Rally time is here agaftrs the first football game
of the season rapidly approaches.
A in the past the rally will start at the Carillon Bell
Tower at 6:45 p.m., moving towards and then down 16th
Street, turning west on "R" Street and finally ending up
at the Student Union.
Leading the students will be the Cornhusker Yell
Squad captained by Gary McClanahan, 1961 Yell King.
McClanahan has urged every student that can attend to
do so and make the rally an all-University affair. Backing
up the Yell Squad will be the Cornhusker marching band
with their new double-time step.
A few new rules are in force, among 'them a rule that
no placards or signs can be carried by organized groups.
This will supposedly limit some of the roughness that has
been characteristic of several past rallies.
Activities at the Student Union on Saturday will in
clude the touchdown buffet in the Pan-American room
before the game and a coffee hour immediately following
the game until 5:00 p.m. All students, parents, and mem
bers of the faculty are invited to attend.
Edelmanri Resigns IFC
Faculty Advisor Position
By Bob Nye
Don Ferguson, president of
the IFC, announced the res
ignation of Dr. Alex T. Edel-
mann as faculty advisor for
the organization.
Dr. Edelmann stated in his
letter to the IFC that he had
recently been given additional
advising duties within the
political science department
that require considerable

Will Host
The University of Nebras
ka may host the 1965 con
gress of one of the largest
assemblies of world-leading
scientists, Dr. C. Bertrand
Schultz announced today.
This announcement was
made on Dr. Schultz's return
from the 1961 Congress of In
ternational Association on
Quaternary Research, held in
Warsaw, Poland.
The 1965 congress, tentative
ly planned for the Nebraska
Center for Continuing JKduca
tion. will be composed of
leading paleontologists, an
thropolo gilts, geographers,
meteorologists and geophysi-
cists from all over the world.
According to Dr. Schultz,
the choice was made because,
"We have some of the best
material of this age in the
world, including Russia where
some living evidence of the
ice age still persists. Many
of the European and Asian
scientists as well as Ameri
c a n authorities expressed
great satisfaction with the
choice of Nebraska."
In addition to scientific
evidence of the ice age that
has been gathered by the Uni
versity for many years, Ne
braska's central location in
the United States supported
the choice. A final factor was
the new Nebraska Center for
Continuing Education.
Dr. Schultz, director of the
University of Nebraska State
Museum, was chosen as Great
Plains delegate by the Na
tional Academy of Sciences
and the National Research
Council. He also represented
the American Society of
Vertebrate Paleontology at
the 1961 congress In Poland
which was attended by 500
authorities from 38 countries.
Gallery Receives
Valuable Art Gift
The University Art Gal
leries have been selected as
one of a group of American
art museums to receive a gift
of over $5,000 in works of
contemporary American ar
tists. The offer is made through
the agency of the American
Federation of Arts, which is
acting as administrator for
an anonymous donor.
Small museums in the Unit
ed States, selected by the
donor, may choose for their
collections at least two works
of art costing up to $5,000.
These works are paid for by
the donor, through the Fed
eration. Works selected may be of
any medium, but it is stipu
lated that they may be by
young American artists who
have not otherwise received
national recognition through
museum purchases, exhibi
tions and awards. The select
ed works will remain in the
collection of the donor for one
year and will then be turned
over to the museum recipient
to Rally
regret leaving ... . it would
surely help the IFC, possibly
some other campus organiza
tions too, if faculty time spent
with them could be recog
nized as service to the Uni
versity as much as is activ
ity within a department."
In other IFC business it
was announced that the asses
ment for each pledge within
a house will be $7. Two dol
lars will go to the IFC as the
pledging fee and $5 will be to
supplement the bill for hous
ing at Selleck.
The individual houses were
asked to submit names in
order to pick a slate for the
recent vacancy of a Student
Council representative from
Teachers College.
Don Fergueson announced
that the Dr. C. B. Schultz
Community Service Award
will be given to the house
which has the best record on
community service during the
current school year. This
special trophy is given in
honor of Dr. Schultz's twelve
years of dedicated service to
the IFC as an advisor. Dr.
Schultz resigned last spring.

