Attorney Addresses Group
On Prohibition During
Tuesday Service.
C. Petrus Peterson, Lincoln at
torney, gave a talk on "Facing
Life's Problems" at Vespers Tues
day evening in Ellen Smith Hall.
His discussion dealt with prohibi
tion. Mr. Peterson classified the three
modes of attack upon the prohibi
tion problem as moral, hygienic,
and governmental. It is his belief
that the legislature does not have
the support of public opinion; he
stated that the most common fal
lacy of which the American people
are guilty is that they assume that
they can solve a problem by writ
ing laws in a statute book.
He pointed out the extent to
which popular opinion shapes our
actions, and predicted that the new
step about to be taken in the pro
hibition field will not be a success
unless young people of today give
it strong endorsement. In con
clusion, he emphasized the fact
that the first requisite in facing
life's problems is the ability to
think things through to a sound
Vesper services were led by Ger
trude Clark. Miss Berniece Miller
announced that there will be a
worship group meeting at 7 o'clock
Thursday evening in F.llcn Smith

First Survey of I its Kind.
A similar survey was made in
Buffalo and Syracuse, N. Y.. in the
fall of 1931. The information ob
tained in the Lincoln survey will be
compared with these studies, as
well as with the census figures of
The results of the study will
prove useful to administrators of

L. C. Regler Reports
No Damage on Campus
No damage on the campus is
the report of L. C. Regler, the
campus cop, as a post-mortem to
Hallowe'en. The only disturbance
seen or reported was the attack
ing of a couple of Sig Alphs by
a mob of the young juveniles from
hereabouts. The Sig Alphs were
armed with their trusty paddles
but the battle was not considered
won till the arm of the law ap
peared on the scene and the mob
melted away.

Congressman in Tuesday
Talk Says He Thinks
Party Will Win.
Tells Audience Older Men
In Politics at Work
For Younger.
"I believe that things are going
the democratic way," stated Con
gressman John H. Morehead Tues
day afternoon in his address to the
Young Democrats club of the Uni
versity of Nebraska.
"I am of the opinion that the
democratic party will be success
ful, but if the democrats get into
office, have the support of con
gress, and then do not better con
ditions, I will be back here to help
clean them out."
"Conditions can be improved,"
the congressman said, and in just
the manner that a business is put
back on a successful basis after it
was suffering reverses. If my
party does not make things right
I will be fighting at the next elec
tion in favor of some other party
that will."
At the present time people are
thinking more of what the parties
stand for than ever before, More-

was to look over the list of accom

Profit-Sharing Plan Would
Make '33 Cornhusker
Cost Only $3.95.
Skade Says Success Rests
On Number Sales in
Present Drive.
Charles Skade, in explaining the
profit-sharing plan being offered
by the 1933 Cornhusker in their
sales campaign, said tnai me uiu
mate cost to students who buy dur
ing this sale may be as low as
$3.95. "In the event, that 1,000
books are sold, a large saving can
be made on the printing of the
books, which is to be passed on to
the students in the form of a sav
ings dividend next spring."
Jack Thompson, president of the
Innocents Society, made the ronow
ing statement regarding the Corn'
husker's policy. "It seems evident
that the Cornhusker profit-sharing
plan is finding great favor among
prospective purchasers. When as
fine a tradition as the Cornhusker
can be maintained on this basis, it
should receive the finest support
from the student body."
Lowest Price In History.
The present campaign for the
Cornhusker sale has met the ap
proval of the entire student body,
if the results of the first two days'
sale is an indication that can be
considered. Students are specially
interested this year in buying at
the lowfest possible prices, and the

This is a part of the general

"Religious drama is a key to

Shotting at Game
"Pretty Good:
Declaring that he smelled liquor

bration of homecoming at Ne

Agent Charles H. Davis told mem
bers of the St. James Methodist
church Sunday that the dry laws
are enforced as efficiently and as
well as other laws.
Mr. Davis termed the showing
"pretty good for a homecoming
crowd!" when, he said, rumor has
it that ruauy people are out to
celebrate. Mr. Davis who was an
officer before prohibition days and
has been a federal agent since, de
clared that it seems absolutely ob

