Grjmk ARCHIVES, By Jim Forrest Facelifting activi ties were prominent oh campus this summer in fra ternity and sorority houses as re-decoration ranged from new furnaces to nevw additions. The sororities were the most vigorous redecorators with Alpha Chi Omega, Alpha Phi and Delta Gam ma building new additions on to their houses. Completion Soon Alpha Chi Omega's new addition on the corner of 15th and Vine is scheduled for completion by the first of November. The structure will house a new kitchen, dining room, second floor "and front entrance. Im proved parking facilities have also been made. In January the Alpha Phi's hope to move into their new addition, which includes bedrooms and a dining room in its three floor interior. Besides the new addition, Alpha Phi is also repainting the outside 'Big Gun9 Sounds 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 stadium. 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 Scholarship 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 scholarship.

Delta Tau Delta, re-tarred their roof, graded and smoothed out their parking lot and painted the inside. Touch-Up Work Doing just repainting and touch-up work on their houses, but nothing exten sive were Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Phi Kappa Psi, Delta Upsilon, Kappa Sig ma and Beta Sigma Psi. Other minor work was done by Delta Sigma Phi, Delta Sigma Pi, Pi Kappa Phi, Sigma Alpha Mu, Sig ma Nu, Zeta Beta Tau, Theta Chi, and Phi Gam ma Delta who are planning 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. Graduate College now has KK Tryouts Coming Soon Tryouts for the fall Kosmet Klub shows to be held Octo ber 14 will be scheduled with in the next two weeks, ac 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 campus? 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 Kernels. The beanies are to be worn until the Nebraska gridders win their first home game, or until the first snowfall. Costing $1.50 each, they can be purchased from any Inno cent or at the Division of Uni versity Services in the Ad ministration Building. 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. Monday, September 26, 1960 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 show: 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 Saturday, Oct. 1. She also said that students can still add until the Oct 1 deadline.
