    ROTHJAits Invade Nebraska Hall Parking Area
The parking area south of
the new Nebraska Hall (El
gin) has been prohibited as a
student parking area and will
be made available 5s a ROTC
drill area, said James Pitten
ger, administrative assistant
to the Chancellor.
This program was initiated
last spring to permit the units
to transfer their drill grounds
from the Vine Street mall.
This was done, Pittenger said,
to preserve the grass and al
low beautification of the cam
pus. The area will be closed off
until Dec. 1, or until' the wea
ther forces the ROTC drills
indoors. The lot will be open
again for student parking un
til spring vacation when the
baracades will return and the
ROTC will again drill out
doors. Other Reasons
Several additional reasons
were cited by Pittenger for
using the lot as a drill area
during the fall and spring
The ROTC training is re
quired for all students on en
tering the University; there
fore, the cadets are entitled
to have a respectable place
to conduct basic drill. Cars
on this campus are not re
quired, he said. i
The University now Tias
enough parking area avail
able to accomodate student
parking, including the cars
or Selleck residents who park
in Area 2; therefore, the re
moval of some 230 parking
spaces will not cause any
great congestion.
The University is not un
happy, but it is a fact that
Selleck residents quite often
just use their cars on week
ends causing a pile up of
cars in the lot during the
week. This leaves the lot com
pletely unusable for any oth
er University function, such
as ROTC drill.
Worker's Area
Still in use at the Nebraska
Hall lot are about 100 spaces
for the parking of employees
and construction men work
ing on Nebraska Hall. This
area will be enlarged as the
building is occupied and will
permanently be barracaded
from student parking.
The roped off area is pres
ently, being used by the Uni
versity High marching band
as a practice area.

By Dave Wohlfarth
The Daily Nebraskan has
completed a man-on-the-cam
pus poll to determine what
the average fraternity man
opinion is about having an
IFC Ball this year.
The survey revealed that 19
of the 32 men questioned are
against a repeat of last year's
assessment to every frater
nity man, whether or not he
went to the Ball.
In Favor
Twenty-four men were def
initely in favor of having an
IFC Ball and only seven
thought the $2 was too much
to pay.
Half of the men interviewed
indicated they went last year
and 26 said they mtend to at
tend the Ball this year.
. The poll was strictly on an
individual basis and does not
necessarily represent the feel
ings of the different houses

:lassics department
Man Staff
Than Just L
By Tom Chandler
Why does the classics de
partment consist of only three
Partly," states Keith Aid-
rich, assistant professor of
classics, "because of the de
pression which is still taking
its toll of those persons who
might now be in college, part
ly because of disinterest, and,
of course, partly because of
Oddly enough, the lack of
students has handicapped the
Classics department to the
point where it has a very
small staff, Aldrlch said. He
noted that this small staff, in
turn, makes it difficult for the
Classics department to be a
strong department
The practicality of the clas
sics, or even basic Latin or
Greek, in a space age world
is! nearly negligible, Aldrich
admits. Yet the study of the
classics is also ultra-practical
because no Latin or Greek
history, literature or philoso
phy can be taught from a
translation he said. The only
way to really study these
classical subjects is to study
them in their native writing.
Greek, as an example, was
exploited by the Greek peo
ple in ways which we mod
erns have never dreamed of
and so cannot understand un
less we study the subject in
its own language.
Teaches Understanding
Mr. Aldrich says that the
teaching of a classical lan
guage is "teaching an analy
sis of the whole idea of under
standing and communication
to other persons." It is to this
goal that the classics depart
ment is devoted, rather than
the teaching of only a lan
guage. We realize, therefore, that
the Classics department is, in,
reality, a cultural department
and that it encompasses a lan
guage division of the Univer
sity of Nebraska, Aldrich
said. Conversely, the depart
ment also realizes its respon
sibility as cultural rather than
just linquistic.
Because of this, states Mr.
Aldrich, the Classics depart
ment is also a service depart
ment to the University of Ne
braska. It provides basic Lat
in and Greek courses which
may be applied on require
ments in other colleges in the
University. Classes in begin
ning Latin and Greek and of
Scientific Greek are offered
every year.
Individualistic Department
We may say, then, that the
Classics department is a very
individualistic department.
According to Aldrich, it can
not be classed with the lan
guage department, though a
major in the Classics is ac
tually a major in one of the
two classic languages. The dif
ference is in the intent. While
the Romance languages, for
instance, are taught with
the idea of developing com
prehension in listening, writ
ing, speaking, and reading,
the classic languages are
taught with comprehension in
reading only.
"Dead lanugages, you say.
No, not dead. The classical
languages are a cultural ex
pansion of a period in his
tory. The classic languages
are the keys to unlock the
wonders of classical history,
literature, and philosophy,"
Aldrich commented.
Aldrich received B.A.'s in
English and Classics from
the University of Washing
ton in 1950 and 1954, respec
tively, an M.A. from Harvard
in 1955 and his doctorate in
Classics from the University
of California in 1957.
