John Marburger, presi
dent of Maclean House, in
troduced the resolution and
asked that the rule change
be brought about with
process. "This proposal is
something we should solve
with an adult mind," he
The resolution was re
ferred to the RAM resident
management committee for
study and Marburger was
made a temporary member
of the committee. It will be
brought up for discussion
after a committee report
next Monday night, he said.
Richard Scott, resident di
rector of Selleck Quadran
ble, said that the idea could
be good if handled correct
ly and if everyone adherred
to the policy decided upon.
It would be a contributing
factor to the social growth
and adeptness of the resi
dents of Selleck, Scott said.
Dave Kittams, president
of RAM, was not too opti
mistic about the proposal,
but said this kind of think
ing is an excellent sign in
the dorms.
"It shows the men are
taking pride in their living
quarters and trying to ad
just them for the best ad
vantage," Kittams said.
"The need for this resolu
tion point up a few inade
quacies of the dorms now
on campus. There is a short
age of lounge space in all
the dorms," he said.
M. Edward Bryan, direc
tor of housing, said the res
olution would have to be
within the limits of the As
sociated Women Students
(AWS) and other campus
groups. If this policy is
worked out, Bryan said he
felt it would be a good idea.
Helen Snyder, associate
dean of Student Affairs,
said she did not have a
strong opinion on the pro
posal, but she said it would
be a "radical departure"
from the former policy.
"One's living quarters are
private and not the best
place for entertaining" Miss
Snyder said.
Janet; Benda. president of
AWS, also feels that a
man's room is not the best
place for entertaining. Mis
Benda said the proposal
would probably spread to
women's quarters as well
as men's and from there to
sorority and fraternity
This could present a fac
tor of inconvenience to oth
ers living in the unit, she
said. Miss Benda, however,
said she could see the good
points on both sides of the

Spirit Boosts Cornhuskers
As Chicken Wire Unfolds
By Mark Plattner
Junior Staff Writer
This is the 41st year that
stuffing, folding, stapling, cut
ting, and chicken wire have
taken the place of classes as
the major purpose of being at
the University.
Since the year 1923, when
the first meager Homecoming
displays were built, the fad

Cornhusker football fortunes
have gone up and down in this
time, but the same determina.
tion has always been a major
part of Homecoming.
In the year 1930 only $25
was allowed to be spent for a
display. The present li m i t,
set in 19G2, is $300 for com
bined displays, and $200 for
single efforts.

A Spanish literary maga
zine has called attention to
the University's Latin Amer

in iu Octgrsr is:v;.
An edi' 'il in "Cuadernos,"
an internationally circulated
magazine published at Paris,
France, cited the growing in
terest in Latin America
among students at the Univer
sity. The University's Latin

American studies. Students
also may take part in an ex

Colegio de Mexico at Mexico

chants, and 50 gallons of
crude oil.
1937 saw the corner stone
of the Student Union laid,
but no Homecoming Queen.
Festivities were heightened by
the Kosmet Klub fall show in
the morning.
A traditional Tug of War
was a major attraction in
1940. The freshmen stood
against the sophomores. If the
frosh won, they could discard
their beanies, if they lost,
they wore their beanies till
the first snow fall.
World War II held down
Homecoming in every way.
Decorations could not cost in
excess of $7. The program
was under the control of the
War Council, and second
place prize was $5 in war
stamps. 135 tickets were
available for the dance.
Dedications seem to be the
prevalent theme of Homecom
ing: Carillon Tower was dedi
cated in 1949, this caused
spirit to swell to such a de
gree that two pep rallies were

for Homecoming to the Polio
For drama, excitement, and
a word to the wise, 1961 was
the best year for Homecom
ing. This was the year of the
Sigma Nu fire, the lost card
section, and Les Elgart.
The Sigma Nu display
burned Friday afternoon 30
minutes before the judges
were to make their rounds.
The Sigma Nu's, with the help
of the other Greeks who had
finished their displays helped
the house to rebuild their dis
play. The Phi Delta Theta
display burned down later in
the evening.
The card section, in a mo
ment of exuberance, threw
the cards all over the stadium,
tore them up, or took them
home as souveners. The dam
age was estimated to be $800.
Les Elgart was featured at
the Homecoming Dance. After
the dance Elgart and his
band were to be found in jail.
They were charged with ille
gal possession of narcotics.
Back to the stuffing, fold
ing, and cutting, who knows
what will happen?

