Chosen to preside over the ds's festivities will be the r leen and her maid of honor, elected through an all-campus vote of junior and senior women. Ten finalists will be selected In a primary election on March 4. The queen and her maid of honor will be elected from these ten in the final election March 1L Announce ment of the May Queen and her court will be made on 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 Day this year win be held 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 DAILY NEBRASKA. 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 By FRANK PARTSCH 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 Tomorrow." 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 discuss. 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 Company; 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; Edw ard Stanley, director of tta National Broadcasting Company.
