DP Student Relates
'Underground9 Work
(Editor's note: The following
article is by Joe Klischuk, a
Ukrainian DP student at the Uni
versity. He was a member of
the Ukranian underground In
Eastern Europe during the war.
The selection was first written
as an English ctess paper.)
Soon after World War II, com
munistic Russia, with a sudden
sweep, occupied many of the
countries in middle and south
Europe against the wishes of the
vast majority
of the peace
loving people.
To com bat
the growth of

power, these
nations formed
the anti-Bolshevist

nority groups within Russia it
self. The political platform was laid
for the purpose of expressing
the aims and objects of the or
ganization, and a conference was
held by a committee known as
the Declaration committee in
April, 1946, to set forth in a
memorandum that each nation
ha3 a right to have its own in
dependence according to its
ethonographic territory.
The ABN agreement declares
that the right of people should
be respected, and that the people
should be free to choose their
own form of government, not to
be dominated by another power.
' There are many people who,
because of opposition to the op
pression by communism, cannot
return to their homeland and are
technically known as persons
without a country, or displaced
persons. The ABN has asked in-

Fraternity Week .
Planned at NCU
The Inter-Fraternity council at
North Carolina university has
planned a week-long program for
the campus fraternities. Banquet,
discussion meets, and a field day
are slated for fraternity pledges.
Other parts of the program
suggested by the IFC. are ex

pledge classes. and a house

persons oppose the ruthless tide
of communism until they are ad
mitted to a country where they
can start a new life. In order to
inform people of present-day
happenings, the ABN has pub
lished many papers in all the
European languages.
At the peace conference in
Paris, ABN Memorandum 22 was
handed to all the representatives
of the participating nations ex
cept Russia and her satellites.
The memorandum caused a sen
sation in diplomatic circles and
resulted in the dplomats taking
a firm stand against the im
perialistic policy of Russia.
Having lived under communism
for two years, not being able to
endure it any longer and wanting
to free my country from the
yoke of dictatorship, I joined the
Ukranian underground army
which at that time was fighting
two dictatorships, Russia and
Germany, from 1941 to 1944.
During that time many men left
their families and joined the
underground movement.
I worked day and night, going
from village to village, organizing
the people so they could oppose
all forms of dictatorships. Al
though it was a great task for
any one man to undertake, I
stood under the strain until one

There are many more things
I would like to tell you. But one
thing is certain that you who

now, can destroy the roots of
communism. It is expedient that
you do so before it is too late.

More room!
That is the main dream of the
College of Agriculture.
According to the University's
ten-year building program seven
additional buildings will be con
structed on the campus before
1957. Bids for three of the build
ings have recently been request
ed by the Board of Regents.
The three buildings are an
Agronomy building a meat lab
oratory and an insectary. Agron
omy classes are being held in
four buildings on the Ag cam
pus. Much more space will be
available in a centralized build
ing for the agronomy work.
Space Limited
Quarters are rather cramped
in the old building which houses
the meats laboratory. In it stu
dents learn how to process 'meat
and its by-products. It is really
a small packing plant.
The insectary will be used for
further study of the control and
usefulness of insect life.
The work of the College of
Agriculture is divided into three
major sections: First of these is
the regular resident teaching.
Second, the research work at
the central Agricultural Experi
ment station at Lincoln and at
five substations in various parts
of the state. The outlying dis
tricts are coordinated by the
central station located on the Ag
Experimental work with crops
and animals is carried on at the
outstate farms and on the plots
on the Ag campus and nearby
experimental farms. Part of the
research work is in cooperation
with the U. S. department of ag
riculture. Third, the agricultural exten
sion. This division carries the re
sults obtained from research to
the farm people throughout the
state. The central staff is con
cerned with organization and
administration of this program.
It is also in charge of the state
4-H club program in which over
20,000 boys and girls participate.
A number of specialists in
various lines of agriculture and
home economics aid the county
extension agents in this program.
1,000 Students
About 1,000 students are ma
joring in agricultural courses,
approximately 300 women and
700 men. About 200 faculty
members teach in the 14 depart
ments of work, which are:
Agricultural extension, agri
cultural engineering, agricultural
chemistry, agricultural econom
ics, agronomy, animal husban
