The opinion of Dean J. E. Le
Rossignol, dean of the college of

purpose of the conference on farm
problems, which is to be held Nov.

for the purpose of getting differ

tbe lowest point that has been
touched in years. However, we
hope the corner has been turned."

Business Manager Charles Skade

The enthusiasm shown by the
students during the first day of
the campaign reveals that the
price of the 1933 book, which is
the lowest in the history of the
Comhusker, appeals to the pros

Nebraska's year book is the lowest
priced annual of any like size book
in the Big Six schools.

To Students of the University of
Next Sunday, November 6. is Go-to-Chnrch Enn
daj at tbe University of Nebraska. This is a tradi
tion of long standing at the University and I hope
that many students who have cot yet identified
themselves with a church here, will attend tbe church
of their choice this Sunday, thus beginning to take
an interest in tbe religious life of this community.
Such interest is not altogether unselfish. Tbe
greatest contribution that tbe college man or womnn
receives from religion and its accompanying service
is undoubtedly an elevation of ideals. Religion hai
enriched the lives of thousands of young people and
it will do the same thing for you.
To each one of you it may have a different mean
ing but I desire to pass along the suggestion that you
atend church somewhere on next Sunday. The Lin
coln churches welcome you.

About twenty plans for the pre
