KK Fall Revue Inherits
Fifty Years
"Fuddled Fables" Satur
day is the latest in more
than 50 years of Kosmet
Klub Fall Shows, according
to KK historian John Jor
gensen. Jorgensen said the organi
zation's history began in
1911 when sevoral junior
class members founded the
group to present a play
for University students.
The fall show was simplv
called the Kosmet Klub Fall
Revue until the use of ba
sic themes in recent years.
In 1963 the theme was
"Kosmic Kapers", in 1964,
'Mad Mad World" and in
1965, "Historical Hysteria".
This year's "Fuddled
Fables" show theme re
sembles the title of "Fan
tasy Fables" in 1955.
Jorgensen compared Kos
met Klub to the "famous
Hare's Foot of Wisconsin
and Princeton's Triangle
Club." He said that It cur
rently ranks in the top
three per cent of all ama
teur theatrical production
groups in the nation.

dispell what Connerelv
called the "myths surround
ing Corps Service."
Owens stated most people
think they know what the
Peace Corps is, but that
they are misinformed on
some of the basics of ser
vice In the Corps.
One of the biggest myths,
as Connerely explained It,
is the idea that a person
must know a language be
fore he can apply to the
Peace Corps.
Of Histo
In 1934 the tradition of
selecting a Nebraska Sweet
heart at the Fall Revue
was begun. The first sweet
heart was Miss Bertha
Haussener. Later competi
tion between prominent
male students for Prince
Kosmet was added. Ralph
Worden being the first in
Last year's royalty were
Miss Suzanne Young, Alpha
Delta Pi, and Frank Solich,
Sigma Nu.
Jorgensen said that the
newest tradition of the Fall
Show is the annual presen
tation of the Stephen Cass
Memorial Scholarship to
the outstanding sophomore
in the College of Engineer
ing and Architecture. This
will be the fourth year for
this presentation.
Tickets for the Nov. 12
show are on sale in a Ne
braska Union booth and
from Kosmet Klub workers
for $1.50. Tickets are also
on sale at the Pershing
Auditorium box office.
The night of the show
tickets can be bought at the
box office for $1.75.

"The Peace Corns has
one of the largest language
training institutions in the
world. We teach 82 1 a n
guages and assume that
Peace Corps applicants
have had no language train
ing," stated Connerely.
In special intensive train
ing, study of a language is
included, though if an ap
plicant is unable to learn a
foreign tongue, he may be
sent to an English-speaking
area such as East Africa.
"One-half of Peace Corns
volunteers are liberal arts
majors," Connerely said
concerning the myth that
all volunteers must have
specific skills.
Liberal arts graduates
are taught skills during
training, said Connerely.
and many times they are
more effective in a field
such as preventative medi
cine than in technology. He
noted that this is because
liberal arts majors are of
ten better equipped to deal
with people and they can
communicate more effec
tively. Volunteers can v be mar
ried or engaged, the recruit
ing team noted. The Owens'
spent two years in Jamaica
working together as Peace
Corps volunteers. Accord
ing to Mrs. Owens, the only
stipulation is that the cou
ple have no dependents
when they enter service.
Mrs. Owens noted that a
married couple has a bet
ter chance of making it
through training period suc
cessfully and is often more
accepted in a community to
which they are sent.
The "Two Years of Sacri-,
fice" image is false, accord
ing to Connerely, who noted
that his two years of ser
vice had been rewarding
and that as a returned vol
u n t e e r he had received
many job offers in business.
He explained that as a
volunteer, he had received
more responsibility in his
position in Africa than a
businessman- could hope to
have in this country by the
time he was forty. Owens
stated that many volunteers
do come back and go to
According to Connerely,
85 per cent of the 1965 Ford
Foundation grants went to

schooling. Connerely stated
that in addition, many op

unteers from the Peace
All Peace Corps men are

boards, stated Connerely.
However, he noted that
though all boards are look
ing carefully at requests for
deferments, Peace Corps
applicants have "had no
problem in getting de
ferred" before entry into
Corps service.
The recruting team will
be on campus for twro weeks
and starting Monday, will
set up a booth in the Ne

ASUN Suit To Ask
Removal Of Senator
In what is expected to be
a lengthy meeting, the Stu
dent Senate will decide
Wednesday what procedure
should be followed in rela
tion to the problem sur
rounding Sen. Mark Sch
reiber's seat.
According to Roger Doerr.
vice president of ASUN,
Sen. Dave Senseney is
planning to make a motion
asking that the Senate act
as plaintiff in a court suit.
The suit would ask that
Schreiber be removed from
his position on the Senate
due to an error in the orig
inal apportionment of the
In the event that the Sen
ate declines to become the
plaintiff, Sen. Liz Ait ken is
prepared to file a suit ask
ing for the same thing.
Miss Aitken said that she
would file the suit against
Schreiber, not because of
any malice towards Schrei
ber, but in an effort to see
the problem solved one
way or the other.
In other action, the Sen
ate will elect two senators
from Graduate College.
Doerr said that a third sen
ator would be chosen, and
he would assume his seat
pending the outcome of the
suit against Schreiber.
A Dead Week proposal
will be made so that the
week, which has already
been designated on the cal
endar, will become official.
Doerr stated that a mo

