have decided not to sponsor

In a statement to the Daily

that results of a roll call vote
indicated that the support was
not justified.
"Although almost all wom

they desired to build (dis

"15 of the 27 men's living

to build nor to consider an
other plan."

It was the feeling of Tassels i
and Corn Cobs, according to
the statement, that "at least
a majority of both men's and
women s living units would be
necessary to insure adequate
interest for continuation of
the contest."
The statement stressed that
the decision not to sponsor the
displays does not rule out in
dividual action by the houses.
"Rather it simply removed
the highly competitive atmos

statement said. The statement
urged that each house con

alumni. J
Suggested possibilities were
small banners, non-competitive
displays, alumni lunch

A special Student Senate

Following the bill s changes,
of having the senators from
the different colleges select

Sen. Skip Sorief pointed out
that making students vote
for three instead of one would
not stop block voting and
would only complicate things.

Sunday, at Camp Kitaki on
the Platte River the camp
was "designed to give an op

Dr. Alan Pickering, director
of the United Christian

Nancy Howland, who was on
the steering committee for
the camp. "What the camp
needed was storm windows
on the dining hall."
During a conference in the
camp chapel, a bull snake
entered the building.
"When I picked him up to
here," said Cindy Graske, ex
tending her arm straight out,
"he still touched the ground."
Fourteen boys and twelve
girls attended the camp.
The play "Impromptu" by
Mozelle was given Friday
night, just an hour after the
campers arrived with their
sleeping bags.
A campfire dance, skits,
hikes and indivilual discus
sion and evaluation periods
rounded out the weekend activities.

Call Load
Busy signals are often a
source of aggravation to col
lege students, but what would
happen if all the Mnes con
necting phones on campus
were busy at the same time?
This problem has arisen re
peatedly on the University
campus and sends switch
board operators as well as
students into a frenzy.
"We just keep dialing,"
one operator said. 'It happens
whenever there is a heavy
overload of calls. We can
hear all the calls eoming in,
and people can talk over the
busy signals."
Talking over the busy sig
nals has made for some in
teresting situations. One co
ed told of calling Selleck and !
"ending up talking to three :
boys at Abel." j
Other interesting situations
included the boy who found
himself talking to a house

Cool jazz on a mild fall day on the west lawn of Sheldon
Art Gallery may not have solved many problems for the
more than 4.000 people who were there, but it may have
made some of them more observant.
The Dave Brubeck Quartet created an atmosphere Fri

The audience will remember the people drifting to the

They'll remember the colors masses of colors which
the jazz intensified. Golds, reds, browns, blues, and greens
splashed vividly to form a background for the music.
Under the musical influence the Nebraska sky never
seemed so blue, nor the trees so green, nor Sheldon so
People moved their feet in time with the music. And
the feet themselves were reflective of the diversity of the
crowd who were shoeless, or clad in tennis shoes, loafers,
boots, wing tips, flats or sandals.
And they listened.
Their eyes were not turned to the same thing. Some
watched the quartet, others the ground or sky, still more
scanned the crowd for familiar faces, and others simply
gazed off into the world of Brubeck and his music.
And they listened.
Toward the end of the performance, more comments
could be heard. Things like "Take Five" sounds like the
record only better" and "That part sounds like the night
mare I had last night."
Selections from "Dave Digs Disney" were presented.
The general opinion seemed to be "Nebraska Digs
