Omaha and the state.
An engineering college would fill a
void in an otherwise attractive Omaha
market, he said.
Interested businesses now have to
send theiremployccs down to Lincoln
for schooling, he said. To avoid that,
they could choose other markets like
Chicago, St. Louis or Dcs Moines,
Schulz said. And they arc.
So far, the debate has been mostly
within the university, but Schulz said
that’s starting to change.
“The entire Omaha metro area is
becoming more and more interested
in it as it goes along,” Schulz said. “I
would say there’s a pretty good shot of
it (a separate college) happening.”
If the board approves the creation
of a separate college* Loudon said, it
would be sending a confusing mes
sage to state senators.
“We’ve got to look at the fact that
funds are scarce in Nebraska,” Loudon
“The fact is this is an issue where
we (ASLTN senators) arc standing up
and saying, ‘Hey, in January we’re
going to have to go in front of the
Legislature with a proposed budget—
and it has to be a responsible one.’”

Staff Reporter
Two hundred sixty women, rep
resenting alumnae from eight de
cades, gathered last weekend for a
banquet honoring one hundred
years of sisterhood of the Kappa
chapter of Delta Delta Delta.

The support of a
close-knit group
within a larger
organization is the
same as it was 100
years ago.

The sorority is the fourth oldest
on campus. It was founded in 1894
with eight members.
The reunion attendees spoke at
the banquet about everything from
rolling up the rugs for dances in the
30’s to the ending of Ivy Day. the
school yearbook, alumna Lynn
Roper said.
“The chapter really mirrors the
lives of young women through the
years.” Roper said.
The sorority was located in a
variety of houses before the exist
ing building at 16th and R streets
was purchased in 1926 for$40,000.
The metal fence and gates
around the house were given to the
house by General John Pershing—
the only male honorary member.
Three of Pershing’s sisters were
A lot of history has been wit
nessed inside the house through
the years.
“A group gathered around the
radio in the Tri-Delta house, lis
tening to reports of the Japanese
attack on Pearl Harbor. (There was)
gasoline rationing, sugar rationing
and nylons were practically nonex
istent,” alumna Jessie Lou Tyler
Allen said.
Some history of campus life has
just started to change after decades
ofcommon experience for students.
Registration is described in a 1920
excerpt from the chapter’s history:
“Registration at Nebraska pre
sents a perfect chaos which finally
evolves itself into hours of seem
ingly endless lines. An official re
port has not been made, but rumor
has it that 7000 students registered
this year.”
Positive aspects of sorority life
as well as membership have been
steady throughout the years, Roper
“The support of a close-knit
group within a larger organization
is the same as it was 100 years ago,”
Roper said.
Women attending the banquet
came from as far away as Califor
nia and Maine. Many have main
tained close friendships forover 50
years, she said.
