Delta Upsilon PHOTO BY HAL FOSTER "The Hag Behing The Flag" Nov. 23 is the date of Kosmet Klub's annual Fall Re vue and indications are that this year's show. Komic Kaners. i will be one of the best of recent years, according to Sally J XJfra Mrs. Hove, director of the show, said Thursday that there was much more competition this year than in the past skit tryouis. "This is my third year as director of the show, and we had much more trouble selecting four skits to parti cipate this year because the caliber of all the skits was higher. I definitely think that this competition among the fraternities will raise the level of the show even higher in the future." The Fall Revue will feature the four top fraternity skits and a number of short "Traveller Acts." , Traveller Act tryouts will be held Sunday afternoon in the Student Union. The four skits, chosen Wednesday night are "Heavenly J Harmony," Beta Theta Pi; "The Hag Behind the Flag," Delta upsilon; "it just isn t uone," Kappa Mgma; and "The Man in the Brooks Brothers Blazer," Phi Kappa Psi. Gary Hruby, Beta Theta Pi, described "Heavenly Har mony" as the story of a joint American-Russian expedition to the moon. "It portrays the difficulties they encounter and the solution they eventually find on the moon," he said. The Delta Upsilon production, "The Hag Behind the Flag," is the story behjpd the story of the first flag. Joe Smith, skitmaster, says ithat, after Betsy Ross has won a contest as the maker ofi the first flag, the truth emerges that she is employed as ja stripper in a nightclub. CITY Vol. 77, No. The Daiiy Nebraskan Friday, Nov. 8, 1963 MISSILE MODIFICATION PROJECT causes concern to Lincoln labor officials. There are conflicting reports as to who will do the project. A recent announcement by Gen eral Dynamics Astronautics said that the missile modifi cation would be done by a civilian technician team brought into the area. Later information on the project said that present employes on the project included( 139 locally hired men. CONSOLIDATION STUDY DISCUSSED by the Lincoln City Council but no immediate action was taken on the pro posals for consolidations of governmental functions in the proposed City-County build ing. It was also suggested that joint use of equipment be set up. The was has reportedly been cleared for a detailed study of consolidated tax assessing.

II iOk lifll PVAk OHaii-Sd PDW6 i 00 T Stimulate Stud e mill's By MARY McNEFF Ag News Editor Making opening remarks at at press conference held di rectly following his arrival at the University campus, Thurs day afternoon, USAF Colonel John "Shorty" Powers said he was here to tell young people Ihe rocket age had shot holes in that old adage; "the sky's the limit." Col. Powers, familiar to nation-wide radio-TV audiences as the Mercury Program as tronauts' voice during flight, is assigned to the National Aeronautics and Space Ad ministration (NASA) Manned craft Center as Public Af fairs Officer. The Colonel said he was im pressed with the campus, and said the presence of a grow ing graduate program at the University is indicative of continued progress. On campus to address Air Force ,ROTC cadets during Aero-Space Emphasis week, Col. Powers said he hopes to stimulate the young people on this campus to greater achievement, by telling of his personal experiences, and re lating facts pertaining to some of the history making-events, he has taken part in. At the same time, he said he intended to emphasize that the U.S. needs its doctors, theologians and professional journalists as well as profes sional fighting men. During a question and an- NATION HOFFA ANNOUNCES CON TRACT which would cost the U.S. trucking Industry nearly $1 million a day over a 3 year period. The proposed nation-wide contract would cov er 400,000-450,000 employes of some 16,000 trucking firms in 48 states. U.S. CONVOY DELAYED 42 hours on the Berlin Auto bahn by the Russians. They had been stopped by a Soviet demand to the U.S. command er to have his men dismount, lower tailgates, and be coun ted. A spokesman in Berlin said that these three separate and arbitary demands by Soviet authorities to change existing procedures were made in the two days. Finally the men were checked through under procedures agreed among the United States, Brit ain and France. VIET NAM REGIME is ex pected to get U.S. recognition early next week following the formation of a mixed military-civilian government. The United States apparently finds in the public announcements of the Viet Nam military com mittee assurances , that the country will return to a con stitutional, democratic form of government.

