Husker Yell Squad
An apology is due. The letter In Monday's
Daily Nebraskan signed L. David Allen was
not written by him. The letter was a joke, and
there was no intention that it be published.
From the real writer and from those who
knew about it and did nothing, our
apologies extended to David Allen, the
Daily Nebraskan and its readers.
We are writing this letter in regard to tho
land which the University leased from the
The spokesman for the University said this
land would be cleared in about one week and
would be available tor commuter student
parking. It has now been three weeks since
they started clearing away the debris and still
no parking spaces are available. It looks like
the University is going back on its word.
Two green "Restricted Area No. 20" signs
were placed there about a week ago. Now we
notice those signs have been replaced with a
red "Restricted Area 'X " sign, which is for
We would think, with the enormous
parking probiem the University already has,
it would not want to add to it. We're sure
there are several hundred other commuting
students who feel the way we do.
Two Commuting Students
After attending three 1974 "Big Red"
football games this season, 1 must comment
on tHe HusKer Yell Squad. .
In comparison with yell squads from other
teams we've played, ours has to be rated in
the lowest fourth.
What happened to the "one to one"
combination suggested last year? The squad
would look much better and more well
rounded if there were eight guys to match the
eight girls on it. How can attention be put on
the squad and Its yells when the girls are
busy with their routines and their aren't
enough guys to lead yells in the East
Stadium? No wonder other schools have such
outstanding yell support. They have e'ven
I think the problem in selecting more guys
for the squad is in the fact that the present
squad dislikes newcomers or ' ; afraid to
change to a new uniform to accommodate the
increase of guys.
Nebraska definitely needs an improved
squad to match its athletic talents.
This letter may be useless because most
students don't care about the raising of
student fees. However, someone has got to
start asking questions about where our
money is going. . ,
Case in point: the Alumni Association. The
Alumni Foundation receives funds from
alums to operate, and this is as it should be.
But do students realize that the Alumni
Association also is getting 5a cents per
student per semester? (That's $20,000 a
year.) This group got their undeserving
finger in the pie a couple of years ago and has
managed to keep it in ever since.
I, for one, resent the fact that Student fees
are supporting an alumni organization, not to
mention some of the programs it funds. Let
the alums pay for this group if they want
it not the students!

Dear Editor, ,
i see in Monday's Daily Nebraskan ("
Sammy' bonfire," Oct. 7) that an old
tradition has returned to UNI, that of the
bonfire. Once again, the tradition of
environment?! pollution also has been
Living on the west side of Abel Hall, I do
not look forward to having my room filled
with unnecessary smoke and ashes. The air
quality in Lincoln is bad enough without a
large, smoky fire to add to it. if school spirit
is to be drummed up, why don't they do it in
a moro constructive way, like building
banners or craning up the campus instead of
The location of the proposed bonfire is
such that if the vind comes from any
direction, one high-rise building or another
will be smoked out. -
Anothe - item to look at is the statement
mads by Mark Smith that "naturally the
freshmon members will be doing jnost of the
work." To me. that shows a complete
desregard tor the Inter-Fraternity Council
rule prohibiting pledge hazing, as weli as
show! no how a fraternity house can harass its
seven pledges to dig a 10-foot hole so the
whole house can take the credit in media
If ail of the work is to be done by the seven
freshmen, why don't they call it the
"destruction of the Greek system" annual
bonfire and hope the wind blows the flames
to the house. Only by large public outcry will
this nonsense stop.
if my right to clean air and pledges' rights
to be equals instead of peons are to be
protected, there should be an investigation
into tru3 harassment of pledges and other
