Closing Hours
Decision Near
The student affairs committee
will meet next Thursday to dis
cuss 1 a. m. closing hours on Fri
day nights. Final decision on the
matter will be made by the com
mittee, according to Ray Hawk,
director of men's affairs and mem

ald, the committee may decide to
grant the late closing hours tem
porarily in cases where such a
move is needed, if they cannot
decide on a blanket policy for all
Friday nights.
Previously, the ASUO council
and the student union board put
themselves on record as favoring
the late closing hours, but the
student affairs committee was not
able to act on the measure be
cause of the absence of one of
it’s members, Mrs. Golda P.
Wickham, director of women’s af
fairs, during her recent illness.

From Vocabulary
By Larry Hobart
The word “pigger” may disap
pear from the college vocabulary
according to the indication of to
day’s poll.
It seems that men and women
would like to sit together at athle
tic contests, even if it means break
ing an old tradition. At least that
was the general opinion expressed
by students who were asked the
question, “Do you favor the abolish
ing of segregation of men and
women rooters at football games?”
Lewis Eggert—sophomore in ar
chitecture and allied arts—“Make
room for progress! Let’s break the
Austin Peterson—senior in busi
ness administration—“I would like
to see the rule, abolished as I am
married and could then sit with
my wife on the student’s side of
the field. Men would be less apt
to swear if sitting with women.”
Ilia Edwards—freshman in edu
cation—“I think that the rule
should be abolished. The girls could
still sit together, but girls could
date and they might give the boys
better spirit.”
Gary Sems—junior in pre-med—
"The inhibitions caused by sitting
with women would lessen the spirit.
Men and women should sit in sep
arate sections.”
Anne Cunningham—graduate
student in psychology—“Abolish
ing segregation at games is a fine
idea. It might get rid of those
weird, shrill screams from the
women at games. Of course, I’m
not a screamer myself.”
Dick Lee—junior in pre-law—
“I’d like to sit with the women,
but I hate to see the tradition go.”
Peggy Mainer—sophomore in
Sociology—“I think that men
should sit with women. It would
promote more spirit if they mix.”
Betty Jo Berannon—senior in
psychology—“I think more girls
would go to games if they left it
the way it is now. There might be
better spirit though. It’s worth a
try at least.”
Bill Crilchlow—senior in busing
administration—“There should be
three sections—men, women and
a section for piggers. That system
works at other schools.”
Dixie Lucas—freshman in liberal
arts—“It seems rather juvenile to
have to separate men and women.
I think that abolishing segregation
would be a good idea.”
Who Lives Next Door?
• What's wrong, Joe? You finally
got that new house, didn’t you?
You ought to be real happy. But
you look like you ate something
that didn’t agree with you.
Worried about the people next
door? Why? Different religion?
Different sounding names?
So what?
Stop worrying, Joe. You’ll find
them real Americans. You may
even get to like them. If you don’t,
that’s all right too. Just leave
them alone and they’ll leave yon
alone. But the chances are, once
you really get to know them, you’ll
find them okay.
In the meantime, count your
blessings. You’re in a fine new
house with improvements that
you couldn’t find anywhere else
but in America. And how did
America get that way? Because
of a lot of people with even fun

ones your neighbors have. Names
