sNivssstnr gf nessi UIRARY MAR 18 Friday, March 18, 1966 The Daily Nebraskan Vol. 81, No. 82 'Success, Trying' Mark KK Show By RANDY IREY Junior Staff Writer "How To Succeed In Busi ness Without Really Trying" will be a "success" with j W of "trying", according to Mrs. Lou Hall. Mrs. Hall, director of the Spring Kosmet Klub musical, said that this year's program is progressing well. "This week we have been able to run through the show without any script," she commented. "Wednesday night we were able to perform the first act without any correcting." The director explained that her plan for putting the pro gram together begins with the little ingredients. "We take these individual aspects of the show and polish them well. Since this is a comedy, the timing must be perfect." "With these little parts, we put together a scene. There are over twenty-five scenes in the show, so this take a great deal of time. When we have perfected the scenes, we put them together into the acts. This is where we are now." "I feel that if you take every small part of the show and develop it and polish it to per fection, then the completed work will be a beautiful whole." 'Students First' The cast has been rehears ing since Feb. 20. At first practices were from 7:00 to 9:30 p.m., but they are now running up to 11:00. Mrs. Hall stated she be lieves the cast students are "students first." "Because of Rush Book Completed The copy and layout for the Tnterfraternity rush book has been completed, according to Dave Cumins, co-editor of the book. He said it marks one of the earliest dates ever for the completion of the book. Cummins said the book will be published by the end of April. Distribution date de pends on the IFC Rush Com mittee, but the book is sent so that prospective rushees can have time to read and study the publication during the summer. Work began on the book in November. Most of the in formation came from house presidents. Individual por traits were taken by a private photographer, and other photo graphs either came from the 1965 Cornhusker or were taken by the editors. "The coperation of the fra ternities was very good this year," Cummins explained. The rush book is sent to all boys who graduated in t h e upper half of their high school class and have indicated that they will attend the Univer sity. The main purpose of t h e boks, Cummins noted, "is to acquaint new collegians with the fraternity system. Fra ternities often have a bad con notation among parents, and we try to emphasize the schol arship and special projects that fraternities engage In. "We want prospective pledges to realize that frater nity life is significant not only for the social aspect, but for god scholarship as well," he ' added. Computer Collects Couples By RANDY IREY Junior Staff Writer Students will soon have a chance to meet their "ideal" date as chosen by a comput-. er. They will have not one, but three of these dates in one night. This is all part of Founda tion Week, April 18-22, spon sored by the Builder's SEED committee. "Foundation Week is de signed to acquaint the Uni versity student with the Ne braska Foundation and its ac tivities," said Cindy Pauley, chairman of Builder's camp us promotions. The afore-m e n t i o n e d "ideal" dates will be a part of the planned Computer this, I schedule the rehearsals so that every second of time is put to valuable use," she said. "We have placed tables in the back of the rehearsal room so that the students can study while they are not on the stage." There are fifty-one perform ers in the case. Since not everyone attended every re hearsal, until recently there has been no idea toward con tinuity in the show, according to Mrs. Hall. She explained that of all the performers, but four must be able to sing, act and dance. Thus, no one has a specialty, and it gives everyone more to do. Final Rehearsals The next week of rehearsal is going to be the important one, she said. "Saturday night we plan to go through the whole show. Next Tuesday and Wednesday we will go through it twice each night with Wed nesday being a full-dress tech nical rehearsal at Pershing Auditorium. "Thursday night will be the final dress rehearsal. We should be ready Wednesday night, and Thursday we should reach perfection in the technical area." Mrs. Hall said that "How to Succeed" is especially hard, because the script makes up an integral part of the show. In most musicals, the script only holds the songs together. Comedy Important "I've even been practicing with the performers during the day, perfecting the im portant comic dialogue," stated Mrs. Hall. "I think that the cast has been working very hard and are doing a good job. They realize that if you work hard at something like this and can then do a good job, a great deal of satisfaction can be gained." "The morale has been real good and spring fever has not shown up yet. There is al ways a big life for the cast to get on the stage with real props, which we will do next week. I know that by Friday we will be ready with a great show." Mrs. Hall did have one cor rection to make on a previous article in the Daily Nebras kan. She said that she had been misquoted on the nature of the business around which the show is. It appeared in print as "world-wife liquor company", but should have said "world-wide wicket com pany." Tassels Request Student Opinions On Homecoming Questionnares concerning next years' Homecoming cele bration have been distributed to living units in an effort to "find out just what the stu dents want", according to Donni Maclay, Tassels Home coming chairman. "We want to see what they want and then formulate p 1 a n s for next fall's Home coming," she said. Miss Maclay added that Tassels realize that Home coming plans should be chan ged to insure a successful Homecoming. "Nothing will be decided for about two weeks," she noted. dance April 22 in the Nebras ka Union. Questionnaires will be filled out by both men and women. The forms will be run through a computer matching each male with a "machine picked" female, and vice versa. Only 500 tickets will be sold to each sex. The dance will be divided Into three parts. After each segment, the individual will receive a new partner. The dance is planned for the Un ion ballroom and features the Mods combo. Another aspect of Founda tion Week will be a dinner to which all presidents of cam pus organizations will be in vited.

