Pep Queen Of '40
Still Follows Team
By Julie Morris
Junior Staff Writer
Eight children and 25 years
ago, Mrs. John Morrow
reigned over the 1940 Home
coming ceremonies as Ne
braska Pep Queen. During
Homecoming Week 1965 Mrs.
Morrow will again appear,
this time as an honored alum
na. She will be guest at various
alumni functions and will be
presented on the field at half
time of the Nebraska-Colorado
Mrs. Morrow, the former
Betty O'Shea, was the second
coed to be elected Pep Queen,
the equivalent of today's
Homecoming Queen.

Tassels said, "It wasn't as
much of an honor then as it
is now because it was not an
all-University election." The

Marriage came on the heels
of graduation for Mrs. Mor
row. She received a B. A. in
elementary education at the
same ceremony at which her
husband, John, was presented
a law degree from Nebraska.
Mrs. Morrow, a slender bub
bly woman, thinks "the spirit
at Nebraska has been wonder
ful. I think there has always
been a great loyalty to the
football team."
Speaking of spirit and loy
alty, Mrs. Morrow said, 'T
think I've gone to every foot
ball game at Nebraska since
fourth grade." She said she
had started going on knothole
tickets and now she and her
husband attend the games
with a group of other fans.

Band Day Draws 3,600 Musicians

By Bruce Giles
Junior Staff Writer
Red legs and noses may
not be evident for Saturday's

warm, sunny weather for
Band Day festivities.
3,600 musicians from bands
across the Cornhusker state

according to Don Lentz, direc
tor of University bands.
Each band will be met by
two men and a woman from

That is how Dick Sherwin
explained the purposes of Stu

group on the University cam

student government more
meaningful and effective,"
Sherwin said, "bjjir working on

whose duties, as outlined in
their constitution, are "to
carry out the policies and
programs decided upon by
the committee as a whole and
other such actions ... as it
deems necessary and proper
to carry out the purposes and
goals of SAGE," is composed
of five members.
Temporary committeemen
include Doug Mitchell, Dick
Sherwin, Alan Larson, Lynn
Overholt and John Schreck
tnger. They advocate several
campus reforms and projects
including a campus FM ra
dio station and a legislative
committee composed of inter
ested students.
An FM radio station, they
maintain, could be used to
publicize student events,
broadcast University pro

Musical numbers for the

Student Petitions Ask
New Conference Rooms
Petitions calling "for con
ference rooms in our depart
ments where we can extend
discussions after class" will
be presented to the Student
Senate Wednesday.
The petitions, which
started circulating the cam
pus earlier this week, ex
plain that students in these
"conference rooms could en
gage in faculty-student di
alogue, and deepen rela
tionships among our peers."
No "Talk" Rooms
Steve Abbott, a University
student who first started
the petitions, explained that
there were no rooms on

students could just go and

Lentz said that there were
over 350 bands wishing to
participate in Band Day fes

Lentz noted that with the in

tion may turn in approved
worksheets between Nov.
29 and Dec. 17, but that
class cards would be pulled
for them after cards had
been pulled for all e a r 1 y
"We are trying to help
students help themselves,"
Chatfield said. "The one
problem is that students will
be overly optimistic that the
new system will insure them
space. It can't erase the
backlog but will tell us what
the back-log is.
"I'm sure there are bugs
here that will show up lat
er," he continued, "but
things can't be much worse
than they were this sum
mer and fall. The ideal sit
uation would be scheduling
for a full year in advance
and that would be the ulti
mate solution to registra
tion headaches."
Freshman Classes Fill
The procedure evolved
frbm a concern over too
few sections and a backlog
of upper-classmen trying to
fulfill freshmen require
ments that were full when
they were freshman.
Chatfield explained that
the new system would re
quire a double-handling of
worksheets, but that if the
supply and the demand for
classes could be balanced,
"there would be less paper
shuffling in the long run."
The new procedure will
enable cards to be pulled
more quickly, Chatfield
Out By Oct. 15
A bulletin has been sent to
all the state draft boards in
dicating that enrollment veri
fication of University students
will be sent by October 15.
Col. Francis Drath, deputy
state director of the selective
service office said.
The bulletin was sent when
information on the draft forms
sent to the selective service
by the University proved to
be inadequate, according to
Col. Drath.
The number of hours for
which the student is enrolled
was not included on the
forms. "The University offi
cials have promised to have
the forms ready by October
15," he said.
Several University students
have received induction no
tices because the draft forms
have not been received by the
local draft boards.
Mrs. Erma Lasse, assistant
registrar, said that the forms
will be sent out by as soon
as possible, within the next
Even those students who
have received a notice will not
be inducted if they are "sat
isfactorily pursuing a full
time course at the Univer
sity," Drath said.
He urged anyone who has
received an induction notice
to check with his local draft
board. "The responsibility
rests on t h e man," Drath
said. Students who have fur
ther problems should contact
his office, he said.
