The Innocents Society has withdrawn
its sponsorship of the Homecoming dis
play award in hopes that "all affected
groups will reconsider their homecoming
The Innocents explained their precedent-setting
action in a statement to the
Daily Nebraskan. The statement expressed
the view that "the Homecoming display
is probably not the best means at stu
dent disposal for greeting returning alumni.
"In most instances," the statement
continued, "the display has grown into an
annual event requiring vast amounts of
time and money in order to compete ef
fectively. We believe that, while the Home
coming display has diminished in value to
the Homecoming spirit, it has simultane
ously expanded in its imposition upon the
students who prepare it.
"This is incompatible with our tradi
tional emphasis upon scholarship," the In
nocents' statement said.
In their decision to withdraw sponsor
ship of the Homecoming display award,
the Society said they hope affected groups
will reconsider their Homecoming pro
grams with special "attention to activities
that will be in keeping with the true
meaning of Homecoming spirit and to the
true meaning of being a student."
The Society plans, however, "to retain
interest in this area," and the statement
said the Innocents are open to suggestions

Although the Homecoming game will
be played Oct. 23, the homecoming dance
is scheduled for Oct. 15 at Pershing Au
ditorium. The dance, featuring three combos, js
for students. Extensive decorations, cost
ing up to $1,000, are planned for the
dance with a "Salute to the University
of Nebraska Sports" theme.
Featured at the Homecoming dance
will be the crowning of the Homecoming
queen. She will reign during the week of
Oct. 15-23, making several public appear
ances during this time.
Elections for Homecoming queen will
be held Oct. 12 and 13. Voting booths
will be open at the libraries and unions
of both campuses.
The rating system of interviewees for
Homecoming queen candidate has been
cianged. So that she represent "a typical
NU coed," more consideration will be giv
en to "poise, personality and appearance,
rather than scholarship and activities,"
according to Miss Crosier.
As in the past, it is still mandatory
that a candidate have a 5.5 cumulative
average, be in the junior class and partici
pate in some activities.
Other activities planned for Home
coming include: ,
Friday, Oct. 8: Rally at Carillon Tow
er. Finalists for Homecoming queen will
be announced at this time.
Friday, Oct. 22: Rally at the Stadium.
Saturday, Oct. 23: Noon alumni lunch
