Well, 1 didn't know that!!
Through the use of the Pinkerton detective
bureau and three over-size bloodhounds I
learned that the magazine is edited by Prof.
L K. Wimbcrly of the university Knglish de
partment. I further discovered that the maga
zine, although it has national circulation and
is ranked as one of the ten best literary mag
azines in the nation, is pra-tically unknown
to the student body.
Third Degree Grilling:
Under questioning, Kurt Porjes, business
manager of the quarterly, revealed that the
Schooner has at times been rated over such
widely recognized magazine as Harper',
Mercury and Atlantic Monthly. He confessed
that regular contributors to Ksquirc, the
American and Saturday Evening Post, kucIi
as Jesse Stuart, Sarah Utsey and Charles An

otherwise could sell elsewhere because tl.L pre

Ilespite this prominence, Porjes says that
the Schooner, since it carries no advertising,
will ( off the campus and cease publication
unless subscriptions increase substantially.
In a drive to bring the magazine to the at

circulation at the university, Tassels and the
Cornhusker staff will begin Killing subscrip

Two Husker Threats.
Nebraska marshalled its defen
sive punch in the third period to
j threaten the Panther goal. One
occasion saw tne rresneil lads
drive from the Panther 46 to the
6-yard stripe only to lose the
ball on downs.
A Roy Long-Hank Reichel pass
provided the big push in the sec
ond serious drive. With Eisen
hart and Long alternating at
blasting the line, The Huskers
marched to the six-yard stripe
where the Panthers swarmed in
to recover Eisenhart's fumble.
Only other serious Husker of

closing minutes when Long flipped

On Pacific Air
Captain Sir Hubert Wilkins, for
25 years explorer of the Arctic,
Antartic and the Tropics and com
mmder of seven expeditions to the
polar regions, will give an ad
dress, Air Supremacy and Control
of the Pacific, in the Union ball
room tonight at 8 o'clock.
Sir Hubert Wilkins was one of
the pioneers of Alaskan aerial
transport. He was the first to un
dertake delivery of heavy loads
of freight over the northern end
of the Rocky Mountains from
Fairbanks to Point Barrow. He
was the first to demonstrate the
feasibility of making airplane
landings on the frozen Arctic
Ocean far from shore.
