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 there. 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.

Agriculture. dents 'hard working and very intelligent." 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. Dropouts 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 the country "well ahead of 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 farmers. 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 their fields.

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 disqualified. 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 universties." 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. , when they start to move into IFC Clarifies Rule, Hears Rush Plans Limit Set on Recent Action; Two New Schedules Read Clarification of an existing rusn rule and proposal of an all new rush week schedule were given in IFC Wednesday night. IFC president Gary Cadwal lader announced that if there were no objections from IFC members, the executive com mittee would interpret the re 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 five girls, including the direc tor, may represent any group, 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 forced. Disqualification 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.

Hardin Confers, Undergrade Rest By Marilyn Coffey The snow came but the classes didnt. Jubilant students got the word about 7 a.m. yesterday morning about their second weather-caused school holi day in two years as Chan cellor Clifford Hardin made the decision to let out morn i n g undergraduate lecture classes. Later, afternoon classes also were cut down by the storm. Radios Contacted Chancellor Hardin, after conferring with the deans of several of the colleges, de cided that morning classes would be called off, and Ra dio stations were . contacted in order to broadcast the news as quickly as possible to students and faculty. Jublilation was the general student reaction to the broadcast, according to stu dent reports. University offices, library cent ruling on high school 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 es. 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. IFC Slate To Be Set Next Week Nominations for Interfrater nity Council officers must be in by Msrch 11. IFC president Gary Cadwal lader said the announcement of nominations concerns any house wishing to have a can didate considered for the slate. The slate is drawn up by the executive committee of the IFC. Slate Announcement The slate will be announced at the next meeting, March 19, Cadwallader said. Nomi nations may be made from the floor. The four officers making up the executive committee are president, vice president, sec retary, and treasurer. An amendment proposed Wednesday states that no house may have an officer of the IFC for more than two consecutive years. Agreement The executive committee will operate under this amendment, Cadwal 1 a d e r said. Under this provision, mem bers of Delta Tau Delta and Beta Theta Pi would be in eligible to hold office in the IFC next year. and laboratories remained opened as usual. As the morning passed, close check was kept on th storm, and when the Weather Bureau predicted that th storm would continue into the afternoon, afternoon classes were cancelled also. About 11 a.m., the an nouncement was broadcast, The difficulty of travelinff to campus plus the problem of parking cars on the snowy streets and lots nrovided the basis for the decision to can cel classes, James Pittenger the Chancellor's assistant ex- planed. Many students as well as faculty do not live on the campus. Mght classes were can celled, also, because of the weatner. No parkin? tickets were is sued sesterdav. according to the campus police, although they did try to prevent cars from blocking driveways and streets. The men in the division of buildings and grounds worked dunne most of the night clearing the snow from campus, Charles Fowler, di rector of the division, said. Fowler hoped to be able t clear some of the parking lots for the Oklahoma-Nebraska game. Snow Leads "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. Streets Plowed Campus streets were plowed Wednesday night and again after the game last night, Chester Billings,, divi sion of Buildings and grounds, said. 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 explained. 'The biggest trouble is cars. We have an awful time clearing the lots when cars are parked in them," Billings said. Exam Study Asks Student Support The Student Council final exam committee neeas stu dent support in order to get the final exam period length ended, a council member said Wednesday. Chuck Huston, chairman of the committee, told the Coun cil that before his committee appealed to the faculty senate he would like to hear the view of scholarship chairmen and other interested students. The Student Council is ask ing the administration to ex tend the final exam period one day in order to leave the first day completely free for study. Letters supporting or dis agreeing with the council pro posal should be sent to Chuck Huston, Student Council Final Exam Committee, Room 305, Student Union. The committee will use the letters in preparing their pres entation for the faculty senate.
