beaten out in a night
club, is that an Ellington tune is
always ahead of its time. "Soli
tude," "Sophisticated Lady," and
"Mood Indigo" are still new to the
public as are his more recent "I'm
Beginning To See the Light."
Duke, the one composer whose
works always remain as "stand
ards" has always written in a
style and idiom so much ahead
of his time that the listening pub
lic is forever just catching up with
songs he wrote years ago.
Perhaps the compliment which
really feathers the cap of a mu
sician is having the admiration of
his colleagues bandleaders and
musicians who take busmen's hol
idays listening to the Duke as the
standard of excellence.
Downbeat music magazine says
of him: "Duke Ellington, suave,
polished, and internationally

I translated and successfully pro-
I duced in practically every foreign
area of the world.
Stiver explained that the reason
it was not important for many in
the cast to be understood is that
the inhabitants of Okinawa haven't
learned the English language yet
during the play. "So that means
the more gibberish the better."

particularly on college date and
one-niter locations, where people
still come to hear good music as
well as dance to it.
The sounds and the arrange
ments have varied little over the
years and the Ellington personal
ity continues to win admirers."
According to Dave Brubeck, "It '
is the rare artist who has the
imagination to continually meet
the challenge of change. Duke
Ellington who predates swing has
not only met this challenge, but
projects into the future."
Life magazine commented on
him: "Suave Duke Ellington has
been apart from, and usually
ahead of, most jazz fashions since
his start in 1927. His elegantly
shaped compositions, like "Mood
Indigo", sound best when played
by the Duke's own big, growly
voiced band."
The N.Y. Journal American
newspaper summed everything up
in one sentence: "The Duke is
considered a genius by some de
votees while others settle for the
understatement that he is merely
great . . ."
