ROTC Ball To Begin
NU Formal Season
The Military Ball, slated for
Dec. 7 at Pershing Municipal
Auditorium, will be the official
epenine of the University's 1957
formal social season.
Every effort is being made to
make the Ball the most social
event of the year, commented Col
onel Ernest Liebmann of A rmy
ROTC, assistant chairman.
The dance, beginning at 8 p.m.
and ending at 12:30 a.m. will
feature Ralph Marterie and his
20-piece orchestra. The Marterie
band won top honors as the most
popular dance band in America's
colleges in a 1955 poll.
Intermission Program
Army ROTC has planned a spe
cial program for intermission.
"Around the World," will be given
during the time Marterie and his
band take their break and thus
will not take any of the planned
dancing time, he said.
ine live le at urea acts are
Dance of India," "Commonwealth
Calypso Si n g e r s," "Phillipine
Bamboo Dance," "Coeds Trio,"
and a Latvian dance group.
During the evening the honorary
commandant will be presented.
Monday and Tuesday, members of
ROTC voted for one of the three
candid ates in their particular
branch of army, navy or air force,
Liebmann said.
On Dec. 5th, an all-University
election will be held to choose one
of the three finalists to be pre
sented at the Military Ball 'from
Jan Shrader, Joan Riha, Reba
Kinne; (air force) Anne Reynolds,
Barbara Britton, Marty Epsen;
(navy) Charlene Ferguson, Sara
Hubka and Nadine Calvin.
Liebmann reported that ticket
aales are going well. Tickets,
priced at $3.50 are now on sale
in each of the organized houses,
the men's dorms, the Union, Ag
Union, Walt's Music Store, Dietze
Music House, Hal Bowers Drugs,
McCabe Music Store, Mayo Drug
Store, Bethany Drug, American
region Han, Havelock Pharmacy
oi aimons, Magee's, Gold's,
"uvuiu-awanson and Miller and
Paine, he stated.
Local Support
Local businessmen are support
ing the Ball and members of the
community are assisting in the
preparations. Liebmann said that
business firms are of valuable as
sistance in furnishing the decora
tions for the auditorium. The dec
orations will include everything
from table cloths to hurricane
lamps to a red carpet for the hon
ored procession.
A huge searchlight will be
placed in front of the auditorium,
he said.
KXXJS will broadcast the high
lights of the Ball throughout the
evening, while Channel 10 plans
to telecast between 9:30 and 10:30
p.m. This will give parents an op
portunity to witness a University
social affair, since they are un
able to attend themselves, Lieb
mann commented.

Saturday, Nebraska finished the
worst football season in the his
tory of the school. The Huskers
finished last in the Big Eight for
the first time.
The seed for reconstruction of
the shattered Nebraska football
fortunes were already being sown
among the crowd outside the sta
dium, however. Men wearing the
cream emblem of the University
on scarlet sweaters were crying,
"Join the After Point club mis
ter; only a dollar."
The After Point club or, as its
legal name goes, The Point After
Touchdown Club, is an organiza
tion for anyone wishing to con
tribute to Cornhusker athletics.

bership is a stockholder.""
When asked where the idea for
the club originated, Niebaum re
plied, "Some people downtown had
already started the Touchdown
Club, but memberships sold for
S100 and $25. We thought students
and other people who couldn't af
ford these high rates would like
to help. After all, it's everybody's
football team."
Members in the club receive thy
right to carry a small sticker with
the words "After Point Club" in
the windshield of their car. "They
also get the satisfaction of know
ing they are helping the Univer
sity and the state," Niebaum said.
As the interview with Niebaum
neared its end. he said, "Say, will
you tell all those guys that sold
memberships for us last Saturday
thank you?"
We sure will Maury.