Lucky Tourist Becomes Russian Guinea Pig
By Sue Hovik
"Just Luck!" was the
reason Ross Barker, fresh
man from Reno, Nevado,
was able to take a two
week trip to the Soviet Un
ion last November as a
member of KLM employ
ee's tour.
Acting as Soviet guinea
pigs for testing Ground Con
trol Approach equipment at
a Russian airport was their
first experience as they en
tered the Soviet Union.
Barker explained that the
Russians don't give any
weather forecasts until
planes enter the Soviet ter
ritory. The night they flew
in to Moscow, the city was
receiving its first snow fall
of the season and they had
to land by Ground Control
Approach (GCA).
"Since the airport was'
only a year old, they hadn't
had a chance, to previously
test their GCA equipment,"
said Barker.
Their guide, who met
them at the airport was
"good looking" compared to
the way the other Soviet
women dressed and looked,
he said. She spoke perfect
English and understood not
only the words, but also any
satirical or sarcastic tone

Jazz artist George Shearing chats with Nora Chandler,
a visitor from Shearing's native land of England. Miss
Chandler had previously met Shearing in San Francisco
soon after his arrival in America.
Shearing appeared at the Student Union three times
during his visit at NU. An informal interview was held in
the Crib during the afternoon before he and his quintet
presented two evening concerts to crowds totaling nearly
1500 fans.
European Study Programs
Now Open for Application
The application period for
three spring semester under
graduate European study pro
grams offered by the Insti
tute of European Studies
is now open.
Sophomores and juniors who
meet the minimum standards
for each of the programs may
apply until Dec. 15. The three
programs are located in Vien

and Paris.

a smile, this was also a
"lie" because they weren't
allowed to take pictures of
airports, railroads, or
bridges. .
Good Food
Barker happily reported
that the food was much bet
ter than they had expected
although it still didn't reach
American standards. The
menu seemed to consist of
soup, carrots, cabbage, etc,
with a definite lack of eggs,
he said, and vodka and
champagne, ordered in
grams, was quite expensive.
Barker didn't see any
restaurants as we know
them except in hotels. They
served three meals a day
but had no choice of menu.
, The impression Barker
received of Moscow was
that it was a dalL drab, and
dirty city. This, he explained
could be because they use
coal for heat. It appeared
like a country fifty years
behind and trying to catch
up, according to Barker.
Even brand new buildings
had old style architecture,
he said.
The average wage is
about S0 a month and men's

will be used to checu out tne

find. Any reserve book may
be used in the central reserve

dent desires.

Barker noted there was
little use of cosmetics, the

Children Wanted Gum
Barker said that one of
the more embarrassing
parts of the trip was the
little kids asking in English
for gum or other questions
.and he couldn't answer in
'Russian. The "kids love
gum" and will trade many
thing for it, he said. One
member of the tour traded
gum for a secret service

"Our tendency not to dis
agree because we might lose

this uniformity really con

NU Parking
Ticket Costs
Total $12,672
Captain Eugene Masters,
head of the University police,
disclosed that the police col
lected $12,672 in parking fines
last year.
The fines were used as part
payment on the paving of the
north Selleck parking lot.
It was announced that Elton
Geary has joined the police
force for the coming year
bringing the size of the force
to 14 men.
Captain Masters also stated
that many of the parking reg
ulations have been clarified.
The clarifications are:
Parking on the green lines is
not to exceed 15 minutes;
parikng in the service drives
is only for the purpose of
loading or unloading; backing
into stalls on the metered
lots or the south Selleck lot
will be a violation.
The reason that backing
into a stall is a violation is
the possibility of damaging
the meters and the shrub
bery. Captain Masters also an
nounced that beginning Mon
day tickets will be given for
all violations. P r e v i o usly,
warning tickets have been is
