Plethora Of Old Landmarks
By Marv McNeff
Ag News Editor
A graduating class hasn't
presented a memorial to the
University since 1921. But
the ag campus is rich in
landmark memorials given
prior to that date.
The tradition and inspi
ration attached to these me
morials Is almost awesome.
This has been added to in
recent years by gifts to the
University from private in
dividuals. .
For Instance, there's the
statue in Ag Hall, pre
sented by the class of 1915,
apparently representing La
dy Wisdom. North of the
Department of Information
Building is the Sundial pre
sented by the class of 1920,
in memory of World War I
soldiers. However its most
important part, the pointer,
is missing.
A landmark soon to be
torn down is the Chemergy
building, a versatile red
brick structure built in
1904. Besides the uses its
name implies, it has been
City-Ag Bus Discontinued
During Final Exam Week
The intercampus bus will
probably not run during the
period of final examinations,
according to Eugene Ingram,
director of purchases and
special services. .
"Our lease with the Lincoln
City Lines provides that the
buses be scheduled to run
only when classes are sched
uled," said Ingram. "If the
students would ride it, we
could probably do it. How
ever, if we run it for one
day and they don't ride it,
it could sink us."
He pointed out that much
of the bus use would be travel
to and from the library. Cut
ting down on the number of
runs and running just a few
times a day would probably
not help this situation much,
he said.
"The regularly scheduled
buses will still be available
so the students will not be
stranded," said Ingram.
The regular bus will pick
up students on 14th street to
go to ag campus at approxi
mately 8:15, 8:37, 9:05 ; 9:40,
10:15, 10:50, 11:25 and 12 in
the morning and in the after

4:55, 520, 545, 6:18, 7:18,
8:18,9:18 and 10:18.
It will pick up students at
the ag campus bus stop on
Holdrege to go to city camp
us at approximately 8:15,
8:37, 9:00, 9:21, 9:50, 10:25, 11,
used as an animal meats
lab, husbandry engineering
machinery lab, for biochem
istry research and as a
home economics annex.

Fount Davisson, commem
orates the first principal of

near the well were donated
by the classes of 1919, and
1921. The first is square and
the other round.

Pi Phis, Pharmacists
Vie In Q-Bowl Tonight
The regularly scheduled session of Quiz Bowl competi
tion will start today at 7 p.m. in the New Party Room
of the Student Union with the Phi Beta Phi I team
. academically pitted against Pharmacy College.
At 7:25 the Theta Xi team will compete against the
Phi Gamma Delata team. At .7:50 the Beta Theta Pi II
pledges vs. Theta Chi and at 8:15 the Delta Tau Delta
No. 1 team will meet the Delta Sigma Phi team.
All team members should be at the New Party Room
of the Student Union 15 minutes before their scheduled
match. At least four members must be present or the
team will be disqualified. Team members will be given
name tags when they arrive at the Party Room.
Disqualifications have to be made if the teams are
late because of the tight schedule that the Quiz Bowl is
run on. The double-elimination style tournament must be
run on strict schedule to be finished by May 5.
The field will be narrowed down to five teams through
the double-elimination tournament. The last games will
be televised by KUON-TV.

The Residence Association
for Men (RAM) Council Man
day night unanimously passed
a motion recommending the
"waiver of, or change in, the
ruling by the Intramurals De
partment concerning their re
fusal to award the first place
trophy in the fraternity divi
sion of Indoor Track to the
winning team from Kappa Al
pha Psi fraternity."
Gene Young, president of
Kappa Alpha Psi, explained to
the Council the events sur
rounding his fraternity's pro
test. He said that, although
the fraternity was given per
mission to compete in the fra
ternity division, the trophy,
which they won, was not
awarded to them because of
an Intramural Department
rule that a group without a
house cannot receive a trophy.
Young added that Charles
R. Tulloss, resident advisor
of Selleck Quadrangle, where
most of the fraternity's mem
bers now live, has agreed to
let them display the trophy
in the Selleck award case un
til the fraternity moves into
its own house.
A letter was drafted Monday
night and delivered Tuesday
morning to Vice Chancellor lx.

The letter, signed by Gary
Pokorny, RAM president, and
Frank P a r t s c h, secretary,
asked that the rule be clari

men of Kappa Alpha Psi as
well as anyone who might en
counter this rule in the fu

championship was the first
campuswide honor given to
the Kappa Alpha Psis and,
since they are in the process
of recolonization, it would be
a tremendous psychological
boost to the men of the fraternity.
Union Contract Covers
Miami Hotel Damages;
Negotiations Undervky
The Student Union has been charged for damages
done to the Hotel Schine McAllister in Miami by Nebras
ka fans attending the Orange Bowl game. The Union
officials are still negotiating with the hotel concerning
the amount of damage. The Hotel originally sent a bill
for $480 but agreed to cut this amount in half since some
of the damage could have been done by other hotel
The Union has written to the hotel and agreed to pay
half of this second amount. No reply has yet been re
ceived, according to Robert Barnes, assistant director of
the Student Union.. ,
Carl Carlisle, program director of the Union, said that
most of the damage was done by water released from
fire extinguishers by the guests. Other damage was done
to the paint on the walls and a door stopper wis torn
off. Most of the damage was little things, said Carlisle.
The Union had signed a contract previous to the trip
which required that they be responsible for damage up
to $1,000, according to Barnes.
"The students behaved themselves very well general
ly," said Barnes. "There was no trouble New Year's Eve.
There were parties in the rooms the night after the game
but they were generally quiet."
The total expenses of the trip have not yet been com
piled so the Union does not know if they will be able to
cover the damage expenses without dipping into other
Union funds. These figures should be available soon, said

The question of the trophy's
future was somewhat simpli

which finished second in the
track tournament and would
receive the trophy if it were
not given to the winners.

that they would not accept the
award if offered to them.
