Photographer Pixie Smallwood set out with a goal. For weeks she waited camera in hand, finger on 4Jie shutter, missing meals and sleep, neglecting studying all to capture just what she was waiting for a picture of the SUN! FinaUy, the sun peeked out, and Pixie man aged to move her numb, weary, ever-poised shutter fin ger and take the picture. Dan Rosenthal and Bob Bosk ing almost stepped in the way, but failed to spoil the suc cess of a patient photographer!

"Sure, I know, just forget how Campus Housing Facilities Remain Available Harper Housing for students is not as difficult to find this se mester, according 10 w. u Jlarper, director of University ervices. Although all rooms in Scl leek Quadrangle and Burr Hall are full, the Capital Ho tel is still 10 short of its 154 capacity. Students can also live in the "bunk sections" of Sel leek. The basements have large rooms which can ac commodate approximately 14 students each. These "bunk sections" have bunk beds, desks and closet space. As a compensation for their lack of privacy, the room fee is half that for a reg ular room, j The section's ar! usually filled up at t beginning of the semester said Harper, but after two months of school the men in these areas have moved into tHle rooms upstairs replacing dropouts.

"Take off your skis and walk up," shouted someone racing by on the tow. So "ex pert" follows instructions, takes off skis, takes a step, and finds snow chin level.

Students Sell Books At Exchange In Union Several hundred books have changed hands in the Alpha Phi Omega book exchange at the Student Union since it be gan nine days ago. Located in the Union's south party room the ex change will be open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily through to morrow. "One student told me that the price we had on one par ticular book was as much as doubled by another book store," said Mark Tcply, book exchange secretary. The sellers price their own books. The book exchange sells them on consignment taking a 15 cent commission on all books over one dollar. Books selling for less than one dollar earn no commission.

To By DON FERGUSON The college fraternity could be compared with the dinosaur. The dinosaur had history, tradition, and strength, but failed to adapt to the changing environ ment. . The fraternity, too has its history, tradition, and strength. But many edu cators have asked, will it be able to adapt for sur vival, or will it, too, be come a historical footnote? Frank M. Hallgren, Dean of Men, stated that, "If the fraternity system is to sur vive it will need to demon strate that it is a positive educational influence in the college community." "To demonstrate ' a posi tive contribution, the frater nity system must become a leader in the solution of so cial problems and riot a de fender of the status quo; a leader in cultural and in tellectual development and not a debunker of the crea tive and imaginative intel lect."

