For Spirit VES
SAM Five Sparks
Orange Bowl Week
Tassels, in a campaign to
generate campus spirit for
the Oklahoma football game
Saturday, is sponsoring a
"Let's go to the Orange Bowl
Week," according to Betsy
Nore, Tassels Rally Chair
man. Tassels representatives are
contacting all living units and
asking them to display a sign
during the week urging the
Huskers on to victory against
the Sooners, which would
mean the conference cham
pionship and a strong chance
for an Orange Bowl bid.
The living units are also
asked to sponsor a special
spirit project on Thursday
and Friday. The Tassels, for
example, plan to place orange
napkins on the team's train
ing table.
All Tassels and Kernals will
wear their uniforms all day
The Sigma Alpha Mu's will
maintain an "eternal victory
bonfire" in their front yard,
beginning Monday night at
7 p.m.
Tassels plans two pep ral
lies this weekend: a bonfire
rally Friday night and a rally
greeting the Huskers as they
arrive at the Field House
Saturday noon.
Miss Nore said, "We hope
that all houses cooperate with
this project, because it will
add a lot of color and spirit
to such an important game,
and encourage the team
to play their best.''
Coed Petition
Given Ross
Gerald Pierce, chairman of
the presidents of Cather Hall,
said that a petition containing
the signatures of 410 women
from Pound Hall and 296 men
from Cather Hall favoring
permanent coeducational dor
mitories was presented last
week to Vice Chancellor G.
Robert Ross.
Pierce told the Daily Ne-
braskan that coed living has
numerous benefits for its par
' ticipants. "I've said " before
and will repeat now that men
live like animals when there
are no women around. Good
living helps to mature men,
especially freshmen, to bring
out shy people to socialize
and, generally, forces them
to develop their personali
ties." "We intend to get some
permanant or definite ar
rangement designed along
these lines," he said, "Either
now or in the near future."
Present plans will shift the
men out of Cather Hall when
the proposed mens' residence
halls are ready for occupancy
in the fall of 1965. The peti
tion calls for permanant coed
living arrangements in Twin
Towers as well as the new
Pierce added that he, as
well as other proponents of
the petition have conferred
with several administrative
officers, and plans to discuss
the project extensively in the
future as well.
"All of the people we talked
to," he concluded, "expressed
surprise at the mature atti
tude shown by most of Cath
er's men this year."

Colored People (NAACP).
Walter Fordham, a Univer

Mrs. Leola Bullock, chair
man of the Lincoln NAACP

suggested that the students
follow up the drop-out study
with interviews of some stu
dents who have dropped out,
and with students known to be
considering dropping out, to
show the latter the disadvant
ages of such action, the ad
vantages of a continued edu

similar programs have been
organized in Chicago and New
York and have proven to be
quite successful.

trainee will interview seven
of the students. "The work