The club was chartered by five
downtown businessmen and two
University students. The downtown
businessmen are: Joe Y e t m an,
Bob Wagner, Jack Ca m pbell,
Vince Collura and Tom Laury.
The two students are Maury Nie
baum and Dick Gustafson.
"We founded the club to give
the students and the little guys
a chance to contribute to Nebras
ka's football program," Niebaum
said in a Daily Nebraskan inter
view, Monday.
Apparently other people thought
this was a good idea too for the
N-Club and the 80 state chapters
of the junior chamber of com
merce took over sponsorship of
the organization. The Jaycees will
start their outstate membership
drive this week.
Some towns have already begun
their membership programs in
cluding Scottsbluff, Norfolk, Grand
Island, Hastings and Omaha. The
Lincoln drive started at the game
last Saturday.

Students' opinions c'iffer accord
ing to their colleges in the recent
Teacher's College-Arts and Science
controversy, according to a Daily
Nebraskan survey.
Biff Keyes, Arts & Science, said
"Lack of teachers of science,
math and languages seems to im
ply that we should encourage
those interested in these fields in
alleviating the need for teachers;
therefore, we should encourage
those people to prepare for these
fields by knowing the Bubject mat
ter and not by bogging them down
with needless 'common sense'
Judy Douglas, also in ArtB &
Science, declared, "I have been
told by students in both colleges
that the majority of education
courses could and should be con
densed. Such a condensation would
allow education majors to take
more subject matter courses."
Barbara M;stn, in Teacher's
College, disagreed, saying, "If you
lower requirements of teaching,
you will lower the standards of
teaching. You may get more
teachers, but they will not be as
Sally Flanagan, Te a c h e r s
agreed with Miss Meston, saying,
"I think it would definitely hurt
teaching to take away professional
teaching courses. This would also
move the compiling and certifying
over to the registrar's office from
Teacher's College, which, I be
lieve, is unnecessary."
Jim Cole, Arts & Sciences, felt
thut anyone with the ability to
gain the necessary knowledge in
chemistry, for example, should be
allowed to do the teaching. He
fcaid, "It is more important to
know what you are teaching than
how to teach."
Chuck Wilson, also in Arts &
Science, agreed, declaring, "It is
impossible to teach what you don't
know, no matter how good of a
teacher you are." Both Cole and
Wilson believed that a teacher
should have the approval of the
department in which field he plans
to teach, as well as from Teach
er's College.
Bob Marks, in Business Admin
istration, remarked, "If we ar e
really concerned about turning out
educated minds, what we need is
educators, not teacherB. I feel
those who are truly interested in
educating would favor and have
the ability to take a more liberal
and broader curriculum.
Finally, Leroy Jack, Teachers
College, declared, "There is al
ways some controversy going on.
This will probably die In commit
tee." The controversy began when 11
Arts and Science professors stated
that to save America from Russia,
authority for the certification of
teachers should be Disced in the
subject matter departments that
give the students the basic knowl
edge which they will need to
The professors have submitted a
list of suggested improvements to
the Board of Regents. This list
includes the number of hours of
professional teaching education re
quired for certification be lowered,
the dual matriculation system be
abolished and temporary permits
be issued to those qualified in the
subject matter field but lacking
hours in professional education.
Frank Henzlik, Dean of the
Teacher s College, answered this
by declaring the student preparing
for high school teaching carries
from 85 to 105 required semester
hours of subject matter courses.
He also said that the 11 prufes
?" were "erroneous and biased"
in their statements.
The Board of Regents referred
the matter to committee.

The action was authorized by
the Board of Regent at their
meeting Saturday.
The group will analyze the pres

submitted by the 11 Arts and Sci
ences professors.
The committee's proposals and
recommendations will then be re

An amendment to include the
Board of Regents approval of the

fessors was not seconded.
The Chancellor told the Regents
that he proposed to work actively
with a committee of faculty rep
resentatives to study the petitions
which have been presented and to
report further to the Board as
soon as possible.
The proposals to be studied by
the committee, after its appoint
ment, include transfer of the rec
ommendation authority for teacher
certification to the Officer of
Registration and Records from the
Teachers College.
The Arts and Sciences erouc
also recommended cutting the
amount of teacher training cours
es from 18 hours required by the
Btate to 15 hours, and allow credit
for teaching done by the students
in their subject matter departments.
