Outstanding Cultural
Entertainment Offered
Student are being exposed to some of the most out
standing cultural offerings on any campus today in the
various concert, film and theatre series presently being
The best bargain from an economic standpoint is the
Student Union's foreign film series which offers 12
movies for $4 to students. This is an average of 35 cents
per show and included in the film series are "La Strada"
award winning Italian Film; a top French film, "My
Uncle"; and "Room at the Top", which won an academy
award for best actress, to mention a few.
Live theatre presented by students is being offered by
the University Theater at five presentations for only $5.
This includes such plays as' "Streetcar Named Desire,"
an original opera, two classic drama works and an orig
inal prize winning play. The campaign for ticket sales
opens today.
The Lincoln Community Concerts Assn. which is pres
ently conducting its membership drive is offering its
finest season since it was introduced a few year ago.
Included are a stereo festival by Fred Waring and the
Pennsylvanians, one of the all-time favorite musical
groups; the Spanish ballet, considered one of the top
theater attractions in Spain; the Vienna Choir Boys; and
the Dallas Symphony Orchestra with Leonard Pennario
as featured piano soloist. The group offers the four con
certs for $4.
So the student has available 20 top attractions for a
total of $13 or 65 cents each. It is an opportunity that no
one can afford to pass up and one which no one should.

the University enrollment
is the highest since 1949
c a u s e s the speculators
throughout the campus to
shift into high gear.
The increased enroll
ment will provide a boost,
not only to the University
population, but to the
school's prestige in years
to come. For it is the stu
dent graduating from the
University that carries the
banner of his alma mater
to more areas than the
University, its ""ublic Rela
tions Department or its
Chancellor could ever hope
to cover.
This is true, if the student
graduating from the Uni
versity feels that the edu
cational benefits offered
here are the best in the
United States.
It is doubted, very seri
ously, that a large portion
of the graduates are doing
just this.
Recently in a Minneapo
lis, Minn, newspaper, a
June graduate of the Uni
versity of Nebraska had this
to say about the female's
role in college:
"Most females come to a
university just to find a
Granted, this is an iso
lated case. But at the
same time this isolated
case was printed and many
readers were able to read
the views of this recent Ne
braska graduate.
Why aren't more students
proud of their University?
Why don't they want to ex
press the wonderful things
that Chancellor Hardin and
other faculty representa
tives ire doing for this
University and the state?
The campus, at least the
Greek system for the most
part, is presently in a far

has grown into a monster:
This problem has steadily
grown, and has finally be

which will, if not handled
properly, provide a mess,
large enough to erase all
the goodwill spread by
loyal Nebraskans.
Seeing so many Greeks
up in arms about this prob
lem causes one to stop and
think . . . What would
happen to the system if a
real problem crossed its
path? A problem like the
one that faces the four

By Myron ' Papadakis
and Bob Nye
Many articles have been
written concerning the
trend of the nation toward
conformity. To sociologists
this situation is alarming
and even shocking. Their
views on the subject are
summed up thusly: "Ameri
cans are no logger able to
think for themselves; in
stead, group thinking has
replaced singular thinking".
This being true, it is quite
clear that we have only
average thinking, and no
great emphasis is put on
In all types of society
found in America there is
conformity. On campus how
ever, there is a wide choice
of which group to conform
with. In our opinion con
formity is the only way to
be accepted. (Acceptability
being a most treasured
goal). Conformity with
many groups of people is
directly proportional to ac
ceptability to said groups.
So join now. Conform now!
