The skateboard the latest era in the evolution of the
fraternity sidewalk game, is demonstrated here by Dale
Huff, Delta Tau Delta, in front of the Delt house. The
skateboard, which is the child of a surfboard and a roller
skate, can be seen nightly, smashing through the surf and
pedestrians along fraternity row. The victims of this
innovation have found its wounds more painful than those
of its predecessors, the frisbe and the hula hoop.
3-School frosh Enrollment Soars;
Hall Credits J-State, Hearst Wins
A successful All-State vro
gram and victories in nation
al competitions have resulted
in an increased freshman
class in the School of Journ
alism, according to Dr. Wil
liam Hall, director of the
One-hundred twenty-e i g h t
freshman are enrolled in J
School this year, compared
With 55 last fall.
Part of the Increase is due
to the larger University fresh
man class, but the "Increase
is more than proportionate,"
Hall said.
"We have attracted more
than the usual number of stu
dents who attended the journ.
alism course at All-State,"
Hall said. High school stu
dents attend All-State sum
mer sessions at the Univer
sity. "The reputation of the
school has also been enhanced
by its victories in William
Randolph Hearst competi
tions," he continued.
An increase in staff has
been the most important re
sult of the freshman class ex
pansion. Frank O'Neill, an assistant
professor of photography and
cinematography, will teach
full time. He is replacing

signed last spring.

YR's Told
The basic differences be
tween the political philosoph
ies of the Republican Party
and the political practices of
the Democratic Party were
outlined at the Young Repub
licans (YR's) meeting held
last night.
In a speech to over 90 YR
members, Nebraska State
Republican Chairman Walt
Wittoff pointed out sharp dif
ferences between the Republi
can thought and the Demo
cratic action.
"Chief among the basic dif
ferences between the parties
is their approach to individual
liberty," Wittoff said. "The
Democrats think only of class
es, masses, and blocks," he
went on. "The Republicans
think of the individual and be
lieve the federal government
should do only those things
which the individual can't do.'
Wittoff also cited the Repub'
lican's stands against such
Democratic practices of "a
bigger federal government
. . . disrespect for the Consti
tution . . . and an unbalanced
"Democrats haven't
learned that strong foreign
policy is something the enemy
understands, Wittoff said in
regard to the Democrat's for
eign policy.
Wittoff also spoke on He
publican stands concerning
the farm problem, labor and
management problems, civil
rights and Integrity within the
federal government.
Wittoff closed his speech by
encouraging the YR members
to work hard for a Republican
victory in November. "We
have a tough fight," he
warned. "Nebraska is not in
the bag."
In their business meeting,
YR president Bill Harding al
so emphasized action by the
group. "Organizations are fine
to join, but they re much bet
ter if vou do something in
them," Harding stressed.
Reports on the functions of
the different YR committees
were given by each commit
tee chairman. This was done
in an effort to encourage
members of the group to sign
up to work on the commit
The members were also told
that campaign work by the
group will . begin this Satur
day. Plans were also given for
a YR campaign parade to be
held on October 22.

In a poll conducted this
week by the Daily Nebraskan,
an even 50 per cent of 20 sor
ority pledges interviewed said
that they would favor having
deferred rush for pledging.
Pledges from each sorority
were interviewed, with 15 of
trie pledges suggesting at
least minor changes in t h e
present procedure. These sug
gestions generally advocated
having the deferred rush or at
least lengthening rush week to
include more rush parties at
each house.
The chief reason for these
suggestions was that! the girls
believed their added time
would make it easier for them
to arrive at their final deci
sion. Also suggested was to al
low the sororities to have
summer rush.
All of those interviewed de
scribed rush week as being a
wonderful and enjoyable ex
perience. They agreed it was
"hectic" for the first couple of
days, but all but one said they
would gladly go through il
Five of the girls cited "cur
iosity" as part of their rea
son for going through rush
week. The others all went
through for the sole purpose
of pledging.
The nearly unanimous rea
son for pledging a house was
"for friendship."
"I pledged because I want
ed to feel like one o a group,
and not like one of a herd as
might be the case in a dorm,"
said Betty Swoboda, an Al
pha Delta Pi pledge.
"1 pledged because I felt I
have common interests with
the girls in this house. Here I
feel at home," she said

they expected to gala through

bcott graduated from Ari
zona State University with an
M.A. in counseling and is be
ginning his first year as Resi
dent Director at the Univer
sity. He is enjoying his new
job because "it is never the
same thing day after day or
night after night." There is
always a new problem and a
new indivisual to work with.
Scott noted that the duties
of the job are hard to define.
They include everything from
being mother and father to
advising the Residence Asso
ciation for Men (RAM) in its
activities plans.
The disciplinary, personal
and social problems of the
dorm are also the concern of
the Resident Advisor. "The
student is here to get an ed
ucation, and it is the counsel
ors job to help him accept the
responsibility for t h i s task,"
Scott said.
They have been no disciplin
ary problems so far this
year, but Scott is ready for
them if and when they arise.
"Discipline is not punitive,
but a part of the growth pro
cess," and it is the job of peo
ple working with students to
put them on the right road
to this growth.
Scott sums up his duties
and those of his office by say
ing, "Anything that effects the
student while he is at the Uni
versity is either directly or
indirectly related to this of
