Narrates show ViVwn Vonce Atorrafes Cmrfy Fashion Show By Julie Morris Junior Staff Writer Vivian Vance, perhaps more widely known as Ethel Mertz of the "I Love Lucy" televi sion series, has been criss crossing Lincoln and the campus this week. Miss Vance came to Lincoln to narrate a fashion show sponsored by the Lincoln Gen eral Hospital Auxiliary on Tuesday and to visit her sis ter, Lou Hall and her niece Sharon Hall, an Alpha Chi Omega pledge. Her schedule has also in cluded a question-answer ses sion with University speech and drama students and an interview for the KUON-TV program "Way Off Broad way." She said this is the first time in 14 years that she has not played opposite Lu cille Ball in a comedy series. She quit her role as Viv Bag ley in "The Lucy Shcr" be cause, "I wanted to be home with my husband." "Home" for Miss Vance, a Kansas native, is Stanford, Conn. She discussed her associa tion with Miss Ball relating that their first series began in the pioneer days of televi sion when studios were only makeshift affairs. In a forceful, throaty voice Miss Vance laughingly re called, "Fourteen years ago when we started out, Lucy brought a can of Bon Ami to the studio, and we scrubbed the ladies room." Now a free lance television performer, Miss Vance said that playing the same role of Ethel Mertz year after year gave her "a terrible feeling of loss of identity. She gave up an $8,000 a week salary when she quit her three-year-old role on "The Lucy Show,' but she maintains, "1 gained so much by being home -with my husband." Miss Vance said 6he is now appearing on "all the p a n e 1 Innocents Revise Protege Program Several revisions have taken place for this year in the Innocent Society's Pro tege Program it was an nounced today. The program, which is de signed to form professional contacts between outstanding seniors and community lead ers, links 50 senior men each year with Lincoln business men in ilieir respective fields, In the hope that they will meet periodically to discuss career possibilities and busi ness practices. Candidates for this year's program will be submitted by living units rather than by college deans as in the past. Frank Partsch, Protege Program co-chairman, said application blanks would be shows and having a wonder ful time; it's so much fun to be yourself after you've been someone else for so long." In addition to her work in show business, which includes a part in an upcoming Broad way musical, Miss Vance said she devotes a great deal pf time to volunteer work for mental hospitals. She refuses to call her work in this field charity because of the enjoyment she derives from it. Miss Vance said she became interested in working with mental patients five or six years ago and now works for six different mental hos pitals in Connecticut 'It's wonderful to work w ith the patients because they all know me from television," she said. "We have little ses sions and trade symptoms." Miss Vance's Lincoln plans include a probable visit to the Nebraska State Hospital. She said that in the future she and Lucy hope to do some special television shows together. She explained she would take another acting role if she could find one about a happily married woman and one "that I wouldn't have to stay in too long." 600 Seniors Served By Teacher Placement Over 600 graduating seniors will register with the Teacher Placement Division during the school year, according to Dr. Wesley Meierhenry, coordina tor of teacher placement. Meetings on Oct. 27 and Nov. 2 at 4 p.m. in Love Li brary auditorium have been set to accommodate the in creased number of regis trants.

The .division prepares a set of credentials for each Teach ers College graduate to assist in securing desired positions- sent to all house presidents within the next few days and must be returned to the In nocents Society, Nebraska Union, by Oct. 25. The program will begin im mediately after Christmas vacation instead of late spring. "This will allow a longer period of time during which the businessmen can help their proteges," Partscb said. Selections will not be weighed heavily toward pro fessions such as medicine and law as was done previously. Majors of aU subjects are urged to apply, Partsch said. Off-campus seniors may pick tip applications for the Protege Program in the Placement Office, 304 Ne braska Union. f o Begin Forums Bv Jan Itkin Junior Staff Writer Student government, con servative politics, civil rights and religion are tentative subjects for discussion at the first session of the "H y d e Park" forum today at 3:30 p.m. in the Union lounge. Liz Aitkin, chairman of the Union Talks and Topics com mittee, said that tentative speakers have expressed an interest in these topics and others including the Viet Nam teach-in, Latin American poli tics, the position of the off campus independent, mon archy vs. anarchy and the John Birch Society. "We are not trying to start any student riots," Miss Ait kin said. "We simply want to stimulate students and make them think." Any student or faculty mem ber who wants to speak on any subject may mount the forum and do so. "The forum will continue until people finish speaking, but there will be a 20-minute limit on each person s I speech," Miss Aitkin ex ; plained. j Other ground rules include: i The order of the speakers will be determined by signing a sheet f paper which will be in the lounge at 3:30 p.m. A speaker may yield the floor to someone else during his 20 minutes but the