Cadence Countess Organization ct Expert
Created Dunns: Coffee Break nu Campus
By Eleanor Billings
What was intended to be
only an informal discussion
over coffee resulted in the de
cision to form the Cadence
Countesses, one of the only
women's drill teams of its
kind. .
The group was formed m
October, 1959, by Capt.
Charles J. Svoboda, assistant
professor of Military Science.
Their first performance that
vear was at the 1959 Military
This was followed by trips
to various high schools
around the state to give per
formances at half time. Next
came an exhibition in a drill
meet at Iowa University. The
Countesses last performance
last year was at the Phalanx
drill competition in April.
In addition to its function
as a precision drill team, the
Countesses last performance
hostesses at all military so
cial events and members are
honorary members of Persh
ing Rifles
March in Boots
Another distinctive feature
is that the Countesses march
in majorette boots, while
most other women's drill
teams march in heels.
The Countesses' record for
their first two years of exist
ence has been very outstand
ing. This year they performed
at the Utah State-N'ebraski
basketball game, the M i 1
tary Ball and at Illinois
University, where they won
their first trophy of recogni
tion. The Countesses performed
in Minnesota in April and
wound up the year again with
the Phalanx meet.
Orange Blossom Hope
The Cadence Countesses
were accepted as participants
in the Orange Blossom Fes
tival in Washington this year
and although they were un
able to go this year, they
hope to participate next year.
The red capes and caps
worn by the Countesses were
given by the University.
Soviets Make Favorable Impression
In University Student House Visits
By Jaa Sack
Campus reaction to the So
viet delegates who visited the
campus last week seems to
be favorable from the reports
by the different houses that
they visited last Monday eve
ning. Nickola Bevad, the inter
preter; Yanis.Vaivods, the
Journalist for the Soviet
Youth; and Mavr Davtyan,
the lawyer, were guests of
Bet Theta Pi for dinner.
The group was at the fra
ternity from about 5:30 p-m.
to 7:3ft. Beta Grant Gregory
said that most of the time
they talked about education
and the Soviets seemed to!
have the impression that
American college students
didn't have to attend 1 e c
tures. The Soviets said that they
didn't see how American stu
dents could learn anything in
just four years. They seemed
sort of bewildered that the
University gave degrees for
much less work than in Rus
sia, Gregory said.
.Channel Changers
"A television set with re
mote control seemed to fas
cinate them as they played
with changing the channels,"
Gregory said.
candles. "They couldn't quite
understand all this at first,"
said Miss Parker, "but after
they saw it some of the prob
lems were cleared."
"They talked a great deal
about everything and were
willing to answer all que !
tions," said Miss Parker.
Delta Delta Delta sorority
hosted the other three Soviet
guests Monday evening.
Guests at dinner were Vadim
Koptilin, lecturer; Yuri Bych
kov, mechanic; and Gumar
Telyashev, the oil engineer.

What does the future hold
in store for the Countesses?
They hope to tour more .high
school basketball games for
half-time performances and
perform at more Nebraska
games here at home.
Tryouts for next year's
group will be held May 9,
with preliminary practice ses
sions on May 2, 3, and 4.

The Lincoln City Bus Lines

Leo Whitson, superintend

in a special interview, that
the bus lines have just
changed over to their new
summer schedule and that
"possibly by next fall some
thing can be w orked out along
the lines of the proposal."
Whitson received a five
page letter and a copy of the
proposal from the University

"The system now provided
by the Lincoln City Bus Lines

The report continued by
showing how, because of the
buses running only every half
hour with schedules that fluct
uate a great deal, it is some
times impossible to reach
classes on time or at ail.

Law Day USA is being ob
served throughout the nation
today by a proclamation by
Pres. John F. Kennedy.
The observance started four
years ago to counteract the.
Soviet's observance of May
Day when they display their
mighty war machines in a pa
rade in Red Square.
Law Day may have a par
ticularly deep meaning this
year because Communism is
so near America's front door
Cuba. According to Associ
ated Press reports enthusi
asm has been building up for
rallies in Havana, Camaguey
and Santiago de Cuba today.
Here on the University cam
pus Law Day was observed by
& convocation at 10 a.m. when
Judge W. W. Nuernberger
spoke on "The Lawyer and
the Juvenile Court." Nuern
berger was appointed to the
cost of juvenile judge in De
cember of 1960.