was true in preprohibition days

Dr. Lugn Describes
JSebraska''s Ice Age
At Meeting Monday
Students shivering on their way
to eight o'clock classes these bit
ter, cold mornings probably think
it's impossible for the weather to
be much colder. And to make this
thought contain even more weight,
Dr. A. L. Lugn of the University
of Nebraska geology department
declared, in a speech given at the
meeting of Sigma Xi, hon yc so
ciety, at Morrill hall Monday eve
ning that an average temperature
of eight or ten degrees lower will
result in the formation of another
glacier like the one which covered
our state in the pleistocene ago.
Dr. Lugn, in his talk, described
conditions causing the great gla
cier, and exhibited maps and
charts showing how the ice, in
melting, had formed great valleys.
These valleys, he added, have been
filled with sand and gravel, and
carry underground rivers irom
which we obtain much of our wa
ter supply.
"It is possible." Dr. Lugn said,
"that we are living in one of the
warm periods between glacier for
mation. However, it is doubtful if
the new glacier would be as se
vere at those of the ice age."
See 'Key Man' of Campus if You
Think You'd Like to Unlock any
Building, Room, Desk or Drawer
Contrary to the belief of students of the University of
Nebraska, not Chancellor Burnett, not Dean Thompson, not
Finance Secretary Gunderson, hut Philip J. Harrison, is liter
ally the "kev man" of the campus.
Sir. Harrison, whose office is part of that of the operating
superintendent in the Administration building, has under his
keys to lockers, desks, drawers,
rooms, buildings and cabineis, con
nected with the university. These
keys are being checked in and out
almost daily, making necessary a
complex system of organization.
Every key has a number, a name,
and a certain peg on which it
hangs when not in use. The keys
are placed on these pegs which in
turn are fitted into drawers. The
drawers, one for each building, or
part of a building, are kept in the
large vault in Mr. Harrison's office.
Take Great Precautions.
Many problems have confronted
Mr. Harrison during his ten years
in this deDartmnt The matter of
cnecking out keys is one oi
most important of these
Great precaution must be taken,
according to Mr. Harrison, to see
that keys are issued only to per
sons of authority. The position
and authority of applicants for
keys must be investigated thor
oughly before tbev are given the
key they wish. When a key is
checked out it ia treated in much
the same manner as a library
book. Eac.1 key has a file card on

Scheme Successful in Past
For Triad Dances
Held Annually.
The prospect of several Greek
letter groups joining in giving
parties at the coliseum, a sugges
tion made because of the expense
incurred by Individual groups en
tertaining at downtown parties,
met with the approval of fratern
ity and sorority members whose
opinions in the matter were asked
Tuesday, by the Daily Nebraskan.
Plan Has Been Used.
Altho the idea is not new on the
campus, this year's financial dif
ficulties brought the plan forward,
and placed it before fraternity
groups in a greater aspect than be
fore. The Miami Triad, composed
of Phi Delta Theta, Beta Theta
Pi, and Sigma Chi annually hold
their Triad party, and in past
years, according to members of
these three groups, the party has
always been a sucess.
Alpha Chi Sigma voices the
opinion that the combination party
scheme would be exceptionally
good this year. Alpha Sigma Phi
approved the combination as did
Delta Chi and Delta Sigma Lamb
da. All three members of the
Miami Triad, Phi Delta Theta,
Sigma Chi, and Beta Theta Pi
think the combination a good idea.
According to Rus Beers, president
of Phi Delta Theta, an outside
party should be given by every
Would Prefer Ballroom.
Lloyd Loomis, Pi Kappa Alpha,
stated that he thought the idea of
combination a good one, but disap
proved of using the coliseum. "I
much prefer a down -town ball
room, because of the better facil
ities, floor, and service. The
coliseum is a poor place to dance,
because it is really too big. The
cost would be about the same."
The Alpha Phi's approve, but
said that as they already have a
downtown party planned, they
would not be willing to incurr fur
ther expense. Delta Gamma ap
proves, as does Gamma Phi Beta.
According to Violet Cross, Kappa
Alpha Theta. the idea is a good
one. 'I think this is especially
good for the groups who do not
wish to incurr the expense of a
downtown party.

Professors Forget Keys.
If vou are a member of the fac
ulty, your office key has probably
0ne chance in fifteen thousand of
opening any oiner comonuuun iu
the camnus. unless you nave a
master key, wbfch can open
eral combinations. Janitors of the
various buildings on the campus
recognize this fact. They assert
that in the matter of keys, tb
absent mindedness of the much
derided professor runs true to
form. Every day each janitor i
called upon to admit at least one
instructor who has either forgotten
his key or has left it locked inside
