Cornhusker Co-op to go coed
"After 2b years of providing all-male
housing, Cornhusker Co-op is planning to
Their new house at 23rd and U street,
near the Acacia and Beta Sigma Psi houses,
will be complete in May and will open coed
facilities next fall.
The idea to become coed was formulated
last fall by Co-op president Dennis Demmel.
He presented a report on the proposal to the
Housing Policy Committee, which passed it.
The Council on Student Life added their
endorsement and it is now subject to review
by the Regents.
MEMBERSHIP IN Cornhusker Co-op is
not selective. Anyone is allowed to fill out
an application, according to Demmel.
There will be three floors for living, one
for women and the other two for men. In
addition, there will be two housing directors,
who according to the report will be either
graduate students or full time faculty
One purpose behind becoming coed is
stated in the report as allowing students of
the opposit sex to meet one another in a
relaxed atmosphere. Another is providing for
more informal interaction among its

Cornhusker Co-op is University approved
housing that is student owned and operated.
Therefore, freshmen are eligible. It is
co-operative in the sense that all the
members take a part in keeping it running.
They are assigned work details on a
rotational basis for different areas of the
house. According to the report, this not only
functions to keep the house in order but also
creates better relationships between
THE MEMBERS of the house choose
officers and there is an executive council.
Activities are co-ordinated in the house
concerning athletic, social, educational and
One reason for the Cornhusker Co-op is
to allow students to enroll at the University
who would otherwise have difficulty
meeting expenses. Living costs in the Co-op
are about 25 per cent lower than the
dormitories, states the report. -
The precedent for co-ed living was set at
Burr Hall on East Campus and has been
followed by Schramm Hall and Centennial
College. The experiment has been a big
success, according to arry Pilger, chairman
of the Housing Policy Committee. Anyone's
objections to it are the result of ignorance,

Jackman, Fiji member.
Responding to the old adage of
necessity being the mother of
invention, Jackman called on
his experience as a cook last
summer at the Ogullala Holiday
A colossal culinary creation
of pork chops, baked potatoes,
tossed salad and cherry pie a la
mode emerged from the
Jackman kitchen. Of his choice
of cuisine Jackman said, "It
was all we had. We were lucky
to have it."
Jackman refused to take full
credit for filling the collective
Fiji stomach noting that Fiji
housemother Mrs. Warren
Andrews helped with the
Fiji house members lauded
Jackman's effort with '"better
than usual-not as greasy" and
"great; a real fine meal."

University ground crews
Tuesday were busily digging
out the University from 1 1
inches of snow and predicted
that most of the student
commuter lots should be
cleared for Wednesday
The University's Physical
Plant employed 30 men and 15
pieces of snow removal
equipment Tuesday to clear
the snow that forced
cancellation of classes all day
Monday and most of Tuesday.
However, dormitory parking
lots were clogged with cars and
the ground crews were not
expected to start clearing those
lots until Wednesday.
Gail Gade, director of
campus security and traffic,
said Tuesday the snow plows
will clear out the snow within a
few feet of the cars in the
dormitory lots so the vehicles
can be backed out.
On East Campus, crews
spent most of Tuesday clearing
roads and were expected to
have most of the parking lots
cleared by Wednesday.
A Physical Plant spokesman
said only a few commuter lots
on the city campus would not
be cleared for the start of
Wednesday's classes. He said
the metered lots near Selleck
Quadrangle and the Nebraska
Union and the small lots south
of 17th and R will not be
cleared until later Wednesday.
The fairgrounds parking
area had been cleared by
Tuesday and the shuttle buses
were scheduled to be in
By Tuesday on the city
campus, most of the faculty
and staff lots had been cleared
and the streets around the
campus were open to traffic.
