Alpha Chi Omega's new
addition on the corner of

for completion by the first

'Big Gun9
For Huskers
Nebraska's first home
touchdown of the season was
announced with a bang Satur
day afternoon.
Signalling the scores this
year for the Huskers is
a 75 mm howitzer purchased
last spring for the athletic
department by Bob Blair,
and Col. V. R. Rawie, pro
fessor of military science
and tactics.
The "big gun" will be
fired to signal each home
touchdown of the season as
an answer to the shotgun
fired by Oklahoma and the
mortar used by Missouri.
Strict peacetime conditions
will be in effect to prevent
mishap. No lite rounds will
be fired, only half charges
will be used, and the howit
zer will point away from the
To prevent waste of tax
payers money, all expenses
for the howitzer are being
paid through athletic funds,
said Col. Rawie.
IFC Award
To Promote
The annual IFC scholarship
award will soon be presented
to a sophomore fraternity
man with a 6.0 or higher
overall average.
Each house is urged to
submit two candidates for
the award, the IFC suggested
Wednesday night.
The IFC Scholarship Com
mittee will pick six finalists,
then narrow down the field
to three. A special commit
tee of faculty representatives
will then pick the winner.
Last year's award went to
Roy Arnold of Farm House.
In other scholarship busi
ness, IFC Scholarship Chair
man Byron Dillow suggested
three ideas to Improve the
IFC average: 1. Investigate
the new Study methods course,
possibly making it compul
sory for all pledges, 2. Obtain
ideas from the sororities on
the secret of their high av
erage, 3. Recognize fraternity
men with high averages
through publicity.
In the fpur groups of
second semester scholar
ship rankings, released this
week, no fraternities were in
Group I (6.0 or above). Six
houses placed in Group II
(5.5 to 6.0), sixteen in Group
III (5.0 to 5.5) and one in
Group IV (below 5.0).
The All-Fraternity average
for second semester last year
was 5.376 which was slightly
lower than the All-male av
erage. A meeting is planned for
next Tuesday -with Dean
Frank Hallgren and a repre
sentative of the counseling
service to discuss IFC

Get Recognition
Theta Xi won the Corn Cob
banner contest at the Minne
sota football rally in front of
the Student Union Friday
night. Runners up in the com
petition were Alpha Omicron
Pi and Phi Kappa Psi.
Approximately 1,000 s t u
dents attended the rally as
fraternity pledge classes car
rying their banners followed
the cheerleaders and band on
to the Union patio.
Some signs were destroyed
but police kept the high spir
ited crowd under hand.
According to Yell King Al
Krizelman, it was "the larg
est rally in the last 3 years
and the sign contest showed
the most preparation."
"I hope this spirit will con
tinue for the rest of the sea
son," Krizelman said.
He added that there will be
a contest each week for house
spirit at the games. The or
ganized house winning the
trophy the most times during
the next five games will retire
it until next year.
Winners for last year's sea
son were the Tri Delts.
Judging, to be done by
cheerleaders, will be based on
the organized yelling of the
house. Original ideas such as
banners, noise makers, bal
loons, flags or pom poms are
The contest is open to both
men's and . women's organ- j

Organizations Selected

Four organizations to be
supported by the All Univer
sity Fund will be selected by
a student-faculty poll on Oc

AUF is the only organiza
tion authorized to solicit the
campus for contributions to
charity. It gives the students
a chance to support those
organizations which they feel
are most worthy.
The drive for student con
tributions will be from No

drive is to be conducted in
the spring.
Students will usually be
asked to contribute by per

