I'KICE 5 CENTS BROl-JNEMEM PILE UP EARLY LEAD TO BEAT (-AGS 40-32 Whitaker Grabs 11 Points In First Period Scoring Spree That Brings Win LEAD 21-6 AT HALF Late K-State Rally Almost Ties Score; Groves Leads Parade of Wildcat Team Nebraska's Cornhuskers awak ened with a start from a lethargic attack of the doldrums Monday night to find Kansas State's Wild cats pushing them furiously. Like a tornado swinging into full blast, the Huskers bombarded the net for a 40 to 32 victory to strengthen their hold on second place in the Big Six conference. Nebraska blazzed thru, the first half on strength of quick breaking offense to hold a 21 to 6 half time margin. The Wildcats, however, came back strong in the last period to at one time cut the Husker advan tage of 28 to 25. The Brownemcn retaliated with the a three minute spurt that enabled them to lead 40 to 32 when the final gun sounded. The dimunitive Hank Whitaker, senior forward, lead the Brownemen with a total of eleven points, five buckets from the field and a free throw. Nebraska offense was too swift for Kansas State to solve during the opening minutes of piny and the Cornhuskers took every ad vantage of their speed and daz zling passing attack to cross the Kansans up. With Whitaker nab bing shots from just within the foul line and under the basket with amazing regularity, the Brownemen were never in trouble. Their flash and fire, however, seemed drawn with the start of the center canto. K-State took advantage of this temporary lull to pot shot from the floor with big Ed Groves, center, leading the way. He was ably assisted by teammates who seemed endowed with all the vigor formerly pos sessed by Nebraska. They hit the hoop steadily, keeping possession of the ball and playing away from the rangy Nebraska defense until they had drawn the count to 28 25. At that time the Huskers ral lied with Forwards Whitaker and Wahlquist in the starring role and banged thru for victory. Husker superiority demonstrat ed itself from the foul lino as the two teams were separated by only one basket in the number of shots from the field. The Brownemen adeptness at the foul line was their real advantage. E FOR COUNCIL MEET Marketing Extension Agent Speaks at YWCA Vespers On Agricultural Campus.

University Men Adopt Informal Evening Collar Having long led the fashion pa rade in evening clothes, univer sity men are now stepping to the front in advocating the use of the white laundered collar. Because these men, in the course of broad ening their education, could scarcely overlook the importance of the fitness cf things they are now favoring the use of laundered collars on the proper occasions. Fortunately, they are not carry ing this practice to the extreme, as was done in early 1900 when the collars worn thfn appeared to be designs of the Spanish inquisi tion. Male students of the universi ties further concede that clothes suitable for on campus activities are unsuitable for town and week end wear. Consequently, it is Hcarcrly possible to discern stu dent in town from the successful business men who, presenting that well pressed look, wear the white, laundered collar. Mew Candidates for Teaching Jobs Meet All new candidates for teach ing positions for the school year 1936-37 will meet with Mr. Moritz, director of teacher placement, on Tuesday, Feb. 11, in Social Science auditorium at 4 p. m.

Penny Carnival Booth Plans Due By 5 Wednesday Plans for booths or side shows for the annual Penny Carnival to be held in Grant Memorial, Feb. 22, sponsored by the Coed coun selors, are to be submitted at Mrs. Westover's desk in Ellen Smith hall by 5 o'clock Wednesday, Eliz abeth Moomaw, president of the counselors' board, reminded or ganized women's groups on the campus. The idea of allowing the differ ent organizations to submit plans for the carnival entertainment is a new one, being initiated this year by the board. Previously the Coed counselors have taken com plete charge of the festivity. "Though this is the first time the idea has ever been tried here, 1 feel that it will provide a more interesting and diversified enter tainment," Miss Moomaw stated. "The support and enthusiasm which was shown by the group presidents at the meeting Feb. 6 ensures' the co-operation of the women on the campus." Miss Moomaw also stated that the plan had been tried on other campuses with acclaimed success. The plans submitted will be judged by a group from the Coed counsellor board, who will select the ones showing the most variety and originality for presentation at the annual carnival. SHAKESPEAREAN PLAY Students May Buy Tickets To 'Midsummer Night's Dream' With Reduction. As the result of an arrangement brought about through the efforts of the dramatic arts department of the university, students may be admitted to the Varsity theater to see "A Midsummer Night's Dream" at the reduced prices of 40 cents for matinees and 55 cents for the evening showings on Feb. 10, 11, 12, and 13. Tickets for admission at this special price may be secured at the Daily Nebraskan office or in the Temple theater at the office of Prof. Alice Howell, head of the dramatic department. Expressing her hope that as many persons as possible will ta"te advantage of this opportunity, Miss Howell commented, "We hope that through this offer the pro duction of the well known Shake spearean play may be open to all students on the campus, since it is undoubtedly a worthwhile pres entation." According to the dra matic department head this is the first Max Reinhardt directed pic ture ever, to be presented here. Special tickets for university and college students entitle a stu dent to any available seat in the theater. No seats are to be re served on these tickets. Showings of the picture are held twice daily with a matinee beginning at 2:30 o'clock and the evening presenta tion taking place at 8:30 o'clock.

The girls demanded window shades! , . With all due regard for feminine modesty on the campus, those in authority found it impossible to obtain window shades from down town stores immediately. The girls protested; the faculty pro crastinated. And then in the wood work and keys department of the university a little man named John Gunnarson came out with the so lution. He rented a sewing ma chine, bought a few yards of cur tain material, and sat down to make the curtains himself. He's been doing it ever since, not only for the dormitories, but for the office buildings and class rooms both on the city and agri cultural campuses. Today he can sit down at his Singer sewing ma BAPTIST STUDENTS HEAR MISS ADELSECK Society Leader Discusses Cooperative Movement Preparing for Kagaica.

