EDITOR'S NOTE This article was

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

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
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

Pershing Rifles
Plan Drill Meet
Pershing Rifles company of
the University will host the
fraternity's annual Regimen

More than 540 college stu

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

now registered for the meet.
Nebraska's Cadence Countess

ing. Jim Hix, rush committee
chairman, said, "Several
problems have occurred in
planning a Spring Rush week

or not to use bid cards, and
the length of the weekend,
are just a sampling of the de

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

A motion to permit both
Greeks and Independents to
attend the ball was introduced
but postponed until next

If Sevigne feels that the

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

said. Speed, regardless of

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

"Now therefore be it re
solved: That the Student

ulations as presently estab

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

committee chairman.
The nuclear facility at Hal

from all other states and na

the world's first full scale nu

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

committee to study the prob