tim e limit will still hold. "This way,"" Miss Aitkin ex plained, "we hope to avoid big fights over w ho speaks next." She added that the speaker would have a microphone and stand on a raised platform and that people in the audi ence are encouraged to ask questions or dispute points. Miss Aitkin stressed. "We want students to have ideas about important issues and to be able to defend their ideas, and here is a place where they are welcome to do so." ; Applications Still Open For Missouri Tickets Today is the last day for students to apply for Missou ri tickets. Applications require a student identification card, and a student may apply for one ticket only. Applications may be made at the coliseum until 4:00 p.m., at which time the ap plication period will be closed. Governor's Office, Closer Understandi A group of campus leaders were called to the governor'6 office Tuesday to begin lay ing the framework for future student - faculty - Statehouse talks on problems at the Uni versity. Dave Evans, one of the gov ernor's administrative assis tants, said a program of this type could include talks be tween government officials and occupational leaders with students about Nebraska, its problems and opportunities. He said talks could also be held between the University administration, the faculty, the students and the Nebras PI" " ' WIM"""" "J ! Staff ioto by John rwerk DAVE EVANS discusses plans for future fac- ulty-studeut-capilul talks with Kiger Elm, right, and Cathie Shattiufc k n By Bruce Giles Junior Staff Writer Effective September, 1966, each University student's Social Security number will serve as his student identi fication number. Registrar Floyd Hoover, in explaining the change from the University-devised identification numbers to the Social Security identification numbers, noted that Social Security numbers are "be coming more widely used" Haynie Explains Purpose Of Nebraska Foundation Bv Wayne Kreuscher Senior Staff Writer The difference between ade quacy and excellence this is the role of the Nebraska Foundation. Henry Haynie, president of the Nebraska Foundation, ex plained at a recent foundation orientation meeting for stu dent leaders on campus, that the state legislature provides the University with its ade quate needs, but the University's- friends provide the excellence. He said that the foundation turned over $700,000 to the University for specific pur poses last year from gifts and contributions collected from alumni and friends. In all the foundation re i ceived $2.5 million in total funds in 1964. as compared I with $1.3 million in 1963. This brings the total assets of the foundation to slightly over $7 million. Haynie said that the differ ence between the money col lected and that immediately contributed was kept in perm anent endowment funds which were kept for long range projects. . lie explained that since the foundation started on an ir regular basis in 1936. it has increased from 2.0IMI donors to 67.000 donors. But he said. "This still rep resents only 13 per cent of the University alumni." "Our system of higher edu cation in the United States." hp said, ""will double in its capacity in the next few years. We will have to try and -do again in the next dec ade what our predecessors have done over the past three centuries." He explained tnat if "we are to fulfill our responsibili ties, we will have to go to ka government to iron out campus problems. "Although the state capitol is only a few blocks away from campus,"' Evans said, "there is a wide split in un derstanding between the two." No Partisan Politics He stressed that the talks would have nothing to do with partisan politics and that they would really try to ac complish something w ith them. He agreed that talk was , no good unless action follow ed. Evans pointed out that one j of the capitol's biggest ques-' III ! j uNyinnioeir in all aspects of Identifica tion. Admission applications and transcripts for in-coming freshmen are provided with a special space, con sisting of a three digit space, followed by a two di git space and four digit spacethe form for Social Security numbers. Big Ten Idea The College Entrance Ex amination Board is current work and increase the pro-! gran' of solicitations and edu cation." For example, he said, as the student enrollment goes up, sutdent assistance w i 1 1 i also have to climb. "We have a great football team." he stressed, "but in the Big Light, as far as alumni support goes, we are only at the half point" He explained that if the foundation were to continue upholding the school's excel leice, the first effort would be to solicit the help of stu dents. Haynie said that many stu dents didn't even realize the foundation existed, yet alone how important it is to the school and the students them selves. Examples of some of the things the foundation has ac complished in the past start with the foundation's $13,750 program of professorships and chairs for distinguished teach ing. The foundation .upports eleven such chairs, held by Professors Henry Kauinagar ten, Norman Cromwell Cur tis Elliott, Carl Georgi, Ptoyce Knapp, John Lonnquist, How ard Ottoson, Trugut S a r p -kaya, Karl Shapiro. James Weber and Waiter Wright. The foundation gives these men. chosen by the Board of Regents, substantial bonuses in addition to their regular salaries. Other faculty benefits, sup ported by the foundation, in clude sabbatical leaves, such as the four to six which are supported each year in hu