The Daily Nebraskan Page 5 Wednesday, March 2, 1966 Liberal Regulations At Foreign Schools Surprise Women Exchange Students By Toni Victor Junior Staff Writer Foreign universities are for the most part liberal about hours for women, according to several University foreign students and Americans who have attended schools in oth er countries. "We had no hours at Chung Chi College," said Jean Wong, a graduate student in chem istry from Hong Kong. She said that the dormitories were closed at midnight or one, but that girls could ring the bell and be let in. She stated that no type of demerit sys tem was employed. "A girl had to sign out as to where she was going, but we were allowed to go home and take overnights any night of the week," continued Miss Wong. She thought that t h e women were trusted more at her former college, and per haps were more responsible there than here. There are no dormitories for women at the Colegio de Mexico, stated Susie Rutter Cont. from Pg. 1, Col. 7 "Rather than a period of physical exhaustion, the idea now is to make it mean something to the pledge. It is one last thing to unify a pledge class," said Greg An drews, IFC affairs committee chairman. Phi Gamma Delta is the one fraternity which no long er even has a help week. President John Kenagy said, "Pledge training throughout the semester suffices as a fi nal binding together and it isn't necessary. The pledges still plan a social service project, but it is not done in conjunction with initiation." 'Rewarding Experience' Bob Milligan, president of Alpha Tau Omega fraternity, described help week as a re warding and interesting ex perience. More emphasis is placed on constructive work and influential speakers from professional organizations are scheduled. The pledges spend one eve ning In the homes of Lincoln alumni. Help week is the transition period to active membership and is the final climax before initiation, Milli gan said. Alpha Tau Omega presents a fraternity help week award on Ivy Day to base the award on the number of pledges ac tivated, grade average, and service to the community and to the University. 'Culminates Pledgeshlp' "Help week is a culmina tion of pledgeship. It is not a time for catching up, it's a time for summing up," said Bob Fulton, Beta Theta Pi pledge trainer. The Beta pledges work at the Nebraska State Hospital mopping and waxing floors, washing windows and also work with the patients. An other work project is at the State Capitol arranging files and polishing the liberty bell. In addition they also have house projects. Jack Guggenmos, president of Delta Upsilon, described their help, health and con struction program as a speed ed up week of study and con structive work In the house. "We have real good active support but the attitude of the actives Is dying out. They are coming around to the idea that it is not as beneficial as it should be. I would like to For teachert who wan more money, more congenial locution or special assistance in meeting a particular situation, eontacti THE DAVIS SCHOOL SERVICE Our tervice coven the entire United States. 501 Stuurt Building Lincoln, Nebraska Phone 4324954 No feet or target until you have received acceptable tervice.

Conse quently there are no special rules or regulations for wom ei, she said. Miss Rutter also studied at the University of Madrid in Spain. At Madrid, she ex plained, there were dormitor ies, but no demerit systems. She attributes this to the more liberal atmosphere in foreign countries. Miss Rutter stated that de spite the lack of hours, the women seemed, to get their studying done. No Need Janine Jensen, a University junior, lived for the summer in Switzerland and has sev eral friends at the Univer sity of Zurich. Miss Jensen feels that the women there are generally mature and do not have a need for strict hours and demerits. Pia Dranth, a University student from the Netherlands, exclaimed, "I led a free life at the Agricultural Univesity of the Netherlands. I was Fraternity Help see the climax of a pledge be initiation and not help week," he said. Positive Effect Kappa Sigma president Bill Stryk said, "We feel this is a positive substitute for all types of hazing used in the past. Through the efforts of working and informative lec tures pledges are bound to gether as a unit, and work as one for the betterment of the house through unity, cooper ation and brotherhood." Bob Strayer, president of Triangle fraternity, said their help week has both construc tive projects and odd prac tices. One fraternity president said the program is a little of both help and hell but it is more help now. He said the pledges have lots of rules, are required to work hard and are expected to fulfill their tasks. Duties and tradi tion are combined with clean ing and fixing the house. Intensive Education An intensive program of education about the fraterni ty, projects in the house it self and a community project are parts of help week in Del ta Tau Delta fraternity, pre sident Dave Geier said. "It gives the pledges an oppor tunity to work together and makes them aware of the purposes of the fraternity and the ideals we uphold." Alpha Gamma Rho's help week program is a complete revision of what was carried on five or six years ago, pre sident Ken Beebe explained. Constructive projects as op posed to the old derogatory type are planned to make a pledge appreciate exactly what the fraternity is. Jim Kinyoun said the main purpose of help week is Sig ma Phi Epsilon is to get the house cleaned up, but includ ed in the program also are outside speakers. IFC Regulations IFC passed the following by-laws regarding hazing in May, 1963. 1. All hazing practices are forbidden at the University of Nebraska. Any tactics likely to prove injurious to the pledge or any form of activ ity that may bring discredit to the fraternity of the or ganized fraternity system as a whole is prohibited.

Miss Dranth explained that at her former school, a girl lives in a room in town and is free to leave and come home when she pleases. Hours In France The University of Dijon in France does have dormitories and hours for women during the regular sessions, accord ing to Mrs. Carol Youseffi who studied there for the summer. Mrs. Youseffi noted that quite a few of the schools in France do not provide dor mitories. Mrs. Monsoor Ahmad, a University student from India, previously attended Bihar University in India. She said that dormitories were p r o -vided for the women students, but that many women lived in town. Mrs. Ahmad ex explained that curfew hours were set by the individual, depending upon how much studying one had to do.

Housing Code Protects Student Health, Welfare "Students develop a de pressed attitude from living m housing that is marginel or sub-standard," stated off- campus Housing Officer, Wayne L. Blue. According to Blue, this psy chological factor is one of the prime reasons for enforce, ment of the Housing Code as passed by the Board of Re gents. Both male and female soph omores and freshmen under twenty-one years of age are affected by this code and must be living in University approved housing, on or off campus. Last semester approximate ly 3,777 single men lived off campus in approved housing. as shown in figures compiled by the Housing Office. Upperclassmen may also use the facilities of the Hous ing Office to judge the desir ability of intended housing. Married couples do not come under the jurisdiction of the office, said Blue. He felt that in this circumstance the wife will usually be more partic ular about the housing ar rangement than the Housing Office. Two important facets of the code for housing approval, said Blue, are the managerial concept and the environmen tal condition. The first, he explained, con cerns the necessity of having a person be responsible for students living in such off campus housing as apart Yon? 00 WE'D LIKE TO START YOU AT THE TOP WITH LIMOUSINE, AND COUNTRY CLUB, AND GUARANTEED BIG BANK AC COUNT.

If the manager's attitude toward the students living in the apartment is less than desir able, the housing Office will often reconsider University ' approval. The second important con dition for approval is the ac tual physical condition of the housing. The situation should be conducive to study. Also, in an apartment shared by two men, the bedroom must be 120 square feet, said Blue, and must contain single beds for health reasons. Blue stated that the Hous ing Office is providing a val uable service to students oy of'iii! ig its facilities to judge the condition of intended hous ing.
