Celebration '85:

By Sondra Whalen
Although Charter Day 1959
will be observed quietly, this
will probably be more agree
able with the Lincoln populace
than an 1885 Charter Day ef
fort. With the discovery that the
student newspaper, "The Hes

$20 in debt, staff members de
cided a Charter Day celebra

put them in the black, as well
as showing proper University

versity home football games.
Tom Neff, IFC treasurer
and member of Delta Tau
Delta presented the resolu
tion regulating pledge sneaks.
He explained that his fra
ternity had voted by a large
majority Monday to have him
take this action. (Delta Tau
Delta was recently involved
in a sneak incident in which
an active was kidnaped.)
The ruling requires the
pledge class to register infor
mation about the sneak at
least one week prior to the
date of the sneak with the
executive Council of the IFC
Pledge sneaks disrupting
classes are prohibited.
Amendment defeated
An amendment to make the
exceptions to the high school
rushing rule include the Fri
days before home football
games was the only change
proposed in the drafted pro
posals. Neff emphasized in propos
ing the pledge sneak regula
tion that this In no way would
mean that the IFC was con
doning or encouraging pledge
"It would only act as a re
strictive measure upon those
who plan to take them." Neff
The question of enforcement
was dominant in the discus
sion of these restrictions and
two general plans were men
tioned. Bob Krumme, IFC secre
tary, told the Daily Nebras
kan that the IFC executive
Committee has the power to
enforce any rulings which the
IFC makes.
Any executive committee
member must accept written
charges of infraction when
they are presented to him,
Krumme said.
Come From Within
Bob Blair, Sigma Alpha
Epsilon representative, an
swered the question tf en
forcement with the statement,
"Any enforcement of these
rules will have to come from
"Unless we have the inten
tion of really obeying these
regulations to the letter,"
Blair said, "we should not
pass them."
Blair pointed out that most
of the voting members of IFC
were house presidents and
that they thus had the power
to enforce these regulations
explicitly in their respective
ed and tickets were sold with'
high hearts and hopes.
Then the roof fell in, or
rather the show fell through.
The German play was the last
to withdraw, leaving the show
sponsors two alternatives, ac
cording to the paper.
". . . the board had to ack
nowledge, their inability to get
up a show or commit suicide
individually and collectively."
They avoided both solutions
however, and instead began
advertising even more inten
sely. The show was for stu
dents only, they broadcast,
city people should come "only
at their Deril."
Naturally, the "city people"
came in droves.
After making sure the hall
was filled and all 15 cents and
2 for 25 cents tickets were
sold, the students proceeded
to climb down ropes, out the
windows and through back
doors, leaving a small orches
tra playing the same song for
the fifth time.

left as the audience grew
more and more restless uid
