The Panhellenic meeting,
Oklahoma State, consisted of
four forums on Judiciary
Boards, Pledge Guidance,
Panhellenic-IFC Relations and
Greek Ideals.
The Judiciary Board Forum
stressed the importance of
preventive measures dealing
with rush infractions. It rec
ommended having panels dur
ing the year on rules and in
forming rushees of the rules
instead of dealing with infrac
tions later.
The Pledge Guidance For
um discussed pledge pro
grams and mutual problems.
The importance of stressing
scholarship to the pledges was
pointed out.
Scholarship Incentives sug
gested were having individual
conferences with pledges to
set up a grade goal and study
schedule, having mother
daughter grade contests and
pledge contests, offering Pan
hellenic scholarships, present
ing a Panhellenic scholarship
trophy for highest house av
erage and for improvement.
The poor public relations be

Domesticated Robin Is Lincoln Student's Pet
HEY BIRD! The dncoln residence of a domesticated robin named 'TBird" is the same as that of Linda Hillyer, a
junior, of 1801 Kings Highway. The chubby little robin rates his own home within the Hillyer residence, but now that

Basic intelligence, demon
strated scholastic ability, and
an interest in college teach
ing are the qualities students
; should haw in order to p&r-
jticipate in the special scho
lastic program designed for
future college professors, said
Dr. Michael Shugrue, direc
tor of the program.
Sponsored by the Fund for
Advancement of Education, a
subsidiary of the Ford Foun
dation, the program is de
signed to encourage interest
in college teaching as a ca
reer and to permit the ac
complishment of a master's
degree in minimum time,
continued Dr. Shugrue.
He said that between 60
and 70 students will be en
rolled in the program next
fall. These win be mostly first
semester juniors although
there will be a few first se
mester seniors because the
program is just being ini
tiated. Pming that year we
hope to bring them together
in order to honor and identi
fy them as members of this
program, said Dr. Shugrue.

ple interested in the profes
sion of college teaching and

Greek Week at the University is not unique. But the
scope of Greek Week here, the number and variety of
events which it incorporates, is of recent conception.
Spokesmen for the Interfraternlty Council and the
Panhellenic Council note that the Greek System is re
sponsible for a positive contribution to the primary func
tions of the University, and that they encourage the
most complete personal development of their members
in the fields of intellectual, physical and social growth.
The IFC and Panhell have set up these standards for
the Greek System:
1. That the objectives and activities of the fraternity
and sorority should be in entire accord with the aims
and purposes of the institutions of which it is a part
2. That the primary loyalty and responsibility of a
student in his relations with the institution are to the
institution, and that the association of any group of stu
dents as a chapter of a fraternity or sorority involves
the definite responsibility of the group for the conduct
of the individual.
3. That the fraternity and sorority should create an
atmosphere which will stimulate substantial intellectual
progress and superior intellectual achievement.
4. That the fraternity and sorority should promote
-conduct consistent with good morals and good taste.
5. That the fraternity and sorority should maintain

"They will have some lim
ited teaching experience
run a lab section, give some
lectures, and act as quiz in
structors on a limited basis."
Dr. Shugrue pointed out
that the classroom experience
will give the students some
experience in the mechanics
of teaching and will gener
ate an excitement for teach
ing. "The student who begins in
this program will not be tied
to it, but he should be genu
inely interested in it before
he begins,'" he said.
As it happens frequently,
students interested in profes
sional areas know early in
their education what they
have to do in ordet to be ad
equately prepared, according
to the program's director.
The person who is going to
be a college teacher does not
know this early in his educa
tion about the requirements.
Only after his freshman year
can he become involved
enough to know that he could
become dedicated to a sub
ject and teach it, said Dr.
He noted the following ma
jor advantages to participat
ing students:
It permits speedy entry
into graduate work, clearing
the way for receipt of a mas
ter's degree in the first year
following receipt of the bac
calaureate and prompt at
tainment of the PbJX Stu
dents will begin graduate
work in their senior year.

search. It provides opportunity for

Some departments have

are in the process of plan

the exposure to top teachers
and swift moving classes will
give students a chance to
move more quickly with the
result that more of the good
ones will become interested
in college teaching, explained
Dr. Shugrue.
He said it is expected that
many of the student partici
pants will come from the
ranks of those already en
rolled in the honors pro

6. That the fraternity and sorority should inculcate
principles of sound business practice both ia chapter fi
nances and in the business relations of its members.
According to the 1961 Report of the Nebraska Inter
fraternity Council, the purpose of Greek Week is to re
assess the responsibilities of the greeks to the ideals of
their system, and to re-dedicate themselves to these
By his participation in the events held during Greek
Week, the individual greek can become better acquainted
both with his system and with its members.
Each of the events scheduled for Greek Week, 1963,
has a particular purpose which aids the ultimate purpose
of the week.
Specifically, the open houses on Sunday, give every
one the chance to view life within other chapters. The
alumni dinners aid both the fraternity system and the
University by maintaining contact with its graduates. The
seminars give the system a chance to air and possibly
solve some of the problems which face it. The greek
games are aimed at promoting a spirit of competition
between the houses. The Multiple Sclerosis Drive provides
an opportunity for the greek system to demonstrate tha
good that an organized group can accomplish.
While Greek Week is for the Te-orientation of greeks,
it offers a chance for everyone to see what the greek
system really is and what its purposes are, said IFC
and Panhellenic representatives.
ments are handling the pro
grams in each case. Each
department plans their own
programs and these programs
are then coordinated and fi
nanced by myself as direc
tor, explained Dr. Shugrue,
Department chairmen and
deans have worked out ad
visors, suggested CTrriculums,
curriculum changes, and op
eration of the program. Dr.
Shugrue said that proposals
from Teachers College, ro
mance and Germanic lan
guage departments, philoso
phy department and physics
department have been con
sidered. He added that proposals
from the following depart
ments are expected: English,
history, political science, an
thropology, geology, chemis
try, mathematics, education
al psychology and others that
wish to join.
Departments have already
suggested students who might
be interested he said.
The following devices will
be used to help select these
students, said Dr. Shugrue:
departments will select stu
dents and recommend good
sophomores, the office will
use the list of the 100 top
sophomores in scholarship,
the deans offices will supply
the names of students they
think will be interested in the
program, and interested stu
dents will be able to talk to
their advisors for more in
formation. The program, established
with a $297,500 grant from
the Ford Foundation, is set
to run through 1957. Between
60-70 students win be selected
each year.