"The present program, as
it is under ASUN. will be
evaluated by the Senate
which will determine wheth

The Senate will also be

OSU Convention Shows
ASUN Structure 'Tops9
By Randy Ircy
Senior Staff Writer
The structure of ASUN
seems to be one of the best
in the nation according to
the Student Senate dele
gates sent to the Associated
Student Government con
vention at Oklahoma Uni
versity. The delegates (Terry
Schaaf, president of ASUN,
Ron Pfeifer and Dick Sch
ulze, both senators) agreed
on the quality of the ASUN
"We have one of the best
structures and we have a
lot of potential that has to
be developed," explained
Schulze, "O u r potential,
however, must be filled out
in an optimistic and posi
tive manner."
Schaaf stated that other
schools of comparable s!-
to the University have
larger operating budgets.
Pfeifer agreed with Schaaf,
concerning the budget, and
said the ASUN budget is
not large enough.
"ASUN should think in
larger proportions. It should
take on larger projects and
then do them right," Pfeif
er declared. "As the Sen
ate stands, it is about in
the middle of the schools
at the convention concern
ing the projects we assume
and what we accomplish."
Schaaf said that an im
portant idea he gained from
It's I zade-in
loir Sii'esa old.
Like the one about business. Especially
big business. That it is beyond the rugged
individualist's wildest daydream to enter
this holy of holies because he'll lose some
thing that's very sacred - like his inde
pendence. Sure, it can happen. If a guy or gal
wants to hide, or just get by, or not accept
responsibility, or challenges.
We're not omniscient enough or stupid
enough to speak for all business, but at z
company like Western Electric, bright
ideas are not only welcome, they are en
couraged. And no door is shut Create a
little stir, go ahead, upset an old apple
cart (we replace shibboleths at a terrific
pace we have to as manufacturing and
supply unit of the Bell System in order
to provide your Bell telephone company
with equipment it needs to serve you.)
There's an excitement in business. True,
we're in it to make a profit, but working to
the convention was the pos
sibility of the ASUN budget
being based on a per stu
dent allotment.
"Another area that the
ASUN has advantages over
other student governments
is our relationship with the
administration," Schaaf
commented. "Our relation
ship is one of the best and
we do not run into the con
tinual blocking and opposi
tion faced by some of the
Since ASUN is not a mem
ber of the ASG, the dele
gates attended the conven
tion strictly in an observa
tory capacity.
Schaaf said that he felt
the general organization of
ASG is good. "The central
objection that I have to it
is that the majority of its
members are from small
schools under 10,000 in en
rollment. We gain almost
as much by attending the
Big 8 Student Government
conventions, for these are
schools comparable to us in
size and interest."
"However, being a mem
ber of a national group does
have the advantage that
it gives the individual the
opportunity to talk to mem
bers of student government
from other parts of the na
tion," Schaaf said.
The other national student
government organization is

find new and better ways to make things
that help people communicate is very re
warding and satisfying. Did you ever bear
these wry words of Oliver Wendell
Holmes? ''Never trust a generality not
even this one."
That's how we feel about the generality
that claims you'll just become a little cog
in a company like Western Electric. You
might, of course, but if you consider your
self an individual now, odds are 10 to 1
that you'll keep your individuality. And
cherish it. And watch it grow. Even at big,
big Western Electric.

ciation (NSA) Schaaf ex
plained that the NSA diff
ers from the ASG in that
the former takes stands in
national issues.
"The problem is that
they ask you to speak for
the entire student body con
cerning some issue. This 13
something that I would de
cline to do, for it would be
difficult to determine just
what students at the Uni
versity believe on some
controversial issues," he
Pfeifer said that the ac
tions of the NSA could be
better carried out by a
campus organization other
then the Senate.
"It is out of the realm of
student government to adopt
stands on such isues as so
cial security or Vietnam,"
Pfeifer said.
Concerning the ASG, Pf
eifer said that it is "experV
iencing growth pains." He
felt that the ASG couldn't
offer ASUN much as far
as aiding it on such prob
lems as incorporation.
"At the moment, I am
opposed to either national,
organization," Pfeifer con'
Schulze said that he was
not impressed vtth the con
vention. "It has no profes
sional staff of any conse- '
quence and the convention
seminars left something to
be desired."
