Suppling Supplies .
Before the end of the month, the University book
store will pack up its stock, bag and baggage, and move
to Its new location in Temporary B. Situated just south of
Andrews hall, the new store will have a more centeralized
location, and business should be boosted. But more im
portant, the new bookstore will have room to breathe. And
T.1th added space, the store should be able to handle sup
plies other than books.
Several attempts have been made in the past to ar
range for a set-up whereby the University bookstore could
carry supplies . . . noteboics, inK ana an tne necessaries,
but numerous obstacles lay in the way. Now that the Uni
versity store will have the space, the whole thing turns on
approval by the Regents. We wish to remind this University
directing groj to consider the advantages of a supply
Dusmess wnen iz meets next oaiuraay.
The obvious tmrrjose of the store is to see that stu
dents are supplied with materials essential for th t, classes.
An eauallv obvious corallary to this purpose is that the
business must be healthy ... it must not be constantly
holding its breath, wondering if it can make ends : eet. A
bookstore which is indirectly a Duraen on tne suaent s
pocketbook fails to fulfill its purpose and in reality offers
no advantages to its customers.
' All bookstore operators will agree that supplies are one
of their most profitable income sources, that they greatly
increase total trade. If the existence or the university is
going to be worthwhile to maintain, it must assure its own
existence as a self-supporting business. There is no advan
tage in having the store unless it is able to handle its own
operating costs. A self-supporting store has been the aim
of the administration; a supply business will increase the
possibility of making it self-supporting.
When the student purchases books he naturally wishes
to carry out the transaction at the least amount of in
convenience. If he buys his books at the University store
it means an extra trip to some other place to obtain his
supplies. More than likely he will go to the other store in the
the first place. So a supply business would have two advan
tages in this respect: it would end the extra bother for
the student, and it would increase the bookstore s business.
If the bookstore, with an extensive supply trade, found
itself operating at a considerable margin of profit, it is
conceivable that it might even be able to otter supplies at
a special, reduced rate. The University store has an un
derstanding that it won't sell books below list price, but
it is free to sell supplies below list price if business condi
tions permit it. When a student, after purchasing all his
required materials, finds that he owes a 20, 25 or 30 dollar
bill, he is more than a little concerned over finding a way
to cut down on such expenses.
.." ' In the final analysis, the possibility of arranging for
a university bookstore supply business offers many advan
tages. The student would welcome such a convenience.
Editorial Briefs
; In the last few days before vacation, students will be
turning attention to Holy Week devotion. Observance of
the pre-Easter, services began last night when approxi
mately sixty pastors led discussions at University houses
and organizations. An inter-denominational communion
service will be held Wednesday evening. The annual all
University communion, followed by a pasreant. will take
place in Emmanuel chapeL Students of all faiths are in
vited to attend the service. In our eagerness, for classes to
end, we should not forget the meaning of these Holy Week
programs. School and religion do not exist separately; our
laim is an integral part oi our daily lives.
"Cinderella," the Walt Disney
production of the story book
heroine, is a motion, picture that
should appeal to everyone old
ana young alike. Filmed in
Technicolor, the picture is show
ing now at the Stafe. Enchant
ing little heros in the picture are
the. bold mice, Jaq and Gus,
who are vying to serve Cinder
ella. The film is a light, joyous
romantic one containing a great
deal of enjoyment for the adui
ence. Some of the well known
popular song hits presented in
the picture ' are "Bibbldo-Bob-
bido-Boo," the magic words of
the Fairy Godmother; and "So
This Is Love," "A Dream Is a
Wish," "Cinderella," and "The
Work Song." One of the laugh
highlights is the sequence in
which Jaq and Gus, the mice,
outwit Lucifer, the cat, to obtain
trimmings for a dress for Cin
derella. Although in the past,
Disney has avoided stressing
romantic scenes in his pictures,
in this he permitted Prince
Charming to exchange a honey
moon kiss with Cinderella.
"Blue Grass .of Kentucky"
Told against the traditional
background of the Kentucky
derby, "Blue Grass of Kentucky,"
now at the Varsity, stars Bill
Williams, Jane Night and Ralph
Morgan. The aetress is cast as
the conniving daughter of a
wealthy stable owner whose
horses are often matched against
those of the Major Randolph
Mclvcr stables. She is obvious
regarding her love for the ma
jor's son, Lin, and stages a clever
trick which enables the Mclvor
stable to produce a derby win
ner even though one of her
fathers' consistant winners is
entered in the same race.
"There's a Girl in My Heart"
Starring Lee Bowman, Elyse
Knox, Golria Jean and Peggy
Rayan, "There's a Girl in My
Heart," will play as the co-feature.
"The Yellow Cab Man"
Starring Red Skelton, "The
Yellow Cab Man," begins Tues
day at the Lincoln. In the role
of a zany inventor who just can't
avoid accidents, and who gets a
job as a Yellow Cab driver in
the hope of demonstrating his
unbreakable elastiglass wind
shield, Skeltcn tries his best to
make the audience laugh. When
he picks up the first costumer
he jams a whole city's traffic,
and in other scenes he barely
saves himself from electrocution,
from gaseous explosion and from
drowning in a bathtub. Co-starring
are Gloria De Haven, Wal
ter Slezak and Edward Arnold.
"Cheaper by the Dozen."
The best-seller, of last year,
"Cheaper . the Dozen", will
play in motion picture form
starting Wednesday at the
Stuart With the Belvedere man,
Clifton Webb, Jeanne Crain and
Myrna Loy in the leading roles,
it is the story of an American
family with 12 children. Webb,
playing the part of Dad, refuses
a request for a . dog "because
any pet which doesn't lay eggs
is an extravagance, and buys a
victrola for the 'bathroom so the
children may listen to French
and German language records
without waste of time. Jeanne
Crain portrays a lovable 16-year
old who rebels against her
father's Victorian ways.
"So Proudly We Hall."
In a return performance on
the screen, "So Proudly We
Hail," starting Wednesday at the
Nebraska, stars Claudette Col
bert, Paulette Goddard and Ve
ronica Lake as army nurses who
gallantly fought along side of
American soldiers at Bataan
and Corregldor. The film is per
haps one of the best coining out
of the last World war. Miss Col
bert's romance is with George
Reeves, whom she marries dur
ing an air raid and spends a
honeymoon night in a fox-hole.
200 Prepsters
See Ag College
Morethan 200 junior and se
nior high school girls were, on

Washington Senator Mc
Carthy received a blast from an
influential, member qfhis own
party when Senator Lodge R
Mass.) proposed in the senate
that a 12-member non-partisan
commission be created to investi
gate disloyalty charges against
government employes. Lodge
said harm is being done by the
current investigation by Mc
Carthy and that the present
method of congressional investi
gation "often besmirches the
character of innocent persons,
weakens the position of the
United States before the world
and fails to find the really dan
gerous individuals."
Senator Lodge added: "All we
can learn so far shows clearly
that none of the current charges
(by McCarthy) has been proved."
Washington Senator Mc
Carthy charged that Owen Latti
more is a Russian agent and the
real architect of American for
eign policy in the Far East. Sena
tor McCarthy also charged that
.Lattimore is the instigator of a
secret memorandum of Far East
ern policies.
Later, Lattimore released the
memorandum which simply
stated that Lattimore advised
against "premature or excessive"
commitments in the orient. Lat
timore stated in the memoran
dum that "if here is to be war,
it can only be won by defeating
Russia not northern Korea, or
Vietnam, or even China." -