Other minor work was

cording to Dr. F. L. Nicolai,
deputy registrar.
The colleges showing in
creases in enrollment at 4:30
p.m. Thursday were Arts and
Sciences, Engineering and
Arts and Sciences, Engineer
ing and Architecture and
Business Administration.
The latest tabulation
showed Arts and Sciences
had 1,749 students enrolled
compared to 1,546 first se
mester last year. The men
women breakdown shows
1,130 men in Arts and Sci
ences compared to 1,046 a
year ago. There were 619
women registered Thursday
as compared to only 500 a
year ago.
Second among the colleges
in enrollment, Engineering
and Architecture showed a
16 student hike. There are
1410 registered now com
pared with 1,394 total first
semester a year ago. This to
tal includes 16 women.
Bus Ad Third
Running a close third is
the College of Business Ad
ministration with an enroll
ment of 934 at Thursday's
count compared with 923 for
the final count for this same
period a year ago.
Again there are more men
in Bus Ad than women but
both numbers are up.
A fourth college, Teach
er's, is down considerably
from a year ago but Nicolai
indicated that it is expected
that the final count will be
close to last year's first se
mester's enrollment. Figures
for Teacher's show 1359 stu
dents with last year's figures
of 1413.
The fifth large college, Ag
riculture is 11 under a year
ago, 949 to 960.

KK Tryouts

cording to John Schroeder,
publicity co-chairman.
The theme this year is
"Historical Hysteric s",
Schroeder announced.
Don Epp, who is in charge
of the traveling acts asks that
any group or individual con
contact him before October 1.
"A house with a skit may
also have a traveler act too."
Schroeder explained. He
added that traveler acts may
be musical or humorous.
"These acts are individuals
or small groups performing
for five minutes. The traveler
acts will be judged and a
trophy will be awarded to the
winning act," Epp said.
Phi Kappa Psi won the top
honors last fall in the KK
review. Gary Parker, Delta
Tau Delta won the traveler's
act trophy.
Not Just Anyone
Can Wear Beanie
Who's entitled to wear those
little red beanies seen around
Well, not just anyone. Ac
cording to a 1958 Interfrater
nity Council ruling, freshman
pledges are the only ones re
quired to wear the beanies.
Many houses, however, do not
enforce the rule.
Also expected to have the
red hats are members of
The beanies are to be worn

until the first snowfall.
Costing $1.50 each, they can

to move to a new location
in a year or two.
Sigma Phi Epsilon did
some rebuilding of porches
and windows plus getting
new gutters. Theta Xi also
did extensive rebuilding of
their kitchen.
Rounding out fraternity
row fix-up is Farmhouse
with new rugs; Phi Delta
Theta with new tile on the
second and third floors;
and Sigma Chi who put in
new rugs, desks and beds.
Sinks and ventilation were
added in the kitchen and
re-upholstered furniture in
the living room.

794 enrolled compared to 939
a year ago.
Undeclared Few
One marked drop is the
Junior Division. There are
only 87 undeclared students
compared to 103 a year ago.
"Junior Division is drop
ping each year due to bet
ter advising. Frankly, we
would be worried if it (Jun
ior Division) didn't drop each
year," Nicolai explained.
Other College enrollments
Law is up 10 with 148 com
pared with 138 a year ago.
Pharmacy is down one with
31 now comnared with
32 last year.
Teacher's Advanced Pro
fessional student enrollments
dropped sharply from 312 of
a year ago to 219. Nicolai ven
tured a guess that the drop
was due to the teachers tak
ing their courses by exten
sion around the state instead
of coming to Lincoln as they
aia a year ago.
Freshman Total Up
As for a final estimate,
Nicolai said that the total
figures were "problematic"
when trying to figure but it
is "certain now that the
freshman enrollment is up
about 200."
He said that this increase
is due to "concentrated ef
forts to attract freshmen."
"It does look like there
will bs more cirls this vear
vhen all the chips are in,"
wicoiai added.
The Thursday f 1 e u r p. a
showed 7,863 enrolled on the
city and agriculture cam
puses compared to the final
total last year of 7,945. There
are 5,573 men and 2,290 wom
en registered so far con
trasted to 5,744 men and 2,201
women a year ago.
Nicolai explained that these
figures do not include the ex
tension enrollment numbers
and the medical and nursing
schools in Omaha.
Deadline Saturday
Depending upon the re
maining graduate students
left to register and a few
undergraduate students, plus
figures from Omaha and the
extensions, "the final number
should be close to 8,600," Nic
olai estimated.
Mrs. Irma Laase, assistant
to the registrar, asked to re
mind students that the dead
line for registration is nnnn

She also said that students
can still add until the Oct 1
