Colorado means many
things to University stu
dentsmountains, Tulagi's,
skiing and in the fall, foot
ball. Unofficial migrations to
Colorado are usually ob
served more religiously by
the University campus than
the most official events.
Saturday's football game
at Colorado Springs with
the Air Force Academy is
no exception according to
many sources, but the al
umni and Nebraska resi
dents will proportionally
far out-number the students
as compared with other
years at Colorado games.
The University ticket of
fice reported that they had
for the game, approximate
ly twice as many as usual.
The ticket office de
scribed the turnout as
"real good," but said they
had no record of how many
of these were students.
Bus, train and airport
authorities reported almost
capacity sales, but said
most of these seemed to be
adults and not students.
The general ticket agent
at the Burlington Train De
pot said there were two
special trains, but that
both of them would be oc
cupied mostly by adults.
There are students going.
This everyone knows rrd no
doubt many cars with
groups of five or six youths
will leave Friday or early
Saturday, but still the turn
out does not appear to be
as big as usual.
When asked why they
weren't going to the game,
many students explained
that aside from the usual
lack of money, they juldn't
get tickets.
The University ticket of
fice late Thursday Jtes'm
denied that this was true.
They said that at least Wi
tickets still hadn't been sold
for the game.
Other students said tiiey
were saving their money for
the Missouri game in Co
lumbia, Oct. 30.
One group of students who
originally had planned to
support Nebraska :rtrigly
at the game was a fra er
nity pledge class that had
rented a bus, bought tick
ets (some 20 too many) and
planned antics to pull on
the actives before 'ii.
But their pledge cliair
man informed them that it
was too early in the ear
for a "sneak" and they
canceled their plans.
A group of five sophomore
girls, Mary Ulbrick, Karen
Jones, Janet Pittenger,
Becky Brackle, Cindy Sitor
lus and Ann Windle, will be
at the game for sure.
They are leaving early
Saturday morning and will
be staying at the Air Force
Academy itself with a cap
tain and his family who are
friends of one of the girls.
Front Page Editorial
Petition Supported
A petition is being circulated on campus today re
questing that the Homecoming Queen finalists be elected
through primary ballot rather than through an interview
ing board.
The petition was drawn up Thursday night by a group
of students who feel the Homecoming finalists should be
elected by the entire student body rather than an inter
viewing board chosen by Tassels.
One of the spokesmen for the group said that the
queen, if representing the entire University, should be
chosen by a vote of all the students on a primary as
well as on a final ballot.
The petition is being circulated in an effort to obtain
around 750 signatures (five per cent of the student en
rollment) which is needed, according to the ASUN con
stitution, to bring the matter before a special session of the
Student Senate.
The petition must be received 24 hours before the spe
cial meeting can be held.Thus the petitioners are seek
ing signatures for their proposal by late this afternoon
so that a Senate meeting could be called Saturday after
noon. The Senators could discuss the petition and come to
a decision before the interviews for Homecoming Queen
which are set for Sunday afternoon.
The Daily Nebraskan is aware of the disrespect and
unenthusiasm shown the Homecoming Queen in past years.
The reason for the non-support of the queen has been
caused by the block voting tactics that occur year after
The Daily Nebraskan believes that with the large
number of dormitory and house candidates put before
an entire student vote, block voting would not occur.
The Homecoming Queen at the University of Nebras
ka should be respected and supported by all the students.
The petition-proposed primary election would insure that
the queen be the students' choice by popular vote.
The Daily N':braskan supports the petition and urges
you to sign it.

