The five houses are: Phi Kappa Psi, Phi Delta Theta, Sigma Phi Epsilon, Alpha Tau Omega and Sigma Chi. They were adjudged to have the best skits in a field cf twelve particVants Thursday night. Judges for the skits were Smidt, Miss Mary Jean Mulvaney, assistant professor of physical edu cation, Jerry Brownfield, Keith Smith, Bob Slater and Irwin Hatha way, professor of dairy husbandry. The Phi Psi skit is entitled "In side Russia Confidential Hush Hush Shhh Unexpurgated." It dials with the problems involved when fallout from atomic tests starts ruinning English todies. When Russian vod ka is also affected, the world comes to the realization that atomic tests must be ended for the common good. "Three Paupers of Paris" is the title of the Phi Deit entry.

Instead of ill patients re porting directly to Student Health, the nurses make daily rounds of all University dormitories, sorori ties, fraternities, and other organ ized houses to check records and conditions of the patients. About 800 students have been immunized for Asian flu and these students who earlier attended training, sessions assist in handling mild flu cases in each organized house, Dr. Fuenning explained. Housemothers and food handlers also have been inoculated. The immunized students take temperatures and pulse of ill stu dents every four hours; serve meals and medications according to standing orders; and record any change in the patient's condition, such as complaint of sore throat, headache, or extreme fatigue and weakness. Any marked rise in temperature after the fourth or fifth day of illness or a complaint of chest moan their fate but come to realize that Paris is the best possible place for this to happen giving the skit a happy ending.

The skit has a I Scotch background with two rival i clans meeting for the annual curl I ing and drinking match. The rival ry is at first bitter but friendship reigns in the end.

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 lege and Pharmacy College sen iors, nurses in school working to ward a degree, and Red Crow and student volunteers. The Health Services has avail able on a two-hour notice: 3,000 steel cots, mattresses, and com forters and 2,400 sheets. FBI Awards NU Professor Recognition Dr. James Reinhardt, professor of criminology at the University, has received a certificate of ap preciation for his 11th year of in structing at the FBI National Academy m Washington, D. C, which was held last week. The award was presented by FBI direc- 4 tor, J. Edgar Hoover. 4 ? Dr. R e 1 n- hardt delivered two lectures on "Law Enforce ment and So i JU.

T.nriv Svbil Tenterden. played by Betty Lester, deserves special comment on an excellent perform ance in her third act. Her expres sion was without flaw and she dis played a practiced change of mood. , Bonna Tebo, playing Comtesse 1 de la Briere, did a good job of her light mood in the third act, but she lacked the finishing touch es. Many times in her exits the audience was' on the verge of applause, but her acting did not quite merit it. Len Schropfer, playing Mr. Ven ables, left much to be desired in his interpretation of the character in the second act, but in the third act gave a decent performance. He was a little too distracting for a supporting role. The casting as a whole made the play live, the music was well suited to the production, and a general friendly atmosphere was precipitated. The honorary producer ceremo nies added a certain fitting open ing nisht touch and did not de tract in the last from the theatri cal atmosphere. I hope the members of the Uni versity community which have not already done so, talte the oppor tunity to see this production which will run through Sunday. By GEORGE MOYER Copy Editor 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 o BftlBf BEBM Vol. 32 No. 24 KNUS Radio Station Plans New Contest KNUS has announced a contest to select an official emblem to be used on the University radio sta tion's stationery, advertisements and other business materials, Bob Wirz, KNUS staff member said.

University Theater: Untried Actors Here's Your Chancel By DICK SHUGRUE 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 goat." "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. I Dr. Charles Lown of the Speech Department will handle the tech nicle end of "Teahouse." Stiver I said that already they have begun in the east side. That would put that some 400 tickets still remained to be sold and could be purchased at the Coliseum today for the regu lar Big Eight price of $3.50 apiece. "They are sections 00 through MM0 Missou Rally There will be a pep rally In front of the Missouri Student Union at 12:45 p.m. Saturday ac cording to Bill McQuistan, Yell King.

The Uni Lincoln, Critics Claim Duke's Music 'Impossible To Duplicate' By EMMIE LIMPO 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 need a large crew for the play," he commented. John Patrick, author of "Tea house" has written "The Hasty Heart," "The Willow and I," "The Curious Savage," and "Lo and Be hold." "Teahouse" has become so popu- ', 't r y "sc. . w - .'4 fWf f Honorary Producers Named Honorary Producers for the 1957-58 season were presented Wednesday night -on the Howell Memorial Stage.

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 Nebraska 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 lar, Stiver noted, that it has been 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." '5," i .3 jr- V M 1 Kay Nielson, "Miss Nebraska of 1957," Governor Victor Ander son, and Mayor Bennett Martin were en hand for the presenta tion.

Friday, October 25, 1957 known, continues to draw well, 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 . . ."
