My way of perpetuating

Last Saturday morning a
French movlo was presented at
a local theater and several of
tho local citizenry wero no littlo
annoyed by a young oaf who
indulged himself in hearty horse
laughs during tho love scenes of
tho film. These scenes were
hardly of tho headlong typo so
popular with American fans.
They wero, instead, more bu

with a new outlet for tho convivial
impulses which so often move
them to call girl friends and im

tho Kosmet Klub office door, is a
sign, neatly lettered by President
Bobby Pierce, announcing office
hours. At the bottom of the sign,
it soys that one can call F-3338
for ''information." Just what in
formation is available nt F-333H,
Pierce wouldn't soy. Incidentally,
as ho strode around the office with
his mouthful of carpet tacks re

Wo see by the Associated
press that a Chicago psycholo
gist advises parents to attend
prize fights. He maintains that
the emotional stress of a prize
fight allows them to release the
pent-up effects of countless irri
tations which they surpress for
tdc sake of their children. That
may explain why a blonde we
saw sitting beside her husband
at a wrestling match a few
weeks ago was screaming, "Kick
him in tha belly!" And it might
explain why the former Alice
Eeckman and her husband were
at the same match. If so. why

There arc certain events which
provide story tellers with swell
backgrounds on which to build.
The topic of current interest which
fits these purposes is the well
known blizzard of '"88," and a bar
ber, as one might guess, offers
the best yet. He tells of how he
fought his way home thru the
storm with his father. He then
adds that the rest of the children
stayed at the because
their parents had phoned and
asked that they be kept there.
(Yes, it bad to be explained to ns
that there were no telephones in
country schoolhouses in 1888).
We hereby endow a foundation
for tho reward of somebody who
will offer a swift and sure pun
ishment for those persons who
stride vigorously up to one on
mornings such as we have en
joyed recently, and chirp, "Well,
is it cold enough for you?" It is
just such people who change
their gag for summer to, "Hav
ing any trouble keeping warm?"

the desk quietly).

the Harvard Lampoon beautifully
satiristic, the California Pelican
outspoken, and the Stanford Chap

rounds of the mags. Such sheets

Formerly of Outhlulc Inlerenl.
Although celebrations of Char
ter day have occurred on tho cam
pus only during the last three
years, duo recognition of tho
founding of the University of Ne
braska has been given for thirty
years by graduates. Charter day
has been more significant out of

campus until recently, when spon
sors of tho occasion sot out to
make it an important tradition on
the campus.
"I believe very sincerely that
Charter day at least forms an ap
propriate setting for building up a
fine tradition and should serve to
promote a continuous Interest in
the university," said Dean T. J.
Thompson. "Special honor on this
day should be given to the regents
who havo served the university,
and to those professors who have
been concerned in the development
of the university over a long period
of time, particularity those on an
emeritus stutus."

methods by which these dangers
might be eliminated. His article is

Rerouting of the road and the
construction of overpasses are the
two methods used by engineers to
day, according to Schlitt, C. E.

crossings in the state and most of
them can be corrected by either
of these two methods, he points
out. The article is further explain

Walter Gloor, M. E. '36, presents

In Home.

head of the picture department of

store, discuss the value of pictures
and their place in the home at the

Smith hall last evening.
Opening her discussion by point
ing: out the importance of proper
homo decorating, the speaker con
tinued by explaining that the gen

choose pictures which fit into a
home according to tho type of the
house. She concluded this idea by
stressing the modern trends in pic
tures. Three Types Displayed.
Three dosses of pictures were
displayed for the audience in illus
tration of Mrs. Moore's lecture.
Explaining in detail the various
types of etchings and the manner
In which they were made, the
speaker continued by pointing out
two additional types of pictures
which would be found in a well
furnished home. These included the
class called engravings and nu
merous types of prints.
Thruout the discussion the
speaker repeatedly pointed out and
illustrated the importance of se
lecting frames which were suit
able for the picture and which were
able to bring out the true beauty
of a painting.
In concluding her speech, Mrs.
Moore declared, "It is more essen
tial to have the proper pictures
on the wall than to have up to date
furniture in one's home.'

Consisting of an all-male cast of

Pierce. Hastings, Grand Island,
Columbus. Fremont, Omaha, and
Uoatriec are now being considered,

are being contacted.
The committee that chose thn
play from a list of nine competing
for the $50 prize awarded to tha
winner consisted of Garlow, Pierce,
Schwenk, Schmidt, race, Iverson,
and Dr. Ireland, the latter having
charge of the music.
"Although four of tho plays sub
mitted were of a superior quality
that would insure a successful pro

Exposure' because it will afford
opportunity for better costumes
and music. The decision to tako
the show on the road was not
made until the play was proven
worthy of the trip, and we're sure
this production will make as big a
hit with outstate audiences as it
will with students."
