ment of the May Queen and

Ivy Day.
The masking of the Mortar
Boards, the tackling of Inno
cents, and the Ivy Day singe
are also traditional events in
the Ivy Day Festivities. Ivy

May $.
The first May Queen was
selected in 1912 at a senior
women's mass meeting. Mor
tar Boards pulled the Queen
from the Temple Theater to
her throne in a poppy-covered
jinrikisha, w hich was
loaned by William Jennings
Bryan who had received it on
his trip around the world.
E v r y May Queen up to
1929 w as a Mortar Board. In
past years, however, Mortar
Boards have declined nom
inations for this honor.
The first Ivy Day, which
takes its name from the plant
which is placed in the ground
each year by the Mortar
Boards and Innocents, was
held in June, 1901.
Growing out of the annual
Senior Gass Day which was
started in 1839, Ivy Day is
reputed to be the oldest of -all
campus traditions, according
to a 1944 edition of the
This traditional University
event bas changed with and
adapted to history. Twenty
years ago there was only one
Innocent oh tbe campus, and,
according to the Mav S, 1944
edition of the DAILY NE
BRASKAX, "it was deemed
best to postpone choosing a
new group until after the
war." Ia 1944, as in the pre
ceding year, all festivities
were squeered talo a tel
escoped program, which, ow
ing to the war, eliminated the
inter-fraternity sing aid the
tackling of Innocents.
"In keeping with the war
time tone of campus affairs,
the May Queen ceremony
was shorter than usual and
the queens and their attend
ants were in informal dress."
Festivities in 1943 were cut
to a half-day affair to ac
commodate activated ROTC
members and aircrew men.
A group of aircrew men par
ticipated in the afternoon
singing to make up for tbe
lack of male voices.
All of the pre-war tradi
tions of Ivy Day were includ
ed in the University's 4Cth an
nual celebration in 1947.

Theme: Builders Today,
Heritage Of Tomorrow
Senior Staff Writer
Eleven nationally prominent University graduates
will return to the campus April 26-28 to participate in the
1964 Masters Program, according to John Lydick, chair
man of the Student Council Masters Committee.
The theme for the program, under the joint sponsor
ship of Student Council and the Administration of the Uni
versity, is "Masters 1964, Builders of Today, Heritage of
During their visit at the University, the masters will
attend classes, visit living nnits, tour the University, and
talk to students on any subject the students wish to
The Masters Program was started last year at the
suggestion of Chancellor Clifford M. Hardin, who partici
pated in a similar program at Purdue University. Lydick
said that other Big Eight schools are following the Uni
versity's lead in developing the idea of inviting prominent
alumni to revisit their schools.
The first Masters Program brought five masters to
the campus, and it was rated highly successful by the
participants. This year's program is expanded to include
eleven masters and their wives, said Lydick, and for the
first time, a woman is included among the masters.
The wives win address women's living units while
their husbands are meeting male students. "While many
of the women on campus will never be masters, some of
them will be masters' wives, so we think that including
the wives in the program win make it more successful,'
said Lydick.
"I'd like to emphasize that this program is designed
for the benefit of tbe students," he added. "These men
will talk to stuaents about anything they want to know:
ideas, leals. philosophy, successes and failures in
short, they will talk about life and how to make a go of it.
Lydick also noted that this year's program includes
the first Nebraska master, Regent Val Peterson, former
governor and former ambassador to Denmark.
The other masters are: Dr. Ruth Leverton, adminis
trator for tbe U-S- Department of Agriculture and U. N
lecturer in borne economics to Turkey and Egypt:
Dr. Herbert Bronell Jr., former attorney general and
president of the New York Bar Association;
Merle Jones, president of the Columbia Broadcasting
Harry Letton, senior vice president and general eons
sel for the Southern California Gas Company;
Allen Sutherland, senior vice president of the Security
First National Bank of San Diego;
Arthur Bryan, president of Union Carbide Consumer
Products, New York City;
J. Kenneth Cozier, president of tbe Cozier Container
Company, Cleveland;
