What do I do with this add slip?
Where do I go to register for a senior
check? How do I get an appointment card
for late registration?
The woman with all the answers is
Mrs. Norma Burke, receptionist at the
counter in Administration. Mrs. Burke
goes far beyond the call of duty to help
file lost sheep of the University.
She has accepted as part of her duty
guiding students with problems to t h e
right person with the right answers in
an effort to eliminate campus wild-goose
But she goes a step further than this.
With her extensive knowledge of the Uni
versity faculty, she matches the stu
dent personality and temperment with
that of the faculty member.
"A lot of student problems are the
result of personality conflicts," said Mrs.
Burke. "The student can get the most ef
fective advice from someone who will
"I'm very proud of the deans here
at the University," she said. "They are all
very understanding and I know will do
their best with anyone I send to them.
"I always try to tell the student a
little about the person they are going to
see." according to Mrs. Burke. "The
student relaxes and is able to approach
his appointment with the right attitude.
Students are listened to with more un
derstanding if they use the right atti
tude." ' Mrs. Burke has been working as re
ceptionist for almost four years. She or
iginally became interested in the position
because of her love of people and be
cause of her many acquaintances on cam
pus. Student Influx
"I used to know many students by
name but I'm afraid I can't do that any
more," said Mrs. Burke regretfully. "I
guess it's because of the influx of stu
dents. I still know the students' faces
though and am just as interested in
"When graduation time comes I kinda
have a lump in my throat," said the re
ceptionist. "I watch the students who
have fought their way through. They
usually come out with flying colors."
"Just spread the word around that if
they have a problem, students should
come to see me," she said in conclusion.
"I like to help them and I think they
like to have someone interested in them."

Investigate the opportunity to play a vital
role in the re-establishment of the Alpha Theta
Chi chapter of CHI PHI on the Nebraska
CHI PHI is interested in mature men of
better than average academic performance
who for reasons of their own, chose not to
pledge and join a fraternity. We believe there
are many such men on the campus and we
would like to tell you of Chi Phi and our fu
CHI PHI withdrew from the University of Ne
braska campus in 1942. Few fraternities, up to that
time, produced any more illustrious Nebraska alum
ni. A devoted group of Alpha Theta Chi of Chi Phi
alumni always looked forward to the day when their
chapter could be re-established. In September 1962
dream started to unfold when a home for the chap
ter was acquired at 1345 R Street. Gilbert E. Sobie,
a graduate of the University of Oregon, and a grad
uate student in the University of Nebraska School
of Business, was selected to form a colony. He is
now in residene at 1345 R Street and would like to
talk to any man interested in more information
about the project. His phone number is 477-7835.

Result: New family of lightweight powerplants . . . Including a new
V-8 that weighs 110 pounds less than the comparable Y-8 it replaces
In our search to provide good performance with lighter
powerplants, Ford Motor Company engineers and
ioundrymen have pioneered new techniques that now
let us cast our engine blocks with such precision that
much lighter engines are made possible.
New materials used to make cores and molds and new
casting methods enable us to make engine parte with
walls as thick as necessary but no thicker. TWs
eliminates weight of extra material which must be used
to provide adequate strength with less precise casting
Reducing engine weight through precision casting
means more performance per pound and sine
lighter engines mean overall car weight can be
reduced, better fuel economy results.

and one more example of how Ford Motor Company
