Junior Sttfff Writer The Residence Association for Men (RAM) Monday heaUftOHIMKftlution seeking a rule change to allow week- HI Allow Womeini Bun Mooms 'suitable restrictions and processes". ' Marburger said the move Avould instill pride in t h e dorm, have fine recreational aspects and play a signifi- WTrr"i)l.ifirwfMH&,.iH.-t.h p cant part in the maturation male rooms ot beneck Quadrangle. 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 said. 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 houses. 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 proposal.

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 has progressed to the extrav agant wonders of the present season. 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. In 1915 the Homceoming 'Mixer' was held in Grant Memorial. There were fire works, a band concert, and a dance. In 1923, the Memorial Sta dium was dedicated as a part of the Homecoming cere monies. In 1930 a torch light parade was held. A bonfire was started with the materials Knitting Class Starts Today At Ag Campus Girls interested in learning to knit may join k-itting cla:.:: at Ag Union. A series of six lesons be gins today at 1 p.m. in the Ag Union lounge. There is no fee. Spanish 'Cuadernos' Recognizes University A Spanish literary maga zine has called attention to the University's Latin Amer ican Area Studies program 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 Ar a Studies pro gram was organized last spring. The program j it posible for students to ob tain a strong minor in Latin American studies. Students also may take part in an ex change program with El Colegio de Mexico at Mexico City. provided by L i n c o 1 n mer 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 held. 1952 was a year of sacrifice. The fraternities and sorori ties donated the money alloted for Homecoming to the Polio Campaign. 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?

"Nebraska agriculture meets industry," is the first program to be aired, 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 lots. "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 noted. 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. Tuesday. 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. Wednesday." "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 atmosphere?" 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 itory. 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 sible for maintaining and in creasing the Pound Hall li brary started last year. A set of Americana Ency clopedia was donated by Love Library to begin an experi ment with a library main tained by an individual hous ing unit. Webster's Third New Inter national Dictionary, etiquette books, literary guides and oth er books were added to the library. The committee hopes to make available several daily newspapers as well as liter ary, sports and news maga zines. The New York Times, Sunday edition has already arrived. The library is maintained in the lounge of Pound Hall. Bookcases were built to fit in with the decor of the lounge. The Scholarship Committee also sponsors a "Recognition Service" in the spring to rec ognize those girls who main tained high scholarship. This year the Pound Hall girls are building a homecom ing display in cooperation with other independent wom en on campus, "encouraged by a little help from a couple of engineers," said Miss Hol man. "You can see the coopera tion and pride, the unity we have when you see the signs the girls have put up on the floors noting that Pound Hall's Homecoming Queen candidate is . 'our queen,' " Miss Holman said. buy a $5 permit, Poppert 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.
