Students to Buy Now
At Low Prices.
Husker Coed Contest Closes
With Completion of
"The Initial sale of year books
has been extended for a period of
one more week, to definitely end
on Nov. 11, the last day of sales
at which the present discount will
be offered," Charles Skade, busi
ness manager of the Cornhusker,
stated yesterday.
The sale has been gaining
momentum each day from the be
ginning of the sale, but Skade
states that the number sold is far
from the necessary number that
must be sold by the end of this
week. "Students must co-operate
with the student publication if they
expect to receive the full benefit
of the bargain offered in this sale,"
he said.
The business manager feels that
the support given the Annual dur
ing the first week was no indica
tion of the feeling of every
true student, but that the students
have no doubt been waiting to pur
chase their books during the next
week, and "it can not be too im
peratively stated that success of a
Coruhusker depends upon the sup
port of every individual of the uni
versity." When the final count of sales is
made Friday, Nov. 11, Skade be
lieves that students will have taken
advantage of the special bargain

Thompson Says Skits Have
Entertainment Value
And Talent.
"An unusually good array of
talent and entertainment value"
was the statement made Friday by
Jack Thompson, chairman of the
Kosmet Klub judging committee,
concerning the acts judged, after
all skit entries for the Thanksgiv
ing Morning Revue had been con
sidered by the committee. Judging
took place from Tuesday to Thurs
day of last week.
Eighteen skits, representing
twenty-seven campus organiza
tions were entered for the revue.
The judging committee, consisting
of Thompson, Joe Alter, Frank
Musgrave, and Wally Frankfurt,
will meet in the near future and
make the final decision as to the
acts to be used in the production.
"Practically all of the skits we
judged possessed great entertain
ment possibilities," Thompson de
clared Friday. "It will be difficult
for the committee to finally decide
upon the skits to be used in the re
vue." Practice Evidenced.
The points given the greatest
consideration by the judging com
mittee were talent used in the act,
the idea of the skit, and the pos
sibilities. Skits were not expected
to be in perfect running condition,
but most of them were presented
with evidence of much practice,
members of the committee stated.
As yet, no definite number of
arts for the show has been decided
upon, but the selection will be
made within a few days and a
time limit placed on each act.

Magazine Publishes Article
by Instructor in Law
The Journal of Radio Law re
cently carried an article written
by Prof. Lawrence Void of tne col
lege of law on the subject "Defam

condensation of the materials on
the subject of liability of radio
stations which were presented to
the Nebraska Supreme Court in
the writer's brief submitted in the
case of Sorensen vs Wood (243 N.
W. 82.)
As the court to a considerable
extent adopted the views contend
ed in that brief, and as the de
mand for copies of the brief has
far exceeded the available supply,
this article was prepared and pub

substance of the brief more gen
