COLOR TALK The Alpha Omicron Pi's got tired of try
ing to figure out where was line one, which was line three
and who was talking to whom on which. The problem was
especially complicated by Lincoln girls and new pledges
on phone duty who hadn't yet mastered the system. The
answer Yvonne Young finds is in new phones of green,
ivory, and pink. The new phrase coined around AOPi re
cently is "You have a phone on pink!"

cording to Miss Peterson, to
take care of the physical de
tail such as housing, meals
and programming.
- Planning of the program is
done by a "steering commit
tee" which meets in the
spring prior to the conference.
At this time the general pro
gram is planned and various
colleges and universities are
assigned particular topics.
The steering committee is
headed by the regional con
ference president. This year's
president is Jim England of
Kansas State College.

Meet Each Week
Foreign, Native Girls
To Work Together
Twelve American and for

together next week to under
stand what America can be
and not just what is "typical."
They will meet each Friday
for a class and during the
weeks spend time studying,
visiting at the residences and
sharing other experiences.
"We have selected with care
through interviews and refer
ences those that we feel are
among the top American and
top foreign girls on campus,"
said Dr. William E. Hall, pro-'
fessor of educational psycho
logy. I
He continued that often stu
dents come here with a dis
like for America and that by
the time they leave they think
even less of the country and
the people here.
Common Bond
By selecting a common
bond and goal to work for,
he said he hoped that Ameri
can students can show the
other girls how fine Ameri
cans can be, rather than only
what is typical, which often
gives outsiders the wrong

Two foreign students are still
to be selected, but the four

Sanamma Thomas, India, and
Hildegart Ibarra, Panama.
The idea began last spring
when Dr. Hall and Mrs. Her

Harper said that since the
loans were made available
in March, a total of $78,739
had been loaned to 208 stu
dents for one or more per
iods. He explained that, many
students had repeated loans
for summer- school and the
current semester.
In March, 45 students bor
rowed $11,739, a total of 46
borrowed $13,242 for summer
school, and 154 are using $53,

current borrowers are re
peaters, according to Harper.

"We expect the number of
borrowers in the plan to in

it and enrollments increase,"
he added.
Harper also called the plan
"too liberal," and said cleri-

hard to achieve."
This fall the students used
their course by working in

To Compete
In Chicago
The University Livestock
Judging Team left for the Na
tional Intercollegiate Cham
pionships in Chicago Monday
after placing third in the
Midwest Judging Clinic at
Kansas State Saturday.
Nebraska came in behind
Iowa State and Oklahoma
State in the competition last
weekend. Iowa State scored a
winning total of 4,610 points,
while the University amassed
4,549 points.
Ernest Thayer was the top
Nebraska point gatherer with
a total of 923 and placed
fourth in the entire contest.
The team will stop at Len
nox, IJanning and Ames,
Iowa, enroute to Chicago, and
at Barrington, Mukwonago,
Libertyville and Richmond in
Illinois. They will be in Chi
cago from Friday through
Tuesday morning and return
to Lincoln Tuesday afternoon.
Making the trip are Gerald
Goold, Ted Klug, George
O'Neal, D o n n Simonson,
Thayer and Patrick Wright,
and Prof. R. B. Warren, who
coaches the team.
For Tips
cal work required to keep tab
on long-term borrowers might
cost universities a great deal
of money.
Checking Required
"As soon as a student drops
below 12 hours, he is no longer
eligible for the loan and his
note becomes due one year
after that date," Harper con
tinued. "This takes a lot of check
ing. Students may drop
courses after receiving th
loan," he added.
On Oct. 31, more than $155,
000 in loans were outstand
ing from the University's
permanent loan fund. A total
of 673 borrowers owed the
money, Harper said.
