New Union Cafeteria Slated
For Opening During Vacation
Crib May Appear by May I, Lake Says
'Parties Off -Limits
If Not Registered'
Colbert, Snyder Clarify Procedure
For Holding Functions, List Violations
By Sandra Whalen
Students will return from
Easter vacation to find a new
cafeteria opened in the Union.
"Our whole theme of the
cafeteria is that institutional
food service doesn't have to
be institutional," Duane Lake,
managing director of the Un
ion, said. "We're going to be
as uptown as anyone."
132 Seats
The cafeteria, which will
seat 192, will have turquoise
walls, brown formica table
tops and turquoise and gold
The tray rail of the cafe
teria line will be of formica
with raised stainless steel
"The cafeteria line will be
entirely hien from view of
the dining area by a wood
screen," Lake said. "We'll
also have one dining area
which will be able to be closed
off by draperies."
He explained that groups
would be able to reserve this
area for meetings.
"By using this area they
avoid the expense of having
their food served because they
can simply go through the
line, pick out what they want,
and then sit in the reserved
area," he said.
Lake listed several innova
tions of the cafeteria, among
them a rotating glass lazy
susan, three banks high, to
be used for salad display.
The salad display will be
located at the beginning of the
line, with the sandwich coun
ter. Students can watch their
steaks or shrimp prepared at
to be opened "sometime
around the first part of May."
The present Crib will not be
closed until the new one is

"Any unregistered party is

basement," J. Philip Colbert,
dean of the Division of Stu
dent Affairs, said.
He and Helen Snyder, asso
ciate dean for women, cited
and interpreted some Uni
versity regulations regarding
registration of social func
tions. Social Guide
A booklet, "A Guide for So
cial Events," prepared by the
Faculty Senate subcommittee
on student social affairs and!
activities lays the basic rules
governing social events.
This booklet is distributed
to the president or social
chairman of campus organ
izations. University parties must be
registered and chaperoned.
When groups want to have
functions at what Dean Sny
der called the "usual places,"
permission is granted by the
Student Affairs office.
Examples of the "usual
places" were cited as the
Cornhusker Hotel, Cotner Ter
race, Lincoln Hotel and simi
lar places.
Places not listed in the
office of the Division of Stu
dent Affairs are not off-limits
for University parties. Dean
Colbert said.
Permission for holding par
ties at other than the "usual'
places must be obtained from
the Faculty Senate subcom
mittee on social affairs, ac
cording to the booklet issued
by that committee.

atmosphere of the Gay 90's will invade Howell
when the comedy-farce, "The Matchmaker", is
nresented Wednesday through Friday.
From scene one the audience is carried back into the
days of the mutton chop whiskers and feather plume hats.
No Niceties
The first scene does not reflect the niceties of life, how
ever, but Horace Vandergelder's lack of them.
"The room is done in a horrible yellowish green with
tables, chairs, a desk, a barrel and a trapdoor" through
which the characters enter, according to technical director
Dr. Charles Lown.
In contrast to this, Miss Molloy's Hat Shop, in act two,
is done in blue wallpaper with a showcase of painted hats
and several feathery chapeaux.
Like Gunsmoke
Act three takes place in Harmonia Gardens, a restau
rant typical of the period with its plaster inserts and swing
ing doors much like those found in "Gunsmoke's" Long
branch Saloon.
The play ends happily in the Victorian living room f
Miss Van Huysen.
Technically, "The Matchmaker" is done in a the
atrical style four acts with "wing and drop" scenery.
This scenery is composed of partitions jutting from the
edge of the stage to give an effect of depth and several ex
panses of canvas which are lowered when necessary.
A special act cttrtain was built for the play. Painted in
a light paste, it pictures an antique train chugging across a

Cornhusker Skeleton Exposed
With 'Spicf Section of Yore
By Gretchen Sides
With the final Cornhusker deadline
drawing nearer each day, stories are
emerging that show that even the Univer
sity yearbook has a skeleton in its closet.
William Harper, director of University
services, a man with an inexhaustible sup
ply of antedotes about campus life, told
the following story:
Student Life
The Cornhusker, a number of years ago,
had a special Student Life section. The
section contained snaps, take-offs and
jokes on prominent campus groups and
But in 1921 the section, which was
termed "spicy," went too far for even the
roaring twenties.
The book was printed and several copies
had been delivered when the Student Life
section came to the attention of the au
thorities. Oops
Distribution was promptly stopped and
the book went back to the printers where
the offending section was lifted and the
book was rebound.
Pictures on one page compared the
legs of an active campus coed to the pil
lars on a wharf in San Francisco. On an
other page the copy with a picture was
considered risque.
Several snaps of sorority houses taken
during a night serenade revealed girls in
their bathrobes, showing their legs above
the knees.
Real Shecker
But the real shocker was-a picture of
two coeds in their "teddies."
There was some talk of a slander suit
but it never materialized.
Another practice about that time was
the custom of dividing all money left over
after expenses had been paid between the
business manager and the editor.
This amount had never been very large
until 1923 when the business manager, a
salesman from start to finish, decided to
capitalize on the publicity surrounding the
1921 "scandal."
Little news stories were laced in the Ne
braskan about the content of the various
Cornhusker sections.
The stories hinted that the Student Life
section was going to be even more risque
than the 1921 edition.
The section was 'ctually very ordinary,
but the gullible public bought 2800 copies
of the book. Up until then, sales usually
totaled about 1400 copies.
Business manager and editor received
an unexpected windfall $2400 apiece.
It never happened again. Different regu
lations regarding the use of extra money
were put into effect the next year.
a party, it is referred to the
"Most (groups) ask for
places we approve," Dean
Snyder said.
Some places, such as the'
Italian Village, have been ap
proved by talking to the man
agement. If they are willing
to cooperate with the Univers
ity and accept the responsi
bility of having a function
there, they are approved,
Dean Snyder said.
In the case of the Italian
Village, parties are allowed if
the group is small enough to
use the private room.
Judging whether or not a
business establishment may
be the scene of a registered
University function is largely
a matter of discretion, accord
ing to Dean Snyder.
Good Taste'
"It can't be pinpointed,'
she said. "It is a matter of
good taste, good judgement,
good citizenship and good ed
ucation." Unregistered parties may
lead to social and activity
probation of an organized
group, Dean Colbert said.
A group on such probation
may have no social events or
extra-curricular activities.
Organized houses may b
put on probation for "conduct
unacceptable to the Univers
ity," Dean Colbert said.
Conduct Violations
Such conduct could ba un
registered parties, parties
without a chaperone, parties
with alcoholic beverages,
parties held after closing
hours for women, pledge
sneaks that interfere with the
authorized instructional pro
gram at the University, ex
cessive hazing, vandalism or
similar conduct, according to
the dean.
Currently three groups are
on social and activity probation.
One group was put on pro
bation for a pledge sneak
which interfered with the Uni
versity's instructional pro
gram. The group's pledges
interrupted classes in session
and kidnapped an upperclass
man, preventing mm from
taking an "important" exam
ination the following day.
"They d been warned the
year before, Dean Colbert
An unregistered party at an
unauthorized location after
closing hours for women stu
dents caused a second group
to be put on probation.
'Detrimental Procedures'
The third group's pledge
training caused their proba
tion. "Hell-week procedures
that were detrimental to the
scholastic progress, the health
and the dignity of the pledges"
caused this group's probation,
the dean said.

for the decision of placing a
group on probation, he saidl