University class of the student group meets at 12 o'clock to 1 o'clock with Dr. C. H. Walcott as leader. TRACES HISTORY Fl Phi Beta Kappas Learn of Present Developments in Genealogical Science. Gilbert Doane, librarian at the university, spoke at a dinner meet ing of Phi Beta Kappa last night at the Grand hotel on the subject of "Genealogy." He sketched briefly the history of Genealogy and outlined what is being done today in the study of this historical science. There has been some interest in tracing fanv lly lines for about 3,000 years. The Hebrews have been especially in terested because of the names mentioned in the Old Testament. In Roman times, many traced their descent from Aeneas. Later, the newly rich or "parvenus," anxious to establish their position in Ro man society, undertook to fake pedigrees. The land records are about the only records that geneal ogical students can depend upon. With the rise of agriculture in England in the fifteenth century, there was another revival in genealogy. The Harolds of that time were notorious for their faked pedigrees. It was not until the nineteenth century, however, that there was any serious study made. Mr. Doanca also outlined the characteristics of a good genealO' gical education, how to find sources, and how to proceed in tracing a pedigree. This meeting of Phi Beta Kappa is the third of a series held throughout the year. crowds at Athletic Department Shows Slow Motion of Husker Panther Football Battle. Pictures of the Rosebowl game, the Rosebowl parade, the Pittsburgh-Nebraska game, and the high spots of the Chicago-Minnesota game are expected to attract a crowd of university students to the Temple theater Wednesday night at 7:15 o'clock. The pictures have been brought to the campus bv the athletic department and the Coed Counselors. The pictures of the Rosebowl game between S.M.U. and Stan ford are in slow motion, enabling the audience to see the different kinds of plays used by the two teams. Portmvine- the important fie- ures and periods in history through the use or nowers, me annual Rosebowl parade will be shown at the Temnle in its original colors. Concluding the two hour program will be the pictures ot the Pittsburgh-Nebraska game, and flashes from the Chicaeo- Minnesota conflict.

Many of the ones he cut and stitched for the first' dormitory art still in use. He has sewn from $500 to $600 worth of material into shades every year since. Occupations Vary. Making window shades Is by no means the only occupation of this man, however. He is foreman of the department that keeps the uni versity supplied with keys, doors, window frames, and furniture of every kind including a multitude of chairs. Nebraska students. It seems, are unusually hard on chairs, wreck ing from six to twelve a day in the course of the ordinary school year. The worst offender are students in the law building, who weekly send streams of incapaci tated swivel chairs into Gunnar son'a shop. Few students actually sit through a chair. Instances of chair seats having been broken are so rare as to be almost historic, but chair backs, legs and arms arc ripped off daily. A busy man John Gunnarnon.

New Officer lo Start Work on Artillery Unit Newest instructor in the mili tary department is Capt. W. R. Grove, jr., who arrived or.ly last week. As advance man for the new R. O. T. C. artillery unit. Captain Grove will spend this se mester making arrangements and schedules for installation of the unit on the Ag campus. Other in structors will be detailed later. Captain Grove has literally lived in the service all his life, for his father was an officer too. He was born in Omaha, but his father was immediately transferred. Grove graduated from West Point in 1923, and since then he has been stationed in such widely sep arated places as Texas, Vermont, Hawaii, and North Carolina. Ho comes to Nebraska from North Carolina. This is his first experience with R. O. T. C. He expressed himself as very much interested in the training work, and anxious to get on well with military students. According to Captain Grove, the old form of "bulldozing discipline" in the ariuy has given way to the rule of reason, and he will make every effort to apply the new rule in his work. Captain Grove was unable to give official details of the new unit, but it is probable that motor ized equipment will be used, and 75 mm. guns. Any basic student is eligible for the unit, although it is expected that the personnel will be largely composed of agri cultural students. Captain Grove and his small son are at present living in a downtown apartment, but they ex pect to find a home closer to the Ag college.

Amendment for the union build ing includes the only project listed among university requests that contemplates a combination grant and loan. Plans for the building will be completed within a few days and forwarded to PWA act ing state director John Latenscr at Omaha. Previous announcement of PWA officials indicated that action would be taken on the university application on Friday, Feb. 14. Fate of the long fought for stu dent union now rests in the hands of Washington authorities. Their decision will be final. Leaders of the campus drive for the union in dicate, however, that efforts will be continued despite the decision of the government agency. According to word icceivcd in directly from Col. H. B. Haekett, assistant administrator of PWA, "It is unlikely that consideration can be given to the application unless additional funds become available. As you know, the funds allocated to the PWA under the Emercgency Relief Appropriation Act of 1935 have now been prac tically exhausted." Students Repay Part of Loan. The possibility of additional con gressional appropriations bolsters hopes of campus leaders that the union project may become an ac tuality as a culmination of their campaign. The request for funMs was in the form of a 45 percent grant and a 55 percent loan. The loan is to be repaid by an assessment on each student of $1 per semester as au thorized by a recent action of the Board of Regents. Regents agreed to transfer the fees collected for th9 swimming pool construction for use in financing the new project Indicating student support of the union building, over $12,500 was pledged to furnish the student center. University publication, stu dent organization, and social fra ternities contributed the sum thru voluntary donations. Estimates for furnishings were not included in the PWA application. Situation for the building has been set by the Board of Regents. The most favorable site lies just south of Teachers college and north of Ellen Smith hall on 14th st. The campus committee in charge of the orderly development of the rity campus had a part in the se lection of the site. Davis and Wil son, Lincoln architects, have been (Continued on Page 4).
