South American Schools Tough,
Opportunities Short, Feder Says
South American schools are
much more difficult than
those in the United States be
cause of the limited educa
tional opportunities.
Dr. Ernest Feder, associate
professor of agricultural eco
nomics, expressed this belief
after teaching for 11 months
in South America.
'Screening Tremendous'
The screening of possible
university students in South
America is a tremendous
process compared to univer
sities in the United States,
Dr. Feder said.
Financial resources and tal
ent count much toward being
accepted into a university
One year ago at this time
Dr. Feder was at the Univer
sity of Chile in Santiago,
awaiting the start of the first
semester and the beginning of
his term of instruction under
a Fulbright scholarship.
The German-born economist
taught in the graduate school
of economics. He also deliv
ered two series of lectures
at the University of Buenos
Aires in Argentina and the
University of Lima in Cuczo.

They discuss social and po
litical problems more frankly
and openly and on the whole
are more interested in them,
he said. This is particularly
true at the University of Chile
where financial status is low.
For example, at the begin
ning of the school year, Dr.
Feder said, he was instruct
ing 14 agricultural economic
graduate students. He ended
the year with three students.
Because they were unable to
work full time and attend
school, the students were
forced to drop.
When choosing between
making money and going to
school to earn a degree, the
money is usually chosen since
quite often there is not much
of an alternative.
College graduates are in the
minority, Dr. Feder con
tinued. A high percentage of
the people do not go to school
at all and an equally high
percentage drop out before
they reach high school.
Although he found the
school system in Chile very
bewildering, he considered

Storm Gives Repeat
Of 1957 Performance
The blizzard cam a little early this year.
In 1957, it was March 26 when classes were called off
because of a snowstorm.
The 1957 storm, called the worst spring blizzard in the
history of Nebraska, hit the state on a week-end.
Classes were canceled Monday.
Many University students were stranded in their home
towns, unable to return to campus.
At that time, it was said that bad weather had not
forced the University to call off its classes for 8 to 10 years.
Then, as yesterday, the storm caused hazardous traf
fic conditions throughout the state.
The farmers, then as now, were satisfied to see the
snow. I..
"Crop observers in 1957 estimated that the moisture
might be worth more than 50 million dollars to Nebraska's
This year's moisture, according to A. V. Nordquist,
State Federal Crop Statistician, will help the farmers who
needed it for their crops.
Winter wheat will benefit by the storm, he said. The
snow will aid the fanners

Ivy Day Sing Rules Announced-
No Matching Outfits
For Women's Groups
By Sondra Whalen
Matcning outfits have been
eliminafed for the Ivy Day
AWS announced today that
any group wearing like out
fits especially purchased for
the sing will be disqualified.
Groups having instrumental
accompaniment will also be
Wasteful Buying
"We added this rule be
cause we felt it was such a
waste for 25 girls in 20 some
houses to buy dresses just
alike that they probably won't
ever wear again," Polly Doer
ing, newly elected president
of AWS, said.
Another new rule states that
no song that has been used
by a group within the last
three years may be used by
that group again.
"We felt this would elimi
nate repetition and the pos
sibility of a house taking a
song they had previously won
with and singing it again,"
Miss Doering explained.
Must Be Ready
The last rule change says
that any group not ready to
go on at the exact scheduled
time of performance will be
disqualified from participa
tion. Miss Doering said that this
most of the South American
He added that he didn't be
gin teaching until two or three
weeks after the semester had
begun because neither the in
structors nor the students
knew where they were to go
for classes, what time, nor
which days.
Language Versatility
The versatility of the South
American people in languages
amazed the economist. Once
while attending a party with
a "dozen or so" other guests
he conversed in German, Eng.
lish, French and Spanish.
"Very sober" is the term
for the male mode of dress
in Chile. On the whole, the
Chilean dress was not too
Americanized, he said. Ameri
can women in Chile often
complained that the native
women wore their clothes un
necessarily tight, he con
mented. Dr. Feder attended the Uni
versity of Geneva in Switzer
land where he received his
PhD. He also did graduate
work at the" University of
California. Before coming to
Nebraska five years ago he
taught at South Dakota State. ,

