WEARYING WORK Truly dedicated photographers
will spend weeks trying to capture just the picture they
want. 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!

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.

could be compared with the
dinosaur. The dinosaur had
history, tradition, and
strength, but failed to adapt
to the changing environ

history, tradition, and
strength. But many edu

be able to adapt for sur

Frank M. Hallgren, Dean
of Men, stated that, "If the
fraternity system is to sur

educational influence in the
college community."
"To demonstrate ' a posi

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

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

Susan Stewart of Scottsbluff and Cheryle Warden of

state contest.
Miss Spelts was chosen by the Board of Governors of the

Hallgren stated that while
"Brotherhood" means a
sincere feeling of friend

character and social devel

a concern for the intellectu

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.

vantage o f going to the

position and frame of mind
as mine."

Another national fraterni-1

Another large national
fraternity, Sigma Alpha
Epsilon, according to exec

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

other delegations to vote a

Lundak said that the dele

the actual country they rep
resented and carried through
the personalities and temper

The former delegate said
that Nebraska should definite'

of the three that went last

that the smaller number

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

of seating the People's Re

Through legislation, the
