VM BLUES WIN WITH CLEAN SWEEP RUSSELL LAYS IMPORTANCE RURAL PEOPLE Noted Irish Economist and Poet Says Cities Take Country's People. TALKS AT CONVOCATION Philosopher Declares That Urban Life Causes Degeneration. Gcorg rtiiMfolI. noted Irish eco nomist, 1'i't, and philosopher ad dressed an all-university convoca tion Tuesday morning tn the StiiHt t theater. He was introduced by Chancellor K. A. Burnett. The speech wan broadcasted over the western network of the National Broadcasting company. Mr. Kns'ell tiHik a hi. topic. "The Philosophy of Kural and Community Life." "K Is not the custom in your country to regard poets as eco nomic authorities." said Mr. Bus Rell, "but during: the Inst twenty five years, I have been th adviser of the Irish farmers, started hanks, published and edited agricultural newspapers, and written books, that have been read in piactlcally every country of the world. I am not saying: this to glorify myself, but only that you can understand that I have some background for what I will say today." Pioneer In Co-operation. The Irish Agricultural Organiz ation society with which Mr. Rus sell has worked is first the English speaking organization to under take the task of building up rural co-operation. Mr. Russell stressed the impor tance of focusing creative imagin ation on the problem of rural so ciety. He compared modern mothnHa of transnortation with these of the medieval times, when people born in a rural community were unable to migrate to the ur ban centers. Forsees Condition. In view of the progress of the United States Mr. Russell believes that this condition of rural exodus, is more likely to affect this coun try, than it is the countries of Europe. "Your cities are teeming with vitality, and energy drawn from the country aides of all na tions," said Mr. Russell but when the country deteriorates to such aa extent that it can no longer supply the city, the city will also deteriorate." Mr. Russell called attention to the statement of Wheeler McMil lan, American economist that 15 percent of population was all that was necessary 40 pursue agricul ture, and even 10 percent of the population, properly educated could supply this country with its agricultural needs. Prophesies Decline. "But if your population becomes 90 percent urban your humanity will begin to deteriorate because the cities will have reached a point whers efficiency will allow the people to io less work," de clared Mr. Russell. Mr. Russell is of the opinion that America needs at least 20 percent of her popula tion in the rural districts. "Try and build up a rural civili zation that will be so pleasant, so prosperous, that the children will not want to leave," advised the speaker. However, Mr. Russell does not advocate conflict between the rural and urban communities. They are fundamentally one, pointed out the speaker, and or ganization makes the farmer a better buyer for the city's prod ucts. Urges Co-operatives.

ASKS FOR CO-OPERATION Taking of first pictures tor the Junior and senior and fraternity and sorority sections of this year's Cornhnsker will start today, ac cording to Kenneth Gammill, edi tor of the yearbook. The time limit has been set at a much ear lier date this year than last year. The photos must be sent to the publishers before the first of the year. "It is absolutely necessary that we receive co-operation from the student body in this matter," the editor said yesterday, "as our con tract states that the pictures must be at the publishing house at a comparatively early date.

It is hoped, by members of the yearbook staff that students will make their appointments early, for the picture taking will end at an earlier time. The presidents of fraternities and sororities have been asked to appoint a member of their organi zation to take charge of the pic ture appointments. This member is expected to aid in securing the photographs for his or her organi zation.
