Walt Whitman urged us

And indeed the cult of

We're told that it may
be high time we questioned

about making it high time
we questioned the all-assuming
blundering do-good-ing

But square the ethic in

Larry Dornhoff Wins
National Math Honors
Larry Dornhoff has received
a rating in the William Lowell
Putnam Mathematical com
petition. Dornhoff, an 18-year-old
"University junior received
honorable mention in the
contest sponsored by the
Mathematical Association of
Nicolai, deputy registrar at
the University, believes there
may not be as great an aban
donment of college plans as
many educators have previ
ously been led to believe.
Applications were received
from 424 high school gradu
ates last fall who failed to re
port for registration. 185 of
these, Dr. Nicolai found, were
ranked in the top scholastic
half of their high school class
es and were considered "good
college material."
An effort was made to con
tact these students by mail,
and Dr. Nicolai received re
plies from 141 of them.
Almost three out of four,
or 72, had not abandoned
plans for college but had
not abandoned plans for col
lege but had changed them at
the last moment. They had
not registered at the Univer
sity, but decided to attend a
college "closer to home." A
little over' half enrolled in a
Nebraska institution. Only
28 of the total number of
students actually did not go
on to school, and most of
these sa;d they hoped to enter
college later. The reason for
the delay listed by one-third
of those who postponed their
college attendance was finan
cial problems.
The conclusion indicated by
Dr. Nicolai's inquiry was that
a substantial number of Ne
braska high school graduates
make simultaneous applica
tion to more than one college
or university.
Other than this, it seems
that "the great majority of
the promising Nebraska high
school graduates who are
classified as "no shows" by
the registrar of one institu
tion are actually in school
somewhere else, and that
there is a better than 50-50
chance they are attending a
Nebraska institution," Dr. Ni
colai said.
His study indicates further,
Dr. Nicolai said, that college
costs are definitely a limiting
factor on plans to attend col
lege, despite expanded stu
dent financial aid programs.
Student Council Defeats
Tassel Pledge Amendment
By Ann Moyer
An amendment to the Tas
sels constitution proposing a
change in the selection of
Tassels pledges was defeated
bv the Student Council
Wednesday and returned to
the organization for further
The amendment was among
three submitted to the Coun
cil by Tassels. It proposed
changing the selection of Tas
sels pledges from the pres
ent system of the Spring
Tassel Tea to interviews.
Each organized house was
permitted to send interested
candidates to the tea. One of
these candidates was selected
for membership in Tassels.
The defeated amendment pro
posed that for vr class
vacancy in an orgaiJzed
house, seven names might
be submitted to the interview
ing board.
The interviewing board,
composed of the executive
board and three other elected
Tassel members, would chose
new Tassel members from
the names submitted chosing
one pledge from each house.
Unaffiliated women would al
so be chosen through inter
views. The Council objection to the
amendment was that pledges
should be chosen for their in
terest and enthusiasm in the
organization rather than for
the reason that each house
should have at least one new
pledge each year.
Council members suggested
that the amendment place no
restrictions on the number of
Tassel pledges which could
be chosen from each bouse or
housing unit.
John Hoerner, chairman of
the judiciary committee,
pointed out that any amend
ment to the Tassels constitu
tion should be carefully con
sidered by the Council as Tas
sels was performing a func
tion to the campus (promot
ing spirit) initially assigned
to the Council.

OU Regents
Rush Week
(UPS) The University
of Oklahoma Board of Re
gents lowered the boom on
the Greek system at Okla
homa in a surprise move
that cut out Rush Week at
the University.
In a formal statement to
the IFC and Panhellenic
presidents, the Regents an
and sororities will not hold
the traditional pre-school
formal rush week program
in the fall of 1961.
The announcement
brought sharp opposition
from the Greek organiza
tions and students on the
campus. More than 200
chanting Greeks milled out
side the home of University
President Cross that night
in reaction to the regents
decision to abolish rush
week. The University of Ok
lahoma is a predominatly
Greek campus.
The announcement came
as a complete surprise to
students and most univer
sity officials. While the ac
tion is not yet official, the
letter sent to the two presi
dents indicated that the re
gents are unanimously in
favor of changing the sys
tem and the only step left
is a vote at their April
The two presidents were
asked to assist the univer
sity administration and re
gents in developing a new
method of pledging students
to Greek organizations.
Fraternity and sorority
leaders rushed to tele
phones trying to contact
their nationals and hoping
somehow to thwart the re
gents' move.
President Cross said that
the idea of abolishing for
mal rush was not unique at
Oklahoma. ''Informal rush
programs have been used
effectively at many major
campuses for a number of
years," he said.
Most university officials
were quiet about the sub
ject, but the students were
not. All caught by surprise
at the announcement, they

Three Law Students
Attend Conference
Three University Law Stu
dents attended the annual
Eight Circuit Conference of
the American Law Student
Association at the University
of North Dakota last week
end. James Gilsdorf, William
Hemmer and Miss B. J. Hol
comb were the University
representatives at the con
ference which included over
100 law students from nine
law schools.
Everyone likes to win at sports.
Winning takes practice, muscular
development, endurance and other
attributes. We can't all be win
ners but there is a way to help.
You can increase your endurance.
You can start out feeling in top
shape and keep going longer.
Now science proves a rub with
Absorbine Jr. Warm-Up before
exercise is so effective it almost
doubles muscle endurance! The
amazing results of Electromyo
graph Research reveal that in case
after case, the time required to
fatigue a muscle treated by
Warm-Up is almost double that
of an untreated muscle.
Prove this good news to your
self. When you take part in sports
or exercise, rub the muscles you
will use most with Warm-Up
before you start!
See if you don't do better at
sports because your muscle power
will last longer after rubbing with
Warm-Up the pre-exercise rub
that fights fatigue! Available at
