By BOB KRALL More than one loyal Ne braska track enthusiast has said something like the fol lowing, "Why he won the high jump at the state high school meet with a 6-5 ef fort, but he hasn't done a thing for the Huskers." When a collegiate track coach begins his annual re cruiting drive, he has the times, heights and distances for many outstanding high school tracksters. Can this track coach pick the athletes with the best high school marks and be sure that they are the best prospects for collegiate competition? Not always. Maybe that's why Ne braska track coach Frank Sevigne has a plaque with the Optimist Creed on h i s office desk. "We have the times, heights and distances of many prospects, and these i offer some help for the track coach," Sevigne said, "But these figures don't make it much easier for a track coach to evaluate ROYALTY Finalists for the Independent Spring Ball which will ht are: (front row) Sara Wagoner, Jane Fauquet, Joyce Baumanrc, Fritchie; (back row) Gary and Bennie Nelson. dation every Sunday at 9 a.m. and on Maunday Thursday at 7 p.m. The Newman Catholic Stu dent Center will hold masses twice every day except Sat urday at 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. On Saturday mass will be held at 7 p.m. and noon. Catholics may also attend confessions at 4:30 p.m. ev ery day. On Saturday there will be confession at 7:30 a.m. as well as 4:30. The Episcopal St. Nicholas House students will daily read the evening office at 5 p.m. The Lutheran Student church is holding Lenten ves per services every Wednes day at 7 p.m. Points Out ufure Frocli talent than for a football or basketball coach. "We have had a number of state champions that haven't made it here at the University," Sevigne pointed out. The successful predic tion of how a trackster will fare in collegiate competi tion involves a "big element of luck," Sevigne said. However, there are at least two factors which help to improve the reliability of the times, heights and dis tances. Consistency of per formance throughout the high school track season is one of these variables. Sevigne said, "We will not be interested in a high jumper who goes 6-5 once and only 6-0 the rest of the year." The degree of competition is another variable. "A :51 quarter mile in Funk, Nebraska means much more than a :51 quar ter mile in New York City. Each year, then, with a certain amount of wariness, Sevigne utilizes four types of contacts for information of attention-drawing high school tracksters. These Winkelbauer, Leland Volker, Be Chosen Finalists House Council and Missouri Lutheran Chapel. Janet Watson, Piper Hall, is major ing in sociology and is president of Piper Hall, member of IWA board, Wesley Foundation, WRA council, UNSEA and Pi Lamda Theta. Bruce Hoiberg, Unicorns, is a sociol ogy major, and a member of Unicorns and People to People. Bennie Nelson, Selleck Quadrangle, a philosphy major, is a member of RAM, Alpha Phi Omega, and is president of Cotner School of Religion, Aylesworth Fel lowship and a dorm counselor in Selleck. Leland Volker, Burr Hall, a Dairy husbandry major, is treasurer of Ag Exec board, and a member of Ag-Y, Varsity Dairy club, Alpha Zeta and Burr Hall. Bob Krumel, Brown Palace, is a mechanical engineering major, and is vice president of ASME, co-chairman of the mechanical engineering department's E-Week program and a member of Sig ma Tau and Pi Tau Sigma. Gary Lee Winkelbauer, Selleck, a mu sic major, is vice president of Bessey House and member of Gamma Lamda and Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia. Pershing Rifles Plan Drill Meet Pershing Rifles company of the University will host the fraternity's annual Regimen tal Drill meet on April 5-6. More than 540 college stu dents from across the coun try will participate in the meet, consisting of displays and drill competition. The competition will run from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and will be held in the coliseum. Nine IDR drill platoons, nine drill teams and five wom en's exhibition drill teams are now registered for the meet. Nebraska's Cadence Countess es will participate in that part of the meet. Applications Due Tomorrow is the deadline for upperclass scholarship and National Defense Educa tion Act loan applications. SEVIGNE . . . 'Involves Luck' contacts are: men he went to school with, friends he has met through their inter est in track, alumni of the University and his former athletes. t These sources send the times, heights and distances plus other information on prospective collegiate track athletes to Sevigne. "Former athletes are my best source of information regarding prospects," Se-' Jv cerning the details of the re cently proposed Spring Rush weekend were submitted to the Interfraternity Council (IFC) last night. Each house will discuss possible answers to these questions and report its deci sion at the next week's meet ing. Jim Hix, rush committee chairman, said, "Several problems have occurred in planning a Spring Rush week end. When to have it, whether or not to use bid cards, and the length of the weekend, are just a sampling of the de tails involved." In other committee reports, Affairs committee chairman John Lonnquist reported that the Greek Week Ball will be significantly changed from previous years. 