Vhlan Vance ... 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

Innocents Revise

Several revisions have
taken place for this year in
the Innocent Society's Pro

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

Candidates for this year's

by college deans as in the

Program co-chairman, said

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."

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

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

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

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
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." ;

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

"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."

He explained that if the
foundation were to continue
upholding the school's excel

be to solicit the help of stu

foundation existed, yet alone
how important it is to the
school and the students them

Apathetic Administration
Students pointed out that the
problems included an apathet

who did not encourage student
thinking about the issues of
today, too little stress on the
humanities and undefined or
unrealistic liquor laws.

The Social Security num

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

be eliminated.
"It's ultimate use." said

change-over for current Uni

Hoover noted that Social

dents, who would be in the
United States for only sev

However, he said that in
such cases, the University
would assign their own num
