Sandoz frosh get optional hours in experiment
Freshman eirls hava com i Xantr
way from the not-so-distant days of 10
This year the University has agreed
to let first semester freshmen having
parental permission take part in an
optional hours experiment at Mari
The freshmen, according to Sandoz
residence director Mrs. Paulie
McCown, will join Sandoz up
perclassmen in the night watchman
identification card system tried at the
dorm last sem aster.
Each girl is issued an ID card
bearing her picture, color-coded by
class. The cards, kept in a central file,
are removed by the night watchmaa
when he lets a girl in after regular
closing time 11 p.m. on weeknights,
1 a.m. Friday and Saturday nights
and midnight Sunday.
If a girl wishes to leave the dorm
again after her card is taken out of
the file, she need only inform the
watchman, who will replace her card
to the "out" file.
An overnight is still an overnight,
however, and girls must still sign out
if they intend to return to the dorm
after 7 a.m.
Girls under 20 must have parental
permission to participate in the optio
nal hours system, and each girl pays a
dollar for her ID card and one dollar a
month to hire the night watchman.
Since parental permission forms are
still being sent in, Mrs. McCown could
not given an accurate count of the new
girls participating in the system.
The sytem worked so well at Sandoz
last semester when 300 residents took
part that the University has given all
campus living units the option of
staying on the key system where up
perclassmen may check out keys in
the evening, let themselves in after
hours, and return the keys before 7
a.m. or of changing to the night
Sandox Is the only hall were
freshmen are allowed to set their own
hours, however. Mrs. McCown, Sandoz
RD, says the grades and hours of
Sandoz freshmen will be compared
with those of other University
freshmen to determine if the optional
hours affect a girl's grades for the
"We can keep track of individual
girls through the IID cards," she said,
"and we won't let anybody go off the
Mrs. McCown is very much in favor
of the optional hours system, which
worked well with second semester
Sandoz freshmen last year. It is more
convenient, also more secure than the
key system, she says.
The ID cards give the University
more control on individual students,
while parental permission reduces the
University's liability, according to
Miss Diane Cook, residence director
at Smith Hall, also favors the system,
which her 150 upperclassmen voted in
this week, because of its greater con
venience and security. Smith will go
on the system as soon as a night wat
chman is hired.
For SeUeck girls, the cost of a
watchman is not worth a change, ac
cording to their RD, Miss Dori Shef
field. The 148 upperclassmen felt they
were "getting along fine with keys,"
Mss Sheffield said. If, as a result of
the Sandoz experiment, freshmen go
on the optional hours system, Selleck
might adopt the new system, she said.
Over 125 Chinese students
will celebrate the Chinese
"Moon Festival" Friday on
the University campus.
The date is August IS by
the Chinese Lunar Calendar
and commemorates the oust-
lng of the Yuen Dynasty
which had submitted the
Chinese to rule by the Mon
gols for 90 years, and the
beginning of the Ming Dy
nasty. Chinese patriots pass
ed information of the revo
lution by putting messages
inside moon cake, hence the
celebration of the event is
called the "Moon Festival."
The University of Nebras
ka Chinese Student Associa
tion, with 55 new members
from all over the world and
particularly Hong Kong plan
to meet once a month and
celebrate as many Chinese
holidays as possible.
The CSA also has tentative
plans for a number of events
open to the campus such as
a Chinese New lear exhibi
tion, a dinner of Chinese
food and a Chinese movie.

Pound and Women's Residence halls
will decide this week what system to
adopt. WRA President Barb
Ahlschwede thought that her 102 up
perclassmen will stick with the key
system rather than assume the cost of
a night watchman.
AWS Key Chairman Julie Marolf said
that East Campus living units and
sorority houses will retain the key
system, since their size makes the
night watchman system Impractical.
Will the University consider in
cluding night watchman service in the
housing budget so that smaller living
units could afford it? Yes, according
to Housing Director Ely Meyerson. If
it is what the majority of students and
their parents want, the University will
So far, he said, girls wanting the
optional hours privilege have agreed
to support the cost of it.
Meyerson pointed out that the
students will pay far the night
watchmen one way or another. Men
students would share tho cost with tbe
girls if it were a part of the overall
housing budget, he noted.
"There is no question that the night
watchman system is more secure than
keys," Meyerson said, "but the key
system can work if the girls are very