'We could bring in a group like the Astro's from Colorado to make it a casual affair,". Lonnquist said. "If this were done, I believe a substantial majority of the Greeks would attend and thus make the af fair a highlight of Greek Week," he said. A motion to permit both Greeks and Independents to attend the ball was introduced but postponed until next week. Bill Buckley, president of the IFC, said that the mo tion will probably passt - - A In other business, the" new ly-selected members of the Affairs, Judicial, Rush, Fra ternity Management Associa tion, Pledge Training, Schol arship and Public Relations committees were announced. Affairs committee members include: Ron Adams, Sigma Pm Epsilon; Jim Baer, Kap pa Sigma; Jim Korskoy, Beta Theta Pi; Jim Moore, Sigma Nu; Larry Webster, Beta Theta Pi, Leroy Breslow, Sig ma Alpha Mu; Gaylord Ger ber, Sigma Alpha Epsilon; Jerry Krolter, Phi Gamma Delta; Buzz Madsen, Phi Del ta Theta; and Joe Smith, Delta Upsilon. New members of the Judi cial committee are George Rosmaren, Delta Tau Delta; John Cosier, Phi Kappa Psi; John Reiser, Kappa Sigma; Gary Radii, Sigma Chi; Glenn Korff, Sigma Phi Epsilon; Jim DeMars, Theta Xi; Mick Sumnick, Phi Gamma Delta; Charles Marchbull, Alpha Tau Omega; Stan Miller, Beta Sigma Psi; and Bill Bullock, Beta Theta Pi. The new Rush committee Continued On Page 3 Stars vigne said. For example, Keith Gardner, who still holds several Big E'ight records and who is now a high school track coach in Kingston, Jamaica, inter ested Sevigne in Victor Brooks, now a Cornhusker trackster who is a leading contender for the Big Eight Championship in the broad jump. If Sevigne feels that the prepster has potential, he contacts him, many times by telephony. Sevigne said that he runs up a pretty big phone bill each summer. Sevigne likes to contact each prospect personally, if possible. He also likes to see the boy run, but many times this is not possible as the college and high school track seasons prac tically coincide. "If you can see a kid run, you can look for his physi cal potentialities," Sevigne said. Speed, regardless of the race the boy runs, and size thin and not short legged are characteris tics of fine runners, he added. "You can find examples to disprove this theory, but a track coach can tell class mi (Gods' "It is just plain getting out ot hand. That motion has as much value as saying we should impeach the Governor because he cut four million dollars out of his recommen dation for the University bud get. We re trying to do some thing serious, so let's do it." With this comment by Dick Weill, Student Council began a short discussion on Steve Christensen's motion that Council advocate reform of women's regulations. The resolution, which was defeated, read: "Whereas, regulations as to women's housing and hours are unduly restrictive, de grading, and drastically in need of revision 'at the Uni versity; and "Whereas, we, the Student Council of the University of Nebraska believe firmly in equality of the sexes; and "Whereas, we deem the steps taken by the Universi ties of Texas, Oklahoma, Mi chigan and Wisconsin to be concomitant with, and exem plary of the emancipated stat us of the American woman; "Now therefore be it re solved: That the Student Council go on record as ad vocating needful reform of the outdated and puritanical reg ulations as presently estab lished by administration and enforced by AWS." I Union To Sponsor Hallam Plant Tour The Union Trips and Tours committee is sponsoring a trip to the Hallam Nuclear Plant March 9, which will give University students an opportunity to see atomic pow er at work, according to Su sie Pierce, trips and tours committee chairman. The nuclear facility at Hal lam distinguishes Nebraska from all other states and na tions, Miss Pierce said. It is the world's first full scale nu clear plant employing a so dium graphite reactor. It is also the nation's first commercial nuclear plant west of the Mississippi, she said. The reactor, designed by Atomics International for the Atomic Energy Commission, is undergoing testing opera tions and is scheduled for full power later this year. The building which houses the re actor is eight stories tall and extends the same distance be low ground. Involves when he sees it," Sevigne emphasized. An example