'Field Song'
"The Cornhusker," known
now by only the athletes of
the University, is called the
"offical field song of the
University". Members of
the football squad sing the

On Spreading Spirit:
Noisemaker Gimmicks
Would Liven Stands
By Dick Stuckey
Everything from duck calls to cherry bombs to a
cadence crushing of paper cups was suggested for noise
makers at games on a Daily Nebraskan Crib inquiry.
Dean Jenkins 'offered three questionable gimmicks for
rapid spreading of contagious spirit: the unzipping and
zipping of coat zipers on cold days (again in unison), the
blowing of tissue paper on pocket combs, and the skilled use
of a Zither an Alpine goat-calling horn which produces an
amazing screaming sound similar to the call of the Zeus
Judy Porkorny said, "I think cow bells are nice my
self," and several others suggested the same.
Several Sigma Alpha Mu's offered the use of their port
able siren and an anonymous representative of the ROTC
department suggested a short range mteile directed at the
Carillon Tower.
One possible idea was to request Pop Kline to have his
vendors sell popcorn to the student section in small mega
phones to facilitate vocal strength.
Other suggestions for general noisemaking included
trumpets, New Year's Eve remnants, cow horns, moose
horns, tambourines and cymbals.
Joe Tooley thought complimentary bubble gum to
sororities would liven things, and Bill Wells, University
cheerleader, offered to put a cow under the springboard
used by the Yell Squad to count to six in agonizing bleats
as the team richocheted from the bovine.
One positive ideas man thought if all Dorm people were
given Voodoo dolls of the Greeks, and the Greeks likewise
of the Dorm people, then spirit could be advanced greatly
in needle-punching fashion.

Let us pledge once again
our allegiance to you . . .
Let us sing of your spirit
that never will die . . . But
will carry you on with our
old battle cry:"
The Chant follows, then
another verse, and the
Chant again.
The University was called
U.N.I. as much as Corn
husker in those days.
"Standing By"
"If," another alma mater-type
song says, "Had I
a thousand voices, full
with silver phrase, Each
one would be recalling my
glad Cornhusker days; And
if some ear should list, as
my song is floating by,
'Twould hear the thrilling
echo of U.U.U.N.I."
Another rallying song,
"Standing By," shouts "Oh
U-N-I! We're standing by
U-N-I, oh! U-N-I! Then do
your best, we'll do the rA"t,
U-N-I, oh! U-N-I! Buck the
line with all your might,
Circle ends, both left and
right, and when you're hold
ing, .hold them tight, U-N-I,
oh! U-N-I!"

man. "Conduct Warning"
The hearings will be in 419

Kelly said the Tribunal had
five cases before them last
week. They recommended
"conduct warning" for all five
to Dean Colbert of Student Af
fairs. When questioned by the
Daily Nebraskan as to his
position on closed hearings, he
replied, "Every individual has
the right to have an open
meeting if he wants. As far as
the Tribunal stands, it makes
no difference."
Kelly stated that the Trib
unal will follow the Student
Council's recommenda t i o n
last spring that the Tribunal
submit more information con
cerning its function to the
Box of Cases
"We plan to have in the
Daily Nebraskan (list) every
week of the cases heard and
recommendations of the Trib
unal. Tribunal secretary Ingrid
Leder will be in charge of it."
"We are not a jury as
such," he explained,' "We
merely make recommenda
tions to the Dean of Student
Affairs. We found last year
that everyone (judged) was
well satisfied. Out of 96 cases
only six requested open hear
ings. It worked really well."
Kelly said that the present