manities. In the area of student as sistance, Haynie said more than 750 students are being assisted this semester with scholarships, grants-in-aid and loans from the foundation. University Seek ng Through Talks tions is if there really are problems on the campus and if the Nebraska government could help in any way to iron them out He said the governor's of fice felt there prossibly were problems, or lack of commu nications, but that they need ed to talk to the students themselves to find out exact ly what these problems were and how serious they might be. Student discussjon at t he meeting indicated there were problems and that better com- iUUIJJUd UUJJ cJJJU UMUriMdllUUg between the students, tl,e fac ulty and administration and the Nebraska government would be beneficial. Apathetic Administration Students pointed out that the problems included an apathet ic administration and faculty who did not encourage student thinking about the issues of today, too little stress on the humanities and undefined or unrealistic liquor laws. It was broii glil up at the meeting that (here vcrc real ly no formal channels at the present time through which t ly using the Social Security numbers of students for iden tification as are some of the Big Ten Conference schools. John Aronson, director of admissions, said that the American College Testing Program and other colleges and universities across the country are also consider ing requiring Social Secur ity numbers for identifica tion. Aronson said that the So- "Although the foundation givt s scholarships to only five per cent of the undergradu ates, there is one of these foundation-supported students for very four in the top per cent scholastically of the stu dent body. And many of these1 students would not be here un less they had this financial 'ncouragement." he said. He explained that besides) student and faculty aid. vol-j untary support has played an j important role in producing! physical facilities for the Uni- j versity. He listed the following ex amples: "on Love .Memorial Li-: b-arv, erected in 1942 for $900,000; Ralph Mueller Caril lon "ower. built in 1949 for $83,000; hc .Mueller Planetar ium constructed in 1957 for !

The Nebraska Center tor Continuing Education, a $3 million structure, of which $1.1 million was raised by the foundation, along with a $1.5 million grant from the Kellog Foundation. Behlen Building, an addition to Brace Lab tor Physics: and j the Nelle Cochrane Woods! Art Building, built in 1963. j Every piece of art in Shel- j don Art Gallery and the ex-1 hibitions in Morrill Hall. "These are the principal j buildings which are a vital ; part of the academic program j and all constructed through ! voluntary support." Haynie said. He explained that in the fu-! ture, a Centennial Theater lor j Performing Arts is being j sought from gifts. He said i they hoped it could be fin- j ished bv the University's Cen-1 tennial Year of 1909. ! the ordinary student could meet with the administration and discuss school problems. Evans said that another meeting would be held in the next few weeks of more stu dent leaders. .faculty memb ers and the administration to make further plans for these talk. He said that the governor's office itself probably wouldn't sponsor the talks, but that it would be a combination of the Nebraska government, the As sociation of Students of 1 h e University of Nebraska, the University adminis'ration and the faculty. Activities Mart Opens On City Campus Only T h e freshman activities mart will be held only on the i city campus this year, ascord ! ing to Carol Strand. AWS ac ! tivities mart chairman. In past ye; rs. the mart had , been held on both city and East comnuwe Miss Strand said that lack of par'icipation uti the East campus was the reason for the chance.

The Social Security num ber would be more perma nent and would be included on a student's records from high school through college. More Accuracy Hoover pointed out that re quests for transcripts could be handled with more ac curacy. He said a person might call in and ask for a transcript of his grades. However, there might be four or five people with that same name. With the per manent Social Security iden tification number, this could be eliminated. "It's ultimate use." said Hoover," is that with com patible computer systems, universities could transfer information on students by just sending them punched cards." "It is anticipated the change-over for current Uni versity students from their present student ID number to the Social Security ID number would take place be fore next fall. Hoover noted that Social Security offices were reluc tant to assign Social Secur ity numbers to foreign stu dents, who would be in the United States for only sev eral years. However, he said that in such cases, the University would assign their own num bers, "but within the Social Security framework." 'Panhel Night' Features Talk, Top Scholars Cher 1.200 sorority women attended '"Panhellenic Night", the kick-off meeting for Pan hellenic Week. Monday. "Maturity is a slow process of growth and experience." said Mrs. Graeme Reid. grand jjresident of Gamma Phi Beta and guest speaker. Mrs. Reid stressed that an emphasis on scholarship must be deeper than a required grade point average it must create a "love of learning." ''e will survive." she said, "if we are useful, flourish if we are purposeful and will continue if we are alert. We must establish true fraternity as our foremost goal."
