With thnsc - cancellations
only Kansas State and Ne

The other four schools did not
want to take part in the pro

and regulations placed by
their respective Student Af

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

"It is unfortunate and we
apologize to all concerned,"

Another glass door in the

about 10:30 Monday night due
to "boisterous activity."
Five students were brought
back for conference after the

members identified the last
people to occupy the Crib.
The tame group or individ

defaced some Union furnish

Union manager Allen Ben

also want respect for both

participating school.
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

increased from 1,515 last year

Late Hour
Is 'Quiet'
First Night
Draws 100-150
Frank Lundy, director of
the University libraries, de
scribed the student reaction
to the late Love library hours
as "quiet."
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
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

The Ag Exec Board will

On Saturday
More t h a n 390 graduating
students will receive degrees
Saturday, Jan. 30, at the Uni
versity's mid-year Com
mencement exercises.
. Chancellor Clifford Hardin
will preside, Dr. Allen Breck
enridge, dean of faculties, will
serve as master of ceremon
ies; and the Rev. Charles Wil
son, pastor of First Christian
Church, Lincoln, will be chap
lain. There will be no commence
ment speaker this year. The
reason for the change in the
traditional order of gradua
tion is due to a decision made
by the Commencement Com
mittee that more emphasis
should be placed on the grad
uates rather than speakers-
The number of graduates js
slightly below last year's mid
term class of 404.
