'Success, Trying'
Mark KK Show
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

The cast has been rehears

practices were from 7:00 to
9:30 p.m., but they are now
running up to 11:00.

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.

pledges to realize that frater

for the social aspect, but for

Students will soon have a
chance to meet their "ideal"

but three of these dates in
one night.
This is all part of Founda

sored by the Builder's SEED
"Foundation Week is de

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
"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

Mrs. Hall did have one cor
rection to make on a previous

Beginning Of Greek Week
By Bruce Giles
Senior Staff Writer
Highway travelers . from
Crete to Lincoln may wonder
who turned the clock back
when they see a toga-clad
youth running with a torch.
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

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 Foundation helped pro

It will also provide some

part in the Foundation until
he has been out of school for
ten years.
The goal of this special

lower the time span between
graduation and participation.

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.

it is difficult to create lasting

other than campaigning."

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.
"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 "recently seen more peo

don't wear them, but s o m e

"It's like wearing a seat

to wear one, fine. But no one

could supply.
"With parties to research
and study particular issues
and then inform the senators

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
