All Hell Week Antics
Aren't Gone From iVtl
Who are we trying to fool, Hell Weeks on this cam- I
pus are not dead; at least not in some circles. g
Fraternities nave been forced, either through their I
national headquarters or through local administrative
officials, to modify their pre-initiation activities. The
fraternities have complied with the edicts. f
At the same time, however, groups not recognized as I
fraternities have continued these roaring twenty prac- 1
Only two weeks ago, a University ROTC organization I
held their pre-initiation week. During the fun and games
period, hopeful initiates of the Pershing Rifles did such I
militarilf important tasks as hold a military inspection at
4 a.m. on the first two days, while the last three days I
they didn't have to fall in until six a.m.!
It Is also Interesting to
required to "spend may of their free hours in the Military

and errand boys,"
It seems strange that no outward pressure has been
put on this group from the administration, as in the 1
case in the fraternity system.
This Is not only of great importance to the students of f
this campus. Throughout the state of Nebraska there are I
parents of students, University students, who will not I
allow their sons or daughters to become affiliated with
fraternities or sororities because of the stereotypes built I
in these parents' .ninds.
Many of the parents still picture the 5vy-covered 1
fraternity house as a home for sadistic, paddle-wielding 1
young men.
Yet, at the same time, what do these parents think of
the Pershing Rifles r even X Club? The bell-week type
activities are carried a by both these groups, and pes- 1
sibly ere others, tight under the noses of the Adminis-
There is no logical reason why the Administration 1
should tell the parents of prospective students that hell I
weeks exist only in fraternity

ing out a bad thing, let's start In our own back yard.
Detractions Can Ruin
NU Campus Beauty
Earlier this week in the letterrip column a letter
noted the discovery of two new beauty spots on campus.
The student was speaking of the ugly fencing found at the
east entrance of Andrew's HaH and the north side of Love
library. ,
It seems that a great .amount of time, energy and
expense has been put into the beautificaticra of our cam
pus. Eye sores such as the two mentioned toy the student
letter writer, easily removed as they could be, distract
from the surrounding beauty near the places mentioned.
Perhaps this situation could be remedied with a little
Another eyesore that is cropping up in connection
with the current construction work being done at the
southern border of our campus. R" Street is becoming
a mud covered thoroughfare due to the transportation of
dirt from the Sheldon Art Gallery and Episcopal Chapel
construction sites,
We wonder if It wouldn't be possible for the com
panies involved to find a different route to their dumping
site. Perhaps the 10th street, one way, could be used for
this route.

Aroimd Oui Campus
for the campus, certain ob
jectives were established.
The first of these is to de
velop a logical gromth pat
tern for academic areas.
Each f the departments
bas determined its preseSt
status and has estimated
what the needs will be by
1980 for classrooms, labor
atories, research depart
ments and the like. The
next provision is for fields
which are large enough for
all intramural sports at the
University. The architects
bave also kept in mind the
possibility of federal tracts
locating next to the College
of Agriculture.
The second major objec
tive is to improve the ve
hicular asd pedestrian pat
tern. The automobile traf
fic is constantly increasing
and many of the streets on
Ag Campus are too narrow
to accomodate this traffic '
The proposed ideas is to
separate vehicle and pedes
trian traffic as much as
possible. Moreover, a study
is being made of the way
in which people enter the
campus. The Nortb-e a s t
diagonal of the interstate
highway may cause the
main entrance to be relo
cated. Along with this goal is
the objedive ia provide ade
quate p ark I g parking
which is sufficiently close t
a stu dent's destination, yet
provided for ia such a way
that it will sot detract from
the beauty of the campus.
The fourth major objec
tive is to make a more at
tractive campus. The beau
ty of the campus if one of
its outstanding features at
the present time. Poor plan
ning and illogical placement
of buildings and parking fa
cilities could certainly make
a crowded, unattractive
Since aD .of these things
must be considered, the
plans for the campus have
not been completed as yet.

A proposal has been made
to establish a School of
Home Economics in the
University of .Nebraska.
Home Economics would be
added to the name of the
College: the new name to
be the College of Agricul
ture and Home Economics.
Once a School of Home Ec
onomics were established
within the College of Agri
culture and Home Econom
ics, the following five de
partments would probably
be created:
Clothing, Textiles and De
sign Food, Nutrition and In
stitutional Administra
tion Home Economics Educa
tion Home Management, Hous
ing and Equipment
Human Developmeitt.
There are many advant
ages to this proposal should
it be adopted.
L It would lead greater

apart from agriculture
and give tbem great

would make it easier to
recruit staff people in

T the editor,
Re: Phil Boroff,
In regard to your column
of Feb. 27, I wish to ques
tion some of your criti
cisms. ,
If ene mav dare apply
the term "art" to anything
that occurred at Pershing
Friday night, one could
say that the art of enter
tainment was the goal for
-whkh each group of love
lies should have been striv
ing. True, trying to achieve
such "art" was attempting
a means to the end of win
ning the trophy, but I think
most of the performers
would agree that "entertain
ing" was the most sought
after adjective of the e v e
ning. It has long been my con
tentioa that art Is, among
other things, aa IHasioi of
realitv. It it da this point
that I would defend the
Kappa Delta's skit "Quiet
Riot. Year sole criticism
f this skit was that "the
movement ti the 'back
wards sequences was aot
a consistent reverse of prev
ious action." Of this, the
Kappa Deltas were well
aware, and what yoa
termed as "inconsistent",
they - eaDed "intentional
It w as not without a good
deal of consideration that
actions in the backwards
sequences were cut It was
done because it was felt
that this added to the de
sired Cluskm of speed and
to the entertainment value
of the skit The KDs
weren't primarily concerned
with being authentic, they
were trying to entertain the
audience. (Concerning au
thenticity, they could have
done the whole skit in black
and white costumes with
white make up, but the idea
was abandoned because it
was felt that color added to
the audience's enjovment
of the skit)
If yea are critkidng the
decision to cwadease the ac
tion during the re-raa. then
I caa accept your criticism
evea though I doat agree
with it However, from the
tone of your article, I caa
only assume you feel the
Kappa Deltas were either
careless or poorly re
hearsed. Perhaps if yea had
bad the chance to honor the
KD's at rehearsal with
your time, attention and
helpful suggestions, at you
did the CM Omegas and the
Alpha XI Deltas, you would
have been aware of what
the Kappa Deltas were Irv
ing to accomplish. (Aa'd
perhaps you would have
tasted fewer sour grapes
wfeea the Alpha XT s didat
place.) Oh weB, (sigh!) we
east all lock out!
If it will make you any
ihappier, I might add that
during the performance that
night as I was "".dead" on
the stage floor, one of the
"Keystone Cops' smashed
my band as she ran across
the stage, and then in an
effort to be consistent, I am
sure she re-smashed the
same band in the ""b a c It
wards sequence.
I was also surprised by
your comment about the
Gamma Phi Beta's traveller
act. After the shew, it was

the participants that at least
part of the "disorganiza
tion" was due to the fact
that someone started the
record for the act ia the
middle instead of the begin
ning. (It is rumored that
this person is a first cousin
to the person who ran the
lights for the INC-OCM pre
sentations.) Those of ns w ho
saw the dress rehearsal
know that the act was la
reality well-rehearsed, well
timed' and weD-organized.
Whether or aot the Gamma
Phi pledges did the right
thing by continuing when
they realized the mistake is
another question to he con
sidered. At any rate, I feel
this technical blooper has
to be given some consider
ation in your critique.