Parking Survey Shows
Availability Of Spaces
By Wallis Lundeen
Junior Staff Writer
A survey of parking lots on
campus made by the Student
Council Parking Committee
showed parking spaces are
available at all times through
out the day.
According to Bill Poppert,
chairman of the Parking Com
mittee, each lot was checked
every hour Tuesday and
Wednesday, and the number
of empty stalls were counted.
The first area included the
metered and free lots near
Selleck Quadrangle, and the
Student Union lot. These lots
were filled to near capacity
on both days until 2 p.m.
After this time about 25 stalls
were empty in the combined
"I do not recommend this
area for 'hunters' between
8:30 a.m. and 2 p.m.," Pop
pert said.
The second area was the
two T Street lots between 9th
and 10th, and U Street 1 o t,
and the Vine Street lot. This
area always had empty stalls
except between 10 a.m. and 12
noon on Wednesday.
"Those looking for a spot to
park should find it in the Vine
Street lot almost anytime dur
ing the day," Poppert said.
Between 36 and 87 stalls
were open during the two
days except during the times
The third area, the Avery
Avenue lot north of the field
house, had available spaces
ranging from 183 at 10 a.m.
Wednesday to 607 at 8 a.m.
The last area included the
Vine and North Side Avenue,
and the Elgin lot.
"These lots were filled to
near capacity between 9 a.m.
and 12 noon, but thereafter
had 65 or more empty spaces.
There were 157 at 1 p.m.
"I have heard complaints
from many students, usually
the big husky males of our
campus, "Poppert continued,
"about how far it is to walk
from some of these lots, such
as the one on Avery Avenue."
"I hate to think that the so
rority girls living in houses
on R Street between 16th
and 17th have better endur
ance, for they have to walk
farther going to classes in
Burnett Hall than those stu
dents parked in the Avery lot.
Concerning the necessity for
motorcycle owners having to
Pound fights Size Successfully
Pound Hall has been de
scribed as the "hotel dormi
tory" because of its huge
rather impersonal structure.
"How can the girls who live
in Pound ever feel a part of
things in such an impersonal
The question can be an
swered, in part, by under
standing just how Pound Hall
is organized.
Each of the 12 floors in
Pound is organized individual
ly as a house. Each floor has
officers elected to carry out
plans and activities for the
individual house.
A committee or council is
formed of the officers from
each floor, i.e. the presidents'
cabinet, treasurers' cabinet.
These cabinets seek to com
pile the ideas suggestions or
problems of each individual
floor through the floor's rep
resentative and make sugges-j
tions which will solve an in
dividual floor's problem as
well as unite the whole dorm
Each of the cabinets have
special projects aimed at uni
fying Pound Hall. The Annual
Directors' Tea is an exam
ple. The vice-presidential cab
inet, headed by Becky Stehl,
is writing a guide book of
standards for Pound Hall.
The social chairmen's cab
inet is planning an after
game tea for Saturday, Home
coming. Pam Chapman heads
the cabinet.
Laura Lake is chairman of
the presidents' cabinet and
president of Pound Hall.
The Scholarship Committee
headed by Pat Bergstrom,
functions to "encourage an
academic atmosphere
throughout the building," ac
cording to Miss Mary Frances
Holman, residence director.
The committee will try to
locate tutors this semester for
girls that need extra help.
This committee also is respon

This year the Pound Hall
girls are building a homecom

said the Parking Committee
studied the problem and de
cided not to change the fee.
Poppert listed as reasons
the fact that the owner may
park near the building where
he has classes, it is not ne
cessary to pay for meters,
and it is possible to park off
campus on 16th and R Streets
where no permits are re
quired. A plea from Police Chief
Joe Carroll has been made
that all sign stealing be
stopped as it may lead to
serious injury, Poppert said.