According to one assistant professor of physieology, Paul Landolt, sleep is something which each individual must regulate to his own needs.

But it will merely mean the start of Greek Week at the University, April I. A torch will be lighted at Crete and runners from each fraternity will carry the torch on into Lincoln. Togas will be sewn by sororities. The parade of chariots will begin at 3 p.m. with each house supplying the chariot and manpower, and sorority houses supplying the girls to ride in them. Starting at the Sigma Chi fraternity house, the parade will go south on 16th Street, west on R and north on 14th to the Stadium. The Greek Games will fol low at the Stadium. They will include a twelve-legged race and an obstacle race for the women. The men will be included in a chariot race, a pyramid race, a tug of war and a new game, the Volks Tote. Originating at the Univer sity of California, the Volks Tote consists of carrying a Volkswagen from a starting point to the finish point. All those carrying the car t h en must get into the car and give the dinner speech. A display will be placed in the Union lounge showing what the Foundation does and sponsors. On April 19 and 20, a booth will be constructed in which slides will be shown on the activities of the Foun dation. These slides will also be shown during the year to all the living units on campus. The purpose underlying all this is an attempt, according to Miss Pauley, to get stu dents active In the Founda tion and aware of it before they graduate. The Nebraska Foundation handles all the gifts and grants given to the Univer sity.

Greg Andrews, IFC affairs chair man said it is hoped that The Boys Next Door will play for the ball. The group has trav eled widely with the Beach Boys. Princess Athena will be named at the ball. Each sorority will submit a can didatewho will be inter viewed next week. Finalists will be voted on at the Greek Week Ball. A Chariot Bath will be held on Saturday with the money earned going to some charity or needy organization in the Lincoln community, accord ing to Andrews. Andrews said there would be a Greek church emphasis on Sunday morning with the IFC Executive Council par ticipating in a Softball game in the afternoon. The house mothers tea will be held in the Nebraska Union at 2:30 p.m. Panhellenic has challenged IFC to a quiz bowl at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday. During t:ie same time IFC will hold seminars on rush and scholar ships in room 232 and 234 of the Union. Jerry Olson IFC scholarship chairman will lead the scholarship seminar with Jack Shreck, IFC rush chair arship funds given privately and help to provide money for the construction of new buildings on the campus. The Foundation helped pro vide the funds for the Ralph Mueller tower, Sheldon Art Gallery, and other buildings. It will also provide some money for the proposed wom en's physical education build ing. According to Miss Pauley, the average University alum does not contribute or take part in the Foundation until he has been out of school for ten years. The goal of this special week and other projects is to lower the time span between graduation and participation. Functions Of Campus Political Parties Noted EDITOR'S NOTE: T his story is the second in a ser ies by Jan Itkin, senior staff writer, on the role political parties could play in the framework of student govern ment. One student government executive Thursday questioned the need for political parties in student government, while a student senator insisted that parties "have an inherent po tential to serve a very useful function." Larry Frolik, ASUN vice president, said, "Political par ties are formed generally for election motives rather than legislative. They aren't really suited to legislative purposes, because issues brought before student government are not usually adaptive to ideological debate." He added, "If they do serve some purpose, I haven't seen it demonstrated except for election victories." Mut al Consent According to the traditional organizations of parties, there must be a mutual consent to ideals which is generally lacking in a campus commu nity, he noted. "With a transient popula tion, like that of a University, it is difficult to create lasting values so as to create a last ing fervor necessary for this iiiiiiiiiiii!iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiii Milium miiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii:iiiiii minim iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimiiiiiiiiitiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiwiimiius Cyclists Protest Ruling "Inconvenient, expensive and ridiculous" These are the comments of motorcycle enthusiasts re garding an ordinance passed man in charge of the rush seminar. Sorority and fraternity houses will have exchange din ners Monday night at 5:30. Ail Greeks will hear an address by Dr. W. Rex Brown, the dean of men at the University of Oklahoma. Andrews said that ser anades will be encouraged Monday night. Tuesday night a recogni tion dinner will be held honor ing top Greek scholars, the sophomore IFC scholarship winner, the Abrahamzon Award recipient and new members of Gamma Gamma, senior Greek honorary. Andrews said that entry blanks are due at 4 p.m. Fri day for Gamma Gamma, the Greek games, Princess Ath ena and the Abrahamzon Award. During Greek Week a trav eling display from the Na tional Interfraternity confer ence and Panhellenic Confer ence will be exhibited in the Union lounge. Andrews noted that the display has been at the New York Worlds Fair. H.