Powers said that the Soviet Union, had not now, and would not, give up the moon race, re gardless of what Premier Krushchev has said. Noting the participation of women in the Soviet space program, Powers said the last 14 astronauts selected were picked strictly on their quail fications, regardless of sex or race, but that no qualified women had applied. At this point the program to put a man on the moon by 1970 progress is being hampered by the dilly-dally ing of the Congressinal budg et committees. With the fiscal year half over, NASA still does not have money to prom ise contracts to Air Force suppliers. Asked if the moon race was really necessary from a de Fense standpoint, Powers said more knowledge of the moon is certainly desirable, and scientific and military ap plication could result. He con tinued, "If the U.S. does not maintain sufficient scientific progress to reach the moon first, our political position of pre-emenience, as well as our technological position in the world will be sacrificed." Regarding the question of the U.S.-proposed joint space venture with the Russians, Powers said it would be fool ish not to attempt to conduct joint operations, but the prob lems involved in matching American astronaut's cap sules with American rockets presents extreme engineering difficulties, and the matching of an American rocket and So viet capsule would be even more difficult. Except in two areas, Pow ers told of much greater ac complishments in space by the U.S. than the Soviets. He did credit the Russians with having bigger rockets, and launching two astronauts the same time. at Powers said his colleages in the State department re port that the "uncommitted" nations of the world are gen erally impressed by Ameri can technological progress. If the Saturn rocket project is included with the moon project, the present U.S. space program is the largest single undertaking in the history of the U.S. m terms of dollars spent. Discussing some of the benefits already derived from the space program, Powers said the Tiros weather satel lite has already taken more than 250,000 weather pictures. With such communications satellites as Telstar, Relay, and Skycom, the Russians will find increasing difficulty in maintaining strict control on the information their captive peoples receive. Powers said his purpose at the University was to find scientists and young men, and to convince these young men to trade positions with him, now that he has become only an observer on the space scene. The Colonel, on his first visit to the University cam pus, will appear on a social cial studies program on KUON-TV and address the Lincoln Kiwanis among oth er groups in the city. Powers emphasized that the effort to reach the moon is not the whole part of the U.S. space program, except ap parently in the minds of t h e press in the U.S. The pace Congress sets should and apparently does reflect the will of the people, Powers said, adding that the 5.7 billion dollar budget pro posed for the space program would probably be fixed around 5.3 billion after Con gressional action. "The shocked townspeople then visit the nightclub to watch the act and find that they like Betsy, in spite of her profession," said Smith. As a result, they decide to accept Betsy Ross as the maker of the flag but to keep the fact that she is a stripper secret. "Therefore a key line in the play," said Smith, "is 'Keep it quiet, she ran a stripper show.' " The Kappa Sigma skit, "It Just Isn't Done," is based on the apathy and conservatism of the University of Nebras ka student, according to Jim Baer, skit master. "The theme concerns the reluctance of the students to accept any change without an innovator," said Baer. The problem arises with the arrival of a group of surfers on campus. Although they attempt to convince the three campus factions to join them, lack of anyone to become the first NU surfer makes these attempts quite difficult. Baer said, "I think that this skit makes us take a closer look at ourselves and our way of life." "Just as the introduction says," said Mike Barton, Phi Kappa skit master, "we hope to breath some life into a Levi-conscious campus. Our skit is a salute to the garment conscious thoroughbred. It is an entertaining satire about Ben Sparks, an agent from Hart, Schaffner and Marx, who educates a non-Ivy Madison Avenue firm in the realm of proper dress." Tickets for the show, to be held in Pershing Auditorium at 8 p.m., are $1.50 and will be sold in the Student Union ticket booth starting today and at Pershing in a week. They can also be purchased from any Kosmet Klub worker. i M4 J L r& I - ; ' fV sjH'' 'Jl tt 41 iCfi:-.lJ " 5 si 'As - -w o '1 ; X a --, Phi Kappa Psi . Blazer" .

Student Directory On Sale Monday This year, Builders Student Directory will go on sale Mon day, according to Marilyn Peterson, chairman of the Stu dent Directory Committee. Marilyn said that the Direc tory costs $1.28 per copy to print this year, and as a re sult, the price to the students has been raised to $1.25. The difference will be made up through advertising. The Directory will be sold all day in the Main Lobby of the Student Union and from 3 to 6 p.m. in Cather and Pound Hall's lobbies. The student Directory was compiled this year using IBM cards for greater accuracy. After the pink slips were torn from the registration cards, they were sent to the Lincoin Tabulating Company which made each one into an IBM card and from these to an al phabetical list. There, was no manual typing involved and thus less chance of error. Another change in the Di rectory is its size. This year's Directory will be 8y" by 5V4" and will have an up-to- date faculty list. Each of the organized houses will have at least a page.