of Sevigne's ability to spot that class is freshman Dave Crook of Bellevue, whom Sevigne says is going to be a good half-miler. "Crook's times in high school did not indicate he would be good in college," Sevigne said, "If we relied on times alone, we would not have been interested in him." Crook has tdready run a 1:58 half-mile this year. Proof of Sevigne's recruit ing success is the prediction that Nebraska's track team is a leading contender for the Big Eight Indoor Cham pionship for the second straight year. But when one trys to pre dict the winner of the Kan-, sas City meet of tomorrow and Saturday, he again runs into the unreliability of com paring times, heights and distances. First, the field houses, where these marks are made, vary as to size and type of track. For example, a :51 Quarter on Nebraska's Christensen pointed out that Wisconsin and Michigan give senior girls keys and have no sign out sheets. They lock the doors at certain times. Sally Larson, AWS repre sentative on Council, said that AWS is aware of regula tions at other universities, and is always willing to look for changes if needed. Christensen said, "I felt that the similar actions of oth er colleges should be consid ered here. Moderate modifi cations should be made in the regulations." You can't leg islate morals, he added. He also noted that most seniors are of legal age to vote and drink and other priveleges should necessarily follow. In other action, Council de feated the following motion by Bill Dunklau because of a lack of reasonable and ade quate enforcement: "Whereas, it is the func tion of the student traffic flow committee to study the prob lem of traffic flow in major campus buildings and conse quently make recommenda tions; and "Whereas, the committee has tried three one-way sys tems in Burnett Hall and found that these systems ac tually help the flow; "Whereas the third system The total cost of the plant, including research, develop ment and engineering is $57 million, of which the AEC contributed $51 million and Consumers Public Power $5 million. An additional cost of $20 million was required to install the turbine generator, fossil fuel boiler and plant auxili aries. The plant is capable of producing 75,000 kilowatts of electricity, or enough to supply power for a city of a 100,000 population. According to Miss Pierce the tour will consist of an explan ation of the plant's functions and facilities by a guide, ob serving a model of the plant and a tour through the plant Bus transportation will be provided to and from Hallam at a cost of $1. Interested students may sign up at the Union Program Office. The number of students for the trip has been limited to 65, Miss Pierce said. indoor track is equal to a :50 quarter on many other tracks. Another unknown is t h e competitor's personality. Is he able to get up for the big meet, or will he choke up? "A guy can have a time of :06.2 in the 60-yard dash, but it doesn't mean much if he hasn't beaten anybody. It is more important to see whom he has beaten, than what time he has run it in," Sevigne said. A good example of this is provided by the Nebraska Colorado track meet of Feb. 16. One Colorado vaulter cleared 12-6; another did not do that well, but both of those Buff vaulters had pre viously cleared 13-9. Will Nebraska win its first Big Eight Champion ship in any sport since 1950? Will the Husker track team be privileged to wear white "N" sweaters white let ter sweaters worn only by Big Eight Champions? Ne braskans will know Satur day night. Coach Sevigne said, "That's what makes ath letics what they are the element of the unknown." ILiicIt yrfew is the most desirable from the standpoint of the students; "Therefore, be it resolved that Student Council present one-way signs in Burnett Hall be established on a perma nent basis and a suitable method of enforcement be en acted." Doug Thom reported that the first of the noon luncheon programs for the senators, "Statehouse Luncheons" will be held Thursday with five senators, and Lt. Gov. Dwight Burney. Five students from each of their districts have been contacted to dine with them. The next program is planned for March 21. Don Burt announced that Susie Pierce is new chairman of the academic and faculty committee. Steve Honey, chairman o election committee, an nounced that the preliminary election for May Queen wiU be held next Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., on Ag cam pus and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., on city campus. Dunklau announced that the University Amateur Radio Club and the Nebraska Arab Student Association have been put on a two-week probation period because, they failed to file Organization Registration forms with the Division of Stu dent Affairs since the election of new officers.
