Nine Coeds To Experience
European Life This Summer
By Randy Ircy
Junior Staff Writer
A summer of living and
learning in Europe is the
prospect for nine coeds who
will participate in a program
sponsored by People-to-Peo-ple.
The continental students-to-be
are Susan Baade, Kaye
Kersenbrock, Penny Hulac,

a campus orientation period
and a tour of Washington. D.
C will fly to Brussels. Fol
lowing another orientation
period there, they will divide
up, with each girl living with
three different families for
about a w eek each.
In this manner they gain
the personal ties of living
with a foreign family while
also learning about the coun
try in which they are staying.
The girls were chosen after
interviews in which they were
judged on the basis of their
grade average, participation
in activities, and the image

Housemothers who opposed
the key system didn't feel
their houses would be safe
nor did they think that later
hours are necessary. Their
attitudes were:
"I'm against a key system.
I don't think I would ever

A former Marine corporal,
now a sophomore at the Uni
versity, made a plea at Hyde
Park yesterday that students
"for their own safety" obey
the traffic signals at the corn
er of 14th and S St.
should consult the Lancaster
County Tax Assessor's office
in Lincoln about reporting
their personal property.
In addition, students over
21 may be subject to certain
other taxes, including the
head tax. poll tax and the
Kerr-Mills tax. Peters said.
He said that the enforce
ment of personal property
tax laws has become more
sophisticated and that the tax
commissioner's office could
be used as a clearing agency
for obtaining names of peo
ple that should be reporting
personal property.
Peters added that it would
be quite easy to get a list of
all students "from the Univer
sity and then report them
back to the individual county
"In fact, some of the county
assessors have asked us to do
this." Peters said.
If students or their parents
they would present as Amer
icans in a foreign nation.
"People-to-People is an or
ganization developed by for
mer President Eisenhower in
1956. Its goals are to promote
better international under
standing," explained Donnie
Jones, vice president of the
local campus organization.
Not only does it function on
the college level, but it has
also developed programs
which allow whole communit
ies to participate in similar
travel programs.
"Once an entire senior
class from a high school
traveled to Europe," Miss
Jones related.

Duane Tappe said one thing
students themselves could do
about the conditions at the
corner would be to start "pay
ing attention to what they
are doing, take it on your ow n
to w ait for the light."
'The other day I saw a girl
almost run over." Tappe said.
He said the coed was crossing
the street about 10:25 a.m.
following a large crowd of stu
dents and that she "tried to
squeeze between" stopped
cars which accelerated about
the same time.
Tappe said one thing the
city could do in the immedi

"definite pedestrian cross

Peters said that it would be
hard to make an estimate of
how much money this would
add to the state tax rolls.
However, he did say that the
S" head tax for persons over
21 would be the largest por
tion of the money added.
"As far as the University
student is concerned, the prin
ciple is more important than
the money involved." Peters
