Grant of $3,500
For Research
Dean Carl Borgmann has re
cently received a grant of $3,500
from the research corporation for
experimental work on the influ
ence of environmental factors on
the cathodic polarization of com
mon metals and alloys.
Borgmann said that he is
"studying factors relating to cor
rosion, such as temperature, con
centration Of the solution, the
.amount of oxygen and the rate
of flow." One practical applica
tion which may result from the
experimentation is the treatment
of a surface by a metal.
The research corporation,
founded by Dr. Frederick Gard
ner Cottrell. scientist and inven
tor, has granted $350,000 to sci
entific research in colleges, uni
versities and scientific institu
tions since Nov. 1, 1949.
The corporation has received
patents and money from many
sources since its founding. This
has enabled investigators to pur
sue their desired research, thus
attracting them into teaching and
laboratory jobs. The research of
these scientists in turn stimulates
the students who come in con
tact with them and encourages
future scientists to continue study
in their chosen fields.
Fund to Assist
Foreign Students
The Nebraska Federation of
women's clubs will extend a
helping hand to foreign students
attending the University.
Establishment of "The Nebras
ka Federation of Women's Clubs,
inc., International Student Schol
arship fund" with the University
Foundation was announced Wed
nesday by Perry W. Branch,
Foundation director-secretary.
The clubs have contributed
$1,420 to the fund which will
support three 1950-51 scholar
ships, two of $500 and one of
$420, which will be available
nly to overseas students attend
ing the University. Recipients
may be either graduate or under
graduate students, doing satis
factory college work and in need
of financial assistance. Winners
will not be charged tuition by the
Recipients will be selected by a
committee of three composed of
the Director of Admissions of the
University, a member of the fac
ulty and the president of the
admissions or concession
ceeds in order to help
raise money for the gift.
Plans are being made to have
a faculty-senior baseball game
and -other types of organized
games for group participation.
Class Unity
The picnic will give seniors as
a group a chance to know each
other better and to further in
terest in class unity as an or
ganized group.
Ribbons similar to those sold
during Engineers Week will be
sold. Slogans will be printed on
them showing that the wearer
l's a member of the Class of
Ribbons will be sold by mem
bers of the committee. Neal
Baxter will be in charge of the
sale which will begin Ivy Day.
They will sell for 15 cents. Pro
fits will be used to help purch
ase the gift.
Senior Convo
Another highlight of Senior
Week will be a senior convoca
tion, Tuesday, May 9. All sen
iors will be excused from classes
at 11 a.m. Ao attend the convo
cation in the Union ballroom.
Speakers will be Chancellor
Gustavson, Alumni secretary
Fritz Daley and Senior Class
President Bill Mueller.
The purpose of the convoca
tion is to instill the idea of class
spirit into the class as a group
and to make students realize
their value to the University as
alumni members. Details re
garding the senior picnic will be
given at the convocation.
This is the first time for many
years that such a varied program
has been planned for the mem
bers of the senior class to parti
cipate in.
A decision to create more class
initiative and unity which might
be a lasting product among grad
uates was reached soon after the
moves for a Junior class were
first formulated this semester.

Reject Fee Hike
For Large 'Rag'
The Union additions passed; the proposal for continu
ance of a seven-column Daily Nebraskan did not.
These are the results of the official campus poll taken
last Wednesday. Nearly 4,000
each or the issues.
The Union addition proposal
was accepted, 2,513 votes for
and 1,460 against.
The issue for continuance of
the prewar size Daily Nebras
kan lost, 2,155 to 1,762.
Concert series proposal, which
died for lack of a 75 percent
affirmative vote, 2,202 votes for
and 1,687 against.
Authorization Received
The poll was authorized hv
the Board of Regents to gain
student opinion on the three
proposals. Ballots were distrib
uted in 9 a.m. classes Wednes
day, April 26. Counting of votes
was done by the elections com
mittee of the Student Council.
Results of the poll are not fi
nal, however. The University
Board of Regents at its next
meeting on Saturday, May 6,
will decide officially on the two
issues. Members of the Board
are not obligated to accept the
poll results.
If the Regents accept the re
sults, an addition to the present
city Union and a new Ag Union
will be eventually built, and The
Daily Nebraskan will return to
its war-time, five-column tabloid
Campus Issue
. These issues have been a sub
ject of campus concern for sev
eral months. A student commit
tee was established in December,
1949, to investigate the need for
Union additions. This committee
contacted students and faculty
members and studied the plans
of other universities over the
The situation for extra oper
ating funds for the Rag came as
a result of additional expenses
which were connected with pub
lishing the larger paper. Since
the Rag was increased to its pre
war size at the beginning of the
second semester, it has been op
erating in the red.
The vote was closest on the
larger -Rag issue. Only 55 per
cent of the voting students
turned down the 50-cent fee in
crease which would have con
tinned the greater size of the
publication. Forty-five per cent
voted in favor of the "king-size"
An extra levy would have
been paid by the students in a
subscription fee increase.
Union Facilities
To be included in the new
Union addition will be new rec
reational, service and cultural
facilities. A much needed Ag
Union will be built under the
new plan. The funds will also be
used to repair the existing union
The poll came as a result of
action bv University officials
who stated that any agitation for
Union improvement must come
from the students themselves.
If the proposal for a Union fee
increase of $3 is now approved
by the Regents, then $500,000 will
be available through the tuition
fee collected from each student
at semester registration. The
larger part of the fund, minus
the $100,000 asked for by the Ag
Union, would go to the City Un-
