Confusion rose as Arts and Sciences freshmen jammed the lobby waiting to receive University To Try Coed Dorm In Burr Hall on Ag Campus Only a lobby separates the female and male students at Burr Hall on Ag campus this year. However, the lobby is the only common ground between the' two sets as large oak doors mark the west wing as "men's" and the east wing as "women's". Also seven counselors, one for each floor in both wings, are on full duty to see that the lobby is the only common ground between them. Prompting the shift of 96 coerig to Burr Hall was the terrific overflow of girls in Fedde Hall. The University felt that Burr Hall was never filled to capacity with Ag stu dents so they shifted the girls to the east wing of Burr. The male section will now accommodate only 112 stu dents and many others will ' have to live in apartments. Apartments According to Russ Brown, resident advisor, Univer- sity officials thought that it tion with the state Demo cratic leaders and officials. He and his personal staff plus his traveling press staff of 15 will leave Lin coln at 4:15 p.m. for Tope ka, Kan. Ferguson said he hoped the students would form in their assignments to advis ors. According to Lee W. Chat field, director of New Stu dent Week, the confusion was due to the great number of students and to the new op eration of the reception. Aft er a half hour, he said, the confusion subsided. Students were divided into groups on the basis of col leges. Each student went through the Chancellor's re ceiving line and also met the dean of his college. Students then met their advisors in formally. At 10 p.m. the Frosh Hop began in the Union Ballroom, with Eddie Haddad's combo playing. Helen Snyder, Dean of Women, said, "It was con fusion at first, but the stu dents found it fun later." Coliseum Convocation Thursday morning, the new students assembled in the Coliseum for a convocation. Chancellor Clifford M. Hardin welcomed the students to the University. Following the convocation, members of Innocents and Mortar Boards, directed a general orientation meeting. Students then met in groups with their faculty advisors.

New- Student Week has been shortened one day this year, a change permitted by pre-registration this summer of nearly 1,700 freshmen, stu dents who take University entrance exams are only the ones who have' not taken would be easier for the men to find apartments than It would for the women. Brown stated that he thought the new program, only an experimental one at present, has many possibili ties. He said that many cam puses have adopted the idea and have had good results. Brown added that since. Burr Hall and Fedde Hall residents have always eaten together in the cafeteria why can't they live in the same dorm under strict supervi sion. Both the male and female students have been orientat ed on the situation and have been warned that any student found in the wrong area will forfeit his or her contract and right to live in the resi dence halls at the University. The violator may also Jeop ardize his right to stay in the University. Extra Precautions As extra precautions Brown said that the staff has tried to anticipate what might hap pen and have taken neces- front of the Student Union to welcome Sen. Johnson as they did when Sen. John Kennedy was here last year. He added that there will be some students going to the airport to greet the sen ator as he steps off the plane. - Friday, September 16, 1960 either the Regents or the Na tional Merit Exams. Accordinff to James S. Pit- tinger, assistant to the Chan cellor, these tests do as sat isfactory as University en trance in placing students. Too Early Helen Snvder. Dean of Women, stated that she felt it was too early to evaluate the merits of the shortened student week. However, she said that the new system did seem to close tne gap De tween activities. "You can do more things faster," she ex plained. "There is a continuing need for New Student Week activi ties," Pittenger stated. "Each year we try to improve them." If the enrollment keeps in creasing, changes will be projected m many ways: for instance, utilization of the Elein building. . now called Nebraska Hall. We knew trends were moving toward greater enrollment, but hadn't contemplated such a great leap this year," wir. Pittenger continued. Housing ( Faculties Tn connection with the housing facilities for the in coming men, Selleck Quad rangle Manager Alfred B. Calvert reported that the dorm is filled to capacity. "TT.nnncrti Hnrm antilications to fill the dorm were filed by August 1. Any one com ing now will uve in tne Duns, section, an overflow area in the basement," Calvert said. Selleck will accomodate 930 men, including dorm coun selors, in the rooms and 40 in the overflow. Calvert estimated mat about 15 men had broken their dorm contracts to move into fraternity houses. This is permitted by a clause in the contract stating it can be broken by paying $40. Theater To Cast Different Plays Joint tryouts for two differ ent plays will be held Mon day, Tuesday and Wednesday from 3-5 p.m. and 7-10 p.m. at Howell Theatre. "Streetcar Named Desire" by Tennessee Williams will be directed by Dr. Dallas Williams, associate professor of speech and dramatic art. It will be presented Dec. 14-17. "Six Characters in Search ftf an Author" bv Luiei Pi randello will be directed by Dr. William Morgan, also an associate professor of speech and dramatic art. It will be given Nov. 2-5. enrv stens nnw so that temp tation might not prevail later. Some of these extra precau tions are an increased num ber of doors and locks in the womens area, signs definitely distinguishing the two areas, pig glass in some of the win dows instead of the regular window panes and the coun selors on each of the floors. The social factor , will be stepped up said Brown as the nearness of the coeds will prompt the men to improve their appearance and to brush up on their manners. Both the male and the female students say that coeduca tional living in the dorm will present a real challenge and that the social barrier some times existing between the two dorms will practically diminish. A coed said that although Burr Hall was missing some of the facilities, such as laun dry service, she was certain that it presented a good at mosphere for the student. The Burr Hall East girls will use the laundry facilities in Fedde Hall.
