The official decision was made Tuesday night by the Student Union Activities Board after the University of Colorado called Monday and said it couldn't gather enough acts to make the tour. O-State Out, Too Friday Oklahoma State cancelled because of a bas ketball game scheduled on the same night With thnsc - cancellations only Kansas State and Ne braska were left in the show. The other four schools did not want to take part in the pro gram because of cost factors and regulations placed by their respective Student Af fairs agents. The Union committee said that with all the difficul ties incurred that it would be doubtful if this type of show would be tried next year. "The anouncement will come as a disappointment to those who tried out in the lo cal contest and were await ing the announcement of the acts which were chosen for the traveling show," said Al len Bennett, Union manager. "It is unfortunate and we apologize to all concerned," he said. The board hopes this will not discourage students to participate in other future events. 'Unintentional' Bennett said he wanted ev eryone to understand it was no intention of the university that this be cancelled until the unavoidable circumstance occurred. However, the Union board is working on a plan for next year which would lead to a all-campus variety show at which numbers would be se- Another. Union Door h Broken Another glass door in the Student Union was broken about 10:30 Monday night due to "boisterous activity." Five students were brought back for conference after the night manager and staff members identified the last people to occupy the Crib. The tame group or individ uals in it are believed to have defaced some Union furnish ings in the Crib, also. Union manager Allen Ben nett said, "We like to see everyone in the Union and in no way imply that we want to throw anyone out, however, we also want respect for both Union stalf members and the buildings and furnishings." Disciplinary action for the Incident is penaing. Talent - Entrants Show lected for touring Nebraska for organizations and high schools. Other Big Eight schools also are contemplat ing a similar program. $400 for Tour The Union board did not know whether such a tour could be organized from tal ent interviewed earlier this year due to financial reaso Bennett estimated that a three-day week-end tour for 15 people would cost about $400. The Big Eight talent show began three years ago. Mon ey to finance the trip was ob tained by admission for the show at each school. Meals were furnished at the host's expense but addi tional finances for traveling were made available by each participating school. Registration Progressing Smoothly Alternate Courses Often Not Listed All students who failed to turn in their worksheets last week must now wait until Fri day, Jan. 29, to register for next semester classes. According to Mrs. Irma Laase, assistant registrar, only a few students failed to turn in worksheets during the time alloted. She remarked that regis tration was progressing smoothly. The program was simplified further due to the fact that students in Business Administration and Agricul ture turned their worksheets in to the office cf their col lege dean. The worksheets for these two particular colleges were turned in each day in a single group cutting down on the confusion at the desk in Ad ministration. The only difficulty encoun tered has been failure of stu ents to list alternate courses, Mrs. Laase said. New students and returning students may register Jan. 29 Feb. 13. Approximately the same number of new students are expected next semester as compared to mid-term of last year. Approximately 200 to 300 new students are ex pected next semester. Last year the University gained 243 newcomers at mid-term. No increase in married stu dents is anticipated second semester in spite of many se-mpstpr-hreak weddine nlans. According to attendance fig : ures, however, the number of married persons on campus increased from 1,515 last year to 2,906 recorded in this fall's enrollment, Today is the last day to pick up your Student Directory in the Student Union lobby Friday's Paper To Be 8-Pager Friday's edition of the Daily Nebraskan will con sist of eight pages.

He said there were approxi mately 100-150 students in the. library Monday night until the new late hour of 10:50 p.m. He reported all were quietly studying and were very cooperative and under standing about the system the library has adopted in re gard to the late hours. Staff Assignments Lundy explained the regu lar staff would be on hand to assist students with reference help only until 9 p.m. each evening. After nine, student assistant who haVe had ex perience working in the li brary will check out books for students. However, no reference help will be avail-, able after the regular staff has left. Lundy commented,' "We feel the students need this service and will use it." He anitcipated the number using the library until 10:50 would increase as they be came accustomed to the new hours. Police Patrol He explained the campus police were cooperating with the library in regard to the late hours. Campus police will check the library occa sionally after 9 p.m. and patrol the surrounding area after 9 p.m. as a safeguard to the students. "We are trying to provide the student with the service he needs at a minimum cost and with the necessary safe guards," Lundy explained. He said this is not the first time the library has tried ex perimental hours at the re quest of the students. About three or four years ago they opened the library for the first time on Sunday after noons and evenings. After one semester the evening hours were abandoned be cause not enough students took advantage of them. The present 10:50 p.m. hours will be maintained through finals and become the regular library hours next semester. Ag Exec Board The Ag Exec Board will meet at 7 p.m. today in the Ag Union.
