Wiese said the total this year was

total is based on solicitations this

students, and a dance.
The dance made about $800, he

Nebraska's Joe Cipriano and
Michigan State's John Bennington
exchanged obvious expressions of
disapproval with the officiating as
each coach collected a technical
foul in the game.
After Cip was assessed his
technical in the first half, he looked
to the Michigan State bench and
received Bennington's consent on
the play. Both coaches laughed.
BENNINGTON INCURRED his

American Cancer Society.
There will be a faculty drive
conducted by AUF members this
spring. Money collected in that
drive has traditionally gone to an

One of tfc most demanding labs
at the University of Nebraska is the
Home Economics Management
Lab. This lab takes 24 hours a day.
The lab lasts for five weeks, ac

time six girls live together and do
their own cooking, cleaning, and all
other activities associated with

Home Mangement Labs have
been in existence at Nebraska since
the 1920's, she said. At first they
were known as "practice houses"
and were considered the culmina
tion of a Home Economics educa
tion. The original "houses" were con
ducted in converted residences
near the city campus. Their object
was to give the students a chance
to practice what they bad learned
in their classes, she said.
THE LABS ORIGINALLY
included the care of children.
However, this portion of the cur
riculum has been dropped.
Students were required to live in
the house for the full period in the
early labs. There were no pro

"Each item has been hand-ap-pliqued
by the Indians," she ex

utilizes layers of cloth, but I am not

The shop also has a large selec

subject matter from trends in the
arts to the art of the film.

solicitations into three groups. He

visions for married students or for
students who could not live in the
lab for other reasons. Miss Wahn
said that emphasis of the early
labs was on the absolute "right and
wrong" of situations and pro
cedures. Today the emphasis is different.
"Instead of simply practicing the
practical aspects, girls practice the
theory of home management," she
"Instead of teaching the strictly
right and wrong way to do
something, we try to teach what is
right or wrong in the context of a
specific situation," she continued.
"The new emphasis in the lab is on
people, not things."

points on 6-11 field goal tries and
10-13 free throw attempts.
Steady Bob Gratopp and flashy
Tom Scantlebury did their part in
the win, too. Gratopp was suc
cessful on five of eight tries from
the field and canned four of five
free throws for 14 points.
Scantlebury popped in 15 points,
but inflicted major damage with
timely assists to Gratopp. Scantz
revealed an assortment of offensive
maneuvers, one of which was an
unorthodox scoop shot while fouled.
He shot over 50 per cent from the
field and contributed eight re
bounds. Michigan State, which held one
point leads on three occasions in
the early going, were paced by Lee
Lafayette. The 6-6 center, who
averaged over 18 points a game
last season for the Big Ten
Spartans, was held to 14 points.
Bernie Copeland added 12 points.
That drive collected over $1000
from fraternity houses.
"There were rather substantial
contributions received from houses
that had given small or average
amounts before," Wiese said, ad
ding "that several former large
contributing houses gave very little
or nothing this year."
He explained the fraternity total
has been slowly increasing over the
past few years and noted that there
were slightly fewer houses con
tributing this year than previously.

portion of the lab. The participants
are graded on the nearness of their
performance to a criteria set up
before the lab begins, she said.
Students carry out projects ia
standards and work simplification.
They also do practical work in ef

Two entertainment projects must
be carried out during the lab, she
continued. These may be almost
any kind of entertainment and are
completely planned by the students
themselves. They also do a house
improvement project that can
range from washing windows to
making new curtains. Again, th