ernor of the state noted "Elec

stated he did not expect to
begin an active campaign un
til after be had filed. He ex
plained that the intervening
time would be used to estab
lish an organization.
Peterson ended his brief
statement saying, "In my
judgement, the Republican
Party can win, and I think it
is important to the welfare
of Nebraska that it does win."
Following his statement Pe
terson spoke at length to the
assembled students. He be
gan, "Tonight l would iikc w
speak for awhile with you
about one of the most impor
tant problems in the world,
The one time ambassador
to Denmark listed eight "di
viding forces" in the world
which he said were barriers
to international understand
ing and world peace.
He spoke of poverty, "Sheer
grinding poverty of the type
you have to see to believe."
Peterson talked of ignorance,
greed, race, language, relig
ion, narrow nationalism and
different political and eco
nomic ideologies as Jidding
forces in the world.
He declared that poverty as
a system was nothing to be
condoned and stated, "as Re
publicans we don't want to be
smeared by being against a
war on poverty.
Discussing Red China, Pe-j
terson noted that the Chinese
people are being taught to
hate Americans and meri
cans are being taught to hate
the Chinese. He said thr only
outcome of this can b- a war
with Red China.
Peterson asked, "What
crimes have been committed
in the name of religion?" and
praised Vatican II for its ef
forts toward religious peace.
He also praised the late
Pope John XXIII calling him
a "great leader of the mass
es." Turning to Russian Com
munism, Peters&B told the
group of approximately 100,
"Communism as an economic
system has never worked
anytime, anywhere In the
world." He declared, "Russia
isn't ahead of us in anything
in the world as far as I know
Throughout his talk Peter
son repeatedly warned that
I these eight forces needed to
be overcome or there would
be a world war. He said, "U
we don't get these dividing
forces under control they
will destroy us."
The speaker counseled,
"We must learn to u n d e r
stand other people. We've ne
ver been too good at it here
in America. If we want to be
accepted by others, we must
first accept them."
Peterson charged, "Ladief
and gentlemen, we are doing
a rotten job of mastering
men, of getting into the minds
of men. We still govern our
selves on the basis of preju
dice. We need to do a better
job in the political world."
When Peterson ended his re
marks, John Reiser, president
of the Young Republicans
spoke briefly calling Peterson,
"a friend of this University
and of this club."
Frank Marsh, Nebraska
Secretary of State, and Fred

Creator Of Automated Art
To Give Sheldon Lecture
Father Leland Lubbers of
the Creighton University in
Omaha will present a lecture
on "Overflow Energy Art"
at 8 p.m. Tuesday in the Uni
versity Sheldon Art Gallery.
Six automated construction's
prqmred by Father Lubbers
are on exhibition at the Shel
don Gallery, according to
Norman Geske, director. The
machines are turned on at
the half hour throughout each
day. The exhibition continues
through Oct. 10.
Father Lubbers has studied
art both in the U.S. and
France. A native of Stough
ton, Wis., he has utilized his
skill in welding, acquired
while working im a war plant,
to mold fig'ire-s from dis
carded articles in junk yards.

to include the role the Union is
to play at the University and
studies of University policy.
"Every stone must be
turned," Bennett said, t
make this study as com
prehensive as possible. "The
problem is to prevent ut from
being shortsighted."
This study, he said, would
try to determine the types of
sen ices needrd, such as a
post office or tookstore, and
the appearance and attitude
the Union displays to the campus.
WTiile the study Is being

Remodeling was considered
earlier in the year, but due to
possible expansion, Bennett
said that the idea baa beea
We are stabalizing daily
operations for the time and
yet we are still trying to find
additional time to do studying
into the expansion, he 6aid.
One possibility Bennett men
tioned was expansion upward.
"The present column struc
ture is designed to carry two
more stories over the newest
addition to the Union," Ben
nett explained.
He also pointed out that con
struction of an addition could
be carried as far as the patio
or north of it to create addi
tional room.
"Or we could use a combi
nation of the two," be said.
"We are also faced with the
fact that there are needs on
the East campus due to tbeir
growing enrollment, Bennett
pointed out. -"This possibility
can i pe ouisiae uux uuuuue.
Other possibilities even in
clude the idea of several loca
tions of the Union on campus.
This could be considered
the light of the problems in
curred by Purdue, wmcn nas
a building three blocks long.
"Some people feel that the
undergraduates can't feel an
attachment to a monolith of
this size," Bennett stated.
Reiterating that some of the
ideas which he mentioned are
strictly in the idea stage, Ben
nett said that the survey
would be open to the ideas of
any and all concerned per
sons. Expansion would first in
clude the comprehensive sur
vey and then the placing of
needs and desires on a prior
ity list, Bennett said. T-is
would then have to he relate
ed to cost. Finally, cost would
have to be related to how
much expansion could be fi
nanced, he said.
He noted further that the
expansion plans might not
even be realized in the first
phase of construction and that
the expansion program could
be extended into several phas
es over a period oi years.