IFC Clarifies Rule,
Hears Rush Plans
Limit Set on Recent Action;
Two New Schedules Read

were no objections from IFC
members, the executive com

change was designed to keep
the Sing from being so long.
Other rules for the Inter
sorority Sing, as well as the
changed ones include:
1. All organized groups of
women at the University may
participate in the Sing, except
honorary groups.
2. Not more than twenty

nor less than eight. Fresh
men women may participate.
3. All members must be car
rying at least twelve hours
this semester with no failures
in the 12 hours.
4. No professional person
may assist in the preparation
of your song. Non-professional
alumnae help may be
used. This rule is strictly en-1
5. No group shall wear like
outfits especially purchased
for the sing or have instru
mental accompaniment. Any
group doing so will be dis
qualified. 6. No medley of songs, no
songs longer than 5 minutes in
length, nor any song you
have sung in previous sings
years can be used this year.
7. The director must re
main "active" in the group
participating and be regularly
enrolled in the University.
8. All groups must remain
after their participation on
Ivy Day for recall by the
judges if necessary.
9. Any group not ready to
go on at the exact scheduled
time of performance will be
disqualified from participa
tion. A song leader's meeting for
all participating groups will
be announced at a later date,
Miss Doering added.

rushees to affect only NebraS'
ka students.
Dates Limited
The ruling in question lim
its the number of dates during
the school year in which high
school seniors may be rushed
by a fraternity.
Cadwallader stated that the
reason for the interpretation
was that out of state high
school seniors seldom had the
privilege of visiting the cam
pus and when they did they
should have the opportunity to
visit fraternities.
The tentative rush week
schedules were presented by
John Glynn, IFC vice presi
dent and chairman of the IFC
rush committee.
Two Schedules
Glynn presented two sched
ules, one calling for a rush
week beginning Thursday
morning and ending Monday
noon and the other starting
Thursday afternoon.
The proposed schedules in
crease the number of open
houses from four to eight The
length of the open houses was
cut to 1 hours on the pro
posed schedules.
Also new in the proposed
rush week setup is a system
by which bid cards are given
to rushee's by a fraternity de
siring them to pledge.
Duplicate Cards
Duplicates of these bid cards
are kept by the fraternity and
sent into the IFC office be
fore the time of pledging.
These are matched with the
rushee's cards when he pledg
Under the proposed system,
the rushee would pledge the
fraternity at the close of the
meditation period and then go
to the house of his choice.
The meditation period has
also been lengthened in the
suggested schedule.

"We cant keep ahead of
the snow," Fowler comment
ed yesterday afternoon, "but
if the wind stops blowing
well have pretty good paths
by morning.
"Right now the snow blows
in as quickly as we plow it
out," he said.
Arrangements were made
with a construction company
to help the University haul
the snow away. No extra
men were hired to combat
the heavy snow, but the men
were to work extra hours in
order to clear the campus.
"The -snow is so heavy
we're going to have to change
blades on one of the
tractors," John Harris,
grounds foreman on city
campus, said.
A V-shaped blade will be
nsed to clear the heavy snow,
he explained,
"'This is the heaviest snow
we've had on campus this
season," Harris commented.
Five tractors were used to
clear city campus; three
tractors and a highway grad
er were used on ag campus.
The tractors with buckets
cleared the walks; those with
blades worked on the streets.
Work crews (13 men on
city and 10 on Ag campus)
reported to work around 4
a.m. Thursday and contin
ued working until 5 p.m. in
order to clear the snow.

The top snow was dry ana
blew across the paths as fast
as they were cleared yester
day, Billings said. The east
west paths were especially
difficult to clear.
Since the Air Base uses a
lot of equipment and trucks
to clear snow, the campus
doesn't have enough equip
ment to haul away the snow
as it is cleared, Billings said.
The snow will be piled in
the lots until Saturday when
it will be hauled away, he
