' The congressman impressed on
his audience that the older men in
politics were worxing for the in
terest of the young people. At
least those older men, he said, that
were not interested primarily in
furthering their own interests. He
made it a point that it was not
possible for a man to enter public
life and become wealthy while in
office, if he were honest. "This
country needs more men who are
interested in the welfare of Uie na
tion," Morehead stated.

Cornhimker staff has been working
to save the students money on the
1933 honk.
Th nriee of the 1933 book,
which Is already the lowest in the
history of the Cornhusker, may
even be lower if the co-operation
of the students can be secured. The
profit-sharing plan, which has
been introduced this year, may
make it possible for each purchas
er to share in the profits if enough
books are sold.
First Tims Plan Used.
The Cornhusker business man-
Rcer. said. "The uniaue profit
sharing plan offered this year by
the 1933 year book is the first time
that such a nlan has been offered
to the students. It will prove or
substantial savings to all chasers
if they will co-operate with
the staff of the Cornhusker, and
nurchase their books during the
present sale.
"Tne lowest pnee onereu,
may be reduced even more if 1,000
. . . m j o ir
books are sold. The extended re
duction will be taken care of by a
refund at the end of the year when
the books are delivered which will
possibly bring the price to below
44. on the cash pavtaent plan. The
same corresponding saving will
also be effective on all sales plans
Must Vote for Three Coeds,
"This possibility will be realized
only if enough books are sold. As
the price of the book will be higher
after the initial sale is closed, or
ders must be placed now in order
to receive full advantage or tne op
portunities placed at the disposal
of the students."
Skade also pointed out that the
votes for Cornhusker Coeds must
be cast for different girls. Every
ballot gives each person three
choices. In other words, one voter
cannot cast 10,000 votes for the
same candidate. He must cast
5.000 for one girl, 3,000 for an
other for another and 2,000 for his
third choice.

step forward toward better social

of Pi Beta Phi approves the idea.

according to John Johnson, social
Jane Von Seggern, social chair
man of Kappa Kappa Gamma be
lieves that the parties would be a
success if Greek letter groups
would combine. "I wish, tho, that
the coliseum could be fixed up bet

anent decorations could be had. I
think the party would be a grand
success." According to Charlotte
English, Sigma Kappa the idea is
a good step toward reducing ex
penditures and at the same time
increasing Bocial functions.

Survey Shows That Phi Beta Kappa
Students Live Longer Than AtMetes
Mortality tables compiled by a
national insurance company reveal
j.hat the life of the studious rni
Beta Kappa is about two years
longer than his more aclivc
brother of the gridiorn while the
ordinary undistinguiched student
can hope for filtecn-bundreths of

cording to an article in the Wis
consin Dally Cardinal.
The tables, which are based on
a study of the life of 38,269 gradu
ates of eastern colleges, show sur
prising facts as regards the long
evity of the scholars and athletes.
In the group of students surveyed
6.500 were honor students, 5,000
were athletes, and the rest aver
cje rtuacnts.
It was found that the average
student may expect to live 46.YI
years, while the athlete can expect
to live but 45.58 years or a frac
tion of a year less than he. It is
particularly interesting to note
Associated Press Indicates
More College Graduates
Than in 1900.
A survey made by the Associ
ated Press indicates that there is
a marked increase in the number
of college graduates since 1900.
Other observations included: "The
chances of a boy or girl going to
high school, which were only one
in twenty-five in 1890, are now
one in two. The chances of a boy
or girl going to college, which were
oulv one in thirty-three in 1900,
are now one in six. Ten cents per
day paid by every person voting in
the United States would pay the
entire bill for public education."
Carl Julius Ernst a Member
Of University Board
For Six Years.
Carl Julius Ernst, seventy-eight
former Lincoln resident and re
gent of the University of Nebras
ka, died Tuesday at his home in
Omaha. He has been an employe
of the Burlington for fifty-six
years and at the time of his re
tirement last May, he was assist
ant treasurer of the road.
Connected with the land depart
ment of the Burlington in Lincoln,
Mr. Ernst was a member or tne
board of education here six years
and served an equal time as re
trent of the Universitv of Nebras-
O . . . . " M
ka, at one time being president oi
the board.
Was Native of Prussia.
Mr. Ernst came to this country
with his parents, his father leav
ing Silesia, Prussia, to escape the
Prussian militaristic system. His
parents first came to Nebraska
City and his rise to prominence as
an official of the Burlington reads
like a tale of romantic fiction. At
Nebraska Citv he went to work in
the Guenzel store, owned by the
father of Carl J. Guenzel, Lincoln
Never having studied English,

After working for a time in the
store, he took a position in a book
store. On Oct. 1, 1872, he began
working for the Otoe County Na
tional bank at Nebraska City.
On Feb. 1, 1876, Mr. Ernst left
the bank to enter the service of
the Burlington, from which begin
ning he worked to the top, attain
ing the position of assistant treas
urer when ne was pensionea.

Mr. Ernst helped many foreign

som. Peking is the best plnce in
the world to shop, according to Dr.
Gibbons, especially in the thteve's
market held in the temple courts.
Finds Egypt Interesting.
Egypt was Interesting because
of Tut-Ank-Ahmet's tomb and the
Valley of the Kings. Miss Gibbons
found while visiting in the Orient
that the Indian and Burman peo
ples, although close neighbors, dif
fer greatly in speech, religion, in
dress and native customs. Java
was unique for its puppet plays.
The people of the densely popu
lated island of Bali she found to be
happy go lucky. After Bs'l came

Siam. where Miss Gibbons visited
the ruins of Angor.
In China Miss Gibbons saw the
devastated war zone around Nan
king anJ Shanghai. She crossed
to I'eklng on a Blue express train
heavily guarded by Chinese ol
dirra. Only two wks before her
trip, tho guards themselves had
held up the train, which they had
been detailed to defend against
that the honor student may look
forward to 47.73 years of existence.
Two Causes.
In the opinion of the company
this longevity may be attributed to
two causes. In the first place,
physical and mental fitness tend to
accompany each other; and sec
ondly, it is difficult for a man to
excell In scholarship unless he is
In good physical condition.
The failure of athletes to come
up to the average of even ordinary
students may be attributed to the
fact that figures for much of the
study were gathered before phys
ical examinations became neces
sary for athletic competition.
Moreover, with Increased control
of athletics la the last few years
and the present system of medical
examinations in the universities, it
is probable that there is a radical
change in expectations of the ath
lete and Phi Beta Kappa based on
this survey.
