"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.

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.

U.S. trucking Industry nearly

Soviet authorities to change
existing procedures were
made in the two days. Finally

swer session following his ini
tial remarks, Col. 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
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.
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
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
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.

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.