Applications, available at the Student Council office, must be returned by 5 p.m. Friday. Interviews will be held Saturday from 1-5 p.m. Three delegates from the University represented Na tionalist China at the sessions last year. This year five dele gates will be selected to rep resent Algeria. Joel Lundak, a delegate Coeds Represent State In National 1 V Miss Pansing Two campus coeds will represent Nebraska in national competition in April. Ginny Pansing was chosen Nebraska's Miss Wool and Connie Spelts was named Nebraska Cherry Blossom Princess. Miss Pansing will represent the Kansas-Nebraska Sheep and Wool Council at the Miss Wool of America contest in San Angelo, Tex., March 31 through April 6. She will com pete with girls from each of the twent wool districts. As Nebraska Miss Wool, she will make appearances at fairs and state and county wool shows, will take part in wool fashion shows and will reign over Wool Day at Ak-Sar-Bcn next fall. The national Miss Wool will receive a six month trip around the U.S., a new wardrobe designed especially for her, a car for a year and a $500 scholarship to the school of her choice. Susan Stewart of Scottsbluff and Cheryle Warden of Fremont, both University coeds, were runners-up in the state contest. Miss Spelts was chosen by the Board of Governors of the State Society of Washington, D.C. to represent Nebraska in Washington March 31 through April 7. One girl has been chosen from each state. The 50 girls will attend the Cherry Princess Presentation Ball, the Coronation Ball and will ride in the Cherry Blos som Parade. At the end of the Coronation Ball a national princess will he chosen. The national princess will take a good-will trip to Japan. It was Japan that gave the cherry trees to Washington that bloom in the federal basin. Changing largely gone," indicated Earl W. Clifford, Dean of Men at Syracuse Universi ty, "and that in a very sig nificant way, a prime char acteristic, a principle di mension of fraternity expe rience that has evolved is not modern at all. but a return to the literary-scholastic origin of those or ganizations." Clifford, when inter viewed at the November meeting of the National In terfraternity confer ence (NIC) in Pittsburgh, noted that the first college fraternity was Phi Beta Kappa, now a scholastic honorary. Hallgren stated that while "Brotherhood" means a sincere feeling of friend ship, a closeness and con cern for the other person's character and social devel opment, it should also mean a concern for the intellectu al enrichment of the rest of the fraternity membesship. Nearly all of the national college fraternities were founded, at least in part, to supplement and contribute to the intellectual develop -ment of the individual. The Daily Nebraskan last year, said "The chief ad vantage o f going to the MMUN was having the oppor tunity to place myself in a position of another country besides the United States and force myself to think as I knew they did and adopt their position and frame of mind as mine." Foreign Students He explained that many of the students were foreign stu dents representing their own countries. "It was fascinating to me to see how dedicated, devoted and excited they were, and became, in representing their countries views, conunuea Lundak. He also noted the large amount of caucusing that went on outside the sessions Contests Miss Spelts ' X.". ..':A n r fr " itttnr 'iniiiiiiiiiiiiin iiiiiihhiwJI Cod? n dot i One fraternity, in its ear ly years, required regular participation in c h a p t e r room debates over curent political, social and cultur al topics. Another national fraterni-1 ty, Chi Phi, was originally patterned after a literary society. Another large national fraternity, Sigma Alpha Epsilon, according to exec utive secretary Rex Smith, had as one of its constitu tional requirements that "each member of the fra ternity chose a subject on which he had to write es says throughout his college course, for the literary meetings of the chapter." Indicative of this return to scholastic and cultural stimulation and develop ment is a program cited by Dean Clifford. The residence halls at Syracuse were encouraged to bring lecturers, one-act plays, recitals, and other forms of cultural programs into the residence halls each week. This, he noted, was to supplement the origi nal purpose of care, feed in an attempt to influence other delegations to vote a certain way. Lundak said that the American delegation held open houses almost all the time they weren't in session Lundak said that the dele gations stuck very close to the actual country they rep resented and carried through the personalities and temper ments of those people. Five Delegates The former delegate said that Nebraska should definite' ly have five delegates instead of the three that went last year. However, he pointed out that the smaller number didn't hurt them last year be cause of the country Nebras ka represented. The only two issues con cerning them directly that came up in the Security Council were the admission of Red China to the UN and the effect of radiation on the hu man body. Lundak added that he didn't believe students inter viewing for a position on the delegation should necessarily be authorities on Algeria. He said that they should have an interest in the UN and a vague familarity with its pur poses, and they can learn more about it after the inter views. Each of the five Nebraska delegates will represent Al geria on five different com mittees. One Issue One of the issues to come up on the political and secur ity committee agenda is that of seating the People's Re public of China in the UN and all its organs. Another issue is the ques tion of a permanent UN Armed Forces. In recent years the UN has had a temporary Emergency Force to deal with trouble in t h c Middle East and Africa. It does not fulfill the desire of Pop Accepts Position At NU's Med School Daniel Pop, assistant dir ector of Scholarships and Financial Aids, has accepted an appointment as Direct' of Personnel at the Univer sity College of Medicine. Dean Perry Tollman said that one of Pop's first duties will be the solution of person nel problem. involving Uni versity Hospital. "We arc' hopeful that Pop's appointment will give us the continuous contact with people seeking positions which is necessary to maintain maxi mum hospital services," Toll man said. Mdle!

"This is the type of pro gram," noted Hallgren, "that more college frater nities should incorporate to live up to their principles." At the University of Ten nessee, according to the Ad tiser to fraternities, Joseph A. Cecil, the IFC took vol untary action to correct their scholastic record. Through legislation, the IFC levied a penalty on any fraternity failing to make a 2.0 or C average. For the first quarter of failure, the chapter will lose social privileges. If there is a repeat the sec ond quarter, they add the loss of intramurals. If the deficiency continues for a third quarter, the chapter is placed on full activities probation and is suspended from the campus if the rec ord is not improved by the next quarter. Initiation averages have also been raised on many (Continued on Page 3) Wednesday, February 6, 1963 several nations for a perman ent force. The third issue discussed in this meeting will he the uni fication of the Congo. Since the Congo gained independ ence from Belgium, sectional disputes have prevented the successful formation of an ef fective central government there, and have resulted in open civil war. Due to the possible reper cussions civil strife in t h e Congo might have on world peace, the UN established an emergency force to end the shooting and secure unifica tion. Radiation Level In the special political com mittee meeting, it will at tempt to determine the levels of radiation to which man is currently exposed and the ef fects of radiation on individ uals and their descendants. Concerning the peaceful uses of outer space, the com mittee will discuss the prin ciple that international law ap plies to outer space and that it is free for exploration and use by all states, and is not subject to national appropria tion. The committee will also discuss the question of Hun gary and reports concerning the events which happened in 1956 when the USSR stationed forces there. In the economic and finan cial committee, the UN Spe cial Fund, the improvement of- world market conditions and the UN bond issue will be discussed. In connection with the bond issue, resolutions will be ac cepted on Ihs means where by delinquent nations might pay their share of the $200 million bond issue which the UN agreed to in order to overcome the financial diffi culties incurred as a result of operaton3 in the Congo and Arab-Israeli border. The r-uestions oi South West Africa, the postesHlont of the United States and An gola, and the future of t h e committee itself, will be dis cussed by the trusteeship committee. The social, humanitarian and cultural committee will take up the following issues; report of the director of the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the . Near East; question of race contact in South Africa re sulting from the policies of apartheid of the Government of the Republic of South Af rica; and the question of refugees and the right to asylum. The events will begin March 27 at the Chase-Park Plaza Hotel in St. Louis, Mo. and will last through March 30.
