'Corkscrews' Adorn Morrill Hall
By Margy Martin
The "Devil's Corkscrews," which had paleontologists
scratching their heads for many years, has been given a
special area in Morrill Hall.
These spiraled fossils from Sioux County, which were
the homes of primitive rodents which lived some 16 million
years ago, are displayed alongside the world's largest hog
and the two-horned rhinoceroses.
The "Devil's Corkscrews," were named Daimonclices
in 1891 by the first major paleontological expedition of the
University which was led by Dr. Erwin H. Barbour, the
Museum's director from 1891 to 1941.
The Sioux County discovery greatly impressed the
first field party and Dr. Barbour wrote that they possibly
could be some ancient worms or sponges.
The fossilized burrows resembled a large evenly spi
raled vine, six to eight feet in length. Dr. Barbour later
concluded that the "Corkscrews" were fossilized plants.
Another scientist speculated that they resembled the
spirally coiled lianas common in tropical forests. He said
that perhaps they were buried in sand, the decayed to
leave a hole which later could be occupied, by animals.
However, It is generally accepted now that the "Cork

Walk, The Way the Money
Goes, and Women Suffrage.
The choreography for the
show is being done by 25
senior members of Orchesis.
Orchesis is derived from a
Greek word meaning not only
to dance, but also to know
movement in all its implica
tions as a medium of expres
sion. Modern dance groups
in colleges and universities
throughout the nation have
organized under the name of
Orchesis since 1919, when the
first group was formed at
the University of Wisconsin.
The University organization
was organized in 1927. The
purpose of the club is to
further interest in creative
dancing and to raise the
standard for dance as a form
of art.
Membership into Orchesis
is by try-outs. Orchesis is
open to University students
who have sufficient dance
experience, not only to profit
by workmg with the group,
but also to contribute to its
advancement. The students in
the group must also maintain
high scholastic records.
The officers of Orchesis
are Glenda Luff, president;
Anne Sowles, vice president;
Karen Costin, treasurer;
Judy Howard, secretary;
Ruth Read, publicity; Anna
Matuza, costumes; Jo Janet
Ginrich, properties; Mrs.
Dorothy Hughes, faculty ad
visor; Mrs. Marilyn Braught,
accompanist; and Mrs. Lynn

Spring Day Bosses Name
Thirty Committee Workers
.By Ann Moyer
Thirty University students
have been named as 1961
Spring Day workers in prep
aration for the annual event
which will be held Friday,
May 5.
The workers will be in
charge of the games, public
ity and trophies for the after
noon of fun which will be held
on the Ag campus this year.
The reason for the move from
the athletic practice field to
Ag is due to the greater fa
cilities offered on Ag for fun
and games.
The first annual Student
Council sponsored Spring Day
was held in 1956 and included
faculty participation in the
games. Chancellor Clifford
Hardin was one of the faculty
winners in the baby bottle
Over 1,000 students partic
ipated in the festivities of the
day which included the
games, a barbecue, carnival
and the Student Union's 18th
birthday celebration.
Big Weekend
In 1957, the Friday preced
ing Ivy Day was "given" to
the students for their Spring
Day events. The gaiety began
at 8 a.m. and continued until
midnight. The daytime festi
vities were centered on Ag
campus in conjunction with
the University rodeo. A car
caravan of city campus stu
dents lead off the day and
the fun was concluded by the
Union's birthday celebration
and carnival.
The 1958 Spring Day plans
were altered suddenly just a
screws" were the burows of rodents. In fact the Museum
display shows the skeleton of a fossilized beaver found in
the bottom, or nest, of one of the "Corkscrews." Through
out the geological times, the burrows were filled with roots,
volcanic ash, lime, and water, forming a natural cast,
k Dr. C. Bertrand Schultz, Museum director who has
made extensive studies of the material during the past 25
years, said the strange part of the "Corkscrews" is that
some spiral to the left and others to the right.
The only place the "Corkscrews" can be found In Ne
braska is in Sioux County, along the Niobrara and White
Rivers and along the Pine Ridge. Dr. Schultz explained
that although Pine Ridge passes through Dawes and Sher
idan Counties, no examples have been found there. "Cork
screws" have been observed in Wyoming near Lusk and
Van Tassel in Niobrara County and near Spoon Butte in
Goshen County.
He explained that both of these Wyoming counties ad
join Sioux County and that these "Corkscrew" beds are a
continuation of those in Nebraska.
The Bertha and John Agee Memorial Fund, which is
given through the University Foundation is financing the
display of the "Corkscrews."
During the morning of gov
ernment day, April 21, the
group will tour the state
capital and visit the various
offices and the unicameral.
The legislature has asked
that one of the students
speak to them.
That noon the group will
have lunch with members of
Young Democrats and Young
Republicans. In the afternoon
from 2-3:30 the Soviet group
will hold a press conference.
The evening will be high
lighted by a dinner with
Gov. Frank Morrison.
During the YW-YMCA day,
April 22, the group will travel
to Camp Brewster for a con
ference. During the evening
the group will be entertained
by the Nebraska International
Family Day
On April 23, family day,
the group will have lunch
with the families with whom
they are staying. In the aft
ernoon the Soviet group will
tour the State Historical So
ciety. The evening will be
spent with their respective
host families.
Industry day, April 24, will
be spent touring the various
industries in Lincoln.
The last day, education
day on April 25, will be
spent visiting the University,
Nebraska Wesleyan, and ele
mentary or secondary schools
in Lincoln..
At 4 p.m. on education day
there will be a discussion on
the University and Wesleyan
few days before the day of
the festival due to a legal
problem involving the raffle
of a 1941 Chevrolet. Original
plans were to give the car to
a University student who had
entered the raffle. However,
this plan was proved to be
contrary to the state law so
the car was awarded as a
prize to the contestant giving
it the best name.
A second Incident of that
year involving the law was

the nine trophies to be

Sweatshirts replaced some
of the trophies as prizes in
the IkSO Spring Day competi
tion. Among the new contests
and games were the girls' tri
cycle contest and the greased
pole contest.
This year's games will be
entirely different from previ
ous years except for the tra
ditional tug-of-wars and the

events will also be included
among the games.
