Greek Week To Feature
Car Wash
"Cars and cars and cars
and more cars!"
This is the way Gary Lar
sen, IFC Affairs chairman,
hopefully described the gigan
tic Greek Week car wash
which will be Saturday from
9 a.m. to 3 p.m
The car wash will be a new
feature of Greek Week this
year which starts Friday
and ends Tuesday.
The car wash, which will
Include over 1000 fraternity
and sorority members wash
ing cars, will finance a huge
billboard to be located some
where on the outskirts of Luv
coin which will advertise the
Cars will be washed at two
campus locations the Nebras
ka Hall parking lot, 901 No.
17th, and Selleck Quadrangle
parking lot, 600 No. 15th.
"Our goal," Larsen said,
"is to wash 500 cars, and if
only students, Lincoln resi
dents and the Greeks them
selves will support us, the car
wash should be a big success
for the University,
"Our only worry," Larsen
added, "is the weather, but
all we can do is hope for the
' best and remember that
people have dirty cars even
when it snows."
The University is contribut
ing tne water for the car
wash and different fraternity
and sorority members wil
work together on shifts to
wash the cars.
Larsen pointed out that in
the past Greeks solicited mo
ney for charitable purposes
during Greek Week, but that
this year they want to e.irn
the money themselves.
Besides tne mammotn car
wash, Greek Week will also
include a marathon race,
Greek games, a ball, ban
quets and seminars.
A 26-mile Greek marathon
race officially starts the
series of events on Friday at
2 p.m.
The race starts at Crete
where the mayor will light the
torch and the Crete City
Council will officially start
the first runner on his way,
F. C. Green, IFC secretary
will run the first mile carry
ing the torch and a different
fraternity member wearing a
Greek toga will run every suc
ceeding mile.
The final runner, from Kap
pa Sigma Fraternity, will ar
rive carrying the torch to the
NU football stadium at about
4:30 p.m.
Runners will be timed as
they run their mile and an
award will be given to the
one with the fastest time.
"The We?k starts w i t h a
marathon race," Larsen ex
plaiaed, "because this is the
way the Greeks used to start
their games."
Friday afternoon will al
so feature the Greek games
which include fraternity and
sorority members taking part
in tug of wars, chariot races
and pyramid races.
Ike games will begin at the

A major musical work of
Frank Tirro, former Omahan
and a 1960 graduate of the
University, will be given a
premiere performance at the
annual Sinfonia Concert at 8
p.m. Tuesday in the Nebras
ka Union Ballroom.
The work, to be performed
by the Madrigal singers and
an instrumental group of fac

ran associate professor of
music at the University.
Another highlight of the
program will be the perform
ance of the Bach Swingers, a
student group under the direc

ior voicemajor from Omaha.
The new work, entitled Te
Deum," is the second major
sacred jazz work written by
Tirro, now an instructor of
music at the University of
Chicago. While still a stu
dent here he was commis
sioned by a local church foun
dation to write a jazz mass.
It wa3 later pubMied by a
major music firm and played
in a number of cities in the
United States.
Robert Beadell, associate
professor of music at the Uni
versity and the young man's
former adviser, said "Tirro is
fast becoming one of the most
exciting new composers of
sacred jazz music in the country."
Skirting Other Campuses
Grades Before Girls
At Kentucky College
Until a few years ago the
boys at Alice Lloyd College
in Kentucky weren't allowed
to speak to the girls.
The reason?
This was the way the col
lege emphasized that educa
tion must come before mar
riage. Today the girls and boys do
talk, but the college is still
vitally interested in education.
The college was founded in
1923 by a pioneer New Eng
land school marm, Alice
Lloyd. The purpose of the col
lege is to provide educated
leaders for poverty-plagued
The college charges no tuition
of its 250 students for their,
two years of education. But
the students must promise to
return, after they finish their
education, to the poverty
stricken backwoods and moun
tains from which they came.
Admission to the college is
restricted to students from
eastern Kentucky. The college
receives support through do
nations from around the na
tion and from benefactors
who donate sums annually.
Work Begins
On Addition
To Church
Ground was broken Satur
day for St. Mark's-on-the-
Campus Episcopal Church ad
dition, at 1309 R.
The addition will provide a
sanctuary seating 200 and will
mark the completion of the
$210,000 church. The new addi
tion Is expected to be ready
for use by the beginning of
the fail semester.
Father George Peek said
there were about 500 Episco
pal students and faculty mem
bers on campus. He said the
church had an imperative
need for more room. Chapel
services are being held in the
student lounge at the present
time but will move into the
chapel addition as soon as it
is complc-ted.
Father Peek went on to say
that the church was still in
need of a new organ but that
his immediate concern was to
put the new chapel in opera
tion. Upon recommendation, a
special organ room for the
chapel was eliminated. Father
Peek said that the sensitivity
of an organ to temperate
changes made placement of
the organ in the main chapel
more practical. He said that
at the present time the church
is using an electronic organ,
but that he hopes a new or
gan will be purchased in the
near future.
The church is being built
under contract to the George
Cook Construction Company.
90 per cent of Alice
graduates do return
Something new has
added: a "teach-in."
The University of Michigan
held a "teach-in." sponsored
by 200 faculty members. The
"Teach-in" consisted of a 12
hour series of rallies, speech
es and seminarsor the pur
pose of protesting United
States policy in Viet Nam.
A Viet Cong-made movie
about the war was shown, and
a student announced that he
could not "in good conscience
continue to wear" the Army
ROTC uniform.
Another student announced
that he would launch a 48-hour
hunger strike to protest Amer
ican "suppression of the Viet
namese struggle for independ
ence and self-determination."

MacCabe said he has been
impressed with the amount of
enthusiasm and interest which
united Mates citizens, "es
pecially youth," have shown
in the U.N.
"They have a right to be
proud of the U.S. role in the
world body," he said, "be
cause the U.S. has lived up to
its obligations under the char

the United Nations cannot suc

various economic and social
agencies "depend for their
success on the parent organ
