Lincoln Girl's Life
Weather Throws Wrench in Daily Routine
By Sondra Whalen
Although the life of a freshman dorm
girl is much discussed, the life of a fresh
man Lincoln girl has been sadly neglected
to say the least.
One of the gravest problems this for
gotten soul faces is that no. one realizes
that there are such persons. Take as an
example a cold, snowy, December morn
ing. Our girl, whom we shall call Gwen
dolyn, is sleeping peacefully in her warm
bed when the alarm goes off at 7 a.m., a
half hour late, as usual.
Stunned Staring
She opens one eye and raises the shade
to discover a vast expanse of white. After
a minute or two of stunned staring, she
realizes that it has snowed during the
Gwendolyn Is overjoyed! School will be
called off! She can go back to her warm
bed! With glad cries, she pulls the covers
up to her nose and prepares to go back to
sleep. Alas, the sound of the radio and her
mother's voice Interrupt her slumber.
"All schools in the Lincoln area have
been called off except for the University
of Nebraska which will hold classes as
N;? Nightmare
Gwendolyn is sure that this must be a
bad dream and that if she shuts her eyes,
it will go away. Her mother's voice per
sists, however; and finally Gwendolyn
crawls out of bed and staggers to break
fast.' Now the fun begins. How is our Gwen
dolyn, going to get to school? She could
drive the car, as she does every other
morning. But the snow is 14 inches deep,
and because it is only Dec. 17, neither
snow tires or chains have been put on the
The battery is also dead, her mother
announces, because Gwendolyn left the

Not Ideal
to eliminate one choice. She
could ride the bus. Of course! The bus!
Why didn't she think of that sooner? The
radio now gives further information. It
seems that the busses are running an hour
behind schedule.
Neighbors No Help
Well, she could always get a ride with
the neighbors. A glance out the window
discloses that one neighbor has run into
a car parked in front of his house, and
that the other is stuck in a snowdrift
down the street.
The only way left is to hitch up the
family cocker spaniel and go to school by
dog sled, or to wait on the corner In hopes
of a bus.
She decides on the latter, and so, after
donning numerous coats, bearskins, boots
and other necessary apparel, she starts
out for the bus stop. After waiting the pre
scribed hour, she spies a bus, weaving
and sliding toward her.
Short' Ride
She and the busdriver are the only occu
pants of the vehicle and have a nice chat
on the way downtown. Forty-five minutes
later they arrive at 13th and O, where
Gwendolyn stumbles roff and begins her
trek to the campus.
The walk doesn't take too long, consider
ing that our Gwendolyn has fallen down
twice, and stepped in four snowdrifts. Too,
the back of her neck seems to be frost
bitten where two pounds of snow fell off
a branch down her back.
In fact, she has made such good time
that she is going to be able to go to her
11 a.m. class! Encouraged, she lurches
into the room, brushes snow out of her
eyes and is greeted by a sign on the black
board. "There will be no class this morning,
or lab this afternoon, due to the fact that
Professor. Greensleeves could not get to
school this morning."