Interested parties should sign up for an interview time on the time sheet outside the room. mutual consent," Frolik add ed. "We also lack the basic needs or consideration," he continued. "As a result the parties become absurdities or special interest groups con cerned with power rather than theories." Sen. K e 1 1 e y Baker disa greed, "So far political par ties haven't been a particu larly vital force because the one that has been formed did not remain active throughout the year. They do, however, have an inherent potential to serve a very useful function other than campaigning." Legislative Debate "This function would lie in the area of legislative debate,' he added. "Had there been any opposition, the Vox Pop uli would have been a more effective organization in this area." "An issue like the Tassels question that arose earlier this year would have been suited to the differences in ideologies that political par ties could play a part in," Baker continued. "Parties should be based on differences of issues, like conservatives versus liberals rather than personalities or friendships," he added. "Then one party could oppose an is sue and the other one sup recently by the Lincoln City Council requiring operators of motorcycles and their pas sengers to wear helmets. One University student, Ar nie Peterson, said Thursday that all students interested in contesting this ordinance should attend the City Coun cil meeting Monday where they will be given a chance to protest. 'Unconstitutional' "From what I understand, similar laws have been de clared unconstitutional in Min neapolis and in California," he added. "I don't particular ly want to wear a helmet ev erytime I get on my 'cycle." Peterson noted that a good helmet costs "over $30" and aren't really necessary except for highway use. He added that he had talked to City Councilman John Comstock, who had told him that no one has actually con tested the ordinance and that anyone interested in discuss ing it would be welcome at Monday's meeting. "The idea is that if you don't want to wear a helmet, not to just sit and gripe about it, but go and discuss it with the council," Peterson added. 'Like Satbelt' He continued that while be has never worn a helmet, he has "recently seen more peo ple wearing them than be fore. "The people I know don't wear them, but s o m e are," he commented. "It's like wearing a seat belt," he said. "If you want to wear one, fine. But no one port it and both would do re search." Baker stressed the impor tance of research and infor mation which political parties could supply. Research "With parties to research and study particular issues and then inform the senators on them before the issues come before Senate, more in telligent voting could result," he added. "The way things stand, it is too easy for a senator to be swayed by elo quence if he doesn't know the facts." Frolik said that he believed strong political parties could tend to weakei. student gov ernment. "For instance, it's a big thing to be for student politi cal parties," he said, "But I haven't seen where they've made student government any more vital at Kansas, where they are particularly strong." He added that they might tend to weaken student gov points : P e o p 1 e would develop more loyalty to their party than to student government as such and thus not be aware of their responsibility to the students. And they might make Cont. on Page 3, Col. 2 should say you have to." Peterson added that the or dinance is currently in effect, but no tickets will be given until April 1. "I have received two warn ings, though," he said. Other students contacted had similar reactions to the new ordinance. Chuck Churchill said, "It's kind of ridiculous for guys who have been riding for a long time. A bunch of us are going down to talk to the Council about it." "Lose Points' "I just bought one because I couldn't afford to lose any points, but I wasn't too happy about it," said Rod Walker. "In some ways, however, it might be a good idea." Rod Kocrber said, "It's ri diculous and expensive and doesn't really do that much good. And the fact that pas sengers also have to have helmets is an added expense and inconvenience." "The whole idea is for the birds!" exclaimed Larry Swagger. "A helmet isn't go ing to help." John Martin said, "I'm def initely not for it. I realize lawmakers passed the law for our protection, but I just can't see going down the street earing one." "They're terribly uncomfor table,"' he added. "The only way I can see it is for high way use." Steve Hutchinson summed up the opinion, "It just caus es a lot of unnecessary in convenience and expense."
