Housing Code
With the development of
the Division of Environmental
Health and Safety as part of
the University Health Serv
ice, a housing code for stu
dent residences was formu
lated. Four basic principles have
guided the University's con
cern about the kind of hous
ing provided for its students.
Generally healthful housing
must supply:
1. The basic physical
health needs;
2. The basic mental
health needs;
3. Protection against con
tagious disease; and
4. Protection against acci
dents. These general standards
of a healthful environment
for University students are
specified in the Housing Code
approved by the University
of Nebraska Board of Regents
on April 22, 1958.
The code, administered by
the Division, is applicable to
all dwelling places for Uni
versity students.
All housing units meeting
the code's requirements are
registered in the office of the
Division of Student Affairs.
Thnse units which come with
in its provisions have until
Sept. 1, lifts, to compiy witn
the requirements.
The purpose of the Housing
Code is to establish minimum
standards governing the con
dition and maintenance of
of dwellings and supplied
utilities and facilities. It is
also aimed at fixing certain
responsibilities and duties of
end occucants of
dwellings and authorizing the
inspection or such dwellings.
According to Dr. Feunning,
the chief objectives of ' the
over-all health Including both
the Housing Code and the En
vironmental Health Code, pro
gram are the nrevention of
accidents and illness, and the
maintaining of students'
"The supporting aspect to
ward accomplishing this goal
is a healthful environment,"
said the medical director.
By controlling the factors
in the environment we live
in such as housing, food, and
water we can accomplish
these objectives, he ex
plained. Developed to raise the
standard of living for Univer
sity students, the code has
"gone a long way in main
taining their health," said Dr.
Feunning. .
"We have had good coop
eration from all houses in
making gradual changes," he
"We have noticed a definite
elimination of certain of the
illnesses that plagued us
when this program started,"
commented the medical di
rector. For example, acute gas
troenteritis (diarrhea) once
plagued whole housing units.
The illness is more of a rarity
now. ,

the future development of that
The art work has been pub

Bridgeport's Chamber of Com

Committee. It -was accom
panied by a critical examina

central business district by
Patrick Horsbrugh, professor
of architecture at the Univer

Bridgeport to conduct a
thorough study of the city's

The professor requires all
students in his civic design
class to take part in "'Obser

Eating facilities can be a
common route for the trans
mission of organisms, he ex
plained. To prevent the spread of
microorganisms via the food
route, all food handlers, such
as cooks and bus boys, are
required to have a food hand
ler's card as a requirement
for working in a registered
housing unit.
. Food Card
The card certifies that the
food handler has had a chest
X-ray, a review of his health
record, and that he has at
tended food handling lectures
sponsored by the . University
Health Service.
These annual lectures ori
entate food handlers on how
microorganisms may spread
and their prevention and pro
vide basic information on the
proper and safe handling and
serving of food.
10th St. Lot
Vine lots are usually from
one-half to one-third empty."
"The real parking prob
lem," said Pittinger, "is that
every student wants to drive
to the front door of Social
Sciences to park his car, an
impossibility under any cir
cumstances." New Lot?
Questioned about plans for
a new lot to replace the
Area No. 1 lot which will be
eliminated by the construc
tion of the new dorm, Pittin
ger said that "the University
has no plans for a lot near
the new dorm" since there is
not enough land in the eastern
sector of city campus for one
to be built.
In a report on the availa
bility of campus parking tak
en in the week of Oct. 30 to
Nov. 3, Capt. Eugene Masters
of the campus police reported
that 30 to 75 parking spaces
are available on city campus
during the peak Monday and
Wednesday, 9-12 a.m. rush
"The total," he said, "ex
cludes the 150-200 spaces in
the Nebraska Hall lot."
"Only two lots on the city
campus are consistently full,"
Masters reported, "the 10th

The freshman will not be
deprived of his car, how
ever," said Pittinger, "as he

To Meet
Interested students will
meet Wednesday at 7 p.m. in
the Student Union to form the
Nebraska Chapter of the Col

The meeting will be held as
a result of last week's meet

the CCUN, said Bill Buckley,
state chairman of the CCUN
and Student Council member.
Last week's student meet

This Wednesday's meeting
will also discuss the Midwest

"Students interested in ap

As one of four- University
representatives to the Na
tional Interfraternity Confer
ence (NIC) in Boston, Nov.
30-Dec. 1, Ferguson predicted
that "with the steady growth
of the fraternity system in the
last ten years, and with pres
ent expansion plans of na
tional fraternities, the fra
ternity system has just started
to make its most progressive
movement in its history."
Attended by some 700 under
graduates, graduates and ex
ecutives of 62 national fra
ternities and deans of c o I
leges, the NIC acts as
a strong advisory and coor
dinating group for the the fra
ternity system.
The key topic of the NIC
was expansion," said Fergu
son. "Delegates believed that
within the next few years the
fraternity system will expand
greatly, tne university and.
the Big-8 to figure promi
nently in this expansion."
Strong System
John Nolon, another d e 1 e
gate to the NIC said that
"the IFC and fraternitv sys
tem at the University is one
ot tne stronger systems in the
U.S. .
"There is very little in new
ideas for the fraternity sys
tem that our IFC has not
used or adopted," he added.

nity system, Ferguson said,
h is time that we quit
spending time to defend the
few criticism that are leveled
against us and begin selling
the geed aspects of the fra
ternity which the public hears
little about.
"Founded as supplementary
to the educational institution,
there is little argument with
the fraternity's program in
character and personality de
velopment, with its atmos
phere conducive to good schol
arship, with its constructive
pledge training program, and
with its social and intramural

"These positive aspects of
fraternity life will be empha
sized in area public relations
workshops, a NIC public re
lations handbook to be pub
lished and in a National Fra

and supervised by the NIC,"
Ferguson added.
Ron Gould, another dele
gate, said that "numberwise,

over two million undergrad

"Our IFC sponsored a well
received morning coffee hour
at the conference with the
executive-secretaries of all
national fraternities r e p r e
sented on campus," said
"We explained to them the
strength and functions of the
fraternity system at he Uni
versiy, of which we could
give an excellent account."
Delegate Roger Myers said,
"In comparing our IFC with
the ideal IFC's projected at
the conference and with that
of Oklahoma State, which was
awarded the over-all IFC rec
ognition for 1961, 1 see no rea
son why this IFC cannot
capture the 'outstanding' title
for 1962."
Nolon said that the Frater
nity Management Association
(FMA) suggested for the Uni- '
versity to meet all the criteria
outlined for such a program
at the NIC.
"Our program was much
respected and used as a mo
del for discussing such pro
grams there," Nolon said.
One unique practice which
the IFC at Oklahoma has
adopted is the substitution of
an IBM machine for a rush
week," Nolon said. "The ma
chine matches the rushee with
the house in what Oklahoma's
IFC president calls a 'flaw
less' success."
"The University especially
is being Viewed by several
national fraternities as a site
for immediate expansion,"
Ferguson said. "National rep
resentatives will be on cam
pus within four to six months
to survey the campus and
make a decision on colonization."
